The Power of Reciting the Fa
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a practitioner who obtained the Fa in December 1998. I have not been very diligent, and I have not advanced much in my cultivation. In August 2001, I was imprisoned by the evil. When I was arrested, I could only recite Lunyu (the preface of Zhuan Falun), and I could not remember the rest of the Fa completely. Soon I was sent to the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp, an extremely evil place. Once I arrived at Masanjia, I could feel a tremendously evil field overpowering me; it was like the big claw of a demon trying to drag me from a high position down to hell. I knew that the evil from another dimension was trying to destroy me completely. Therefore, I started to recite Lunyu, and, after reciting five times, I felt that the evil field had disappeared.
Thereafter, I started to recite Lunyu at least 20 times a day. By doing this I was able to break through each evil trial one after another, and finally came through without hesitation. Yet, there have been many occasions when I felt that I came to a point at which I could no longer withstand it, and whenever this happened, I would recite Lunyu. I'm still doing that today. There is one kind of practitioner that the evil cannot move -- the ones who hold Dafa in their hearts. They recite the Fa whenever they can, and they completely ignore the evil. "The Fa can break all attachments, the Fa can destroy all evil, the Fa can shatter all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts" ("Drive Out Interference").
Thanks to Master, I was able to break through one trial after another by reciting Lunyu. After that, I realized how important reciting the Fa is. I managed to recall poems from "Hongyin" (a collection of Teacher's poems) under a very difficult environment, and I have also recited other articles such as "The Effect of Righteous Thoughts" and "The Vows of Gods are Being Fulfilled," etc. Everyday, I try to recite the articles from memory, again and again, and I recite them whenever I can. I have deeply understood that without the Fa, there is nothing worth mentioning.
At present, my situation is still very critical. How wonderful it would be if
I could obtain a copy of Zhuan Falun while I am in prison! How great it
would be if I could recite Zhuan Falun and bring it to wherever I go!
Although it takes a long time to memorize it, once you can recite it, it would
speed up your Fa-study, and you can study the Fa wherever you are. For those
practitioners who are at home, please strive forward! Read the book more and
recite the Fa more.
