Solemn Declarations from Dafa Disciples
At the beginning of the persecution in 1999, because I did not understand the Fa from within the Fa, I succumbed to pressure. I said bad things about Dafa and wrote a "guarantee" not to practice Falun Gong. I even let them take away a Dafa book. I knew then that it wasn't the right thing to do. Afterwards, as I read more of Master's new articles I realized what I had done was not only a stain on my own cultivation path, but it was also a crime against Dafa. So I resumed my path of Fa-rectification cultivation. At the same time I began to understand the solemn nature of cultivation practice.
Until recently, the majority of the solemn statements I read on Clearwisdom.net were written by ordinary people and Dafa disciples' relatives explaining that when they said bad things about Dafa, or wrote a "guarantee" for their loved ones, they didn't know better, because they were deceived. Once they learned the truth, even these ordinary people were able to correct their wrongdoing by publishing their solemn statements. I, a Dafa disciple, have no excuse not to admit to my wrongdoing. Therefore, I hereby solemnly declare that the bad things I said in the past regarding Dafa and the "guarantee" I wrote are null and void. I regret any excuse I had at the time. From now on I will study the Fa harder, clarify the truth, and send righteous thoughts. I will welcome the arrival of the Fa rectifying the human world with purer righteous thoughts and actions. I will redouble my efforts to make up for my mistakes and retrieve the loss to Dafa.
Because I didn't have a deep understanding of the Fa, when I saw my son getting arrested, imprisoned and brutally persecuted, I felt even worse. I complained and even blamed Dafa. Under the mentality and influence of our relatives' attachments I wrote a "guarantee letter" for my son. I was sorrowful for what I did. How could I do such a thing to my great Master and savior? After studying Master's new articles, and with the help of fellow disciples, I gradually realized that at this time of Fa-rectification cultivation, I have to do as Master taught us: study the Fa, clarify the truth, and send righteous thoughts to purge the evil. I hereby declare that everything that I said and did that damaged Dafa is null and void! Following closely behind Master's Fa-rectification, I will be a qualified Dafa disciple. I will redouble my efforts to make up for my mistakes and retrieve the loss to Dafa.

Early in 2002, I was illegally sentenced to forced labor for one year. Right before the "Sixteenth Congress" the policemen at the labor camp started a new round of more severe persecution towards steadfast Dafa disciples. The policemen equipped themselves with 4,500 V electric batons, and they instigated other convicts to torment and devastate Dafa disciples, physically and mentally. Under such great pressure I wrote the "three letters" against my will. I filled out the tests made by the wicked that were disrespectful to Master and Dafa. Afterwards, I knew I had made a huge mistake! Although I was filled with deep regret, I failed to repair the loss at the time due to my worldly attachments to sentimentality and fear. This caused a negative influence on Fa-rectification as a whole, and as a result, the ruthless persecution was aggravated.
After I came home, through further studying the Fa and with the help of fellow practitioners, I realized that what I did was against my will, although as a Dafa disciple I should never have done it--because it is such a shame. Not wanting to let down Master's boundless compassion and his efforts to save us, I hereby declare: The "three letters" I have written and the test I have answered while in the labor camp were forced upon me against my will by the wicked; they are all null and void. In the future, I will give my best on the path of Fa-rectification. I will do what a Dafa disciple should do and become a qualified Dafa disciple during this Fa-rectification time. I will redouble my effort to make up for my mistakes and retrieve the loss to Dafa.
