Bringing the Truth Wherever I Go
A Memorable Day

I feel grateful whenever I recall the time on July 25, 1997, the day I stopped at the Falun Gong practice site, read the brief introduction, and started practicing Falun Gong. It was a hot day. I was sweating, and my feet were numb after practicing the exercises, but I insisted on completing all the exercises and felt great. Once at home again, no one told me what I should do. I got off all my medications, gave up many attachments such us dancing, playing cards, smoking and drinking. Ten days after that, I obtained Master's portrait and the Dafa books. Seeing Master's portrait for first time, I was so emotional that I cannot describe it in words. Master seemed to be so warm and kind, and I felt like I knew him from before.
I used to have wide-ranging interests. Since beginning the practice I devoted myself fully to Dafa. One month after that, I started to eliminate karma. I developed flu-like symptoms. I realized that Master was there to eliminate karma. I could not let him down. I forced myself to sit straight in the lotus position and meditated. Following that, all the symptoms were gone. Chronic ailments such as back pain, arthritis, and gastroenteritis were gone.

One Chinese New Year's eve, I awoke with severe stomach pain, like a knife cutting into my abdomen. I ate a pear, and the stomach pain was gone instantly. When I had a headache, I would stand outside and let cold air blow on me, and my headache would be gone immediately. Many miracles happened after I practiced Falun Gong, and I will not list them all here. However, in my first cultivation period, when I believed in Master and Dafa, many miracles happened.

Speaking Out and Assisting Master to Rectify the Fa

Since the onset of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) of Falun Gong persecution in 1999, lies and rumours were all over the place. People were frightened and my family was in a panic, but not me. I went to the provincial agencies and Beijing to explain the goodness of Falun Gong and to expose the persecution.

I have been held many times at police stations, at detention centres and a forced labour camp. However, no matter where I was detained, I would speak out and tell people the facts about Falun Gong. I also told my family and my children that the state-run TV and radio stations were broadcasting many fabrications and warned them not to listen. I also told them, "I used to be a person who was selfish and only enjoyed my personal life. I have changed since I practiced Falun Gong. My morals improved and my illnesses disappeared. You have seen this with your own eyes." My words calmed my family. They were no longer so fearful and stood by me.

One day at work people were discussing the topic of Falun Gong. I joined the conversation and explain the goodness of Falun Gong to them.

After appealing for Falun Gong in the city, I was arrested and detained at the local police station. As soon as I got there at 3:00 p.m., I spoke with the police officials about the goodness of Falun Gong and the persecution until 10:00 p.m., and everyone listened silently. Finally, they decided to let me go, and some of them even paid for a taxi for me.

When I went to appeal for Falun Gong in Beijing, five people from my work place and local police went to Beijing and arrested me. I was unafraid and told them the facts on the way back. With my righteous thoughts at work, those five people were friendly to me and listened to what I said.

Many people were at the local police station when I checked in at 9:00 p.m. I kept talking, and the listeners began to respond. Someone said, "If I knew of Falun Gong before I would have practiced it and not committed a crime." I knew that what they heard resonated with them.

There were many examples like this. As practitioners we should let people know the goodness of Dafa wherever we are, and tell them that Falun Dafa is good.

Facing the unlawful interrogations at the Procuratorate, I remained calm, because I have done nothing wrong. I answered their questions with compassion.

Two officials asked me why I went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. My reply was, "Is Beijing not the capital and the location of the central government? Isn't it right to seek government support when a citizen encounters a problem? Is there any rule that a citizen is forbidden to go to Beijing? Do I have a right to appeal?" They countered, "You must hate this government since you are detained." I replied, "No, I do not." "Why is that? "I am a Falun Gong practitioner, and we believe in Truth-Compassion-Forbearance. Master told us that other people may treat us badly, but we must treat everyone well, even the people who are against us. As cultivators, we don't have enemies." They were moved and said, "You may have to stay here for a while. Our conversation is completed, however." They eventually dropped their three years of forced labour charge against me.

Anything I have done is under Master's protection. Because of my true belief, Master is always there to protect me.

The persecution has continued for nine years. I have felt Master's support and protection at all times. When I was in the labour camp, forced to work with my hands, my mind was busy memorizing the Fa. With the strength from Dafa, I passed all kinds of tests.

I was captured the last time because a former practitioner reported my activity to the police. I did not complain. I was settled in, clear in my mission, and knew that I would be released with dignity, which is what happened. I did not knowledge this persecution, but rather faced it with calm and did not cooperate with it. I shall continue to cultivate myself and get rid of human attachments.
