Encouraging Fellow Practitioners Outside of China to Contribute to the Splendor of World Falun Dafa Day
(Clearwisdom.net) With this year marking the 11th anniversary of World Falun Dafa Day, recently a notice entitled Announcing Request for Submissions for World Falun Dafa Day (http://www.clearwisdom.net/html/articles/2010/4/5/115902.html) was published on Clearwisdom.net. Now, practitioners who have participated from the beginning of this event, as well as those who began practicing Falun Dafa in later years, have a special opportunity to share what this day and what Falun Dafa means to them.
In "To the First Fa Conference in India" Master wrote:
"I hope that India's Dafa disciples may be like those of other nationalities, study the Fa well and abundantly--and do so frequently--become true cultivators of Dafa, and shoulder the responsibility of helping Dafa to spread widely and save sentient beings."
In my understanding, the request for submissions for World Falun Dafa Day is another opportunity to "shoulder our responsibilities of helping Dafa to spread widely and save sentient beings." If we haven't contributed enough in the past, let this World Falun Dafa Day be the impetus to begin doing so.
This year, I hope more Western practitioners will contribute to the splendor of World Falun Dafa Day 2010 with submissions of articles, artwork, interviews (of practitioners or supporters), photos, music, etc. that will give readers of Clearwisdom a look back at the last ten years of Falun Dafa spreading around the world. And since the May 5 deadline for submissions is coming up soon, it's possible practitioners could think of items that they have already produced in the process of clarifying the truth that, perhaps with some modification, could be suitable for this special occasion.
Besides a much needed Western perspective on the significance of World Falun Dafa Day, these contributions will also be a great inspiration to our fellow practitioners in China. We Western practitioners have benefited immeasurably from the cultivation experiences mainland Chinese practitioners have published on the Clearwisdom website. Let us honor their great efforts by contributing more ourselves.
As the noble cries of "Falun Dafa Hao (Falun Dafa Is Good!)!" have echoed throughout Tiananmen Square and the dark prisons of China, let us echo back from the rest of the world: "Falun Dafa Hao!"
