Practitioners’ Forum, Benefits from the Practice
I am a Falun Gong practitioner from Sweden and obtained the Fa in 2008. Two years ago, I came to Sweden by Master's arrangement. Before that I pretty much practised Falun Gong on my own in China. In Sweden my cultivation environment changed dramatically, in that I was suddenly placed in an environment where there were so many fellow practitioners. Now I would like to share with you about my last two years’ cultivation experience.
When I was first nominated to become a coordinator, I felt very confused, because I saw various complicated relationships among fellow practitioners that had exhausted many Dafa coordinators. I was afraid that my cultivation would be affected when I was involved in such a situation. In addition, the Nordic Epoch Times consists of four countries: Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and each of them has its own local coordinator and Dafa Association, which would be very complicated to coordinate.
I’m a practitioner from Serbia. I joined the Free China project as country coordinator and have since then experienced many wonderful things. This is my story about the first private screening for Friends of Falun Gong and VIPs held in Serbia's capital, Belgrade, and my insights during the process.
I'm a disciple from Romania. We had Shen Yun in 2008 and it was a great success. We had a full house in the theatre, a very pleased and enthusiastic audience, and the survey showed well over 90% of very satisfied viewers. The CCP was scared of this success in an ex-communist country so they stepped up their pressure and our government seemed to give in. In the years after that when we wanted to host Shen Yun, we had different kinds of interference from our own government.
I’m a little Dafa disciple in Norway. My name is Fayuan, I’m going to be 10 years old in a few days time. Today I’d like to share with you my experience in making phone calls to save beings on the RTC platform’s little Dafa disciple team.
For Shen Yun 2013 in the Netherlands, I coordinated the door-to-door leaflet mailing, like I did in previous years. I searched for rich areas, drew maps and divided them among practitioners. On the weekends I took practitioners to those areas in my car to deliver flyers. When they were finished with that area, they would call me and I would take them to another area.
I had already created an idea about what I could do and it prevented me from accepting other suggestions. Besides, I had never done such kind of work before – making phone calls – so it was something new and unknown to me. However, that is exactly what made it a wonderful opportunity to ascend. I went to the practitioner who took the task and offered my help.
Through my husband I obtained Dafa. He invited me to join the local Fa-study group. Initially I could feel that group Fa study and experience sharing among practitioners benefited me a lot. Now I have cultivated myself for a period of time, I can still feel the help to my individual cultivation brought about by group Fa study.
In Hungary, I am the responsible person for the Dafa Association. I would really like to do my part well and help the cooperation between practitioners in our country. In past years I could only do a few things regarding our activities, since I was at home with my baby boy, but now he is almost three years old.
I am a practitioner from Greece. I started practising Falun Gong nine months ago. A series of events that happened one after the other led me to Falun Dafa: As far as I can remember, I have had questions about why I am here, where I came from, where are we going after death, etc.
I am a practitioner from France. I would like to share the experience of forming a one-body during Shen Yun promotions in the past 3 years.
I am a Falun Dafa practitioner from Finland and I began to cultivate more than ten years ago. There were not so many practitioners when I started the practice, so right from the start it was only natural the practitioners participated in multiple projects, each according to their capabilities.
Some time ago, I got the chance to save sentient beings through screening of “Free China” in Denmark. The cooperation and coordination of the project has been really well and the response has generally been positive and touching. To me it has been a giant privilege to show the film, to tell the truth about the persecution and to tell about Dafa.
That evening, when I recognised my shortcoming, I could take the pain when sitting in the Lotus position. Before, I could only stand 2 minutes of pain. Suddenly I sat there for 30 minutes and the pain receded a little after a while.
When selling tickets in those days we often felt the encouragement and reinforcement from Master. We were selling tickets from 10:00 am to 8pm. On the first day we found there were more people in the shopping centre in the morning and less people in the afternoon. So we decided to go there one hour earlier, and come back one hour earlier.
