Stories of People Learning About Falun Dafa on the Street in China
(Minghui.org) We are a group of Falun Dafa practitioners in China. The eldest practitioner is over 80, and the younger ones are in their 40s. The following are experiences from different practitioners while talking to the public about Falun Dafa and its ongoing persecution by the communist government in China.
People Are Awakening
I am in my 80s and worked at a government agency before I retired. I started practicing Falun Dafa to cure my health problems it saved my life.
We get booklets and pamphlets containing information about Falun Dafa every week at our study group, and I hand them out to the public in the days that follow. In recent years, I started handing out desk calendars. Many people respond positively, saying, “I know Falun Dafa is good.”
I gave a young man a copy of The Ultimate Goal of Communism. He said excitedly, “I've been looking for this book.” He took it and left happily.
Villager Protects Dafa Practitioner
I turned 50 this year. Several practitioners in our area often go to the countryside to distribute booklets about Falun Dafa. Usually, when I hand out materials, I talk to the person about Dafa and the persecution. Most people are appreciative of the information.
One time I met a villager in his 60s. He asked if I was giving out information about Falun Dafa. I said yes and gave him a booklet. He refused to take it, grabbed my bag, and threatened to report me to the police. I told him that I was a good person and had not done anything wrong, but he just wouldn't let me go. We were at an impasse for about ten minutes.
A second man then came over and said, “Let her do her thing. She's not doing anything wrong. Otherwise, I would help you take her to the police. Just let her go.”
But the first man still wouldn't release me.
The second man and I kept talking to him. After about 30 minutes, he relaxed his grip and I left.
On the way home, the second man caught up with me and offered to drive me home because he was concerned that the other man would make more trouble for me.
Changed by Dafa
I am 45 years old and started practicing Falun Dafa with my sister in July 2018. My sister used to read Zhuan Falun with me. I wasn't very diligent and didn't study the teachings by myself when she wasn't home. Even so, my mind and body underwent tremendous changes. People I meet tell me that I look great.
I used to look down on my husband and wouldn't cook his meals if I was angry. My husband worked hard, but I wasn't considerate at all. I just asked him for money.
After I learned Falun Dafa, my body and mind underwent great changes. I now think about others before myself. I care about my husband, and my family has become harmonious. My husband and son support my practicing Dafa.
I am over 70 years old. I have handed out informational materials about Falun Dafa for many years and am not afraid of being arrested. When I have a negative thought, I immediately send righteous thoughts to get rid of it. I know Master is always protecting me.
People used to acknowledge that Falun Dafa practitioners are firm in their belief despite the persecution. Now they know that Dafa practitioners bring hope to people.
Healing Effects of Falun Dafa
I was on the street one day, handing out the book, Life and Hope Renewed - The Healing Power of Falun Gong, when anelderly man came over and said, “Most people in our village have this book. They know it will help them recover from illnesses. Falun Dafa is amazing.”
A man in his 50s once told me, “Falun Dafa provides mental support for the common person. It brings us hope. Someone at our place was sick but wasn't cured at the hospital. He recovered by reading Falun Dafa materials and reciting, 'Falun Dafa is good’ and ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' It didn't cost him anything.”
I handed a copy of Life and Hope Renewed to a passerby about four years ago. He told me that a woman he knew used to suffer from a postpartum infection called puerperal sepsis. She spent over 100,000 yuan on medical treatment but didn't get better. Then she started practicing Falun Dafa and recovered without spending any money.
This woman continued to say, “Falun Dafa has spread in our village. Everyone knows that it is really good.”
An elderly woman told me that when she was at home one time, her head felt numb and she fell seriously ill. Her children were not around, so she sincerely recited, 'Falun Dafa is good’ and ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' four or five times.
She said that she felt something bad leave her body, and then she was back to normal again. She said to me, “Falun Dafa really can save lives.”
People Recognize the Evilness of the CCP
A retiree in his 70s once told me that he had read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. He said, “We all hope that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will collapse soon. It's not easy for people to live under their rule.”
As I handed out copies of the Nine Commentaries on the street another time, the head of the police department took a copy and asked me what it was about. I told him that the book unveiled the essence of the CCP and that the Party would soon collapse. He said, “Go ahead. Keep doing what you're doing.”
In 2018, I met an official who worked at the courthouse. He took a calendar containing Falun Dafa information and said, “Many of us in the court system read about Falun Dafa. We all know what it is and feel sorry for Dafa practitioners. There aren't enough good people in the world like you guys, yet such good people are still being persecuted. The Communist Party is inhumane. We will go abroad after we retire.”
People Waiting for the Truth
When I was handing out the book The Ultimate Goal of Communism on the street, I met a man from Shanghai in his 80s, who had been a soldier. He walked with difficulty and was short of breath, even with his daughter's assistance. He saw the book in my hand, and his eyes lit up.
After he took the book, he let go of his daughter, pressed his hands together, and said, “Thank you.” He said that he would take it back to Shanghai and wanted more copies to give to his friends. I gave him five copies. He walked a short distance and then turned around and waved to say goodbye.
A man working on the road saw me handing out the same book. He quickly came over and asked for ten copies that he could give to his colleagues.
One time, I was distributing the book at the morning market. Soon, I was surrounded by people who wanted the book and quickly ran out of copies to give out. The scene touched me.
Over the years, I've found that people are eager to get the facts about Falun Dafa.
