Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions
A diligent Falun Dafa practitioner: Prior to his practice of Falun Gong, Maomao suffered from a series of health problems from inhaling carbon monoxide. However, he recovered completely after obtaining Falun Dafa. One day, as he was riding his bicycle home, he was thrown into the air when he was hit by a car and landed over 10 meters away. The driver was very scared and wanted to take him to a hospital. Maomao said that he was a Falun Dafa practitioner and he was fine. Then Maomao told the driver that he could go. The driver was very touched and said, "Falun Gong practitioners are so kind!" Maomao said, "Please don't thank me. It is our Teacher who taught me to do so." On July 20, 1999, Maomao, who was originally not very outgoing, started spreading Falun Dafa and clarifying the truth about Dafa. His workplace leader, using him as a warning to others, criticized him and increased his workload for practicing Falun Gong, but this did not prevent Maomao from persisting in his practice. When he went to Tiananmen Square to practice Falun Gong and appeal for Falun Gong, he was arrested. After he was set free, he continued to clarify the truth. He sent out letters, distributed video CDs and hung Dafa banners. In August 2001, he hung more than 120 one-meter long banners in a big park in his city. In October 2001, he put up some truth-clarifying posters and for this he was illegally sent to a forced labor camp.
The Truth and People's Hearts
A letter to China's Internet administrators: You have the most direct and convenient way to objectively learn the truth about Falun Gong. Unfortunately, some of you are still participating in defaming and persecuting Falun Gong. I really feel concerned about your future. I sincerely hope you will calmly and carefully think about your futures. Falun Dafa is right in front of you.
News from China
One evening in 2000, Ren Pengwu and I went to a residence complex to put up truth-clarifying posters. That was my first time and I felt so fearful that my hands were shaking. Pengwu said, "Let me paste the poster, please watch out for me." When we went to a hospital and a post office to put p the posters, a few police officers were patrolling right behind us. They shone their flashlights on us. Pengwu quickly walked into the flashlight's beam, which gave me time to hide the posters in some bushes. They did not find anything and let us go.
Taipei -- December 14 (China Times) -- The Hong Kong SAR government's proposal to introduce Article 23 of the Basic Law has aroused great concern in the international society and the Hong Kong people's ire. If the legislation is passed, it will not only harm Hong Kong citizens' human rights and freedoms, but also prove that the "One country, Two systems" policy is not being respected. Furthermore, it will damage Hong Kong's economy. The Far Eastern Economic Review pointed out that if the proposed law is enacted, Hong Kong's over 50 years of flourishing economy will be sacrificed, and will further prove that the "One country, Two systems" promise was actually empty talk.
History repeats itself. Comparing the ruthless persecution encountered by Christianity and Christians in the past to the persecution that Falun Gong practitioners are currently facing, history is astonishingly being repeated. Dear friends, no matter what you believe, please do not be against Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance, because these are the fundamental characteristics of the universe. Please also let your family members and your friends know the truth about Falun Gong. Falun Dafa will bring all kind-hearted people a wonderful future!
