[] When Zeng
Shen's mother was weaving at home, suddenly a person came to her and
said, "Good heaven!  Zeng Shen killed someone!"

Zeng's mother was very surprised.  She thought that her son was a
very kind person.  It was impossible that Zeng Shen would kill
someone.  So she immediately said, "Impossible.  Zeng would
not kill anyone."

After a while, another person came and said, "My God!  Zeng Shen killed someone!"

Zeng's mother still said, "Impossible.  Zeng Shen wouldn't kill
anyone."  However, two more people came and said the same
thing.  She started questioning her judgment.  She still
trusted that Zeng Shen wouldn't kill anybody.  However, she
couldn't continue weaving any more.  She started anxiously
anticipating Zeng Shen's coming home.

After a while, another person came.  This time, it was their
neighbor.  She couldn't hold her breath and said, "Good
grief!  Zeng Shen killed someone.  He has been
arrested.  It is said that he's being interrogated now. 
Quick!  Let's think about what to do!"

Zeng's mother now believed that her son killed someone.  She
cried.  Due to the family punishment regulation, when a family
member violated the law, the entire family would be penalized. 
Everyone advised Zeng's mother to flee quickly to avoid being arrested
as well.  However, if she ran away, who would take care of the

Just when everyone was discussing vigorously, Zeng Shen came
home.  Everyone was surprised.  They asked Zeng, "Weren't you
arrested because you killed someone?  How could you come
home?  Was it because you killed a bad guy so you didn't have to
pay your life for it?"

Zeng Shen laughed and said, "How could I kill anyone?  I wouldn't
be able to come home so soon if I had killed one.  The murderer
happened to have the same name as mine."

When lies are repeated three times, people think they are true. 
Sometimes when lies are repeated thousands of times, they may even
become the truth.  This is what ancient Chinese people call "all
people saying the same thing can melt gold.  The damage can build
to the point of dissolving bones."  When the evil Chinese
Communist Party persecutes Falun Gong, it uses this tactic.  It
kept slandering Falun Gong day after day and infusing its hate
propaganda into the Chinese people.  It demonizes the Dafa
Disciples who cultivate kindness and aim at spreading the Great Buddha
Law to achieve its goal of harming sentient beings.  

The ancient Chinese people emphasized careful remarks and
behavior.  As for everything we say, we should consider whether it
is a fact.  We cannot make random remarks and pass erring comments
casually.  Otherwise we will only harm ourselves in the end.

To know the truth of the persecution of Falun Gong, one should not
listen to the Chinese communist party propaganda.  Find a Zhuan Falun yourself and read it.  You will see the true Falun Gong.
