(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. A practitioner gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun and an exercise instruction DVD. I could not hold back my tears as I read this precious book.

For a long time, I had felt that life was meaningless and hopeless, and had contemplated suicide. The teachings of Dafa touched my heart, gave me hope and helped me see the true meaning of life.

Reciting Master's Poems Wards Off Harm

I was arrested and taken to a forced labor camp in 2001. The guards tried to “transform” practitioners and set up a special task force to deal with those who refused to give in.

The guards divided us into groups, taking turns trying to “transform” us. Three guards were assigned to each practitioner. One threatened me, “In less than three days, you will be 'transformed.' We will get tough with you if you don't 'transform' in two hours. We will work on you around the clock.”

I could only remember and recite a few poems from Hong Yin since we were not allowed to read Dafa books.

Master wrote,

“Dafa is what you carry everywhere,Zhen Shan Ren, rooted in the mind;A great Arhat walks the earth,Gods and demons fear with awe.” (“Benevolent Might” from Hong Yin)

Reciting the poems was very effective. The guards did not dare to hit me during the first eight days. I then began to slack off in reciting the poems and instead talked to the guards.

One guard said, “You look normal today. You used to look big and tall.”

I realized Master was giving me a hint. Was it because of reciting the Fa that I appeared big and tall to the guards? The evil was not able to do anything when I steadfastly believed in Master and Dafa and held righteous thoughts. When I slacked off in reciting the Fa and maintaining righteous thoughts, the guards began to torture me.

One of the guards brought a 30,000-volt electric baton. There were already three batons in the room. With the batons in their hands, they said, “Say that your Master lied to you!”

When I refused, they shocked me. They shocked me again whenever I refused to say what they wanted. Then they used the 30,000-volt baton. I felt my knuckles knocking against each other, making a rattling sound.

“Indeed this new baton is much more powerful,” I thought to myself. Then, I heard a voice say,

“If he is able to let go of life and death, he is a god; if he isn’t able to let go of life and death, he is human.” (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)

I began to recite this Fa and the electric baton ran out of electricity. The guards were stunned and left the room in a hurry.

Refusing to Betray Master

Although they tortured me for three days, I still refused to “transform.” I was then transferred to the Baoding Forced Labor Camp.

There, the guards tortured me on the death bed. They tied my head to the bed and then strapped my body to the bed with a rope starting from my feet to my chest. Then, they cuffed my hands to the top of the bed, completely immobilizing me. The pain was unbearable by the third day.

I made up my mind that I would not betray Master or Dafa no matter how unbearable the pain was. I was tied to the death bed for over a month. I never succumbed to the evil, and my body was not injured.

The head of the forced labor camp asked me if I hated him for persecuting me. When I told him that I didn't hate him, he was surprised.

I enlightened that the evil will disintegrate if we always act as a cultivator, truly believe in Master and Dafa, maintain a clear mind and have strong righteous thoughts.
