我们比我更强大
The Power of We Is Greater Than That of I

敬爱的师尊好,亲爱的同修大家好。
Dear respected Master, Dear fellow practitioners,

1.跳动音符放出震摄邪恶的光芒
1. Stirring notes radiate everywhere, frightening the evil

2006年天国乐团创办以来,从新西兰到纽约、从澳洲到香港,都可以见到天国乐团的足迹,它带给民众的震撼是前所未有的。就如同师父新经文《天国乐团》中提到:“法鼓法号显天威,去邪除恶唤回归,末世救人惊天地,法正乾坤放光辉”。
Since the Celestial Band was established in 2006, it has left footprints all around the world, from New Zealand to New York, from Australia to Hong Kong. The impact it has had on people is unprecedented. It is like what Master said in His recent article:
Divine Land Marching Band
Drums and horns of Fa display divine might
Purging all manner of evil,
     beckoning souls back to heaven
Heaven n’ earth are in awe
     as the Band saves lives at the end of time
Its glorious light shines
     in the cosmic Fa-rectification.

每到庆典和圣诞节前后就随着雄壮的乐音,东征西讨,常常在烈阳下或寒风中笛子吹不出声音时。就在心里默默的对我的法器说:”你要乖乖的跟我一起助师证法“希望把握每一次可以清除邪恶的机会。常常行进在大街小巷,两旁站满了观看游行队伍期盼的民众,当乐团奏出雄壮悠扬的乐音时,看到民众脸上绽放出喜悦与久违的神情,就会感到一股慈悲的力量回荡在音符跳跃的空气中,心里涌上感激之情。啊!这是师尊以音乐的形式来震摄邪恶救度迷中的世人。
Whenever a big celebration comes up, or it’s Christmas, majestic notes fly out and it’s a war on all fronts. Often we have to stand in the scorching sun or howling wind and the flute won’t sound. I quietly tell my instrument, “You be good and help me assist Master in Fa rectification,” and I hope that each time we can grasp the opportunity to eliminate the evil. Often we march through the streets, both sides lined with people watching our parade, filled with hope. When the band plays magnificent melodies, when I see people’s faces beaming with joy and that long-forgotten feeling, I feel a surge of compassionate energy resonate through the air and I am filled with gratitude. Oh! This is how Master uses different ways to frighten the evil and save people who are lost in a maze.

2.纯净的心
2.Pure heart

两年前,刚来雪梨不久,我们应邀前去支援新西兰天国乐团基督城的圣诞游行。我爱玩的心态超越了証法的初衷,把要用纯净的心态来祝师证法和救度众生的使命完全抛诸脑后,只想着去基督城时要游山玩水,果不其然干扰和麻烦马上找上门。在机场海关要入境时才发现拿到过期的新西兰护照,当天回家后认真想想自己在的动机归正心态后,第二天顺利坐上飞机跟上天国乐团的脚步。
Two years ago, not long after I came to Sydney, we went to Christchurch in New Zealand to be a part of the Christmas Parade. My attachment of wanting to play overrode my intention to validate the Fa. I left behind my pure heart to help Master in Fa rectification and my mission to save sentient beings. I only wanted to go on a sightseeing tour in Christchurch. Sure enough, interference and troubles immediately came knocking on the door. When I was going through customs at the airport, I realised that I’d brought my expired New Zealand passport. I went home that day and thought about my motives, and after correcting my state of mind, the next day I took a smooth flight to New Zealand to catch up with my fellow band members.

多年来在乐团排练常常听到的都是自己声音,因所吹奏乐器具高八度的特性。最近指挥老师的带领下,合奏时常常尽量去聆听其他声部的乐音,寻找共性。暗自期许自己奏出的每个音符都是正确的,才不会影响整体乐团的提升并且不凸显短笛的高音域并把奏出的旋律交织融和到整个乐曲中!随然在教室里跳动的音符是摸不到的,在排练民乐曲的强大正面的能量激荡著自身,每周排练后常让我感到全身都充满能量。什么样的声音可以感动人,是带着慈悲救人心念的音乐!干净强大的乐音是可以穿透人心!演出时在另外空间就如同原子弹扫过般,尘埃不起,邪恶尽除!
The sound of the piccolo is not as elegant and poetic as the flute. It is sharper, and has higher octaves. For many years, during band practice I could only hear the sound of my own instrument. Recently under the leadership of the teacher, I do my best to listen to other parts of the whole ensemble, and find the harmony. Sometimes I hear the beautiful consistent melody of the flute, and the splendid, mellow tone of the clarinet, sometimes I hear the resounding voice of the trumpet, the gentleness of the French horn, the grandness of the trombone, and richness of sousaphone. If I extend my ears further, I can hear the lively rhythm of the drums. Of course, sometimes I also hear unexpected wrong notes and Inharmonious sound amidst the music. Although the musical notes are intangible, during practice, the righteous energy of the music permeates my entire body. Often after band practice each week, I feel my whole body filled with energy. I quietly require myself to play each note correctly, so that I don’t affect the improvement of the whole band, so that I can showcase the high notes of the piccolo and the interwoven harmonies of the entire music piece. What kind of music can move people? It is music that carries the compassionate heart of saving people! Clean, powerful music can penetrate people’s hearts!

