Current Event Commentary
Jiang's mouthpiece media in China slanders the Buddha Fa and poisons the minds of hundreds of millions of people. Recently, many people have experienced poisoning in China. In the first season of this year alone, 14 large-scale food-poisoning incidents took place, and most of the victims were children and students. The Jiang and Luo Group make up lies to slander Dafa. They also purposely poison the minds of innocent children who don't know the truth. People bearing enmity against "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance," the law of the cosmos that created all beings, are facing extreme danger in their lives. [Note, this is one example of how the Chinese government brings man-made disasters to the people by persecuting the good people who practice "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance"]

The head monk of the Jade Buddhist Monastery told Huang Ju, the Mayor, that a crocodile was beneath the ground and that was why the ground could not be broken. In response, the Mayor decided to have a rite perform to break the spell. It was said that as a result of the rite the crocodile had to flee for its life. Afterward, the head monk urged Huang to sculpt nine crocodiles on the pillar. He died a few days later.

The Truth and People's Minds
One night a Chongqing Dafa practitioner was putting up posters when the security guard at a gate threatened to call 110 (the equivalent of 911 in China) to report him to the police. The practitioner explained to him the principles of retribution. The security guard was scared and put down the telephone. The next day the practitioner went out to put up posters. The guard came to threaten him again. The practitioner asked him: "Did you forget what I told you yesterday? Call 110 if you please, I will put up the poster right way." He said: "Ok, Ok. I would never interfere."
