Studying the Fa Well Helps Us Save Sentient Beings
(Minghui.org) I know that good Fa-study truly helps Falun Dafa practitioners in their cultivation, but I didn't have a deep understanding of this until recently. I would like to share the following experience about making phone calls to China.
Many Chinese have been deceived by the hate propaganda portrayed in China’s state-run media, so I recently joined other Dafa practitioners in making phone calls to China. We tell people the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution, and ask them to renounce their memberships in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
The first day I took part in this project I sent forth righteous thoughts for about 20 minutes before making phone calls. However, when I began calling China, the recipients hung up on me one after another. After two hours had passed, only two people had agreed to quit the CCP.
The next day, I did the same thing. I studied the Fa, sent forth righteous thoughts, then made the phone calls. I also listened to calls made by other practitioners to see how they did it, and I kept sending forth righteous thoughts throughout my calls. Although I felt good, the outcome was not so good. Two hours passed, and only one person agreed to quit the Party.
The third day was similar. I sent forth righteous thoughts in advance, but when I made the calls, hardly anyone was willing to listen. Only one person quit the CCP in two hours. I was very upset, since other practitioners were doing much better than me.
When I discussed this with another practitioner, she joked, “At least you try every day, just like the others.” Yes. I was making calls just like the others, but the results were different. What was I doing wrong?
The situation did not improve on the fourth day. Although I studied the Fa, sent forth righteous thoughts, and called China as usual, no one agreed to quit the CCP. I felt very bad.
On the fifth day, I had many chores to do in the morning, and went to make phone calls when I had a break in the afternoon. I hadn't studied the Fa yet, so I calmed down and read Zhuan Falun.
I didn't know why, but that day's Fa study was very good and my mind was focused. Although I read less than 20 pages before making the phone calls, I knew that day's Fa-study was much better than the previous days.
As I began to speak over the phone, I felt that my words had energy and my righteous thoughts were strong. I knew that this was the result of good Fa study.
Five people decided to quit the CCP that day. A practitioner who often helped me said, “Well done. Please keep it up.”
From this, I learned the importance of good Fa study. I can now help around ten people to quit the CCP each day, and sometimes it can be 15 or 16 people.
This is my experience regarding the importance of studying the Fa well. Master has talked about this many times, but I have not understood it until now.
