Police Have No Tricks to Play When Dafa Practitioners Keep Constant Righteous Thoughts
Master said, "An article published on the Minghui website described a student who told people the facts about Dafa and shouted 'Dafa is good' wherever she went. 'No matter where they take me, I'll ignore everything the vicious policemen say, and no matter how violently you beat me or how terribly you swear at me, I'll remain just as I am.' The labor camp was so scared that they sent her back in a hurry--'We don't want her.' It's because they figured, 'We won't be able to convert her, and on top of that she'll influence a large number of people.' (People laugh) And they won't be able to get a bonus, either. (Applause) They had no way to handle it--where could the local police station put her? They had no way to handle it, so they sent her home." (Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference)
Recently, I experienced something which made me truly realize that Dafa can strengthen one's righteous thoughts, and I realized how serious Dafa is. I once again felt the mightiness of Dafa on the path of cultivation. I deeply understood an intricate meaning of the above segment of the Fa. As long as we do things according to Dafa's requirements, we will be able to reject the old forces' arrangements and be able to break through each difficult situation.
It was on July 27, 2003. At that time I was not diligent in my Fa study. I still had many attachments, there was much interference with my mind, plus I had the feeling of regret about the arrests of other practitioners. Due to all of these gaps, the evil easily took advantage of me. On the afternoon of that same day, more than a dozen police officers from the local town police station and county police department broke into and searched Dafa practitioner's homes, and arrested four Dafa practitioners. Three of them got away with the help of their righteous thoughts, but one was taken into custody. The following incidents took place at that time.
With Righteous Thoughts in My Mind, the Police Could Not Carry Me Away
When more than a dozen police officers arrived at my home, my wife and I immediately started to clarify the facts to them. They did not bother to listen so I thought I should confront the evil and handle the situation with righteous thoughts. I then adjusted my mind, calmed down, and switched from passive to active, thinking nobody could move me under my righteous thoughts. My mind became tranquil and did not think of any thing. I felt those police officers become smaller and smaller. They wanted to take my wife and me away. I said that I would not go with them because I did not commit a crime. The police said that I did not have a choice. Four people started to drag me, but could not make me move. They then prepared to carry me out. I shouted, "I did not violate the law. I am not wrong. You are committing a crime while you are supposed to be the law enforcement. The constitution permits freedom of belief. I am not guilty!" But they insisted on carrying me out. I sent forth righteous thoughts and asked Master to strengthen me with divine powers and not allow them to move me. The four policemen indeed could not take me away and they put me down and moved back.
Then the head of the "610 Office"* shouted loudly, "Why did you stop carrying him? Send in a few more people." I once again sent forth righteous thoughts thinking that no matter how many more people there were, they would not be able to move me. Six or seven police officers got very tired and their faces were covered with sweat. Finally, still exhausted, they somehow pulled me to the car and tried to load me into the back. A group of police officers carried me to the door and tried to push me in. I continuously sent forth righteous thoughts thinking I would not enter the car and I would not let the evil succeed. Suddenly I felt a shock on my head and there was a strange sound coming from my mouth. It sounded as if I was vomiting. I fell down from the car but did not feel any pain. I repeatedly sent forth righteous thoughts while lying down on the ground. Seeing what just happened there, the police became afraid and did not take any further action. By now the residents of my village came over, saying that after my wife and I learned Dafa, we indeed became better people. People commented on this matter, which effectively suppressed the evil.
Under Master's merciful protection, my righteous thoughts were powerful and I made it through.
Shouting "Dafa is Good" Along The Way
On that day the police also carried my wife into the car. By that time there were a lot of people present at the scene. The following is my wife's experience:
It was just like what Master said in Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference, "Now that you've arrested me, I haven't thought at all about going back. Now that I've come here, I've come to validate the Fa." While I was in the car, I shouted, "Falun Dafa is great!" "Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa!" "It is not wrong for me to cultivate Zhen-Shan-Ren!" When we arrived at the police station, they were afraid to accept me there. On the way to the city, I kept on shouting, "Falun Dafa is great" whenever we came across people. Then a thought came to my mind: It would be wonderful if all everyday people could hear the truth. Then a miracle happened. After hearing the chants, people rounded up. Then the car could not move any further, and the steering wheel stopped functioning. I once again shouted, "Dafa is good, television reports are false and are deceiving people." The head of the "610 Office" got scared of the lies being exposed and tried to cover my mouth with his hand but failed in his attempt. They were really very scared.
They sent me to a detention center. Even the detention center refused to accept me. Then they sent me to a jail. I still clarified the truth to them and told them that good deeds are always rewarded while bad deeds are always punished, and told them to not persecute Dafa. I planned to shout "Dafa is great" at the gate. The "610 Office" head blocked me and slapped me on my face. I then said, "You are guilty for beating up good people. I did not violate any laws." I kept moving forward; two police officers held my arms on each side. They tried to make me stumble with their legs. I not only did not fall, but also kept rushing forward. It was like nothing could stop me. When I saw the jail's office, I shouted again, "Dafa is great!" A group of police officers came out and threatened me with the words "Stop yelling. If you yell again, we will kill you with a bullet." They also used obscene language and beat and kicked me. I shouted again and again, "It is not wrong to practice Dafa. Falun Dafa is great. It is a terrible sin to persecute Dafa." A police officer at the door forcibly took my fingerprints, but I did not cooperate with him. Then they carried me to a cell. I shouted, "Falun Dafa is great." After hearing my voice, other practitioners who were detained in the jail and the inmates who had learnt the truth shouted altogether, "Dafa is great!"
In the jail, I refused to wear the uniform and did not reply to the head counting. The officer on duty got mad. I repeatedly sent forth righteous thoughts, and refused to eat and drink. On the third day, they tried to force-feed me. I absolutely refused to cooperate with them; they cursed and cursed at me.
"A Great Enlightened Being does not fear hardship
Having forged an adamantine will
And with no attachment to living or dying
He walks his path of Fa-rectification openly and nobly"
("Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions")
Later they tied up my arms and legs to give me a transfusion.
When the fifth night came, I sent forth righteous thoughts asking Master to strengthen me with divine powers. "I should not stay here, I want to get out to validate the Fa and save more predestined people." When the police saw my body becoming so weak, they called in the "610 Office" officials. They took a look at me and asked the police to release me immediately. A police officer said, "You won this time." I went back to the immense flow of Fa-rectification. The results of these incidents came from the mighty power of Dafa.
