(Minghui.org) I was born in the mountains of Sichuan Province and am now 83 years old. In the late Qing Dynasty, my ancestors built several roads and bridges for people to use and built an elementary school that children could attend for free. There were several temples near my home, and I liked to go there to see the divine being sculptures, such as Thousand-Mile Eye and Wind-Accompanying Ear.

Falun Dafa Is Supernormal

I am retired from a university. Last summer, I went to pick up goods from the school’s retirement department and spoke to an officer there I knew in the past. When the persecution first started, she had come to my home to ask me not to practice Falun Dafa, and I clarified the truth to her.

She said, “You are in your 80s, but your hair is still black, and your skin is so nice. You will live to be over 100!” When I go shopping in the market people will say, “You are in your 80s and you still do the shopping?”

In fact, I suffered from all sorts of health issues before practicing Falun Dafa. I had a duodenal ulcer and chronic atrophic gastritis and had to wear glasses to correct my astigmatism. The doctor told me that the atrophic gastritis could turn into cancer so I was often worried. I relied on daily medications to relieve the symptoms.

My neighbor, who was the director of a hospital, said that he would operate on me if needed. But I thought that my parents gave me my body, and I should treasure every part of it. Thus, I didn’t want any surgery unless absolutely necessary. I also had corns on my feet, and it always hurt to walk. I often went to the street vendor who helped me shave them down.

I saw the book Falun Gong in a bookstore in 1994. It detailed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I began to follow the Fa principles that Master talked about.

I could never have imagined that I would ever recover from my digestive issues—yet I did. My eyesight became as good as when I was young; I no longer needed reading glasses, even for small text, and recovered from my astigmatism.

When Master cleansed my body, I had bloody diarrhea. Then my abdominal problems were gone, and I had no problem eating cold food, such as ice cream.

When I was doing the sitting meditation, I saw my corns shooting out of my feet like needles. I no longer had problems with corns, and I was pain-free. I became much more energetic.

My wife is a doctor. She saw how Dafa cured me, so she also started to conduct herself based on Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and no longer accepted any money or gifts.

My oldest son was once addicted to drugs and couldn’t give it up even after spending hundreds of thousands of yuan on different treatments. At that time I had already obtained a copy of Zhuan Falun. I told him, “Your life is yours. If you want it, you should hand copy Zhuan Falun.” He did. And as he copied it, he was able to get rid of the drug addiction.

His son, who is my oldest grandson, couldn’t speak for a long time. They took him to the Chongqing Hospital, but there was no improvement. I thought about how powerful Dafa was, so I had him listen to the Dafa music Pu Du.

Then, I recited “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Gradually he learned how to recite it. After that, I read On Dafa to him and he memorized it. Soon he was able to speak. Falun Dafa is truly powerful.

Once I realized that my family benefited from Dafa, I wanted people around me to benefit, too. So I held classes at work during which I had them listen to Master’s lecture videos and watch the exercise instruction videos. I also volunteered to teach people the exercises. A lot of people came and learned. During the winter and summer breaks, I went to other places, including my hometown, to spread the Fa so that more people could learn.

People Suggest: “You Guys Are Our Hope”

The Chinese Communist regime began to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. In 2000, I went to Zhongnanhai with fellow practitioners from Chongqing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa). I was arrested and the police shocked me with electric batons for over 40 minutes. The entire room was filled with the smell of burning flesh.

I quietly recited Master’s poem,

“In life, nothing sought,In death, regretting naught;Washing away all wrong thought,Buddhahood, with lessadversity, is wrought.”(“Nothing Kept,” Hong Yin)

After I left the room I did not feel any pain, and there were no injuries on my body.

My university sent people to take us back to Chongqing. On the train, these people were playing cards and were very loud. The floor was very dirty from the food they ate, so they got a warning from the train attendant. The car where we practitioners were sitting was quiet and neat, and the train attendants praised us. When we were getting off the train, a young attendant raised his thumb and said, “You guys are our hope.”

