Why Are There So Many People Practicing Falun Gong?
Why are there so many people practicing Falun Gong? Since its introduction to the public in 1992, Falun Gong has never been advertised in the media. Instead, people have learned Falun Gong from others, one heart touching another, relatives telling others, friends telling friends, parents learning it and asking their children to learn it too. From the north to south, inside and outside the great wall, and from the cities to the rural villages, you can find Falun Gong practice sites everywhere in China. Beginning in 1995, Mr. Li Hongzhi spread his teachings abroad, and by July 20th, 1999, within just seven short years, Falun Gong practitioners have spread into over fifty countries worldwide with more than one hundred million Falun Gong practitioners worldwide. "Zhen-Shan-Ren" (Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance) is the Buddha's Fa and is an advanced science. Therefore it is very powerful and has the power to spread around China and the whole world rapidly. Presently the book, Zhuan Falun, has been translated into more than twenty languages and has been welcomed in over fifty countries.
The members of the Chinese ruling Party and the majority of Chinese people used to believe in materialism. Is it possible for those Chinese people to easily believe in something else? No matter who they are, all sentient beings will eventually have illnesses. Suffering from illnesses, people will go to see Western doctors, Chinese doctors, use alternative treatments, physical exercises, and so on to cure them. These methods cannot cure some uncommon illnesses and some caused by old age; moreover, medicines only provide some relief and have side effects. Physical exercises can only increase one's resistance to small illnesses, but not big illnesses. The majority of Qigong practices can improve physical health and fitness. Falun Gong is known to have powerful effects in healing illnesses. If one believes in "Zhen-Shan-Ren" (Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance) and Dafa, emphasizes one's moral standards, raises one's xinxing (moral character, heart-nature) level, and joins group Fa-study and exercise, one's illnesses will frequently go away. It is said, "If you use your heart to believe something, miracles will happen," meaning true belief with determination. It will not work to practice Falun Gong only to heal one's illness without emphasizing one's moral standard. Because they have learned Dafa and have become healthier and better persons, would anyone give up their practice? The government authorities do all in their power to control people but they can't control their minds and hearts. Falun Gong is good for everyone, and all governments will benefit from it. Jiang's regime uses all of its brutal methods and policies to slander and suppress Falun Gong, truly acting as an evil regime.
Whether you believe in God or Buddha, you can acknowledge the reality that Qigong can improve health and fitness. Although modern science has yet to discover it, as a supernormal science, Qigong can also develop one's supernormal abilities.
Falun Dafa is the Buddha Fa. Whoever cherishes Dafa is cherishing themselves.
