Compassionately Saving Sentient Beings
(Clearwisdom.net) Greetings Master. Greetings fellow practitioners!
I am a practitioner who "clarifies the facts," distributes the "Nine Commentarieson the Communist Party" and urges people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, doing so at Swiss tourist attractions.
Master told us many times that Dafa disciples' mission during the Fa-rectification period is saving people. Obviously, time is extremely precious, as He reminded us. Clarifying the truth face-to-face at tourist attractions is an obvious and effective method.
Having done this activity for more than three years at tourist attractions, I had a profound insight that this is the path that Master arranged for me. Each day I study the Fa, look inward when there is any conflict, and continue to adjust myself to the Fa requirements. I have gradually matured in the process, and my path is becoming smoother. Taking my advice, more and more people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I would like to talk about my experiences. Due to the limits of my level, please kindly point out anything incorrect.
1. Cooperating as One Body
Each Monday to Friday I clarify the facts at tourist attractions, regardless of weather. Each day another practitioner helps me. Initially I only focused on distributing leaflets, thinking the more we hand out, the more people we can save. Fa study has made me gradually realize that even though it is important to hand people leaflets, it is hard to tell whether or not people are saved. If I exhorted them to quit the CCP, I would clearly know that they are saved. So, I focused my efforts on urging people to quit the CCP. In the past, if leaflets weren't accepted I urged the people to take them. If they refused, I would leave it alone. Eventually I gradually realized that it is not important whether the leaflets are accepted. What's more important is that I need to tell them the truth and get them to quit the Party. When I meet irrational people, other practitioners send righteous thoughts to support me.
Once I met a very irrational, rude person, but from what I could tell he was not a bad person. At the time I remembered Master's words,
"While working, your tone of voice, your kindheartedness, and your reasoning can change a person's heart, whereas commands never could!" ("Clearheadedness," from Essentials for Further Advancement)
I spoke calmly, telling him the true facts. Practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts alongside to support me. Finally, he agreed to quit the Party.
2. Clarifying the Facts to Everyone--Urging People Individually to Quit the CCP
Most of the people I encounter at tourist attractions are tourists from China whose minds are most severely poisoned by the evil Party's propaganda. They know very well the brutality of the evil Party's methods of tormenting people, and I understand their fear. I clarify the truth to them as a group but urge them individually to quit the CCP.
On one occasion, the truth-clarifying materials I handed to a person included the China Feature. The headline was, "Party members calling to arrest Jiang." Approximately forty people were waiting to board the bus. No one else accepted the materials. Just as I was about to tell them the truth, the one who had accepted the materials asked suddenly, "Can you tell us about Jiang?" It was a great opportunity for me to start. I described how Jiang was a traitor and related the scandals during his visits abroad - such as his lack of diplomatic etiquette, and that he combed his hair in public, etc. One of the bystanders asked, "Is it true that he also picked his nose?" I said, "Yes, it was all on the big feature." Many laughed at him. It was obvious that people disdain him.
I continued with the story of Jiang being interviewed by a reporter from the French newspaper Le Figaro, when Jiang lied and vilified Falun Gong, and how on his return to China Jiang called a meeting of the National People's Congress, wrote to the Politbureau Committee members, and staged the self-immolation incident at Tiananmen Square. How Falun Gong practitioners are arrested en masse and persecuted with various torture methods, that their organs are harvested while they are still alive and sold for huge profits, and how their bodies are cremated to eliminate the evidence, an intolerable injustice.
Everyone listened intently - apparently sympathetic to Falun Gong. I continued to say that Falun Dafa has spread across eighty countries worldwide, how the practice had been awarded over a thousand official proclamations and how the practice benefits countless people. Telling my own story, I told them how I used to suffer from various illnesses and took more medications than food each day, and that I walked with a cane. But, miraculously, fifty days after I began practicing, all of my illnesses disappeared. I once climbed a 2,300 meter-tall (7,500 ft.) mountain and did not take a cable car. "Look at me! I am nearly seventy years old, but my hearing and my teeth are still good." One asked loudly, "Is that your own hair?" I answered immediately, "It is! Not a wig." He shouted right away, "Falun Dafa is good!" Everyone turned to look at me. Some said, "You don't look your age." Someone said, "You look like a 50-year-old." Someone else said, "I am just over 40 but I look older than you and have all kinds of sicknesses. Can you give me a book (Zhuan Falun)? I will also practice at home." Some said, "Give me a leaflet, I will read it carefully." Once he took the leaflet, everyone accepted one.
