Appendix I  Requirements for Falun Dafa Assistance Centers


I.                    All local Falun Dafa Assistance Centers are civic organizations for genuine cultivation practice, are only for organizing and assisting cultivation activities, and are neither to be run as economic enterprises nor managed using the methods of administrative organizations. No money or possessions are to be kept. No activities are to be held for healing illnesses. Assistance Centers are to be managed in a loose manner.

II.                 All assistants and staff of Falun Dafa Principal Assistance Centers must be genuine cultivators who practice only Falun Dafa.

III.               Falun Dafa propagation has to be guided by the essence and inner meanings of Dafa. Neither personal viewpoints nor methods of other practice ways should be promoted as the content of Dafa, or practitioners will be led into incorrect thinking.

IV.              All Principal Assistance Centers must take the lead to observe the laws and rules of their countries of residence, and they must not intervene in politics. Improving practitioners’ xinxing is the essence of cultivation practice.

V.                 All local Assistance Centers should, when possible, stay in contact with one another and exchange experiences in order to facilitate the overall improvement of all Dafa practitioners. No locality should be discriminated against. Offering salvation to humankind means making no distinctions with respect to region or race. Genuine disciples’ xinxing should be evident everywhere. Those who practice Dafa are all disciples of the same practice.

VI.              One needs to firmly resist any conduct that undermines the inner meaning of Dafa. No disciple is allowed to promote what he sees, hears, or awakens to at his own low level as the content of Falun Dafa, and then do what’s called “teaching the Fa.” That’s not allowed even if he wants to teach people to do kind deeds, because that’s not the Fa, but merely kind words of advice for everyday people. They don’t carry the power that the Fa has to save people. Anyone using his or her own experience to teach the Fa is considered to be severely disrupting the Fa. When quoting my words, one has to add, “Master Li Hongzhi[1] said …” etc.

VII.            Dafa disciples are forbidden to mix their practice with the practices of any other cultivation way (those who go awry are always these kinds of people). Whoever ignores this warning is himself responsible for any problems that occur. Pass this message on to all disciples: It is unacceptable to have in mind the ideas and mind-intent of other practices while doing our exercises. Just one, instantaneous thought is as good as pursuing things in that other way of practice. Once the practice is mixed with others, the Falun will become deformed and lose its effectiveness.

VIII.         Falun Dafa practitioners must cultivate their xinxing, along with performing the movements. Those who focus solely on the exercise movements but neglect xinxing cultivation will not be acknowledged as Falun Dafa disciples. Therefore, Dafa practitioners need to make studying the Fa and reading the books the essential part of their daily cultivation.

Appendix II  Regulations for Falun Dafa Disciples in Propagating Dafa and Teaching the Exercises


I.                    When promoting Dafa to the public, all Falun Dafa disciples can only use the statement, “Master Li Hongzhi states…” or “Master Li Hongzhi says…” One is absolutely forbidden to use what one experiences, sees, or knows, or to use things from other practices, as Li Hongzhi’s Dafa. Otherwise, what would be promoted would not be Falun Dafa and this would be considered sabotaging Falun Dafa.

II.                 All Falun Dafa disciples can disseminate Dafa through book-reading sessions, group discussions, or reciting at practice sites the Fa Master Li Hongzhi has taught. No one is allowed to use the form of lecturing in an auditorium, as I have done, to teach the Fa. No one else is able to teach Dafa and they can neither comprehend my realm of thinking nor the genuine inner meaning of the Fa I teach.

III.               When practitioners talk about their own ideas and understanding of Dafa in book reading sessions, group discussions, or at the practice sites, they must make it clear that it is only “their personal understanding.” Mixing Dafa with “personal understanding” is not allowed, much less using one’s “personal understanding” as the words of Master Li Hongzhi.

IV.              When propagating Dafa and teaching the exercises, no Falun Dafa disciple is allowed to collect a fee or accept any gifts. Anyone who violates this rule is no longer a Falun Dafa disciple.

V.                 For no reason may a Dafa disciple use the opportunity of teaching the exercises to treat patients or heal illnesses. Otherwise, that would be the same as sabotaging Dafa.

Appendix III  The Standards for Falun Dafa Assistants


I.                    The assistants should cherish Falun Dafa, be enthusiastic to work for it, and be willing to serve others voluntarily. They should take initiative to organize exercise sessions for practitioners.

II.                 The assistants need to practice cultivation in only Falun Dafa. Should they study other practice’s exercises, it automatically means that they have forfeited their qualifications for being practitioners and assistants of Falun Dafa.

III.               At the practice sites, assistants must be strict with themselves but generous with others. They have to maintain their xinxing and be helpful and friendly.

IV.              The assistants should spread Dafa and should teach the exercises sincerely. They should actively cooperate with and support all Principal Assistance Centers’ work.

V.                 The assistants should teach the exercises to others voluntarily. Collecting a fee or accepting gifts is forbidden. Practitioners should not seek fame or profit, but merit and virtue.

Appendix IV  Notification for Practitioners of Falun Dafa


I.                    Falun Dafa is a cultivation way of the Buddha School. No one is allowed to propagate any religions under the guise of practicing Falun Dafa.

II.                 All Falun Dafa practitioners must strictly observe the laws of their countries of residence. Any conduct that violates a country’s policies or regulations would directly oppose the merits and virtues of Falun Dafa. The individual concerned is responsible for the violation and all of its consequences.

III.               All Falun Dafa practitioners should actively uphold the unity of the world of cultivation, doing their share for the development of humankind’s traditional cultures.

IV.              Students—both assistants and disciples—of Falun Dafa are forbidden to treat patients without approval from the founder and master of Falun Dafa, or without obtaining permission from appropriate authorities. Furthermore, no one is allowed to accept money or gifts for healing illnesses of one’s own accord.

V.                 Students of Falun Dafa should take cultivation of xinxing as the essence of our practice. They are absolutely not allowed to interfere with a country’s political affairs, and moreover, they are prohibited from getting involved in any kind of political disputes or activities. Those who violate this rule are no longer Falun Dafa disciples. The individual concerned should be responsible for all consequences. A cultivator’s fundamental aspiration is to progress with diligence in genuine cultivation and to reach Consummation as soon as possible.
