Protesting Peaceful and Clarifying Truth in Front of Chinese Consulate in Toronto, Canada

[] Since July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has carried out a frenzied persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and used lies to poison the minds of people all over the world. The persecution is still going on today. Being a Dafa practitioner, I have the mighty mission to save the sentient beings who are being poisoned by the evil party.

Teacher says,

"Surpassing time and space, Fa-rectification dashes forward
Massive is the challenge, but your will is firm
Unbridled are the wicked, yet you keep your bearings
Purging evil as if but whisking dust away"
(From "A Will That Ebbs Not")

Since last year, my mother and I have joined fellow practitioners twice a week in front of the Chinese Consulate to carry out peaceful protests. We perform the exercises, study the Fa, send righteous thoughts, and distribute truth-clarifying pamphlets.

We steadily send righteous thoughts in front of the Chinese Consulate to eradicate all evil that damages Dafa, and disintegrate all of the dark minions and rotten demons.

Teacher says,

"I have asked disciples to send forth righteous thoughts, because those so-called evil beings are in fact nothing. Yet because the old forces have taken advantage of Dafa disciples' mercy, the evil beings that are protected by the old forces have been deliberately persecuting, so what Dafa disciples are enduring is no longer just their own karma, but something they should not endure under the evil beings' persecution. Yet these evil beings are extremely base and filthy, and are not worthy of playing any role in the Fa-rectification. In order to lessen the persecution of Dafa and Dafa disciples, I have asked disciples to send forth righteous thoughts to clear away the damage these beings deliberately do to the Fa-rectification, thereby lessening what Dafa disciples should not endure during the persecution and, at the same time, saving all sentient beings and consummating Dafa disciples' paradises." (From "The Effect of Righteous Thoughts" in Essentials for Further Advancement II.)

One Sunday in October of 2005, the evildoers deliberately parked a car in front of the consulate, just a few meters away from our posters to prevent people from seeing our posters. The evil people from the car went in and out of the consulate. But they didn't turn off the car engines. The engine noise was very loud, and it went on for more than ten minutes. At the time, several of us were meditating and we realized that we need to send righteous thoughts right away. As we sent righteous thoughts, I could hear the noise level from the car had greatly decrease and the sound was less relentless. As we faced the evil, our hearts remained unaffected. We thought of using the opportunity to show the people in the cars our Falun Gong exercises. We thus started from the first exercise. I could sense people in the car were watching us. At this time, I heard a sound of a car door slamming shut and the car left. I knew the evil was worried. They didn't want people inside the car to know more about Falun Gong.

The Chinese Consulates are the gathering places for the evil beings from other dimensions. We all know that the place in front of the consulate is particularly gloomy and cold, especially in winter. One day in the fall of 2005 before winter arrived, I forgot to bring my gloves. When we were doing the second set of exercise and my hands were in holding the wheel position, I felt my hand going numb from the cold wind. At that moment, it felt like the marrow inside my bones was being frozen. I thought to myself. "I am a Dafa disciple and I am validating the Fa in front of the consulate."

Teacher says,

"Physical pains count little as suffering,
Indeed, cultivating mind is hardest.
Each and every barrier must be broken through,
And everywhere does evil lurk."
(From "Tempering the Will" in Hong Yin.)

I told myself I wasn't afraid of the freezing cold. I couldn't! With that thought, suddenly both my hands felt like they were in a warm place. It was an extremely comforting feeling. I knew that it was the miracle of Dafa and Teacher's compassion. I finished all five sets of exercises in the severe cold without stopping.

Our posters were written both in Chinese and English to give people clear messages: "Stop killing Falun Gong practitioners in China," "Falun Dafa promotes Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance," and "2800 Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted to death." When we were carrying out our peaceful protest in front of the consulate, we often heard westerner passers-by greet us, "Good morning!" Once, when I was doing the third set of exercises, an elderly gentleman in his 50s or 60s passed by us with vigorous strides. He said to us sincerely and pleasantly, "God bless you!" I could feel people were awakening and more and more people have begun to understand the truth. One day, a westerner stopped his car to inquire about the details of our protest. At the time I was sitting across the street from the consulate doing the meditation. I pointed to the posters and explained to him, "I am a Falun Gong practitioner. Falun Gong cultivates both mind and body and it has spread all over the world. But because of personal jealousy, Chinese president Jiang started a frenzied persecution of Falun Gong. The persecution is still going on in China. We are here to carry out a peaceful protest and demand that the Chinese Communist Party stop the persecution." As he listened attentively, he said sincerely, "I truly wish this persecution would end soon." Then he drove away.

Once, a westerner walked from his a small building adjacent to the consulate. He asked me why we were gathering in front of the consulate. I knew people living in the building had some contact with the consulate staff and their mannerisms hadn't been too polite when they talked to fellow practitioners in the past. I thought to myself that regardless of his intention, I'd seize the opportunity to save sentient beings with righteous thoughts and righteous action. I thus told him serenely the purpose of Falun Gong practitioners being there. He nodded his head as he was listening and seemed to agree with me. I then gave him a flyer about an upcoming fundraising activity to rescue the orphans of Falun Gong practitioners. I asked him to participate in the charitable event. He accepted the flyer and read it. Before he got into his car, he told me he would seriously consider participating in it.

While we were in front of the consulate, we tirelessly used the time to study the Fa. Sharing of the Fa between fellow practitioners had helped me a great deal.

Teacher says,

"In fact, making progress in one's own cultivation is a part of the process of saving beings. Saving beings, improving yourself, and resisting the persecution are all acts that validate the Fa; only walking straight your path amounts to validating the Fa." (From "Walk Straight Your Path")

While holding protest in front of the Chinese consulate, I have actively participated in a number of Falun Gong press conferences and other Dafa activities. As the immense force of Teacher's Fa-rectification rapidly expands, it is inevitable that heaven will destroy the CCP.

Teacher says,

"The Red Tide fades as ordained, its time now past
Signs of decline make ever so visible the wicked Party's evil
Shameless are the acts, done for power
Greedy officials courting danger
Minds devoid of good thoughts
More high-handedness breeds only more resentment
Who'd want to still persecute?
The day of reckoning draws near"
(From "The Red Tide's Wane")
