Studying the Fa and doing cultivation are a person's own affair. Yet often there are quite a number of students who consistently take other people as their role models--they look at how other people do things and then follow suit. This is a kind of poor behavior developed among everyday people. A cultivator has no role models. The path each person is to take is different, because each person's foundation is different, the sizes of their various attachments are different, the characteristics of their beings are different, their jobs among everyday people are different, their family environments are different, and so on. These factors determine that each person's path of cultivation is different, that how they eliminate attachments is different, and that the sizes of their tests are different. Therefore, amidst the manifestations of things it's very hard to find a path that others have made, and it's even less possible for a person to get a ride down one.
NEW YORK, Sept. 24, 2001 (Falun Dafa Information Center) -- The Chinese regime is using the recent terrorist attacks on the U.S. and the upcoming National Day of the People' Republic of China on October 1st as pretexts to take even more reckless action against Falun Gong.
(Clearwisdom.net) According to today' Apple Daily, a report with photos entitled "Radical Religions Advocate Destruction of the World" appeared on page A7 of Singtao Daily in Hong Kong yesterday. The article absolutely distorted the truth by listing Falun Gong in the report and even showcasing it in the most prominent position on the upper right hand corner of the paper. Because of this report, Hong Kong Falun Gong practitioners went to Singtao Daily' office the same day to protest and request that the newspaper clarify the deceptive article. Here is the report from Apple Daily.
Li Xifang, female, 58, Tonghua City, Jilin Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner Li Xifang, female, 58-years-old, lived in the Tuanjie Residential District of Tonghua City, Jilin Province. In mid-September 2001, she went to Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa and was arrested by the Beijing Police. On September 17, the Tuanjie Police sent people along with Li' family members to Beijing to see her, but on September 18, they received the sad news that Li Xifang had suddenly died in a detention center there. The police officers claimed that she had committed suicide, but considering the fact that the Chinese authorities have consistenly lied and acted with utter disregard for human life when dealing with Falun Gong, we will continue to investigate the details of her death until the truth is revealed.
