(Minghui.org) At a low point in my life in the spring of 1998, I decided to look for a temple and practice Buddhism. Every afternoon I went out on my bicycle and looked for one. One day, I met an old acquaintance in front of a church. He took me inside and introduced me to their activities. The place was crowded, disorderly and the atmosphere was oppressive. Sensing a bad vibe, I quickly left.

Another day I found myself near a crowded supermarket. Through an opening in the crowd I saw the character “Buddha” written in gold on red paper. Jumping from my bicycle I went straight to the word. As I got closer I noticed a banner with the words “Falun Dafa.”

I asked the person next to the banner what it meant. She said, “Falun Dafa is cultivation practice of the Buddhist school.”

“How does one practice? Can I practice?”

She asked where I was from and told me there was a group exercise site close to my home.

I could hardly contain my excitement—I found the way of Buddha cultivation! That was how I started to practice Falun Dafa.

Master Cleansed My Body

Beside the aches and pains throughout my body, I also suffered from several chronic diseases.

As soon as I learned the five sets of Falun Dafa exercises, Master began cleansing my body of karma: my throat swelled and I could not talk. A family member suggested I go to the hospital. I had suffered this type of infection many times since I was a child. A large puss-filled nodule would appear in my throat. When that happened, I was unable to eat for several days. I was given medication and sometimes the puss ball was drained. This was only temporary relief. I still got it sometimes as an adult.

This time, I told my family, “It is nothing, I am a cultivator now, so this is different. Master is cleansing my body.”

I felt fine while I was at the practice site, but I felt tired as soon as I got home. I could smell the odor of medication coming from my mouth. The swelling reduced every day and was gone in a week.

My father was surprised. “You did not go to hospital or take any medication. You’re fine after just doing some exercises? I can’t believe it! What book are you reading?” he asked. After he finished reading Zhuan Falun, he said, “This is a good book!” He also started practicing Falun Dafa.

Eliminating Sentimentality to Family

My daughter began dating a boy soon after graduating from college. It was not a favorable match for her in my opinion. The boy was not as well-educated as my daughter, and he came from a single-parent family.

I was against the match, but my daughter would not listen to me and insisted on staying with the boy.

I suddenly remembered that I am a cultivator. Master said,

“You are unable to interfere with the lives of others, and neither can you control others’ fates, including those of your wife, sons, daughters, parents, or brothers. Can you decide those things?” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)

Since our children are not practitioners, they are just ordinary people, and I should just let them be.

The two eventually got married. One afternoon, while I was sending forth righteous thoughts, my son-in-law called. He said they were having an argument. My daughter was standing on the windowsill, getting ready to jump. He asked me to hurry over.

I remember what Master said,

“...and anything not related to your improvement won’t dare to meddle with you or disturb you.” (Chapter I The Features of Falun Dafa, The Great Way of Spiritual Perfection)

I thought, “This is interference. I am a cultivator, and the interference comes from my own attachment. My attachment is love for my family. Master has the final say in everything.”

My daughter lived about 20 minutes from me by car. If something happened, it would be over by the time I got there. Only Master had the power to change the situation. I continued sending forth righteous thoughts and asking Master for his help.

Fifteen minutes later, my son-in-law called again, “Mom, you don’t need to come. She calmed down. We are heading out.”

If I were not a Falun Dafa practitioner, I would have done anything to stop her. At least I would have offered suggestions to my son-in-law on the phone. I would have been so worried as I only have one daughter and one son. If I did anything, perhaps I would have caused more harm than good.

Master Protects and Watches Over Me

Another time, it was past midnight and I was sending forth righteous thoughts. The phone rang. It was my son-in-law, “Mom, please come.”

“What is it?” I said.

“We are having an argument...your daughter is having a fit!”

I thought, “Isn’t this testing my xinxing? I haven’t yet let go of my sentimental feelings for my daughter.” I said to Master, “Master, I only follow your arrangement. I do not want anything else. I don’t want sentimentality for my children. It is not part of my true self.”

I continued sending forth righteous thoughts and asked Master to help me to eliminate my sentimentality.

A few minutes later, my son-in-law called again, “Mom, you don’t need to come. Everything is fine now.”

Master helped me again, and my daughter and son-in-law were back together.

I treated my daughter and her husband according to the standards of Dafa. I saw my son-in-law as my own son. At one point their argument escalated and they threatened to divorce. My daughter told my son-in-law to leave. I stopped him at the door. My daughter wanted to leave if he did not.

“Neither of you can leave,” I said. “You have a child. You are responsible for your child, and you are my daughter. Your husband is like my son.”

My son-in-law grew up without the warmth of a family. Neither of his parents cared for him. He did not even finish elementary school. When he heard my words, he embraced my daughter and me. We all shed tears. He said, “Mom, this is my home, my home forever.”

After that, my son-in-law changed, and he became more responsible for the family and treated me like his mother. Their business thrived and was considered one of the top in their field. It was not an easy feat to get to where they are now. I felt they prospered because I am a Dafa practitioner. Master said,

“Haven’t I said that with one person practicing, the whole family benefits?” (Teachings at the Conference in Australia)

My Granddaughter Grew Up Under Dafa

My granddaughter is now five years old. When she was still in the nursery at the hospital, she held her hands together in the heshi position. When she cried, no one was able to soothe her. I whispered in her ear, “Remember, ‘Falun Dafa is good!’” She stopped crying.

Another grandmother commented that my granddaughter was such an easy child as her grandson cried every ten minutes.

A happy and friendly child, my granddaughter has a smile on her face every day. She memorized Lunyu and more than 20 poems in Hong Yin when she was three years old. She is now reading lecture two in Zhuan Falun with me.

One day, she was laying in bed with a stomachache.

“What happened?” I asked. “Do you want some medicine?”

“I don’t want medicine, I will recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ and ask Master for help, and I will get better.”

She was fine when she woke up from her nap. Such a small child knows to have faith in Master and Dafa, and Master naturally watches over her.

There have also been some interesting incidents with my granddaughter. When she was three years old, her parents often went away on business trips, so I was her main caretaker. I used to think that taking care of her prevented me from having enough time to do the Dafa exercises, so I complained to my daughter-in-law. My daughter-in-law would care for the child when she was home so I could have some free time.

However, without my granddaughter with me, I still could not get up early in the morning to do the exercises. One morning at five o’clock, my granddaughter walked to my door and said very seriously, “You did not get up to do the exercises again? I asked you to go with me, but you didn’t.” She then turned around to go back to her mother’s room.

I knew Master used the child’s words to enlighten me. My granddaughter never got up before seven o’clock. I later asked her what she had said that morning, and she said she couldn’t remember.

Master must have been anxious for me because I was not diligent!

My granddaughter watches my cultivation closely. Whenever I encounter obstacles, such as getting up late in the morning or not holding my hands in the proper position to send righteous thoughts, she speaks to me like a little adult: “Are you being interfered with in your cultivation?” or “You are falling asleep again.”

This is an extraordinary child–she is serious is beyond her years. Her words pointed out where I needed improving. She also worried that when I achieve enlightenment, I would not bring her with me to my celestial world, as she wanted to go with me.

“Cultivate well and bring me with you when you fly up in the sky,” she said.

“No, you must cultivate yourself...only Master can bring you up there.”

“Then I want to learn, too.” Since then, she has read the Fa with me.

I am grateful for Master and Dafa. Only Dafa can save people–it has benefitted every practitioner and is the sole hope for humanity.
