Circular light beings have been recorded on many photos taken at the Xuanfa Institute and while on the tour introducing the book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha to the West.

The Buddha Master has told us that some of them, at least, are Dharma Wheel Mandalas.
When a couple of students ventured into the attic of the future temple at the Xuanfa Institute, they took many photos and found that the space was packed with these magical beings. Some moved while the photo was being taken, resulting in the streaks seen here.
Other forms of light beings have also been sighted and captured on digital cameras as seen here and elsewhere on this website. Bright neon pink and intense green beams of light have been seen by several at different occasions as have other mysterious lights. A few examples are recorded on the following videos:
