The Power of Kindness
(Minghui.org) I have persisted in clarifying the facts about Falun Gong to people for many years no matter the weather. I have met people who have verbally insulted me or wanted to physically attack me. Under these situations, I still remained calm and collected, wanting only the best for others. Under Teacher Li's (the founder of the practice) protection, the issues were always resolved.
I once talked to a young man about the practice and encouraged him to quit his Communist Party memberships. He told me, “Stay here. Let me introduce someone to you.” He waved a security guard over and said, “Tell him the facts [too].”
I said to the security guard, “Your friend says that you are a good person. I would like to tell you that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is the Buddha law, and it is being persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The Party has struggled against nature, emphasized atheism, and caused the decline of morality in society.”
“Marxism is a malevolent spirit from the west. We Chinese have a long history and heritage. The CCP has committed a huge crime and heaven will eventually eliminate it. Why don't you quit the Party and its affiliated organizations, so you will be safe when the calamity occurs?”
The guard happily agreed. I then turned around to the young man and said, “You see that he has quit the Party. Why don't you do it too?”
“I am finding you another person [to clarify the truth to],” he replied. He called a man with a badge over. The security guard, however, tried unsuccessfully to stop the man with the badge from coming over.
I calmed down, and thought of my duty and mission in saving sentient beings. I said to the man, “They said that you are a nice guy. I would like to tell you some facts.” At the end, the man also quit the Party.
I said to the young man, “They have both quit the CCP, why don't you do it too?”He laughed and also agreed to quit.
The young man had initially intended to report me to the authorities, but with a benevolent heart, I clarified the facts and was able to resolve the tribulation. I realized that we should not have fear, but remain calm when facing danger. We should think of our mission, and inspire other's kindness with the intention to save them.
