June 5 Proclamation with Translation Added
Sun Myung Moon
June 5, 2010
The conversation during True Father writing the proclamation (from the transcript of the original video)
Father: Alright, do I need to write my name?
Mother: Yes, Father, (pointing at the place to sign)…just put Sun Myung Moon.
(Sound is erased for a while)
Father: True foundation, True Parents, for thousands of generations, everything on heaven and earth, the citizens for thousands of generations are of one lineage, and are the children of one heavenly kingdom. It’s all in here.
Father: Universal Peace Federation, Federation, we don’t need the Federation. Universal Peace and Unification Headquarters is the absolute and unique Headquarters. Its representative and inheritor is Hyung Jin Moon. Anybody else would be a heretic and a destroyer.
Mother: It’s the person who is a destroyer.
Father: (Chinese character: Destroy) With this character it means the person who destroys. The above content is True Parents’ proclamation. Signed, Sun Myung Moon!
Mother: Date, you need to put down the date.
Father: What about the date?
Father: It should say this is announced in 2010, 2010.
Mother: It is two-thousand and ten, ten. Two-thousand and ten… no, not two-thousand, it’s two-thousand and ten. “Ten,” you are forgetting to put the “ten.” It would have been better to write it horizontally. (Running out of space to write)
Father: What month is it?
Mother: It is 2010, in the Heavenly Calendar, 4th month, 23rd day (together with Hyung Jin Nim). It would be good to put 4 and 23. Yes, 4th month, 23… 23rd day… 4th month, 23rd day.
Father: Is today the 23rd?
Mother, Hyung Jin Nim and Yeon Ah Nim: Yes, it is April 23rd by Heavenly Calendar.
Mother: Twenty. Twenty, Father, you left out “20”.
Hyung Jin Nim: If you just write the character for “10”…
Mother: Put a dot there. Yes…3rd day.
Father: This is fine. It doesn’t have to be any bigger.
Mother: Is it OK to put this whole thing out (on the internet)?
Hyung Jin Nim: Because… this sort of has a strong wording…
Mother: This is kind of strong…
Mother: Does this go up on the internet?
Father: Can go up.
Mother: Also, (pointing at Hyung Jin Nim) will you also not write that we should only obey President of the World Mission Headquarters? Isn’t it what you wanted? Do you not want to write, that all mission countries, all Unification people should only acknowledge the direction of the official memos from the World Mission Headquarters? Even if we put that on the internet, there is no problem. If the members know this, then they won’t follow Hyun Jin. This one (the one with the entire contents written on the full sheet) we can keep.
Father: What do you mean, keep? You just follow everything. It contains everything.
Mother: Yes, I know everything is in there, but…
Father: (Reading what he wrote) Here, here, here, there’s nothing more to say. There is only one King of Kings, who is God, only one True Parents, throughout tens of thousands of generations, all families are the people who share a single lineage, and are the children of one heavenly kingdom. They have the same blood lineage. The Universal Peace and Unification Federation Headquarters is the absolute and unique Headquarters. There cannot be two Headquarters.
Universal Peace and Unification, there is no Federation…just say Unification. Unification Headquarters is also the absolute and unique Headquarters. Its representative and inheritor is Hyung Jin Moon. Anybody else is a heretic and a destroyer. This is the proclamation of the True Parents. Signed, Sun Myung Moon. April 23, 2010.
Mother: (Appears disappointed) Yes…
Father: Not here, but here…
Mother: Do you want to write it here? Please prop up the World Mission Headquarters…
Mother: I’m saying, please prop up the World Mission Headquarters.
Father: (Pointing at his writing) This, this is the one and only Headquarters, the absolute Headquarters.
Mother: Yes, but because they don’t know that…
Father: (Reading the paper) Here, the representative and inheritor is Hyung Jin Moon, anybody else is a heretic and a destroyer, and this content is the proclamation of the True Parents. What else do you want me to say?
Mother: Alright, I understand… (Silence)… Sigh… (Silence)… Sigh… (Silence) “Therefore, the people should only believe in the official memo issued by the World Mission Headquarters.”
Father: Why do you keep pushing this? Huh?
Mother: I am just saying, it should be explained like that. I think that phrase is very important. I understand you fully but… (Silence)… But, because they don’t acknowledge the Mission Headquarters, I am just saying that you should prop up its name.
Father: Acknowledge what? (Pointing at the words he wrote) Here, it says Hyung Jin’s Headquarters, it’s all Hyung Jin Moon everywhere… (Laughs)
Mother: Yes, but the reality is…oh, geez…
Father: What are you saying? Your name, do it in your name. (Handing the paper to Mother)
Mother: No, not me, it should be from one source, from your name. It should come out in your name.
Father: So, so what is it that you want me to write?
Mother: I am saying, “Only follow the official memos from the World Mission Headquarters,” that’s what I am saying. So, it should say, “Only the official memos issued by the World Mission Headquarters are legitimate,” Signed, Sun Myung Moon, that’s what I am saying.
Mother: I am not even saying prop up Hyung Jin’s name.
I am just saying, “the people should only acknowledge the official memos from the World Mission Headquarters,” coming from your name.
That’s all. Please just write it like that, one simple phrase.
(Talking to Hyung Jin Nim)
You should sufficiently teach this, you should educate the members with this.
I understand about education, but please just write one simple phrase to put up on the internet.
Father: (Looking at the other side of the paper) Here, behind this here.
Mother: Yes, you can do that. Please write it on the back.
Father: What do I write?
Mother: World Mission Headquarters.
Father: What mission?
Mother: Unification mission, Unification mission.
Father: Universal Unification Church, Universal Unification Church…
Mother: World Mission Headquarters…
Father: Universal Unification Church Headquarters…
Mother: But you have to put World Headquarters in parenthesis. It is because the current name is set up that way.
Hyung Jin Nim: It’s currently set up that way legally…
Mother: It’s because, Hyun Jin ignores this legal name.
Hyung Jin Nim: Yes.
Mother: That’s why, I am saying you should make it clear.
Father: What are you saying? You write it. You should just write it yourself.
Mother: From the World Mission Headquarters…
Father: What World Mission Headquarters?
Father: Universal Federation…
Mother: If you want to write Universal Federation, then you should say, Accept only the official memos from the Universal Federation, parenthesis, Unificationism, World Mission Headquarters.
That’s what I am saying. I understand the name you want to use, but the name that is legally accepted is…
Father: That boy should believe in this here, I didn’t write Hyun Jin’s name here.
Mother: I know, I fully understand.
Father: I don’t want to put anybody’s name here.
Mother: I understand. But we can’t have it where some ignorant members say that the official memos from the Mission Headquarters are a fake.
(To Hyung Jin Nim)
Isn’t that right? Is the name, Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity World Mission Headquarters?
Hyung Jin Nim: Yes.
(Speaking to Father who is writing)
It is good enough to just put Unificationism World Headquarters.
Father: Special Announcement…
Mother: Please write it here in one line.
Hyung Jin Nim: World Mission Headquarters, yes!
(Writing “Universal Unification”)
Hyung Jin Nim: Unificationism!
Mother: Universal Unification World Headquarters.
Hyung Jin Nim: Unificationism World Headquarters, yes.
Mother: Universal Unification World Headquarters, then parenthesis Unificationism Mission Headquarters, Unificationism…
Hyung Jin Nim: Unificationism!
Father: Universal Unification…
Hyung Jin Nim: Unificationism!
Mother: I think you should put Unificationism in parenthesis after Universal Unification.
Father: Universal Unification Federation… Federation.
Mother: You want to write it as Unification Federation?
Hyung Jin Nim: Then people will think it is UPF (Universal Peace Federation). So, if you could just write Unificationism….
Mother: It would be good if you put a parenthesis and then write Unificationism.
Hyung Jin Nim: Otherwise, they will think this is UPF.
Mother: Since Father gave so many names, we are just saying it would be good for you to distinguish it.
Father: Universal Unificationism…
Mother and Hyung Jin Nim: World Mission Headquarters.
Mother: Or you could put World Mission Headquarters in parenthesis…
Mother: (Father writing second line) World Mission Headquarters.
Father: Unificationism World Mission Headquarters?
Mother and Hyung Jin Nim: Yes, yes
Mother: Unificationism World Headquarters.
Hyung Jin Nim: Yes, Mission Headquarters.
Mother: Please say that, Only the official memo issued from the World Mission Headquarters is valid… that the True Parents only accept the public memos from the World Mission Headquarters. It should be an official direction, you see. Or say that the True Parents only accept Headquarters’ public memo. Write Father’s name and that you accept…only official memo…
(Still writing the last part)
Mother: Do you want to write it as signed by True Parents? Or do you want to just put Father’s name? Since it’s important to show that Father accepts this, it’s OK if you just write your name… (Sigh)

English Translation (Summary)
True Father: Shall I sign this as well?
True Mother: Yes, dear…You can just write ‘Moon Sun Myung.’
True Father: [Father reviews what he has written] Here we have the Korean character that means true. True Parents… People for tens of thousands of generations — this means all the people in this world, as well as in heaven and on earth — are citizens of one lineage, and sons and daughters of one Kingdom of Heaven. This includes everyone.
True Mother: Yes.
[Father thinks that the first six Chinese characters read “Cosmic (Universal) Peace Federation”]
Subjects of the Universal Peace Federation…
[Father realizes that the Chinese characters for “Federation” are not included and there are only the characters for “Cosmic Peace”]
No problem arises by us not including the word “Federation.”
[Father starts reading the same line again]
The headquarters to bring about peaceful unification of the cosmos is absolute and unique. Its representative and heir is Hyung Jin Moon. Anybody else [who claims such authority] would be a heretic and a…
[Father struggles to decipher the Chinese character he wrote — he had basically created a new word by adding two Chinese characters that had not been associated together before]
[Mother helps Father remember how to read the characters]
[At around the same time, Father remembers the characters he had chosen to use]
[Father then explains the meaning of the word he had created while writing out the first Chinese character in the air]
It means a person who eliminates [something or someone] by blowing it up.
[Father continues to read the proclamation]
This is True Parents’ proclamation. Signed, Sun Myung Moon.
[Father hands the proclamation to Mother after confirming that it is complete.]
True Mother: You meant to include today’s date, right?
True Father: Did I forget to include the date?
[True Parents add the date to the proclamation.]
True Father: This is good enough. We don’t need to make the proclamation any stronger.
True Mother: Is it OK for all this content to go out?
Hyung Jin Nim: (Mother is asking because) The wording is a bit strong.
True Mother: This is a bit too strong.
True Father: Why do you say that?
True Mother: Should we upload this to the Internet?
True Father: Yes.
True Mother: How about writing one telling people to only listen to the International President? Isn’t that what you wanted to say to everyone? (We talked about) writing a (notice) that you sign, which says, “Unification Church members must only recognize orders from the World Mission Department.” Have you changed your mind about it? If we upload that on the Internet, it will be flawless. Once members understand (that is your desire), they will not listen to Hyun Jin. [Indicating the proclamation already written,] I will hold onto this one [meaning that it would not be publicly proclaimed and Mother would keep it].
True Father: What do you mean, “hold onto” it? This has to be proclaimed! Who says to hold onto it? I’m telling you to proclaim this [indicating what he had already written]. I’m telling you to proclaim it. If you proclaim it, then…
[Father stops mid-sentence, looks away, then looks over the first proclamation again.]
