  [主要内容]  法轮功组织的发展演变有没有一个相对清晰的过程?答案应是肯定的。笔者认为,这个组织的发展演变可以归纳为四个阶段。但是,在第二、第三阶段的时间化分上,以及第二、第三阶段的表述上,各位同仁尚有不同的观点。笔者抛砖,权作一管之见。

  [关键词]  法轮功  组织  演变


  法轮功的理论,前后论述并不统一,存在着诸多明显的错误和逻辑矛盾。对法轮功组织及法轮功理论的代表作进行全面分析,可以明显看出,从《中国法轮功》(含《中国法轮功》修订本),到《转法轮》,到《走向圆满》、《忍无可忍》、《去掉最后的执著》、《严肃的教诲》、《北美巡回讲法》,再到《九评共产党》和《再论政治》,法轮功组织历经了“气功组织阶段”、“邪教组织形成阶段”、“非法组织阶段”、“反动政治组织”等四个阶段。

  一、气功组织阶段(1992年—1994年),借传授气功之名,行聚敛钱财之实。

  法轮功组织起初并非是邪教组织。法轮功的创始人李洪志,曾跟随气功师李卫东、于光生学练“禅密功”和“九宫八卦功”,法轮功的初创乃是依托气功,用李洪志自己的话讲,他传的就是“气功”,是所谓层次较高的“佛家气功”。1992—1993年,法轮功在“中国气功科学研究会”进行了注册登记,并作为“中国气功科学研究会”的直属功派。

  1992年,李洪志开始传功时,请了长春的几个人帮他搞了一本名叫《法轮功》的小册子,内容包括法轮功简介、基本功法和心性修炼三个部分,共15页,约6000字。1992年9月,李洪志又在《法轮功》的基础上,增加了一些内容,取名《中国法轮功》,还是一本小册子,约13000字。 1993年4月,李洪志对《中国法轮功》作了较大改动后,交“军事译文出版社”正式出版,全书分为四章,达80000余字。1993年12月,此书再由“军事译文出版社”出版,称作《中国法轮功》(修订本),内容达84000余字,按李洪志自己的话说: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》”等内容,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》。从书名的变化以及法轮功组织初期的作为,人们不难看出,李洪志这时还是着重于传“功”,只是他不承认自己所传的是一般的气功,而是取了一个好听的名字——“佛家气功”,自说自话为高层次的“功”。

  《中国法轮功》(修订本)共分五章,第一章:概论。主要论述: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(“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。主要说明:“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。主要讲解五套功法动作要领与口诀。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。主要回答法轮功学员提出的各种问题,诸如“法轮是啥样的”、“打雷能不能炼功”、“什么是大根器之人”、“天目开了是否在释放能量”、“怎样对待磨难”、“最初的人类是从哪里来的”等。从《中国法轮功》(修订本)的内容分布上来看,这时的法轮功还是在讲解“功法”与“功理”,法轮功组织的工作重点放在“传功”上。

  李洪志为什么要搞法轮功?我们上述已有交代,即当时气功热的时代背景,以及赚了大把银子的“气功大师”,还有李洪志家庭的经济拮据。这个问题,人们只要看看李洪志1998年《在新加坡法会上讲法》,就再清楚不过了:“过去我在中国传法的时候,中国正好处于改革开放时期。我有一个感觉:人的思想在向经济发展这种状态转化,那么就在这个时候我把这个东西讲出来。”这段话其一讲出了时代背景,即中国正处于改革开放时期;其二讲出了当时人们(自然也包括李洪志本人啦)的思想现状,即思想向经济方面转化,一切向钱看的现状;其三讲出了他讲出一个“东西”,即法轮功这个东西,或者说这个东西就叫法轮功!从这三点可以明显看出,在改革开放和气功热的时代背景下,在一切以经济为中心、一切向钱看的催化下,李洪志难耐寂寞和银子的诱惑,终于想出并抛出了一个东西——法轮功!这在从前他是根本没想起来的!

  然而李洪志在他的《中国法轮功》(修订本)“作者的话”中,却非要给自己一个“体面”的包装:“我出山的目的主要是想把多年练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。”可惜啊,假如李洪志传出这个“东西”(就是法轮功)不能赚钱的话,我想他早就不会再讲、再传啦!

  这里大家也要客观地分析一下李洪志本人在一些说法上的前后变化。李洪志在《中国法轮功》(修订本)第一章的“概论”中说:“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”。这里要注意两点:第一,李洪志肯定佛、道两大家气功是“正法修炼”;第二,李洪志肯定法轮功是“佛家气功的高层次修炼大法”。然而,李洪志在日后的《转法轮》中,又否认了自己的说法。即使黑纸白字,李洪志也经常转脸变卦、矢口否认。

  在《中国法轮功》(修订本)后面,以“法轮功研究会”名义撰写的“附录:介绍李洪志先生和他所创立的法轮功”中道:“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”。法轮功的“无私”、“超自然力量”、“真、善、忍特性”、“绝对保证安全”等,这些早已被事实证明是一派谎言。需要强调的是,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,有一点应当肯定,李洪志承认他的法轮功是一种气功,而且还是“揉合了”气功各门派的“精华”的“杂功”!而且还想通过贬低其他气功,来抬高自己的法轮功。李洪志在后来《精进要旨》的“惊醒”一文中承认:“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《中国法轮功》(修订本)与后来的《转法轮》有着本质的不同,他要逐步借以扫除法轮功信徒的疑惑。

  总之,从法轮功产生的历史背景,从《中国法轮功》(修订本)的主要内容,从李洪志本人的一些说法来看,都清楚表明法轮功在这一阶段,还属于气功,法轮功组织,还属于气功组织。尽管李洪志给自己的法轮功套上了“佛家气功的高层次修炼大法”这么动听的名字,但其作为气功的一种——“佛家气功”的本质没有变。而且,当初李洪志传授的重点也在“功法”与“功理”上,尽管他打出了“性命双修”的旗号,也谈到“提高心性”的问题,但重心还是在“佛家气功”的“练功”与“修命”上。

  二、邪教组织形成阶段(1995年—1996年),借气功传播邪法,行邪教控制手段。

  1994年12月,李洪志的《转法轮》由中国广播电视出版社公开出版发行,全书约19万字。《转法轮》的内容,对《中国法轮功》(修订本)作了较大幅度的增加、删减、改动。最值得注意的变化是增加了开篇的“论语”和尾部的“小传”。可以说,以《转法轮》的“论语”和“小传”的问世为标志,《转法轮》至此带上一股妖气,法轮功从此变为邪法,法轮功组织从此蜕变为邪教组织。

  《转法轮》正文共分九讲,将《中国法轮功》(修订本)中的“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”提到了《转法轮》的第一讲中,突出了李洪志的所谓“传法度人”的目的和“真、善、忍是宇宙根本特性”的谬说。而《中国法轮功》(修订本)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”被改动置入第一讲外,其余内容扩充为《转法轮》的第五讲,并增加了“奇门功法”、“开光”、“祝由科”等新内容。《中国法轮功》(修订本)的第三章内容,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,经扩充变成了《转法轮》的第四、第六、第七、第八、第九讲。这五讲中新增加的内容较多,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。

  如果从《转法轮》尾部“小传”上细细分析,这时的李洪志已不能称其为人了,完全是个“非人”。如果从《转法轮》“论语”的内容上去看,李洪志盗用孔子《论语》之名,一改《中国转法轮》(修订本)对法轮功冠以“佛家气功”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’”。李洪志在诸多场合,贬低佛教,抬高《转法轮》,他“论语”中又称:“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,李洪志诽谤和低贬佛教的内容更多,如:“佛教的论述是佛法中最弱小的一部分”,《转法轮》(卷二)中的“佛教中的教训”、“禅宗是极端的”等文还赤裸裸地对佛教进行诽谤、贬损。李洪志还将他的“讲法”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?”李洪志自己也多次说过,后期婆罗门教已经邪变了,他这里将现代佛教与后期婆罗门教相提并论,就是明明白白告诉人们:现代佛教也邪变了。

  其实,李洪志自己所了解的佛教,也并非是真正意义上的佛教,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,早年修习道教,后来改信基督教,之后又改信佛教,尤重密教,1971年始创“灵仙真佛宗”,二十世纪80年代移居美国西雅图,著有《灵仙真佛宗》、《灵的世界》、《第三只眼世界》、《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,据说信徒有200多万之众。李洪志在前往泰国探望妹妹李萍时,接触了“灵仙真佛宗”,对其中许多内容予以吸收,法轮功的“天目”、“大手印”等,都能在“灵仙真佛宗”中找到影子。其实,“灵仙真佛宗”并非正宗的佛教,许多佛教界人士视其为“旁门左道”。李洪志自己承认他“不读佛经,不读藏密”,照理没权力对佛教说三道四,然而,他却偏要信口开河、乱发议论。其实,李洪志对佛教的贬低、损毁,目的在于抬高他的“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”。又称:“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《精进要旨一》中的“佛法与佛教”一文中还说:“当今我再一次来世间传法,而且是直接传宇宙的根本大法”;在“大法不可窃”一文中又说:“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!”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》。”李洪志在后来各地的“讲法”,如长春、新加坡、欧洲、美国、瑞士、悉尼等,干脆全都冠以“法轮佛法”,只字不提“佛家气功”了。

  从李洪志对法轮功的称谓变化上,人们不难看出以下轨迹:法轮功—→中国法轮功—→转法轮—→大圆满法—→法轮大法—→法轮佛法—→宇宙大法。真是越吹越大了!

