  “法轮功”邪教理论前后并不统一,存在着明显的逻辑矛盾。对“法轮功”邪教理论的代表性作品进行分析,可以明显看出,从(修订本)《中国法轮功到》《转法轮》,再到《北美巡回讲法》,最后到《九评共产党》,经历了“佛家气功”,“法轮佛法”,“三件事”,“系统反共”等四个阶段。而且强调的重点也各有不同,在“佛家气功”阶段重点在“传功”,到“法轮佛法”阶段重点转向所谓“传法”,到“三件事”阶段重点又改为“讲真相”等,到“系统反共”阶段重点则成了所谓“铲除邪恶政权”。尽管不同阶段、不同重点存在着某种交叉,但基本脉络还是清楚的。本文将循着“法轮功”邪教理论的这一演变轨迹展开论述,敬请方家批评教正。

  一、“法轮功”并非开始就是邪教,“法轮功”创始人李洪志曾经跟随气功师李卫东、于光生练习“禅密功”和“九宫八卦功”,所以“法轮功”初创乃是依托气功,用李洪志自己的话讲,“法轮功”是所谓层次较高的“佛家气功”,并且“法轮功”早期还曾在“中国气功研究会”登记,作为其直属功派。李洪志开始传功时请长春的几个人帮他搞了一本《法轮功》的小册子,内容包括“法轮功”简介、基本功法和“心性”的修炼等三部分,共约15页,6000字左右。1992年9月在此基础上又加了一些内容,取名叫《中国法轮功》,还是一本小册子,约13000字。之后, 1993年4月由“军事谊文出版社”正式出版了《中国法轮功》,内容又有较大增加,辟为四章,达到80000字。1993年12月再次由“军事谊文出版社”出版了(修订本)《中国法轮功》,内容达到84000字,按李洪志自己的话讲,只是“对内容作了一些修订,还撤掉了《法轮功章程》和《神功效果事例选登》,增加了《答疑》”,并将《法轮旋转新天地——李洪志先生和他所创立的法轮功》改为《介绍李洪志先生和他所创立的法轮功》。

  (修订本)《中国法轮功》共分五章,第一章:“概论”,主要内容论说所谓气功是史前文化,“不是我们这茬人类发明的东西”;功力是“靠‘德’这种物质转化来的,靠心性修出来的”;修炼可以“开天目”,一旦“天目”打开,就有“遥视”功能;气功治病是“从根本上去掉病的原因”,较之医院治病更胜一筹;“佛家气功”与佛教没有关系,“走的不是一条路,不是一个法门”;旁门左道、武术气功、返修与借功、宇宙语、信息附体等。第二章:“法轮功”,主要内容是论说所谓“法轮”是“宇宙的缩影”,“法轮功是佛家功”,“法轮功”是“高层次修炼”,“法轮功”的修炼特点(即所谓“法炼人”、“修炼主意识”、“炼功不讲方位、时间”、“性命双修”、“不带意念”)等。第三章:“修炼心性”,主要内容论说所谓“心性的内涵”,“失与得”,“‘真、善、忍’同修”,去掉“嫉妒心”和“执著心”,“业力”与“消业”,“炼功招魔”,“根基”与“悟性”,“清静心”等。第四章:“法轮功法”,主要内容是讲解五套功法动作要领与口诀。五套动作包括:第一套,佛展千手法,口诀:身神合一,动静随机;顶天独尊,千手佛立。第二套,法轮桩法,口诀:生慧增力,融心轻体;似妙似悟,法轮初起。第三套,贯通两极法,口诀:净化本体,法开顶底;心慈意猛,通天彻地。第四套,法轮周天法,口诀:旋法至虚,心清似玉;返本归真,悠悠似起。第五套,神通加持法,口诀:有意无意,印随机起;似空非空,动静如意。前四套属“动功”,第五套属“静功”。第五章:“答疑”,主要内容是回答“法轮功”学员围绕“法轮”、“功法”、“心性”、“天目”、“磨难”等提出的各种问题,诸如“法轮是啥样的”、“打雷能不能炼功”、“什么是大根器的人”、“天目开了是否在释放能量”、“怎样对待磨难”、“最初的人类是从那里来的”等。从这本书的主要内容,也可以看出,是在讲解“功法”与“功理”,重点放在“传功”上面。

  (修订本)李洪志在《中国法轮功》“作者的话”中说得很清楚:“我出山的目的主要是想把多年炼功不长功的人往高层次上带一带,让他们尽快开悟开慧,整体提高到高层次;同时也想把目前在气功界存在的一些不好的现象以及从另外空间来的不好的东西给以协助澄清,使正法得到弘扬,使气功事业沿着正确的道路健康发展”。且不谈李洪志“给以协助澄清”之类文法上的问题,仅就他所谓“出山的目的”来看,主要还是为促进“气功事业”的“健康发展”。李洪志在该书“第一章:概论”中也说:“气功在我国源远流长,有着悠久的历史……作为正法修炼的佛道两大家气功,已经公开了许多秘传大法。道家的修炼方法是很独特的;佛家也有自己的修炼方法。法轮功就是佛家气功的高层次修炼大法。”这段话值得注意的两个要点是:第一,佛、道两大家气功是“正法修炼”;第二,“法轮功”是“佛家气功的高层次修炼大法”。我之所以要指出这两个要点,是因为李洪志在后来的《转法轮》中完全否认了自己在这里所说的话。这一事实再次证明李洪志说话不讲信用,那怕黑纸白字,他也经常转脸变卦,矢口否认。在这本书后面以“法轮功研究会”名义写的“附录:介绍李洪志先生和他所创立的法轮功”中写道:“他(李洪志)为法轮功的创编确定了以下原则:第一,大法应该是无私的;第二,大法具有超自然的力量;第三,大法应该符合真、善、忍的特性;第四,大法应当绝对保证安全……他总结了气功发展史上的各门派之优劣,然后取其精华,将其揉合到法轮功里。”所谓“法轮功”的“无私”、“超自然力量”、“真、善、忍特性”、“绝对保证安全”等,事实早已经证明是一派谎言。我要特别强调指出的是,李洪志前面说“法轮功”是所谓高层次上的“佛家气功”,这里又说“揉合了”气功各门派的“精华”,且不论其中的矛盾,李洪志在这里仍然肯定“法轮功”是气功之一种,仍然没有否定气功,只是通过贬低一般气功,抬高“法轮功”这种高层次上的“佛家气功”而已。李洪志在《法轮大法义解》中说:“当我们第一本书《中国法轮功》写出来时和低层次的气功有些方面很雷同。第二本书就是《中国法轮功》修订本,比气功高出很多了。我现在正在整理我讲过的整个的法,将来写出来就作为指导我们真修的大法。在新书里许多名词都要纠正过来”。李洪志所讲的“新书”,就是后来的《转法轮》。李洪志在《精进要旨》之“惊醒”一文中也承认:“而《中国法轮功》包括修订本,那只是一开始以气功的方式叫人们认识的一个过程中的东西。”显然,他十分清楚(修订本)《中国法轮功》与后来的《转法轮》有根本不同,并在后来特意为之解释,以此回答“法轮功”练习者的疑惑。

  总之,无论从“法轮功”产生的背景来看,还是从《中国法轮功》(修订本)的内容,从李洪志本人的说法来看,都清楚地表明“法轮功”在这一阶段,还是从属于气功,尽管李洪志取了“佛家气功的高层次修炼大法”这个动听的名称,但作为气功之一种——“佛家气功”的本质没有改变。而且李洪志所传的重点也在“功法”与“功理”上面,尽管他打出了“性命双修”的旗帜,并且也谈到“提高心性”问题,然而重心还是放在所谓“佛家气功”的“练功”、“修命”上面。

  二、1994年12月,李洪志《转法轮》由中国广播电视出版社出版发行,约19万字。从内容上看,保留了《中国法轮功》(修订本)前三章的内容,但作了较大幅度的增、删、改,后两章被去掉。《转法轮》最值得注意的变化之一是增加了所谓的“论语”作为绪言。《转法轮》正文内容共分九讲,将“真正往高层次上带人”、“不同层次有不同层次的法”、“真、善、忍是衡量好坏人的唯一标准”提到第一讲中,突出了所谓“传法度人”的目的和“真、善、忍是宇宙根本特性”的谬说。(修订本)《中国法轮功》第一章的内容,在《转法轮》中被扩充为前三讲。《中国法轮功》(修订本)第二章的内容,除“法轮功的修炼层次”被改动置入第一讲,其余内容扩充为《转法轮》第五讲,增加了“奇门功法”、“开光”、“祝由科”等新内容。《中国法轮功》(修订本)第三章内容,加上第一章的“武术气功”、“气功治病与医院治病”等和第二章的“意念”、“法轮周天”等,经扩充成为《转法轮》的第四、第六、第七、第八、第九讲。这几讲新增加的内容比较多,譬如“灌顶”、“玄关设位”、“男女双修”、“显示心理”、“欢喜心”、“杀生问题”、“吃肉问题”、“辟谷”、“偷气”、“采气”、“气功与体育”等,都是《中国法轮功》(修订本)中所没有的。

