(Minghui.org) I once suffered from many illnesses, such as cranial neuralgia, heart disease, and lumbar disc herniation. Sometimes I would suddenly become immobile when I was working. My husband took me to the municipal hospital for surgery as it was said that the surgery could cure me. However, the doctor said, “You are only 36 years old. So young and you want to undergo surgery? There is also no guarantee that the surgery will cure you. Furthermore, if the surgery fails you may become paralyzed.” After hearing this, I decided not to undergo surgery and returned home.
Not only was I not able to do any work, a few years later, I even developed allergic dermatitis. Through the allergy tests, it was discovered that there were 24 types of food that I could not eat including meat, fish, seafood, eggs and different kinds of fruits. Over time, I no longer had any energy. I felt that I would be better off dead.
A former classmate came to visit me in 2009. She was shocked when she saw me, and said, “Why is your face like that? I don’t even recognize you.” I told her that I had been to a few hospitals, but the doctors all said that my condition was incurable. In the end, the municipal hospital’s doctor prescribed more than 5,000 yuan worth of medicine for me and advised me to go home and rest. I ended up returning home in disappointment.
Stepping into Cultivation Practice
My former classmate saw that I was so sad, she comforted me not to cry and said, “Try to think of the bright side. What I offer you is Zhuan Falun, the main book of the cultivation practice Falun Dafa. Who knows? You may have the destiny to obtain the Fa and Master Li can help you resolve this tribulation.” Before that, she had also introduced her cultivation to me as she had also been plagued with illnesses before taking up the practice. This time, I agreed!
The next day, she came again after work and brought Zhuan Falun. I picked up the book and at first glance felt very good. My body felt very comfortable and when I saw Master’s photo, it seemed that Master was smiling at me. This gave me a benevolent, kind, and respectful feeling. I felt as though I had seen Master somewhere. When I studied the book, I was able to do the full lotus meditation position immediately, so I started doing that and prolonged the duration gradually from 5 minutes to 10 minutes then 15 minutes. I was gradually able to sit in the full lotus position from half an hour to an hour, and could read one lecture of Zhuan Falun.
Studying the Fa
Initially when I first started studying the Fa, Master had already started to cleanse my body, even before I finished studying one lecture. My body started to change, and my complexion was no longer as red as it used to be.
When I was reading the Fa I had an amazing experience. I felt that the person in the photo was talking to me. I listened to every sentence he spoke. At that time, I was able to understand what he meant. My mind could not recall anything else. I just hastened to read one sentence after another to find out what Zhuan Falun was talking about. For the whole week, I read Zhuan Falun, day and night. Although I was really sleepy, I just did not feel like sleeping. Even now, I study three to five lectures in Zhuan Falun every day.
Since I started reading Zhuan Falun, I no longer took any medication. After I finished reading Zhuan Falun for the first time, my health improved day by day. Not only did my body recover very quickly, my mood also became better. My family members were all wondering how I changed so much, but they did not know that I had been reading the Book Zhuan Falun. – I did not dare tell them as I was afraid that they might object due to the persecution. But, I thought that this was really a Book from heaven – it was so amazing. I knew that a Buddha was watching over me, and I was being given the chance to be saved.
Therefore, I faced Master’s photo and said, “From now on, I want to be your disciple. I want to cultivate and follow you home. This Fa is truly sacred. I don’t want to be an everyday person anymore. I want to be an immortal. Staying in the mundane world is really too hard!”
Since that day I have treated myself as a cultivator. I made strict demands on myself to abide by the requirements that are laid out in Zhuan Falun in everything that I do.
