Resist Defamation of Clearwisdom Net
(Clearwisdom.net) Before June 2001, under the frenzied persecution by the evil some practitioners went astray due to their attachments or fear. However, many steadfast Dafa practitioners risked their lives to download Master's new articles and other articles from Clearwisdom Net, which helped quite a few such practitioners who had gone astray to get back on track.
However, some people have been spreading a message recently saying, "Do things according the Fa, there is no need to look at Clearwisdom Net," and use this as an excuse to keep their comfortable lifestyles and self-interests. They refuse to look at Clearwisdom Net and Master's new articles. They have even gone so far as to say that Master's new articles posted on Clearwisdom Net are fabricated.
People who have enlightened along evil paths often create ridiculous reasons for their actions. They are unwilling to read articles from Clearwisdom Net and Master's new articles posted there. The real reason behind this is that the old forces do not want them to read the articles, because once they read the articles they would awaken from their evil enlightenment.
The following are some of my personal views on this issue:
1. Zhuan Falun is a heavenly book, guiding us to cultivate. Master has put all the principles, from the lowest to the highest levels, into this book. With many attachments remaining, we cannot understand the Fa well without constant study. Master's new articles guide us to keep in the right direction in Fa-rectification cultivation and are an integral part of the Fa. In the current situation, we must study both Zhuan Falun and Master's new articles well.
2. "Truth, Compassion, Forbearance" and Zhuan Falun are inseparable components of the whole, Falun Dafa. Master has pointed out at length that, "Falun Dafa has for the first time throughout the ages provided the nature of the universe - the Buddha Fa - to human beings" ("The Teachings in Buddhism are the Weakest and Tiniest Portion of the Buddha Fa") and also "What is the Buddha Fa, then? The most fundamental characteristic of this universe, Zhen-Shan-Ren, is the highest manifestation of the Buddha Fa. It is the most fundamental Buddha Fa." (Zhuan Falun) We know that many people who have enlightened along evil paths separate "Truth, Compassion, Forbearance" from Dafa. They are using their crafty and degenerated human notions to cover up their attachments and cite their poor understanding to justify their evil path!
3. Master has emphasized time and time again via Clearwisdom Net and in his new articles that we should closely follow Clearwisdom Net when something is not clear. To those who have enlightened along evil paths, Master further pointed out in "Suggestion" that they "even defame Clearwisdom Net which publishes positive Dafa articles." [unofficial translation] Master also said in "Lecture on the Fa at the Washington, D.C. International Conference in 2001," "Judging from the articles on the Clearwisdom website and the Dafa disciples' articles on the Pureinsight website and in other media, I'd say that some of the articles you've written are masterpieces--they are well-reasoned, their ideas are backed up, they demonstrate clear thinking, and their logic is strong. They have truly shocked and intimidated the evil, and their caliber is high. When those lie-breeding media in Mainland China are measured with the standard we have now, I'd say they're no good." On June 12, 2001, Clearwisdom published two recent photos of Master where he demonstrates sending forth righteous thoughts. Master reminded Dafa disciples in "Deter Interference," "It was I who taught the Fa to you. My Law Bodies are only the image of my thoughts, while I am the principal being. Can people who don't even recognize me still be Dafa disciples?" If a person refuses to recognize Clearwisdom Net and Master's new articles, and even goes so far as not to recognize Master, could this person still be a Dafa practitioner?
4. Most of the articles posted on Clearwisdom Net are experiences shared by practitioners inside or outside China, how to rectify the Fa and how to clarify the truth under current circumstances. Through such sharing we can learn from each other's good experience or discover how we can do better in future.
Many practitioners have, step by step, walked away from their wrong path with help and guidance from Clearwisdom Net and Master's new articles. They have cut off the root of their evil enlightenment bit by bit, to rejoin the immense current of Fa rectification. We should be persistent in reading articles from Clearwisdom Net, jointly resist the undercurrents of evil enlightenment and make us indestructible as a whole.
