Mr. Li Hongzhi on Buddha Law-
Quote
ON BUDDHA LAW

Nothing is as profound as BUDDHA LAW. Of all teachings in the world it is the most wondrous and highest science. To open up this field, ordinary people have to fundamentally change their way of thinking. Failing that, the reality of the universe will forever remain something of a myth to mankind, and ordinary people will forever grope around inside the box created by their own ignorance.

So just what exactly is BUDDHA LAW, then? Is it religion? Is it philosophy? That is just how the "cutting edge" scholars of Buddhism see it. They merely study it on a theoretical level, subjecting it to criticism and so-called research, as if it were philosophy. The truth is, BUDDHA LAW is not limited to the little portion in scriptures, which is only BUDDHA LAWís initial-level Law. Instead, there is nothing that BUDDHA LAW cannot explainóit thoroughly unravels all mysteries, from those of particles and molecules to those of the universe, from small things to great things. It is a different discourse at different levels on the nature of the universeóto be True, Good, and Endureóat different levels, what Daoists call "the Dao," or what Buddhists call "the Law."

No matter how advanced the science of todayís human race may be, it can only account for a portion of the universeís mysteries. Once we mention specific phenomena of BUDDHA LAW, there is always someone who says, "Weíre in the electronic age now, and science is so advanced. Spaceships have flown to other planets, and you still talk about those naive old beliefs?" To tell it like it is, as advanced as computers may be, they canít compare to the human brain, which to this day is a mystery that baffles researchers. Regardless of how far spaceships may travel, they still cannot fly beyond this material dimension in which the human race exists. The knowledge mankind has today is extremely shallow and nothing more than a small part of the wholeóit is nowhere near a real understanding of the Truth of the universe. Some people donít even dare to face up to, approach, or acknowledge the facts of phenomena that objectively exist, all because these people are too narrow-minded and are unwilling to change their longstanding way of thinking. Only BUDDHA LAW can completely unveil the mysteries of the universe, of space-time, and of the human body. It can truly distinguish virtue from vice, and good from evil, and it can put an end to wrong views while providing the right views.

The ideas that guide todayís science are only able to confine its development and research to this material world, as a subject wonít be studied until it is knownóit takes that approach. As for phenomena that are intangible and invisible, but that objectively exist, real manifestations of those things appear here in our material world, yet they are shunned and considered unexplainable. Stubborn people simply insist, without supporting evidence, that those are just "natural" phenomena. People with ulterior motives have acted against their own consciences by dismissing all of it as "blind belief." And people who donít have inquisitive minds have shied away from these matters with the excuse that science is not yet advanced enough. Mankind will make a leap forward if it can take a fresh look at itself and at the universe, changing its rigid way of thinking. BUDDHA LAW can allow people to thoroughly understand immeasurable, boundless worlds. Throughout all the ages, only one thing has been able to explain perfectly the human race, the many material dimensions that exist, all life, and the entire universe: BUDDHA LAW.

Falun Dafa: A Brief Introduction

Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) is an ancient form of qigong, the practice of refining the body and mind through special exercises and meditation. Like tai chi, qigong is a vital part of many people's lives in Asia; almost every Chinese park is brimming by the break of dawn with people practicing these arts.

In just eight years since its public introduction, Falun Dafa has grown to become the most popular form of qigong ever in Chinese history. The major reason for this is that Falun Dafa distinguishes itself from other qigong practices by emphasizing not only physical cultivation, but also cultivation of one's moral character in daily life according to higher principles taught by Mr. Li Hongzhi, Falun Dafa's founder.

Falun Dafa's effectiveness in improving health and its profound principles have quickly made the practice immensely popular throughout the entire world. Since being introduced to the general public in 1992 by Mr. Li, Falun Dafa has attracted tens of millions of people in over 40 countries. Most major cities and universities in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe have English-speaking Falun Dafa practice groups.

