  • Letting Go of Attachments and Doing Well During the Final Stage

    I could not step forward because of fear. What was I afraid of? I was afraid of losing my job, losing the benefits of work, losing my comfortable life and the income that my family depended on. And I was afraid that my family would suffer because of me. However, what was actually blocking me? Weren't those just attachments to fame, money and qing?
  • Clarifying the Truth and Validating the Fa by Singing

    "Only because saying something from the bottom of my heart, Falun Dafa is being wronged, in order not to have sentient beings suffer again, I'd like to spread the truth to the world". While singing this song my tears began to come out and roll down my face as I looked at them. I saw their eyes become red, and many of them also shed tears. I felt a great sense of relief at that time after seeing that they were completely moved.
  • Consider Others First Before Any Action

    If I am able to consistently consider others' concerns first, then I will not conform to everyday people's way of thinking. As you can see, selfishness cannot be eliminated just by speaking about it; we must follow through in our actions. To reach a state of consideration for others, we must practice consideration in daily life, a little at a time. Always considering others without our own notions and thoughts--that is how to remain calm
  • Eliminating Our Laziness

    Laziness makes people pursue gains without being willing to go through hardships. Most of the people with this attachment tend to say, "It's good enough." They always find excuses for not taking action. They put more emphasis on their own personal situations. Even when they take action, they only try to finish the immediate task at hand and therefore don't put their hearts into it
  • The Desperation of the CCP as Reflected in the "Olympic Torch Relay" in Kaifeng City, Henan Province

    Falun Gong practitioners were not allowed to leave their homes, and if they had to, they were "accompanied" by several people assigned to monitor them. Some practitioners were even monitored before the torch arrived, and were detained in an "office" by the CCP personnel who told them clearly that they would be allowed to go home only after the "Olympic torch" relay was over. Some even went so far as to group-detain practitioners in the Party School in the northern suburbs of Kaifeng City.
  • Witnessing the Power of Dafa

    Learning of the situation, "auntie" from across the desk said, "No way. We have to save him, and by no means can we let them amputate his arm. How would he do the exercises then? How would your family face him in the future? You have to call your parents-in-law and his wife. You have to save him. Only Master Li can save him. Why don't I go visit your uncle with you?"
  • Predestined Relationship--A Western Practitioner's Experience Sharing

    Since we live near the airport many Chinese tourists pass through here. Recently, I have been going there frequently and holding up a banner that says "Falun Dafa has spread throughout the world." I stand with my banner in the arrivals area and I can see that almost everyone looks at the banner, and many people read what it says out loud for others to hear.
  • The CCP's Persecution Makes it Hard for Sports Fans to Appreciate the Olympic Games

    Canadian newspaper Calgary Herald published a letter from reader Sanat. K. Das on August 13, 2008. He said that he found it hard to appreciate the Olympic Games this year because in his mind there were always scenes of Falun Gong practitioners having their organs harvested and innocent people being tortured and killed.
  • In My 60s I Learned How to Operate a Computer to Help People Know the Truth

    "Have righteous thoughts! However you think something should be handled, just go ahead and do it, and when you run into problems you will naturally know how to solve them. If your righteous thoughts are strong, everything will work out smoothly and it's guaranteed you'll do well." (Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference)
  • Establish Fa Study Sites with Compassion

    Therefore, I suggested that practitioners who are in charge of Fa study sites meet once a month to study the Fa and share experiences together, as well as solve problems which may arise in their respective Fa study site. The next person's things are my things, and my things are his things, because we are of one body. I enlightened that I must treat my fellow practitioners compassionately, as I treat all sentient beings.
  • Older Lady Regains Her Eyesight

    In 2003, one of her relatives who is a practitioner told her the truth about Falun Gong. She very much believed what she was told and sympathized with the Dafa disciples, who were being tragically persecuted. She was glad to accept the truth and sincerely recited, "Falun Gong is good," and "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance are good."
  • Clarifying the Truth With Songs at Tourist Spots in Kular Lumpur

    After the "Heaven Will Eliminate the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) March" was published, several of us began learning the song. Whenever we faced difficulties while putting up display boards or handing out fliers, we began singing this song. After we finished singing, other practitioners read the lyrics out loud which formed a very strong righteous field. Many tourists stopped and looked at us, and seemed completely entranced by the wonderful melody and magnificent lyrics!
  • With Compassion to Save People, Truth-Clarification Materials Will Be Effective

    A practitioner was going home around noon one day when she passed a kiosk, and bought an ice-cream. The owner of the kiosk was watching a truth-clarification video using a small DVD player. The practitioner asked her where she got the disc. The owner said that someone brought it to her home. This practitioner had never brought truth-clarification material to people's homes in the city, so the owner must have received the disc from someone else, maybe an ordinary person.
  • The Danger of Allowing Attachments to Grow

    When others were going through tribulations, my uncultivated speech did not give them any support; it instead created bigger tribulations for them. Therefore, cultivation of speech is very advantageous with no shortcomings for either others and myself. I must truly pay great effort to cultivating my speech well.
  • Overseas Phone Calls Frighten the Evil

    Some people that we called did not want to listen, or at first would say that the CCP is not that bad. However, remembering our mission, and maintaining our firm righteous thoughts, compassion, and the perseverance that we truly want to save them, we continue clarifying the truth to them. Finally they would agree with us; and some said they would quit the CCP. At moments like these, we bust into tears of joy.
