(Minghui.org) I have gone through arduous tribulations in my cultivation path over the past year. I was first arrested and taken to a detention center for 10 days. The police then came to my home twice to harass me earlier this year. Under Master Li Hongzhi's compassionate protection, I kept looking inward, maintained righteous thoughts and actions, and finally broke through these tribulations.

During the process, I found that more and more people (including police officers and guards) have awakened and know that Falun Dafa (aka Falun Gong) is good.

Arrested and Detained for 10 Days

I rode my motorcycle back to my hometown to clarify the truth and distribute informational materials. Someone reported me to the police, and I was arrested and taken to the police station.

“Your Talk is Really Good!”

Four young officers interrogated me in the police station. I did not cooperate with them. The police director later came in and said fiercely, “So you refuse to talk!”

They took me under the stairs, which was not covered by surveillance cameras. The director ordered me to kneel down, while two officers pressed my shoulders and someone kicked me in my legs. I was determined not to kneel. The director slapped me, and then the four officers joined in. They slapped me 10 times, but I didn't feel the pain, and my mind was empty.

The officers then took me into a room, handcuffed me to an iron chair, and continued to interrogate me. I kept telling them about Dafa, the staged Tiananmen Self-immolation, the hidden words stone, the crime of organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners, as well as the importance of withdrawing their memberships in the CCP. They listened attentively.

When I mentioned the stone in Guizhou that prophecized the demise of the CCP, one officer said, “If you curse the Communist Party, you could be imprisoned.”

When I told them “Freedom of speech! I'm telling the truth,” they laughed.

One officer took notes on a computer. Another came up to me and whispered, “Your talk is really good! We have arrested many Falun Gong practitioners, but you are the one who’s explained things the best!”

I continued, “Do you understand what I said? The Communist Party is bad, and heaven will destroy it. There are now over 370 million people who have quit the Party. You should renounce the CCP in your heart.” One of the officers said, “Yes! Good.”

After being released from the detention center 10 days later, I went to the police station to get my personal belongings back. They only gave me my belt and money, so I asked, “Please return the Dafa materials.”

The officer was about to go and pick them up, when another officer said, “You have to get permission from the director first.” The director refused to return them.

When I went to pick up my motorcycle, two officers followed me. One of them kept asking me, “Are you still going to practice?” I laughed without answering.

The other officer questioned him, “Why are you asking that?” He then turned to me, “The motorcycle has not been driven for days; it may not start up easily.” He then helped me onto the bike. Although his actions may seem ordinary, it showed his respect for Falun Dafa disciples.

Police Officer: “Do You Hate Me?”

When I was arrested at midnight, several officers took me to a hospital for a medical examination. I clarified the truth to them on the way. One of the officers flexed his wrist and said embarrassingly, “My hand is still numb. I hit you too hard. Do you hate me?”

“No, I don't hate you,” I replied. “We [practitioners] cultivate to be good people. Dafa's Master said, '... Cultivators have no enemies ...'” (“Turning the Wheel Towards the Human World” in The Essentials of Diligent Progress III)

The officer responded, “That's great if you think that way.”

Two Brave Young Men

While I was being held in the detention center, I felt that the environment was very good. It must have been because practitioners who had been there previously did a good job in clarifying the truth. No one stopped me from talking to the inmates about Dafa. During break time, people often surrounded me and asked me to tell them about the practice.

There were two young men who were detained. They told people that their mothers had both practiced Falun Gong. They both agreed, “Falun Gong practitioners are good people, very good people!”

One of them added, “In the past, many people in our village practiced Falun Gong. After dinner, they would come to my house to watch Master Li's lecture videos. Since practicing Falun Gong, the villagers changed for the better and got along in harmony. Unfortunately, after the persecution started, there are fewer people practicing now.”

Some of the inmates later asked me to demonstrate the exercises for them. The two young men encouraged me and said, “You should show them. We'll watch and see who dares to trouble you!”

I showed them the first set of exercises. As soon as I closed my eyes, I immediately entered a state of emptiness. My dimensional field was red with strong energy, and I felt very comfortable. Everyone applauded, and some shouted, “Good practice! Good practice!” One of the young men gave me a thumbs up. A nearby guard pretended not to see it.

“It Would Be Great if You Are All Like Falun Gong Practitioners!”

When the inmates lined up to get hot water or a meal in the cafeteria, there were often people who would cut in line. I regarded myself as a practitioner and stood quietly at the back of the line.