  这个时期的李洪志,腰包渐鼓,逐步尝到了“传功”带来的巨额利润。因此,要想继续获取更丰厚的利益,他就必须牢牢控制一帮或更多地控制一群信众,成为他忠实的走卒,沦为他个人利益的来源和利润榨取的对象!那么,怎样才能做到控制住这群信徒呢?最简便的方法之一,就是通过吹嘘和神化自我,持续不断地向信徒灌输一些理念,同时排斥其他信息、渐渐封闭自我、丧失比较能力,逐步改变信徒的正常认知,让信徒形成他李洪志个人所需要的思维定势和认知模式,也就是形成法轮功式思维,使信徒成为他李洪志的传声筒和代言人,变成他李洪志的嘴、手、腿,从而完成操控步骤,达到操控信徒为他所用的目的。因此,吹嘘和神化自我倒不是李洪志的真实目的,而是为他达到操控信徒、实施精神控制目的的一种手段。所以,李洪志在他的“讲法”中,就多次、反复、喋喋不休、不厌其烦地向信徒们强调学习《转法轮》的重要性。

  ——“要把学法看书作为每天必修之课。”(1994年4月20日《对法轮大法辅导站的要求》)

  ——“这段时间我在家里,一直在长春,所以对长春的情况掌握得比较多一些,你比如说,现在长春掀起一个学法热,怎么个学法热呢?现在在其它地区,把炼动作当做是很重要的。当然它是很重要的,性命双修的功法,当然是必不可少的。可是在长春,他们把这个法摆到更重要的位置上去学。所以他们坚持每天炼完功之后,坐在那儿就开始念书、开始学法。学完了之后大家还要讨论,逐段的讨论。后来呢,他们又发展成背书,他们觉得这样好的东西(当然这是学员讲的话,这不是我讲的),过去有许多经书没有谈得很明确,都是谈得很含糊,人们都把它背下来了。当然还讲了其他的说法。我就说这个意思,说这样好的东西我们为什么不把他背下来呢?时时刻刻要求我们在常人中能做个好人,能提高,你背下来不就更好吗?时时刻刻都有对照。这样一来就掀起了一个背书热。

  现在长春能有上万人在背书,他们现在学法形成一个什么情况呢?就是坐在那儿开始学,不用书,他从头开始背书,停下,另一个接着背,一点都不会差的,一个字不错的接着背。然后你背一段,他背一段,这样接着背。后来又发展成抄书。如果抄错一个字,就全部重来,全部重新抄。目地是什么呢?就是加深对法的理解和认识,这样对学员的提高非常有好处。因为他已经在思想当中有那么深的印象了,他在行动中每当做什么事情的时候,他都能够用炼功人的标准来要求自己,真是不一样。

  以前我没有这样要求我们学员。就是刚才讲了,在各地都总结了一些其它经验都很好。我也跟长春辅导站讲,我说你们的经验应该向全国推广。这些学员自从这样学法以后提高得非常快,层次提高得也非常快,那是必然的。可能我们好多人,因为我们炼功嘛,在座的大家都是辅导员,我可以深谈一谈,都没关系的。我的书中每一个字,在浅层次上看是一个法轮;在深层次上看那就是我的法身,连偏旁部首都是单个的,经过你的嘴念出来的时候,那也是不一样的。好多人已经修炼出很不错的功,念出的字都是有形象的,嘴里出来的都是法轮。就是说这本书不是一般的书,当然层次不够的还是不行。能够使你念书学法的本身就是在提高,因为我们重在心性修炼,从理性上认识他本身也是提高。”(1994《在北京法轮大法辅导员会议上的建议》)[注意:李洪志对法轮功信徒如何看书学法的要求是进一步明确了,对《转法轮》的神化更离奇了]

  ——“希望大家在今后能够掀起一个学法热。不要把每天炼功看得比学法还重要,我们每天炼功要坚持,每天学法也同样要坚持。真正掌握好这个法,才能够指导你修炼的。”(1994《在北京法轮大法辅导员会议上的建议》)

  ——“我们有个别地区的负责人,不看书不学法,而且说一看法就头痛,这不是明摆着有魔干扰而自己又不想摆脱控制吗?”(《精进要旨一》“猛击一掌”)[注意:不看书、不学法、说看法头疼的,都是受魔干扰和受魔控制的。你要不想受魔的干扰和控制,就赶快拼命看书学法吧。尤其要记住,看书学法千万不能说自己头疼,否则你就不是什么东西了]

  ——“有的人是抱着各种各样目地进来的,经过学法大部分人能改变初期的学法目地。”(《精进要旨一》“和时间对话”)[注意,经过学法确实有人改变了正常思维,逐步形成法轮功思维,这正是李洪志所需要的。在这他是不打自招了]

  ——“不需要在集体学法时占用大量时间讨论了,那么就应该用大量的时间来学法,尽快提高,思想中装的越多变化越快。”(《精进要旨一》“溶于法中”)[注意:大脑中法轮功的东西装得越多,正常人的东西自然就装得越少,形成法轮功的思维定势自然就越快]

  ——“一定要把心用在学法上,看书学法,看书学法。我几乎在每次讲法中我都在不厌其烦的在叫你们看书、看书、看书。你们只要看书,你们就会得到你们想像不到更好的东西。”(1998《在欧洲法会上讲法》)

  ——“看书学法这是第一位的,这是从本质上真正能够改变你的保证,能够升华的根本原因所在。炼功是圆满的辅助手段。你不要把炼功变成第一位的看书变成第二位的,这不行,绝对的不行,你达不到那个境界。”(1998《在新加坡法会上讲法》)

  ——有法轮功学员问:“我们每周组织三次通读《转法轮》,没时间切磋,这样好不好?”李洪志答:“可以,占用那么多时间切磋什么呀?通读,时间都用在学法上。”(1998《在新加坡法会上讲法》)

  ——有法轮功学员问:“有人认为少讨论多学法,就是连续朗读《转法轮》等,我觉得这是片面的理解。”李洪志答:“其实就应该多读多看法。那么我们读累了,大家停下来休息休息也谈谈自己的收获,这是没有关系的。但是我告诉大家,你不能谈论法好与不好。那么更多的时间不要浪费在谈你自己,要多看法,多看书,是不是这样啊?一个人就像一个容器,装进去什么就是什么,你装进的法,就同化了法;你装进了土,那就是土。”(1998《在新加坡法会上讲法》)[注意,不能谈论法好与不好,就是不能对法轮功进行评价和质疑。当人们的大脑对事物丧失了质疑的批判精神后,那脑袋可真成了容器了,装进去什么就是什么,装进去垃圾就是垃圾桶,装进去邪教就是邪教徒]

  ——“通读是主要的。我们不要学一段,停下来,开始大家议论议论,再来一段,再议论议论,这不好。要大量的通读。在谈自己、谈认识的时候要不能多于读法,学法是最主要的。”(1998《在长春辅导员法会上讲法》)

  ——有法轮功学员问:“在家通读《转法轮》的进度和集体学法时学的进度不同,对修炼有影响吗?”李洪志答:“认真学都不影响。我告诉大家,你们看《转法轮》,你就从头到尾这样看。说你今天没看完明天接着这地方再往下看,再没看完接着这个地方下一次再往下看,就这样看,不要挑着看。最忌讳的就是第一次看《转法轮》的人,抱着人的观念衡量法:噢,这个地方讲得好,那个地方好象是我有点怀疑。那么整本书他都会白看,什么都得不到,这太可惜了!因为法是严肃的一本天法,人,他都不知道他有多大的业力,他都不知道他的思想从哪里来。他在用人的思想衡量这么一部法,所以他就什么都看不到。什么观念都没有,就拿起这本书去看,看完了之后你再去衡量他怎么样,你不要在看的过程中你去衡量他好和坏。(1999《在美国东部法会上讲法》)[注意:李洪志要求大家在看《转法轮》的时候,就是要解除思想武装,做到囫囵吞枣,不挑、不拣、不思考,更别说什么分析、判断和推理了]

