This website is devoted to telling the true story of the noble and courageous resistance of Falun Gong practitioners in China to one of the most violent and ruthless persecutions in human history. Since July of 1999, Falun Gong practitioners have been subjected to arbitrary arrest, physical torture, and psychological/spiritual torture in the form of brainwashing. They have been fired from their jobs, expelled from schools, and sent to forced labor camps without trial, simply for not bowing to the decree of a communist dictator to renounce their guiding principles, Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truth-Compassion-Forbearance.)
Thousands are known to have died in the persecution, and in March of 2006, information surfaced and was later verified by independent investigators in Canada that perhaps thousands more missing Falun Gong practititoners were slaughtered so that their organs could be harvested and sold for huge profits to the transplant industry. These atrocities are still occurring as we speak.
Falun Gong, also called Falun Dafa, is an ancient form of qigong, the practice of refining the body and mind through slow-moving exercises and meditation. Although deeply rooted in Chinese culture, it was first introduced to the public in 1992 by its founder and teacher, Mr. Li Hongzhi. Falun Dafa quickly grew to become the most popular form of qigong ever in Chinese history, and is now practiced in over 60 countries worldwide by people from all walks of life. One major reason for its popularity is that Falun Dafa distinguishes itself from other qigong practices by emphasizing not only physical improvement, but also the elevation of character through living one's daily life according to the principles of Truth, Compassion, and Forbearance.
All of the songs, photos, and other materials on this site can be downloaded free of charge. We encourage you to copy them for non-commercial use, and give them to your friends and relatives, because the more people that learn the truth, the sooner this dark chapter in Chinas history will come to an end.
My daughter Sara and I have benefited greatly from practicing Falun Gong over the years, and this website represents our attempt to give back, as best we can, a small portion of what has been freely given to us. On the one hand, our songs expose the wickedness and cruelty of the CCP, while on the other, they describe the peaceful resistance of the practitioners, and their dedication to their principles through long years of persecution.
Please note: all of the opinions expressed on this website, either in the songs or the accompanying text, are strictly our own, and do not represent the official position of Falun Gong on any issue.
