Experience Sharing on Urging to Quit the CCP at Tourist Attractions
Greetings revered Master! Greetings fellow practitioners!
I am a Swiss practitioner. Master has told us many times that the mission of Dafa disciples during the Fa-rectification period is to save sentient beings. It has been more than eight years since I started distributing the Nine Commentaries, clarifying the truth and urging people to quit the CCP at tourist attractions in Switzerland. Aside from weekends, I go to attractions to clarify the truth rain or shine. I deeply feel the importance and urgency of saving beings. Clarifying the truth at tourist attractions is saving people as well as cultivating and improving one’s character. Here I would like to share my experiences clarifying the truth and urging people to quit the CCP at tourist attractions:
I. Using different formats for different groups of people
Clarifying the truth to tourists
When the coaches arrive, the guide generally takes the tourists to lunch. At that time I walked with the tourists to distribute leaflets, clarify the truth and urge people to quit the CCP. This requires not only my legs to keep up with their speed of walking, but also my mouth to keep clarifying the truth and my brain to respond quickly as well. Sometimes when I clarify the truth to one person, several others come over to listen. When one of them agrees to quit, the other four or five follow suit. In this way, as I walk with the tourists, I can frequently convince a dozen people to quit the CCP at once. During the tourist season, I can convince a few dozen to quit within three or four hours. During the summer I am so busy that I become sweaty and breathless. In the winter’s snow and ice, my limbs freeze and get sore. Although I work very hard, I feel infinitely pleased when I see the lively scenes of sentient beings taking the initiative or even fighting to quit the CCP, having learned the truth, and their joy of being saved. My own character is also improved in the process.
In the past, it was rather difficult to clarify the truth or urge people to quit the CCP. Now I feel it is a lot easier. Many people quit at just a few words. I enlightened that this is due to the progress of Master’s Fa rectification in addition to a compassionate righteous field formed from my past few years of perseverance at the tourist attraction. "Buddha’s light shines everywhere, propriety and righteousness harmonize everything."
Clarifying the truth to groups:
(1) A group of atheist young people quit the CCP
After the tsunami in Japan, a group of young mainland Chinese tourists came to Switzerland. When I went up to give out truth materials, I heard two of them say to each other, “Today’s newspaper had ‘Switzerland is so beautiful, even gods would pay a visit’." Not only did they not take the leaflets, they also jeered, "Where is God? How come I did not see him? I only believe in myself." I asked them, “Have you seen the broadcast of Japan’s earthquake and tsunami?” Some answered, “Yes, it was broadcasted every day in China.” I then asked, “Do you know about the gold Buddha speaking and Bodhisattvas shedding tears?” Someone asked, “Where?” I said, “In Malaysia. Do you know about the Dizan Bodhisattva at Qingliang Temple of Shangqiu, Henan shedding tears?” Some shook their heads.
I asked, “Why would these Bodhisattvas cry?” The crowd was quiet, waiting for me to answer. I said, “It is for human beings! There will be a big catastrophe in this world! Humans are facing danger, yet they do not wake up! Buddha feels sad for humans!” Someone asked, “What catastrophe?” I said, “Heaven will eliminate the CCP. The Communist Party killed 80 million Chinese people. It will be punished. Gods will destroy it. All of you who have joined the Party, the Communist Youth League or the Young Pioneer have been stamped with the mark of the beast. If you do not erase it, you will be eliminated with it when the time comes. If the Japanese earthquake and tsunami lunged overwhelmingly, chasing you like a black devil, would you have had any chance of surviving? However in the hardest hit Fukushima, there were more than 20 Falun Gong practitioners. None of them were hurt. They were all safe.”
Someone asked anxiously, "Then what can be done?" I said, "Quit the CCP to guarantee your safety! Whatever you have joined, just quit it and you will be lucky and safe." The one who posed the question said, "Then I quit." Once he quit, the rest all wanted to quit. One by one they approached me, asking me to help them quit. Soon the whole group of people quit. Just before the door of the tourist bus closed, two lads jumped down from the bus and said to me, "Auntie, the two of us were in the bus. We did not know about quitting the CCP. Those in the bus told us you could help us. We also quit." I said, “Great!” Having quit the CCP, the pair took the leaflets and happily boarded the bus.
(2) A group of tourists quit the CCP upon learning the truth
One day I saw a group of tourists waiting for the return bus. I smiled at them and said, “Hello, take some leaflets to read!” Then a 30-year-old lad said with an unhappy face, “Go! Go! Go! I don’t read Falun Gong’s material.” I said to him peacefully, “It seems that you do not know about Falun Gong. Falun Gong teaches Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. The CCP teaches false, evil and violence. Is Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance better? Or is false, evil and violence better?” I exposed how the evil party lied. They paid lip service to patriotism, but countless corrupt officials fled abroad with astronomical amounts of money. For their own selfish interests, they ruined our beautiful motherland, causing serious pollution in what people eat, drink or breathe and putting people's lives in danger. At this point someone nodded. I continued to talk about Wang Lijun and Bo Xilai, exposing their crime of profiteering from harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. They even made money by selling dried bodies. I also described in detail that an armed police revealed he witnessed the tragic scene of a 38-year-old female Falun Gong practitioner being organ harvested alive. He said in grief and indignation, “My gun had 10 bullets. If it were not for the sake of my dad, I definitely would have killed these thugs.”