  ——“大家知道我在任何一个地方和学员见面呢,都要讲一个问题,就是叫大家要多看书,多学法。”(1999《在澳大利亚法会上讲法》)

  ——“再艰苦的环境、再忙的情况下,都不能忘了学法,一定要学法,因为那是你们提高最根本最根本的保证。”(2001《在美国佛罗里达法会上的讲法》)

  ——“我告诉大家多学法、学法、学法、学法呀。”(2004《芝加哥法会讲法》)

  可以看出,李洪志强调“学法”的重要性是多么不厌其烦啊!当然,上面列出的只是李洪志“讲法”中的一部分,更多重复的内容这里已作删减。自《转法轮》出版后,李洪志就一再强调“学法”的重要性,将其与提高“心性”、“层次”、“圆满”等挂上钩,目的就是要通过不断地、反复地、大剂量地、无批判地“学法”,将法轮功信徒的正常认知改变,逐步置换成法轮功式思维,为日后完成精神控制做好前期铺垫。因此,这度时期的法轮功,传播的就是邪法教义,行事目的从聚敛钱财转向精神控制,这个组织已是名副其实的邪教组织了。

  三、非法组织阶段(1997年—1999年),借精神控制手段,行扩张邪教之势力。

  客观地说,早在1996年,法轮功组织就已经是非法组织了,法轮功的出版物,就已经是非法出版物了。理由如下:

  第一,1996年下半年,中国气功科学研究会作出决定,将中国气功科学研究会法轮功分会,开除出中国气功研究会。但是,早在中国气功科学研究会作出开除“中国气功科学研究会法轮功分会”的决定前,法轮功组织未经任何批准、未经履行任何手续,就已经以“法轮大法研究会”的名义四处张扬活动了。而在“中国气功科学研究会法轮功分会”被开除后,法轮功组织不仅没有自行解散,反而继续以未经依法登记注册的“法轮大法研究会”的名义发号司令、四处招摇!也就是说,至少从1996年起,“法轮大法研究会”的任何活动就已经是非法的了!直到国家取缔法轮功前,“法轮大法研究会”还是没有履行合法的登记注册手续。这在1998年12月25日,李洪志写给《北京老学员》的一封信中,也明确无误地表明了这个问题:“如果不能够独立注册,那就还象原来一样。”

  第二,1996年下半年,中华人民共和国新闻出版署作出了查禁法轮功有关书籍的决定。1996年7月24日,中华人民共和国新闻出版署发出了《关于立即收缴封存〈中国法轮功〉等五种书的通知》,决定对《中国法轮功》(军事谊文出版社出版)、《转法轮》(中国广播电视出版社出版)、《转法轮(卷二)》(中国世界语出版社出版)、《法轮大法义解》(长春出版社出版)、《神通大法——李洪志和中国法轮功》(沈阳出版社出版)等书立即予以收缴、封存,不得继续销售。1996年8月16日,中华人民共和国新闻出版署决定,对华龄出版社出版的繁体竖排16开精装本《转法轮》予以收缴查处。1998年6月5日,中华人民共和国新闻出版署同意广东省新闻出版局对花城出版社出版的《法轮佛法》进行查禁处理。1999年5月10日,中华人民共和国新闻出版署对吉林教育音像出版社出版的《李洪志济南讲法》录音带、录像带,黑龙江音像出版社出版的《大圆满法——功法教学》等音像制品、电子出版物作出了查禁处理。1999年6月1日,中华人民共和国新闻出版署同意青海省新闻出版局对青海人民出版社出卖书号、违规出版的《转法轮法解》、《法轮佛法——在悉尼讲法》、《法轮佛法——在欧洲法会上讲法》、《法轮佛法——在北美首届法会上讲法》等书进行查禁处理。

  虽然李洪志在1994年底1995年初就已经跑到美国,暂且抛开法轮功理论的正确与否问题不谈,退一万步来讲,就是在法轮功组织登记注册和法轮功出版物刊印发行等问题上,李洪志永远也是难脱其咎的!

  在这个阶段里,李洪志要求弟子们做的主要任务就是“学法”与“弘法”。这里我们试举几例,看看李洪志对法轮功信徒的“弘法”要求:

  ——“说到弘扬,现在有一个错误的认识。有人说:老师讲了要抓紧实修,那么他就理解成了什么都不干了,他就抓紧实修。……主要是在我们法的弘扬上你们没有重视起来,你们得到了法,还有没得到法的人哪。……所以,弘法的重要性大家也要认识到。这个问题我就讲这么多。”(《在北美首届法会上讲法》,1998年3月29、30日于纽约)。

  ——“交流会对我们学员的提高和促进作用是能够有很大好处的,同时也能弘法,这种形式非常好。……法会能起弘法和促进作用,也确有人通过法会得法的。”(《在北美首届法会上讲法》,1998年3月29、30日于纽约)

  ——“弘法就是度人。”(《在广州讲法答疑》)

  ——“我当年传法的时候,我在办学习班,其实就是在培养大法的精英。今天这件事情都是你们在做,在常人中证实大法,甚至我们新学员也变成了老学员,也都在做弘法的事情,叫更多的人得法。”(《在新西兰法会上讲法》1999年5月8日)

  ——“我们总讲弘法弘法,叫更多人得法。你们想过没有,我们众多人的炼功场面就是最好的弘法。你为什么不去支持它一下呢?圆容它一下呢?”(《在新加坡法会上讲法》1998年8月22、23日)

  ——“大法弘传的方式可是主流就两种方式:一个是我们书店里有书,有炼功点儿,法身带着他去找;一个是通过法会和我们学员自己的感受讲给亲人。主要是这两种方式来的人比较多,质量高。那么至于采取其他方式,不管是东方、西方的,我看主要就是这两种方式。我们初期在许多地区人们对法轮功还没有认识,那么我们把他介绍给别人,采取报纸或者杂志之类的,写一篇文章这样做,当然也是在弘法,这一点是肯定的了。”(《在瑞士法会上讲法》1998年9月4、5日于日内瓦)

  ——“弘法对你来说就那么不想做吗?大家知道,大家在修炼中修善,看见人在难中就想帮其得法,这是你们修炼中逐渐要具备的东西。给别人什么东西都不如给人法好。……所以我觉得把法介绍给别人那本身就是弘法,就是好事。”(《在美国西部法会上讲法》1999年2月21、22日于洛杉矶)

  如此看来,这个时期的李洪志是迫切地希望弟子们大力“弘法”的了。如果仅仅从经济角度考虑,此时的李洪志并不缺钱,何况还会有人继续为他“赞助”呢?那么,另一个动因就是为了扩张势力了。只要弟子们不停地“弘法”,来学练法轮功的就会越多,李洪志就完全可以借助精神控制手段,使一批人身陷其中;等到相信和痴迷法轮功的人越来越多了,李洪志再振臂一呼,那感觉、那形态、那情势,就绝不会等同过去了!可以说,这个时期,恰恰是李洪志借精神控制的手段,行扩张邪教势力的时期。

  四、反动政治组织阶段(2000年至今),借“讲清真相”之名,行推翻政权之实。

  1999年7月,中国政府依法取缔了法轮功非法组织。从此,法轮功的邪教本性愈加暴露无疑!直至完全、彻底地撕下了“不参与政治”的遮羞面纱!

