Distributing Falun Dafa Informational Materials to My County Government
(Minghui.org) I am a 70-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner who became a cultivator of this spiritual practice more than 18 years ago. I experienced the power of Dafa, as it gave me wisdom and the ability to send righteous thoughts.
The Right Thing to Do
Dafa disciples, speak the truth,From your mouths, sharp swords all at once shoot forth.Piercing through the lies of rotten ghosts,Seize the moment to rescue and save—hurry up and speak(“Hurry Up and Speak” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
I understood that clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings is a Dafa disciple's historic mission and responsibility. I was anxious to know how I could do what Master had asked of his disciples.
Another practitioner gave me 30 Dafa fliers. I thought it was important that the county government receive these fliers. I just felt that it was the right thing to do.
My first destination was the head of the county's police department. The receptionist said that the director was in a meeting. I left some Dafa materials and went to another office. Three people accepted my materials with no problem. I then stopped at a police station, where all seven people accepted the fliers.
My next stop was the county's Party Committee building, which had a guard. I wondered how I could get into the building. Then, I heard my two-year-old grandson, whom I had taken along, call out that there was a butterfly before he ran through the gate. I followed him and left fliers in the offices.
I was just about to leave when someone stopped me and asked how I dared to deliver Falun Gong fliers and whether I was afraid of being arrested.
“You are a government official,” I said, “and know how to reason. Even during litigation, one has to hear the arguments from each side and determine what the truth is. You cannot judge Falun Gong only by what you hear on TV. You should listen to the real facts. Am I right?” He took the flier.
Banners Covered Half the Street
I did not know any practitioners in 2002, and there was no one to ask how to go about clarifying the truth. So, I bought cloth and made banners to hang in public places where people could see them and learn the facts about Dafa. I normally hung the banners at night, but on May 13, World Falun Dafa Day, I decided to hang them during the daytime.
My home was near the main street and not far from the police station. There were many people on both sides of the street doing morning exercises, and there was already a lot of traffic.
How could I hang the banners? I decided to hang them on the poles from the east side of the police station to the west side. They read, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
While hanging banners, I thought in my mind that only good people could see the banners. An elderly man carrying a bird cage approached me and said that the banners looked nice. The banners were aligned well along the street and looked beautiful flying in the wind.
Only What Master Said Counts
A practitioner who had sued Jiang Zemin was arrested in 2015. Some of us decided to go to the police department to demand the release of the arrested practitioner. However, the practitioner's family opposed our involvement. We decided to write a letter to the government, and I offered to deliver it to the head of the domestic security team.
The next morning, several practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts outside the building while I took the letter and five fliers to the head of the domestic security team. He was in a meeting, so I decided to return at noon. He was in his office. I briefly introduced myself and told him the purpose of my visit. He was furious, asked me for my name, and threatened to arrest me for handing him those fliers.
“What he said doesn't count,” I thought. “Only what Master said counts.”
He asked me to return in three days. I told him that what I did was for his own good. I did not go to his office three days later, and he did not come to my home, either.
Eliminating the Attachment to Fear
Another practitioner and I went to a square to distribute 200 Dafa fliers. She held fear in her heart and did not want to participate.
“Let's send forth righteous thoughts,” I said, “to clear out the evil interference.”
We distributed the fliers while doing so. Once done, we saw that many people were reading the fliers. This experience helped the other practitioner eliminate her attachment to fear.
A few days later, we again brought 300 fliers to the square. I was at the east side of the square, while the other practitioner was at the west side. Suddenly, a woman screamed, “Over 200,000 people have sued Jiang Zemin. I will have you all arrested!” People started to gather around me. A man saw that I could not distribute the fliers fast enough, so he took some and gave them out himself. In less than half an hour, all 300 fliers had been distributed.
This situation was arranged by Master, who protected us and gave us the opportunity to establish our mighty virtue.
