Solemn Declarations by Dafa Practitioners
I started practicing Falun Dafa at the end of 1996. Because I did not have a deep understanding of Dafa and I was not so diligent in studying the Fa, when the persecution began on July 20, 1999, I was unable to understand the Fa from the basis of the Fa. I believed the vicious lies and had doubts about Dafa and Teacher. I also went against Dafa in my words and actions. Later, with Teacher's compassionate guidance and help from fellow practitioners, I gradually understood the lies and slanderous propaganda for what they were. I saw the righteous thoughts and deeds of practitioners during the persecution. While I was deeply moved by their peaceful protest and offering salvation to sentient beings, I also saw my own attachments. I hereby solemnly declare: All I have said before due to the evil lies are invalid. I will never recognize the arrangements of the old forces. I will be determined and diligent in cultivation and make up for the loss I have caused to Dafa.

Ever since I started practicing Dafa in 1996, I have been very healthy. I need to thank Teacher and Dafa. On January 1, 2000, I was detained and extorted out of 1,300 yuan for appealing for justice for Falun Dafa in Beijing. On January 22, 2001, six or seven police officers broke into my home and arrested me, and then ransacked my home. My mother, ninety-two years old and unable to care for herself, was terrified. I was sentenced to two years in a labor camp. During my detention, my mother passed away because she was so terrified. On March 19, 2001, the Dalian Detention Center carried out extremely violent torture of Dafa practitioners. Well-equipped police officers beat up practitioners. Some practitioners' chins had charcoal-like burns resulting from the electric shocks. Others were handcuffed to the metal window frames. After pulling up their shirts over their heads, the police whipped practitioners and shocked them with electric batons. As a result, their bodies from the waist to the knees were covered with wounds and bruises. They had loose bowels and suffered loosened and lost teeth. Amidst this horrible violence, against my will, I wrote the guarantee denouncing Dafa. I betrayed Teacher and Dafa. In order to cover up their crime, the Dalian Detention Center deceived people with lies. They made up programs of "transformation through re-education." They forced me to be interviewed by TV stations and praise the police on a "true feeling station" program. I was also forced to make a speech in the so-called "Farewell to Yesterday and Welcome the Future" program. I knew that I had committed insurmountable crimes against Teacher and felt shameful. The mental pain is thousands of times worse than the physical suffering. Upon returning from Dalian Detention Center, I fell into a state of guilt, despair and sadness. Under the compassionate guidance from Teacher and with great help from fellow practitioners, I woke up from the deviated path and realized the persecution that the old forces had put upon me. I also realized that many innocent people who listen to the radio or watch TV are poisoned by the lies. I hereby solemnly declare: Anything I said or did that does not conform to the requirements of Dafa is invalid. I will make up for the loss I have caused. During the last phase of Fa-rectification, I will do the three things well, follow Teacher and keep up with the pace of Fa-rectification.
