Stories from China: People Are Learning and Spreading the Truth about Falun Gong
Chinese People Learn and Spread the Truth
A Falun Dafa practitioner was distributing VCDs that clarified the truth about Falun Dafa. When she reached a relative and friend's home, a visitor happened to be there. The visitor told the practitioner that he had recently seen the video and was quite shocked to learn the truth. He felt as if he had awakened from a deep sleep. He told her that he had already passed the disc on to others so they could see it and he asked if there were more VCDs available. At his request, the practitioner gave the discs she had with her to this predestined individual.
At another practitioner's home, a visitor commented that he had recently seen the truth clarification VCD and understood that Falun Gong had really endured a lot of hardships and injustice. He commented that practitioners' actions were really commendable. He had learned that many countries support Falun Gong around the world, and that Jiang Zemin was even going to be tried at the International Court. He felt that Falun Gong was really great and righteous, and suspected practitioners must have spent a lot of money to make the truth clarification VCDs available to the public. In order to express his support and appreciation, he wanted to contribute 2000 yuan for the production of more truth-clarification VCDs.
In the building of a state-owned company in Tangshan, Falun Gong truth-clarification posters and flyers are posted all around the company's courtyard. Sometimes, the posted materials remain untouched for as long as a month. An old man who did not know the facts about Falun Gong tried to tear down the material one time. A fellow citizen stopped him and asked, "Why would you want to destroy these posters? They are so elegant and artistically done." The old man repeated the lies and propaganda that he had heard. The other man explained to him, "Jang's gang and the Communist party have deceived society and harmed people. I think the courtyard should be covered with more Falun Gong posters to make it more beautiful." Someone recently brought the issue to the attention of the company's manager, claiming, "There are too many flyers and posters in the courtyard, and Falun Gong is also promoted within the company, encouraging new people to learn." The manager replied, "One can do as one's likes. There is no need to interfere with them."
Police Chief Protects Falun Gong Practitioners
A new police chief was transferred to the city where I live. A few days ago, he made an unexpected visit to another practitioner's home and said, "I am the newly transferred police chief for this area. As the end of the year approaches, we're getting a lot of pressure from our supervisors to monitor practitioners. Please tell your fellow practitioners to be cautious and hide your materials. Don't let the inspector from the institute see them when they come for inspection."
Public Prosecutor: "People are Welcome to Come to My Home to Learn the Practice of Falun Gong"
A few days ago, I visited a fellow practitioner's home. I met her husband who was a Public Prosecutor for the city. He told me that he knew Falun Gong was good. After practicing for only a few months, he enjoyed tremendous health benefits. Several illnesses that she had suffered in the past disappeared. He could see that following the teachings in Zhuan Falun and fulfilling the requirement of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" were beneficial to everybody. His spouse became more compassionate and more caring for their elderly family members. His family became more harmonious. Unfortunately, since July 20, 1999, after barely a year of practice, she was not allowed to continue to practice in public. Falun Gong practitioners were persecuted everywhere. He was afraid that the persecution would affect his wife. He knew that the police who were carrying out the persecution were extremely vicious, and that many innocent practitioners had been tortured to death, so he told her to study the Fa and continue the practice at home.
The man further indicated that, during the past two years of his visits abroad, he saw that Falun Gong was freely practiced and promoted everywhere, and that people abroad had rights, and freedom of belief. None of this was allowed within China's totalitarian dictatorship. Under this government, the situation is, "What those in power say, goes," and citizens have no rights whatsoever.
When I left, he told me sincerely that he supports Falun Gong. He also urged me to let people know they could come to his house to learn the exercises. He had no fear of anyone. If someone tried to create problems, he would reason with the person. He also praised and commented the greatness of Master Li, the founder of Falun Gong, for introducing the practice to so many countries around the world.
I was greatly touched by his sincere words. Many government officials are beginning to realize the truth and awaken. I am really happy for them.
