(Minghui.org) Greetings, Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!

I would like to tell you about my cultivation experiences during this past year while clarifying the truth at the Immigration Services Agency of Japan and in front of the National Diet Building.

Clarifying the Truth to Chinese

Last year, there were no tourists from China due to the pandemic. As Falun Dafa practitioners we know that our mission is to awaken people's consciences. I thought about heading over to the immigration services agency since many Chinese have to go there. Over the years, I’ve encountered all kinds of people. Some understand and support Falun Dafa and are willing to defend us while others curse, hit, or spit at us. Some people even look at us with hatred and contempt. It is truly sad to see those people who are deceived by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

We had to stay outside the immigration agency since few people were allowed inside during the pandemic. Wearing a mask because of the CCP virus (coronavirus) made everything worse since it was very hot and humid last summer. My chest felt tight and it was hard for me to clarify the truth. Some days I sweat so much that my shirt was drenched.

Another practitioner and I set up informational posters and distributed truth-clarification materials for over three hours. When the agency employees changed shifts, some of them exclaimed, “They are still here in this hot weather? Are they okay?” They looked dumbfounded. Everyone wants to stay inside an air-conditioned building and be comfortable. It was difficult for them to understand why we would forego comfort to save people.

A practitioner’s relative brought us cold drinks and said, “Someone in my family practices Falun Dafa. Thank you for your hard work. This is my token of appreciation. Please accept it.” One day a foreigner brought us bottles of water. Sentient beings take everything we do to heart and they know it is not easy to stay out in the sun.

Several Chinese people asked me, “Why do you practice Falun Dafa?” I tell them that Falun Dafa raises one’s moral standards and has benefited the health and minds of many people. I said, “I’ve personally benefited so much from such a great practice. Shouldn’t I speak up for Falun Dafa when it is being persecuted?”

When I clarified the truth to a Chinese man at the immigration agency last month, he quickly agreed to quit the CCP and its youth organizations. I realized another man was listening to our conversation while he looked at the poster board. As I gave him truth-clarification materials I said, “Sir, over a hundred million people practice Falun Dafa. The Tiananmen Square self-immolation is a hoax.” He interrupted me and said something disrespectful about Master, then he asked where Master was.

I said, “Sir, you should be respectful of my master.” He nodded and asked when I began practicing Falun Dafa. I told him I started in 1997 by reading the book Zhuan Falun. He said, “I began earlier than you. I attended the Jilin lecture classes and listened to Master’s lectures. I stopped practicing when the persecution started.”

I said, “Falun Dafa is now practiced all over the world but the CCP is interfering with it. The ultimate goal of the CCP is to prevent people from obtaining the Fa. This is a once-in-a-millennium opportunity that you should cherish. You are predestined to encounter Falun Dafa again. You should learn the truth about Dafa, quit the CCP and its youth organizations, and return to cultivation.” He was worried and asked, “What will happen if the CCP finds out that I quit? I am returning to China soon.”

I assured him, “You are not in China now. What is there to be afraid of? Everything the CCP says is misleading and contradictory. Disasters are happening right now in China because of the CCP. It is a huge sin to persecute the Buddha Fa. Falun Dafa practitioners are helping people stay safe amidst the pandemic in China. You should quit the CCP and only then will you be safe. Let me give you a pseudonym so you can quit the Party.” He hesitated but then said, “Alright! I’ll quit!” After he said that, I felt that many negative substances were eliminated in his dimensional field.

As I watched him walk away, I truly hoped that he would return to cultivation. Master is very compassionate to give him one more chance and also helped him quit the Party.

I told one young man who stopped to read the poster board, “Look, Falun Dafa is practiced in over 100 countries and regions by over a hundred million people. Please don’t believe the CCP’s propaganda. Falun Dafa practitioners are rational and peacefully protest the persecution.”

He kept listening so I continued, “Let me give you a pseudonym to quit the CCP and its youth organizations” He said, “You can call me Ba Jie.” I said, “All right, we will use that name to help you quit the Party. Please remember to sincerely say, 'Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' Calamities will turn into blessings and misfortune will turn into good luck!” The young man nodded and left with a truth-clarification flyer.

My heart feels at ease every time I can help someone quit the CCP and its youth organizations. It is not easy for people who’ve been brainwashed by the CCP to understand the truth in such a morally degraded society. I can really feel the kindness in Chinese people when I clarify the truth to them.

One lady began to curse me after I handed her a truth-clarification flyer. I said that Falun Dafa is being wronged and practitioners are all good people. I asked her to understand the truth and said that cursing at people was not good for her. The lady threatened to hit me. The other practitioner attempted to stop her but she kept on cursing until the traffic light turned green and she walked away.

Her reaction was so unexpected. The immigration agency staff members were all staring at me and I didn’t feel right. I asked for Master’s help and realized that there was an elderly practitioner at the bus stop. Sure enough, when I got there, that same lady was cursing at the elderly practitioner. I said, “Please respect your elders. It is not right for you to curse her.” I thought she was being irrational and rude and didn’t even possess basic manners. I became very irritated. When the bus came the lady angrily got on it.

