October 31, 2015 | By a Falun Gong practitioner in China
(Minghui.org) Despite the health benefits and improvements in mind and heart that millions experienced from practicing Falun Gong, Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party, launched a campaign to persecute the practice in July 1999.
To garner public support, a propaganda campaign was broadcast around-the-clock, and the “Tiananmen Square self-immolation” hoax was staged to further slander Falun Gong and deceive people worldwide.
Since May 2015, more than 180,000 Falun Gong practitioners and others have filed criminal complaints against Jiang with China’s Supreme Procuratorate. They are exercising their legal right to charge Jiang Zemin with crimes perpetrated over the 16-year persecution.
The following accounts are excerpted from criminal complaints provided by Falun Gong practitioners from Heilongjiang Province in China. It is our hope that, through these accounts, those who have been poisoned by the lies and propaganda generated by the Chinese regime will come to realize that Falun Gong is good.
1. From a Sick Person to the Backbone of My Family
I suffered from heart disease, kidney failure, and appendicitis before I started practicing Falun Gong. I was so ill that I could not even pick up a bottle of soy sauce. Being short of money, my husband always complained about my medical expenses. My husband’s attitude and the my poor health made me feel that life was meaningless. I would have ended my life if not for my two young children.
I was introduced to Falun Gong on January 18, 1998 when I was in the depths of despair. On the third day of practicing, I felt that Master (Mr. Li Hongzhi, Founder of Falun Gong) started to purify my body. I followed Master’s teachings to conduct myself by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
All my diseases disappeared within two years. I could now do household chores and earn money to help support the family. I have been delighted and happy ever since. Master Li gave me this second life.
My grandson also benefits from practicing Falun Gong. White patches of skin started appearing all over his face in September 2014 and none of the treatments that he tried worked. He then started to practice Falun Gong with me and his disease vanished one month later. He has been a practitioner since.
2. My Body Underwent Dramatic Changes in One Week
Before I started practicing Falun Gong in the spring of 1997, I suffered from eight diseases. After one week of practicing, I underwent fundamental changes physically and was cured. I then read the book Zhuan Falun. Its profound principles resolved questions that I had for many years. I came to understand the real meaning of life and the causes of illness. I also stopped smoking and drinking.
3. Bad Thoughts Removed
I was in very poor health. I suffered from severe rheumatism, a herniated lumbar disc, and bronchitis. I depended upon medication year-round. My health was so delicate that I had to wear a hat every day, rain or shine.
My health improved dramatically after I started practicing Falun Gong in January 1998. I became a new person. I became healthy. I stopped wearing the hat that had been with me for more than 20 years. My granddaughter also benefited from my practice. Her chronic coughing was cured after she recited “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Her grades also improved.
I became more considerate and unselfish. My bad thoughts about stealing went away. I have followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a better person. Master Li gave me a rebirth. My appreciation cannot be expressed in words.
4. Finally Able to Get Close to My Daughter
I used to have rheumatoid arthritis and would pass out anytime because of my epilepsy. I once had an epilepsy attack while cooking dinner. I fainted and kicked over the portable stove. The flames burned my leg and left a big scar, which I still have today.
I also had tuberculosis and could not be physically near my family. My neighbor gave me the book Zhuan Falun in 1996, saying that Falun Gong has healing power and would help me. I finished the book very quickly.
I came to know that a person, once he follows “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” can experience better health. I then started to practice the exercises and my diseases disappeared in ten days.
Merciful Master gave me a second life. I finally was able to get close to my daughter! I cannot express my gratitude in words.
5. Becoming a Simple, Genuine, and Healthy Person
My mother used to have epilepsy. I became extremely concerned when she would fall on the floor in convulsions in an attack. My mother was introduced to Falun Gong by a neighbor in 1996, and I started to practice it with her. I was six years old at that time.
After practicing Falun Gong, not only did my mother’s epilepsy disappear, my chronic stomach pain was also gone. Both of us have become healthy since.
One day in March 1996 as I hurried to my night class, I fell down the stairs from the third to the second floor. I was in pain and my ankle swelled up to the size of a grapefruit. I did not take the swelling seriously and limped to school the next day. The swelling got so bad that I had difficulty putting on my shoes. However, Falun Gong is really miraculous. The injury completely healed within three days.
Falun Gong also has uplifted my xinxing. Since I was a child, I have followed the principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” to become a good person. I get along well with people in school and at work. I have become a simple, genuine, and healthy person. I feel very happy and sleep peacefully at night.
6. I Can Now Sleep with My Mouth Closed
My husband’s health noticeably improved after practicing Falun Gong. Seeing his changes, I started to practice in the fall of 1997. I cannot read, so I could only listen to Master’s Fa lectures. The Fa principles are very simple and clear for me to understand.
Before I cultivated, I was very weak and had difficulty walking any distance. I suffered from severe allergies. I had to sleep with an open mouth, causing me to have dry mouth and throat pain in the morning.
Falun Gong is really miraculous. The allergies disappeared after a few days of practicing. I can now finally sleep with my mouth closed. My back and legs no longer hurt no matter how far I walk. Many thanks to Master for his merciful salvation.
