Solemn Declaration

I am a Falun Gong practitioner. I was illegally arrested and forced into a labor camp and brainwashing class after I went to Beijing to appeal to the government for the freedom to practice Falun Gong. When I was first arrested, my mind did not waver in the face of the police officers' coercive tactics. Later on however, they isolated me from everyone and pretended to be nice to me. They gave me the impression that they were detaining me for my own good, and manipulated my attachments to fame, self-interest, and sentimentality (to interfere with my righteous thoughts). Under the influence of thought karma, I was unable to see through their evil intentions of trying to force me to give up cultivation practice, and I began to believe what they said. I was then forced into a brainwashing class where the police played videotapes that slandered Master and Dafa. During this time I was under an intense bombardment of evil thoughts and constantly undergoing psychological torture. The police used underhanded and deceptive measures to try and trick me into giving up my cultivation practice. Because my righteous thoughts were not strong enough and I didn't let go of my attachments, the evil soon took advantage of this loophole and I enlightened along an evil path, doing things that a Dafa disciple should never do.

After going home and discussing my situation with fellow practitioners, I studied the Fa calmly and came to clearly realize my mistakes in agreeing with the evil enlightenment. I was ashamed to face Master, but then I decided that I would not disappoint Master for a second time (by giving up) and would redouble my efforts to make up for the losses I brought to Dafa. I would strengthen my righteous thoughts, clearly distinguish the righteous from the evil, and catch up with the progress of Fa-rectification.

Today I solemnly declare that everything I wrote while under extreme pressure from the torture that was not consistent with a Dafa practitioner's conduct, including the "guarantee letter", "separation letter", "repentance letter", and "disclosure letter" (those are all statements promising to give up the practice of Dafa), are all null and void. From now on, I will truly follow the Fa and strive hard to become a genuine Fa-rectification period Dafa disciple. I will be steadfast in my cultivation, and make up for the losses that I brought to Dafa.

Solemn Declaration

I began my cultivation practice in 1996. After the persecution of Dafa began in 1999, I went to Beijing twice in October to appeal to the authorities for the freedom to practice Falun Gong. After the second trip, I was illegally sentenced to three years in prison by the local court. When I began to face the evil's persecution, I persisted in following the Fa and maintaining my righteous thoughts. After a while however, under the influence of other people and with holding onto the desire to protect myself, I was deceived by the evil and my mindset changed from resisting the persecution to going along with it. I slowly drifted away from Dafa and began doubting Dafa. In this state, I wrote and said things that a Dafa practitioner should never do, and slandered Dafa and Master. After my early release from prison about a year ago, my conduct deviated even farther away from Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance and I became no different than an ordinary person. My xinxing (heart nature/moral quality) became worse and worse and I was truly in great danger.

Three years later, at a time when I was totally muddleheaded, I met some old-time fellow practitioners who had been looking for me everywhere. With their help, I began to read Master's lectures once again. My confused spirit was deeply touched again by the wonder and benevolence of Dafa, and I realized that I had taken an extremely dangerous path that could have lead to self-destruction. I had deep regrets.

Now I solemnly declare: I am ashamed of the crimes that I committed against Dafa. Everything that I have written or said that was against Dafa is hereby null and void. I realize once again that Falun Dafa is the only Fa that can save sentient beings. All of the propaganda from the evil political scoundrels who attack Dafa is nothing but slanderous lies to harm and deceive innocent people. I will not be mislead by the evil from now on and will bring myself to follow the standard of a Dafa practitioners strictly once again. I will study the Fa diligently and look inside to find where I fall short. I will be persistent in following Dafa by using the Fa as my guide, and compensate for the damages that I brought to Dafa. I will tell the facts about Dafa to the world and save sentient beings.

Solemn Declaration

I am a state cadre. I obtained Dafa in March 1998. I was arrested and sent to a detention center in August 2001 for clarifying the truth about Dafa. While in detention, I was tortured. On December 22, 2001, I was released after being extorted 5,000 Yuan (the average monthly income is about 500 Yuan in China). Moreover, I was dismissed from the Party and removed from my post.

On August 24, 2001, my husband (also a Dafa practitioner) and myself were arrested and sent to the detention center, leaving behind two children with no one to take care of them. At the beginning of my detention, I was still able to maintain very strong righteous thoughts. The police ordered many leaders from my work unit to come to persuade me to give up the practice of Dafa. They also deprived me of sleep day and night. After exhausting all possible means, they still couldn't make me give in. Then they started to take advantage of my attachment to sentimentality. Every day, my leaders, colleagues, and friends bombarded me with slanderous lies. In the end, I succumbed to the evil. I wrote a guarantee letter promising to give up the practice of Dafa.

Now I understand that even though writing the guarantee letter was against my will, I was still siding with the evil. I felt really sorry that I have let down Teacher and blemished Dafa. I wasn't worthy of the title of "Fa-rectification Dafa disciple." Over the past year, I have never stopped studying the Fa, clarifying the truth and sending forth righteous thoughts. However, my one-time deviation from Dafa was like a big stone in my heart. I felt very regretful and I couldn't face my fellow practitioners.

I hereby solemnly declare all statements I wrote or said that were bad for Dafa and Master null and void. I will follow Teacher closely, strengthen my belief in Dafa, study the Fa more, clarify the truth, and send forth righteous thoughts to clear away all the evil elements that undermine Dafa. I will let go of my last attachments and become a true Dafa practitioner in the Fa-rectification period. I will keep up with the Fa-rectification process and make up for the loss I brought to Dafa.
