2020年澳洲在线法會發言稿 10 : Believing in Master and Believing in the Fa (帶中文翻譯)

Believing in Master and Believing in the Fa   Hong Fa in Darwin

By Darwin Western Practitioner

Greetings revered Master!

Greetings fellow practitioners.

I am from Darwin and am 69 years old. I started practicing Falun Dafa in 2002, and have been practicing continuously for 18 years. When I attend the Australian Fa conference every year, there’s a lot that I take away every time. Today, I would like to share with you how I have benefitted both physically and mentally after I obtaining the Fa under the care of Master, and how I have continuously clarified the truth in the centre of Darwin for more than ten years.

1. After obtaining the Fa, my temperament changed completely

I originally came from Turkey and I work as a Security Guard. I obtained Fa in Melbourne in 2002. From then on, I started practicing solidly.

In 2002, I heard about a group that was persecuted by the CCP. I thought, this practice must be very good if the Communist Party persecutes it. I started to search and I found an advertisement in the newspaper for free meditation classes at Flagstaff gardens in Melbourne. I spoke to a male practitioner there and I told him I wanted to learn. He said it was about “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance” and I said that this is wonderful. Maybe because I had this thought, Master let me understand that Falun Gong is a very high level practice.

I started to learn the exercises right away. When I was being taught, I felt a tingling sensation in my fingers. I had previously done Yoga and lots of other practices but I never felt like this, it was so wonderful and unique. I made up my mind that I would cultivate in this practice only.

I kept coming back and I met another practitioner from Turkey who gave me the books Falun Gong and Zhuan Falun. I read the book once and then I read it 20 more times continuously.  I started to distribute flyers and attended truth clarification activities. I also read all of Master’s other teachings.

Before practicing, I was a very angry and vengeful person. I was also intolerant of others and I would often fight with explosive bursts of anger. I had a lot of bad thoughts and would act according to those thoughts. I would always complain about things, and spent my days indulging in entertainment, going to nightclubs and spending too much money.

I became very different after practicing. Master fundamentally cleared up my thought karma. I became more tolerant and I regained control over my thoughts. I would Send righteous thoughts to eliminate any interference or thought karma. Whenever bad thoughts came, I would send forth righteous thoughts. I no longer go to nightclubs and get into fights anymore.

Falun Dafa gave me values beyond those of ordinary people. I now view things on the basis of the Fa, and whether things are in accordance with Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, rather than on the basis of the human world’s selfishness.

Dafa taught me that when things start to going wrong, first look inside to see whether there is anything not quite right on my part. Do I have attachments, desires, or human thoughts and notions that have caused this problems? When I found the root cause of my conflict, I would eliminate it as soon as possible.

My righteous thoughts become more and more powerful as I continuously studied the Fa. If I suffer any physical symptoms or other misfortune, I understand that it is related to paying back karma or is retribution for previous wrongdoings. Nothing is coincidental. If I recognize any interference from the old forces or the evil, I immediately send strong righteous thoughts to eliminate it.

2. Spreading the Fa in Darwin City

I moved to Darwin in 2005, and had been the only practitioner there for many years. During this period, I have experienced many ups and downs. But with Master’s blessings, I have persisted until today, and that is because I thoroughly read the Fa every day. When I am at work I can read the Fa, because the nature of my work allows it. I read all of Master’s teachings and when I am finished, I start all over again. I have learnt to memorize some sections that I find really helpful. I feel very motivated after reading Master’s Fa, so I never feel discouraged.

I have a double-sided pull-up banner which is on permanent display at the entrance of a mall in the centre of Darwin, in a bustling area of town. One side is Falun Dafa introductory information, and the other side are the Law Whell and  images of the five exercises. There are Government offices and hotels across the street, and many people can see the pull up banner. By thoroughly clarifying the truth, staff at the shopping mall is very supportive of me. I have been maintaining this Dafa stall and practice site alone for more than ten years.

