A Man from the Countryside Clarifies the Truth about Dafa to University Leaders
(Clearwisdom.net) One day I received a phone call from the university where my son goes. "Please come to the university," he said. I asked him what it was about and he replied; "Your son is in trouble at university because he practices Falun Gong. Please come at your earliest convenience." When I got off the phone, the first thought that popped into my head was; "Here comes an opportunity to clarify the truth about Dafa." I didn't get nervous. I felt very relaxed. I wondered why I didn't have my usual thoughts of being afraid of talking with educated persons. Then, I realized it was the power of righteous thoughts. When we are whole-heartedly thinking of clarifying the truth about Dafa to the society and saving people without any personal interests, the evil factors hindering us from doing it must disappear.
Arriving at my son's university, I met with the Principal, Associate Principal, Secretary and Associate Secretary. They told me, "Your son has been isolated from classes." I asked them, "Why? What mistakes has he made?" The Secretary explained to me, "He talked about Falun Gong among classmates. Now he even speaks publicly in classes. He talks about whatever he called '"truth"' and such behavior has become a serious political issue. I hope you can help him correct his behavior as soon as possible."
I kindly smiled and replied, "All of you are teachers and have good wishes to educate the youngsters to be moral, honest, knowledgeable, capable, and useful to our country. Isn't that right?" They nodded in agreement. I continued, "Nowadays moral standards in our society are on a big downward slide and social order is deteriorating. Under such circumstances, a group of people following the standards of 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance' show up. They strive to be the best people in the world! What's wrong with that? There are over 100 million Falun Dafa practitioners in over 60 countries throughout the world. Falun Dafa received over 1,000 proclamations from different countries and is highly respected. Only in China do some individuals use their political power to slander, defame and mercilessly crackdown on Falun Dafa. In order to clear the names of Dafa and its practitioners, my son tells the truth about Dafa to make people understand the facts. What's wrong with that?"
They looked ashamed when hearing this. Probably they were surprised that I, a man from the countryside, could raise such questions that highly educated people found hard to answer. After a while the Secretary asked, "If Falun Dafa is as you described, why do practitioners kill people? Why did they self-immolate at Tiananmen Square?" I still kept smiling and replied, "If somebody beat you up for no reason, stuffed your mouth and locked you up in a dark cell without any daylight, then went into the street and claimed that you beat him up, wouldn't the by-standers, who don't know what really happened, would believe what they were told and think that you were wrong. Is that fair? Falun Dafa teaches 'that '"practitioners should not take the lives of other beings."' How would they kill people?"
Next, I explained to them the evidence and suspicious points in the Tiananmen Square self-immolation and the murders the propaganda alleges practitioners have committed. They paid attention to what I said and some continuously nodded. The Associate Secretary said, "Oh, that's what happened." The Secretary glanced at the Principal and said, "So let's do this. We'll stop now for today. After listening to your speech, I understand many things that I didn't understand before. Thank you for coming. Your son doesn't have to be isolated any more. He can go back to classes as normal. But, please ask him not to clarify the truth publicly in the classes." I said; "I'll tell him to be rational, to clarify the truth with his wisdom and not cause any trouble for you. Also, I want you to remember forever that Falun Dafa is good, and that Falun Dafa is righteous." They replied, "Of course, of course, and good bye." We shook hands with one another.
