What Is Falun Gong & Why The Chinese Government Fears Them

“Falun Gong is an ancient Chinese spiritual discipline in the Buddhist tradition. Pronounced "Fah-loon Gong," it consists of moral teachings, a meditation, and four gentle exercises that are a truly unique and highly effective way to improve your health and energy levels. 

At the core of Falun Gong are the values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance (or in Chinese, Zhen 真 Shan 善 Ren 忍). Falun Dafa teaches that these are the most fundamental qualities of the universe, and takes them to be a guide for daily life and practice.”

In the words of Falun Gong's founder, Mr. Li Hongzhi, "assimilation to the highest qualities of the universe—Zhen 真 Shan 善 Ren 忍 —is the foundation of practice. Practice is guided by these supreme qualities, and based on the very laws which underlie the development of the cosmos."

“What is Falun Gong, or Falun Dafa as it's also known? And why is Falun Gong being persecuted in China? On this episode of China Uncensored, I'll answer these questions for you. In 1999, former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin turned the Communist Party against 100 million Chinese people and began a persecution that lasts to this day. With roots in Buddhist and Daoist thought and philosophy, Falun Gong founder Li Hongzhi's meditation qigong practice grew to become a major force in Chinese society.”