The people who practice Falun Dafa come from every imaginable walk of life, as Falun Dafa transcends cultural, social, economic, and national boundaries. The practice has spread largely by word of mouth, as those who learn it usually find the benefits simply too good to keep to themselves.

From the closing part of the last chapter of Zhuan Falun by Mr. Li Hongzhi, the main teachings of Falun Dafa-

A Person With Great Spiritual Inclination
ZHUAN FALUN-The Ninth Talk
Quote
Now, whatís "a person with great spiritual inclination"? A person with "great spiritual inclination" is different from somebody with "a good base." People with great spiritual inclination are hard to find. Itís only once in a great while that somebody like that is born. Of course, for starters, someone with great spiritual inclination has to have a lot of virtue. That field of his white matter has to be pretty big. You can be sure of that. And at the same time, he has to be able to bear the hardship of hardships, he has to have great endurance, he has to be able to make sacrifices, he has to be able to guard his virtue, and heís got to have good comprehension, just to give you an idea.

And whatís the hardship of hardships? In Buddhism itís believed that being human is suffering hardshipóas long as youíre a human being you have to suffer. They say that none of the beings in other dimensions have this kind of body that ordinary people do, so they donít get sick, and they donít have the problems of birth, aging, sickness, or death. They just donít have that kind of suffering. The people in other dimensions can float in the air and theyíre weightless, and itís just so wonderful. But ordinary people, exactly because they have this body, they have these problems: if itís cold they canít stand it, if itís hot they canít stand it, if theyíre thirsty they canít stand it, if theyíre hungry they canít stand it, and if theyíre tired they canít stand it, and then they have to deal with birth, aging, sickness, and death. You get the idea, it doesnít feel good.

I read in the paper that when the Tangshan City earthquake hit, a lot of people died, but some folks were resuscitated. A special investigation was done with that group of people, and they were asked what it felt like to die. But, to peopleís surprise, they all talked about one unique situationóand they were all consistent on thisóand that is, at the very moment they were dying they didnít have any fear, and just the opposite, they suddenly felt a sense of relief and could feel an excitement brewing. Some of them felt like theyíd been suddenly freed of the restraints of their bodies, as if theyíd floated up like something buoyant and wonderful, and they saw their own bodies, some of them saw beings in other dimensions, and some even went off to various places. They all said that they experienced at that instant a sense of relief and a brewing excitement, and there wasnít any feeling of pain. So this tells us that when we have a mortal human body weíre suffering. But since we all came to this world the same way we donít realize that weíre suffering.

Iíve said that a person has to bear the hardship of hardships. The other day I mentioned that mankindís concept of space-time is different from that of other, larger space-times. Whatís for us over here a traditional block of time, like two hours, is actually a year for beings in another dimension. Letís say somebody is here cultivating in this tough environmentóto them itís just incredible. He wants to find the Dao, and he wants to cultivate, so this guyís just amazing to them. He suffers so much, but he hasnít ruined his original nature and he still wants to cultivate and return. Why can a cultivator be helped with no conditions attached? Thatís why. Say somebody meditates for a whole night in the ordinary peopleís dimension, when they see it, they canít help but say heís just amazing. "Heís already been sitting there six years"óand thatís because a couple hours for us is a year over there. The human dimension is just extremely special.

