(Minghui.org) Having good health is what people always dream of, but despite advanced medical science and new technologies, many diseases remain incurable, leaving us in pain and sometimes despair.

But there is one exception. Over the past 29 years, a large number of people have seen their stubborn or terminal diseases cured through the practice of Falun Dafa, a mind-body practice also known as Falun Gong. Not only that, by reading Zhuan Falun and living by Falun Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, these practitioners have also improved their moral values.

Miracles at Lecture Sessions

Invited by the China Qigong Science Research Society branches at different places, Mr. Li Hongzhi, founder of Falun Dafa, had 54 lecture sessions between May 13, 1992, and December 31, 1994. In 23 cities across China, the lectures were attended by over 60,000 people. Witnesses recalled many miracles that occurred during those lectures.

Mr. Li Fengming, a 67-year-old senior engineer, had been suffering the aftereffects of a stroke for four years. During the seventh lecture session in Changchun, Jilin Province, he was able to walk by himself and no longer needed crutches. The change was so sudden that he was moved to tears with laughter. Many people here saw the miracle. His wife wrote a letter to Mr. Li Hongzhi that evening, thanking him on behalf of her entire family.

Another stroke sufferer, in his 50s and dressed in a railway uniform, also fully recovered at the venue. In tears, he went up to Mr. Li Hongzhi and bowed to him. Picking up the crutches, he went outside the auditorium and broke them on the pavement. “Finally I don’t need them anymore,” he said.

The man in a railway uniform stood up and walked on his own.

There were countless such examples from the lecture sessions. Many people saw these examples and were impressed that Falun Dafa was so extraordinary. That motivated them to become practitioners, both to improve their health and to become better people as Mr. Li Hongzhi explained in the lectures.

Professionals: Regained Health and Renewed Hope

Mr. Guan Guimin, one of the best-known operatic tenors in China, was named a national, first-class performer by China’s Ministry of Culture. He has a beautiful voice and has sung in over 50 movies.

But at the peak of his career in 1983, Mr. Guan was diagnosed with hepatitis B and early cirrhosis. He visited various doctors and sought all kinds of medical treatments, including different types of qigong. But none of them helped with anything. “Life was miserable,” Mr. Guan recalled. “Although only 39, I easily got tired. When I went to a zoo with my wife and son, I had to take a break due to fatigue and lie on the grass every now and then to recover.” He said it was difficult for people without such an illness to imagine how painful it was.

In the spring of 1996 Mr. Guan began to practice Falun Dafa. Within two years, all of his ailments were cured. “Good health was a dream for me. Now I have come to understand what being illness-free really means,” he explained.

Former Ministry of Economy and Trade Officer

Ms. Zhang Yijie was a Chinese diplomat in Romania in the 1980s. Later she returned to China and worked as a Director of the General Office in the Ministry of Economy and Trade.

Having been through numerous political campaigns and brainwashing by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), Ms. Zhang said she would not easily accept new ideas. Nonetheless, she kept looking for the purpose of life.

After becoming a Falun Dafa practitioner at the end of 1994, her questions about life were answered. Her illnesses were gone and her productivity at work increased. With a calm and compassionate mind, she found life much easier. “I did not know one could live with such relaxation and comfort,” she added.

A Physician Who Could Not Heal Himself

Dr. Wang Zhiyuan was a physician for 25 years including at Harvard Medical School. Although he cured many patients, he could not help himself. It was Falun Dafa that did.

Back when he was in China, Dr. Wang was diagnosed with progressive spinal muscular atrophy. Doctors said the muscles would get weak and shrink, and he would have trouble controlling his head. In the end, he would have difficulty swallowing and breathing, which would lead to death.

Knowing this was an incurable condition, Dr. Wang nonetheless refused to give up. He tried Chinese and Western medicine, but nothing helped. Within three months, his weight fell from 75 kilos (165 pounds) to 58 kilos (130 pounds). Due to fatigue, he would get dizzy climbing just one flight of stairs, and he needed a ride whenever he went out. Due to severe memory loss, he could not even remember his home address. In the end, he left China and went to the U.S., hoping to find a solution. Before he left, he and a friend promised to tell each other if either one found any extraordinary, self-improvement methods that might cure his disease.

