I am 51 years old. I live in Dalahaishang Village of Bu'erhan Tuzhen Town,Baotou City’s Kun District, Inner Mongolia. After giving birth to my child in 1998, I have repeatedly been plagued by gynecological inflammation. In the first lunar month of 2001, I went to the town to enjoy the lanterns with Liu Erli from the same village and on the way I complained about my illness to her all the time. She thought it was not hard to cure illnesses, she said, “It is not a big deal. I was born with congenital heart disease, but since I started to practice Falun Gong, I have never been plagued by heart problms anymore. What magic!” I also wanted to try such a magic practice method, so I asked her whether she could help me to practice Falun Gong. The warm-hearted Erli agreed and gave me the book “Turning the Law Wheel”. After that, I started to follow her in practicing Falun Gong. According to her, learning Master's scriptures could eliminate illnesses and help followers maintain physical fitness. More importantly, it helped “remove evil” and “help people enter a new level”. I asked her about “removing evil” and “entering a new level.” She said that “illnesses” referred to the evil from the past or present. Practicing Falun Gong helped “remove evil” and laid good foundations for one’s future life. The goodness could maintain peace for the family, help people achieve completion and enter heaven. I was fascinated by such a universal principle. Just like a guy hunting treasures, I actively practiced Dafa and learnt the scripture. As I yearned for the “flying to heaven” written in the book, I regarded the master as the “Lord Buddha” and “Turning the Law Wheel” as the virtuous law. I took “Falun Dafa” as a magic cure for illness and a chance to change my life.
Gradually, Falun Gong occupied all of my life.My husband complained that I did not care about him and he had not enjoyed sex for a long time. However, the master said that sex would make people inferior. Dafa followers should not even think of sex. How could I, a follower who pursued advances, still have sex life? I attempted to persuade my husband that “when I achieve completion, I will bring "blessings" to the family. Please just be patient!”
Liu Erli’s death on May 19th, 2003 touched me deeply. She was at home when she had a heart attack. She refused to be sent to the hospital, so she died on the futon at only 46 years old. She was more "sophisticated" than me in terms of practicing Falun Gong. I always thought she practiced well, certainly she was more “superior”. How could such a "hardworking" follower die? I couldn’t quite understand whether the master helped people to reach completion and go to heaven, or just harmed them and led them to death. I thought seriously about what Falun Gong had brought to me. Since I practiced Falun Gong, my child starved and my husband lost his temper. Is that how “one practices while the whole family benefits”?
Erli’s story made me realize that I needed to go to the hospital to check my physical health. I wanted to see the effect of the magic in my body from practicing Falun Gong during the past years. Since practicing it, I had not been to the hospital for three years. I strictly followed the guidance of the master, I took no medicines or injections, and didn’t go to the hospital when I was sick. To cure my sickness, I read scripture all the time. I thought, with the help from master, I must be healthy enough. However, the result turned out to be that my gynecological disease was not cured, and I was diagnosed with parostealgl and tumor and cirrhosis.
The medical examination report shocked me and aroused my husband’s anger. After several seconds, he said: “You, the Dafa follower, do not need to lean on me! Just lean on your master!” I was completely disappointed at Falun Gong. Fortunately, it was not too late. I still have my family! I am still alive!
Since then, I never mentioned Falun Gong any more. During the Tomb Sweeping Festival this year, my husband and I went to hold a memorial ceremony for my mother- and father-in-law. In front of the tomb, I burnt the book of “Turning the Law Wheel”. If Erli’s soul were in the heaven, she probably didn’t want to see this book anymore, either.
