Clarifying the Truth In All Situations, Saving All Lives
Remembering Yuan Jiang: The police tortured practitioner Yuan Jiang while interrogating him. For two months, the police used all available torture devices and methods, but failed in their goal. The brutal killing didn't make other practitioners flinch or lose heart. Instead, practitioners wiped away their tears and worked even more actively than before. After Yuan Jiang died, the demand for truth-clarifying materials in Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia, and Xingjiang Provinces has doubled. This is absolutely beyond the expectation of the murderers.
One practitioner's husband changed from being afraid and against his wife's doing Dafa activities to supporting and helping her post and distribute truth materials. Many practitioners used their wisdom and rationality to explain to him the truth and let him recognize that practicing Falun Dafa is not just an issue of belief, and what the Teacher has said all truly exists. "Belief" is the starting point for cultivation and assimilation in Dafa.
Jiang Zemin made himself the enemy of the world by persecuting Falun Gong. Falun Gong books have been translated into 30 different languages and spread widely in over 40 countries. It has a great number of steadfast Western followers. The 36 western practitioners from 12 countries that peacefully protested in Tiananmen Square have made the international community aware that Jiang Zemin is infringing upon the human rights of the citizens of the world.

Today, 126 people published solemn announcements stating that all their words and actions under the evil's persecution and pressure that didn't conform to Dafa are void.

Practitioners in Harbin City congratulate the founding of Falun Dafa Associations in Belgium, Austria and Israel. Practitioners in Anhui Province, Dalian City, Shenzhen City, Jiangxi Province, and Guangdong Province salute the Western practitioners for coming to Tiananmen Square to rectify the Fa.
A practitioner often uses the story of his 76-year-old mother diligently practicing Falun Gong by herself in order to encourage young people who claim they "are not able to learn (Falun Gong)" and to open their awareness to cherish the opportunity to obtain the Fa.
On October 27, I went to Tiananmen Square and unfurled a banner, shouting, "Falun Dafa is good!" I was arrested and sent to Huairou County Detention Center and was severely tortured both physically and mentally. I used reason and wisdom to clarify the truth and finally I got out of the demon's den with righteous belief.
I went to Tiananmen Square on October 27, 2001 where I unfurled a banner, calling out "Falun Dafa is good." I was then detained in the custodial center in Huairou County in Beijing. Though I suffered from mental and physical torture, I kept on clarifying the truth to people with wisdom and rationality. Finally, I managed to get out of the custodial center with a righteous mind.
Stories in Clarifying the Truth to People
A practitioner went to the police station for some business. The chief officer greeted her by asking, "Are you still practicing Falun Gong?" She said solemnly, "Yes. Don't you follow Jiang Zemin or help the evil." After she finished the business, she clarified the truth to the policeman in charge of the residential area. The policeman said, "I know you practitioners are good people. We just try to wink at you." (note: he means that the policemen in their station try not to use a strict hand to stop people from practicing).
A mother and her son from a city in northeastern China went to Beijing to validate Falun Dafa. They unfurled banners in different places in Tiananmen Square and called out from the bottom of their hearts, "Falun Dafa is good." The young practitioner was calling and running on the square. Suddenly he saw his mother being captured and he stopped. The policeman grabbed him and searched his body, but at the same time, said to him in a low voice, "Run quickly. You run away quickly!"
We ought to deny the evil persecution that appears in the form of scabies. We should persistently live up to the requirements of Dafa, to consolidate our righteous minds, to find out the deeply buried attachments of tolerating the evil's persecution to Dafa, so as to get rid of them and eliminate the evil.
A female practitioner's mother-in-law was ill and she had to spend a lot of time taking care of her. Later this practitioner realized that everything that hinders Fa-rectification is the old evil forces' arrangement. So she sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate evil and started to teach her mother-in-law to do the Dafa exercises. In no more than half a month, her mother-in-law completely recovered. The moral here is that so long as we can break through the old evil forces' arrangement, the great Buddha Fa will create miracles in the human world.
Life is precious, however, it's more important to discern good and bad (continued): this person's house was ransacked and he had been arrested many times and subjected to various tortures. During the last 2 years, he had moved over 10 times [to avoid being taken away by the evil]. He had arranged lodging for numerous practitioners who came to Beijing to appeal, and he had heard many touching Fa-rectification stories.