In Chongqing, I was illegally arrested and taken to the Baihelin Detention Center in the Shapingba District. Two young guards asked me why I went to Beijing. I said, “Falun Dafa’s Master Li taught us to cultivate Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. We follow it to be good and to become better. I used to have a duodenal ulcer and chronic atrophic gastritis. I went the hospital for over 20 years for regular treatments, but I did not recover. However, soon after I started to practice Falun Dafa, I did!” One guard said, “So your Master must be a great divine being, and you are a little divine being!”

Because I would not give up Dafa cultivation, I was taken to the Xishanping Forced Labor Camp in Chongqing.

A Young Student Memorizes Dafa

In the forced labor camp was a college student who was there for taking drugs. His bed was next to mine, and he knew that I was a Dafa practitioner. One day he said to me, “Can you recite a Falun Dafa teaching for me?” I recited “On Dafa” for him from memory.

He said that he wanted to memorize it, so I recited it sentence by sentence until he’d memorized it all. He then said, “Dafa has changed me into a different person.”

Another day, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) secretary from my university’s retirement office came to visit me. When the guard brought him in, the secretary said to the guard, “Why are you detaining a good person from my school?” The guard couldn’t respond. When I was still working, everyone on the staff fought hard for professional titles, except me.

The secretary asked me, “Do you want to follow the CCP or Falun Dafa?” I said without hesitation, “Falun Dafa.”

The Great Power of Falun Dafa

Master told us to clarify the facts and save people. This is the mission and responsibility of Dafa disciples. I was fearful, so I often recited Master’s Fa:

“If you have fear, they will grab youOnce your thought is righteous, evil will collapsePeople practicing cultivation, filled with FaSending righteous thoughts, exploding rotten ghostsGods are in the world, validating Fa”(“What’s There to Fear,” Hong Yin II)

I started to clarify the truth to my friends and relatives. After I gained some experience, I began to clarify the facts to people I met. Now, I’m able to clarify the truth without hesitation. I make sure to study the Fa regularly to maintain a steady and righteous mind. I also find that the results are better when I am calm and compassionate.

I have a distant relative who lives in Luhe County in Guangdong Province. Once he came to visit and said to me, “I’m in my 70s and my health is not good. My family has already bought a coffin, made a shroud, and chosen a cemetery for me. I won’t live much longer.”

I first had him listen to the Dafa music Pu Du, and he really liked it. I then clarified the truth about Dafa to him, and he listened carefully. Then he quit the CCP without hesitation. I asked him to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and he agreed. The next time he came to see me, he was healthy.

Another relative of mine lives in a rural area in Guangdong Province. One day he caught up with me and said, “The amulet you gave me was so effective!” I asked, “How so?” He said, “I had an accident on my motorcycle. Both the motorcycle and I fell off a cliff. The bike was damaged, but I was not hurt.”

A month prior to that, I’d seen him and clarified the truth to him. He said, “I have never joined any organization, and I don’t believe in anything.” I said, “You ride a motorcycle every day and that is dangerous. Let me give you an amulet to keep you safe!” He still said that he didn’t believe in it. I said, “We are relatives and I wouldn’t do anything to harm you. You just put the amulet in your wallet and take it with you It won’t keep you from doing anything.” So he accepted it. He couldn’t imagine at the time that it would save his life. From then on, his family of four have believed “Falun Dafa is good.”

My wife is a radiotherapist and Ms. Zheng is her coworker. A couple of years ago, I saw her and noticed her complexion looked gray; she did not look good at all. She told me that she had come down with lung cancer. I asked her to quit the CCP and its youth organizations and to recite “Falun Dafa is good.” She accepted my advice.

When I saw her several months later, her skin looked normal. Several years later, when I saw her again, her face glowed. Falun Dafa is so powerful!

Another relative mine is a high-level military leader in the air force. I heard that he was very ill and in the ICU, so I went to see him. He could not speak or move. I said to him, “If you want to get well, you need to listen to me. I will ask you something, and you can blink to show that you agree. Can I help you quit the CCP?” He blinked. I said, “Are you willing to recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good?’” He blinked again. He was released from the hospital the next day, and to this day he is very healthy.

The human world is a dimension filled with delusions. Humans cannot see the truth and will often do wrong things, so they will suffer from illness and death. Falun Dafa is saving people in this world of delusion.
