(Minghui.org) Komang Widiapura, an agricultural counselor from Bali, was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), or lupus for short, four years ago.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues, leaving the body vulnerable to infection or inflammation. Regardless of age, people suffering from lupus face a life-threatening state at any time and must take medicine for life.

Some lupus patients have recovered after practicing Falun Dafa. Mr. Widiapura is one of them.

In 2019, he felt fatigue, which made it difficult for him to walk and move, let alone work. His work was delayed because his attendance was very low. He spent most of his time recuperating at home. His life was full of worry and despair. He tried every remedy, to no avail. He could only hope for a miracle.

Because of lupus, he also had several complications. He was diagnosed with pneumonia with sepsis, as well as bilateral pleural effusion, transaminitis, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), moderate anemia, dyspepsia, and even cardiomegaly.

At his lowest point, his friend came to Mr. Widiapura’s home and told him about Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong). As he listened to his friend’s explanation, he felt that this was what he had been looking for, for a long time. He was especially drawn to Falun Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. He felt a peace of mind.

He immediately began to learn Falun Dafa. After practicing for three consecutive months, Falun Dafa restored his vitality and made him feel refreshed. Unexpectedly, he found that all the pain suddenly disappeared, and he didn’t even need to rely on all the medicines anymore. He was amazed and happy because he regained his confidence in life.

Along with practicing the exercises, Mr. Widiapura reads Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa. He said that after reading the book, he could let go of anger and his unstable emotions, as well as hatred and jealousy. By continuously correcting his mentality, he was guided to be a good person. He was able to think calmly, and he’s become patient.

In 2022, in order to meet the conditions for work, he went for a health check. Because of his previous lupus history, the doctor advised him to do another laboratory test. Both test results were excellent and really convinced the doctor that he was cured. The doctor said he no longer needed any medication.

Practicing Falun Dafa has so many benefits that Mr. Widiapura began introducing Falun Dafa to all his relatives, colleagues and friends. His personal experience and recovery amazed the people around him. Some of his colleagues began to read Zhuan Falun and learned how to practice Falun Dafa.
