Thoughts on Calling for Submissions to Commemorate World Falun Dafa Day

March 13, 2021 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Anhui Province, China

(Minghui.org) I am a teacher. After Minghui.org published “Notice: Call for Submissions to Commemorate World Falun Dafa Day 2021” in early March 2021, one of my family members, who is also a Falun Dafa practitioner, told me that she was anxious. She wanted to submit a sharing but did not know what to write. We talked about it and I would like to share my understanding here. 

Importance of Submission from Cultivation Perspective

Minghui.org has been publishing an annual notice to call for articles to commemorate World Falun Dafa Day for many years. Each year, many Dafa disciples have actively participated by sharing their experiences and the beauty of Dafa. As Master's disciple, everyone knows the preciousness of cultivation. But there also been disciples who paid no attention to the notice or who did not know what or how to write.

Master told us:

“As a cultivatorOne always looks for one’s own faults’Tis the Way to get rid of attachments most effectivelyThere’s no way to skip ordeals, big or small[During a conflict, if you can remember:]“He’s right,And I’m wrong,”What’s to dispute?”(“Who’s Right, Who’s Wrong,” Hong Yin III)

I enlightened that the annual call for papers is like a test of our personal cultivation. Every Dafa disciple should actively participate in the exam and submit answers of his or her cultivation. We should realize its importance from the cultivation perspective, actively participate in it, and dare to take the test. Isn’t it an attachment if we do not care about the annual exam or are afraid of it? Minghui.org presents us with the requirements and the time of the exam, and we should cherish the exceptional opportunity.

Calling for Submission Is Also Necessary for Saving People

Master told us:

“The human world is now at the end of its latter days, and the degenerate and chaotic things that have come about in these troubled times are affecting society more than ever.” (“Greetings to the Taiwan Fa Conference,” Team Yellow Translation)

“Dafa disciples are now sentient beings’ only, sole hope for salvation.” (“Righteous Thoughts,” The Essentials Of Diligent Progress Vol. III)

In the current chaotic world, there are still many sentient beings in need of salvation. During the annual submissions, many practitioners wrote about their experiences so that people were awakened and came to appreciate the beauty and boundless power of Dafa.

Some practitioners may say that they don't know how to write. In fact the notice on Minghui.org clearly writes:

“During this eventful, dharma-ending era, we are facing an intense battle between good and evil, in which Dafa disciples are the hope for people to be saved. Every practitioner who cultivates solidly would have many good stories in daily life, at work, and during the fulfillment of his or her mission. These stories have recorded how kindness has changed our lives and uplifted our minds. Even though some incidents may seem trivial, they are testimonies of how cultivation in Dafa has improved our morality, mind and body, along with our wisdom and capabilities. By sharing these experiences in language that is easy to understand, we would cherish the cultivation opportunities even more, and remind ourselves to remain diligent just like when we first started to cultivate. This would also help more people to see what Dafa is and align them with “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

Every Dafa disciple experiences the wonderfulness of Dafa and is under Master's compassionate protection. Each of us has our own feelings and inspiration. As long as we follow the requirements to write our sharing and publish them on the Minghui website, more sentient beings will be saved. At this chaotic time along with the pandemic, let us all pick up our pens and share with the world our thoughts and enlightenment in Dafa, and make use of every opportunity to save more people.

The above is my personal understanding. Please point out anything inappropriate.
