  • Despite the Arduous Path, Under Teacher's Protection I Maintain Unwavering Determination

    In 1999, the persecution against Falun Dafa officially started. Many practitioners gave up their cultivation under such huge pressure. My mind felt heavy. I quietly told Teacher, "Your disciple will steadfastly cultivate in Falun Dafa to the very end." At the time, I only knew that Falun Dafa had been attacked and Teacher had been slandered, and that I should take a firm stand against such actions. On the 9th of June in 1999, fellow practitioners and I went to Beijing to peacefully appeal for a stop to the persecution.
  • Our Righteous Thoughts Must Be Strong When We Introduce Falun Dafa and the Persecution to People

    I started practising Falun Dafa in August of 1997. Even though I have being practising for quite a while, I have not been doing well with regard to letting people know about the persecution that is taking place against those who practise Falun Gong. It seemed that I had very few breakthroughs in clarifying the true facts about Falun Gong.
  • A Mountain District Farmer's Experience in Practising Falun Gong

    The town officials, knowing that we were firm practitioners, wanted to persecute us. They made four signs and hung them on us, then paraded us down the street. They put two signs on me, one of them saying, "Falun Gong Core Member." We had to stand for a long time on the road while people watched us. I thought that this was a good opportunity to promote the practise, so I smiled at the others and I was not cowed by the public humiliation.
  • A Young Man from New Zealand Changes His Ways and Becomes a Good Person after Practising Falun Gong

    After practising Falun Gong, Xiao Hu got rid of all his bad habits and found a job selling fruit in a fruit stall. He puts lots of leaflets and newspapers in his stall to expose the persecution and explains the facts of Falun Gong to people whenever he gets a chance.
  • Understandings of "Maintaining Security" and "Fear"

    After reading the Falun Gong teachings in the book Zhuan Falun, all of my illnesses were healed, and my moral standard also improved. I became a completely different person. I strongly believe that every person who practices and genuinely follows the teachings will benefit both physically and spiritually. Falun Gong benefits the people and the nation and harms no one. However, out of jealousy, Jiang Zemin launched the persecution against Falun Gong, slandered our Teacher, made that which is good seem bad, and bad seem good, and trampled the most wonderful principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance."
  • Give Teachers and Students a Chance to Learn the Facts

    After the class, the young practitioner wrote a long letter to the teacher and told him the truth about Falun Gong. After reading the letter, the teacher said to the young practitioner, "You are the first student I have met who wrote to the teacher with an honest and sincere heart. I have remembered your words and from now on I will not say those things again." One time the teacher distributed test papers. The young practitioner noticed that one question on the paper defamed Dafa and she immediately pointed it out to the teacher. The teacher said, "Everyone, you don't need to answer that question."
  • A Former Scientist from China's Science Academia: Witness to History

    Everybody in the cell dared to defy Jiang's order to strictly monitor practitioners and, despite the danger of been punished themselves, did their best to help me, because they all knew the truth about Falun Dafa. They all knew that practitioners were truly good people. That was what they did, sincerely, for a practitioner who was being persecuted.
  • I Can Attend College Because of Falun Gong

    What caused the big change in my family? My dad started to practise Falun Gong at the end of 1996. All his illnesses disappeared soon after. He had no need to go to the hospital or take drugs. He has been well ever since. Soon after, my mom also began to practise. They have been very healthy and full of energy. The family savings have grown alongside the improvement in their health.
  • My Whole Family Is Bathed in Buddha Light

    They took the body to the hospital where my sister's daughter-in-law works and started to fabricate a story that they had taken him to the hospital after he committed suicide. When my sister's daughter-in-law saw the practitioner's lower body bleeding, she shouted out right in front of all the policemen, doctors and the practitioner's relatives, "This is not a suicide!" It shocked everyone there. The practitioner's family later won their lawsuit against the police using her words as evidence, and, as a result, these policemen were punished.
  • A Falun Dafa Practitioner's Experience of Distributing Factual Information About Falun Dafa in the Countryside of China

    I told him what I did and explained that I thought the family would oppose my action. My brother-in-law who is not a practitioner said, "I like it. The people here think that the Dafa leaflets must not have come from a local person, but from a very capable Falun Gong practitioner from elsewhere. They like the leaflet too. Some people also received one in an envelope. I guessed it was you who did it." I smiled at him. My brother-in-law said, "Give me some. I'll go with you."
  • With Strong Righteous Thoughts, I Was Able to Visit My Illegally Imprisoned Mother-in-Law

    Because she has refused to cooperate with the authorities and compromise her beliefs, the prison personnel have violated the law and prevented her family members from seeing her. My mother-in-law's resolute behaviour has encouraged other fellow practitioners' righteous belief in Falun Dafa. A friend of mine is acquainted with one of the prison guards, so through my friend, I made arrangements to see my mother-in-law.
  • Living Up to the Standard of a Falun Dafa Practitioner

    This man is 83 years old. He is in good health, speaks in a firm voice, and has a powerful stride. He not only lacks the signs of old age that most people his age possess, but also has the smooth skin of a middle-aged person with very few wrinkles. Mr. He Chao has practised Falun Gong for 10 years. He always has a compassionate smile and is often regarded as a living endorsement of the great benefits of Falun Gong cultivation. The following is his story.
  • Distinguishing Righteous Thoughts from Competitiveness

    Arriving at the police station, my first thought was to straighten myself out, to see where the problem was and why this had happened. I found that, though I appeared to have sufficient righteous thoughts, a lot of competitiveness and human feelings had been mixed in with those thoughts. This competitiveness had caused me to miss Master's hints time and time again.
  • Remembering When Teacher Taught the Fa at the Assistants' Fa Conference in Changchun, China in 1998

    Teacher repeatedly told us to seize the time to study the Falun Dafa teachings, practise the exercises, improve our heart and use the teachings in Falun Dafa as a guide at all times. During the ten-minute break, Teacher didn't even drink any water. Instead he stood beside the podium and answered practitioners' questions with regard to their cultivation.
  • The Chinese Embassy Unreasonably Refused my Passport Renewal in Germany

    At about 11.am a male officer who I had never seen before appeared; he was not very tall and in his forties. He was holding my passport in hand and said to me: “Qi Luyi, come with me, I want to ask you something.” He took me to a meeting room next door while he was talking to me. He asked me when I came to Germany, I told him the truth. Then he asked: “Did you practise Falun Gong in China?” I replied: “yes, I did.” “Are you still practising it?”, “Yes, I am” I replied.
