Make Good Use of Time to Clarify the Truth to Precious Chinese People
We distributed truth clarification materials during the Changchun City Agriculture Exhibition. Many people gathered at the exhibit, so a practitioner proposed that we place the flyers into people's hands. When we arrived at the crowded exhibition, several of us distributed flyers as we walked among people. Everyone was willing to take it and no one refused. Their clear-minded side knows it's good. Soon, I gave out all my flyers. I truly felt that Master is benevolently protecting disciples and giving us opportunities to build mighty virtue, and give people the opportunity to be saved.
Current Event Comment
A professor at Tokyo's Industrial University and also a representative of a support organization for Falun Gong asylum seekers wrote to the Minister of the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Japan, in which he requested help to rescue Kaneko Yuko, who is currently being forcibly detained at a detention center in Beijing. He pointed out that if Kaneko Yuko is tortured for a long time, her mind might not return to normal, and her life will also be at risk.
The professor pointed out in his letter that the Chinese Jiang government's persecution of Falun Gong is not only a great human rights issue that is being condemned by the international community, but is also a great diplomatic issue.
The U.S House of Representatives unanimously passed a resolution, urging the Chinese government to stop its persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. During a meeting of the World Psychiatric Association, psychiatric experts made urgent calls on China to stop abusing psychiatric treatments to torture Falun Gong practitioners.
The Purpose of History
History, like a theatrical drama, truthfully and profoundly illustrates heavenly principles and human principles through its scenes and storylines. History shocks human beings, imprinting principles on their minds, enriching humans' thoughts and wisdom. After the conclusion of historical events, people are more rationally able to tell right from wrong. During history, human beings watch part one of the drama and become the actors in part two, which may involve entire lifetimes. In 1999, history arranged the script of the persecution of Falun Gong by the evil dictator. People have forgotten this shock that history has brought about, unaware that they themselves are no longer the audience, but are now the actors. The alarm and suffering during the ten year calamity of the Cultural Revolution did not awaken those who were in that drama. Instead, they became apathetic and dispirited. If they don't awaken now, when the curtain closes on the current scene, their lives in the drama will fade away and disappear in confusion and regret.
