Glorious Recollections of Attending Teacher's Lecture in Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) On April 5, 1994, Teacher arrived in Jinzhou City to give lectures. Fortunately, I attended the lectures and then, I began the path of cultivation.

1. Graceful Teacher and Magnificent Dafa
At that time, I was unaware that Teacher was coming. A friend offered me three tickets so that my whole family could go. But, my wife refused to go, so I just took two tickets. Then, two days before the lecture, another friend sent me a ticket. Finally, the three members of my family attended the lecture. We really do have predestined relationships with Teacher!
In the classroom, when I first saw Teacher, he impressed me as a tall man with a ruddy face and a kind smile. His bearing was steady and polite; his lecture was methodical. His voice was loud and clear. He did not have extensive lecture notes, only a piece of paper. He spoke for an hour and a half without repeating himself. My impression was that Teacher is not an ordinary person. He opened up our minds with plain language and profound principles.
On the third day, one of my friends also came to the lecture. Holding my hands, he told me with an air of awe, "Did you see that Teacher is not an ordinary person? He is a big Buddha. There are also innumerable small Buddhas in this room. Falun Gong is really an advanced Gong." Hearing this, I cherished this rare cultivation opportunity even more.
There was another event that happened during the lecture. One day before the lecture, Teacher asked a thin, older gentleman with a 90-degree hunchback to go up to the rostrum. I saw him walk up slowly and stand before Teacher. Teacher signaled with his hand for the man to straighten his back. Gradually, the man straightened his back until he was standing up straight After this miracle, the man walked down from the rostrum merrily. Everybody admired Teacher's miraculous power.
Another time, we were practicing the fifth exercise (Reinforcing Supernatural Powers). My eyes were closed, yet I felt that someone was correcting my wife's posture, who was sitting in front of me. I could not help but open my eyes and saw that it was Teacher. He told my wife that the position of the hand should be on the same level as the shoulder, the arm and the back of the hand are on the same level, and the hand should not droop. While saying this, Teacher placed my wife's hand in the right position. Later, I said to my wife, "You are so lucky. Today Teacher corrected your posture in person."
2. My Persistent Ailment Disappeared With Teacher's Help
I contracted a chronic, inflammatory skin disease before I began to cultivate in Falun Gong. It lasted for more than 10 years and all treatments turned out to be ineffective. It spread from the top of my head to the heel of my foot. Due to the terrible itch, my shirt and underpants were bloodstained every day. I took tons of medicine without any effect. At the beginning of my cultivation practice, I had a strong attachment to my disease being cured, so there was not much improvement. Later, I let go of this attachment. Unexpectedly, the disease vanished overnight. All my friends and relatives said, "It is unimaginable and supernatural." Since my xinxing improved, Teacher took away the disease and it has never recurred.
At noon on July 4, 2007, I suddenly felt weak all over and felt like vomiting. I asked my wife to bring a basin. Then I began to vomit a big mouthful of blood. At first, the blood was blackish, and later it became bright red. I was very calm. The next day, my three-year-old grandson said, " I saw Teacher." I asked him, "What does Teacher look like?" He responded, "He is tall and big, and is in this room." I kept on asking what clothes he wore. He answered earnestly, "A yellow kasaya." I realized that Teacher was beside me and protected me once more. Without his help, I may have died.
3. Every Word in Zhuan Falun Is True According to My Experience
Teacher's Zhuan Falun is really a book from heaven. Every word is a fact. Many fellow practitioners have seen that every character is a Buddha and every character is glittering. Soon after starting my cultivation, when I was sitting in meditation at night, I saw a big eye before my left eye. Its size was about three to four times that of my regular eye. I saw the eyebrow, eyelash and pupil clearly. Teacher said in Zhuan Falun,
"They're exercising away there and then all of a sudden there's this big eye right in front of them, and they get startled."
I witnessed that Teacher's words are real and true.
Teacher also said in Zhuan Falun,
"There are also people who later understand the content of my lectures. They begin to let go of their attachments and their bodies are purified. While others’ bodies all feel light, these people just begin to heal their illnesses and feel uncomfortable. In every class there are such people who lag behind with poorer enlightenment quality. "
I was among the people who lag behind. After Teacher's lectures were finished, I began to eliminate karma. I felt cold all over, then my body temperature rose to 39.8 °C (103.64 °F) . I recovered the next day. Later, I had the symptoms of diarrhea and experienced muscle and bone pain. The pain was so extreme that I could not sit or sleep. This time I also recovered quickly. Teacher purified my body fundamentally and cleared all diseases. All real disciples have experienced that.
Teacher also helped me to get rid of my stubborn craving for tobacco. Before, I tried to quit smoking more than 20 times without success. After I began to cultivate in Falun Gong, I decided to attempt to quit smoking again. I persisted for one morning, but began to feel so bad. I could not help but search for cigar butts. I found two in a ashtray and one on the balcony. I rolled up the tobacco in the three ends with paper, and smoked it. In the afternoon, I could not find more butts, so I decided to go downstairs to buy a pack. Right then, it seemed that clouds of smoke were floating towards me, and got into my nose, mouth and throat. That irritating smoke made me extremely uncomfortable. Since then, whenever I thought of smoking, a cloud of white smoke floated over and got into my throat. Soon afterwards, I truly quit smoking. For more than ten years, I have never smoked. Teacher said, "If you really want to cultivate I urge you to quit smoking today, and I guarantee you can quit." (Zhuan Falun) Teacher's words are so effective. Without Teacher's help, it was really hard for me to quit smoking.
I cannot adequately express my gratitude to Teacher in words.
