(Minghui.org) By the time I turned 30 years old I had come down with various illnesses, such as heart problems, arthritis, and many other illnesses. My joints were already deformed, and I suffered from insomnia. My body was weakening by the day, and I was living on medications. I was underweight, and whenever I visited the doctors, they would be unable to find my pulse rate. They presumed that I would not live past the age of 40. 

Falun Dafa Has Given Me a Brand New Life

I am now 71 years old. A fortune teller predicted that I would encounter good fortune when I turned 48 years old. True enough, I encountered Falun Dafa. It was Master Li (Falun Dafa’s founder) who saved me and gave me a new life. 

It all started when I had a dream on October 26, 1998. I was sitting on a rooftop and it seemed very dangerous. I was afraid of moving and did not know what to do. I thought to myself: “If only someone would come and help me. As soon as this thought surfaced, a male appeared, and asked why I was sitting on the rooftop. He pulled me up, and then disappeared before I could take a good look at him. I was very happy when I woke up. Someone had saved my life.

At around 3 or 4 p.m. that afternoon, I met a man who introduced Falun Dafa to me. He told me to check out the group practice site, which I did immediately. Everyone was very friendly, which deeply touched me. 

I began to study the Fa and did the exercises with them that evening. I also went to our local plaza to clarify the truth the next day. Tears covered my faceas soon as they played the “Pudu” and “Jishi” music. I wasn’t quite sure what was happening to me, and couldn’t respond when others asked if I was okay. It was not until later that I understood that I was feeling really happy, fortunate, and grateful for having obtained Dafa.

It was the best thing out of all my misfortunes to have cultivated in Falun Dafa. My mind and body have been very healthy and I’ve stopped all my medications since I began to cultivate. Although I only have an elementary school education, I was still able to read Master Li’s lectures.

The Onset of the Persecution

Not long after I started cultivating, Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the nationwide persecution campaign against Falun Dafa practitioners. Why did the government stop people from practicing Falun Dafa? They even demanded that I sign a guarantee statement to stop practicing it. I was in tears when speaking to the public officers, “Where were you when I had to spend thousands of yuan to cure my illnesses?” My body has been free from all illnesses and discomforts after two months of practicing Falun Dafa. Did you know that? I do not understand why the Chinese government has forbidden us from practicing Dafa.”

My belief in Master and Dafa was unwavering despite the persecution. Master has always protected me by turning dangers into blessings, and has bestowed many miracles and blessings on my family and me. 

When sending off a friend at a train station one day in 2007, I was getting ready to give him a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and other Dafa truth-clarification informational materials. However upon noticing how tight the security checkpoint was when my friend boarded the train, I gave up the idea of giving him the Nine Commentaries

When exiting the train station, the guards at the entrance asked, “What is in your bag?” I told them that it was nothing of importance. I wasn’t even afraid when the guards wanted to see what was in the bag. When the guard saw a piece of toilet paper hanging out of my bag he let me go. A relative of mine was worried for me but I knew Master was protecting me from a dangerous situation. I did not remember having put a roll of toilet paper in my bag. Master is always making sure that Dafa practitioners are safe. 

Master Protected Me

When clarifying the truth and handing out truth-clarification DVDs with another practitioner in September 2011, someone reported us. The police officers took us to the police station. The police officers were unable to find my house that entire day. In the end, they were only able to find Master’s portrait in my rental home and released me. Master has protected me once again, as several practitioners who were constantly harassed, had stored many of Master’s books at my house. 

Recovered from Knee Injury

When distributing truth-clarification calendars during the Mid-Autumn Festival in 2020, I fell on my knees very hard. I felt excruciating pain when another practitioner helped me get up. I was silently reciting: “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and told myself that I was going to be fine. I walked a few steps before fainting and falling to the ground. My son took me to a hospital, but I told him that I refused to be hospitalized. Anyway, I could go home because it was a public holiday, and no one was working. After my son and daughter-in-law dropped me off at home I noticed that my knees were swollen, and I was unable to walk. 

My son took me to the hospital again the next day, and the doctors said that I had severely injured my knees. The x-ray results showed that my kneecaps were broken into many pieces and that I needed surgery. I was not afraid, and my heart was not moved. I knew that I had Master by my side, and insisted on going home. The doctors reminded me of the importance of getting my knees fixed or else I would have trouble walking in the future. I still persisted in going home. 

