Saving People is the Mission of Dafa Practitioners
(Minghui.org) Many died during the epidemic outbreak a few months ago. As a Dafa practitioner, I was very worried.
I was eager to go out to help save people, and asked Master Li for protection and to reinforce my righteous thoughts. I went out almost every day.
Although I met very few people, I greeted them warmly, and they usually responded in kind. In this way, I was able to discuss the facts about Falun Dafa with them quite easily.
I started by asking if they knew about Falun Dafa. Some said that they already knew the truth and had quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations (the Youth League and Young Pioneers), which is also referred to as “the three withdrawals.”
Before we bid farewell, I always taught them to recite the auspicious phrase, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
One day, I met a retired police officer. We were both riding a bicycle.
He told me he used to be affected by the CCP’s defamatory propaganda and had negative thoughts about Falun Dafa, but he later came to understand that practitioners were cultivating Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and were truly helping people.
He also said, “Do you know why our area is not affected by the Coronavirus? Some people said we are being illuminated by the Buddha’s light.” I saw that he had a strong belief in gods and Buddhas deep in his heart. I then made a pseudonym for him and helped him do the three withdrawals.
I once met a man and persuaded him to do the three withdrawals. He agreed and was glad to accept the amulet I gave him. He then asked me to take off my mask so that he could see me. Perhaps it was because he felt a sense of familiarity and thought I was a relative whom he hadn’t met for a long time.
I took off my mask and smiled, “We don’t know each other, right?” I wished him the best of luck before we parted.
Another time, I clarified the truth to a man who used to be the vice director of a government bureau. He was very talkative and told me he knew a few Dafa practitioners in our local area.
Among those practitioners, there was a couple who were very good people. The wife had even been jailed for her belief. They told him the facts about Falun Dafa and tried to persuade him to do the three withdrawals, but he declined.
I further explained the importance of doing the three withdrawals and told him that the withdrawals could protect him from any future calamity, including the current epidemic.
He disclosed that he had been a CCP member for 50 years. I told him that our meeting was not coincidental, and likely a predestined relationship. He then agreed to withdraw from the CCP, and we submitted the pseudonym of “three withdrawals.”
As I rode away on my bicycle for a distance, I still heard him calling out, “Truthfulness! Compassion! Forbearance!”
One day, I saw a woman walking toward me with a smile. I realized she must also be a person with a predestined relationship. She asked for directions. I told her, “I don’t know that place. However, I have a heavenly message to tell you.”
I then taught her to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” and told her that those words would give her protection from gods and Buddhas.
I also explained many other truths to her. She became tearful and repeatedly thanked me. Apparently, she had never joined any organizations. I then gave her an amulet, and together we said those auspicious phrases.
At that point, I saw a man standing on the roadside, so I rode over to him. After I began to clarify the truth to him, I saw the lady with whom I was talking walking up to us; It turned out they were a couple.
I asked him if he joined any CCP organizations. He said he was a member of the Youth League and Young Pioneers. He agreed to quit using his real name. I thought, “These sentient beings were all waiting for help after their long history of reincarnation. Shouldn’t they be happy?”
Some people believed the truth, and some didn’t. For those who rejected it, I also treated them with compassion, asked them to think further, and expressed my hope to meet them again.
I recently met a man and told him Falun Dafa is good but was unjustly suppressed by former CCP leader Jiang Zemin.
When he heard this, he immediately said that Jiang had done nothing good, and everyone was cursing him. He also mentioned that he had been entrapped by a cousin who used to work as a secretary for the CCP.
I suggested he put down his resentment towards his cousin. Finally, he agreed to quit the Young Pioneers.
When I clarified the truth to a middle-aged man, he clearly recognized the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and said, “Our country has been ruined by the CCP. Fake goods are being sold everywhere.”
I said, “During the past decades, the morality of Chinese people has deteriorated badly, and they are fighting for personal gains by all means. Yes, fake milk powders, fake rice, fake cooking oil…”
He continued, “There is also a fake vaccine, which is more harmful!” We talked as friends for quit a while. He ended up quitting the CCP with a pseudonym.
I often think of Master’s verse,
“He comes with Truth that gives him free reignAnd travels the four seas with a free and easy spiritThe Fa’s principles spread throughout the worldHis Fa Boat sets sail, loaded full with sentient beings”(“Tathagata,” Hong Yin Vol. II)
I normally study three lectures of Zhuan Falunevery day and try to study other teachings if I still have time. I go out to tell people the truth about Falun Dafa once or twice per day. I also do the five sets of exercises for two and half hours as well.
As Dafa practitioners, we all have very important missions. The sentient beings who have been lost are waiting for us. This is the final but most important time.
If we lose the opportunity, it won’t come again. We have been clarifying the truth for a long time, and many people still don't know about the importance of doing the three withdrawals.
We need to continue to go out to help people. It is like the harvest season; the crops are mature, so how can we leave them rotting in the field?
Only if we try our best to help more people, can they be rescued from the brink of death and remain as future lives.