多年来很荣幸身为天国乐团的团员,希望每一次的演出都尽我最大的努力带着救人的心念和纯正的心态,以最佳的状态来展现天国乐团的天威!
I feel so lucky to have become a member of the Celestial Band over the years, I hope that each time we perform, I will do my absolute best to have a pure mind and the heart of saving others, and to demonstrate the divine magnificence of the Celestial Band!

想用这次机会感谢师尊运用天国乐团这样的形式让我们用跳跃的音符洪法与震摄邪恶,并感谢用心苦练为乐团付出的团员们!
I want to take this opportunity to thank Master for using the form of the Celestial Band to spread the Fa and shock the evil. And I’d also like to thank my fellow band members for their hard work and contribution!


3.神韵销售笔记
3.My diary of promoting Shen Yun

2015年的悉尼神韵演出整体销售成绩为85%,是非常值得高兴的事;也反映出我们在神韵推广的整体配合上的成效。在这项目中与不同团队合作是件和谐愉快的事情,销售经验和技巧中也在学习中不知不觉的成长与提高。即使如此,对于有缘却没有进场众生,师父在经文《大法弟子必须学法——二零一一年华盛顿特区法会讲法》中说:
In 2015, Sydney sold 85% of tickets for the Shen Yun shows, it’s something we should definitely be celebrating and it reflects on the cooperation of the whole body. It is delightful to be able to develop partnerships with other organisations, and as I gained more sales experience and sales tactics, I became more mature and improved unknowingly. Even so, for those predestined sentient beings who didn’t make it into the theatre, Master said in His recent article, Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa:

“本来在去年应该得救的人,却永远失去机会了,因为正法是不断的往前推,一步一步,到了一层那一层的人,上边到了哪个天国,到了哪一层天体,就是哪一层的人来看,下次那个座位是别人的不是他的。你们知道失去了多少生命?!看到那场上空着的座位,你们知道我啥感受?”
“Those who were originally meant to have been saved last year [by Shen Yun, but didn’t go], have lost the opportunity forever. That’s because Fa-rectification is unceasingly forging ahead, step by step, and when it arrives at one cosmic plane it is time for that level of people; when it reaches a certain heavenly kingdom above, or a certain layer of cosmic body, it is time for that group of people to come see [the show], and next time around [when Shen Yun performs], that seat will belong to someone else. Do you realize how many lives have been lost?! Do you know how I feel when I see those empty seats in the theater?”


希望与在座的同修今年一起努力让有缘的生命都可以走进神韵的场中。
I hope that this year we can work hard together to bring those predestined beings to Shen Yun.

商场上可以轻松的路过神韵销售点的有缘人交谈起来,但是卖票却不是容易的事。
At shopping centres, you can lightly chat to shoppers passing by the Shen Yun booth, but selling tickets is no easy feat.

记得在神韵推广第一级的考试中,考官对我的临场销售反应的建议是遇到有兴趣的人,紧接着做(订票)的手续。从(打开话题)到讲解神韵的演出内容到观众反馈,我都可以如数家珍地介绍给有缘的朋友,常常在交谈中该在哪个点顺势让对方订票上,我比较难突破后天的观念:恩,这位妈妈带着一个年幼的孩子可能很难抽身去看演出,或这位中国人口吻中透露著对神韵有不同的看法可能会排斥,还有商场销售点碰巧遇到工作的男同事似乎对于舞蹈艺术不是那么感兴趣。但最后你会惊奇的发现真正去看演出的人都是谁—那可是师尊安排好的众生,不是我的后天的观念可以挡住的有缘人啊。
I remember during the Shen Yun promotion level 1  test, the examiner suggested that when you meet a person who’s interested in Shen Yun, you have to then close the deal. From breaking the ice, to talking about the Shen Yun performances and audience feedback, I can closely introduce the show to predestined people. During the conversation, when the other party is about to buy tickets, I have notion which I find difficult to break through, and think, “Oh, it might be difficult for this mother and child to go see the show, or the tone of this Chinese person shows that he has a different view about Shen Yun and maybe he will reject it. And I also happened to bump into one of my male colleagues who didn’t seem too interested in the show. But eventually you will be surprised to discover who really went to see the show – those are the sentient beings arranged by Master, my postnatal notions can’t obstruct those predestined people from going.

