A Teacher Tutors Students Free of Charge and Helps People Understand Dafa
(Minghui.org) Being a teacher I have tutored many students so that they will do well on their job examinations. Many of them are teachers and college students. Every one of them passed the examinations and most of them did very well. My students and their parents speak highly of me.
Unlike other teachers who charge each student at least 4,000 yuan, I do not collect money or accept gifts. I sometimes even invite them to dinner.
I believe that Master has arranged this opportunity for me to clarify the facts about the practice to predestined people and help them quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. The results have been good. They all have quit the CCP. Some of them wanted to read the book Zhuan Falun.
A Township Official Awakened
A parent of one of my students works for the township government. He tried to meet me, but I refused to see him at the beginning. I suddenly came to the understanding that Dafa is to save every predestined person and felt that Master was by my side. It was Master who sent this person to me to hear the facts about Falun Dafa. I finally agreed to meet him.
He said: “I am very happy. Because of your tutoring, my daughter scored the best in the whole city on her examination. I have not met a good teacher like you in decades.” I was calm and friendly and told him that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner and that I do things in accordance with the principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” I told him about Falun Dafa, and how it helps people physically and mentally, I spoke about the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) nature and why quitting the CCP and its affiliates is important.
His daughter interrupted: “My father wanted me to immediately join the CCP once I reported to work.” He explained: “Our nation only has one party. You won't do well at work if you are not a Party member. I know the CCP is bad, but there is no other choice!”
I replied that my Master said: 'People, do not choose the wrong direction., Curry favor with the wicked regime, and you'll be duped by demons.' (“To Choose”) . He was quiet for a little while and then made the heshi gesture (two palms together in front of the chest as a sign of respect) and said: “Dafa is really good. I take back what I said.” His daughter was pleased.
I responded: “You work for the government. You should not participate in the persecution of Falun Dafa. You and your family will be blessed if you can help stop the persecution. You will be rewarded if you can speak up for Dafa.”
He said: “I will protect Dafa and I will remember what you said.”
Indeed, Master said: “When all sentient beings treasure Dafa, they are treasuring their own lives ...” (“Definitive Conclusion” from Essentials for Further Advancement) Seeing their happy faces, I felt at ease and happy also.
A Teacher Burned Libelous Flyers
A teacher that attended a meeting this year received a derogatory picture and flyers defaming Falun Dafa during the meeting, and was asked to post them at the school. She hid the libelous materials because she did not want the students to be poisoned. I advised her to set them ablaze when she asked me what to do.
With Master's blessing, I met with teachers and leaders at ten schools. I clarified the facts about Falun Dafa and advised them to destroy the posters. I also coordinated with fellow practitioners to send forth righteous thoughts in unison to remove all that was poisoning teachers and students and to disintegrate evil factors behind the scenes.
Master said: “All that you have is that goal, that thought, but it is really the Master who takes care of it.” (Zhuan Falun) As a result, with Master's help in eliminating the evil in other dimensions, the posters in many schools were destroyed.
Not Becoming Attached Doesn't Mean to Give Up Fame and Gain
As a practitioner said, Falun Dafa requires disciples to not become attached to fame and gain. But this doesn't mean that Dafa disciples cannot achieve fame or gain. Dafa also requires disciples to not be attached to money, but this doesn't mean that all disciples have to be penniless. Dafa essentially requires disciples to give up the attachments to fame, gain, and sentimentality.
I have been invited to many schools to speak during their seminars a few times each year. I did the speech not for fame but to spread Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I always included the standards of Dafa in my teaching, depending upon the environment, attitudes, and topics.
“If we want to save people, then when we try to save them we have to be attentive to their circumstances. Don't take this for granted. (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Greater New York International Fa Conference”)
The audience was concentrated on taking notes. The site was very quiet and peaceful. I felt a strong righteous energy being emitted. I firmly believed that Master was right next to me. Otherwise, given my cultivation level, I would not be able to achieve such a field. I further realized the meaning of what Master taught us: “Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master.” (Lecture One from Zhuan Falun)
