Before the Human Rights Convention in Geneva (1): Our Righteous Mind

Print

The annual UN Human Rights convention is going to be held. Many practitioners will go to present a petition as usual. At the last stage of the Fa-rectification period, facing this large-scale activity participating with the worldwide practitioners, how can we do better through the past experiences and lessons need us, practitioners all over the world, to have a clear understanding based on the Fa?. Master said: “Your righteous thoughts and everything you accomplish come from the Fa."( Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.)” Below is my present understanding, and I would like to share it with fellow practitioners. Please correct me if there’s anything wrong.

1. Why are we going to Geneva? What kind of righteous thoughts should we have?

I’ve attended the activities in Geneva several times, and I think all of them are very important activities to spread the Fa. The Human Rights convention involves the officials in every country all over the world, which is a good chance that can be fully utilized to clarify the truth; meanwhile, we hope the UN can condemn the Chinese government’s persecution of Falun Gong through passing the resolution. We all know that the UN’s resolution will be a great shock to the evil regime, a support to the persecuted practitioners in China, as well as a chance for people all over the world to position themselves during the Fa-rectification.

Looking at the situation each time, the Chinese government used crooked means to evade the worldwide condemnation again and again. Why does it happen? We should search inward and rectify our hearts. The old forces, for the sake of testing Dafa and Dafa practitioners, carry out thoroughly considered arrangements, including the UN Human Rights convention. They therefore produce all sorts of difficulties and severe situations for us. As Dafa practitioners, we totally reject the arrangements of the old forces. Fundamentally, in our thoughts, we mustn’t admit these arrangements.. It is up to us to actively clarify the truth and save sentient beings. Master said: “Dafa disciples are now sentient beings' only, sole hope for salvation.”(Righteous Thoughts)

Therefore, what kind of righteous thoughts do we have when going to Geneva to clarify the truth and doing Dafa work is extremely important. We are saving sentient beings with righteous thoughts, and rejecting this kind of arrangement of the old forces. Let us say saving the fellow practitioner, Li Xiang Chun (Charles Li), if we just have an idea of taking advantage of this chance to tell the truth, but not from the root to negate the persecution of Li Xiang Chun, as well as exposing the evil with strong righteous thoughts to save a fellow practitioner at the same time, then, this nominally utilization is actually conceding to the old forces’ arrangements—persecuting Li Xiang Chun. That is the gap. Can we achieve the result of saving our fellow practitioner successfully? Master said: “Even though the old forces do exist, if you don't have those thoughts they can't do anything. When your righteous thoughts are strong enough the old forces can't do a thing.”(Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.) We should rectify and purify ourselves constantly.

Master mentioned: “Since you're Dafa disciples, you shouldn't put your hopes in so-called "natural" changes, external changes, changes in the ordinary society, or in some favors that someone might do for us”(Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.) We cannot put the hope of passing the resolution to those officials from different countries in ordinary society. The truth is that we, Dafa practitioners, are saving sentient beings, and are in the leading position. We should really take ourselves as future enlightened beings to have righteous thoughts and righteous actions. The resolution’s passing through should be accomplished by the purified, powerful righteous thoughts by us, all Dafa disciples. Master said: “You're cultivators, and all changes come from your cultivation and the Fa-rectification.”(Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.) We are not attached to the result, nor asking for resolution. However, aiming at the resolution, we should have our own righteous thoughts, in order to create the best chance for sentient beings to position themselves.
