I Found a Way to Tell People the Facts Face to Face
(Minghui.org) I was introverted, oversensitive, timid, and inarticulate from the time I was a child. My personality made it really difficult for me to tell people the facts about Falun Gong. I realized it was an arrangement by the old forces.
“The old forces have arranged for all Dafa disciples a set of their things, so if a Dafa disciple doesn’t follow Master’s requirements, he must be following the old forces’ arrangements. ” (from “Be Clearheaded,” The Essentials of Diligent Progress, Vol. III)
I told myself, “I must follow Master's requirements.” I sent forth righteous thoughts to negate the old forces' arrangements. I repeatedly recited,
“‘I'm Li Hongzhi's disciple, I don't want other arrangements or acknowledge them’—then they won't dare to do that. So it can all be resolved.” (Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference)
I started making breakthroughs in the winter of 2015. Here I would like to report my experience to Master and share with fellow practitioners.
Clarifying the Truth to Elementary Students
I teach Chinese in an elementary school. I started teaching both the Chinese language and a new course called “Thoughts and Virtue” in late 2015. As I prepared my lectures, I discovered that the textbook covered the 2001 CCP-staged Tiananmen self-immolation that defamed Falun Gong. The photo of the injured little girl Liu Siying, interviewed by the CCTV reporter, was part of it.
Master arranged for me to save my students—all these children. I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the communist specters in other dimensions that prevented sentient beings from being saved.
I said to my students: “Do not believe what you read in the textbook. What happened at Tiananmen Square in January 2001 was staged by the Jiang regime to defame Falun Gong. The U.N. International Educational Development organization stated that the incident was staged by the Chinese government. Fourteen years have passed and the CCP is still deceiving you and poisoning you.”
I continued my lecture with a brief introduction about Falun Gong. “Falun Gong is the Buddha Fa. It has been widely spread to more than 100 countries. You will see it in person if you travel abroad in the future. Falun Gong has miraculous effects in healing. Moreover, it teaches people to be good.”
I also taught them the heavenly principle that “good is rewarded with goodness and evil incurs retribution.”
I said, “From ancient times until today, anyone who persecuted the Buddha Fa was doomed. Li Dongsheng, the deputy director who staged the false news, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison. Chen Mang, the director who filmed the incident, died from stomach cancer. Luo Jing, the CCTV news broadcaster who broadcast much false news that defamed Falun Gong, died from throat cancer.”
I pointed out the discrepancies in the video of the staged self-immolation incident. Later I downloaded the documentary film, “Staged Immolation Hoax,” from the Minghui website and played it in class. My students watched it carefully and knew the truth.
I took the opportunity to tell them about the movement to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. More than 50 students decided to quit.
I explained the staged self-immolation hoax to another teacher, who also taught the Thoughts and Virtue course. When she learned the facts, she shook her head and said, “The CCP is really evil. I will not explain anything to my students for that lecture. I will let them study it themselves.”
I wondered: Once these students read the book, they would be poisoned by the CCP's lies. They should have had a predestined relationship with me. I should try my best to save them. What should I do? I was very worried and asked Master for help.
Two days later, that teacher asked for a class off, so I volunteered to replace her for that class. I really appreciated Master's arrangement.
At the beginning of the class, I said, “Dear students, nowadays counterfeit products are everywhere—cigarettes, alcohol, and even eggs. Do you know there are also counterfeit things in our textbook?”
I asked them to open the textbook and go to the page about the self-immolation incident. I explained it to them in detail. They were very quiet and listened to me carefully.
Clarifying the Truth to Educators
The textbook was published in 2002 and has been used for more than ten years. I searched online and found the address of its chief editors and senior editors, and then I mailed letters to them.
I also reviewed exam papers from previous years and found content that defamed Falun Gong. I thought that people from the city education bureau should also be saved.
I figured out their contact phone numbers and gave the information to practitioners who clarified the truth by phone. I mailed letters to them explaining the facts about Falun Gong, and the heavenly principles of “good is rewarded with goodness and evil meets with retribution.”
Clarifying the Truth to Students after School
Elementary students are very pure and can easily accept the truth. One day I had an idea to tell them the facts about Falun Gong after school.
There are more than ten elementary schools in our town. They are close to each other. I went to work earlier in the morning and left school immediately when it was time. Many students walk to school themselves. I waited for them on their way back home to tell them the facts about Falun Gong.
First, I gave the students a bookmark with the words “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I asked the students to read the words on it, and then told them that “Falun Dafa is the Buddha Fa and has been widely spread all over the world. You will be well protected if you sincerely believe in it. By reading the nine words often, you will become healthier and your study performance will be better.”
Most of the students had joined the Young Pioneers. I explained to them what a Young Pioneer is.
“My children, do you know what the Young Pioneers is? It's an affiliated organization of the Communist Party. Have you ever seen those arrested corrupt officials on TV? They are all Communist Party members. The CCP is not serving the people at all. They are grabbing people's money to put into their own pockets. The Communist Party is a corrupt organization and will be punished in the future. Anyone who joined the Young Pioneers has sworn to devote his or her life to the party. It's a blood oath and will be punished for being associated with the CCP.”
Once they became aware that the Young Pioneers was bad, I continued my talk and helped them to quit it.
Elementary students are very pure, so most of them told me their real names. Some of them used nicknames to quit the Young Pioneers. I've been doing this for more than half a year. It's very effective.
Clarifying the Truth to Adults and Finally Making a Breakthrough
It has been very effective to talk with elementary students, so I preferred talking to them. However, I was not confident in talking to adults. I was afraid that they wouldn't believe me or say something bad. I felt very bad that I couldn't make a breakthrough in this area.
I looked inside to identify the reason and found that I didn't fully believe in Master and Dafa. I was oversensitive and cared about my own reputation too much. As I became aware of this, I sent forth righteous thoughts to disintegrate it.
Last summer vacation I joined a Fa study group. I studied the Fa and sent forth righteous thoughts in the afternoon and went out to tell people the facts about Falun Gong in the morning.
One practitioner in our Fa study group shared her experience of helping people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. She had strong righteous thoughts and could successfully persuade a lot of people to quit the CCP each day. I learned from her and started distributing materials to adults from all walks of life. I also persuaded them to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, and asked people to sign petitions to sue Jiang Zemin.
I did it on streets, in parks and on town squares. The number of people who agreed to quit the CCP grew from one to several, from several to ten. Finally I made a breakthrough and gathered up the courage to tell people the facts about Falun Gong face to face.
Recently our local practitioners have been working on banners. My job was to put up banners at night. If anyone asked what we were doing, we explained to them the truth. We could clearly sense Master's meticulous care and compassionate protection.
Last month a practitioner brought me an old printer and taught me how to use it, so I started making materials on my own.
Now I feel that I am flying down the path of cultivation. Master really raised me up and then sent me ahead.
Everything is done by Master.
“Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one's master.” (Zhuan Falun)
Thank you, Master!
