(Clearwisdom.net) During the spring and summer of this year, cartoons and banners vilifying Falun Gong appeared all over the countryside. My village cadre posted similar slanderous cartoons inside his office to satisfy the Municipal Party Committee and the "610 Office."
Several of us practitioners were perplexed by this situation. What should we do? When such materials were posted outside, we could find out ways to take them down; posted inside, however, it was not easy to handle. We discussed various approaches, but found our thoughts lacking. We would not reach our goal of clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings with such an approach. We also saw many potential dangers. We were without righteous thoughts, and therefore lacked righteous actions, causing delay.
One day a practitioner went to take a look inside the office under the pretense of handing in an electric bill. The walls were littered with the slanderous cartoons. The practitioner immediately sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil in other dimensions. He clarified the truth to the village secretary, the director, and an electrician, telling them that Dafa practitioners have been treated unjustly and that Falun Dafa brings hundreds of benefits and no harm to society. He also told how Falun Dafa has spread to over 60 countries. He said, since the persecution initiated by Jiang began, hundreds of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners were illegally detained in Chinese labor camps, prisons, and mental hospitals, and over 1,000 practitioners had been tortured to death. He also talked about how those who persecute Falun Gong have suffered different degrees of retribution. After listening, the village secretary tried to make a deal with the practitioner, saying, "We will take down the cartoons, if, in the future, you guys stop posting Dafa materials around town. Agree?" The practitioner answered righteously: "We post our banners to let more and more people learn the truth. Even if I stopped, other practitioners would continue to do it."
After listening, the secretary did not say anything, and personally tore down every single cartoon.
