Solemn Declarations from Two Dafa Practitioners
When my grandson tried to register to become a soldier at our local police station, he was denied. The police chief told him, “Your grandma is a Falun Gong practitioner. All practitioners' relatives are prohibited from serving in the military.” My grandson came to me with his mother that afternoon and asked me to attest to the authorities that I would stop practicing Falun Gong. Thinking that it was just a formality that ordinary people use, I agreed, so that he could be registered. I realized afterward that I made a mistake. I cried deeply, feeling that I was no longer worthy of being saved by Master. I then calmed down and looked inside myself. I found the shortcomings of 1) lack of steadfast Fa study; 2) failure to completely believe in Master and the Fa; and 3) strong attachments to sentiment, personal gain, fear, and weak righteous thoughts in the face of tribulations. From now on, I will devote myself to and concentrate on studying the Fa more. I will completely eliminate bad thoughts and desires, and follow Master's instructions to do the three things well and save more sentient beings. I solemnly declare that everything I have done that did not comply with the standards of the Fa is null and void. I will work hard to make up for the harm I caused to Dafa and firmly cultivate Dafa to the end.

I was illegally arrested and taken to a brainwashing center on November 13, 2011. I used righteous thoughts to resist all of the evils' lies during the first few days, but I later yielded to their demands and signed the “five statements” renouncing Falun Dafa. I did a wrong thing, which a Dafa practitioner should not do, and left a stain on my cultivation path. This has caused damage to Dafa. Thankfully, Master didn't give up on me after I was released and arranged some fellow practitioners to help me. After experience sharing with fellow practitioners and calmly thinking it through, I realized that I had mistakenly followed the path arranged by the old forces. I also didn't completely believe in Master and the Fa, didn't firmly study the Fa, and didn't let go of attachments to emotion and fear. I deeply regret my failure to completely negate the old forces and feel unworthy of being saved by merciful Master and Dafa. I solemnly declare that everything I have done in the brainwashing center which was not in accordance with Dafa principles is null and void. I will cleanse the stains with correct actions and do the three things well. I will diligently study the Fa and cultivate myself well. I will catch up with the Fa-rectification and follow Master back home.