  如果仅从上述篇目的增减变化,还看不出大的问题,更重要是看各篇目具体内容的变化,才能揭示出问题所在。“论语”是最具有本质性改变的一篇“奇文”,这篇绪言性质的文章盗用孔子《论语》之名,一改《中国转法轮》(修订本)对“法轮功”以“佛家气功”冠名的做法,改称“法轮功”为“佛法”,文中说:“‘佛法’是精深的,他是世界是上一切学说中最玄奥、超常的科学……‘佛法’是从粒子、分子到宇宙,从更小至更大,一切奥秘的洞见,无所不包,无所遗漏。他是宇宙特性‘真、善、忍’在不同层次的不同的论述,也就是道家所谓的‘道’,佛家所说的‘法’……‘佛法’可以为人类洞彻无量无际的世界。千古以来能够把人类、物质存在说清的唯有‘佛法’”。李洪志在许多场合下,贬低佛教,抬高《转法轮》。在“论语”中说:“其实‘佛法’不只是经书中的那一点,那只是‘佛法’初级层次的法”。《转法轮》中说:“佛教中的法只是佛法中的一小部分”。在《转法轮》(卷二)中,诽谤和低贬佛教的内容就更多了,譬如“佛教的论述是佛法中最弱小的一部分”、“佛教中的教训”、“禅宗是极端的”等文章就赤裸裸地对佛教进行诽谤、贬损。李洪志还将其“经文”汇编取名为《法轮佛法经文》,其中也有许多诽谤和贬低佛教的文章,如“佛法与佛教”中说:“佛教代表不了佛法的全部……是伟大的佛法造就了佛,而不是释迦牟尼造就了佛法,是释迦牟尼悟到了佛法,证悟了自己的果位……现代佛教与后期的婆罗门教还相差多少?”李洪志多次说过,后期婆罗门教已经邪变了,因此这里将现代佛教与后期婆罗门教相提并论,也就是明白告诉别人现代佛教也邪变了。其实李洪志所了解的佛教并不是真正的佛教,而是卢胜彦的“灵仙真佛宗”。卢胜彦法名莲生,自称“活佛”、“宗主”,台湾人,1971年始创“灵仙真佛宗”,上世纪80年代移居美国西雅图,著有《灵仙真佛宗》、《灵的世界》、《第三眼世界》、《灵仙飞虹法》、《大手印指归》、《灵魂的超觉》等100多种书。“灵仙真佛宗”在美、加、英、日、荷、印、新、泰、台、港等世界各地设分堂300多处,信徒据说有200多万人。李洪志往泰国探望妹妹李萍时接触了“灵仙真佛宗”,并对其中许多内容予吸收,譬如所谓的“天目”、“大手印”等,在“灵仙真佛宗”中都能找到影子。其实“灵仙真佛宗”并非正宗佛教,佛教界人士视之为“旁门左道”。尽管李洪志自己承认“不读佛经,不读藏密”,照理他对佛教没有权力说三道四,然而他却偏要信口开河,乱发议论,其实他对佛教的贬低、损毁,目的在于抬高所谓的“法轮佛法”。李洪志在《转法轮》中说:“在国内外,真正往高层次上传功,目前只有我一个人在做”。又说:“目前全世界只有我一个人在公开传正法,我做了一件前人从来没有做过的事情,而且在末法时期开了这么一个大门”。还说:“我揭示了一个千古之谜,绝对不能讲的秘中之秘,把历代修炼的各种修炼方法的根底都揭示出来了……我要度不了你,谁也度不了你。”李洪志在《法轮佛法经文》的《佛法与佛教》一文中说:“当今我再一次来世间佛法,而且直接传宇宙的根本大法”。在《大法不可窃》一文中说:“弟子们呀!我一再讲大法传给人已经是对人的最大慈悲了。这是亿万年从未有过的事呀!”李洪志在《转法轮》(卷二)的“佛教的论述是佛法最弱小的一部分”一文中说:“法轮大法是把宇宙的特性(佛法)万古以来第一次留给了人,等于给人留下了一部上天的阶梯。”李洪志在《法轮佛法——在悉尼讲法》中说:“我做了前人没有做的事,我开了一扇大门,我做了一件更大的事,就是我把所有修炼的道理、圆满的因素都讲出来了,而且讲得很系统。这就是为什么很高的神讲:你给人留下了一部上天的梯子——《转法轮》。”李洪志在《精进要旨》的《惊醒》一文中说:“这部法是宇宙的特性,是伟大的佛法的真实体现,是我修炼开悟后,记忆起我自己先天所有,又用常人的语言把他讲出来,传与你们以至天上,法正乾坤。”李洪志后来在各地的“讲法”,譬如长春、新加坡、欧洲、美国、瑞士、悉尼、新西兰等地的“讲法”,干脆全都冠以“法轮佛法”,只字不提“佛家气功”了。

  在李洪志看来,所有“法轮经”中,《转法轮》是最重要的。《法轮大法义解》中所谓“以法为师”,就是要以《转法轮》为“师”。李洪志在《转法轮》中说:“我这本书的内容是把几个班讲的法合在一起的。都是我讲的,句句都是我讲的,都是从录音带上一个字一个字扒下来的,一个字一个字抄写下来的,都是我的弟子、学员帮助我从录音中抄录下来的,然后我再一遍一遍地修改。都是我的法,我讲的就是这一个法”。李洪志在《精进要旨》中说:“就《转法轮》而言,我自己亲自修改三次后定下稿而出版的”。“这部法不只是人类这一层在学,更高层都在学,是因为很大的天体范围偏离了宇宙特性才正法的”。李洪志在《法轮大法义解》中说:“其实不管再出多少经,也都是给《转法轮》作为辅导材料的,真正指导修炼的只有《转法轮》。里边包涵着从常人开始一直到无比高的内涵,人要你修下去,《转法轮》永远都会指导你修炼提高”。李洪志在《转法轮法解》中说:“现在已经开印了第三本书《转法轮》,这就是最后指导我们修炼的这本书了”。自从《转法轮》出版后,李洪志特别强调“学法”的重要性了,当然主要还是要求学《转法轮》。李洪志在《转法轮法解》中说:“同时要掌握好这个法,我说那就得把这本书、这个法理解透,要学法。你不要光炼动作。你成天炼动作了,老师讲的啥都忘了,我说你就没法修。用什么去指导你呀?所以大家要多看书,把学法看书也像炼功一样天天去做,天天去看,才能指导你做一个好人,你心性才能修上来,功才能长上去的。”还说:“要想修炼,我说就是要把法学好,我们法轮大法的《转法轮》这本书已经出来了,整个都是我讲课的内容,完整地把他拿出来了,所以这可以作为将来在我们这一门中修炼的依据”。李洪志在《法轮佛法——在欧洲法会上讲法》中说:“一本书就是白纸黑字,翻看来我把它看一遍就知道了。当然人类社会的每一本书都是这样,它只限于表面的知识,没有什么内涵,你看完了一遍也就明白了。可是这本书不一样,他是指导人修炼的,你要想在这个法中提高,就必须不断地去看书,他才指导你修炼。”李洪志在《精进要旨》中的许多“经文”都是针对“学法”讲的,譬如《博大》、《学法》、《何为智》、《纠正》、《惊醒》、《手抄经文的处理》等。《拜师》中说:“实修者不执于求而自得,一切功,一切法尽在书中,通读大法自会得之。学者自变,反复通读已在道中。”李洪志自《转法轮》出版后,就特别强调“学法”,并将其与提高“心性”、“层次”,与“圆满”相联系,将所谓“修炼”的重心逐步从“炼功”转移到了“学法”上来,将所谓的“法”与《转法轮》划上等号,与“师”划上等号。

