Introduce the Minghui Website When Telling People about Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) Canadian Falun Dafa practitioners have produced many printout materials and videos to tell people about Falun Dafa. But most of them didn’t mention the Minghui website. I think we should include Minghui in those materials.
Master told us, among the media that Falun Dafa practitioners run, “only Minghui.org serves as a window into Dafa for the outside world...” (“2018 Fa Teaching Given in Washington, D.C.” Team Yellow Translation)
Besides Chinese language, Minghui offers another 19 languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Farsi, Hebrew, Bosanski, Croatian, Indonesian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovenian, Turkey, Vietnamese, and Serbian. It covers a variety of topics, from the introduction of Falun Dafa, daily updates of the persecution in China, news and events, traditional Chinese culture, and practitioners’ experiences and sharing.
The Minghui website also offers contents about the 10,000 practitioners’ appeal in Beijing on April 25, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s staged self-immolation hoax, the fabricated 1,400 suicides, and death cases, as well as practitioners’ various undertakings in counteracting the persecution, including lawsuits against former CCP head Jiang Zemin, and quitting the CCP. It is also the only website entrusted by Master Li (Falun Dafa's founder) to publish new Dafa lectures.
Reading the Minghui website can help remove everyday people’s unrighteous notions and expose the CCP’s lies. People might also be moved by Dafa’s mighty power and practitioners’ compassion, and stay away from the CCP’s lies.
In my own case, I started Falun Dafa cultivation after reading the Minghui website.
Master has confirmed Minghui’s values in several Fa lectures.
“And actually, even right now many major media, the intelligence agencies of most every country, and the organizations and individuals in each country that care about human rights in China are all visiting Minghui.org, and following it with interest.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the Fa Conference Marking the Tenth Anniversary of Minghui’s Founding,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. X)
At the “Fa Teaching at the 2019 New York Fa Conference” (Team Yellow Translation), Master affirmed that people can read and understand articles on the Minghui website:
“Question: There have always been some practitioners outside of China who maintain that Minghui.org isn’t suitable for ordinary people and refuse to promote it, and this has gone on for twenty years. Minghui.org has always met with a good deal of resistance among practitioners outside of China, whereas inside of China its importance is well recognized and endorsed. We have been trying to think of a way to resolve this issue.
Master: There is indeed some content on Minghui.org that is meant for practitioners to read and share with one another, and if an ordinary person’s spiritual level isn’t there, it won’t make sense to him or her. Yet there are some articles that can be shared with non-practitioners. But there are always people who make things more complicated than they need to be. Although Minghui.org is a forum for our spiritual community with discussions on how practitioners can elevate their character, there are some regular people who can understand it.
The people in this world are of different calibers. There are differences even among the common people you see walking down the street. Some have better morals than others and view things differently than others. And some have even higher morals still, and look at things even more differently. Some people have special powers, and in some cases they have extraordinary abilities. There are large numbers of people like this, and they are of different ranks, even. Those who have the same special powers contact one another, and those with greater powers are in another league of their own, and they have the ability to contact one another, too. The human world is not as simple as people think. Don’t let rigid notions affect how you see the world.”
Master also pointed out:
“Minghui's main feature is that it reports primarily on the facts of the persecution of Dafa disciples in mainland China. Those reports are first-hand information that exposes the evil, and over 99 percent--or even up to 100 percent--of the reported information is accurate. It is distinct from the other, conventional media. You can translate the facts [it reports] into multiple languages and post them on the Internet. If you have the ability and the resources, you can do that, and you can create Minghui websites in multiple languages so that people all over the world can see the daily content on Minghui.” (Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles)
To me, the articles on the Minghui website are well-written and can have a positive effect in helping people to understand Dafa.
Therefore, I recommend that we Dafa disciples introduce the Minghui website to everyday people when telling them about Dafa.
