Cultivation Is about Removing Impurities
(Minghui.org) I started to memorize the Fa at the end of 2006. Every day I learned five pages of the Fa by heart and did not stop despite family tragedies. For a long time, I could only memorize one paragraph at a time. In total, it took me nine months to memorize Zhuan Falun.
Memorizing the Fa
A month after I finished memorizing the Fa, I faced my first test. My husband was suicidal and decided that we should die together by jumping in front of a train, but he did not succeed because I asked Master for help.
Before that incident I faced a lot of interference during Fa study. After that I had a new appreciation of Fa study and thus decided to memorize it.
I went from memorizing five pages a day in the beginning to ten pages a day and then went from half-a-lecture a day to one lecture a day. I have memorized the Fa by heart 27 times.
Every time I finished memorizing Zhuan Falun, I felt my xinxing improve, and my righteous thoughts get stronger. I got rid of many human attachments.
Letting Go of Resentment
My relationship with my mother-in-law improved and we no longer had any conflicts. When my mother-in-law became seriously ill, her sons and I took turns to look after her.
I took good care of my mother-in-law. Thus, she said, “You are so good to me. I would do anything to return the favor in the next life.”
After the persecution started in July 1999, my husband put a lot of pressure on me. He not only went against Dafa, but also had an affair. I felt heart broken and was thinking of divorcing him.
I sometimes recited Master’s teachings to calm me down,
“Cultivation practice must take place through tribulations so as to test whether you can part with and care less about different kinds of human sentimentality and desires. If you are attached to these things, you will not succeed in cultivation.” (Zhuan Falun)
It was very difficult to let go of my attachments during that time. Reciting Master’s teachings were instrumental in letting go of my attachments, including my resentment towards my husband.
Establishing a Material Production Site
I set up a small Dafa material production site in 2008. As I was more or less computer illiterate, I doubted that I could use a computer. But, Master was right beside me and encouraged me and I gained confidence.
Even though I had never done any printing, I just knew how to do it. This displayed the extraordinary power of Dafa. Our area no longer had to rely on other practitioners for truth-clarification and Dafa informational materials.
My time was all devoted to Dafa cultivation and Dafa projects. All my attachments, including resentment and jealousy slowly lessened. I was able to consider things from other people’s perspectives, no longer cared about gain and loss and became open-minded and happy.
Suing Jiang Zemin
I got involved in the suing of Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist in May 2015. I printed related articles from the Minghui website and read them during an experience sharing conference with other practitioners. More than a dozen practitioners agreed to join this effort.
I downloaded the template for the lawsuit documents from the Minghui website and helped other practitioners organize the paperwork. The first lawsuit documents were ready on May 23. Four practitioners and I went to Beijing to submit the documents in person to the Supreme People's Procuratorate. As we missed the submission time, we had to send the documents by recorded delivery.
My daughter told me that the neighborhood committee wanted to talk to me. Actually, all five of us were asked to go and see the neighborhood committee. They had been reprimanded by the Provincial Public Security Department. We refused to visit them.
We continued to produce guides for suing Jiang. In June 2015, we made nearly a thousand guides in one day for practitioners in the surrounding villages.
Walking Out of a Detention Center
A practitioner’s case was heard in the local court at the end of May 2016. Many practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts outside the courthouse. In the afternoon, local police arrested over 30 practitioners and detained them at different places.
I was taken to the police station by the Domestic Security Police on June 1. I recited Master's Fa,
“If you can let go of life and death, you’re a God; if you can’t let go of life and death, you’re a human ...” (“Teaching the Fa in New York City” from Lectures in the United States)
“In life, nothing sought,In death, regretting naught;Washing away all wrong thought,Buddhahood, with lessadversity, is wrought.” (“Nothing Kept” from Hong Yin)
“... you completely let go of everything, behave like an upstanding and noble Dafa disciple who has no resentment or attachments, and leave it to Master to arrange whether you stay or go.” (Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles)
I was very calm and sat in the lotus position. I looked within for any human attachment and found fear. After prior arrests, I was imbued with the thought to leave the detention center. This time, I decided to remain calm.
The police ransacked my home and found some currency and flash memory drives. Since they were my personal belongings, I signed the confiscation document. I believed the belongings should be returned to me when the time came. I told the police that they were breaking the law.
I continued to send forth righteous thoughts. My daughter brought me food and clothes. I told her to find a lawyer for me. When she cried, I told her, “I am a Dafa practitioner. Why are you crying? I fear nothing.”
I continued to send forth righteous thoughts, and wondered how to proceed. Around 3:00 p.m, the policeman had left, but I did not notice. After three minutes, Master reminded me that I had a chance to leave. I walked out of the office, the building and the gate.
Looking within, helped me find many attachments, such as sentimentality. Master also reminded me to let go of human attachments. Cultivation is about removing the impurities and retaining the real gold. I told myself that I should be tolerant, kind, and considerate to other practitioners. Only by having a pure mind, can we cooperate well and save more people.
