Suing Jiang Is Something We All Need to Do
(Minghui.org) As of August 13, over 140,000 criminal complaints have been filed against the tyrant Jiang Zemin for persecuting Falun Gong. This seems to be a large number, but it isn't large enough considering the tens of millions of practitioners in China, and even all the practitioners overseas. My sharing below is for all those who are still hesitating to sue Jiang.
First, I'd like to quote Master:
“Every incident, every occurrence of such magnitude, is the best test and best opportunity for students to make that best step toward Consummation. Some of us were able to step forward. Some felt that they [did the right thing by] not making a move for the sake of actual cultivation. If Consummation is at hand and you still won’t move, I wonder what you would move for.”(“Teaching the Fa at the Assistants’ Fa Conference in Changchun”)
We do this out of compassion, not revenge or hatred. Most Chinese have a negative impression of Jiang and the Chinese Communist Party, but this does not necessarily mean they have a positive attitude toward Dafa. By suing Jiang, we are bridging the gap and bringing these people closer to Dafa and the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, so that they can be saved.
Secondly, suing Jiang is not a difficult process. Many practitioners who have done so, including those with limited education, are willing to help others do the same.
The Minghui website has helped us by publishing a complaint template for those who have been subject to persecution, as well as a template for those who have not been subject to persecution. Signing this template is very simple. For those who can't read Chinese characters, you can ask your fellow practitioners to help you. I believe that suing Jiang is part of a Dafa disciple's cultivation, and that we actually have to do it.
Now, let's take a look at the numbers. We know that approximately 100 million people were practicing Falun Gong when the persecution started in July 1999. Suppose one half, or even one-tenth of us are still practicing, we are talking about 50 million or 10 million. This figure alone is much greater than 140,000. At present, only a small fraction of the world's practitioners are actually suing Jiang, and the whole universe is watching how Dafa disciples act during this period of time.
A similar example is the peaceful appeal at Zhongnanhai on April 25, 1999. Although 10,000 was a big number, it was only 0.01% of 100 million practitioners. The appeal was concluded that day temporarily, but the real, massive persecution followed within three months. Had more practitioners stood up to safeguard Dafa with righteous thoughts back then, the result would be different, and the persecution may never have even started. It is just like with righteous thoughts—if all practitioners can concentrate on sending forth righteous thoughts globally, the persecution would end in five minutes.
For example, one village in our area had a notorious Party Secretary who triggered public anger due to the many deeds he had committed. In the beginning, a couple of people called for his resignation, but nothing happened. As more people gave their support and the entire village urged his replacement, higher officials had no choice but to replace him.
In conclusion, suing Jiang is not just saving people as discussed above, but it is also a fundamental test on our cultivation path that will never occur again. After Jiang is judged, those who have not sued him will never have another chance to make up for it. We cannot leave gaps in our cultivation, because we are Fa-rectification Period Dafa Disciples.
I sincerely hope that more practitioners can seize this opportunity, help one another sue Jiang, and save more people.
