(Clearwisdom.net) On the night of March 29 of this year, four Dafa practitioners were reported to the police while distributing Dafa truth clarifying material. Three were arrested and the fourth was seized on June 10 at a relative's house. On July 29, three more Dafa practitioners were detained while they were clarifying the truth. While practitioners were in the detention center, they were force-fed, tortured and abused for no reason. The police goaded some criminal prisoners to assault a male practitioner whose leg became so badly swollen that he had to support himself along the wall to walk. His back had a serious injury from the torture. In such a severe environment, Dafa practitioners have not forgotten their responsibilities, spreading Dafa to the prisoners. Some have felt the turning of Falun [Law Wheel] and some of them would like to read Dafa books.

"Indestructible righteous faith in the cosmos's Truth forms benevolent Dafa disciples' rock-solid, Diamond-Like Bodies, it frightens all evil, and the light of Truth it emanates makes the unrighteous elements in all beings' thoughts disintegrate." (Essentials for Further Advancement II: Also in a Few Words). Inside the prison, Dafa practitioners firmly resisted the arrangements of the old forces. While trying to take the fingerprints of a female practitioner, six policemen could not open her hand. Seven Dafa practitioners rejected the persecution by going on a hunger strike and clarified the truth of Dafa to the head of the "610 Office" [a bureau specifically created by the Chinese government to persecute Falun Gong. It has absolute power over each level of administration in the Party, as well as over the political and judiciary branches]. Everything on this earth exists for Dafa. When something is done in the most righteous way, the persecution will automatically dissolve. A female practitioner was unconditionally released after being detained for over ten days.

The Dafa practitioner who was released from prison has not forgotten her fellow practitioners. On August 19, together with another Dafa practitioner, the two ladies, who are over sixty years old, took some clothes with them and went to the "610 Office." The practitioners asked her, "Why do you return?" "I came to take you home!" A simple answer has pointed out the wish of all sentient beings. With this answer, no tribulation can stop us. The practitioners inside the prison rejected the persecution with a hunger strike and at the same time sent out righteous thoughts to clear up the evil factors in other dimensions. Two female Dafa practitioners continued to clarify the truth to the policemen of the "610 Office." Other practitioners continuously sent forth righteous thoughts toward the direction of the "610 Office." Six out of the seven practitioners who were illegally detained there were unconditionally released on August 21.

After three years of Fa-rectification, people are waking up and the evil is also in the last stages of elimination. No wonder the Public Security Bureau director said, "Dafa practitioners are the most difficult to deal with, neither softness or harshness can move them. If you give them hardship, they are firmer than ever. If you want to move them with softness, they tell to you the truth of Falun Gong."
