  • Lessons Learned Studying Teacher's New Article, "Again Wishing a Complete Success to the European Fa Conference"

    In this new article, I can sense Teacher's eagerness and the urgency regarding this matter. In the meagre time that remains, we shall, through this conference, form a strong and indestructible one body. In the meantime, we shall try to influence those practitioners who are still not diligent to overcome their difficulties and rise above being human. Let us make our cultivation environment a pure land where practitioners can share and elevate together
  • My Understanding of "Cultivating while Conforming to Everyday Society"

    It seems that because some practitioners, including myself, didn't have a clear understanding of the Fa, we frequently became excited while chatting. When China was mentioned, we criticized and talked about many things in China that we felt were not good. This gives people the impression that "Falun Gong doesn't love China." Not only that, once we start talking about some of the ugly news in China, we forget that we are here to save sentient beings.
  • Master's Boundless Compassion

    I exchanged my confused thoughts with a practitioner who came to pick up materials. This practitioner told me there was no requirement as to quantity, and I could just do as much as I could. Having heard this I felt less burdened but thought about it later and realized: What I'm doing is to offer sentient beings salvation. What am I afraid of? Isn't fear a reflection of ego? When I enlightened to the Fa principles, I let go of the fear once more, and the interference also stopped, and I began to make more and more materials.
  • How I Clarify the Facts at Work

    He was moved by what I said, and replied, "I shall treat you like I always do. Thank you for telling me so much. I am willing to withdraw." Later, I continued to pass on fact sheets to him and he was willing to take them. He told me, "In the hallway of the building in which I live someone wrote, 'The Chinese Communist Party is not China. Being faithful to the CCP is not equal to being faithful to China.' I think it makes sense." I was overjoyed to hear him say that. Now, he has read Zhuan Falun three times.
  • The Power of Compassion

    As I hadn't handed out any materials on the subway for a long time, this little task seemed as hard as the first time I made truth-clarification phone calls to China. I reminded myself that my fear was my lack of compassion for saving sentient beings. When I finally overcame my fear, my compassion arose and I said "hello" and gave to him my first 2009 show flier. The man read the flier carefully.
  • Looking Within All the Time Is a Crucial Method to Improve Ourselves

    Recently when my colleague was drunk, he came up to me and said, "I am better than you." At that time I was angry and I thought, "Do you have any qualifications to even compete with me?" I just ignored him and I refused to even look at him. Each time I saw him drunk, I would gloat and I felt no compassion or mercy for him. Today I realize that such bad thoughts are terrible! Before I looked within I felt that I was so superior and good. But after looking within I found so many attachments and bad substances.
  • Sentient Beings Are Longing for the Truth

    She took out a copy of the Nine Commentaries, an amulet, and other materials from her bag and gave them to him. He accepted them gladly and said, "I am so fortunate. This protective amulet is so beautiful. It's great!" He asked for several more so that he could share them with his co-workers.
  • Thoughts on Shopping

    For the last nine years, I have followed these "shopping standards." In all seasons but summer, I wear the same pair of shoes. It is not that Falun Dafa practitioners are impoverished. With the exception of basic necessities, we spend all of our income on truth-clarification projects. That is why we have been able to persevere for these nine years and have never stopped working. Every practitioner is doing the same.

  • "I Wouldn't Do It Even if You Gave Me 1000 Yuan"

    The neighbor replied, "He is a good person. I have never seen see him do anything wrong." The policeman said, "If you see him go out to clarify the truth, call the police, and you will be rewarded 1000 yuan." The neighbor replied, "He is a good person. He has done nothing wrong. I wouldn't do it even if you did give me 1000 yuan."
  • Cultivating Compassion in Dafa

    Dafa is harmonizing. We should harmonize our families, the cultivation environment we are in contact with everyday. Through Fa-study, I realized that I should be even more compassionate to my family members because they are closest to me. Why did we all end up in this big family? It was because of our prehistoric vows that we would re-connect with one another when Dafa was introduced to the world.
  • Enlightening to the Importance of Every Single Thought

    Actually, the point was that I failed to look within at all times. When unrighteous thoughts surfaced, I didn't measure it against Dafa, and, as a result, it caused interference in my cultivation. Even though I have now come to this understanding through cultivation, I still must not be relaxed with my thoughts, because bad thoughts may easily slip into my mind.
  • Experiencing Dafa's Miracles

    After that day, my wife and I read "Zhuan Falun" and listened to Teacher's 9-day audio lectures. We also conducted ourselves according to the standard of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. On one occasion, my wife fell asleep while she was reading Zhuan Falun. The next day, she told me that Teacher had taught her the lectures all night, and that the lectures were the same as Teacher's 9-day lectures. Teacher also told her how to cultivate her xinxing (character) and how to be a good person.
  • "Master, I Finally Found You"

    On January 29, 1998, I borrowed a set of Dafa books from a friend. I first read Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa, and I couldn't hold back my tears. I was surprised and happy. I called from my heart, "Master, I finally found you." It was like a child seeing his parents for for the first time after many years. With happiness and tears, I read the book without feeling tired until two or three o'clock in the morning.
  • A Comfortable Cultivation Environment is Created by Righteous Minds

    Once, a neighbour wanted to use our apartment while my family was away on a trip. I said, "I have no requests except that you need to burn incense to my Teacher every day." She agreed, and when I returned she told me, "Not only did I burn incense every day, but I also bought the best fruits to respect him." I was moved to tears. I was in tears because I was moved to see the lives wakening under the evil clouds. I was also in tears because I felt sorry for those who were still lost because of the CCP.
