[Minghui Net] Around 8:40 a.m. on June 18, in the western sky of Hengliang Town, Liuhe County, Jiangsu Province, an amazing mirage suddenly made its appearance and attracted a crowd of several hundred people.
The mirage bore a resemblance to a square-shaped mountain. All of a sudden, it rose from the horizon and, like a crouching dragon, slowly moved along Ningtong Highway. The images, including a mountain with a luxuriant forest and clouds floating around, were clearly discernable. It looked like scenes from a fairyland. Halfway up the mountain there seemed to be a temple with lots of steps. The whole mirage was alternately emerging and receding.
Not until around 9 a.m. did the phenomenon begin to fade away. The mirage lasted for more than 20 minutes. (Details collected from Yangzi Evening News on June 18, 2001.)
Ordinary people have their own so-called "natural" explanation for a mirage. Dafa practitioners, however, know it has its own significance. Some practitioners discovered lately that every time after we sent out our righteous thoughts during specific times ("The Fa rectifies the Cosmos, the Evil is completely eliminated"), it would always rain. June 18 was a Monday, and there was also rainfall before and after the mirage. After the evil is completely eliminated, the universe will be clear and clean; wonderful marvels will manifest, and the world will be fantastic! As the Fa rectification proceeds, the true Buddha Fa will gradually be exhibited in the human world. By then, we shall witness the grand scene of "the great disclosure of the truth will leave the world in amazement." [Teacher's poem, "the Knowing Heart"]
