    Let's See Who Still Dares to Undermine the Fa!


    Recently we heard that some self-proclaimed Falun Gong practitioners are collecting signatures among Dafa practitioners in Sichuan and Yunnan Provinces, and other locations. They spouted lies, saying that they found "Master's Master, the true Falun Holy King," "Master's Master," "want to recruit 48,000 disciples," and other nonsense. Some practitioners even went as far as muddle-headedly signing their names.

    Before the Fa-rectification ends, there will always be rotten demons that seek to undermine the Fa and come out to carry out persecution. Only CCP special agents and puppets controlled by rotten demons will openly poison people's minds and do damage like this. To those practitioners who followed others in signing your names, have you thought about this: is there such a thing as a shortcut on the path of cultivation? For whom are you signing your names? Was it to let the evil arrest you according to the list of names?

    We hope that all of the practitioners who were involved in this Fa-undermining incident will immediately stop cooperating with the special agents' persecution, study the Fa with a calm mind, look deeply within, and do not follow the evil persecute Falun Dafa and Falun Dafa practitioners! We are hereby issuing this urgent notice.

    Facts of the Persecution

    Lawless Officials from Guan County, Shandong Province Arrest Many Falun Dafa Practitioners

    ( Recently, Diao Dechang of the Police Bureau of Luancheng City, was appointed director of the police bureau in Guan County, Shandong Province. He has declared publicly that he will eradicate Falun Gong. He said that the whole county would work together to "meet, visit, register, search, and arrest" Falun Dafa practitioners (especially those who had previously been arrested or sentenced) during the October 1 holiday. He required each town to handle two practitioners.

    On September 27, 2005, Wang Kejun, head of the police station in Fanzhai Town, Guan County, Shandong Province and Meng Jianxin, the town Party Secretary, led a group of people to ransack the house of Falun Dafa practitioner Fan Shuxin. They arrested him and sent him to a detention center.

    On September 27, 2005, Zhang Yudong, a Falun Dafa practitioner who had been released from a forced labor camp, had his home ransacked and was arrested again. He was detained in a detention center for further persecution. Zhang Yudong is from Lianzhaihou Village, Ganguantun Town, Guan County.

    The detention center has detained from two to thirty Falun Dafa practitioners. On October 4, 2005, after a group of practitioners were directly sent to a forced labor camp without trial, there were still four female practitioners and two or three male practitioners held in the detention center.

    Five Practitioners from Shengli Oilfield, Shandong Province Face Illegal Sentences

    ( This year unlawful officials in the Shengli Oilfield conducted a joint round of persecution with special support from the "Falun Gong Specialty Team," the 610 Office and the Communist Party. The "Falun Gong Specialty Team," an agency of Shandong Province, is now stationed at the Shengli Oilfield hotel.

    From the beginning of this year, a total of 31 practitioners, including Tang Zhanchen, Fu Deqing, and others, were arrested by police from Binhai Police Department, Huantai County Police Department in Zibo City, and the security division of Petroleum University. Of those 31 Dafa practitioners, Tang Zhanchen, Shen Xiaoyuan, Yang Chenghan, Yang Jian, Qiu Hongmei, He Boqing and An Yuzhi were sent to Wangcun Forced Labor Camp in Shandong Province. Yang Jianjun was in custody outside the labor camp and was later forced to become homeless after he was sentenced to forced labor but failed to pass the labor camp's required physical. Zhang Aiquan, Wang Mingyun, Yu Desheng, Zheng Ruihuan and Liu Yinglan now face labor camp sentences.

    Zhang Aiquan used to be a third class police superintendent in the Shengli Oilfield Binhai Police Department traffic team. In 2000 he was put transferred to a closely monitored work group at Dongxin Oil Extraction Plant, where his wife worked, and detained for one month because he gave Dafa materials to others. In July 2000, he was sent to Wangcun Forced Labor Camp for three years.

    Earlier this year, lawless officials started monitoring Zhang Aiquan's activities. On May 13, in the afternoon, they followed Zhang Aiquan to Yu Desheng's home. After Zhang picked up Dafa materials and left Yu's house the officials arrested him.

    Wang Mingyun, an employee of the monitoring group at Dongxin Oil Extraction Plant, was arrested in 2000 by detective Qu and his cronies, and detained at Shihua Hotel, located at the Survey Drilling Company of Shengli Oilfield. Ms. Wang was persecuted for one month at the time.

    Under pressure from higher up, Wang was dismissed from her job and became unemployed. When her husband Zhang Aiquan was arrested on May 13, the police also secretly arrested Wang Mingyun. The couple's home was searched by police who stole their computer, car and other belongings.

    Yu Desheng, an employee of the Material Company of Shengli Oilfield, appealed for Falun Gong, practiced Falun Gong outdoors, and distributed Falun Gong flyers after July 20, 1999, (when Jiang started the persecution). For this, he was illegally arrested and detained. In November 2000, he was sent to Wangcun for three years of forced labor.

    In 2004, Yu Desheng requested his wages that had been withheld from him during his forced labor term. As a result, Mr. Yu was arrested by Diao Kefu, the chief of the Materials Company, and other lawless officials. Mr. Yu was detained inside the Materials Company, in a place that had been privately set up by the perpetrators for illegal detentions. Later, he was sent to a brainwashing center by the Shengli Oilfield "610 Office." On May 20 of this year, officials arrested Yu Desheng again, searched his home and took away his belongings, including his computer, Nine Commentaries booklets and other things.

    Zhang Aiquan, Wang Mingyun and Yu Desheng were recently transferred from the County Police Department to Huantai County Detention Center. They were each brutally tortured there. When Zhang Aiquan's clothes were sent out of the center there was blood all over them. Officials also brutally beat Yu Desheng; this was seen by a witness. At the time of the arrest, Yu Desheng was beaten by the perpetrators and witnesses saw that there was blood all over his clothes. Their families are not allowed to visit them. Now, Zibo City officials are in the process of sentencing the three Dafa practitioners.

    Zheng Ruihuan and Liu Yinglan are retirees from Jidong Oilfield at Tangshan City, Hebei Province, and are senior engineers. Under frequent threats, in 2002, they were forced to leave their home at Jidong Oilfield and came to Shengli Oilfield.

    On July 8, 2005, at lunchtime, police from Zibo City National Security Department and from the Binhai Police Department in the Shengli Oil Field, went to their house and arrested them. They also confiscated their computers, books and other belongings. Right now, Zheng Ruihuan and Liu Yinglan are being detained at the Binhai Police Department in Dongying, Shandong Province. The law-violating police are planning to impose a secret trial and sentence them.

    Six-Year Persecution of Practitioner Ms. Zhang Jingyu From Hubei Province

    ( Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhang Jingyu was an employee of the Salt Factory for the Shuanghuan Chemical Industry Corporation in Yingcheng City, Hubei Province. Her physical and mental conditions improved greatly after she started practicing Falun Gong, and all of her illnesses disappeared. She worked hard and was a good mother and wife.

    After the persecution of Falun Gong started on July 20, 1999, Ms. Zhang persisted in being a good person according to "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance," and for that she was severely tortured.

    Around 4:00 p.m. on July 9, 2000, He Zhongping, the Xinji Police Department head for Yingcheng City (also known as the Shuanghuan Police Department), as well as Wang Yuanyu, secretary of the Salt Factory CCP Committee for the Shuanghuan Science Corporation, Ltd., and several others abducted Ms. Zhang from her work unit and detained her for 15 days.

