Helping Inmates Quit the Chinese Communist Party
(Minghui.org) I would like to share my experience of when I was illegally imprisoned.
I had a dream in November 2014, in which several people and I were looking down a metal staircase. I heard a male voice asking, “Three people are at the bottom. Who wants to go get them?” Everybody looked at each other. I replied, “Let me go!” My alarm went off right at that moment.
Not long after the dream, I was arrested with other Falun Dafa practitioners on November 26, while attending a Fa-study group.
We were taken to a detention center, but another practitioner and I were refused admittance after failing the physical examination.
We were taken to Ankang Hospital before being imprisoned. They tried to draw blood from both of my arms, but without success. The nurse couldn't understand why.
I was asking Master for help at the time and had the thought, “I will leave the same way that I came.” I told them to stop trying to take my blood, because I had no illnesses.
Saving People While Imprisoned
The guards treated Dafa practitioners coldly in the prison, so I treated them the same way. Master's words then came to my mind: “Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in spring...” (“The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos” in Hong Yin Vol. II)
I knew that Master was trying to help me understand that the guards are also sentient beings we should save. I changed my attitude towards them and treated them politely. I also began to talk to them about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
I told them not to persecute practitioners so that they would avoid accruing karma and stay safe when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is eliminated. One reply was, “We know. We didn't persecute you. When you do the [Falun Dafa] exercises, we don't say anything, either. We also didn't force you to take medication.”
I tried to talk to the inmates in the same ward about Dafa and the persecution, but they laughed and tried to avoid me because they had been misled by the Communist Party's propaganda.
I was not deterred, held myself to the principals of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and always treated them with respect.
They eventually stopped avoiding me, as I told them about the persecution and the self-immolation hoax on Tiananmen Square in 2001. However, they still didn't understand why practitioners continue to practice while being persecuted.
I said, “Falun Dafa is Buddha Fa cultivation. We do this to save people. Due to the Party's corruption, people have lost their jobs, their land, and are left with no means to make ends meet. If you had a proper job, would you still be dealing drugs? Would you cheat or harm others?”
I continued to tell them about the CCP's crimes and the karmic retribution it faces as a result, and that wthdrawing from the Party will ensure one a bright future.
Three of the inmates immediately raised their hands to express their agreement and desire to quit the Party. I also taught them how to sing “Be Saved” before I was released.
On the morning of the 13th day after I was arrested, two beautiful birds stopped at the window of my cell and started singing. I went over to look at them before they flew away.
One inmate said, “I have never seen such beautiful birds sing so well. Did they pass on some good news? Is someone going to return home?” I told her that I was going home, but she didn't believe me.
After dinner that evening, a guard called my name and that of another practitioner. We were told to collect our personal belongings to go home.
As I was leaving, some inmates hugged me goodbye.
