(Minghui.org) I live in Vietnam. At the end of 2015 I was introduced to Falun Dafa. Before I began practicing I had bad habits and a body full of diseases. As I was tormented by illness, my grandson suggested I try Falun Dafa. 

I initially read the books Falun Gong and Essential for Further Advancement, and did the five Falun Gong exercises. When I read the books, I was very moved by the teachings of Master Li Hongzhi (the founder of Falun Dafa). I understood that sickness and unhappiness come from karma. 

Master said, 

“It’s because the way things work in the universe, according to Buddhist thought, is that everything in a person’s life has “causal reasons” behind it, and the ordeals of existence—such as coming into the world, aging, getting ill, and dying—are as they should be. The ailments and miseries that people experience result from their karma, and karma is the product of past wrongdoings. So the ordeals that people face are how they pay for their karma. This means that nobody may change them. Changing them would be like letting people build up debt and never having to pay. So people’s lives can’t be freely changed, and it would be wrong to do so.” (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun)

After I read both books my grandson handed me Zhuan Falun (the main book of Falun Dafa). Master’s teachings answered all the questions I’d had for years. The first two weeks of my practice, Master purified my body. I had karma elimination for two days straight. I was concerned, but my grandson told me that Master was purifying my body so I shouldn’t be afraid. The symptoms suddenly stopped and everything returned to normal early the next day. I am very grateful to Master. 

I persisted in reading the Fa, doing the exercises and cultivating my xinxing. Before, the relationship between my wife and me was very tense. We rarely talked and had conflicts every three days. Neither of us would give in even over the smallest thing. The long-term conflicts made me miserable and led to all kinds of physical ailments. I’d even considered divorce. 

After I started practicing Falun Dafa, all the conflicts subsided when I acted according to the Fa. I didn’t argue like I did before, and I always acquiesced to my wife. As my temperament changed, my stomach pain, low back pain, spine pain, and headaches disappeared. It’s been years since I touched a pill, and I am always full of energy. When I walk I feel as if someone is pushing me. 

Master said, 

“With a change in character will come a significant change in your body; physical changes in your body are guaranteed to accompany positive changes in your mind.” (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun)

Master also opened my celestial eye. I saw scenes in another dimension that increased my faith in the spiritual practice. In return for Master’s salvation, I went out to clarify the truth and talked about the health benefits of practicing Falun Dafa to my friends, colleagues, customers, etc., and everyone received it very well.

On the path of cultivation I encountered many tests that I sometimes passed and sometimes did not pass, yet my steadfastness in Falun Dafa has always remained the same. My family is harmonious and my wife is supportive of me. She always reminds me when it’s time to send righteous thoughts. Because she encourages me to practice, my wife was safe and not injured when she experienced a motorcycle accident. 

Urgency of Saving Lives During the Pandemic

At the end of 2019, the COVID epidemic broke out in China. Because the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) concealed information about the virus, it spread to the entire world. At that time few people in Vietnam were infected by it. Those who became ill recovered, so everyone thought that Vietnamese medicine was good. But I knew that the Divine was giving Vietnamese people a chance to change their attitudes towards Dafa. 

In a dream, I saw people running in a panic. I didn’t know what to do. When I looked up at the sky, I saw that the side bordering China was black. Huge clouds carrying the virus were heading towards us, so I also began running. Someone stopped me and said, “You are a Falun Dafa practitioner. Why are you running? Aren’t you supposed to save people?” I came to my senses. Many Vietnamese people still believed the lies spread by the CCP and did not have a good attitude towards Dafa.

Believing in Master Saved Me

When the epidemic started to break out in Ho Chi Minh City and Binh Duong, some of my coworkers became infected. The company was quarantined for two days for testing and the workers were sent home. 

I still hadn’t clarified the truth to all my coworkers. I took advantage of the time off to repair the wall behind our house because rats were able to enter through a hole. I was angry when I climbed the ladder. Then I began having difficulty standing. Suddenly, I felt dizzy and flushed. My hands and limbs trembled. I experienced shortness of breath and it took all my strength to cling to the ladder. My breathing was shallow and I almost passed out. I realized that it was wrong for me to be upset. 