记得今年神韵演出完后,跟我年龄相近的一位男同事看到我,满脸堆满笑容的说:“Michelle!我去看了神韵表演,我喜欢这场演出,尤其是男生用道具跳的那段舞”这段表演或许在他漫长的生命中只占了一眨眼的时间,可是对他真正的生命意义重大,在迷中的世人怎么能知道呢?
I remember after the Shen Yun shows finished this year, a male colleague who was about my age, smiled and said: “Michelle! I went to see Shen Yun, I really liked the show, especially the one with the male dancers.” This performance might have only occupied a brief moment in his lifetime, but it has significant meaning to his life, how can people lost in a maze, know this?

而对师尊把真正法理都传给我们的大法弟子,知道神韵是另一种符合世间的形式来救人,我们当然要屏除自己一切的观念怀着慈悲心态和救人的念头,鼓励但不施予压力(是神韵的魅力吸引民众想来认识,而非销售员放低身段追着发传单求着买票),给顾客最大方便并想方设法为对方排除困难(如提供中文订票热线,神韵网址),让他们可以走进这个神佛救人的场,即使顾客说会回家订票,我们强大的意念就要相信他们会这样去做(并在销售点尽量帮忙排除疑难杂症,如交通路线、停车、拿票等等),大多主流社会人士习惯于上网订票(可预先浏览同样票价还有哪些最好的座位),相信等我们符合专业水准都做到位了,有缘人也会找到属于自己的座位。
Master has imparted the righteous Fa principles to Dafa disciples, and as Dafa disciples, we know that Shen Yun is saving people in a way that conforms to the world, so we of course need to set aside any notions and have a compassionate mind and the thought to save people. We must encourage, but not pressure people, it’s the mesmerising beauty that attracts people to discover Shen Yun, rather than chasing people about with flyers and begging them to buy tickets like a salesman. We must make it as easy as possible for the customer, for example, providing details of the Chinese sales hotline, and the Shen Yun website, to enable them to enter the theatre where gods and buddhas are saving people. Even if the customer says that they’ll buy tickets then they get home, we must strongly believe that they will do this, and try to help them resolve any difficulties, for example, how to get there, parking, how to pick up tickets, etc. The majority of people in the mainstream society are used to buying tickets online (you can help them browse the best tickets available for a particular price range, and help them choose the best seats). I believe that when we have done everything according to a professional standard, predestined people will find their place.

记得有一次在媒体的销售会议中提到,做到三件事神就会给钱(意即销售业绩就会扶摇直上),‘修炼、用心、救人’。我想这也是身为神韵推广的销售员需要具备的三个要素。
I remember that in one of the media meetings, they said that when you do well with the three things, the gods will give you money, meaning that sales will skyrocket. “Cultivate, do things wholeheartedly, and save people”. I think that these are also elements that Shen Yun promotions people needed to have.

4.同修给我上了一课
4.Fellow practitioners taught me a lesson

有次因人手不足临时到一家Westfield商场支援,一去看到每位服务人员都在招待客人,有解说、有订票、有导览神韵画册的,还有在一旁驻足观看的民众,整个场面热闹和谐可见一斑。我都被他们创造出来的磁场所吸引了,何况是路过的民众呢?事后跟同修求教,他们在商场中的神韵推广售票点上,仪表穿着专业得体先不说,笑容可掬让人想亲近却不带压迫感,在跟有兴趣的民众交谈中先了解对方,当在详细的介绍后对方提出疑问我们的同修会钜细靡遗的耐心的、一一帮对方排除走进神韵大门的阻碍,例如有位先生再热心的销售员细心介绍下,愿意先打电话问太太当下订票,手机却不在身边,我们同修买上奉上手机借对方,看到我们同修专业和认真的态度,很多人都在无后顾之忧后很快的订票,也买了通往未来的门票!我还发现,专业是体现在细节上,这个售票点不但资料齐全,销售人员对产品的知识背得滚瓜烂熟(记得有一次在同修用英文给路过小朋友解释完手册里木兰和岳飞的故事后,家长表现出对中华文化的兴趣后就订票了),人员对订票操作程序也了若指掌(从没有手忙脚乱耽误客人时间的囧状),用心把每件事做到最好,神佛也会帮我们开路。
Once, I was called to Burwood shopping centre at the last minute due to shortage of hands, as soon as I got there I saw each and every salesperson looking after customers, some explaining the show, some selling tickets, some browsing the Shen Yun picture album with customers, and there were also passersby who gathered to watch. The entire field was lively and harmonious. If even I was attracted by the energy field, what about the people passing by? Afterwards I asked the Perth and Taiwanese practitioners to teach me how to do it. I won’t mention their professional, neat and tidy appearance, but their smiles, and pleasant nature attracted people to come closer, but not feel pressured. When they met people who expressed interest, they first try to understand the other party. After they introduce Shen Yun in detail, and the customer has questions, our practitioners very patiently help them understand and one by one remove the obstacles that stop people from seeing the show. For example, thanks to the thoughtful introduction by an enthusiastic salesperson, one gentleman was willing to call his wife to ask if he could book tickets. He didn’t have his phone with him, our practitioner immediately picked up his phone and called the gentleman’s wife. Seeing the professionalism and conscientious attitude of this practitioner, many people bought tickets without a single worry, they bought a ticket enabling them to head towards the future! I also realised that professionalism is in the details. This ticket selling both is not only stocked with Shen Yun promotional materials, the product knowledge of the salespeople is so good that they can recite the information (I remember once a practitioner told the story of Mulan and Yue Fei to a child passing by, and afterwards the parents booked tickets after expressing their interest in Chinese culture). Our sales staff really understood the procedures in selling tickets, so that the process was smooth and didn’t waste the customer’s time. They put in all their efforts to do the best in every single thing. The gods and buddhas will also help us pave the road.

