The Falun Gong Portal

Falun Gong, (simplified Chinese: 法轮功traditional Chinese: 法輪功pinyin: Fǎlún Gōng; literally "Practice of the Wheel of Law") also known as Falun Dafa, (simplified Chinese: 法轮大法traditional Chinese: 法輪大法pinyin: Fǎlún dàfǎ; lit. "Great Law of the Wheel of Law") is a system of mind and body cultivation introduced by Li Hongzhi (surname is Li) to the public in 1992. Falun Gong refers to five sets of meditation exercises (four standing, and one sitting meditation) and spiritual teachings. According to Li when one cultivates his/her xinxing (mind nature or character), he/she can assimilate to the supreme nature of the universe--Truthfulness, Compassion, Forebearance. In recent years, added emphasis has been placed on the concept of Fa-Rectification.

Selected article


The foundation of Falun Dafa are teachings known in traditional Chinese culture as a "Fa" (Dharma), or "Dharma and principles" – that are set forth in the book Zhuan Falun. Falun Gong teaches that the "Buddha Law", in its highest manifestation, can be summarized in three words – Zhen 真, Shan 善 and Ren 忍, which translate approximately as 'Truthfulness (or Truth), Benevolence (or Compassion), and Forbearance (or Endurance)'. The process of cultivation is thought of to be one in which the practitioner assimilates himself or herself to Zhen 真, Shan 善 and Ren 忍.

The ideas that guide today’s science are only able to confine its development and research to this material world, as a subject won’t be studied until it is known—it takes that approach. As for phenomena that are intangible and invisible, but that objectively exist, real manifestations of those things appear here in our material world, yet they are shunned and considered unexplainable..
