Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) is an advanced self-cultivation practice of the Buddha School. The practice’s most visible aspects are five slow and gentle exercises, including a sitting meditation. They are highly effective ways to improve health and energy. Falun Gong practitioners also study spiritual teachings, taking them as a guide for daily life. At the core of these teachings are the values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Falun Gong teaches that these are the fundamental qualities of the universe and that by assimilating into them, a person can attain both physical health and wisdom.
You can find all the texts, audio, and video for learning the practice and the teachings for free online. You can also purchase physical copies of the books, CDs, and DVDs at Tianti Bookstore, which also hosts an amazing 9-day-workshop introducing people to Falun Dafa.Learn More
First spread to the public in China in 1992, Falun Dafa quickly spread across the country. By 1999, an estimated 70 to 100 million people were practicing Falun Dafa—more than the number of Chinese Communist Party members. At this point, the Chinese Communist Party launched a nationwide persecution of the practice, imprisoning and brutally torturing hundreds of thousands of adherents. Most egregious of all, the Chinese Communist regime is harvesting the organs of living Falun Dafa practitioners to fuel China's lucrative organ transplant industry.Learn More
On campus, we hold meditation/exercise sessions, inside and outside, on the lawns or in Central Park, as well as group readings of Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa. We also hold various events to raise awareness about the ongoing persecution of Falun Dafa in China, including film screenings, tabling events on College Walk, signature drives, and our annual four-day-long poster exhibit on Low Steps.