A young man in the crowd shouted, “Ah! I’m about to collapse! It is simply not humane!” The crowd began to chatter. Someone asked, “Is this true?” Before I had a chance to answer, a lady approached me, “I believe it.” Another man said, “In order to make money, the CCP will do anything.” I continued, “This is the evil nature of the Communist Party! I think nobody believes in the Communist Party anymore. Let me give you a pseudonym to quit the CCP.” The lady said firmly, “I’ll do it!” Then everyone quit, including the young man with the unhappy face. Many also took the Nine Commentaries and truth materials. When boarding the bus and saying goodbye, a lady grabbed my hand and said, "Falun Gong is really brave. You have suffered a lot! Your spirit is touching. Victory belongs to you. The dawn is at hand."
(3) Using bird flu to clarify the truth and save people
One day I met a group of tourists from Shanghai. I greeted them, “Look, today there is coverage of bird flu in Shanghai.” Someone was surprised, “How come there is bird flu again in Shanghai?” They all fought over the truth materials. Some said, “We just left a few days ago. We have not yet gotten to the bottom of the dead pigs; where did this bird flu come from?” Some said, “Yes, I looked online. It is the same as SARS in the past. There is no cure.” It was apparent that they were panicking. They complained, “How come Shanghai is so unlucky? We have no way of not going back. How do we live in the future?”
I took the opportunity to clarify the truth, “These unfortunate things happening in Shanghai are not accidental.” The crowd quieted down and listened. I went on, “History is surprisingly similar. You know the ancient Roman emperor called Nero branded Christianity as a cult. He fed the Christians to lions, burned them in fire and enforced other tortures. Later, as retribution, Nero committed suicide. Rome then suffered four great plagues. Dead bodies covered the land with no one to bury them, and there was no one to harvest the crops. However, there were some people left who said good things about the Christians, who did not follow the crowd and who had kindness and conscience. Think about it, Jiang Zemin's lair is in Shanghai. He is the culprit of the Falun Gong persecution, slandering Falun Gong as ‘x religion’. Countless Falun Gong practitioners are abducted, imprisoned and tortured, and many have been disabled or have died. Even Falun Gong practitioners’ organs are harvested alive. So don’t the tragedies happening in Shanghai have anything to do with Jiang Zemin’s evil doings?!”
Someone approached me and said, “Jiang Zemin is too evil!” I said, “Jiang Zemin does evil things that are not tolerated by Heaven’s laws. If people do not punish him, Heaven will. Now bird flu has taken hold of China and there is no cure. Isn’t it the same as what happened to the Romans? It is really worth thinking about! Jiang Zemin persecutes Falun Gong. Some people follow suit. They do not accept truth materials and do not listen to the truth or see the truth. Some know the truth, but turn a blind eye. How can these people survive in the catastrophe? I advise you to distinguish between good and evil. God is merciful. Do not be pessimistic or panic. Protect yourselves! Believe in deities, follow Heaven’s will and escape the catastrophe, that is, quit the CCP to guarantee your safety. I can help you pick a pseudonym to quit the CCP.” The whole group of Shanghai tourists all quit.
(4) A group of mainland tourists took the initiative to quit the CCP
On the 4th of April, I saw a pickup tourist bus with an elderly couple standing in front of its door. When they saw me, they said gently, “You have been working hard. It is really not easy! We often visit your website. We feel at ease reading your reports. Many fellow internet users in China entrusted us to give you their gratitude. It is very convenient with the breakthrough software you supplied. Otherwise, we would really be blind and deaf. We can see NTDTV, The Epoch Times and Sound of Hope. We love to hear Shi Tao Today's Hits with an authentic Beijing dialect, which is awesome.” The elderly couple not only took the truth materials themselves, but also urged others to accept.
Then came some tourists who often used the internet. At the mention of environmental pollution in China, they all voiced hate towards Communist Party, saying it was impossible to live. I advised them not to be pessimistic, “Protect yourself! Believe in Gods and Buddhas. With the blessing of deities, various kinds of pollution will not affect you.” One person said, “It makes sense.” I continued, “Deities are omnipresent. Quit the CCP to guarantee your safety. I will help you register.” As a result, everyone I asked quit the CCP. In the end many quit the CCP, and truth materials also went fast. After quitting the CCP, some people shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!" Some people also said to me emotionally, "It is Falun Gong that saved our lives. Falun Dafa is good!" Then there were other people who shouted, “Falun Dafa is good!” I also could not help but shout, “Falun Dafa is good!”
