Dong Ngyuen is a retired Vietnamese Chinese Physician living in Houston, Texas who met with a near-death experience after contracting the coronavirus. However, thanks to an earlier encounter he had with Falun Dafa, his life was saved.
On August 3, 2020 Dong Ngyuen went out on his own with a mask to buy lottery tickets, he noticed that he kept coughing and had a fever in the afternoon. This coughing continued into the night, and he knew he had contracted the coronavirus.
When he was brought to the hospital the next day, he was shown to have high blood pressure and was short of breath at night. Dong Ngyuen had to have his life maintained on a ventilator, as he was constantly coughing and slipping into a coma.
His condition continued to grow worse in the coming days as he had extreme difficulty breathing, even with continued medications and intensive care. It was at this moment that he remembered his friend Dr. Giao Ngyuen.
Encountering Falun Dafa
Dong Ngyuen was connected to Dr. Giao Ngyuen after having been introduced to the practice of Falun Dafa in an online meeting in March, 2020. He read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, with Dr. Giao online and also learned the exercises online.
Dr. Giao told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” whenever he was in a crisis, and also reminded him that “To learn Falun Dafa, you should cultivate your heart, look inward, and let go of your attachments.”
Dong Nguyen called Dr. Giao on August 7 now that he was in intensive care, who reassured and reminded him to sincerely repeat the phrases “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good”. He began to recite the phrases over and over while also meditating over the next few days.
After three days, Dong Nguyen felt much better and stopped taking medicine or using his ventilator. As he started to do more of the Falun Dafa exercises, he stopped coughing, his oxygen level rose to 85%, and his blood pressure and blood sugar returned to normal. After another three days, he recovered from the coronavirus.
From this experience, Dong Nguyen realized that Falun Dafa is a practice that’s more than just exercising and book reading, and that what’s most crucial was to cultivate one’s character and get rid of attachments. He realized the connection he had to powerful energy from the cosmos through reciting the phrases, and that Falun Dafa has a powerful positive energy field that can ensure the health of those who align with it.
Dong Nguyen continues to study the teachings of Falun Dafa with others and does the exercises daily. After three or four months, he also recovered from polio, which he had since childhood and had prevented him from standing with his feet flat on the ground. He cherishes his cultivation, recites the two auspicious phrases each day, and hopes to one day meet Falun Dafa’s founder, Master Li Hongzhi, since it was Falun Dafa that saved his life.
