The Truth About "Reform" in Prisons
Zhu Tong, a lecturer at Qinghua University spoke about the "Reform" of Dr. Teng Chunyan. Based on his own experience of one and a half years in a Chinese prison he stated that the jails use various methods to torture and destroy a practitioner's spirit through a variety of means, including isolation, threatening family members, coercion, intimidation, sleep deprivation, and stripping them of the basics they need to survive.
Two Brief Cultivation Experiences
Partners of living and fellow practitioners of cultivation: I got to know my wife after July 20, 1999. One day, a practitioner came to my home to "chat": "There is a girl at our site who is really firm in cultivating Dafa. She has been to Tianamen a few times and was very firm and strong while detained at the police station. Even the police had to respect her." My mother suddenly had a thought: she might be my future daughter-in-law.
Pure righteous thoughts are powerful: One day, the police and the apartment owner suddenly came to inspect a practitioner's room. Teacher's photo, Dafa books, and other equipment for producing truth-clarifying materials were in the room. The practitioner immediately sent forth righteous thoughts and silently recited Master's Fa-rectification verse. As a result, the police and the owner walked around the room but found nothing and left.
On October 27, I went to Tiananmen Square to fulfill my pledge signed with Master at a prehistoric time. The experience of nine days' detention for the Fa rectification made me truly enlighten to the real meaning of what Master said: "The path a Dafa disciple takes is a glorious history, and this history has to be created by his own enlightening." ("Path")
The Story of Wenwen, a Young Practitioner: Wenwen is 7 years old, cultivating with her parents since she was little. She always says she can see Master. According to her, Master tells her to study the Fa well. Her friends who were poisoned by the media bully her. After a while, through Wenwen's efforts, the situation has changed. Wenwen told her friends: "I will not play with anyone who says Falun Dafa is bad."
Latest News From China -- 11/28/2001
Today, 114 people made solemn announcements that all the statements spoken, done, or written against Dafa's dignity under the evil pressure are all void. They expressed their understanding that doing deeds to show disrespect to the Fa under whatever circumstances is committing a crime against Dafa, and is a betrayal of Teacher. These people will firmly stride forth on the cultivation path to clean up the smear and shame, and will work tirelessly to make up the loss caused to Dafa.

Big red balloons holding up banners that said, "Falun Dafa is good" were floating over the playing field during a sporting event at the university.

During the closing ceremony, more balloons floated over the field, carrying banners with words like "The Buddha-light illuminates everywhere" "Falun rotates constantly," nd "Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance." Some of the balloons floated into view and landed on the banner in front of the rostrum.
