Protecting Falun Dafa Books and Materials with Wisdom
(Clearwisdom.net) A policeman searched an elderly practitioner's home and said to her, “Ma'am, you are truly amazing.”
One day in the fall of 2002, my husband and I had just returned from my son's home less than five minutes before, when a policeman called and said he was coming over. Actually, the police car had been parked by the side of our building for over four hours. They had been waiting at the Communist Party Neighborhood Committee. They had arranged for a neighbor to inform them when we returned home. Two policemen arrived. One took my husband, who is also a practitioner, to the Neighborhood Committee to interrogate him. The other one wanted to speak with me.
The policeman said he wanted to look around our apartment. I asked what he was looking for. He said he just wanted to look. I said, “Aren't you going to search it and confiscate things?” He said, “You needn't mention such unpleasantness. Can't I just look around?” I said, “Since you just want to look, I kind of cannot say no. But there is something I need to say. You are going to search and confiscate things from my home without a search warrant. That is against the law.” He said, “Getting a search warrant is easy. I just didn't bring one with me. I can take care of it later.” He thoroughly searched every nook and cranny, including boxes, cupboards, drawers, under the beds, and even shoe boxes. He found a copy of Zhuan Falun.
When he started to search my son's room, I said, “This is my son and daughter-in-law's room. You can look around but you can't touch anything.” When he saw a computer, he asked, “Is this yours?” I said, “Everything in this room belongs to my son and daughter-in-law. None of it is mine.” He asked, “Do you surf the net?” I said “What net? I don't see any net.” He laughed and said, “You don't understand." He turned around and went back to my room. He opened a cabinet and found a pile of printed material that he was about to grab. I said, “You can't take those.” He asked, “Why?” I said that my son had brought those materials from Japan. “If you mess them up, it will be difficult for him to find what he needs. It will also negatively effect his work.” He laughed and said, “You're really funny. I'll just look at the one on top. Is that O.K?” I said, “That's fine.” He noticed that it was written in a foreign language and said that he couldn't understand it. He left the pile intact.
He picked up my copy of Zhuan Falun and asked, “Do you have more copies?” I said, “Yes, but you can't take them.” He said, “That's not possible. If you have any, I certainly will take them. Tell me where they are.” I said, “The book is inside of me. Can you take it?” He said, “What does that mean?” I said, “I have memorized the book. Can you take it?” He laughed and said, “I don't believe you. You recite and I will listen.” I said, “O.K. You look at the book and I will recite it from the beginning.” He carefully looked at the book while I recited Lunyu. I had recited half of it when he said, “Stop. You haven't missed a word. You've convinced me. I believe you.” I said, “Don't hurry. I haven't finished yet. Give your boss a call and tell him you will need to be here for three days for me to finish reciting Zhuan Falun.” He stood up and asked while walking around my room, “How old are you?” I told him that I was 61. He said, “You're that old and have been able to memorize such a thick book without missing a single character. What kind of gong did you use?” I said, “I used a genuine gong. Zhuan Falun explains the principles of being an upright person and teaches one how to become a better and better person. Not only have I have benefited from reading this book, my children and relatives have benefited as well. Good is rewarded and evil is punished. All the generations in my family are good people. Heaven will reward us and keep us out of harm's way. Don't you think this book is worth memorizing?” There was nothing that he could say. After awhile he said, “Do you have other materials?” I said, “Yes. I have memorized other materials and would be glad to recite them, if you would like to listen.” He asked who had given them to me. I said it wasn't important who gave them to me. I told him, “If it is literature that teaches people how to become better, I accept as much I am given. I don't ask where it came from. It's enough to know that I have benefited from it.” I could see that he was very moved. He said when he left, “Madam, you are amazing! I hope you understand why I came today. Please go ahead and practice in your home if you think that this practice and this book are good. You won't have any trouble if you don't get together with others.” I said, “I did not get together with others, yet didn't you come to search my home today?” He said, “You can relax. No one will come again.”
After this no one came to our home again to interfere.
Dafa Books Are Safest at Home
My husband and I began practicing Falun Dafa before the persecution began in July 1999. Both of us were assistants at a practice site. The number of people practicing increased every day in those years. Every assistant had extra copies of Falun Dafa books for new practitioners. My husband and I had a few dozen copies of Falun Dafa books, including Zhuan Falun, Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa, and The Great Consummation Way of Falun Dafa. We realized the necessity of protecting Falun Dafa books after the evil persecution began on July 20, 1999. In China, most families have small homes. Where was the safest place to keep the books? It was a big concern. When I was at my wits' end about what to do, I had a dream. A thunderstorm was approaching and I saw a flash of lightning that opened up the sky. Three large Falun immediately covered the three windows of my home. There was a golden light shining into my room. I woke up and realized that I had been dreaming. I knew that Master was helping me to enlighten. The safest place to keep Dafa books is in the home. Our Falun Dafa books were safe and secure during the next few house searches that followed. There weren't any losses.
The path that we have followed in our cultivation has been bumpy. We should not stop practicing cultivation just because the path is bumpy, frightening, painful, or joyous. We must diligently do the three things that Master has instructed us to do until we reach consummation.