    The following year on November 11, 2001, at 8:00 p.m. officers Wang Yuanyu and Liu Qiang from the Xinji Police Department abducted Ms. Zhang Jingyu from home. They took her to the Shuanghuan Hotel and handcuffed her to a window on the first floor. Whenever she turned around, numbing pains shot through her body. They kept hitting Ms. Zhang's face, head, hands and other parts of her body with metal hangers until she bled from her mouth and her hands had turned purple. They kept her handcuffed for four hours. Her hands were severely swollen when she was finally released. At noon the next day they sent Ms. Zhang to the No. 2 Detention Center in Yingcheng City, where they held her for another 15 days. He Zhongping extorted 2,000 yuan as a "deposit" before her family was allowed to take her home. The money has never been returned.

    The following year on April 11, 2002, at 8:00 a.m. He Zhongping and others from the Xinji Police Department again abducted Ms. Zhang from her place of employment and again held her, this time for 28 days at the Wuhan Brainwashing Center without going through any due process.

    At 10:00 a.m. on July 24, 2002, CCP committee secretary Wang Yuanyu called the police. Officers abducted Ms. Zhang and sent her to the No. 2 Detention Center in Yingcheng City, where she was held for five days. They withheld Ms. Zhang Jingyu's year-end bonus of 720 yuan.

    Around 2:00 p.m. on November 9, 2002, perpetrators, including Zhang Sanping from the Xinji Police Department, abducted Ms. Zhang from work once more and held her at the Duangang Brainwashing Center in Yingcheng City for two weeks. Ms. Zhang held a protest hunger strike. Her systolic blood pressure shot up to 140 and her pulse was 120. Six perpetrators pinned her to a workstation and inserted a tube through her nose into her stomach and force-fed her soymilk. Her mouth foamed and her tormentors were frightened.

    The next year, on February 18, 2003, personnel from the Xinji Police Department abducted Ms. Zhang from work yet again and held her at the Wuhan Brainwashing Center for 30 days. She held another hunger strike to protest. On the fourth day they put her in a chair, tied her arms to the armrests, and tied her upper body to the backrest. Five people held her head, hands, and legs. They pried her mouth wide open with medical equipment and used a spoon to press her throat in order to dump the food down it.

    Between July 2003 and July 2004, authorities from the Salt Factory lowered her salary from 900 to 600 yuan, although her workload remained the same. Later they raised it to 700 yuan.

    On July 23, 2004, Ms. Zhang was reported when clarifying the truth in Mahe Town, Hanchuan City, Hubei Province. Local police abducted her and sentenced to one year of forced labor.

    At the Hanchuan No. 2 Detention Center, Ms. Zhang held a hunger strike to protest the persecution. Against her will, the police ordered IV infusions for her, possibly with concentrated saline solutions. She became exceedingly thirsty after the infusion was finished. They force-fed her every other day. Each time, five people pinned her to the floor and inserted a tube through her nose down into her stomach. On the seventh day they transferred her to the No. 1 Detention Center. Ms. Zhang could hardly walk, and she inched into her cell while holding onto the wall. The next day, several hired young men who were not formal employees of the detention center force-fed her. They dragged her out to the lawn by the front gate and tried to insert the feeding tube, but they couldn't manage it. They slapped her with such brute force that her face turned red. Eventually they were able to insert the tube. They force-fed her the same way in the following days. The tube scarred her throat and caused great pain. The detention center authorities saw that she was at the brink of death and were afraid of being held responsibile, so they sent her and another practitioner to the Shayang Forced Labor Camp in Hubei Province to further persecute them.

    The authorities at the Shayang Forced Labor Camp assigned two inmates to monitor each Falun Gong practitioner, including the practitioner's words and actions. The practitioners are required to "report" before they enter a room, or they must stand in a military posture for a long time, even after they return to their dorm. Ms. Zhang held a hunger strike for 11 days. She was quite weak and had back pain. Despite her condition, they still forced her to stand in a military posture. She could not endure the back pain and tried to sit down. One inmate immediately stepped on her feet and another one yanked her up by her hand. She was wearing sandals, and both her hand and foot bled from the rough treatment. The two inmates would yank her around whenever she tried to sit down. Sometimes they jerked her collar and scratched her until the skin on her chest broke open. They grabbed her hair and banged her head against a wall and kicked her, all the while cursing the founder of Falun Dafa. They forced her to stand up 24 hours a day as long as she refused to give up her belief.

    After September 2004, Ms. Zhang got up at 5:00 a.m. to do the cleaning and take a shower. The inmates watched her as she went out to do slave labor. She was not given any noon break and had to work right after she finished eating lunch. When other detainees went to sleep, the inmates monitored her taking a shower and then brainwashed her until past 11:30 p.m., sometimes past 2 a.m. She still had to get up at 5:00 a.m. the next day.

    On December 26, 2004, Ms. Zhang and several other practitioners were transferred from the Shayang Forced Labor Camp to the Hubei Province Women's Forced Labor Camp in Wuhan City, where other methods were used to persecute practitioners.

    Beginning March 18, 2005, Ms. Zhang went to sleep at 2:00 a.m. and got up at 6:00 a.m. each day until late June, when she was allowed to go to sleep at midnight, although others were allowed to go to sleep at 9:30 p.m. The inmates did not allow her to talk, and they forced her to stand and sit the same way all day long. They followed her everywhere and didn't allow her to speak with anyone. Her weight dropped from 150 pounds to less than 110 pounds.

    Her company canceled her labor contract after she returned from Wuhan City.

    Exposing the Evil Deeds of Police Officers in Qinhuangdao City, Qinglong County, Hebei Province

    ( Since the persecution began on July 20, 1999, thousands of Falun Gong practitioners have been arrested in Qinlong County, Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province. The police department in Qinglong County exhausts a lot of manpower and resources to spy on and persecute practitioners, arresting them, searching their homes, extorting money from them, and incarcerating them in detention centers, labor camps and jails.

    Methods of torture:

    1. Forced to Lie on Ice

    It is very cold in the winter in Qinglong County. In the yard of the county prison, several hundred practitioners have been forced to lie on their stomachs on the ice without clothes. The ice melts under their bodies, forming watery pockets in the surface of the ice. The water in the pockets is about an inch deep. The bodies freeze and turn blue. This torture has gone on for five winters. If there is no snow, they pour water in a shady place to make a patch of four-inch-thick ice and force practitioners to lie on it.

    2. Wearing heavy shackles on the hands and feet

    The police department ordered 100 more sets of handcuffs and shackles once the persecution began. The extra heavy foot shackles (over 20 pounds) are reserved for practitioners. Practitioners' hands and feet are sometimes locked together, so they cannot stand up. Even in this painful position, the policemen still force them to walk in the yard.

    3. Squatting

    Policemen force practitioners to squat for long periods of time, which is a very painful punishment. If practitioners cannot keep the position, they are whipped.

    4. Lashing

    Policemen often force practitioners to take off all their clothes, except for their underwear. Then they order the criminal inmates to lash practitioners until they pass out. Practitioners are shackled again when they regain consciousness.