I believed in Master and Dafa by studying the Fa and doing the standing exercises every day. I walked to the bathroom by using my crutches. When I went back to the hospital after 10 days for another x-ray, the doctors who did not know that I had refused surgery said that I was recovering very well, and my son was reassured. 

There was another elderly practitioner of about 80 years old, whom I called my older sister taking care of me and she also prepared my meals. We studied Falun Dafa’s teachings together, sent forth righteous thoughts, cultivated every thought and notion, and improved ourselves in accordance with the Fa. 

Letting Go of Resentment

I needed to let go of the attachment to resentment of being unable to stand being corrected and to improve in my cultivation. I tried not to rely on my older sister if I was able to do things on my own. I did not need crutches after 40 days. My older sister left after two months when I became self-sufficient and I took care of my disabled husband myself. I was able to take strolls outdoors, clarify the truth, distribute truth-clarification brochures, and awaken the conscience of sentient beings with another practitioner within 100 days. 

It was the power of Dafa that helped me to recover my kneecaps, which were fractured into lots of pieces without surgery and being hospitalized. My daughter-in-law’s family also witnessed the power of Dafa. 

A neighbor of mine, who was in his 50s, also fractured his kneecaps into many pieces. He had to have surgery. The doctors repositioned his kneecaps and secured it with screws, but his legs were still swollen and he was still using crutches three months later. He spent over 30,000 yuan at the hospital, and the doctors advised him that the screws had to be removed in a year. 

Blessings that Master Bestowed on My Family

Not only did Master protect me, but he also protected my family. My granddaughter has recited the poems in Hong Yin since she was young. She often saw Master in her dreams. In her dreams, she had conversations with Master who said that he is happy and would take her home. 

My granddaughter woke up at around 7 a.m. one morning in October 2003. She said she had a dream. I disbelieved her, thinking that a two-year-old doesn’t usually have dreams. My granddaughter said, “Grandma, it is true. I believe in Master and Dafa too. I dreamed that Master took me to our home in the suburbs, and I saw my parents. My father had pain in his legs.” While describing it, she was mimicking a crippled person walking. I was quite surprised and called my son a couple of days later. True enough, my son did hurt his lower back and he didn’t tell me because he did not want me to be worried. 

When inspecting a well one day, the rope broke and he had fallen down 20 meters (about 65 feet) and landed on his back. My son didn’t think much about it that time and continued working. His company told him to have an x-ray taken at the local provincial hospital. He found out that his tailbone had shattered into many pieces.

He needed to be hospitalized and have surgery. His doctors were shocked upon learning that he sat on a train for nine hours just to get to the hospital. This was not possible for a normal person with a shattered tailbone. The surgery took about ten hours and it was a success. My son had already been discharged from the hospital when I heard about it. 

My son rode on a bike with his father on the back of it one day in 2006. When riding downhill, his father fell over and hit his head on the ground. Both my son and my daughter-in-law were quite scared. I reassured them and said that it was okay since we have Master and Dafa protecting us. We started to recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I pulled my husband up after a while and told him to recite those words as well. I played Master’s audio lectures when we got home. My husband slept for about 3 to 4 days. Nothing happened out of the ordinary. My husband is 85 years old this year and has been fine ever since. I know that it was the great and compassionate Master that saved my husband’s life. 

My daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. She cried and did not dare to tell me. A classmate from the university told me that my daughter was sick and might have to undergo surgery. Hence, I bought a train ticket and visited my daughter the next day. I told her not to be scared because Master once said, “With one person practicing, the whole family benefits”. As long as she supported me in cultivation, she’ll receive blessings as well. My daughter believed in Dafa and right before the surgery she was silently reciting “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” From being hospitalized to getting discharged, everything went smoothly. The surgeon also paid attention to my daughter’s recovery. Other patients in the hospital thought we had given him extra money, but in fact I knew that it was Master who had arranged it. My daughter is now living overseas and is healthy. She also reads Master’s lectures during her free time. 

Dafa is extraordinary and Master is compassionate. Dafa disciples have benefited in mind and body and have spread the truth of this precious Dafa and brought blessings to those closest to us. With the ongoing pandemic, I sincerely hope for sentient beings to understand the truth of Falun Dafa by reading truth-clarification materials.
