I Can't Help But Have Growing Respect Whenever Recalling Those Falun Gong Practitioners
January 28, 2002
(Clearwisdom.net) I have been a common criminal detained in a detention center. Whenever I recall those Falun Gong practitioners, I can't help but respect them.
In the beginning I had hostility toward them because of the propaganda of Jiang's regime that influenced me, and I thought they were playing politics, ignoring their spouses, children, parents and siblings. After a period of contact with them, my impression of them changed. In fact, they are all good husbands, good wives, good parents, and good children, their generosity of being able to forbear any persecution filled me with admiration. They would do everything according to the principle of "Truth, Compassion, Forbearance," and look within themselves to see if they haven't done anything properly when encountering conflicts, and would immediately correct those behaviors not complying with the standard of being a Falun Gong practitioner. Among them are teachers, officials, lawyers and Ph.Ds, who all have a very high level of virtue. One incident that impressed me most was that during the winter, when there was few beddings in the cell, they would always give their own to others whenever someone was in need, while they slept on the bare boards [without any bedding], wearing cotton clothes. According to their saying this is "selflessness and altruism."
But such good people were detained, sent to forced labor camps and sentenced. What has happened, my fellow countrymen? I would also tell everyone another thing, namely, the reason why these Falun Gong practitioners risk their lives to clarify the truth of Falun Gong to us, they are actually offering salvation to us. My understanding is that the universe has its formation, settlement and destruction. This destruction results from beings having become bad. While these beings who have become bad would have to be eliminated, Falun Dafa is there to offer salvation to people who have become bad. But people are hostile to it because of the lies of Jiang's regime, are hostile to Falun Dafa, which created everything of the universe. How dangerous this attitude is! I'm lucky because I have known about the truth, thanks these Falun Gong practitioners. I wish those people who, like me, were previously deceived will also wake up as early as possible.
(This person got to know about the truth of the persecution against Falun Dafa during his contact with Falun Gong practitioners during his detention in jail. Practitioner's noble moral character moved him; that is why he has established the righteousness of Dafa in his heart. Another being is going to have a chance to be saved.)
