Vietnamese Falun Gong students: Greetings, everyone!
Practicing cultivation is a being’s process of ascension, starting step by step from being a good person, to gradually becoming a better person—a noble-minded being who transcends everyday people—to even higher. Therefore, in the face of a lack of understanding from the world’s people, and even pressure from governments, you should not use everyday people’s methods to defy them. You should clarify the truth with a compassionate heart.
Especially since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong, whether because of internal pressure or pressure from the international community, both have led it to be caught in a perilous dilemma—astride a tiger, it is difficult to dismount. Because of the persecution of cultivators, the regime is in the middle of collapse. In order to shift the pressure elsewhere, the CCP spies that have infiltrated the Vietnamese government use money, diplomacy, and commercial interests to urge the Vietnamese government to oppress Falun Gong students, thereby diverting international attention and alleviating the pressure the CCP brought upon itself due to the persecution of Falun Gong. Because of this, students should remain calm in this unusual period of time and refrain from organizing large-scale truth clarification activities at present, not to mention getting confrontational. Cultivation, to begin with, is about cultivating one’s self and giving up attachments. Therefore, put the primary focus on individual Fa study and practice in this period of time and do not organize large-scale Fa study or practice activities. No matter how the media tells lies, you should remain calm and not get provoked. Observe quietly; whoever provokes the situation has a problem! Be sure to remember this.
Speaking from another perspective, back when the CCP started persecuting Falun Gong, it was because of the enormous amount of evil beings and karma in other dimensions that had been accumulated over a vast, long history, and there were too many bad things. It was these things that used the CCP to oppress Falun Gong students and, at the same time, brought enormous pressure upon the overall situation. From the perspective of Gods, amid purifying the universe, these things would inevitably resist their fate of being eliminated, resulting in enormous pressure and manifestations of chaos in human society, particularly for Chinese society and sentient beings, as well as cultivators. The evil specter of the CCP alone is unable to do this; it will be eliminated by the righteous Gods as soon as it moves to persecute cultivators. In nearly 20 years of persecution, the bad things that had accumulated have all been eliminated now. Presently, the evil specter of the CCP is also in the final stage of elimination. Even if one wants to persecute Falun Gong like the CCP did in those years, the evil elements in other dimensions are gone. Without the support of the gigantic evil forces, humans are unable to do so.
People all know that Zhen-Shan-Ren is the universal value that benefits every nationality and every country, no matter who it is. Even if one is really persecuted, one must use a cultivator’s compassion to handle everything. Steadfast cultivators, when the heart does not move, ten thousand moves are subdued.
