Lonely Elderly Man Changes Because of Falun Dafa

September 11, 2015 | By a practitioner in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, China

(Minghui.org) I often noticed a lonely elderly man several years ago who pushed a walker in a park in Shenyang City. He had lots of warts on his face, sores on his head and had an uncombed appearance.

I talked to him about Falun Dafa and the persecution by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) one day. He hated the CCP for withholding his pension and thus had to survive on a small welfare check from the local community. But, because he lived in Communist China, he worried he would be targeted by the CCP for his discontentment and therefore was reluctant to agree with what I said.

When I found out that he was a scholar, I recited several articles from Essentials for Further Advancement, a book by Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, “Wealth with Virtue,” “Enlightenment,” and “Remaking Mankind.” He said: “Your Master is so great! What he said is truly enlightening!”

When I saw him a year later, his appearance had changed. He looked radiant, he only had a few warts, his hair was combed, and his eyes sparkled.

He told me that fortunetellers had predicted that he would not live beyond the age of 72. He was 71 last year and not in good health. Yet, because he had met me he was still alive, so he thanked me.

I then told him that I was merely the messenger, and he returned to good health because of Dafa. I said that he benefited from reciting “Falun Dafa is good.”

Since then, I gave him a Falun Dafa calendar every year and every year he tells me that he had a peaceful year.

“My illnesses have disappeared since you gave me the calendars. Whenever I feel any discomfort, I just recite ‘Falun Dafa is good’ and ask Mr. Li for help, and the symptoms disappear.”

He is 77 now. He recites “Falun Dafa is good” daily. He loves the calendars. He says he feels rejuvenated and he might teach again should the opportunity arise.

Denmark: Public Support for Lawsuit Against Former Chinese Dictator in China

September 11, 2015 | By Minghui correspondent Shu Hui in Denmark

(Minghui.org) The recent wave of lawsuits against former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin has received support in Denmark. Practitioners held a signature drive on Copenhagen City Hall Square on August 29, 2015 to raise awareness about the lawsuits being filed.

Since May 2015 over 165,000 Falun Gong practitioners and their families from Mainland China and throughout the world have filed lawsuits against Jiang for launching and directing the persecution of Falun Gong.

According to Chinese law, any individual with knowledge of a crime can report it to the Chinese Supreme Procuratorate and Court.

Acting on this law, many people in the Asia-Pacific area have signed criminal report forms in the last two months, echoing the lawsuits.

Similar signature campaigns are also taking place in Europe. Many people in Denmark signed criminal report forms to support the movement to bring Jiang to justice.

Help Raising Awareness of Forced Organ Harvesting

A flight attendant from KLM Airline was shocked upon learning that the Chinese regime sanctions forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. “It’s intolerable, and must be stopped,” she said. “I’ll post this information on social media and tell all my colleagues about it.”

Two women and their colleagues signed criminal report forms and a petition prepared by DAFOH (Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting), calling for an end to the forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. One of them returned after a while. She said she wanted to get more people to support this signature drive. She took Falun Gong informational DVDs and other materials with her.

Supporting Bringing the Chief Culprit to Justice

An older man, whose feet were in pain and had plagued him for years, had been looking for a traditional oriental method to alleviate his pain. He was drawn by the practitioners’ peaceful and gentle exercise demonstration. A practitioner told him that Falun Dafa has benefited millions of people physically and mentally with its tenets of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and the five sets of exercises.

After he learned about Falun Dafa and the persecution that practitioners have been subjected to in China, and the recent tide of filing lawsuits against Jiang Zemin, the man signed the criminal report form to express his support for the lawsuit against Jiang.

Inner Mongolia: People from All Walks of Life Benefit from Falun Dafa (Part I)

September 11, 2015 | By practitioners from Inner Mongolia, China

(Minghui.org) Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa did not lecture in Inner Mongolia during his nationwide lecture tours from 1992 to 1994. Nonetheless this spiritual practice quickly spread to the cities and rural communities of Inner Mongolia by word of mouth.

Many people, including those from security and legal departments, listened to the facts about Dafa and ignored the government’s propaganda. They started to practice it, despite the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) suppression. Many people recited, “Falun Dafa is good” and benefited.

82-Year-Old Bedridden Woman Walks Again

Mrs. Wang (alias) is an 82-year-old woman who was partially paralyzed, and could walk only very short distances. Among other problems, it took her half-an-hour to undress and she could barely open her mouth, which made it difficult to eat.

Over time she became bedridden and she experienced more and more symptoms of her illnesses. She begged her children to give her sleeping pills because she wanted to die.

Her daughter, a Dafa practitioner, told her to listen to the lectures by the founder of Falun Dafa and Dafa stories, which she did.

She was greatly encouraged by the stories of how people recovered from illnesses because they recited the phrases “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She was able to sit up without help after she had recited these phrases all day long for 15 days. She then could walk without her walker soon after.

Because of her recovery, she started to practice Falun Dafa. By the time she turned 85, she no longer was bothered by any of her illnesses. Much of her gray hair turned black, her face had fewer wrinkles and she could take care of herself. She also shopped and cooked for her family.

Elderly Woman Works as Bricklayer

A lady who is now in her 60s used to smoke and drink, and therefore was in poor health. She had seen a number of doctors and took a lot of medication, but did not get better. She looked pale, and her skin was unhealthily. In her 30s, she looked like a 60-year-old.

Since she now practices Dafa she works as a bricklayer at construction sites. She even works faster and is more energetic than her male co-workers and thus earns more. After work she is not tired and practices the Falun Dafa exercises and studies Dafa books. She is admired by her co-workers.

A co-worker in his 40s was surprised when he learned that she was close to 60-years- old and yet she still worked as a bricklayer. She told him that she looked younger because she practices Falun Dafa, a cultivation way of the Buddha school which cultivates the body and mind. He also wanted to practice Dafa.

She was in a car accident in September 2011. She was on the back of her husband’s motorcycle when a truck hit them. They were thrown quite a distance and their motorcycle was totaled.

The truck driver blamed them for the accident, but another truck driver told him not to complain since the accident was his fault and to take the couple to the hospital. The driver knew he was in the wrong and helped the practitioner stand up.

“I am all right. I will not blackmail you. I practice Falun Dafa. I am all right,” said the practitioner.

Harmonious Family Life

Practitioner Xinxin was illegally sentenced to forced labor. During her detention, her husband began to drink, gamble and had extramarital affairs.

After she was released, Xinxin took care of her mother-in-law and treated her husband kindly. Her mother-in-law told everyone that she was like her own daughter and looked after her very well.

She took good care of her husband and did not badmouth him while their son did not respect him because of his alcohol problem. She asked her son to understand that his father worked hard and was under a lot of social pressure. She said that his father used to be kind, but was influenced by the current bad social environment.

Every time when her husband came home drunk, he beat her for no reason. She always reminded herself that she would not swear back or hit back and would treat him kindly and with compassion. Regardless of whatever he did to her, she still took good care of him.

Gradually, her husband changed and started to practice Falun Dafa. He changed into a good person. After her mother-in-law and her son saw the changes in him they also started to practice Falun Dafa, and so did the rest of their family members.

Her family follows the Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and they live a harmonious life.
