Clarifying the Truth to My Class and Going to Beijing to Validate Dafa
(Clearwisdom.net) I was born in 1951 and I obtained the Fa in June 1999. Amazingly, the diseases that had been bothering me for decades, my tracheitis, some cardiovascular diseases, and leg pain I was experiencing all disappeared in a few months after I started practicing Falun Gong.
After Teacher's article "Rationality" was published, I dissolved into the great Fa-rectification torrent. I helped to put up truth-clarifying words in the city, sometimes for the entire night. The streets, walkways, and buildings were full of phrases such as "Falun Dafa is good", "Falun Dafa is a righteous way" and "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" [Note: with access to all normal means of communication such as newspapers, magazines, TV and radio denied to them, Falun Gong practitioners have resorted to many creative and sometimes unusual methods for clarifying the truth of the persecution to the Chinese people]. One night, while another practitioner and I were doing this in the moonlight, one of my students saw me. News of what I was doing spread gradually. I thought, "It is fine that people know about this. I am doing the most sacred thing. I am saving sentient beings." I kept doing Fa-rectification work. I deal with money at school, so I took the opportunity when issuing employees their checks to clarify the truth and give flyers to them. Teacher says, "Every person you come into contact with in society is someone to clarify the truth to" ("To All Students at the Nordic Fa Conference")
I thought, "It is not enough to expose facts about the persecution only to my colleagues, I should also tell my students." I taught nine ethics classes. I decided to give the students a chance to learn about the truth, and they listened attentively. Some raised questions. They asked, "Teacher, the TV programs say that Falun Gong kills people and that they committed self-immolation, is that true?" "They are false," I answered. I said, "Teacher Li tells his students in his books that we cannot take any lives. Suicide is sinful. Reports of self-immolation and killing are created by bad people. They are slandering Falun Gong. Don't be fooled by them. How can 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance' be bad?" The faces of the children were full of pure compassion. I was very happy to see so many kids understanding the truth.
Three hundred students in eight classes got to know "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance." When it was the time for the ninth class, I wasn't allowed to continue. Because someone reported to the authorities about what I was doing, the school administration deprived me of my right to teach and arranged for me to work as a gatekeeper. Actually this job was an even better opportunity to talk with people. Whenever I had the opportunity I spread Dafa to the people who passed by. When I saw the principal I still spread the Fa to him. Finally, he became clearheaded. He said to me, "It looks like Falun Gong is really good. After I retire, I will study Falun Gong too." This April, the school changed its administration. Someone reported on me again and the new principal reported me to his superior. On the morning of that day, I was dismissed.
In the afternoon, the head of the "610 Office" [an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political or judicial systems] in our county, the education section, the head of the "610 Office" in our town and the police station in town, dispatched all of the local policemen to my school. The school principal asked me to go to the school. Not until I arrived at the school did I realize that they wanted to arrest me. I kept sending forth righteous thoughts. The police chief started to interrogate me. No matter what he asked, I did not say anything. The police chief asked my daughter to persuade me to write the guarantee letter (to stop practicing Falun Dafa) and then left. I comforted my daughter while I sent forth righteous thoughts. Then I stepped out of the room and went straight to the gate. Just at that moment a three-wheeled motorcycle stopped outside of the gate. I got on the motorcycle. I have been going from place to place since then.
Not long after that, a TV station in our county broadcasted false propaganda, saying that Falun Gong fights the Party for the minds of our youth. It was based on my clarifying the truth to my classes. Later I saw my family. They told me that on the day that I left the school, three police vehicles turned the whole town upside down looking for me and threw people in a panic. The police chief scolded his subordinates, "So many people couldn't keep track of just one person. You're useless!" Police were stationed outside of my home and outside of my mother's home, but all in vain.
I am still taking advantage of any opportunity to clarify the truth. This April I went to Tiananmen Square in Beijing, and everything went smoothly. I opened a banner that said, "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" and shouted "Falun Dafa is good!" "Falun Dafa is a righteous way!" Later I returned home safely.
Fellow practitioners, let us step forward openly and without fear. We are Fa-rectification Dafa disciples. Teacher is watching over us at every moment. Only if we study the Fa more and better harmonize the Fa will we exemplify what it means to be Dafa disciples. Let us strive forward diligently in fulfilling our roles in Fa-rectification.
