Practitioner Forum, Benefits from the Practice

2017 European Fa Conference | 2016 European Fa Conference | 2015 European Fa Conference | 2014 European Fa Conference | 2013 European Fa Conference

  • Two Practitioners from Qixia City, Shandong Province, Share Their Cultivation Experiences

    She said, "Lower your voice! Lower your voice!" When I finished the first lecture I asked her if she could understand it. She said that she could. I asked her why she no longer asked me to lower my voice. She said, "It is a good thing. We do not need to be nervous."
  • "Looking Inward" is a Cultivation Tool, and Should Not Become a Catch Phrase

    However, we all forget one critical thing--that "looking inward" is the way to truly cultivate ourselves. Looking inward is the process of cultivation and of assimilating ourselves into Dafa. Thus, "looking inward" should not become a catch phrase. It wouldn't work if we only talked about "looking inward" and "exposing our human attachments."
  • Responsibilities

    Before, I forced myself to clarify the truth, distribute materials, and save people, in order to remove my attachments and pursuits. Now, it's totally different. We are Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples. We have huge responsibilities. We must be responsible to the Fa, the cosmos, sentient beings, and the future.
  • The Wonders of Falun Dafa

    I have greatly benefited from Dafa in more ways than I can say. For one thing, compared to my peers, I look very healthy and young. People who know me all compliment me on my youthful appearance. I found this was a perfect opportunity to dispel people's misconceptions about Falun Gong and ultimately save them.
  • Reading the Fa with a Calm Mind

    The difference now is that I read the book with a calm mind and focus on each word and each sentence. When I do not understand something, I read the same sentence again and again, until I understand the principles corresponding to my level, before I move on. I am very attentive and not absent-minded at all, nor do I think about other things.
  • Learn to Give Up Attachments

    On our path of cultivation, there is little time to try again. We should not waste any time available to us. When our main consciousnesses is strong, we can really feel that bad things that we do are sins. We should always remind ourselves and cultivate more diligently within the time left.
  • Human Thoughts or Divine Thoughts

    Cultivation is the process of human and divine thoughts rising up in turn. When the divine thoughts are strong, things go smoothly, and when human thoughts take over, there is interference. The divine thoughts come from our Fa study and cultivation. When we cultivate away human thoughts and strengthen our divine thoughts, that is thinking righteously.
  • Get Rid of Human Attachments and Interference Will be Automatically Eliminated

    So why do I still have attachments to the human world, especially to resentment, competitiveness, suspicion, and jealousy? I looked inwards and realized I had been studying the Fa as a formality, but not learning it from my heart.
  • Stories from Prison

    Before his departure, he said to me sincerely, "I will practice Falun Gong after I am released." He was sentenced to three years of imprisonment, and he knew that my term was four years. He asked me to go to his home to teach him Falun Gong, and gave me his home address. I agreed, thinking that one more person would obtain the Fa.
  • Using Righteous Thoughts to Look at Things That Happen to Us

    After my release, I took every opportunity to study the Fa. I managed to find a copy of Master's "Fa Teaching at the 2008 New York Conference." I studied this lecture repeatedly and transcribed it four times. Now I feel changes in my body every day. Master often gives me hints in my dreams, reminding me to look inward and strive forward diligently.
  • Ridding Myself of Character Flaws While Clarifying Facts of Falun Dafa

    Several days later, we had another meeting. Again, I told him the mighty power of Falun Dafa and explained the karmic relationships between people. I answered some of his questions and read Master's articles to him. He expressed his respect for Dafa and withdrew from the CCP. I was pleased that his being was saved.
  • Manifesting Dafa's Glory at Work

    The kindness strengthened through practising cultivation enables me to always think of the clients and not scheme for my own personal interests. Many clients have become my friends. They know the truth about Dafa, and many have quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations.
  • Cultivation Requires Perseverance

    When there is a period of slacking off and one is in low spirits, we should be alert and understand that this is exactly the moment when the righteous (Buddha nature) and the evil (demonic nature) are battling in our own dimension. It is also the time when we make our choices. It is completely up to us what path we choose.
  • Validating the Fa with Calm and Rational Minds

    We don't need to have the exact same thoughts as others during our cultivation. It is good to have a normal communication and sharing. It helps us to see our own shortcomings. But it isn't good to have closed minds and hold stubbornly to our own opinions, or quote Teacher's sentences with our own attachments as proof of our opinions.
  • What does it mean to be a divine being?

    When we do things, we must be considerate toward others. This might even be used as an example for future generations. That is because everything we do in a righteous way will be left for future generations, and it is for them to follow and will be used as an example.
