(Minghui.org) As the Covid-19 virus turned into a global pandemic Falun Dafa practitioners, including myself, felt an increased urgency to awaken more people. I’ve mainly tried to get people to remember and recite the phrase “Falun Dafa is good” during this difficult time, and quite a few of them have seen good results.
An Acquaintance Learns the Truth about Dafa
On my way to the market I recognized an old acquaintance heading towards me on his motorbike. Not wanting to miss the opportunity to talk to him about Dafa, I called out, “Hello!” He stopped and I said, “I want to share something with you. According to experts, this pandemic has not peaked yet. Please remember and say, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ Many people who have said these two phrases have kept them safe when they have sincerely said them." He was very thankful and said, "I will." I didn't get to tell him more as he was in a hurry.
A few months later I saw him again at the farmers’ market. He waved at me from a distance. As I walked towards him, he pulled me aside and told me that an elderly woman he ran into in his village gave him a booklet about Dafa. He accepted it and before she could say anything, he said, “Falun Dafa is good.” The woman smiled and said that he had a predestined relationship with Falun Dafa.
He also told me that a few days ago he received a truth-clarification phone call from someone outside of China. He told me what he learned from the conversation and commented that it was all very good information. I told him why it’s important to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. He said he never joined any of them.
He smiled and said, “Are you Falun Dafa practitioners supernormal? Why is it that as soon as I recite ‘Falun Dafa is good,’ I keep running into Dafa practitioners telling me about the practice and the persecution?” I told him he is blessed and that divine beings want to save him.
A Local Bully Says Dafa Is Good
One local man is a bully and people get nervous whenever his name is mentioned. If someone dares to cross him, he will do anything to get even. On the other hand, he is not afraid of standing up to powerful people to uphold justice. I thought about clarifying the truth to him, but I just couldn’t work up the courage because he was notorious for his aggression and violent behavior.
After the lockdown restrictions were lifted, I ran into him one day. I silently asked Master Li (Falun Dafa’s founder) to strengthen my righteous thoughts and help eliminate my fear. With many people watching, I clarified the truth to him and asked him to remember, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” so he would stay safe.
This young man immediately agreed and thanked me. He then turned around and told the older man next to him, “Remember ‘Falun Dafa is good.’” The older man nodded and said he would.
My Family Knows that Falun Dafa Is Good
I was arrested for my faith a few years ago. Out of fear that the police would come after me again, my family stopped me whenever I mentioned Falun Dafa.
“But I still have to save my family,” I thought. “Especially my children, they all have a predestined relationship with Dafa and came to this world to be saved. I can’t leave them behind.” I always looked for opportunities to gradually clarify the truth to them. I stressed the importance of remembering and saying, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” to keep them out of harm’s way.
As virus cases increased in Wuhan and then quickly spread across China, everyone was scared. Our city as well as the local residential communities went into a strict lockdown. For months, we couldn’t see our families.
When we called each other, the conversation always revolved around the pandemic. I could hear the worry and the helplessness in their voices. I thought about sending text messages to remind my family to say, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” but hesitated, knowing that our texts could be monitored by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party). However, I was surprised to find that my family already knew what to do, especially the little ones.
My daughter-in-law called my wife one day and as usual, talked about how devastating the pandemic was and how worried she and my son were. Then her voice changed and became very upbeat. She reported that just as the couple felt hopeless, her son reminded them, “Reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good’ often will keep you safe in a disaster.” I took the phone from my wife and told her, “Yes. As long as you all remember to recite this powerful phrase, you don’t need to worry.”
My older daughter called to tell me that while watching a news report on the global pandemic, her 10-year-old son told her, “Just recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She said the boy recited these phrases every day.
My younger daughter lives in a different city. She called my wife and naturally started talking about the pandemic. I had previously told my granddaughter, a middle schooler, about Dafa and knew that she believes in Gods and Buddhas. I asked to speak to her and asked if she recalled our conversation. She said yes and recited Master’s poem,
“Rich or poor, all the same,Nowhere to hide when calamity strikes.” (“Seek the Truth,” Hong Yin III)
“Do you still remember the two phrases I taught you?” She replied yes. My wife took the phone and said, “You should all recite these phrases. They will keep you safe.”
My Granddaughter Aced the High School Entrance Exam
Before the high school entrance exam, my daughter called and sounded frustrated. She said that my granddaughter scored very low on the mock test. She worried that her daughter wouldn’t get accepted by any of the good schools, but the girl didn’t seem to be concerned.
I told her to keep reminding her daughter to recite the two phrases and just let nature take its course. My granddaughter believes that Dafa is good and I believe everything will go according to Master’s plan, which will be the best arrangement for her.
After the exam, my daughter and granddaughter came to visit. My granddaughter told us a story. A few days before the big exam, her father worried that she would not do well so he invited a qigong master to help open her wisdom. The qigong master asked my granddaughter to sit down before he pushed and grabbed the air in front of her. My granddaughter thought it was pretty comical and quietly recited “Falun Dafa is good,” the entire time.
After a while, the qigong master asked her if she felt anything, to which she said no. The qigong master tried even harder to channel energy and worked up a sweat. Still, my granddaughter didn’t feel a thing. The qigong master was out of breath as well as ideas so he told her parents, “Your daughter is a child of the Buddha School.”
She really is a child of the Buddha Fa and only believes in Master Li and Falun Dafa. During their short visit, my granddaughter asked many questions about the heavens and other dimensions. She asked about the persecution against Falun Dafa, how to save people, and how to apply the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in her daily life and become a better person. I couldn’t even answer some of her questions.
Because the exam results were being released, my daughter and granddaughter went home. My daughter called with wonderful news—my granddaughter was accepted by one of the best high schools in their city, with a score of more than 100 points above this school’s acceptance mark. My granddaughter also sent me a text message and thanked me. I said we should all thank Master Li!