I have a 3m Dafa introductory banner on my apartment balcony which has been on display for years from the second floor.  In 2018, before I went overseas I thought should I take it down before I leave, but I took the chance and left it as it was.  When I came back from holidays, the banner was intact.  I am deeply grateful to Master, this  is a miracle of Dafa.     

I consider showing the exercises to people one of the best ways to introduce Dafa. I meditate beside the pull up banner almost every day, as long as I do not have to work long shifts or other engagements.  I meditate mostly at noon because that is when it is most crowded, therefore more people can see it.

After completing a night security guard shift, in the morning I become very tired, sleepy and sometimes hungry. At these times, I do not want to meditate, but would rather stay home and sleep. However, I force myself to go to the mall to meditate. I tell myself it is not the time to slack off and indulge in comfort.  But always after completing the meditation I feel terrific and energized, and not at all sleepy or tired.  Thank you Master for your blessing.

When I do the meditation sometimes people imitate the exercise movements or sit by me and meditate for a while, then go to work.  Occasionally, they ask me to show them the exercises. After briefly mentioning the Fa and the books to read, I show them the exercises and give them some materials to read.

Many people take a photo of the Falun emblem and exercise instructions and ask me about the Falun symbol and its relation to Hitlers swastika. Some people ask what Falun Dafa is. I mostly focus on the Fa and how practitioners benefit from Dafa,  but also discuss the books to read and exercise videos in the internet. I try not to talk from too high of a level as that may drive people away, Master mentions this.   

Occasionally, I set up Falun Dafa stalls at the local open-air markets to distribute flyers and collect signatures. I introduce Dafa to predestined people, and talk about the persecution and forced organ harvesting. I set up a Falun Dafa stall at Mindil Beach market every Sunday, because it is the biggest market in Darwin and many tourists come.

I consider Charles Darwin University a very important place to clarify the truth, because it is a leading mainstream force in society.  Every semester, I put up plenty of Falun Dafa and forced organ harvesting posters on the notice boards. I also distribute flyers and collect signatures, leaving some flyers and Minghui magazines in various places at the university.

Hospitals are also crowded and a good place to introduce Falun Dafa to society. I distribute flyers, put up posters on the public notice boards and leave Dafa materials every several months. I focus on the forced organ harvesting materials for the doctors, nurses and other staff.

3. Eliminate interference and persist in spreading the Fa

There were some people from a group of missionaries who would often try to interfere with the Falun Dafa stall. While I meditated, they removed all the flyers and my table, damaged and stole the posters, leaving them in the rubbish area. Every time, I would just retrieved the posters, clean them up and put them back in the mall.

They also tried to steal the large banner, trying to take it down with a cherry picker. I told that if they touched it, I would sue them, after that they never attempt again.

I started to send strong righteous thoughts more frequently to disintegrate the evil factors behind these people. One day, the group came again and to make trouble.  I chased one of them down and asked them what they were doing. I spoke to him calmly. I told him that we are allowed freedom of expression and human rights. I told him that I volunteer to benefit other people because I have benefitted so much from Falun Gong. They then stopped interfering.

I know that it was Master who stopped them. I enlightened that we must maintain strong righteous thoughts at all the times. This is an important time and we must keep strong and diligent because Fa Rectification is moving forward so quickly.

I went to the local Chinese community centre shortly after I moved to Darwin. I went there to distribute flyers and put magazines on every table. They watched me intently. Many Chinese people took the flyers to read. One man in charge took the flyer as well.

After I went to the centre, I got a lot of phones calls to my landline with no one on the other end of the line. They would not answer when I said hello and I know that the CCP were trying to intimidate me. So I rang the telephone company for the caller’s phone number, and I rang him back saying, “You rang me, but you didn’t say anything, can I help you? I can answer any of your questions.” He said, “That’s all right, that’s all right,” and he never called again. I never received any more intimidating calls after that.

