Those who really have predestined relationships and can be enlightened will come one after another, entering the Dao and obtaining the Fa. They will distinguish the righteous from the evil, obtain true teachings, lighten their bodies, enhance their wisdom, enrich their hearts, and board the boat of the Fa, sailing smoothly. How wonderful! Strive forward with every effort until Consummation. – Enlightenment, FALUN DAFA (ESSENTIALS FOR FURTHER ADVANCEMENT ) (English Version)

A: Falun Dafa is also called Falun Gong. It was originated by Master Li Hongzhi and taught publicly in 1992.

A：Falun Gong is not a religion. There are no temples, churches, initiation ceremonies such as precepts or baptisms. People with other religious beliefs, as you learn more about Falun Dafa, you will gradually know how to straighten the relationship and keep practicing.
Q: Falun Gong is so good, why is it forbidden to learn in mainland China ?
In the early days of its spread, Falun Gong was supported deeply by the Chinese government. At the “Oriental Health Eexposition ” in Beijing in December 1993, Mr. Li Hongzhi was the qigong master who won the most awards.
Before 1999, the Chinese media made many positive and objective reports about Falun Gong. Even the CPC’s official media CCTV also reported that the director of the General Administration of Sports went to Changchun to inspect the grand occasion of people practicing Falun Gong to get rid of diseases and keep healthy .
Just because Falun Gong is so good and the number of practitioner is increasing day by day, Jiang Zemin forbade practicing it. According to statistics from the Chinese Ministry of Public Security, in early 1999, there were 70 to 100 million people practicing Falun Gong in mainland China, far exceeding the 60 million members of the CPC at that time. In 1999, six of the seven members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee disagreed with the suppression, but out of jealousy, Jiang Zemin insisted on going his own way, substituting power for the law, and launched this bloody persecution.

Q: Where is Master Li Hongzhi now ?
Before the Chinese government persecuted Falun Gong, Master Li Hongzhi was invited to give lectures abroad, and later lived in the United States.
Regarding the unreasonable persecution of Falun Gong, he once offered to talk to the top leaders of the CPC, but the other party didn’t accept it. The CPC persecutes the people without respecting the law. Master Li has to guide Dafa disciples around the world to practice. Tt’s unnecessary for him to return to China to be a victim.
Facing the CPC’s slander, and brutal suppression of Falun Gong, Master Li still instructs Dafa disciples to clarify the truth peacefully and not in extreme ways. From 2000 to 2003, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize consecutively.
