(Minghui.org) My neighbor is a very hard-working, elderly lady. Ten years ago, at 71, she decided to renovate her reception room since she found the ceiling too low. After starting this project, her house became very cluttered. One day while cleaning up, she lost her balance while standing on a stool, badly hitting her back against it.
After falling, she struggled to breathe, let alone utter a word or call for help. Luckily, her windows were open to let in the summer breeze, and her neighbors heard a suspicious thud from inside her home. Rushing over, they found her lying on the floor, groaning in pain. They took her to the hospital. Her scans revealed a fractured spine, and she was instructed to stay hospitalized to recuperate. However, as her family was not well-off, they decided to take her home.
When I heard, I went to visit her and saw that her daughter had come to take care of her. When I saw her, she started to cry and said, “I’m finished this time! My spine is broken. I am paralyzed and can't get up anymore.” She was already in ailing health with liver ascites, so this fall put her in a terrible situation. She was in unbearable pain. She had difficulty sleeping, moving, urinating, and having bowel movements. She became entirely dependent on her daughter. She was anxious, angry, and depressed.
I comforted her, “Don’t be anxious or angry. Just think of it as paying back your karma. How about you give Falun Dafa a try? If you can’t read or write, just chant the phrases ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good.’ You don’t have to spend a penny, and it might alleviate your pain and help you recover. Dafa can protect you, as the power of Buddha Fa is boundless.”
She said, “Oh, I don’t believe in those things. I won’t chant that. I have always been a kind-hearted person. You and I have been neighbors for many years. Have you ever seen me start a fight or do anything wrong? Why have I had such a calamity and nearly lost my life? I’m not in the mood to recite anything.”
“How about giving it a try since you are feeling so terrible; you have nothing to lose anyway.”
At that time, her daughter chimed in, “Why don’t you just do as my auntie [referring to me] said? See how healthy she looks now? Wasn’t she also full of illnesses before and got cured after practicing Falun Dafa? She isn’t asking you to practice Dafa. Can’t you just recite these words? With you groaning day and night, even I can’t get proper sleep. If this continues, I’ll burn out, too.”
“If you don’t want to recite it, I will!” She turned to me, “It’s only chanting ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,’ right?”
I said yes.
When my neighbor saw that her daughter was anxious, she said, “Okay, I’ll do it.” Then, she started to recite it.
I went to see my neighbor every few days. She made some improvement every time I saw her. Her complexion improved significantly.
Gradually, she was able to get up and move around slowly. Whenever she bumped into other neighbors, she would tell them about her miraculous experience, “Falun Dafa is truly amazing. The hospital said that there was no hope for me to recover, but I was able to walk in 47 days just by reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ So if you have any problems, please give these words a try.”
She also told her relatives that she recovered from reciting the phrases and asked them to do the same. All her relatives were convinced that Dafa is good and agreed to recite the phrases.
With the grace of Dafa, my neighbor fully recovered. This year, my neighbor is 81 years old. She is able to walk to the shops and cook for her family of six. She and her family have a harmonious and happy life.

Falun Dafa is extraordinary and magnificent, and its mighty power reaches both the macrocosm and the microcosm. The case detailed in this article is just a tiny manifestation of the power of Dafa on the level of the secular world. While Dafa can bring blessings to humankind, Dafa's extraordinariness and magnificence are more for people to return to their true origins.
