(Clearwisdom.net) In June 1994, five other people and I traveled from Beijing to Jinan City in Shandong Province so we could attend Teacher's Falun Gong classes.

Shortly after we settled down in a local guest house, a young man approached us and began to chat. He told us that we were blessed to attend Teacher's classes. He told us that he had followed Teacher to Jinan so he could be near him. The young man used to suffer from severe stomachaches and now he is perfectly healthy because of Falun Gong. Then he asked, mysteriously, "Do you know who Teacher is?" None of us answered. I thought, "Well! Everyone knows that Mr. Li Hongzhi is a famous qigong master and well-known throughout China." The young man paused for a moment before he announced with pride, "Let me put it this way. I saw Teacher flanked by Guanyin (the Bodhisattva of Compassion) and Buddha Shakyamuni." I was astonished to hear this. I thought, "Doesn't that mean Teacher is a Buddha higher than Buddha Shakyamuni?"

A middle-aged woman from a Falun Gong group practice site in Xiangshan, Beijing had just attended Teacher's nine-day Falun Gong lecture in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province. She followed Teacher and came to attend this lecture in Jinan City. That evening, she told us with a big smile, "Teacher destroyed a large demon during class in Zhengzhou. It was a miracle! This is your first Falun Gong class. You must pay good attention to Teacher's Fa lectures." I thought Teacher must be a great divine being to be able to slay demons.

Feeling deep admiration and excitement, all six of us from Beijing listened to Teacher's Fa lectures. We learned that Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance are the principles of the highest level Fa in the universe. Our bodies and minds immediately underwent the most miraculous transformations. After the first day of class, one of us saw with his celestial eye six infants playing in another dimension. Another saw a red field of light over the class with his celestial eye. A friend from Japan who had come with us used to study traditional Chinese medicine. He was greatly surprised to learn such a wonderful cultivation practice.

We experienced more miracles during Teacher's class than I am able to tell about in this article. In the middle of summer, the gymnasium was filled with a gentle breeze, yet there was no air conditioning. Teacher told us to stomp on the floor at a specific time and all of my illnesses disappeared with one wave of His hand. I arrived at class with a difficult gait and after just one class, I walked lightly. A fellow practitioner with an open celestial eye told us that he saw that the gymnasium was filled with Faluns.

My mental state kept improving as well. By imparting His high-level Fa, Teacher taught me the meaning of life. I wrote in my experience-sharing paper that I had found my true home.

During the last class, Teacher displayed a set of large hand signs after He had answered our questions. I didn't understand the meaning of the hand signs, but I felt Teacher was telling us something important and held great hopes for us.

At the end of class, thunderous applause rang throughout the gymnasium. We were about to part with Teacher. All of us stood still, watching Teacher while continuing to applaud strongly. Teacher watched us and waved goodbye with a smile. We stood still. Teacher raised His arms and rotated a giant Falun. We felt that we were basking in Teacher's energy field. The vision of the giant rotating Falun has been fixed in everyone's memory. With tears in our eyes, we bid Teacher farewell reluctantly.
