Holding Strong Righteous Thoughts in Saving Sentient Beings during the Coronavirus Epidemic
(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner in Northeast China. Below is a story that happened to me on February 14, 2020 when I went out to distribute truth-clarification leaflets with information about the Wuhan coronavirus.
A boy reported me to a young police officer, who immediately contacted the local police station to arrest me.
A few minutes later, the head of the Domestic Security Division and a few police officers came.
I started talking to them as they came up to me, “We hand out leaflets to tell people that reciting 'Falun Dafa is good' will bring them blessings. The coronavirus is very severe at the moment. We hope that everyone will stay safe in the outbreak.”
“How can you save people?” a police officer asked me while driving me to the police station.
“You can sincerely recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ If you recite these words sincerely with your heart, bad things would keep away from you. Many people have experienced miracles by reciting the words,” I replied.
The police officer sitting opposite to me argued, “You Falun Dafa people encourage people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). You are playing politics and are against the Party.”
I explained to him, “Quitting the CCP is not targeting any particular person, but to free oneself from this corrupt system. Falun Dafa teaches people to conduct themselves according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and to let go of human attachments. There will be consequences facing those who persecute people who cultivate kindness.”
I then mentioned Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai, the two high-ranking CCP officials who committed horrendous crimes in the persecution of Falun Gong, who both ended up in jail.
The head of the Domestic Security Division said, “Serves them right!”
“You are quite clear-headed,” I praised him and went on to tell them that Dafa practitioners are kindhearted and upright people, “I'm a high school teacher and I never accept any cash gifts from students' parents, like other teachers do. I also know another fellow practitioner who is the head of a tax agency, and he has never embezzled any money, not even a cent. Nowadays it’s so hard to find an official who wouldn’t take bribes.”
Hearing this, the police said, “That’s extraordinary; that’s truly following Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance!”
After we arrived at the police station, I showed them a letter I had written the day before about the karmic retribution for the perpetrators for persecuting Falun Dafa. It's something the police needed to see.
I was very calm and held a compassionate heart towards the officers. I told them not to participate in the persecution of Dafa, or serve as hatchet men and end up as scapegoats of the CCP.
They listened quietly and I could feel that they really took my words to heart. They also showed great interest in the content of the letter.
I pointed out a case close to our area, “The head of Kangping County Court was struck by lightning and killed in 2014. He had done many bad things and often gave heavy sentences to Dafa practitioners.”
They were all quite shocked to hear this. I then told them, “Our Master told us to treat every precious Chinese person as our family and do our best to save them, especially people like you. Don't follow in the footsteps of those people.” They all listened quietly.
I also told them how the CCP covered up the facts at the expense of heavy losses of people’s lives in handling the Wuhan coronavirus.
As I was talking, the atmosphere in the room became more and more righteous. The thought that I might be unlawfully detained never came to my mind, as I just wouldn’t acknowledge it. The only thing on my mind was to stop those police officers from doing more bad things and do my best to save them.
Just then, the head of the police station came in. He said he had met me before and asked about my parents and my child. Then he and the division leader went to another office. I had a feeling that he was going to put in a good word for me.
I remembered that he went to my family two years ago. I didn't do well in clarifying the truth to him that time. Later, I sent forth righteous thoughts for him and mailed some truth-clarification materials to him. Even though he did not quit the CCP, he seemed to have understood the facts about Dafa and Dafa disciples. I felt very happy for him.
I also made use of the opportunity when they were taking notes of the conversation to further clarify the truth and expose the persecution.
“Where did you get the leaflets?” one officer asked me. I told them I got them made in an advertising company.
“Do you know that person?” he asked me.
“I wouldn't tell you even if I knew him. I would be a traitor if I did, wouldn't I?” I said half jokingly.
“It's called being a Judas!” the young police officer said, and everyone burst out laughing.
Just then, the division leader walked in. He praised my handwriting first, and then said, “Put my work aside, I should call you 'big sister' in a normal situation. I haven't treated you badly, right? I haven't said anything bad about you Falun Dafa people, and you haven't done anything like murder and arson. Your Master has not told you to do bad things, either. It's only an issue of faith, right?”
I commented positively on what he said. Then he turned around and said, “However, this is our job. You also need to cooperate with us!”
“I will cooperate with you any way you like as long as you listen to the truth. If you arrest good people, that's a crime. How can I cooperate with that?”
It turned out that this division leader had received numerous truth-clarification phone calls from overseas practitioners about me and his cellphone was almost “blown up,” in his words.
I felt really grateful to overseas fellow practitioners for their rescuing efforts.
“You should thank Falun Dafa practitioners overseas,” I said to him, “They are so kind and helped you become so clear-headed.”
“Since your surname is Feng, how about I give you a pseudo name 'Feng Xi' and help you quit the CCP?" I suggested, “Xi means happiness. It's the happiest thing in your life to quit the CCP today.”
“Okay, I like this name!” he agreed happily.
He then told the other officers, “It's all finished. Call her husband to take her home.”
Seeing that their boss had quit the CCP, the other three officers in the office also quit the CCP organizations one after another.
When fellow practitioners saw me the next day, they all said that they never thought I would be in any danger and I would definitely come back home safe and sound.
I was really pleased that they all thought this way. Thank you, fellow practitioners, for strengthening me with righteous thoughts. Thank you, Master, for your compassionate protection!
I’m sharing this experience as a mutual encouragement with fellow practitioners: the current coronavirus epidemic is a huge catastrophe to the humanity, in particular to the sentient beings who still do not know the truth. At the same time, it is also a precious opportunity to test if we as Dafa practitioners could truly let go of ourselves, walk out of humanness, and clarify the truth to save more people. Master is waiting anxiously for us to reach the standards of the Fa and for more sentient beings to be saved!
