(Minghui.org) The 17th Polish Falun Dafa Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference was successfully held in Warsaw on July 17, 2021. Veteran and new practitioners from different ethnic groups in different parts of Poland met in Warsaw. Nine of them shared their cultivation experiences. Their articles were also available in Chinese, Polish, English, and Vietnamese.

The 2021 Poland Fa Conference was held in Warsaw.

Polish Falun Dafa practitioners shared their cultivation experiences at the conference and their understanding of cultivation.

Getting Rid of Attachments: Studying the Fa Well 

Ms. Kim is a Vietnamese Dafa practitioner who started practicing Falun Dafa seven years ago. From the day that she started to practice, Ms. Kim realized that her entire life is governed by Dafa. When she truly follows the Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong) principles daily, she always discovers her inadequacies and gaps. She also shared her cultivation experience when she studies the Fa well, and lets go of attachments.

Ms. Kim’s house needed to be renovated, which required a relatively large amount of money. She happened to see an investment opportunity that promised great returns. Given that, Ms. Kim’s attachment to gains and benefits was aroused. She invested a large amount of money into the offer without checking it out only to realize later that it was a scam. Due to her emotional attachments, Ms. Kim was full of regret and heartache. She inquired into the situation and sought help – the answer was that the chance of recovering the original amount that she had put in was almost zero.

However, at that critical moment, Ms. Kim remembered that she is a Dafa practitioner. Through this matter, her attachments to gain and getting benefits were revealed. Thus, she understood that this big tribulation taught her that she needed to eliminate these attachments. Due to studying the Fa a lot, she could let go of the heavy weight in her heart, and she no longer thought about it. Much to her surprise, the investment capital which was guaranteed to be lost was put back into her bank account three months later. Ms. Kim was shocked by the power of Dafa and Master Li’s (Dafa’s founder) protection. 

However, as she calmed down, Ms. Kim also studied the Fa less diligently. She once fell asleep when sending forth righteous thoughts, fell out of her chair, and fractured her collarbone in three places. This wake-up call made Ms. Kim realize how far she had deviated from the standard of a cultivator. The slowing down of Fa-study was the biggest loophole that allowed the old forces to persecute practitioners and interfere in their cultivation. 

Ms. Kim began to send forth strong righteous thoughts and strengthened her Fa-study to disintegrate the evil. After one day and one night, the pain stopped, and a few days later she was able to do the exercises again. She recovered fully. Ms. Kim shared her understanding – Cultivation is a very serious matter, and sending forth righteous thoughts is sacred. This painful lesson on her cultivation path is a wake-up call for everyone. The studying well of the Fa and doing well the three things are not only the guarantee for Dafa practitioners to assist Master during the Fa-rectification, they are also the most important weapon for Dafa practitioners allowing them to protect themselves.

Improving as a Whole in Cultivation When Clarifying the Truth to Upper-Level Authorities

After cultivating in Dafa, Mr. Andrez wanted to introduce the goodness of Dafa, and clarify the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to Polish diplomats, and hoped that the Polish government officials would accept the truth about Dafa, and make the right decision.

Coincidentally, he worked as a salesman for many years before obtaining the Fa. He is familiar with making phone calls to contact customers and introducing products to them. Therefore, Mr. Andrez naturally chose to call the Polish diplomats to introduce Falun Dafa to them, making them aware of the evil perpetrated by the CCP and the cruel persecution of Dafa practitioners by the CCP. A few practitioners then also joined him in his Dafa project.

However, at the start of the truth-clarification, Mr. Andrez already felt that this task of his is totally different from his previous sales promotion job. Everyone initially started off making phone calls based on their understanding of cultivation. 

After a while, when they did not get results as they had hoped for, after studying the Fa and looking inward, Mr. Andrez understood that only by cultivating himself well would he be able to save sentient beings. He also found that he and his fellow practitioners had many attachments, including fear. He realized that working in sales and saving sentient beings are different from seeking returns, not having enough compassion, patience, and so on. Besides the above, Mr. Andrez felt that he did not understand the nature of the CCP sufficiently, did not truly understand the matter of cooperation and cultivation exchanges as a group. After improving everyone’s understanding in this respect, they could cooperate when sending forth righteous thoughts and encouraging one another. This effectively helped clear the old forces’ interference and persecution. Thus, the practitioners were able to form a strong one body, and were effective in clarifying the truth to the Polish diplomats – the effects were extraordinary.

Cultivating Xinxing

Ms. Minh, a Vietnamese practitioner, shared her experience about how she cultivated her xinxing and saved sentient beings despite the CCP virus. Also, she talked about the Covid prevention limitations, such as the lockdown that limited events that were held to promote Falun Dafa.

Another Vietnamese practitioner, Ms. Kim Quy shared at the conference the great changes she experienced during the seven years on her cultivation path. For example, her mind and body became healthier, and she looked younger. Although she is almost 80 years old, there were many times when she took public transportation, and the ticket inspector mistook her for a young person. Ms. Kim Quy is grateful for being able to obtain the Fa in this lifetime, and she thanked Master for his benevolent salvation.

Ms. Basia, a Western practitioner, shared about the difficulties in her cultivation process when she joined the translation project. With the help of the principles of Falun Dafa and Master’s empowerment, she was able to persist until today. Amid the difficult situations, she was able to keep expanding her heart’s capacity and elevate her xinxing standard.

Strengthening Our Cultivation Understanding

After the conference ended, everyone felt that the cultivation experience sharing strengthened their understanding and interaction among practitioners. Being able to compare themselves with fellow practitioners helped many of them to see the gap in their cultivation. They realized that they lacked a true understanding based on the required standards of the Fa. 

Taking this rare opportunity, everyone once again studied the Fa together, encouraged one another to be more diligent in their cultivation, and agreed to persist in following the teachings of the Fa. When it came to their mission, which is to save sentient beings, they all wish to advance well on their cultivation path and assist Master during the Fa-rectification period.
