(Minghui.org) I am 75 years old and started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. After the Chinese communist regime launched the persecution of Falun Dafa in 1999, I never stopped my efforts to raise awareness of the persecution, and I have had several encounters with the police and detention center guards.

Because of my strong righteous thoughts and Master’s protection, most of the dangers were averted. I would like to share three stories.

Plainclothes Officer Puts On Sunglasses to Avoid Me

One evening before it got dark, I went out to post Falun Dafa fliers. Before I could put one on a utility pole, a plainclothes officer tried to take the flier from my hand. I was not afraid and quickly put it back into my pocket. Probably because of my righteous thoughts, the man held back and warned me not to put up fliers before he walked away.

I followed him, intending to explain why I wanted to post fliers. Because the regime has blocked legal channels for us to appeal for Falun Dafa, practitioners like me have been using creative ways, including posting fliers, to expose the persecution of Falun Dafa. 

The man probably realized that I was following him and put on sunglasses, even though it was already completely dark outside. My guess was that he didn’t want me to identify him and submit his picture to the Minghui website for everyone to see. 

This incident helped me gain a better understanding of what Master Li said,

“If thoughts are righteous,evil will collapse”(“What’s to Fear?” Hong Yin Volume II, Translation version A)

Standing Up for an Imprisoned Practitioner 

Years ago I visited a practitioner who was incarcerated in Panjin Prison in Liaoning Province for refusing to give up Falun Dafa. He was emaciated from being abused in the prison.

I condemned the guard who was monitoring our visit: “Why did you hang this man up-side-down for so long. His head is terribly swollen. This is brutal.” 

The guard blamed the practitioner for refusing to do unpaid labor as instructed.

I retorted, “That’s not true. You tortured him because he wouldn’t give up Falun Dafa. What happened to your conscience? What would happen if you or other guards were hung up-side-down? You would have understood the practitioner's suffering!”

The guard didn't say anything in response. Two other guards who came to the visitors' room heard me but also said nothing. I left the prison safely after the visit.

Police Walk Me Out with a Smile

I was once at a bus terminal telling the passengers about Falun Dafa. Two officers stationed at the terminal came and took away a booklet I had just given out. 

They brought me to their office and dumped everything out of my bag. I stayed calm and said, “What’s in the booklet is well-said. You all need to read it.” I made myself comfortable and sat down. 

When one of them accused me of being against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), I told them about a former police chief in Henan Province who died in a car crash while the three other passengers were unharmed. I said her death was karmic retribution for taking part in the persecution of Falun Dafa

Seeing that I was at ease and with no fear, their attitudes changed, and they treated me nicely. 

They wanted me to leave but I wasn’t done. “You wear police uniforms and should do what you are supposed to. Remember, don’t do evil.”

I asked them to read the literature they had dumped on the table. They smiled and escorted me out of the office.
