China Fahui｜Clarifying the Truth about Dafa Diligently
(Minghui.org) I was weak from the time I was a child and would catch every flu that was going around. After I married, taking medicine was part of my daily routine. I suffered from depression in the spring of 2003 and could not sleep at night. During the daytime, I was always fearful. I visited many doctors but found no relief.
My friend is a Falun Dafa practitioner. After she learned about my problems, she gave me the Falun Dafa book Zhuan Falun. She also taught me the five exercises. I obtained the Fa and began walking on the path of returning to my original, true self.
I sat on my bed with my eyes closed one day and heard the sound of a whirlwind as I entered another dimension. I was able to fly, and my main consciousness was able to leave my physical body whenever I closed my eyes. I once saw a young girl in another dimension. I felt that she was a relative. I told her that she must learn Falun Dafa and go back to her real home by following Master. She ran after me, but I flew higher and higher. My voice resounded in that dimension.
“At present there is a prominent problem: When some students’ Primordial Spirits (yuanshen) leave their bodies, they see or come into contact with certain dimensions at certain levels. Feeling that it is so wonderful and that everything there truly exists, they don’t want to return. This has resulted in the death of their flesh bodies. So they stayed in that realm and could not come back.” (“An Explicit Reminder,” Essentials For Further Advancement)
After I read this, I said, “Master, I believe in the existence of gods and Buddhas. And in Master. I will make an effort to cultivate well. I won't leave my body anymore.” My main consciousness has not gone into other dimensions since.
After I gained a better understanding through reading and reciting the Fa, I learned about Dafa disciples' mission during the Fa-rectification period. I realized I needed to let more people learn the truth about Falun Dafa and help save them.
My hometown is in the mountains, far away from my current home. No one had ever clarified the truth about Dafa in that area. After the book the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was published, the government tightened its control. Security inspections on the railway were very strict, and it was tough to bring any DVDs. My niece was getting married in my hometown. She planned to drive there for the wedding. I thought I could not miss this opportunity. I prepared hundreds of DVDs with the truth about Falun Dafa and other informative materials and packed them into two big bags. As I did, my fear kept coming up, and whenever I thought of this, my heart beat fast. I spent a lot of time reading and reciting the Fa to strengthen my righteous thoughts.
During the two nights before we left, my heart was racing so fast, that I couldn't sleep. I spent the whole night sitting up in bed. The interference from other dimensions was severe. I felt that fear permeated the entire space. I asked Master to help me and sent forth righteous thoughts. In the morning as I left for my niece's home with those two big bags, my heart was in my mouth. I felt like I could die at any minute. I sent forth strong righteous thoughts: “I am a Dafa disciple. I must fulfill my duty. No one is worthy of interfering with my validating the Fa and saving sentient beings.” I was reciting Master's poem throughout the trip:
“A Great Enlightened One fears no hardshipHaving forged an adamantine willFree of attachment to living or dyingHe walks the path of Fa-rectificationconfident and poised”(“Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions” from Hong Yin Vol. II, Translation Version A)
With my strong righteous thoughts, the power of the Fa manifested. Although I felt my heart racing, I had no problem catching the bus with the two big bags. I talked to the other passengers about Falun Dafa. The evil in other dimensions was eliminated. The fear was gone. I reached my niece's home and had a good sleep.
The next day, my niece drove us to our hometown. My nephew said, “Auntie, there are surveillance cameras everywhere. They record everything to catch the thieves.” I started to feel afraid again. I sent forth righteous thoughts to clear my field. I thought I was not a thief. I was a Dafa disciple. I must distribute information about the facts of Falun Dafa regardless of those surveillance cameras. At night I went out with my sister-in-law. She held a flashlight, and I distributed the materials to every household. When we got back, I did not sleep. I sent forth righteous thoughts until 3 a.m. I then did the exercises in the morning. I did not sleep the whole night.
The next morning, the entire forest farm was stirred up, saying that a Falun Dafa person had come the night before and that there were Falun Dafa materials everywhere. My brother-in-law said, “You have to stop. It was reported to the county. The police department wants to review the video recorded by the surveillance cameras.” I thought Master would protect me and I would be fine.
The night before my departure, I still had some Dafa materials left. I planned to distribute them, but my relatives watched me closely. I took them out secretly. Standing on the street and looking at the many surveillance cameras, I hesitated. What should I do? Just then, the music broadcast by the New Tang Dynasty Television sounded in my ears, and it got louder and louder. I was so touched. Master was encouraging me, telling me that people were watching the DVDs I distributed. Without any hesitation, I finished distributing the rest of the materials. With Master's protection, I left the next day safely.
Following Master's Fa When Clarifying the Truth
I started to tell all kinds of people the truth about Falun Dafa face-to-face, helping them recognize the evilness of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and persuading them to withdraw from the CCP and its youth organizations. At first, I often encountered people who did not know the truth and raised questions I did not know how to answer. When I got home, I would go over my experience. I then read relevant articles on the Minghui website.
