(Clearwisdom.net) On the afternoon of January 14, 2006, class was in session at Chung-Li Minghui School. Unlike a usual class, the young students, all Falun Dafa practitioners, were looking forward to this class in particular because they would gather to send Chinese New Year greetings to revered Master.

As usual, the practitioners read Dafa books attentively and sent forth righteous thoughts. Several young practitioners recited Master's article "The Closer to the End, the More Diligent You Should Be." In the new year, the practitioners will continue to learn and cultivate, and be more diligent. Practicing Falun Gong, they learned to judge right and wrong based on Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance. They like to study and behave well. They are happy children.

Sending forth righteous thoughts

At story time, the young practitioners heard an interesting story. In the story, a 5-year-old boy thought of his tired father and wanted to wash the car for his father. He could not find a clean cloth, so he used a wire brush to wash the car. After the soap was rinsed, many scratches appeared on the body of the car. His father was angry, but the following thought came to his mind as he was considering punishing the boy: "I shouldn't look at the surface, but at the heart within." Thus, the father forgave his son, hugged him and thanked him for caring. The story helped the young practitioners understand Master's teaching regarding thinking of others before oneself, and paying more attention to other's strengths. Thinking of others more will lead to better ways of handling difficult issues.

The young practitioners put on exercise suits, practiced the exercises and played waist drums. Several young practitioners are too young to join the school, but practiced the exercises and played drums with the others.

At the end, they took a group photo to send New Year greetings to Master and sang a song for Master. The song is titled "Master, Happy New Year." With their young voices, the song expresses all practitioners' wish:

"Greetings, Master! Happy New Year! Disciples in the new year will read Dafa books more. Greetings, Master. Happy New Year! Disciples in the new year will do better! We will let world people know Falun Dafa is great! We will help the world's people praise Falun Dafa!"
