(Clearwisdom.net) The present state of today's humankind is formed by countless tragic but magnificent historic stories that are little known to humankind.

In an era a long time ago, in the immense colossal firmament, the lords and kings of cosmic systems at different levels -- out of compassion for sentient beings and in order to attain the Fa at this moment in time when the Fa rectifies the cosmos and thereby save the beings that they represent -- fully experienced the hardships of history and endured disgrace and dishonor by coming down to the human world. Upon entering the three realms they became lost in the mortal world, and exhaustively suffered the mistreatment of low-level beings in the three realms, and in order to survive, they also created innumerable quantities of karma. Many were high lords, divine and holy Fa kings that confronted danger in the three realms and the human world, hoping to attain the Fa. Finally in this lifetime, they reincarnated in the eastern land of China at a time when Dafa is being widely spread. Their lives and futures directly affect many cosmic systems and the future of those sentient beings in the universe.

Nevertheless, from a long time ago, the old forces of the universe, out of only consideration for themselves, made plans at each level. From May of 1992 to the beginning of 1999, in these seven short years, cultivators of Falun Dafa reached one hundred million, and because the numbers were continuing to increase rapidly, in July of 1999 the evil forces began a comprehensive persecution targeting Falun Dafa. The destiny of those new students that just began practicing and many people with great inborn quality that had not yet attained the Fa took a serious turn.

"People haven't come to this human world for nothing," "Actually, people have been waiting for the Fa." (Reference 1) "All those sentient beings" that have thoroughly suffered the hardships of history and reincarnated in the land of China, from July 1999, not only because the evil old forces have obstructed them and they are not able to become Fa-rectification disciples, but due to serous poisoning from the lies spread by the evil forces, they have become hostile towards the truth of the universe, and even look upon Dafa and Dafa disciples with hatred. In Mainland China, more than a billion sentient beings have been placed in an extremely dangerous situation.

In Fa-rectification, Master treasures every single life, and silently bears the karma created from the degeneration of human beings in the course of history, painfully saving everyone that can be saved.

This time the Fa rectifies the cosmos, and it is a great event that has never occurred before in the entire history of the immense firmament. During this special period in history, the standards for measuring good and bad lives are also very unique. All lives in the cosmos are originated and created by the Fa. For an individual life, no matter how good or bad this life has been in ordinary human society, and no matter how enormous the karma it has generated, as long as this life does not damage Dafa or is able to have clear minded righteous thoughts towards Dafa in a timely manner, then this life can be rescued and in the future may even have the opportunity to be saved. But, "In the midst of the overwhelming, vicious propaganda, what those people have committed are no longer ordinary sins. Some of them are fated for destruction--regardless of where they came from, and regardless of what kind of predestined relationship they have or how high their levels were. Isn't it truly a pity for this to happen to a being?" (Reference 2)

Because of this, make the best use of time, and through every channel at various levels, use every effective method to deeply and meticulously clarify the truth to Chinese people and help Chinese people come to understand Dafa in a positive way. The significance of this is unparalleled. For all of the Fa-rectification disciples who have already been fortunate enough to attain the Fa, this has become an urgent responsibility to which we are duty-bound in our mission of helping Master in Fa-rectification.

At the same time, it is extremely important to do all of this well by rationally and wisely using methods that can be easily understood and accepted by others. This is not just an expression of Dafa disciples' compassion towards sentient beings and pure benevolent thoughts, but it also affects whether or not that life will truly be able to be saved or not.
