Early Days in China: A Food Vendor Learns About Falun Gong
(Clearwisdon.net) Since Master began lecturing on the Fa in May 13, 1992 the cultivation practice has become attractive to many people and brought them to cultivation. People who practice Dafa are healthier, have high morals, and become better people overall.
Once during the summer we made use of school classrooms to conduct a large-scale group study and practice. More than a hundred practitioners participated. We occupied several classrooms and stayed in the school for several days. Most of us brought snacks from home, and a food vendor arrived at mealtime selling steamed buns (carts selling steamed buns are as ubiquitous in certain parts of China as hotdog carts are in many cities in the Western world).
Initially, the vendor was a bit worried that he might not be able to handle a crowd of more than a hundred people. He was extremely careful to make sure he was correctly paid, and that people weren't taking more than they had paid for. Seeing that we were behaving in an orderly fashion, he gradually relaxed and focused on receiving the money while letting us pick up the buns. He received the correct amount of money for each order.
He later became even more relaxed. He placed the container of steamed buns in the middle of the yard and a cash box next to the container. He would stay aside, relax and smile at us, letting us put money into the cash box and pick up the buns ourselves. He later counted the money and always had the right amount for the number of buns sold.
Finally he would simply pick up his stuff, including the cash box, and leave without even counting the money. He had come to learn what kind of people Falun Gong practitioners are, and he no longer had any worries.
