Helping People Understand the Facts about Falun Dafa in Different Ways
(Minghui.org) After learning the facts about Falun Dafa, many people have been blessed – some had their cancer cured, some survived car accidents and earthquakes, and others had their lives totally turned around.
Teacher Li told us,
“Then, as a cultivator, you should make use of all feasible conditions to spread Dafa and validate Dafa as a correct and true science, rather than preaching or idealism—this is every cultivator’s obligation.” (“Validation,”Essentials for Further Advancement)
I would like to share a few effective ways to help people to better understand the facts about Dafa.
Sharing Stories That Are Relevant
People are fond of hearing stories about others that they can relate to. If we give them examples of local people who have been blessed by Dafa, it will be easier for them to accept Dafa.
I was in a taxi when we saw a fatal car accident. A young couple was both killed when their motorcycle was hit by a truck. I told the taxi driver that another car accident occurred in the same spot not long ago, but the outcome was much different.
I told him that an 80-year-old man was hit and landed over a dozen meters but was unharmed. The taxi driver couldn’t believe it, so I added, “Because that older man practices Falun Dafa. If you remember 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,' you'll be protected if you encounter danger.” The driver replied, “I will!”
A practitioner explained the facts of Dafa to her brother-in-law, but he didn’t understand everything.
Last year, he was diagnosed with cancer, and many of his organs were failing. Doctors told his family that his days were numbered. His friend, also a Dafa practitioner, told him to repeat, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” This time, he did. A few days later, he was able to stand up from his wheelchair, and a month later, he was completed cured. Although he is in his 70s, he is now working in the fields.
Many of his friends and neighbors were in awe of his miraculous recovery, which is another good example that we can share.
Using Visuals to Clarify the Facts
Helping people to visualize the magnificence of Dafa can be powerful and convincing. Pictures downloaded from the Minghui website or of practitioners surviving accidents without injuries, and practitioners who were cured by cultivating in Dafa, etc. can all be evidence to demonstrate the mighty power of Dafa.
An example of a good visual is the 270-million-year-old stone discovered in Pintang County, Guizhou Province, in 2003. It was later determined that it had fallen from a high mountain cliff. A crack in the megalith revealed six clearly carved characters that read, “The Chinese Communist Party Will Be Eliminated.” The character “Eliminated” is especially large. It seems that the heavens sent a message through the stone as a warning.
Many practitioners have the image of the stone downloaded on their mobile phones. When I visited Taiwan, I saw a practitioner advising tourists from China to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. The tourists asked why they should. The practitioner showed them the image of the stone. The visual helped them to understand the facts, and many quit the CCP.
In addition, X-rays of fractured bones and pictures of bodily injuries and scars from torture, as well as the aftermath of police raids of practitioners' homes, can all be used to expose the reality of the persecution, effectively getting acrossthe vicious nature of the CCP, and help people learn the facts about the persecution.
Sharing Accounts of Retribution
The persecution of Falun Dafa has been going on for over 20 years, and many people who participated have incurred retribution. We should share these accounts as well.
When I mailed letters to clarify the facts of Dafa to people in law enforcement agencies, I recounted examples of CCP officials, many of whom had to do with law enforcement, who incurred retribution due to their involvement in the persecution.
Our local practitioners also shared with police officers and government officials examples of local people incurring retribution, with good results. Many of these law enforcement officials have stopped participating in the persecution, and some have begun to help to rescue practitioners.
Encouraging Non-practitioners to Share Information
If it was Dafa that cured someone, practitioners should tell the person that he or she must continue to repeat, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” even after they are healed.
A manager of a large enterprise was cured after seeking help from Dafa. However, when asked how he recovered, he said that he’d fought the illness by himself. In less than a year, his illness relapsed, and it did not work this time when he asked for help from Dafa again.
Some people who were healed after they quit the CCP and repeated “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” died not long afterward. One common cause was that these people hid the fact that it was Dafa that had healed them and saved them.
A practitioner's husband was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. With his wife's help, he began to recite, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Very soon he was fine. But after he regained his health, he once again started to smoke, drink, and play mahjong all night. A year later, his cancer recurred.
One district director of the Domestic Security Division participated in the persecution and later came down with an illness unknown to modern medicine. Our local practitioners clarified the facts to him.
After he recovered, a practitioner told him, “It's Dafa that has saved you. If you want to be healthy for the rest of yourlife, do not persecute Dafa practitioners anymore. In fact, you should protect them.” This district director later volunteered to transfer to another department. For more than a decade, he has helped numerous practitioners.
Another deputy director of the local police station was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After learning the facts aboutDafa, he recovered. Local practitioners told him, “If anyone asks you how you recovered, you should tell them the truth.” This deputy director often told people, “Falun Gong is very good!” A relative of his wanted to report certainpractitioners to the police, but he stopped him. He has been very healthy ever since.
The deputy director of the Municipal Domestic Security Division and the 610 Office had no children. He and his wife visited many doctors throughout the country, but she still could not conceive. The district police chief took him to a Dafa practitioner. The practitioner told him that the reason he had no children was because of his involvement in the persecution of Dafa. To have children, he would have to stop persecuting practitioners and quit the CCP. He agreed.
Not long after that, his wife became pregnant and they had a son.
