1. Helping a Fellow Practitioner Suffering from an Illness Tribulation

While out clarifying the truth, I met another Falun Dafa practitioner who had been resting at home for a long time due to sickness karma. She suffered from insomnia and many other illnesses. Her condition prevented her from studying the Fa or practicing the exercises. She told me, “I came to find you for a chat.” I believed that this might be a good opportunity arranged by Master Li, Falun Dafa’s founder, to allow both of us to improve.

The following day we went out to clarify the facts to people and shared our experiences in between. Upon seeing she was ill, the practitioner’s family asked her to go to a hospital for treatment. However, she told her family, “I will not go. I am a cultivator. I am not suffering from an illness, neither will I admit to it.” She insisted on studying the Fa and practicing the exercises, but her illness persisted. She was unable to entirely overcome this illness karma. I advised her, “Ask Master for help. With such a great master and Fa at our side, there is nothing to fear from tribulations. Whenever we experience bodily discomfort which triggers our human notions, the evil factors may seize the chance to interfere.”

I realized that this practitioner was used to thinking and doing things according to her human notions. She did not follow the requirements of the Fa, nor regard herself as a cultivator. She took her various symptoms as signs of illness. During our conversations, I helped her resolve this contradiction as well as other problems she faced in cultivation practice and daily life. I explained that as a cultivator, it was good to encounter these problems and that her symptoms were false illusions and not an actual illness. I believed her body in another dimension could not fall asleep and was in pain, not her actual flesh body here. As cultivators, we should evaluate things from the Fa instead of using human notions.

This practitioner’s understanding began to improve after some time. She let go of her preconceived notions and started wholeheartedly clarifying the facts to save sentient beings. After she stopped worrying and placed her trust in Master, Master cleansed her body, aided in her recovery, and enabled her to study the Fa with peace of mind. Master even visited and guided her in her dreams.

This practitioner passed her illness tribulation before the eyes of her family. Having witnessed the power of Dafa, her entire family became supportive of her efforts to clarify the facts and save sentient beings.

2. Encouraging Former Practitioners to Return to Dafa

I was out clarifying the truth in late 2020 when I started talking to someone. We struck up a conversation, and I learned that she had previously studied Falun Dafa. She gave up the practice after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began the persecution of Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, and handed in her Dafa book to the authorities. For twenty years, she dared not resume cultivation practice, and neither did her family allow her to do so.

She lost contact with fellow practitioners but remained keen on finding a suitable Buddhist cultivation way. She tried various cultivation practices and even read the Bible, however, she fell ill after reading it just once. Unable to continue, she gave up on Christianity. I told her, “Although you stopped cultivating, Master has not given up on you and has remained by your side. As you still have the desire to obtain the Fa, Master sent me to meet you in order to clarify the truth to you and encourage you to return to Dafa.” The former practitioner was very happy and asked many questions about cultivation and the COVID-19 pandemic.

I told her, “Over the past 20 years, Dafa practitioners have been clarifying the facts to save sentient beings, persuading them to quit the CCP and its youth organizations. 200,000 Dafa practitioners have submitted their criminal complaints to sue Jiang Zemin for his role in the persecution.

“Saving sentient beings remained of utmost importance, especially during the pandemic, which threatened human lives. In order to save people, Dafa practitioners have been encouraging people to recite the phrases ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ Patients who sincerely recited these phrases would recover, ordinary people would be protected from the virus, and all would be blessed with good fortune. For Dafa practitioners who have not done well or given up the practice earlier, the pandemic has provided a rare opportunity to catch up on truth-clarification work.”

I later gave her copies of Master’s other Fa lectures, a copy of the exercise music, and a video of Master’s Fa lecture at Jinan. This former practitioner thanked me, “I will definitely cherish it this time. I was muddle-headed and let this precious chance slip by previously. Now I must seize the time left to study seriously.”

This practitioner’s appearance changed drastically after studying the Fa. Even her white hair turned black. Master cleansed her body and pointed out principles of the Fa while she was studying the books. She began to understand the purpose of cultivation practice and resolved to cultivate diligently. When we met a few days later, she happily said, “It is wonderful. I have found my way back to the true cultivation way, and Master is still taking care of me.”

I was overjoyed to see this former practitioner resume Dafa cultivation practice. At the same time, I was touched by Master’s boundless compassion in bringing all sentient beings under his care. Even former practitioners were not left behind.

3. The Miraculous Power of Dafa

I once encountered an elderly woman sitting on some steps with her legs stretched out in front of her. She told me, “My legs were so painful, I decided to sit and rest for a while before continuing my journey.” I advised her to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” as the phrases had miraculous healing effects. I also told her that only by quitting the Young Pioneers could she save her life, eliminate the pain from her illness, and escape this pandemic with her life. The elderly woman accepted my words and agreed to withdraw from the CCP.

At this moment, she moved her legs and realized that the pain had disappeared. “Oh, I can bend my knees, it doesn’t hurt anymore! For a long time, my knees could not bend and it was difficult to walk. Now it doesn’t hurt anymore. Thank you, thank you!” I told her that Master had seen her sincerity and healed her knees. I advised her to continue reciting the phrases in the future, and she happily agreed.

I advise the grateful people I meet who accept the truth and quit the CCP to thank Master instead of me. When I see sentient beings who understand the truth, accept the goodness of Dafa, and acknowledge the “Tiananmen self-immolation” incident as fabricated propaganda, I am happy for them from the bottom of my heart. With the limited time left, I intend to continue diligently saving sentient beings and doing the three things well.
