Our Small Fa Study Group
(Clearwisdom.net) A fellow practitioner suggested that I write down my experiences in validating the Fa over the past few years. I feel that what I have done is nothing extraordinary. Instead, I would like to share with you about our Fa study group as well as our going out to the public to clarify the truth.
In order to do the three things better, I think there is no other way than to study the Fa well. Therefore, we steadfastly continue to study the Fa regardless of any kind of weather--rainy, stormy, chilly or icy. While studying the Fa, we avoid idle chatter. We concentrate on studying the Fa. We read Zhuan Falun, Teacher's articles, and Minghui articles. If any more time is left, we discuss problems related to validating the Fa and or personal tribulations related to cultivation. We share our experiences and raise our levels together, and we lose no time.
Over the years, we have never stopped clarifying the truth of Dafa to the public and saving people regardless of the challenges we face. In the beginning, I myself cycled down to the villages, some quite faraway, to spread the truth of Dafa. Later on I rode a tricycle carrying my 70-year-old mother to clarify the truth. Early on she was a little afraid, but gradually she became bold enough to clarify the truth even in bus stations, talking to strangers.
Another time I carried an 80-year-old woman from my Fa study group on my tricycle to other villages to spread the truth of Dafa. Although it was cold out, we both drank cold water to quench our thirst and ate dried food to fill our stomachs. She diligently does a Dafa disciple's three things. Regardless of weather, every morning she rides a small tricycle to the villages, vegetable markets, and bus stations to clarify the truth and deliver materials, and in the afternoon she comes to my house to study the Fa. At night she sleeps very little, always insisting on studying the Fa and doing the exercises. She is illiterate, but works hard to identify Chinese characters to read Zhuan Falun.
One time in the year 2005, this older practitioner really moved my heart with her compassion. "Granny Ma", as she is affectionately known, insisted that I bring her to Beijing to send forth righteous thoughts to help the Beijing practitioners, even though she had serious sickness karma in her lungs. That made it very difficult for her to breathe, and almost equally difficult to swallow her rice because her throat was so sore. Under these circumstances, I brought my 70-year-old mother and 80-year-old Granny Ma to reach Beijing safely under the protection of our compassionate Teacher. We stayed in Beijing for about five days. On the buses, we told the passengers the facts about Falun Dafa. At Tiananmen Square, we sent forth righteous thoughts and clarified the truth to the general public. On our way back home, we were clarifying the truth on the train, telling people how Falun Gong teaches people to be good. We exposed the facts behind the fabricated stories of killings and self-immolations reported by the television stations. We also told the people about the cruel persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. We even demonstrated the exercises. The passengers in the back seats were standing up to watch 80-year-old Granny Ma sitting in the double lotus meditation position, and they were all praising her, saying how great she was. Through all this truth clarification, lots of people were able to understand the truth about Falun Dafa.
We hope that our fellow practitioners will not miss the opportunity to come out to clarify the truth and save people, and rescue fellow practitioners who are detained.
