Stories from Prison

Because of the persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party, I was arrested and sentenced to four years of imprisonment. In March 2005, I was incarcerated in the training team of Hulan City Prison. At that time the prisoners were forced to work peeling garlic. As a form of resistance to the persecution, I refused to do the work. Another prisoner, in his 50s, was not able to work because he was ill. He sat next to me against the wall.

The inmate turned and said to me, "My end is coming." I asked him why. He said, "I suffer from tuberculosis, with expectoration and haemorrhaging. I have been to the hospital twice, but there were so many people there that I could not be treated." I looked at him and said, "You will be fine if you can say in your mind, 'Falun Dafa is good.'" The man blinked and said to me, "Yes, I will do that."

Four days later, he told me joyously that his illness had gone away with no more expectoration or haemorrhaging. He was really overjoyed. He also told me, "I dreamed of a Buddha." When I asked what the Buddha looked like he said, "He shone like gold and levitated in the sky." "Did he say anything to you?" He replied, "The Buddha told me, 'You should be a good person after you are released.' He also said that among the 100 people in this room, less than 10 would be left in the future. Then he disappeared."

Two days later, the training team was divided into different groups, and he was designated to go to a newly built prison in Harbin City. Before his departure, he said to me sincerely, "I will practice Falun Gong after I am released." He was sentenced to three years of imprisonment, and he knew that my term was four years. He asked me to go to his home to teach him Falun Gong, and gave me his home address. I agreed, thinking that one more person would obtain the Fa.

In Hulan City Prison, many people get the flu, especially during the change of seasons in the spring and fall. A prisoner in his 40s told me, "I suffer from colds and flu's many times each year, and it's so hard to get medicine and injections from the hospital. It's hopeless." I told him, "If you trust my words, you will not need to get the medicine and injections." I told him the story about the other man who recovered from tuberculosis. He then started to say in his mind, "Falun Dafa is good." Several days later when he saw me again, he told me that his cold was gone. From that point on, he would tell others about how amazing Falun Gong was and talk about how he would practice Falun Gong after being released.
