March 18, 2016 | By a Dafa practitioner in Fujian Province, China
(Minghui.org) Through word of mouth, Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) spread rapidly throughout the city of Ningde in Fujian Province in the latter half of 1996. Falun Gong’s amazing ability to restore health and improve a person’s moral standard attracted many eager learners.
Experiencing the Extraordinariness of Falun Gong
Ms. Jin Liyan, an elderly lady, suffered from severe liver cirrhosis, chronic gastritis and frequent heart palpitations. These conditions left her weak and in constant pain.
When she heard about Falun Gong, she immediately decided, “Wherever this practice is being taught, I will definitely go and attend.” This simple thought brought about an unexpected change. The previously weak and sickly lady suddenly was able to walk long distances without tiring.
She located a Falun Gong practice site in January 1999. She then obtained Zhuan Falun, the book which contains the teachings of Falun Gong. However as an illiterate person, it seemed impossible for her to read that book within her lifetime. She remained undaunted and decided, “I will read this book.” It did not take long for her to recognize the words in the book.
Within a few days of practicing the exercises, she had recovered from her illnesses and stopped taking all medication. Full of energy, she is now able to walk long distances without tiring. She benefited greatly from practicing Falun Gong.
Perfect Healing of Severe Leg Tuberculosis
Ms. Fengyue, a middle aged lady, underwent surgery in March 2010 at a Fuzhou hospital for leg pain. The surgery failed to relieve her pain, and moreover caused her condition to worsen. Her leg muscles began to atrophy, and any physical movement brought pain. Over time, her condition deteriorated and doctors were left with no other option than to administer large doses of painkillers.
Specialists at different hospitals gave her the same diagnosis, “You have severe joint tuberculosis, resulting in decalcification and necrosis of your knee bone.”
The doctors prescribed a tuberculosis treatment, and suggested that she undergo a knee replacement surgery, which could cost up to eight million yuan.
“You are only 40 years old,” said one of the doctors. “Artificial joints only last about 10 years. If you live up to 80 years, can you imagine the number of joint replacement operations you would have to undergo?”
She met a Falun Gong practitioner in 2013 who told her to recite the phrases, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good!”
“You will benefit as long as you recite these two phrases constantly and sincerely,” said the practitioner. “Falun Gong brings to the public high level Buddha School teachings. As long as you are truly sincere, Buddha will save you.”
When they met again, the practitioner told her the facts behind the unlawful persecution of Falun Gong, before giving her Zhuan Falun, and teaching her the exercise movements. As she read the book and practiced the exercises, her health improved and one day she realized that she had become a healthy person.
Cured of Hypertension and Diabetes
A 63-year-old lady suffered from various illnesses, including insomnia, hypertension and diabetes. To cure her worsening condition, her family members took her to medical specialists, but to no avail. Moreover, the increasing burden of her medical fees became a source of dispute between her husband and children.
At the height of her desperation, she met a friend who practiced Falun Gong. This friend encouraged her to read Zhuan Falun, and gave her an MP3 player containing the lectures given by Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong. Filled with hope, this elderly lady read the book, listened to the lectures and did the exercises daily. Gradually, her quality of sleep and mental outlook began to improve.
Skeptical of her outwardly improved health, her family insisted that she visit the hospital for a thorough examination. To their amazement, the medical report confirmed that she no longer suffered her chronic hypertension and diabetes. Filled with gratitude, this lady has devoted the rest of her life to practicing Falun Gong.
Steadfast Faith in Falun Gong
Ms. Pan Feiliu once suffered from severe insomnia and chronic severe fatigue. She consulted many doctors and took large amounts of medication. However, her efforts were in vain.
She met someone by chance in 1998 who gave her Zhuan Falun. She read the Falun Gong teachings, did the exercises and began to experience a gradual improvement in her physical condition. Not only did her body feel refreshingly lighter, but her mental character also underwent a major change. She became more compassionate and tolerant towards others. This improvement in body and mind cemented her conviction to practice Falun Gong.
Ms. Pan and several Falun Gong practitioners went to Beijing in July 2000 to appeal for fairer treatment of Falun Gong and its practitioners. The authorities ignored her appeal, and instead arrested and imprisoned her for three-and-a-half years.
She was tortured with methods such as being forced to stand for long hours without moving, to sleep deprivation and physical abuse. Psychotropic drugs were mixed into her food, and she suffered from frequent delirium, confusion and loss of mental control. The constant torture caused Ms. Pan’s weight to plummet from a 130 to a mere 70 pounds. Only when she was on the verge of death did the authorities agree to release her into the care of her family.
After her release from prison, Ms. Pan diligently studied the teachings of Falun Gong and did the exercises. With her strong faith, she quickly recovered in body and mind.
Perfect Health and Harmonious Family Life
Ms. Liu Ruozhen started to practice Falun Gong in 1998. Within a few months, her joint rheumatism, stomach problems and other health issues disappeared. Since then, 17 years have passed, and she remains in perfect health and full of vitality.
“Falun Gong is amazing,” she said. “It does not differentiate between the rich and poor, and accepts all people as long as one has the heart to cultivate. As a cultivator, I have greatly benefited and feel blessed.”
Before she started to practice Falun Gong, she had a bad temper and would often pick fights with her colleagues and parents-in-law. After practicing Falun Gong, she followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in her daily life. She became kind and considerate toward others. As a result, her relationships with her colleagues, husband and parents-in-law became very harmonious.
Her son also benefited from his mother’s practice of Falun Gong. Her son often fell ill and would come down with a high fever in the middle of the night. As the family lived in a rural area with poor medical facilities, locating a doctor was impossible at the late hours of the night. Ms. Liu resorted to practicing the Falun Gong exercises beside her son during those nights. His fever was gone within no time.
Additionally, she noticed improvement in her son’s grades after she became a practitioner. From an initial high school ranking of 400, he went to the top of his class by the third year of high school and was admitted to a prestigious university.
For Ms. Liu, the amazing power of Falun Gong cured her illness, changed her outlook on life, improved her interpersonal and family relationships, and helped her son. This is truly a practice that has beneficial effects for practitioners and their families!
