A 100-year-old Falun Dafa Practitioner

Dec. 3, 2021 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in China

(Minghui.org) I know a 100-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner. She had turned 100 by the time we sent Chinese New Year greetings to Master (the founder of Falun Dafa) in early 2021. She was happy to see me again when I visited her recently. She shared some of her stories with me.

She told me that her daughter called to check on her every three or four days. She told her daughter, “Don’t worry. I’m fine. I’m under Master’s care.” She told me that Master was truly taking care of her. She was sleeping one early morning, when she heard someone saying, “Get up. It is time for meditation.” At other times she heard a beeping sound and someone saying, “Get up. Meditate for an hour.” She went to bed at 7:30 p.m., and heard a voice around midnight saying, “Get up. Time to send forth righteous thoughts.”

She said, “Before I go downstairs, I always beg Master for his protection, so that I won’t fall. I did fall one day, and I cried, ‘Master, please help me up!’ Indeed, I got up easily.

“Master helps me with everything!” she added, “One day, I burned incense sticks in front of Master’s portrait, and found that one of the sticks had become shorter than the others. I realized that I had watched too much television. I stopped watching TV, and the incense sticks burned normally. It happened again another day, because I had said wrong things, so I hurried to admit it to Master, and the incense sticks became the same length again toward the end.”

The practitioner told me, “My children were worried that I might bump into something. My oldest daughter-in-law suggested I move in with her. I declined, because I study the Fa and do the exercises every day. My home is the best place for doing this. I told my children not to worry, because I’m under Master’s care. 

“My younger son never forces anything on me. One time, I couldn’t eat anything and he wanted to take me to a hospital. I said, ‘No, I won’t be able to come back if I go.’ He stopped trying to force me. When my wrist was broken last year, my younger son also listened to me, and let me recover at home. He also bought me a new audio player for playing the exercise music when my old one broke.”

Because of hearing loss, she had to study the Fa by watching a DVD at a high volume. Once, her disk broke when it was playing the third lecture. I promised to help her with it. 

She also told me many amazing things that Master has helped her with. “A screw on the bottom of my thermal bottle broke one day. The flask wouldn’t stay in place. My younger son tried to tape it, but it didn’t work. I begged Master to help me, and it worked! 

“One time, our phone system was under repair. I couldn’t call anyone, and no one could call in. We were anxious. I begged Master to help me. My son was able to call in after that! He couldn’t believe that it was due to Master’s help. I told him to try again. He did, and he couldn’t call in. Of course it wouldn’t work when the system was under repair. He finally admitted it. 

“Another day, my gas stove quit working. My daughter-in-law had to go to her house to cook. I begged Master to help. The stove started working the next day. See, Master is taking care of my everyday life!”

She enjoys distributing truth-clarification brochures, and she hands them out in person. My fellow practitioners and I didn’t give her many copies, considering her age and the pandemic. We gave her three copies of the new Falun Dafa calendars and a copy of each kind of brochure. She said she would share the two spare calendars with her two sons. When she was a few years younger, she used to distribute all her calendars on the street. My fellow practitioners and I understand her pure intention to spread the message of Falun Dafa to more people.

I know that she has strong faith in Dafa and Master. When we wished Master a Happy New Year in front of Master’s portrait on our knees, I also begged Master to help her restore the lecture video DVD. After we got up from the floor, we turned on the DVD player, and it worked! We thanked Master happily!
