The Joy of Learning the Truth
(Minghui.org) I feel so fortunate to be a Falun Dafa practitioner. This comes through when I talk to people about this cultivation practice, and they respond favorably.
“Falun Dafa is good”
I had athlete’s foot during the summer of 2004, which was quite painful. A lady told me to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I was filled with fear and exclaimed, “Oh, my goodness ... that immolation on Tiananmen Square!”
“The Tiananmen Square self-immolation was a hoax,” she said. She also told me that Dafa is freely practiced worldwide and only the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecutes it. She made sure that I remembered two sentences – “Falun Dafa is good,” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and from then on, I recited them every day.
I saw a poster on a power pole in 2005 that said, “Heaven will eliminate the CCP. Quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations will keep you safe.” There were instructions about how to quit. I followed the instructions and quit the Chinese Youth League, a CCP affiliate.
I read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, for the first time on February 10, 2011, and thought of broadcasting through a loudspeaker, “Falun Dafa is good! Dafa's Master is good!”
Workplace Warns of Impending Harassment
A manager where I worked was hit by a car. I visited him in the hospital.
“There are too many natural and man-made calamities,” I said. “The CCP has killed more than 80 million innocent Chinese people. Heaven is going to eliminate it. You should quit the CCP. Reciting 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' in your mind can keep you safe.”
He responded, “The authorities demand that we check on people who practice Falun Dafa. You'd better be careful.”
“Jiang Zemin, the former Chinese dictator, is jealous of Falun Dafa,” I said. “He ordered the persecution when he found out that more than 100 million people practiced it. Dafa is the Buddha Law and is now practiced in more than 100 countries. Dafa's Master and this cultivation practice have received more than 3,000 awards and proclamations.”
He nodded in agreement. I wanted to make sure that he understood the seriousness of the matter. I said, “You'd better not participate in persecuting Falun Dafa. Try to protect practitioners and recite, 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.'”
Then he said, “I know you are trying to help me suffer less.” I gave him a brochure, a Shen Yun DVD, and Dafa amulets.
About 30 people were in the conference room one day. The manager told them, “Falun Dafa is good. Falun Dafa teaches people to cultivate body and mind, and Dafa practitioners maintain good health.”
After the meeting, people made positive comments. One said, “The management agrees with Falun Dafa, so it must be good.”
From then on, I was always warned to be careful when the authorities issued orders to harass practitioners.
Dafa Amulet Is "Priceless”
I ran into my neighbor's brother and asked him if he was a Party member. He said he was but that no one had talked to him about quitting the CCP, so I said, “The Party has killed many Chinese people. Heaven will eliminate it. You need to quit the CCP so that divine beings can protect you.” He did not hesitate to quit.
I explained that the Tiananmen Square self-immolation was a hoax and gave him an amulet. He took it and wanted to pay for it.
I asked him, “Brother, do you pay for air?” He said, “Air is free. I can't live without air.” I asked, “Do you pay for sunlight?” "No," again. I told him that the amulet is like air and sunlight – it's priceless.
He was elderly and his hands and legs trembled. Thus, he walked very slowly. I heard him call my name one day. I looked back and saw him walking towards me cheerfully with what almost looked like a military goosestep. I asked, “Did you bring the amulet with you?” He smiled, “I placed the amulet in the most prominent place in my home.”
