(Minghui.org) I started following the spiritual practice of Falun Dafa in 1995 because I was ill and had no other way to cure my illnesses. I didn’t expect that after practicing for just a few days my serious illnesses would be gone. But they were, and I thought: “Falun Dafa is really amazing. I haven’t been asked for a penny and I haven’t even seen Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, in person, yet, all my illnesses were removed. This practice truly lives up to its reputation I am determined to practice.
Now that I am 75, I have been practicing Falun Dafa for 27 years. During that time, I have not been to a hospital, am disease-free, and walk with a light step. This in itself is a miracle. I would like to share a miraculous story that I truly believed happened as a result of my cultivation.
One day a few years ago, I bought a bag of buns that were made on-site at a grain store. My family liked that kind of bun. I served the buns for lunch because they were fresh out of the steamer and were still warm. By the time I got to the table, my husband had already finished one of the buns. I picked one up, took a big bite, and heard a "quack" sound. I threw the bun on the table with an "oops," covered my left cheek with my hand, spit the bun onto the table, and saw a stone bigger than a bean, with sharp edges, roll away. There was blood on it.
My husband hurriedly got up and brought water for me to rinse my mouth. I walked around the room in pain. As the pain started to subside, I carefully touched the two aching teeth with my finger, and said: “Both of my teeth were loosened by the rock.” I looked at the blood on my finger and said: “Why didn’t they [the people at the grain store] pick out the rocks, didn’t they see such a big stone?” My husband said: “How can they do that? They sift the flour, which removes the big stones, but small ones may be left behind. However, such a big rock is rare, and it is even rarer to be so sharp. You are just unlucky. In the afternoon, I will accompany you to a hospital. After that, we will go to the grain store to ask for compensation.”
At this point, I calmed down. I knew that the workers at the store didn’t deliberately add stones to the buns, and they were not at fault. I cultivate according to Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, I should be kind to others, and think of others first in every situation. I can’t fight for my own interests like ordinary people do, or ask for compensation for losses. Besides, the people at the store depend on selling buns and noodles to make a living, which is not easy. Paying for my loss would make them lose their profits. I can’t do that kind of thing. Besides, I also should take some responsibility. If I was careful, and didn’t take such a big bite, there wouldn’t have been such a serious consequence.
After thinking about it I said, “Forget it, I will not go to a hospital, nor will I seek compensation.” My husband said: “Then you take the loss. It was not your fault.” I said: “They didn’t do it intentionally. Everything has a karmic relationship, maybe in my past life I did the same thing to them, and in this life they came for retribution, and now we are even. You ate two buns and you were fine. I suffered miserably after just one bite. Don’t you think this is retribution?” Hearing what I said, he was amused, and stopped insisting that I ask for compensation. The incident was over.
My teeth didn’t hurt anymore, but those two teeth were still loose, and caused trouble when I ate. Sometimes I wanted to just have them pulled out, but then I thought it’s better to let them fall out by themselves.
Six months later, guests from my hometown came to visit me, and I took them to a zoo. It was a hot day, so I bought a popsicle for each person. Before I finished eating my popsicle, two teeth fell out one after another, and there was no pain or bleeding. On the surface, it was caused by cold from the popsicle causing the gums to shrink. In fact the two teeth had finished their lifespans. I looked at the teeth with long spiky roots in the palm of my hand, and felt very sorry. I didn’t want to throw them away. I wrapped them in tissue paper and put them in my pocket to take home.
One day, my children were going to a dentist for dental implants and asked me to go too. I said: “No, I’ll wait for new teeth to grow out on their own.” As soon as I said that, they burst out laughing. In fact, I said it without thinking.
At the end of last year, I often felt that the inside left side of my mouth was swollen and uncomfortable. I knew that was where a tooth had fallen out, and the space always held food after eating. So I rinsed my mouth from time to time, and could usually rinse out some bits of food. But in those days, I couldn’t rinse out anything, and the area felt swollen after brushing my teeth, which was uncomfortable. I used a small flashlight and looked in a mirror to see the area. It turned out that a new tooth had grown in and filled the space. What a surprise! However, it also seemed that I expected it at some level. The new tooth was in just the right place. It’s just that the color didn’t match the surrounding teeth—the new tooth was white, and the other teeth were yellowish.
At the beginning of February this year, the right inner side of my mouth was swollen and uncomfortable. Again, I used a flashlight to look inside, but didn’t see anything. I touched the swollen spot with my finger and felt a half-grown tooth. Because the tooth hadn’t come out completely, and was on the inner side, it was blocked by other teeth, and couldn’t be seen. Now, the two new teeth are almost as big as my other teeth. Any other teeth that were previously loose were repositioned and firm. I can eat corn on the cob, chew peanuts, soybeans, and eat raw mustard pickles like a young person. It sounds unbelievable, but it really happened to me.
In the past, people said, “A man seldom lives to be 70 years old.” I was able to re-grow my teeth at the age of seventy-four—a real miracle. I believe that this is because I cultivate Dafa (the Great Law) and Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. The power of Dafa is boundless. There are simply too many miracles to count that have happened to Falun Gong practitioners.
I sincerely hope that people can obtain a copy of the book Zhuan Falun to read. You may have an unexpected gain after reading it. Once you practice Falun Dafa sincerely, miracles will manifest in your life.
