About 9 a.m. on the morning of December 20, 2001, two practitioners and I went to Tiananmen Square to validate the Fa. When we came close to the Jinshui Bridge, I held a banner with the words "Falun Dafa is good" high over my head while shouting, "Falun Dafa is good. Falun Dafa is a righteous way. Return innocence to our Teacher. Return innocence to Falun Dafa!" In a short while, several policemen rushed up, beat and kicked me, and dragged me into a police car. I held a thought that a police car is not where I should be and was able to jump out of the car. I tried to run away, but the police caught me again within a few steps. They beat me up. I wasn't able to evade their blows, but I didn't feel any pain. Three policemen lifted me up and forced me into the car. They threw me on the floor, twisted my head, and pushed it into the floor. I struggled to stand up and make my way out of the car. One officer grabbed my hair and slapped my face several times. He also used his right index finger to viciously stick it into my right eye. His finger stuck in my eye socket but I didn't feel any pain. He, however, felt shocked and quickly took back his hand. I smiled to him and said, "I came to Beijing to save you. You will be saved if you believe Falun Dafa is good. Please remember that!"

I was taken to the Tiananmen branch of the Beijing Police Department. The police there asked me my name and address. I kept silent. They wanted to take a photo but I didn't cooperate. The policemen got angry so two of them held me and dragged me up by my hair to forcibly take the photo. I just shut my eyes so their efforts would be in vain.

In the evening, I was sent to the Mentougou Branch of the Beijing Police Department. After a body inspection, I was sent to the Dayu Police Substation where several officers illegally interrogated me. At first, I didn't answer any of their questions, but I couldn't help myself from shedding tears whenever I saw them. I felt that they were so pitiful that I started telling them the truth about Falun Dafa. I told them the changes I experienced in both my health and my mind after practicing Falun Dafa. I told them that there are practitioners in more than 50 countries all over the world. I also told them that Dafa practitioners are good people and that the central TV station broadcasts are all lies. I told them that everyone has to place him or herself right because good will be rewarded with good and evil met with evil. After that, my interrogators went out to eat. At this moment, however, I was deceived by one who said that I would be sent to the train station if I told them my name. They then found out my address from the computer system and sent me to my city's Liaison Office in Beijing. The officer who deceived me felt embarrassed, but I said to him politely, "Please remember: you will be saved if you believe Falun Dafa is good."

On the train back to my city, I clarified the truth of Falun Dafa to passengers around me even though I was handcuffed. They all looked at me. I felt I was the happiest one in the world while those who were against Dafa were the most pitiful. I started a hunger strike as soon as I entered the detention center to protest my illegal detention. On the fifth day of my hunger strike, a doctor in the detention center came to give me an intravenous drip. They had four prisoners hold me, but I sent forth righteous thoughts so that the doctor was unsuccessful even though he tried several times. Then they started to force feed me. It felt horrible when the gastric tube was inserted into my nose. I sent forth righteous thoughts, and the gastric tube turned a semi-circle and came out of my mouth. Several of us hunger-striking Dafa practitioners often sat in the full lotus position with an upright palm to send forth righteous thoughts. More than a dozen prisoners were instructed to beat us, but we didn't feel any pain. Some of the prisoners, however, would writhe on their beds from stomachaches, some would hold their heads and cry because of headaches, and others would feel heartaches due to anger. Aren't these examples of immediate retribution? I felt they were so pitiful I started sobbing. The criminals asked me why I was crying, so I told them the truth about Falun Dafa. One prisoner asked me, "Tomorrow morning, when roll is called, and the head and the guards are all there, will you dare to practice your exercises?"

The words of the prisoner reminded us. The second morning, when the roll was called, we were all prepared. We first sent forth righteous thoughts to clear our own domains, then we saw the head and about a dozen guards approaching us. Right away we all held our palms upright and recited the verse to send forth righteous thoughts. At that moment, my mind was entirely empty except one thought: eliminate the evil force and save the sentient beings. Afterwards, the guards cuffed our hands behind our backs to prevent us from sending forth righteous thoughts. I squatted down and took my hand back to my chest with ease and kept sending forth righteous thoughts.

One night, when I sat on the bed in full lotus position with an upright palm to send forth righteous thoughts, I held a thought that I wouldn't be afraid if someone would beat me. After a short while, I felt as if I was sitting in the air and could not hear any noises. After more than a dozen minutes, the guard who was on duty pulled me but I didn't pay attention to that and kept sending forth righteous thoughts. Tears covered my face as I thought of how pitiful he was.

In the detention center, I didn't obey any arrangements of the evil forces. After two months, I walked out the detention center with dignity and again joined the magnificent stream of Fa rectification.