  三、照理说,《转法轮》出版后,一切谜底都已揭晓,不该再有新的“法”,即使李洪志要讲法,也只能在《转法轮》的框架内讲,不该有突破,不该有创新,否则就应当是“邪法”。李洪志对此1996年11月2日《在法轮大法交流会结束时的讲法》中说得很清楚:“我的法已经系统的全部交底了,该传的完全都留给你们了。而且最高的已经讲的相当高了。那么我再去讲,反复去讲就会起干扰作用……但是我告诉大家,真正使大家能够修炼的就是《转法轮》。而其他不管出多少书,都是《转法轮》的辅助,所以我们修炼一定要把住《转法轮》这本书去修”。然而随着中国政府依法对“法轮功”非法组织予以取缔,进而根据其现实表现认定其为邪教,李洪志沉默了一段时间后,又跳出来讲法,但这回讲的内容与以前不同了,提出了所谓“三件事”,即“学法”、“讲真相”、“发正念”。且让我们冷静地分析一下李洪志所谓的“三件事”是怎么出笼,又是怎么讲的。

  李洪志开始提到“三件事”,主要是2001年12月29日《在美国佛罗里达法会上的讲法》:“我想呢,就讲这么三件事。一个是大家学法的问题,一个是发正念的事,再有呢就是讲清真相这件事情是极其重要的”。在这之前,“三件事”都是分开讲的,这里则集中起来讲。而且最为关键的是所谓“讲清真相”。前边已经提到,“学法”自《转法轮》出版后一直强调,从未间断。“讲清真相”最早始于1998年7月6日的《挖根》这篇经文,其中讲到“集体向谁反映事实情况”是“法给予最低层次人类无数的生存方式中的一种”,认为“大法弟子在一个特殊的情况下,采用一下法在最低层次的这种方式”,是在“圆融法在人类这一层次的行为”,值得肯定。1999年6月13日的《安定》经文中又讲:“学员可根据所掌握的有关地区、有关部门直接或变相干扰破坏法轮功事件,把广大人民与政府对立起来,从中捞取政治资本的情况,可通过正常渠道向各级政府或国家领导人反映”。这其实就是对各地“法轮功”非法组织围攻当地政府、媒体,甚至围攻中央的违法行为的肯定。2000年7月20日的《各地大法学会》经文中说:“用和平方式向中国政府申诉我们的真实情况,这绝对没有错……一年来大家本着善心向世人、向政府讲明真相与善意申诉中,做得都很正……我也希望在今后的讲清真相与向政府申诉的同时千万别忽视学法的重要性”。同年8月的《理性》经文中要求“法轮功”修炼者要“用理智证实法、用智慧去讲清真相、用慈悲去洪法与救渡世人。”同年9月24日李洪志在《严肃的教诲》经文中用十分严厉的口气要求“大法弟子”一定要冒着危险“走出来”,“到北京证实法”,“向人民讲清真相”。在同年10月21日的《窒息邪恶》经文中李洪志说:“所有今天为证实大法讲清真相的学员做得非常好,我对这个是做了充分肯定的,他们做得绝对得对,这是无疑义的。”同年12月9日,李洪志《在北美大湖区法会上的讲法》中也花了很大篇幅讲这个问题,他说:“不论是你走到天安门去,你在其它环境向世人讲清真相,还是在国外所做的洪法、揭露邪恶的真相,都是伟大的,因为你们是一个整体。”

  “发正念”是2001年才出现的。是年元旦,李洪志发表了经文《忍无可忍》,其中说:“如果邪恶已经到了无可救无可要的地步,那就可以采用不同层次的各种方式制止、铲除。”“除尽邪恶是为了正法,而不是个人修炼问题。”这时候,李洪志还没有明确以“发正念”的方式制止和铲除“邪恶”,但是问题既然提出,总得想个好办法,于是他终于想到了“发正念”这样一个制止和铲除邪恶的办法。同年4月24日,李洪志发表了经文《大法弟子的正念是有威力的》,其中说:“邪恶在三界内以至人间被大量销毁……而整个大法在人间被迫害所出现的形式,又是因为这些学员有执著因而才有被迫害的严重情况大量出现造成的……作为一名大法弟子,为什么在承受迫害时怕邪恶之徒呢?关键是有执著心,否则就不要消极承受,时刻用正念正视恶人……其实大法弟子每个人都是有能力的,只是没在表面空间表现出来,就认为没有功能。但是无论能否在表面空间表现出来,动真念时都是威力强大的”。这是李洪志最早提到“发正念”的一篇经文。随后“明慧网”连续发表《发正念》、《再发正念》、《三发正念,根除邪恶》等文章,对“发正念”抬轿敲锣,推波助澜。当年李洪志在加拿大修炼心得交流会上的讲法发表后,许多法轮功人员都询问“发正念”的手势,是否要分男女,是否是莲花掌,结束时是否需要结印或合十。于是经李洪志同意,“明慧网”专门登李洪志“发正念”的照片,并附文说明:单手立掌统一用右手,不分男女;是否莲花掌均可;结束时不需要结印或合十。李洪志还要求从这一年的6月10日起,“全世界大法弟子将每周一次,在固定时间内共同发正念清除三界内破坏大法的邪恶”。固定的时间是每周日上午5点、6点、7点,每次5分钟。这一年的7月16日李洪志再次发表经文《正念的作用》,捏造事实,编造谎言,对法轮功人员“发正念”摇旗呐喊,鼓劲打气,他在经文中说:“目前邪教恶所能干坏事的地方是还没有被正法洪大的巨变所触及的地方,在这里正是大法弟子用正念起作用的地方”。“大家在正念除恶中确实起到了很大的作用,大量的邪恶生命被清除掉,也有的被部分清除掉,使邪恶大伤元气,在很多正法还未到的空间铲除了邪恶,对恶人也起到了消除和震慑的作用”。

  2002年4月,李洪志抛出了《北美巡回讲法》,这篇三万字的奇文,是迄今为止最系统地对“三件事”进行论述的一篇“讲法”。在其“内容摘要”中说:“当前三大任务:一要重视学法,为认识法和正法奠定基础。二要讲清真相。讲真相是使众生摆正对‘大法’的态度,实质上是在救度更多的甚至更大的其它的庞大天体与那天体中的生命。三要发正念,在正念中清除邪恶。正法之事不能由师父包办,必须由大法弟子去破除旧的法”。在正文中,李洪志说:这次讲法,“主要讲三件事情。第一个是大家要重视学法”,“第二件事情,就是我们要重视讲清真相”,“第三件事,就是你们发正念的问题”。李洪志说:“学好法对每个大法弟子是至关重要。”他一改以前所谓“学法”只是为提高“心性”、“层次”、“圆满”的说法,而将“学法”与修炼者“所代表的天体”及其中的“无数和众生”之“救渡”联系在一起,这一来,就将“学法”所代表的“个人圆满”向“救度众生”转换。李洪志特别强调的是“讲清真相”,他说:“大家要清楚讲清真相对大法弟子太重要了。你不只是个人修炼问题。你个人的修炼是在救渡着你自己所代表的庞大天体中的生命。你在讲清真相中,你在救度着更多的甚至更大的其它庞大天体与那天体中的生命,因为这是大法和历史赋予你们的责任”。李洪志同样将“讲真相”作了修改,与“救渡众生”挂上了钩。他还具体地讲了如何“讲真相”的方式,他说:“发传单哪,打电话,利用电脑网,上领馆哪,还有的通过各种媒体形式在向世人讲述着大法的真相,揭露邪恶的迫害”。谈到“发正念”,李洪志说:“发正念这件事情对我们大法弟子来讲,也是一件非常伟大的事情”。他将“发正念”作为“铲除邪恶”的最有效手段,他为此还特地讲了一段天方夜谭似的故事:“大家还记得吧,在你们刚刚开始发正念时,那些邪恶的迫害大法弟子的生命马上排着队,摆着阵势,打着鼓就来了。由于大家经过一段时间的发正念,大量清理掉了这些邪恶的因素,现在你们在正念中发出的功都得到处去找那些邪恶的东西了。大法弟子一立掌它就逃了。大法弟子能用正眼去正视恶人,恶人马上避开目光。因正念使操纵恶人的邪恶生命被吓跑了,因为它知道逃得慢一点将瞬间被大法弟子的正念清除掉。所以邪恶现在不断地向中国的邪恶中心收缩,在全世界其它地区控制人思想的邪恶因素已经在最后的清除中。”

  总之,“三件事”中除了“学法”是一直在讲的外,“讲清真相”和“发正念”都是后来讲的,尤其“发正念”是最新鲜的说法。而且“学法”与“讲清真相”的内容也与前期有了根本的改变,不再是个人“圆满”的事,而成了“救度众生”。如果说真的按李洪志所说“大法已经传出”,除《转法轮》外没有其它的“法”,那么这所谓的“三件事”显然是与《转法轮》有所不同,是否应当属于“邪法”呢?!

