(Clearwisdom.net) I was extremely blessed to have attended Master's lecture in the Hockey Hall of Harbin No. 8 District Stadium in the beginning of August, 1994. In the class, Master taught us much on how to be a kind person, value virtue and do good deeds according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. During every lecture, Master only had a piece of paper for some talking points. Rather than using a textbook or teaching materials, Master had a well thought-out plan in his heart. In the lecture, Master imparted much knowledge from astronomy, geography, history, physics, chemistry and the life sciences, and also illustrated his points using many examples from real life to make us understand more clearly. It made me feel that Master is very knowledgeable and helped me realize the true meaning and goal of life.

There were not a lot of students who were from Harbin City in that session. Most came from faraway places, and many were veteran students who had already attended Master's lectures twice to four times. In the next four to five years after the lecture, more and more people started to practice Falun Gong in Harbin. Falun Gong practitioners could be seen everywhere, doing the morning exercises. During those years, practitioners in Harbin held large-scale group exercise activities to introduce the Fa, and we held some cultivation experience sharing conferences as well. During those conferences, we shared our experiences on upgrading xinxing and how to be a better person in everyday life.

During those years, nobody could imagine or even think it possible that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would begin persecuting Falun Gong starting in July 1999, and that one day we would need to show a record of the glory of Falun Gong widely spreading in China. We didn't take many photos back then. The followings are just a few small glimpses of history being made during that period.

Morning practice was from 4:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m.. It was dark at 4:00 a.m. and it was snowing, but the practitioners came early to clean the snow-covered ground.

After cleaning the snow, it was still dark, and we practiced the exercises

Even though the CCP has lied a thousand times, history remains unchanged. The truth of history won't be changed by the CCP's lies. When people clearly realize and acknowledge the actual historical facts and then choose to stand on the side of righteousness and moral conscience, the lies will collapse upon themselves.
