New Practitioner: Being Grateful for Master’s Protection and Salvation
(Minghui.org) I grew up very lonely with no one to depend on, and suffered many hardships. I felt lost and did not know why life had to be that way. I was very fortunate to obtain Falun Dafa in 2016 and gradually came to understand the true meaning and value of life. During my four years of cultivation, I often experienced Master’s empowerment and encouragement through my Fa study, exercise practice, and even while I slept.
Once when I was asleep, I felt a warm current coming down from the top of my head, and pass over my body. I used to suffer from a frozen shoulder. I was in a lot of pain during winter and it was very hard to fall asleep. My frozen shoulder disappeared when I started cultivating. Many miracles happened to me after I took up cultivation. I would like to share two examples.
Master Saved a Young Boy and Me
I was riding very fast on an electric scooter one summer when a young boy suddenly came out of nowhere on his bicycle. I told myself, “Everything will be fine.” But as soon as that thought arose, we collided and that young boy and his bicycle went flying up in the air. Onlookers were startled and I hurried off my scooter to see if he was hurt.
The boy stood up as soon and said that he was fine. I double-checked to see if he was indeed alright. He only had on short sleeves and pants--how could he not have gotten scraped up? When I looked at the bicycle, it was completely destroyed. Thinking back, it was truly Master protecting the boy and me. A normal person would have gotten scraped from simply falling on the ground, let alone falling off a bicycle.
Master Saved My Father-In-Law
My family was against me cultivating in the very beginning, and my father-in-law said something very disrespectful about Dafa. I did not get angry and clarified the truth to him patiently. He silently listened to me, but whenever I told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” he refused.
My father-in-law hurt himself one time from falling, and had to stay in bed. When I heard from our neighbors that he was in very bad condition, I rushed home to see him. He looked very pale and had no strength at all, but was still clearheaded. I said, “Dad, let’s take a stroll around the house. I will help you.” He said, “No, I dare not move at all. I will be in a lot of pain if I move.” I helped him up to a sitting position and asked, “Where does it hurt?”
He said that he felt pain inside of his ribcage all the way up to the back of his head. He said that he saw many villagers who had passed away as soon as he fell asleep.
I told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” immediately. He still refused and said that he didn’t believe that would help him. I patiently told him about my past experiences when I saw scary images in my dreams before I started cultivating, and how they ceased after I started cultivation. Dafa is truly a miracle. I asked him, “As your daughter-in-law, do you think I will harm you in any way? All you have to do is recite the nine special words. You don't need to get shots, take medication, be in pain, nor spend any money. Where can you find something as good as this? Why don’t you try? I will recite it with you.”
My father-in-law agreed to recite the nine special words, and before leaving I wrote them down for him. My husband and I returned a week later to take him to the hospital, but as soon as we arrived, we saw him walking on the street with a set of rosy cheeks! I asked, “Dad, how are you feeling?” He said, “I am fine, I am completely fine!”
I gave my father-in-law a banner with the words “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” after dinner. The words were big enough for him to see and I taught him how to read it several times.
My father-in-law is a very kind and righteous person. However, having lived through many of the Chinese Communist Party’s campaigns, he became scared and afraid. He knows very well what the communist regime is capable of, and deep down inside he knows that Dafa is good. After what he’s been through with his physical body, he finally realized that Falun Dafa is the universe’s and the Buddha’s Fa.
