Inmates and Officials Abandon Their Poor Conduct and Behave Extraordinarily Well
(Minghui.org) I was illegally detained in 2015 for filing a criminal complaint against Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), for directing the persecution of Falun Gong. The complaints were sent to the Supreme People's Court and Supreme People's Procuratorate.
During my time in the detention center, I crossed paths with criminals, drug addicts, a doctor, and officials, all of whom radically improved their behavior after learning about Falun Dafa.
Two criminals decided to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations after I helped them understand the CCP's role in persecuting Falun Dafa. They shouted, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” and were released from the detention center the next day. Those present attributed this turn of events to their righteous attitude towards Dafa.
Inmates Steal My Food
Food was provided only once per day in the detention center, and it consisted of a corn bun and white radish soup with mud in the bottom of the bowl. There wasn't nearly enough to eat unless one's family could send in food for them.
My family once sent in a few pears for me, but two young female drug addicts stole them. Others tried to stop them, but I stepped in, saying, “Let them eat! There's nothing else to eat here. They're starving.”
Before this incident, these two addicts weren't willing to listen to anything I had to say. However, after I let them have the pears, they agreed to quit the CCP and even memorized the poems in Hong Yin with me. They also meditated with me, said they would no longer swear at others, and apologized for their past behavior. It was not long before they were released from the detention center.
The first thing they did after their release was to buy me a smoked chicken. I was moved by their kind act.
Others See My Kindness
An elderly woman and her daughter sought help from officials when their land was seized without compensation. Instead of receiving assistance, however, she was beaten and detained.
Her family couldn't afford to send her food or daily necessities, so I shared my food with her and others. Some young drug addicts noticed my actions, came to understand the importance of kindness, and gave the elderly woman money to buy food, which we all shared.
Municipal Commissioner Visits Me
I went on a hunger strike at one point to protest my persecution, causing a municipal commissioner to come and meet with me.
This elderly woman asked how she could assist me. I asked her to recite sincerely, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She crossed her legs in the full lotus position and recited the words for about half an hour.
I couldn't imagine how much she must have suffered, sitting for the first time in such a position, but she persisted in order to help me.
Hospital Staff Show Kindness
My blood pressure became quite low as a result of my hunger strike, so guards took me to the prison doctor for an injection.
I told the doctor about the beauty and goodness of Dafa and said that he would have good fortune if he could respect Falun Dafa and treat practitioners with kindness. He understood and didn't want to give me the injection, but the guards insisted. The doctor became angry and refused to obey them. He told them to get lost.
The associate director of the hospital was furious and decided he would forcibly hydrate me. I sent forth a righteous thought: “Don't let him create karma for himself.” The director immediately threw the bottle of water on the ground and left.
He returned a few minutes later and apologized to me. I told him that I knew he was kind and that he would have good fortune. He smiled.
I really believe that people can change when they are treated with kindness. I think the inmates’ lives improved because they came to understand the value of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”
