Spreading the Word about Falun Dafa to Every Household
(Minghui.org) I am a housewife. By the age of 15, I was already suffering from anemia, a lumbar disc hernia, left leg numbness, headaches, frequent vomiting, and arthritis. I needed a quilt to stay warm even in the summer heat. I went to many hospitals for help and tried a variety of remedies, but with no relief. I lived with pain every day.
My neighbor gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, along with illustrations of the five exercises in June 1997. I learned the exercises in one night and read the book in three days. I then decided to cultivate and improve myself according to Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
All the ailments I was suffering with disappeared in six months. My complexion was radiant, and I walked with ease. Since then I have not taken any medication. My friends and family witnessed my amazing changes!
Starting My Cultivation Path – Distributing Truth-Clarification Materials
The persecution of Falun Dafa was initiated by former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Jiang Zemin in July 1999. Soon afterward, I read a truth-clarification flier that explained how great Falun Dafa was and how it was being unjustly persecuted. My hope was that more people could read this and know the truth about Dafa. I then knew I wanted to help spread the word!
I went to a copy shop with the flier to have copies made to distribute. The owner asked how I would pay for the printing. I said, “I am using my own money and volunteering of my own free will. I had many ailments that were all cured when I began practicing Falun Dafa. The media are spreading bad rumors about Falun Dafa, so I want to help more people to know the truth.”
The shop owner was surprised and asked, “Aren’t you afraid of the police? The CCP will object.” I replied, “More people need to know the truth. A clear conscience does not fear false accusations.” He understood and said, “Great, I will make all the copies you want!”
He spent most of the day making my fliers. It cost me 400 yuan, and I had to make several trips to carry the boxes from the shop to my home. Then I began to distribute them to each home in the area. I did not have any fear; I only held the thought that I wanted people to know the truth.
Fellow practitioners heard about what I was doing and began to provide me with more materials. They gave me a box of fliers every two or three days. I distributed fliers until my husband got home from work, then went out again after my family was asleep and stayed out until dawn.
Overcoming My Attachment to Fear
I went out with another practitioner one evening in October 2001 to distribute fliers in a residential neighborhood. We split up to cover more ground. I was finished and waited for the other practitioner when I noticed a black car with two plainclothes officers inside. One of them recognized me and forced me into the car.
I was handcuffed in the police station for the entire night. I did not have any fear or feel any discomfort. I asked Master Li for help to protect my home and keep other practitioners away from harm. The next morning my family was able to take me home.
This experience, however, frightened me, and I dared not distribute fliers on a large scale anymore. I knew that this fear was not the true me, and I had to find a way to overcome it.
I started to memorize the Fa and hand copy Zhuan Falun. My righteous thoughts became stronger, and I became more aware of my responsibility to help save people. I had faith that Master would guide me to the places I should go to distribute fliers. I gradually overcame my fear and was once again full of righteous thoughts!
Distributing Copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party
Distributing fliers has been the most important way for me to tell people the truth about Falun Dafa. I have run into dangerous situations, but everything gets resolved with Master’s compassionate protection.
I went to the city hall residential compound to distribute DVDs of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. I took an elevator to the top floor, then distributed my materials one floor at a time. After I put a DVD on the shoe cabinet at the door of one household, the elevator door opened, and a couple came out. I took my bag, turned to the stairs, and walked down calmly. I heard the man pick up the phone next to the door and call security. He said that he had found Falun Dafa materials in the building.
I walked down one floor, got on the elevator, and went down to the first floor. When I reached the lobby, a black car was waiting at the door. Several officers got out of the car and looked around. I remained calm and walked right by them. Once I was out of sight, I quickened my steps and left safely.
I later returning to this residential compound to finish distributing the DVDs. I knew these people had been heavily influenced by the CCP. They needed to understand the truth about Falun Dafa. Protected by Master and the Fa, I distributed the Nine Commentaries and Shen Yun videos to each household.
My daughter got married in 2009 and was soon pregnant. I went to the big city where she lived, and, for the next seven years, helped her with her two children. I have memorized Zhuan Falun twice and hand-copied the book twice.
I now sleep for only three or so hours a night. I make truth-clarification materials by myself. In the process of distributing them, my xinxing has steadily improved. As long as disciples' thoughts are filled with the Fa, Master always takes care of us no matter where we are. Thank you, Master, for your compassionate arrangement to save me!
