With the publication of this book in 1993, Li Hongzhi changed the face of qigong practice in China and ultimately the world. This introductory text (a curious blend of Taoism, Buddhism, and qigong practice) systematically and clearly explains the practice of Falun Gong. The goal of Falun Gong is to encourage people in a spiritual and physical practice that improves the body, mind, and spirit. For Li Hongzhi, qigong without a strong ethical/spiritual component is of limited value. The goal for his followers is both inner and outer health. This is the core introductory text for the beginner. The main benefits are: A clear introduction to the philosophy. Step-by-step instruction in the exercises.
