Validating the Fa in the Process of Rescuing Fellow Practitioners
(Minghui.org) I am an elderly practitioner in my 80s. I obtained the Fa in 1998 ,and I greatly cherish it. I study the Fa eagerly and follow the Fa's requirements to fulfill my vows on the path of assisting Master to save sentient beings. Here I'd like to share my experiences.
During the Beijing Olympics in 2008, the police illegally arrested my fellow practitioners. I regarded fellow practitioners' things as my own, so I went to the detention center and police station every day to clarify the facts to the police. I asked them to unconditionally release the practitioners. I decided that I would go talk to them every day until they released my fellow practitioners.
I told the police that all of the political movements such as the Great Cultural Revolution, the Tiananmen Square Massacre and the suppression of Falun Gong are crimes committed by the communist regime. Some police officers agreed with me. After more than a month of effort, one practitioner was released from the detention center. Regretfully, the other three were illegally sentenced.
In the process of rescuing fellow practitioners, I enlightened that if we do not have the concept of being persecuted in our mind, the evil cannot take advantage of the loophole. When Dafa disciples are truly on the Fa, the evil is really afraid of us. No matter how difficult it is to rescue fellow practitioners, as Dafa disciples we cannot shrink back. The rescue is also a process of saving sentient beings, since all beings have come for the Fa. Thus, I am determined to continue the effort.
Once, several practitioners went to a small town to distribute truth clarification brochures. In the afternoon, someone reported them to the police and two female practitioners were arrested. I immediately went to the police station and then to the detention center to clarify the facts to the police involved and urge them to release the practitioners. I told them the Chinese Constitution stipulates that citizens have freedom of belief, but the Communist Party's agents are like bandits. I told them how police broke into a female practitioner's home and robbed her of more than 5,000 yuan worth of property, etc. After days of truth clarification and demanding that these two practitioners be released, one was released. The other one, however, was sent to a forced labor camp. I felt very sad.
A practitioner was arrested by police in the summer of 2012. As soon as I heard this, I immediately went to the police station. In order to let more police officers hear the truth, I spoke loudly and clearly. Many officers showed sympathy and understanding, and said they would not participate in the persecution of Falun Gong anymore. Some officers even said, “I think Falun Gong practitioners are doing a good thing.”
In the winter of 2012, a few practitioners were arrested and imprisoned in a detention center for a long time. During that period, despite the cold weather and long distance, I went to the 610 Office and the Domestic Security Division almost every day and compassionately asked those involved to stop the persecution and do good deeds. After over a month of continuous effort, the practitioners were released.
I deeply felt the magnificent power of compassion.
It was just as Master said:
“Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in spring Righteous thoughts can save the people in this world ” (“The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos” in Hong Yin Vol. II)
As Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples, our responsibility is to validate Dafa and offer people salvation. I will put in my full effort as long as it is required by the Fa-rectification. I believe that clarifying the facts to the law enforcement officials during the process of rescuing fellow practitioners is the path arranged by Master for me, as well as my own choice.
I used to suffer from all kinds of illnesses and could not take care of myself. Now I am very healthy and don't even feel tired, even after walking a long time. Master has given me a new life, but I know it's for me to validate the Fa and save sentient beings, rather than to live an everyday person's life. I must solidly follow Master's requirements in return for Master's grand mercy.