One day, there was a quarrel and, as usual, The 60-year-old cafeteria chef couldn’t stand it and said, “You always fight with each other! Look at this gentleman. It would be great if you are all like Falun Gong practitioners!”

A Business Owner: “Falun Gong is Good!”

Several people from Fujian Province were held in the detention center. They were fond of hearing about Dafa, especially a 50-year-old business owner who often pestered me to talk, as if he hadn't heard enough. At break time, he would often wave to me and shout in a heavy Hokkien accent, “Hey, come here. Tell me about your stuff!”

I talked to him for a few days. I couldn't remember whether I was repeating myself and asked, “Have I already told you this?” He replied, “I really like what you said. Just continue.”

One day, the detention center conducted an inspection. We stood in two rows, and the officers went to each cell to check inside. Two young men had not laid out their sheets or folded the blankets properly, so the officers ordered them to redo it. They did but still didn't meet the requirements. The officers were furious, so I went into the cell and quietly remade the beds.

Cigarette butts were also scattered on the ground. The officers ordered the two men to go in and sweep the floor, but they acted as if they hadn't heard the orders. I then picked up a broom and cleaned the floor.

When I brought the trash out, the business owner raised his right hand and shouted in front of everyone, “Falun Gong is different! Falun Gong is good!” His words broke the silence. Everyone at the scene, including the guards were shocked, but no one said anything.

Detention Center Guard: “The Communist Party Is So Bad!”

People usually sat on stools at break-time, while I sat on the floor cross-legged. One day, an officer came over and asked, “How long can you sit like this?”

“More than an hour,” I replied.

I took the opportunity to clarify the truth to him. He said, “Falun Gong practitioners who came here before told us a lot. I believe what you said.

“I know about Falun Gong. When I traveled to Singapore, I saw people practicing in the parks and squares. I also read the fliers they gave me. I've also seen that in Hong Kong and Macau.”

I told him, “People in over 100 countries practice Falun Gong.”

He added, “It’s only in China that its not allowed. The Communist Party is so bad! It is a one-party dictatorship. You have to pay attention to your safety. A lot of practitioners distribute fliers at night. But you do it in broad daylight. How dare you do that!? If you go out at night, who would arrest you? Falun Gong is good, but you need to pay attention to your safety.”

On the day I was released, he walked up to me and asked, “What are the benefits of practicing Falun Gong?”

“There are many,” I replied. “The most fundamental ones are to keep the body fit and healthy, be a good person, and bring harmony to the family and society. At a higher level, you can return to your true self and obtain the Tao.”

He let out a long “Ohhh” as I left.

2. Harassed Twice at Home

Officer Protects My Copy of Zhuan Falun

In late February this year, two police officers came to my home, one male and one female. The male officer was one of the officers who had previously arrested me. This time, he looked regretful. The female officer put my copy of Minghui Weekly, a desk calendar, and the book Zhuan Falun together and said that she would take them away.

The male officer came over, picked up Zhuan Falun, look through it, then separated it from the rest. When the female officer took away the other materials, I tried to intercept her, but the male officer stopped me and gave me a wink, hinting that he saved Zhuan Falun for me.

After stepping out the door, the female officer seemed reluctant to leave, saying that it would be difficult for her to report that she had fulfilled her duty if she left Zhuan Falun behind. The male officer tried to reassure her that it would be fine. They then left.

Guilty Political Commissar

Three officers returned three days later. The male officer from before was one of them, but he stayed in the car. The political commissar was another. He looked fierce at first and wanted to take me to the police station.

I didn't cooperate with them. He and a younger officer pulled me so hard that it tore my clothes. The male officer from before did not participate in this.

I was pulled to the front door and saw that many bystanders had gathered. The officers couldn't make me budge, so they took down the Dafa-themed couplet from my door.

As the political commissar threatened to take me away, I said, “It's okay for me to go with you, but you must show me your ID. I don't want to be persecuted for no reason.” I then asked my wife to take a picture of his ID.

Seeing this, the young officer slipped out of view. The political commissar took out his ID, opened it up, then quickly closed it so my wife didn't have a chance to take a picture.

There were many people watching on the street. The political commissar seemed embarrassed, and he called the police station. Another two officers soon arrived, including the director.

After the director spoke with the political commissar, the commissar said to me, “You must go to the police station to register this afternoon.” Then they left.

I didn't go to the police station that afternoon, and no one has looked for me since.

I must thank respected Master. Thank you for your compassionate protection!
