Safeguarding Dafa Is the Sacred Duty of Dafa Practitioners
(Minghui.org) One morning before going to work, I went out to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa. When I arrived at my workplace, I saw two police officers about to hang up banners that slandered Dafa. I immediately thought, “Safeguarding Dafa is the sacred duty of every practitioner!”
I walked up to them and said, “Falun Dafa teaches people to be kind. Please don’t hang up those banners. Doing that will bring only bad things to you and your family.”
One of them got very angry and said, “I don’t care what you think! This is my job.” He then went to report me to his boss.
Later that day, when I was about to begin doing the Dafa exercises, someone called and told me go to the local police station. I thought, “That’s all right. It will give me the opportunity to tell them the truth about Dafa!”
As I was getting ready to go to the police station, I suddenly felt scared. My heart started racing, and my legs quivered uncontrollably. But my mind was amazingly clear! I was trying to suppress my fear by pinching my legs and was upset at myself for lacking courage. I thought, “Every day, I say that I will firmly practice Dafa to the end. Why am I so frightened by this? How sorry Master must be to have such a disciple. I must correct my state of mind!”
Standing before Master’s picture, I begged him to strengthen me. Gradually I calmed down, and my legs stopped shaking. As I walked to the police station, I thought, “I have Master and the Fa with me and there is nothing to be afraid of. In fact, that fear is not me!”
When I got to the station, the two officers in charge of the persecution--the chief and his deputy--were waiting for me. The office was filled with an evil atmosphere. I was surprisingly unaffected, and my heart remained calm and peaceful.
The chief scolded me, saying, “You eat the food provided by the communist party and drink the water given by the Party. The government doesn’t allow you to practice Falun Dafa, so you should give it up.”
I answered, “I have neither eaten the Party’s food or drunk its water. I earn a living with the hard work of my healthy body. Since practicing Falun Dafa, not only have my illnesses gone away, but I have learned to be a good person! Our teacher never accepts money from his students.”
The officer in charge of the persecution said, “The State outlawed Falun Dafa. You should break from it and think about your family.”
I said, “Jiang Zemin started the persecution because so many people were practicing Falun Dafa. He flooded the airwaves with lies that slandered Dafa. I used to suffer from many diseases and spent so much money trying to find a cure, but nothing helped.
The more I spoke, the kinder my voice. Master gave me wisdom, and I continued talking to them about the truth of Dafa.
“You know about the incident that involved my husband in late 1996. He was a squad leader at work. At the end of year, the workers were anxious to go home for the Chinese New Year. He was in charge of collecting and distributing his squads’ wages. When he got the funds, he put the wages for over ten workers under their bedding and left the room to go to work. After his shift, he came back and discovered that all the money had disappeared.
“If my husband had been willing to lick his leader’s boots, this would have been no big deal, and he wouldn’t have had to replace the money. But my husband would rather suffer a living hell to save face. At that time, I was suffering from many physical problems, and the incident overwhelmed me. I nearly collapsed!
“It was in March of '97 that I started to practice Falun Dafa. Shortly afterward, all my illnesses disappeared, and my temper improved. My heart was bright and clear! It only took two years for my family to pay off our debt of over 10,000 yuan.
“To repay the debt as soon as possible, my husband only gave my son and me 800 yuan over a five-month period. Our son was then in high school.
In 1998, the southern part of China suffered a great flood. Dozens of Dafa practitioners in our workplace donated money to the flooded areas. Even though we were in debt, I donated 200 yuan.
“If I didn’t practice Falun Dafa, do you think I would have done that? Only Falun Dafa can guide a group of people to become so good!”
After listening to me, the four officers lost their menacing attitude and had nothing to say. The officer in charge said to me, “Please go home.” And they didn’t hang the banners up later either.
Thank you, Master, for your compassion and strengthening!
