Falun Dafa Saved My Father from Death Twice
(Minghui.org) My 87-year-old father was the director of a department in a bank before he retired. He used to be an atheist because he was influenced by the Chinese Communist Party. However, his experiences of being saved from imminent death have completely changed his worldview.
My father was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer in March 2017. We took him to see specialists in Jinan, Tianjin, and Beijing. All the diagnoses were the same: in addition to cancer, exams found that my father also had heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and blood clots in his lungs and legs.
His condition then worsened, and he couldn’t speak clearly. The doctor said he would only live for two months and his normal speech would not be restored. We took father home from the hospital.
I told father the true story of Falun Dafa, but he refused to listen. I patiently told him many times to repeat in his mind, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He always shook his head. Seeing how stubborn he was, my mother got so anxious that she cried, “Hurry! I’ll repeat them together with you!” Father stared at my mom and roared, “I don’t believe it!”
As time passed, my father’s condition got even worse. My brothers took him to Tianjin Hospital when they couldn’t stand to see him suffer. I couldn’t go with them, but I begged Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa) in my mind, “Please have a Falun Dafa practitioner in Tianjin clarify the truth to my father and save him.”
My three brothers took father home a few days later. As soon as they entered our home, my brothers happily told me, “Dad is well!” Father also happily told me, “Look, I can walk.”
My brothers told me that they had met a Falun Dafa practitioner while they were pushing father in a wheelchair to have lunch outside the hospital. The practitioner told them about the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s persecution of Falun Dafa, helped them all quit the CCP organizations, and told them to repeat in their minds, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” All four of them agreed.
My father said, “This person has cultivated herself well. She was already in her sixties, but she looked like she was in her forties. She did a great job of explaining the truth [of Falun Dafa] too. The lucky charm she gave us looks elegant. When I started repeating, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,’ it worked! My legs felt lighter. I could get on my feet and walk!”
My younger brother added, “Dad, you know hospitals couldn’t cure your cancer. Why don’t you keep repeating ‘Falun Dafa is good?’ You won’t need to take those disgusting medicines anymore. Isn’t that great?” Father replied with a smile, “Sure, I will!”
Father’s medical costs were reimbursed almost entirely because he is a retired cadre, so he preferred to stay in a hospital during his recovery. However, after staying in the county hospital for 10 days, he insisted on coming back home. But he later wanted to go to our city hospital to recuperate. One evening in May, his condition suddenly got worse and he was moved to the ICU. Doctors suggested we transfer him to a bigger hospital in the city.
We live in the countryside, pretty far from the hospital. By the time I arrived the next day, our father had recovered. He was able to walk by himself. The doctor was amazed too. I asked him, “Dad, have you recited those words?” He said, “Of course! I repeat them every day.” His health continued to improve. The doctor told him, “You can be released. You are healthy now. I’m certain you will live many more years.”
Father started living a healthy and active life. He rode his bike to the market, visited his relatives, and went for walks. The people in our village witnessed the power of “Falun Dafa is good” through how he had changed. Every time one woman saw him, she said, “He died but came back to life!”
When my aunt came to visit my father, he told her, “I didn’t believe in anything spiritual, but I do now. When I was in the county hospital, I saw two ghosts in white clothes circle around my bed, but they dared not get close to me. I saw them clearly. I was too scared to stay in that hospital. I knew that these ghosts were after me, so I hurried and left the hospital.”
We finally realized this was why he had insisted on coming home from the county hospital. He saw Heibai Wuchang (two Deities in Chinese folk religion in charge of escorting spirits of the dead to the underworld), who tried to take him away from this world. If it wasn’t because of Falun Dafa, my father would have died.
When my father went to the county hospital for his monthly checkup, Dr. Song, the director of the department who used to treat my father, couldn’t believe that he was still alive. He looked at father up and down and stepped back in shock. He asked my brothers, “How did your father get well? Can you tell me which doctor he saw? I need to learn from that doctor.” Thinking about the ongoing persecution, my brothers dared not tell him the truth. They showed him father’s medical records from other hospitals. Dr. Song said, “I know these. If he had used these medicines, he would have died a long time ago.” Dr. Song looked confused and in disbelief.
As time went by, father was influenced by atheism again and started taking medicine. When I suggested he continue to repeat the life-saving words, he started finding excuses not to. He even got mad at me and fellow practitioners when they gave him the same suggestion.
One day in April 2020, my father suddenly couldn’t speak or think clearly. We took him to a hospital. He was diagnosed with late-stage brain cancer, which had spread to his stomach. They found tumors in multiple places in his body. He became increasingly pained and moaned day in and day out. The doctor prescribed the strongest painkillers, but they made his eyes roll back. Eventually he couldn’t move or speak. His face looked terribly pale and deformed.
I couldn’t stand to see him suffer, so I brought up the suggestion of repeating those words again. He agreed this time. On the second day, he said his mind became clear and the pain stopped. He looked much better. When his doctor saw him, he couldn’t hide his surprise. He kept saying, “This old man can recover from anything!”
Days after this turning point, the doctor found that my father's brain tumor was gone. He asked us immediately, “What on earth did you do to him? Can you please tell me?” This time, my whole family overcame our fear. We thought it wouldn’t be fair to Master Li if we didn’t tell the truth to the doctor. We told the doctor that father had recovered by repeating “Falun Dafa is good, and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” The doctor looked as if he had finally awakened. He realized that was how father had recovered the last time. He encouraged us, “Yes, keep saying the words since they work so well!”
Father’s amazing experiences have shown the extraordinary power of Falun Dafa and undone the Chinese Communist Party’s lies. Many people have learned how great Falun Dafa is from his experiences. They have also benefited from repeating the words.
Thank you, Master, for saving my father!
