兑现史前大愿 Fulfilling My Prehistoric Vow
AM11: HQ Man - Sydney
Greetings Revered Master!
Greetings fellow practitioners!
I am a 70-year-old Dafa disciple who obtained the Fa in 1996. I would like to report to Master and share with fellow practitioners about my cultivation journey.
Steadfastly following the Fa-rectification pace in saving sentient beings
On September 26, 2000, Minghui Net published the editorial “Serious Teachings”. In the article, Master said: “In the midst of the Fa-rectification, a god’s single thought about Dafa determines his existence or destruction. Can those who’ve obtained Dafa regard things as everyday people do? If a person has obtained the Fa but isn’t able to validate the Fa, does he still deserve to be a Dafa disciple? No matter how he persists in studying the Fa and doing the exercises at home, he is being controlled by demons and is enlightening along an evil path.”
I kept Master’s words in my mind. I told myself that I must persist in validating the Fa; otherwise, I couldn’t consider myself a Dafa disciple. Since then, I have been following the Fa-rectification steadfastly, and doing all the things that a Dafa disciple ought to do.
Since my arrival in Australia in 2002, I have taken part in clarifying the truth, distributing materials, and making calls to China exposing the persecution. In 2004, the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” was published, and thus I began to distribute the “Nine Commentaries”. In 2005, “Quitting the CCP” began. I started to call friends and family, persuading them to quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organisations. Later, I began making these calls to others also. Savouring every precious opportunity, I clarified the truth to predestined sentient beings upon going for a walk, catching the train, bus, or when dining out.
Master said: “Wasn’t their bravery in coming here a way of validating the Fa-rectification and placing their hope in the Fa-rectification? That’s why I have said that we cannot leave them behind, and that we must save them and think of ways to save them! Even though they may be confused at the moment, or they may have lost their capacity to recognize truth or reality, owing to their concepts being warped by the Party culture over time, we still have to find ways to save them. (“Teaching the Fa at the 2005 Manhattan International Fa Conference”)
As no ready-made telephone numbers were provided at the time, I found phone numbers online and clarified the truth to Mainland Chinese. Then I would change the final digit of every number to reach even more people. Earlier on, upon making these calls, I felt a sense of distance separating me and the person on the line. Later, I began adopting the inclusive term “we”, rather than “you”, saying: “We shouldn’t tie ourselves together with the wicked CCP, they are evil, we are good. Good and evil should be separated, and when the wicked Party receives retribution, we won’t be implicated.” I found this means of communication much easier and more effective in regards to their quitting the CCP and drawing me closer to them.
I have continued to making truth-clarifying calls to this very day, and along the way, I underwent many touching experiences. On three occasions, I actually managed to contact CCP members while they were having their branch meetings. This enabled me to get dozens to withdraw in one go. Once, after persuading five young men to withdraw from the CCP, they all chose my surname as their alias surname. In another incident, a man, after receiving my call, exclaimed: “I have been waiting for you for a long time.” I gave him the software for unblocking the Internet censorship; he agreed to persuade his family members to quit the CCP. Some upon answering would even say: “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness Compassion and Forbearance is good.” However, on another occasion, a man cursed me hysterically, but my heart remained unmoved. I simply persevered, called him several times more, and calmly told him: “I am doing this for your own good,” and he became a completely different person. He then withdrew from the CCP, and repeatedly said: “I’m sorry. Thank you.”
Ever since Master mentioned the urgency of saving sentient beings, I decided phone calls alone wouldn’t suffice. If Master was feeling a sense of urgency, I should too. I decided I would travel to tourist sights and begin clarifying the truth face-to-face. At first, I only went on weekends, but after my husband’s arrival in Australia in 2009, I have managed to clarify the truth at tourist sites on a daily basis.
Clarifying the truth at tourist sites & helping tourist guides quit the CCP.
With cars coming and going, and hundreds of people passing by, tourist sites are truly a great place to save sentient beings. As soon as the coach arrives, we volunteers greet the passengers, distribute materials, clarify the truth, and persuade them to withdraw from the Party. We dare not waste any time. It is common for the tourists to only stay for a short while before proceeding to take photos elsewhere, thus we look for opportunities to run with them. Sending forth righteous thoughts in our hearts, simultaneously clarifying the truth through our words, we meanwhile seek others to speak to, so no predestined beings will miss their opportunity. Some agree to quit in an instance, sometimes even entire families quit at once, and others shout: “Falun Dafa is good!” Others gesture with a thumbs up and say: “You have worked hard.” I am truly so happy for all these sentient beings who have been saved, and the more I do, the more energetic I become.
We also target tourists guides when clarifying the truth, and I have pursued several to withdraw from the CCP. Saving them is very important, as tourist guides have a great influence over their tourists. I found that those who had withdrawn would help others to. Once, as I was persuading two tourists who dared not make a comment, their tour guide beside them said: “Quit it. I have quit already,” and the two men then proceeded to happily withdraw from the CCP.
There was once this tour guide who seemed very wicked. After getting off the bus, he always had the evil Party’s flag in hand, the evil Party’s thing on his chest, and he often sang the evil Party’s song. As he was also from my home town of Beijing, I drew closer to him in clarifying the truth, but he wouldn’t listen and stopped tourists from taking our materials. He was very mischievous with me, yet I wasn’t anxious, and continued to clarify the truth to him on every occasion I saw him.