    5. Cruel force-feeding

    To protest the persecution, some women practitioners started a hunger strike. The policemen ordered the doctors to force-feed them. Prison doctor Wang Jingfu inserted tubes into practitioners' noses, mouths, or rectums, to humiliate them while torturing them. This cruel force-feeding is the method he often uses to torture practitioners.

    There are also countless other tortures.

    Exposing the policemen who have persecuted Falun Gong practitioners

    Many practitioners have been arrested and jailed in the detention center. Their sentences were indefinite, and they would not be released unless their family paid a "fine." To rescue them, some practitioners' family members had to borrow money. The policemen pocketed a lot of money from these illegal fines.

    The deputy chief of the county police department, Zhang Xi claimed in public several times: "There is no law protecting Falun Gong practitioners. It is not a problem to beat Falun Gong practitioners to death. We will bury them if they die." He also said, "If Falun Gong practitioners are beaten to death, then it will be counted as suicide. And the testimony from other Falun Gong practitioners won't count." "The law doesn't apply to Falun Gong practitioners. This is the order from a higher level of government." "Nobody cares about the appeals for Falun Gong. I will give you time to appeal, if you think you are capable." Zhang Xi has ordered the officers to torture practitioners many times.

    He not only ordered policemen and criminal inmates to beat practitioners with instruments of torture, but he also beat them himself. He beat practitioners with anything handy. Once he beat a practitioner with a shovel. He beat him so hard that the handle of the shovel broke. The practitioner was badly wounded, and blood soaked his shirt. Since he was dying, Zhang Xi stopped and ordered someone to take the practitioner to the hospital. (The pictures taken by the hospital are evidence.)

    The chief of the detention center, Wang Jin, has tortured more than a thousand practitioners. He often beats, curses, and tortures practitioners by various means. Even the policemen in the detention center cannot bear to watch the brutal torture he applies to Falun Gong practitioners. He often curses while he is beating practitioners and repeats the orders from Zhang Xi (mentioned above).

    Police officer Liu Lijun not only beats practitioners but also humiliates them for amusement. He forces them to jump like rabbit or move like turtle, and if one refuses, he will beat him. He forces practitioners to fan him when he lies on the couch. He forces practitioners to carry him on a chair when he goes to bathroom. Whenever he is in a foul mood, he tortures or curses practitioners.

    Prison doctor Wang Jingfu often uses the worst torture methods on practitioners. He doesn't care about practitioners' lives and violently force-feeds them, resulting in broken teeth and badly injured throats. He invented the "force-feeding through the rectum" torture to insult practitioners. Once,when he was unable to insert the tube into a female practitioner's nose or mouth, he told five male criminals to insert the tube into her rectum.

    Cases of persecution against practitioners from Qinglong County

    Ms. Wang Sufen from Mutoucheng Town was stripped of her pants by policemen and beaten with a leather whip, plastic pipes and police batons for more than 30 minutes. The police, headed by deputy chief Zhang Xi, did not stop beating her until she passed out.

    Ms. Du Yinqin, in her 50s, is from Shahe Village, Badaohe Town. Six policemen beat her to the ground and she was writhing in pain. While they were beating her, Zhang Xi asked, "Are you still going to say 'Dafa is good'? We will keep beating you if you still say it." They did not stop until she passed out. They handcuffed her hands and feet together after she woke up. Ms. Du has been arrested and tortured many times. Once she was beaten so badly that pieces of her flesh stuck to the whip.

    Ms. Li Guishu, from Tumenzi Town, was forced to sit in a big water pit in the heavy rain for an entire day. They did not even allow her to change into dry clothes afterwards.

    Mr. Hu, from Wangchang Village, Badaohe Town, was taken to a women's jail cell by Wang Jin. Wang Jin took off Mr. Hu's pants and lashed him, which made his buttocks swollen and bruised.

    Ms. Wang Lixin, in her 30s, is from Badaohe Village, Badaohe Town. She was illegally arrested and detained. Zhang Xi and Wang Jin cursed her and forced her to squat for one hour. They whipped her when she was unable keep the position.

    Mr. Zhang Qingshu, in his 30s, is from Dingzhangzi Village, Louzhangzi Town. He was arrested several times. Zhang Xi and Wang Jin put him in handcuffs, which seriously damaged one of his wrists. The scar on his wrist is still visible. They mocked him, saying, "You said that your Master is good. Why doesn't he come to rescue you then?" Later that day, the handcuffs suddenly opened on their own. The policemen were shocked. They found that the spring in the handcuffs was gone. They had to replace them with another pair. Due to the illegal arrest of Zhang Qingshu, his five-year-old and 11-year-old children and two 70-year-old parents were left with no one to take care of or provide for them.

    Ms. Zhang, 40 years old, is from Nianzigou Town. Wang Jin ordered policemen to take off her pants and beat her against a chair until her flesh was broken. When she put on her pants after the beating, her pants were soaked with blood and her skin and underwear were stuck together. There was also an egg-sized bump on her head.

    Wang Jin whipped Ms. Liu Yuxia and other 17 practitioners. Wang Jin forced them to lie on their stomachs on the ice for 30 minutes. Afterwards they were confined to a cold room for three days, without any food or water. They were only allowed to wear thin clothes, and their bodies were covered with frostbite wounds.

    Feng Guirong and Feng Guiling are sisters. On one of the coldest days of winter, they were hung from an iron pole in the yard for 45 minutes. The policemen could not bear the cold even while wearing heavy coats, but the practitioners were only wearing thin clothes. Their hands were swollen and numb from freezing. After they were taken down, they were handcuffed. Feng Guiling's hands were covered with festering frostbite wounds. The largest wound was the size of an egg.

    At least four Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured to death in Qinglong County detention center

    Mr. Hu Hexiang, 60 years old, was from Badaohe Town. He had been jailed many times and tortured many times. Once he went on a hunger strike for five days to protest his illegal arrest. Tubes were in his nose and his hands were handcuffed behind his back, so he had to sleep on his side. He needed help to turn over in bed and when going to the bathroom. The last time he was in jail, the policemen fed him slow poison that doesn't kill people instantly, but gradually, so that when people die after being released, the police do not have to bear any responsibility. After Mr. Hu was released, he died on January 28, 2002. His family members tried to appeal many times, but they were accused of lying. The police are afraid that his family will sue again, so they are trying everything possible to stop them. The problem is still unresolved.

    Mr. Song Youchun and his wife and daughter from Tumenzi Town were arrested from home for no reason. They were jailed in the detention center and tortured. After a few days, his wife and daughter were released. Policemen told them that Mr. Song would not be released unless they paid a fine, but they were too poor to pay it. Fourteen days later, on December 15, 2003, Mr. Song was tortured to death in the detention center. Fellow practitioners and his family tried to sue the policemen, but they were only given 40 thousand yuan as compensation.

    Qinglong County Police Department fabricated evidence to frame a Falun Gong practitioner and sentence him

    Mr. Liu Huimin, 30 year old, is from Xiaoyingzi town, Qinglong County. He was in the military in Zhangjiakou City. The leaders in the army tried to convince him to renounce Falun Gong, but after he clarified the truth, the leaders changed their attitude, and appreciated his high level character. They didn't dare to keep him in the army, so they arranged a job for him in a hotel in Qinglong County, where he was appreciated by his supervisors and co-workers.