  1999年7月,中国政府依法对法轮功非法组织予以取缔,后来又根据法轮功的种种行为表现,认定其为邪教。应该说,这完全出乎法轮功组织和李洪志之流的预料,给了他们一个闷棍!李洪志在沉默了近半年的时间后,终于缓过神来,又迫不及待地跳到台前“讲法”了。但是,李洪志这时讲的内容,就与以前大不相同了!从2000年6月16日的《走向圆满》,到2000年8月12日的《去掉最后的执著》,后到2000年9月26日的《严肃的教诲》(2000年9月27日作了修改),再到2001年1月1日的《忍无可忍》,李洪志的“讲法”在一步一步地加码,“讲法”的中心话题在一步一步地加快转移。到2001年底,李洪志提出了所谓的“三件事”:即“学法”、“讲真相”、“发正念”。

  第一,提出“三件事”。

  李洪志系统地提出“三件事”,主要是在2001年12月29日《在美国佛罗里达法会上的讲法》上:“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”的问题都是分开讲的,到这里时则集中起来讲了。而且最为关键的就是这个所谓的“讲清真相”。前边我们已经提到,“学法”自《转法轮》出来后,李洪志一直在强调,从未间断。“讲清真相”最早始于1998年7月6日的《挖根》,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,李洪志在《安定》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组织非法围攻当地政府、媒体,甚至围攻中央政府的违法行为的支持与肯定。

  2000年8月,李洪志在《理性》中要求法轮功信徒要“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”。2000年9月李洪志在《严肃的教诲》中用十分严厉的口吻要求“大法弟子”必须“走出来”,“到北京证实法”,“向人民讲清真相”。2000年10月,李洪志又在《窒息邪恶》中说:“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”。2000年12月,李洪志又《在北美大湖区法会上的讲法》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《忍无可忍》,其中说:“除尽邪恶是为了正法,而不是个人修炼问题”。2001年4月24日,李洪志发表了《大法弟子的正念是有威力的》,其中说:“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,对“发正念”抬轿敲锣,推波助澜。许多法轮功信徒纷纷询问“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”专门刊登了李洪志“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》,他系统地对“三件事”问题,进行了一番论述。其在“内容摘要”中声称:“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,李洪志强调: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“学法”只是为了提高“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“救度无数众生”联系起来,从这里开始,李洪志完成了他的把“学法”所代表的“个人圆满”转向“救渡众生”转换。在《北美巡回讲法》中,李洪志还特别强调了“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,你在救渡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,把它与“救渡众生”也挂上了钩。文中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”。

  总之,在法轮功的“三件事”中,除了“学法”是李洪志一直在强调的外,“讲真相”和“发正念”都是李洪志后来加进来的。而“发正念”则是人们见到的最古老又最新鲜的说法(说它古老是人们在我们祖先的巫术中时时可以耳闻到,说它新鲜是因为时下人们早已将它淡忘了)。而且“学法”与“讲真相”的内涵较之过去,也有了根本性的转变,它们不再是法轮功信徒个人“圆满”的责任,倒成了“救渡众生”的义务了。

  第二,抛出政治纲领。

  李洪志表面上讲“不参与政治”,但实际上法轮功是越来越深地参与政治,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,到赤裸裸地叫骂,都充分说明了这一点。2000年以来,李洪志发表了一系列“经文”,公然向中共叫板。2000年6月28日李洪志在《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”。后来,李洪志又在《走向圆满》、《去掉最后的执着》、《严肃的教诲》、《除恶》、《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》等文中,公然煽动法轮功信要“顶着压力”从“放下生死”中走出来,与中国共产党及其政权对抗,也就是所谓的“揭露邪恶”、“抑制邪恶”、“除尽邪恶”。李洪志在2001年1月1日的《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”。

  同时,李洪志还为法轮功参与政治进行狡辩,2001年6月4日李洪志在《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,李洪志不认为法轮功所从事的反动政治活动是“参与政治”!

  如果说法轮功以前的政治本质还是“犹抱琵琶半遮面”,那么到2001年7月4日《解梅花诗后三段》的出笼,李洪志就干脆撕下了面纱。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赤膊上阵了。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”。2002年4月27日李洪志《在波士顿法会上的讲法》更加肆无忌惮:“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”。2003年6月22日李洪志《在美中法会上的讲法》更是无所顾忌:“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?”李洪志甚至还利用历史问题做文章:“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、恶狠狠地对法轮功信徒煽动说:“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》发表了系列社论《九评共产党》。这是法轮功组织迄今为止抛出的最为系统的反动政治言论,更加充分地暴露了法轮功的反动政治本质。《大纪元》在它的“公告”中表示,《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”,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》通过歪曲事实真相、篡改历史真实、利用历史问题等各种手段,企图从所谓历史的角度全面否定共产党、全盘否定共产主义运动,否定新中国成立以来的历史成就。最后,还恶毒地提出了反动政治口号及政治纲领:“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,及所谓的“五评”,并与境外法轮功组织的其他媒体如“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》,我们看到李洪志及其法轮功组织早已不再是“不参与政治”,而是从为其参与政治进行所谓的“不政治”狡辩,发展到赤裸裸地打出反动政治旗子,彻底撕毁了用以遮羞的“不政治”面纱,政治叫骂不断升级,甚至从零星叫骂过渡到系统的反动政治纲领。这里不难看出,法轮功正是借助“讲清真相”之名,打着“不参与政治”、“不政治”的幌子,干着推翻中国政府和中国共产党的勾当!

  2007年2月21日,李洪志的《再论政治》又浮出水面:“如果‘政治’能够揭露迫害,‘政治’能够制止迫害,‘政治’能够帮助讲清真相,‘政治’能够救度众生,那这所谓的‘政治’有如此的好处,何乐而不为之呢?”“那就堂堂正正的利用这‘政治’揭露迫害、救度众生吧!”从这里人们不难看出,李洪志及其法轮功组织搞所谓的“修炼”已经腻烦了,现在他们要利用“政治”,大搞特搞他们的邪教政治了!估计今后他们连邪教也没兴趣搞了,就该直接搞政治了!

Evolution and outlook of Falun Gong

Here is the article "Evolution and outlook of Falun Gong" written by Shi Chuan. It tells the readers about Falun Gong's yesterday, today and tomorrow.

1. Falun Gong followers in Mainland China and their current activities

Since the Chinese government declared banning on Falun Gong on July 22, 1999, Falun Gong practitioners suddenly disappeared from our eyesight, while reverberation from the Internet has been overwhelming. As I am curious about its truth, I manage to get in touch with many Falun Gong practitioners. At the same time, I pay more attention to reaction from Falun Gong media such as Epoch Times, NTDTV, Minghui Net and Boxun News. After a careful study on activities of Falun Gong and articles and lections written by Li Hongzhi, I get some idea about Falun Gong followers in Mainland China.

What are Falun Gong followers in Mainland China?

It is observed that many of the Falun Gong followers in Mainland China were from the vulnerable groups who were critical to the enlarged social gap between the poor and the rich and the unfair social allocation. Since they were weak, they needed to make themselves strong, and some of them practiced Falun Gong for believing that Falun Gong could cure diseases without much cost. A few of the Falun Gong followers were of other motivations. When Chinese government proclaimed that Falun Gong was a cult organization against the government and against human, most practitioners abandoned Falun Gong voluntarily and some stopped practicing reluctantly because of the high-handed policy in Mainland China since the banning on Falun Gong. Nowadays there are few Falun Gong followers who still insist on practicing, most of which have been dissatisfied with the government and the society, or have been punished (including legal punishment and administrative punishment) by Chinese authority. That is to say, they are hostile to Chinese government. I have also found that those who still obsess in Falun Gong but have no resentment to Chinese government are mostly mentally disordered. Therefore in Mainland China, there are few Falun Gong followers still practicing Falun Gong.

State of cult Falun Gong since July 1999:

After 7 years "fighting" against Falun Gong since its banning, Falun Gong is already in a state of disunity now. Falun Gong followers in Mainland China seem to have ceased their activities as there are only occasional reports about Falun Gong followers being arrested by Chinese government for illegal propaganda in certain places. It is generally believed that Falun Gong has no influence in Mainland China. From media report I've learnt that Falun Gong has transferred its focus of action from Mainland China to abroad, especially USA, Canada and Australian. Falun Gong has also hired many vagabonds overseas to move around the Chinese diplomatic missions and disturb the diplomatic activities of Chinese government or to circulate Falun Gong propaganda material in the public places. Falun Gong followers overseas have used a strategy of "promoting domestic development with overseas efforts"  to act against Chinese government, by shipping much anti-government propaganda material to Mainland China, directing  Falun Gong followers in China to have illegal activities with remote control and modern propaganda means. Activities such as telling the truth and propagandizing "nine comments" and quitting Communist Party conducted by Mainland Falun Gong followers in light of overseas instructions are just a passive response to the abroad action. As Falun Gong followers in Mainland China are in disadvantageous condition, their actions are very covert and limited. Even Li Hongzhi has indicated for many times in his lection that it was the last chance for spreading Falun Gong, and that Falun Gong disciples should be brave enough to come out to tell the truth, it is of little effect. Therefore, Falun Gong followers in Mainland China are seldom seen active in the society.

