(Clearwisdom.net) I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. It has changed my life completely over the last six years. My character has improved, my spirit has been purified, and I have come to a better understanding of the true meaning of life and changed many bad habits. All my incurable diseases have been healed and I've never gotten sick once in six years.
When Jiang's regime started to persecute Dafa, people from the "610 Office" took me to a brainwashing class and mentally tormented me until midnight. This has hurt me greatly. So, with the strong attachment to my family, I lost my righteous thoughts and followed an evil path. I also wrote the guaranty statements and many others that put a blemish on Dafa, for which I felt guilty towards Master and towards Dafa.
I was wrong! I now declare to the whole universe that everything I've said and written is all void. Cultivation is serious, and from now on I will put forth my best effort in studying the Fa and set high standards for myself. Whenever I meet a problem, I will look inward and correct my mistakes, to earn back what is lost and complete the three tasks Teacher has asked for us to do: study the Fa, explain the facts and send righteous thoughts. I will not miss this precious chance, will be responsible to myself and become a true cultivator!

I was arrested by local police on November 4, 2000 while distributing brochures and was illegally sentenced to one year of forced labor. Since I had not studied the Fa thoroughly then and had not assimilated to the Fa, I compromised under the police's influence, deceit and false kindness. This happened due to my attachment to fear and numerous other attachments as well as a weak main consciousness. For my own so-called happiness and freedom, I violated my own conscience and vow and betrayed Teacher. I suffered greatly in the detention center and every day was like a living hell. I nearly collapsed under the severe torture and destruction of my soul.
On March 30, 2001, I was released. I went home and was required to report to the police regularly. I was scared to face this reality; at home I lived like an ordinary person, yet my heart was always with Teacher and fellow practitioners. Later, with encouragement and help of fellow practitioners, I gradually picked up our revered Teacher's precious books, studied the Fa, did the exercises, clarified the facts and send forth righteous thoughts. It is our great and magnificent Teacher that once again rescued me from the brink of death. In reality, I know Teacher has already endured so much for us and has given us the best of everything. What excuses do I have to slack off on this road that Teacher has guided us on?
After this righteous realization I am determined to keep up with the Fa-rectification process. Hereby I solemnly declare that all the things I had said and done in the detention center that did not meet the standards of Dafa are void, including the "guarantee statement" that the police wrote in my name. I will do my best to make up for all the blemishes I had put on Dafa and will from now on steadfastly cultivate in Dafa to the end!
