Victims of Persecution – Now Plaintiffs Suing Jiang Zemin – Recall Falun Gong's Health Benefits and Uplifting Power

September 06, 2015 |   By a Falun Gong practitioner in Daqing, China

(Minghui.org) Despite the health benefits and improvements in mind and heart that millions have experienced from practicing Falun Gong, Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party, launched a campaign to persecute the practice in July 1999.

To garner public support, deceitful propaganda was broadcast around-the-clock and the “Tiananmen self-immolation” incident was staged to further slander Falun Gong and deceive people worldwide.

Since May 2015, more than 150,000 Falun Gong practitioners and others have filed criminal complaints against Jiang with China's Supreme Procuratorate. They are exercising their legal right to charge Jiang Zemin with crimes perpetrated over the 16-year persecution.

The following accounts are excerpted from criminal complaints provided by Falun Gong practitioners residing in Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province. It is our hope that, through these accounts, those who have been poisoned by the lies and propaganda generated by the Chinese regime will come to realize the goodness of Falun Gong.

1. Falun Gong Changed My Stubborn Nature

I began practicing Falun Gong in 1997. I used to be an opinionated, selfish, stubborn, and very competitive individual. The self-imposed pressure also had its consequences: I had all sorts of ailments. I developed stomach problems, migraine headaches, arthritis, insomnia, etc. I was tired all the time, stressed out, and lost my temper easily.

After I learned Falun Gong, I changed completely. I learned to search within whenever conflict surfaced, and I began considering others' feelings first and no longer lost my temper. I felt myself become more sincere, forgiving, and kind. I no longer fight for petty gains, and I no longer have the pressure that comes from a competitive mentality. I am happy and content.

2. I Was Voted "Employee of the Year"

In the summer of 1997, I began reading Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong. The book talks about how to conduct oneself, how to be a good person, how to be considerate, show self restraint, etc. I decided to practice Falun Gong.

I had a very bad temper and liked to pick on others. If anyone crossed me, I would do anything to get even. In fact, people were afraid of me. I was that way at home as well. I destroyed many items at home due to my short fuse. I was terribly addicted to alcohol and tobacco. I also suffered the consequences of my bad behavior: I had stomachaches and relied on pain medication. I also had migraine headaches and arthritis.

Two months after I began practicing Falun Gong, my stomachache was gone and I no longer required medication. I was able to quit both alcohol and tobacco. I also began became considerate and empathetic. Things at home became peaceful and harmonious. At work, besides carrying out my own duties diligently, I do extra work without asking. Co-workers voted me "Employee of the Year" for several years in a row. They acknowledged and appreciate the fact that Falun Gong changed me.

3. “I don't need to check your receipt”

I was a college teacher. I worked hard. Because I cared a great deal about my reputation, I was very competitive. I would feel hurt when I thought I was treated unfairly. I developed insomnia, fatigue, and back pain in my 30s.

I began practicing Falun Gong in April of 1996. I now understand and have personally experienced the importance of abiding by a moral code and the meaning of human life through Falun Gong's teachings. When I abide by the principles of Falun Gong – Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance – I benefit greatly both physically and mentally.

When I managed projects, I had to turn in receipts for my supervisor to sign in order to get reimbursed. He usually signed the paper and commented, “I don't need to check your receipt.” I taught four different classes across specific subject fields, from arranging the curriculum to providing projects to guiding interns to carrying out projects and writing teaching materials. I managed all those duties with ease thanks my practicing Falun Gong. I was one of the two in our college recognized as “Excellent Teacher” in 1998.

4. “If everyone works like him, our company will never have a financial deficit”

I had depression in the past, and I was irritable and agitated at all time. My foul mood got me into all kinds of problems at home as well as at work. When my wife divorced me in 1994, I became even more depressed, lost all hope, and began drifting along without any purpose.

Fortunately, I came across Falun Gong in October of 1996. I felt like a lost child finally finding his home and his family. I had a purpose in life and also had the courage to live again. I abide by the principles of Falun Gong and was strict with myself. I experienced tremendous change both physically and mentally, and my co-workers all commented that I was a new man.

I am a truck driver, and I work diligently and safely, carrying out all my duties. My supervisor said, “If everyone worked like him, our company would never have financial deficit.”

