A New Practitioner Clarifies the Facts and Keeps Up with Fa-rectification
(Minghui.org) Greetings to revered Master and fellow practitioners!
I am a practitioner from Kaohsiung. I was introduced to Falun Dafa in October 2011. I am fortunate to have become a practitioner and I feel honored to be able to be here during this sacred time and place to report my experiences over the past two years.
Finding Falun Dafa
I was born into a religious family and liked to go to temples when I was little. I believed in gods and Buddhas.
As I grew older, life to me was a sea of bitterness. To escape reincarnation, I knew that in past lifetimes I cultivated in many sects but none of them was what I was looking for. With the help of a fellow practitioner, I finally learned Falun Dafa and found the way to return to my true self. After I attended the nine-day lecture class, my physical changes were amazing. My questions about the purpose of life were answered.
Master’s Hints in My Dreams
Many times Master gave me hints in my dreams. The first time, I saw a big ship near the shore and many practitioners got on it. When it was my turn to jump onto the ship, I hesitated and worried that I might fall into the sea. The ship sailed off without me, and I cried.
In the second dream I saw a ship again. This time, I hurried and even rode my scooter onto the stairs by the shore. However, when I got to the shore, the ship sailed off again without me.
After I read Master’s lecture,
“Of course, as for what I'm doing now, if there are new students who obtain the Fa, they're very likely to become the mainstay, the elite, of the next group of people who'll obtain the Fa.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Great Lakes Fa Conference in North America,” Guiding the Voyage)
I had a strong thought: I don’t want to be “the next group of people.” I wanted to go home with Master this time.
I had a third dream. I was looking for a job on an enormous ship. There were many levels in the ship and I took an elevator up. When the elevator door opened, I saw so many people from all races. They wore the same style of clothing but in different colors. The girls wore silk dresses and high heels. Everyone looked young and elegant. They were all busy doing something. I, on the other hand, wore shabby clothes that in no way matched theirs. After I read more of Master’s lectures, I believed that Master wanted me to work on the Fa Boat and catch up with the progress of Fa-rectification.
Talking to Chinese Tourists about Falun Gong at Tourist Attractions
I decided to do well the three things that Master asked us to do. Master said in "20th Anniversary Fa Teaching,"
“I have told you before that today’s Chinese people were once the Kings of the many ethnicities known to history, the Kings of each era; they are Kings of higher planes in the cosmos who have come down to earth, who’ve reincarnated in China. Their salvation will result in the salvation of the countless sentient beings behind them whom they represent.”
I decided to clarify the truth at a tourist attraction in Xiziwan. At first when I saw so many Chinese tourists, I dared not open my mouth. Later a practitioner took me to Liuhe Night Market. Seeing how eagerly other practitioners worked to save people, I was really moved. Through studying the Fa, my fear gradually went away and I began to talk to people. There were always two kinds of people: Some were friendly and nice as if they were waiting for you to help them quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations, while others were indifferent and inpatient. They ignored me or even yelled at me.
I learned that if I looked at them with pure and righteous eyes, if I spoke to them with compassion and good will, most of them melted, and those who were kind with a predestined relationship could be saved. Of course a large number of them wouldn’t listen because they had been brainwashed by the CCP. I felt sorry for them and welcomed them to Taiwan. I asked them to try to understand Falun Gong and hoped that they could quit the CCP at their next stop and choose a good future.
One day I met a young man from China. He barely looked at me and asked me unpleasantly if I was Japanese. I told him I was Taiwanese. He was drinking and smoking while I patiently told him the facts about Falun Gong. I asked him to quit the CCP that killed 80 million of his countrymen. I kept reminding myself that I shouldn’t be affected by his attitude and that I must have a pure heart wanting only to save him. To my surprise, he eventually agreed to quit! That night, I realized that the Chinese hated the Japanese because they slaughtered 300 thousand Chinese in Nanjing during the war. The CCP has killed 80 million Chinese. He heard the truth because my heart was pure.
One time I had a runny nose and I was worried that I couldn’t speak properly. I eventually decided to go anyway. When I got to the tourist attraction, my nose stopped running.
Every day I exercise in the morning, study the Fa for two hours in the afternoon, and at night go to the night market to clarify the truth. After I finish at 9:00 p.m., I study Zhuan Falun with other practitioners. I get home around midnight every day, and my heart is peaceful and fulfilled. I feel so happy immersed in Master’s grace. I want to save more people each time I see the happy faces of those who have understood.
My mother couldn’t accept the changes in my routine. One day when I was heading out, my mother got upset and said something disrespectful about Dafa. I felt terrible but I decided that I must go and clarify the truth.
The next day I came downstairs and found my mother listening to Master’s lecture. I was surprised. She told me that, last night my father saw Master coming in the window to heal him. I was so touched. Master was suffering for my family, too. My mother’s voice was hoarse. I told her that it was because she said disrespectful things against Dafa yesterday. She apologized and immediately her throat was fine.
Clarifying the Truth in Hong Kong
I realized the importance of Hong Kong in the role of truth clarification. It is the main battlefield between good and evil. I have been to Hong Kong ten times since June 2012. Each trip helped me improve my xinxing. In October 2012, I went to Hung Hom, because the evil there was unchecked and practitioners manned our truth clarification site 24 hours a day. One night I studied the Fa with practitioners at the site and the CCP gangs surrounded us. They laid down slanderous banners around us and threatened that they would make us step on the banners with Master’s name on them before we could leave.
Practitioners from Taiwan sent righteous thoughts while Hong Kong practitioners reasoned with the gangs and asked the police for assistance. The police said nothing. That night the shouting of the evil thugs and the voices of practitioners standing up for Falun Dafa were loud and clear. I believed all gods in the universe were watching this battle between good and evil. Finally, at 5:00 a.m. when people started showing up at the station, the CCP thugs unwillingly took away a banner to let us out.
One night a Hong Kong practitioner and I were on duty at the site. I fell asleep, and when I woke up at 4:00 a.m., the street was so empty that I couldn’t find a place to stay warm. I was cold and hungry, alone in a foreign country, looking like a wanderer. But my heart was unusually warm because I was carrying out my vows.
I went to Hong Kong for a parade on November 25 and heard a practitioner say, “There are so many CCP thugs in Hong Kong and more practitioners from Taiwan should come and help.” I felt really sad.
“When other people attack Dafa, if you feel that they’re not attacking you, then you are not a member of Dafa. Why is it that so many people went to Beijing to petition the State Council at Zhongnanhai? It felt to them as if the affair in Tianjin city targeted them. They felt that when the police were arresting Dafa disciples, it was the same as they themselves being arrested.” ("Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia")
Recently I became the coordinator in helping local practitioners go to Hong Kong to clarify the truth. I am honored to have this opportunity to help.
I went to Hong Kong with five practitioners again this past October. This time I was able to help more than 100 people quit the CCP organizations in one day. Thanks to practitioners in Hong Kong, most tour guides are friendly towards Falun Gong. Sometimes they even ask us to help the Chinese tourists quit the CCP. As a result, many tourists openly say they wish to quit. The Hong Kong practitioner I worked with sometimes helped over 200 people quit the CCP. Still, I believe that more people should go to Hong Kong to help because there are so many people waiting to hear the truth and need help to quit the CCP.
“There is an increasing number of tourist groups from mainland China nowadays. This is an arrangement for people to hear the truth in a different setting. Our truth-clarification sites are, in fact, the front line—the front line for clarifying the truth.” ("Fa Teaching at the 2013 Western U.S. Fa Conference")
The above are my experiences over the past two years. Please point out anything inappropriate.
Thank you, Master! Thank you, fellow practitioners!
