Li Hongzhi, The Man who developed Falun Gong

Got this nice article here at:

As far as Li Hongzhi is concerned, he’s only answering to a calling. Trained by the masters, according to his hagiography, Li was sent to teach the people the power of Falun Gong, a type of Qi Gong that focuses on healing and has these three tenets as principles—truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance. All of his readings and teachings are available online free of charge. Perhaps, that’s what draws people to him and despite of the black propaganda drummed up against him, his organization keeps flourishing.


Falun Gong, according to their website, is:
"… a practice that can remove illnesses, keep people fit and make one live longer. Like tai chi, it's a morning exercise. People practicing Falun Gong are expected to follow the principles of truthfulness, compassion and forbearance. And they must speak truthfully, have compassion, be benevolent, be tolerant. But whether people have other faiths or not, they can all practice Falun Gong. We do not get involved in faiths. We respect all of them." (SOURCE:

These teachings appeal to many and have been the main reason why people are drawn to his organization. It’s non-denominational and they accept followers with open arms. This earned Li Hongzhi two Nobel Peace nominations, in 2000 and 2001, respectively. His books were bestsellers and have been translated to over 30 different languages.
