  • Police Officers Are Also Lives Waiting to Be Saved

    In the kind of work I do, clarifying the truth requires efficiency and effectiveness. Sometimes I have only two or three minutes to clarify the truth. Although the time is limited and clarifying the truth is challenging within some time frames, we can still do a good job if we don't hold onto any human attachments.
  • Look Within and Let Go of Attachments

    Looking within made me aware that being afraid of being bothered is an attachment. This is a process in which we can improve. In addition, people observe everything we as practitioners do and how we act. People notice when we are able to follow the Fa and do well and they may even begin to practice.
  • Thoughts on Rescuing Thirteen Practitioners in Qingdao City

    I only cared about big events. Perhaps I did not care about isolated persecution cases and only cared about practitioners I knew. Perhaps I only cared about what was on the surface and got frustrated easily or complained about other practitioners not having righteous thoughts. All of my attachments were gaps. Every individual case of persecution is the persecution of our entire entity.
  • Cultivation Experience of Clarifying the Facts in Hong Kong

    Some practitioners dare not clarify the facts or do not know how to do it, so they hold the posters or send forth righteous thoughts. In my understanding, no matter what form they use, as long as they are there for saving sentient beings, they are adding a positive element to the one-body.
  • My Understanding of Benevolence

    While I was in college, I was fortunate to obtain Falun Dafa. The moment I finished reading Zhuan Falun, I immediately understood that this was what I had been waiting for. I was so excited. Since then, I have been following Master's teachings. Purifying my heart and soul and cultivating to become a selfless, altruistic and righteous enlightened being is the goal of my life.
  • A Small Difference On the Surface Can Mean a Big Difference in Realms for Cultivators

    This afternoon, another beautiful customer of mine that I know very well was quarrelling with my sales person about the price of a product. When she saw me, she grabbed my arms, leaned towards my body, and acted in an inappropriate manner. She kept calling me “brother” and asked me for a lower price. People all looked at me. Although I looked upright at that moment, in my heart I was hoping she would lean on my shoulder for a little longer.
  • Using Our Divine Side to Save More Sentient Beings

    There are many ways for us to save sentient beings, including distributing fliers; clarifying the truth face-to-face, over the phone, over or Internet; as well as promoting the Divine Performance Arts (DPA) shows. Still, many practitioners have this question: Why is it so difficult to encourage people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations?
  • Validating the Fa during Tribulations, Saving Sentient Beings

    My husband is an alcoholic. He is just like the person described by Teacher, who would not raise his rice bowl at a meal if there was no alcohol. When he was awake, he would say nothing no matter what you'd say to him. Once he was drunk he would start picking on me. Whether it was some unhappiness at work, or if he was mistreated somewhere else, he would come home and drink then start his brawl.
  • Seize the Opportunity to Save More Sentient Beings

    Sometimes I went on long-distance buses. Once, I was on one and started clarifying the truth to the driver and encouraging him to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). He then got rid of the portrait of Mao Zedong on his bus and replaced it with a Falun Gong talisman. I asked him to play a truth-clarification CD, and he played it twice for the customers on the bus. Everybody listened attentively.
  • Maturing Through Genuine Cultivation

    At least, now I know, as we have come to this day, when confronting any problem, as long as I can keep this thought-- "I am a Dafa practitioner", or "this is a good thing", or "I must meet the standard" and so on, then I will be able to do better than what I have done.
  • How I Became a Falun Dafa Waist-Drummer

    Excessive enthusiasm and exaggerated cheerfulness are but an obstacle, she said. They are qing (emotion/desire), something that interferes with and lowers the level. When qing is gone, compassion follows. When the artist is free of human emotion, his performance will not be that of a regular person but of a Falun Gong practitioner, saturated with gong.
  • Falun Gong Saved My Father

    He was very sad and said, "I want to quit my medications. Seems I am doomed to die." Several of us recommended that he start practicing Falun Gong. We told him that my mother, a practitioner, could teach him. We also asked him to recite the words, "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good."
  • A Visit to My Hometown in China

    There was a total of five adults. I immediately told them about Dafa and the persecution. I talked about the miracles of Dafa and gave them several sets of materials. I told them to recite those two lines. They all carefully put the amulets into their pockets and said that they would definitely recite "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Falun Dafa is good."
  • Helping to Introduce Falun Dafa in India

    . The presentation about the water crystal experiment caught the staff and students' attention. We subsequently gave a live exercise demonstration, and when it ended, our local practitioners and my family were presented a handkerchief with a young coconut on top of it, which was their traditional custom of honouring someone.
  • Purifying Myself While Reciting The Fa

    When memorizing the Fa, one cannot express any human thoughts, and the effect is more powerful when one fully concentrates on memorization. When I studied the Fa, I usually read two to three lectures a day. Previously when I memorized the Fa, I had the attachment of wanting to accomplish something fast. I thought that my progress was slow, and even though I tried twice, I did not persevere. This time, I memorized the lectures calmly when I had time, and I did not rush or become anxious.
