Drawings: Establishing the Righteous Way in the Human World: Zuo Zhigang Completes His Journey

September 06, 2001 |  

1. Zuo Zhigang was a 33 year-old male Dafa practitioner from Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province. He obtained Dafa in 1994. 2. He had set the wedding day to be May 31, 2001. The whole family was preparing for the wedding ceremony.
3. However on May 30 at about 3pm, the authorities of the Jiaoxi District police substation of Shijiazhuang City took Zuo away from his company and detained him in the Xinghua police precinct of Qiaoxi District, notorious for its extremely bad treatment of Dafa practitioners. 4. In the meantime, the police also confiscated his computer from the company claiming that they suspected Zuo used the office computer to get onto the internet. His parents' home was also searched. 5. On the afternoon of May 31, 2001, the Xinghua Police Station authorities told Zuo's family that Zuo had committed suicide by hanging himself.
6.áPeople from the notorious police station who knew about Zuo's case and knew what happened at the station verified later that Zuo's facial appearance was kind and calm, but he appeared exhausted. His face was swollen, and his right ear was seriously bruised. There were two symmetrical rectangular indentations in his back, and evidence showed that his neck had been tightly wound with fine rope. 7. The Xinghua Police Station personnel gave dubious accounts of Zuo's death: "After finishing Zuo's interrogation from 7PM to 9PM, a very good discussion, they allowed Zuo to sleep. They had no idea that Zuo would commit suicide on May 31, in the morning, between 7:20 AM and 7:40 AM, by using half a section of a shirt sleeve to hang himself from the iron fence gate. Regarding the rectangular indentations on Zuo's back, the police explained that they came from the nails on the gate. 8. Examination of this iron "suicide gate" revealed a discrepancy in the police story: the gate that Zuo supposedly had used to commit "suicide" is approximately 1.6 meters in height (approximately 5' 5" tall), and Zuo's height is 1.72 meters (approximately 5' 10"). Moreover, the marks on Zuo's back are rectangular. It seems impossible that round nails found on this gate would leave rectangular-shaped marks. It becomes obvious that all the police lied. We are pretty sure that someone else strangled Zuo after he had already been killed to make it look like suicide. The police did not issue a death certificate listing the cause of death, using the excuse that they could not find a coroner to examine Zuo's body.
9. When the news of Zuo's death spread, many of the young men among his relatives and friends also cried often, even the people who had just met him once or twice. 10. People kept coming to visit Zuo's family, and even a relative over 80 years old was also escorted there to pay his respects, which moved everyone at the scene. It was at this moment that everybody realized that Zuo had done many good deeds. 11. He had helped many people by repairing their television sets in his spare time, free of charge.
12. Without any complaint, he took care of a friend who was injured in an accident and was lying in the hospital, even though this friend had once deeply hurt him. He quietly left after his friend recovered. He also once looked after one very sick family member without second thoughts, and had reunited the good feelings in a previously estranged family. 13. He was also very responsible in his work, and was an important staff member in his work unit. His company has been rated No.1 two years in a row in Phillip monitor post sale customer satisfactory. He and another fellow worker were the only ones responsible for this job. 14. He also demanded a very high standard of himself and led a very thrifty life, which is rarely seen in China among people whose salary is more than 1,000 Yuan a month.
15. His caring for his parents was also very admirable. On the morning that Zuo was taken away, because it was raining, he called his parents about the condition of the skylight he had just fixed. His parents told him that the skylight was not leaking. Zuo said, "I'm relieved to know that it is not leaking." These were his last words to his family. 16. Without any brave words he quietly died, but his death gave rise to inexhaustible, mournful thoughts among all the kind-hearted people who knew him. Perhaps he wanted to leave a legacy for his family and the common people: the melted candle wax before his photograph formed two lotus flowers, about 10 centimeters in diameter, after the two candles had burned down. This phenomenon happened on two consecutive days.

17. Some of his family members even saw him in a dream, standing at the side of Master's giant Law Body [a body made of gong and Fa] and smilingly waving his hand to everyone. This was Dafa practitioner, Zuo Zhigang, who silently finished his path in the human world and fulfilled his true purpose.