On the contrary, overseas Falun Gong followers were very active. Under the command of Falun Gong headquarters, they have done many things such as concocting rumors one by one and compiling articles against Chinese government, organizing overseas retroactive forces including "democratic movement activists" and other separatists to smear and demonize Chinese government and trying to interfere the foreign affaires of Chinese government. A farce occurred on the south lawn of the White House is quite typical of such deeds. In order to cadge money for their activities, they have connived or even forced Falun Gong followers in Mainland China to confront Chinese government by seducing them with consummation without caring their lives. As Falun Gong followers in Mainland China are very clear about their own condition, and clearly know that their master Li Hongzhi can do anything he wants as he has his shelter. They know that if they act against Chinese government, they are doing nothing but endangering themselves or their families. In this sense, they could only act covertly. Falun Gong followers overseas are in collusion with various anti-China forces. In order to get their financing, Falun Gong followers overseas have already become a tool of these groups. They conduct their anti-China propagandizing by plotting rumors; they hire hobos to interfere foreign affairs of Chinese government; they smear Chinese official out of thin air. In this sense, Falun Gong has already become leader of the organizations hostile to Chinese government.

How does Falun Gong gradually evolve into a tool of the western anti-China political forces? What is the outlook for Falun Gong? Such questions are not only concerned by Falun Gong followers but also concerned by Chinese government. I've found through my study that the evolution of Falun Gong into a cult organization is clearly a gradual process without a clear timetable.

2. Falun Gong is catalyzed by greed for money

In the mid of 1980's, "Qigong" and "special competence" became a popular pursuit in Mainland China. It was said that Qigong could cure any disease, and that it could cure disease, especially chronics from a thousand kilometers away. It was said that people with special competence could do many things even better than supernatural beings, such as seeing objects through walls, penetrating walls and taking objects out of bottles without opening the cover. Some media and scholars echoed such overstatements saying that such phenomena deserved to be studied. To the commonners, it seemed as if "Qigong" and "special competence" were real. In a time when China carried out its Reform and Opening up policy and its economy developed rapidly, life of people in China improved greatly, so did their demand for better life and health. Qigong, as a traditional Chinese cultural heritage, is a kind of exquisite exercising method. Since Qigong is easy to learn and to exercise, it is suitable for anyone. Therefore, Qigong is widely accepted by various social groups especially the senior and weak ones. Among the vulnerable groups, their illness led to their poverty. For those people who could not afford to seeing doctors, Qigong should be very appealing as it was boosted that practicing it could cure disease. Under such social background, some Qigong masters made profit by training others practicing Qigong, publishing books on Qigong and other means related to Qigong. At that time, Qigong training courses mushroomed around China. People like Li Hongzhi who has little knowledge about Qigong sensed chances of profiting in the "Qigong fanatic" and "special competence fanatic". They crowded in this field, making money in the way of cheating.

Li Hongzhi began to amass money in the name of Qigong in 1988. In order to set up a kind of Gong of his own, he learnt "Chanmi Gong"("Tibetan Qigong") from Qigong master Li Weidong in Changchun and "Jiugong Bagua Gong" from Qigong master Yu Guangsheng. In order to make the kind of Qigong he "created" different from others, he learnt several folk dancing movements in Thailand as he visited his relatives there and developed a set of Qigong movements along with his gangster brothers in Changchun. In order to make his Gong appealing, Li learnt so called "special competence" magic which was popular in the society. With these techniques, Li Hongzhi decided to propagate his ideas of Falun Gong. At first, he earned money by teaching people ways of practicing Falun Gong free of charge but in the way of alms. He alleged that he taught Falun Gong practicing and treated the sickness free of charge and he  was for merits and virtues. Many people were beguiled by such tricks, and the influence of Falun Gong got greater and greater.

Since in Qigong market there was little market share left, Li Hongzhi realized it would be difficult for him - a new comer in the Qigong market - to compete with his seniors and masters, not to mention to increase his market share. In order to amass money more effectively, Li decided to repack Falun Gong. Since he was clear about the appealing of religion in the civil society, and as a matter of fact, there is profound relationship between Qigong and religion, Li Hongzhi decided to package Falun Gong with religion. In February 1992, Li Hongzhi named his "ways of practicing" as "Falun" (Wheel of Law) -a term of Budhism. In the mean time, he compiled a booklet "Falun Gong" to link his ways of practicing with Buddhism. The 15 pages 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 to "Chinese Falun Gong". In April 1993, Li Hongzhi published his "Chinese Falun Gong". The book is over 80,000 words and is divided into four chapters. In December 1993, the book was republished with the name of "Chinese Falun Gong (revised)" and of over 84,000 words. In the book, Li Hongzhi depreciated Qigong masters, saying, "What they (Qigong masters) taught is only things about keeping fit and away from disease." "They didn't teach anything higher than that."

Li Hongzhi argued that, "around the world, Only I am teaching Gong upon the top grade." Falun Gong coated with religion captivates many people as it seems that practicing Falun Gong can not only making oneself stronger, but also help to achieve consummation. In competing with other kinds of Qigong, Falun Gong won them all and became outstanding in Changchun area. By teaching Falun Gong in Changchun area as well as around China, by publishing the books "Falun Gong" and "Chinese Falun Gong", Li Hongzhi strengthened not only the Falun Gong organization, but made for himself a lot of money.

3. Falun Gong was simply an organization practicing Qi Gong before 1994

The reason for Chinese government to have banned Falun Gong is that Falun Gong is a cult organization. At first many Falun Gong practitioners thought it was baseless for Chinese government to proclaim Falun Gong to be cult. In my opinion, in the time when Chinese government banned on Falun Gong, it had already evolved into an arrant cult organization, therefore it is proper for Chinese government to have banned it. At that time, frequently happened cases of Falun Gong killing innocents as well as Falun Gong followers' unruly attacking government offices and other organizations had already endangered safety of people as well as the ruling of Chinese government, and thus uncovered the cult nature of Falun Gong. Therefore it is justified for Chinese government to take actions against it. During my investigation on the evolution of Falun Gong, I've found, however, that Falun Gong was not totally cult at its initial stages (before 1994).

Before 1994, Falun Gong was a common organization of Qigong, especially at its initial stages. In 1992, Mr. Li Hongzhi compiled "Chinese Falun Gong". It could be observed from the expression in his book "Chinese Falun Gong" that the focus of Li Hongzhi at that time was on spreading Gong. In order to promote Falun Gong and took a share in the Qigong market, Li Hongzhi tried to boast Falun Gong, arguing that Falun Gong was "Buddhist Qigong" and "Gong" of the higher grade. Li Hongzhi's Propagation of Falun Gong at that time was on explaining "ways of practicing" and "theory of Falun Gong" and on teaching Falun Gong. When Falun Gong was landed in Beijing, Li Hongzhi also believed it to be a kind of Qigong organization so as to get a legal status. Consequently Falun Gong was approved by the civil administration department and directly registered as one of the schools of "China Qi Gong Scientific Research Association". In article Enlightening in the booklet "Keys to Vigor", Li Hongzhi said, "'Chinese Falun Gong' and its revised edition are only something helping people to understand things with Qigong". In this sense, activities of Falun Gong were only for Qigong spreading. From May 1992 to 1994, when Li Hongzhi frequently traveled around China to teach Gong and teach Fa, Falun Gong gradually evolved from a Qigong organization into a cult organization. By the time "Rotating Wheel of Law" was published in December 1994, the cult theory of Falun Gong was formed. Publishing of "Rotating Wheel of Law" is the watershed for the evolution of Falun Gong. Since then, Falun Gong replaced its original parlance "Buddhist Qigong" with "Buddhism of Rotating Wheel", turn it from a "Qigong" organization to a religion organization (and gradually evolved into a real cult organization). It is an essential conversion for Li Hongzhi to have published "Rotating Wheel of Law". From then on, Li Hongzhi didn't ever acknowledge Falun Gong to be a kind of Qigong organization and never mentioned the book "Chinese Falun Gong" and its contents.

4. Falun Gong gradually evolved from a Qigong organization into a cult organization from 1994 to 1996

People in Changchun Qigong circle knew everything of Li Hongzhi, including his knowing about Qigong. Li Hongzhi surely was aware of the hardness for him, who was insufficiently skilled in Qigong, to compete with the Qigong seniors and masters. In order to win the Qigong market to make money, Li racked his brains to fabricate tricks. As he knew that religion, especially Buddhism and Taoism is of great influence in the civil society, he sanctified himself by both Buddhism and Taoism, saying that: when he was four years old, Master Quan Jue, the tenth successor of Buddhist Great Fa, had gave him secret instructions on how to reach the top stage of "truthfulness, Benevolence and forbearance"; when he was eight years old, his training was completed, he acquired great power and near his canthus suddenly emerged three Chinese characters- "truthfulness, Benevolence and forbearance"; when he was 12 years old, the Taoist Master Baji Zhenren (Eight-Pole Immortal) taught him Taoist practices; In 1972, he received Taoist instructions from Master Zhendaozi (True Taoist), a great Taoist different fro both general Buddhist and Taoist and; in 1974, he received further training in Buddhist cultivation from a Buddhist female master, and then his merits reached a top grade beyond imagination of common people, boasting him as a sovereign god. In the meantime, he made up Falun Gong with doxy from both Buddhism and Taoism. Falun Gong therefore has been featured in a cult organization.

