(Minghui.org) By keeping Master’s Fa in my mind at all times, I was able to utilize some of my supernormal abilities to counter the persecution. Fellow practitioners and I also created an environment which allowed us to study and recite the Fa every day in the forced labor camp. Our righteous actions and kindness helped the inmates and guards see the beauty of Dafa, and as a result, many of them withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and stopped participating in the persecution.


Master said, “Cultivation  is  hard. It’s hard in that even when a terrible calamity strikes, even when evil madly persecutes, and even when your life is at stake, you still have to be able to steadfastly continue on your path of cultivation without letting anything in human society interfere with the steps you take on your path of cultivation.” (“Path” in Essentials for Further Advancement II)

Master’s lectures often appeared in my mind and kept me focused on the Fa, to help save sentient beings.

When I was illegally detained, I was forced to sit on a stool for seventeen hours a day and allowed only three hours of sleep. I was deprived of water and use of a restroom. The guards force-fed me with unknown drugs and continually played DVDs that slandered Falun Gong. I told myself that although I was inside this black den, I had a very good opportunity to eliminate the evil forces close up. So I extended the time to send forth righteous thoughts and constantly recited the Fa; I freed myself of any human thoughts and kept myself in the state of a divine being.

Master also helped to open up some of my supernormal abilities, which helped me to reverse the effect of the torture back onto the perpetrators. For example, I could tell what the evildoing guards were plotting by looking at their facial expressions. My strong and constant righteous thoughts spoiled all the evil forces’ schemes. I could also make the guards fall asleep for as long as two hours. When they attempted to force-feed me with drugs, I made the drug spray back onto the guards themselves. Even though I was tortured, I did not feel any pain. To the contrary, I was very energetic and knew that Master must have endured a lot for me.

Melting into the Fa

After several fellow practitioners and I were transferred to another labor camp, we were subjected to physical tortures that included being shocked with electric batons. The guards attempted to force us to perform extremely intensive labor. Collectively, we clarified the facts to the guards and later created an environment where we could study the Fa every day.

A number of practitioners were incarcerated in this labor camp, but we only brought in a small supply of Master’s lectures. So I memorized all the lectures that I could get a hold of. Memorizing the Fa helped me to better assimilate to the Fa, so I did not go astray. Soon afterward, other practitioners joined our efforts.

Master has taught us how to send forth righteous thoughts. Every day, I woke up at the hour to send forth righteous thoughts. And to be able to find time to recite the Fa, I asked Master to wake me up at 3:00 in the morning. To help us tell time, Master arranged for someone to bring in a watch for me. We were then able to wake each other up at the hour to send forth righteous thoughts.

Although I woke up at 3:00 a.m. almost every day, I did not feel tired, regardless of how hard the physical labor was. I focused on reciting the Fa to the point that no other thoughts could come into my mind.

After we received a copy of Zhuan Falun , we began to memorize the book. And with our minds assimilated to the Fa, our xinxing was elevated and those practitioners who were once transformed by the evil forces all wrote solemn declarations to void the three statements that they had written under coercion.

Sentient Beings Are Saved

After reading “Melt into the Fa” again, I enlightened that if I cultivated well, my environment would be cleared up. Although I was incarcerated, I was filled with happiness and determined to help save those inmates and guards.

At first, the inmates did not understand why we recited the Fa every day, but later they changed their attitudes and even withdrew from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Some of them also helped their families quit the CCP and others said that they would begin practicing Falun Dafa after they went back home. The practitioners extended compassion toward everyone, so we earned their respect and they could tell that we were different from other people.

The old forces arranged for the criminals and guards to persecute us and, thus, destroy themselves in the process. Master's arrangements, however, involved them coming to us to be saved.

We clarified the facts to the guards whenever we could. And after learning the truth about Dafa, some of them regained their conscience and stopped physically torturing practitioners; some also completely accepted that Dafa was good and agreed that the CCP was wrong to persecute Falun Gong. Some guards recited “Falun Dafa is good” to themselves when they were sick, while others not only withdrew from the CCP, but also helped their families do the same.

Master uses every opportunity possible for me to improve, and I know I can pass a test if I remember that I am a Dafa disciple.

Master is with me everywhere!
