for Falun Dafa Assistance Centers
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.
All assistants and staff of Falun Dafa Principal Assistance
Centers must be genuine cultivators who practice only Falun Dafa.
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.
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.
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.
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
said …” etc.
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.
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.
II Regulations for Falun Dafa Disciples in Propagating Dafa and
Teaching the Exercises
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Standards for Falun Dafa Assistants
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.
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.
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.
The assistants should spread Dafa and should teach the exercises
sincerely. They should actively cooperate with and support all
Principal Assistance Centers’
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.
IV Notification for Practitioners of Falun Dafa
Falun Dafa is a cultivation way of the Buddha School. No one is
allowed to propagate any religions under the guise of practicing Falun
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.
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.
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.
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.
