Also known as Falun Dafa,
Falon Gong is a form of Qigong, a system of exercises, meditations, and
teachings that renew the body and mind. Falon Gong has become popular throughout
the entire world since its introduction to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi.
The practice is simple yet profound and effective. It consists primarily
of five exercises that are easy to learn, enjoyable, relaxing and energizing.
Mr. Hongzhi’s book, Zhuan Falun, downloadable free from the
Internet, gives instructions and reveals the wisdom and concepts of Falun
A study conducted about 12 years ago in China found those who practiced
Falun Dafa for disease treatment had a 90 % healing rate with a 60 % total
cure rate., Hongzhi states, However, “Falun Dafa is not meant for
treating illnesses of others. It is to enlighten people to treasure their
lives and continually improve themselves.” He also said to Time magazine,
“… an ordinary person’s disease… the only way to
prevent it is to improve and become a non-ordinary person.” He also
tells us that the purpose of our life is to rediscover our true, original
self, therefore to rid oneself of attachments, addictions and useless patterns
that will manifest as illnesses.
The benefits of practicing Falun Dafa are immense and vary, from improved
health to newfound energy, stress relief and peace of mind. Three of the
main principles in this practice are truthfulness (to be true to yourself
and others, return to your true self), compassion (to have kindness and
consideration to all beings), and forbearance (to bear humbly the trials
and tribulations at each stage of your growth).
The Persecution In China
In 1999 a jealous and insecure Chinese dictator, Jiang Zemin, unable to
harness and control this free-flowing and widespread movement, launched
a campaign of harassment against those who practiced Falun Dafa. Since 1999,
1, 600 people have been tortured to death, over 100,000 have been detained,
25,000 have been sent to labor camps, and 1,000 have been forced into mental
institutions. This happened because these practitioners made peaceful appeals
for freedom of belief and the right to practice their faith. This is an
ongoing battle throughout the world, with many supporters from foreign lands
voicing their appeals against this unjust persecution. You can voice your
opinion too by letting people around you know what is happening to these
practitioners, and posting your opinion at various web sites that address
The Chinese government has dedicated part of its budget to undermining Falun
Dafa. Falun Dafa has been branded “an evil cult” with a massive
media campaigns undermining the value of this practice. The derogatory connotation
of this word alone is enough to put people on the defensive, and this has
proven to be an insidious weapon against this spiritual practice. More accurately,
Falun Dafa is defined as a cultivation and self-improvement practice, free
to the public, and very much the opposite of a cult.
