(Minghui.org) We need to change a Chinese character in the following section of Teachings at the Conference in Houston.
Student: Is it okay to practice both Tai Chi and Falun Gong?
Master: No, it’s not okay. Tai Chi, Xing Yi, Ba Gua—these martial forms have qigong built into them. But practicing other martial arts doesn’t matter, be it Long Fist, Hong-style Fist, Southern Fist, Shaolin, etc.—none of them are a problem. But Tai Chi is definitely qigong.
The character Yi in “Xing Yi” needs to be changed to a different character with the same phonetic pronunciation. Xing Yi (形易, meaning “change of a form”) should now be Xing Yi (形意, meaning “meaning of a form”). Fellow practitioners, please make this correction.
