(Minghui.org) I’m an 83-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner, and have practiced Falun Dafa for more than 20 years. I met four police officers from our local police station during those years. They held different attitudes towards Falun Dafa, and therefore experienced various forms of benefit and retribution for themselves and their family members.
Understanding the Truth About Falun Dafa
The first officer I met believed in Buddhism. He created problems for me after the persecution began on July 20, 1999. When we met in October 2000, he told me that his family received retribution, resulting in his wife getting ill. He said that the local hospitals were not capable of treating her and told them to go to Beijing or Shanghai for treatment.
“I am a Buddhist,” he said. “I knew that either myself or my family would receive retribution for my bad deeds. I know that you are kind, and the people who practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are good people. Jiang Zemin is doing evil by persecuting Falun Gong. However, we have no other choice as police officers but to follow orders. It’s hard for us to deal with the situation. Please go to my home to treat my wife with your gong [supernormal power].”
“We don’t treat illnesses with our powers,” I said, “We tell people about Falun Gong and the persecution. If they can understand the truth about Falun Gong and stop participating in the persecution, they will receive blessings.”
A practitioner and I went to his home to visit his wife the next day. She was in bed and happy to see us. We told her about the benefits we received from practicing Falun Dafa, also called Falun Gong. I told her that I had liver and spleen enlargement, and cirrhosis. The practitioner who was with me had a uterine tumor. We told her that all our illnesses disappeared after we started practicing Falun Dafa. We advised her to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” before her surgery. We told her that she would have a successful treatment if she could do so. She later went to Shanghai for treatment, and the surgery was successful. I ran into her and her husband after the New Year in 2001. She said to me, “Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is so good!”
Refusing to Listen to the Truth
A female police officer I met harassed Falun Gong practitioners. She assigned people to watch me. One evening, she and six other officers came to search my home. I talked to her about Falun Dafa and the persecution, but she did not want to listen, and said, “The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) pays me money and I will give my life to the CCP.” I told her, “I practice Falun Gong and follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a good person; I did nothing wrong. You will be punished for persecuting good people.” She said, “You are cursing me. But I don’t believe it.” Sure enough, two months later, between 11:00 p.m. and midnight one night in October 2007, she fell ill and died while still at home, before her family had time to take her to the hospital. She was only 43 years old. I heard that her husband also died some time later.
This incident shocked everyone in the police station. They realized that Falun Gong practitioners are good people and should be treated fairly, and that whoever participated in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners would receive retribution.
Meeting Two More Officers
I later met two police officers. They did not harass Falun Gong practitioners as much. They only came to check on me, which happened routinely on sensitive days, and they left after a short conversation. When I was talking to them, a person from the community office chimed in, “What she [referring to me] said is true and we all know.” The officers said that they would come to chat with me another time since it was nearly noon and they had to leave.
They came to my home at about 2:30 p.m. the next day. I continued to talk to them. I told them, “Do you know my thought about the policewoman’s death? I felt sorry that I was not able to persuade her to stop persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. She would not have died if she had listened. Jiang Zemin and the evil CCP deceived and poisoned her so deeply that she became a CCP victim. I felt really sorry for her!”
While chatting, I mentioned that my health was good, only my vision would blur after reading for a long time. One of them took the chance and said, “If you have an eyesight problem, why don’t you stop practicing Falun Gong?” I immediately told them, “If you were a doctor, wouldn’t you still get sick? Wouldn’t you still die?” They stopped talking.
I continued by saying, “Conscience is both the highest criterion of the law and the final method of adjudication. A Berlin court tried a shooting case after Germany’s reunification. The accused was a guard who killed a young man trying to escape to West Berlin two years earlier. His defense lawyer argued that he was innocent, as he was only following an order. However, the court sentenced the guard to three-and-a-half years of imprisonment without parole. The court pointed out that a soldier would be guilty if he did not carry out his superior’s order, but he would not be guilty if he failed to aim right. A person of sound mind, at this moment, would raise his muzzle by one centimeter. This is the conscience that he should bear.”
I then said, “In addition to the laws of this world, there is conscience and morality. No one can go beyond a certain moral and ethical bottom line under the pretext of obeying an order. Falun Gong and its Master are the most righteous. Any suppression of Falun Gong practitioners is a crime. I sincerely hope that you know what to do and what not to do on the issue of Falun Gong. At the moment of right and wrong, anyone has the right to raise his gun muzzle by one centimeter; it is the conscience and morality a person should have. As a human being, to be kind to others is to be kind to oneself, and to leave space for others is to leave space for oneself. For the future of yourself and your family, I hope you think twice and think again!”
The most senior officer said, “Thank you for sharing this with us. You are a true Falun Dafa practitioner! Your kindness and peacefulness, words and deeds, and physical and mental state benefits us. We also want to learn the Falun Dafa exercises.”
