Dafa is Urgently Urging Me to Save People
(Minghui.org) I am 73 years old this year. I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1996, becoming a Dafa disciple during the Fa-rectification period. Under Master's compassionate and merciful care, I am here today because I follow the principles of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." Without the Fa I would not know the real meaning of being a human being. Master taught us, "The only thing you have a role in is saving people..." ("Teaching the Fa in the City of Chicago") This is Master's expectation and a strict requirement of his disciples. Therefore,we must do our best to save more sentient beings with predestined relationships. Only then can we fulfill the requirement of Fa-rectification and truly set Master’s mind at ease. We can then, "…Reaching Consummation, returning with Master." (“Predestiny Leads Back to Sacred Fruit” from Hong Yin)
Over the years, regardless of the weather, be it wind or rain, sultry summer heat or freezing winter cold, the first thing on my mind every day is going out with a "truth-clarifying pack" on my back and spreading the blessings of Dafa. I go to the cities, streets, malls, construction sites, parks, small districts, and wherever there are people. The reason I do this is to help the people who have a predestined relationship break away from being poisoned by the lies of the wicked Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It gives them a chance to make a reasonable choice in time to be saved. I don't know how to ride a bike. To solve the logistical problems of getting Dafa informational materials to remote rural areas, I persistently devoted a certain period of time to delivering truth-clarifying pamphlets, CD-ROMs, and the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party on foot to those areas. I have worn out many pairs of shoes. However, it did not bother me at all because the only pure thought in my mind was to save sentient beings. Whenever I leave home, I know that I have calmly studied the Fa and sent forth powerful righteous thoughts in advance. Because I am steadfast, I almost always clarify the truth smoothly.
In the course of saving people, I have witnessed more than once the eagerness and desire that comes from wanting to be saved. I have seen the joy and delight that comes from deep inside a person after being saved and the blessings that come to them. Some of them have even began firmly practicing Dafa. I would like to share with fellow practitioners some of the true stories from my truth-clarifying journey.
One Elder on the Roadside Said, "I am waiting for you!"
One morning, I went out and I was carrying my "truth-clarifying pack." I sent forth righteous thoughts while I was walking. All of a sudden I saw an elderly man standing along the roadside looking in my direction as if he were looking forward to seeing a long-awaited family member. I went straight to him and said only a few words when he started to say, "I'm waiting for you! I've waited here for several days just so that I could learn the truth about Falun Dafa!"
A few days earlier, a stranger told him, "As long as you wait here patiently, someone will come to tell you what you most want to know." He waited there day after day for the arrival of the "mysterious person." I was very pleased to hear this and knew that Master had arranged it. Thank you, Master!
I said to him, "Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, teaches people how to be good and compassionate. We must be good people and live according to the principles of 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Through the teachings we become sincere, kind, tolerant, light, happy, and physically and mentally healthy. It is a teaching with great virtue that is now practiced in 100 countries and regions around the world." I then detailed the evil nature of the CCP, and the cruel persecution of Dafa practitioners. In particular, I told him about the brutal crime of organ harvesting from living practitioners for profit. I mentioned the mysterious stone with hidden Chinese characters, and said that Heaven will surely eliminate the CCP.
The old man listened to me attentively and nodded his head repeatedly to express his approval. When I took out some materials from my "truth-clarifying pack" and gave them to him, he held his hands together in an expression of appreciation. It was as if he wanted to kneel down because he kept saying "thank you" with tears in his eyes. I hurriedly said, "My friend, don't thank me. It is Master who wants me to save you. It is Master Li Hongzhi who you should thank!"
Contractor: "Please help me withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations now!"
On one occasion, I went to a construction site. The first person I encountered was the contractor. I called him "big brother" and told him that I was bringing him a treasure that could turn peril into safety. As I was going into detail explaining Falun Dafa, he stopped me abruptly and sullenly said, "Do you know where you are? This is the CCP members’ site. You are not allowed to speak here as you wish." I was unmoved and kept talking, "My brother, I sincerely hope you learn the truth about Falun Dafa. Only by knowing the truth can you, having been lost in delusion, tell right from wrong and good from evil. Only by keeping in mind 'Falun Dafa is good' will you be able to break away from the deceptions of the CCP and avoid its evil influence. Then the Gods and Buddhas will certainly give you a way out and help you get through the imminent catastrophe that will be right before your eyes. You will have a bright future. I will come to you if I have a chance and I am here today for your higher good."
