Clarifying the Truth at the Foot of a Mountain
(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in May, 1996.
I live at the foot of a big mountain. After the Jiang regime mobilized the whole country to persecute Falun Dafa in 1999, I was detained in a detention center twice because I stepped forward to validate the Fa. Another practitioner and I clarified the truth about Falun Gong to the inmates and staff, including the director of the detention center. The director was deceived by the CCP propaganda and was against Falun Dafa. He shouted at us, “How dare you speak this way here?”
The Fa gave me wisdom. I told him that I wouldn't be concerned about him if he were not a friend of my relative. He was a bit surprised and asked me who my relative was. I told him. He changed his attitude and told me to be careful. I told him not to forget his wife when he was saved by learning the facts about Falun Dafa. He said “Oh.” He then asked the cook in the kitchen to give us two buns. I realized that Master was encouraging us. (Later, I learned that because practitioners kept telling him the facts about Falun Dafa, he eventually started practicing himself and left the detention center.)
Because I refused to be transformed, my village leaders asked my husband, who worked in another city, to come back home. They threatened him and forced him to write a divorce statement. I cried. My daughter was young and my family was breaking up, though I hadn't done anything wrong. I would not betray Master. Dafa teaches people to be good. What was wrong with that? Several days later I was released. My husband's friend wrote a guarantee statement. Many people knew that Falun Dafa is good, but they tried to deceive others in order to keep their jobs.
I slacked off in my cultivation for several years after I came home. I was in agony and depression. With the help of fellow practitioners, I awakened and started to tell people the facts about Falun Dafa. I'd like to share with you some of my stories.
My family has a rice and noodle processing factory. Before I practiced Falun Dafa, I always charged a small fee on top of the normal price. I learned from Falun Dafa that it wasn't right to do that. Since then, I sometimes give people a discount in order to save them. If a client was in poor health, I would pick up the rice at their home and send the finished product back. Because of my kindness and high quality product, I became well known. People from neighboring villages also came to me. If my shop was closed, they waited rather than go to other shops. I laid a good foundation for clarifying the truth to them.
Every time the village leadership changes, they buy votes. I used to sell my vote, but now I tell them that I will vote for them only if they believe that Falun Dafa is good and do not persecute practitioners. Many leaders acknowledge practitioners, but some pretend they don't know about Falun Gong or do harmful deeds. One day I was looking after my granddaughter and saw the village leader show two policemen to a practitioner's house. The door was locked. I scolded them.
The leader pointed at the practitioner's home as if to say they didn't come to my home. I told him: “They are busy at work! Only you people have nothing to do.” The two policemen asked him who I was. He told them that I practiced Falun Gong as well. After dinner, I went to his home to tell him more about Falun Gong because I felt I didn't let him know the facts well enough. I told him that whoever sold out good people would be punished and end up in misery. The next day police wanted to come to my home, but he led them to my husband's brother's home, which they had moved away from a long time ago. At that time I was holding a small-scale painting exhibition.
I saw on the internet that overseas practitioners hold painting exhibitions to save sentient beings. So I printed out six large pictures about the Divine Land Marching Band and organ harvesting atrocities, and put them on the wall in one hall. People from different villages came to my processing factory and as I helped them withdraw from the CCP, I showed them the pictures so that they would learn more of the truth. I bought over thirty audio units for people to borrow and listen to the facts about Falun Gong. They became popular. One day I gave one unit to the village leader. Other villagers grabbed it and said: “Let us listen first.” The leader laughed!
One day as I walked past a team of road workers, I went to the team leader, who is in his thirties, and talked to him. He was from my hometown. I chatted with him a bit and then clarified the truth to him. I also said: “Your workers have a predestined relationship with you. They also need to be saved.” So he led me to see his workers. I clarified the truth to them and helped them withdraw from the CCP. They were predestined people that Master arranged to be saved.
One day I received a call from my uncle, inviting me to his wife's birthday party. I rarely saw this uncle, so I realized that it was no accident. I clarified the truth to those who had come for the birthday party in the morning. I clarified the truth to more people in a restaurant at lunch time. The people at one table believed in Buddhism and didn't want to listen to me. I was a bit concerned.
My uncle went to their table at the end of lunch, where he made a toast and wished everybody good health. I asked him if they were our relatives. He said yes. Then I said to them: “If you can save your life when the catastrophe comes, only then can you keep your health. Please remember 'Falun Dafa is good' so that you will be safe and healthy.” My uncle said: “Yes, please remember 'Falun Dafa is good'.” Everyone at the table raised their cups and toasted “Falun Dafa is good.”
One day I went to a market in a remote area to clarify the truth to people there. One man constantly interfered with me. I had to let him know the facts first so that others wouldn't misunderstand me.
I asked him where he came from. He said he was from the city and leased a farm to grow vegetables, but he was not able to sell them. He also said he had been a CCP member for a few decades. I told him that he would be blessed if he believed in Falun Dafa and his vegetables would surely sell. He said that yes he believed in Falun Dafa. Indeed, he quickly sold his produce. But he pointed to a full box of chives and said that he still had a full box there. I told him if he genuinely believed in Falun Dafa, he would sell it. Then a car stopped and the driver said he'd like to buy that box of chives. He was utterly convinced this time and happily withdrew from the CCP. Master is strengthening us at every moment.
Master's compassion and Dafa's mighty power is boundless. Like all other practitioners, my gratitude to Master is beyond words. I have to be more diligent to be worthy of Master's salvation. With Master's protection, fellow practitioners' support and selfless contribution in the material production sites, I am steadily walking on the path of cultivation. Here I'd like to thank my fellow practitioners as well. Thank you very much for your hard work!
