A Heart of Compassion Moves Police
(Minghui.org) The police talked me into going to a brainwashing center on the outskirts of our city in March 2000.
The head of the police department ordered, “The brainwashing center must be managed the same way as a prison.” A detention center director was appointed. Every room was monitored by a person who had to stop Falun Gong practitioners from studying the Fa and doing the exercises.
I practiced the exercises at noon one day. The officers were so angry that they handcuffed me and hung me up on a door frame. With the tip of my feet touching the ground, a female officer deliberately pushed the door open and then closed it to increase my suffering. It made my wrists extremely painful. However, I smiled at her as I watched her doing these things to me. I even tried to move my body to let her go out or enter.
The officer later brought some bricks and placed them under my feet. She took off my high-heel shoes so that my feet could stand on the bricks.
As a Falun Gong practitioner, I should be kind to all sentient beings in any environment. With compassion cultivated from the Fa, I not only moved the police but also created a relatively relaxed environment for myself.
“How Did the Handcuffs End Up in Front?”
The police took me to an empty room one day and then handcuffed me. They tortured me by handcuffing me with many methods, one of which was called “Carrying a sword on his back.” That is, one hand is down with the other hand over one's shoulder down the back, and then the two hands are handcuffed together behind one’s back.
When this torture method was used, I was in such a great pain that I hit my head on the wall. Even so, the officers deliberately raised the handcuffs, which made me feel even more pain. With tears running down my cheeks because of the pain, I recited Master’s articles in my heart.
An officer came in a moment later and raised the handcuffs a bit more, which should have almost killed me with pain. But instead the arms suddenly came over my head to the front of my body. I felt relaxed at once. The officer was shocked and said, “How did the handcuffs end up in the front?” Baffled, he turned away.
Despite being locked in a brainwashing center, determined Falun Gong practitioners still do the exercises every day. Practitioners in my room were always the earliest to get up to do the exercises and consequently the officers treated us very badly.
I was forced to wear handcuffs almost every day. This torture method was very cruel, but I did not feel much pain. When I felt pain from wearing the handcuffs for a long time, I would be able to turn them over my head to the front. Every time the officer who removed my handcuffs would ask why they were in the front.
Taking Handcuffs Off
When our state of mind is pure and meets the requirements of a practitioner Master will help us by showing us miracles. If our state of mind is not stable, the result will be different.
The police handcuffed three of us to some bed frames one morning, because we did the exercises. Practitioner Ms. Zhang said to another practitioner, Ms. Chen, “Let’s get our hands out of the handcuffs.” I said, “How can we possibly get our hands out?” They took their hands out of the handcuffs but I failed.
It is true what Master said:
“We have said that good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences.” (Zhuan Falun)
While detained, we insisted on memorizing the Fa and doing the exercises. The police used all their tricks, and in the end were at their wits end and no longer shouted at us or handcuffed us. They then locked us in the most remote room, leaving us alone so that we could study the Fa and do the exercises as we liked.
With Master’s help and protection, we finally walked out of the brainwashing center.
