Determined to Learn Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. Two days later, every channel on TV in China was slandering the practice. I did not know what had happened, but I knew that Falun Gong was good because many people were practicing it. My son was worried, but I told him, “I am determined to learn Falun Gong.”
Attending the local Fa-study group has helped me overcome difficulties for the past 16 years. Practitioners in the group have been sharing cultivation experiences, studying the Fa, and encouraging each other. As we improve our xinxing through studying the Fa, we have been cooperating well to tell people about Falun Gong and the persecution.
Learning Technical Skills and Operating a Materials Production Site
In 2010, our local coordinator asked me to learn how to download the informational materials from the Internet myself without relying on others. I told her, “I'm afraid that I won’t be able to do it because I don't know anything about computers.” She replied “Your son knows how to use a computer and supports you. You also have Master.”
A practitioner came to my house to teach me step by step. He asked me to click a small dove icon to log onto the Minghui website to download and print the materials we needed.
On the third day, after clicking on the dove icon, I finally realized that the icon was actually the Freedom Gate software used to break through the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) Internet blockade. At that moment, I felt as though a layer of shell had come off of me. Master had unlocked my wisdom. Thank you Master!
I have come a long way, from not knowing anything about computers to being able to visit websites, download informational materials, and emailing articles or names of people who have quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Since the persecution of Falun Gong began, my home has become both a materials production site and a place where practitioners can share experiences while they drop off Dafa-related materials.
In the beginning, I was reluctant to be the person in charge of getting the materials and passing them on because it required working in three shifts, which is very tiring. Furthermore, I had to take care of my son who was still going to school.
Several practitioners then said, “The persecution is so evil and severe. If nobody collects or sends materials, our fellow practitioners will not receive any of Master’s teachings and other truth-clarification materials, and it will negatively affect this area.”
I thought that Dafa projects should always come first, so I decided to collect and deliver informational materials.
Under Master's compassionate care, I have successfully delivered truth-clarification materials to our practitioners every week for more than ten years. I feel the energy field at my home is also good.
I am aware that the technical skills I acquired were given by Master and they are wisdom cultivated from the Fa. No matter how busy I am every day, I always study the Fa first with a clear mind and remember to cultivate myself. Master said:
“Even now some people still can’t concentrate when it comes to reading the books. Those of you who do work for Dafa, especially, shouldn’t use any pretexts to conceal your not reading the books or studying the Fa. Even if you do work for me, your Master, you still need to study the Fa every day with a calm mind and cultivate yourself solidly.” (“Towards Consummation” in Essentials for Further Advancement II)
I know I must do the three things well. No matter how busy I am, I always stop what I am doing to send forth righteous thoughts during the four global times to send righteous thoughts. I have also increased the number of times to send righteous thoughts in order to rescue the local practitioners who have been imprisoned.
Safely Leaving the Detention Center
Someone reported me to the authorities when I was distributing informational materials about Falun Gong, so I was arrested at around 7:00 p.m. on January 10, 2015.
At the police station, I was handcuffed to a wooden chair while I was being searched. I said to the policewoman, “What you are doing will not bring you anything good. I only have booklets for saving people.” She then told the police chief that I didn't have anything on me. In fact, I had my keys and cell phone. Master had protected me.
I was taken to a hospital at about 10:00 p.m. and given a medical exam. The doctor said, “Your blood pressure is too high, so you need to rest before I give you another check-up.” After some time passed, I was given an examination again and the result was the same.
I later got an electrocardiogram done and my blood taken. While the doctor was taking my blood, I said, “I am a practitioner and have been arrested by the police. I would like you to know that the Party harvests organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and it has been denounced around the world.”
Back at the police station, I was handcuffed the whole night. A police officer later asked me, “Where did you get the materials? Where do you live? We will take you home right away if you tell us your name.” I did not reply to the officer.
Although it was raining the whole night, I did not feel cold or afraid. I asked for Master's help, recited “Lunyu”, recited “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and sang Falun Dafa songs.
The next morning, the police were waiting for me to “confess.” I told them, “I won’t tell you anything. If I do, it will only harm you. I won’t reveal any information.” They ordered me to sign the paperwork and give my finger print, but I refused. When they forced me to give my signature, I signed, “a Falun Gong practitioner.”
I was transferred to the detention center later that day. In the police car, I talked with the officers, “Please quit the CCP and its affiliated organisations so that you will have a bright future. Please remember, 'Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.'”
The detention center personnel looked at the results of my check-up at the hospital, and asked me, “Do you have problems with your blood pressure and heart?” I answered, “I will be fine if you let me go home to do the Falun Gong exercises.”
I only had one thought, “I am not afraid of anything with Master's help. I must go home today because there are many Dafa projects waiting for me to do.”
The detention center wanted the police to take me to the hospital to get another medical check-up. One of the officers tried to call his superior to get permission, but the call did not go through.
The police chief called several minutes later while we were on the road. I only had the thought of going home. After the phone call, the officer asked me where I would like to get off. I told him, “I am getting off right here. Please go back right away”
Master not only let me return home safely, but also saved the police officers by not allowing them the chance to commit a great sin. I only stayed in the detention center for one day. Thank you, Master!