After speaking to the contractor, I continued to take advantage of the opportunity to talk with the migrant workers at the site to tell them the truth, give them the Nine Commentaries, and persuade them to do the three withdrawals (withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliated organizations). I sprinkled "golden seeds" of compassion, and the results were good. Many of them gladly did the three withdrawals. The overall environment of the construction site was purified.
A few days later, I went back to the site because the contractor still did not understand the truth and I had to save him. On the way, I sent forth righteous thoughts specifically for him and asked Master to strengthen me. As soon as the contractor saw me, he immediately ran over to me. He was a completely different person. He said to me with a smile, "Auntie, I talked with many of the workers and also read the truth-clarifying materials you gave them. I now completely understand the truth. It is nonsense to have 'a CCP members’ site'. I don't believe this evil thing!" Then he said solemnly, "I am also a member of the evil CCP, please help me withdraw from the CCP now!"
At that moment, I realized that the Buddha’s infinite grace was truly everywhere. I immediately congratulated him on his choice for a better future and said, "Brother, I am truly happy for you. There are more than 110 million people around the world who have withdrawn from the wicked CCP and its affiliated organizations. It is wonderful for you to abide by heavenly principles and obtain blessings!" He accepted the Nine Commentaries I gave him and kept saying, "Thank you."
Young Worker at a Construction Site: "The amulet saved my life!"
I then went to a different construction site to clarify the truth. I chatted with a young worker and we hit it off. After telling him the truth and helping him to do the three withdrawals, I took out an amulet (1) and gave it to him. I emphasized that the amulet was not an ordinary token but a real life-saving Fa-implement. He was very pleased and immediately hung the amulet around his neck.
A few days later, I passed by the site by chance and the young worker called me from far away. He said enthusiastically, "Auntie, the amulet saved my life! I sincerely thank you for saving my life!" He then told me the following experience:
"One day while we were working on a metal pipe several meters long and six or seven inches wide, it rolled down from a truck on to my chest. I passed out right away. I fell down and lay on the ground motionless. The onlookers were all astonished and frightened. Everyone thought that something bad would be the outcome. One of the workers who was very afraid, approached me and tried to help me to my feet. Unexpectedly, my body wavered and I looked around curiously. The only thing that I noticed was the amulet around my neck. I stood up by myself. I subconsciously touched my chest and felt no pain. My fellow workers approached me. When I regained my composure, I suddenly realized what had really happened. There was no doubt in my mind that I was saved by Falun Dafa! As the metal pipe fell on my chest, it felt like there was a layer of sponge on my chest. It was thick and soft, and I didn't feel any pain when the pipe hit me. Nothing else could protect me except the extraordinary power of the amulet. It was God protecting me!"
I said with smile, "Now you know what I mean. Why do the heavens have concern for you when you are in danger? Because you respectfully hung the amulet around your neck and sincerely recited the words, 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance is good' on the amulet. It is because Falun Dafa is The Buddha Fa. When the Falun Buddha Law is slandered by the demons of the world, you were able keep your conscience, tell right from wrong, and preserve the most, most precious thought."
My remarks deeply touched the young man's heart, and the other migrant workers who were listening. All of them reached out to take the amulets and the truth-clarifying materials. Many even asked me to help them do the three withdrawals right on the spot.
"Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in spring
Righteous thoughts can save the people in this world."
("The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos" from Hong Yin II)
For thirteen years, the mighty power of compassion and righteous thought has been repeatedly reinforced by the efforts of Dafa disciples. We are helping Master in Fa-rectification to save the world's people. As the situation dramatically changes, Dafa disciples should become even more clearheaded. Practitioners absolutely should not get involved in politics. We must try our best to do everything well and truly do the three things well. At the same time, we should urgently save people by helping them to understand the truth as soon as possible and find their true selves!
If I have said anything inappropriate, please kindly point it out to me.
(1) In China, practitioners sometimes clarify the truth by giving people something small to wear or cherish, bearing a few words reminding them of the goodness of Dafa.