  四、李洪志表面上讲“不参与政治”,但是实际上法轮功邪教并未远离政治,而是越来越深地参与,越来越暴露其反动政治本质。从对新闻媒体、各级政府的围攻,到赤裸裸地发表文章叫骂,都充分说明了这一点。2000年李洪志发表了一系列所谓“经文”,公然向中国共产党叫板。是年6月28日发表的《预言参考》中说:“中共中央几个别有用心的人利用手中的权利对大法与大法弟子开始全面的邪恶镇压,抓人、打人、劳教、判刑、毁书、利用军、警、特务、外交及所有的电台、电视台、报纸,采用流氓手段铺天盖地的造谣迫害,大有天塌之势,其邪恶程度覆盖了全世界。”李洪志还在《走向圆满》、《去掉最后的执着》、《严肃的教诲》、《除恶》等所谓“经文”,以及《在美国西部法轮大法修炼心得交流会上的演讲》、《在北美大湖区法会上的讲法》等文章中,公然煽动“法轮功”修炼者要“顶着压力”,从“放下生死”中走出来,与中国共产党及其政权相对抗,也就是他所谓的“揭露邪恶”、“抑制邪恶”、“除尽邪恶”。他在2001年1月1日发表的“经文”《忍无可忍》中说:“如果邪恶已经到了无可救无可要的地步,那就可以采用不同层次的各种方法制止、铲除。”李洪志并且为“法轮功”邪教参与政治进行狡辩,他在是年6月4日发表的“经文”《不政治》中说:“那些反对邪恶政权祸国殃民的正义反抗者”,不是在搞政治,而是“救度世人”、“挽救众生”。也就是说,他不认为“法轮功”邪教所从事的反动政治活动是“参与政治”。

  如果说以前政治反动还是“犹抱琵琶半遮面”,那么2001年7月4日李洪志在《解梅花诗后三段》就干脆撕下了面纱。在这篇“经文”中,李洪志对伪称是宋代哲学家邵雍所作的《梅花诗》进行曲解附会,说什么“十年前对共产国家一方来讲,就已经是残局一盘了”,“百分之九十的国家放弃共产主义,这对共产党来讲真是大难临头”,“共产党体系解体了,但是表面却象留了一张皮一样被中国政府继承”,“只不过是中国当权者想利用共产党形式维持政权而已”,“即使最佳秋色(也是党的最后时刻)再好,秋色自然不会长久”,“中国共产党在天上的最低空间中以红色恶龙为表现形式”。在《圣经》中,“红色恶龙”又称“大红龙”,就是魔鬼撒旦。显然,李洪志已经丧心病狂地开始公然咒骂共产党了。2001年12月29日李洪志《在美国佛罗里达讲法》中说:“你说共产党要战胜法轮功,那神怎么能干呢?共产党怎么能战胜宇宙的法呢?你要跟他斗,那你就必垮”。李洪志2002年4月27日《在波士顿法会上的讲法》中更加肆无忌惮地说:“那么强大的一部国家宣传机器,在全世界到处都设有领馆,有那么大的军队,我们面对的是这么一个要镇压我们的邪恶的流氓政治集团”。李洪志2003年6月22日《在美中法会上的讲法》中更是无所顾忌地公然将矛头指向中国共产党,他说:“XX党从来没有向人民认过错”,“这政府不可怕吗?难道不需要铲除吗?”李洪志还利用历史问题做文章,他说:“中国人有一大半被XX党迫害过。在XX党政权建立之前,大家知道,有很多有钱人哪,被抄了家、分了财产,甚至被枪毙、坐牢。‘镇反’、‘三反五反’、‘肃反’、‘文化大革命’,许许多多运动中,都迫害了人数众多的中国人,所以总体上加起来呀,中国人有一半以上受过各种迫害。”最后,李洪志明目张胆地、恶狠狠地对“法轮功”练习者煽动说:“XX党政权还有存在的必要吗?你们在正法过程中如何通过自己的努力去铲除这一邪恶旧势力呢?”“我们要维护常人层次上的法,就要铲除XX党政权这个旧势力的总代表。”

  2004年11月18日至12月4日,在美国的“法轮功”报刊《大纪元》发表系列社论《九评共产党》,其篇目包括:九评之一,评共产党是什么;九评之二,评中国共产党是怎么起家的;九评之三,评中国共产党的暴政;九评之四,评共产党是反宇宙的力量;九评之五,评江泽民与中共相互利用迫害法轮功;九评之六,评中国共产党破坏民族文化;九评之七,评中国共产党的杀人历史;九评之八,评中国共产党的邪教本质;九评之九,评中国共产党的流氓本性。这是“法轮功”邪教组织迄今为止抛出的最为系统的反动政治言论,“九评”的发表更加充分暴露了法轮功的反动政治本质。大纪元的“公告”中明确说:《九评共产党》是“给为祸人间一个多世纪的国际共产主义运动,特别是中国共产党盖棺定论”。文中毫不掩饰地说:“世界共产主义运动早已被全世界所唾弃,中国共产党走入坟墓也只是一个时间问题”。文中甚至将中国共产党称之为“邪教”。文中还蛊惑说:“我们有必要全面反思和揭露这个集古今中外邪恶之大全的最大邪教组织,让仍旧被共产党政权欺骗的人们认清它十恶俱全的本质,从精神上肃清共产党的流毒,从心理上摆脱共产邪灵的控制,跳出恐惧的枷锁,放弃对共产党的一切幻想”。《九评共产党》通过歪曲事实直相、篡改历史真实、利用历史问题等各种手段,从历史的角度全面否定共产党、否定共产主义运动,对新中国建立以来的历史也全盘否定,甚至不顾现实,对改革开放辉辉成就、累累硕果也予否定。最后,还恶毒地提出了反动的政治口号:“没有了中国共产党,才能有新中国;没有了中国共产党,中国才会有希望;没有了中国共产党,正义善良的中国人民一定会重塑历史的辉煌。”大纪元还在“公告”中表示,要发表《九评共产党》的续集,并与境外“法轮功”邪教组织的其他媒体如“博大新闻网”等联合举办《九评共产党》全球有奖征文大赛。

  从《预言参考》到《九评共产党》,让我们看到李洪志及其“法轮功”邪教组织早已不再提“不参与政治”,而且逐步从为其参与政治以所谓“不政治”的狡辩,进一步发展到赤裸裸地反动政治叫骂,遮羞的面纱完全撕下来了,反动政治叫骂的水平也在实践中不断提高,从零星叫骂过渡到系统的反动理论。

Evolution of cult Falun Gong's doctrine

Thedoctrine of cult Falun Gong  is inconsistent and logically contradictory. By analyzing its typical works such as "China Falun Gong (Revised Edition)", "Zhuan Falun",  "Teaching the Fa WhileTouring North America" and "Nine Comments on CCP", it can be learnt that the doctrine of cult Falun Gong had undergone four stages, namely "Buddhist Qigong", "Falun Fofa", "three things" and "systematic anti-CCP". Focus of the doctrine was different at different stages. At the stage of "Buddhist Qigong", its focus was "spreading the Gong"; at the stage of "Falun Fofa", its focus turned to be "spreading the Fa"; at the stage of "three things", its focus shifted to "telling the truth" and things like that and; at the "systematic anti-CCP" stage, it focused on what the cult alleged as "eradicating the evil regime". Although focuses of the cult doctrine at different stage might be somewhat overlapping, the basic evolution course is quite clear. This article will therefore discuss the evolution of the doctrine of cult Falun Gong in such a clue. It is open for comments.

1. Falun Gong was not born to be cult. Li Hongzhi, founder of Falun Gong, has learnt to practice "Chanmi Gong" from Qigong master Li Weidong and "Jiugongbagua Gong" from another Qigong master Yu Guangsheng. In this sense, Falun Gong was based on Qigong, which according to Li Hongzhi, was Buddhist Qigong in the higher level. In addition, Falun Gong has registered in China Qigong Scientific Research Association as a Qigong school. In order to spread Gong, Li Hongzhi compiled a booklet "Falun Gong" with the help of others. The 15-page-booklet "Falun Gong" is about 6000 words, including three parts, namely introduction of Falun Gong, Basic ways of practicing and spiritual cultivation. In September 1992, Li Hongzhi added some more material to the booklet and renamed it "China Falun Gong". The booklet is about 13000 words. In April 1993, Li Hongzhi had "China Falun Gong" formally published by Military Yiwen Press. The book is over 80,000 words and is divided into four chapters. In December 1993, the book was republished by Military Yiwen Press with the name of "China Falun Gong (Revised Edition)" and of over 84,000 words. According to Li Hongzhi, the Revised Edition of China Falun Gong has simply revised the first edition, cut off the parts of Falun Gong Rules and Cases Manifesting the magic power of Falun Gong and added Q&As. It also changed the preface "New Realm of the Rotating Falun - Mr. Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong Founded by Him" to "An Introduction to Mr. Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong Founded by Him".

