What is Falun Gong?
Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) is an ancient cultivation way for improving mind and body. The practice’s most visible aspects are its five gentle exercises, including a meditation. They are highly effective ways to improve health and energy. Falun Gong practitioners also study spiritual teachings, taking them as a guide for daily life. At the core of these teachings are the values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Falun Gong teaches that these are the fundamental qualities of the universe and that by assimilating into them, a person can improve both physical health and wisdom.
The practice of Falun Gong emphasizes improving heart and mind nature. This is done by applying the principals of the practice in one’s life and trying to follow them in all situations. When a person does this with dedication and determination, the results are quite powerful. People from diverse nationalities and professions who have taken up this practice have found themselves undergoing profound transformations. Forgiveness replaces anger. Calm replaces anxiety. Frustration and greed give way to a serene inner joy that endures in even the most challenging situations.
Master Li’s teachings are set forth in a number of texts, among which are included Falun Gong, Zhuan Falun, The Great Consummation Way of Falun Dafa, Essentials for Further Advancement, and Hong Yin. These and other works have been translated into thirty-eight languages, and are published and distributed worldwide.
A more complete introduction, including free downloads of Falun Dafa books and instructional videos, can be found on www.FalunDafa.org.
If desired, books can also be purchased from TianTi Books, and can often be found in bookstores, libraries, and at volunteer Falun Dafa practice sites located in parks throughout the world. Local practice site locations may be found on www.FalunDafa.org.
