The Power of Righteous Thoughts
As the ninth anniversary of Teacher's teaching the Fa was approaching, a female Falun Dafa practitioner in the countryside of a Northwest province in China prepared, along with her fellow practitioners, 40 banners and many truth-clarifying flyers and posters. They hung the banners and posters in the hills and the mountains outside the city and distributed the flyers at tourist attractions. Although the roads leading to the mountains had been blocked, the fearless practitioners climbed up to the mountains from the cliffs. On that day, Dafa banners fluttered in the mountains solemnly. Tourists were eager to take photos of the scene. Some folks said, "Falun Gong is really smart. Falun Dafa banners suddenly appeared in front of City Hall, the Municipal Courthouse, the Detention Center, and the Police Headquarters. Many onlookers and policemen were looking at the banners, but nobody dared to climb up and take the banners down. The banners were hanging there for a long time."
A lady who suffered from diabetes obtained the Fa in 1997 and became free of all diseases and medical conditions since that time. Her family life also became very harmonious. After July 20, 1999, this lady was not firm in cultivating Falun Dafa. After she quit doing Falun Dafa, the diseases came back to her and started to get worse and worse. She had problems speaking clearly, her eyesight was blurry, and she could not move freely. Noticing the changes, this lady made up her mind to cultivate Falun Dafa again and decided to go to Tiananmen to validate Falun Dafa. Her husband, who was not a practitioner, decided to accompany her to Beijing. With the help of her husband, she unfurled a banner a little bit by a little bit with her shaking hands despite the fact that she could not move easily. She shouted in front of the tourists, "Falun Dafa is good!"
Latest News From China
Today, 97 people published solemn announcements declaring that all that they have written, said and done under the evil's forced brainwashing and high-pressure persecution that didn't conform to Dafa is completely void. From now on, they will dedicate their lives to making up for the losses they caused to Dafa, clarifying the truth to people and catching up with Teacher's Fa-rectification process. á
After practicing Dafa, my severe heart problems, neurasthenia and gastroenteritis [stomach problems] were all cured. Later, I was arrested and detained in a detention center and a labor camp, and I suffered all kinds of brutal beatings. I received corporal punishments and was forced to do heavy labor. The thugs forced the practitioners to write "repentance statements" and shamelessly made up a video to deceive the United Nations. I cultivated Dafa with determination and didn't give in to the evil. I exposed their despicable crimes and eliminated the evil with righteous thoughts.

Falun Dafa around the World
During the hunger strike petition held by Falun Gong practitioners in Toronto, people would, from time to time, chat with practitioners, asking them how to practice the exercises. One westerner said: "I support you a hundred percent! I'll link your website to my homepage." One young Indian gentleman promised: "I will definitely write letters to support you!"
The Geneva Family Information Newspaper of Switzerland reported on March 28, that during the session of the U.N. Human Rights Commission, Ms. Zhang Cuiying came to Geneva to exhibit her art work, and called for every visitor to pay attention to the persecution encountered by Falun Gong practitioners in China and to support those people who are persecuted by the Jiang regime.
From a practitioner's diary regarding children's education: How should one teach children that they ought to be considerate of others? In my own mind, there is neither the concept of material encouragement nor means of punishment. I only encourage him to do his best within his limits of his capability. Sometimes I spiritually support and encourage him.
Broadcast script: Make phone calls to citizens in Changchun City. Ever since the suppression, Falun Gong practitioners have tried all kinds of legal ways to appeal but the result has been only incarceration and torture. For a bright future for all of us, they are using all different channels to try to let you know the truth so you will not be deceived by the lies of Jiang's regime and therefore go against the good people who believe in "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance."
Reference material: Read The Coming Collapse of China by Gordon Chang. This book illustrates all kinds of corruption and crisis in Chinese society, from the Internet system to the WTO, from ideology to the shift of power in the 16th People's Congress. It also points out the inaccuracy of official statistics. It discloses China's hypocritical and weak nature under the cover of superficial prosperity.