在当天,还有一桩巧妙的安排,一位白发苍苍的老太太走过停下脚步并对着正要订票的客人说:我昨天去看了这个表演,真是太棒了,是值得去看的!我当时马上就感动的动了欢喜心:为一位被救度和另一位即将被救度的生命高兴。
That day, there was a funny arrangement, an elderly lady stopped by and said to the customer who was about to buy tickets, I saw this show yesterday, it is absolutely amazing, it’s definitely worth seeing! I was so happy for the sentient being who had been saved and for the one who was going to be saved.

5.我们比我更强大
5.The power of we is greater than that of I

今年神韵推广上,脚还是站得很酸,个人在整体修炼时间还是总是不够用,但心态却不同了。觉得可以参与这个项目是荣幸的,而且不知道为什么,在商场推广时整个人的身体细胞都是喜悦的,可能是沈浸在殊胜纯净的场中吧。
This year, during Shen Yun promotions, my feet were sore from standing, and the time for personal and group cultivation was never enough, but I feel my attitude has changed. I feel so lucky to have been able to participate in this project. And I don’t know why, but during the shopping centre promotions, I felt the cells in my entire body were full of joy, maybe they were immersed in the brilliant, pure field.

过去在商场售票经验中,百分之95的时候整个团队都形成一体,当我订票流程不顺畅时就会有同修马上接下去完成,或商场中出现小差错负责联络人都会以电话遥控的方式迅速地为我们解决各种麻烦,深刻体会到我们比我更强大!神韵售票场合谐神圣让人感到美好就是吸引有缘人的制胜关键。还有一次,在Westfield商场的销售点推广,有位同修体醒了我的黑色西装裤底口有点磨损,她的善意指出是为了维护神韵品牌的形象,没重视好是我的疏失;灵机一动,当下在商场中找到的一家帮忙修改衣服的店面,随即又恢复到专业销售员应有的穿着体面。由衷谢谢同修提点。不是开着修的我,却在场上看到很久没看见过的小小法轮在场上飞旋,谢谢师父!
Sometimes, the advice from conscientious practitioners is more than welcome. Almost all of the time, the whole team is one body. When the booking process didn’t go smoothly for me, other practitioners instantly stepped in to complete the process. I always believe that ‘we’ are more powerful than any person alone. The harmonious, solemn field of the Shen Yun promotion site enables people to feel the beauty and goodness of the show, and is the key to attracting predestined people. Another time, at a Westfield shopping centre, a practitioner pointed out that my black pants were a little worn out at the bottom, her kind intention was to protect the brand image of Shen Yun. It was me that overlooked this. An idea popped into my head, immediately I found a tailor to get my clothing altered, and soon after I restored my appearance of a professional salesperson. Thank you sincerely to the practitioner for their reminder. I am not in an unlocked cultivation state, but at the promotions site I saw a small Falun swirling about, something which I hadn’t seen in a very long time. Thank you Master.

最后要以师父在《二十年讲法》中的一段话与同修共勉:
“作为大法弟子来讲,完成你自己的使命,在你自己修炼中所在的境界救度你该救度的生命,从人中解脱出你自己要解救的生命,完成大法弟子的责任,归位后你都会感到无比的荣幸,也会感到你的宇宙范围巨大的了不得。”
Finally, I would like to share a paragraph from Master’s article, 20th Anniversary Fa Teaching:
“As Dafa disciples, if you can fulfill your missions; if you can, in whatever realm you are at in your cultivation, save the beings that you should save; if you can set free the beings that you should save out from among humans; and if you can fulfill the responsibilities of a Dafa disciple, then you will, upon returning, experience indescribable honor and sense the tremendous grandeur of your cosmic domain.”



欢迎任何的意见及建议。
Welcome any comments and suggestions.

谢谢师尊,谢谢同修。
Thank you Master, thank you practitioners !
