(Minghui.org) I am 86 years old and a retired worker. I do not practice Falun Gong, but I have learned the truth about the practice, and tell people how wonderful it is because I have personally benefited from it.
My physical condition had never been good and only worsened as I got older. A few years ago, some Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) practitioners talked to me about the practice and the persecution.
I came to understand what was really happening, and that Falun Gong was being wronged. I realized that Jiang Zemin, the former Chinese leader, was the biggest traitor of China, and launched the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. I quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. All of my children have also quit.
After that, I started speaking up for justice for Falun Gong practitioners and stopped believing the lies and propaganda publicized by the CCP’s state-run media. Amazingly, my health improved. My vision and hearing became clear and I walked easily and lightly. I ate well and slept well. I had never felt this good before. I knew that I received a blessing for understanding the truth of Falun Gong.
I often thought that Falun Gong practitioners are doing great, but difficult things. They risk their lives to awaken the conscience of people by telling them about Falun Gong and the persecution. I have received great benefits from understanding the truth of Falun Gong, and I realized that I should tell others about it and the persecution. I should help them receive the same benefits as I had. If I could do so, I would then be able to do some good deeds.
People cannot avoid getting sick. Especially when farmers use fertilizers and insecticides to grow crops and vegetables. People eat these foods and put chemicals into their bodies. Over time these chemicals damage people’s health.
The people around me are mostly elderly and almost every one of them has some form of health problems. When we chatted, they always talked about their illnesses. Sometimes we also chatted about Falun Gong, and they did admit that the people practicing Falun Gong are generally in good health and are very kind.
Whenever we chatted about health and Falun Gong, I told them that reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” would benefit them greatly. And I told them stories of people who had recovered from illnesses by reciting these phrases.
Sometimes, depending on the situation, I also told them that Falun Gong is being wronged and that the CCP is persecuting practitioners. Since I didn't practice Falun Gong, they tended to accept my words.
I ran into Li Dong, someone I had not seen in a long time. He was 59 years old and he looked sad and ill. I asked him, “What’s wrong?”
He told me that he had been ill for many years and now was diagnosed with stomach cancer. He said, “I'm living day by day now.”
I felt sad for him. I tried to comfort him and told him in a lowered voice, “Don’t worry, and don’t be afraid. Just sincerely recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’, and you will recover good health. Falun Gong's Master came to save people. If you can sincerely recite these phrases every day, you will experience its power!”
I told him stories I read in brochures about Falun Gong. These stories were about people recovering from illnesses after they came to understand that Falun Gong is good and that the CCP is persecuting it.
He listened, and responded, “I believe you. I will recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ every day.”
Before we left, I sincerely wished him well and said, “Next time I see you, you will be healthy.”
One day I met him again. He said excitedly, “Friend, I'm all fine now. The cancer cells have disappeared. I eat and drink with no problem. You can see that I have gained weight!”
His sad and sickened look had disappeared – he looked healthy.
He thanked me. I responded, “Friend, don’t thank me. Falun Gong's Master saved you. You should thank Master Li Hongzhi. You should also tell people about your experience.”
I have a brother who is almost 80 years old. He felt something wrong with his stomach last year and vomited a lot. He went to the hospital and was diagnosed with advanced-stage gastric cancer, with no effective treatment. His family fell into despair.
I went to his home as quickly as I could and told him that I had a miraculous cure for him. He asked me eagerly what it was.
I told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” However, he didn't really believe me, and questioned, “Just by reciting the phrases can heal me?”
I then told him the real stories that happened to people in our area and other cities. In these stories, people had suffered from incurable diseases and visited famous hospitals seeking treatment. However, they didn't find a cure. After they were able to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” their illnesses disappeared.
My brother agreed to quit the CCP. Since the beginning of this year, he started reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day.
My brother called me two months later, and said, “Brother, I’m fine now. I went to the hospital and the doctor told me that the cancer had disappeared. I'm energetic now and I can go downstairs and walk outside. My appetite is also much better. Falun Gong is really great and miraculous. Reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' really saves lives! Thank you very much for telling me such a good thing.”
“You should thank Falun Gong's Master,” I replied. “It's Master Li who saved you!”
My brother responded, “Thank you, Master Li. I am bowing to Master!”
Although I do not practice Falun Gong, I believe in Dafa and Master Li. I sincerely hope that Master Li can come back to China soon. The people are looking forward to seeing Master come back!
