Experiencing the Miracles of Falun Gong

I'm a 62-year-old practitioner who started to practise Falun Gong in May 1996. I would like to share my story. From my story, you will understand the benefits of practising Falun Dafa and that it is a true science.

My first story relates how all my illnesses disappeared in one day.

I suffered from rhinitis in 1983. A doctor in my village gave me three prescriptions from traditional Chinese medicine. One of them was for an herb that shouldn't have exceeded ten grams. However, the doctor mistakenly wrote down one hundred grams. After I took the medicine, my entire body became covered with hives. At the same time, I developed a serious allergic reaction: asthma and allergic rhinitis. I couldn't lie down at night and could hardly sleep. Only by sitting up could I breathe.

At that time, my son was only four years old, and my husband was out of town, serving in the army. Although I took all kinds of medicines, nothing had any effect. I had to go to Beijing to look for a cure, and stay in my husband's workplace. Every four days, I spent three hours going back and forth to Beijing Hospital of Chinese Medicine to get a new prescription of Chinese medicine. After having endured this for six months, drinking bitter medicine for 180 days, my asthma only got a little better. I then returned home. However, the serious heart disease and insomnia that I had developed as a result of the previous poisoning caused me to lose all my strength. Every year, I had to spend about six months in the hospital due to cold and fever. I didn't even have enough strength to cook; however, I still had to do the housework. I felt that I was always in pain and always enduring hardships. In this way, I spent the next 13 years living in great discomfort.

One day in May 1996, I encountered a friend on the street. She introduced Falun Gong to me. It had never occurred to me to practice cultivation. However, she asked me to try. Falun Gong does not require people to not take medicine; therefore, when I started to practice I still took medicine at the same time. I didn't have the book Zhuan Falun [the principal teachings of the practice] at that time, thus I hadn't started to study the Fa yet. I just went to a park to do the exercises.

Seven days after I began doing the exercises, a Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference was about to be held in my city. Thinking that the location was too far away from my home and that I was so weak and needed to go to work and take care of my children, in the beginning I didn't think I'd be able to attend the conference. Fortunately, the director of my company asked me to go to downtown to handle some affairs. Therefore, since I was in the area I had the opportunity to attend the conference. There were more than 3,000 people there. I carefully listened to their cultivation experience sharing and felt greatly moved. Unconsciously, I fell asleep. After a while, I was awakened because I was all wet with sweat. This happened five to six times. On my way back home, I wondered why I didn't feel the usual discomfort in my body, and the illness symptoms I had been living with for so many years. Afterwards, I understood that Master had purified my body. I personally experienced the miraculous healing properties of Falun Gong! Since that day, I have been free of illness. All of the diseases that I had endured for thirteen years were gone!

The second story refers to how my xinxing (mind nature/character) was elevated and I became broad-minded after practising Falun Gong,

(1) Suffering Losses Without Any Regret

My husband has six brothers and sisters. He is the second child. My mother-in-law is 82 years old this year. After I married my husband, we helped take care of his parents. In addition, we helped his brothers and sisters find jobs and gave them money when they built their own houses.

They should have remembered all we had done to help them and at least try to repay it. However, when my father-in-law passed away two years ago, the brother-in-law and his wife asked us for another 4,300 yuan for funeral expenses, although the two brothers should have shared the fees equally. They claimed that the additional money was for the people who helped carry the coffin. But actually those people hadn't ask for any money. When we realized this, my husband felt very angry and so was I. I didn't sleep well for more than ten days.

Then I remembered that I was a practitioner. I should discipline myself according to the Fa. I resolved the conflict and the funeral procession calmly took place without any further tension.

(2) Taking Care of Parents Without Consideration for Gain or Loss

My mother-in-law was ill and had to be hospitalized due to having a cerebral haemorrhage on January 5 this year. Later on, doctors refused to give her injections because they couldn't find her blood vessels. Then she had to leave the hospital and be taken care of at home. Now, my mother-in-law was ill in bed and couldn't take care of herself. My brother-in-law didn't contribute any effort or money, and neither did my other sisters-in-law. I felt uneasy about it. What should I do? I needed to look inward and do everything according to Master's Fa principles. Master said in Zhuan Falun:

"How should we deal with this issue? Upon running into this conflict, we should, first of all, keep a cool head, and we should not behave the same as that person. Of course, we can explain the matter kindly, and it is not a problem if we clarify the issue. But you should not become too attached to it. If we encounter these problems, we should not compete and fight like others. If you do what that person did, aren't you an ordinary person? Not only should you not compete and fight like him, but also you should not resent that person in your heart. Really, you should not hate that person."

Master's Fa opened my mind and I spent 11,000 yuan to hire a nanny to take care of my mother-in-law.

(3) Resolving Conflicts and Succeeding in Not Fighting Back

My daughter-in-law is a straightforward and sometimes abrasive woman. She's had many conflicts with my son, my husband and I. At one point she even wanted to divorce my son.

Last May, I went out of town to visit my grandson. I took 5,000 yuan and also did a lot of housework. Shortly after I arrived at my son's home, we arranged that I would bring my grandson to my home after he became one year old.

When my grandson became one year old, I was preparing to bring him to my home. Suddenly, my daughter-in-law became angry and shouted, "You are taking my son away! Do you know how that makes me feel? Do you know what taking the son away from his mother feels like?" I said, "You are bad-tempered and I can't bear it here." This one sentence made her very angry. She threw her slippers at me, and punched me twice with her fists. In addition, she threw a thermos flask, a play mobile and a feeding bottle on the ground. I was angry at that time. However, remembering Master's words that "as a practitioner one should not fight back when being punched or insulted," (Zhuan Falun) I said to my daughter-in-law, "My Master asks me to 'not to fight back when being punched or insulted.' I won't fight with you."

The next day my son returned from business. My daughter-in-law was still causing a disturbance. I didn't say a word and went out to listen to Master's Fa. Master's Fa opened my mind: I should not only be a good person, but also be tolerant without anger.

At that moment, both my son and daughter-in-law called me, asking me to come back in. After I went back, I just did what I should do. Afterwards, my daughter-in-law realized it was her fault and apologized. Using this opportunity, I told them, "I could remain calm in this conflict because I practice Dafa and because I follow the principles Master teaches me." I also helped my daughter-in-law's family members quit the Chinese Communist Party.

Falun Gong is able to heal illnesses, and following the Fa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance helps us upgrade our moral standard. It is good for families and the whole society.

I hope that everyone gets to know about Falun Gong. Believing "Falun Dafa is good" will bring you boundless blessings and benefits.