"China Falun Gong (Revised Edition)" is composed of five chapters. Chapter one is  an introduction. It mainly argued that: Qigong is prehistoric culture-it "isn't something invented by this civilization"; Gong potency "is developed through the transformation of the form of substance called virtue (de), and through cultivation of character (xin-xing); practice can help to "open the third eye" for the practitioner so that he may have remote viewing ability; Qigong healing, which "eliminates the root cause of illness", is better than medical treatment and "Buddhist Qigong" is of no relation with Buddhism-"they take different paths and they are different disciplines with different requirements". In this chapter issues such as The Side-Door Awkward Ways, Martial Arts Qigong, Reverse Cultivation and Gong Borrowing, Cosmic Language and Spirit Possession are also touched upon. Chapter two is Falun Gong. It mainly argues that: "Falun" (wheel of Law) is "a miniature of the universe"; "Falun Gong is Buddhist Gong"; Falun Gong is higher level of practicing. It further introduces the characteristics in Falun Gong practicing (the law refines the practitioner, cultivating the main consciousness, doing the exercises regardless of direction and time, cultivating both spirit and body and without motif).

Chapter three is Cultivation of Character(xin-xing). It mainly talks about the meaning of character; loss and gain; cultivating truth, kindness and tolerance simultaneously; ridding yourself of jealousy and attachments; karma and eliminating karma; practicing meddling by wicked entities; a person's underlying base and awakening capacity and; a clear and still mind. Chapter four is the Falun Gong Practice System. It mainly explains the five sets of movements and their respective verses. The five sets of movements are: 1. Buddha Stretching a Thousand Arms (verses: The Mind and Body Join Together. Move or Become Still According to the Energy Mechanisms. As Tall as Heaven and Incomparably Noble. The Thousand-Armed Buddha Stands Upright.); 2. Falun Standing Stance (verses: Wisdom is Enhanced and Powers Strengthened. The Heart is Harmonized and Body Lightened. As if in a Wondrous and Enlightened State. The Falun Begins to Rise.); 3. Coursing Between the Two Poles (verses: The Body is Purified. The Law Unlocks the Top and Bottom Energy Passages. The Heart is Kind and the Will is Strong. Reaching the Zenith of Heaven and the Nadir of Earth.); 4.Falun Cosmic Orbit (verses: The Revolving Law Reaches the Void. The Heart is Clear Like Pure Jade. Returning to Your Original, True Self. You Feel Light, as if Floating.) and; 5. Reinforcing Supernatural Powers (verses: As if With Intent, Yet Without Intent. Hand Movements Follow the Energy Mechanisms. As If Empty, Yet Not Empty. Move or Become Still With Ease.) The first four sets of movement belong to "dynamical gong" and the fifth belongs to "static gong". Chapter five is Questions and Answers. It mainly gives answers to the questions of the Falun Gong practitioners about "Falun", "Falun Gong practice system", "character", "the Third Eye" and "hardship". E.g. "What does the Wheel of Law look like?", "Can we do the exercises when it thunders?", "What is a person with 'great spiritual inclination'?", "Does an open Third Eye release energy?", "How should we deal with hardships?", "Where did the original mankind come from?" It can be concluded from the content of this book that its emphasis lies in explaining the way of practice aiming to spread the Gong.

Li Hongzhi made it clear in "China Falun Gong(revised Edition)" by saying, "Getting out of the mountain, I just want to guide those who practiced Gong for many years but without any improvement to high levels so that they may be enlightened as early as possible and guide all the practitioners to high levels; and to help to clarify the bad phenomena in the Qigong community as well as from the other space so that the righteous law can be spread and Qigong may develop soundly on the right way." Therefore we can see that Li Hongzhi's "getting out of the mountain" was to promote the "sound development" of Qigong. In the first chapter of the book, Li Hongzhi said, "In China, Qigong arts have a long history that dates back to ancient times...The two upright systems of Qigong cultivation, the Buddhist system and the Daoist system, have made public many great methods of cultivation that before were taught in private. The Daoist ways of cultivation are unique, while the Buddhist system has its cultivation methods. Falun Gong is an advanced cultivation method of the Buddhist system." In this paragraph, there are two elements that deserve our attention. For the first, both Buddhism and Taoism are "upright systems of Qigong cultivation"; for the second, "Falun Gong is an advanced cultivation method of the Buddhist system." These two elements were in fact completely denied by Li Hongzhi in his "Zhuan Falun", a book published later than "China Falun Gong". This further proves that Li Hongzhi doesn't keep his words and may deny what he said before. In the appendix of the book, the Research Society of Falun Dafa introduced Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong founded by him by saying, "he sets the following principles for the creating of Falun Gong: First, Dafa shall be self-giving; second, Dafa has supernatural power; third, Dafa shall conform to truthfulness, compassion and tolerance; fourth, Dafa shall ensure absolute security in practicing...he summarized the advantages and disadvantages of various Qigong schools in the Qigong history and then integrated their souls into Falun Gong." It has already proved that the principles-- "being self-giving", "having supernatural power", conforming to "truth, compassion and forbearance" and "ensuring absolute security in practicing"--are nothing but sheer lie. On the one hand, Li Hongzhi said in the second chapter of this book that "Falun Gong is higher level Buddhist Qigong"; on the other hand, he said here that "souls of various Qigong schools are integrated into Falun Gong". Obviously they were contradictory. Not to mention such contradictions, it could be concluded from the above-mentioned argumentation that Li Hongzhi still believed that Falun Gong was a kind of Qigong and that he didn't deny Qigong but just depreciating other Qigong schools to boast Falun Gong. In Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa, Li Hongzhi said, "When our first book, China Falun Gong, was written, its contents were in some respects similar to low-level Qigong. The second book, China Falun Gong (Revised Edition), is much superior Qigong. Now I'm organizing the entire Fa that I've taught. When it's put on paper later on, it will be the Dafa that guides our true cultivation. A lot of terms will be corrected in the new book." The new book that Li Hongzhi referred to is "Zhuan Falun". In the article "Awakening is Essential for Further Advancement", Li Hongzhi also admitted, "China Falun Gong, including its revised version, is only a transitional material in the form of Qigong for people to understand at the beginning." Li Hongzhi was certainly aware of the fact that China Falun Gong (Revised Edition) is utterly different from "Zhuan Falun". He even gave explanation to the Falun Gong practitioners the discrepancy in other books.

To sum up, although Li Hongzhi decorated it with the term of "an advanced cultivation method of the Buddhist system", Falun Gong at this stage is essentially a kind of Qigong--"Buddhist Qigong", no matter in terms of social context in which Falun Gong emerged or from the content of China Falun Gong (Revised Edition) as well as from Li Hongzhi's assertion. Besides, although Li Hongzhi advocated to "cultivate both spirit and body" and talked about "improving the character", he still focused on spreading "the way of practicing" and "the essence of practicing".

2. In December 1994, the 190,000-word book "Zhuan Falun" was published by China Broadcasting Press. The book "Zhuan Falun" cut off the last two chapters in China Falun Gong (Revised Edition) and kept the first three chapters with great modification. One of the most noticeable changes in "Zhuan Falun" is that it adds a preface "On Buddha Law (Lunyu)". Besides the preface, "Zhaun Falun" is divided into nine talks. Sections such as Truly Guiding People Up to High Levels, Different Levels Have Different Laws, One Standard Alone Determines if Someone is Good or Bad: Whether He is Able to be True, Good, and Endure are organized in the first talk, highlighting its purpose of "spreading the Fa and saving people" and the fallacy: "Truth, compassion and forbearance is the nature of the universe". The first chapter of China Falun Gong (Revised Edition) is reorganized in the third talks in "Zhuan Falun" with some expansion. As for the second chapter of China Falun Gong (Revised Edition), except that the section Levels of Cultivation in Falun Gong is organized in the first talk with certain modification, other sections are expanded and organized in the fifth talk with sections such as the Qimen Practices, Buddha Image Consecration and the Subject of Sorcery. The third chapter of China Falun Gong (Revised Edition) along with sections such as Martial Arts Qigong and Qigong Healing and Hospital Healing in Chapter Two and sections such as Thought and the Falun Cosmic Orbit in Chapter Three are reorganized in the fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth talks of Zhuan Falun respectively. Many more content are added in these talks, e.g. Buddhist Anointment, Placement of the Mysterious Pass, Male-Female Dual Cultivation, Showing Off, Being Too Engrossed, On Killing, On Eating Meat, Bigu Fasting, Stealing Qi, Gathering Qi, Qigong and Athletics.

