  • Recalling the Days of Teacher's Lectures in Guangzhou

    When I was a teenager, I wondered why I hadn't been born in ancient India 2500 years ago, and thus couldn't personally hear the Buddha Law. I thought sentient beings could no longer transcend the Three Realms and that we would have to go through the reincarnation cycle of samsara forever.
  • The Thoughts of a Law Enforcement Official in China

    The Chinese Constitution stipulates that citizens may believe in religion or not believe in religion; they may choose to have any religious faith. As Chinese citizens, Falun Gong practitioners' faith in Falun Dafa is within their rights granted by the Constitution. Theirs is a faith in the practice's ability to enhance physical and emotional health as well as longevity, to elevate their moral character, develop compassion and truthfulness, enabling them to let go of greed, do good work, be a good wife or husband, a good parent to their children, be respectful of their parents, and to promote family harmony and a peaceful life.
  • Jiang Zemin and his Faction Blocks Words Such as "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance" on the Internet

    Actually Falun Gong has spread to over 60 countries and is legal in all of them, and has been issued over 1200 proclamations from different countries and groups. In China, Jiang's persecution of Falun Gong is totally based on lies and slander spread through the media. If information flows freely on the Internet, Jiang's lies will be exposed quickly. Then nobody will trust him anymore. Here we can see clearly why Jiang and his clique blocks the Internet: liars are always afraid of the truth!
  • Violent Incident to Stop the People's Appeal - Jiang's Regime Extends Persecution Beyond Falun Gong

    Since July of 1999, when the persecution of Falun Gong began, many Falun Gong practitioners have appealed to the "Two Appeal Offices" in Beijing, as stipulated under existing law. They were arrested and brutally beaten by the police and officials in Beijing and other cities. Most of them were taken to their area offices, which are based in Beijing. There they were tortured and then sent back to their hometowns for further persecution. They were cruelly beaten, money was extorted from them, and they were detained in forced labour camps. This kind of persecution has now been extended to the greater populace of China.
  • A Stubborn Illness is Healed and the Body is Completely Rejuvenated with Energy

    I suffered from all kinds of tribulations, and my whole body was severely ill. As a middle-aged person, I also suffered from stubborn colonitis. In an attempt to heal my illnesses I spent a large amount of money, but my health continued to worsen. When I was nearing the point of losing hope, a kind-hearted person told me about Falun Gong, and advised me to practice it.
  • A Dedication

    For all of the millions of Falun Dafa practitioners in China today who continue to brave the fiercest of tempests, the unprecedented, relentless and brutal persecution against such a peaceful and traditional exercise practice.
  • A New Lease on Life in Six Months of Practicing Falun Dafa After Suffering From Debilitating Disease of the Nervous System

    The doctor told me, "This disease has been with you for at least twenty years, otherwise it could not have developed to this stage. This is a very rare disease and little is known about it. It will cause the muscles to continue to shrivel. There is no cure." The only way to preserve my life was to consume the spinal cord of a deer and trace elements. It was like a lightning bolt out of the blue! I could not do any household chores, and after lying down for a long time, the pain on the left side of my body was unbearable. I could not even sit still for half an hour.
  • Dialogue in a College Dormitory: "Why Haven't We Ever Considered These Questions?"

    I am a college student in Shandong Province, China, but I have had the most extraordinary experiences over the past five years because my mother is a determined Falun Gong (or Falun Dafa) practitioner. Jiang Zemin started his senseless persecution against Falun Gong on July 20th, 1999, and after five years I continue to be touched by the efforts of practitioners in China. They have been unfailingly peaceful in the face of the ruthless torture and persecution, and they persevere in practicing Falun Gong and in telling people the truth about Falun Gong.
  • Who Is the Prime Culprit in "Using Classified Documents to Defy the Law"?

    But in reality, according to discussions by specialists, to reconsider the application, or not regarding the document in relation to an administration issue, many central departments simultaneously transmitted the suppression decision documents to lower levels, which was in accordance with the order issued solely by Jiang Zemin that unilaterally represented the Party, the government, and the laws to order the transmission of the documents to lower levels. The procedure was illegal and in reality was in open defiance of the law.

  • Letter from a Spanish Lawyer to the Chinese Judiciary and Forced Labour Camps Appealing to Stop the Jiang Regime's Genocide

    "Out of respect and love for the Chinese people, plus to protect human rights, I cannot remain silent when confronting this brutal and illegal persecution. Human rights is the basic value of human kind, the human rights of everyone should be protected no matter where it is. As a human being, I should offer my help to people who have been persecuted for five years. Therefore, as a lawyer, I have filed lawsuits against Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan and Jia Qinglin in Spain. They are accused of committing genocide and torture."
  • Grumbles from China Central Television Employees

    "...What's the disagreement? The regime is fighting with the public. Furthermore, Falun Gong practitioners are all good people, and it's very hard to find them doing anything bad. You're forcing us to a fake program to denigrate Falun Gong, to frame Falun Gong by claiming they kill people? How can we do that kind of thing? We have no choice but to scrape it together! What is being broadcast are all fake films anyway. This will be just another failed political movement at the whim of Party elite. Those who suffer will all be common people!"
  • The After Effects of My Concussion Went Away

    One day in mid-March of 1997, I had the most unforgettable day of my life. I met a friend on the street, and she asked me to go to practice Falun Gong. I didn't think much of it and went with her. At that time I knew nothing about the practice, I just followed the movements. Then, after a few days I suddenly had a big appetite. I ate three bowls of rice in one meal, whereas before I could only eat a small clump of rice due to the gastritis for the past decades. Without noticing, all the uncomfortable symptoms I had in the past disappeared completely.
  • Weathering the Storm, Chapter 1 of Part One

    Their unanimous verdict was that intracranial artery aneurysm is a rare and difficult disease to treat and the international medical community has yet to develop an effective cure for this disease. But after practising Falun Gong for just two months, my intracranial artery aneurysm miraculously disappeared. I experienced the joy of being completely healthy for the first time in my life. On July 20th, 1999, the regime of the former Chinese President Jiang Zemin violated the Constitution of the People's Republic of China and started a ruthless persecution against Falun Gong and its practitioners
  • An Inmate Asks Me to Teach His Child How to Behave

    With tears in their eyes, several inmates were very emotional and told me that if they had known Falun Gong and its teachings were about how to be a good person, they wouldn't have committed their crimes or ended up so badly. Each person involved in beating me up under police instructions came to apologise and asked me to forgive him for his wrongdoing under police pressure.
