Don't Forget Your Mission--Promote Shen Yun Widely
(Clearwisdom.net) Ever since the Chinese New Year, the Shen Yun Performing Arts Company has toured the world. These artists are performing a measureless function in saving people outside of China.
In watching the 2009 Shen Yun performance DVD, I understood that the show is filled with the Buddha's mercy and it is a gift of salvation. It also displays the Buddha law's dignity and sacredness. The show highlights the subject of "Knowing the True Picture Offers Ultimate Hope." Hearing songs written by Teacher and sung by Falun Dafa practitioners moved people to tears. This brings home to practitioners the importance of their mission, which is saving sentient beings, as well as the urgency of time.
Distributing the Shen Yun performance DVD and bringing more Chinese people to the theater is one of the best ways to save predestined people in China, in the brutal environment created by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The CCP distorts facts, slanders Falun Gong, and brutally persecutes practitioners. Therefore, to widely spread Shen Yun is our sacred mission!
I work in a private company in a special zone. I travel approximately 80 kilometers (50 miles) daily, and I also must work on Saturdays. I purchase discs, disc covers, and other materials on Sundays and make copies during my lunch breaks. I take them home and test them on my DVD player to make certain that every disc is complete and working. I then put a cover on each one and put them in a paper bag. After I made copies, I gave a few dozen to another practitioner. Some were then passed on to other practitioners. Some practitioners used the ones I made as master copies to produce more copies and then gave the copies to relatives, friends, and acquaintances. I gave the Shen Yun discs to my relatives, friends, colleagues, and others.
When I delivered Shen Yun discs to the elderly, I sometimes took a box of healthy food or tea with me and told them it was good for their minds and bodies to watch the show over and over, as this global Chinese show contained enormous Buddha law energy. Giving the discs to them like this was natural and appropriate. It not only showed the younger generation's filial piety but also brought blessings for the New Year and was good for others to accept and watch.
One of my father's friends was an outstanding high school principal who retired quite a few years ago. After I moved to the special zone, he moved home, and I lost contact with him for over ten years. I wanted to give him a Shen Yun disc last year, but I couldn't find his address and phone number. Through a university classmate, I finally found the last place he worked before retirement, and I was able to contact him through his last job.
My husband has many brothers and sisters, more men than women. During the three years of the Great Famine caused by the CCP, there was not enough food for the entire family. Luckily, an uncle of my mother-in-law brought grain from the countryside, so the family did not starve. I wanted to give him a Shen Yun disc, but we had lost contact many years ago. I inquired after him and finally found his home address. I sent him a Shen Yun disc and a gift.
My uncle and aunt died early, and my two cousins married in the countryside. I only saw them once during my childhood, and they were now nearly 70 years old. How could I send them a Shen Yun disc? I remembered when a cousin visited me last year, he said he had been to their homes, so I got the address from this cousin and sent the disc.
When my father-in-law was alive, he had an old friend, a mechanical and electrical expert. He was interrogated and persecuted by the Party during the Great Cultural Revolution. His son organized and participated in the June 4 event when he was at the university. After he graduated, the management where he worked assigned him to the workshop as a laborer, but still had not entrusted him with any responsibility. After I found out his son's phone number, I asked if they wanted to see the Shen Yun show. He said yes and agreed that it was much better than the CCP New Year's show.
At gatherings with friends and past colleagues, I give everyone a set of Shen Yun discs, including my colleagues and customers.
Some people said after watching, "The program is mature and perfect. It has a great impact."
Some people said from bottom of their hearts, "The show promotes 5,000 years of Chinese traditional culture, and advocates morality, benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, and fidelity. It purifies modern people's twisted thoughts and soul."
Some people excitedly said, "The show mainly promotes Falun Dafa and expresses true thinking that Chinese today dare not express."
A couple who teaches music said, "The songs, dances, music, background, and colors are perfectly unified and perfectly matched. Truly a magnificent, sacred, beautiful and vivid show. The Mainland New Year's Eve show is simply a hodgepodge of group alienation dance, vulgar and tasteless, putting all sorts of things together and lacking coherence."
I also gave a disc to the former custodian in my company. A few days later, she said when she saw me, "The program is so attractive, even my son said that it is from ancient to modern times and that every program is great!"
My daughter's wedding ceremony will be soon. I am responsible for the guests' invitations on the bride's side. I put a Shen Yun disc in every invitation. I want these relatives and friends who are coming to know the truth, so Dafa can save them and they can have a glorious future.
The Shen Yun show is a form through which Teacher personally guides practitioners in widely saving people. Teacher said,
"Every show was like that. People were deeply stirred and moved. In this dimension it was young people who were performing, while in other dimensions, many of my Law Bodies and many divine beings were doing so. (Applause) The strength of the impact on people, as with the changes it caused in them, were very similar to what happened back when I personally taught the Fa early on. (Applause) So it has effected tremendous changes in people."
"Upon leaving the theater, audience members' initial attitude toward Dafa disciples had basically undergone a complete change--their attitudes toward Falun Gong all changed. With that shift in the person's thought, his fate--that is, whether he remains--is decided." ("Fa Teaching at the 2007 New York Fa Conference")
From early February to early April this year, I made over 140 sets of the Shen Yun discs, and gave over 100 sets to my relatives, friends, and predestined people. I must make persistent efforts and widely spread Shen Yun, the magic weapon for saving people. I want to let more Mainlander's walk into the Shen Yun theater and obtain salvation.
