Spreading the Truth Everywhere
Spreading the Truth About the Persecution
During a time when the persecution of Falun Dafa was severe in our area, more than 20 local Dafa practitioners were detained. Our local practitioners felt that we should increase the amount of truth-clarification materials being distributed to better expose the persecution and lessen the pressure on our cultivators in detention. We needed more materials to expose the corrupt and violent nature of the Communist Party and help people to learn about Falun Dafa.
I had often heard from people in our communities that they had not received truth-clarification materials as frequently as a few years ago. Master said that we must help people understand the facts rather than merely having them withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. We must deliver the truth where it is needed, with our hearts immersed in saving people.
One of our practitioners produced high-quality materials with thoughtful packaging and delivered the finished products to four of us. We went out to distribute the materials in pairs. With righteous thoughts, we delivered the materials to places with a high concentration of officials involved in the persecution, such as the municipal government, county government and the local court.
We wanted to make the materials available to people in all the buildings, but we quickly found out that many of the buildings had strict security checks. So we mounted the materials on conspicuous walls and light poles for people to see. I revisited several buildings a few months later and found that some of the materials were still where we had posted them.
We also went back to a village and checked on materials that we had mounted on poles along the main roads. We found several villagers gathered around reading the materials and commenting on the cruelness of Jiang Zemin and the forced organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners.
“… each Dafa disciple has to fully play his role and proactively do what he should as a Dafa disciple. As you go about validating the Fa, whatever you think of, see, encounter, or can recognize, go ahead and do it, and only then are you walking your own path and forging your own mighty-virtue.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Meeting with Asia-Pacific Students” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference VI)
We did what we could. One of us distributed the materials to households, and the other mounted them in public places. We planned our trips carefully to make sure we covered both rural and urban areas. Despite a few obstacles along the way, we forged ahead on our path of saving people.
Dafa Practitioners Are One Body
We learned that many practitioners in a nearby city were detained. We felt that we needed to do something to help expose the persecution in this place where it was still so rampant, just as Master has encouraged us to do.
One practitioner in our group gathered a list of names of the persecutors involved from the Minghui website. We produced materials that focused directly on the persecutors themselves. We delivered the materials to major governmental and legal offices, as well as the residential buildings around them.
On one of the visits, another practitioner was walking out of a building when the guard at the gate shouted at her, “Are you Falun Gong?” and then, before she could answer, he said, “Falun Gong is working hard again.”
Thanks to Master's safeguarding her, she left the building safely. To the best of our knowledge, there have been no further detentions of Dafa practitioners in that city.
Last year we started using display boards for truth-clarification. We mastered the necessary techniques quickly and used them well; many more people now know in their hearts that Falun Dafa is good.
The practitioners in our group have been working collaboratively for many years on the three things that Master urged us to do. We have also grown and matured as a group. We will continue to work hard to save as many people as possible.
