Falun Gong is a spiritual
practice that focuses on the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance
incorporating meditation and exercises. Falun Gong is enjoyed and respected by millions in over 40 countries
around the world.
1992 Falun Gong spread across China faster than any other spiritual teaching in
history. It was awarded and praised by the Chinese Government and media for many
years for the benefits it brought to individuals and society.
1999, a Chinese Government survey showed that, in China alone, Falun Gong had
amassed over 70 million followers in less than 7 years! After this survey
President Jiang Zemin ordered a crackdown on Falun Gong practitioners. In the
past 2 years thousands of men, women and children have been beaten and tortured
and hundreds have died in police custody.
