Clarifying the Truth about Falun Dafa is My Favorite Activity
(Minghui.org) At the age of 76, I leave home every morning at around 7:30 to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa. This is when I am the happiest. Even though I was not well-educated, for the past ten years I have regularly gone out to talk to people about Falun Dafa and persuaded many of them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and renounce its youth associations. I usually persuaded 10 to 30 people to quit the CCP each week.
I Am Fortunate
I started practicing Falun Dafa after my neighbor introduced it to me in January 1996. Following the principles of the practice, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, completely changed my life. My chronic diseases, including bronchitis, headaches, back pain, and leg pain, disappeared soon after I began practicing. I always thought, “This is such a good practice, and I have greatly benefitted from it – I should let more people know about it!”
However, Jiang Zemin's regime started to persecute Falun Dafa and its practitioners in July 1999. The police detained me in a brainwashing center for two and half months starting in November 2000. Their goal for the daily sessions was to force me to stop practicing, but they couldn’t change my mind at all about cultivation. Instead, I started to feel pity for the people who were persecuting me. Moreover, a strong desire to help more people learn the truth about Falun Dafa arose within me.
Telling More People About Falun Dafa
There is a Chinese term, “returning the favor many times over.” Master and Falun Dafa have given me so much. I cannot return “the favor,” but I can help more people to understand the truth about Falun Dafa so they can have bright futures.
I met two people one summer day who could not start their motorcycle. They tried for a while but could not fix it. They asked me if there was a service shop for motorcycles nearby. I was glad they approached me since it was a chance to clarify the truth to them. So I walked with them to a nearby service shop.
I told them, “Falun Dafa teaches people to be good. The 'Tiananmen Self-Immolation' was faked. It was produced by Jiang Zemin's regime to make people hate Falun Dafa. The CCP is so corrupt. Heaven will eliminate it. If you are a member, you should resign and also renounce its youth leagues.”
Both of them happily agreed to quit the CCP. I then asked them to try to start the motorcycle again. They were reluctant, but despite having doubt, they tried. The motorcycle did start!
They said to me, “The motorcycle is back to normal without any repair. Falun Dafa is really good!”
I also sometimes met people who had been affected by the CCP’s slander about Falun Dafa, and they reported me to the police. For example, another practitioner and I were talking to people about Dafa when a police car stopped beside us. Two officers jumped out the car, pulled us into the car, and said they were driving us to the police station.
I was not scared at all, and thought, “These two young men are really pitiful. I cannot let them commit a crime against Falun Dafa. Master, please help me!”
I said to them, “The police should arrest bad people. We are not bad at all. Falun Dafa teaches people to follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and become good people. We are doing good things. We should be praised, not arrested!”
They laughed and so did the people standing near the car. One of the officers said, “Someone reported you guys.”
I replied, “Go ahead and attend to your regular duties. We also would like to finish up our responsibilities here.”
So they released us and left, but returned after a while. While I was wondering what was happening, one of them ran up to me and said that I had dropped my keys in their car. The police officers had come back to return my keys. I was surprised by how thoughtful they were!
Cherishing Every Second to Clarify the Truth
I felt very anxious whenever I could not go out to clarify the truth. For example, my children usually come home to celebrate my birthday. They bring a cake and arrange for a feast. With all the children and grandchildren under one roof, we really have a joyous time together. I am a practitioner however, and have to use my time to save more people. So this year, I decided to have a more meaningful birthday and spend the day clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa! I asked Master to support me. When I sent forth righteous thoughts, I asked that no one would remember my birthday, and no one would come to visit.
I left home early on the morning of my birthday. People on the streets appeared to be waiting for me. They kept coming to listen to the truth and resign from the CCP. More amazingly, when one man wanted to quit the Young Pioneers, I randomly picked the nickname 'Yuan' for him and asked if it was okay to use this name.
His mouth dropped open, and he said, “That is my real name; it is exactly the same. How did you know this?”
“You are really fortunate!” I replied. “You really have a predestined connection with Falun Dafa!”
We both laughed. Master was encouraging me! That morning, I helped 16 people resign from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. That number was much higher than a typical day. None of my children called me during the day. They seemed to totally forget about my birthday. This was the most meaningful birthday of my life!
Master Helped Me Survive a Potentially Fatal Accident
I did all of this under the care of Master. Without Master's protection, I could not have accomplished anything. There have been many examples during the past ten years. I would like to share one experience I had a few months ago.
I live alone. Early one morning, I suddenly felt very dizzy and knew that I was going to throw up. When I got to the bathroom, I started to lose consciousness and fell toward a wall. My head hit the wall with a lot of force, and I could not move at all. I screamed, “Master, please save me! Master, save me!” and fainted. I gradually woke up after more than ten minutes. Nothing at all was wrong with me, and I felt energetic. I ran to Master's picture and cried, “Master, thank you for saving my life!” It was around 7:30 a.m., so I went out to clarify the truth as usual.
Whenever I clarified the truth about Falun Dafa, I didn't feel afraid at all. I knew it was the most righteous action in the universe. Each time before I went out, I always asked for Master's support to prevent bad people from interfering with my efforts. Master said,
“…cultivate yourselves solidly every step of the way and accomplish your mission of saving people.” (“To the Fa Conference in France”)
I always study two lectures of Zhuan Falun every day. Without much education, all I can do is talk to people and tell them the facts about Falun Dafa. Compared to well-educated practitioners, what I have done has been much less than what they have accomplished.
I have to work harder on clarifying the truth. It's my favorite activity.
