Opening Remarks

First and foremost, let's pay the highest respect to our greatest and most compassionate Teacher!

Second, our most cordial greetings to our fellow practitioners in Mainland China, who persevere in manifesting the greatness of the Fa under the most inconceivable pressure and persecution!

Third, our most sincere greetings to our fellow practitioners who have journeyed far to join us in this special event.

Looking up at the immense sky, we cannot help wondering which part of the universe each of us has come from?

We have once made our most honorable promise before the Lord Buddha to one day help him rectify the Fa. To carry out our common promise, we have descended to the human realm.

Across countless generations of reincarnating and living on earth, we have, for more than five thousand years, left mankind a divine culture.

We have waited for millions and billions of years to acquire the Fa in this very period of human history.

From the moment we acquired the Fa, we embarked upon our journey home and began to reveal our beautiful nature that had been shrouded in dust within the human realm.

As the universe approached its death, our most compassionate Teacher has given it a new life. For this enormous blessing, the universe is forever indebted to our Teacher.

However, the old forces have committed the most appalling crime of damaging the Fa and pushing themselves beyond the salvation of the Lord Buddha.

They naively tried to test the Lord of the universe.
They naively tried to destroy the last hope of the universe.

As particles of the Fa, how can we Dafa disciples forget our allegiance in this pivotal moment when the old forces try to damage the Fa and the universe?

Thus, we have been safeguarding the Fa with our lives, never for a moment intimidated by the demonic obstacles!

In the face of the demonic lies that have enveloped heaven and earth, Dafa disciples have stepped out to clarify the truth about Dafa and destroy the evil from its root.

Nothing—not kidnapping, torture, or murder—can prevent Dafa disciples from carrying out our most sacred mission of safeguarding the Fa.

Nothing—not attempted brainwashing or vicious lies and slander—can make us forget our most glorious Teacher.

The malevolence of the brutal persecution, like vicious thunder and lightning, has been forced upon Dafa practitioners for four years.

Now the brutal persecution is coming to the end.

The final trial for the evil is at hand.

All sentient beings who have accepted the salvation of the Fa are ready to embark upon the Fa boat, boarding for paradise, for their true home.

"The endless journey is coming to a close
And the pervasive haze is gradually dispersing."
The epic Fa-rectification has progressed to this final chapter.

Dafa particles, let us merge into one perfect and eternal body in Fa-rectification efforts.

Let's seize all remaining pre-destined opportunities.
Let's manifest our immense compassion.
Let's make good use of the wisdom that the Fa has bestowed upon us.
Let's continue to clarify the truth about Falun Gong and shatter the evil lies.
Let's continue to send forth righteous thoughts and eliminate all remaining rotten ghouls.

We shall carry out our divine pledge in Fa-rectification efforts.
We shall fulfill our glory in Fa-rectification efforts.
We shall fulfill our most sacred promise as Dafa disciples.
We shall complete the most magnificent chapter in the history of the universe.

Closing Remarks

As the 2003 Washington D.C. Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference concludes, let us express our most heartfelt gratitude for Teacher's Fa lecture and compassionate salvation through our sincere applause.

"Through countless years of searching and waiting,
Now I have finally met Teacher in person.
Having acquired the Fa, I must cultivate my way back to my true home.
I must reach consummation and return to my true home with Teacher."

What an enormous pre-destined opportunity we have to listen to Teacher's lecture in person!
How fortunate we are to be able to witness the majesty of Lord Buddha.

The Fa of the old universe, namely formation-stasis-degeneration-destruction, caused all lives to degenerate toward the end of the universe.
Countless sentient beings and the lords of those sentient beings were doomed with the destruction of the universe.

It is our compassionate Teacher that has taught us the truth that is capable of changing the deadly fate of the universe.
It is the magnificent Buddha Fa that has constructed the ladder that leads all sentient beings to salvation.

The lords of colossal celestial bodies had once made Teacher the most sacred promise:
To be willing to endure, without regrets or complaints, the abyss of hardships during countless incarnations in order to assist Teacher in rectifying the Fa.

During thousands of billions of incarnations, the seas had become dry land.
But the infinity of time could not wipe from our memory the anticipation of countless sentient beings or the sacredness of our pledge.

The old forces persist in acting against the will of the universe, creating chaos in the human realm with brutality and lies.
Yet the Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples remain greatly compassionate and tolerant.
Their efforts to safeguard the Fa have become an epic written with their blood and lives.

"On either shore the gibbons' chatter sounds without pause, while my light boat skims past thousands of crags."
The most significant play in the history of the universe is coming to an end.
All of the Dafa disciples that have reached the standard of consummation shall return to their respective homes in triumph and hearty laughter.

Dafa disciples, let us perfect our efforts during the final stage of Fa-rectification.
Let us continue to offer salvation to sentient beings and make greater strides in cultivation,
so as to prepare ourselves for the advent of Fa-rectification in the human realm, which the whole universe will celebrate together!
