Doing My Best to Save People Amid the CCP Virus Outbreak
(Minghui.org) I'm a retiree in my 70s. I have been cultivating in Falun Dafa for over twenty years now, and have been actively engaging in truth clarification with the help of fellow practitioners. I would like to share some of my recent experiences amid the CCP Virus outbreak (the Chinese Communist Party Virus, or COVID-19).
Helping a Friend and Her Family
The CCP Virus started spreading rapidly from Wuhan around the Chinese New Year and everyone was frightened and did not know what to do.
In the face of an imminent lockdown, I prepared a package of truth-clarification materials and took them to a friend by taxi. I was very pleased to be able to give her the package and help her and the taxi driver quit the CCP organizations as well.
My friend told me that her son (in his 30s) had been coughing for a few days and was very worried that he might have contracted the virus because he had been in close contact with some foremen from out of town.
His condition lasted for over ten days and kept worsening, with chills and tightness in the chest.
He was exhausted both physically and mentally. Fearing that he might be fined for not reporting his symptoms, he packed a bag and planned to go to a hospital for quarantine.
My friend didn't know what to do. She was worried that her son might die if he was not treated, but at the same time, she was thinking that her son might be just fighting off a flu and might get infected with the virus if he did go to the hospital. Her whole family were in a panic and didn't know what to do.
“I must help them,” I thought to myself.
I called my friend and told her some stories of how the two precious phrases “Falun Dafa is good,” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” have helped people in desperate situations and brought them back from the verge of death amid the virus epidemic.
“Please tell your son to recite the two phrases with sincerity,” I said to my friend.
“I will, thank you so much!”
She sent me a message the next day, saying that her son felt much better when he woke up in the morning.
Over the next few days, he kept reciting the two phrases. Gradually, the symptoms disappeared. My friend kept thanking me for telling them the way to stay safe.
A week ago, my friend suffered a tooth infection, which caused her severe headaches. She took some painkillers, without any effect. There was no way she could get treatment because hospitals were overcrowded with virus patients and weren't taking regular patients.
“I can’t do anything, but cope with the pain,” she said helplessly.
“Don't get too upset,” I comforted her. “You can also recite the two precious phrases from your heart.”
“Oh, yes. You're right!” she was delighted upon hearing that.
She called me the next day and told me that her headache was much relieved. She kept saying, “Falun Dafa is truly good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is truly good!”
Consider Others First
I managed to purchase 500 face masks, and sent most of them to my friends, leaving only a few for my own family. When they learned what I did, they were very touched.
Master told us,
“I also want to tell you that your nature in the past was actually based on egotism and selfishness. From now on, whatever you do, you should consider others first, so as to attain the righteous Enlightenment of selflessness and altruism. So from now on, whatever you do or whatever you say, you must consider others—or even future generations—along with Dafa’s eternal stability.” (“Non-Omission in Buddha-Nature,” Essentials for Further Advancement)
I have been doing my best to save people since the early days of the virus outbreak, by making truth-clarification materials, telling people about the two precious phrases and the various ways to quit the CCP organizations, etc. I also made many amulets and carry them with me wherever I go so that I can give them to people I come across.
It is our mission to assist Master in Fa rectification and save sentient beings. I'm determined to fulfill my pledge, cultivate myself well and save more people.
