"Traveling In The World Upon Obtaining The Fa"
It took us 30 hours to arrive at Geneva from Taiwan, including transferring planes. We met practitioners around the world at the United Nations Plaza and practiced exercise there while the UN Human Rights Meeting held the opening ceremony.
Practitioners formed lines in perfect order in the wind and rain. Some set up banners. One mother and her daughter had come from Hungary. They came all the way to Geneva, flying from Hungary to Zurich, taking the train to Geneva.
It rained silently. The ground was muddy. Practitioners, who had come from all over the world, quietly sat in the Plaza meditating. It was serene and harmonious. What were we doing? "Without human action happening under cosmic changes, such conditions would not have been brought to ordinary human society, and neither would they be called cosmic changes." [Zhuan Falun, Lecture 7] What we showed is the display of the mighty Buddha's Fa in the human world.
When I attended the Falun Dafa Conference in New York last September, the heart-filling joy I felt was hard to describe with words. There were so many practitioners from around the world. We had never met each other before. But as soon as we arrived at the plaza in front of the Chinese UN Mission, we dissolved into one field, serene and harmonious. Nobody spoke one extra word. There was not a single piece of paper on the ground. Appealing was serious, solemn and stirring, yet it was shown with the gentleness and peacefulness of no grievance or hatred. All newspaper reported with lengthy articles,
"Since Falun Gong was suppressed over a year ago, practitioners have been appealing in the US with group exercises. This is their first large-scale march. Falun Gong, which stresses not having any organization, showed surprising discipline and efficiency in yesterday's parade."
"It caused a strong stir of curiosity among the working class at the noon break." "Fifty people wearing white dress marched in front, carrying the pictures of those persecuted to death. People on the street were all touched."
This was the mighty Buddha's Fa manifestation in the human world. Walking in busy Manhattan, we knew that we were not just holding banners. We were carrying the great law of the universe.
A Taiwanese nun, who is a Dafa disciple, also came to Geneva this time. She said, "Do you know? I have nothing. All the expense for me to go abroard to promote Dafa has been covered by begging, because I want those who have not attained Dafa to form good ties with Dafa during Master's Fa rectification. It doesn't matter how much they gave [to me when I begged]. Every drop of water entering the ocean is salty. I could hardly beg anything at some places. But I still went there because I wanted to give more pre-destined people such opportunity."
During the break in the exercise demo, practitioners read Master's new article "Persons in Charge of the European Fa Conference and All Attendees" in different languages. Master said, "...Everyday people do everything for self-interest, whereas what we do is for safeguarding Dafa. This is what a Dafa disciple should do, and it is without any selfish elements. ... As a Dafa disciple, in order to do Fa-rectification things well and to consummate everything of yours well, you need to study the Fa a lot. No matter how busy you are, you cannot skip Fa-study. This is what can best ensure your reaching Consummation. ..."
Hearing Mater's encouragement and expectation, my eyes blurred. I couldn't tell if it was tears or rain. My heart was heavy. Master kept enlightening us, enduring for us, and waiting for us. He is waiting for us disciples who are in the maze. In this precious but limited time, I feel even more embarrassed for having done too little and not having studied the Fa enough.
Master said, "Before dangers and disasters come, sail the Fa boat; Billions of hardships and perils are blocking in waves; Fragmented and broken, carrying heaven and earth; A dream of ten thousand years is over, eventually the coast." ["Arduously Saving" of Master's poem collection Hong Yin] Waking up from the dream of ten thousand years in maze; "Extinguish all illusory thoughts,..." ["Non-existence" of Hong Yin] The universe is renovated despite long-standing illusion.
