(Minghui.org) The Falun Dafa Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference in Poland was held in Warsaw, Poland, on Sunday, November 9, 2013. Falun Dafa, also called Falun Gong, is a spiritual practice guided by the principles of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance. It is deeply rooted in ancient Chinese civilization.

Chinese and Western Falun Gong practitioners, including many new practitioners, took this opportunity to share their experience in practicing Falun Gong. Their speeches were simultaneously interpreted in three languages: Polish, English, and Chinese.

Conrad, a nine-year-old practitioner, shares his experiences at the Fa Conference.

A Nine-year-old Participates in Signature Drives

In his speech, Conrad, a nine-year-old practitioner said: “I had eight operations within four months of my birth due to dislocation of my intestines and stomach. My mother, a Falun Gong practitioner, read Zhuan Falun to me every day. To the surprise of my doctors, I didn't die. I have been studying the Fa and doing the exercises ever since. I have been healthy and have never been ill again. I am very grateful to Master.”

He has distributed truth-clarification leaflets in parades, so that people can find out about Falun Gong.

Conrad gave his teacher a petition form organized by DAFOH (Doctors against Forced Organ Harvesting), calling upon the United Nations to help stop the Chinese Communist Party from harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscience. Not only did his teacher sign the petition but also brought him a form full of signatures. Inspired, Conrad collaborated with his sister and gave out petition forms to teachers and parents at her kindergarten. They collected many, many signatures. He was so happy that he could contribute to such an important effort.

From a Christian to a Falun Gong Practitioner

Andrzej shared how he started practicing. He used to be a devoted Christian. One day he saw his wife reading an article by Master Li entitled “Disintegrate Completely All the Meddling Deities in the Three Realms that Have a Hand in Interfering with Fa-Rectification.”

Because he did not understand the title, Andrzej made up his mind to learn about this ancient Chinese culture – qigong. He started to read Zhuan Falun. He initially measured Falun Gong with his own, fixed ideas. As he read further, he slowly changed his notions.

He found answers to many questions that he had wished to understand but could not. He now clearly realized that disease is karma. Andrzej read the book again and again and finally understood that this was the truth he had always been looking for. He was so pleased that his heart was filled with gratitude.

Follow Master's Words, No Shortcuts

Mr. Huang, a Chinese practitioner, gave the following speech: “Follow the Words and Learn to Genuinely Cultivate.”

He shared: “Because I started practicing rather late, I was worried that the Fa-rectification was coming to an end, so I tried my best to study the Fa, do the exercises, and take part in all Dafa activities, thinking that this was the entirety of cultivation. Having studied the Fa with a clear mind, I have realized that there are no shortcuts in cultivation. We must follow Master's teachings, looking inward when encountering any tribulations and interference.

“Only by measuring my behavior and every thought against Truth-Compassion-Forbearance, the truth of the universe, and constantly removing my attachments am I truly cultivating myself.” He also described in detail how to face the pain he experienced during sitting mediation: from bearing the pain passively to taking the pain willingly by following Master's requirements. The unbearable pain in the past suddenly let up. Now he can really do the sitting mediation as Master described: “Compassion should arise in the heart, and the facial expression should be peaceful.” (The Great Way of Spiritual Perfection)

Validate the Fa by Harmonizing the Family

Tomek shared his experience of resolving a legal dispute six months ago. When his daughter was born, Tomek did not give permission to have her vaccinated. The physician and his mother didn't understand his decision and went so far as to sue him and his wife in court.

Facing a legal dispute and the risk that their baby could be taken away, Tomek and his wife realized that they should not avoid the conflict, so they explained the specific circumstances to the judge and asked their fellow practitioners to send righteous thoughts.

The situation changed immediately. Another doctor examined the baby, saying that the parents had taken good care of her and that the baby was in good health. Hearing this, Tomek's mother changed. Finally, the judge dismissed the case. In a calm and rational way, Falun Gong practitioners resolved an intense conflict.

Practitioners also shared their experiences of how to further introduce the Fa in Poland and how to clarify the truth to Chinese people and help them quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
