A Schoolteacher Clarifies the Truth about Falun Gong While Doing Home Visits
(Clearwisdom.net) Students in China are immersed in the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) culture and forced to read the CCP's text books that slander Falun Gong.
I am a seventh grade teacher, and see this firsthand. One day, a little girl asked me, "Teacher, do you practice Falun Gong?" I replied, "Yes. How did you know?" She said that her mother told her. I then asked her, "Is Falun Gong good or bad? Are Falun Gong practitioners good?" She answered, "Falun Gong is not good. Those who practice Falun Gong are bad people." I felt very sad after hearing that. Looking at this young girl, tears started to well up in my eyes. The evil CCP persecutes Falun Gong practitioners and destroys sentient beings, and even the kids are not spared. I deeply realized how urgent it is to clarify the truth and save sentient beings. I must let my students know that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good and that Falun Dafa is good.
I was reported to the police by students' parents twice. I also found out from the Minghui website (Chinese version of Clearwisdom) that fellow practitioners who are also teachers mainly suffered persecution after being reported by students' parents. I saw that it is critical to clarify the truth to students' parents.
Every day when I teach my students, I discipline myself with the standard of Dafa. By setting an example with my own actions, I provide a positive influence for the students by assimilating to the Fa. The students would then tell their parents about how they feel about me, which would give their parents a good impression of me.
I also take note of each student's home address and use the holidays to visit them. I inquire about the students' situation outside school and discuss education methods with their parents. After establishing this trust and good relationship, the parents are more likely to accept the truth about Falun Gong when I talk to them about it. Lastly, I make sure to tell each parent that only by realizing that "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" will each sentient being have a bright future.
The results are usually good. The parents that I visit with the most often greet me warmly, and I have become at ease when clarifying the truth to them. However, due to my attachment of being comfortable, there are still many families that I have not yet visited. I will get rid of my human notions and steadily walk the cultivation path, so that all students and parents who have a predestined relationship with me will come to know the truth and be saved.
