(Minghui.org) Master Li repeatedly emphasized that we should learn the Fa well and cultivate ourselves so we can better assist him in saving sentient beings. Through memorizing the Fa, I’ve been able to make breakthroughs and witness the amazing power of Dafa.
Before memorizing the Fa, regardless of whether I read on my own or in a group, it felt like I was just going through the motions and I didn’t feel I was internalizing what I read. As a result, I was trapped in a lot of conflicts, and my deeply-rooted habits. I became so frustrated I wept because I didn’t seem to be able to break out of my attachment to self. In my heart, I begged Master to pull me out of the situation.
Master gave me some hints to memorize the Fa. While holding Zhuan Falun in my hands, I was afraid of the difficulty. I then thought, “I’ll just memorize one paragraph at a time. I won’t think about how long it takes. Aren’t being anxious and fearing difficulties attachments?”
I started memorizing the Fa every day from 4 a.m. to 6 a.m., because it is quieter in the morning, and my mind is calm When my whole body and mind were immersed in reciting the Fa, I found it was actually not difficult; I could memorize three to six pages in two hours. After reciting the Fa, I felt refreshed, and it seemed that every cell in my body was leaping with joy. Sometimes, I couldn’t help but jump and dance around like a child. It even felt like I was rising up in the air. When I assimilated to the Fa, I felt refreshed, happy, and fulfilled. The concentration and determination I have when memorizing the Fa can also be brought to doing the exercises, sending forth righteous thoughts, and doing things more efficiently at work.
“If you can actually do it, you will indeed find, “After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!””(Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun)
When I finished memorizing Zhuan Falun the second time, I realized that the process of memorizing the Fa is actually a process of eliminating karma. In this process, there was impatience, laziness, loneliness, etc. There was also my desire to take a break, eat, look at my cell phone, and recall old boring gossip in the past. All of this was interference that prevented me from memorizing the Fa with a peaceful mind, and to see whether or not I could persevere. After I overcame these attachments and recited Zhuan Falun twice, I understood many Fa principles, and Master also helped me to eliminate a lot of karma. I felt content from the inside out, and my confidence increased greatly. I no longer felt hopeless!
Even if there are obstacles I can’t get over and attachments I can’t get rid of, I’m confident that, as long as I persist in studying the Fa well, even the strongest attachments are temporary, and they will gradually dissipate. I will continually improve, and they will disappear.
Memorizing the Fa enabled me to overcome my introverted personality, break down the psychological barrier of being afraid of clarifying the truth to people in public, and allowed me to successfully persuade people to quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations. Memorizing the Fa has also continuously transformed my karma into virtue and helped me be more in harmony with the supreme characteristic of the universe. This strengthened my ability to distinguish between good and evil so that those who came to “transform” me and try to make me stop practicing Falun Dafa could not sway me.
Memorizing the Fa has enabled me to calmly face the harsh words of my relatives, friends, and the world with the righteous attitude of a Dafa practitioner. Practitioners in my family can now look inward in the face of conflicts, and the atmosphere has become peaceful. Other practitioners often say that my home is a very comfortable place to visit. In short, memorizing the Fa has changed me completely!
The benefits of memorizing the Fa are hard to explain in a few words. I hope fellow practitioners who want to recite the Fa will not hesitate—start to memorize Zhuan Falun as soon as possible. As long as you persist, you will definitely feel as if, “After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!” (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun) If you study the Fa well, you will be able to do anything!
