(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. Starting in 2004, my husband and I clarified the truth first to relatives and friends, and later to everyone we met. After my husband passed away in 2008, I clarified the truth in public on my own every day.

I got up very early to do the exercises and study the Fa. After sending righteous thoughts at 6:00 a.m., I cooked breakfast and sent my granddaughter off to school. I then burned incense in front of Master Li Hongzhi’s portrait: “Master, I’m going out to save people. Please strengthen my righteous thoughts. Please bring predestined people to me and keep bad people away!”

I then went out to distribute informational materials about Falun Dafa and the persecution. I went to markets and shops by bus and on foot. When I clarified the truth, I paid attention to helping people understand the evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), rather than how many people I talked to. After a person agreed to withdraw from the CCP, I gave them an amulet and asked them to recite, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”

Sometimes, people who quit the CCP saw me later and said, “I’m reciting it all the time!” An elderly relative of mine used to refuse to listen to the truth. Nowadays, he shouts, “Falun Dafa is good!” whenever he sees me, sometimes even in a crowd.

My brother and his wife always recited, “Falun Dafa is good!” when they worked on their peanut farm. They told me they don’t feel tired, and every year they've had a bumper harvest.

Study the Fa More

I followed what Master Li told us:

“Validating the Fa isn’t something ordinary people do; only Dafa disciples are worthy of doing it. So now study and study the Fa more, study the Fa more.” (“Teachings Given on Lantern Festival Day, 2003”)

At the beginning, I required myself to read through Zhuan Falun every three days. I wanted to discipline myself so I would not be lazy or distracted by other things. After I increased my time of clarifying the truth to people face to face, I read one lecture per day. I also read Master’s newer lectures and recited Hong Yin when I had extra time.

My district was locked down after the pandemic began in 2020. Since I could not go out, I utilized my time to memorize Zhuan Falun. In order to save time. I only ate two meals per day. The more I memorized the Fa, the more I enjoyed doing so. The speed of my memorizing increased. I sometimes wanted to cry when memorizing the Fa. I sometimes felt that my body was weightless. Sometimes, a heat wave rushed through my entire body.

A month later, I had memorized Zhuan Falun from beginning to end, as well as Hong Yin and Hong Yin II.

My district then lifted the restrictions, and I resumed going out to save people.

I noticed an interesting thing… If I missed the time to go out to clarify the truth, it was difficult to memorize the Fa, as I kept forgetting what I read. If I reminded myself I to go out to save people, then memorizing the paragraph went like a breeze. I am grateful for Master’s blessing!

Approaching People in Ways They Can Accept

I sometimes try to observe people before clarifying the truth, so I can find a suitable way to talk to them. For example, one day on a train ride, a Buddhist sat next to me on one side, while a Christian sat on the other. They argued for a while. They then asked me what I believed.

I said to the Christian, “When the Book of Revelation in the Bible talks about wiping off the mark of the beast, it is referring to withdrawing from the CCP’s organizations. Joining the Party, the Youth League, or the Young Pioneers is taking on the mark. When you pledged to give your life to the CCP, you got the mark on your forehead. How can you go to heaven with that mark?

“The CCP is Satan, which tells you not to believe in God. You are in Satan’s group when you joined the CCP. Why not withdraw from the CCP now?” I asked.

The Christian nodded, “Yes, I withdraw!”

I then turned to the Buddhist and said, “You heard it, right? The CCP is an atheist group. You cannot believe in Buddha while inside the CCP. Why not withdraw as well?”

She also nodded,: “Thanks for telling me about this. Yes, please help me to withdraw!”

I once greeted and chatted with a cleaning man, “You are doing such a great job. Look how clean the street is!” I then asked, “Did you wear the red scarf when you were little?” (The red scarf is worn by children who are members of the Young Pioneers organization of the CCP.) He said he used to be the CCP secretary in his home village.

“After working for the CCP for so many years, you ended up cleaning the street?” I continued. “You should withdraw from the CCP. You’ve seen how serious the pandemic is. Heaven is eliminating bad people. If they don’t quit, those who joined the CCP and its affiliated organizations will be eliminated along with it.” He immediately agreed to quit using his real name.

My upstairs neighbor is a policeman. One day he whispered to me, “Auntie, I heard Falun Dafa has a list of names. Do you know about it? The list of names of those [who persecuted Dafa practitioners]?” He was asking me to check whether he was on the list.

“I don’t use the Internet,” I said. “But don’t worry, there is a way to be safe.”

He asked, “What is the way?”

“Just quit the CCP organizations you joined. If you then see practitioners distributing Dafa materials when you are on duty, you avoid them and pretend you did not see them. You will be blessed when you protect Falun Dafa practitioners.”

“Auntie, we have been neighbors for over ten years. I know you are a good person. I am from the countryside.”

“I am from the countryside as well. Young man, I treat you as my own child. Let’s protect each other. I will help you to quit the CCP. Everything will get better for you!”

I visited all my relatives and friends whenever I went to my hometown, and brought presents and informational pamphlets for each family. I chatted with them about our daily lives, and of course brought up the topic of Falun Dafa and the persecution.

Regardless of people’s social status, I did not look down on anyone, because Master told us: “ …everyone in the world was part of my family.” (“Teachings Given on Lantern Festival Day, 2003”)

I wanted to talk to everyone and save them. An elderly lady once held my hands and said, “You are doing good deeds all the time. How should I thank you?” I replied, “I’m following Master’s instructions. Please thank Dafa’s Master!”

