读《转法轮》 澳洲西人找到生命意义

真相网2020.1.12】据明慧报道:法轮大法(也称法轮功)于一九九二年五月由李洪志大师公开传出。二十五年前,指导学员们修炼的主要著作《转法轮》出版发行,迄今已经被翻译成三十九种语言,全世界一亿多人都在拜读。

读《转法轮》 澳洲西人找到生命意义

一九九六年八月,创始人李洪志先生第一次来到澳洲悉尼讲法、解法,从此这部大法惠泽澳洲大陆。以下是几位修炼十多年的澳洲西方学员分享阅读《转法轮》的感悟和身心被净化后发生了神奇、巨大变化,他们都表示,找到了一生在追寻的生命的意义。

“《转法轮》创造了一个全新的我”

在一家语言学校担任英文教师的简森·古德林(Cansin Goldring)女士,从十八年前开始阅读《转法轮》,她说:“这本书给我和我的儿子带来的变化无法尽述。我们非常感谢师尊李洪志先生在这本书中教给我们的法理。”

在古德林的成长过程中,关于人生、宇宙和人类为什么存在,她心里总是有很多解不开的疑问。“我想知道人为什么会死,死后去了哪里。死后还有生命吗?为什么有人非常走运,而有些人却很倒楣?自从阅读了《转法轮》,我找到了所有这些问题的答案。”她说。

“我感到如此幸福,不再希望拥有过去非常看重的东西了,比如豪车、大宅,或者令人羡慕的度假游等等,因为我知道,如果我能做到真、善、忍,那么这个宇宙会给我任何我想要的东西。”

“在此生第一次阅读这本神奇珍贵的著作之时,我就决定戒烟了。在那之前,即使我有心脏病,也从来没有想到过戒烟,因为我的烟瘾太大了。阅读几遍《转法轮》之后,我彻底戒掉了。十八年来,我没有一丝一毫想再拾起烟的念头。随着戒掉烟酒,我变得越来越健康,内心更平和,从此不再需要去看医生了。”

“对我的儿子来说,最明显的变化是,我变成了一个完全不同的母亲。我不再因为细小的事情对他发火,我也不再教他:一旦别人打他,他应该还手,或者一旦受欺负,要立即告诉我什么时候发生的、什么人做的,我要去学校找他们评理,等等。随着不断阅读和理解师父在书中所讲述的内容,我变得很祥和。”

“在我儿子八岁的时候,我经常阅读《转法轮》给他听。在听我开始念《转法轮》之后,他就再也不让我念其它曾经读过的睡前故事了。他总是让我念《转法轮》。”她说,“我儿子现在二十七岁了,他不知道酒精饮料是什么味道,从来没有抽过烟,一直在按照《转法轮》中所讲的‘真善忍’原则规范自己。这是全宇宙的指导原则。”

“儿子从小到大,我从来没有见过他发脾气或者对任何事情表达不满,我认为这都缘于从小领悟《转法轮》中师尊的教诲。现在,他是一个非常成功的商人,也是因为他的成长伴随着阅读这些指导修炼的法理。”

古德林说:“谢谢师尊的指引。是师尊让我这个母亲当的如此轻松。”

仅仅阅读一本书怎么会有如此强大的力量?她说:“但事实就是这么简单。每天晚上,当我开始阅读《转法轮》,我就开始检查自己的行为是好是坏。书中的法理在提醒我,应该心怀善念,应该做到真,也应该忍。可以想象,这不是随时都能轻松做到的。有时候我没能按照这些原则去做,结果和主管或同事发生冲突。过后,我打开书,开始阅读。立即,我感到安稳和喜悦,因为看到了自己的错误,我变成了一个更好的人。这就是为什么这本书具有如此强大的力量。因为她能创造一个全新的我,一个更真、更善、更忍的我。”

“这本书已经成为我最伟大的朋友,是引领我走向慈悲心怀的向导,是在这个充满不可预知魔难的复杂环境中给予我力量的源泉。这就是这本书能改变一个人的强大力量。你从此在遇到麻烦和危机时不会再颤抖和恐惧了,你会变得睿智、冷静和坚毅。”

