(Clearwisdom.net) I am a female Falun Gong (or Falun Dafa) practitioner in China in my 70's. [My name is withdrawn for safety reasons.] I started to cultivate myself under the tutelage of Falun Gong in 1996. Since Jiang Zemin started to openly persecute Falun Gong practitioners on July 20, 1999, I have been sharing with fellow Chinese people the important facts about Falun Gong. I have been illegally detained in Chengdu City Detention Center for three times as a result, but each time I walked out the detention center in a dignified manner after I sent forth righteous thoughts. I have been trying to follow Master's teaching and try to do the three things well, including studying Falun Gong books, sending forth righteous thoughts and clarifying the truth about Falun Gong to my fellow Chinese people. When I share the truth about Falun Gong with other people, I always keep Teacher's words in mind.

Teacher said,

"This is why each Dafa disciple needs to realize the importance of clarifying the truth. This, more than anything, is what you should do with all your effort, and it's the most magnificent. The salvation of sentient beings and the Consummation of cosmic bodies that correspond to you are all part of this. Every single Dafa disciple needs to do this. Don't miss a single opportunity."

(From "Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Washington, D.C. Fa Conference")

I try to conduct myself according to the Fa. I try to keep a compassionate heart and offer Teacher's salvation to people in my area. I take every opportunity that comes by to share with others the truth about Falun Gong, even when I was surrounded by some a hundred policemen cursing and beating me. I have been clarifying the truth about Falun Gong in a fearless and confident manner.

The following are a few of my stories that I thought might help encourage my fellow practitioners to step out and clarify the truth about Falun Gong.

Around 7:00 PM of February 13, 2004 while I was posting flyers with truth-clarification messages near Jinsha Train Station, someone shouted behind me, "She is a Falun Gong practitioner!" In less than three minutes, several police cars arrived at the scene. A dozen tall and muscular police officers jumped out of the police cars, quickly surrounded me and snatched me to the local precinct.

The police found the truth-clarification flyers that I carried, and lay them out on the desk. Next they videotaped and photographed the flyers on the desk. I felt very sharp and focused, and did not feel terrified at all. I thought, "It is not every day that I meet so many police officers at the same time and in the same room. Now that you have brought me here, I will take this perfect opportunity to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to you all." Before they even started to interrogate me, I started to reveal the truth about Jiang Zemin's heinous crimes and persecution against Falun Gong practitioners. I presented facts that indicate the so-called "Tiananmen Self-Immolation" was a staged act, a lowest form of smear campaign to vilify Falun Gong and justify the persecution against Falun Gong. I described to them the gruesome facts of the tortures subjected to Falun Gong practitioners detained in the prisons and forced labors camps. Next I told the police the fact that Jiang Zemin declared to eradicate Falun Gong in three months without bothering to discuss it with the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China. The fact that Jiang Zemin had issued only verbal orders, instead of written orders, to eradicate Falun Gong, strongly suggests that he plans to have all of you be responsible for the heinous crimes against Falun Gong in the future. Contrary to Jiang Zemin's wish, Falun Gong was not eradicated. Instead, the number of people practicing Falun Gong continues to increase in every corner of the world. One day Falun Gong will have its justice, and you will become Jiang Zemin's scapegoat if you don't stop following his order immediately. It is not worth it to commit crimes for Jiang Zemin. The heavens will eventually punish those who commit wrongdoings, including those who commit crimes against Falun Gong practitioners. I also cited many real cases where people participating in the persecution against Falun Gong practitioners suffering karmic retribution. They kept replacing the police officers in the room with new groups of officers.

By the time I left the police station, I had clarified the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution to nearly 100 police officers. I would like to thank Teacher for giving me the wisdom to clarify the truth to these people. It is because of Falun Dafa's mighty power and our compassionate Teacher's protection that I was able to clarify the truth to nearly 100 police officers fearlessly and confidently.

Another story occurred in May 2003 when I was illegally detained in Chengdu City Detention Center as a prisoner of conscience. One day in May, a disciplinary staff summoned me to step out of the cell. I saw a large number of fierce-looking police officers ahead, looking as if they were preparing to enter a major battle. There was also a medical doctor at the scene. In a pretentious manner the doctor said to me, "We are taking you to No. 3 Hospital for a cardiogram. If it turns out that you have a heart problem, we will release you home." Without giving you too many details of the story, I could only tell you that I knew they were planning a scheme. I refused to go with their scheme. I declared, "I am not going." and started to walk back to my cell. Then several police officers jumped on me and tried to take me to the hospital. Then suddenly I remembered Teacher's words.

Teacher said,

"Dafa Disciples' Righteous Thoughts are Powerful."

"No matter what the situation, do not cooperate with the evil's demands, orders, or what it instigates. If everyone does this the environment won't be this way."(From "Dafa Disciples' Righteous Thoughts are Powerful")

I calmed down right away and told them confidently, "I am a Falun Dafa cultivator. I am perfectly healthy. I did not commit any crime, so you should release me. I do not need any cardiogram." It appears that my righteous thoughts and actions had a subduing effect on their vicious mind because they released me right away.

I think it is because I have Falun Dafa and Teacher guiding me and protecting me that I have been determined in cultivating myself diligently, clarifying the truth and offering Teacher's salvation to my fellow Chinese people. I shall always remember Teacher's words:

"Do well with all the things you should do. All the most magnificent, most wonderful glory and honor of the future await you."
