Saving Sentient Beings Is Fulfilling our Sacred Vows
(Clearwisdom.net) The article, Sharing My Cultivation Path of Seven Years of Life Experience at a Truth-Clarification Material Station (http://minghui.ca/mh/articles/2008/4/24/177105.html), left me with tears in my eyes and overwhelming feelings. I have worked on the preparation of truth-clarification materials since 2000, from time to time. In no way does it compare to the hard work done by fellow practitioners at other truth-clarification material stations. I would like to summarize a few of my understandings from working at truth-clarification material stations.
Falun Dafa cultivation is a very serious thing and there is no room for even a tiny bit of falsehood. Falun Dafa cultivation is our own choice, the only right choice as validated through numerous examples. Fellow practitioners who have stumbled along this cultivation path should never allow past mistakes to block them. They should put down the burden of regret and get rid of attachments. If we seriously cultivate, really and truly cultivate, Master will not give up on us. In fact, great Master is always near us. The key is that we must truly persist in cultivation.
Trusting fellow practitioners is an extension of our trust in our great Master, especially when fellow practitioners are making truth-clarification materials. They are cultivators working under the direction of Dafa to produce items for saving sentient beings. Practitioners need to trust the fellow practitioners who are making the truth-clarification materials. Perhaps some among them are not doing well, but that is an attachment needing to be gotten rid of during cultivation. I know there are many wealthy people among fellow practitioners, who give up luxury and comfort daily to participate in making the truth-clarification materials. Their ability to discard luxury and comfort is an indication of the responsibility they feel for validating Dafa and saving sentient beings. This is a reflection of their righteous thoughts, solid trust in Master and willingness to act unselfishly. Practitioners working on truth-clarification materials and practitioners who are not, are in fact doing the same thing. They are validating Dafa and saving sentient beings. The differences are only cultivation forms at the surface or different paths taken. This is not an issue of who supports or feeds who. Any problems or issues are only getting rid of attachments of selfishness.
Dafa practitioners are one body and Master has addressed this issue many times during Fa lectures. We need to pay serious attention. What Master says is Fa. Disciples should unconditionally follow Master's Fa when doing things. This is true cultivation that allows us to qualify as Fa-rectification Dafa disciples. Evil, at this time in the human world, is still very malicious. The old forces continue to look for loopholes through which to persecute Dafa practitioners all the time. If most of us can follow what Master requested, for example, "The next person's things are your things,1 and your things are his things. " (Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. Fa Conference, 2002) then we can form an indestructible body of one. Then, evil beings will destroy themselves.
I expended effort on making truth-clarification materials, but compared to the main truth-clarification material stations, those efforts were really limited. My reason for writing this was to let those practitioners making materials know others' situations. I hope this can help remove misunderstandings and break through the walls between us. Together we can do well validating Dafa and saving sentient beings. This is cultivation. This is to fulfill our sacred vows.
I will take this chance to thank compassionate Master again!
If there is anything wrong in the above understanding, fellow practitioners please point it out.
