[PureInsight.org] (European Fahui 2007) My name is Dai and I am 49 years old. I come from Norway. It is 10 years since I started to cultivate Falun Dafa in 1997. Under Master's care and protection, I have gone forward step by step from not enlightening to gradually enlightening to firmly believing in Dafa.
On July 20th 1999, the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP for short) and Jiang Zemin's scoundrel gang began to crazily and rampantly persecute Falun Gong. I was illegally kidnapped by evil policemen and imprisoned for five years. I suffered many kinds of torture and persecution. My teeth were pried off, my eyes were shocked with electric batons by evil policemen and one of my eyes went blind. I have witnessed, during the eight years persecution, the brutality, the hooliganism and the evilness of the persecution. At the same time, I witnessed the miracles of Dafa, the greatness of Master and the magnificence of Dafa disciples.
In September 2005, my husband and I escaped capture by the CCP and arrived in Thailand. We became United Nations refugees. In January 2006 we were arranged by the United Nations to settle down in Norway. The reason why we came abroad is that we want to expose this wicked persecution happening in China to the world, and to stop this persecution. Therefore I went to United Nations Human Rights conferences and many countries in Europe and in North America to testify, to let more people know the truth. Furthermore, I use computers and telephones to call Mainland China to clarify the truth, to persuade people to do the "three withdrawals" and to save sentient beings. The followings are some of my experiences of making phone calls.
1. Calling Chinese people, suffocating the evil
Master said in "Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Chicago Conference": "Everything the Dafa disciples in other regions do revolves around the main body of Dafa in Mainland China, and is restraining the evil's persecution, lessening the pressure for the Dafa disciples in Mainland China, and helping the Dafa disciples in Mainland China to clarify the facts."
Coming out of the evil persecution in Mainland China, I can understand what Master wants me to do, and I also know what the mainland practitioners want me to do. Every day I check the Minghui website to find the phone numbers of the persecutors provided by practitioners. I call each and every one of the telephone numbers. When making phone calls to the dark dens of evil to negate the persecution, you often hear evil people's villainous tirades and any people hang up on you. When this happens, I persist in dialing them over and over again, never giving up.
I remember one time when calling the Sihui Prison in Guangdong province, I dialed 19 times continuously but the policemen on the other end refused to listen. On the 20th time, they finally listened to my phone call. I then broadcast to him an audio recording from the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong and another audio recording detailing cases of people receiving retribution for persecuting Falun Gong, I heard in the phone the police officers discussing: "Falun Gong is really capable, even making phone calls to us here." I could feel that this phone call was disintegrating the evils there, and then I dialed all the different extension numbers of the prison and the branch districts in the prison.
Afterwards, I changed a digit of the telephone numbers, expanding the scope of the phone call. These telephone numbers are inside areas of the prison or their family districts. In one of the calls, I reached a family member of a prison police officer. I clarified the truth to her, told her about the wonderfulness of practising Dafa and how the CCP staged the incident of self-immolation in Tiananmen Square and the murder cases to frame Falun Gong. I told her that it is a heavenly law that good is rewarded with good and evil with evil, and that many police who engaged in the persecution of Falun Gong have received retribution. In the end she said she would persuade her husband not to persecute Falun Gong.
In calling the dark dens of the evil, we must maintain righteous thoughts and a calm heart. I once read on the Minghui website about Falun Gong practitioner Song Ping in Shenzheng who suffered six and half years of prison persecution. In Guangdong Province Female Prison, I got to know her. One time her body was soaked in water and she was subjected to electric shock by several batons simultaneously. She bounced onto the wall then fell to the ground. There were electric shock wounds all over her body, but she still did not give up cultivation. Even the prisoners involved in the persecution said: "Song Ping is kind of good" and they admired her a lot.