Even at Harvard, one of the best medical facilities in the world, Dr. Wang could not find a cure. When he was on the verge of despair, however, a friend in China recommended Falun Dafa to him and he went to a nine-day session to watch Mr. Li’s audio lectures at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

After attending the lecture on the first day, Dr. Wang felt energetic and relaxed. On the fourth and fifth days, his stomach problem and all discomfort went away. “Every day, I was surrounded by a warm current and was very comfortable,” he explained.

Over the next three months, all his test results returned to normal, including his weight, memory, and hemoglobin. He also felt he had more energy than ever. The Boston Globe interviewed him. “Falun Dafa gives us a clear mind and better health,” said Dr. Wang. “I strongly recommend it.”

Letting Go of Bad Habits

In a health survey compiled by practitioners in Wuhan, Hubei Province, 99.5% of practitioners quit bad habits including smoking, alcohol, or gambling. That was also the case in practitioners outside of China.

Steve is a railroad engineer who works in Boston. After being exposed to drugs at the age of 15, he became addicted, and countless attempts to quit failed. To make things worse, his youngest son also became addicted to drugs at a young age. Steve’s wife, Roberta, who worked at a drug rehabilitation center, was frustrated and in despair. Just as the family was about to fall apart, however, something happened.

One day, Steve told his wife he had read an article online about a meditation system called Falun Dafa, which was suppressed in China. The couple talked about it for a long time and Steve began to practice it. Surprisingly, he soon quit drugs. “The principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are very powerful,” he explained.

Not long after that, his youngest son also began to practice. Not only did the young man stop taking drugs, but his manners also improved significantly. “He no longer uses bad words, smokes, or steals,” Steve said.

“My husband’s drug addiction really upset me. And as a mother, seeing my son living like that broke my heart,” said Roberta. “I am so grateful that Mr. Li brought us Falun Dafa.”

Steve said he has a wish: “I hope more people could get to know Falun Dafa and benefit from it. Please do not believe what the Chinese Communist Party’s defamatory propaganda says. Look into it with your own eyes, and you will find the truth.”

Helping Society

Beijing Daily published a letter from readers on February 16, 1998, praising a Beijing man who donated 80,000 yuan to Lanzhou Chemical and Engineering Research Institute for research purposes without leaving his name. He also donated 100,000 yuan to the Chinese Research Institute of Petroleum Exploration and Development in Langfang City, Hebei Province. “After I began to practice Falun Dafa, I learned one should be a good citizen and benefit society,” he wrote.

During a major flood in Wuhan, Hubei Province in 1998, a group of volunteers worked very hard on rescue efforts even without being organized. When a news reporter asked who they were, one of them replied, “We are Falun Dafa practitioners.” On the list of donors who contributed monetarily to help victims of the disasters, many people identified themselves as Falun Dafa practitioners.

Mr. Gao Wenzhi, already in his 70s, was a teacher in Huludao City, Liaoning Province. He used to suffer from hepatitis, rhinitis, otitis media, lower back pain, and two kinds of cancers. Doctors said there was no hope for him and he would only live for another few months.

After he started to practice Falun Dafa in 1995, he followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a good citizen. Without any medical treatment, all his health problems disappeared within six months. His health was even better than when he was younger.

Because of his belief, however, Mr. Gao was sent to prison. When he was released, he was forced to stay away from home and lived in a friend’s deserted factory. Seeing a worn-out road filled with potholes, he purchased tar and other materials with his own money. After transporting the materials on a tricycle, he repaired the road himself, without asking anyone else for money.

Because there was another 300-meter road near the railroad that was also in poor condition, Mr. Gao asked around for leftover materials from construction workers. After collecting enough materials, he began to repair the road in the heat of summer. Moved by his kindness, local villagers gave him vegetables and fruit to thank him.

Mr. Gao voluntarily repaired four roads totaling over 3,000 meters in eight years. He also spent more than 30,000 yuan of his own money to do it. But that good person was arrested again at home for his belief on the evening of June 23, 2017. Mr. Gao was later sentenced to four and a half years in prison.

From the above examples, one can see that Falun Dafa not only greatly improves its practitioners’ physical health, but also elevates their moral values and benefits society. All the teachings and exercise instructions are free to download at falundafa.org. We hope that more people will find health and happiness by practicing Falun Dafa, just like these practitioners did.