There are many indigenous people in Darwin, and they were vandalizing things in the beginning, but have become very respectful toward me and respectful toward Dafa. Sometimes they come to sit with me and imitate me in the meditation.

4. Thanks to Master for His care

I attend the Australian Fa Hui every year, and I have only attended one overseas Fa Hui, that was the International Fa Conference in Washington DC in 2018. I saw Master and listened to Master’s teaching in person, which is still fresh in my mind. In fact, Master is always taking care of me.

Once, I suddenly got up with a very runny nose, and I was wondering what should I do during the meditation. I made up my mind – it is not my problem, as whatever happens, happens, so I just took more tissues with me. I started the exercises at the mall. Surprisingly, the runny nose stopped immediately and did not come back again after that. I enlightened that the old forces were trying to stop me from meditating, but they failed and gave up interfering with me.

At midnight one evening, my knee suddenly became badly inflamed. It was red, swollen and painful and I found it difficult to bend. This was obviously interference from the old forces. I increased my righteous thoughts to eliminate the interference.  I had always walked the 30 minute journey from home to work, and I could not walk anymore so had to take a taxi to work for 2 days.  The supervisor insisted that he send me to the hospital, and give me a couple of days off, but I declined.

As I sat for righteous thoughts, I could barely sit in half lotus as I was in so much pain. Then I decided to try putting my legs in full lotus. I disregarded the intense pain and sat in full lotus as I sent forth righteous thoughts.  The pain decreased and eventually stopped.  Surprisingly, I noticed suddenly that all the inflammation was gone, and the interference and karma eliminated.  The people at work were all surprised when they saw me walking around again like before.

In Fa Teaching at the 2015 West Coast Fa Conference.” Master said: Some of our practitioners are struggling with passing the tests of sickness karma. Dont think that its necessarily something major [that causes that]. You might think that you havent done anything majorly wrong, and that you are very firm in your faith in the Fa. However, you shouldnt treat the little issues you have like they are nothing. The evil will seize upon any gaps. Many practitioners have even passed away on account of little things; it really was due to something very minor. Thats because cultivation is something serious, and requires having no gaps. If for a long time you havent dealt with those things through cultivation, small as they may be, if you havent taken them seriously for a prolonged period of time, then it is a big issue. Many people have passed away on account of such things. The old forces wouldnt venture to directly persecute Dafa disciples at present—none of the larger beings that assume a form would venture to do that. Then what sorts of things are doing that now? Things like worms, bugs, bacteria, and all kinds of foul things like that. Sending righteous thoughts is extremely effective in these cases! They are annihilated in large batches. But there are a lot of them, given how big this cosmos is; and the cosmos consists of many layers. So after you have wiped these things out, shortly after, before long, they might infiltrate again, and you need to eliminate them again. So you need to keep sending righteous thoughts like this, and persist with it for some time, before you will see obvious results. Dont lose confidence just because, after feeling good following a while of sending righteous thoughts, things dont seem to go well again. I can tell you that they are using this approach to wear you down—to whittle away at your strong sense of conviction. So you need to be alert to these things.”

By breaking through these sickness karma tests, I deeply realize the importance of keeping righteous thoughts and strengthening sending righteous thoughts at all times.

Next I would like to share my experience of Master’s care during one of my trips to spread the Fa.

One day, I ventured to a faraway suburb on the bus and I mailboxes some flyers all day and all evening, finishing the suburb of Zukkoli.  There were no buses because it was too late, but there was still one hour before the last departure from Palmerston to Darwin. I thought that I could walk to the interchange for 1 hour down the bushy country road instead.  I realized that I could not walk that distance in 1 hour as it was too far, so I started running. When I arrived at the bus interchange, I was surprised that the bus was still there with the driver was talking to a security guard, despite the bus already being a couple minutes late.

I waved my hand to the security guard who noticed me running to the bus, and he informed the driver who then unexpectedly drove off. The security guard told me he let the driver know, and he did not know why the driver suddenly left.