So what is "bearing the hardship of hardships"? Iíll give you an illustration. Thereís this guy who goes to work one day. His company is in a slump, and itís got to do something about its lack of productivity, so his company has to be restructured to increase individual accountability, and extra employees have to be laid off. Heís one of them, so he loses his job all of a sudden. Now howís that feel? He has no source of income nowóhowís he going to support his family? He doesnít have any other skills. So he goes home depressed. When he gets home he finds out his elderly parent who lives at his house is sick, really sick, so he gets worked into a frenzy and quickly sends his parent to the hospital. He goes through a ton of trouble to borrow some money so he can secure a bed at the hospital for his parent, and heads back home to get some things for him or her. No sooner does he get home than a teacher comes and tells him, "Your son hurt somebody in a fight, youíd better hurry over and patch things up." He takes care of it, goes back home, sits down, and just moments later a phone call comes, "Your wife is having an affair." Now of course you wonít run into that. The average person couldnít take the hardship, and heíd think, "Why go on? Iím gonna find a rope and hang myselfóIíve had enough! Time to put an end to it all!" Iím saying that you have to be able to bear the hardship of hardships. And of course it doesnít have to take that form. You get caught in the middle of people scheming against each other, tensions wear on your character, and thereís all that fighting for personal gainóthatís not much easier. A lot of people just live to prove their worth, and theyíll hang themselves when itís too much. So if we want to cultivate in an environment this complicated, weíve got to be able to bear the hardship of hardships, and weíve also got to have great endurance.

So whatís "great endurance"? To be a practitioner you should, for starters, be able to "not hit back when attacked, not talk back when insulted." You have to endure. If you donít, what are you calling yourself a practitioner for? Some people have said, "This endurance thing is hard to do. Iíve got a bad temper." If you have a bad temper then just change it. Practitioners have to endure. Some people blow up even when theyíre disciplining their kids, theyíll yell and make a big scene. You donít have to be like that when youíre disciplining your kids. You shouldnít really get angry. You should teach your kids with reason and good sense, and thatís the only way you can really teach them well. If you canít even get over little things, and you lose your temper, then forget about gong. There are people who say, "If Iím walking down the street and somebody kicks me, I can endure it, since nobody knows me." Iíd say thatís not good enough. Maybe later on youíll be slapped in the face a couple times in front of the very person you least want to lose face around, and thatís to humiliate you, to see how you handle it, and to see whether you can endure it. Maybe you can endure it but you canít get it off your mind. Thatís not good enough. You know, when a person reaches the Arhat level heís not fazed by anything he comes across. Heís not the least bit concerned about any human things and heís always upbeat. It doesnít matter how much he loses out, heís upbeat and doesnít mind. When you can really do that, then youíve achieved the initial Arhat Fruition.

Some people have said, "If we endure that much, ordinary people will say weíre so weak and so easy to take advantage of." Iíd say thatís not being weak. Letís think about it. Even among ordinary people you find older folks and people with better education who always exercise polite restraint and donít stoop to the other personís level. Then that should be doubly so for us practitioners. How is that weak? Iíd say it reflects your great endurance, itís a reflection of your strong willpower. Only practitioners have that kind of great endurance. Thereís a saying, "When the common man is humiliated, he draws his sword to fight back." Heís an ordinary person, so of courseó"You insult me, Iíll insult you. You hit me, Iíll hit you right back." Thatís an ordinary person for you. Could you call him a practitioner? If you donít have a will of steel, or if you arenít able to control yourself, you wonít be able to handle it right.

You know about General Han Xin who lived in ancient times, and how they said Han Xin was talented. He was Emperor Liu Bangís chief general, he was the pillar of the state. And why was he able to do such big things? They say that from a young age Han Xin was no average person. Thereís a classic story about Han Xin being "humiliated under somebodyís legs." Han Xin was already practicing martial arts even in his youth, and a martial artist would always carry a sword on him. One day Han Xin was walking down the street when a thug blocked his path, with his hands on his hips, "What do you have that sword slung over your shoulder for? Would you dare kill a man? If so, I dare you to cut off my head." And he stuck out his head as he was saying that. Han Xin thought, "Why would I want to cut your head off?" Back then, too, youíd be reported to the authorities for cutting off somebodyís head, and youíd have to pay for it with your own life. Could you just kill somebody on a whim? When he saw that Han Xin didnít dare kill him, he said, "Since you donít dare to kill me, crawl through between my legs." And Han Xin really did crawl under his legs. That showed that Han Xin had amazing endurance, and that he wasnít like your average guy, and thatís why he could do such big things. "A man has to struggle to prove his worth"óthose are ordinary peopleís words. Think about it, everybody, isnít life exhausting then? Isnít that a pain? Is it worth it? And Han Xin was an ordinary person, after allówe cultivators should be a lot better than him. Our goal is to reach a level beyond ordinary people, to forge ahead to even higher levels. We wonít run into anything like he did, but when a cultivator is insulted or humiliated around ordinary people, itís not necessarily any easier. Iíd say that those frictions with people that wear down on your character arenít any easier, theyíre actually worse, and theyíre pretty hard to handle.

