(Minghui.org) I am 61 years old and started to practice Falun Dafa only a bit over a year ago. Master saved me when I was at the brink of death. He gave me a new life. I knew this practice was not a common one, but rather a very special one. I felt fortunate to become Master’s disciple now, at the end of the Fa-rectification period. I also experienced the beauty and power of the Buddha Fa. I couldn’t be more joyful, and I just want to express my gratitude to Master and share with fellow practitioners how Dafa’s miraculous nature manifested in my life.
Given Master’s Protection, I Felt No Pain After Surgery
I was experiencing severe pain in November 2019, and went to the hospital where I was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis and a thymoma in my thorax. After I learned how serious my illnesses were, I got very depressed, felt restless, and was still in extreme pain. The doctor suggested that I have surgery to remove the thymoma as soon as possible to avoid any lesions. I was terribly scared and nervous!
My sister is a Falun Dafa practitioner. After she learned about my situation, she visited me, and brought Master’s recorded Fa lectures and her DVD player. She said, “Take it easy; you’ll get well soon. Let’s study the Fa together. Only Dafa can save you.” She also told me to recite the phrases, “Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!” I always believed Dafa is good. Thus, without hesitation, I went ahead, and did what she told me to do.
Later, my sister told me that on the day of my surgery, a few of my relatives and friends went and waited in the lobby. My sister asked everyone to recite the two phrases, so Master will help me and everything will go well. The surgery went much quicker than expected and was very successful.
I was taken to the ICU after the surgery. After the anesthesia wore off around midnight, I was muddle-headed. Suddenly, I saw a group of people appear on the wall across from me. When I took a closer look, they turned out to be Buddhas. There was a big Buddha in the front, wearing a yellow robe with curly hair. He sat in the lotus position, facing me with his palm erect. I was extremely excited. Who are those Buddhas? Did they come to protect me?
They appeared another time when I was reciting the two phrases. I understood that it was Master protecting and empowering me, as well as adjusting my body. Thus, I didn’t feel any pain from my wound at all, whereas my roommates had to use a pain pump during the surgery, and continued to feel so much pain that they cried and screamed. However, I didn’t use any of that and was fine that night.
The next morning, the doctor checked on me. He said I did well and then transferred me to a regular ward. When my sister learned about it, she said, “Master looked after you. You saw Master’s law body, so your inborn quality must be very good! Don’t miss this opportunity; start practicing when you get home.” I agreed.
I was discharged from the hospital on the fifth day. When the nurse removed the thick tubes that were inserted in my body during surgery, I didn’t feel anything. The other patients screamed when theirs were removed. My sister said Master endured the pain for me. I made up my mind to cultivate Dafa.
Dafa Displays Its Power
After I went home, my sister brought me a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa, and Master’s exercise instruction DVD. It was right before the Chinese New Year. The pandemic broke out before I started to attend the Fa-study. Under the lock-down, no one could leave their home. I didn’t have a DVD player at home to play the DVD, so I couldn’t learn the exercises. I only read Zhuan Falun.
I did well after going home. Before I was discharged, the doctor said the thymoma removed from my body was at the stage II level, so I must also get radiation therapy afterwards. Otherwise, it would likely recur later.
As I just began to study the Fa, I lacked a good understanding of the Fa-principles and couldn’t let go of my attachment to illness. After hearing what the doctor said, I proceeded to get the radiation therapy, but after receiving the treatment for a month, I didn’t get any better. I got worse. But I didn’t know why.
How could Master still take care of me when I used a regular person’s approach? I felt an extreme lack of energy and couldn’t get out of bed. I also had a relapse of the myasthenia gravis and had difficulty swallowing and drinking. Even though my husband blended my meal to make it puree-like, I still couldn’t swallow it. It was also very hard for me to lift my head. My husband had to take me to the emergency room. After examining me, the doctor just wanted to send me home, as it was pointless for me to receive any treatment. Upon seeing that, I called my son over to explain that it was the aftermath of my treatment.
When Master saw me not enlightening, he had me remember my sister. Right then, my sister also thought about me and gave me a call. She heard me mumbling, and I asked her, “Can you come over?” She knew I must have gotten worse, so she immediately came with a DVD player.