Although I was out of breath, I did not get angry or annoyed, and stayed calm, thinking that it was already late, so he had to leave. I asked about alternative transport options. Suddenly another bus stopped by and the driver yelled Get on the bus, the Darwin bus is waiting for you at the next bus stop”.

It was really waiting for me, and eventually I arrived in Darwin late that night.  I enlightened that compassionate Master set a few xinxing tests for me along the way.

5. Spreading the Fa overseas

I once went back to Turkey, introducing Dafa to people in the third largest city and a few other cities with populations of approximately 500,000. This was the very first opportunity for these local people to learn about Dafa.

The first time I spread the Fa while on holidays in Turkey was in 2013. Nobody had previously introduced Dafa to people in Izmir, the third largest city in Turkey.  I felt sad for them and then compelled to introduce Dafa. I stayed in Izmir for 4 months and distributed around 40,000 flyers. On Sundays, I did the exercises at a crowded park by the sea, in front of a big cafe. If anybody was interested, I would show them the exercises.  Some people were genuinely interested, and read Zhuan Falun too. I put up posters on public notice boards and set up Dafa stalls in markets. Overall people were very receptive and friendly.

In 2018, I went to Turkey for a 3.5 month holiday, where I introduced Dafa for the first time, distributing around 16,000 flyers in some mid-sized cities that are religiously conservative. I demonstrated the exercises too. Mostly people were receptive, but some people showed a negative attitude and rejected the flyer. They would argue on the grounds of religion and I was sometimes threatened. I would handle it with compassion, focus on the health benefits, and let them know Falun Dafa was not the same as the Buddhist religion; I resolved these issues peacefully. I always keep up with sending strong righteous thoughts to purge the interferences.

I visited all businesses and I gave the flyer to the shop owners. Once, a store manager took the flyer and offered me a piece of delicious baklava, insisting, I take it as a good will gesture.

Spreading the Fa for the first time in these cities was a very exciting and joyful process, and some of those cities now have permanent exercise sites.

The above are my experiences of spreading the Fa and cultivating over the past several years. Please kindly point out anything that is not in line with the Fa.

Thank you benevolent Master!

Thank you fellow practitioners.










二零零二年,我听说在中国有个团体被中共迫害。我想,如果遭到了中共的迫害,那这种功法一定非常好。于是我开始寻找,发现了一份报纸上的广告——在墨尔本市中心的弗拉格斯塔夫公园(Flagstaff gardens)有免费的打坐炼功点。我去了之后,找到一位负责教功的男士法轮功学员,告诉他自己想学,他说,法轮功基于“真善忍”原则,我立刻回应,这真是太好了。也许是我这一念出来后,师父让我即刻明白,法轮功是一种高层次的功法。










我有一个两面立式条幅(Pullup Banner),一天二十四小时,一周七天摆放在达尔文市中心购物中心的入口处,这是最繁华热闹的地段,一面是法轮大法简介,一面是法轮图形和五套功法的图示。在马路的对面,有很多政府的办公室和酒店,很多人都能看到这个条幅。通过讲真相,购物中心的工作人员都非常支持我。这个大法摊位和炼功点我一个人坚持了十多年。





在市中心购物的很多人都会对法轮图形和功法介绍的内容拍照,并询问法轮的含义以及与希特勒的万字符有什么关系,也有些人问什么是“Falun Dafa”(法轮大法)。我通常会注重介绍法理,修炼人如何受益,还有需要阅读的师尊的著作,以及如何在网上找到教功录像。我尽量避免讲的太高把人推远了,因为师尊说过不能讲太高这方面的法理。

有时,我会在当地户外集市上设立大法真相摊位,给市民发真相传单并征集反迫害的签名。向有缘的人介绍大法,反迫害真相和活摘器官的罪恶。每周,我都到明迪尔海滨(Mindil Beach)市集设立大法真相摊位,因为这里游客很多,也是达尔文最大的集市。