5. Becoming an Honorable and Trustworthy Person

At a mid-size enterprise 17 years ago, I was the custodian of the company products. Whatever item I wanted, I could get from the warehouse. That was a position everyone envied. However, I almost lost my job due to my poor health and numerous sick leaves. I had a poor immune system, caught colds often, and had fevers that required treatment. Only in my 30s, I also had stomach ulcers and heart disease.

I began practicing Falun Gong in 1997. My body, heart, and soul were purified shortly after I began the practice. Gradually all my ailments disappeared, and I became more sincere and kind. I strictly abided by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I no longer take anything from the company, as I understand the deeper meaning of loss and gain. I truly became an honorable and trustworthy person.

6. I Quit Alcohol and Tobacco the Day after I Started Practicing Falun Gong

I used to smoke and drink excessively for years. Those habits destroyed my health. I had severe stomach problems, rheumatoid arthritis, and cerebral arteriosclerosis. I was only 49 years old then. I knew I had to quit alcohol and tobacco, but I could not, and I was miserable.

Much to my surprise, I was able to quit alcohol and tobacco the day after I started practicing Falun Gong. Within a month, all my symptoms were gone. I was illness free! I am full of energy at work, and my family also became harmonious.

7. I Was Renewed!

I am a teacher. I used to have all sorts of illnesses. I had a heart problem, insomnia, and varicose veins. I had to sit down and rest if I had two classes back to back. My legs would ache so much due to the varicose veins, and my heart would beat so fast I could hardly talk. I was hospitalized numerous times. I seemed exhausted at all time.

My body went through miraculous changes after I began practicing Falun Gong in March of 1997. Ailments left me one by one. I was renewed! I was revitalized. I have practiced Falun Gong for 18 years now, and I haven't spent a penny on medicine since!

I particularly pay attention to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I measure myself to a higher standard. I no longer resent others, I take on responsibilities, and I care less about petty gain. I tutored students voluntarily, purchased supplies for students in need, and took disabled students home.

Falun Dafa taught me to be a good person wherever I am. I no longer pursue fame, benefit, or seek anything in return.

8. A Couple Both Benefit from Falun Gong

I began practicing Falun Gong in May of 1996. I had been struggling with all sorts of ailments: kidney stones, chronic kidney disease, back pain, liver cysts, urticaria, rheumatism, and varicose veins. I went to different hospitals and had all kinds of treatments without much results. After I began to practice Falun Gong, all my illnesses were gone one after another, and I regained my health. I no longer need to take medication.

My wife witnessed my huge changes and also began to cultivate Falun Gong in November 1997. She was also in poor health: nephritis, edema, gastrointestinal diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, and lower back pain. Medication did not help. She also became illness free shortly after practicing Falun Gong.

I could not imagine what our lives would be if we did not practice Falun Gong.

9. By Reading the Book Alone, Most of My Illnesses Disappeared

I developed rheumatism shortly after I gave birth. It usually flairs up in spring or fall. I would have a rash all over my face, with swelling and itching. I also had uterine fibroids. I happened to come across the book Zhuan Falun in 1998, and by reading the book alone, most of my illnesses were gone.

My lumbar disc herniation did not improve until I began doing the Falun Gong exercises in May of 1999. I have had a clean bill of health since then.

10. Overcoming Years of Infertility

I had very poor health and had all sorts of illnesses as early as my 20s. I caught every cold or flu, had migraine headaches, stomachaches, gall bladder problems, rheumatoid arthritis, and gynecological diseases. I also had been infertile for many years after my marriage.

I was fortunate to obtain Falun Dafa in October of 1996. My body went through tremendous changes in a short time, and all my illnesses were gone. I even became pregnant and had a healthy baby boy! Everyone where I worked was amazed to witness how I'd changed. They all commented on how wonderful Falun Gong is!

11. I Regained Total Health in 4 Months

I almost had an ailment in every system of my body: kidneys, heart, stomach, the gynecological department....plus I had chronic pain.

Within four months of practicing Falun Gong, they were all gone. I understand that Falun Gong is a supreme cultivation way, which not only benefitted me physically, but it also purified my heart and mind. I became more sincere and am able to think of others first.
