Bringing Truth and Hope to Criminal Inmates When I Was Detained for My Faith

July 7, 2022 |   By Jia Ding, a Falun Dafa practitioner in China

(Minghui.org) I was followed and arrested by the police while I was clarifying the truth to people during the pandemic. My home was ransacked. I was detained in another city and was released several days later without signing any statements renouncing Falun Dafa or betraying any practitioner. 

I felt sad when I saw the mess at my home from the police ransacking it. I didn’t cultivate myself well and let Master Li, Falun Dafa’s founder, down. But the following scenes caused me to perk up: paper bills with truth-clarification messages on them were left behind. The waterproof wax I brushed on the money was glowing softly under the sunshine. One-yuan notes were scattered on the ground, and not a single bill was missing. I believe that my great and compassionate master protected us because the notes had the words “Falun Dafa is good” printed on them. 

A man named Ah Bing, who was 26 years old, suffered from cholecystitis at the detention center. A prison guard gave him a mysterious tablet and his stomach became extremely painful after he took it. A person named Lao Sun, who I clarified the truth to, shouted loudly, “Only Master Li can save you! Please repeat, ‘Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’” Ah Bing agreed and recited the two phrases. Surprisingly, the guard didn’t react but watched silently. Ten minutes later, Ah Bing recovered and started to eat.

A man named Xiao Liang was an undergraduate student who was detained for fighting. He became dumbfounded when he learned that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) staged the Tiananmen self-immolation incident to frame Falun Gong. I explained what Falun Gong is, the benefits of practicing it, and its worldwide spread. He couldn’t hold back his tears, weeping, “Finally I have found it. My dismal heart saw a bright light. Falun Dafa is good! Master Li sent an angel to save me. Falun Dafa comes for us, for the sentient beings. Falun Dafa is good!” He gave up the thought of revenge after being released. He said he would read Zhuan Falun after being released. 

A man named Xiao Bo was detained for cell phone fraud. I clarified the truth to him on the day he was going to be released. His tears rolled down his cheek non-stop. His hometown was flooded due to an unannounced water discharge from an upstream reservoir and two hundred people died. He said, “If people in my hometown knew Falun Dafa is good, not so many people would have died. The CCP is an evil demon. You must come to see me when you are released. Thank you.”

The day before I was to be released, I helped another detainee named Zhang quit his membership in the CCP organizations. I told him, “I will go home tomorrow. You are predestined with Falun Dafa. Please remember that Falun Dafa is good. When you have a kind thought towards Falun Dafa, you will be blessed.” 

He said, “Please make sure that you publish my statement of quitting the CCP. I recite ‘Falun Dafa is good’ every day.”
