Solemn Declarations from Dafa Practitioners
1. Solemn Declaration
I am a teacher from a village. Recently I have read some Falun Gong books and understood some facts about Falun Gong. It has shaken me a great deal. I participated in an activity organized by my school in the second half of 2002, where teachers signed their names to oppose Falun Gong and led the students to march on the street. I participated in this "activity." Now I have studied the Fa and I regret my ignorant behavior very much. To Master Li and practitioners, I declare: All my words and behavior due to my ignorance are invalid! I will double my effort to make up and recover the damage caused to Dafa.

2. Solemn Declaration
I attained the Fa in 1998. When I opened a restaurant in 2002, I borrowed money from a family member because I did not have enough saved. Under pressure from family members and the chef, I verbally agreed "not to spread the Fa in the restaurant." I also signed my name on a "guarantee statement." Even though the "guarantee letter" was in English and said, "not to spread qigong" (because my family members and the chef were not good at English), I was actually accepting the arrangement of the old forces. Through studying Master Li's new articles, I realized that the nature of this is the same as the "guarantee statement" used in mainland China's labor camps. It was due to a lack of righteous thoughts that I brought shame to Dafa and caused great damage to Dafa.
Today I solemnly declare that all direct and indirect recognitions I made to "guarantee" not to spread the Fa are invalid. I will firmly follow Teacher's words, "It's not that you're cultivating amidst the ordeals they created. Rather, you are to walk your own path well while not acknowledging them, not even acknowledging the elimination of their ordeals' manifestations." (Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Chicago Conference). I will start to memorize and recite Zhuan Falun again. I will utilize all available time to study the Fa and I will not let a single truth-clarification opportunity to go by. I will strive forward vigorously in my cultivation and recover the damage that I have caused to Dafa.
