“Practice Shakes the Entire Universe, Buddha Light Saves Sentient Beings ”
(Clearwisdom.net) It has been 19 years since Teacher taught Falun Dafa in China, but Teacher's tall and powerful image still often flashes in front of me. When I read Zhuan Falun every day, Teacher's voice reverberates next to my ear, and his affable face is unforgettable. I wrote down this happy memory to share with fellow practitioners, and give thanks for Teacher's graciousness.
Before I became a Falun Dafa practitioner, I was engaged in turbo generator repair. During a turboset's overhaul work in 1977, the fuel tank of the turboset caught fire, and caused me to receive a cranial and brain injury. During the next 17 years, I sought treatments from experts and doctors at famous hospitals, but it was ineffective; the headaches were really bad, and caused me to lose consciousness if I was not treated promptly. Therefore my factory leaders were very worried, spending tens of thousands of yuan to treat me, but it did not relieve my pain. As I could not work normally, I had no choice but to retire at the age of 40 in 1993.
At the beginning of 1994, Teacher came to my city to give lectures, and my wife attended. I opposed her doing so in the beginning, as she had attended many qigong classes, and spent a lot of money. However, after learning Falun Gong for 10 days, she was a totally different person. Prior to that, she had a protrusion of the lumbar intervertebral discs, and struggled in walking, but she could ride a bicycle after practicing Falun Gong, which piqued my curiosity. It had to be my fate that I attended Teacher's 6th and 7th classes in Changchun, from May 1st to August 1994. During the class, Teacher said just like in Zhuan Falun:
“It is because their brains have illnesses that need to be treated. One will be unable to stand it if one’s brain is worked on. Therefore, one must be put into a state of anesthesia or become unconscious.”
During the nine day class, I slept every day, but I heard every word. What was more mysterious, when Teacher cleaned up bodies for practitioners on the scene, along with Teacher waving his hands, while I stamped my foot, Falun revolved around my forehead, spun around my head like a windmill and then stopped at my forehead. From that day on, my 17-year long stubborn headache vanished miraculously and completely! After the class, I returned to my workplace, and told the leaders what had happened. Every one of them were happy for me, and told me to attend the classes, and the factory would pay for the class fees and travel expenses.
Now, another 17 years have passed. In these 17 years, I have saved a lot of medical costs for the factory, and my headache has gone away completely. After July 20, 1999, my factory manager criticised me at a meeting, saying that he was “tolerating” my practicing Falun Gong. Afterwards, I asked the manager why he did not speak the truth, and why he did not say that I had saved so much for the factory? The manager said he had no choice, because he was not allowed to tell the truth!
After Teacher cleaned up my body, I felt my whole body relax, and walked energetically, with improvement every day. From the second day of the class on, I began to spit out phlegm, and felt my chest was comfortable and smooth, one day after another. I remembered what Teacher said in the third class, “Everybody is thinking, and asking who I am, then I will soon open the cover to let you see, only for one minute.” While Teacher was giving the lecture, he asked us to look. I looked towards Teacher from the eighth row. I saw an incomparably giant golden Buddha standing in front of me. I could not see the top, yet could only see Buddha's toes from a horizontal angle. I really could not believe my eyes, I subconsciously hit myself, wanting to confirm that this was truly what I saw. I saw the Buddha, one minute passed, and the room became quiet. However my thoughts could not calm down. I only read about or saw Buddhas in novels and movies, but who had really seen a Buddha? I have never heard of anyone, but on this day I did. I did see the real Buddha, Teacher is the real Buddha! Teacher, giving lectures on the stage, is actually teaching us the Fa; isn't this saving people? I was saved! I felt so fortunate and happy to be bathed in the Buddha Fa and Buddha's light.
From July 20, 1999 to the present, the CCP has suppressed Falun Dafa practitioners for no reason, and fabricated lies to slander Dafa and Teacher, but I always believed Teacher is the Buddha who came down to save all sentient beings.
After the class on the 3rd day, I asked a Changchun practitioner to take me to the best banner shop. I wanted to make the biggest and best silk banner, to express my respect and gratitude to Teacher, appreciation towards Falun Gong, and respect for the Buddha law. The shop assistant asked me what to write, I gave him what I drew: “Practice Shakes the Entire Universe, Buddha Light Saves Sentient Beings”, he asked me, why would I write this? I shared my personal experience with him. At the class honours day in Changchun, I carried the banner, which was taller than me, walked up to Teacher, deeply bowed, and gave it to Teacher together with my best wishes. Teacher accepted the banner, put it down and shook hands with me. I felt a warm current flow through my entire body. I did not know what to say. I just looked at Teacher, and I was again bathed in Buddha's light.
Seventeen years have passed. Whenever I recall the happy scene of respectfully listening to Teacher's lectures, I feel that I am the happiest person in the world. Teacher has given me a ladder to heaven. Dafa and Teacher have saved me, and Teacher has given me everything. How can I forget such a merciful Teacher and Dafa!
From July 20, 1999 to the present, along with the persecution of Dafa practitioners, I further see clearly the CCP's evil nature. I deeply believe in Dafa and Teacher. No matter how the CCP fabricates lies about Dafa and Teacher, it cannot shake my own and all Dafa practitioners' firm faith in Teacher and Dafa! This is also a genuine practitioner's pledge to Teacher.