“今生我会继续阅读《转法轮》。因为我不想变回到阅读这本书之前的那个我。”

“真、善、忍”是生命的秘密

戴斯蒙德·福特(Desmond Ford)先生在修炼法轮大法前,和妻子共同经营一家自然疗法诊所,因此他们可以接触到各类不断涌现的可帮人解除痛苦的健身方法或者修行的方法,比如经常收到介绍班等活动邀请和免费的书籍资料等。

他说:“我们俩人都是在天主教家庭长大,但我们都各自从青少年时期就开始探索各种各样能真正回归的途径。对我来说,内心总有一种很深的、对‘某种事物’无法满足的渴望,换句话说,就是我知道每一个生命来到世上都有特别的目地,但我自己所经历的一切还无法回答这个问题,只是足以让我去不懈的探索。相应的,这就是驱使我‘修复我自己’的来自内心深处的潜在动力,因为我知道自己很不完美。”

多年的尝试和努力,没有收获,却导致了很多的损失,他决定放弃了。在等待和渴望中过着心愿无法满足的空虚生活。

一九九八年一个不同寻常的日子,一位顾客送给福特的妻子一个礼物——一本《转法轮》。她立即就开始阅读了。从此,福特夫妇成为精進的法轮功学员。

福特说:“对于此类书籍,我的阅读习惯是,快速的读其中的几页,一旦知道书里没有我想要的答案,就放弃了。但我立即发现《转法轮》绝对与众不同。我和妻子都不愿把这本书放下,也就是说,我们俩在一天之内就从头到尾读完了一遍。”

他感到书中很多内容如醍醐灌顶,启迪心智,当然也有当时还不能理解的部份,“但是师尊的话鼓励着我,一遍又一遍的阅读。”他说。

“二十年来,我从没有一天错过阅读《转法轮》,有些部份甚至已经能背诵了。于是,我逐渐发现,导致自己所有问题的根本原因是自私——对自我的专注。”他说,“什么时候都首先是‘我!我!我!’这已经成为习惯性的无意识的念头,总是伴随着我,生活中随时随的控制着我。”

“通过不断的阅读《转法轮》,我学会了向内找,能找到每一个问题的根源。现在,我明白了,根据师尊的教诲,只要问自己这三个问题:我真吗?在考虑自己之前首先想到别人了吗?我做到忍了吗?‘真、善、忍’是生命的秘密。”

对师尊李洪志先生,福特的内心充满感恩,他说:“谢谢您,李洪志大师。我的渴望实现了,我正在归正我自己,而且,我的人生充满意义。”

“《转法轮》讲述的是终极的真理”

波兰裔画家芭芭拉·舍费尔(Barbara Shafer),二零零三年十一月十一日,在修复教堂壁画时,从七米高的架子上跌落,头朝下摔到水泥地上。当时生命陷入绝境,被西医判为毫无痊愈的希望。医生说,她的头骨裂成了三块,鼻子和鼻窦几乎被撞得粉碎,上颚有三处被摔裂,膝盖和手部都是粉碎性骨折,被摔断的手骨还露在皮肉外面。

手术之后,芭芭拉几乎全身上下都是缝针接口,脸上缝了七道。此时的她更象一个被摔坏了零件的“机器人”:她的体内被装上了许多螺丝和钢板作为支撑;整床牙都需要用金属线来固定;两只眼睛同时看着不同的方向;左耳失聪,左手失去知觉;脑中充满了奇怪的机械杂音。

当时,失忆开始困扰着她,难忍的疼痛如噩梦般挥之不去。两次手术之后,她的脊髓液还在从喉咙后侧往外渗。这时她感到走投无路,决定听从好友的建议,学炼法轮功。

阅读《转法轮》的第一天,她吃力的将目光放在书上,但是眼神无法集中,视力模糊。尽管如此,她依然坚持着。读书的第二天,她发现自己的视力提高了。她读完了第一讲,然后接着读第二讲。书中的内容深深吸引着她。

读书的第三天,不寻常的事情发生了。她感到一股强大的电流似的能量从手指往手臂上走:“这(能量)带走了一切——疼痛,手术后的问题,脊髓液外渗的问题,甚至耳鸣,那些在我脑中无休止的象印刷厂机器发出的杂音,全都消失了,而且再也没有回来。”