In order to amass money, Li Hongzhi even depreciated the Qigong masters who had instructed him. He said in "Chinese Falun Gong (revised edition)" that, "I come to the public to improve the overall effect of practicing by helping those who have practiced for several years without progress to a higher grade and having them enlightened as soon as possible and; to help clarify bad phenomena in the Qigong community as well as things bad from another space, so that the orthodox Fa can be carried forward, Qigong can develop healthily along with the correct route. " By saying so, Li Hongzhi indicated that Qigong of the masters is of no effect. In this way, Falun Gong, which is coated with religion finally defeated other Qigong categories. The success of Falun Gong in Changchun area brought a lot of profit to Li Hongzhi.

Driven by the greed for more money, Li Hongzhi decided to have Falun Gong spread around China. In the spring of 1992, Li transferred his headquarter to Beijing. In order to have a legal status, Falun Gong was directly registered as one of the schools of "China Qi Gong Scientific Research Association" in 1992-1993. Li Hongzhi promoted Falun Gong in ways such as giving lectures, demonstrating "special competence" and "curing disease with Qigong". He managed to participate and had a successful performance in "Oriental Health Expo" held in Beijing, where he was awarded Special Gold Award,  "Most Popular Qigong Master" and Award for Advancement in Marginal Science. Li Hongzhi made efforts to promote Falun Gong everywhere, even entering into the office area of the Ministry of Public Security. Enlarged influence of Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong in Beijing gave birth to Li's ambition of becoming a hierarch.

In order to have Falun Gong spread around China, Li Hongzhi organized and held Falun Gong training courses all over China under the flag of "Falun Dafa Research Society". In the one and a half years' time from May 1992 to late 1994, "Falun Dafa Research Society" and Li Hongzhi held some 53 terms Falun Gong training course around China, which trained thousands of direct backbones for the Falun Gong organization. In order to enlarge his influence as a Falun Gong hierarch, in 1995, Li Hongzhi also rushed about in countries such as Sweden, USA, Australia, Canada, Germany, Singapore and Switzerland to give lectures on Fa. In order to enhance his control over the Falun Gong organization, Li Hongzhi stated in chapter six of "Requirements for Falun Dafa Teaching Station" that, "Conducts that violate connotation of Dafa should be firmly denounced. No disciple can share his lower level understanding and feeling with others, even it is for Benevolence, because it is not the Fa but words for good without any supernatural power. Anyone who preaches with his own experience and personal feeling shall be regarded as violate the great Fa. When quote my words, must use the term 'Li Hongzhi said' ……" It means that explanation for the alleged doxy of Falun Gong is attributed to Li Hongzhi.

In the training courses, Li Hongzhi tried to set his image as a hierarch by boasting himself as a god of limitless supernatural power superior than any other gods. On the training course held in Guangzhou, Li Hongzhi said, "Any Falun Gong disciple who has not get instruction from the master himself cannot take the post higher than assistant. " Until the end of 1994, from the top to the grass root branches, Falun Gong had already evolved into a nationwide cult organization leaded by its headquarters "Beijing Falun Dafa Research Society" with  Li Hongzhi as its head (in 1996, the South Commanding Center of Falun Gong was set up in Wuhan Falun Gong General Teaching Station). Li Hongzhi's hierarch status in the Falun Gong cult organization was established.

5.Falun Gong evolved into a cult organization gradually through spiritual control over its followers

In late 1994 when his hierarch status in the Falun Gong cult organization was established, Li Hongzhi began to have spiritual control over his followers in the way of other cult organizations to stabilize his status as a hierarch.

Li Hongzhi demanded all Falun Gong practitioners to learn "Rotating the Wheel" and took learning "Fa" as their priority. In the way of holding training courses for Falun Gong practitioners' forum, He continuously and repeatedly indoctrinated the notion of learning "Fa", calling for the practitioners locking themselves off to reject information from the outside world. This resulted in the practitioners' obsessing and becoming Li Hongzhi's tamed tools by disabling their distinguishing of good and bad, blocking their common cognition and thinking, and consequently Falun Gong was evolved into a cult organization. Li Hongzhi strengthened in training courses around China that Falun Gong practitioners should learn "Fa" by reading and reciting "Rotating the Wheel". He said in "Requirements for Falun Dafa Teaching Station" , "reading books of 'Fa' should be taken as a compulsory daily course. "

In Proposals Made on Beijing Falun Dafa Assistants' Meeting, Li Hongzhi said, "Hope you can bring about a surging in learning 'Fa'. Daily practicing should not be taken more important than learning 'Fa'. We should not only keep practicing everyday, but also keep learning 'Fa' everyday. Only if 'Fa' is well mastered can your practicing be guided. "

In "Keys to Vigor" number one, Li Hongzhi said, "Some of our regional guiders didn't read books to learn 'Fa', say that they feel headachy when read. Obviously there is devil interfering while they themselves don't want to cast away from its control…Those who don't want to read books and learn 'Fa' but complaining headachy are all interfered and controlled by devil. The only way of casting away from its control is trying hard to read and learn 'Fa'. It should be clearly noted not to complain about headache during reading, otherwise you are nothing but coward… Some people come here with their own purpose, but after learning 'Fa' most people can change their initial purpose…The more knowledge about Falun Gong your have, the less nature you will have of average people and the sooner you will form a stereotyped thought on Falun Gong." In Explaining "Fa" on European Falun Meeting, Li Hongzhi said, "Your must devoting yourself to reading books on Falun Gong. Every time in explaining 'Fa', I would stress on reading, reading and reading. As long as you read, your will get things better than you ever expected."

In Explaining "Fa" on Singapore Falun Meeting, Li Hongzhi said, "It is primary to read books on Falun Gong, which ensures your changing and consummation, while practicing is a complementary way for consummation. You cannot put practicing to a primary status while reading secondary. If you do like that, you can never reach such a top grade." When answering a question raised by a Falun Gong practitioner, "Is it good for us not to share our experience since we have been organized for three times each week to read through 'Rotating the Wheel'?", Li Hongzhi answered, "Yes, it is good. What do you spare so much time to share for? Just read through the book, just devote yourself to learning 'Fa'."

In Explaining 'Fa' on Eastern America Falun Meeting, Li Hongzhi said, "It is worse of all for those who read 'Rotating Wheel of Law' for the first time to comment on 'Fa' with concept of human being by saying 'well, it is great here, I have some doubt over there'. In that way, they will read the whole book in vain. What a pity! As 'Rotating Wheel of Law' is a serious book from heaven, when people, who are not clear about where their thoughts are from comment on such a book with conception of human being certainly can get nothing. Read the book without the interference of any preconditioned conception, and evaluate it after your read it through. Remember not to comment on the book while you are reading."

According to Li Hongzhi, when the practitioners are reading "Rotating wheel of Law", they should "disarm the mental arming and read through the book without selecting, choosing or thinking, not to mention analyzing, judging or reasoning. " In Explaining "Fa" on Florida Falun Meeting, he said, "no matter how difficult it is, no matter how busy you are, don't forget to learn 'Fa'. You must learn 'Fa', because it is the ultimate guarantee for your promotion."

Li Hongzhi asked Falun Gong practitioners to spend more time learning "Fa", stressing it is best to recite "Rotating Wheel of Fa". He repeated the importance of learning "Fa", requiring Falun Gong practitioners learning "Fa" with no intrusion of other thoughts or their own common cognition. He even boasted learning "Fa" to be the precondition for "promotion" and "consummation" pursued by the Falun Gong practitioners. Through learning "Fa", Falun Gong practitioners were gradually lost in the spiritual control of Falun Gong, obsessed in it and manipulated by Li Hongzhi, and Falun Gong gradually evolved into a real cult organization.

6. Forces of cult Falun Gong expanded and their political ambition emerged gradually from 1997 to 1999

In 1996, Chinese government got aware of the Falun Gong's cult nature. In late 1996, China Qi Gong Scientific Research Association made a decision to expel Falun Gong from China Qi Gong Scientific Research Association. But Li Hongzhi ignored Chinese government's policy as well as decision of China Qi Gong Scientific Research Association, kept on his activities in the name of "Falun Dafa Research Society" which was established in 1994 but was not registered according to the law. "Falun Dafa Research Society" held many group leaders' meetings of Falun Gong to give command to the Falun Gong organizations all over China. Key members of "Falun Dafa Research Society" were active around China to give command to the Falun Gong organizations all over China as commissioners of Li Hongzhi.