[Indicating the first proclamation]
Everything is included here. There is no room for argument.
[Father reads the proclamation over again while explaining the same points that he explained earlier.]
I can write the second proclamation (on the back of the first one).
True Mother: Please establish the authority of the World Mission Headquarters.
True Father: That’s what I did in (the first proclamation). I wrote that it is the absolute and unique headquarters.
True Mother: Yes, but members don’t know that “the headquarters to bring about peaceful unification of the cosmos” is the World Mission Headquarters.
True Father: [Indicating words on the first proclamation] The representative and heir is Hyung Jin Moon. Anyone else [who claims such authority] would be a heretic and destroyer. This is True Parents’ proclamation.
[Father hands back the first proclamation.]
True Mother: “Therefore, citizens of Cheon Il Guk should trust only the official notices from the World Mission Headquarters.” I think it’s important to include this sentence, even though the first proclamation does make everything clear enough. The reason I say this is that (some people) do not recognize the World Mission Headquarters. So please establish the authority of the World Mission Headquarters.
True Father: What is more important than following the World Mission Headquarters is to follow Hyung Jin Moon.
True Mother: Yes, but the problem is the current state of the movement… (I wish things weren’t the way they are now.)
True Father: What is it that needs to be written? Why don’t you write the second proclamation? It can be your proclamation.
True Mother: I’m sorry but it needs to go out in your name.
True Father: Please tell me again what needs to be written.
True Mother: “Only trust the memos from the World Mission Headquarters.” This is all that needs to be said. In other words, it would be a reduction of the first proclamation, saying, “Only memos from the World Mission Headquarters are valid. Signed, Sun Myung Moon.” That is what I am suggesting. The focus doesn’t need to be on establishing Hyung Jin’s authority. It can just be to establish the authority of the World Mission Headquarters in your name. Please write a simple proclamation in this way. [Addressing Hyung Jin Nim,] You need to educate the members about this (first proclamation) so they understand it. [Speaking to Father,] I understand (the intent and purpose of) the first proclamation, but for what will go on the Internet, please write a short one-line proclamation.
True Father: I want to write it on the back of the first proclamation.
True Mother: Yes, that is fine. Please write on the back (of the first proclamation).
True Father: Can you tell me again what to write?
True Mother: [Mother starts repeating the sentence she had requested from Father] World Mission Headquarters…
True Father: What kind of mission work does it do?
True Mother: It promotes the Unification Church.
[Father starts to formulate the second proclamation in his mind and with his hands first]
The church that will unify the cosmos… The church that will unify the cosmos…
True Mother: [Reminding Father about the actual title of the organization,] The World Mission Headquarters…
True Father: The headquarters of the church that will unify the cosmos…
True Mother: We have to include the words “World Mission Headquarters,” in parenthesis (if necessary). The reason is that “World Mission Headquarters” is the current legal name of the organization which Hyun Jin ignores.
[Mother and Father go back and forth, discussing what name should go on the proclamation.]
[Father has begun writing the second proclamation. He reads the first four characters that he has written]
True Mother: It can just be one line long.
[Father has written the Chinese characters for “cosmos” and “unification.” True Mother and Hyung Jin Nim remind Father that the proclamation should be about the World Mission Headquarters of the Unification Church. Father adds the character for “church”]
True Father: The church to unify the cosmos…
[True Mother and Hyung Jin Nim ask Father to add the words “World Mission Headquarters.” Father begins the second line with the characters for “world,” “unification,” and “church.” Then Father draws two lines from the first and second lines and writes the characters for “mission” and “headquarters.” After adding the Korean character meaning “of,” True Parents discuss the best way to complete the proclamation. Father adds the Chinese characters for “official notice,” then deeply considers what the right word is to use next, while Mother suggests that the proclamation could either be in True Parents’ name or just in Father’s name. Finally, Father starts to write the last portion of the proclamation and the video ends.]