When I read that she had been kidnapped again, I immediately picked up the phone and called the person in charge of the 610 Office in Shenzhen Xili Lake district. I solemnly said to him: "Do you know that it was reported by the overseas media you illegally kidnapped Dafa disciple Song Ping? The whole world knows that Falun Dafa is good and is aware of the persecution of Falun Gong." The 610 person on the other end of the line yelled: "Who are you?" I calmly answered: "I am her relative. Such a kind and good girl has been persecuted and imprisoned in jail for nearly seven years. She was just released from the prison and you kidnapped her to the brainwashing class to persecute her. You will receive retribution." I also told him about Huang Tao of the Political Security Department of the Futian District Public Security Bureau in Shenzhen City, who persecuted Falun Gong practitioners actively then died in 2005 at the age of forty, which the Public Security Bureau kept confidential. A great amount of retribution like that happened one by one in the public security, prosecutorial and judicial organs. He listened and listened and did not dare to speak.
Once I learned that one fellow practitioner was on hunger strike for over a month in a detention centre. I first sent righteous thoughts, then picked up the phone and dialed the number provided by the practitioners in China. The number was a dead phone number. I arbitrarily added one 1 to the number and dialed again. Then I was asked to dial the extension number in the phone. I randomly dialed 113 and the line got through. Someone picked up the phone. I asked him if it was the detention centre. He confirmed and said that it was the clinic of the detention centre. I asked him if the practitioner was detained there. He said yes. I started to clarify the truth to him and told him that the Tiananmen Square self-immolation was staged and fabricated by the CCP. I told him that Falun Dafa is practised in more than 80 countries around the world, and that it is a heavenly law that goodness and evil receive their dues. I also told him how some of the police persecuting Falun Gong over there already received retribution and persuaded him to treat Falun Gong practitioners well. In the end, he listened until the phone call was finished. I wrote down the valid number of this detention centre, and often I call there to clarify the truth to more policemen.
Once I read that one couple who are Falun Gong practitioners was kidnapped to a forced labour camp in Shandong Province. They have a 6 year old daughter who was left without care wandering on the streets. I dialed the phone directly to the home of the Municipal Party Committee Assistant Deputy Secretary of this city. He picked up the phone and I clarified the truth to him. After this Assistant Deputy Secretary was clear about the truth, he repeatedly stated his stand. He knew Falun Gong was persecuted and people who practise Falun Gong are all good people. He said that he would not participate in the persecution and said that they have already sent the child to her grandparent's home.
Making phone calls to clarify the truth is a process of cultivation. I keep on studying more Fa every day. It is guaranteed that I study two lectures every day. If I have more time, I will study three lectures to maintain a calm mind. In addition, we should be sure to send forth righteous thoughts more frequently every day to eliminate the evil interference. In this way phone calls can be made smoothly.
2. Encouraging the three withdrawals and saving sentient beings
Apart from making phone calls to the dark dens of the evil, I also call Mainland China to persuade people do the "three withdrawalsâ€?. To me making phone calls to persuade people to do the "three withdrawalsâ€? is not as familiar as making phone call to stop the persecution. Facing people from different classes in the society, it has a higher requirement for me. At the beginning I found it difficult and was afraid that I could not do it well. Later, it came to my mind that I should do what Master told us to do. After I developed this one thought, the first call I did made me feel it was miraculous. I arbitrarily dialed a telephone number. A 60 year old man from Hui Autonomous Region in Ningxia received the call. He was very excited and asked how I knew that he lived there. At that moment I felt that we were just like relatives who had been out of touch for many years. I was moved to tears and said "Grandpa, we have a predestined relationship." After a few words this man quit the CCP.
Every day I get up at around four o'clock. After finishing doing the exercises and sending righteous thoughts, I begin to call until we go to school at eight o'clock. On Saturdays and Sundays, I make more phone calls until 9 o'clock in the evening Mainland China time.
While making phone call to persuade people to do the withdrawals, I often encounter tirades from those who are brainwashed and poisoned deeply by the evil party. Once I called Sichuan province and a 22 year old man picked up the phone. As I clarified the truth to him, he cursed me with very bad words. At that moment I just sent righteous thoughts and maintained a heart of benevolence and a mind of kindness regardless of how he cursed. As long as he did not hang up the phone, I continued to tell him calmly that the CCP has killed 80 million Chinese people during its previous movements. I talked about the Communist Partyâ€™s corruption, stressed that the Tiananmen self-immolation was staged and told him that the entire world condemns the CCPâ€™s persecution of Falun Gong. He stopped cursing and finally asked for the phone number for quitting the CCP. He said he would quit and he would ask many other people to quit too.
