( The local brainwashing class has been persecuting Dafa practitioners for a long time. I feel that this is directly related to our whole group, and to each and every practitioner who has been persecuted. Teacher said,

"Nobody can manipulate Dafa disciples who have righteous thoughts and righteous actions."

(Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference)".

A 57 year-old female practitioner and her husband stepped out of the brainwashing class in 2 hours with righteous thoughts and righteous actions.

The details are as follows: at around 5:30 PM on February 17, 2003, the building in which a female Dafa practitioner lives was surrounded by police from the local security bureau and police station, leaders from her workplace, security guards, as well as around 10 police vans. They knocked at the door but the she refused to open it and refused to reply. This stalemate lasted until 9 o'clock that night.

The police went and got the practitioner's daughter and son-in-law, who both work night shifts. Her son-in-law firmly told the people blocking her front door to go away, and then he asked the practitioner inside the house to open the door. The practitioner did not have any attachment of fear in her, and thought, "I should clarify the truth and spread the Fa". Therefore, she let the one with highest authority, as well as a head of her company, come up. She clarified the truth to them, telling them that she used to have rheumatic heart disease, bone spurs on vertebra at her waist and neck, as well as many other diseases. The medical fees for her heart disease alone was 100,000 Yuan, but after cultivating Dafa, not one cent was needed, and all the diseases disappeared.

Her husband also had had heart disease and was also cured. She asked them, "Why do you forbid people to observe such a wonderful practice? Isn't it good for citizens to have healthy bodies? I will practice to the end, and even if a gun is pointed to my head, I won't write any guarantee letter to give up practicing." The head of her company replied, "We're also left with no choice, it's the order from the top. If you won't go, we'll have a hard time reporting to the higher authorities. You should go". Under their pleas, the Dafa practitioner replied, "OK I will go, but I will not drink the water there, or eat anything, nor will I use their blankets. If I go there and it's not as you described, you must send me back after 20 minutes". They agreed on all the things the practitioner said. It was then 10 PM.

During the drive to the brainwashing class, the practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts all the way. Upon arriving in the lobby, the Dafa practitioner said, "I didn't violate any laws. If this is a "class", why do they all wear police uniforms?" This practitioner refused to sign on the name roster, and refused to go upstairs. The guards told her, "We start class at 8 o'clock. The classes teach laws". The practitioner asked, "Is the book Zhuan Falun here?" He replied, "We don't have it". The Dafa practitioner stated, "I only study Zhuan Falun. If you have this book, I will stay here tonight, and educate all of you." Afterwards, she stayed in the lobby and said to everyone, "I study Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and there is nothing wrong with that. All of my diseases have completely disappeared through practicing. If you don't believe it you can go to the hospital and look up my records. It is Master Li who saved my life, how can I betray Teacher?"

At that time there were about 30 people in the lobby, and she then told them how much she benefited from practicing Falun Dafa, and clarified the facts about the propaganda, the truth of the staged immolation, and about how much the "610 office" has persecuted Dafa practitioners. Her husband also talked about the benefits he received from practicing Falun Dafa. Everybody in the lobby listened to them, and the people who understood the truth quietly gave the Dafa practitioners thumbs-up.

The practitioner then said, "It's time to take us back home. If you do not allow us to go, we will stay in the lobby and neither eat nor drink anything, nor sleep." The Falun Dafa practitioners' righteous thoughts suffocated the evil in other dimensions. After a 30 minute telephone conference, the brainwashing class organizers had no choice but to release the practitioners. In this way, around 1 AM, the practitioners raised their heads high and returned home. (three weeks later, the practitioner's company sent people to the hospital to look up her medical records, and they confirmed that everything she said was true.)

Teacher said,

"Some people did things in an open and upright way, without fear, and so they weren't persecuted; and when they were sent to forced labor camps, the evil in other dimensions couldn't take it and had to let them out. Some people have all kinds of fears and their human thoughts are many, so they're persecuted severely." (Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference)

As long as we firmly follow Teacher and Dafa, and our actions are righteous, there is no test we can't pass.
