"It is the Power of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance"
A Chinese student, who was about to graduate from school here and return to China, met some Falun Gong practitioners. He examined some truth-clarification materials and the book Zhuan Falun. The student was hoping to learn more about Falun Gong before leaving the country. On one occasion, he came to our practice site. By watching practitioners peacefully practice the exercises, and by talking with practitioners, he discovered more about Falun Gong. Previously, when he was in China, he heard and saw all kinds of slanderous propaganda against Falun Gong, but he understood that the lies were false. However, in that environment, finding out the truth was very difficult. Once he learned about the Jiang regime's brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, he was shocked. He sighed while looking at those persecution-related pictures: he understood that brutalizing people who practice Truth-Compassion-Forbearance will result in celestial retribution for the persecutors, and that the persecution will surely not last long.
The day before he left, he said that he had read Mr. Li's book, Zhuan Falun, and although he hadn't yet finished the book due to time constraints, he found that the content made perfect sense and needed to be thoroughly studied. He also stated that the most significant benefit he gained from studying abroad was finding out the truth about Falun Gong. The following were his own views: "If all people across China were to learn such a good cultivation way, China would have hope. We should promote this practice, the best part of Chinese traditional culture, across the Mainland." He understood that China's moral fabric had deteriorated. Additionally, only if changes happen from within people's hearts, will there be some hope for the Chinese people. What the faction in power is now doing in China truly harms its people and the entire country.
He said to us, "All I can do is to help those who are deceived to know the truth. I'll spread the truth to my classmates, friends and my teachers and do whatever I can." He said that he had been contemplating a question: "What has given so many kind-hearted people the strength to hold onto the truth in such a fearless, peaceful and rational way--in the face of barbaric persecution? What was the reason behind it?" Practitioners told him that it is the power of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance. When he was leaving, all of a sudden, he understood, "Correct! It is the power of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance!"
