Why People Practice Falun Dafa

In almost every corner of the globe you can find people of all ages and from all walks of life practicing Falun Dafa. The vast majority of them experience significant improvements in many areas of their lives, including personal feelings, relationships, job satisfaction, and health. In living by the principles of Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance (the principles of Falun Dafa, also expressed in English as Truth-Compassion-Forbearance) many people have discovered a positive state of being they had never before imagined possible.

A published collection of short articles, Hearts and Minds Uplifted, describes the tremendous personal growth that can be achieved by cultivating one’s character through practicing Falun Gong. The accounts presented in this volume represent only a tiny fraction of those who have benefited from letting go of their attachments and elevating their hearts and minds, giving them renewed lives of spiritual and physical well-being.

We invite you to read their stories to discover for yourself why so many people practice Falun Dafa.

Hearts and Minds Uplifted–The Power of Falun Dafa

In spite of intensive truth-clarification efforts by practitioners over the last seven years, many people in Western society still only think of Falun Gong as a form of exercise, or as a group that is being persecuted in China. Important components of the practice–for example, the emphasis placed on elevating one’s xinxing, or character–have not been widely disseminated and are not very well understood by the general population. We believe that if more people can come to understand at a deeper level the many ways in which Falun Gong benefits both individuals and society, they will also become more supportive, and in the process benefit their own future as well.

The forty-eight articles chosen for Hearts and Minds Uplifted were carefully selected after reviewing hundreds of personal cultivation stories that have been published on Clearwisdom.net since 1999. There is great diversity among the authors, which in itself illustrates how Falun Gong has spread throughout the world and is benefiting people of all ages, all nationalities, and all walks of life. In the process of telling their stories, the practitioners also quite naturally convey many Fa principles in terms that non-practitioners can understand and accept.

In 2005, Clearwisdom published Life and Hope Renewed–The Healing Power of Falun Dafa, which contained first hand accounts of how people’s serious, life-threatening illnesses disappeared after practicing Falun Gong. Together, Life and Hope Renewed and Hearts and Minds Uplifted form an effective tool with which to clarify the truth in Western society, particularly to influential people in the media, government, and other non-governmental organizations.