All the above-mentioned changes cannot indicate any great changes. The more revealing fact lies in its modification in its contents. On Buddha Law is indeed a queer writing that indicates certain essential change. The preface "On Buddha Law" (the Chinese term Lunyu is in fact a piracy of The Analects of Confucius) defines Falun Gong as "Buddha Law" instead of the term "Buddhist Qigong" as in China Falun Gong (Revised Edition). It claims in the article, "Nothing is as profound as Buddha Law. Of all teachings in the world it is the most wondrous and highest science...there is nothing that Buddha Law cannot explain - it thoroughly unravels all mysteries, from those of particles and molecules to those of the universe, from small things to great things. It is a different discourse at different levels on the nature of the universe - to be True, Good, and Endure - at different levels, what Daoists call 'the Dao', or what Buddhists call 'the Law'... Buddha Law can allow people to thoroughly understand immeasurable, boundless worlds. Throughout all the ages, only one thing has been able to explain perfectly the human race, the many material dimensions that exist, all life, and the entire universe: Buddha Law." On many occasions, Li Hongzhi depreciated Buddhism in boasting "Zhuan Falun". In "On Buddha Law", he said, "Buddha Law is not limited to the little portion in scriptures, which is only Buddha Law's initial-level Law." In "Zhuan Falun", he further said, "Buddhism's Law doesn't cover the entire Buddha Law - it's just a tiny little part of Buddha Law." In "Zhuan Falun (Volume II)", there are even more words that depreciated Buddhism. For instance, "Buddhist dissertations are only one of the smallest parts of Buddha law", "Lessons from Buddhism", "Zen Goes to Extreme" and other articles directly defamed and depreciated Buddhism. Li Hongzhi even collected his "scriptures" and compiled the book "Falun Fofa Scriptures". In the book,there are many articles that defamed and depreciated Buddhism. For instance, in "the Buddha Law and Buddhism", he said, "Buddhism cannot represent the entire Buddha Law....It is the mighty Buddha Law that creates Buddhas, and not Buddha Sakyamuni that created the Buddha Law. Buddha Sakyamuni perceived the Buddha Law,enlightened up to the level of his Attainment Status...How different is modern Buddhism from Brahmanism in its later period? " Since Li Hongzhi has said on many occasions that Brahmanism in its later period tended to be a cult, here by comparing modern Buddhism to Brahmanism in its later period, he just indicated that modern Buddhism was also tend to be a cult. In fact, the kind of Buddhism that Li Hongzhi knew was not upright Buddhism but "True Buddha School" founded by Sheng-yen Lu. Sheng-yen Lu, a Taiwanese Buddhist who claimed himself as "Living Buddha Lian-shen" and "Grand Master", founded "True Buddha School" in 1971 and migrated to Seattle of US in 1980s'. He has written more than 100 books such as Ling Xian True Buddha, The World of Spirit, The world of the Third Eye, The Ling Xian Rainbow Practice, The Mahamudra Guide Book and The Super-sensory Capabilities of Souls. True Buddha School has more than 300 branches around the world with more than two million followers. When Li Hongzhi paid a visit to his sister Li Ping in Thailand, he got to know True Buddha School and assimilate from it many terms such as the "third eye" and "large hand signs". In fact, True Buddha School is not Buddhism but "side-door fringe ways" according to real Buddhists. Since Li Hongzhi himself said that he did not read Sutra, he certainly had no right to comment on Buddhism, but he just ran off at the mouth and defamed Buddhism discretionarily with an aim of boasting "Falun Fofa". Li Hongzhi said in "Zhuan Falun", "whether we're talking about inside China or abroad, I'm the only one who's really transmitting a practice that takes you to higher levels...Right now I'm the only person in the world who is publicly spreading a true teaching. I have done something that's never been done by anyone before, and I've made this available to everyone during the Age of the Law's End...I've unveiled a mystery of the ages, the secret of secrets that absolutely couldn't be told, I've revealed the inside story of all the different cultivation ways in history...If I can't save you nobody can." In the article "Buddha Law and Buddhism"(the book "Falun Fofa Lections"), Li Hongzhi said, "Now I come to the world once again to teach the Fa-- the fundamental law of the universe." In the article "Dafa Can Never be Plagiarized", he said, "My disciples! I have been repeatedly saying that imparting Dafa to human beings is already the greatest mercy to them. This is something unprecedented in billions of years!" In "Zhuan Falun (Volume II)", Li Hongzhi said, "The Teachings in Buddhism are the Weakest and Tiniest Portion of the Buddha Fa...Falun Dafa has for the first time throughout the ages provided the nature of the universe - the Buddha Fa - to human beings; this amounts to providing them a ladder to ascend to heaven." In "Falun Fofa: Teaching the Fa in Sydney", Li Hongzhi said, "I have done something nobody did in the past, and I have opened a big door. I have done something even greater. That is, I have made public all the principles of cultivation practice as well as the elements for completing cultivation. In addition, I have talked about it very systematically. This is why the gods at very high levels have said, "You have left man a ladder to heaven-- Zhuan Falun." In the article "Awakening in Essentials for Further Advancement", Li Hongzhi said, "this book of Fa represents the nature of the universe and is the true manifestation of the mighty Buddha Law. It is what I originally had - that which I recalled after attaining Enlightenment through cultivation practice. I then made it public in ordinary human language, and I taught it to you as well as to those in heavens, thereby rectifying the universe with the Fa." In many other Fa Teaching Conferences such as in Changchun, Singapore, Europe, USA, Switzerland, Sydney, New Zealand, Li Hongzhi didn't ever mention "Buddhist Qigong" but "Falun Fofa".
As for Li Hongzhi, Zhuan Falun should be the most important scripture compared with other Falun scriptures. The term "taking Fa as your master" appeared in "Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa" means taking "Zhuan Falun" as their master. In "Zhuan Falun", Li Hongzhi said, "What's inside this book of mine combines the Law I taught in several classes. All of it is my words, every sentence is my words, and they were transcribed from the tape recordings word by word, and copied down word by word. It was done with the help of my disciples and students. They transcribed my words from the recordings, and then I revised the book over and over again. All of this is my Law - what I teach is just this one Law."

In "Essentials for Further Advancement", Li Hongzhi said, "The book Zhuan Falun was finally published after three revisions made by me...This book of Fa is not only learnt by human beings. It is learnt by wider and higher existence as the universal nature is indeed departed in the greater celestial bodies." In "Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa", Li Hongzhi said, "no matter how many more scriptures we publish, they are merely supplementary materials to Zhuan Falun. Only Zhuan Falun can truly guide your cultivation. It contains inner meanings that go from the level of ordinary people to incomparable heights. As long as you continue to cultivate, Zhuan Falun will always guide your elevation in cultivation." In "Zhuan Falun Fajie", Li Hongzhi said, "Now the third book Zhuan Falun is published. It is the book that guides us cultivating." After "Zhuan Falun" was published, Li Hongzhi emphasized the importance of "studying the Fa", especially of studying "Zhuan Falun". In "Zhuan Falun Fajie", Li Hongzhi said, "At the same time, if you want to grasp this Fa well - and I would say that you have to have a thorough understanding of this book and this Fa - you need to study the Fa. You shouldn't just do the movements. If you do the movements all day and forget everything that the Teacher said, then you won't be able to cultivate. What would be there to guide you? So you should all read the book a lot, study the Fa and read the book like you do the movements daily, and read the book every day. Only then can you be guided to be a good person, only then will your character improve through cultivation, and only then will your Gong increase...If you want to cultivate, you have to study this Fa well. Our Falun Dafa's book, Zhuan Falun, has been published. It's based entirely on the content of my lectures and is presented in full. So you can rely on this book for cultivation in our school." In "Falun Fofa: Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Europe", Li Hongzhi said, "A book is simply black ink on white paper. I'll know what it's about after I read it once. Every book in human society is like that since they're limited to merely superficial knowledge and they lack any inner meaning; you know what they're about after giving them just one read. Yet this book is different, as it provides guidance for people's cultivation. If you want to improve yourselves in this Fa, you have to keep reading the book. Only then can it guide your cultivation." Many lections in "Essentials for Further Advancement" talked about "learning the Fa", e.g. "Broad and Immense", "learning the Fa", "what is wisdom", "Correction", "Awakening" and "Handling Handwritten Copies of Scriptures". In "Seeking Discipleship with Teacher", Li Hongzhi said, "A person who truly cultivates will gain things naturally without pursuing them. All of the Gong and Fa lie in the book, and one will naturally obtain them by reading Dafa. Those who learn it will change automatically, and they will already immerse in the Dao when they read the book over and over again.