I would find the answers quickly with Master's help. When asked the same question again, I could instantly solve the puzzle in the person's heart. I also carefully read the experience sharing articles written by fellow practitioners and saw how they approached the question. I took notes, and through continuous learning, Master constantly gave me wisdom. I became good at telling people the truth about Falun Dafa.
A fellow practitioner and I were passing the post office on one occasion and saw an 80-year-old woman resting on the side of the road. I sat next to her and asked her if she had ever gone to school. She said she never had. I asked her if she was a member of the CCP or its youth organizations.
She suddenly turned contrary and said, “The CCP gives me a pension. You are involved in politics and against the CCP.” Her head was full of the lies that the communist party had instilled in people. I said, “Auntie, the CCP does not pay your pension, it is the taxpayers that support the CCP. Take for example the shoes you wear. If they cost 100 yuan, the factory and store added taxes to the price of this pair of shoes. Didn't you pay for everything?”
Later I told her about how I changed after I started to practice Falun Dafa. Following Falun Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, I tried to be a good person. I was a good daughter-in-law and had a happy family. I was healthy. I said, “Falun Dafa is good for the country and its people. But the atheism promoted by the CCP encourages immorality and corruption. It does not allow people to believe in Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. It incites conflict and killing so that it can stay in power. As a result, counterfeit products are everywhere. Some food is poisonous. Some people suffer from weird diseases because of this.” The more she listened, the more she understood, and the happier she became. I told her to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told her it would be good for her. She got up, repeating those words.
Another time, I met a college student at a bus terminal, who said that he was accepting an internship but was worried that it would be hard when he entered the workforce. He was concerned about the fact that people nowadays didn't seem to have a sense of right and wrong, and dealing with interpersonal relationships was hard. When I started to tell him about the goodness of Falun Dafa, he was willing to listen. He quit the Partu Youth League and the Young Pioneers. I told him about Han Xin, who showed great forbearance when he was insulted by a gangster. As he listened, he became so happy his face glowed. He applauded and said that what my teacher said was great. He wanted to know more. His bus had arrived, but he was reluctant to leave. I told him to read the book Zhuan Falun if he had the chance, and he would benefit a lot. He acknowledged what I said and walked away with his friend. Then he turned and waved.
Cooperating with Others to Resist the Persecution
Returning Home Safely
I went with several other practitioners to another township to distribute Shen Yun Performing Arts DVDs during the daytime in May 2009. A villager reported us to the police. Practitioner Mei, who is also my sister, called and told us to leave quickly. I knew something was wrong. I went to the main road. A practitioner on a motorcycle came over and I told him we had to leave right away. He picked me up, and we rode away. We didn't get more than 30 meters before a police vehicle showed up and started to chase us. They turned on the siren for us to stop, but we kept going. The police vehicle passed us and parked in the middle of the road. I saw that Mei had been arrested and was sitting in the back seat.
I remembered Master's Fa: We should not cooperate with the evil. Before the police got out of the car, I jumped off the motorcycle and ran into the village. An officer chased me and grabbed my backpack. He tried to drag me back to the vehicle, but I resisted and told him, “We are good people. We did not do anything bad. You should not arrest us. You should not do this—it's wrong.” He took off my backpack and said weakly, “You can go. I'll make a call.”
I ran into a villager's house. An old lady and her little grandson were there. I said, “Auntie, it is hot outside. I am waiting for a friend. Can I rest a while at your house?” She said I could and we began to chat. I told her that I believed in Buddha Law and believed in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and followed these principles. She was very agreeable. Her husband soon came back, and I talked to him. He went into another room, and I was alone. I called other practitioners at home and told them that we were in trouble. I then saw the police searching for us house by house. I took out my cell phone battery and focused on sending forth righteous thoughts. I was determined to leave my safety in Master's hands.
The old lady was watching her grandson play on the swing in the front yard. The police asked her if she had seen any Falun Dafa flyers or any Falun Dafa people. She said she hadn't seen anything. Two hours later, she came back and told me that there was another village three miles away, where I could find a taxi. I thanked her and went to the village. It was a town instead of a village and it wasn't the place where she had directed me. I think Master was giving me a hint that the danger was over.
When I got home, I learned that Mei had escaped while the police were chasing me. Master had blessed and protected us. We got home safely and were not the cause of the police committing crimes.
Hearing the Truth about Dafa, the Police Release a Practitioner
Mei's husband was arrested when he went to the countryside to distribute Falun Dafa materials in September 2009. Intimidated by the police, Mei came and asked me to go with her to the police station. I promised to go with her the next day.
But fear kept haunting me, even after I had suppressed it with righteous thoughts. What should I do? I asked Master to help me: “Master, if this is the right thing to do, please help me to remove the fear.”
