An Incident That Took Place When Teacher Gave Lectures in China
I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1999. An incident happened during that time when Teacher Li was giving lectures in China. This story, which is remembered by many practitioners, affected my cultivation path deeply; thus I could not forget it.
It happened after Teacher concluded his lectures in Yanji City, Jilin Province, and was about to leave. Teacher and several assistance center directors took a cab to the railway station. After they arrived there, Teacher insisted on paying the cab driver. People around him didn't understand. He explained that his teaching in Yanbian had ended and all accounts had been cleared up. Since no further financial relationship existed, he wanted to pay, as he didn't want to take a cent from his students.
This incident spread far and wide among people and it influenced practitioners greatly. I continue to tell practitioners about it. This opportunity taught me to be mindful of how I conduct myself. Teacher shows his disciples through his actions how they should handle certain situations.
