  1. Zhuan Falun (Turning The Law Wheel)

    Agreed Vajra Fist. It's not easy to forebear one one hurts you physically or mentally but in Falun Dafa forbearance is one of the core tenets of the practice. Just to let people know, a new version of the book has been released with an even more accurate translation from the original Chinese: http://falundafa.org/eng/eng/pdf/Zhuan-Falun-2018.pdf
  2. Zhuan Falun (Turning The Law Wheel)

    They sure do Crazy Fox Ali, The CCP have a full propaganda campaign trying to undermine Dafa: http://en.minghui.org/cc/9/ http://www.ninecommentaries.com/english-9 Jetsun, there is ancient flower known as the udumbara flower, this flower is said to bloom only once every 3000 years. This flower is now been spotted blooming in different places around the world in this time period. They say that a flower such as this blooms only when there is a Buddha offering salvation to people on earth: "The udumbara flower is said in Buddhist legend to bloom only once every 3,000 years, the last time being before the birth of Buddha. Spotted again across the world in the past 20 years or so, some say the udumbara could herald the coming of a great sage or enlightened being." and: According to Buddhist legend, its appearance heralds the arrival of the Holy King Who Turns the Wheel, rectifying the Dharma in the world. This King is said to accept anyone of any religious affiliation, offering salvation to all through compassion. Volume 8 of the Buddhist scripture “Huilin Phonetics and Interpretation” states: “The udumbara flower is the product of propitious and supernatural phenomena; it is a celestial flower and does not exist in the mundane world. If a Tathagata or the King of the Golden Wheel appears in the human world, this flower will appear due to his great virtue and blessings.” The full article can be read here: http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/7250...-across-globe/ A newspaper article talking about finding the flower in their home: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/china/7345137/Rare-Buddhist-flower-found-under-nuns-washing-machine.html
  3. Zhuan Falun (Turning The Law Wheel)

    Mudfoot, the 9 audio lectures cover the same material that the book Zhuan Falun does. How is one to learn a high level cultivation method if it has not been imparted by a true Qi Gong master? : ) Where does it say he superimposes himself on a buddha statue? Are you referring to Law Bodies? If so it's not only in the school of Falun Dafa where they can develop Law Bodies but in every righteous high level cultivation method. Here is the excerpt from Zhuan Falun explaining it: "Why is there a field around images of Buddhas? A lot of people can’t explain it. There are some people who say, "The field around the Buddha statue comes from monks chanting scriptures in front of it," or in other words, it’s a field that’s created by monks cultivating in front of the statue. But it doesn’t matter whether it’s monks or whoever that cultivates there, that type of energy is scattered and not directional, and the field should be evenly distributed over the floor, the ceiling, and the walls of the whole temple. So why is it only the Buddha image that has such a strong field? For example, there’s usually a field on the images of Buddhas that are in remote mountains, in some cave, or carved into stone. So why is there that field? Some people explain it every which way, but still don’t come up with anything convincing. What’s going on here is that a Buddha image has the field of an Enlightened Being’s Law Body on it. The Enlightened Being’s Law Body is there, so it has energy. Now let’s think about it, isn’t it true that when Shakyamuni and Bodhisattva Guanyin did their cultivations, assuming there really were such persons, weren’t they cultivators, too? People develop Law Bodies when they reach a pretty high level in Beyond-Triple-World-Law cultivation. Law Bodies are born in the elixir field area, they’re made up of Law and gong, and they manifest in other dimensions. Law Bodies have the same enormous power that the person has, but Law Bodies’ consciousness and thoughts are controlled by his principal being. But a Law Body is also a complete, independent, and real individual life in its own right, and so it can do anything on its own. Law Bodies do the same things that the person’s master consciousness would like to do—exactly the same things. The person would do it the same way if he were to do it himself, and Law Bodies do it however he would. That’s what we mean by "Law Body." When I want to do something, like adjust the bodies of disciples who truly cultivate, I have my Law Bodies do it. Law Bodies manifest in other dimensions since they don’t have human bodies. And that being’s form isn’t fixed and unchanging. He can expand and shrink. Sometimes he becomes really large, so large that you can’t see his whole head, and sometimes he becomes really small, so small that he’s even smaller than a cell." In terms of foxes and yellow weasels and other such things, it does occur in certain Qi Gong practices. Master Li hongzhi is just warning people that they should find a righteous school of cultivation and it's not only Falun Dafa that is a righteous school, there are many others but one should be on guard when choosing his school of cultivation. An excerpt from Zhuan Falun from the section explaining Spirit Possession: "It’s not like I won’t settle for anything but your cultivating in my Falun Dafa. Actually, you can cultivate in the discipline of your choice. But there’s an ancient saying, "No true teachings for thousands of years, better than wild heresy for one day." So you really have to know what you’re doing, and really cultivate a true teaching." I'm not sure what you mean about the end of the Qi Gong boom. Before the persecution of Falun Dafa, Falun Dafa was the fastest growing and most popular qi gong practice in China's history. The only reason more people practice it in China now is because of the massive persecution that the evil Chinese government has undertaken against Falun Dafa practioners: "By 1999, Falun Gong had grown to become the largest and fastest growing practice of the sort in Chinese if not world history. In just seven years since its 1992 introduction to the public, an estimated 100 million people were practicing Falun Gong." source: http://www.faluninfo.net/topic/22/ I guess most here are aware of the persecution that Falun Dafa practitioners are facing from the evil Chinese government at the moment, for those that know about it, check this information out, it's truly heinous what they are doing to these good people: http://en.minghui.org/cc/1/
  4. Zhuan Falun (Turning The Law Wheel)

