The literal meaning of “Validation” is to prove genuineness. When Falun Dafa practitioners validate the Fa1 they are doing so to prove to the people in the world the truthfulness, wonderfulness and magnificence of Falun Dafa by our words and deeds and at the same time, to expose the lies being spread by former Chinese President Jiang Zemin and his clique.
After studying Master’s2 lecture in Chicago in 2004, I enlightened to a different aspect with regards to Fa-validation. Master emphasised again that what Falun Dafa practitioners are doing today will be a reference left for the future. Master said,
“Each Dafa disciple has to make and complete his own path, and your paths in cultivation are all different; in other words, each person’s cultivation path is different. All of the future states of the various kinds of beings that are at different levels of the cosmos might manifest in you to a certain extent, so it all depends on whether the paths you yourselves walk in validating the Fa are straight, good, and will work. Factors this huge are involved.” (Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Chicago Conference)
I suddenly realised the process that Dafa practitioners validate the Fa is the same as the process through which we are enlightened to our own Fa, enabling us to reach consummation. Just like Shakyamuni enlightened to his principles of “Precept, Samadhi, Wisdom”. Every Falun Dafa practitioner can also be enlightened to his own principles from what he has grasped from the boundless Dafa3. Therefore, we can establish various cultivation ways for the future, and those Dafa practitioners who can truly consummate are the founders of these cultivation ways.
I also realised that if the principles of the cosmos were like a pyramid, “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance” would sit at the pinnacle, immediately followed by the principles enlightened to by those Fa-rectification period Dafa practitioners. Why do I believe that the future positions of Dafa practitioners will be higher than those of the highest gods who will have assimilated to Dafa in the heavens? It is because we are Fa-rectification period practitioners that Master has saved in person, and we are here at the same time as the Fa-rectification. Master said,
“The beings treated with benevolent solutions have been assimilated to the Fa by the best method, and Dafa practitioners are going through something ever better than a benevolent solution, because Dafa practitioners are cultivating actively, and cultivating themselves toward the future, which is more precious than being benevolently resolved.” (Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Western U.S. Fa Conference)
“All of the persecution and pain that Dafa practitioners have been subjected to during this persecution will result in greater glory being bestowed upon Dafa practitioners in history’s future. That kind of glory is something that has never existed for any of the beings in the cosmos since the beginning of time, because Dafa practitioners are practitioners forged by Dafa during the Fa-rectification period and they are part of the Fa-rectification. This affair itself has raised Dafa practitioners to a very high position. What’s more, they are Dafa practitioners who are directly saved by Master.” (Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Chicago Conference)
After understanding this principle, we have an even clearer comprehension of the important responsibility that we have to bear. Our cultivation is directly associated with the safety of the future cosmos. We have to be diligent in our cultivation. We are truly Gods who have come to this world to validate the Fa. What is there to be afraid of?
1. Fa - Universal law, the teachings of Falun Gong
2. Master - Respectfully referring to the founder of Falun Gong, Mr Li Hongzhi
3. Dafa - Great Law
