A Letter to Practitioners Who Work for NTDTV
Practitioners working for NTDTV,
How are you? You are really going through a hardship!
I would like to use Chinese Chess as an example to analyze the situation that NTDTV is facing. There are always three stages to a Chinese Chess game: the setup, the middle, and the conclusion. During the setup stage, the two sides plan their territories and increase their influence. At this time, although both sides are in conflict, they are relatively peaceful. In the middle stage, the sides start attacking each other. However, the final result still cannot be determined. The conclusion is the most important. There is "engaging in hand-to-hand combat, and fighting for each bit of land." A right or wrong move will determine the survival of a group of pieces. From the start of the persecution to the incidents in Flushing, NY, and now to the situation with NTDTV and Eutelsat, I think that it's the time for "engaging in hand-to-hand combat." Of course, it's also the time for "fighting for each bit of land"--saving as many sentient beings as possible.
It has been about 10 days since the NTDTV signal stopped broadcasting to China. I feel very worried and anxious. We keep printing the booklet and flyers to promote NTDTV. If we stop promoting NTDTV because of the evil interferences, we are actually "satisfying the mind of the evil forces." No matter what happens, I strongly believe that everything that exists for the purpose of saving sentient beings will have a bright future because they are the most righteous and greatest things of the universe. Practitioners from China support you with righteous thoughts!
I would like to share the following with you.
Master told us in his teaching,
"But you often emphasize the results, instead of fully explaining to them the facts that you should explain during that process. Only when all people know the truth that they should know are you really validating the Fa and clarifying the facts." (from "Lecturing on and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference")
Ten days have passed, but there has been no response from Eutelsat. As a company, Eutelsat provides service to its customers. Of course, there should be a written report about why their service was interrupted, and their customers have the right to know the schedule for resuming the service. In my opinion, Eutelsat needs to disclose this information to the public and use this opportunity to demonstrate the superiority of its service. If we can bring this situation to the attention of the public and Eutelsat's peers, public opinion could hasten the progress of the situation. On the other hand, we should take the opportunity to thoroughly clarify the truth on a large scale and to save sentient beings. People should also establish their position with this opportunity. Look how many "chess pieces" we could save.
The above is my personal opinion. Please kindly point out anything improper.
