Cultivation Experience of a Young Falun Dafa Practitioner
(Minghui.org) I am fortunate to have grown up in a family that practices Falun Dafa, and I have benefited greatly from it.
Elementary School: Event to Slander Dafa Foiled
When I was in the third grade, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) forced elementary school students to enter a general knowledge competition. Unfortunately, it was an effort to slander Dafa. The teacher wrote the answers on the board and said that whoever copied them would get full marks, a prize, and a certificate.
My classmates were eager to get started, but I stood up and said, “Teacher, this is deceitful, and many of the answers are outright lies.”
Many students then noticed that there were questions about Falun Dafa and whispered to each other about it. The teacher lost control of the situation and said impatiently, “Those who want to enter the competition, copy the answers. If not, just do your homework.”
Only three students entered the competition, but none of them got full marks. Not long after, chickenpox broke out in the school. Only three students in our class got it--the three who copied the slanderous messages against Falun Dafa.
Middle School: Explaining Quitting the CCP
When I was in middle school, there was a chapter in the moral education textbook that slandered Dafa. When we came to that chapter, the teacher simply skipped it. She even said, “Why on earth should we teach kids lies?!”
I was so glad that my teacher had seen through the CCP's lies and refused to follow it blindly.
While I was in middle school, although I often told others about Falun Dafa, I did not have the courage to urge them to renounce their membership in the CCP organizations.
At a party with a few good friends, I finally got up the courage to talk about the movement to quit the CCP. To my surprise, they had already quit the Youth League and the Young Pioneers, two organizations affiliated with the CCP, during vacation. However, they needed more information.
I explained in detail about the staged Tiananmen Self-Immolation and the significance of quitting the CCP organizations. I also taught them how to download software to break through the Internet blockade and read information published outside of China.
High School: Bypassing the Chinese Internet Blockade
In high school, I realized that my classmates understood some things about Dafa, but were still heavily influenced by the CCP's lies. When I found the software to break through the Chinese firewall on a school computer, I visited a Dafa truth clarification website.
Many students crowded around me to look at my screen. They later found out how to install such software and researched Dafa. They even told fellow schoolmates about it.
One student got a yuan bill in change that had the software code needed to break through the firewall written on it. I said, “That is a good thing. You can use your phone to visit sites from other countries. You can log into Facebook and Twitter and read news that has been otherwise censored.”
The bill got passed from one student to another, and many with mobile phones downloaded the software.
In one political science class, the lesson for the day was slander about Falun Dafa. When the image of the Tiananmen self-immolation was shown, I hesitated but then decided to speak up.
However, before I could open my mouth, someone else piped up, “Teacher, someone said that was fake.” The teacher stood silent for a few seconds and then asked, “Class, do you believe it?” The class answered that they knew it was fake. The teacher glanced at us and decided to skip that portion.
After cultivating in Dafa for 16 years, I have benefited greatly. It is not difficult for me to discern the despicable methods the evil CCP has adopted to brainwash teachers and students.
I want to tell teachers and students who are still deceived that the CCP's slander about Dafa is full of loopholes. If you listen carefully to what Falun Dafa practitioners tell you and think for yourself, you will be able to distinguish what are lies and what is the truth.
