In Yangshuo we visited the Silver cave which was filled with amazing cystaline structures. Master Ou mentioned that he wished the formations were better protected from oxidization from all the CO2 emitted from all the tourists breathing. We ended the day with a famous show called the Impression of Liu Sanjie. It was based on the local custom of the girls in the village singing to potential boyfriends across the river. The mountains in the background were lit up making for a stunning backdrop to the show. The show utilized beautiful singing, unique lighting, and rafts on the water to produce an entertaining spectacle.
The next day we took a slow peaceful rafting trip amongst the mountains on a small river. I could feel the peacefulness of the surroundings permeate my body. At times we would stop our rafts and sing songs together. Half way on the trip we stopped at a farm for lunch. The setting was magnificent with the open rice fields surrounded by the steep mountains of the area.
Our next stop on the trip was a flight to Haikou Hainan. We were given gifts of drinks, fruit, and coconut candies by the local students. As we enjoyed the Mangos and other fruit Master Ou explained that the students in Hainan had a real passion for Pangu Shengong. Even though the students in the area did not have a lot of money they gladly gave us gifts. This knowledge caused me to appreciate the fruit even further.
Later we all sang at a Karaoke bar. There were many laughs including Master Ou marching around like a Chinese soldier or the whole dance floor getting down to Michael Jackson. What I was most struck by was how sincerely Master Ou sang the songs. There was a sweetness and purity to the singing.
The next day we had lunch with hundreds of the Hainan students. I could feel Master Ou transmitting energy to everyone in the room. After singing songs and eating lunch we saw some beautiful dancing and colorful costumes. All in all we left feeling warmly accepted and could feel the passion of the people. Students from Haikou
Later we drove to Sanya and Master Ou asked us if we could sense that we had entered a new temporate zone despite being on an air conditioned bus. He told us the more that we ate the local food that the more connected to the land we would be and be more sensitive to changes.
The last few days of the trip included walks on the beach near Sanya and visiting Wuzhizhou Island. I especially loved being in the clear water of the South China Sea enjoying the waves with the other students on the trip. During one festive dinner in Sanya we convinced the waitresses to sing songs with us. Enjoying the beach in Sanya Singing "I love you, Hainan" with the waitresses
In the end I was sad to leave such a wonderful group of people but at the same time I was delighted with how much deeper my Pangu Shengong practice had become after spending 2 weeks with Master Ou. I realize that the Pangu Shengong just gets deeper as one practices and that there is really no end to the growth that it offers. I am grateful to Master Ou for his compassion and for all the help he has provided me. I would also like to thank Olivia and Ms. Yang for helping set me up on the trip. Also Jessica and Vincent were invaluable in their English translations. Finally, I would like to thank everyone on the tour for making the trip such a memorable experience.