Since "Falun Dafa Research Society" belonged to an unlawful organization, it would certainly be rejected by Chinese government. Li Hongzhi, on the other hand, still went his own way. In the letter to Beijing Falun Gong practitioners on December 25, 1998, Li Hongzhi clearly stated, "If not independently registered, just do as before." That was to act against Chinese government. In 1996-1998, due to the strong trickish promotion and instigation, the Falun Gong organization expanded rapidly around China. For instance, in Shanghai, Li Hongzhi told leaders of the Falun Gong organization there that he wouldn't go to Shanghai to teach 'Fa' until the Falun Gong organization there developed to certain size. In 1996, Wang Zhiwen, the leader of Beijing Falun Dafa Research Society criticize Shanghai Falun Gong organization through telephone call, saying, "In such a large city like Shanghai, number of Falun Gong practitioners is not comparable to that of a county. " In order to develop Falun Gong organization in Shanghai, Ji Liewu, the member of Beijing Falun Dafa Research Society, went to Shanghai for three times in 1996-1998 to coordinate and guide the leadership of Shanghai Falun Gong organization. As the secondary center of Falun Gong in the south, Wuhan Falun Gong General Teaching Station gave much more guidance and instruction to the Falun Gong organization in Shanghai. With the promotion of Falun Dafa Research Society and Wuhan Falun Gong General Teaching Station, the Falun Gong organization in Shanghai published a journal "Falun Dafa in Shanghai" to help spreading Falun Gong in Shanghai. It also planed a "Dafa" promotion activity of over ten thousand people (in Shanghai Stadium). Since it has not been carried out because the Shanghai police has detected its plan, nevertheless it brought about certain social impact. Although Shanghai police has greatly deterred the Shanghai Falun Gong organization, its size still enlarged for several times in the period of 1996-1999.

Falun Gong's rapid development around China has resulted in the inflation of Li Hongzhi's political ambition, who thought that forces of Falun Gong was strong enough to act against Chinese government. On June 17, 1996, Guangming Daily pointed that "Rotating Wheel of Law" is pseudoscience that spread superstition. Later Falun Gong besieged Guangming Daily and asked it to deliver public apology. Until 1997, Falun Gong got more and more arrogant. Any organization or individual who denounced Falun Gong, would be challenged by Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong in laying a siege and attacking, including school, individual family, media or Party and government department compounds.

On April 19, 1999, "Teenager Science-Technology Outlook", a Tianjin Normal University magazine, contained an article entitled "I'm Opposed To Qigong Practice By Teenagers" by Professor He Zuoxiu of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. On April 22, 1999, Li Hongzhi organized Falun Gong practitioners to besiege the university. Falun Gong took offense at the article saying that He Zuoxiu was devil and threatened to get rid of him. On April 25,1999, Li Hongzhi organized more than 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners gathered outside Zhongnanhai to challenge Chinese government face to face. Through this, Li Hongzhi's political ambition was full revealed.

7. Li Hongzhi created an exile headquarter of Cult Falun Gong by throwing himself into the lap of the western anti-China forces

Li Hongzhi was clear about the consequence of acting against the powerful Chinese government. From late 1994 to early 1995, he managed to apply American visas for him and his family with the money he amassed. As a precaution, he settled his family in America. When Falun Gong practitioners were besieging Zhongnanhai in April 1999, Li Hongzhi himself fled abroad to give remote control and observe its evolution. When he observed that Chinese government would take real action on the Falun Gong organization for have besieging Zhongnanhai, he denied for having organized the incident and fled to his home in America that he had arranged in advance, claiming that he was an U.S citizen, Chinese government could do nothing to him. Since Chinese government's banning on Falun Gong, organizing structure of the Falun Gong organization in Mainland China was collapsed. With revealing the cult nature of Falun Gong organization and the government's persistent persuasion, most Falun Gong practitioners quitted Falun Gong, only a few backbone members and practitioners who had been punished by Chinese government still insisted on their position about Falun Gong. Under the strong policy of Chinese government on banning Falun Gong, activities of Falun Gong in Mainland China have almost vanished.

From July 1999 to 2000, Li Hongzhi hid in America without any public activity. According to the Falun Gong organization, Li was peacefully observing evolution of the society. In fact Li Hongzhi was busy with two kinds of activities during that time. First, since Fanlun Gong organization in Mainland China was destroyed by Chinese government, he would re-establish the exile headquarters for the Falun Gong organization; second, since the exiled Falun Gong organization overseas was in very bad financial state, it would need financing from the western anti-China forces. Chinese government's abrupt banning on Falun Gong led to a ceasing period for Falun Gong as its activities had to be paused before Li Hongzhi's new boss needed time to review and accede to his wish of seeking refuge.

With the help of its western boss, the Falun Gong organization got revived in 2000. In order to gain the cognition of Falun Gong followers, Li Hongzhi asked his followers to curse Chinese government and its leaders by "Fazhengnian", a kind of ridiculous witchery used by wizards and witches. In 2001, on the Falun Gong Meeting held in Canada, Li Hongzhi instigated Falun Gong practitioners to collectively "Fazhengnian" upon Chinese government, saying that as long as Falun Gong practitioners collectively recited "Fa conquers the universe and the evil perishes", "Fa dominates the world and revenge takes effect", "devilish" Chinese government would be destroyed and turned into bloody water. Minghui Net also claimed on May 27, 2001 to have turned He Zuoxiu into poisonous bloody water when "Fazhengnian". On October 13, 2002, Li Hongzhi called for worldwide Falun Gong practitioners to "Fanzhengnina" at the same time everyday, saying that their "Nian" force( will power) should be focused and strong with their mind be clear and focused, that they should have the vigor of demolishing any evil force in the universe, and that they should finish the pithy formula with the word "Mie" (die) with strong "Nian" force gathered. How much hatred Li Hongzhi must have towards Chinese government!

From 2000 to 2005, Li Hongzhi established abroad his new commanding center for Falun Gong and rallied again since he cast himself to his western boss. Falun Gong actively coordinated the west to denounce our human right status and attempted to get international sympathy by spreading  that Chinese authority treated a civil organization with the state mechanism. Since its overseas headquarter was established, Falun Gong actively developed its organization by gathering overseas Falun Gong followers and supporters (including democratic activists) to promote its overseas influence. With the financing of western anti-China forces, Falun Gong gradually set up propagating facilities including network, press and publication system to propagate among overseas Chinese with fabricated rumors and anti-China Communist publications to get their sympathy. They attempted to restore its underground organization in Mainland China by means of penetration and forced Falun Gong practitioners in Mainland China to "tell the truth" with a strategy of "promoting domestic development with overseas efforts". They threatened to propagate Falun Gong in Mainland China by means of overwhelming propagating material, IP calls and attacking satellite. Efforts of Falun Gong organization have resulted in certain rebounding of Falun Gong activities in certain area of Mainland China, disrupting public orders in some areas and seriously disturbed Chinese government's efforts of helping and saving Falun Gong practitioners in Mainland China.

8. Cult Falun Gong evolved into a core of the anti-China organizations controlled by the western anti-China forces from 2005 to 2007

Since banning, the Falun Gong organization gradually diminished and died out in the society because of Chinese government's long lasting alerting and strict punishment. With a few exiles hostile to Chinese government, overseas Falun Gong organization is very weak no matter how active it is. The most foreigners looked down upon these Chinese practicing "refugee exercise", only a few were believing Falun Gong. Falun Gong has been marginalized and its days is getting harder and harder. What the western anti-China forces regard as important  is Falun Gong's social foundation in China, and they just want to have Falun Gong organization to act as the banner holder of the anti-China organizations under its control. In order to get support from the western anti-China forces, Falun Gong gets more and more accustomed to the master-servant relationship between them under the consensus of anti-China. Therefore,  Falun Gong gradually gave up themselves to their masters to gather together various overseas hostile forces and actively mingled with the anti-China forces in and out of China, and gradually evolved into a core of the anti-China organizations controlled by the western anti-China forces.

