    The American people will not be infected by COVID-19 according to the new scriptures published by Li Hongzhi, the master of Falun Dafa whose headquarter the Dragon Springs is located in New York. Li said the outbreak of Covid-19 is directed against the Communist Party of China. Thus only those who are close to the Communist Party of China will be infected. So even if the American people are infected, they can only be the carriers of the virus, but will never die. Therefore, ventilators and masks are unnecessary. As long as everyone practices Falun Dafa, the epidemic will be over soon.

    No, It is free to practice Falun Gong, we do pay a little fee for the book, and they can be bought in bookstores.
    It is also not a good way the OP has been presented.
    Even our master has come with a statement about the situation, it is not meant for none practitioners, because only those who have practiced for a long time, and have gained the Gong energy that Li Hongzhi speaks about would be able to "remove" the sickness.
    Even for me as a Falun Gong practitioner, I am not magically safe from getting the Covid-19 virus. So please understand that our Teacher does not magically save us just because we cultivating the teaching he has given.

    And the question about the Communist party in China. Does our master say anything about CCP? Yes and in my understanding. The leaders in CCP are what Falun Gong calls the old force, it means they working against all forms of cultivation and religions. Why? because they do not want human beings to be saved. Again this is my own understanding of the teaching.

    According to Falun Gong teaching, we are in the end times (no it will not end in a day, month or year) We don't know when the end is. But in Falun Gong, this is called consummation time. This in understanding means that those who are not "saved" will be feeling the karma they have produced themself. and yes it is a lot more suffering in the world today.

    But I want to make it clear, my understanding of the end time is very limited, so I can not answer very clearly at this time.

    And the last thing I want to say. even if you did chose to convert to Falun Gong, you will not be automatically out fo danger of getting COVID-19 you would have to cultivate your mind and body very diligently to even have a chance to gain the Gong energy. So this is not a magical cure for those who are afraid of the virus.
    Falun Gong is not for health benefit, it is a cultivation practice to become enlightened.
    And even it is the teaching of our master, it is ourselves that has to do all the changes, it is an 24/7 cultivation practice.

    That would be consistent with one or another of three possibilities:-
    1) Li Hongzhi does not read the newspapers or watch television,
    2) He does, but he is stark, raving mad
    3) You have made this up and he has said no such thing.

    Which is it?

    I think it is both the right moment and the right effort from my part to give the words and also the link to what our teacher Li Hongzhi has said. First, i have copied the text directly from a Falun gong website called minghui.org and it is also this link i will provide in the end of this post.

    To those who are not Falun Gong practitioner, I understand that some of what is written here will be both strange and maybe impossible for you to at this moment understand (honestly i do not understand all of it my self) So I ask of you if you feel a need to make a critique of the text or of our master/teacher you can send me a private message and I will provide you with my understanding and if possible, more quotes from our master.

    So here is the following statement Li Hongzhi have given. Just remember that he was speaking to us who do cultivate Falun Gong. He does not speak to others as far as i know.

    Friendly from Amanaki.

    Stay Rational
    Pandemics and plagues1 are part of a divine plan and inevitable in the course of history. When people become immoral they generate karma, become sick, and experience disastrous things. In such circumstances, people who do not believe in the divine then resort to various “measures” [or “cuo-shi” in Chinese] to try to deal with things. But the fact that “cuo-shi” is a homophone for another term in Chinese, which means “mistaken approach,” is telling. There have been many helpful lessons left to us from history, but they are not taken seriously by Chinese people today owing to their atheistic thinking and their disbelief in the divine—both of which are the product of brainwashing by China’s Communist Party (CCP).

    Truth be told, pandemics only come when people’s morals and values have turned bad and they have come to have a massive amount of karma. So if a pandemic is divinely ordained, what can be done to stop it? It would be divine will, after all. Some people do realize this and pray for protection, but it probably won’t help. That is because people are supposed to be weeded out when their moral character has turned bad and their karma has become huge. Why would the divine offer them protection at that point, then? What people should do, instead, is to repent to the divine with all due sincerity, admit to their faults, and pray for a chance to change their ways. That is the way to go, and that is the magic cure.

