Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is an ancient cultivation way for improving your mind and body. The physical aspect of the practice involves five easy-to-learn exercises, including meditation. These are highly effective ways to improve health and to de-stress. In cultivating the mind, practitioners study spiritual teachings that guide their daily lives based on the values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Falun Dafa teaches that these three principles are the fundamental qualities of the universe and that by assimilating to them, a person can elevate his or her physical health as well as wisdom.
The practice of Falun Dafa emphasizes improving your heart and mind nature by adopting the three principles in one’s life and following them in all situations. When a person does this with dedication and determination, the results are quite powerful. People from diverse nationalities and professions who have taken up this practice have found themselves undergoing profound transformations. Forgiveness replaces anger, calmness replaces anxiety, and frustration and greed give way to a serene inner joy that endures in even the most challenging situations.
