Li Dayong participates Falun Gong activity on the 20th, Oct, 2013
On the 2nd of March, Falun Gong core member Li Dayong died of acute hepatic necrosis. Li Hongzhi ordered to block the news and Falun Gong media had no report about the death.
Li Dayong was buried hastily in New York. Li Hongzhi did not send people to make arrangements for the funeral and even did not make a phone call. The funeral was desolating and deserted.
During the dharma assembly in New York on the 13th of May, one disciple challenged Li Hongzhi face to face, 'Li Dayong kept practicing Falun Gong but died eventually, what do you think of it?' Li Hongzhi answered ruthlessly that 'aren't you coming for seeking protection? Can it be called practice?' 'There was a devil in his heart' and 'He died because of heavy karma'.
Li Dayong and his wife Liu Mingming were all addicted to Falun Gong. They believed in Li Hongzhi and thought practicing could 'achieve consummation and become immortal'. Li Dayong showed the symptoms of liver disease but refused to see doctor. Instead, he kept reciting script written by Li Hongzhi, 'sending righteous thoughts' and using other ways to 'eliminate karma', which led to deterioration of the disease and died in 2 months.
Li Hongzhi said, 'many disciples have seen how I treat people, I do not even use my hands, people will be cured when I just take a look at them' and 'I am saving people all around the world'. For Li Hongzhi, saving people's lives is like lifting a finger, however, when Li Dayong was sick, Li Hongzhi never lend a hand to him.
Accordingly, Li Dayong was Li Hongzhi's most important partner assisting him to fabricate the big lie of '168 million people resigning from the Communist Party', as well as contributing a lot for Falun Gong's development in the US. Li Dayong couple spent all their money to support Falun Gong, even contributed their money to by the house. So far, Li Mingming lives in a small rental room, cries and regrets every single day.
