(Minghui.org) The main book of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun, guides people to cultivate based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. This book changes lives, including mine and my loved ones.

Power of Dafa: Zhuan Falun Changed My Life

I began to cultivate in Falun Dafa in 1997. I suffered from severe neurasthenia at the time, which countless medicines and remedies did not improve. Despite my passion for my job, I was forced to give up my teaching career. Instead, I spent my days suffering in a state of muddleheadedness.

The neurasthenia that had tormented me for more than 20 years then disappeared the day I started reading Zhuan Falun. I was amazed! My head became clear, my outlook brightened, and I started to savor the flavor of life. My various minor maladies, such as having cold feet, motion sickness, and skin diseases, also disappeared soon after, with no medical intervention.

Zhuan Falun taught me the true meaning of life – to return to one’s true home. It also raised my moral character. Once while walking home, I saw a wallet fall from the trouser pocket of a boy cycling ahead of me. I picked up the wallet, stopped the boy, and returned it to him. Before learning Dafa, I would have kept the wallet for myself.

I used to value money highly. During the 1980s, I once picked up 400 yuan and kept it in my pocket without looking for its owner. Looking back, I feel ashamed of how selfish I was back then. Dafa truly made me a better person.

I once ordered a custom-made cotton-padded coat from a tailor. Despite costing 70 to 80 yuan, the final product turned out too small for me. However, I did not quibble nor demand compensation. Instead, I clarified the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong to the tailor. In return she told me, “Falun Gong practitioners are truly good.”

From this trivial incident, the power of Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong) to change people’s hearts can be seen. Dafa changed me from a selfish person into a good person who thinks and acts for the sake of others.

Master said,

“Others benefit just by virtue of your practicing.” (Zhuan Falun, The Sixth Talk)

Besides myself, my family and relatives also benefited from my cultivating Falun Dafa.

Escaping Death

One of my relatives was diagnosed with a blood disorder. When doctors at both the hospital in Qingdao City and the local hospital were unable to restore her health, her family began making funeral preparations. Later, they visited the city I resided in, asking my husband for help in finding a good doctor.

Coincidentally, the son of my husband’s colleague happened to be the director of the relevant medical department, and his skills had gained a certain level of recognition. Initially, my relative’s husband confidently told us, “This director is very careful and serious. I have hope she can be cured.” However, my relative’s condition did not improve despite nine days of hospitalization. The doctor advised her to seek treatment in Beijing.

Her husband asked, “Will she really be cured in Beijing?” As a rural farming family, they could not afford to pay for her medical expenses. At that point, her hemoglobin levels were only 1.8 grams per deciliter. On seeing her condition, I advised my relative, “Study Falun Dafa. It is proven that Falun Dafa has miraculous effects on healing and fitness.” I told her how my health had improved after doing the exercises, and she agreed to try it. I then gave her a copy of Zhuan Falun.

Seven or eight days later, she called and told me that she was recovering well. Her hemoglobin levels had risen to eight grams per deciliter – close to normal levels. We visited her a month later. Sporting rosy cheeks and a healthier weight, she was essentially back to normal. She even personally cooked all the dishes we had for our meal. Within days, this terminally ill person had recovered her health, bringing happiness to her entire family.

Squashed Fingers Remained Whole

My two-year-old grandson was playing with his grandfather one day in the bedroom, when he started misbehaving. His grandfather punished him by pushing him out of the bedroom and closing the door. My grandson started crying outside the door. At the time, I was busy cooking in the kitchen and didn’t think too much about his tears, as I thought he was crying in response to his punishment, until I heard his desperate cries for me. I went over and saw that my grandson’s hand was stuck in a very narrow crack in the door.

I hurriedly pulled open the door and examined his hand, which was clearly squeezed flat. I was terrified, “Will this hand be disabled?” I picked up my grandson and walked before the portrait of Falun Dafa’s Master in our home. While begging Master to help my grandchild, I recited the two auspicious phrases, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” After a while, the flattened portion of his hand slowly began to rise.

At this juncture, my son and daughter-in-law returned home. They took my grandchild to the hospital, where an X-ray confirmed he had suffered no fractures in his hand. After returning from the hospital, my grandchild resumed playing as if nothing had happened.

The injury had been severe, so how could the child have recovered so fast? My grandson had listened to the recordings of Master’s lectures from a young age, and I taught him to recite poems from Hong Yin and Lunyu. He also recites “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day. Benevolent Master had taken away my grandchild’s pain.

Rapid Recovery From Second Stroke

My 82-year-old father-in-law had been sunbathing on the ground floor of our flat one afternoon with his friends, when a neighbor rushed up to tell us he had fallen over. My husband and I hurried down, only to see my father-in-law lying unconscious on the ground. A neighborhood doctor called for an ambulance, and neighbors helped us put him in the vehicle. At the hospital emergency room, doctors determined he had lost all feeling in his left foot and hand. Moreover, he had lost the ability to speak. When I advised him to recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” he nodded in agreement. I also begged Master to help him.

My father-in-law had all along been supportive of Falun Dafa and my cultivation efforts. He carefully picked up discarded truth clarification fliers on the streets and passed them to me. He used to suffer from low blood pressure. After listening to recordings of Master’s lectures, his blood pressure normalized. I was confident that Master would continue to protect my father-in-law.

My husband stayed behind to take care of him in the hospital, while I returned home to retrieve necessities like towels and washbasins. I also boiled a few eggs to take with me. I was back at the hospital within an hour, only to see my father-in-law standing on his feet, and holding onto his bed for support. I immediately thanked merciful Master!

When I visited them the following morning to bring breakfast, I found my husband alone in the ward. My father-in-law had gone to visit the toilet. As the toilet was located a distance away, I chided my husband for not accompanying the elderly man. My husband replied, “He insisted on going by himself. It’s fine.”

My father-in-law was discharged from the hospital on the third day. When I came to pick him up, I called a taxi to take us home. But my father-in-law refused to get in the car, insisting on walking the one-kilometer distance to our home. A frugal person by nature, he assured me he could walk on his own and we could save the five-yuan taxi fare. He was able to climb the stairs to our third-floor flat and even went out for some fun time in the afternoon.

By rights, he should have been paralyzed. Yet despite his advanced age, my father-in-law recovered within days of his second stroke, thanks to Master’s merciful help, and the mighty powers of Dafa!
