83-Year-Old Grows New Teeth
(Minghui.org) My mother is 83 years old. She told me the other day that she has grown new teeth, not just one but two. She asked me to touch them to make sure. I did and found indeed there were two new teeth.
She then showed me her forehead, telling me she had also grown new hair. I looked closely and saw black strands of hair mixed in with her white ones. I said, “It is truly remarkable. Thanks to our benevolent Master Li.”
Mother pressed her palms together in a gesture of respect and said the same.
I got a copy of Zhuan Falun in 1997 from the Party secretary where I worked. I read through it in one sitting. I felt the Falun turning in my abdomen and also at the center of my palm.
Soon after, my mother received a copy of Zhuan Falun Fajie from a practitioner promoting Dafa in our community. She read part of it.
Although I read Zhuan Falun and did feel some things, I didn't start to cultivate at that time. The Chinese Communist Party began to persecute Falun Dafa in 1999, so I hid the book but took it out to read occasionally.
Although I did not truly cultivate, I always behaved according to the principles of Dafa. I formally began to cultivate in Dafa in 2012 and worked hard to catch up with Master’s Fa-rectification with the help of a few local practitioners.
I talked with Mom about the facts of Dafa, and she agreed to quit the Young Pioneers. But she was afraid to hear me talk about Dafa because she knew how evil the Party is and that it persecutes Dafa practitioners.
Mom had suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for more than 40 years. She also suffered from diabetes and high blood pressure and had had a stroke. She had to get injections to soften the blood vessels every time the season changed. Two years ago, my younger brother called and said that Mom was sick and had to go to the hospital.
She was standing at the door looking straight ahead when I arrived. She was afraid to move because she couldn’t see.
I carried her on my back to the car and drove to the hospital. On the way, I told her, “Now only Master can take care of you. Just recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’”
My mother closed her eyes and kept saying “Falun Dafa is good.” At the hospital they found everything was basically normal other than her blood sugar was a bit high.
After that, my mother believed absolutely that Dafa was good and often recited “Falun Dafa is good.” She praised me whenever she met anyone, saying it was remarkable how easily I could carry her and run even though I was almost 50 years old.
After that, Mom practiced the first and third exercises for six months. Many of her ailments, especially the rheumatoid arthritis that she’d had for more than 40 years, disappeared. She could wear shorts in the summer, and her blood sugar and blood pressure were normal. Mom also began to listen to the recording of Master’s lecture in Guangzhou.
My mother is kind by nature. She used to believe in Buddhism and helped anyone in difficulty who came to her. She gave offerings to a few Buddha statues and burned incense often. One day when she was about to worship, a spark from the incense flew up from the incense burner and burned her neck.
She was very angry: “What is this? Is it wrong to burn incense?” She decided to remove all the Buddha statues.
After listening to the Fa for about two months, Mom suddenly vomited and my older brother asked her to go see a doctor. She responded, “I have learned Falun Dafa. How can I get sick?”
My nephew wanted to take her to the hospital, but she adamantly refused. At that time, watching my 80-year-old mother lying in bed in pain, I had no idea how strong her belief in Dafa was. I still firmly believed Master would take care of her. My older brother called the doctor to the house. The doctor put Mother on an IV.
The doctor said Mom had a number of problems that needed to be treated quickly. My brother was worried, telling us Mom should not eat this and that.
Mom didn’t listen and just followed what Master taught. She listened to Master’s teachings every day and recited “Falun Dafa is good” all the time. With no medicine or injections, she was soon back to normal. I asked my older brother how he viewed the matter afterward.
He didn't say anything but nodded his head. I believe he recognized the wonder of Dafa.
One night, Mom was asleep when she heard a voice saying, “Get up and take medicine!” She opened her eyes and saw no one there, so she went back to sleep.
The voice said again, “Get up quickly and take medicine for heart disease.” Mom said, “What medicine? I’m not sick. Why take medicine!” Then she fell asleep again.
She told me about it the next day. I said, “Mom, it’s a bad entity in another dimension. You are in your 80s and your body is still so good. We can’t listen to it. Many people threw away all their medications after listening to Master’s lectures.”
My younger brother feared Mom might get confused by the voice and take the wrong medicine, so he threw them all away. After that, Mom’s health got better and better. She ate all kinds of vegetables and fruit, with no concern for the amount or the sugar content. One day Mom fell in the yard and sat on her foot, unable to get up.
The only other person at home was my aunt, but she was too old to pull Mom up. Mom recited in her heart, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and asked Master for help.
Then she saw two pillars in front of her, just the right height for her to reach. So she held the pillars and pulled herself up. In reality, there were no pillars at all.
A few days ago, Mom felt a bit uncomfortable. She lay in bed and didn’t want to eat, so she listened to Master’s teachings. Suddenly she saw a dark shadow entering the house. She knew it was a bad thing, so she shouted, “Get out! Get out! Get a whip to drive it out!” The dark shadow immediately disappeared.
Mom continued to listen to Master’s Fa teachings and recited “Falun Dafa is good.” A few days later, she returned to normal.
Master said: “When one person obtains the Fa, the whole family will benefit.” (“Teaching the Fa and Answering Questions in Jinan,” Falun Dafa Fajie)
Since I started to cultivate Dafa, there have been so many instances of my relatives benefiting. More than a dozen people in my family have now heard Master’s lectures.
Some of them have formally started to cultivate and others are considering it. I want to represent those family members who obtained the Fa in thanking Master.
I will cultivate diligently and do the three things well. I will seize every opportunity to clarify the truth so that more sentient beings can obtain the Fa and be saved!
