Master's videotaped lectures had been played for the public through a TV station in Hawaii for months and therefore many people were familiar with Master's teachings and many wanted to be initiated into the Quan Yin Method. Learning that Master was coming to give a lecture, they were overjoyed.
Two lectures were held in Honolulu. Audience members from all walks of life packed the venue. Half the audience consisted of Westerners. The other half included Asian Americans. The humor in Master's opening remarks was followed by Her shedding light on how enlightenment can lead to a happy life. In simple terms She brought Her profound insights to the hearts of the audience members. Her grace and wit repeatedly elicited applause and laughter.
