(Clearwisdom.net) It was March 25, 1993 when I first attended Teacher's lectures. This was the happiest and most unforgettable day in my life. My health dramatically improved as I attended the lectures and began to practice Falun Gong

I was impressed that Master was different from other qi gong masters when I first saw him. He looked very friendly, upstanding, a merciful yet mighty persona that was immediately respectable. I listened to his lecture without any messy thoughts. It was very quiet in the venue and no one talked. A several hour long lecture passed like a flash. After the lecture, my thoughts were clear and I felt comfortable and relaxed as if I had just left massage therapy.

The pains of long-term colon cancer, which had tortured me for 16 years, stopped from this day on. Other chronic diseases such as heart disease, rhinitis, and cervical and lumbar pain also vanished. I realized that I had found the long-lost righteous way, so I tossed out all the medicine at home and have been in good health without doctors or medicine for 17 years now.

After seeing the miracle that happened to me, my wife joined me to attend a ten-day lecture. We decided to give up other qigong practices and steadfastly practice Falun Gong after the lectures.

For the second lecture series in Wuhan approximately two thousand people enrolled. As the class ended, groups of twenty to thirty students assembled for group photos. I recall some of us shoving one another in order to get next to Master and others craning their necks forward jockeying for better position. Master always looked around at them with a smile as if he was taking care of a group of children who still had much to learn.

I now regret that we did not find a better photographer and a good indoor location for the photos. They were taken outdoors. How shameful we are to respectful Teacher!
