(Minghui.org) My husband’s cousin practiced Falun Dafa in 2015. My husband told me about the practice, and every day after dinner, he and I went to her place to study the teachings. Although I always read Zhuan Falun with them, my understanding of Dafa was very shallow.

I was interested in square dancing at that time and went dancing almost every evening. After accompanying my husband to his cousin’s place to learn the Dafa teachings a few times, I decided that I preferred to dance and rejoined that group. Strangely enough, as soon as I arrived, the stereo would run out of power or malfunction in some way. Or some other situation would arise that made it impossible for us to dance. So, I went back to accompanying my husband in reading the Falun Dafa books.

As I was still skeptical of the practice, I found a cherry covered with udumbara flowers in our orchard one day in the spring of 2016. I counted and was stunned to find there were over seventy flowers. I had read an article saying that the udumbara flower blooms once every 3,000 years. When it blooms, it indicates the Holy Wheel-turning King will come to the human world preaching his Fa and offering salvation to people.

Before I spotted the udumbara flowers, I did not believe that they were real, let alone the legend of the Holy Wheel-turning King. Now, I was seeing the flowers with my own eyes, looking exactly like the illustration in the article. This greatly encouraged me. I was utterly convinced that the legend was true and hence wanted to practice Falun Dafa.

I have now been practicing Falun Dafa for seven years. Master Li (founder of Falun Dafa) has been watching over me and protecting me during that time. I will share details about two life-threatening accidents I encountered and miraculously survived.

The First Accident

One day in the fall of 2019, while biking to work, I came to an intersection showing a green light. As I rode through, an Audi sedan came speeding from the side, hit me, and sent me flying.

The driver came over and asked: “Are you OK?” I said I was fine and he could leave. He left without a word. I got up slowly from the ground and found I was indeed fine, except the bike chain had fallen off. A coworker happened to pass by and saw what happened.

“How could you let him go?” she asked. “I am fine. Please do not worry,” I replied.

I also thought of what Master said,

“All of these kinds of things come to take away one’s life. But one will not be in real danger.” (Lecture Three, Zhuan Falun)

I was deeply moved that Master had protected me.

The Second Accident

Another almost fatal accident happened several days before I wrote this article. I went home after work at around 8 p.m. While riding my bike through an intersection, I noticed a white car approaching in the distance. I pedaled faster and tried to clear the intersection. However, I was hit and fell unconscious in the middle of the crossing.

I do not know how long it was, but I dimly heard a woman's voice saying, “Hello, hello.” I slowly opened my eyes and saw a woman in her 20s looking at me with concern.

“Where is this? What happened to me?” I asked. She helped me slowly get up, and I felt very dizzy. That’s when I realized my bike and a large motorcycle were lying about ten meters away. I felt pain from head to toe, and there was a big bump on the left side of my head. I realized she had collided with me. She called the police.

It was rush hour, and the police claimed that they were not able to respond. So we were told to go to the traffic police brigade to deal with it ourselves. I called my husband to come and get me while reciting the auspicious phrases: “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

I also felt sorry for the woman and told her I could help repair her motorcycle. But she was more worried about me because she had insurance, and she knew how hard she hit me. I said I would be fine. We exchanged contact information before I went home with my husband.

“Master saved your life today since nobody could survive an impact like this. You'd better thank Master,” My husband said gratefully.

“You are right. The woman did not see me at all, because she was driving at full speed. Without Master’s protection, I would have been finished right there,” I said.

After I cleaned myself off, I suddenly felt cold and shaky and was unable to sleep. When I got up the following day, I noticed bruises all over my body. My husband told me the scene was horrible last night: I was covered with mud, my clothes were torn, and my bike was destroyed.

I stayed at home for the next few days, doing Dafa exercises and studying the Falun Dafa teachings. Within a few days, I recovered completely. I planned to contact the woman to tell her how Dafa saved my life.

Life is so fragile that an unexpected accident can easily take away a person’s life. I am so fortunate to be a Dafa practitioner. Master not only protects me every moment, but also guides me to be a good person. I used to be selfish with a hot temper, and I was even taken to the police station once because of fighting.

If this accident had happened before I practiced Falun Dafa, I would never have forgiven her, let alone think of repairing her motorcycle. I marveled at the greatness of Dafa changing me.