Now at the same time, a cultivator has to be able to let goólet go of all kinds of attachments and desires that people have. You canít up and do that in one shot, but we can do it gradually. If you could just do it right off today, then youíd be a Buddha today. Cultivation takes time. But you shouldnít slack off, either. If you say, "Teacher said cultivation takes time, so letís take our time," thatís not the idea! You have to really be strict with yourself. In Buddha Law cultivation you have to boldly and vigorously forge ahead.

You also have to be able to guard your virtue, you have to guard your character, and you canít act rashly. You canít just do whatever you wantóyou have to guard your character. Thereís a saying you probably hear all the time when youíre around ordinary people, "Accumulate virtue by doing good things." Practitioners donít think about accumulating virtue, though. What we do is guard our virtue. And why do we make a point of guarding virtue? Because hereís what weíve seen. Ordinary people make a practice of accumulating virtue, and when theyíve accumulated virtue and done good things theyíll get good things in their next life. But that doesnít apply to us hereóif your cultivationís a success youíll attain the Dao, and there wonít be any question of the next life. But thereís another layer of meaning to this "guarding virtue" weíre talking about here. Itís that these two kinds of matter we carry with us on our bodies arenít accumulated in just one lifetime, theyíve been passed down for ages. You can scour the city but thereís a chance you wonít run into any good deeds to do. And you could even do that every day and maybe you still wouldnít come across anything.

But thereís yet another layer of meaning, and a person needs to know about it if heís going to accumulate virtue. Maybe you see something that looks like a good thing to do, and you go and do it, but maybe it turns out to be a bad thing. Or maybe you see something that looks like itís a bad thing, and you step in to stop it, but maybe it turns out it was a good thing. And why is that? Itís because you canít see the underlying causes. Judicial laws govern ordinary peopleís affairs, and thereís nothing wrong with that. But being a practitioner is a higher thing. So as a higher person you have to hold yourself to higher laws and higher logic. You canít evaluate things with the reasoning of ordinary people or with ordinary laws. When you donít know the underlying causes of something youíll probably handle it wrong. Thatís why we talk about nonactionóyou canít just do whatever you want. Some people say, "But I just want to make sure justice is served." Then Iíd say great, we should all just enroll in police academy then? But weíre not telling you to do nothing when you come across terrible things like murder and arson. Iím just explaining that when people are fighting with each other, and maybe one person even kicks the other, or one of them slugs the other one, maybe that guy owed the other person something, and now theyíre settling the debt. So if you step in they canít settle it, and theyíll have to do it again the next time around. What this means, then, is that youíd probably do the wrong thing and lose virtue since you canít see the underlying causes.

Itís fine for an ordinary person to do something about some ordinary peopleís thing. He sizes it up with the reasoning of ordinary people. But you, on the other hand, you have to use higher reasoning to size things up. And thereís a problem with your character if you donít do anything when you see something awful like murder or arson. How could you then demonstrate that youíre a good person? If you donít even do anything about things like murder and arson, then what would you do something about? But one thing is, these things donít have a lot to do with us cultivators, so chances are that wasnít planned for you, and chances are you wonít be made to encounter them. When we talk about guarding virtue, itís to have you avoid doing bad things. Maybe you do that thing ever so slightly, but it could still be doing a bad thing, and then youíll lose virtue. And once you lose virtue, how are you going to raise your level? How will you achieve your final goal? So these kinds of questions are part of it. And also, your comprehension has to be good. If youíve got a good base, maybe itíll make your comprehension good, and influences from your environment can play a role, too.

