Clarifying the Truth of Falun Dafa to the Township Government
(Minghui.org) After the government promised to handle all complaints put forth according to law, I, using my true name, filed a criminal complaint against Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party, for his violent persecution of Falun Gong and its practitioners.
How I Handled Government Threats
Soon after I filed the complaint against Jiang Zemin, local township government staff visited me and asked, “Did you send anything to the Supreme Procuratorate?” I replied, “Jiang Zemin staged the Tiananmen Self-immolation incident, which incited hatred amongst the Chinese people toward Falun Gong.” He interrupted me and asked, “How do you know this?”
I responded by telling him the whole story behind the self-immolation incident, from Wang Jindong’s flame retardant plastic Sprite bottle and hair, little Siying’s ability to speak and sing just after her tracheotomy, to the analysis by international organizations confirming that the self-immolation video was a deliberate fraud.
I continued by saying, “In the 20 years since Jiang came to power, the country’s moral standards have deteriorated rapidly.” He listened quietly and left after hearing what I had to say.
The township government later approached my elder son and threatened him, “If your mother continues to practice Falun Gong, your younger brother may no longer have a job.” They also asked my elder son to bring me to appear at the township government.
My younger son said to me, “Mom, as long as you can keep healthy, you should continue practicing Falun Gong. I can survive, even if I only work as an ordinary worker. I know you are correct. If you stop practicing Falun Gong and your health declines, it will not be good for you. Don’t think about me.” Upon hearing his words, I felt very happy about his righteous thoughts and willingness to support Dafa disciples, and oppose the evil.
Clarifying the Facts to the Township Government
The next morning, after burning incense and asking Master for help, I went to the local government on my own, while maintaining righteous thoughts. The office was not open at the time, so I kept sending righteous thoughts and seeking Master’s help. Soon I was asked, “Whom are you looking for?” I told him my name and that I would like to talk to the local secretary. He said, “Follow me.”
I followed him upstairs. Soon he led seven or eight people upstairs and asked me to come with them to a meeting room. They locked the door and the atmosphere became a little tense. He sounded a bit angry as he confirmed my name. He then asked, “It is said that you practice Falun Gong?” I replied, “Yes, I do.”
At this moment, I was not in fear, but full of righteous thoughts. I was determined not to allow them to speak any evil words. This was a situation to be dictated by a Dafa disciple to clarify the truth. All the people in the room were to listen to the fact that Dafa is good. I was aware that Master was with me.
I then spoke peacefully, “I used to be very ill. If I hadn’t started practicing Falun Gong, I would have passed away and we would not be meeting here today.” They were all staring at me quietly. I then continued, “My parents gave me the physical body, but it was my Master who gave me my second life, which is very healthy! I used to suffer from mitral stenosis, a severe heart disease. Sometimes, my heart pounded a few times in a row, and then stopped. I then sweated abnormally and lost consciousness. This happened several times.
“I also had glomerular pyelonephritis, which would lead to uremia. I had a kidney stones, and blood in my urine. I had rheumatoid arthritis, and couldn’t touch cold water in either winter or summer. I also had cerebellar atrophy, gallstones, and other diseases. I had various medicines at my home to treat those illnesses. I had visited many large hospitals. You can go to the local township hospital to ask about my situation. Both conventional and traditional Chinese medical doctors know that all those of diseases are terminal! I was suffering in pain and waiting to die.”
They were listening quietly. I continued, “In 1998, a woman introduced me to Falun Gong. I was told that Falun Gong was marvelous for healing. The woman brought me a set of Master’s Fa teaching tapes and taught me the Falun Gong exercises. After three days of practicing the exercises, I was able to reduce my medicine by 1/3 of the amount. In ten days time I only needed to take half the amount of drugs that I had been taking. Since beginning Falun Gong cultivation practice, my health has improved every day. I stopped taking all the medicine two weeks after I began practicing. After two months, I felt what it was like to be truly disease-free. I was able to eat, sleep, and walk easily, and I could do an entire day’s work without feeling tired. I could carry a 100 pound bag, and could wash clothes and dishes in cold water in sub-freezing weather. Master Li, the founder of Falun Gong, didn’t ask me for a single penny, but offered me such good health. As my health improved, I was able to help my relatives and neighbors. You can ask them if I am telling the truth or not.”
As I finished talking, I could see that they were becoming relaxed. The secretary nonetheless asked me to sign a document. I said to him, “My second life was given by my Master. If I don’t practice Falun Gong, I will not live very long. My Master saved my life and taught me to become a good person by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Such a good Master and cultivation school! I cannot say that they are not good. I will not sign the document!”
Seeing my persistence, the secretary said, “OK. You can go home now.” After returning home, I reflected on the whole process. I thought, “I had the desire to speak out the truth to them, thus, Master allowed me to do it smoothly. Master arranged for me to clarify the truth to the township government! As it turns out, Master is always helping and taking care of me.”
My sons and I have never since been harassed by the government, and I have been able to do the three things well. Another thing I should mention is that I am in my sixties and have no education. I just wanted to study the Fa, so I asked Master to help me. Now I can read not only Zhuan Falun, but all of Master’s Fa teachings with few exceptions.
I don’t have any special skills or education, only a heart to believe in Master and the Fa, and to be grateful to Master.
