The Power of Saving Sentient Beings While Cooperating As One
(Minghui.org) I am a young practitioner who obtained the Fa in 2012. I would like to share my experience in validating the Fa with fellow practitioners.
Improving Xinxing While Distributing Materials in Universities
From Master’s recent lecture, I understood that many young people, around 25 years old, still have not been saved. Since there are many universities in our city, fellow practitioners in our Fa-study group decided to go to the universities and distribute materials in students’ residence halls.
Before we left, we would study the Fa, do the exercises and send forth righteous thoughts each time to eliminate the evil factors keeping us from saving sentient beings.
The residence halls were big, so we usually went with a partner and canvassed each hall from the top floors to the bottom. We entered the halls with dignity, placed the materials by each door, and hoped that the predestined students would realize the truth.
However, it was not all smooth sailing; I was stopped three times at one university over the course of two weekends.
During the first weekend, I was stopped twice. The first time, a building administrator came up to me, asking what I was there for and who I was looking for.
As soon as I responded “my cousin,” I regretted my words. I did not follow the principle of being truthful and did not send forth righteous thoughts.
The administrator didn't seem to believe me and asked me to call the person I was looking for from outside. In the end, I had to go to a different building.
While I was sending forth righteous thoughts before going in, I had the number “503” in my mind. As soon as I went inside, the building administrator there asked me which room I was visiting. I told him I was visiting room 503.
The administrator suddenly became curt; he said I could not go in because I was not a student. I had no choice but to back off.
I started looking inward and realized that I had unknowingly followed the old forces’ arrangement. I was the one who had conjured up the number 503, so of course I would be asked which room I was visiting. It was my own mind that caused the trouble. Cultivation is truly a serious matter.
During the second weekend, it was raining very hard. I went to the same university again. Even though I was sending righteous thoughts, my mistake from the past week still bothered me. Another practitioner encouraged me to go into one of the buildings, but I was again kept from going inside.
I suddenly realized that we were there to save sentient beings: it is our responsibility, and the old forces had no right to interfere with us. I felt inspired and went inside with the other practitioner.
Strangely enough, the administrator was nowhere to be found. We were able to distribute all of our materials without having to sneak around.
The Power of Cooperating as One Body
Several practitioners from our city were sent to a neighboring city's detention center in July of 2016. Fellow practitioners from my Fa-study group decided to go to the detention center to send forth righteous thoughts and disintegrate the evil.
The detention center was in a very remote and hidden area. We circled around several villages before we finally found the place. From the outside, it looked like a tourist resort.
We sent forth righteous thoughts and could feel the strong energy field around us. Together, we were an unbreakable entity. In that moment, we all felt immensely thankful for Master’s benevolent strengthening.
Our destination in the afternoon was the local police department. We could not find the place by following major roads, so we had to walk through the local dirt roads and through villages.
Another practitioner got out of the car to ask several children for directions; she also gave them a Falun Gong flyer, which they accepted.
“This was all arranged by Master for us to meet predestined people,” she said.
So we distributed the materials while we asked for directions. While one of us distributed materials, the others helped send forth righteous thoughts. The villagers were all very kind, and they almost all agreed to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its associated organizations immediately.
They all thanked us afterward. We told them to remember that “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
The villagers from before told us that a particular road would lead us to the police department, but also a large village. We encouraged one another to clarify the truth to the people in the large village.
Some practitioners who thought they did not do face-to-face truth clarification well helped send forth righteous thoughts. Again, we felt the strong presence of an energy field, and those of us who did clarify the truth to the villagers were very comfortable.
From the villagers, we found out that because this village was so remote, most of the people here have never even heard of Dafa or the persecution. We knew then that our coming here was Master's act of immense compassion, to give these sentient beings an opportunity to be saved.
On our way back from the police department, it was already 7 p.m. Although none of us had eaten anything the whole day, we were in high spirits. When we stopped at a small restaurant for dinner, we gave the other diners some of our truth-clarification materials.
When asked if any of them had joined the CCP and its organizations, one young man said, “I was just wondering how I could quit!”
When we shared our thoughts on our way back, one of the other practitioners said that, even though she was usually not confident enough to clarify the truth, she was able to give strangers the flyers. The other practitioner said that she did not feel comfortable distributing materials, but she could clarify the truth face-to-face; she added that she thought they made a good team.
We originally planned to go send forth righteous thoughts next to the detention center only, but it turned out that Master had arranged for us to clarify the truth to those remote villagers, too. In the process, we all truly felt the state of cooperating as a whole, as well as Master’s immense benevolence and wisdom. That day, we all let go of our usual attachment to self. The responsibility of saving more sentient beings encouraged us all. We were overjoyed to see these sentient beings be saved.
Fellow practitioners, no matter how hard it is to clarify the truth face-to-face, Master will help us do it if we have a pure heart. I seldom clarified the truth face-to-face in the past, but in the future, I will break through my human notions to save more sentient beings this way.
