Man in His 80s Who Had a Stroke Starts Practicing Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I have met a lot of people in China via the Internet who wanted to learn Falun Dafa after hearing more about it. I usually chat with them first and tell them that Master tells us not to only read the parts of his teachings that interest us. One man asked me if he could meditate because he is fat. One asked which book he should read after reading Zhuan Falun. One asked if there was any conflict between Falun Dafa and other beliefs, and so on. So we shouldn’t just give people information; we have to think for them and provide assistance to them according to their situations.
I went online in the afternoon on New Year's Day in 2021 and was advising a man in China to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. He told me that he had already done that online many years ago. I asked, “Is your family around? Would you ask whether they agree to quit the CCP? If they do, I will help all of them quit and they will also have this blessing.” He said he was already in his eighties and no longer takes care of other family member’s business. I said, “Then if they agree to quit after learning the facts, you can ask me for help!” I went on to tell him more about Falun Dafa. He told me that he had a stroke and was unable to move properly. He also had poor eyesight but he wanted to understand Falun Dafa.
I thought about his situation and then suggested, “I’ll send Master’s recorded lectures piece-by-piece to you every day for you to listen to. Please keep up to speed with me!” He accepted my suggestion.
Unexpectedly, good things that surprised me happened again and again!
Before he finished the first lecture of Zhuan Falun, he said, “Thank you very much, Master Li! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Thank you, Master Li, for purifying my body and purifying my soul! I have finished listening to the third and fourth sections of the first lecture. I suddenly enlightened. I truly understand that qigong is cultivation, and cultivation is to cultivate one’s character.” He also said that the content of cultivation includes Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. “It is not the Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance that I originally imagined. It is the Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance that is connected to the law of the movement and the changes of the universe. I pay respects to Your Excellency! You sacrificed your personal rest time to serve everyone. You are a true teacher. Thank you very much!”
He told me that he should concentrate on cultivating his mind and cultivate well.
I didn’t do this to help the old man heal his illness. I didn’t have the notion: “He can’t do exercises at the moment.” I passed to him the video that shows the exercises and the music for doing the exercises. I told him that there is no rush! He could do as many as he could. I only asked him to keep up to speed with listening to the lectures that I sent him every day. Unexpectedly, just after listening to the second lecture, he left me a message in the early morning of January 3: “Falun Dafa’s noble purpose is to return to the true nature. First is to purify the body. I watched Master’s video yesterday. Because I had a stroke and it’s not convenient to move the right side of my body, I followed the video and made some gestures. I felt that my right foot has changed and I can walk normally. I’m sharing this great news with you ... This is a miracle!”
He thanked me again and again. I told him to thank Master instead. He said: “Thank you, Master. Thank you very much! Thank you very much for your encouragement. I will follow what Master teaches and practice with great concentration in order to repay the teacher! Thank you!”
I’m not surprised about his changes at all: “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
As long as you truly practice, you will personally witness the mighty grace of Buddha! Many stories from during this epidemic have been published online from people who recovered by sincerely reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Another Internet friend asked me to forward some words from his heart to Falun Dafa practitioners.
“I hope you will persevere. If even you give up we will not see any hope. There are still a large number of fools among our 1.4 billion Chinese people who have been brainwashed and indoctrinated by the CCP. They are the supporters of populist nationalism and so-called ‘patriotism’ and they are the people that the CCP can take advantage of. These people most need to be awakened. Otherwise how can we shake the powerful foundation of the CCP? The awakening of these people requires you and us to work together. You are a powerful force and are an indispensable, powerful backing for Chinese prophets to rouse those sleeping. You are the backers and arms we can rely on. Without your hard work and support, we are weak and have nothing to rely on,” he said.
Teacher's grace is vast and mighty, and there is no way to repay it. The disciples can only practice more diligently.
Thanks to compassionate and great Master!
Thank you, Master!
