(Minghui.org) I am 82 years old and have been practicing Falun Dafa for over 20 years. The hardships I have experienced over the course of my cultivation have made me stronger, and my belief in Master and Dafa has become firmer than ever as a result. I am very grateful that Dafa has given me a second life.

I returned home and found three police officers waiting for me after spending a day clarifying the truth last April. They asked me where I'd been and what I'd done.

Despite their surprise appearance, I realized there was no reason to panic, as Master was with me.

I calmly said, “Today, I went out to do what I should do. I did not do especially well. I will go again tomorrow.”

They wanted to take me to the police station, but I refused to go.

“I don't belong there. I won't go.”

They asked why I refused to give up practicing Falun Gong.

“Without Falun Gong in my life, I would have died a long time ago,” I said.

I started to send righteous thoughts in an attempt to eliminate the evil. A few moments later, the officers said they would come back the following day and left.

I immediately thought, “Alright. If you come again, I will tell you the truth about Falun Dafa again. I want to save you!” They never returned.

Another run-in with officials occurred last fall when I went to the hospital to visit my daughter-in-law. Several police officers showed up and said they'd seen me posting fliers about Falun Gong on the public video surveillance system. They demanded that I go with them.

“Falun Gong is the best,” I replied. “It teaches people to follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I want more people to know about such a good thing!”

I refused to leave. They lift me up and carried me out of the hospital. I said that I would not go with them.

“Your car will not move!” I said.

Indeed, they could not start the car. They called a taxi to take me to the police station. I recited Master's Hong Yin in my heart. I was not afraid of them.

We arrived at the police station at about 11 a.m. They repeatedly asked me about who made the fliers and where I got them. I felt sorry for them. They were completely oblivious to the terrible fate that was awaiting them!

I answered, “I can't say. You will do bad things and that will be bad for you.”

They stopped questioning me around mid-afternoon. One of the officers made a note of “No confession.” They told me to sign the note, but I refused. They then picked up a needle to take a sample of my blood. I told them I wouldn't let them do it even if they put a knife to my neck.

They begged me, “Could you post your fliers somewhere else… not in the area we are responsible for monitoring?”

I said, “Posting fliers here brings blessings to this area! I want more people to know about this good news. Isn't it good for everyone to receive blessings?”

“Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” I exclaimed.

The police officers in the room repeated the sentences after me. My compassion had touched everyone in the room. With Master’s protection, I returned home safely.

I am so thankful for Master! Master's mighty virtue saved these people from otherwise pitiful lives! This serves to show that in front of a Falun Dafa practitioner, lives controlled by the evil have no power.

Master said:

“When you encounter a tribulation, that great compassion will help you overcome it. At the same time, my Law Bodies will look after you and protect your life, but you will still have to go through the ordeal.” (Chapter III, Falun Gong)

My understanding is that, when facing a tribulation, we must keep a clear mind. We need to follow the Fa and should not use an ordinary person’s mindset. If our heart is disturbed, evil will seize the opportunity.

“Compassion is an enormous energy, the energy of righteous gods. The more compassion that is present, the greater this energy becomes, and it can disintegrate anything that is bad.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Washington DC International Fa Conference” )

The most important thing is to believe in Master and believe in Dafa. We must use our compassion to treat people well and save them. When we are full of compassion, situations will rapidly change for the better.

I am deeply honored to be a Falun Dafa practitioner. I will follow the path Master has arranged for me and return to my true home.
