What is Falun Dafa?

A cultivation way for mind and body

Falun Gong, also called Falun Dafa, is based on ancient Chinese traditions of health and self-improvement. The perfectioning and refinement of mind and body is also called cultivation.

The principles of Falun Dafa

At the core of Falun Gong are the values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance (or in Chinese, Zhen 真 Shan 善 Ren 忍) and practioners take them to be a guide for daily life and practice.

“assimilation to the highest qualities of the universe—Zhen, Shan, Ren (Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance)—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.”

- Li Hongzhi, founder of Falun Dafa

The five exercises of Falun Dafa

Falun Dafa has four gentle standing exercises and a sitting meditation. These exercises are suitable for all ages, simple to learn, and are a truly unique and effective way to improve one's spiritual and physical health.