The next morning I got up and was relaxed. I was not afraid anymore. I accompanied Mei and her daughter, sending forth righteous thoughts along the way. When we got to the police station, we were told that the person in charge of this case would return in the afternoon. We started to talk to people in the police station about Falun Dafa and advised them to withdraw from the CCP. We then went to talk to the director, who also kindly told us that the officers in charge would be there that afternoon.
When the officer got to the station, he was very aggressive and had a bad attitude. I remembered what Master said:
“Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in springRighteous thoughts can save the people in this world”(“The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos,” Hong Yin II, Translation Version A)
I smiled and said to him, “We know your job isn't easy. You are under a lot of pressure. You know, we live in the same city. We could bump into each other. If we met in another province, we would feel a kinship to someone from the same hometown.”
He started to calm down. I said, “My sister's family has difficulties. They have two children and live in a rented apartment. My brother-in-law used to just fool around. My sister couldn't do anything about her poor health. After practicing Falun Dafa, my sister recovered and my brother-in-law started to work to support the family. Falun Dafa practitioners are good people.”
The policeman said that he had met Falun Dafa practitioners before and knew they were good. We still clarified the truth to him, and he agreed with what we said. I told him that my neighbor, who was only 44 years old, died after being detained for three months. His child was in junior high school, and the wife lost her job. It was so sad.
He said, “We cannot do that. We will release your brother-in-law tomorrow. You can pick him up. If you have a problem, please come to see me.” When we left, he walked us to the gate. He told us to mind our safety and suggested we talk to people without handing out any materials, because we would be fine if there was no physical evidence.
On the way home, we thanked Master for his blessings. We not only helped the police understand the truth but also helped a dozen people quit the CCP. The next day, Mei's husband returned home safely.
Cooperating with Family Members to Resist the Persecution
Seven practitioners were arrested in September 2011. The provincial government had set up a special task force to do this and threatened to arrest more practitioners. The Domestic Security Division announced that they would arrest anyone who asked for the release of detained practitioners. It was a very tense time. Some practitioners went into hiding. An arrested practitioner passed a message to his mother, and I went to deliver it. The old lady was so upset that her back pain recurred and she could not walk anymore. His family was angry at Falun Dafa practitioners.
The Mid-Autumn Festival was approaching. Two practitioners and I bought a gift and visited them. We introduced them to a doctor, who also practices Falun Dafa, to help the mother. A few days later she could walk. She went with us to the Domestic Security Division to ask for her son back. The deputy team lead was very arrogant and did not let us speak. We decided to find his home and clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to him there.
We found his home after trying three times. We posted stickers with Falun Dafa information on his door and throughout his neighborhood, wrote him letters, and called him to tell him the facts about Falun Dafa and the consequences of persecuting Falun Dafa. When we went to the Domestic Security Division the next time, he was no longer arrogant. He told us about the arrest and said the case was not in his hands. He said we would have to go to the police department.
The deputy director of the police department in charge of the case was afraid to meet with us. We went to the lobby on the first floor to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa. But officers showed up to record us so we had to leave. We went to support the relatives who held banners at the district government office building. The mother of the practitioner held a sign, saying “Release My Son.” The riot police were dispatched, and several vehicles came to arrest us, but we all left in time. Three practitioners were released 40 days later.
We then cooperated with the families to hire four lawyers to defend the ones who were still detained. We distributed public invitations to the trial to expose the persecution. The trial lasted all day, and the lawyers presented a strong defense. Practitioners outside the court clarified the truth to the public and sent forth righteous thoughts. Many people, including agents from the public security and legislative organizations, learned the truth about Falun Dafa that day.
This whole effort lasted six months. It was a process for me to look inward and improve. It was also a process for practitioners to cooperate together. It demonstrated the power of Dafa.
Making Phone Calls to Tell the Facts
In 2013 I learned how to make phone calls to encourage people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. At first, I was very nervous when I picked up the phone and my voice would quiver. I asked Master to strengthen me. Gradually my heart calmed down, and I helped more people quit the CCP. I tried to ask myself not to care about how many people quit. Instead, I focused on the phone call itself and telling people the facts about Falun Dafa.
Sometimes I made 30 to 40 calls, but no one wanted to quit the CCP. I calmed down and believed in Master and kept on calling. As I continued, a few people agreed to quit. Sometimes over two dozen withdrew from the CCP.
This year the sim cards for our cell phones were often blocked due to interference. I said to Master in my heart that I could save people if I had a good sim card. Then a fellow practitioner brought over 10 blocked sim cards. I felt sad. They were for saving people. I tried them again and found 2 good ones. I was pleased. Thank you, Master. I could make phone calls again.
Due to the shortage of sim cards, I always worried about them when I made phone calls. I met a practitioner in our provincial capital and brought up the sim card issue. He thought about and said he would help me solve the problem. Now I can concentrate on making phone calls to save people.