One day, suddenly I heard someone shouting: “Give me a newspaper!” Unable to find him, I suddenly saw that tour guide stick his head out of the vehicle. It was him! I quickly ran to him, handed him the materials and said: “Quickly quit.” He replied: “I never joined the Party”. I responded: “Then quit from its youth league and young pioneers organisation,” and he nodded “OK”. It took two years, but now he had at last been saved! I was truly happy for him! Now he no longer says bad things or holds the evil Party’s flag. During our truth clarification to tourists, he now no longer interferes.
Overcoming tribulations with righteous thoughts, Dafa shows Its mighty power when we truly cultivate ourselves
Last year, my body bore a heavy hardship, but with the power of Dafa, I denied the interference and overcame the tribulation. Since June last year, I found it very difficult to fall asleep at night, and this was followed by drowsiness that kept me feeling sleepy all day and night. As soon as I would arrive home, keeping my eyes open was a challenge, and I would almost fall asleep during dinner. I thus began to strengthen my Fa study and sending forth righteous thoughts. After some time, the drowsiness vanished, only to be replaced by coughing, and splitting throat and chest pains. After one month’s suffering from that, even worse things happened. My stomach began to ache, I couldn’t keep any food down, and the pain kept me awake all night. My appetite diminished along with my physical strength. As soon as the pain struck, I would lose all of my strength. I felt suffocated and found bending over difficult. The suffering was so intense, and I was finding this tribulation very difficult to overcome. I cried softly: “Master,” and the thought in my heart was “holding onto Master’s hands tightly”.
I knew that cultivators should have no illnesses. I thought to myself: “I have the powerful Falun within me; no diseases should dare approach me. This is evil interference, and I shouldn’t accept it.” In the face of these hardships, I studied the Fa day and night, and looked inward for any possible human attachments. During this time, I also kept performing the 5 sets of exercises on a daily basis. I thought, even if I had attachments, I shouldn’t accept any evil interference. I have my Master taking care of me. I will rectify myself with Dafa.
Three weeks later, upon waking up in the morning, I recalled that Master required Dafa disciples to let go of things of humans in order to have things of God. Wasn’t the process of my suffering a means of sifting these human things from me? From that day onward, my body gradually recovered. I lost weight, but nonetheless, I was in good spirits. Looking back at those three weeks, I had only eaten a thin sesame paste every day, and sometimes I had trouble even keeping that down. I needed to catch the train and then walk for half an hour to get to the tourist site, but I was full of energy; my legs and feet were never tired. When I started coughing, I was not able to talk at home, but I could talk at the tourist site when clarifying the truth and persuading people to quit from the CCP. I knew that it was Master giving me this strength; it was the mighty power of Dafa reflected in me.
Just as these tribulations passed, another arrived. One morning, I ran to the station to avoid being late. As I crossed the road, I tripped over and fell down hard on the road. My first thought was: “Master, I’m fine. I must get up quickly, I have a train to catch”, yet I couldn’t get up. Two people hurried over to help me, but I waved my hands saying no, as I wanted to get up by myself. I slowly got up, moved my feet, and managed to walk, leaning my body against the wall. I found my elbow bleeding, but still I had the same thought in mind: “You can’t stop me from saving people.” Finally, I caught up to the next train on my lame legs, and clarified the truth at the tourist site as usual.
Once at home, looking down at my legs, I found my right knee badly swollen, my left foot was black, and both legs were a purple complexion. And the following day, going to the tourist site was more difficult. But I had to go. I thought to myself: “Evil interference can’t stop me from saving people; the more it tries, the more I need to go.” Though I was undergoing physical tribulations one after another, righteous thoughts of believing in Master and Dafa allowed me to overcome it. I didn’t let it stop me clarifying the truth at the tourist site. In fact, from 2009 to this day, I have never missed a day of going to the tourist site, persuading people to quit the CCP.
Since starting my cultivation, I have always taken Fa study seriously. As a Dafa disciple, doing the three things well, studying the Fa deeply, and performing righteous thoughts is a must. My day consists of doing the five exercises after waking up, then going to the tourist site, making calls to China in the afternoon, listening to Master’s lectures on the way, and reading Dafa books at night time. Every day, my time is well-used and my life enriched.
My husband has shown great support for my effort in clarifying the truth and saving people. He takes care of everything in our daily lives so I don’t have to worry about anything else. Later, we moved homes to a place with close-by transport. Now, going to the tourist site is much more convenient. Master truly arranges Dafa disciples’ cultivation path. As I had the wish of saving more sentient beings, Master provided the opportunity and created favourable conditions for me.
At the tourist site, smooth coordination among practitioners is very important. Therefore, we cooperate very well together. As soon as there are tourists reading the information on the display boards, practitioners who are holding the banners will tell other fellow practitioners to persuade them to quit the CCP. Oftentimes, it is relatively easier persuading them to quit. If one is not successful, another practitioner will have a try, and then the person will quit. We also share information so as to not miss any predestined sentient beings, and to avoid the occasion of a person being asked to quit twice. Sometimes when a practitioner is physically uncomfortable, we call that person and remind them to study the Fa more, and hurry out to save more people. In short, when we coordinate well, we are able to save more sentient beings.
In “Fa Teaching at the 2009 Greater New York International Fa Conference”, Master said: “Saving sentient beings is first and foremost. Just try to save more and more people.” I know that every day we have is in exchange for Master’s huge suffering. The Fa-rectification is reaching its end, and time is limited. I thus must seize the time to save more people, fulfil my prehistoric vows, and ultimately return home with Master.
Thank you Master!
Thank you fellow practitioners!
