Recalling a Survey Conducted by the National Sports Directory in Harbin City in 1998
(Clearwisdom.net) In 1998, a division director, Qiu Yucai (who was also the general secretary of the National Qigong Association) of the National Sports Directory, led a team to Harbin to survey Falun Gong. A conference was arranged by the Heilongjiang Sports Directory at the Xiyuan Guest House in Harbin College of Technology. About a hundred people attended and there were six to seven speakers.
Speakers at the meeting included a teacher of post-doctorate students at Harbin College of Technology, who said his poor health had affected his research and teaching before he began cultivation, and that after cultivation, his health improved greatly and he got outstanding results in his work. A bureau chief talked about his understanding about the unification of matter and spirit. A businessman talked about how his mind changed regarding how to run a successful business: in the past he had relied on personal relationships to get ahead; now he relied on fair business practices. A director of the police bureau talked about his past wrongdoings, and that he operated justly after he began cultivation. Another person had gone astray and become a thief, but became a decent person again after cultivation. A deputy bureau chief who followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance raised objections to the city mayor's proposal, which saved 760 million yuan in a risky investment.
At the end the of the conference the national sports director, Mr. Qiu, said that Falun Gong's principles and methods all made sense and it was remarkably effective in curing illnesses. He also praised the practitioners for their speeches.
This conference presented more evidence that Jiang Zemin's persecution of Falun Gong was groundless and not supported by society. The whole world should put him on trial.
