Stability of the Fa 

Some problems have occurred in practitioners’ cultivation over the past two years. I have been observing the situation of students’ cultivation. To correct the emerging problems promptly, I often write some short articles with specific purposes (called “scriptures” by our students) to guide practitioners in their cultivation. The purpose is to leave a stable, healthy, and correct way for Dafa cultivation practice. The future generations for thousands of years to come must cultivate according to the way I have personally left them if they are to reach Consummation.

Recently, however, I saw a collection of materials at a practice site in Hong Kong that were passed there from another region; they included two short articles that I did not intend to publish. This was a serious and intentional attempt to harm Dafa! Even transcribing our tape recordings on your own is wrong! I have made it clear in the article “Awakening” that there is no excuse for anybody’s transcribing my words into written materials from the tape recordings—doing this is undermining the Fa. Meanwhile, I have repeatedly emphasized that you cannot circulate the private notes that you took during my lectures. Why do you still do that? What frame of mind drove you to write them? Let me tell you that except for the several officially published books of mine and the dated short articles with my signature that are distributed to different regions by the Research Society, everything transcribed without permission is undermining the Fa. Cultivation is your own matter, and it is your own decision what you pursue. Everyday people all have both demon-nature and Buddha-nature. Demon-nature will take effect once a person’s mind is not righteous. Let me tell you again that an outsider can never damage the Fa. Only students can damage the Fa—remember this! 

Every step I, Li Hongzhi, take is to establish an unchangeable and unalterable way for the transmission of Dafa in future generations. Such an enormous Fa will not be over after a moment of popularity. There cannot be any slight deviation in the countless years to come. Safeguarding Dafa with your own conduct is forever the responsibility of Dafa disciples, because Dafa belongs to all sentient beings of the universe, and this includes you.