She studied the Fa, sent forth righteous thoughts with me, as well as showed me how to do the exercises. When I sent forth righteous thoughts, she said, “Please have this thought, ‘From now on, I am Master Li Hongzhi’s disciple. Master takes full charge of me, so no evil beings dare to harm me!’” At that time, I had a lot of difficulties in studying the Fa and doing the exercises. I could only study for a little while after taking a break; however, I did the best I could do.
After my sister left, I then began to watch the exercise instruction DVD. I was still weak and couldn’t sit up, so I used my cell phone to record the exercise instructions and then watched it while sitting in bed. After I learned the exercises, I wanted to do them. But I hadn’t been able to eat for a few days, nor get out of bed, how could I do the exercises? Yet I made up my mind to do the exercises standing up. And I did just that! It was truly miraculous! With this thought in mind, I managed to finish the four exercises in an hour. My sister-in-law was very surprised and said, “Incredible! Aren’t you fine now?!”
I indeed felt that my body became light, but I was unable to swallow. Seeing I couldn’t eat or lift my head, I got very worried. What should I do? Suddenly, I thought about what my sister said: "When running into difficulties, ask for Master’s help. I should change my notion and not treat it the same way a regular person would." True! I was a practitioner now.
I then said to Master, “Master, I am your disciple now. I want to leave everything up to you. Can you help your disciple to eat so I can have the strength to do the exercises?” Upon saying that, I heard a “crack” in my throat. Then the block was gone. With that, I could also lift my head. Soon enough, I finished my meal. I was so moved that I cried in excitement. I shouted, “Master helped me to finish my meal. Thank you, Master! Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!” I kept shouting and shouting.
My husband was in another room. After he learned what happened, he was also moved to tears. He said, “Greetings, Master! Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!” My sister-in-law was also there. She also became teary and excitedly expressed gratitude to Master.
I feel that my home was surrounded by Master’s Buddha light. Every one of us couldn’t keep calm for a while and felt infinite admiration for Master and Dafa. This experience also firmed up my determination to cultivate in Dafa. A hospital can’t cure practitioners, but only make the situation worse. Only Dafa can solve the problem at its root, such that I could become a healthy person and be reborn in Dafa. I will for sure walk on this path all the way until the end with no hesitation.
Clarifying the Truth to Save Sentient Beings
From then on, my life began to return to normal. I studied the Fa, did the exercises, and sent forth righteous thoughts non-stop. I became healthier and stronger day by day, and I was upbeat every day. Within six months, I, my sister, and my brother-in-law set up a Fa-study group. We studied the Fa three times a week. My husband often listened to Master’s recorded lectures with me and read experience sharing articles on the Minghui website. He was very supportive of my cultivation.
My sister went out to clarify the truth to people every morning. In the afternoon, she studied the Fa and shared with us. We looked inward together. Whenever I was out and ran into someone with a predestined relationship with me, I’d clarify the truth to them. Sometimes I also handed out amulets and validated the beauty and extraordinary nature of Dafa to people by sharing my personal experiences.
I also went to the hospital to find the doctors who treated me and other patients I met there who were still in the hospital. I told them how my illnesses were completely healed through practicing Dafa. They were really shocked, as they knew there is no cure for myasthenia gravis. I told them I recovered after practicing Dafa, which is the best treatment for healing illness and keeping fit. I reminded them that by sincerely reciting, “Falun Dafa is wonderful!,” one will have miraculous effects.
Recently, many people came to our home to celebrate my father-in-law’s birthday. Among them, many came with the purpose of checking on me. I told them how I recovered. Some kept nodding their heads. Some said it was truly incredible. Some also shouted excitedly, “Falun Dafa is wonderful!” Many of them knew that the atheism promoted by the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is a lie, whereas Dafa is wronged, and the CCP is extremely evil! The CCP has used its lies to deceive kind Chinese people every day. After our relatives and friends learned the truth, they decided to quit the CCP and its youth organizations, choosing a bright future for themselves.
I felt so glad and thanked Master for having arranged this opportunity for me to save people and validate Dafa. I’ll do my very best to do the three things.
Falun Dafa taught me the true meaning of life. I felt fulfilled and happy every day. I also learned that during various reincarnations, people committed a lot of bad things, for which one has to suffer and pay back one’s karma. In my future cultivation, I’ll continue to improve my xinxing, eliminate all kinds of regular people’s desires and attachments, assimilate to Dafa, be a true Dafa disciple, and not let down expectations from Master and sentient beings.
