Passing Tests with Master’s Protection
(Minghui.org) I am 63 years old and live in the countryside in China. I have taken Falun Dafa as the most precious thing in my life since I started to cultivate. With the protection of compassionate Master Li Hongzhi (Falun Dafa's founder), I have been cultivating solidly over the past 20 years.
Shouting “Falun Dafa Is Good!” on Tiananmen Square
Another practitioner and I went to Beijing in the summer of 2000. We had never traveled that far, but we wanted to tell the Petitions Office officials that Dafa was good and Master was great. We wanted them to know that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) had misunderstood Dafa and Master and that the persecution was wrong.
It was already dark when we arrived in Beijing. We managed to find the Petitions Office and spent the night sitting on chairs by the roadside. We woke up at dawn and found out that the Petitions Office would open at 8 a.m., so we decided to go to Tiananmen Square first to see if we could meet up with other practitioners.
We saw a few people but we were not sure if they were practitioners. One of them, a young lady in red, approached me and asked if I’d come to Beijing to validate the Fa. And I said yes.
She said they would hold up a banner that said “Falun Dafa Is Good” on it and asked me if we would like to join them and shout “Falun Dafa is good” behind the banner. We held the banner and shouted from the bottom of our hearts, “Falun Dafa is good!”
A police car came, and officers rushed over and arrested us, but the practitioner who had asked us to join them folded the banner neatly, put it in her bag, and calmly walked away. None of the officers chased her. I thought it was incredible because her dress was so bright and eye-catching, but she was the only one who managed to escape.
At the Tiananmen Square Police Station, two officials from our local liaison office came. One of them said, “You have held up a banner in Tiananmen Square and have done everything you wanted to do. Now go home. Don't worry your family. And don't you worry. We won't tell the local police. We’ll buy train tickets for both of you and you can go back this afternoon.”
We returned home safely under Master's protection.
Letting Go of Sentimentality and Helping My Husband’s Mistress
All practitioners involved in our material production site were arrested in 2003, and I was sentenced to eight years in prison. After I returned home in October 2011, I tried to take care of all the household chores, so my husband could take a break since he was in poor health.
During that first Chinese New Year I was home from prison, a woman younger than I came to the gate with a bottle of wine. I was busy in the yard at the time and heard my husband shout from inside the house: “Let her in. She is one of the parents of our neighbor's daughter.”
Our neighbor's eldest daughter had started a tutoring class at home after graduating from college, so I didn't think too much about it. I was going to take her to the neighbor’s house when my husband said, “She will have lunch with us.”
I suddenly realized that my husband had a relationship with her. I remained calm and said, “Please have lunch with us. I will cook for you.”
My husband said, “I'll cook, and you two can chat.”
I chatted with her like she was my sister. I told her that I had been persecuted and my husband suffered a lot because of it. Life had been really hard for him for so many years because of the CCP's persecution of Falun Dafa. I also told her about the greatness of Dafa and that Dafa practitioners are good people who live by Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, which is good for everyone. She listened quietly, and in the end I helped her quit the CCP and its youth organizations.
Before she left after lunch, I told her that there is justice in the world, that good will be rewarded and evil will incur retribution. I told her to do more good deeds and never do bad things.
She has never returned. In our conversation, I didn't have any resentment or jealousy, nor did I resent my husband for seeing her. It was really not easy for my husband to take care of the family alone for eight years. I forgave him from the bottom of my heart. I also understood that this came about because of the persecution.
Turning Something Bad into Something Good
Because of the outbreak of the CCP virus in Wuhan, on the second day of the Chinese New Year this year, cities, villages, and roads were locked down. I was concerned because I couldn’t go out to clarify the truth about Dafa. Since everybody was at home I decided to visit families individually whatever their attitude toward me. I tried my best to help them understand the truth about Falun Dafa.
After the lockdown, several practitioners and I went to clarify the facts at the market. Three of us were riding a three-wheeled motorcycle and accidentally ran into an electric tricycle parked awkwardly on the side of the road.
The owner of the tricycle, an elderly man, had not parked his bike safely. A practitioner’s relative suggested that we call the police, but we didn't because we knew everything happened for a reason.
We believed that this was an opportunity to turn a bad thing into a good one and help him and his family learn the truth about Falun Dafa. So we contacted the man’s family. He said that he had paid 8,000 yuan for his bike when it was new. We negotiated and agreed to pay him 7,000 yuan.
The next day, we took the money to his family, and they were very happy. We told him, his family, and his relatives the truth about Dafa. Everyone in the family quit the CCP.
