Thoughts after Watching NTDTV's Holiday Wonders Show
(Clearwisdom.net) On December 21, 2006, I went to see New Tang Dynasty Television's Holiday Wonders Show for the second time. Before the show, I stood in front of the theater and handed out flyers to passers-by and to those who came to see the show. On the street, I saw buses coming one by one to drop people off at the theater. There were all sorts of Asian people and Western people. An old Chinese man walked up to me, and I handed him a set of truth-clarification materials. After taking the materials, he said he would like more. I gave him a couple more, and soon he ran back to me like an innocent child and asked for still more materials. He was giving those materials to his Chinese friends. After seeing this, I was moved. Since I wasn't able to give the materials to all those Chinese people personally, this old man made sure they got the information. After that, groups of African-American students were dropped off. I was touched by their innocent and pure appearance. Then a tall girl with blond hair passed by on crutches and went to the ticket office. Seeing all these people of different races and difference social classes coming for the show from all over the world, I could not help shedding tears. I saw so many sincere faces. I knew the opportunity to see Holiday Wonders was so precious for them. It was Master who led them there.
After that, I followed the stream of people and entered the theater myself. As the music gradually rose for the first performance, "The Vows of Old," tears filled my eyes again. Such wonderful music seemed to shake people's sleeping hearts, awaken their conscience and kindness, and inspire their desire to follow the cosmic characteristics of Truth, Compassion and Tolerance. Jiang Min's and Bai Xue's singing was mighty and profound, seeming to come from Heaven. Their voices went through many substances and were stronger than the shock wave of an atomic bomb, stirring people's souls.
The actress who played the role of Yue Fei's mother in the performance, "The Loyalty of Yue Fei," gave a lively performance. When I heard the theme song, "The Loyalty of Yue Fei," my tears flowed. Every cell in my body was touched by the music. Every note of the music seemed to describe a remote historic story. When thinking of Master, who came to the human world, finding us, and leading us to where we are today, thinking that the audience of thousands was so lucky to be here and witness Buddha's infinite grace, my tears flowed again. My whole body shook. I cried and cried. I deeply realized my shortcomings in cultivation from deep in my heart. Although I have been studying the Fa these several years, I never had the deep understanding that I understood now.
NTDTV's "Holiday Wonders" show touched me greatly. I think that it was because my knowing side was moved to tears upon seeing that Master has unconditionally done so many things for so many lives. NTDTV's "Holiday Wonders" show was so powerful. It displayed righteousness in both form and content and exposed the unrighteousness of all lives. Those unrighteous factors include our shortcomings in long-term cultivation as Dafa practitioners. I believe that all who watched the show would realize their own shortcomings, to greater or lesser degrees. Not only were the world's people saved, but Dafa practitioners were also cleansed. I deeply understand that Master gives all lives the best. We are saving all beings and we are also lives saved by Dafa.
How we looked upon NTDTV's show and what we did for the show, including watching, helping, criticizing, only stopping at the surface of doing specific things or completely immersing ourselves in and unconditionally harmonizing what the show needed, was a measure of our "xinxing" and our positions.
