Rescuing Practitioners and Doing the Three Things Well

May 15, 2016 |  

(Minghui.org) I work in a drug factory. In 1997, I saw a copy of the book Essentials for Further Advancement in a co-worker’s locker when he was getting off work. After I asked to look at it, I opened and read an article titled “Cultivators’ Avoidances.”

I had the feeling that the words were sacred. I felt like I had cultivated before but hadn’t succeeded, because of the same attachments mentioned in the article. I realized that I had found what I had been searching for my whole life, and have practiced Falun Dafa ever since.

Our factory makes painkillers and other types of pills. I used to take pills home without paying for them, and my parents, family members, and friends never had to purchase pills, because they always got them from me. I even sold pills and made money off them.

After I began practicing Falun Dafa, I stopped taking pills altogether. I told those who asked me for pills that since I practiced Falun Dafa, I could no longer take advantage of my job. No one asked me for pills after that. At work, my supervisors and colleagues praised me for being a good, dependable worker.

For years before I began practicing, I had severe rhinitis and no sense of smell. I had surgery for it but it didn’t improve. In less than six months my rhinitis disappeared. I truly experienced the feeling of no illness.

Validating the Fa in Beijing

I went to Beijing with another practitioner in my factory on October 9, 1999, to peacefully protest for the right to practice Falun Dafa. I shared experiences with other practitioners in a rented apartment and realized there was a big gap between them and me. In fact, I saw that I was not really cultivating at all.

At that point, I decided to truly cultivate myself and become a true Falun Dafa practitioner. I read all of Zhuan Falun every day. As a result of this intensive Fa study, my mind was filled with the Fa, and I quickly found many of my attachments and eliminated them.

One day, the girl who went to Beijing with me was arrested. I stayed in the apartment with the other practitioners from outside of Beijing. I realized that I should go to Qianmen to pick up the practitioners who had just arrived from Beijing, and show them how to avoid arrest.

Those who just arrived didn’t have a place to stay, and their minds were not prepared for the intense pressure that practitioners in Beijing were under. So I took them to the apartment where I was staying. There, the newly arrived practitioners improved their understandings through studying the Fa and sharing experiences before they went out to appeal.

I stayed in Beijing for almost three months, and welcomed and saw off many practitioners. Whenever I went to pick them up, I saw that the police were arresting practitioners who had gone to appeal in Qianmen. I was in danger of arrest myself a couple times, but with Master’s protection, I was never picked up.

Clarifying the Truth to Factory Leaders

After I went back to work, the factory leaders got together and tried to persuade me to give up Falun Dafa. I treated each meeting with them as an opportunity to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa. I just told them that nothing could prevent me from practicing.

One day, the chief of security at the factory asked me to turn in my Falun Dafa books. I said, “I will give you a copy if you want to learn, but if you try force me to turn in my books and stop me from cultivating, you will have to take my heart out with a knife since that's where the Fa has taken root.” They never talked to me about it again.

In 2000, another practitioner and I went out to distribute flyers and brochures about Falun Dafa. We also went to freight yards and placed banners on railway carriages, so the trains would take the truth about Falun Dafa to different places. We worked during the day and went out to distribute flyers and hang banners at night. We felt very enriched.

Walking on a Righteous Path While Rescuing My Husband

My husband and two other practitioners were arrested on October 18, 2013, for talking to people about Falun Dafa. The other were released after their families paid for bail. But I thought, “I am a Dafa practitioner and shouldn’t pay a fee to the evil.” I hired a lawyer for him instead.

My husband also had strong righteous thoughts and agreed to have a lawyer represent him rather than get bailed out. He strongly protested the brutal persecution he underwent in the detention center.

Since I didn’t have a job at the time, we had no income after my husband was arrested. Fellow practitioners helped cover the expense of hiring the lawyer.

My husband told the lawyer that he was tortured because he shouted “Falun Dafa is good” and refused to wear a detention center uniform. He told him that the warden made sure his hands and ankles were shackled so he couldn’t move. He also wasn’t allowed to use the bathroom.

After learning about his situation, fellow practitioners and I discussed how to rescue him. I went to the local 610 Office, police department, city government, and appeals office to expose the persecution my husband was subjected to in the detention center. While at those offices, I also talked about the basic facts of Falun Dafa.

My husband’s sister also went to the detention center and questioned the staff there about the torture my husband endured. When the lawyer met my husband again, he told the lawyer that he had been allowed to use the bathroom again. As a result of the improvement in his treatment, I understood the importance of cooperating as a one body and exposing the persecution.

I had the attachment of fear during the process of hiring a lawyer. I sometimes thought that maybe I should just pay the money to bail out my husband. Through studying the Fa and sharing with fellow practitioners, I improved my xinxing and realized that this was cultivation, and that I should walk a righteous path.

Suing Jiang Zemin

Practitioners around the world started to sue Jiang Zemin in May 2015. Fa-rectification seemed to be entering a new phase.

I thought I should also sue him, but I still had the attachment of fear. I quickly adjusted my mind, eliminated that attachment, and joined in suing Jiang. I mailed out my husband’s complaint in early June, and then wrote two complaints myself and sent them out as well.

I shared with fellow practitioners that everyone should sue Jiang since he committed the worst atrocity, brutally persecuting those who walk the righteous path of cultivation. There were many elderly practitioners near my home who couldn’t write well, so I helped them type their complaints on the computer and had other practitioners print them out. I handed them to the elderly practitioners, who mailed the letters.

Many of my attachments appeared during this process, including fear, and wanting to avoid troubles. Since my family lives in a closed residential area and the neighbors are very close, they all know my husband and father-in-law practice Falun Dafa.

During this time, my attachment to fear would still raise its head when practitioners came to visit me. But I eliminated the attachment by studying the Fa and sending righteous thoughts, and by helping other practitioners with a pure heart.

These are some of my experiences. Please point out anything inappropriate.
