Practice is Not Political
Some students are discontent
with society and politics; they learn our Dafa with this strong attachment that
they don’t abandon. They even attempt to take advantage of our Dafa to get
involved in politics—an act born of a filthy mindset that desecrates Buddha
and the Fa. They certainly won’t reach Consummation if they don’t abandon
lectures I have repeatedly stressed that the form of human society—no matter
what type of social or political system—is predestined and determined by
heaven. A cultivator does not need to mind the affairs of the human world, let
alone get involved in political struggles. Isn’t how society treats us testing
cultivators’ hearts? We should not get involved in politics.
Such is the
form of our Dafa cultivation practice. We will not rely on any political powers
at home or abroad. Those people of influence are not cultivators, so they
certainly cannot hold any positions of responsibility in our Dafa—either in
name or reality.
you must remember that we’re doing true cultivation practice! We should
abandon those ordinary human concerns for reputation, profit, and emotion. Do
the conditions of a social system have anything to do with your cultivation
practice? You can only reach Consummation after you have abandoned all of your
attachments and none of them remain. Other than doing a good job with his work,
a cultivator will not be interested in politics or political power of any sort;
failing this, he absolutely isn’t my disciple.
to have cultivators obtain the Fa and achieve Righteous Attainment, just as
we’re able to teach people to be kindhearted in society—this is good for the
stability of human society. Yet Dafa is not taught for the sake of human
society, but for you to reach Consummation.
