School Management Learns about Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I received a phone call from the school where I work on October 26, 2016, informing me that someone would visit my home that afternoon. I knew that the person was coming talk to me about my belief in Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) and that it would be an opportunity to help the person learn more about the practice and save them.
I sent forth righteous thoughts and recited Master's poem:
“Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in springRighteous thoughts can save the people in this world”(“The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
The school administrator and a colleague arrived. I had told them both about Falun Gong before, and they had quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations some time ago.
We made some small talk for a while, then the administrator took out some papers and said, “We know you and your relatives have been treated unfairly, so as long as you sign here, you will all be left alone. Isn't that great!”
The document was a guarantee statement saying that I would no longer practice Falun Gong.
“I can't sign this,” I replied. “Before I started to cultivate, my health was very poor. I had severe heart problems and looked like a skeleton. Since practicing Falun Gong, both my character and health have improved. I've also avoided having to pay a large amount on medical expenses. Falun Gong has brought happiness back to my family, and it saved my life. I am grateful to my Master for saving my life. I will never sign this paper.”
I then told them about how Jiang Zemin, the former head of the CCP, initiated the persecution and staged the Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident to incite hatred against Falun Gong. I also talked about the April 25 incident, where more than ten thousand people visited Zhongnanhai to tell the government the truth about Falun Gong.
They were shocked and even apologized for bothering me when they left. I was so pleased for them that they didn't insist that I sign the guarantee statement.
That night, I thought about it further and realized that I hadn’t been thorough when talking to them about Falun Gong in the past. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have come today. I cannot let sentient beings commit crimes against Falun Gong.
I went to the Fa study group the next day and read Master's Fa:
“Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master. It is good enough if you have this wish.” (Zhuan Falun)
After Fa study, I felt a strong energy current envelop my whole body. I then decided to visit the school principal.
I sent forth righteous thoughts on the way to his office. He was alone, so I asked him whether he knew that the school administrator came to visit me yesterday and asked me to sign a paper guaranteeing that I would no longer practice Falun Gong. He said that he knew about it.
“All you need to do is just sign the paper,” he said. “then you're free. Why don’t you want to sign it?”
I started by telling him how I obtained the Fa. He listened quietly for an entire hour, as I explained what Falun Gong was, and about forced-organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners. He was shocked, as he had not previously heard about forced-organ harvesting.
He said, “You know so much, and I believe what you said. But, I have a question. Jiang Zemin isn’t the president anymore. The present government hasn't persecuted you. All those who persecuted Falun Gong have received retribution and lost their power in government. Why don’t you just sign the paper to avoid all this trouble?”
I replied, “I can't sign. Even in the most ordinary sense, when you are indebted to someone, and you then willingly betray them, would you respect a person who did that? I don’t think you would. Falun Dafa saved me. My Master saved me. I can't repay him. I can only tell the world's people that Falun Dafa is a righteous practice. Please be nice to Falun Gong practitioners, and you will receive blessings. If I signed the paper just to avoid trouble, it would not be truthful. Cultivation in Buddha Fa is very serious.”
He then said, “Buddha Fa! I understand now. You can't sign the paper, otherwise your years of cultivation would have been a waste.”
I was so emotional upon hearing his response, and added, “Not only that, but it would also put you in a bad situation. I can't let sentient beings commit crimes against Dafa.”
He said that he would ask the administrator to tell the upper authorities the reason why I wouldn't sign the papers.
