Standing Up for Dafa with Master’s Protection
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998 and have greatly benefited from it, both physically and mentally. So, when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners in July 1999, I knew I had to stand up for Dafa and let people know the truth about the practice.
How to Help People Learn about Dafa
I clarified the truth to people face to face, made phone calls, posted articles on microblogs, and put up posters on the street. I also started my own materials production site and printed truth-clarification brochures, burned DVDs, and made Dafa keepsakes.
I was delivering materials in my neighborhood one time and approached a three-story building in which the door on the third floor stairwell was always locked. I saw a cleaning crew opening the door ahead of me and quickened my pace to catch them up. Just as I reached the door, it closed behind them.
My heart sank, and my head dropped. I had been trying to get to this floor for some time.
One of the janitors saw me and said the door was unlocked. I knew that Master was helping me, and I was able to deliver materials to each apartment on that floor.
Removing Banners Slandering Falun Dafa
I passed by a banner hanging next to a building in 2015 and wanted to remove it, as it was slandering Falun Dafa. However, it was in a busy commercial area covered by many security cameras. Across the street was the front gate of an army unit, and beside it was a college. There were always at least two police cars parked nearby.
Aftera long think at home about what to do, I decided to take down the banner so that it would no longer mislead people and incite hatred against Dafa. On the bus ride to that location, I sent righteous thoughts and asked for Master’s help.
When I arrived, there were lots of people walking around. A man seemed to follow me, but I knew that I was doing the most righteous thing and that no one was allowed to interfere.
“All beings in the cosmos are repositioning themselves. Humans aren’t worthy of testing this Fa, and neither are Gods. Whoever touches it commits a sin.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Great Lakes Fa Conference in North America,” Guiding the Voyage)
While walking toward the banner, I recited Master’s teachings and sent forth righteous thoughts. There were many people in the area, and the man was still following me. I calmed down and focused on sending righteous thoughts. Suddenly, it became very quiet. The traffic, the crowd, and the man were gone. I quickly tore down the banner and left.
I am grateful to Master for protecting me.
Two years after that incident, I noticed banners slandering Dafa reappear in that same location. I knew that I needed to take them down.
I was pleased to see that it was raining heavily that day after dinner, as it would help me not be seen. I again sent righteous thoughts on the bus ride there. But the rain stopped before I arrived. I quickly looked within and found numerous attachments, such as being zealous and showing off, as I had done this successfully before. I hadn't put saving people as my first priority. I quickly rejected these notions since they were not mine, and I held the thought that I was doing it to save people.
By the time I reached my destination, it was raining again and I was able to take down the banners without anyone seeing me.
The banners appeared again in July 2017 and were much bigger. I discussed the issue with fellow practitioners. They told me to be careful as there were numerous security cameras and police patrols in the area.
I bought a can of spray paint similar in color to that of the walls nearby. They day I went there was July 20, 2017. I sent righteous thoughts the entire way and recited Master's teaching:
“Dafa is what you carry everywhere,Zhen Shan Ren, rooted in the mind;A great Arhat walks the earth,Gods and demons fear with awe.” (“Benevolent Might,” Hong Yin)
With Master watching over me, I successfully sprayed over the banner and made it blend nicely with the wall behind it.
Over the years, I have destroyed over 30 banners slandering Falun Dafa and thus prevented many people from being harmed by them.
Shedding Karma in an Accident
As I walked out of my mother's residential block in March 2018, a black Jeep made a quick turn, and its side mirror hit the left side of my chest. My rib cage vibrated from the impact, but I stood still and unmoved, as if nothing had happened.
“Actually, don’t think that nothing happened to you after being hit—a you, made up of karma, really died. What’s more, that body had thoughts, a heart, and limbs that were made up of your bad karma; it died in the accident, and it was composed entirely of karma. We’ve done such a tremendous good thing for you, and have removed such a huge amount of karma and paid for lives with it—no one else does this. We do this only because you’re able to practice cultivation. When you realize this you will have no way to thank me.” (“Teaching the Fa at a New York Meeting,” Lectures in the United States)
I understood that compassionate Master had protected me while at the same time allowing a portion of my karma to be eliminated.
The driver was in shock. I told him not to worry and that I practiced Falun Dafa and was protected by my master. I told him about Dafa and the persecution, but he drove away before I had a chance to help him quit the CCP.
I feel sad that I couldn’t him him quit the Party, but I hope that he has a chance to meet another practitioner and choose a bright future.
I want to thank Master for saving me, for his compassion, and for watching over me. I will do the three things diligently and fulfill my prehistoric vows.
