I Owe My Happy Marriage to My Husband's Practicing Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) My husband started practicing Falun Gong in 1998. Since then, he completely changed his character, becoming kind and patient, and he became very healthy.
Before he practiced Falun Gong, he used to smoke, drink, play cards, and beat our son. After he began practicing, he got rid of these bad habits.
When my husband began practicing, I was adamantly opposed because I didn’t understand Falun Gong. One day at lunch, I got very angry. I kicked him several times and emptied all the bowls of food over his head.
Not only did he not fight back, but he smiled and then cleaned up the mess. I often yelled at him. He never talked back. Instead, he smiled and said that Falun Gong teaches people to follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) initiated the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999. We faced immense pressure. Because I was misled by the CCP’s propaganda that defamed Falun Gong, I blamed him for how we were discriminated against and suffered.
I cursed him many times and said that he was selfish and did not care about his family.
However badly I cursed him, he never got angry. Instead he clarified the truth to me. He said Falun Gong teaches people to be good by following Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Our son was also misled by the CCP’s propaganda. He blamed his father for everything that went wrong. One day he took a knife from the kitchen and said he would kill his father. His father was not angry, but patiently explained to him why he practiced Falun Gong.
As time passed, our son saw that his father was really good and was not selfish. He understood his father and, in turn, became very respectful.
A Good Teacher
My husband taught at a school. When the school’s loudspeaker was broken his supervisor asked him to get it repaired. He agreed and did not even ask for his travel expenses to be repaid.
He bought hundreds of books for the students in his class. He did not collect a penny more than he paid for each book. He even covered the cost for those students who couldn’t afford them. He took books from our home and gave them to his students.
Honest in Business
My husband later worked as a tutor. A student once gave him some sausage and bacon to show his appreciation for his tutoring. My husband gave the student 200 yuan. Later, when he learned how much the meat actually cost, he said, “That was worth more than 200 yuan. I should give him more.”
Sometimes, parents invited him to teach their children privately and not go through the company. He declined. He said, “That is not in the company’s best interest. I would never do anything to harm others. Gold is valuable, but integrity is priceless.”
During the summer break, the tutoring company paid him 6,500 yuan. He thought that was more than he should get. He took 5,300 yuan, and returned 1,200 yuan.
He told the company owner, “You have parents and children to take care of. It's not easy to make a living; 5300 yuan is enough for me.” The owner was very moved.
Following Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in Daily Life
No one knows a man better than his wife. Through his words and actions, I have come to understand that Falun Gong teaches people to be truly good.
He is kind to his colleagues and friends, respects his elders, and is kind to everyone. Where can such a good person be found nowadays? My husband became kind and honorable only after he began practicing Falun Gong and following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
He has done many things that have touched me, especially at home. The longer I live with him, the better I think he is. Now, we have no conflicts at home. We respect each other and have mutual tolerance and trust. Our life is full of joy.
Falun Gong was first introduced to the public in 1992. Nearly 100 million people across China were soon practicing it after experiencing improvements in their health and character. Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), perceived the spiritual discipline's growing popularity as a threat to the CCP's atheistic ideology and issued an order to ban Falun Gong on July 20, 1999.
Minghui.org has confirmed the deaths of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners as a result of the persecution over the past 20 years; the actual number is suspected to be much higher. Many more have been imprisoned and tortured for their faith.
There is concrete evidence that the CCP sanctions the harvesting of organs from detained practitioners, who are murdered to supply the organ transplant industry.
Under Jiang's personal direction, the CCP established the 610 Office, an extralegal security organization with the power to override the police and judicial systems and whose sole function is to carry out the persecution of Falun Gong.