I wondered why this happened. Perhaps it was because I had loopholes in my cultivation. Looking inward, I did find several attachments. I was beginning to develop the attachment of zealotry because I felt very accomplished after distributing so many flyers. In addition, I also disregarded sending righteous thoughts. When encountering unreasonable people, instead of being compassionate, I became competitive. If I were steadfast in my cultivation, who would curse at a compassionate practitioner?

Master said,

“When your compassionate nature emerges, you will do things with much kindness. From your inner heart to your outer appearance, everyone will be able to see that you are really kind. At that point no one will mistreat you anymore.” (“Chapter III Cultivation of Character,” Falun Gong)

The attitudes of the immigration agency staff also changed after witnessing our persistence. Some of them said, “There used to be many people secretly taking pictures of you. If there are such people in the future, you can tell us.” Some staff members initially refused to take any truth-clarification materials, but as time passed, they began to accept the Epoch Times newspapers. Others walked over and asked for truth-clarification materials. When people asked us what we were doing there, I replied, “With the ongoing pandemic, I am here to tell people the best way to stay safe. We are putting the safety of others before ourselves.” When they heard this, the staff members all quietly listened.

Many people, especially those from China and Hong Kong, benefited from reading the poster boards. They would give us a thumbs up and ask what Falun Dafa was. Some wanted to practice the exercises while others inquired about Dafa books. Some young practitioners returned to the path of cultivation. As long as we step forward, Master will arrange for us to meet predestined people. Master only looks at the hearts of practitioners.

Clarifying the Truth in Front of the National Diet Building

I go to the National Diet Building one day a week. Last year when I handed the Epoch Times newspaper to a gentleman, he said that he’d gotten a copy at Shinjuku the day before and that it was a very good newspaper. We begin to chat and I asked, “Do you know about Falun Dafa? We are bringing former CCP head Jiang Zemin, who started the persecution, to justice. Would you like to sign the petition and show your support?” He signed right away and even asked if he could sign for others.

He said he would ask his friend to sign the petition. Sure enough, the gentleman came back a couple of hours later and signed the petition for his friend. As he signed, he said, “I have over 500 contacts and they are all against the CCP. I will help them sign this petition.” I told him that he would be blessed for doing that. I also told him that he was helping Falun Dafa practitioners in China and thanked him.

He got a call while he was signing the petition and had to go in the building. Before he left, he gave me his card and said, “I am a company CEO and I came here today to meet with a member of the National Diet.” He said that he would return to sign more signatures. We counted a total of 77 signatures, and the practitioners who were present were all very encouraged and touched. We thanked Master for arranging an environment for us to save sentient beings.

We had to stop clarifying the truth in front of the National Diet building when Japan declared the pandemic a national emergency. After the lockdown was lifted, we went back. Three police officers came over, and one of them said, “We thought something had happened to you because we hadn’t seen you in such a long time.” During the pandemic, the police often asked if we had any other activities or parades. It seems like ordinary people are very concerned. I know they have a side of them that’s aware and wants us to clarify the truth.

One day while we were rolling up our banners and getting ready to leave, about 16 college students came over. There was one banner still up, and the practitioner said, “People in China are being persecuted because they practice this exercise. We are collecting signatures to sue Jiang Zemin. Would you like to sign?”

The college students immediately signed the petition. They also encouraged us and hugged us. It was truly touching. Afterwards one practitioner said that she had wanted to leave early that day because her foot hurt but decided to stay until the end since there would only be one practitioner in front of the building if she left. She felt that Master was encouraging her to come out often to clarify the truth.

Many Japanese people’s attitudes have changed for the better when they see our banners. They’ve encouraged us to keep it up, and one member of the National Diet even told us, “Let me know if you need my help.” Many people are interested in learning the exercises or have tried to give us donations to show their support.

Many Japanese people have changed after going through the pandemic. They are looking for hope and positive things and are attracted to the vibrant colors of practitioners’ costumes and uniforms during parades and other activities. I feel like more Japanese people are about to obtain the Fa. We need to make the best use of our time to spread the wonder of Dafa.

I know that Master is making everything possible. My little physical discomfort is nothing! I feel better when I go to clarify the truth. I have truly benefited so much!

During the height of the pandemic last year, I had a dream in which I saw huge clusters of red viruses gathering together. It was similar to what was described in the Epoch Times. The clusters of red viruses floated upwards and then slowly spread. The viruses can never enter the houses of Falun Dafa practitioners.

Last summer, udumbara flowers grew on the grapes I placed in front of Master’s picture. Thank you, Master, for encouraging me! I will continue to save sentient beings however the world may change.

I would like to end with Master’s poem,

“Success at Consummation

Fame, gain, emotion—cultivate each away,And ascend to the Firmament at Consummation,See the human world with eyes of compassion,Then are you freed from the spell of delusion.”(Hong Yin, Translation Version A)
