Letting People Know about Falun Gong in Remote Villages
(Minghui.org) I am 74 years old and live in a remote village in Liaoning Province. I started practicing Falun Gong in 1997.
There are four elderly Falun Gong practitioners in our Fa-study group. The eldest one is 74 and the youngest is 65 years old. For the past few years, we have traveled to rural areas to distribute DVDs, journals, and desk calendars that have information about Falun Gong.
We split into two groups and sent forth righteous thoughts to help clear away any negative elements in other dimensions before we start talking to people. One of us continues to send righteous thoughts while the others talk to the locals about Falun Gong and the persecution.
Young Man Changes His Attitude Towards Falun Gong
When we stopped at a farm a young man demanded to know who we were and why we were there. He figured out that we were Falun Gong practitioners and told us that he would call the police if we didn't leave immediately.
We remained calm and sent forth righteous thoughts to clear out the bad elements behind him in other dimensions. I then started out by asking him about his education, and told him that a relative of mine had graduated from Beijing University, just as he did.
He started to calm down a little, so I told him about Falun Gong and suggested that he withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
I told him that although Jiang Zemin, the former leader of the CCP, vowed to eradicate Falun Gong within three months, it is still going strong, and that people practice it in many places around the world. I then changed the subject and talked about the widespread corruption in China.
I could see his attitude change, so I asked him to read the materials that I had given him and use the software to break through the Internet blockade so that he could find out the truth about the CCP's history and the persecution of Falun Gong.
Lady Admires Practitioners
We came across four people in one village, and told them that we were Falun Gong practitioners. Just as I finished speaking, a lady said loudly that she admires Falun Gong and that its practitioners are great!
“For so many years,” she said, “Falun Gong has survived and its practitioners are helping people to learn the truth. It's amazing that they use their own money to produce informational materials.”
She had already quit the CCP, and thanks to her, the remaining three people in the group also decided to quit.
The owner of the next house did not believe what we said about Falun Gong or that we pay for the informational materials with our own money. I told him how the practice returned me to good health and how much money I had saved on medical bills.
I added, “If I don’t tell you about the goodness of Falun Gong, anyone who still chooses to associate themselves with the Party will suffer a great loss when it loses power. I am cultivating kindness. How can I be so selfish without letting you know the truth?”
He and his family decided to quit the CCP.
Visiting a Mountainous Area
We arrived at a mountain area. It was hard to see the houses as there were no streets and the whole area was covered in trees. However, we did manage to talk to people from 30 households and many of them quit the CCP.
In the last house there was a farmer who raised pigs. He told us that there were another six households on top of the mountain, but advised us against visiting them because they were the homes of the village CCP leaders.
It was very hot and humid and our clothes were soaked with sweat, but we knew that we must go there. While walking to those houses, we kept reciting:
“Great enlightened beings fear no hardshipTheir will is cast of diamondLife or death, they have no attachmentForthright and broad-minded on the road of Fa-rectification”(“Righteous Thought, Righteous Action” from Hong Yin, Volume II)
We left some fliers at the first two homes, as no one answered the door.
An elderly man was at the third house. We told him about the corruption in society and that heaven punishes those with decaying morals by increasing the number of natural disasters.
He listened attentively and decided to quit the CCP by submitting his real name. We gave him a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and some Falun Gong materials.
Over the past few years, we have visited all the villages and towns in our county. We don’t know how far we have walked and how many people have learned the facts about Falun Gong. But we are certain that we will not stop in our efforts to help people be saved.
