(Clearwisdom.net) One day I came across a couple on the street when I was taking a walk. When I talked with them, I learned that the husband had joined the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) when he was in the army and the wife had joined in the Communist Youth League. I then talked with them about quitting the CCP to secure a good future and urged them to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. After a little while, they agreed to quit. In the end I talked about Falun Gong with them. They said emotionally: "Frankly speaking, Falun Gong is good. In this messy society, only Falun Gong remains clean and pure and gives people inspiration and encouragement to keep going. Falun Gong practitioners are trustworthy and I feel really good when I am with them." At this point he changed his tone and sighed with regret: "If only you had not gone to besiege Zhongnanhai, the CCP would not have persecuted you."

From his words I knew he was still unaware of the fundamental truth about the event on April 25, 1999, when 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners went to the Chinese central government in Zhongnanhai to appeal for Falun Gong. They are still deceived by the propaganda in TV programs of the CCP and misunderstood the whole event. I then told them the direct cause of the event.

After that I told them more about the whole story: "Did you know? The Zhongnanhai event happened in 1999, but the CCP's suppression of Falun Gong can be traced back to 1996? " I then told them the event of Guangming Daily, which, long before 1999, resulted in the banning of the publishing of Falun Gong books and the labeling of Falun Gong as an "evil cult" in closed-door meetings of CCP leaders. Hearing all this, they came to understand the whole story and said: "Oh, it is like that! We never knew that before!"

In the past few years of truth clarification, I have found that many people knew about the event on April 25, 1999 but did not know the whole story. Many people do not know well other basic things like the staged self-immolation incident in Tiananmen Square, for which they hold a negative opinion against Falun Gong and failed to see through the CCP's lies against Falun Gong. In our truth clarification we should do well in clarifying the basic facts about such events, which people had heard about before, but do not really comprehend.

In this aspect Teacher has taught us:

"No matter how many years you spend clarifying the facts, that is the most fundamental content that you always need to explain. Many people don't comprehend what Falun Gong is about due to their lack of basic knowledge, and so this will always be something that you need to explain." ("Fa Teaching Given at the Fa Conference Marking the Tenth Anniversary of the Minghui Website's Founding")

Certainly, more and more people came to understand the truth about Falun Gong after many years of truth clarification by Dafa practitioners, but the CCP's lies against Falun Gong are being spread through various channels like textbooks, publicity columns and posters. Many people are still deceived because of the circulation of such lies. To clear up the CCP's lies and make people comprehend what Falun Gong is, we must explain to them the fundamental things about Falun Gong, so that more people can be saved. To that end I suggest that we take seriously the content of the basic truth about Falun Gong in our materials. We should not consider it to be something repetitive and meaningless or move on to something else after using them several times. Many people may not be able to read our materials all the time.

To make truth clarification more effective, I suggest that we consider the "famous brand" effect in making truth clarification materials. The material should be precise and professional and should gradually become a "famous brand" widely accepted by the public. Through that way we can concentrate our efforts and do better in our cooperation and saving sentient beings, just like what Teacher taught us:

"It's just like when this fist goes out--it's strong when everyone is clenched together. (Master makes a fist.) But if you're saying that this one wants to do this, that one wants to do that, and the next one something else (spreading the five fingers apart and pointing to each finger), then that's weak, and as soon as it goes out, it will be repelled, right? " ("Fa Teaching at the 2009 Greater New York International Fa Conference")

From the sharing among fellow practitioners and the feedback from the readers in the past few months, we can see that the truth clarification materials published on Minghui are well-designed. Besides the materials made by local practitioners, we also distribute the materials from Minghui Weekly and they work together very well in exposing and suppressing the evil. I hope that fellow practitioners will offer their good ideas and suggestions back to Minghui so that our materials can be made even better.

Benefiting quite a lot from the excellent materials from Minghui, practitioners from our city normally do not make their own truth clarification materials anymore except for some special cases. In this way we save quite a lot of time so that we can devote more energy to other projects to save sentient beings. Our task of truth clarification and saving sentient beings is urgent, so let us do well our part in assisting Teacher in Fa rectification.

Above are just some personal understandings, please kindly point out anything improper.