And weíve said, too, that if every one of us cultivates inward, if every one of us examines his own character for causes, if when we donít do well we look inside ourselves for the cause, and we try to do better next time, and if we think about other people first any time we do something, then the world will change for the better, morals will go back up, peopleís civility will improve, and crime will go down. Maybe we wonít even need policemen. There will be no need for things like neighborhood watch, and everyone will watch over himself, and theyíll look inside their own minds to fix things. Wouldnít you say thatíd be great? We know how laws and regulations are now getting more and more complete and tight over time. Then why do people still do bad things? Why donít they follow the law? Itís because you canít police their minds, and when nobody is watching theyíll still do bad things. But if everyone were to cultivate inward things would be totally different, and you wouldnít need to be a whistleblower all the time.

We can only teach the Law up to this level. You have to cultivate to get whatís higher. The questions some people are asking are getting more and more specific. Now if I were to answer every question in your life, whatíd be left for you to cultivate with! You have to cultivate for yourself, and you have to come to your own realizations. If I spelled everything out you wouldnít have anything left to cultivate with. But you donít have to worry, because the Great Law is now being spread, and you can base your actions on the Great Law.

* * *

I think the time for my transmitting the Law is pretty much coming to a close, so I want to leave you with the true things, and this way youíll have the Law to guide you from here on out as you cultivate. The whole time Iíve been transmitting the Law, Iíve made a point of being responsible to you and to society, and weíve really been able to follow through on this. I wonít comment on whether weíve done it well or notópublic opinion will tell. My wish was to spread the Great Law to the public and have more people benefit from it, and to make it possible for those people who truly want to cultivate to follow the Law and cultivate up to high levels. And while weíve been spreading the Law, weíve spelled out how to act like a good human being, and I hope that after you finish this class, at the very least you can be a good person even if you canít be somebody who cultivates by the Great Law, and that will benefit our world. Actually, now you know how to be a good person, and after this class you can be a good person.

There have been some things that havenít gone smoothly while Iíve been transmitting the Law, and big-time interference has come at us from all sides. But thanks to all the enthusiastic support from the organizers and community leaders, and also all the efforts of our staff members, our classes have gone pretty well.

All the things Iíve taught you during the classes are to guide you in cultivating to high levels, and nobody has ever taught these things before when they preached the Law. What weíve taught is really clear-cut, and weíve incorporated things that have been put forth by modern science and todayís human-body sciences, and whatís more, the level weíve explained it at is quite high. Weíve done that mainly for you all, to help you truly obtain the Law in the time ahead, to cultivate upóthatís my starting point. While weíre transmitting the teachings and the exercises, a lot of folks feel that the Law is pretty good, but hard to put into action. But actually, I think that whether itís hard depends on the person. A really average, ordinary person doesnít want to cultivate, and heíll feel that cultivation is just way too hard, that itís unthinkable, and heíll think itís a waste of time. Heís an ordinary person and he doesnít want to cultivate, so heíll think itís really hard. Lao-zi said, "When the highest type of men hear the Dao, with diligence they will practice it. When average men hear the Dao, it seems some is kept and some is lost. When the lowest type of men hear the Dao, they laugh at it heartily. If they didnít laugh at it, it wouldnít be the Dao." For a true cultivator, Iíd say itís easyóitís not some impossible mission. And in fact, a lot of our veteran students here in the audience, and a lot of them who arenít here, have already cultivated to levels that are quite high. I didnít tell you this before because I was afraid youíd form attachments, that youíd be pleased with yourselves, and so on, and that would affect how your potency grows. For every one of you who makes up his mind to cultivate, you will be able to endure things, and when your personal welfare is on the line, you will be able to let go of your attachments, and you will be able to take those things lightly. As long as you can do that itís not hard, in fact. Now those people who say itís hard, it turns out, they just canít let go of those things. Doing the exercises isnít hard in its own right, and thereís nothing hard about raising your level in and of itself. They only say itís hard because they canít let go of their human thoughts. The reason is, itís hard to let those things go when your personal welfare is on the lineóthat benefit is right there, in front of you, how can you let it go? When they think itís hard, we should know that thatís the reason why itís hard. When we get into conflicts with people, if you canít swallow that anger, or you arenít able to handle it as a practitioner, Iíd say that just doesnít work. Back when I was cultivating, a lot of men of great character told me this: "Itís hard to endure, but you can endure it. Itís hard to do, but you can do it." And thatís really how it is. When you go back you might want to give it a try. When youíre going through an awful tribulation, or maybe a critical juncture, give it a try. When itís hard to endure, try to endure it. When it seems impossible to do, or just hard to do, give it a try and see just what you can do. And when you can really do it, just like that worn and weary traveler, youíll see, "the shade of willows, the blooms of flowers, a place to rest my head"!

