Washington DC Practitioners Send Forth Righteous Thoughts in front of the Chinese Embassy and Raise the Public's Awareness of the Lawsuit Against Jiang (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On April 12 and 13, Falun Gong practitioners in the Washington DC area gathered in front of the Chinese Embassy to continuously send forth righteous thoughts, study the Fa and share experiences and understandings to support the lawsuit against Jiang and the "610 Office". On April 14, the plaintiffs' attorney delivered documents citing evidence of crimes committed by Jiang and the 610 Office's as well as those for the legal procedure of the lawsuit.
The lawsuit against Jiang has entered the phase of presenting legal statements. To clear away the evil elements in other dimensions that are trying to interfere with the lawsuit, Washington DC practitioners went to the Chinese Embassy to hold group practice. On Saturday, the Chinese Embassy hosted a banquet to entertain some guests. Officials who entered the Embassy could all see the practitioners' doing the exercises. The practitioners unfurled a banner with the words, "Falun Dafa is good" in front of the Embassy.
The lawsuit against Jiang is a global event to uphold justice through legal procedures in the human world, and throughout the proceedings we will comprehensively clarify the truth and eliminate the evil factors in other dimensions. Some practitioners contacted government officials, including congressmen, and delivered related documents of the lawsuit for them to read. Some practitioners used different ways including making phone calls to China, chatting online or mailing letters to inform government officials, the police and the people in China about the lawsuit against Jiang. Practitioners who deal with the media are compiling documents from similar trials in the past to help people understand what the lawsuit entails. Some practitioners contacted international experts of law, professors and scholars, introduced to them the background of the lawsuit against Jiang and requested their help and expertise.
While studying the Fa well and sending forth righteous thoughts, the practitioners are utilizing this lawsuit to broadly relate to people from all walks of life in and out of China the facts of the severe persecution against Falun Gong. Bringing the chief perpetrator of the persecution Jiang to trial is a momentous event in the course of Fa-rectification.
Last October, Jiang came to visit the United States, and practitioners from all over the world took the opportunity to send forth righteous thoughts as a group from a short distance to eliminate the evil elements in other dimensions. At that time, more than 2000 Falun Gong practitioners went to Chicago and Houston to hold group peaceful appeals, leading Jiang to spend much of his time hiding out to avoid seeing the practitioners.
During group discussions, we felt that bringing Jiang to trial today is an extension of the events in last October to clear away the evil entities in other dimensions. At that time, making good use of Jiang's visit to the United States, the practitioners expose the facts about the persecution of Falun Gong to government officials, media and people from all walks of life. This played an important role in clearing away the evil factors in other dimensions.
Today, we are using legal procedures to bring Jiang to trial, and the truth-clarification can be done in an even broader scope in the society. The process of the Fa rectification requires that we as Dafa disciples clear away the evil elements at this last stage of the Fa rectification. This directly tests whether practitioners all over the world can be connected to form one body and overcome difficulties together.
Master said in Zhuan Falun (the main book of Falun Gong): "What is, then, the purpose of opening up the Heavenly Circuit? Opening up the Heavenly Circuit itself is not the purpose of the practice. Even if your Heavenly Circuit is opened up, I would say that it is still nothing. If you continue your cultivation, you aim to open up a hundred channels with one channel, and open up all the channels in your body through such a form of the Heavenly Circuit." ... "Then how far will the cultivation go? All the channels will gradually become broader, with the energy getting stronger and brighter. In the end, ten thousand channels will be connected all together in order to reach the state in which the body has no channels or points. The whole body will be connected to become one piece, and this is the ultimate goal of opening up the channels. It is aimed at transforming the human body completely through high energy matter."
We realized during discussions that practitioners' activities in the human world involve the transformation of our Gong (energy potential) in other dimensions as well as requirements from different realms in our cultivation.
From the surface, the lawsuit is just an event in the human world. In fact, however, it plays an important part in thoroughly clearing away the deviated elements among practitioners, as well as those in the gaps in other dimensions, and transforming these substances into high energy matter, so as to welcome the day when the Fa rectifies the human world. The key point is whether practitioners throughout the world can be connected together in order to reach the state in which there are no channels or points.
Some practitioners were constrained by the form of using legal procedure to bring Jiang to trial, considering that they were not familiar with the statutes, and thus this lawsuit should be handled by those practitioners who are in the legal profession. Other practitioners mostly support the suit through sending forth righteous thoughts. Through discussions, we felt that it is very good that practitioners intensify sending forth righteous thoughts to actively clear away the evil factors that are trying to interfere with this lawsuit. On the other hand, we should not ignore exposing the basic facts about this lawsuit to the public. None of the three things: studying the Fa, clarifying the truth and sending forth righteous thoughts can be neglected.
In addition, some practitioners thought that whether the lawsuit can succeed fully depended on the attorneys, which was equivalent to putting such a big event in the Fa-rectification on the shoulders of a few attorneys. Including those practitioners who are directly participating in the lawsuit, if everyone considers this as simply a legal affair, a matter of those several practitioners handling things, it will inevitably bring additional difficulties and tribulations to this lawsuit. To take an example from the past, perhaps some practitioners placed hope in the 16th Congress of China to reinstate Falun Gong in the Chinese government, and the result was that the outcome of the 16th Congress was even worse than expected. We should conform to society to handle the lawsuit against Jiang, but in our hearts, everything that we are doing today is for the sake of offering salvation to sentient beings and a part of the Fa-rectification. If we neglect the big picture of the Fa-rectification and ignore making use of this lawsuit to clarify the truth to people, we will be come severely limited in our endeavors.
Regarding this issue, over the past four years, we have had many successes but also some less than ideal outcomes. The family rescue work in Canada gained success, and one of the primary reasons is that the practitioners truly explained the facts of persecution clearly. This is to say, that rescue work should not be confined to the rescue itself, similarly, the lawsuit should not be limited to the lawsuit itself.
Different layers of dimensions or time-spaces are connected. Greater universes contain smaller universes. In the big picture of the Fa rectification, major events are taking place, which are also closely related to practitioners' individual cultivation. If there is a breakthrough as a whole, the universe that each individual represents will also experience a breakthrough. Many practitioners have already experienced this great change. The manifestation is that requirements have been raised in our studying the Fa, sending forth righteous thoughts and looking inside for shortcomings. A small oversight in getting rid of attachments in our personal cultivation would manifest in the interference in the projects we participate in. Some practitioners appeared to encounter major forms of interference. If there is a loophole in our personal cultivation, the evil beings in other dimensions would gather together and interfere with us. We therefore need to maintain righteous thoughts and a peaceful mind at each moment, always consider others first and set strict standards for ourselves.
On April 5, 2003, the Falun Gong procession drew a lot of attention in the Washington DC Annual Cherry Blossom Parade. The Minghui School's procession was arranged to lead the entire parade in which more than 70 organizations participated. When a tourist group from Mainland China saw the scene, they were quite shocked. A practitioner told the tourists in this group: "When you return to China, please tell people what you saw here. Falun Gong practitioners walk on the famous Connecticut Avenue and lead many other organizations from all over the country in the parade. Why is that Falun Gong is respected in other countries in the world, while in China, it is persecuted?"
Today, Falun Gong practitioners are asking the entire world to take part in and support this trial to uphold justice, exposing the suppression that has been going on in China, and giving everyone a chance to position themselves righteously during the Fa-rectification
