(Minghui.org) I was fortunate to attend Master’s lecture series in Jinzhou, Liaoning Province from April 5 to April 12, 1994. This became the starting point of my cultivation.

Attending Master’s Lecture

It was a difficult period in my life. I had suffered from several illnesses for years, including dysfunctional uterine bleeding, and psoriasis. Medical treatments in well-known hospitals in Beijing and Shanghai didn’t help. I was in so much agony that I wanted to die.

One of my colleagues told me about an upcoming lecture series by Master Li. However, more than 30 years of atheism brainwashing made it difficult for me to believe in cultivation. My colleague told me, “Falun Gong is an energy exercise of the Buddha School. I think it’s pretty good after reading the introduction. Your health could probably benefit from it. Why don’t you try it?” Given her sincerity and my poor health, I agreed to attend Master’s lecture series.

I went to the Bayi Theater early on the first day of the lecture and bought the book Zhuan Falun. Many people had taken their seats, though it was still very early. I heard dialects from various parts of the country. I sat down and opened the book. On seeing Master’s picture, I thought, “He looks so young!”

Concentrating on Teachings

Attending the First Lecture: Listening in Awe

Master walked onto the stage and introduced himself. He said that all those who had come for treatment of diseases or supernormal capabilities should give up their attachments. I thought, “I’m here because of my illnesses. Master has known it. I’d better follow Master’s instruction, let go of my attachments, and concentrate on his teaching.”

When listening to Master, I was fascinated by Master’s lecture. He talked about the energy exercises, self-cultivation, why people come down with illnesses, the purpose of life, and I was shaken. These were things I hadn’t heard before. Master answered many questions that had puzzled me for years.

I went to sleep as soon as I got home, and didn’t wake up until after 6 a.m. What a wonderful rest! It was a feeling I hadn’t had for so many years! My chronic bleeding had caused anemia and insomnia. I didn’t expect that I could sleep that well after attending the very first lecture. Ever since then, I have slept well.

Attending the Second Lecture: Buddha’s Truly Exist

I attended the second lecture the next day. As soon as I entered the theater, I felt pressure on my forehead. It was as if my forehead was swollen. Master said, “I’m going to talk about the celestial eye today. Your forehead may feel pressure or swollen as if something tries to drill into it. It’s because I’m working on opening your celestial eye. Don’t massage your forehead.” Ah! No wonder I felt the pressure and my forehead felt uncomfortable! Master taught us the principles about the celestial eye, clairvoyance, the power of knowing fate, etc. Time flew by so fast! The second lecture was over too soon.

I fell asleep as soon as I got into bed that night. I woke up in the middle of the night and sat up with my eyes closed. Soon, I saw a small shining spot approaching me. It got brighter as it got closer to me. I saw a golden Buddha inside a golden radiating circle. Though I couldn’t see his face clearly, I thought he must be Master. I had read the book Falun Gong and knew that Master had law bodies.

I stared at Master’s law body quietly, and thought, “Ah! Buddhas truly exist!” The ideas of Atheism, which had been instilled into my mind for 30 years, disappeared!

The golden Buddha disappeared after a while, but it suddenly became as bright as daytime. I felt as if I was covered by warm sunshine. It was a chilly night in April, but I felt as if I was floating in warm air – among white clouds. It was wonderful and so comfortable!

As I continued to sit on my bed, another scene unfolded in front of my eyes. It was an ink painting of mountains and water. It slowly moved from the left to the right, quietly, and I kept watching it for a long while. I didn’t know how much time had passed, but I realized that I had to get up early the next morning to go to work. The scene disappeared as soon as I had that thought.

I was happy for the whole day, thinking of Master’s lectures at work. I looked forward to going to the next lecture in the evening every day. I concentrated during the lecture and didn’t want to miss a single word.

Attending the Eighth Lecture: Learning About the Cosmic Orbit:

Master discussed the Cosmic Orbit during the 8th lecture. I was half asleep that night when I suddenly felt that my blanket and myself were elevated. I cried in fear and tried to grab the bed. I stayed in bed, but as soon as I let go, I felt that I elevated again.

The End of the Lecture Series: Was it True or Illusion

Towards the end of the lecture series, Master asked students to write down their experiences. He said he would read every experience, and if he couldn’t finish reading, he would read them on the train. I wrote a long experience sharing, pouring out the miseries I had suffered in my life. I wrote in tears as if speaking to my family member who is willing to listen to my sad stories. 

I regret having wasted a lot of Master’s precious time. I told Master in my writing about the change in my view of life and my deep gratitude and asked at the end if what I had seen was true or an illusion. My question reflected how deeply atheism had confused me and made me doubt the scenes I had seen!

During the question and answer session at the end of the last lecture, Master stopped in the middle of answering a question, and said, “A student asked if what she had seen was true or an illusion. Think about it. Why had you never seen it before? Yes, you truly saw it.”

I saw Master at the Bayi Square one time. He looked tall, compassionate, and stately. I was filled with gratitude. When I walked out of the Bayi theater on the last day of the lecture, I looked up at the sky and saw white clouds floating in a pure blue sky. Happiness filled my heart. “I started cultivating! I have a Master! I’m a very happy person!”

Cultivating Seriously: Experiencing Sickness Karma

Ever since then, I have studied the Fa, done the exercises, and cultivated my xinxing every day. I no longer hold grievances against those people who hurt me. I happily treat all the people with compassion, feeling fulfilled and carefree!

I threw away all my medicine. I knew Master was cleansing my body, and dissolving my karma when I experienced illness symptoms. After cultivating for three months, I noticed some blood when doing the exercises. I wasn’t afraid, but cleaned myself, and continued with my exercises. 

My workplace happened to give gynecology examinations for all women employees. I went to the examinations. A doctor found that the bleeding was because a myomata, a benign tumor of the uterus, had come out from my cervix. The doctor pulled out the tumor with an artery clamp. It was a white tumor about the size of an egg with a four-centimeter-long tail. 

Before I cultivated myself, I went to see a specialist in Beijing about my uterine bleeding. The specialist suspected that I had a myomata, but it couldn’t be seen through an ultrasound, because it was small and well-hidden. I didn’t expect it to come out by itself, without any surgery, after I practiced Falun Dafa for three months. It was amazing!

My psoriasis was gone as well. My skin looked much finer. The diseases that had tortured me for years were all gone. My health had improved so much that I could wear dresses. 

No words can describe my gratitude. Because of my huge changes, my family and friends witnessed the power of Falun Dafa. Many of them started practicing Falun Dafa too. 

My favorite radio program is Recalling Master’s Grace. I love listening to fellow practitioners’ experiences, especially those during their early days of cultivation, and especially when I was unhappy. Their beautiful and touching stories brought me to tears and reminded me of the lecture series I attended. Given my sister’s encouragement, I finally wrote my experience. I motivate myself to cultivate as diligently as I had done during my early days!
