I was like that until eventually I discovered that, it is true, it is true that as I read one word, sometimes in my thoughts〞or a feeling〞I can feel a kind of broad dimension, and this is coming from the word itself.

I would feel a very broader space. //It is the character itself. On the surface, it has another meaning and I would be enlightened from by it to some degree.

On the other hand, Zhuan Falun also has also has another characteristic: it is not like other books which are very difficult to read. On the contrary, it uses colloquialism so that //people from every different levelwalks of lives in in the society //are will be able to understand Falun Dafa*s cultivation principles clearly. 


(Zhang Li*s voice Time: 09:35-10:20,)﹛﹛﹛﹛

I felt that the book is using colloquialism and I found that some of my friends had some barriers in their reading of itin Fa study[J29] . . The reason was because tThey he thought a Fa book [J30] book like this should be very complicated. //They found it hard to believe that such simple words can contain such deep inner meaningby using colloquialism can have very deep theory[J31] .. //Generally, I would tell told them this is why the great part of Teacher Li is so great and //this is where why he is so remarkable marvelous at.

[J33]  W When he taught thise practice in China, it was at the later periodtime when qigong was at its peak of its popularity., Iit was meant to pass on to many people, and it was in large auditoriums where extremely large number of people came to listen to the lectures. At the very beginning, it was the periodtime of a greatQigong u upsurge in the interest in qigong. , hHe wanted to spread the Fa practice to more people and there were many people attending the lectures in large auditoriums. [J34] At thatIn a place like that, there were people with higher very high education and also many ordinary people with ordinary education. So, he used very simple sentences languages to explain very such profound deep principalsles. (Dafa practitioner: Zhang Li)

Zhang Li expresses that because it is because the principlesal of Falun Dafa points directly targetto[J35]   people*s hearts, and because it is so pure, that she has been very firm in her path of practiceon her cultivation road[J36] . This is the first reason. // On the other hand, learning Falun Dafa is totally free and this had alsowhich  made a deep impression on her.also gave her a very deep impression[J37] .

One point I want to let you know about 'Madame Butterfly' and 'Tosca' in
this movie.

They appeared in 5th paragraph, when Zhang Li talked about the roles she
played in opera.(pls see the attached. I highlighted it.) I searched Internet and found out the two are main roles in two different operas, but not the same person.

Tosca is not the lover of Madame Butterfly, So the changes made to the
original is not right.

The fact is Tosca, for her lover, she killed that Roman Chief-of-police,
(played baritone in the opera. )
 -- by Wenhui

And Just to let you know, the 4th paragraph of the Narrator
(12:05 sth.), it is not that the Narrator directly
asked questions to Zhang Li. So the change of 'her' to
'you' may not accurately reflect the Chinese one.

(Ms. Zhang Li Zhang, Yyoung, 10:30- [08:41-09:13] ) //Teacher gives a direction or a criteria, it is so righteous, and it is achievable. Gradually you can get thereould be there, this is how it it should be like that. The second reason [RA38] is// that this practice does not charge anythinga penny, . //I wasThis very deeply impressed about  methis in at the beginning. //Because there are too many things, although no matter how they claim that they don*t charge you, anything, you still need to donate.//, Yyou need to donate something to keep them functional, or to cover their expenses, bto keep them functional. But Falun Gong does not ask for anything. (Dafa practitioner, Zhang Li)//


(Narrator, young female, 11:05- [09:14-09:32] ) ///Indeed, no charge and no donation are among the main reasons that Falun Dafa could be spread righteously. In many Dafa books like Zhuan Falun, or Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa, //Teacher Li repeatedly mentioned that Falun Dafa practitioners teach the practice voluntarily without charging any fee.//


 (Ms. Zhang Li Zhang, 11:28- [09:33-10:12] ) //Especially later when I read Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa and Essentials For Further Advancement, //in theose books practitioners in certain areas asked questions about specific things and Teacher answered them. They were explained so well and so righteously//#because it is not just merely a book//#Some people may write a book, and present a bunch of theories or philosophies that sound really good. //But actually they don*t do itact that way. When I read Teacher Li*s lecturestalking about how to do well, I can feel that this is absolutely righteous. (Dafa practitioner, Zhang Li Zhang)//


(Narrator, young female 12:05-[10:13-12:05] ) //Besides sharing with us her experiences of growing-up journey  and experience of practicing Falun Dafa, ///we invitedupon our invitation, the cheerful girl, Zhang Li Zhang, to sing also sang a well-known country folk song with us, named <Autumn Cicada>. //Accompanied with piano and violin, her beautiful and harmonious voice seemed to bring back the pure age when the country music was really popular. (sing together for a long time-until 13:29 [11:36]///) What we arefeel most curious about Zhang Li Zhang, is the changes in yourher understanding toward of music and songs after practicing Falun Dafa. Because what Falun Dafa brings improvement to practitioners is elevation improvement of both body and mind at the same time, //and it requires that practitioners do well in their work and daily life, take lightly of personal fame, //profits and desires lightly and improve their own moral standard. ///What changes have benefited you Benefited both mentally and physically, what changes has does Zhang Li Zhang havemade compared to before?//


(Ms. Zhang Li Zhang, 13:56- [12:06-13:08] ) //Because my voice belongs to the broad soprano, that is different from the fast and cheerful type. That type is suitable for comedies, or some pitiful roles but eventually could be saved. What kind of role do I play? Someone that will die, will die at the end. So I asked what could I do? The role that I play will eventually die. For example, in the <LMadamady Butterfly[JJ39] > she committed suicide over lovebecause of love. //Tosca, for her lover, she even killed himthat baritone,// of course, he was a ruffian in the Roman Empire period, a police director.// But the problem is that it she is too cruel,// because of love [how can Ishe] killed him? . At the end, to avoid humiliation she even committed suicide by jumping from the castle, and there are many other things. Before practicing Falun Dafa Then I worried what I should I do. //Afterwards, learning Falun Dafa I wondered how could I play this role? With no feelings no facial expression how could I sing it?//  After that, Wwhen I look back I am amusedfeel amusing because I am not worried any more. (Dafa practitioner, Zhang Li Zhang)//


