"Don't Miss Your Chance, Don't Leave Regrets" - Clarifying the Truth on Buses
(Clearwisdom.net) Seeing people around me deceived by rumors, I should take responsibility for sentient beings and help them to no longer miss the chance that they've been awaiting for millions of years, so as not to suffer any eternal regrets.
When I clarified the truth on the buses, at the beginning I would only silently leave several copies of truth-clarifying materials. Even when I spoke, I only talked to a few people near my seat to clarify the truth. I intentionally lowered my voice and regarded this method as being safe. Through deeply studying the Fa, I enlightened that all the people on the bus should have the predestined relationship to hear about the Buddha Fa. The next time when I clarified the truth on the bus, I first sent forth righteous thoughts for a few minutes and eliminated negative elements in all the dimensions. After getting permission from the bus driver, I asked the driver to play a truth-clarifying cassette. The World Falun Dafa Radio Station program with the background music of "Pudu" [Falun Dafa music] was played. Instantly, there were no comments or noises. I could even hear them breathing - everyone was so quiet. I kept sending forth righteous thoughts, stood up and walked towards them. Looking at them with sincerity, I handed each one the truth-clarifying literature. They also smiled to me and gently said, "Thanks," taking the materials in their hands and reading them. Through clarifying the truth on the bus this time, I truly felt that with righteous thoughts, Dafa practitioners are controlling everything.
Once when I got on the bus in the middle of the route, the bus was already full of passengers. It seemed that they were all complaining and their eyes were full of intolerance, as if with one more passenger like me, the bus became too crowded for them. I smiled to everyone, "Could you please be tolerant of the crowd, I've brought to you the best thing in the world." Then I started to hand out the truth-clarifying materials. When I came to a young man, he turned his head the other way and refused, "I'm not going to read it." His face remained stern. I calmly looked at him and said, "This is the most crucial material that you will ever have a chance to read. If you don't, you'll regret it for your whole life. This is about the truth of Falun Dafa. Who in this world wishes to be deceived? 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance' is what each life should follow." He again turned his head to the other side to avoid eye contact with me. I searched internally to see if I had not done something well, whether I was too anxious to hand out the materials or if my righteous thoughts were not strong enough. Seeing passengers who just accepted the truth-clarifying materials get off the bus at the stop, I realized something. I should leave him alone and continue to clarify the truth and not be affected by just one person.
Several elderly passengers got on the bus. I went to support them with my hand, gave them my seat, spoke to clarify the truth, and handed out the leaflets, being extremely busy. An elderly man came to the younger man, and the young man also stood up and left his seat for the senior gentleman. He then came over to me. At this time the ticket man on the bus said, "Falun Gong practitioners are all good people." This young man smiled to me and started to talk, "You are quite similar to the Falun Gong practitioner in my factory, very determined. It was not that I didn't want to read your materials; it was because I've read a lot. The practitioner in my factory is a man over 70, and he is quite healthy." He was saying that Dafa is good, and I realized that my firm righteous thoughts and patience through my cultivation of Dafa had rectified his manifestation of indifference. It didn't affect my clarifying the truth, but on the contrary, it formed a good karmic relationship.
On another occasion, I was sending forth righteous thoughts and handing out the truth-clarifying materials to the passengers on the bus. Then a person who had accepted a truth-clarifying CD shouted at me, "What are you doing? How dare you hand them out here, stop! I'll take you to the police station. I don't believe in this, I believe in Jesus." The driver also shouted, "Nobody is allowed to hand these things out on my bus, in the future no one would dare to take my bus!" The passengers were frightened, and no one accepted the CDs. I looked directly at them while in my mind I sent out Falun to cover the area and not to allow the old forces to interfere. Who dared to test me? I would clarify the truth well and would not be deluded by the false manifestations arranged by the old forces.
I said loudly, "Dafa practitioners treat everyone with compassion. We met today because we have predestined relationships, and it should be a good relationship. My Teacher taught me to follow the principle of 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance,' and what was given to you is good fortune. It is beneficial for you to remember 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance,' then you will have a bright future. Now Falun Gong has been widely spread around the world, and has come into the hearts of millions of kind-hearted people. Knowing about the truth is good fortune. This gentleman here, you said you believe in Jesus, genuine belief is to love everyone, let alone people who practice 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance.' And Mr. Driver, this 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance' is for everyone. It's a predestined relationship to be on your bus. Nobody likes people who are insincere, unkind or intolerant. You will gain boundless benefits for treating cultivators with kindness." No one continued to say any more words defaming Dafa; instead they stood up and accepted the materials one after another, and smiled silently.
In this way I clarified the truth again and again, and more and more people got to know about the truth of Falun Dafa.
