(Minghui.org) (continued from Part 1)
The Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) state-sanctioned harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners for profit was reported in the international media in March 2006. I was grieved and angered by the atrocity of these crimes. I had formed a study group that included a practitioner who was a military doctor. We decided to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa to the country's transplant doctors, especially military doctors.
One practitioner gathered information on organ transplant hospitals, including their departments, doctors, and contact information. Letters explaining the facts about the organ harvesting situation in China were prepared.
We had a list of names of several thousand doctors who were involved in organ transplants. These letters were passed on to various Fa study groups to be mailed out. We went out daily to post these letters during that time.
We used different fonts and different colored pens to write the letters and addresses. At that time the national postal system was under strict surveillance, and truth-clarification letters were often intercepted and destroyed before reaching their recipients.
While mailing out the huge number of letters, the greatest interference was fear. There were surveillance cameras inside and outside of the post offices as well as the mailboxes. We studied the Fa with quiet minds and sent righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil in other dimensions, as well as our fear.
One day I had a dream where I saw many people wearing white coats running out the door. When I told practitioners about the dream, they said that the people wearing white coats could have been doctors and that perhaps the dream signified the doctors learning the truth and no longer wanting to participate in the persecution, so they were running out the door. This is what we hoped for.
I got to know an older female police officer when I was illegally detained in a brainwashing center. I often talked to her about Falun Dafa and asked her to treat practitioners with kindness. She told me she had been in contact with over a thousand illegally detained practitioners because of her job.
She said she initially thought the Chinese communist regime was right in carrying out the persecution. But as she spoke with practitioners on many occasions, she discovered that they all had something in common. They were all good people who followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. They spoke the truth, were kind and responsible, and loved to help others. She observed that, despite being tortured, these people did not resort to violence. Instead they shared the benefits they gained from practicing Falun Dafa.
She said, “I've spoken to around 1,600 detained practitioners. All of them are good citizens. The government suppression is wrong.” She told me she kept a record of all the practitioners she came in contact with.
She subsequently used her position to protect many practitioners. Many of them who went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa were detained in this brainwashing center. Some were not even wearing shoes. A few male practitioners were wearing only an undershirt and shorts. This officer used her own money to buy toilet paper, face towels, toothbrushes, and daily necessities for many of the practitioners.
One time after a practitioner was arrested, other practitioners approached her for help. She immediately went to see the deputy head of the police station. That night the practitioner was released.
Several years ago, two practitioners were pursued by the police. To avoid arrest, they planned to go to another place. They could not return home or go to the homes of relatives or friends. In distress, they thought of this female police officer. Although she had only 2000 yuan in her possession, she gave it to them and helped them get through the crisis.
I ran into this older woman on the street one day. She said, “Master has published a new lecture.” She asked if I had read it. I said I hadn't. She advised me to be careful. That day I went to a practitioner's place and obtained Master's new lecture. I'm very glad that this policewoman chose to be on the side of Falun Dafa. She has truly been saved.
I attended a gathering of former comrades last December. They used to be my subordinates. Some of them later became military officers in a battalion at the regimental level. A former comrade who was a serving deputy general was also present. We used to be in the same regiment. Everyone was jubilant. Some of us had not seen each other for 24 years.
I told everyone about Falun Dafa. I told them about all the high-ranking officials who had been arrested for corruption and punished for taking part in the persecution of Falun Dafa. Before leaving, I gave everyone a computer program that enabled them to circumvent China's Internet firewall, so they could obtain uncensored information and learn the truth.
For a period of time, my friends and former comrades added me into their WeChat group. I dislike using WeChat, as it is strictly monitored by the CCP. It is undoubtedly dangerous to talk about Falun Dafa on this service.
A former comrade posted a video about the persecution of Falun Dafa. I watched it and found it good. I then circulated the video among my WeChat groups. Another former comrade later sent a truth-clarification video produced by NTD TV. I sent this to my circle of friends. My classmates said that the video was excellent, and a discussion about it started among my former comrades. They believed the information in the video was true.
One morning I received a video on my WeChat account. I usually deleted such things without even looking at them, but this time I saved the video. That evening, I opened the file and watched the video. It was about the corruption of high ranking officials in China. At the end were several links to information on Falun Dafa!
This was an excellent piece of truth-clarification material, and I decided to circulate it among my group of former classmates and comrades. I knelt in front of Master's portrait and asked him to help me spread the truth. In an instant, this video was posted to over 100 people in my social media group.
A former comrade in Shandong Province responded by sending a photo of a Buddha. I knew he understood the truth about Falun Dafa.
Later on, my mobile phone started crashing whenever I opened the WeChat app. I believe that Master was giving me a hint that I should not continue using WeChat to clarify the truth, as I didn't have the technical knowledge to use it without compromising my safety. But I was not convinced and tried to access WeChat again. The battery in my phone was damaged. Shortly thereafter, the Minghui website reported that over 100 practitioners had been arrested for using WeChat to spread information about Falun Dafa.
My former classmates and comrades had participated in the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners, and their names were on the Minghui website's list of perpetrators. Some of them are Party secretaries in the justice bureau, deputy heads in labor camps, and so on. To get them to stop persecuting practitioners, I either told them the facts about Falun Dafa face to face, spoke to them over the phone, wrote and mailed letters to them, or published their phone numbers on the Minghui website so that other practitioners could contact them and help them.
“I told you a long time ago that a Dafa disciple, or a cultivator, has no enemies. The only thing you have a role in is saving people, and you have nothing to do with using human means and human principles to punish or pronounce judgment on people. This is a fundamental issue!” (“Teaching the Fa in the City of Chicago” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference VII)
I treat police officers and their relatives with kindness. I regard them as my own kin.
A former high school classmate of mine became a police officer after graduation. She was the captain at a female forced labor camp and took part in persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners. Her husband, who was an accountant at a labor camp, was also involved in the persecution. He contracted liver cancer at the age of 50 and passed away six months later.
I sent a text message to this female classmate on her birthday, wishing her good tidings. I hoped my compassion would save her. During the Chinese New Year, she sent me a message, “I sincerely hope your life is safe and blessed.”
I used to be in contact with a dozen former classmates who were now police officers. When the persecution began, I told them I was a good person, that I had done nothing wrong, and that I was still following my belief.
They were very worried about my situation. I told them I was very well. They asked me to send a photo. My wife took a photo of me and I posted it on my social media channel. A classmate commented, “You look very healthy. If you are ever in town, do drop by.” Another classmate said, “We all hope to see you again!”
I learned that this group of friends often sent greeting messages to each other on birthdays. I decided to follow suit and sent them sincere messages wishing them good tidings.
In the process of telling my friends about Falun Dafa, a few of them and their family members renounced the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated associations.
A police officer who worked in a prison lived in the unit above me. I once gave him a DVD on Shen Yun Performing Arts, along with software to break through the Internet firewall. He believed that good is rewarded and evildoers are punished. His elderly mother and daughter chose to quit the CCP after learning the truth about Falun Dafa.
One day I met him and his friend. I gave his friend a computer program to break through the Internet firewall, but he was afraid to take it. He told his friend it was OK and that I could be trusted. His friend then gladly took the software.
In the process of cultivating, I have gradually eliminated my shortcomings, including jealousy, resentment, zealotry, competitiveness, a vengeful heart, lust, and so on, and I've become more kind and forgiving. I treat everyone like my own family. I hope everyone in this world comes to know that Falun Dafa is good and that, in return, they are blessed by Dafa.
Thank you, Master, for your compassionate salvation! Thank you, fellow practitioners, for your help!
