[] At about 11:00 a.m. on August 10, as I was parking my car at the flourishing Eastern Market parking lot, I backed into the car of a Western lady, making a dent about the size of the palm of my hand at the rear of her car. I immediately told her, "I am very sorry to have bumped into your car. It is my mistake, but I am in a hurry to go to work and I cannot wait. There is no need to contact the insurance company. I will pay for the damage. Please trust me. I am a Falun Gong practitioner and I cultivate 'Zhen, Shan and Ren' (truthfulness, compassion and forbearance) and would not tell a lie." The car owner had also come to buy things to make a meal and to save time accepted my suggestion. As she was writing down the particulars of my driving license, I gave printed Dafa material to her as well. I turned to the page where there were diagrams of the exercises and the three words "Zhen, Shan, Ren" for her to see. I gave her a brief explanation of the goodness of Falun Dafa and its situation all over the whole world. Then I quickly went into the shop to purchase what I needed.

After selecting the things I needed and was about to pay for them, the lady noticed me standing next to the cashier. She insisted that I follow her to look at her car. At that instant, I thought that [probably] there was more damage to her car that had not been detected earlier and I said to her, "No problem, no need to look at it; please trust a person who practices Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. I will pay for all the damage. My mother is hard of hearing and does not understand English. If you cannot contact me by phone, please mail the bill to me, and I will send you a check immediately."

Unexpectedly, that lady insisted that I have a look at her car. I could only put down all the things in my hands and follow her to the parking lot. It was a great surprise for me to see the dent had disappeared and there were only a few fingerprints where her fingers had stroked across where the dent had been. They had been made by the lady who did not believe that the dent was gone and had stroked her fingers across it to satisfy herself that it was so! The lady was quite excited, as what happened was beyond belief. It was obvious there had been a dent there but how did the dent disappear and the car become as it was before the accident? We hugged each other and shook hands. I said to her, "I hope you will read the material in your hand carefully." She replied, "I will read it very carefully! Please rest assured, you don't need to pay me anything, and both of us are safe."

As I looked back over the incident, I kept insisting that I was a Dafa practitioner and I practice Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. I did not contest the cause of the accident but straightaway handed the Dafa material to her. That pure and sincere thought at that instant produced the miracle. Perhaps that lady had the predestined relationship to understand Dafa.