They pulled up their legs trying to sit cross legged. One young woman was able to sit with her legs crossed. They asked me to teach them the movements. I said, “If you really want to learn, leave me your names and phone numbers. After I find the book of Master teaching the exercises [which police took away a long time prior], I will call you.” They gave me their names and phone numbers. The names told me that one of them was a person for whom our local practitioners had sent righteous thought every day to eliminate the evil behind him, and to prevent him from committing crimes against Falun Gong practitioners.
In our conversation, some of them told me that they had read Zhuan Falun before, but did not understand it. I told them, I read Zhuan Falun every day and I wash my hands every time before reading. I told them one should focus his mind and keep his mind tranquil while reading the book; then they would be able to get enlightenment. They said, “Okay! We will read Zhuan Falun in the way you just described.”
It was already 4:40 p.m. when they left. I talked for about an hour last time and two hours and ten minutes this time. My talk helped them understand the truth about Falun Gong. The next day, I told someone in the community office, “Please tell them that I was not able to find the book of Master teaching Falun Dafa exercises. They can go to the Minghui website to look for Falun Dafa books. There are many Falun Dafa books published on the website. They can be downloaded free of charge.” He said, “Okay!”
Since then, the person who had followed me for 21 years [I talked to him about Falun Gong before and he told me he was paid 3,500 yuan per month for the job] stopped following me. They also stopped coming to harass me on sensitive days. I know that Falun Gong is saving people, Master is saving people. I practice Falun Gong, and Master gave me the wisdom and ability to talk to them. Thank you Master!
Exposing the Evil
The CCP launched the persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. They spread rumors and lies to slander Falun Gong practitioners and deceive the Chinese people, and people worldwide.
To save the deceived people, Falun Gong practitioners started exposing the evil and telling people that the CCP is persecuting Falun Gong, and that Falun Gong is righteous. I also participated in these activities. I went to the local government and to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong; I told the people about Falun Gong wherever I went.
I was detained in Beijing for half a month for appealing in Beijing. I told the people at the detention center about the preciousness of practicing Falun Gong, that it is not wrong to practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and that the government is making a big mistake. Officers from my local police station later came to Beijing and took me back, and detained me locally. Still, I kept telling the police that the CCP is persecuting Falun Gong, that Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa, and that Falun Dafa saves lives. After I was released, they arranged for people to follow and watch me. I was not afraid and kept going out to do what I should do.
I filed charges against Jiang Zemin in 2015 using my real name. The people from the police station and the community office told me that I was involved in politics. They told me that I was in big trouble this time.
I told them, “I am not involved in politics. I am opposing the persecution. I am telling people that Falun Dafa is righteous, Jiang Zemin is persecuting Falun Gong and Falun Dafa saves lives. I am carrying out my constitutional right as a citizen. Jiang Zemin’s slandering of Falun Gong has poisoned many people, including you. It has also poisoned people worldwide.
Persecuting people for believing in God is a huge crime, and those persecutors will receive retribution. Your police station has a precedent. Not only did a policewoman in your station die due to retribution, but her husband was also implicated.
For your future, I advise you to quit the CCP organizations and discard the oath you swore under the bloody CCP flag, which will remove the mark the CCP gave you. Please remember ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’” I told them that the Hidden Character Stone in Guizhou Province is telling people why they should quit the CCP! They understood what I said and agreed to quit. I gave them pseudonyms and helped them quit the CCP organizations. When they left, they picked up the booklets that were on my desk, as they wanted to read them. These booklets explain Falun Dafa and expose the persecution.
Two other practitioners and I went to distribute truth clarifying materials one morning in April 2016. We were reported by a person we talked to, and the police took us to a police station. We explained Falun Gong to the police, and advised them not to commit crimes against Falun Gong, and why. An officer from our local police station came in the afternoon to take us back, and released us along the way. He told us to pay attention to our safety. I had talked to him before and helped him quit the CCP. However, the authorities still sent people to follow and watch me. I knew Master was protecting me, and I knew that my mission is to assist Master in the Fa-rectification to save lives. I was not afraid and kept going out every morning to tell people about Falun Gong and the persecution. I read the Fa in the afternoon.
The wicked CCP carried out the “zeroing out” campaign in 2020. Personnel from the street office, community office, and retirement office came to me, asking me to give up my cultivation. I greeted them, treated them well, and explained the facts about Falun Dafa. By the time they left, they understood, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
I thought, “Master, please strengthen me. I want to offer them the opportunity to receive salvation, and to stop committing crimes against Dafa!” I asked them, “Why did you come? I consider you all as my relatives, and therefore I am looking at your visit casually. I want to ask if you are here today to listen to the truth about Falun Dafa?” They said, “Yes.”
