Little Practitioners Also Need to Save Sentient Beings
(Minghui.org) Greetings, revered Master! Greetings, dear fellow practitioners!
I’m eleven years old and I’m a young practitioner from Canada. When I was born, my parents were already practicing Dafa. So I was born a little practitioner. My mother took me to Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa when I was three months old. When I was two years old, she taught me to recite Hong Yin. When I was five years old, I could read Zhuan Falun myself. Dafa opened up my wisdom. I was able to read many books from classical Chinese literature, such as Record of the Grand Historian, Comprehensive Mirror for Aid in Government, A History of the Various Kingdoms in the Eastern Zhou Dynasty, Three Kingdoms, and Outlaws of the Marsh. Since I was born, I have always been healthy. I have never taken any medicine, except the immunization injection which was required for attending school.
Passing Xinxing Tests
Often times, I run into xinxing tests. Once, in a young practitioners’ summer camp in Toronto, a little practitioner hid the ball we were playing with. The teacher could not find the ball, and I told the teacher where the ball was hidden. After the class was over, this little practitioner hit me very hard in the stomach. It hurt so much that I could not stand up, and I burst into tears. But I didn’t get angry with him. I knew that a Dafa practitioner should not care about other people’s offenses. After it was over, I continued to play with him.
Another time, two students took my seat on the school bus. I told the driver about it. The driver called the school principal and the principal seated me at the front, next to the preschoolers. Usually that seat is reserved for troublesome students who receive punishment. I did not create any trouble, but somehow I was assigned to that seat. I didn’t argue with them. I knew they were all everyday people. The next day, the school principal put me back to my own seat.
Making Phone Calls on the Global Platform for Little Practitioners
Last year in October, the Global Telephone Truth Clarification Group formed a platform for little practitioners. I joined the platform and began to call people and ask them to quit the CCP. In the beginning, there were only two young practitioners from North America on the platform. Gradually, more and more young practitioners joined us. I have already helped many people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
My first phone call to China was picked up by an elderly man. I was just reading the script prepared by other practitioners. After I finished, he said it was fine. I asked him if he was a CCP member. He said yes. Then I helped him quit. I knew Master was encouraging me. The second call was made to an adult man. I explained everything to him for a long time. Since he spoke in a local dialect, I had to repeat many times so he could understand me. I was finally able to find out that he was a member of the Youth League. I helped him to come up with a name, and he told me his last name. I then managed to get him to quit the CCP organization as well. I can now use the telephone very proficiently to help people quit the CCP.
I once called another man and told him about quitting the CCP. I told him he should quit the CCP to secure his future. He asked why he needed to quit. I told him that all the disasters in China happened because of the CCP. If he is a member of the CCP or its associated organizations, then he is a particle of the CCP. He must denounce his oath to the CCP in order to ensure his safety. He said to me, “Great! Thank you!” I asked him what CCP organization he had joined. He said it was the Communist Youth League. I helped him to come up with a pseudonym and quit the CCP. I told him that the staged “Tiananmen Self Immolation” incident was completely fabricated by the CCP as a deception to frame Falun Gong. I also explained that Falun Dafa has spread around the world. I asked him to tell his family and friends not to participate in the persecution.
Studying the Fa and Saving People Along with Other Little Practitioners
We study the Fa for 40 minutes on the platform very day. Then we make phone calls for twenty minutes. Sometimes little practitioners encounter Chinese characters they don't know. We teach them how to say them. After Hong Yin III was published, I rushed to memorize all of it. This way, I could help the younger practitioners when they encounter characters they don’t know. Some of the practitioners did not have phone call scripts, so I provided them. When some of the little practitioners needed telephone numbers, I sent the numbers to them too. Some young practitioners needed other types of assistance, and I was glad to help them all.
We work together very well, and we read one after another. Some little practitioners are too young to read Zhuan Falun, so their parents read along with them. Some young practitioners also study dancing and how to play musical instruments. All of us use our spare time to study the Fa, because we know that Dafa practitioners must study the Fa. Nothing is more important than Fa study.
More and more young practitioners and their family members have learned the importance of truth clarification through phone calls. We young practitioners cannot take part in other projects like the the adults do, but we can make phone calls to save people. All practitioner parents in Toronto now know about our phone calling platform. Over a dozen young practitioners have come to join the effort. Practitioners from other regions have also joined us, including practitioners from the U.S. Some western practitioners have joined our Fa study to read Chinese Zhuan Falun.
On Friday night, many young practitioners go to the large group study, but our local group study is not on Friday. My dad and I study the Fa on the platform. Then after a while, some little practitioners started joining us. In the beginning, some young practitioners didn’t know how to make phone calls. When it was time for making phone calls, they would just leave the platform. But this situation has now become less and less frequent. More and more young practitioners would like to pick up the phone.
Fa study on the platform is slower than studying myself. Each time we can read only just over a dozen pages. But the platform provides a group study environment for young practitioners. Some young practitioners’ parents are very busy, so the platform makes sure they can study the Fa every day. Some young practitioners don’t want to study the Fa. The platform has made them more willing to join group study. When someone does not join the platform on time, we call them. We are one body so we need to remind each other.
There is a little practitioner who is only seven years old. He was able to help many people quit the CCP. Many everyday people we reach out to over the global platform have already heard the truth. When offered the opportunity, they often just quit. A sentient being is saved this way.
Some practitioners call us “supermen” because we have the capability to save people. We can all clarify the truth and save people. We should use the abilities Master has given to us, follow what Master has taught us, and together we will return home. We welcome all young practitioners from around the world to do the three things that are required by our Master. Because as young practitioners, we need to compare ourselves with adult practitioners—we also need to save people.
In closing, I’d like to share Master’s poem from Hong Yin III.
“Dafa disciples are saving people
Every word is compassionate, revealing sincerity
Atheism, the evil doctrine, is deceit
The Red Tide flows to the gate of Avici Hell
People in peril are crying for help
For their knowing side wants to survive
I rescue lives by spreading the truth
It’s the Divine that calls me to save people”
(“It's the Divine Saving People” from Hong Yin III)
Thank you, Master! Thank you, my fellow practitioners!