    He wrote to the county government and police department, clarifying the truth to them and asking them to stop persecuting Falun Gong. He was accused of going against Jiang Zemin. He lost his job and was jailed in a small cell in a detention center. Two months later, they had a trial. In the court, Mr. Liu answered all of the questions righteously. But the county fabricated "evidence" and submitted it to the higher-level court in Shijiazhuang City. Mr. Liu was then sentenced to four years in prison. It has been two years. His wife Pan Suyun, also a practitioner, has never heard anything from her husband. She asked the local police station to give her permission to visit him, but instead the police beat her badly, which made her face swollen. They also arrested Liu Huimin's brother, Liu Huizhong, and jailed them both in the detention center. Such a happy family was destroyed, and three children were left home alone.

    Before 2001, 819 practitioners were forced to undergo brainwashing by the county police department. Three practitioners have been forced to become homeless to avoid persecution. The police have taken in 734 thousand yuan in illegal fines, for most of which, they didn't issue a receipt. The crimes that policemen in Qinglong County have committed against Falun Gong practitioners cannot be described with words.

    Practitioner Mentally Disabled Due to Persecution in the Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp

    ( Ms. Sun Shujie, a Falun Gong practitioner from Shuangyashan City, Heilongjiang Province was sentenced to forced labor again in 2002. Because of the violence from torture and from brainwashing, she is now mentally disabled. In spite of her condition, the policemen still forced her to work. They also kept verbally abusing and slandering her, making her mental state much worse. Once, when she was doing chores in the workshop, she picked up scissors, trying to slash her own throat. The following is her story:

    Ms. Sun Shujie, 49 years old, a section head in Shuangyashan City, Heilongjiang Province, has twice been held in a forced labor camp. The first time she was suffered forced brainwashing and was in very bad health when they finally released her. Shortly after that she underwent gynecological surgery and had her womb removed. In May 2002, before she had recovered from the surgery, she was arrested again and sent to Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp.

    This time, Ms. Sun began to protest in the labor camp. She refused to cooperate with all the abuse and persecution such as brainwashing, squatting in a square, and listening to broadcasts that slandered Dafa. Because of her protest, the camp guard, Liu Yadong handcuffed her beside the bed days and nights, forcing her to sit on the cold floor for about five days. Because her surgery incision had not yet completely healed, she suffered so much pain that she could barely stand it.

    The police brainwashed her violently. She suffered much additional torture and mistreatment, such as being hung up with her hands cuffed behind her back and being strictly monitored by inmates. In the meantime her husband divorced her. The horrifying camp environment, the torture and the verbal abuse affected her to the point that she collapsed mentally. The camp policemen and the doctors were fully aware of her situation but they did not want to do anything to help. They even insulted her viciously, saying that she was pretending.

    Guard Hong Wei ordered Liu Shihua, a 50-year-old prisoner, to follow and monitor Ms. Sun all the time. One morning when Ms. Sun left the camp meeting room a policeman noticed this and captured her. After a round of violent beating, the policeman brought her back to the eighth team. Then guard Hong Wei beat her violently one more time.

    Liu Shihua's prison term would have expired shortly after that, but because she failed to watch Sun closely enough, guard Hong Wei added one month to her prison term. Thus Liu Shihua could not go back home before the Chinese New Year.

    After that, guard Hong Wei and another person named Jiang Jianan ordered two prisoners to monitor Ms. Sun and to force her to work. Although she had become a mental patient, Jiang Jianan and Hong Wei still kept verbally abusing and insulting her. It made her mental state even worse. Once, while doing chores in the workshop she took a pair of scissors and tried to stab herself in the throat. Fortunately, practitioners Song Huilan and Li Shumei detected her action. They stopped her immediately and prevented her from committing suicide. After learning what had happened to Ms. Sun, Hong Wei and some other prisoners hung her up outside and beat her violently. Then they kept her handcuffed all the time. In the summer of 2004, Ms. Sun's mental state was so serious that the labor camp had no alternative but to let her go home.

    Practitioner Dismissed from Yunnan University without Cause

    ( My name is Qin Fei, and I was born in December 1970. I worked after graduating high school in 1988. In 1994, I attended the Adult Education Institute in Yunnan University (located in Kunming City, Yunnan Province) after passing the entrance examinations. I graduated in October 1998 with a Bachelor degree in Legal Science.

    I began working toward a Master's degree in Legal Science in 2002 as a part-time graduate student at Yunnan University.

    On September 28, 2005, because I practice Falun Dafa, I received a Decision (Yunnan University Graduate School Document #8, 2005) to dismiss me from the Yunnan University. The document was sent by my teacher in the Legal Science Institute.

    I am a self-paid part time graduate student. In order to finish my degree, I have accumulated a large debt. I have paid 24 thousand yuan in the past three years, and remain a good student by perfect attendance, studying hard, and respecting my school and my teachers. I finished my thesis draft on time and independently.

    I am not aware of any rules or regulations that would lead to my dismissal. According to General University Student Management Regulations, article 56, 58 and 61, I appealed my case to Yunnan University. Please take back such an unreasonable decision, so that I can finish my studies.

    The People Awaken to the Truth

    CCP Officials Withdraw from the Party


    CCP Provincial Level Officials Withdraw from the Party

    According to reliable sources, some Chinese Communist Party (CCP) provincial level officials recently discussed withdrawing from the Party. Five of them openly applied to withdraw, and three of these five officials formally withdrew and even went through "educating work." Two of these three are officials working for the CCP Provincial Disciplinary and Inspection Committee. Many CCP members are using the excuse of temporarily disassociating from the CCP, which means they do not join CCP activities, do not pay membership fees, etc.

    One CCP official said frankly after reading the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, "My whole family are Party members, and we are thinking seriously about withdrawing from the CCP."

    Former 610 Office Head Withdraws from the CCP

    One 610 Office head in Jilin Province has been actively participating in the persecution of Falun Gong since July 20, 1999, when the persecution began. He personally approved the arrests, sending to labor camps, or imprisoning of more than thirty Falun Dafa practitioners. He destroyed several hundred families by directing detentions, home ransackings, abductions, extortions, and brainwashing of Falun Dafa practitioners.

    After he retired, he lost money in whatever businesses he tried to run, and nothing went smoothly. A fortune teller told him that he did many bad deeds in the past years. He realized the truth of the persecution, read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, and came to understand the heavenly principle of "Good will be rewarded with the good, and evil will meet with retributions." He knows how evil the CCP is, and deeply regrets his actions. He has declared his withdrawal from the CCP.

    Young but Clear-minded

    On August 3, 2005, my son told me after school, "Mom, my Politics Class teacher said that our country's enemies are corrupt persons, terrorists, and persons who want to overthrow the government."

    "Many of my classmates shouted as soon as my teacher finished, "Teacher, our country's enemy is none other than the CCP itself. Many corrupt CCP officials can be seen everywhere." Two classmates who have a sense of justice said, "We saw the self-immolation, but only on TV. The Falun Gong people that live beside us are not like that at all."

    Learning the Truth after Reading Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party

    One family member of an official who works in Linghe District Forced Labor Camp in Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province read Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. She said to a Falun Dafa practitioner, "I have to tell my husband not to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners, and to try not being involved and avoid being in charge. My family believes in 'Good is rewarded with good, evil will be met with retribution.'"