    Actually Falun Dafa is not a cult. No money is involved, it's loosely organized and people practice via their own free will. Actually it states this clearly in Zhuan Falun: excerpt 1: "Here we’re teaching you to take the right path, and along with that, we’re teaching you the Law inside and out and encouraging you to have your own understanding of it, but it’s still up to you whether you decide to learn it. "The master leads you through the door, but cultivation is up to you. Nobody’s going to push you to cultivate. It’s up to you whether you cultivate. Or to put it another way, when you choose your own path, when you decide what you want, or when you’re trying to get something—nobody will stop you. They can only try to kindly persuade you" excerpt 2: "Our Falun Dafa is one of the Buddhist system’s 84,000 disciplines. It’s never been passed on to the general public before during this period of civilization, but it did once save people on a large scale in a prehistoric age. Today I’m spreading it again widely during this final period of the kalpa’s end, so it’s just extremely precious." excerpt 3: "I’m not saying you have to learn my Falun Dafa, but I can say that what I’m doing is sharing some principles with you. If you want to cultivate you have to commit to one discipline, or else you won’t be able to cultivate one bit. Of course, if you don’t want to cultivate we’ll leave you alone. The Law is meant to be heard by people who really cultivate." Seth, there is ancient flower known as the udumbara flower, this flower is said to bloom only once every 3000 years. This flower is now been spotted blooming in different places around the world in this time period.

  5. Hi all, I've come across a fascinating book that talks about high level spiritual things from a scientific perspective. This book is intriguing as it talks about many similar things to what people in mystical states mention such as seeing into parallel dimensions and interacting with beings from other worlds etc. This book is called Zhuan Falun and it is from the Buddha Law School of Cultivation however it is not Buddhism the religion or Daoism the religion, it's something more profound. It seems to me to be more of a spiritual science as many of the terms and concepts in the book are talked about in a scientific down to earth manner instead of flowery mystical prose which I found very refreshing. Now here is where it gets interesting, this book talks about the following things: Other Dimensions - Levels Of Dimensions spanning into the microcosm and also outwards into the macrocosm The Soul - It talks about people having a Master soul and a subordinate soul which is hidden from you but is at a more advanced level then you, it states some people have more then one Subordinate soul and some are of not of the same sex as you i.e males having a female subordinate soul etc. Microcosmic worlds - This concept was very far out but it talks about there being worlds within you, countless worlds. Similar to our world with life , water, animals etc. An analogy is zooming an an atom within one of your cells and realizing at that level of magnification it is just like our solar system. Then zooming into a single particle in that world and finding out it too is a vast world, apparently the level it can go onwards like this is beyond imagination. Supernatural Abilities - In the book they mention that everyone has them it is just that they have atrophied. It goes into depth about this topic. Some abilities that are mentioned are precognition, retrocognition and remote vision. The 3rd Eye - Talks about how at the front part of our pineal gland there is a complete structure of an eye there. Modern science calls it a vestigial eye but in the cultivation world they say this eye just naturally exists like that and it can be activated allowing one to pierce through this dimension and see other dimensions. It talks about how there are many levels to this 3rd eye and it goes into great depth about it. Thoughts - This part was amazing. It talks about how a human brain is just a processing plant. How the real you is actually your soul, it's like your whole body and brain is just a vehicle and that the true commands are issued by your master soul, but this master soul is very tiny and it can switch positions while inside you and it can also expand and shrink. It can move from your brain to your heart and to other parts of your body and it is 'he' who calls the shots. Your brain is just the factory which your master soul sends his cosmic commands to which then create the forms of expression and communication we use such as speech, gestures, etc. These are just a few things that are covered but there are many many other things which blew my mind when I read it because of how it resonated with some of the mystical experiences people sometimes have, especially the multidimensional nature of reality and how all of them are hidden in our day to day perceptions of the world. If this sounds interesting to anyone you can grab a copy of the book here: http://falundafa.org/eng/eng/pdf/Zhuan-Falun-2018.pdf