修炼法轮功仅四个月后,芭芭拉再次回到了高高的手脚架上,再次从事自己热爱的工作。这次摔伤事件不但没有给她留下任何心里阴影,而且,她摔伤之前患上的所有疾病都消失了,包括严重的消化系统疾病、偏头痛、过敏、焦虑和抑郁。她的身心完全康复了。

舍费尔表示,修炼法轮功后,她所有方面都得到了提升,更富有同情心、更体贴别人、内心变得更加平和。

“我相信,《转法轮》讲述的是终极的真理,这是世人等待了很多很多年的真理。这是在我们这次人类文明道德下滑到如此地步之后,上天赐予人类的最后希望。师父李洪志先生以他洪大的慈悲教诲世人,大法能够改善社会,挽救人类文明。”

她最后说:“我对师父的感恩无法用言语表达,只能通过做得更好来表达我的感激之情。我希望人们在中国可以像我一样自由的修炼法轮功。法轮功是美好、充满力量的修炼方式,让人们获得最大的自由、最高的智慧和启迪。希望有更多的世人能按照‘真善忍’修炼,每个人都能从中获益。”

In Zhuan Falun, Australians Find the Truth of Life 

Falun Dafa is a meditation system introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in May 1992. The main teachings, found in the book Zhuan Falun, is currently available in 40 languages and has been read by over 100 million people.

The popularity of Falun Dafa in Australia started in August 1996, when Mr. Li delivered a lecture in Sydney. Below are stories of several Australians on how this practice improved their mind and body.
English Teacher: A New Me

Cansin Goldring, who teaches English at a language school, began to read Zhuan Falun 18 years ago. Before that, she always had many questions about mankind and the universe. For example, she wondered why people die and where they go afterwards, why some people are lucky and others less fortunate. These questions bothered her until she read Zhuan Falun. “I feel so happy and no longer wish to posses things like I used to, such as luxury cars, big houses, amazing vacations,” she said. “This is because I know, if I just manage to be kind, compassionate and truthful, the universe will give me everything I need.”

The miracles started when she read Zhuan Falun for the first time and made up her mind to quit smoking. It was not an easy decision, given her addiction. Despite her heart diseases, she never thought she could do this. “After reading Zhuan Falun a few times, I stopped smoking, and for 18 years I never felt the urge to start again,” she added. The health benefits she experienced after taking up Falun Dafa were enormous. She became healthier, happier, and no longer needed to see a doctor.

Another benefit related to her son. “He told me,” she said, “I became a different mother—in a good way, because I no longer got angry with him over small things.” She also stopped telling him to fight back or seek revenge when being bullied. Instead, she explained how a Falun Dafa practitioner would handle such issues. She also said, “My son said I had become much calmer.”

Curious about the book, the 8-year-old often asked his mother to read the book to him instead of bedtime story books. Nineteen years have passed, and he has no idea what alcohol tastes like, nor has he tried smoking. Instead, he follows the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance described in Zhuan Falun.

Her son, now 27, is a successful businessman. “I have not seen my son getting angry, upset or discontent with anything due to his early immersion into Zhuan Falun. As a mother, nothing can be more rewarding than this,” she said.

Why is this book so powerful? It is actually quite simple, Goldring explained: “Every night when I started to read Zhuan Falun, I began evaluating my behavior as being good or bad. It reminds me that I should be kind, I should be truthful, and I should be tolerant.” It is not easy to always do things like that. “There have been times I did not follow these principles and got into trouble with my bosses or colleagues. Then, I pick up the book and start reading. At that moment, I feel secure and happy, noticing my mistakes and becoming a better person,” she recalled. 

Goldring said the Dafa books help one to become more kind, compassionate, and truthful. “It is my greatest friend and my guidance to kindness. It is my strength in this complicated environment, which is full of unexpected troubles,” she said. “You become wise, calm, and content.”

She is very grateful for having come across this practice. “The changes Falun Dafa has made in my son and me are countless and beyond words to describe it,” she said. “We are thankful to Master Li for his teachings imparted in the book. I will certainly keep reading Zhuan Falun for the rest of my life. Because I would not like to be the person I was before reading the book.”
Clinic Owner: Secret of Life

Desmond Ford and his wife own a natural therapy clinic, and they came across all kinds of methods for improving health and well-being.

