“Learning Falun Dafa in Jail” and Another Short Story
Learning Falun Dafa in Jail
I was imprisoned for selling fake invoices in 2001. There were several Falun Dafa practitioners in my cell who told me that practicing Dafa helps people change their ways and helps them to become better people. They explained that by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, one could return to good health.
One of the practitioners, a former government official, said that once she began to live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, she returned the gifts and money (bribes) that people had given her.
I thought Falun Dafa was great, since the teachings of Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, had produced such a good person. I decided to become a person with good morals and a clear conscience, and told her that I wanted to learn Falun Dafa.
I was transferred to three different cells, and met Dafa disciples in each cell. The practitioners in my cell taught me Hong Yin, a collection of Master Li's poems, and other Fa teachings. Soon, I had memorized and could recite many of the teachings.
When I was released several months later, I was able to receive a copy of the book Zhuan Falun, which contains the teachings and principles of Falun Dafa, and I began to study it well.
I had come to understand that Falun Dafa is good, and that it teaches people to be good. I wanted to tell others how beautiful and great Falun Dafa is, so helped to publicly distribute materials about the practice.
When clarifying the truth I was arrested and imprisoned for a year. I was tortured and became disabled. After returning home, I recited the Fa teachings I had initially learned from practitioners because my Falun Dafa books were confiscated when I was arrested. I did the exercises every day. Soon my health returned.
Rewarded for Reciting “Falun Dafa Is Good”
(Report from Sichuan Province, China) A 95-year-old woman makes her living by picking trash. She listened to the Dafa truth. I told her to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and she would benefit.
She fell down the stairs twice, and each time she shouted “Falun Dafa is good.” She was not injured.
One day, her rice cooker stopped working, so she took it to a repair shop. However, the shop was closed. I happened to stop by at her place. I plugged in the rice cooker, and found that it was working. I asked her, “Aunty, was the rice cooker repaired?” She said: “No. I begged Master Li for help. Master helped me.”
She recites, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day. She is healthy and can do lots of physical work and take care of herself. She is very grateful to Dafa and its founder, Master Li Hongzhi.