In "Rotating Wheel of Law", Li Hongzhi argued, "Power of Buddha is manifested in everything, from particle to molecule to the universe. It perceives every mystery without missing. It is the different expressions of Truthfulness, Benevolence and Forbearance in different grade. It is Tao in the term of Taoism and 'Fa'(Law) in the term of Buddhism." By such an argument, Li Hongzhi explained clearly that Falun Gong was a religion. By 2006, however, Li Hongzhi changed his altitude and tried to deny the religious nature of Falun Gong aiming to casting away Chinese government's assertion that Falun Gong is a cult religion.

On February 2006, on Falun Gong Meeting in Los Angeles, Li Hongzhi said, "By the way, all of you must not answer the question of whether we are religion or not. It doesn't matter how others think of us. Do you understand? In China, religion is clearly defined. For religion there must exist temple, prayers and rituals such as baptism. It is quite clear that you must take part in religious functions since you are its followers. Otherwise you cannot say that you are its followers. While in the western society, things are quite different. In this sense, if someone ask whether you are religious or not, you must not give any answer. If the government authorities, social communities and parliament members indicate that you are religious, you should not deny it. If legal issues are involved, you may address with articles related to religion. Remember that under such occasions, especially when legal issues are involved, you may admit that you are religious. This is the difference between the east and the west, which doesn't offend the Law if mentioned. As I have already indicated in 'Key to Vigor', we are not religion, while people may take us as religion. Every one of you should be aware of this point. " Here Li Hongzhi clearly explained that Falun Gong was not a religion. In order to deny its image as a cult, when responding to question "whether it was necessary to see doctor of illness", Li Hongzhi said that he had never asked Falun Gong practitioners not to see the doctor.

In the meantime, Falun Gong has gradually evolved into an anti-communist political organization. For example, Falun Gong intentionally fabricated rumors such as "Sujiatun Rumors", " Harvesting Falun Gong practitioners' organs alive" to deceive the public; to defame Chinese government's human right status by means of abusing lawsuits against Chinese officials; to interfere the foreign activities of Chinese government and to blemish the international overall profile of Chinese government…These all prove that Falun Gong has evolved into an anti-China, an-Communist political organization.

In the initial time when Falun Gong organization  fled abroad, it pretended to be lofty, claiming that it was Law of the universe and Li Hongzhi was the sovereign god to save people on the earth. Therefore anti-China forces including democratic movement activists looked down upon the Falun Gong organization. But with the intervening of its western anti-China masters, Falun Gong began to gather together various overseas hostile forces against China and actively mingled with the anti-China forces in 2006. It improved its coordination with Taiwan independence force. Wang Wenyi, a Falun Gong practitioner who had interrupted the White House ceremony, worked closely with the Taiwan independence force by organizing Falun Gong followers in Taiwan to give support to "Three Quits" one by another.  The articles "Nine Comments" were compiled by and published on Epoch Times which was adminstered by the democratic movement activists, in order to serve as core the anti-China forces, Li Hongzhi also let down his dignity as a hierarch and changed his rigid rule of "Falun Gong practitioners in the mainland China should not take part in propagating 'Nine Comments'", asking his followers to spread "Nine Comments" and taking the activity of spreading "Nine Comments" as essential part of Falun Gong's "telling the truth". Later, Li Hongzhi worked even more closely with the democratic movement activists in spreading "Disaggregating Culture of the Communist Party" complied by  Epoch Times. Contents of its "telling the truth" also shifted from the initial propagating of its alleged persecution of Chinese government upon Falun Gong to human rights and democracy, aiming to demolish or even overthrow Chinese government. In this course, Falun Gong modified its original cult image. Li Hongzhi argued for his cult words and deeds in many occasions. Now he doesn't instigate Falun Gong to have self-immolation or insist on not to see doctor for illness. In this sense, the fanatic and unreasonable cult nature of Falun Gong changed a little. It is, indeed, evolving from a cult organization to a political organization and core of the anti-China organizations under the control of the western anti-China forces. Future of Falun Gong is of great concern to every one.

9. Where will Falun Gong go in the future?

Chinese government maintained a sustainable, speedy and stable economic development and Chinese comprehensive power is greatly enhanced. Such achievement made the western anti-China forces worried, and "Chinese deterrence arguments" emerged once and once again. Anxiety of its masters also agitates Falun Gong as well. Since Falun Gong has become the core of  anti-China organizations, its cult nature of anti-reason, anti-science and anti-human has changed a little. But on the other hand, it has got more and more politicized and gradually become a political tool of the western anti-China forces, and thus posing a great threat to the Chinese government.

Before 2006, although Li Hongzhi had some political ambition, he dared not to say he played politics. On September 3, 1996, Li Hongzhi said, "Practicing is not political"… "Some practitioners are critical to the society and the government. They learned our 'Fa' without giving up their strong hatred and even wishing to make use of 'Fa' for their politic ambition. These are dirty psychological behavior that violates Buddhism and 'Fa'. They will not consummate if they don't give up such thought. "

On September 7, 1996, Li Hongzhi promised in the book "Dafa Lasts Forever" that Falun Gong "will never involved in politics, never interferes the state affairs. By real practicing and pursuing benevolence, keep purity of 'Dafa', and it will last forever."

On June 4, 2001, in the article "No Politics", Li Hongzhi alleged Falun Gong to be "the force to strive for justice that acts against the evil regimes", saying that Falun Gong was not politicized but "to save people". In those days, Li Hongzhi didn't admit the kind of retroactive political activities to be "involved in politics". Although Falun Gong was involved in politics at that time, but they dared not to say so openly.

By February 21, 2007 (the fourth day of the new year under Chinese Lunar calendar), however, Li Hongzhi eagerly published the book "Reflection on Politics". In "Reflection on Politics", Li Hongzhi said, "Since 'politics' can reveal facts about persecution and stop persecution, can help to tell the truth and save people, why can't we make use of politics? Falun Gong disciples shall get involved in politics to fight against Chinese government". He held up the flag of politicization by further instigating Falun Gong practitioners to get fully involved in politics and overthrowing Chinese government. Currently Falun Gong has completely mingled with the anti-China organizations and served as the pioneer of the western anti-China forces.

By creating Falun Gong, Li Hongzhi wishes to be the Number one hierarch in the world. He had meant to develop Falun Gong by making use of the influence of religion among people. After several years' promotion, however, he felt that other religions hindered the development of Falun Gong. In particular it was every difficult to spread Falun Gong in religions such as Christian, Islam, Buddhism and Taoism because followers of these religions are very devout to their respective belief. Li Hongzhi was very hostile to these religions as they have hindered him from realizing his dream of becoming No. one hierarch in the world, hindered him from realizing his goal of enlarging Falun Gong and serving as pioneer of the western anti-China forces. Such hatred bursted out on February 28 when Li Hongzhi published an article "Comprehensively Disaggregate the Psudo-gods Interfering the Orthodox Law", declaring war against religious followers in the world. He said, "the so called gods that dominate the major religions…at present they try to prevent the followers from understanding the truth, having billions of followers lose such a outstanding chance; they put the common people at such a risk as to be washed out and; even directly interfere the orthodox law. In order to save the common people, Falun Gong followers must comprehensively disaggregate the Psudo-gods that prevent the commonners from being saved from understanding the truth. Comprehensively disaggregate and clear out them, disregarding what forms they have, whether they are tangible or intangible and how lofty they are." Li Hongzhi's act on impulse has betrayed his intention of becoming No. one hierarch in the world.

Based on Falun Gong's evolution, its latest actions and analysis of the two lections of Li Hongzhi, I estimate that the political tendency of Falun Gong would be as follows:

Falun Gong will continue to serve as the core of anti-China, anti-Communist organizations under control of the western anti-China forces. Taking its overseas headquarters as a centre, it will coordinate the anti-China and anti-Communist propagating efforts of the western anti-China forces; interrupt foreign activities of Chinese government, blemish Chinese government's international images; it will try to prop up Mainland China activists under the camouflage of human rights, freedom and democracy, and to coordinate the western anti-China forces with their efforts of peaceful evolution against China, including having color revolution. Toppling down Chinese government is the ultimate goal of Falun Gong.

In the future, priority of Falun Gong organization will still be: serving as the anti-China political tool of the western anti-China forces; trying whatever they can to promote influence of Falun Gong and develop its forces; denouncing belief of Chinese government as "exotic culture" that are antipathetic to traditional Chinese culture by fabricating articles like "Nine Comments on the Communist party", "Disaggregating Culture of the Communist Party"; By fabricating rumors and rootless propagating of "Sujiatun Rumors", "Harvesting Falun Gong practitioners' organs alive" and "Three quits" to deceive the compassionate public, including overseas Chinese and friends of China and; disrupting public orders by instigating Falun Gong practitioners in Mainland China to have illegal activities such as telling the truth.
