[Selected Submission] Little Practitioner Helps a Bully Correct His Behavior
(Minghui.org) Greetings to Master!
My name is Dongdong, and I'm a young Falun Gong practitioner. May 13, 2012 was the 20th anniversary of when Master started to spread the Fa. Here I'm going to tell several stories about my cultivation and my appreciation of Master's mercy.
1. Predestined relationship with the Fa
I have been living with my grandpa since I was little. My grandpa is a Falun Gong practitioner. I often read Zhuan Falun after school. I still remember the first time I saw Master's picture, it was like seeing someone from my family who had been away for a long time. I cheered, “Master, you are my Master. I know you. You taught me how to do the exercises!”
I love to listen to the exercise music, Master's lectures, watch the video where Master teaches the exercises, and read Master's poems. I can recite Hong Yin I and II and parts of Essentials for Further Advancement. I never fight with my classmates at school; therefore, my teacher asked me to help with the bully, who was a big headache for the class. I told grandpa about it. He was worried and said, “Even your teacher couldn't deal with him, can you do it?” I replied, “Master told us to be good according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. If no one will help him, won't he get worse and worse?” Grandpa heard this and supported me. Whenever I had free time, I played with that bully, and always shared my food with him. Soon we became good friends. Later, I told him about Falun Dafa and how him to be a good person, do good things and not to beat others. Soon, the bully changed a lot. Those classmates who hated him and were scared of him were willing to play with him again.
2. Telling my teachers about Dafa
Once, one of the teachers at my school broke his leg. My teacher brought the whole class to visit him at the hospital. After they left, I asked the teacher, “Does it hurt?” He said, “Yes!” I told him, “I have a secret: sincerely recite 'Falun Dafa is Good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are good.' That will stop the pain, and you will recover very soon.” I also recited to him several poems from Hong Yin I and II, and this teacher wrote them down.
The second day, the teacher came back to school and told me, “Dongdong, it worked! After I said 'Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are good!', my pain disappeared. Thus, I removed the bandage and I can walk as usual. Thank you very much!”
3. Flag flies away
Whenever it was the flag raising time at school, I always tried to find an excuse to avoid it. Before the flag time, I asked to go to the restroom. Later, my teacher noticed this and didn't allow me to leave any more.
What was I to do? I told my classmates, from now on, when the flag time is coming, we all say, “It can't be raised, the rope breaks.”
One cold day, it was very windy. My whole class said those words again and it worked. The rope broke and the flag flew away with the wind. The school was in a panic. All my classmates cheered and clapped and ran back to the classroom. Later, my teacher said angrily that our class was the worst during flag time and the principal decided that we should never attend the flag raising again.
4. Exposing the Tiananmen Square Self-immolation
I watched the video “False fire” at home, which exposed the lies told by the communist party, and how they framed Falun Gong. I also clarified the truth to my classmates, and most of them knew the truth.
One day, my teacher said we were going to watch a science movie. However, it was the movie of the “Tiananmen square self-immolation”, which was framing Falun Dafa. I refused to watch, and instead, I brought out a book and crossed out Jiang's picture. I passed it to my classmates and they followed my example. Most of my classmates crossed out Jiang's picture in their books.
After class, I threw my red scarf from the building and others followed. We all said loudly, “The Tiananmen square self-immolation is a fake. It was made to frame Falun Gong. It was acting!” Later, my grandpa asked the teacher where she got the video and she said it was from a government agency. Grandpa asked if she would play it again, and she said no, there's no point in playing it again because even the kids know it is a fake.
There are more stories like these, and I will study the Fa better from now on in order to save more people and to return back home with Master.
