Attending Master's Lectures in Zhengzhou City
(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner from Bianyuan County, Sichuan Province. I attended Master's lecture in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province, on June 11, 1994.
I was very sick before I practiced Falun Dafa. I had many health problems, and I was sore and ached all over. I tried Western medicine, Chinese herbs, acupuncture, all kinds of prescriptions, but none of them were effective. I suffered a lot.
One day a friend asked me, “Did you know there is a popular qigong practice that can heal illness?” As soon as I heard this, I asked when and where I could attend that lecture.
I was told that it is Falun Gong and that the Master was Mr. Li Hongzhi. He was going to give a lecture on June 11, 1994, in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province. I was so glad to hear that. Three of my friends and I decided to go straight to Zhengzhou to attend Master Li's lecture.
Early on the morning of the first day, we saw a patient being taken to the lecture hall on someone's back. There were two people supporting him on either side and a third patting his back. The patient's skin looked yellow.
The security officer stopped them and said, “You are not allowed in; you are not allowed in!”
We moved on and went into the lecture hall. It was a gymnasium capable of holding 3,000 to 4,000 people. It was harmonious and quiet. About 9:00 in the morning, a tall, handsome young man appeared on the stage. There was a burst of applause. He was Master Li Hongzhi!
Master introduced himself and the characteristics of Falun Dafa, and then began his lessons. Master's lecture was easy to understand. I listened carefully and understood everything by heart. I had never felt so comfortable. I was very excited and shared my feelings with my companions.
The next day we arrived at the lecture early in the morning. To our surprise, we saw the patient from the previous day sitting there. We could not believe our eyes and asked him what had happened.
He said, “We waited outside yesterday early in the morning for Master to cure my illness. I knelt on the ground when I saw him. Master told me, 'Stand up.' I was timid because I could not stand by myself. Master said, 'It's all right, you can stand up by yourself.' To my surprise, I stood up by myself. Master then encouraged me, 'Walk into the lecture hall by yourself.' I looked at Master and looked at my family. I asked myself, 'Am I cured?' In the end, I walked in. My whole family was so excited, and all of us were in tears.”
Master gave 10 lectures in eight days. Every day we learned the exercises after the lecture. The exercises were demonstrated by a practitioner and illustrated by Master. The last day was for questions.
During the lectures I understood that people suffered because of their karma. It is caused by the bad things we did in our past lives. Master said, “suffering is repaying a karmic debt,..." (Lecture One in Zhuan Falun)
Eight days passed in a flash. My pain disappeared without my being aware of it. It was so amazing. No wonder so many people came from all over the country to attend this lecture.
After I returned home, although sometimes I still had pain, it became less and less. Master said:
“Rather, we talk about holistically adjusting practitioners’ bodies to enable you to practice cultivation. With an ill body you cannot develop gong at all.” (Lecture One in Zhuan Falun)
With Dafa cultivation practice, all my symptoms disappeared, and I became energetic. My colleagues said that I had become a different person! I was so fortunate to attend Master's lecture in person!