(Ms. Zhang Li Zhang, 15:03-[13:09-15:48] ) //Because I feel after studying the teachings of Dafa and practicing the cultivationexercises, my heart //is calmer and I can see things more clearly. //There is one more advantage for actors and /actresses, I must say. After practicing and , after studying Falun Dafathe Fa, one won*t be so nervous, although still a bit excited. Because as we actors and /actresses we all like to show off, like to express, but such a strong desire also makes us become feel nervous easily. For we are very afraid that we can not act well, so after practicing Dafa// gradually we willI*ve let go of this sentimentheart. I*ve already try tried my best to let it go, so nowat present, //I could not have a better state than practicing Dafa. I just act, use my whole- heartedly, . I sing for you, I play for you, I sing for you, with a clear mind. So when we singplay this opera, or play theis piano, //I think it is the same for the piano, when we try to convey the idea, the content, we do it calmly. //It is not withoutlike with no feeling, it is more expressive with deeper and clearer understanding, //and I believe it is more attractive too. //(music playing for a while, 16:23-17:22 [14:27-15:32]///) So, to artists or actors/actresses, [RA40] //the spiritual lift elevation after practicing Falun Dafa enables practitioners to remain calm and harmonious, so to treating the show with a calm heart and makes the play even better. (Dafa practitioner, Zhang Li Zhang)// 


(Ms. Zhang Li Zhang, 17:41-[15:49-16:33] ) //I have a very good friend who is a pianist, an excellent pianist, but he gets nervous easily. I believe the nervousness doesn*t come from fear, just eager to be successful. Because as an artist, we*ve worked diligently for more than ten years, twenty years or even thirty years, //days and nights; of course it is not that serious, I just describe in it that way. All of our effort is just for that night*s show,/// that one or two hours, should be our peak performance. //So that kind of pressure and that kind of excitement, yes, you will feel excitingexcited. Because the audience will applaud for you, it is hard to describe that feeling to others. So now I think I should introduce Falun Gong to him.//


(Narrator, young female, 18:24- [16:34-17:04]) //From Zhang Li Zhang*s talking and song we deeply sensed the classic beauty of ancient times. ///However, with the upgrading of modern science, and degeneration of ancient mankind human civilization and decline of moral standard, the conventional concepts of mankind also change greatly. //The pursuit and understanding toward of beauty change a lot as well. //The pursuit and experience toward of beauty is not merely a method or a technique, ////it involves people*s mind and spirituality part. If people*s spirituality part changes, it will be reflected in their understanding of beauty and ugliness.//


(Ms. Zhang Li Zhang, 19:00-[17:05-17:34] ) //I think at present the so-called art has been abused by people. What on earth is art?// For example, and it is an example of several years ago, in a certain country, it is an advanced country in Europe, they showed the opera <Princess Dulando[JJ42][RA41]  >. //At the very beginning of the story, the Persia prince needed to come out to be killed, so he came out from his closetthes cabinet, and he was completely naked. Then they thought that it was a background design of the modern show. It is just unbelievable.//


(Ms. Zhang Li Zhang, 19:26- [17:35-18:09]) //This is also why many musicians can*t make progress, because they don*t know where to go. People all believe that we play the same music, there are so many people playing the same music in the world, but why are some of them are especially touching? //In this country there are so many of us studying music, and many parents out of a very kind heart intention want their children to study music, //so they would have a happier and better life. But on the other hand, //some people already forget how music could make their life better. //(Narrator, young female, 20:02- [18:10-18:21]) Because of the dramatic change of human heart, many modern arts are actually developing in to the opposite direction. The symptom is pursuing to be novel and different without any limitation, and break through all moral regulationscode. (Dafa practitioner, Zhang Li Zhang)//


(Narrator, young female, 20:14- [18:22-18:36] ) //After practicing Falun Dafa, Zhang Li Zhang can better convey the beauty of music in her opera or in playing the piano play. To the deviated art performance or music, she can also differentiate and rectify it properly.//


(Narrator, young female, 20:28- [18:37-19:12]) //Don*t think it is unreal, I tell you that in Vienna, the capital of music; of course such music nobody would like to listen, so they only play broadcast it in the early morning, that is, right after the midnight. Once by chance my friends and I listened to the radio, and they said they would play a newly composed musical piece named <It is not a | vacuum cleaner>. I tell you, in the three minutes that it played it sounded exactly like a working vacuum cleaner. Is this called music? My friends said that they could admit that they are creators, but definitely not composers.// 


(Narrator, young female, 21:04- [19:13-19:58]) //In fact, the creation and renovation of future culture lay between you and us. //The value of art depends on the harmonious integration of formalities of art and moral values. //There is no beauty of art without a compassionate heart, and in turn, //the beauty of art could foster and tend people*s kind nature and moral values./// Art does not only provide people with an elegant and civilized outlook on the surface, //but should also help to develop moral standards and the inner charm of people*s character. //Today*s art has already mutated, //and only through improving people*s moral value, using the true nature and a compassionate heart, could the beauty of art be truly sensed. //Falun Dafa, the returning path to the original, true self, and the principle of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance are probably the keys to bring back the true nature of art.// (voice ended at 21:48 [19:58], followed by music to 24:20 [21:39])

 [JJ39] I am not sure if this is the correct title for this famous novel.  Madam Butterfly is a famous Opera.  I think this might be what she is referring to.