    Across China, People at the Grassroots Level Are Awakening


    1. "Township Will Do All It Can to Protect Falun Dafa Practitioners"

    A high school teacher in a township in suburban Tianjin is a Falun Dafa practitioner and has clarified the truth in class. Parents of a student reported this to the authorities. The secretary of the township's political and judiciary committee, who has become aware of the facts about Falun Gong, told the practitioner, "We in the township will definitely not report to higher authorities. The township will do all it can to protect Falun Dafa practitioners."

    2. Party Sub-Committee Ceases to Exist Except in Name

    Members of a village party sub-committee in Tianjin have come to know the greatness of Falun Dafa after relentless truth-clarifying efforts from practitioners. After seeing through the evil nature of the Communist Party, everyone except for the Party secretary has quit the Party. Whenever they have heard new plans of persecution, they would send alerts to practitioners immediately.

    3. Physician Persuades Patients to Practice Falun Gong

    A village official accompanied a friend of his to a large hospital in Tianjin for diagnosis. It turned out that his friend suffered muscular atrophy. The physician told the patient, "There's nothing we can do. Go practice Falun Gong." After returning back, the village official told everybody he met, "Even physicians know the benefits of Falun Dafa. Practitioners are not only healthy, they are all good people. As peasants, we cannot afford to see doctors. We'd better practice Falun Gong."

    Canberra, Australia: Falun Gong Practitioners Read Falun Dafa Association Announcement at Chinese Embassy (Photos)

    (, October 20, 2005) At noon on October 18, 2005, Falun Gong practitioners read the Falun Dafa Association Announcement in both Chinese and English in front of the Chinese Embassy. The announcement was published on October 9 and stated, "From today on, overseas Falun Gong practitioners will file civil or criminal lawsuits against all important government or CCP officials who participate in or continue to implement the persecution of Falun Gong and as a result, commit new crimes in addition to those they have already perpetrated against Falun Gong."

    ¸ß¾«¶ÈͼƬ ¸ß¾«¶ÈͼƬ

    The reading of the announcement caught the attention of many tourists from China and Australia. When practitioners explained the facts to them, they nodded, "We know. We know."


    Practitioners pressed the doorbell to hand over the announcement but receive no response

    After reading the announcement, two practitioners pressed the doorbell to try to hand over the announcement to the Chinese Ambassador, but got no response. The practitioners wanted the staff in the embassy to know that Chinese Communist Party will definitely collapse and that those committing crimes against Falun Gong will be brought to justice in the future.

    Canada: Clarifying the Truth in Montreal's Chinatown (Photos)

    ( On October 15 and 16, 2005 Falun Dafa practitioners in Montreal, Canada organized activities in Chinatown to promote the upcoming "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" International Art Exhibition.

    The activities comprised five sections, including a group of practitioners demonstrating the exercises, practitioners reenacting the torture of Falun Gong practitioners under persecution in China, a team of children singing songs, a team of practitioners passing out Falun Dafa bookmarks, paper lotus flowers and clarifying the truth, and a team of practitioners passing out invitations to the "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" Art Exhibition.

    The peaceful and serene exercise demonstration attracted many passersby and the torture reenactment exposed the inhuman treatment of Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted in China. The cruel and bloody tortures and the serene and peaceful exercises stood out in sharp contrast to each other.

    ¸ß¾«¶ÈͼƬ ¸ß¾«¶ÈͼƬ

    Passersby observe the anti-torture exhibition

    The organizer of the event said that during the over six-year-long persecution of Falun Gong in China, more than 3,000 practitioners have been persecuted to death and more are still held in prisons. Their children have lost the care of their parents and some of them were driven out onto the streets. Falun Gong practitioners outside of China are making every effort to rescue these orphans to free countries overseas.

    The Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong not only involved about 100 million Falun Gong practitioners, but it has also involved about 10 million Chinese children. In the persecution, many children have been expelled from school, driven out of their homes, discriminated against, jailed together with their parents, and some have even been killed in the persecution. Many orphans have only lived with their parents for a short time, and most of them don't have any support from society. Some of them even don't yet know that their parents were murdered.

    Tina, a girl in the children's chorus, said, "I still can't imagine their real situation. But I think that life without their parents can be very hard."

    Ms. Hu was one of those passing out invitations to the International Art Exhibition. She said, "This is the invitation to the 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance' Art Exhibition. We invite everyone to attend the exhibit. It runs from October 25 to November 12 and is free to public. There will be about 40 artworks from Falun Gong practitioner artists. This is one stop on the exhibition's world tour."

    The organizer told this reporter, "What we are doing today, including the exercise demonstration, anti-torture exhibition, art show and the children's song, is to let more people learn the truth about Falun Gong and to let more people benefit from Falun Dafa. People are kind and supportive. We feel happy for them."

    Taiwan: Promoting Falun Dafa at National Chung Cheng University (Photos)

    ( On October 4 and 5 2005, Taiwan National Chung Cheng University held a student associations' event for the associations to recruit new members. The Falun Dafa club actively participated in the event and aimed to let more freshmen know about Falun Dafa, which is practiced in over 70 countries.

    After the student associations event, in order to let new students learn more about the rich content of Falun Gong, the Falun Dafa club held an introductory seminar on October 6. For the seminar, they invited professors and students from Chiayi University, Nanhua University, and Chung Cheng University to share their experiences and changes after practicing Falun Dafa. The practitioners from Nanhua University also performed Dafa music and let the audience experience the solemnity and serenity of Falun Dafa.

    ntroducing Falun Dafa to new students
    Students from Chung Cheng University share their experiences

    That night, some new students who had not practiced Falun Dafa before attended the seminar. From the video program introducing Falun Dafa, they obtained a better understanding. Next, several veteran practitioners shared their experiences. Almost every one of them mentioned the big changes they experienced both physically and mentally after practicing Falun Dafa, and their stories were very moving.

    A practitioner from Nanhua University said that when his family heard he was going to practice Falun Dafa, they got worried that it would interfere with his studies, because there was one relative who entered religious cultivation and abandoned the family. So his parents thought all cultivation involved abandoning parents and family. He explained to his parents that Falun Dafa belongs to the Buddha School and it is cultivated in the normal society. The founder, Master Li Hongzhi, told us that we must do our jobs well in all situations. Being a student, he must study hard. After a few years of practicing, he has used his own improvement to convince his parents that cultivating Falun Dafa will not interfere with study; on the contrary, Dafa helped him a lot in school.

    Students talked about two key points in Dafa cultivation. One is to search within and not outwardly, and the second is to eliminate human attachments during cultivation. One student shared that during Fa-study, he found the reason why he hated studying. He used to search for reasons outwardly, and ascribe it to the social environment and pressure from his parents. He was studying for fame and wealth in society and studying for the sake of his parents' feelings. He felt that if he didn't study hard, his parents' feeling would be hurt. After realizing this attachment, he understood that as a Falun Dafa practitioner, he should cultivate openly and in a dignified fashion. As a student, studying well is his duty and a basic requirement of a cultivator. Before, he cared a lot about grades. Now, he no longer pays a lot of attention to it because he understands that he must be responsible for himself by studying well. The important thing is to improve one's understandings during the process but not be attached to the outcome.

