I Wouldn't Be Here Today Without Dafa
November 26, 2015 | By Jinglian, a Falun Dafa practitioner in China
(Minghui.org) I developed many health problems through exposure to hazardous materials for almost 10 years at my electroplating job. When I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996 the toxins in my body were cleaned out. I have been perfectly healthy for the last 18 years. Falun Dafa also taught me how to be a good person. I feel like I was reborn, with a brand new life.
My whole body used to suffer from the poisoning. I couldn't eat anything with oil in it. I suffered diarrhea and stomach pain so frequently that I had to eat rice congee for almost every meal. I had high blood pressure, heart disease, uterine disease, a skin disorder and chronic throat problems. I passed out often.
No medicine could help me. The only way to control my symptoms was with globulin injections. I quit my job but my health still worsened. My face looked dark and spotty. My black hair turned completely gray in my forties. I had been mistaken as my husband's mother. Every day was a struggle for me. I lost hope.
June 13, 1996 was the turning point in my life. One of my husband's friends told me about a qigong exercise lecture series, and suggested I try it. I had been deeply influenced by atheism, and disbelieved him as soon as he mentioned Buddha. But he said many retired party officials were going to the video playback of this lecture series, including many people I knew. I decided to try it out of curiosity.
It happened to be the second lecture of the series by the founder of Falun Gong, Master Li Hongzhi. After watching the recording I thought it was great! It wasn't superstition! As soon as the second lecture finished playing, I asked my husband's friend to buy a Falun Gong book for me. He delivered a book to me the next morning. I finished reading it the same day. I felt it was exactly what I had been looking for. I started going to a group exercise site in the mornings to learn Falun Gong.
Only three or four days after I started doing the exercises my body felt light. I used to be exhausted climbing the stairs. Now I felt I almost flew up stairs. My skin hasn't broken out since. I no longer needed any medicine or injections. All of my diseases gradually disappeared as I continued to study the book and do the exercises. It is truly the best science in the world!
Though I'm 64 years old now, I feel as energetic as I was in my twenties. I can carry a big bag of rice to the fourth floor with ease. When my former colleagues saw me, they said I looked much better than 30 years ago. About one-third of my gray hair has turned dark. It's something modern science can't accomplish!
I wouldn't be here today without Dafa. Thank you, Master, for giving me a new life and teaching me to follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance! Falun Dafa is great!
