(Minghui.org) I had the pleasure of watching Shen Yun perform live in Taiwan. The audience was quiet throughout the show. Everyone was immersed in the world of Shen Yun.

After returning to China from Taiwan, I made sure that I stayed focused whenever I watched the Shen Yun performance broadcast by the New Tang Dynasty TV station. I gained much insight from watching the show.

When other practitioners came to my place to watch the Shen Yun show, I had one request – no talking or eating when watching the show.

Master said:

“In this dimension it was young people who were performing, while in other dimensions, many of my Law Bodies and many divine beings were doing so. (Applause) The strength of the impact on people, as with the changes it caused in them, were very similar to what happened back when I personally taught the Fa early on. (Applause) So it has effected tremendous changes in people.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2007 New York Fa Conference,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. VIII)

Many people became quite emotional after watching Shen Yun perform. Some cried from the beginning of the show to the end. Some saw divine beings. We read news reports of their experiences.

However, some practitioners I talked to didn't experience the greatness of Shen Yun. One practitioner ate and drank while she watched the show. How did she feel afterward? She couldn't even remember the programs – thus she had nothing to say about it. One practitioner felt tired and stopped watching. Another one fell asleep on the sofa. One said he could not understand the program.

I consider myself ignorant in terms of music. Yet, one time as I sat quietly watching the Shen Yun Symphony, I felt energy flowing through my body.

What I would like to say is that how much the Shen Yun show affects us depends on our mindset while watching the show. The average person who has no musical background may see the show as just entertainment. Only those who pay attention to the show itself can see the depth of it.

This is my own understanding, please kindly point out anything inappropriate.
