Grand Compassion Is the Foundation for Saving People

By a Falun Dafa practitioner from Jilin City

On August 20, 2004, I went on an errand on a bike and was bumped by a taxi. The taxi was driving very fast when suddenly a passenger on the side of the road waved him down. The taxi quickly backed into the pedestrian lane. To avoid being hit by him, I quickly retreated to the middle of the road, which made it hard for the car behind to avoid me. Even so, the taxi still bumped into me and I heard a sudden "bang." When the driver found out that he had bumped into somebody, he was shocked. I was very calm and had no fear at that moment. Just like Teacher said in Zhuan Falun, "Nobody who runs into this type of thing gets scared." The taxi driver held my hands and wouldn't let go. He was very scared. Compassion grew in my heart. I said peacefully that I was a Falun Gong practitioner. He immediately looked relieved. He continued to hold my hands tightly and wouldn't let them go. I said, "You have met a kind person. Go ahead and pick up your customer. I will be fine."

A Mother and Daughter Guard the Portrait of Teacher

By a Falun Dafa Practitioner from Zhaoyuan County, Shandong Province

On October 1, 2001, the police and people from the county government, numbering over a dozen, again ransacked the home of my neighbor, a Falun Dafa practitioner. At that time, only two children were at home, a 12-year-old girl and her brother, who was 10. The perpetrators climbed into the courtyard over the walls and forcibly took the portrait of Teacher. They slapped the boy when he came to protect the portrait. Just then, their mother came home. Seeing that Teacher's portrait was being forcibly taken down, she said sternly, "Stop! Everybody freeze!" All the people present were shocked. She took the portrait and ran out through the back door. Behind the house was a steep hill with a dense grove of bushes and trees. The practitioner jumped into the grove without hesitation. The police dared not follow for fear of being poked by the thorns.

When the police returned, the girl was holding a small portrait of Teacher. They tried to take it from her. She cried out loudly and held onto the portrait tightly. She ran off and hid herself in the grass when the police were not looking. They looked around for her but did not find her. Frustrated, the police left. In the evening, their mother returned home safely without a scratch on her body.

Water That Has Feelings

A Falun Dafa practitioner from a village in Shenyang Town, Dehui City, Jilin Province has a well in her yard. The water was clear and sweet. Since the beginning of the persecution of Falun Gong by Jiang's faction on July 20, 1999, she succumbed to the pressure of the persecution and stopped practicing Falun Dafa. From that time on, the water in the well became cloudy and was no longer sweet. The water would only be drinkable after a lot of rainfall.

Early in 2004, this woman resumed cultivating Falun Dafa. Shortly after she resumed studying the teachings of Falun Dafa, the water returned to its former pristine state.
