I am an 80-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner. Before practicing Dafa, I suffered from various illnesses, such as hepatitis, gastric ulcer, and prostatitis. My family was reduced to destitution due to the cost of my treatment. My illnesses also made me look prematurely old. I was fortunate enough to obtain Dafa, and in less than six months of practice, all of my illness symptoms disappeared.
Because I am healthy, I can help my family do work. Sometimes, I would carry 50 pounds of rice up to the 5th floor while reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” When meeting former high school classmates, many said: “The sick man is a strong man today!” I would always answer: “Master is great! Dafa is great!”
Walking Out of Prison With Dignity
After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Jiang’s rogue regime launched the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999, I was arrested and detained. In summer, the crackling sound of driving away mosquitoes went on all night, but it had nothing to do with me. I could sleep peacefully, and everyone in the cell was surprised. I knew that it was Master who protected and encouraged me.
I was later transferred to a prison. Because I didn’t cooperate with the guards and refused to renounce my faith, I was confined to a damp and smelly room. Because of doing the Dafa exercises, I was handcuffed under a basketball hoop all night long several times. The guards adopted every possible means to force me to give up Dafa and get a reward. Every time, at the end of one of these conversations, I was told to write a repentance statement. I would always say in my heart: “You are dreaming!”
During those horrific days, under Master’s protection, I relied on my faith and recited Dafa lectures and poems, including On Dafa, “Determination,” and “Towards Consummation.” I was finally released and walked out of the prison with dignity.
Benefiting from Dafa
After being released from prison, my family saw that I was weak and ordered a supply of milk for me, one bottle per day. I thought: “With regular practice of Dafa, my body will definitely recover quickly, so I don’t want to increase the financial burden on my family.”
“Almost all the matter that constitutes every space of our universe can be found in this gong.” (“Lecture Three”, Zhuan Falun)
Dafa disciples can only validate the Fa, not any substance. So I drank only one bottle of milk and canceled the order. My body recovered quickly after doing the exercises. My family members, relatives, and friends witnessed the preciousness of practicing Dafa.
My wife is my age, and she also practices Falun Dafa. She has never been to school and is illiterate. She is eager to study the Fa and learn from others. Now she can read Zhuan Falun. She has persevered through sickness karma several times. There are very few wrinkles on her face and no age spots.
My son has listened to Master’s Fa teachings, and he believes in Master and Dafa in the face of adversity. After I was arrested, he helped hide my Dafa books. When I was imprisoned, he came to visit me many times and encouraged me not to give up my cultivation. His business has been booming.
On one occasion, a customer overpaid him by 6,000 yuan, and he returned it in full. The customer was very moved and recommended my son to others. Because of doing fair and honest business, his income is considerable. He built a large house in the city, which was unthinkable in the past.
My second grandson listened to Dafa practitioners read Zhuan Falun during our group Fa study in my home before he attended school. He was able to read On Dafa and also taught it to his grandma word by word. In both his first and second year of middle school, he received scholarships of 600 yuan. He was admitted to a university, and after graduation, he got a job he liked through a campus recruitment event.
My great-grandchildren also have a predestined relationship with Dafa, especially my second great-grandson. When he comes to our home, he would first pay respect before Master’s photo and recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Thank you Master, thank you Dafa!” He is now in kindergarten, and all his teachers like him.
Master has given us so much. I can’t repay Him, but can only cultivate more diligently.
