At the heart of Falun Gong are the values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance (or in Chinese, Zhen 真 Shan 善 Ren 忍). Falun Dafa teaches that these are the essential nature of the universe and takes them to be a guide for everyday life and application.
In 1998, to ascertain the health effects of Falun Gong, a survey was carried out among Falun Gong practitioners in five districts in Beijing, with 12,731 bona-fide questionnaires. The results show that Falun Gong’s recovery rate from disease is 99.1% with a cure rate of 58.5%; Improvement rate is 80.3% in physical health and 96.5% in mental health . The study indicates that Falun Gong has a significant effect in disease healing and health elevation. Falun Gong is an excellent Qi-gong practice that assists people both physically and mentally.
The health and wellness benefits of Falun Gong have been experienced by people around the world, while the practice continues to grow in 114 countries. It has been welcomed by governments. But yet, in China where it was presented to the public in 1992, it has been cruelly persecuted .
In July 1999, Falun Gong became public enemy number one in China. A paranoid dictator's fear of Falun Gong's exponential growth resulted in acute jealousy of Falun Gong’s popularity . Since the beginning of the suppression, many practitioners have been sent to ‘reform through labour’ camps, where they are subject to extreme food deprivation, beaten, and tormented with electric batons. By 2008, there were over 3,000 documented cases of practitioners who were killed as a result of the state-run persecution . Increasingly, solid proof suggests many more, at least 60,000 until several years ago, have been targetedas involuntary donors of kidneys, livers, and hearts.
To understand the severity of this situation, let me give a small example: Imagine you practiced yoga in India and one fine day you were captured and put into jail for practicing it. Then you were tortured and forced to stop practicing. Then, when you refused to stop since it has given you only good things, you were put through more torture and denied meeting with your family members, who did not know where you were. No court would take your case. You were put through physical and mental harassment and then subjected to the worst crime of all: Your organs, having been tissue typed, were forcibly extracted from your body, to be sold at a high price to wealthy Chinese or overseas patients. You die from this process. And this was all done by the government of your own country. This is sadly happening in China right now to Falun Gong practitioners, whose only crime is an adherence to the principles of truthfulness, compassion and tolerance.
Please help raise understanding about this brutal torture and genocide among your family and friends.
