Falun Dafa Hao
天缘，悉尼，Tian Yuan, Sydney
师父好！Greetings to Master!
大家好！Greetings to everyone!
My name is Tian Yuan, meaning Heavenly Predestined, just as Master said in Zhuan Falun, “Everyone sits here all because of a predestined relationship.” I’m now six and a half years old. In November 2004, I was born in Royal North Shore Hospital. Just half an hour after I was born, Grandma held me in her arms and said to me, “Falun Dafa Hao! Zhen Shan Ren Hao! Tian Yuan, Tian Yuan you must remember this.” She also told me, “You came from the Heaven before the end of Fa-rectification and just in time to obtain Dafa. How wonderful!”
After I was one and half years old, every morning Grandma would ask me, "Tian Yuan, what is the first thing that we shall do today?” I would answer, "Watch Master’s Lectures!" Then I would be watching or listening while I was playing. When it was time to sleep, Grandma would sing the song Falun Dafa Hao, until I fell asleep. It was like this almost every day and thus, I was fortunately companied with Dafa every day.
I was able to recite Lu Yu soon after I turned two and already learnt quite a few poems from Hong Yin when I was three years old. Starting from my fifth’s birthday until my sixth birthday, with the help and encouragement from my Grandma, my mum and fellow practitioners of Eastwood, I had finished reading Zhuan Falun in Chinese word by word three times. Currently, I still have quite a few pages left before I finish reading the fourth time.
From studying Fa, I understood that “Zhen-Shan-Ren is the Sole Criterion to Discern Good and Bad People”. When other little children swore at me or hit me, sometimes I might have a cry; however, I would not swear or hit back.
Last year, when I was in Kindergarten, I participated in the 2010 National Chinese Eisteddfod for native speakers with my school mates and won the third place in 4-6 years olds’ group competition. I also won the third place in the group of 4-6 individuals as a native speaker. Since this February when I started Year 1 up till now, I have finished reading over 300 Children’s books in English. Because Dafa made me intelligent, I could achieve all these.
When I was little, I sat in a pram and Grandma took me out to distribute Falun Gong flyers in the neighbourhood. When I was three years old, I could distribute the flyers along one side of the street while Grandma along the other side. I could speak to the people in English or Chinese, “Please remember truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance.” People often delighted and said to me, “Thank you!” or “What a clever girl!”
Sometimes, I could also help Grandma to clarify the truth and save people. Once we were waiting for the train at Eastwood train station, there was a lady with sunglasses with her daughter commenting how pretty I looked. I said, “I look pretty because I studied Falun Dafa.” The lady took off her sunglasses and asked how old I was. I told her I was 5. She turned to ask my Grandma, “How come such a little child already believes in Falun Gong?” Grandma said, “Because Falun Gong saved her life!” Then Grandma asked me to explain to the lady how Dafa saved me.
So I told her when I was four years old, once at dinner time, a fish bone stuck in my throat. It hurt when I drank water. I couldn’t swallow anything. I cried loudly and it hurt more when breathing. Grandma said, “Try to ask Shifu for help!” So I beared the pain with tears still falling down, put my palms together Heshi like this, facing Shifu’s portray, and said: "Falun Dafa Hao! Zhen Shan Ren Hao! Tian Yuan Tian Yuan shall always remember. Could Shifu please get rid of Ka Ka (referring to the thing got stuck in the throat) for me?” After that, Grandma took me back to dinner. No more Ka Ka in throat. Grandma told them that the whole thing happened in merely three minutes.
With their eyes wide open, they both said: "How amazing it is!” The lady said, “Previously there have been many who told me Falun Gong is good and persuaded me to quit from CCP and its affiliate organizations, but I was never convinced. This time I am convinced. This little girl is telling the truth.” My Grandma said to her, “Quit CCP to keep you safe.” She agreed happily. Her daughter also quitted the Communists’ Young Pioneer. At the time for farewell, we gave them our best wishes and asked them to always remember “Falun Dafa Hao! Zhen Shan Ren Hao!” They kept thanking us.
When I was little, I was in a dangerous situation quite a few times. It has always been Dafa that saved me. From now on, I will study Fa diligently, not to be afraid that the Chinese characters are difficult. I would not always think of playing. I will keep the words that Shifu said to us in To the Australia Fa Conference, “Don't just go through the motions when you study the Fa. You should study with a concentrated mind, and you must really be studying.” I will also do the exercises well and learn to send righteous thoughts.
Finally, let us recite together Harmonizing with Fa:
Buddha’s light illuminates everywhere,
Propriety and justice are perfected and illuminated.
Together, wholeheartedly strive upward,
The path ahead is bright.
Falun Dafa Hao! Zhen Shen Ren Hao!
Thank you, every one!