II. The battle between good and evil
Tourist attractions are a platform that Master created for disciples to save people. The publication of the Nine Commentaries triggered a wave of quitting the CCP. Every day countless beings quit the CCP at tourist attractions, accelerating the rate of the CCP disintegration, so the CCP is scared to death and does everything possible to sabotage these CCP quitting activities at tourist attractions. From time to time, they harass volunteers, send National Security special agents to follow volunteers, steal truth materials, steal volunteers’ backpacks or pull carts and take close-up photos or videos. The evil also manipulated shop security staff, who did not know the truth, to harass us, reporting us to the police and driving us away. However, we were not moved and continued to save sentient beings. Master said in Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston, “The old forces don't dare to oppose our clarifying the truth or saving sentient beings.”
Through sharing and looking inward, practitioners realized that we had a loophole. We had not clarified the truth to the shop security staff. They were manipulated by the evil because they did not know the truth. Immediately afterwards we clarified the truth to shop security staff and the police. A western practitioner took the initiative to clarify the truth to the shop security staff repeatedly. Other fellow practitioners supported with righteous thoughts and asked for Master's reinforcement.
Under Master’s protection and the support of fellow practitioners’ coordination and righteous thoughts, a positive energy field was formed, and soon the evil was disintegrated. Three days later, the police gave us a new permit, which was more lenient than the original one. We resumed our activities to save people
Evil’s persecution of my body
Around 9:30pm in the evening of March 29, 2011, practitioners brought me truth materials. As I walked home carrying one box of materials, I tripped on the stairs. The materials scattered all over the floor. My mouth was torn and a pool of blood formed. As soon as I shut my mouth, it again filled with blood. I then shouted, “Master, help me!” The blood immediately stopped. I approached Master’s picture to thank Master with Heshi and said to Master, “I have not done well. I do not accept the evil’s persecution. The evil attempts to stop me from clarifying the truth to save people. I will use my mouth to save people and will definitely go tomorrow. Please Master help me.” Then I went to the bathroom and saw that my teeth and mouth were covered with blood clots. After washing, I looked inward and discovered that I had the attachment to complacency, thinking that I could move such heavy materials even at my old age. However, I thought even if I had a loophole, the evil was not allowed to persecute me.
I sent forth righteous thoughts until half past two in the morning. I heard a voice asking me to rest for a while, so I lay down. As I was dozing off, I saw a hand going into my mouth. I realized that it was Master helping me mend my mouth. The next morning, I went to the bathroom again and saw my mouth was no longer red or swollen. It was intact as before. I cried. It was Master who gave me a perfect mouth. I went once again in front of Master’s picture to Heshi, thanking the merciful Master. It was really "When disciples have ample righteous thoughts, Master has the power to turn back the tide" (The Master-Disciple Bond, Hong Yin II). I set out on time to save sentient beings.
III. Only by studying the Fa well can more sentient beings be saved
Master said in Be More Diligent, "A Dafa disciple’s righteous thoughts stem from the Fa." I put Fa study first. Every day I made good use of time to study the Fa more, and I readily used the Fa to rectify myself. Only in such a way could I maintain a compassionate, peaceful mind and a righteous field, which can save sentient beings. During the course of truth clarification at tourist attractions, I often encountered those who curse, ridicule, abuse, beat, kick or even take close up photos or videos. At those times I would often be driven by emotions, resulting in attachments to competitiveness, fear, grievance and resentment. With continuous Fa study and sending forth righteous thoughts, I would look inward for loopholes, constantly removing bad things in my mind. When I understood the Fa principles, my mentality changed and my heart became tolerant. I felt that those who had been deeply poisoned by the evil Party are pitiful. They are also sentient beings persecuted by the evil CCP. They are even more in need for us to clarify the truth to them patiently. The fact that we are able to meet them today means they are predestined. We must save them. Of course, some came to make trouble or interfere, in which case I would send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the interference.
For more than eight years, on the path of face to face truth clarification at the front line, I feel that with the omnipresence of Master and the Fa, everything is possible. Clarifying the truth to save people, in fact, is all done by Master. It is Master’s grand mercy that gave me wisdom and made me mature. My path has become smoother, and I have saved more and more people. According to incomplete statistics, since 2008 I have helped more than 40,000 people quit the CCP, including professors, engineers, provincial Party Secretaries, army commanders, ministers, senior officials with bodyguards, police, 610 Office staff, etc. They really quit the CCP from the bottom of their hearts. Some even left me their business cards, hoping to keep in touch.
People quit the CCP sometimes as a whole family, sometimes as groups, sometimes as a bus crowd and sometimes led by the Party Secretary.... Through the process of saving people, I kept running into people who would like to pass on their greetings to Master. Often when someone is saved, they would shout, “Falun Dafa is good. Thank you, Master Li!” Some also thanked all the overseas media and truth clarification volunteers who kept them informed of the true situation in time.
Master's teachings and everyone's trust, support and encouragement made me feel the weight of my responsibility. Fellow practitioners, let us be diligent. Before the last moment arrives, do better and quickly save more people.
Thank you, Master!
Thank you, fellow practitioners!
