(Minghui.org) I recently gained a deeper understanding of the power of compassion after clarifying the truth to an elderly former village cadre. His reaction after learning the facts about Dafa and the persecution truly touched me.

My husband and I went to visit my mother-in-law one morning. We saw her talking to an elderly man, and then she had him listen to Master Li's (the founder of the practice) lectures.

I talked to the man about withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations, and asked if he was a member of the Young Pioneers. He said he did join even though he had only attended school for just a few years.

I noticed that he was dispirited and asked him about it. He said that he had not been sleeping well lately. I suggested he recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

He then shared that he was a cadre of a village committee. He was embarrassed and depressed that he had lost the election this time. I asked if he knew about Falun Dafa. “You won't feel upset after listening to Master's lectures,” I added. I also told him that he would gain blessings after quitting the Party and gave him a Dafa amulet.

My husband explained how the CCP has killed countless people during its previous political campaigns, and how the Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident was staged in order to frame Falun Dafa. He then understood what the communist Party had done, and became very emotional. He wanted to renounce the Party.

He knelt down to thank us, but we told him to thank Master instead. I turned to the page with Master's photo in Zhuan Falun and showed it to him. He knelt down in front of Master's photo and cried. I was very touched and wept with him.

I asked if there were Falun Dafa practitioners in his village and told him to not persecute them. He said that he had never participated in the persecution, and he would listen to Master's lectures with his wife when he went back home.

I sensed a tremendous amount of energy while talking to the elderly man, and came to understand that the power of compassion can disintegrate all the bad elements in the environment that may keep someone from accepting the truth.

When I recently studied the Fa, Master showed me a very large character “Compassion” (善) in the book. I understood that I should study the Fa more, cultivate myself well, and save more sentient beings.
