Osteoporosis Made Me Bedridden; Falun Gong Gave Me A Second Life

A Dafa Practitioner in China

PureInsight | November 4, 2002

To All Kindhearted, Pre-Destined People,


I am a Falun Gong practitioner who used to work for a company in Hebei Province, China until I was fired from my job for practicing Falun Gong. Even though I am perfectly sane, the police forced me into a psychiatric institution for practicing Falun Gong. I have the courage to exercise my freedom of speech as guaranteed by the Chinese Constitution. I was forced to serve jail time four times for exercising this right. Eventually I was sentenced to serve time in a forced labor camp. Despite of all of these ordeals, I have persisted in my Falun Dafa cultivation. You must be curious as to why I am so determined to cultivate Falun Dafa. I will share my cultivation story with you.

My History of Osteoporosis prior to Practicing Falun Gong

I had suffered from severe osteoporosis since I was very young and became too weak to withstand even a gust of wind. Eventually I couldn't bear any weight on my shoulders, hold on to anything heavy, or even walk. I became bedridden, sleeping most of my days. When I occasionally left the bed, I would collapse easily. At the age of thirty I was forced to leave my job and began to rely on a private nurse to take care of me. I had visited all of the well-known hospitals in Tianjin, Beijing and Shi Jiazhuang (the capital of Hebei Province). With tears in my heart, I begged all the famous doctors I could visit for a cure and spent all money I could afford, amounting to almost thirty thousand Chinese Yuan, in one year right before I obtained the Fa. (Please note: the average monthly income in China is 500 Yuan). But none of the medical treatments were able to restore my health. I asked myself constantly, "Is there anyone in the world that can cure my osteoporosis?" Finally I lost confidence in the medical treatments. From that point on, I had felt as though I had become a beggar, begging for mercy in my daily life.

Spring Finally Visited Me, the Withered Tree

In 1997, I borrowed Teacher's Nine Days of Lectures in Guangzhou, China, from my neighbor by chance. As soon as I began to listen to the lectures my body started to be purified. I immediately started to vomit, had incessant diarrhea and had continuous high fever. From listening to the lectures I realized that those were normal symptoms of a body purification process. I endured all the discomfort for three days painfully yet joyously. Three days later, a miracle happened --- my osteoporosis disappeared and I have been a healthy person ever since.

Since I started Falun Gong practice five years ago, my medical expenses have amounted to nothing, not even a penny. I became perfectly healthy and I continued to improve my xinxing (mind/moral character). In each and every one of Teacher's books, he requires us to be a good person, treat others kindly and be considerate of others at all times. He also asked us to search ourselves during times of conflict for areas of improvement. For the past five years I have followed Teacher's words and tried my best to improve myself constantly. Because of the cultivation in Falun Dafa, I found my heart broader and broader, and my mind relaxed, happy and calm. Gradually, I found that I no longer bickered with others, I no longer caused grief to others, and I no longer fight with others over personal benefit. On the contrary, I have been given numerous good and beautiful rewards. My parents in-law have been treating me like their own daughter, and I have been looking after them like my own parents. My neighbors have been treating me like their own "sister." During those four times when I was put into jail, my neighbors cared for and looked after my family for me, including my children.

I know that I have Dafa to thank for all of these. In Fa study, I improved myself and got rid of my attachments. I was rewarded with a healthy body and the purified mind.

In the past three years of persecution against Falun Gong since 1999, I was repeatedly arrested and released. I had to spend the past three Chinese New Year celebrations in jail. My family and I had to endure a lot of hardships and experience many tribulations, but I never regretted my choice, because I have found the truth of my life. Falun Dafa gave me a second life, and brought me to the right path.

Best Wishes for an Opportunity for Your Salvation

All kindhearted, pre-destined people! This is a call from the bottom of my heart. In order to clear Teacher's name, to clear Dafa's name, and to wake up your sleeping soul, I am willing to put my life aside. I truly hope that all of you who have a pre-destined relationship with me would see that gods and Buddhas do exist in the universe. Through my cultivation in Falun Dafa, I see with my own eyes merciful Buddhas and also the destructive evils in the cosmos. I can clearly discern higher beings who try to save me from those evil beings who try to misguide me. These years, people are afflicted with all kinds of strange, difficult and complicated illnesses, caused by the evil in other dimensions. The degenerate moral standards in human society also contribute substantially to the recent disasters, tribulations and illnesses.

Master Li broadly spreads the Fa principles of the cosmos in order to rectify all impure matters in the universe, and to wake up people's righteous thoughts and consciences. Only when people rectify themselves with Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance will they be able to eliminate disasters and tribulations. The Buddha is compassionate! Dafa is all-encompassing! In the ultimate battle between good and evil, you need only to keep in mind that Falun Dafa is good, to guard your conscience, to be a good person, and not to persecute Dafa practitioners. Then you will have a beautiful future. Using a sweet pear as an analogy for Falun Dafa, "I have tasted the pear and I know the sweetness of the fruit." Perhaps you are unaware of its sweetness because you haven't tried the pear yet. But I implore you, with my whole heart, not to throw away this sweet fruit of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, because this is truly the final call for you at this final stage. Please accept our call to Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, for the sake of yourself and your family.

I would like to share with you a passage from Master Li's article, titled "Further Comments on Superstition" in Essentials for Further Advancement II. I hope Teacher's words will inspire you to make a wise choice:

"Mankind! Awaken! The vows of Gods in history are being fulfilled. The Dafa is judging all beings. What path a person takes in life is his own choosing. One thought a person has might determine his future. Treasure and cherish it: the cosmos's Fa-principles are right in front of you."

I hope that all kind-hearted, pre-destined people who read this letter will be able to discern good from evil. If you are a leader or a manager in your organization, I encourage you to conduct yourself at work in accordance with the laws of heaven. Please speak a word of justice for Falun Gong! Try everything in your power to rescue Dafa practitioners from jail, and do not hinder Dafa practitioners from clarifying the truth about Falun Gong! Gods and Buddhas will surely notice your support and kindness toward Dafa practitioners, and you will be rewarded with a beautiful future.
