Thoughts on Studying Master's Lecture, "Fa Teaching at the U.S. Capital"
(Clearwisdom.net) After studying Master's "Fa Teaching at the U.S. Capital," it seems that all Dafa practitioners have felt the urgency of offering sentient beings salvation and have become clearer on the seriousness of their responsibilities as Dafa practitioners. Based on each person's own situation, all have used various means and methods to clarify the truth and guide people to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party. The following are a few examples.
1. At a market
We can frequently see the scenario of practitioners explaining the truth at several markets nearby. They are usually in teams of two, with one explaining the truth and the other staying aside to send righteous thoughts, keep an eye open for trouble and help with the conversation. Practitioners have actually used this method for two years and have already clarified the truth to many people in the shops and stalls at these markets nearby. If one casually asks a stall owner, "Have you already withdrawn from the Party?" most of them would answer, "Yes, I did a long time ago!" If you ask, "Have you read the "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party?"" The answer will usually be, "Yes, a lady gave it to me. Do you have any new materials?"
A practitioner might be stopped by a stall owner while walking by and be asked, "Have you brought me the book?" A middle-aged woman was buying tea at an open-air tea stall. The owner said, "The normal price for this tea is 20 yuan. I'll give you a discount and sell it for 18 yuan." The woman said, "Didn't you sell it to the other two persons for 15 yuan?" The stall owner answered, "Those two are Falun Gong practitioners; do you practice, too? If so, I'll also sell the tea to you for 15 yuan." As practitioners often bring him the truth-clarifying materials, this owner is quite fond of the practitioners. He said, "These people are so nice. I charge all Falun Gong practitioners three yuan less than others."
2. At a construction site
More than 30 workers at a rail bridge construction site are villagers from a nearby mountainous area. Two practitioners used their lunchtime and brought fliers, booklets, the Nine Commentaries and CDs to explain the truth to them. "We've brought you some books. You'll know the facts and have a bright future after you read them. Would you like to have them?" As soon we say this, they would come over to accept the materials. Our conversation with them tells us that many of them have not yet learned the facts. When we left, they asked us to bring them more materials next time. At that time, seeing people's eagerness to get the materials made us realize profoundly our need for increased our efforts in the remote mountainous areas, where public transportation is inconvenient.
One older practitioner guided more than 30 people at a road maintenance site in one morning to withdraw from the Party. The workers accepted over a dozen copies of the Nine Commentaries. This practitioner, almost 60 years old, rides her bicycle almost daily to the market and construction sites. Even when she is walking, she would not let any opportunity pass to clarify the truth to people. Since the beginning of this year, she has guided about 1,300 people to withdraw from the Party, and many of them are veteran Party members and officials. In a few days in July alone, she distributed about 120 copies of the Nine Commentaries during the evening to people relaxing outside, chatting.
3. Two young practitioners who are busy during the day see other practitioners stepping out to clarify the facts and are anxious to do so, too. They found evenings to be good times to do so, when people have finished dinner and are outside chatting with each other. One evening two weeks ago, they left the village, and as long as they met people along the way who were outside, they would tell them the facts about Falun Gong. That night they helped 16 people to withdraw from the Party and distributed over 20 copies of truth-clarifying materials.
The next evening they went to another nearby village to clarify the truth. While walking they kept sending righteous thoughts. Most people were able to listen to them seriously and accepted the materials. There were also some rude ones who did not know the facts. They threatened and cursed the practitioners, and even said they would report them to the police. The two practitioners remained unaffected and persuaded them with nice words. The power of the practitioners' compassionate words dissolved the villagers' demon nature. These two practitioners' way of clarifying the truth is a hint to all, and more practitioners are now also doing it this way.
4.Visiting old friends
A retired government official practitioner had worked in difference places. He rides on his motorcycle almost daily to visit his old friends. One day, he visited six former Party secretaries and gave them the Nine Commentaries. All withdrew from the Party. One day it was quite late, and he would not have enough time to visit two of his friends. On the way back, he happened to run into one of them. Soon after, that person agreed to withdraw after a conversation. When saying goodbye to his friend, he found that one of his tires was flat. Fortunately there was a car repair shop nearby. When the tire was removed, it turned out to be fine. He immediately understood that this was Master's arrangement to have him offer salvation to the two repair shop employees. It was successful; both accepted the materials and have withdrawn from the Youth League and Party.
Master taught while "Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference at the U.S. Capital" in 2006,
"People with predestined relationships and those who can be saved can be made to--made to by Master's Law Bodies, righteous gods, or the immense field that Dafa has formed in the world--appear right before you in any of a range of settings, providing them with a chance to learn the truth. But you have to carry it out, and it doesn't work if you're not out there doing things. "
A certain practitioner thought of someone he wanted to visit to next day to help withdraw from the Party. The next day before he left home, that specific person arrived to borrow something from this practitioner for work in the fields. On another day the practitioner happened to meet another person in the street whom he wanted to visit.
Another practitioner had planned to invite his relatives for dinner to tell them the facts about Falun Gong, but even before he started to invite them, they arrived for a visit.
During the process of validating the Fa and assisting Master to save people, as long as practitioners' xinxing level meets the standard and we do things with our pure mindsets, we will be able to succeed with the many things we want to do.
