Buddha's Infinite Grace Encourages Me to Cultivate Even More Diligently
(Clearwisdom.net) Studying Teacher's "Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the US West Fa Conference" my heart was once again greatly shaken and my tears ran down without stopping. I could feel something in my heart that I could not express in words. I had further enlightened to what was Buddha's infinite grace, and Teacher's great mercy had once again shrouded me. Instantly, everything ranging from persecution and tribulation to imprisonment, torture and psychological suffering that I had endured over the last three years or more, disappeared. There was only one thought left in my mind: it is such a great honor to be a Fa rectification period Dafa disciple. The two characters of "Shi Fu" (Master or Teacher) gained brand new meaning in my heart. Teacher has passed on to us the Fa of the universe, and taught us to become beings with a high moral standard, able to reach the realms of Gods. We are now following the path our Teacher has shown us and scaling new heights step by step. Though there are difficulties and hardships along the way, we can be as solid and unshakeable as diamond, so that nothing can move us -- since we have Teacher and the Fa, as well as righteous thoughts and righteous actions.
Our Teacher is like a loving father who leads us forward by our hands, and gives us hints from time to time and protects us. Without the formal blessings from our Teacher none of us could have come this far today. In Teachers words,
"It was as if I scooped you out of hell back then. I have truly borne for you the sins you committed over hundreds and thousands of years. And it doesn't stop at just that. Because of this, I will also save you and turn you into Gods. I have spared no effort for you in this process. Along with this, since you'll become Gods at levels that high, I have to give you the honors of Gods at levels that high and all the blessings that you need to have at levels that high." ("Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the US West Fa Conference").
Our Teacher has done so much for us.
Fellow practitioners, let's be more diligent. Let's become worthy of the name of Fa rectification period Dafa disciples, and be tempered into real protectors of the cosmos, by living up to the great trust given by our Teacher, and the hopes centered on us by sentient beings. Strive to be diligent and do the three things well to save more sentient beings.
This is only my personal understanding. Owing to the limit of my level please kindly point out my mistakes.
