Young Practitioner: I am Glad to Tell People about Falun Gong

October 07, 2015 | By a young practitioner from Hebei Province, Mainland China

(Minghui.org) My name is Xiaohui Zhang. I am 12 years old and in 5th grade. I started practicing Falun Gong with my mother when I was young.

My academic performances in school have been very good because I practice Falun Gong. I always act according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and when faced with conflicts, I calmly try to resolve them. I also help others when they have difficulties.

My teacher once asked me to help him carry the homework of students. There were about 100 notebooks and they were very heavy for me to carry. When I could no longer carry them, a male classmate came over and took the notebooks from me. When I thanked him, he replied, “Don’t mention it. You always help others and I have only helped you once.” I was very moved by what he said.

When I got home that day, I told my mom that I wanted to help my classmates quit the Chinese Communist Party’s Youth League.

One time, my mother and I decided to walk home with my classmates in the rain. My mother took the opportunity to tell them about Falun Gong. My classmates asked if I also practiced. When she told them that I did, my classmates all agreed to quit the Youth League. One of my classmates said, “I trust her. Falun Gong must be good if she practices it.”

With Master’s help, many of the 97 classmates at my school have quit the Youth League. It is exactly like what Teacher said: “Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master.” (Zhuan Falun)

I am very happy that sentient beings know the facts about Falun Gong and the persecution!

Four Stories: How Falun Gong Is Truly Amazing

October 07, 2015

(Minghui.org) I am a female Falun Dafa practitioner in my 60s. On my way home one day, I saw many bystanders when I passed by the entrance of Anlu Government Building in Hubei Province on September 1, 2015.

After I went over to see what was happening, I saw an elderly man in his 70s leaning against a stone pole. Two police officers were holding his arms, but they seemed to be unsure of what they were supposed to do with him.

Though the elderly person had lost consciousness, he was still sweating. I went over to him and said loudly in his ear: “Only my Teacher can save you. Please recite ‘Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’” I then repeated it another five times. Suddenly he lifted up his hand to wipe the sweat from his face, and then he opened his eyes and did Heshi (palms together in front of his chest to show respect) to me.

Seeing this, the bystanders were greatly surprised. They asked the police officers what I said to him. The police had no clue. So they came to me and asked me. They thought I knew him; I said I did not.

I then began to tell them that I practiced Falun Dafa. “All I said to him was to ask him to recite ‘Falun Dafa is good!’” The bystanders all said, “Falun Gong is truly amazing!” Before I left, I asked the elderly person to remember what I told him when he was unconscious. Hearing that, he did a Heshi to me again.

I Escaped from the Tianjin Big Explosion

Seeing the scene of the large explosion in Tianjin, I felt extremely fortunate that I avoided this calamity. Under the buildings that were destroyed in Xinbin District, some of those interior walls were painted by contract workers form our region. I was one of them last year. But this year when I was going to paint the wall, strangely enough, my wife (a Falun Dafa practitioner) insisted on me not going to Tianjin at all. So I ended up going to Henan Province instead.

There was another time, on the highway to Tianjin, 14 of our contractors from Anlu City, Hubei Province were on the same bus. Suddenly the driver saw that it became foggy. He felt it wasn’t safe, so he decided to pull over by the highway. After that, we all got out of the bus.

Soon enough, the traffic started, so the road became clogged. Moreover, the fog caused a series of accidents. Some cars involved in the collision ignited. Some people saw that by the time the firefighters arrived, a married couple had burned to death.

It was because I always carry a Dafa amulet with me. I am also supportive of my wife practicing Dafa and talking to people about it. I hereby want to thank the Teacher of Falun Dafa for saving my life these two times. I also hope people of the world will not believe the lies put forward by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

A Person Who Survived the Tianjin Large Explosion

A girl who is a resident of Wuqing District in Tianjin, works in a factory. On August 12, when Tanggu City had the explosion, she was at the scene. The impact wave after the explosion carried her over 30 meters before she landed on the ground. After she got up, she had no clue what was going on. When she saw the scene around her, she was dumb-founded.

After she arrived home, she talked to her parents about it. When her dad went to the marketplace, as soon as he saw practitioners, he told them: “You guys brought my daughter good fortune. She was intact after the explosion.” Her family had learned the truth about Falun Gong long ago, and they often asked practitioners for more truth-clarification materials.

Falun Gong Is Truly Amazing

I am a practitioner from Anlu City, Hubei Province. My granddaughter went to work at Shenzhen City after she graduated from the university. When she came home, she told me about a miraculous thing that happened:

She took a bus to Shenzhen City, and there suddenly appeared five robbers with their faces covered on the bus. All of them carried knives in their hands. They threatened every single passenger with their knives, forcing them to hand over their money, which made my granddaughter very scared.

She remembered what I told her to do when she ran into danger, to recite, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” So she began to quietly recite this. The thieves passed right by her as if she were not on the bus. In the end, she was the only one on the bus whose personal belongings were intact. After she came home, she was shouting at me with excitement: “Grandma, Falun Gong is truly amazing!”

Minghui Publishes New Report – Court Cases Brought Against Falun Gong Practitioners in China (Jan-Jun 2015)

The report addresses court cases brought against Falun Gong practitioners that were reported on the Minghui website from January through June, 2015.

Overview of Report Findings

Those who practice Falun Gong in China are persecuted because they refuse to give up their beliefs and because they dare to speak out publicly against the oppression they face. Governments, NGOs and concerned citizens the world over have condemned the persecution, but it has continued for over sixteen years nevertheless.

From January through June 2015, Minghui published reports of 393 Falun Gong practitioners “tried” in Chinese courts. The vast majority of the court appearances were show trials with trumped up charges and guilty verdicts a foregone conclusion.

Of the 393, 110 Falun Gong practitioners were reportedly tortured in custody. At least 206 had their homes ransacked by police or Party officials. At least 98 endured forced labor.

Of the 393, the length of sentence was reported for 383 cases. Sentences ranged from 4 months to 9 years in length, with an average of 4.0 years. Most were sentenced to prison.

Gender was reported in 94% of cases, with women far outnumbering men (72% to 28%). The age was reported in 193 of the cases (roughly half), and ranged from 30 to 84, with an average age of 56.

China’s communist regime maintains a strict Internet blockade that aggressively filters out information about Falun Gong. Thus the true scope of the persecution is likely much greater than that evidenced by reports on Minghui.
