Quitting Gambling & Smoking, Recovering from Hepatitis B

Li Jianrong started to practice Falun Dafa in 1998. He has been bathed in the light of Dafa over the past 23 years. “I am extremely lucky,” he said.

He shared the magical experience of how he obtained the Fa, “My wife used to be in poor health. She suffered from allergic rhinitis, breast hyperplasia, cervical fibroids, and low blood pressure. She went through various treatments and didn’t get much better. But after she started practicing Falun Dafa, her health gradually improved. I opposed her practicing and thought it was superstitious. I threatened that I would divorce her if she continued practicing. But I read the Falun Dafa book Essentials for Further Advancement behind her back. The article entitled ‘Firmament’ impressed me.”

“The vastness of the universe and the enormity of the cosmic bodies can never be understood by humans through exploration; the minuteness of matter can never be detected by humans. The human body is so mysterious that it is beyond human knowledge, which can merely scratch the surface. Life is so abundant and complex that it will forever remain an eternal enigma to mankind.” (“Firmament,” Essentials for Further Advancement)

He recalled, “At that time a news report said that Taiwan launched a satellite into orbit. This reminded me of the article ‘Firmament’ which mentioned the universe. Are there orbits in the greater universe? Why was the satellite able to stay in orbit? My mind was blown away and suddenly I understood something: My mind seemed connected to the orbit of the universe and communicated with it. I was suddenly enlightened.”

“I asked my wife to bring all the Dafa books back home,” he said. “I didn’t let her bring Dafa books home before because I would destroy them. So she put them in her office. Now I treat them like treasures. I spent three nights and finished reading Zhuan Falun. In the morning on the third day, Master purified my body. I vomited heaps of blood. I previously suffered from Hepatitis B. I knew that Master was purifying my body. I was soon illness-free. I’ve never stopped reading the books since then. I picked up the practice this way. I learned the truth of life from the practice.”

Li Jianrong practices the Falun Dafa sitting meditation.

Jianrong understood the meaning of life after reading Zhuan Falun and knows the principle of loss and gain. He returned all the tools and other things he took from his company. He stopped gambling, playing mahjong, and smoking. He used to be addicted to gambling and lost all his savings. He thinks of other people first now. He has undergone fundamental changes both mentally and physically.

He said, “Our electric meter didn’t work for several years. I went to pay the fees at the electric bureau after I started practicing Falun Dafa. After talking with them, I back paid several thousand yuan for the electricity I used for the past few years.”

In order to let people know the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution in China, Jianrong has learned how to use a computer and printer to make pamphlets, copy DVDs, and make other truth-clarification materials for local practitioners. He and his wife were once arrested for practicing Falun Dafa.

Now in Australia, he said with gratitude, “Thank you, Master, for your guidance and salvation. I wish Master a happy birthday!”

No Longer a “Little Hot Chili”

Ms. Zhang Huiyan was brought up by her grandparents and was spoiled by them. She was harsh, cursing at and fighting with her peers when she was a child. Her cousin called her “little hot chili.” However, she was in poor health.

“I would be the first one to catch a cold if it was cool outside,” she explained. “I had a bad temper. When I got angry, my heart and arms became painful. I also had stomach problems. I could not eat cold food even in the summer. When I got anxious, the skin on my head would become sore. If I touched it, it was even more painful, extremely painful. I also suffered from sinusitis, rheumatism, pharyngitis, and periodontitis.”

Huiyan started to practice Falun Dafa in the summer of 1994, and all of her illnesses disappeared within a short time. She came to know what living illness-free was like. “I am very grateful to Master. I am so lucky! I live happily every day. I cultivate myself according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. My inner heart has gone through tremendous changes. When I am in a conflict with other people, I don’t fight with them. My classmates said that I have changed, really changed.”

Huiyan’s parents and sister took note of her changes and as a result, started to practice. Her mother had many illnesses, including heart disease, kidney disease, and rheumatism. She recovered from her illnesses soon after taking up the practice and no longer has medical bills. She quit a 30-year smoking habit as well. Her hot temper was eased and her family became peaceful. Her father quit smoking after he started to practice. He recovered from a heart problem, high blood pressure, heart disease, and bone tuberculosis. Her sister started to practice Falun Dafa and the postpartum bleeding caused by the birth of her child was also healed.

Huiyan is grateful for Master’s mercy, “I am very lucky that I practice Falun Dafa. Master has given me a healthy life, purified my heart, and let me know the meaning of life. It is the 29th anniversary of Falun Dafa being introduced to the world this year and also Master’s 70th birthday. My husband and I wish Master a happy birthday! We treasure this rare opportunity very much and thank Master for his boundless compassion.”