3. After the book "Zhuan Falun" was published, everything should have been clear and there should not be new "Fa". Li Hongzhi should therefore teach the Fa within the frame of "Zhuan Falun" and any new doctrines should be regarded as "evil Fa"--just as Li Hongzhi himself said in "Teaching the Fa at the Close of the Falun Dafa Conference", "I have already taught you My Fa thoroughly and in-depth. If I go on teaching, it will not do any help but interference...but I just want to tell you all that 'Zhuan Falun' can really help you in your cultivating. Other books are just complementary to 'Zhuan Falun'. Therefore we should cultivate in the guidance of the book 'Zhuan Falun'. " Since the Chinese government had banned on Falun Gong and judged it as a cult based on the facts, Li Hongzhi had kept silent for a period of time. But some time later, he started to preach the Fa. The Fa that Li Hongzhi preached this time however, is different from the previously ones. This time he proposed "three things", namely "studying the Fa", "telling the truth" and "sending forth righteous thoughts". Now let's analyze how Li Hongzhi carried out his "three things" and what he said about them.

The first time when Li Hongzhi began to talk about the "three things" is on December 29, 2001 on "Teaching Fa at the  Fa Conference in Florida, USA", on which occasion he said, "I think these three things are all I'll talk about. One is your Fa-study, one is sending forth righteous thoughts, and the other is about why clarifying the truth is extremely important." Before that, the "three things" have been mentioned on certain occasions. This time, Li Hongzhi talked about all of the three things in detail with a focus on "telling the truth". As mentioned above, "studying the Fa" has been highlighted on any possible occasion since the publishing of "Zhuan Falun". "Telling the truth" was first mentioned in the lection  "Digging out the Root" that was published on July 6, 1996, in which Li Hongzhi said that "collectively presenting facts to someone" is "one of the numerous forms of existence that Dafa gives to mankind at the lowest level", considering that "under extremely special circumstances, however, Dafa disciples adopted that approach from the Fa at the lowest level is an act that harmonized the Fa at the level of mankind" which should be recognized. In the lection  "Stability" that was published on June 13, 1999, Li Hongzhi said, "With regard to the information the students have on how the relevant regions or the relevant departments have directly or covertly interfered with and disrupted Falun Gong students' practicing, and with regard to the situation in which some people used their power to stir up a Falun Gong 'incident', to put a broad segment of the people and government in opposition to one another, and to thereby gain politically, the students can report these cases through the normal channels to different levels of the government or to the country's leaders." In fact, by saying that Li Hongzhi affirmed and supported Falun Gong members illegal besiegement of  local governments, media and even central government. In the lection "Local Dafa Societies" that was published on July 20, 2000, Li Hongzhi said, "it is certainly upright to appeal to the Chinese government our real situation in peaceful means...In one year's time, you have done nothing wrong in telling the people and the government the truth and appealing to them...I hope that in the future you shall not ignore the importance of studying Fa during the time you tell the truth and appeal to the government." In the lection "Sense" that was published in August 2000, Li Hongzhi asked the Falun Gong practitioners to "validate the Fa with sense; clarify the truth with wisdom and; spread the Fa and save people in mercy." In the lection "Serious Edification" that was published in September 24, 2000, Li Hongzhi asked the "Dafa disciples" in very severe tone to "get out", "validate the Fa in Beijing" and "clarify the truth among the people" regardless of the danger. In the lection "Suffocate the Evil" that was published in October 21, 2000, Li Hongzhi said, "All of the students who are clarifying the truth today in order to validate Dafa have done really well. I have thoroughly affirmed this."

"What they have done is absolutely correct--there's no doubt about this." On December 9, 2000, Li Hongzhi delivered "Teaching the Fa at the Great Lakes Fa Conference in North America", in the lection, Li Hongzhi talked about "telling the truth" in details. He said, "Whether your going to Tiananmen, your clarifying the truth to people in other environments, or your spreading the Fa and exposing the truth about the evil to people outside China, it's all magnificent, because you are one entity."

It was in 2001 that "Sending righteous thought" appeared. In the New-Year's day, 2001, Li Honngzhi published a lection "Beyond the Limits of Forbearance". In this lection, he said, "If the evil has already been beyond redemption, then various measures at different levels can be used to stop it and eradicate it...Eradicating the evil is for rectifying the Fa instead of merely an issue on cultivation." At that time, Li Hongzhi didn't indicate to stop and eradicate "evil" by means of "sending forth righteous thoughts". Since the problem was pointed out, Li Hongzhi had to arrive at a good solution. Finally he got an idea of stopping and eradicating the evil by means of "sending forth righteous thoughts". On April 24, 2001, Li Hongzhi published a lection "Dafa Disciples' Righteous Thoughts are Powerful". In this lection, Li Hongzhi said, "The evil beings are being destroyed in large numbers in the Three Realms and the human world...And the overall situation that has appeared, in which Dafa is persecuted in the human world, is caused by the large-scale, severe occurrence of these students being persecuted because they have attachments...Why should you, a Dafa disciple, fear the evil ones when enduring persecution? The crux of the matter is that you have attachments. If not, do not endure passively, and face the evil people with righteous thoughts at all times...Actually, every Dafa disciple has abilities. It's just that the abilities do not manifest in the surface dimension, so they think that they don't have supernormal abilities. But no matter whether they can manifest in the surface dimension or not, when a person's True Thoughts come forth they are very powerful." This is the first lection of Li Hongzhi that mentioned "sending for the righteous thoughts". Later, Minghui Net published articles such as Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts, Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts Again, Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts for the Third Time, and Eradicating the Evil to fuel the ridiculous "sending forth righteous thought". When Li Hongzhi's book "Teaching the Fa in the Canadian Fa Conference" was published, many Falun Gong practitioners asked about the gesture of "sending forth righteous thoughts", whether there was any difference between male practitioners and female practitioners, whether they should use lotus flower palm and whether they should put the palms together when the process was over. With the approval of Li Hongzhi, Minghui Net published a photo about Li Hongzhi "sending forth righteous thoughts" and explained: single up palm with the right hand; no difference between male practitioners and female practitioners; no restriction on lotus flower palm; no need to put the palms together when the process was over. Li Hongzhi further required that since June 10 that year "Dafa disciples around the world should collectively send forth righteous thoughts once a week in the set time to eradicate the evils in the three realms that disrupted Dafa." The set time is at 5, 6 and 7 o'clock on each Sunday for five minutes. On July 16, 2001, Li Hongzhi published the lection "The Effect of Righteous Thoughts". In this lection, Li Hongzhi fabricated many stories to encourage the Falun Gong practitioners "sending forth righteous thoughts".He said, "At present, the places where the evil is able to do bad things, though, are places that have not been reached by the Fa-rectification's massive changing-force. These are exactly the places where Dafa disciples' righteous thoughts take effect...The effect you've had eliminating the evil with righteous thoughts is truly significant. A great number of evil beings have been eliminated, and some have been partially eliminated. This has knocked the life out of them, has eradicated the evil in many dimensions not yet reached by the Fa-rectification, and has had the effect of eliminating and frightening the evil persons."

In April 2002, Li Hongzhi delivered  "Teaching the Fa while Touring North America",in which he systematically explained on "the three things" . In its summary, Li Hongzhi said, "At present there are three major tasks: the first one is to give priority to Fa-study so as to better understand Fa and rectify Fa; the second one is telling the truth so as to have the public better understand Dafa; the third one is sending righteous thoughts so as to eradicate the evil by means of righteous thoughts. The task of rectifying Fa should not be done all by the Master as the Dafa disciples must act to destroy the old Fa as well. " In this lection, Li Hongzhi said, "I'll mainly talk about three things. The first one is that everyone should make a priority of Fa-study...The second thing is that we need to make a priority of clarifying the truth... The third thing is your sending forth righteous thoughts." Li Hongzhi added, "It is extremely important for every Dafa disciple to study the Fa well." Here he changed his previous assertion that "studying the Fa" are just for the aim of improving "the character", "level" and for "consummation", and relating "studying Fa" with "the celestial body" represented by the practitioner and saving the people in the celestial body. In this way, "personal consummation" in "studying the Fa" was diverted to "saving the people". What Li Hongzhi emphasized in this lection is "clarifying the truth", saying "You need to know that clarifying the truth is extremely important for Dafa disciples. You aren't just doing personal cultivation--your own cultivation is saving the beings in the gigantic cosmic bodies that you represent. When you clarify the truth you are saving even more and even larger additional cosmic bodies and the beings in those cosmic bodies, because this is the responsibility Dafa and history have bestowed upon you." Li Hongzhi modified his assertion on "telling the truth" as well to make it related to "saving the people". He further talked about the ways of "telling the truth", saying, "passing out flyers, making phone calls, using the Internet, going to the consulates, and using all different forms of media to tell the world's people the truth about Dafa and to expose the evil's persecution." About "sending forth righteous thoughts", Li Hongzhi said, "Sending forth righteous thoughts is another really magnificent thing for our Dafa disciples." He regarded "sending forth righteous thoughts" as the most effective means of "eradicating the evil", for which he fabricated a story, "Remember when you first started to send forth righteous thoughts? Those evil beings that were persecuting Dafa disciples came over immediately, lining up in formation and beating their drums. Through sending forth righteous thoughts for a period of time, you have cleaned out large quantities of those evil factors. Now when you send forth righteous thoughts, your Gong has to search all over for those evil things. As soon as Dafa disciples hold their palms erect they flee. Dafa disciples are able to righteously look the evil people straight in the eyes, and the evil people immediately try to avoid eye contact. That's because the righteous thoughts scare off the evil beings that manipulate the evil people, since they know that if they flee just a bit too slowly they'll be instantly eliminated by Dafa disciples' righteous thoughts. That's why the evil is now constantly contracting itself around where the evil is concentrated in China. The evil factors that are controlling people's minds in other parts of the world are in the final stage of being eliminated."

