(Minghui.org) Practitioners have been told that Falun Dafa is an extraordinary science, and I believe that to be true.
I was arrested and detained at the Yushu City Detention Center around March 2002 by officers from the Changchun and Yushu City Police Departments. Subsequently, I was illegally detained at the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp for 3 years. Because I refused to renounce my belief in Falun Gong, I was tortured until I could no longer walk, sit or even eat. With my life in danger, and fearful that they would be held responsible for my death, the labor camp called my elder sister and told her to take me home.
Before my incarceration, I weighed 123 pounds. However, I weighed between 70 and 80 pounds on my release. When looking in the mirror, I could not recognize myself. Those who saw me were in shock, “How did this person end up like that?” Those who knew me could not recognize me.
Slowly I could walk again. My sister would walk behind me, and once laughed, “Anyone looking for an actress for the role of an elderly lady need not look far. You don’t even have to pretend.” Many times I heard bystanders say, “This person’s days are numbered.”
Even fellow practitioners were convinced I would not live for long. A fellow practitioner told me, “Eat steamed milk powder with eggs. This dish is highly nutritious.” I followed her suggestion but found myself unable to move after eating the dish. An invisible voice told me, “A practitioner has no use for everyday people’s idea of nutrition.” I came to the sudden realization that, as a cultivator, I should not rely on ordinary people’s notions, and instead follow the Falun Dafa principles.
I began to study the Fa and practice the exercises daily. Whenever relatives visited, I would clarify the facts about Falun Dafa, and described how I was persecuted in the labor camp. My relatives accepted the truth about Falun Dafa, and all willingly quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.
Within a month, I gained 15 pounds and was able to get around on my own. Dafa’s miraculous abilities healed my body, fully displaying the supernormal science of Falun Dafa. On seeing me ride a bicycle, one practitioner was left speechless for a long time.
As a hairdresser, I take advantage of my job to clarify the facts behind the persecution of Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) to my customers, before persuading them to quit the CCP. I do this for all my customers, and so far more than 90% of them have agreed to quit the CCP.
Each of my customers would be given Falun Dafa truth-clarification materials. Many accepted them readily. In particular, the contents of the book, the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party resonated well with many readers. “The person who wrote this book has amazing abilities. I know Falun Dafa practitioners study the book Zhuan Falun – lend me Zhuan Falun so I can also read this book.” There were many who wanted to borrow it.
During peak periods when I found myself unable to cope due to the influx of customers, I would ask fellow practitioners to come to my shop and help clarify the facts. Some customers even volunteered to help us distribute the truth-clarification materials to their friends.
After clarifying the truth to virtually all my regular customers, I rented out my hairdressing shop. Thus, I could still have a regular income, yet use my newfound freedom to visit the countryside, clarifying the facts and awakening sentient beings face to face. A regular economical haircut costs 10 yuan. In order to reach out to more people, I only charged five yuan per person and offered my services for free to the elderly who were less well off. My services soon became highly popular.
After working in the countryside for over 10 years, practically everyone knew that I practice Falun Dafa. Wherever I go, those who recognize me say, “[The person who practices] Falun Dafa is here.” Yet others shout “Falun Dafa is good!” Some approach me to obtain the latest truth-clarification materials, and others ask me to clarify the nature of the CCP. Regarding the latter, I said that the CCP originated from an evil ideology solely to destroy mankind.
Once, I entered a crowded, small shop in a village. A young man saw me and said, “Everyone in this room already quit the CCP.” I took a closer look and realized these were indeed familiar faces. These were people to whom I had clarified the facts some time ago.
However, there was an unfamiliar man in his 40s, sitting at the northern end of the house. I walked over and asked if he was the owner of the store. The man told me he usually traveled out of the village to work and was not familiar with the movement to quit the CCP.
I told him, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. Our Master taught us to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, to value virtue, to cultivate selflessness, to be considerate, and always think of the needs of others before our own needs. The CCP on the other hand practices falsehood, evil ways, and encourages conflict. Not only that, it also encourages people to hate the Buddha Fa, while promoting its philosophy of atheism and conflict in order to destroy our moral values. Their political campaigns have caused the death of 80 million compatriots.”
I continued, “Now they have turned to persecuting Falun Gong and harvesting organs from live Falun Gong practitioners. There will be retribution from heaven and this evil entity will be destroyed. Those who have joined the CCP, Communist Youth League, and Young Pioneers are considered affiliated to the organization and will receive retribution when heaven decides to destroy the CCP. You should quit the Party and sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” in order to survive this catastrophe safely. By renouncing your connections, you will receive protection from the Gods.”
The man told me he wore a red scarf as a member of the Young Pioneers in school and asked me to help him withdraw. He personally escorted me to the door when I was ready to leave. He gave me his sincere wishes and asked me to make sure of my continued safety. I thanked him from deep within my heart.
Before practicing Falun Dafa, I suffered from lumbar disc herniation, arthritis, athlete’s foot, and hemorrhoids. My herniated lumbar disc was rather severe, I could only lie flat on the bed, unable to even turn over. I recovered quickly from my illnesses after practicing Falun Dafa. No longer did I spend a single cent on treatment and medication, which demonstrated Dafa’s omnipotence and extraordinary science.
