[PureInsight.org] When it comes to the feeling of the Lunar New Year, mainland Chinese people will feel ‘boring’, ‘busy’, etc., and cannot feel the real New Year. The feeling of the New Year has become the actions of ‘going home and getting together’, ‘going to reunite with parents’, which means people doing their best. During the Chinese New Year, if you do not go home, the family is not re-united and it seems that something is missing. Coupled with the so-called ‘Chinese New Year Gala’ held annually by the CCP, the exaggeration of the Chinese New Year, emphasizing ‘go home’ and ‘reunion’, etc., the Chinese people’s ancient ‘flavor of the New Year’ has been completely destroyed.
The ancients paid much attention to the New Year, not for eating and drinking. The ancients had traditional values, respecting the gods and Buddhas, believing that the gods and buddhas are above, such as ‘there are gods three-foot above the head’. The meaning of celebrating the New Year is to express admiration to Gods and Buddhas, appreciate their blessings of people, wishing gods and Buddhas can bless people more, be able to be good people in accordance with the guides of gods and Buddhas, and do more of good deeds. This is the true meaning of ‘Flavor of New Year’. The CCP destroys people’s admiration for gods and Buddhas, and it destroys the foundation of ‘Flavor of New Year’. In the lies of the CCP, people can only be further and further away from the traditional ‘Flavor of New Year’. New Year has become a burden and become boring.
I was born in the early 1970s. When I was old enough to keep some memories, the ten-year ‘Cultural Revolution’ of the CCP had ended. Due to the generation of grandfather and grandma, even if their traditional ideas and concepts were violently impacted by the CCP’s ‘Cultural Revolution’, many things were preserved in ideas and concepts, maintaining the moral standards of people at that time. Chinese New Year was still a bit interesting at that time. In addition to being able to put on new clothes and eat some meat, sugar, melon seeds, etc. that you can’t usually eat, you can still receive a lot of enlightenment education.
Many forms of respecting the heaven and earth and worshipping Buddha are gone after the twelfth lunar month because CCP lies and claims them as feudal superstition. Grandpa and grandma would tell us many forms of the past. Maybe I did not care that much at that time, but they were all installed in my heart. For example, when to respect the stove king and when to clean up the house. House cleaning is not only for cleanliness but also for cleaning away bad luck. At that time, the New Year’s festive goods were also prepared. The premise of preparation is that all the goods are prepared for the heavens and the gods, but not purely for eating and drinking. People stay up late on New Year’s Eve, called ‘shousui’ (stay awake all night), using bright light to dispel all plague, diseases and pain. On the first day of the New Year, people wear new cloths and pay respects to the elders. The children want the New Year’s red packages. The elderly will explain to you the meaning of ‘New Year’s Day’: You can suppress evil and hope that the younger generations will be safe in the new year. I have seen with my own eyes how grandfathers and grandmothers respect the world and their ancestors. I have also seen people in their 50s and 60s kowtow to people in their 80s and 90s. When they receive New Year’s money, the elderly gave some blessings and hopes. At that time, I did not find it ridiculous, I felt very sacred.
After the first day of the new year, Chinese people will go to visit their relatives. At that time, we all walked to visit our relatives, regardless of the distance. After arriving, in addition to talking about the domestic trivia, we talked more about personal stories of good and evil that we experienced personally. We felt close because of the annual visit, and the children were very educated. Before the fifteenth of the first lunar month, many temple fires and other forms will be held in various places, and they are also unfolding around heaven and earth, gods and Buddhas, and the retribution of good and evil, but it is not as straightforward as the expression.
With the reform since 1980s, people’s thinking has shifted to ‘look at the money’. The forcible inculcation of false, evil, and fighting values forced the ‘flavor of New year’ to become further and further away from our lives. In particular, the CCP persecutes Falun Gong and slanders Truth-Compassion-Forbearance. People’s moral standards are rapidly declining. People are increasingly pursuing fame and fortune under the party culture, pursuing eating, drinking, money, enjoyment, etc. There is no real ‘flavor of New year’. Without the sublimation of the spiritual realm, people will become more and more inferior and vulgar.
Who stole the ‘flavor of New year’ from Chinese people?
It is CCP which is the devil. While the CCP is destroying human morality, it is also pushing people toward animalization and materialization step by step. Hasn’t the CCP always said that “people are advanced animals”? When I was in school, I only felt that it was a joke. Looking back at the process of being ‘reformed’ by the CCP today, are people getting further and further away from the gods and Buddhas and becoming advanced animals? Become a descendant of Marxism-Leninism? The CCP is not joking. It is step by step turning the Chinese people and the people of the world into demons like it. It is a step more scary than turning into animals. That is a real process of destruction.
In the past 22 years of persecuting Falun Gong, the CCP has advocated its ‘greatness and integrity’. At the same time, it has always changed its methods to slander Falun Gong and slander the truth-compassion-tolerance. Minghui website reported that the Heilongjiang Political and Legal Committee secretly ordered the use of the so-called ‘clearing’ operation to plot and arrest Falun Gong practitioners during the Chinese New Year. The traditional ‘flavor of the New Year’ disappeared, and it became the persecution of Falun Gong and used the New Year to do bad things; Ancients blessings have turned into following the CCP’s devil, not for a blessing but for evil. This is the ‘flavor of the New Year’ in the eyes of the CCP, and destroying mankind is its true intention. Destroying traditions and persecuting Falun Gong is the last step in its destruction of mankind.
Only when people understand the truth, recognize the true face of the CCP, follow the requirements of the truth about Falun Gong, return to tradition, withdraw from the CCP and its associated organization, disintegrate the CCP, and act in accordance with truth-compassion- tolerance, can they welcome a China without CCP culture. Only then can we experience the real ‘flavor of the New Year’.