A relative of mine is the CCP secretary in the village. He followed my advice and quit the CCP. In 2016, he went on a boat tour. When everyone was seated, someone asked him to go get some tools. A few seconds after he stepped off the boat, the boat exploded. Everyone was killed in the accident. He later told his grandmother that he was blessed and protected because he quit the CCP and recited, “Falun Dafa is good!”

Putting Others First When Clarifying the Truth

When I went out to clarify the truth to people, I always dressed well to give a good first impression. Every year, I attended all of my old classmates’ gatherings. I looked for those who had not yet quit the CCP and its affiliates, talked to them, and advised them to withdraw.

After years of practicing Dafa, Master has given me the best. Many former classmates did not recognize me because I looked so different from how I looked in the past. One classmate was very surprised, and said, “You used to be a dark-skinned girl. How are you fair-skinned now?”

Another classmate said, “You are getting younger, while we are getting older!”

I said, “Just look at me, you will know whether Falun Dafa is good or bad.” And, “You will all become younger and healthier if you keep reciting, ‘Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!’”

In order for people to feel more comfortable, I almost always clarified the truth to them individually.

When I took a tricycle taxi, I clarified the truth to the driver. I usually started the conversation from the topic of the pandemic or difficulties in life, and talked about the lies spread by the CCP. I also talked about the reasons behind pandemics, from the pandemic that took place around the end of the Ming dynasty to today’s coronavirus.

I then moved on to the persecution of Falun Dafa and the evil nature of the CCP, followed by how to stay safe by quitting the CCP and reciting “Falun Dafa is good!” When I got out of the taxi, I gave the driver an amulet and booklets to read and pass along to relatives and friends.

Many of them kept thanking me. Some even said, “I’m so lucky to meet you. If you did not tell me the truth, I would not know it, and I would be in danger!”

From my experience, while talking to small business owners, I usually had great results if I bought something from them. So I often went to the market, spent one or two yuan to buy some vegetables at a stand, and helped the owner quit the CCP.

One morning, I bought two luffa and helped the seller quit the CCP. In the afternoon, I met another predestined person whom I wanted to save. It happened he was a luffa seller as well. So I bought another two luffa from him and helped him quit the CCP. When I got home, my daughter-in-law was puzzled, “Why did you buy two luffa in the morning and two more in the afternoon?”

I laughed, “Oh, they looked so good that I bought two more.” She did not know that as a result of my buying the luffas, two people were saved.

One day, I advised a person to quit the CCP while talking next to a noisy bus stop, so I spoke quite loudly to him. After he quit, accepted a booklet, and left, I noticed there was a police officer on the other side of the bus stop. The officer didn't seem to hear me. I pressed my palms in front of my chest and thanked Master in my heart. It was Master who protected me!

I pay attention to safety when I clarify the truth in public. I do not stay in one place for a long period of time. After speaking to people in several shops, I go to another location to continue clarifying the truth, then return to the first place several days later. Each time, I remember which shop owners I have already spoken to. Eventually, I make sure all the shops are covered.

When I keep my thoughts righteous, Master always encourages and protects me.

Cultivating More Diligently

I have seen improvements to my mind and body while cultivating Dafa. Sometimes when I do the three things well, Master’s golden Fashen (law body) appears. During meditation, I sometimes see other dimensions, which are beautiful and lively. At times, I have seen an empty space in another dimension. I understood that Master was showing me that I should save more people so no place would be left empty.

Master told us:

“The Fa can break all attachments, the Fa can destroy all evil, the Fa can shatter all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts.” (“Drive Out Interference,” Essentials for Further Advancement II)

I immerse myself in the Fa every day, and remind myself to let go of everything in this human world. Only Dafa and saving people are important, nothing else!

Most people my age have health problems and need to be taken care of. I tell my son and his wife, “You know why I am so healthy, and why I can still cook for you. You should thank Dafa’s Master and often recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good.’”

My son, his wife, and their children are very respectful to Dafa. They have all quit the CCP and never stopped me from going out to save people. My daughter and her husband know the truth and have quit the CCP as well. They are all blessed by Dafa, and their work and lives have been very smooth.

I do not pay attention to ordinary people’s fame and gain. When my son bought a new apartment in a high-end community and invited me to live with them, I did not go because it was too far from the crowded places where I can easily meet people. I told myself that no matter how good a human living condition is, it cannot compare with a heavenly paradise. A comfortable life in the human world does not help in cultivation.

I go out every day to save people. I do not think of it as a duty or task. It is something I really want to do. I am so happy to see more people get saved. If I did not do well, I apologize to Master, “Master, I am so sorry I didn’t do well today. I regret it. I will improve.” I talk to Master often.

My son’s family lived with me for a period of time. My son and his wife were busy, and sometimes came home and went to sleep very late. In order not to disturb them, I did not have my alarm clock go off in the morning. I relied on myself to get up instead. On hot summer nights, I did not keep the air conditioner on in order to avoid getting too comfortable and miss the morning exercises.

I treated laziness and enjoyment as my enemies. In order not to miss the time to send righteous thoughts at midnight, I did the one-hour seated meditation before 11:00 p.m. When I finished the meditation, I washed my face and sent righteous thoughts. Each time we send forth righteous thoughts there is a battle between good and evil, and I take it seriously.

I want to cultivate more diligently and follow Master to return to my true home!
