(Minghui.org) I attended Master Li’s lectures that were held twice in the Jilin University auditorium from April 29 to May 8, 1994. The excitement, joy, and happiness of being taught by Master in person is beyond words.
Master had a sturdy figure, kind eyes, an amiable face, and a loud, clear voice. Those who came into contact with Master could truly sense peacefulness, compassion, happiness, and beauty. Afterwards, many said they experienced what Master said:
“Bathed in divine light, conduct and thought become right.” (The Third Talk, Zhuan Falun)
Tears of Gratitude
Master spoke using language that was simple and easy to understand, but the content was profound. I felt that the more I listened, the more I wanted to hear. What puzzled the new students was that while listening to Master’s lectures, many students shed tears. I was one of them and couldn’t hold them back.
I later understood that practitioners sometimes weep while listening to Master because our knowing side understands what Master did for us. Master endured our pain and bore our sins at different levels, dimensions, and times in history. Master gave us a Falun, energy mechanisms, and amazing, priceless things. So, the tears of gratitude were from my knowing side, because Dafa disciples endured untold hardships for millions of years looking forward to this day.
My Questions Are Answered
When I was nine years old, my father was beaten to death by bad people during the Cultural Revolution launched by Mao, former head of the Chinese Communist Party. My frail and sickly mother took care of me and my six siblings, including my two-year-old younger brother, and my elderly grandfather. The trauma and the depression of our miserable lives caused me to suffer from liver disease, stomach problems, kidney disease, rheumatism, neurosis, and other ailments since I was 12 years old. I was always seeking medical treatment.
I participated in the class because I heard that many people had their illnesses resolved. However, when I went to the class, looked at Master, and listened to what he said, I forgot about my ailments and other trivial matters. At first, I was new to the terms “high-level,” “saving people,” “karma,” and “cleansing the body” that Master talked about, but the more I listened, the more I wanted to hear.
What surprised me the most was that I had an answer to the question that had puzzled me for decades: What is the meaning of life? Some people pursue fame, while others want money, and so on.
Real Truth and Personal Experience
“In fact, let me tell you that a person can levitate once the great heavenly circuit is opened – it is just that simple.” (Lecture Eight. Zhuan Falun)
One morning, on the way to Jilin University, I suddenly started to run. It felt as if my feet were not touching the ground. Because I didn’t yet understand that practitioners experience many unique things, I said out loud, “What’s wrong with me?” The people who were with me laughed. After running about 25 meters, I stopped. When they caught up, one asked me what happened. I said, “I don’t know. I just couldn’t stop, but I’m okay now.”
After I attended Master’s first lecture, I was free of illness and feel refreshed. My worldview, outlook on life, and values have all changed. My mood became upbeat and happy. Even the sky, the ground, and my surroundings seemed to change. My past worries and troubles were gone.
After I returned from Changchun, I told people that Falun Dafa was good and that Master was compassionate and great. Those who knew me believed it. My neighbors, colleagues, relatives, and friends all witnessed how great and extraordinary Falun Dafa was from my physical and mental changes. One neighbor said, “After you returned from Changchun, you looked so healthy and energetic! Even your complexion glowed.”
My supervisor at work asked me, “Can you invite Master Li here to teach everyone?” I said, “Master’s schedule for the entire year is already filled up. He has been invited to give lectures across China. Most lectures are held in the provincial capital cities, and thousands of people attend them. If anyone wants to learn, I know that Master will give lectures in Dalian and Harbin this year.”
Trip to Harbin
A group of 25 of us attended Master’s lecture held at the Harbin Ice Hockey Hall on August 5, 1994. There were about 6,000 of us. Students came from all over the country and from all walks of life. The four or five students sitting in the row behind me didn’t look like just anybody. During a conversation I learned that they were from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Human Body Science Research Institute.
During this lecture, the evils in other dimensions interfered with Master’s teaching. It was reflected in this dimension when Master often coughed and faced obstacles as he taught. Veteran students with good enlightenment understood that compassionate Master suffered hardships and bore the karma for all sentient beings, including the students and disciples who were there.
In Harbin, so that more people could learn about Falun Dafa, Master gave an additional seminar on August 10, 1994. During that seminar Master offered to resolve one illness. If someone did not have any diseases, he or she could think of a loved one’s illness. At the time my mother had glaucoma and cataracts. She was almost blind in one eye and was about to have surgery. I wished to make my mother’s eyes better. When I got home from Harbin, my mother told me that she could suddenly see.
I had an amazing experience in Harbin: My ten-year-old daughter wanted to use the restroom, but we couldn’t find one. We asked a few people but they said they didn’t know. The employees in a supermarket said that their restroom was out of order. Seeing the child’s suffering, everyone was very anxious.
Just when my daughter was at her limit, a 16 or 17-year-old girl in a light yellow shirt suddenly appeared out of nowhere. She asked, “Do you want to go to the restroom? Follow me, I will take you.” She led us out of the supermarket and quickly found a restroom. I was in a hurry, but when I went to thank this kind girl, she was gone. I later wondered, “Doesn’t compassionate Master help and protect his disciples in times of distress?”