“One day,” said Ford, “a customer gave my wife a gift—the book Zhuan Falun. Neither my wife nor I wanted to put it down. Suffice to say we both read it from cover to cover by the second day.” 

Both having grown up in traditional Catholic families, he and his wife were always curious about spiritual guidance.

“In my case, I had a very deep and unfulfilled yearning for ‘something’—in other words, I knew there was some significant purpose in each and every life. But, so far, I had only experienced just enough to keep me searching.” As a result, he kept exploring and trying to improve himself, since he knew he was not perfect.

It was a long, arduous journey. Many years passed, yet he only experienced losses. He had no choice but to give up. Still, he waited, although he did not know when, if ever, it would come.

Then the book of Zhuan Falun arrived. “My habit with such books was to speed read a page here and there and more often than not reject it as I just knew the answer was not there,” said Ford. “But, with Zhuan Falun it was immediately different,” he said, adding that the profoundness of the book was astonishing. “Things that I had never seen articulated in any manner before, things that I knew but did not know that I knew, were all laid out there so clearly.”

He read Zhuan Falun every day over the past 20 years and could even recite some sections. “I discovered that the root of all my problems was selfishness—a preoccupation with self. It goes—Me! Me! Me! —first and foremost before all else. It is all unconscious and goes with me, controlling me throughout my life.” Through continued study of Zhuan Falun, he learned to look inside himself to find the root of each and every problem.

“Now,” he said, “I understand that there are only three questions to ask myself based on the principles Master Li teaches: Am I truthful? Am I thinking of others before myself? Can I forbear? Truth, Compassion and Forbearance are the secret of life,” he concluded.
Artist: Ultimate Truth

Painter Barbara Shafer and her recent artwork

Barbara Shafer, a Polish Australian artist, still remembers the accident very well. It was November 11, 2003, and she was repairing a church mural. Somehow she fell from the 7-meter-tall scaffolding. Her head hit the ground. “With my skull broken into three pieces, nose smashed, knees and hands having had a comminuted fracture, I was on the verge of death. Doctors said there was zero chance of recovery,” Shafer recalled.

She survived the surgeries and had stitches from head to toe, including seven stitches in her face. “I was like a robot with broken parts,” she said. Many reinforcing metal plates, screws, and nuts were installed inside her body. All her teeth were stabilized with metal wires. Her two eyes looked in different directions, and her left ear was deaf. Her left hand was numb, and she heard constant, machine-like noises in her head.

On top of extreme pain, she began to suffer memory loss. Even after two more surgeries, spinal fluid still came out from the back of her throat.

Seeing her struggling with no hope, a friend recommended her to study Falun Dafa. When she read Zhuan Falun the first time, she tried hard to focus her eyesight on the book, and it was still blurry. “But, I did not give up,” recalled Shafer. “The next day, I noticed my eyesight had improved, allowing me to finish the first lecture.” Then, she read the next lecture and so on—she was drawn to the content.

On the third day, something unusual happened: “I felt a strong energy moving up from my fingers along my arms—like an electric current, and it took away all problems, including pain, complications after the surgery, spinal fluid, and so on,” she recalled. “Even the noise in my head, the constant sound like a machine running, was gone, and it never came back.”

Four months after beginning to practice Falun Dafa, Shafer returned to the scaffolding and was able to do the work she really loves. Not only were her injuries related to the accident cured, but her previous health issues also disappeared, including digestive problems, migraines, and allergies.

Furthermore, her mental improvement was also dramatic. She no longer suffered from anxiety or depression. People around her said she became more considerate and displayed a peaceful mind.

Looking back at what she had been through, Shafer is very touched and grateful. “I believe that Zhuan Falun is the ultimate truth—this is the truth that people have been waiting for for many, many years,” she said.

She hopes more people will practice Falun Dafa and benefit from it. She is especially thankful to Master Li for all she experienced. “To me, Falun Dafa is the hope for humanity given by heaven in the declining period of our civilization.”
