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.
