Persisting in Studying the Falun Gong Teachings at a Labour Camp

During the four years that I was illegally held in a Detention Centre and Forced Labour Camp, I had access to new articles by Master and read them. Under the merciful care of Master, I was able to study the Fa (law or principle, the teachings in Falun Gong), cultivate myself, and validate Falun Dafa. I'd like to share my experience and understanding.

Only a few days after I was illegally detained in a Detention Centre, my wife began to deliver articles written by the founder of Falun Gong, Master Li, to me. Upon returning to my cell, I managed to pass the articles on to other practitioners. In one or two days, all the practitioners there had read the new articles by Master. As more and more practitioners were illegally detained there, I decided to write down some of the contents from Essentials for Further Advancement, "Hongyin" and other Fa lectures from memory to study and share with them.

Once, my wife delivered Zhuan Falun to me, and as I read it day and night I felt that I was melting into the Fa. One time a guard realised that I had some Faun Dafa materials and came to search the cell. He searched me and the cell thoroughly, but he could not find anything.

As for practising the exercises, as soon as we were illegally detained in the detention centre, we started to practise. Because of this, the guards beat us up, but we were not afraid and persisted in practising. Two days later, after they knew the truth about Falun Dafa, they only yelled when we practised. One of the policemen even saw a white energy above me when we practised. Master let them witness the miracle of Falun Dafa in this way. After that, they started to help us. During hot days, they opened the door and let us to go out to the vegetable field. We were able to tell them the true facts about Falun Dafa while we enjoyed the cool breeze.

I was placed in several cells. In each cell that I stayed, some people asked me to teach them how to practise Falun Gong and study the Fa. When we practised, others did not talk or smoke, and this became an informal rule that everyone followed.

Later, I was sent to the Pingantai Labour Camp. The second day after arriving I wanted to let the practitioners there read the new articles by Master. At that time, a so-called "helper" asked if I would write some letters for him. I put the pen and paper underneath my bed. In the still of the night, with a little light coming in from outside, I wrote down the new articles by Master: "Path," and an article from Mighui.net entitled, "In a Few Words: Good People" and Master's Comments, "Also in a Few Words". The next evening we were watching a video together and I found a chance to pass the articles on to a practitioner that I knew.

After we studied the Fa and shared our understandings, we realised that we should not cooperate with this persecution, so we started to refuse to the camp exercise drills or work and we recited Fa principles aloud. In this way we persisted for eight days and we shocked and frightened the evil with a mighty furor. After that, the guards put me into solitary confinement and tortured me with all kinds of excruciating methods. They tortured me with electric shocks three times a day. However, I could only hear the crackling sound from the electrical charge and see the electric baton sparking, I didn't feel any pain. When that guard persecuted me viciously, I would send out righteous thoughts every hour and every minute to get through the worst of it. The guard couldn't convert me, and then he threatened me, "If you won't convert, I will let you die inside there. If you don't convert in 10 days, then we'll keep you there for 20 days. If you don't convert in 20 days, we'll keep you there for 30 days."

Under the merciful care of Master, I was released from solitary confinement only ten days later and afterwards I became even more steadfast.

I understand clearly that all of what I have accomplished is coming from the mighty power of Falun Dafa and righteous thoughts and the righteous belief in Master and the Fa. I have cultivated in Falun Dafa for almost 10 years. At this moment, what I mostly want to say is, "Master, Thank you!"