    Another student said that she benefited a lot after practicing Falun Dafa and learned that practitioners are persecuted in Mainland China. In order to help more people understand the beauty of Dafa and learn the truth of the persecution in China, she wanted to join the Fa-promotion and truth-clarification activities. At first, when her parents heard about the activities, they worried and asked how she would handle her studies. Now, when they hear about her activities, they ask if she needs some support or a donation. The change came after the parents saw her improvement in study, and their coming to understand that all Dafa activities are open and righteous and benefits others. Her major is social welfare. In her fieldwork, she saw that when other religious organizations participate in social work, they receive transportation fees and meal compensation. But in Falun Dafa, there is no such compensation. All practitioners do the work voluntarily and use their own money. She saw other students in restaurants and hair salons, but she used her money for Fa-promotion, including mailing truth-clarifying materials, making phone calls and printing flyers. She believes these are the important things.

    The last part of the seminar was a Question and Answer session. The discussion was very interesting and the seminar ended successfully.

    Kansas, U.S.A.: Falun Gong Practitioners Take Part in Maple Leaf Festival Parade (Photos)

    The Falun Gong practitioners' float, as well as the peaceful and harmonious music and exercise demonstration, attract an attentive audience

    On the morning of October 15, 2005, a festival parade marked the prelude to this year's Maple Leaf Festival in Baldwin. The slight chill of the early morning did not affect people's enthusiasm for watching the parade. People and their families gathered on both sides of the streets of downtown, watching the procession of over 100 groups.

    The Falun Gong practitioners' float slowly moved through the parade accompanied by the harmonious and refreshing music of "Pu Du" and "Ji Shi." The Falun Gong float brought splendor to the parade and immediately attracted the attention of many spectators. The music, the exercise demonstration, and the spirit of harmony and serenity touched every person who attentively watched. The practitioners sincerely wish for all kind-hearted people to keep in mind, "Falun Dafa and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance!"

    Practitioners Exchange Insights and Experiences

    We Must Have a Firm Basis for Cultivation

    ( Some time ago I went to visit a practitioner with whom I was once acquainted. He had seemed relatively good at making progress in cultivating. However, after the persecution of Falun Gong began on July 20, 1999, he quit practicing and even seemed unable to understand Dafa; his viewpoint and understanding of Dafa had gone astray. Upon talking to him, I found that his initial problem concerning the basis of cultivation had not been solved from the beginning. He has been stubbornly adhering to his own opinion of Teacher and Dafa. I have vividly and clearly felt the stubbornness of those lives in the old universe. They have been holding on to their ideas and opinions that they don't want to give up and that they still use to view Dafa. Teacher said,

    "In dealing with relevant, important matters, if a life can really assess things without any preconceived notions, then this person is truly able to take charge of himself. This clearheadedness is wisdom, and it is different from what average people call "intelligence." ("For Whom do You Exist?" in Falun Dafa Essentials for Further Advancement)

    The old universe is in the process of disintegration. As a life inside the universe, whether one can assimilate to Dafa without any of his own opinions will be the key for him to enter the new universe.

    After carefully studying Teacher's Fa-lectures, I have understood that the whole universe has deviated from the original characteristics of the universe a long time ago, and there has been degeneration in sentient beings' many ideas and mentalities. Having descended level by level, they experienced many reincarnations in this human world. Finally, there has been the long-term brainwashing by immersion in the Communist Party culture. As a Dafa practitioner, if one does not start practicing from a sound basis, or has not rationally rectified his own basis in his or her cultivation practice, it would be very hard for him to make it through this unusual tribulation and withstand the suffering that has occurred. Only when one really melts into the Fa and assimilates the self with the Fa, can one really rectify various postnatal mentalities, including those impure factors based on selfishness and self-centered ideas that have accompanied us since our life was created. Only then can we really become a particle within the Fa. Also, only through such a process can one gradually see through his own various postnatal mentalities, to really witness from the bottom of his heart the incomparable purity and greatness of Dafa. This is the unending process of true cultivation practice. Only by following Teacher and Dafa closely, witnessing the process of one's true cultivation practice step by step, can one break through various tribulations and degenerated mentalities layer by layer, and truly reach the special, wonderful situation of Dafa practitioners.

    On the other hand, if after a long time one fails to rectify the basis of his cultivation practice, one will not be able to melt into the Fa since the Fa will not reveal its principles to those practitioners with impure motivations. Therefore, one would have been unable to truly understand the Fa and will hesitate to move forward when facing various postnatal mentalities and attachments and will be puzzled by various degenerated mentalities. Teacher said,

    "The Fa can break all attachments, the Fa can destroy all evil, the Fa can shatter all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts." ("Drive Out Interference" in Essentials for Further Advancement II)

    If one has not really understood what the Fa is, from the heart, he will certainly waver in the face of this big tribulation, be puzzled and drift away from Dafa in the end. The before-mentioned fellow practitioner drifted off further and further from Dafa simply because he didn't want to give up his own mentalities and never rectified his basis for cultivation, which blocked him from really understanding the Fa.

    It was before 1999, as I remember, that there was a young practitioner who had started studying the Fa earlier than many others. After studying the Fa for quite a long period of time, he once suddenly asked, after finishing group Fa study, "What is the Fa? What on earth is the Fa?" I was very surprised. How could one ask such a question after studying the Fa for such a long time? I also remember another relatively old practitioner. Not long after he started studying the Fa, I heard him exclaiming in surprise, "It turns out that the universe does have Fa!" Later I realized that everybody, especially the beginners, understand the Fa quite differently from others. The key to studying the Fa is whether one really understands the Fa at heart, and is not dependent on the superficial forms, the length of Fa-study time every day, or the length of time one has practiced. I have been cultivating with all my supernormal abilities locked. Before, I felt baffled by the phenomenon that some practitioners who had their celestial eye opened very early and, in the course of their practicing had seen many special wonderful scenes in other dimensions, nonetheless quit practicing when facing the big tribulation, and some even turned to the negative side. How could these people quit practicing after seeing such wonderful scenes? How could they not be firm?

    Upon passing through this big tribulation and seeing both positive and negative examples of practitioners' behavior, I have realized more soberly the importance of the basis of cultivation practice and the seriousness of cultivation. Without a solid foundation based on a right understanding of the Fa in one's heart, one could easily lose his righteous belief in the Fa when facing the old forces' destructive tests. When one has lost his righteous belief, his xinxing will drop down, and consequently his cultivation level will also drop down. His xinxing level and state of his heart, including the feeling of a light body after his benti [physical body in this and other dimensions] were changed, would also disappear and he would feel nothing. Maybe, even his memory of those wonderful situations experienced in the practice environment would disappear, as well as those supernormal abilities and wonderful scenes seen in other dimensions. Everything would become faraway and dimly discernable. Only firmness in the Fa, formed from deeply understanding the Fa principles in one's heart, is what is truly indestructible and solid as a rock in the face of various tests. After being able to really understand the Fa, one can realize the incomparable greatness and the might of the Fa. As long as one can assimilate to the Fa he will be a particle of the Fa and will be able to demonstrate the unlimited power of the Fa. This is really the most crucial thing.

    This is my understanding at my present level. I hope fellow practitioners will point out any improper understandings.

    Some Understandings about How to Get Rid of the Attachment of Fear

    ( In Zhuan Falun, Master has mentioned a Fa principle regarding a person whose cultivation had reached the level of Arhat but dropped down due to his attachment of fear. In articles written during the Fa rectification period, Master has repeatedly mentioned the importance of getting rid of the attachment of fear. However, we cannot immediately eliminate this attachment just by wanting it to. If we have not understood its true nature and have not gotten rid of the material existence of fear, the attachment constantly strengthens our pursuit of comfort, wears down our will and makes us slacken in our doing the three things during this Fa rectification period.

