People Acknowledge That Falun Dafa Is Good
(Minghui.org) Because of Falun Dafa practitioners’ persistent efforts, more and more people in China have understood the facts about the practice and acknowledge that Falun Dafa is good.
I would like to share three incidents in which people have appreciated the goodness of Dafa and quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its organizations.
“Nothing Can Stop It from Spreading”
I once talked to a taxi driver about Falun Gong. The driver, who was a native of Hunan Province, told me, “There are people practicing Falun Gong in my hometown. When I went to Hong Kong, I saw people practicing Falun Gong openly. It's legal and free to practice Falun Gong in Hong Kong.”
“That's right,” I said. “Falun Gong has spread to more than 100 countries and regions. Only in China is it banned.”
“Regardless of how the practice is persecuted, nothing can stop it from spreading,” he commented.
I continued, “Falun Gong practitioners are trying to tell people about the universal values of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, despite the risk of being persecuted. If everyone could follow such values, we probably won’t have so many counterfeit goods.”
The driver agreed. He also agreed to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
“This CCP Is Too Evil, One Must Quit It”
A few times when I was telling someone about Falun Gong, passersby listened in and took the initiative to quit the CCP.
Once, I was telling a banana vendor about Falun Gong and answering his questions when a woman of Hui ethnicity came over and asked if I was helping people to quit the CCP.
When I said I was, she said, “I want to quit. The Party is so terrible, we have to quit it.”
After the woman left, I continued to talk to the banana vendor, who also decided to quit the Party. Then the woman came back with her relative and asked me to help him quit, too.
I once spoke to a young woman selling peanuts and sunflower seeds at a market about quitting the Party when another woman came to buy peanuts. Although the vendor said nothing while I was talking, I was not anxious and continued to talk. The other woman heard me and said, “I've read your materials. They say that we should recite something. What was that again?”
I told her, “Say, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ and things will go well for you.”
The woman recited it a few times with me. After that, the vendor agreed to quit the Party when I asked her again.
Calligraphy Professor Tells Me about Falun Dafa
I have heard many touching stories when telling people about Falun Gong. An elderly professor particularly impressed me.
I was taking the bus and stood next to an elderly man, who was seated. He was reading a book on calligraphy. I said to him, “Calligraphy is a good thing that our ancestors left to us.”
He agree and asked, “Do you know calligraphy?”
I told him that I loved it when I was young but I gave up when the school stopped teaching it. I said I still loved calligraphy and would try to write a few characters in my spare time.
The man told me that he was a member of the provincial calligraphy association and had been a guest professor at different universities in the city. He was on his way to another university to give a lecture and even invited me to his class.
We had a pleasant talk and chatted about how China’s traditions have been abandoned. But I noticed that he was cautious with his words. He said to me, “Some things are inconvenient to say on the bus. Where are you getting off? Let's talk after that.”
After we got off the bus, he told me about his life in detail. He was originally a talented student at Tsinghua University, but because he had his own views on Mao's policies, he was sent to the border area in Xinjiang. He worked hard there all his life. He told me that he even picked up an abandoned infant on the road on a snowy day and raised him. He was very kind.
We also talked about Falun Gong. He told me about it in great detail, maybe even better that I, a Falun Gong practitioner, could have done.
“Before 1999, all the media said Falun Gong was good. How could it turn bad just because they later said it was bad? The CCP always lies. I don't believe it,” he told me.
“Do you know why I'm so healthy even though I'm already in my 70s?” he asked.
“Why?” I asked.
“The first thing that I do every morning after I wake up is to say, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ Then I go about my daily life after saying it several times. When I make dumplings during the annual festivals, I offer the first dumplings to pay my respects to Master Li before paying my respects to my ancestors,” he said.
I was so touched to hear this. Before we parted, I helped him quit the CCP.
