How I Came to Practise Falun Dafa
I'm a fifty-three-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Pingxiang of Jiangxi Province in China. In 2004, I developed a skin disease which resulted in red swellings all over my body. I first sought treatment at a hospital and then, later, with a well-known traditional Chinese medicine doctor. However, there was no improvement, leaving me in a painful state.
One day in May of 2005, I was extremely uncomfortable and frustrated. My eyesight was blurry and I could hardly breathe. I could not stand or sit down. The red swellings covered my body and they were itchy and painful. Even my face and ears were swollen. I had no choice but to to call my daughter who lived out of town, and asked for her help. The next day, she came home and brought with her an amulet, a note that said "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good," a copy of Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party , materials detailing the facts about Falun Gong and the persecution, and a Falun Dafa exercise tape. I sincerely recited "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good" and began to learn Falun Gong. I had this strong thought in my mind, "I want to be a practitioner!" Soon after, my sickness vanished, leaving my whole family and my friend in awe and amazement at the power of Falun Gong.
When my friends and family enquired about Falun Dafa, I clarified the truth to them, gave them the amulets, and said that people around the world know that "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good." I also told them that heaven will disintegrate the Chinese Communist Party, The Nine Commentaries is saving people, and encouraged them to withdraw from the party's three organisations. Gradually, they quit the party's three organisations.
A Miracle Leads me to Practise Falun Gong
Narrated by a practitioner from Hunan Province, China
My name is Zhou Dao (pseudonym) and I am fifty-six years old. I began to practise Falun Gong in May of 2007. A miracle that happened to me in 2006 made me understand deeply the kindness that was bestowed upon me, and it is a feeling that I'm unable to express with words.
Now that the Chinese New Year is approaching, I'd like to "heshi and kowtow" to Falun Gong's founder and my Teacher, Mr Li Hongzhi, and express my gratitude toward Teacher through the Dafa websites, using honest and simple words, "Reverent Teacher, Happy Chinese New Year! I'm grateful that Teacher saved me from the brink of death and gave me the opportunity to practise Falun Gong. I will be steadfast in cultivation, follow Teacher, and try my best to do the 'three things' well. Reverend Teacher, please rest assured."
I'd also like to share how I came to practise Falun Dafa and encourage predestined people who are still fooled by the Chinese Communist Party to sincerely recite, "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good."
In December of 2004, I suddenly felt an excruciating pain and fell down in the restroom. I was taken to the hospital and was diagnosed with disease of the liver and gallbladder. Although I spent more than a staggering 60,000 yuan for surgery, the doctor did not think a more thorough surgery would help. So I was released from the hospital.
In October of 2006, the excruciating pain returned. I went to the hospital and, this time, I was diagnosed with liver cancer. At the time, I was very thin and pale. I did not have much sensation, and could not eat or drink. My family was very sad. Others ran away as soon as they saw me, as if they had seen a ghost. I was in such pain that I wanted to die. I struggled in between living and dying. I tried to commit suicide several times, but failed, I only ended up with more injuries.
One day, at the end of 2006, the pain became worse and I was vomiting. When I thought I could not bear it anymore, I suddenly remembered the words on a postcard that said, "Please recite sincerely - Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good. These words will protect you when you are in danger." The postcard was given to my wife by her coworker, a Falun Dafa practitioner.
My survival instinct propelled me to recite "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good." As soon as I said that, I did not feel the pain and I stopped vomiting! It was truly a miracle! It was something completely inconceivable! This experience dispelled all the lies I had heard on the television broadcasts by the Chinese Communist Party. I could not help but believe that what the practitioners had shared about their cultivation experiences and the facts in the various materials were all true. In May of 2007, I obtained a copy of Zhuan Falun from a Falun Gong practitioner.
Another miracle happened after six months of cultivation, in October of 2007. While watching the 9-Day Falun Gong Lecture in Guangzhou video, I began to feel uncomfortable. The pain returned, and I could not get up. Thus, I recited in my heart, "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good."
Twenty days later, my wife noticed a yellow bump, the size of an egg, on my chest, and urged me to go to the hospital to have it removed. Instead, I decided to cut open the yellow bump. After I disrobed, I noticed the yellow bump had turned green in the centre and red in the surrounding area. I stuck a toothpick into the green centre and pus and blood squirted out about a meter. I did not feel any pain at all. My wife stood far away and was scared by the scene. I calmly squeezed the bump, cleaned up the area, and put a piece of gauze on it. Under Teacher's protection, I was able to pass another life and death test.
I am now completely healthy and my body feels light. The things that I have experienced may well sound miraculous and I would have found such things hard to believe had it not been for my personal experiences and my having the chance to read Zhuan Falun and practise the five Falun Gong exercises. I suggest that you do too.