In my struggle I asked Master to save me—I knew the old forces were persecuting me. I realized that the old forces were not allowed to persecute me because I am a Dafa disciple. What do I lack in my cultivation? I knew I needed to rectify myself in the Fa. I still have a mission to save people, and there are so many waiting for me to save them. After a while, I gradually recovered until I was completely conscious. I immediately went down the ladder and entered the house. My wife saw that I was pale, and I told her what happened. If it wasn’t for Master’s help, I wouldn’t have survived. I looked inward and found that I still had many shortcomings and attachments that I needed to eliminate.

Saving People During the Pandemic

The company held three on-site activities, so I brought cards with the nine auspicious words “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” to distribute to my coworkers. I clarified the truth, starting from the origin of the pandemic, the true nature of the CCP, to the persecution of Falun Dafa. I gave my collegues the cards and advised them to recite the nine words, which many people said protected them. Everyone took the cards. Previously, some people still did not want to listen and believed the CCP’s slander when I talked about the Party and the pandemic. This time they listened and agreed. 

Because I do the exercises early in the morning at my company, everyone wanted to know more about Dafa. I told them about the health benefits and how following Falun Dafa’s principles uplifted my morals. I pointed out that good health boosts one’s immune system and one can avoid the pandemic. One worker always watched me do the exercises from afar. One day when I finished the exercises I walked over to him. He said he watched me many times and wanted to talk to me but he didn’t want to bother me. 

He said he practiced the Cao Dai religion which included worshiping Jesus. I told him about the pandemic in Roman times that was the result of the Roman empire’s persecution of Jesus and his followers. I said many people feel that this COVID pandemic is caused by the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong. All countries that interact with the CCP have been impacted by it. Then I talked about the health benefits of the five exercises. 

When the other workers learned that reading Zhuan Falun can also improve their xinxing, they also wanted to try practicing. So after dinner, I studied the Fa until 8 p.m., then went to the company’s campus to teach the exercises and download Master’s Nine Lectures. My colleagues uploaded the lectures on their phones so they could listen to them. A few days later they said that their health was getting better and that they enjoyed listening to the Nine Lectures. When the 3-day quarantine was over, they were able to contact Falun Dafa practitioners in their local areas. This experience showed me that when we wish to save people, Master will bring sentient beings to us.

Seeing a Cataclysmic Volcano Eruption in a Dream

I dreamed that I heard a loud explosion. When I ran out, I saw a mountain explode and ashes rising. Trees were uprooted and thrown into the sky with their tops turned towards the ground. Everyone began running. I told them to shout Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, but no one opened their mouths. They were so terrified they couldn’t even speak. When I woke up, I recalled every detail of my dream and pondered whether Fa-rectification had come to an end. Master then published a new Jingwen “Wake Up” where he said, 

“The Fa’s rectification of the Cosmos has finished, and now a transition to the Fa’s rectification of the human world is taking place.” (“Wake Up”)

I had another very realistic dream. I saw that evil forces caught people and put them into labor camps like slaves. They were beaten and treated very cruelly. I used my supernormal abilities to dissolve the evil. At this moment I suddenly saw the sky burning red, the ground shook, and a volcano spewed out lava which covered the entire world. The sea water rose up carrying molten lava which engulfed entire cities. The water kept rising to cover one mountain after another, and wherever it went, everything burst into flames. I took my family and relatives to run up the highest mountain, as the water kept running behind me. 

I asked everyone to shout Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, but they were just like lost souls—indifferent. When I reached the highest mountain, I saw that the people I had clarified the truth to before were already on it. By the time the water reached my feet, I looked up at the sky and cried out in tears, Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Master please stop this! I saw a blurry image of Master wearing a yellow robe with many other Buddhas in the sky. Master stretched out his hand and the water immediately receded. Wherever the water receded, it revealed a landscape of desolation with nothing left. The great flood wiped everything away, and only a few survivors that knew the truth were left. 

Through this vision, I want to tell practitioners to be more diligent and save more lives. Those who hear the truth are the people who will be saved and survive.

I thank Master for saving me! Thank you fellow practitioners for listening to my sharing. If there is anything inappropriate, please correct me.