I continued, "The evil CCP killed 80 million of our fellow countrymen. Now it persecutes Falun Gong, and among other atrocities, commits the crime of organ harvesting. The CCP's acts cause indignation in both Gods and men. The heavens will eliminate the CCP. Hurry and quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations! Over 40 million have quit! You can use an alias or nicknames. I can help you quit the CCP, to guarantee your safety and future!" Then I came up with some names and urged the people to quit individually. Everyone I talked to agreed to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. It was as if they were registering. Then the tour guide called, "Get ready to board the bus." Some waved goodbye to me. Before they even returned to China the word spread. One lady hurried over, "I heard that you can help me to quit something. You can also come up with names?" I said, "Yes, I can help anyone quit the CCP, the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers, and I can pick a name for you." She said, "I also want to quit. Please give me a name." I looked at her and said, "You are very pretty. I'll call you Meili, a pretty girl." She said happily, "Thank you, thank you," and waved goodbye. Out of forty or so people, 32 quit the CCP.
3. Not Letting Go Any Predestined People
Once I met a man who seemed to be an intellectual. We engaged in a very pleasant conversation. When I spoke about Falun Gong, his attitude was very positive. When I mentioned the evil Party, he also expressed discontent. When I exposed the evil Party he even added things. He was indeed a clear-headed person. But when I urged him to quit the CCP he would not do it. I thought, such a good person. I would regret it if I couldn't convince him to quit. I kept running into him, which I believe was no co-incidence. I thought it was arranged for me to save him. Every time I ran into him I urged him to quit, but he refused to do it. I looked inward and found that I was not patient enough, or not compassionate enough. My mindset for saving people was not quite there yet. I remembered Master's teaching,
"Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in spring
Righteous thoughts can save the people in this world" ("The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos," from Hong Yin Volume II. Translation Version A)
Following Master's teachings, I tried to save him yet again when he was about to board the bus. I said, "Mister, we will go our separate ways. For you to come thousands of miles so we can meet each other, means an unusual, predestined relationship! You have joined the CCP, the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers. You will encounter an unavoidable disaster when the heavens eliminate the CCP, unless you quit. It is only because you are such a good person that I urge you so earnestly. It's for you own good." He said, "I can feel it. You are really a good person. Let's go with what you said." I asked him to pick a name for himself. He said, "Let's use 'San Ke' - three OKs for quitting the CCP, the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers." I said, "I am really happy for you." When we parted he said he would find a book (Zhuan Falun) to have a look. Like this he finally quit after five tries.
4. Master is Right by My Side
I once waited two hours at a tourist site without any tourists turning up, and only one person quit the CCP. I was thinking that even if only one person quit, today's trip wasn't wasted. Soon a bus full of children turned up. I immediately went up to hand out leaflets. Five or six teachers took materials. I started to urge the children to quit the Young Pioneers. The teachers got scared. They took the children into a watch shop and asked team leaders to keep them from having contact with me. Without seeing the children, how would I be able to save them? I was sad and worried. I sent forth righteous thoughts asking for Master's help. Soon Master sent groups after groups of children out. Initially, one child came out and smiled at me. I asked him, "Little friend, do you want to bring safety home?" He said "yes." I said, "During the Sichuan earthquake those who had quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations were safe. If I give you a name like"little warrior," would you quit?" He said OK. Another four came over, and I told them how the evil CCP suppressed the Sichuan earthquake forecasts, and how the corrupt officials created shoddy-built school buildings that caused large numbers of children to be buried alive.
"Nowadays the CCP has no officials who are not corrupt. The heavens will eliminate the CCP. You should hurry up to quit the Young Pioneers." They all said OK. I came up with three names. Three children quickly took them and quit. The fourth child remained silent. I said, "Why don't you pick a name for yourself?" He said, "I will call myself stupid." I asked, "Why? You are not stupid." He said, "Three names have all been taken by them. I am the only one left behind. Am I not stupid? I will go with that." I said, "A name doesn't really matter. If you are serious, I will help you to quit with this name." He said OK.
Another two teenage boys came over. They asked right away, "What renouncement? We joined not only the Young Pioneers, but also the Communist Youth League. We also would like to join the Party." I asked them, "Do you know what the Communist Party actually is? They said that the Communist Party allowed them to come out and play. I asked, "Did the Communist Party give you money, or did your parents earned the money by working very hard? Your parents work very hard to also pay taxes to sustain the Communist Party. Nowadays the CCP does not have any un-corrupt officials. Think again. Are the originators of the Communist Party Chinese people? Aren't they Marx and Lenin?" The two teenagers agreed. I continued, "We should be good Chinese children rather than descendants of Marx and Lenin." One said, "My dreams are shattered." The other said, "Mine too." I said, "Good. Let's pick some names and quit the Youth League." They both agreed. One asked, "Are you a Falun Gong practitioner?" I answered yes. I told them the beauty of Dafa and the benefits to my health, and that I once had climbed a 2,300 meter mountain without taking a cable car. The children asked, "Did you wear any mountain climbing shoes?" I said, no. They said, "You are amazing." I said, "Not me. It's Falun Dafa that is amazing."