We should probably stop here, because if I say too much itíll be hard for you to remember it all. So Iíll just say a few things in parting. I hope that in your cultivation that lies ahead youíll go about things as a practitioner and truly keep cultivating. I hope that both our new students and veteran students are able to cultivate in Dafa, and have complete success! I hope that after you go back home youíll seize the day to really cultivate.

Be wary of these guys. I've read a lot of negative things, and not just disagreements, I mean dangerous things, about them, I even read the first half of one of the founders books. First of all, the founder seems to think that evil aliens attach themselves to and even possess people that do not follow the Dharma Law, such as politicians and various criminal types. Second, (I wish I had the link) I read that certain practitioners of Falun Gong ended up with psychosis because his teachings were not safe and up with this idea he is God Sent. They went on to say that the founder trained in Daoist Qigong but left after a while on bad terms and never really got to master the highest techniques and changed and added a bunch of stuff that cause delusions and other qi deviations.

P.S. Not saying don't do it, just be careful. A lot of people seem to think they are a cult in the worst kind of way, hence why everything is free. They are also hated by the Chinese Government (no biggy, they hate everyone that disagrees, you know, role of governments in general) and are fighting a never ending war and claim because they are so powerful and pure the government is stealing practitioners and using their organs. Just a heads up. You can find a lot of this if you search Falun Gong Cult.
"Spirit is in a state of grace forever.
Your reality is only spirit.
Therefore you are in a state of grace forever."

"As relfections of the Source, we are little gods."

"...part of me doesn't want to believe that auto-eroticism while crushing on a doodle (sigil) could manifest a check in the mail box, but hey, it did."

China is still under an oppressive communist regime, and this regime is opposed to goodness in the Universe. The CCP is opposed to Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. They also have an ideology of atheism. In 1999 the CCP began a campaign of imprisonment and torture to eradicate Falun Gong. Part of that campaign was spreading propaganda, slander, and lies, like saying Falun Gong practitioners go crazy. Meanwhile the truth is that they are being tortured and killed by the communist regime.

I understand the Chinese Government has a lot to do with the slander of Falun Gong, but some of the warnings I have read were from Americans that saw it as another crazy cult. Like Scientology for instance. The government and outsiders spread a lot of black propaganda about them, but part of that slander was right... in fact a lot of it was (I know because I have witnessed a lot of the corruption being I was raised up in Scientology).

Like I said, I am not telling people to not give it try or you are wrong in any way for posting the thread, as I have no personal experience in Falun Gong, but from what I read, even from the founder, it sounds a bit kooky.
"Spirit is in a state of grace forever.
Your reality is only spirit.
Therefore you are in a state of grace forever."

"As relfections of the Source, we are little gods."

"...part of me doesn't want to believe that auto-eroticism while crushing on a doodle (sigil) could manifest a check in the mail box, but hey, it did."

"Everybody laughs the same language."

That was a lot of information to absorb.
But even with the criticism/warning, I don't know which way I sway on the topic.
VERY interesting though.
So kudos!
