(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is an ancient spiritual discipline guided by the universal characteristics of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” The self-cultivation aspect of the practice is complemented by five sets of simple and graceful meditation exercises. Being a cultivation system of both mind and body, the practice enables practitioners to attain a state of physical and mental health within a short period of time.

For people who practice Falun Dafa, not only they, themselves, benefit from it, but many of their family members have also received blessings. 

Below are two stories submitted by two Falun Dafa practitioners.

First Practitioner's Story: Son's Kidney Stone Gone After Reciting “Falun Dafa Is Good”

I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. My son does not practice, but he has always supported me. 

My son suddenly had a sharp pain on the right side of his back on the night of May 19, 2020. The pain was so excruciating that he doubled over. We went to the hospital in a hurry. The ultrasound showed a large kidney stone, about 0.9mm in diameter. 

The doctor said to us: “For such a large kidney stone, medication will not be able to resolve the problem. He either has to go through surgery or lithotripsy treatment.” Since it was during the coronavirus pandemic, my son did not want to stay in the hospital. He asked for some medication and returned home for further observation. 

I told my son, “Why don’t you try to recite the phrases 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good'? So many people have benefited from it. As long as you sincerely say the phrases, your condition will improve.” He agreed and began to say the phrases daily. His back pain subsided gradually, and a few days later, it was gone completely!

My son returned to the hospital for another checkup one week later on May 26. The ultrasound indicated that his large kidney stone was gone!

Second Practitioner's Story: My Family Benefits from Practicing Falun Dafa

My mother used to have very poor health and had to take medication daily. One of her friends introduced Falun Dafa to her and she began reading the book Falun Gong

Just by reading the book, she became much healthier: her severe anemia improved, and her pale complexion turned rosy. We were all amazed. 

I had frequent nose bleeding since childhood. My mother was very worried and tried all sorts of treatments without any relief. I also had severe stomach pain, which could happen anytime without warning. If it happened at night, I would lose a night of sleep and the pain was excruciating. All my illnesses were gone after I started to practice Falun Dafa, too. 

My brother also had poor health since childhood. He was also inspired by our mother's health improvement and became a Falun Dafa practitioner as well. He went through a body purification process and became healthy afterwards.
