  • On "Trying to Help the Shoots Grow by Pulling Them Upwards"

    As for new practitioners, we must encourage them to study the Fa a lot and do the exercises well. We especially need to help them to learn to look inward and cultivate themselves as soon as possible, instead of dragging them too quickly into doing all kinds of activities that should be done by Fa-rectification period Dafa practitioners.
  • Clarifying the Truth on a High School Campus

    At present, every school is a brainwashing base for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Not only are teachers spreading the CCP propaganda, many students are also promoting violence and a fighting mentality. This situation requires practitioners in schools to seize every opportunity to get rid of the CCP spectre and create a good environment to save sentient beings.
  • Give Up the Attachment First

    Non-practitioners cannot understand the reason. They don't understand the fundamentals of a spiritual belief, so they don't know where such a power comes from. We never talk about worrying over every situation or planning each step. As genuine cultivators, we just do whatever we should do and try to do it well.
  • Be Part of the Fa in Everything We Do

    Most importantly, I maintained a wonderful relationship with my neighbours and the people I knew. Everything I do and say represents the image of Falun Dafa. My neighbours told me, "If it weren't for the persecution, we'd all practice Falun Dafa with you."
  • Rid of the Notion that We Need to First Protect Ourselves

    Therefore, during our cultivation, we need to base ourselves on the Fa and position ourselves correctly. In other words, we need to require ourselves to act as Fa-rectification disciples would act. Otherwise, without strong righteous thoughts, we won't be able to see through this notion. We could even take that notion as our own thoughts.
  • Set a Fixed Time for Fa Study and Make It a Priority

    As a Dafa practitioner, studying the Fa well is the key to one's improvement. It is a prerequisite for sending righteous thoughts and for clarifying the truth well. I would like to suggest that all practitioners set a fixed time for Fa study, as we have done for practicing the exercises.
  • Up and Compensating for Losses

    Practitioners are coerced under brainwashing and torture to write "Repentance Statement," "Guarantee Statement" or 'Dissociation Statement" as proof that they have given up their belief. In the statement, the practitioner is forced to admit remorse for practicing Falun Gong, promise to give up Falun Gong, and never again associate with other practitioners or go to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong.
  • Opportunities to Achieve Good Results in Clarifying the Truth

    When the cashier gave them change, one of them got a yuan bill with a truth-clarification message on it. I noticed that he readily held up the bill in the air, looked around, and then read aloud, "Heaven is eliminating the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Withdraw from the CCP to have a safe life!" Other customers heard him, and many walked over to take a look.
  • The More We Memorize the Fa, the Faster We Rise in Levels

    Sometimes, I had to spend one or two days to memorize just one complete sentence of the Fa. Regardless of how long it took, I memorized one sentence, then onto the next, then the third, and then tried it again from the first sentence right through the third. In so doing, I finally finished memorizing the first chapter within one year.
  • Enabling Government Officials to Understand Morality

    What would happen to the entrenched, putrefied evil Party if Truth, Compassion and Tolerance permeated the Chinese people’s minds? I think people can see how the Communist Party would consider that dangerous. What would happen to all of the world’s deep-rooted selfish interests if people everywhere practiced Truth, Compassion and Tolerance?
  • Thoughts on Doing the Exercises Outdoors in China

    Doing the exercises openly is a way to validate the Fa, protect the Fa, give Dafa a position it deserves with openness and dignity, and express a truth to the world's people that Falun Dafa is good. The world needs Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
  • Granddaughter Came for the Fa

    She has given all her savings to the coordinator practitioner, 5 yuan the first time and 15 yuan another time. The practitioner said to her, "You're too young. The money is for you to buy snacks. You'd better ask your grandma to keep it for you." She said, "No, the money is for making truth-clarification materials and saving sentient beings. I will give it to no one else."
  • Myself Well When Talking to Students about Falun Gong

    After talking with him a few times with no improvement, one day I ordered him to stand outside the classroom. After that period was over, I talked to him. He said, "Teacher, if I were a policeman, I would arrest you right away. I want to report on you because you talk about Falun Gong in class. You are talking about politics."
  • Learning From Other Practitioners' Experiences

    I really want to live in every article that I read and translate; many times the feelings are so strong that my shoulders tremble because I admire the young, poor cultivators in China who save every penny to buy supplies to print truth-clarification materials. Many of them would rather be expelled from school than to have Dafa defamed, and many have become orphans because their parents have sacrificed their lives for Dafa.
  • Discussion on Responsibility

    I treated people according to ordinary people's mentality. I would treat a person well if he/she treats me well; otherwise I would treat them so-so. I lacked a compassionate mindset. Nevertheless, reading my colleagues' feedback created such a huge reaction in me. I really had a severe setback in my cultivation.