In a word, among the three things, "Studying Fa" has being often talked about, while "clarifying the truth" and "sending forth righteous thoughts" was newly created. In addition, content of "studying Fa" and "clarifying the truth" has been changed fundamentally--from personal "consummation" to "save the people". If "Dafa has already been taught"--just as Li Hongzhi claimed, there should not be any other Fa except for "Zhuan Falun". Does "the three things", that are obviously different from "Zhuan Falun", the "evil Fa"?!

4. While Li Hongzhi said that he "would not get involved in politics",but the cult Falun Gong didn't keep it away from politics. In Fact it got more and more deeply involved in politics and increasingly displayed its retroactive nature, which could be fully manifested in their activities ranging from besieging news media and government bodies to publicly publishing articles cursing others. In 2000, Li Hongzhi published a series of "lections" denouncing CCP overtly. In the article "In Reference to a Prophecy" that was published on June 28, 2000, Li Hongzhi said, "a few people with ulterior motives in the Central Committee of the CCP using their power to initiate a comprehensive, vicious suppression of Dafa and Dafa disciples. They have arrested people, beaten people, sent people to labor camps, sentenced people to jail, and destroyed the books; they have used the army, the police, secret agents, and diplomatic means; and they have used all radio stations, television stations, and the press to spread lies and carry out the persecution in a villainous fashion. Its overwhelming magnitude seems to threaten and bring down the heavens, while their evilness has spread throughout the entire world." In the lections such as Towards Consummation, Eliminating Your Last Attachments, Sober Edification, Eliminating the Evil, and articles such as Speech at the Western U.S. Fa Conference and Teaching the Fa at the Great Lakes Fa Conference in North America, Li Hongzhi overtly instigated Falun Gong practitioners to act against CCP and its governments despite the pressure and the concept of life and death--to "disclose the evil", "restrain the evil" and "eliminate the evil". In the lection "Beyond the Limits of Forbearance" that was published on January 1, 2001, Li Hongzhi said, "If the evil has already been beyond redemption, then various measures at different levels can be used to stop it and eradicate it." Li Hongzi also argued for Falun Gong's getting involved in politics. In the lection "No Politics" that was published on June 4, 2001, Li Hongzhi said, "as for those upright resisters who are against evil regimes wrecking the country and ruining the people, they are not for politics but saving the people of this world" and "saving sentient beings". By this, he meant that the retroactive political activities conducted by the Falun Gong cult were not "political".

In  "Deciphering the Last Three Stanzas of the Plum Blossom Poem" that was published on July 4, 2001, Li Hongzhi took off the mask that covered their retroactive political activities. In this lection, Li Hongzhi misinterpreted the Plum Blossom Poem, saying "Ten years ago, the game had already come to the point of defeat for the side of the wicked communist regimes...Ninety percent of its countries abandoned the evil communism. And that truly spelled imminent disaster for the evil Communist Party... The communist system has disintegrated, but on the surface its skin remains, and the Chinese government has inherited it... Their specific purpose is to use the superficial form of the malevolent CCP to keep hold of power...No matter how beautiful the 'best autumn scenery' is (which is also the party's final moment), autumn scenery naturally doesn't last long"..."In the lowest dimension of the heavens, CCP 'manifests as an evil red dragon..." In Bible, red dragon refers to Satan. In this lection, Li Hongzhi overtly cursed CCP.

In "Teaching Fa at the Fa Conference in Florida U.S.A.", that was published on December 29, 2001, Li Hongzhi said, "You said that that Party has to defeat Falun Gong. But how could Gods allow that? How could the CCP defeat the Law of the cosmos? If you fight with it, you will collapse." In "Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston" that was published on April 27, 2002, Li Hongzhi said, "They have such a powerful state propaganda machine, they have consulates all over the world, and they have such an enormous army. What we face is an evil political gang of scoundrels like that who want to suppress us." In "Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Midwest--U.S. Fa Conference" that was published on June 22, 2003, Li Hongzhi ran riot in denouncing CCP, saying, "The Party has never admitted any of its faults to the people...Isn't the government awful? Shouldn't the government be eradicated?" Li Hongzhi went on his absurd argumentation by using the historic issues, saying, "Half of the Chinese people have been persecuted by the Party. Before the Party's political power was established, as you know, a lot of wealthy people had their homes ransacked and their property divided up, and they were even executed or sent off to prison. The 'Campaign to Suppress Counterrevolutionaries', the 'Three Oppositions and Five Oppositions', the 'Campaign to Eliminate Counterrevolutionaries', the 'Cultural Revolution'--it persecuted a great number of Chinese people in these many movements. So when it's all added up, more than half of the Chinese people have been subject to various forms of persecution." Finally, Li Hongzhi brazenly and ferociously instigated the Falun Gong practitioners by saying, "Is there any reason for the party and its regime to exist? How should you eradicate such an evil old force with your own efforts? We shall eradicate party and its regime-- the general representative of the old forces if we hope to maintain our Fa."

From November 18 to December 4 in 2004, US based Falun Gong medium Epoch Times published a series of editorial "Nine Comments on CCP", including the first comment--What is CCP; the second comment--how did CCP rose up; the third comment--on CCP's despotic rule; the fourth comment--on CCP's force in counter against the universe; the fifth comment--Jiang Zemin and CCP using each other in prosecuting Falun Gong; the sixth comment--on CCP disrupting national culture; the seventh comment--on the history of CPP's slaughter; the eighth comment--on the cult nature of CCP and; the ninth comment--on the ganger's nature of CCP. Nine Comments on CCP is the most systematic retroactive political argumentation delivered by the Falun Gong cult organization. It more exhaustedly revealed the retroactive political nature of Falun Gong. Epoch Times clearly stated in its "announcement", "Nine Comments on CCP is a final judgment on international communism movement that has endangered the world for more than one century and in particular the Chinese Communist Party." The article stated overtly, "the global communist movement has long been spurned worldwide and CCP's going to its tomb is just an issue of time." The article even judged CCP as "cult", it instigated, "we need to comprehensively reflect and reveal the biggest cult organization that bears all evils in the world and through out the history, so that people that are still deceived by CCP can recognize its evil nature, clear CCP's baneful influence on their spirit, cast off the control of CCP over them psychologically and finally abandon their fantasy over CCP." By means such as distorting the real fact, tampering with the history and making use of historical issues, "Nine Comments on CCP" completely denied CCP and communist movement in a historic view. It even denied the history since China's liberation, especially the brilliant achievement and flourish China has made since the reforming and opening up. In conclusion, the article proposed its retroactive political slogan, "only if there is no CCP, there will be a new China; only if there is no CCP, there will be some hope for China; if there is no CCP, righteous and kind Chinese people will certainly restore historic refulgence." Epoch Times even indicated in its "announcement" that it would publish sequel of Nine Comments on CCP. It has also jointly held global article contest about Nine Comments on CCP with other media such as Boxun Net as well.

From "In Reference to a Prophecy" to "Nine Comments on CCP", Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong cult organization abandoned their assertion of "no politics". They gradually developed from chicanery for their involving in politics in betraying their assertion of no politics to overtly having retroactive political denouncing and cursing. As their masks was taken off, their retroactive political barking got improved and developed from fragmentary barking to systematical retroactive theory.