    During the past several years of evil persecution, I have personally experienced the cruelty of the persecution several times. Twice I was deceived and taken to brainwashing centers; three times detained in detention centers; and twice abducted and sent to Shayang Forced Labor Camp.

    In these inhumane places, I have endured all kind of brutal tortures. Every day I heard and saw the beatings, cursing, threats and deprivation of sleep for a long time. Under such extreme mental pressure, the interference I encountered was derived from my own attachment of fear. Even at that time I understood that the fear was not me. When I tried to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the fear I always felt that I was not powerful enough and my righteous thoughts wavered. Therefore, my sending forth the righteous thoughts did not achieve a good result. I felt upset and worried about the situation.

    Let me illustrate with a simple example. When I was illegally arrested, the police came in their vehicles. I became very nervous whenever I saw a police vehicle later on. Once, shortly after I left my house with truth-clarification materials in my hands, I saw three police vehicles parked at a crossing not far away. I became very scared and my heart immediately started to palpitate irregularly. So I quickly turned back. My heartbeat did not return to normal for a very long time. Later I kept searching within myself to find why my first thought, after my seeing a police vehicle, was that the vehicle was there to arrest practitioners.

    One time I was studying Master's "Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Midwest-U.S. Fa Conference." lecture. In this lecture, Master said,

    "They say that this material dimension is filthy, but, this dimension's filthiness is caused by the differences among the levels of the cosmos's structure. That doesn't truly count as being filthy. So when a God comes here and can't go back, it's not because that filth can't be washed off, but because the realm of his being has been lowered. It's because of the influence of various different concepts and different beings in the cosmos that they can't go back. So what's really polluting me, creating trouble for me, bringing the Fa-rectification trouble, and persecuting Dafa disciples is actually not those filthy elements here but is the cosmos's beings' warped concepts manipulating those elements. Those low-level elements are resistance that the old forces specifically produced, and they have brought about those cases of persecution and different forms of trouble. That's the real pollution."

    I suddenly enlightened to what constitutes the material existence of fear. It is, in fact, the very thought; that is, what had scared me was the thought that police vehicle was used to arrest practitioners. It was not me. When I was able to view it rationally and recognize it, this substance of fear immediately disappeared completely. The unparalleled relaxation I experienced in my whole body and the happiness that arose from deep in my heart was beyond description. I had truly understood

    "With attachments left behind, the lightened boats sail swiftly."

    (Master's article of "The Knowing Heart")

    I had genuinely experienced such a marvelous state of Dafa cultivation! Ever since then, I have no longer had the feeling of fear whenever I see a police vehicle. Through this incident, I came to understand that for any interference we have encountered, only by seeing through the evil nature of the interference, can we not be controlled by the evil spirits. Only then can we eliminate the evil spirit quickly and completely.

    Let me talk about the issue from a different perspective.

    Master told us in his new article "A Will That Ebbs Not (September, 2005),"

    "Unbridled are the wicked,

    yet you keep your bearings

    Purging evil as if but whisking dust away"

    From this Fa, I came to understand that we really should not assume that the evil beings are powerful. The evil are in fact, nothing. Once a fellow practitioner told me that the evil would abduct the Dafa practitioners to brainwashing centers and asked me to stay away for several days. Hearing this news, I sent forth righteous thoughts trying to eliminate the interference, but my heart was so disturbed that I could not calm down. So in a flurry, I took several clothes and ran out of my home. Recently, I heard similar news, but I was very calm this time, because through reading the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, I have understood the true nature of the party.

    The communist evil specter has constantly resorted to the means of terror, so as to make people develop a psychological state of fear over a very long time in a terrifying environment. Furthermore, the evil specter also constantly strengthens this substance that makes people fear. In fact, it is not that one is afraid of it. Instead, it is the psychological fear formed in one's mind that, in turn, takes control of this person and makes this person fear. After I understand this issue, I know that when the evil again engages in terrorist activity, they are trying to strengthen people's fear. Just as the Nine Commentaries has said about it, the goal of the communist evil specter's killing people is not to kill many people, but to make all people fear the party.

    Master said,

    "In the eyes of everyday people, animals are so formidable that they can easily manipulate people. Actually, I say that they are not formidable and are nothing before a true practitioner. Though you may find one that has practiced cultivation for nearly one thousand years, a tiny finger will be more than enough to crush it."

    ("Spirit or Animal Possession" in Lecture Three of Zhuan Falun)

    We are Dafa practitioners during the Fa rectification time. A tiny finger of a Dafa practitioner will be more than enough to crush the communist evil specter. So how could I still be controlled by the psychological fear that the evil specter has bred in my mind through its activities of terror. After realizing this point, I was soon able to calm myself and send forth the righteous thoughts, to negate the old cosmic forces' arrangements and eliminate all the evil factors of the vicious party and communist evil specter.

    These are some of my understandings during the process of getting rid of my attachment of fear. I hope it can help practitioners who still have the attachment of fear, so we can cultivate together diligently! Please point out anything that is improper.

    Clarifying the Truth at a University Meeting

    ( I am a student attending military university. I am now a senior at the university. At the beginning of this school year, during the freshman military training period, a junior from the Student Association invited me to represent the seniors in a joint meeting between the seniors, juniors and freshmen. I declined at first, thinking the event was being held for the younger students, and that I am now a senior. But I changed my mind after realizing that I could use this opportunity to clarify the truth, and happily accepted the invitation.

    At 6 p.m. that evening, the time and location of the meeting were still undecided. I realized that this was interference so I sent forth righteous thoughts. Ten minutes later, someone informed me of the meeting time and location.

    When I learned that I was scheduled to be the last speaker, I knew that this was Master's arrangement that there would not be a time limit on my speech, allowing me to say more. When it was my turn, I started my speech with an introduction to our university. Since we practitioners speak the truth and we think of matters with righteous thoughts, the first several minutes of my speech stimulated great interest from the over 90 students in the audience and they listened quietly to me.

    The second part of my speech was about how to be a good person. I spoke about trying to be sincere, kind and tolerant. Then I elaborated on my points. They felt that my view was fresh and they listened attentively. At last, I spoke about matters that college students should pay attention to. In this way the truth about Falun Dafa was naturally brought up. I shared about the practice being defamed and persecuted, and the current situation of Falun Dafa being widely spread around the world. I also told them the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance." Since I had talked about being sincere, kind and tolerant as a human being at the beginning of my speech, when I shared about Falun Dafa teaching people to follow the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance," they naturally accepted it. My speech lasted over an hour with much applause throughout. Many students asked for my cell phone number.

    After the meeting, many people surrounded me to ask questions. Afterwards, a lot of them sent me short messages and asked me to meet with them individually. I was very happy. As we were in an academic environment, we could not go into too much detail. It will be better to speak with them individually about topics that are of interest to them.

    Overcoming Attachment and Taking Part in the Fa Rectification


    It has been more than two years since I started practicing Falun Gong seriously. Soon after I first learned about Falun Gong, I did not really practice the exercises or read the books much, and I was not willing to participate in Falun Gong activities. I did not even know about sending forth righteous thoughts. Fellow practitioners had been encouraging me to take part in various activities, including group Fa study and experience sharing, but I made excuses and avoided them. I was not able to get rid of my ordinary person's mentality until I faced a serious test.

