Obtaining the Fa
There’s an old saying; “If one escaped from death during a great catastrophe, blessings will follow.” I was just like that. When I was a kid I was so naughty I climbed everything up and down, caught cicadas and locusts, enjoyed playing in mud and water. I was not like a girl at all. Once, I fell into deep water but I didn’t drown. On another occasion I ate poison by mistake but I didn’t die, (I would have died if the ambulance had arrived 10 minutes later). My grandma said in the future I would be blessed.
Indeed, I was a lucky one among sentient beings. The blessing was brought by benevolent Master and Falun Dafa. Among fellow practitioners in the China, I was lucky to see Master in person. At that time Master held a class at a county in Shandong province. Master utilized his free time to teach the Fa to companies nearby.
My mother-in-law and I had practiced many different Qigong. We went to every Qigong seminar. As a result our bodies were full of black material. At that time we didn’t know Falun Dafa was the Fa of the universe. We just thought about learning something from it. Unexpectedly, we met the true Buddha. We read Falun Gong. We didn’t realize the predestined relationship was the opportunity of ages. Over ten years passed, I still vividly remembered Master’s voice and majestic figure.
“I think that those who can listen to my lectures in person, I would say, honestly... you will realize in the future that this period of time is extremely precious. Of course, we believe in predestined relationship. Everyone sits here all because of a predestined relationship.”(Zhuan Falun, Lecture One: “Genuinely Guiding People Toward High Levels”)
After July 20, 1999, the whole of China was messed up by the gangster, Jiang Zemin. The media throughout the country slandered Falun Gong. Falun Dafa disciples were arrested and tortured. My parents were arrested and their home was raided. The “610 Office” took away all our video tapes and books of Master’s lectures. They forced me to write a “letter of guarantee” not to practice Falun Gong for my parents. They also forced me pay 4000 Yuan before they released my parents. (Here I wanted to declare seriously that the so-called “guarantee” I wrote is invalid). Like many other Chinese people, I was lost in the lies promoted by the media. Moreover, because my family member passed away, my spirit was very low.
When my father gave me a brand new Zhuan Falun, I turned the cover and saw Master’s benevolent smile. I suddenly burst into tears. “Master, I shall study the Fa well and return home to heaven with you.” Although I already started to cultivate, I didn’t know how to cultivate diligently.
I didn’t study the Fa very often; neither did I do the exercises much. As a result, I wasted several years. In 2003, my mother passed away. She couldn’t let go of her illness, although she did the exercises. I was in deep sorrow. However it woke me up. I could not slack off like before. I wanted to be a true Dafa practitioner. I started to carefully study Zhuan Falun and all the lectures with my father. I wanted to make up for lost time.
I seized all available time to cultivate solidly. Every day I sent righteous thoughts on time. I clarified the truth and asked people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as long as the situation permitted. At the beginning, I was afraid to clarify the truth; later I let go of the fear and was able to clarify the truth by not following ordinary people’s attachments. Cultivation was hard. One needed to treat oneself as a true cultivator, let go of fame and personal interests, let go of attachments and many other human notions. I remembered the first time while my karma was eliminated. I had fever and pain all over my body. I took two days off and kept listening to Master’s lectures.
My family was afraid that the sickness might get worse so they asked me to take medicine. I said I was fine and I took the opportunity to explain them what Falun Dafa is. I told them this was a small test and I would get well very soon. I thanked Master for eliminating my karma. The next day I was able to eat and drink and I got back to normal very soon. Later, when I went through other sickness karma, my family no longer asked me to go to the hospital. They knew that I was eliminating karma.
One time, my whole family except for me caught cold and had fever. Before that, every several months I would always take some sick days off. Now I no longer took sick days off. In the past, when my company asked for nomination for the employee of the year, I always thought I should win the title. Now I give the title away to others. I followed Master’s requirements to be a true cultivator. All my previous sicknesses such as headache and gynaecopathia were gone. I was full of energy. Although I am fifty years old, my face glowed with rosy color without any spots. Every day I slept only five or six hours without a nap. Many people at my age had presbyopia while I was able to read words of different font sizes. My family witnessed the miracles that occurred to me. I also brought them truth clarifying materials. Gradually they all knew the truth and quit the CCP. Among them ,two obtained the Fa and many have been blessed.
After July 20, 1999, my child’s uncle didn’t believe the Chinese government’s slanders about Falun Gong. Instead, he managed to find Zhuan Falun and read very carefully from cover to cover. Then he said: “The Chinese Communist Party always lies. The book Zhuan Falun didn’t say anything about ‘don’t take medicine.’ Whoever believes the CCP is stupid.” He liked to read the truth clarifying materials. As a result, although he’s almost sixty years old, his white hair turned black. A bump on his skin disappeared without notice.
My sister and her friend were hit by a car while crossing the road. Her friend died immediately. My sister survived because she had quit the CCP.
My daughter didn’t go to high school. She took the national college test several years ago. Before she went into the examination room, I asked her to recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance are good.” She scored 40 points more than the undergraduate minimum qualification requirement. She was admitted to an excellent university. In the university, she continued to study very well and earned a scholarship.
I had a co-worker in her thirties who couldn’t get pregnant. I clarified the truth to her and gave her a Falun talisman. Both she and her husband quit the CCP. Three months later, she became pregnant. Her child is now four years old.
One of my family members had a car accident two years ago. He had multiple pelvic fractures. The doctor said surgery would cost at least 30,000 Yuan, excluding the hospitalization fee. We discussed this and decided to use modern treatment, bandage, and plaster. He was hospitalized for only one week. I played Master’s lectures for him. Half a year later, when he was able to stand up, and he practiced the first exercise. He was fully recovered one year later.
My younger sister had breast cancer ten years ago. She had a major surgery and then she became very weak. Two years ago, her cancer recurred. I already helped her and her family to quit the CCP. So she was very calm when she was diagnosed with cancer again. She said she wanted to learn the Falun Gong exercises. So I taught her the five sets of exercise and also brought her a copy of Zhuan Falun. I reminded her several times to read the book. After she was discharged from the hospital, her husband told me she recovered well. When she did the exercises, she felt the energy channel between her head and feet was unblocked. She felt none of the symptoms like after her first surgery. At that time she had abdominal distension.
Falun Gong is so great. Many miracles happened to my family and friends. We all witnessed the wonder and magnificence of Dafa and are bathed in the grace of Buddha.
There are many obstacles on the path of cultivation. I shall work hard to do the three things. I must never be unworthy of Master’s expectations.
