The greatest book ever written. One cannot possibly understand its inner meaning in one read. Unusually written, I found it confronting the first time, completely different the second and by the third time I couldn't stop reading it. I still read it all these years later. Guaranteed, this book will fundamentally change the way you think about life, the universe and everything.

This is most likely the most enlightening book ever written.

I've learned more from it than any other spiritual or metaphysical book ever.

This book gives insights that continue to expand every time you read it. This book gives and gives.

All you have to do is be aware of it and you'll be hooked for life.

Gives you hope for the future, and a whole sense of understanding the universe.

The greatest non-fiction book I've ever read. It helps me discover my true self. What more is there to want?

The greatest fiction book would be The Divine Comedy, in case you're curious.

If you are so fortunate, it will be the most important book you ever read. You should definitely have a read and find out if it is so :).

Firstly, as a supporter of freedom of expression & conscience I am against the banning of this book in China & the prosecution of Falun Gong. I read the Chinese version out of curiosity, and it's an awful mix of pseudoscience & Buddhist/Christian/Marxist terminology. Not very well written as the author conceded in the beginning, and is also a bit homophobic, but as a religious text probably not much worse than many others.

Excellent Book.

^^ I read the electronic copy i downloaded from

i don't know if i'd come to consider this book as most important thing in the world... for me, that is.. *wink* but it really is something...

following the teachings in the book, it would not be wise to explain the dafa for i'm not a master.
what i'll explain may not be the true dafa.

the gist though is as follows: ( base on my feeble understanding)

- falun dafa is a cultivation practice.

- upgrade the xinxing ( mind nature, character, or

By far the best book I have ever picked up. This book looks seriously at the important question of how to live your life and why. An excellent guide. I read it everyday.

I tried very hard to read this with a beginner's mind (i.e. with no judgment), but halfway through it, I really can't do it anymore.

There are so many logically fallacies in there, so many anecdotes based on poor understanding of world religions and physics in there that makes it very hard for me to TRUST this as a serious body of philosophical knowledge. He mentions things like Ica Stones and other artefacts that prove there was human intelligence in the pre-historic era. A simple Google search

This is my book of life for sure. I have spent several years to read and accept it, don’t know what kept me to continuing to read, just want to accept it and tried hard. Now i am a believer and read it everyday! 🙂 just want to tell that maybe it is hard, but it worth to try and try again and again.

This is another version of the book Zhuan Falun that I previously reviewed. Either version of Zhuan Falun is more than worth its weight in gold.

You can't find a treasure like this anywhere else.

Start reading now and begin to enrich your life in ways that you never dreamed possible.

If something is hard to do then you can do it.
This is the logic of Li Hongzhi with regards to enduring tribulations. It's not bad advice. In fact many of the things in this book are defenitely good ideas and practices. What is my main problem with it?
If i have to try so hard to believe it then i must be in the presence of crap.
He binds what is good from both Taoism and Buddhism to create a psuedo-religion, that in fact is not a religion at all but a meditation and cultivation system. If that

A book from Divine. Words simply cannot explain it. I think I have read it at least 20 times but there are still much much more to learn! Many Falun Gong practitioners I know have read it 200 times and they are still learning it.

Κριτική από την δεύτερη ανάγνωση, 24 Νοεμβρίου 2017
Ένα μοναδικό σε δυναμική βιβλίο, που μαζί με την πρακτική εξάσκηση οδηγεί τον αναζητητή στην ολοκλήρωση και στην υπέρβαση πέρα από οιαδήποτε όρια. Το βιβλίο αυτό είναι ό,τι σημαντικότερο έχει αποκαλυφθεί ποτέ στην τρέχουσα περίοδο Kalpa.

کتاب فوقالعادهای برای شناخت هستی که در اصل مجموعه سخنرانی های آقای لی هنگجی هستش
در ایران باقیمت پایین هفت هزار تومان در بعضی کتاب فروشی ها به صورت تقریباً ممنوعه به فروش میرسه و علت قیمت پایینش دیدگاه کسانی هست که این کتاب رو عرضه میکنن یعنی نباید در این راه سود مادی کسب بشه
همینطور فیلم های آموزشی و کتاب ها به صورت رایگان باید در اختیار همه قرار بگیره