Master said in "Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Chicago Conference": â€œThe way gods see it, saving sentient beings is absolutely not something done in a manner like in human society, where after someone makes some mistakes human means are used to correct him. Gods are merciful and have the greatest capacity to forgive, and they are truly responsible to beings, instead of focusing on a person's actions at a given time. That's because gods awaken a being at a fundamental level, and enliven a being's Buddha-nature at a fundamental level.â€?
Once I read that Dafa disciples were kidnapped to the police station in Guangxi. I called the police station and a policeman answered. I told him that the persecution of Dafa disciples he was taking part in had been exposed by the overseas media. He said that it was an order from above to do this, not his business. I told him about the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. Many Chinese people have been awakening and they spit and spurn the demonic cult party. The history of the CCP is a history of tyranny, killing and lies, from the Three Anti Campaign, the Five Anti Campaign, the Anti-Rightists Campaign, the Great Cultural Revolution, the Tiananmen Massacre in 1989 and the current persecution of Falun Gong. After each movement the Communist Party arrested the policemen as scapegoats and executed them. At the same time I told him that it is a heavenly law that Good will be rewarded with good, and evil with evil. I advised him not do evil things and not to participate in the persecution of Falun Gong. He listened quietly all the time, and then he asked me about Falun Gong overseas. I told him how Falun Gong has spread widely overseas and about the events of people quitting the party. He finally told me he was a party member and asked me to help him to quit. Another being has been saved after becoming clear about the truth.
One time I called Hubei Province and the call was received by a peasant writer. He had just been imprisoned for three months because he wrote about the CCP before it took over power. I clarified the truth to him. He was aware of the evil nature of the CCP and knew about the persecution of Falun Gong. He told me that his family is a big one. There were 25 of them who had joined the CCP, Youth league and Yong Pioneers. He said he would like to do the 3 withdrawals for them. I told him he should tell everyone about this issue as it counts only if they understand about quitting the party and actually want to quit. He said he would. I left him the hotline number for quitting the CCP. I asked him to help the predestined people around him to do the three withdrawals. He agreed happily.
Making phone call to persuade people to do the three withdrawals is a cultivation process. It is essential to study the Fa more every day and send righteous thoughts more. Only through constantly maintaining righteous thoughts can we make the telephone calls well. Only then can it get smoother as we make more calls. Only then the more we call, the more we want to call. I keep making phone calls every day and am never attached to the recipient's decision to quit the Party or not. The more I call the more smooth the phone calls will be and the more people quit. The more I call, the stronger my righteous thoughts are. When considering that these sentient beings are here for the Fa, my heart is filled with mercy and the other party will feel that I am trying to save him and it is good for him.
During the phone call, I use a notebook to record down which numbers need to be called again, which did the three withdrawals and which nickname they used when I helped them quit the CCP on the Epoch Times website. I also write down those numbers and keep them properly and carefully.
People become clearer and clearer. There are a lot of people in mainland China all waiting for us to save them, and Master arranged everything well and is just waiting us to do it.
In "Fa Teaching at the U.S. Capital 2007," Master told us: "Even though the gods who have descended to the Three Realms come from different levels, it was only upon having steadfast faith in Dafa and the Fa-rectification that each came to the human world. They wanted to come here to obtain the Fa and, along with this, give their aid to Dafa while it was spread. So with these beings, regardless of their levels, the steadfast righteous thoughts they had were extremely precious. The reason is, as seen from divine realms, mankind and human society are a truly terrifying sight to behold, and that was especially so in this case, since the gods were able to look at human beings during their worst time. They were brave enough to descend because of their steadfast faith in Dafa and their conviction that Fa-rectification would surely succeed. [They believed that] the Fa could definitely save them, that Dafa would definitely succeed, and that Fa-rectification would definitely succeed, and it was thus that they had the godly courage to come to the human world."
I know what I have done is far from enough and I will firmly remember the Fa taught by Master, hurry up to make phone calls to persuade people to do the "three withdrawals" and save more sentient beings.
