(Minghui.org) Today I'd like to take this opportunity to repent on the Minghui website after burning Dafa books. I plead guilty to Master and hope that the Chinese people will learn a lesson from me and respect Falun Dafa, and treasure Dafa books and materials. They are the only hope for our salvation and entry into the future.
My eighty-year-old mother has been practicing Dafa for almost twenty years. Not long after she started practicing Falun Gong, she recovered from all the diseases she had. She hasn't been on medication for the last 20 years. Occasionally she would feel unwell, but it quickly went away. She had a stroke this year, causing her mouth to become crooked, and her eyes to squint. All the family members tried to persuade her to see the doctor. She said she didn't have any problem, and sure enough, she was back to normal in ten days.
My mother is healthy and energetic. She keeps the house clean and tidy. During the holidays, we get together and she cooks a banquet for us. We feel so blessed and know that Falun Dafa has brought such fortune to us. We know Falun Dafa is wonderful and we support our mother.
I have read Zhuan Falun several times as well as other Dafa materials. Because I live near my mother, she keeps telling me her cultivation stories whenever I visit her. I know that this is the great Fa of the universe, and it saves people in this Dharma-ending period. I know human beings didn't come from apes. Gods and Buddhas are advanced, intelligent beings in this vast universe and they created the cosmos, manage the cosmos, and protect the human world.
Of the famous scientists who have won Nobel prizes, 96 percent are theists. Their view is that “the universe is a masterpiece created by God.” I agree with this theory. Dafa has changed my perspective of the world and awakened me from lies and misconceptions.
Most religions and prophecies reveal that there will be a big catastrophe in the human world in this period of time, yet there is a way to survive it. The Buddhist Sutra said that when the Udumbara flowers blossom, the Holy King Who Turns the Wheel will descend to the world to save sentient beings.
I know that Falun Dafa is the great way and that the Holy King Who Turns the Wheel is spreading it to save people. Millions upon millions of Dafa disciples are the people who are doing extremely good deeds and are God's messengers to save people all over the world from catastrophe.
My elderly mother had only two years of primary school education. She was almost illiterate. Soon after she started practicing Dafa, she could read all of the Dafa books and lectures. What was more miraculous was that some illiterate elderly people could read Dafa books after they practiced Dafa, but when the same words appeared in other places they could not read them. How can we interpret this phenomenon? Isn't it clear that Gods and Buddhas are strengthening them?
Some people say that Falun Gong practitioners are getting political. I thought about this for some time, then I had to ask them: A lot of Falun Gong practitioners are like my elderly mother and started to practice Falun Gong because they had illnesses. Why would Falun Gong use them to get involved in politics? Is there any politician who is able to make one hundred million people free of illness as well as give illiterate people the ability to read? Do ordinary people, whether they are Presidents or scientists, have such abilities? I would like to say that Falun Dafa is an extraordinary science. Only a high-level being can achieve that.
One day my mother was arrested while she was distributing Falun Gong materials. The whole family was terrified. I hid all the Dafa books. Several hours later she came back. She asked for her Dafa books and I gave her several.
I worried about my mother's safety all day. Out of fear of the CCP because I knew its cruelty, I burned all the Dafa books one day. My mother became extremely agonized when she learned of it. It was unbearable for her. No words could describe how upset she was. I became deeply regretful when I saw my mother. I could not face her because I hurt her too much. My mother said to me in tears: “You have committed a huge sin. This is a universal law. You have read the books and many other materials. Why haven't you understood? What have you done? Where will you go in the future? How can you continue to live?”
I was awakened by her words and realized that I had committed a heinous sin. Dafa is coming to save me before the catastrophe, but I burned Dafa books. Where could I possibly go?
I would be punished down to the deepest hell. I was so terrified by the CCP. It was dreadful. I felt extremely guilty and remorseful. I regretted it so much. My mother asked me to kneel down in front of Master's photo to repent. So I knelt down in front of Master's photo and deeply repented. My mother finally said: “Get up now. It has been half an hour.” I said to her that I would continue kneeling down. Finally I said to Master: “Master, please give me a chance for redemption.”
So I wrote this article. If it can be published on the website and people can learn a lesson from me, it might be a chance of redemption for me.
Finally I would like to announce to the whole world: “Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is good!”.
