"Today You've Met an Honorable Person"

One morning, I bought a two-yuan (1) breakfast and gave a 50 yuan bill to the old man selling the food. He gave me 98 yuan back in change. I gave the extra money back to him. The old man said, "I thought the 50-yuan note was a 100-yuan note. Thank you." A bystander commented, "Today you've met an honorable person."

I told him, "I practice Falun Dafa. I do not take extra money from anyone. Please remember that Falun Dafa is good and the principle of Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truth-Compassion-Tolerance) is good."

The old person nodded his head again and again and said, "I will remember. Falun Dafa is good. Zhen-Shan-Ren is good."

A Policeman Takes His Family to a Practitioner's Home to Hear the Truth about Falun Gong

My husband was imprisoned by the police for clarifying the truth about Falun Gong.

After several days, the police took me to the detention center and asked me, "Do you want your husband to be sentenced or released?"

I said, "Certainly I want him to be released. He did not violate any laws. Why would you sentence him?"

The police replied, "Then you need to inform on another Dafa practitioner and when we arrest that person, we will release your husband."

I saw that one of the police officers there had a little Buddha statuette hanging on his neck. I thought this person might be a believer in religion. I asked him, "Why do you wear an image of the Buddha around your neck?" He didn't know what to say.

I said, "You do not even have a superficial understanding of Buddhism. Falun Dafa is a righteous law and a way to achieve enlightenment."

As soon as he heard that, he said immediately, "Don't talk about Falun Gong. I have to support my wife and child." (He said this because he feared having his pay docked by his superiors for listening to teachings of a banned spirituality.)

I calmly looked into his eyes and sent forth righteous thoughts and recited silently, "Falun Dafa is good. Zhen-Shan-Ren is good." At the same time, I asked Teacher to give me wisdom to be able to clarify the truth to him and save him. The policeman asked, "Why are you looking at me?" I told him, "You have been deceived by Jiang's media."

He asked, "How is that?" I said, "Why are you afraid of Falun Gong?"

The policeman replied, "Because Falun Gong has been declared an evil religion by the government, there was the self-immolation ..."

I explained about the staged self-immolation in Tiananmen Square and about the labor camps persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. I told him how more than 900 Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted to death. I also mentioned the rapid growth of Falun Gong in China and that more than 60 countries overseas support Falun Gong.

Finally, I pointed out the fundamental reason for the persecution of Falun Gong: Jiang's jealousy and his personal agenda. I listed the many health benefits received from practicing Falun Gong in our local area, and especially emphasized that Falun Gong practitioners would never participate in politics or oppose the government. "We clarify the truth not out of hate, but to eradicate the lies that are deceiving people."

While I clarified the truth in depth, the policeman's facial expression changed from anger, hostility and fear and became quite relaxed. Finally, he smiled with understanding. He said, "We've often wondered why so many educated people practice, and why other countries do not oppose it. I also want to practice Falun Gong!"

When he got off from work, both of us went out the door together. As we walked, I told him, "Teacher comes to save people. Just remember Teacher, and remember that Falun Dafa is good and Zhen-Shan-Ren is good."

After we said good-bye, on my way home, he called me on my mobile phone. He said, "You can show me the practice one day."

I said, "You try to find a way to release my husband first."

After my husband was released, that policeman brought quite a few of his family members to my home and they listened to me telling them the facts about Falun Gong.
