Wonderful Experiences from Talking to People About Dafa
(Minghui.org) Practitioners of Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) live by the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Facing brutal persecution by the Communist Party in China, many practitioners have told others about Falun Dafa through their own experiences.
Below are some encounters I’ve had while talking to people about Dafa.
Young Man in Thailand Quits the Chinese Communist Party
One day, I met a young man at a bus stop. I asked if he liked to read books. Since he said yes, I said I wanted to give him a book about the true history of communism. He asked, “Is it the Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party? I was a tour guide in Thailand, and I skimmed through the book and quit the CCP there.”
“People can practice Falun Gong outside of China,” he added. “Many people practice abroad, and it’s not like it is in China, where it’s being suppressed. I admire your courage to distribute the Nine Commentaries in China. If you give me another copy, I want to read it more carefully this time.”
He then asked me to also help his wife quit the Party, and he wanted to know what alias I would use for her. I said Yongli, which means “beautiful forever.”
Patient Recovers by Reciting “Falun Dafa Is Good”
A middle-aged man was doing exercises in a park one day. He said that his health used to be poor but was okay now. I asked if he knew about the benefits of practicing Falun Dafa.
He said, “Let me show you something.” He then took out a trinket containing the words “Falun Dafa is Good.” He said he had been wearing it for three years. He added that he once suffered from a serious cerebral hemorrhage, yet he recovered after he had recited “Falun Dafa is Good” and “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good.” He told me that he had been reciting these phrases while doing his exercises every day and that people often commend him for his healthy complexion.
I was moved by his story and asked how he had learned about Dafa. He told me that three years ago, an elderly woman told him about Dafa and gave him the trinket. Two years ago, another woman gave him two magazines about Dafa, and then this year he received a calendar with information about the practice. He considered these items as treasures. He also told his family to respect items given by Falun Dafa practitioners. Everyone in his family quit the CCP, and when his granddaughter asked about the trinket around his neck, he told her that it was a life-saving treasure.
Old Lady from a Village
I met an elderly woman from a village at the end of 2017. I gave her my last Minghui calendar, told her about Falun Dafa, and gave her a trinket. She agreed that Dafa is good and thanked me many times.
While we were talking, two ladies in their 30s came by on their bicycles. One of them shouted, “Mom, who are you talking to? Do you know her? What’s in your hand?” The woman didn’t immediately reply, so I answered, “I’m just passing by. I don’t know your mom. I just gave her a calendar with information about Falun Dafa.”
“A Falun Dafa calendar? Do you have more? Can you give me one?” the other lady shouted. I told her that I did not have any more and asked her why she wanted it so much. She said, “Yesterday, I had a booklet stuck on my door. I read it the whole morning, and it’s excellent. Falun Dafa is so good.”
“This is true,” I said, “Falun Dafa teaches Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and it teaches people to be good. It teaches people to look inward and consider others first during conflicts. The government has lied to us all about the practice, and everyone should be clear about the persecution and not be deceived.”
The two ladies agreed. I also told them to quit the Chinese Communist Party. They agreed and quit the Party's youth organizations. They also asked me to help their husbands to quit the Party, so I sent the Nine Commentaries and some other informational materials to their families.
