(Minghui.org) I’d like to tell you how I became the most trusted employee for a private business. 

I was in my early thirties, had a university degree and was the head of the finance department in a commercial bank in 1996. I was on the fast track to a plush, comfortable life. One day in the summer a colleague told me that there was a very good qigong practice which was different from the others—Falun Dafa. He suggested I try it. I agreed since I didn’t have much to do that weekend. He gave me some video tapes and said that they were eye opening. 

When I watched the first lecture by Dafa’s founder, Master Li Hongzhi, I felt that it was indeed very good—so in two days I watched all nine lectures. On Monday I told my colleague that I wanted to learn how to practice Falun Dafa. He introduced me to a local practice site. I started to practice Falun Dafa not because I wanted to heal illnesses or keep fit, but because by watching Master’s lectures my questions were answered and I knew I’d found the meaning of life. 

My illnesses, including rheumatoid arthritis soon disappeared. I felt so wonderful to be illness free. No words can describe that amazing feeling! 

I was granted an Intermediate Accountant and Economist Qualification Certificate in 1997. My wife was a section chief in a city bureau while my daughter was an outstanding student at school. We had a spacious apartment. My relatives, friends, neighbors and colleagues all admired us. 

I held myself to Falun Dafa’s principles, Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. I didn’t use a penny of public money. I once handed in over 200,000 yuan in left over cash when our bank converted maturing bonds. I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and know the principles of “no loss and no gain,” and “good deeds are rewarded while bad ones are punished.” I have Dafa’s principles in my heart and Master’s teachings to guide me.

In China, it’s normal for someone in my position to receive gifts, which amount to small bribes for favors. I always returned them and said, “I don’t accept any gifts because I practice Falun Dafa. I will help you where I can and I will not abuse my power.” They understood. If I was unable to return the gifts, I asked my office administrator to keep them. When I was asked to train the employees I contributed all my lecture fees to cover office expenses. If I didn’t practice Falun Dafa, I would not be able to hold myself to high standards in this corrupt world. 

As a child from an ordinary worker’s family, through my own efforts, I lived a comfortable life. After I began practicing Falun Dafa I became a good person with high moral standards. It was truly a blessing!

My life was happy and fulfilled when the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) started to persecute Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999.

“I 100% Trust Falun Dafa Practitioners”

After the persecution began, I went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. I also organized local practitioners to distribute truth-clarifying materials on a large scale to expose what was happening. I was demoted from my position as section chief, and I was arrested three times. I spent a total of 7 years in detention centers, prisons and forced labor camps. 

I was fired after I came back home from prison. With other practitioners’ help, I found a part time accounting job and some other part time jobs. I always complied with Dafa’s principles at work. 

At the end of 2012, a relative in another city asked me to be the accountant for his private business. I was in charge of the finances for his three companies. His daughter was the accounts payable. The boss found that his daughter often embezzled money for her own use, so he asked me to take over. 

I told him, “It’s easy to make mistakes. Because there are no restraints it’s easy to abuse this position.” My boss said, “I have read Falun Dafa books. I know Falun Dafa practitioners are the best people in the world. As long as the person is a true cultivator, he will be strict with himself. There won’t be any problems. You gave up everything you owned in order to uphold your belief. Of course I believe that you will do your work well.”

I have worked for this business for 8 years. 

I was strict with myself and didn’t mix business funds with my own personal money. Sometimes for urgent matters, I used my personal funds to settle the accounts for the company and then later transferred business funds back to my own account. Each year I handled millions of funds and never made a mistake. On one occasion, a production fund for tens of thousands yuan was transferred to the company. My boss forgot all about it. I then transferred the money to his wife. 

My boss discussed the issues he had with the factories, production, and even his personal life with me. He asked for my opinion and regarded me as his close friend. 

He left the sales cash with me and was not concerned with how I spent it. When I purchased office supplies such as computers, printers, photocopiers and fax machines, he never questioned me. I asked the suppliers to issue invoices for the actual amount and I never asked them to issue a bigger amount, which is a popular practice in China. I never used public funds for personal purpose. No matter how much money was involved, I didn’t have a single thought of being greedy. 

The boss never signed for the payments of any purchases—I did. Sometimes I asked him to have a look at the amount we were spending. He always said, “I don’t need to see them. You handle it all.” He knows that practitioners are the best people and most trust-worthy. He said, “I 100% trust Falun Dafa employees.”

He never asked where the money went or checked the accounts. When I asked for his opinion, he always said, “You decide whatever is suitable. I 200% trust you.” He and his wife regarded me as their “house keeper” and a member of their family. 

I transferred some small balances of left over funds to a debit card.

The company sold a dump truck in August 2018 for 12,000 yuan. Two thousand yuan was later spent and I still had the 10,000 yuan. My boss didn’t mention this money even when the company’s cash flow was tight. He must have forgotten about it. I deposited the money on the debit card. 

On one occasion my boss transferred 8,000 yuan to my bank account before he went on a business trip and asked me to keep it for his use several days later. But he didn’t ask for it after he returned from the business trip. I transferred it to that debit card. I often transferred the small balances of some transactions to that card. There was over 40,000 yuan on that card. My boss spent money generously, so I thought this card might be useful for him if he had cash flow problems in the future. 

His factory was busy in spring, summer and autumn but things were quiet in the winter. His entire family went on holiday in the south for at least one month and sometimes three months in winter. He handed me the keys to his safe where he kept cash, foreign currencies and jewelry. He called me when he needed anything from the safe. He also asked me to keep the keys to his office, factory and home. Sometimes he asked me to stay in his home for ten days or two weeks while they were away and gave me all the keys and password to the safe. They regarded me as a family member. 

My boss’s house has many rooms. Sometimes he asked me to look for something. I had to search downstairs and upstairs. He and his wife were careless and left cash everywhere. I never took advantage of it. 

He asked me to recommend some practitioners to him when he needed to hire workers. He needed someone to look after security and the boiler, so I recommended one practitioner. This practitioner was very disciplined and did his job well. 

My boss doesn’t practice Falun Dafa but he knows that Falun Dafa is good. As time goes on, more and more people admire practitioners and see that practitioners are good and trustworthy people. 

Final Remark

People often ask me if I regret losing my plush job at the bank because I practice Falun Dafa. I tell them, “People have different goals. I have obtained things that many people want to have but cannot. My entire family has benefited from my practicing Falun Dafa.”

I am so fortunate and honored to be a Falun Dafa practitioner. I feel proud that I am my boss’s most trusted employee. Everything I have is bestowed by Master. Master educates me and guides me to be a better person with the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I will be more strict with myself and be worthy of the title of Falun Dafa practitioner!
