[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] Opportunities Abound to Tell People about Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am a medical doctor who has benefited so much from practicing Falun Dafa.
As a Falun Dafa practitioner, I follow the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance. Thus, I treat every patient with great care and try to minimize the treatment expenses. Unlike many of my colleagues, I refuse to accept any gifts from my patients. In addition, I do not take any bribes from pharmaceutical and other healthcare companies, which is also generally the norm in China today.
Not accepting gifts is a great opportunity to talk to people about Falun Dafa and the persecution. I also make sure to tell them that they should quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliates. Most agree to quit after I remind them that they will be implicated in the crimes committed by the CCP if they remain a member of the Party.
Practitioners' Demeanor Shows Goodness of Dafa
Not only my patients, but also the police officers who arrested and detained me after I went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Dafa, listened when I clarified the facts about Dafa. They understood the essence of this cultivation practice and after I returned to work, they referred their friends and relatives to me.
My husband witnessed the changes in me as a result of my practicing Dafa and noticed that my patients trusted me.
“People told me,” he said, “that you are crazy to reject the money and gifts from patients and pharmaceutical companies. I think you are not crazy and should not change. You should reject such gifts.”
A friend of my husband's, who has watched me for a while, said, “I've never seen a Bodhisattva, but I think you are one.”
When my colleagues referred patients to me, they told them that I am not just an ordinary good person, but an extraordinarily good individual.
One of the hospital leaders protected me when local police tried to harass me, because he had observed that I worked hard, considered the patients' needs and even helped patients pay their bills when needed. He never hesitates to tell people that I am a good person.
Petition in Support of Suing Jiang Zemin
My family is large, but I have not hesitated to clarify the facts about Dafa to them and tell them that they should quit the Party. So far, more than 100 of my family members have quit the Party.
I also talk to government officials and law enforcement officers about quitting the Party.
Sometimes at dinner parties I talk to people about Falun Dafa. Most everyone takes Dafa informational materials from me.
Lately, I have been taking a petition with me to parties and ask the guests to support practitioners' lawsuits against Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese communist regime responsible for initiating the persecution. Every guest at two parties signed the petition.
A week ago, we were invited to dinner at a high-ranking government official's house. I talked to the entire family. Everyone quit the Party and signed the petition in support of the lawsuits against Jiang. The officer also said that she would distribute informational materials.
Their daughter said to all present that I am an excellent woman, gentle and virtuous.
“You underestimate her,” said my husband. “She is a thoughtful person. She is not only of excellent character, she is extraordinarily excellent.”
He gave two reasons for his remark. First, I am a capable doctor, and second, I am solid and sincere in my belief.
Change in Approach
My husband is a businessman, and has a lot of friends, clients, and partners. This is another excellent opportunity to tell people about Dafa and about the importance of quitting the Party.
Initially, my husband tried to stop me from talking to these people about Dafa and we had quite a few fights. Therefore, I changed my approach. I stopped talking about Dafa at the dinner table, but would take the people aside. This approach worked well, and almost all my husband's friends, acquaintances and partners have quit the Party.
My husband's attitude also changed. He now watches NTD television programs, a New York-based Chinese language television station, and even talks to people about this cultivation practice.
He also points out my shortcomings, which helps me improve in my cultivation.
Popularity of Handmade Dafa Calendars
Last year, the administrators at my hospital had a group picture of 121 people taken. To my surprise, during the event I learned that 74 individuals had already quit the Party, and all the others have learned the facts about Dafa.
One of my co-workers is the wife of the hospital's deputy dean. She often asks me for informational materials, and also gives them to her husband. He likes reading Dafa materials, and sometime urges her to bring more home. She also helps distribute materials. Often, after she and her husband read the materials, she leaves them in parks or bus stations so others can also benefit from reading them.
Doctors and nurses in my department have accepted such informational materials. The handmade calendars with Dafa pictures and information have become quite popular. One of the doctors keeps the calendar on the top of her computer, and everyone who comes to her office can read it. Some of my coworkers even distribute materials at public places.
“I think you are a really compassionate person,” said a coworker. “When I had a conflict with a nurse, you stopped us and talked to us. I still recall your words. You were absolutely right. Now, I only trust you, and I enjoy listening to you.” She made sure that her entire family had an opportunity to hear me speak, and they all quit the Party.