Then three more girls came over. I showed them a picture of the stone in Guizhou with the hidden characters. One girl said, "The CCP is doomed. Look, it's true. When my mother got phone calls urging her to quit the CCP, this stone was mentioned. But she didn't believe it. Now I have finally seen it." I said, "You need to tell your mother when you get home." She said, "Of course." I urged them, "I will pick names for you. Will you quit the Young Pioneers?" The three girls all quit. I asked the girl, "Did your mother quit?" She said no. I said, "When you get back you need to urge your relatives to quit the CCP to guarantee their safety." They all nodded. Seventeen out of the thirty or so children quit.
5. People are Awakening
One time, forty or so people got off a bus. I spoke up and said, "I will tell you a piece of news. The heavens are going to eliminate the CCP. Forty million people have quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Did you know that 4,000 corrupt officials took 400 billion of the Chinese taxpayers' money overseas?" One said, "Far more than that." Another shouted, "Down with the CCP." A middle-aged woman walked over and said to me, "Give me the leaflets. I'll help you distribute." I told them to hurry up and quit the CCP, to guarantee their safety and a bright future. "I can help you quit with an alias or nicknames, or whatever." The woman who handed out leaflets returned to ask me, "What did you say to quit?" I said, "Quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I can help you to pick a name. Will you quit?" She said yes. Later I asked people one by one. Everyone including the guide renounced the CCP. Like registering, some thirty people quit the CCP.
For three years I have clarified the facts, distributed the Nine Commentaries and urged people to quit the CCP at tourist attractions. Initially there were few tourists, even fewer Chinese tourists, due to the Swiss government's strict controls regarding foreign visitors. During the last couple of years there have been more and more tourists, especially Chinese tourists. To begin with, I focused on handing out leaflets and in two years had only managed to convince 200 people to quit the CCP. As my understanding of Master's teachings relating to saving people deepened, I felt the urgency and thus spent more energy on urging people to quit. I realized that the more people I could get to quit, the more I could save. Between May and August 2008 I managed to get 1,111 people to quit, including professors, engineers, intellectuals, teachers, children, tour guides, ordinary Party members, Party secretaries, ordinary Party officials, VIPs with body-guards, Public Security Bureau police, 610 Office agents, and others. They quit the CCP from the bottom of their hearts. They were saved. Some left me their business cards, hoping to keep in touch. Only by introducing ourselves could I know their identities.
Around the National Mourning Day I took part in activities in Paris, calling upon Eutelsat to resume NTDTV's broadcasting signals to China. I went to Parisian tourist attractions to clarify the facts and save people. I encountered around six or seven hundred Chinese people visiting Paris. Fellow practitioners said that at most there were one or two thousand people. I didn't want to leave. I wanted to save more people, and I delayed my return trip and clarified the facts along with other practitioners in Paris. Practitioners from Northern Europe who came to attend the Eutelsat activities also actively took part in urging people to quit the CCP. Their sense of urgency encouraged me. We studied the Fa and shared continuously. I told them about my breakthrough in urging people to quit and shared with them, based on the Fa. Everyone understood the Fa better and then went to tourist attractions to urge people to quit. Quickly there were breakthroughs. Starting with one or two, gradually a variety of methods were put into action. During the 16 days in Paris, according to incomplete statistics, fellow practitioners in Paris and I managed to get 960 people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
I have enlightened that I can save more and more people and continue more and more smoothly on the path of saving people when I have firm righteous thoughts while doing so. Master sees my sincere mindset and continues to purify it. As a result, my thoughts of saving people become purer and purer. Master also gives me endless wisdom to save the various types of people I meet. Seizing the right opportunities to enter the conversation, I speak compassionately, yet succinctly. More and more people quit as a result. I feel deeply that each of my actions and states, and everything that I have, comes from the Fa and has been given by Master. Master did everything. What I have done is not enough, and is still far from the requirements of Master and of Dafa. I am determined to continue diligently, do the three things well, and do better what Master wants.
Thank you Master. Thank you fellow practitioners.
