Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a
traditional Chinese qigong practice. It uses gentle movements and meditation to
cultivate the body, mind, and spirit. Due to the tremendous benefits it can
bring to practitioners, Falun Gong has grown to be the most popular qigong
system in the world.
Falun Gong is a complete and powerful system, which consists of five simple
exercises, which can be performed by anyone regardless of age, physical
condition, or prior experience. The exercises create internal harmony, thus
increasing one's energy and eliminating stress.
Falun Gong is based on the principles of Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance.
Practitioners learn to let go of negative thoughts and behaviors, and to view
all conflicts not as difficulties but as opportunities to grow.
First taught publicly in 1992
Practiced in more than 60 countries
More than 100 million practitioners in less than 10 years
Falun Gong is not a
religion, although it shares some terminology and concepts with the Buddhist
and Taoist religions. Falun Gong does not have any religious rituals or
formalities of worship. Nor is Falun Gong in any way political. Falun Gong is
also not a business. Volunteers provide all classes free of charge, and all
reading materials are available on the Internet, also free of charge. There are
no membership fees, no regular organization or hierarchy. Falun Gong
practitioners are regular people who share the desire to improve themselves
using this powerful, proven system of cultivation and self-development.
All Falun Gong Activities are Free of Charge
