By Dafa Practitioners in Taipei, Taiwan

In order to improve the physical and mental health of residents in Jungjeng and Wanhua Districts, on the night of August 25, 2002, Falun Dafa practitioners held a "Health and Life Lecture" at the Wanqing District Citizen Activity Center of Shoudeli, Wanhua District, Taipei City. Dafa practitioner Doctor Hu Naiwen from Tongdetang (a Chinese Herbal Pharmacy) gave a speech that helped the residents recognize the close relationship between "upgrading morality and physical health."

In the lecture room on the 2nd floor, more than 30 seats were occupied, and more chairs had to be placed in the corridor. A Falun Gong movie, "The Path to One's Original True Self" was shown first. The harmonious and peaceful exercise scenes and the words full of profound meaning and wisdom quoted from Zhuan Falun touched the hearts of the audience. The movie gave the audience a brief introduction that Falun Gong is a cultivation practice of both mind and body. Cultivators must follow the highest standard of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," and constantly improve their Xinxing [translation - moral character, mind or heart nature] and moral standard.

After showing the movie, Doctor Hu Naiwen explained the relationship between Xinxing improvement and physical health. He first analysed that the cause of illness is not only because of elements in the external environment, but also due to internal unkind intentions. All thoughts and intentions that do not conform to the standard of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" will affect our physical health. He gave examples from his own life before practicing Falun Dafa and examples of average patients. For example: when feeling pain at a certain part of the body, a person might think, "Is it cancer?" Because he had this ill thought, his condition would become worse. The audience enjoyed hearing these interesting examples, and nodded to express their agreement.

Doctor Hu gave another example of a scientific experiment called "Water Crystal," to illustrate that good intentions can make water form beautiful crystals, while bad intentions would make the water unable to form crystals. Inasmuch as the majority of our bodies are composed of water, if we do not have good Xinxing or if we fail to conduct ourselves according to "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," we will inevitably have various illnesses. Therefore, in the course of "cultivation," besides doing the exercises, the focus is to cultivate our Xinxing and upgrade our morality. Doctor Hu talked further about the tremendous changes in himself and other fellow practitioners after their cultivation, and the audience gained a deeper understanding of Dafa's magnificence.

After the lecture, the residents surrounded Doctor Hu and asked many questions. More than ten residents asked for information about practice sites, and learned to practice the exercises on the spot. Walking out of the lecture room, the people's hearts were as clear as the bright moon in the cloudless night sky.
