What is Falun Dafa?
Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) is an ancient, high-level Chinese cultivation practice which uses gentle movements and meditation to cultivate the body, mind, and spirit. Due to the tremendous benefits it can bring to practitioners, Falun Dafa has grown to be the most popular qigong system in the world.
Falun Dafa is a complete and powerful system consisting of five simple exercises that can be performed by anyone, regardless of age, physical condition, or prior experience. Practicing Falun Dafa can relieve stress and create harmony, improve health as it cleanses the mind and body, and focuses on increasing wisdom, improving morality, and promoting spiritual growth. Falun Dafa is guided by the characteristic of the universe: Truthfulness–Benevolence–Forbearance (Zhen–Shan–Ren in Chinese).
Falun Dafa is cultivation practice. Cultivating oneself is essential; practicing the exercises supplements the process. Over time, the principles of Dafa unveil the deepest and most profound truths of the universe. Following the principles, practitioners of Falun Dafa are able to reach very high realms, enlightening to the true meanings of life, and finding the path of returning to their origins and true selves.
Falun Dafa is not a religion, although it shares some terminology and concepts with the Buddhist and Taoist religions. Falun Dafa does not have any religious rituals or formalities of worship. Nor is Falun Dafa in any way political. Falun Dafa is also not a business. Volunteers provide all classes free of charge, and all reading materials are available on the Internet, also free of charge. There are no membership fees, no regular organization or hierarchy. Falun Dafa practitioners are regular people who share the desire to improve themselves using this powerful, proven system of cultivation and self-development.
Since Falun Dafa was introduced to Florida in 1996, many Floridians have learned and benefited from the practice, and now there are practitioners and practice sites all across the state.
