  • Do Not Take Others’ Rights or Wrongs to Heart

    In fact, when things happen, if one’s heart is not at ease, conflict is likely to occur. It is this moment that offers us the opportunity to raise our xinxing. When we can put aside our egos, we can then help others quietly with the compassion and wisdom that Dafa cultivation empowers us with. We can do things based on being responsible to the Fa, to the universe and to all sentient beings. Every single thought that we have should consider sentient beings first.
  • Studying the Fa Well is the Fundamental Guarantee for Doing Everything Well

    It may sound mystical, but in my tight schedule, after I spent another two hours every day memorizing the Fa, my work of validating the Fa was not only not affected, it instead made a great leap forward because of the elevation of my individual cultivation level.
  • Purifying Myself in Falun Dafa

    After I studied the Fa, I knew that people have different predestined relationships. As a Dafa practitioner, wherever I am I should try to be a good person, be compassionate, treat everyone well, look within when faced with conflicts, consider others, correct our thoughts and align them with Dafa, validate Dafa in our work environment and save sentient beings.
  • The Things That Practitioners Do Are Not In Vain

    I also persuaded him to renounce his Party membership. What was unexpected was that he was so grateful that he hugged me and kept saying that I saved his life. He said that his wife is also a Falun Gong practitioner and he did not believe her although she had talked to him about it many times. This time, once I talked to him about it, he believed me.
  • Looking Inward Improves Our Environment

    I looked inward and tried to find what made me feel uncomfortable. I found that I still had human feelings. I was too anxious because she is my family member. I was not patient with her. Although I quoted Teacher's words, they lost power when I spoke them. She could not accept it. It was me who held an attitude.
  • Digging Out the Root of Selfishness

    Because my starting point was my individual cultivation status, I was trying to eliminate my attachments one by one. Therefore I was improving slowly. Of course we should cultivate ourselves. This is of prime importance and something we must do. But I thought those attachments were myself, and I was not able to get out of this trap.
  • A Promise to the Pavilion

    I really want to ask those killers who persecute Dafa disciples, “What on earth is wrong with being a good person? What’s wrong with having more and more good people?” Just because of one sinister person’s jealousy and fear a whole group of kind people have been shackled in a den of evil. My tears flowed without stopping…
  • We Must Truly Understand Dafa's Magnificence and Standards

    The examination results showed Daqiang unfit for detention; however, the police still attempted to find ways to have him admitted. Daqiang continued to shout, "Falun Dafa is Good." The more he shouted, the more compassion he had. Tears ran down his face. One policeman said, "Good job shouting! Your Master really saved you!" The camp officials firmly refused to accept Daqiang, despite the police plot to keep have him admitted.
  • Teacher Is by Our Side Every Minute

    One time, my mother went to buy a watermelon. The vendor was from the same town as my mother. There were too many people buying watermelons at the time, so she didn't have an opportunity to explain the truth to the vendor, but that evening my mother rode her bicycle back to his stall to talk to him. I was sending forth righteous thoughts. In a short while, he quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organizations.
  • Look Within to Improve the Family Cultivation Environment

    My husband had pain in his fingers and shoulders which no medication could help. I realized it must be because he had damaged Dafa books and materials. I told him what I thought, and asked him to write a statement expressing regret for having made mistakes due to believing in the CCP's lies, and a willingness of make it up to Dafa. Upon doing so, all his aches were gone!
  • A Young Practitioner Reflects on Other Young Practitioners

    In college I continued with my Fa-study, but I treated it like a task to be completed. I wasn't serious in following Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in my daily life. Like many college girls I got on the Internet, made love, and had fun with friends. I did tell my boyfriend about Dafa and got him to make the three withdrawals, but I did it in an everyday person's way. I didn't give him the opportunity to appreciate Dafa.
  • Reciting "Falun Dafa Is Good" Brings Benefits

    She was in so much pain that she didn't want to live anymore. I told her to recite, "Falun Dafa is good. Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good." Her mother also agreed to have her recite it and led her daughter to follow. After three days, she was able to get out of bed and walk with her mother's support. The pain disappeared.
  • Forbearing in the Face of Adversity

    Today, I believe that to forbear does not mean giving the evil free rein. In the face of injustice, the forbearance of practitioners is manifested in not being moved by loss or gain of personal interests, but it absolutely doesn't mean giving up everything in this world, much less resigning oneself to adversity.
  • Openly and Nobly Clarifying the Truth

    When I used to clarify the truth about the persecution of falun gong in China I dared not tell others that I was a Falun Gong practitioner, in order to protect myself and ensure my safety. Later, one experience helped me to enlighten that this was a faulty notion.
  • My Life Has Been Fundamentally Changed

    I have studied the Fa (the teachings of Falun Gong) and done the five exercises every day since starting the practice. I also watch Master's videos, and I have been getting better and better every day. Through studying the Fa, I gradually came to understand the dilemmas that I encountered, and my xinxing (heart and mind character) improved as well.
