(Minghui.org) I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996 and was arrested four times for upholding my faith after the Chinese communist regime began to persecute Dafa in 1999.

Each time I was detained, the authorities used violence in attempts to force me to give up my belief. But I kept the following the Dafa teachings and never gave in.

Master said,

“If a cultivator can let go of the thought of life and death under any circumstance, evil is sure to be afraid of him. If every student is able to do this, evil will of itself no longer exist. All of you are already aware of the principle of mutual-generation and mutual-inhibition. If you are not afraid, the factor that would make you afraid will cease to exist.” (“Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s),” Essentials for Further Advancement II)

The director of the local brainwashing center expressed his interest in learning Falun Dafa upon witnessing the miracle that happened to me while I was detained there.

Waking Up from An Eight-Day Coma

Several officers broke into my home on November 6, 2001 and took me to a brainwashing center. A dozen officers beat and kicked me until I passed out. While I was barely conscious, I heard an officer shout, “She’s pretending! Burn her with a red-hot metal rod!” Then I completely fainted.

When I came to, it was eight days later. The director of the brainwashing center told me that while I was in a coma, I had bloody stool nonstop and was taken to the local hospital, where I was found to have lumbar dislocation and two broken ribs on the left side.

As my bleeding was very serious, the local hospital said they weren’t equipped to treat my condition and refused to take me in for inpatient care.

With no other ways to treat me, the director brought me back to the brainwashing center and asked the two people who had beaten me the hardest to read Zhuan Falun to me. I regained consciousness on the eighth day and heard the two people's voices reading the book to me, although I still couldn’t move my body or open my eyes.

When one of the two people misread a word, I subconsciously spoke out to correct him. This scared them both. But they were also excited and shouted, “She woke up!”

The director came over and asked if I was hungry. I could tell that he was very sincere and cared about my life. He also agreed to let me study the Fa and gave me three Dafa books.

When the head of the 610 Office came to inspect the brainwashing center a few days later, he was infuriated upon seeing the Dafa books in my room. 

He ordered the brainwashing center director to remove the books, but that director replied, “Whoever wants to remove the books should do it himself. And you have to take responsibility should anything happen to her.”

After the 610 Office head left, the brainwashing center director told those two people to continue reading the books to me. He said, “I will also practice Falun Dafa if you recover.”

Within a month, my health improved a lot and I was released. I later learned that the director left the brainwashing center not long after I was released.

A Letter to My Daughter's Teacher

When I was not in detention, I also seized every possible opportunity to tell people that Falun Dafa is nothing like what's depicted by the communist regime's hate propaganda. Below is one example.

One day in 2001, my daughter’s school required every student to buy a book that framed and slandered Dafa. Some fellow practitioners suggested that I could pay for the book and then burn it. But I decided not to buy it.

My daughter did not explain to her teacher why she did not buy the book. Her classmates mistakenly thought that we could not afford it and generously chipped in money to help her. I was touched by their kindness and then wrote a letter to the teacher to explain everything.

In the letter, I first thanked the teacher and the classmates for their kindness. Then I explained that it wasn’t about the money, but because the Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident talked about in the book is a hoax to demonize Falun Dafa. I said I shouldn’t support anything that deceives people. I also told them that I practice Falun Dafa and had received tremendous benefits from it.

I was glad that the teacher understood the facts and read my letter to the students.