    But a pandemic like the current Chinese Communist Virus (or “Wuhan Virus”) comes with a purpose behind it, and it has targets. It is here to weed out members of the Party and those who have sided with it. If anyone is in doubt about this, just take a look at which countries or people have been hit hardest by the virus: it is those who have become close with the CCP. Then what should people do? People should distance themselves from the CCP and stop siding with it. Behind it is the red Devil, while outwardly it looks and acts like a thug who stops at no evil. So now that the divine is starting to eradicate it, all who still stand by it shall perish. Those who doubt this can wait and see.

    Any Dafa disciples who have not been diligent, or who are prone to acting in extreme ways, should immediately straighten themselves out, and sincerely study the Fa and work on themselves, for you are at great risk. True Dafa disciples have higher energy and are able to destroy karma and germs; they are emissaries of salvation in these latter days, and bring their wisdom to bear upon saving people as they share truthful information related to our practice. Also, I should mention that there are practitioners in many regions who are calling upon everyone to send righteous thoughts together to put an end to the Chinese Communist Virus (Wuhan Virus). But that is not the right idea. You are not here to change history, but rather, to save people at this most dangerous time in history, by raising awareness, persuading people to withdraw from China’s three major communist organizations, encouraging people to sincerely say the magic words,2 and so on. All of these are the best medicine possible, the best way to rescue people—when people’s morals change, things will change for the better. The CCP is in its death throes and trying to harm people by causing pandemonium in the world. Dafa disciples should not allow themselves to get ungrounded by any of this. Stick to the fundamentals, and you will be able to see the upheaval that’s taking place in the proper light.

    1 The Chinese term used here, wenyi, refers to both plagues as well as pandemics more broadly.

    2 A reference to either of the two affirmations people often recite, to magical effect, in Chinese: Falun Dafa hao (which is often translated as, literally, “Falun Dafa is good!”) and Zhen, Shan, Ren hao (which translates directly as, “Honesty, Compassion, and Forbearance are excellent values.”)

    And here is the link to minghui website

    Re the part in red, the countries worst affected are the USA, Italy, Spain and France, with the UK not far behind.
    Coronavirus Update (Live): 1,521,809 Cases and 88,653 Deaths from COVID-19 Virus Pandemic - Worldometer

    That would seem to suggest option 2.

    I can not and will not speak on behalf of my teacher. But if what he taught is true (something i do believe he does) He would not need to read the newspaper since he sees much deeper into the true cause of everything in this physical world.

    None practitioners will maybe not believe him, and that is ok because many of you have not studied his teaching and can not see the cause of why he says the things he does.
    And as I said, he speaks to the practitioners, not to those who do not practice Falun Gong.

    The only reason I provided the text from our teacher was that the maker of the OP has come with some false claims. so it is better to have the actual text.

    And I am sure many think exactly like you about what the text says.
    A discussion about why and how Li Hongzhi says what he does will be of no use to any of us because Li Hongzhi is not here to explain. Only he can know why he said what he did.

    Well I agree with the last sentence.;)

    But he will have an uphill struggle to convince anyone that the countries worst affected are those closest to the Chinese Communist Party, when the statistics are publicly available.

    I can not answer for that, but i can say what i think.
    If those countries have some kind of connection with the CCP and CCP uses these countries to spread the wickedness CCP does stand for, then it can be this reason why it was said, But I honestly do not know at this moment.

    Do you think the Chinese Communist Party uses the United States to spread wickedness? Really? How? Is Trump an agent of Xi?

    They are working toward removing every spirituality from the earth, they want everyone to become atheists, and they attack Practitioners of Falun Gong because we have more followers then CCP at this moment.

    Deeper within the knowledge of CCP it can be seen that they belong to the "old Forces" meaning those who were before this civilization of human beings. And their mission is to stop people from reaching consummation in the end time, (they do not want people to reach enlightenment)

    This is only a few things CCP does wrong.

    Thank you. Actually Marxist ideology is only a sub set of materialism. Do you mean to say that Falun is against materialism or is it specifically against the communistic aspect of materialism?

    I reject materialism but I like the egalitarian ideologies.
