I Understand that Falun Gong is Righteous

I Acquired a Clear Understanding that Falun Gong is Righteous
July 28, 2012 | By Xinliang, a Falun Dafa Practitioner in China
( One morning in April 2008, I noticed a plastic bag hanging on my motorcycle as I was pushing it out of the hallway of my apartment building. There were three well-printed booklets inside: The TruthUnder the Heavens and The Blessings which explained the facts about Falun Gong and the persecution.
After reading the booklets carefully, I began thinking about these questions: What is Falun Gong? Is it good or bad? Who are the people that practice it? The answers to these questions provided in the booklets were very different from what I’d heard from the media, so I wanted to learn more about Falun Gong and find the truth.
Soon after, I saw more materials about Falun Gong in a convenience store. I borrowed them from the owner, who was keen on having the materials back once I’d finished reading them. Subsequently, I got to know a Falun Gong practitioner who didn’t practice any of the common customs of everyday people – such as drinking, smoking, gambling, and visiting prostitutes. Further, he performed intelligently at work and treated everyone kindly. He was so selfless that he worked harder to help others than on his own work. My intuition told me that Falun Gong was righteous and that its practitioners were good people. Through him, I obtained many Falun Gong materials including a copy of the book Zhuan Falunand other lectures and writings by Teacher Li.
When I first brought these materials home, my wife was fearful, “Have you seen that police officers are arresting Falun Gong practitioners everywhere? Do you want to have a life or not?” I replied, “I’m just reading them. Is it a crime to read and learn about a matter?”
One evening, I was watching the DVD documentary serials Traveling Heaven and Earth Through Wind and Rain, which were about Falun Gong and the persecution. My wife sat beside me, and also took a look at the TV from time to time while knitting. Gradually, we were both moved to tears by practitioners’ narration of their persecution stories. Another documentary Horrors of Sujiatun Concentration Camp exposed the truth about live organ harvesting of practitioners by persecutors. I felt very sad about the killing of practitioners who believed in, and practiced Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, and was terrified by the horrible crimes against humanity that are beyond the imagination of any conscientious person. From then on, I’ve had a clear understanding about perceiving righteous from evil: Falun Gong is righteous, and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is evil.
From Zhuan Falun and Teacher Li’s other books, I learned that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is the sole criterion to discern good and bad people, and the universal law that all lives and matter are compliant to. I decided to follow this criterion and rectify my speaking and behavior in daily life, striving to be a good and selfless person. I became a Falun Dafa practitioner later in 2008.
I began explaining the facts about Falun Gong to others, to help eliminate their misunderstandings due to the government’s propaganda. One time, I asked a young couple if they were aware of Falun Gong and the persecution; they weren’t. I then asked them if they’d read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party - they said no again. I said, “You may want to read it in order to learn about something you haven’t heard of before.” However, they replied, “That’s not our business.” From this brief conversation, I realized that the couple was among those who’d taken the communist government’s brainwashing propaganda as factual.
Therefore, I started to explain my understanding of China’s reality. There were 539 emperors in China’s 5,000-year history, and most of them practiced benevolent governance that assured peaceful and stable lives for their people. Over the past 60-plus years since the Chinese Communist Party seized power, it has caused the deaths of over 80 million Chinese people who died of famine, or were killed during numerous political movements. Mao Zedong had a well-known statement, “I am not bound by any natural or human rules.” Later, Deng Xiaoping claimed, “It’s worth killing 200,000 people over 20 years for political stability.” In the last decade, Jiang Zemin launched the persecution against innocent Falun Gong practitioners who practice Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. He issued orders to all levels of the government nationwide, to “Ruin their reputation, bankrupt them financially, and destroy them physically.” Traditional Chinese culture treasures life, as indicated by tenets such as “A human life is of greater value than anything”. The CCP treats Chinese citizens’ lives as something they can take away at will. The CCP government’s focus on power, control and materialism is the root cause of the rapid decline of morality in today’s Chinese society. However, it is a cosmic principle that good will be rewarded with good, and bad with bad. The CCP’s followers who have committed wrongdoing will have to pay back debts as well. A huge, ancient rock engraved with the characters: “Chinese Communist Party Perishes” was found in Zhangbu Town, Pingtang County, Guizhou Province in 2002. This is a divine warning to the people who vowed to follow the CCP that they should withdraw from the party and its affiliated organizations.
My explanation changed the couple’s minds, and they said, “What you just said woke us up. We weren’t aware of those terrible actions committed by the CCP. Although we didn’t directly participate in those things, we’ve been members of the Young Pioneers, the Youth League, and the CCP. We were fooled and didn’t have a choice. Please tell us what we can do to save ourselves.” I then told them about the movement of quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Over the years, I’ve clarified the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution to many people, and some also withdrew from the CCP and its organizations.
