Former Drug Addict in China Finds out About Falun Gong Whilst in Jail

Having heard that the daughter of a relative had been jailed two years ago for taking drugs, I gave her a copy of an article entitled, "A Letter to the Beijing Residents." When she read the letter, she screamed with surprise. "I was asked to do the same thing to a Falun Gong practitioner when I was in jail. Everything it says here is true. Why does this still happen? Isn't it disgraceful?" Overwhelmed by the incident, she related to us her experience while she was in jail.

"At the beginning, the supervisor wanted the eight of us (former drug addicts, or those detained due to drug offences) to threaten a Falun Gong practitioner. The supervisor said that she couldn't care less what methods we used, as long as the practitioner was willing to give up the practice. If we did not succeed, we would also be punished. Apart from using brutal force and abusive language on the practitioner, what else could we do? When our drug addictions got the better of us, we went all the way and beat the living daylights out of the Falun Gong practitioner. I, however, was softhearted. I simply could not bear seeing another person being beaten that way. When I saw the righteousness of the practitioner, I showed great respect for her and was moved by her integrity.

I tried to persuade her to stop practising. I told her that when she went home she could do whatever she liked and would not have to suffer all this punishment. Seeing that I was kindhearted, she secretly taught me the principles of Falun Dafa and told me to constantly recite "Falun Dafa is good. Truth, Compassion, Forbearance is good."

Later, the wardens wanted me to threaten another practitioner. From this other person, I learnt a lot more about Falun Dafa, and I managed to memorise many poems from Hong Yin as well. Every day, whenever I had a chance, I recited those poems to myself. One day, I suddenly discovered that hair started to grow on the small bald spot on my head. I showed it to others and they were also surprised. By the end of my two months in jail, my hair had completely re-grown, and has stayed as such since. The whole thing was rather mysterious, but it gave me more confidence in Falun Dafa. Practitioners all seem to be good people."

After listening I said to the girl: "It is because you treated the practitioner kindly and you constantly recited 'Falun Dafa is good' that you were rewarded. The founder of Falun Dafa, Mr. Li Hongzhi is merciful and so is Falun Dafa. You will be blessed for both your kind thoughts and actions. I hope you will get rid of your drug addiction so that you can get on with your life." She responded that she wished to start cultivating in Falun Gong in the future.
