Response to Selected Submissions: Hope That Everyone Will Benefit from Knowing the Facts about Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) May 13, 2012 marked the 20th anniversary of Falun Dafa's public introduction. Ever since the call was published by Minghui editors on Feb. 17, 2012, a large number of submissions has been received. The published submissions are carefully chosen artworks and true stories of Falun Gong practitioners and those who have learned the facts about Falun Gong.
These are touching real life stories. A 62-year-old man who had been blind in one eye for 31 years, regained his eyesight after practicing Falun Gong for two years and three months. A 35-year-old farmer from Hongxing Village, Harbin, had a malignant brain tumor. His doctor said he would only live for three to five more months. However, he became healthy again through practicing Falun Gong. Five years have passed, and his doctor is shocked by his miraculous recovery. A 70-year-old practitioner in Qiqihar was bed-ridden for 34 years after being disabled by a car accident. After two months of practicing Falun Gong, she was able to walk and take care of herself. Falun Gong has given many people new lives.
Countless people have regained their health and improved their morality by doing the exercises and conducting themselves according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, as taught in Master Li Hongzhi's book Zhuan Falun.
If it weren't for the Chinese Communist Party's persecution and its slanderous propaganda, more people would have had a chance to improve their health by practicing Falun Gong. Hasn't the persecution harmed all Chinese people?
Many submissions told stories of Falun Gong practitioners' good deeds. A 47-year-old Falun Gong practitioner is a workshop director. He doesn't take advantage of his position to get anything for himself. He even returned 5000 yuan that he had accepted as gift from a customer two months before he started practicing Falun Gong. If he had to borrow a lamp from the workshop, he replaced it with a new one. Another Falun Gong practitioner is a leader in his company. The company's accounting manager said, “This leader has never asked for reimbursement in the ten years that I have been working here. He never takes a penny's advantage from this company. He pays out of his own pocket.” Another practitioner had a business that sells chili powder. Many other businesses in the same trade mix fake chili powder into their products. He used to follow them so that his business could survive. After he started practicing Falun Gong, he stopped doing this. He planned to sell his last batch of pure chili powder and change this career. But retailers liked his pure chili power so much that they would rather pay more to get his powder. As a result, he was able to continue his business. Other businessmen then started to follow his example.
Falun Gong teaches people to improve their characters and morality by conducting themselves according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. It clearly points out doing bad things will make people lose virtue and gain karma, and that karma is the root of all misfortune, including illness. Those who know this principle would rather suffer losses themselves before harming others for their own gain. These people are who we need in today's society. If more people could practice Falun Gong and follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, the morality of our society would be restored. Everyone will benefit from it.
We hope more kindhearted people will benefit from reading the selected submissions in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Falun Dafa's public introduction.
