(Minghui.org) I am 69 years old. When I was much younger and supposed to be going to school, I got caught up in the Chinese Communist Party’s ( CCP) “Great Leap Forward,” which was followed by the three-year famine.
There were several siblings in my family and we didn’t have enough to eat, so I didn’t go to school and was illiterate.
After cultivating Falun Dafa, I believed in Master and the Fa. Master taught me to read, resolved my physical ordeals, and has always looked after me and protected me.
Around August 15, 1997, a friend took me to watch Master Li’s video of the Fa teachings. After watching it and thinking it was excellent, I decided to practice Falun Dafa.
Master Protected Me in a Car Accident
About five p.m. the day after it snowed, the roads were slippery with snow still on the ground. My husband was carrying me on his bicycle. When we were crossing an intersection, a car ran into us from behind and pushed us more than 10 meters. We stopped at the curb, and I was thrown under the car.
The driver said afterward that there was ice on the road, that his wheels had slipped, and he couldn’t control the car. My husband and the driver pulled me out from under the car.
I said, “I’m fine.” Frightened, the driver said, “Let’s go to a hospital to check.” I told him again that I was fine and got up by myself. My right leg didn’t hurt but was it numb and my sight was blurry.
When I looked at the buildings around me, I wondered where I was as I couldn't recognize my surroundings. Then, I felt a warm current flow from the top of my head to my feet, which was very comfortable, and suddenly I could see clearly and knew where I was.
I told the driver, “We are Falun Dafa practitioners and our master protects us. I guarantee that everything will be fine. You can leave.”
I looked at my right leg the next day and it was purple all over. If Master hadn't protected me, who knows how bad things could have been?
Master Taught Me to Read
My husband soon secured a copy of Zhuan Falun, Falun Dafa's main text. But I was illiterate, so he read it to me every day. When he was not at home, I couldn’t study it. I thought, “I can’t study the Fa, what should I do?”
I held Zhuan Falun in my hands and was very worried. I did ask my other family members for help when they were home.
Once my daughter got irritated and said, “I taught you several times. How can you forget again?” I didn’t mind what others said as long as I could find someone to teach me to read. I worried when there was no one around at home, as I couldn’t ask anyone for help.
One day, I cried while holding Zhuan Falun and fell asleep. It seemed I was in a dream, and I saw that the sky was full of big golden characters and each character was bigger than a book. Then, amazingly, I could read the words.
At that time, the CCP had not yet started to persecute Dafa, and we practitioners took turns reading the book at the group study. When it was my turn, I was nervous and my palms were sweating. I looked at Zhuan Falun and opened my mouth. Amazingly, I could read.
After I finished reading, other practitioners said I read well. At the time, I didn’t know how I could read. It was actually Master’s blessing. Even though I had never been to school, I could read Zhuan Falun fluently within about six months.
I thought this was such a great Fa that I must memorize it. It took me a few months to memorize the whole book of Zhuan Falun. I also transcribed it.
Although my handwriting was not good, I was very attentive. Seeing that I, who was illiterate, could read, memorize, and transcribe a book, my relatives and friends thought it was incredible.
Last year, for a period of time, my legs and stomach were swollen, and I couldn’t get my feet into my shoes. Later, my arms and hands swelled. The backs of my hands were swollen like a mango, and then my face swelled.
My left hand started to cramp. I used my right hand to massage the cramped left finger, while reciting: “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” Amazingly, the swollen hand flattened. My children also thought it was amazing.
After a night, my swollen stomach became normal, and my legs were also no longer swollen. My whole body felt light.
I have a relative who had leg pain. He went to the city hospital and was told it had to do with his kidneys.
He later went to the provincial hospital and finally had surgery on his leg. The hospitalization cost him more than 100,000 yuan.
I said to my son, “Look, my whole body was swollen so badly, yet I didn’t take a single pill and didn’t need to be hospitalized. We saved tens of thousands of yuan. This is the power of Dafa.” My son was convinced.
Falun Dafa has given me wisdom and a healthy body and improved my moral standards. My whole family, as well as my relatives and friends, have witnessed the miracles that happened to me, and they support me in practicing Falun Dafa.
I hope everyone remembers “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I hope they quit the CCP and its youth organizations and that the miracles of Dafa will manifest in everyone.