    The tribulation I encountered caused me intense physical and mental pain. My body was in constant agony, and I had chaotic and demonic thoughts. Often I felt as if I had no consciousness at all, as if helplessly floating in another dimension. The feeling of my body being torn apart sent me into depression. Even though I kept Master Li's teachings in mind, in particular - keeping a clear main consciousness, that Falun is rotating continuously and the Buddha Law is boundless - the old forces kept using my attachments to their advantage and interfered with me because I was not firm in cultivating Dafa.

    One day in a dream, Master gave me hints. I was made to understand that because I was not firm in my belief in Dafa, in an instant the evil was able to be very big, and I, very small. This deficient thought resulted in my persecution by the evil in other dimensions. I also saw that Master Li was enduring huge suffering for Dafa practitioners while I was avoiding this fact and afraid to face my own responsibility. At that moment, even though I felt helpless in my mind, I had one thought that I could not let Master keep suffering for me. I understood that I must be clear minded and firmly believe in Dafa, believe in Master. When my thought was corrected, a miraculous serenity arose in my mind - it was a peaceful and benevolent state of mind, without any hatred, fear or anger.

    I knew that Master was benevolently helping me. I wanted to firmly follow Master Li and not avoid my attachments anymore. When this thought emerged in my mind, I suddenly felt that the separation between "human" and "god" is very slight. Again in a dream, Master Li smiled at me and then disappeared. I also experienced a very big change. I saw that my body grew bigger and bigger while the evil spirits shrunk smaller and smaller. At last, as soon as I waved my hand, the evil spirit was eliminated. When the attachment is removed, the difficulties and evil are rendered trivial.

    After I woke up, with deep sincerity, I told Master Li in my mind that I had understood his benevolent and awakening message. Several days later, my suffering also vanished.

    From then on I actively took part in truth clarification efforts. I distributed Dafa materials, went to the immigration office to tell the truth to people from Mainland China, took part in media work, and, together with other practitioners, formed a platform to clarify the truth to merchants, social organizations and associations with ties to China.

    Validating Dafa with Each of My Deeds in Daily Life

    One time I went to visit one of my most difficult customers. I had dealt with this customer for more than two years, and experienced many difficulties with him. Because the customer did not have a good impression of me, he used to create troubles intentionally or unintentionally for me. Sometimes he would provide a lame argument and deliberately make my work more difficult. One time he made me run back and forth four to five times in vain verifying account records and delaying my other work.

    I had decided that this time I would have a serious argument with him. But when I thought of the Dafa principles in the book - that every practitioner's karma is arranged to test one's xinxing in various environments - and that when it's difficult to endure, a practitioner can endure it - and when it's impossible to do, a practitioner can do it - I controlled myself quite well.

    Some time later, I went to visit him again. He created troubles for me again as usual. But this time I had a chat with him. I told him that I practice Falun Gong and explained the truth to him. His facial expression showed anxiety and suspicion. I asked him why he was anxious. He then told me that a couple living next door to his sister's home also practice Falun Gong. He told me they were arrested when they went to visit their relatives in China. From this knowledge he had a negative impression about Falun Gong.

    I explained the truth to him in depth. He asked me if my good temperament was related to practicing Falun Gong. I answered, "yes." In practicing Falun Gong, as long as one keeps reading the books and cultivating one's mind nature, every one will become very kind.

    Clarifying the Truth to a Merchant from China

    One time when I was talking about the facts to a merchant from China, he was unwilling to listen. I became somewhat frustrated. I looked inside for my shortcomings, and finally I came to understand the reason. Because I was too anxious and did not pay attention to the ability of ordinary people to understand, I was telling him the truth at too high a level for him to comprehend. I then calmed my mind and talked to him again. I told him how I felt that Dafa was helping me. Then when I talked about the "big leap forward" mentioned in the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, he started showing interest. We talked further and he positively affirmed that the Nine Commentaries are telling the truth. Seeing that he had such a big change I was deeply touched. Clarifying the truth really is the key to open all the locks.

    182 People Declare that their Words and Deeds Under Forced Brainwashing are Null and Void
    A Total of 294749 Declarations Have Been Published To Date

    ( A "solemn declaration" is a person's public statement declaring to the world that whatever he or she has done or said under duress or deception that was against Falun Dafa is null and void. Most of these statements have come from Falun Dafa practitioners in China who wished to express regret that, in the face of physical torture and brainwashing, they had signed documents renouncing Dafa and guaranteeing not to practice again. Also, as more and more people in China learn the truth about how they have been deceived and lied to by the Jiang regime, many non-practitioners are also submitting "solemn declarations."

    Here are some examples of the Solemn Declarations:

    Scientific Findings

    Scientists Puzzled: Why does the Universe Accelerate in its Expansion?


    The latest issue of Science magazine pointed out in its News Focus section that cosmologists are puzzled over how to explore the mysterious dark energy, which causes the acceleration of the expansion of the universe.

    Ever since 1929, cosmologists have discovered that the universe has been expanding, which has led to the Big Bang theory - the origin of everything in the universe. Although experts have not been able, nor have they been anxious to explain the cause of the Big Bang, they have assumed that because of the pull of gravity, the expansion of the universe should have slowed down after it has cooled off. However in 1998, researchers inadvertently discovered while trying to measure the distance of from a supernova to the earth, that the distance was further than they had expected. This discovery, which sent shock waves across the astronomy community, prompted scientists to propose the theory that the expansion of the universe is accelerating. This theory was later validated in the research of background radiation of cosmos microwaves. Scientists remain puzzled about what factors have caused the universe to expand. They could only call this force "dark energy."

    It has been reported that scientists are stuck in the measurement of dark energy. They believe that observation of more remote stars with more powerful telescopes might be of help. NASA and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) are expected to launch a $600 million space telescope designed to measure dark energy under a program named Joint Dark Energy Mission (JDEM). Still, one of the leaders of the JDEM program, Charles Bennett, an Astrophysicist from Johns Hopkins University, was full of doubt himself. "We don't know what dark energy is, and there are different ways to measure it and different aspects to measure. There are unknowns in all directions." Some cosmologists have questioned this program itself. They thought that land-based telescopes could provide more useful data. They have submitted several feasibility reports to NASA and the DOE.

    Scientists, currently, only expect to use these telescopes to measure "the relationship of the distance of light has traveled and redshift" to determine if the density of dark energy remains constant. The term "redshift" comes from the understanding that as space expands, light traveling through it stretches to longer and redder wavelengths. Light's wavelength increases more quickly if space is stretching faster. "Redshift" is the accumulation of these stretches. However, scientists have not reached consensus over objects to measure, such as supernovae or entire galaxies, which in turn, has affected the decision on using space telescopes or land-based telescopes.

    Facing these questions, Charles Bennett, based on the spirit of exploration, said, "You shouldn't look at a space mission as an improvement over what you know today. You should look at it as an improvement over what you'll know tomorrow."

    Above are the thoughts of some scientists. In the cultivation community, a different approach to the explanation of the universe is taken. There, it is held that to truly understand the mysteries of the universe and time-space, one has to genuinely practice true cultivation.
