(Minghui.org) By studying Master’s teachings in recent years, I’ve realized that many fellow practitioners outside of China do not value Minghui. Today, after reading the article “Is Minghui Merely a Free Resource?” I realized that the root cause of the problem may be deeper.
I would like to discuss this issue from two perspectives:
The first is that some practitioners do not value the Minghui website because they think that other media outlets cover topics of ordinary people, but Minghui focuses on Falun Dafa cultivation and its persecution by the Chinese Communist Party. Such practitioners believe that non-cultivators might not be interested in the content on Minghui.
The second thing that article mentions is that some media take Minghui for granted and cite its content without properly crediting the source when even ordinary journalism ethics call for giving credit to sources cited.
I would like to add my two cents. Most of the practitioners who run media channels should at least think of themselves as cultivators. If so, their answer to why they are running their media channels may well be the same, that is, to save people.
How to save people during the Fa-rectification period? My understanding is that only by delivering people to the new cosmos are they truly saved. As such, those practitioners should be more aware of the importance of Minghui: the Minghui website is an online representation of Dafa disciples as a whole; Master publishes new lectures only on Minghui; and Minghui has exclusive first-hand information about Dafa disciples around the world, especially in China.
Master told us:
“In the future there will then be many experts and scholars whose wisdom will be broadened through the Buddha Fa. They will become the new mankind’s pioneers in different fields of learning. Yet it is not for you to become a pioneer that the Buddha Fa has given you wisdom. You have attained it because you are a cultivator. That is, you are first a cultivator and then an expert. Then, as a cultivator, you should make use of all feasible conditions to spread Dafa and validate Dafa as a correct and true science, rather than preaching or idealism—this is every cultivator’s obligation. Without this enormous Buddha Fa there would be nothing—and this includes everything in the universe, from the most macroscopic to the most microscopic, as well as all of human society’s knowledge.” (“Validation,” Essentials for Further Advancement)
In order to deliver people to the new cosmos, we need to highlight the role of Minghui. As Dafa disciples, we need to cultivate ourselves well and clarify the truth to help people see the goodness of Dafa. They will, in turn, be saved into the new cosmos.
How well we cultivate is closely related to the Minghui website, which should be a very important part of our cultivation. Through those sharing articles, many practitioners develop a sense of urgency and can better devote themselves to carrying out their mission.
Minghui plays an essential part in our cultivation, and we should place Minghui in the right position. This will help the world to know about Falun Dafa better and for people to be better saved.
This is my understanding at my level. Please kindly point out anything inappropriate.
