Please Pay Attention to the Issue of Plagiarizing the Fa Unintentionally
(Clearwisdom.net) After reading the recent experience sharing articles by practitioners, I'd like to point out one problem, which is that some practitioners didn't footnote the source of the Teacher's quotations. Some even didn't use quotation marks and took Teacher's words as their own words. I think this is an action of plagiarizing the Fa, though the writer most likely did it unintentionally.
Whenever I read articles without correct quotations, I don't feel good in my heart. As practitioners of Falun Dafa given to us by Master, it is imperative that we respect Teacher and Dafa. How could the issue of plagiarizing the Fa come into being? Would it not bring damage to Dafa if every Dafa student doesn't pay attention to the correct quotation of Teacher's words? Teacher has lectured on this issue clearly in his lectures. It is time that we pay attention to this and take it seriously. We must study the Fa more, do everything according to the Fa principles and deal with issues from the perspective of the Fa. Such problems could then be avoided. Here I ask practitioners to pay attention to this issue in our future sharings.
The closer to the end, the more diligent we shall cultivate ourselves and cultivate every aspect without omission. At the same time we should do well the things we should do. We should take seriously every issue that Teacher has touched upon. Even if we think it is a trivial thing (but personally I think every issue Teacher has talked about is very important in our cultivation and can't be differentiated as important versus not important.), if we relax ourselves on any one of the things, it is like missing a step on our path to Consummation.
The above is just my personal understanding. Please correct me if anything is inappropriate.
