About Us

     Pure Heart, Clear Mind was created in 2005 to introduce the high-level self-cultivation practice of Falun Dafa (a.k.a. Falun Gong) to its viewers. Falun Dafa or Falun Gong is often described as a “high-level qigong practice.” However, “spiritual self-cultivation” is perhaps a more comprehensive description. There is a broad range of cultivation practices in the world today. Many of these focus on self-improvement on a practical, social level – cultivating only body and mind. But not all of them enter the deeper realm of spirituality. So in 2024 we expanded our mission to cover various aspects of cultivating body, mind and spirit.     

     All our videos and stories are created based on the author’s level of understanding and experience. They should not be taken as teaching Falun Dafa. That is the sole domain of its founder and teacher Master Li Hongzhi. We hope that veterans as well as newcomers will enjoy exploring our modest website as they walk their unique spiritual path.

Cultivation Practice

    When one thinks about self cultivation, not surprisingly images of Gautama (the historical Buddha) sitting under a bodhi tree may come to mind.

      Falun Dafa includes 5 very simple but powerful qigong-like exercises. This constitutes the “practice” component of “cultivation practice.” Equally important is the “cultivation” component of cultivation practice that focuses on improving one’s moral and spiritual character. Whether you cultivate as a monastic, a religious believer or a master’s disciple in ordinary society, the process is anything but glamorous. Many cultivators will tell you it’s downright arduous. 

     The ultimate goal of a genuine cultivation practice like Falun Dafa is to reach enlightenment and return to one’s true home. Falun Dafa practitioners are guided by the cosmic principle of Truthfulness – Compassion – Forbearance in their daily lives. They also work on raising their xinxing. The Chinese word xinxing is defined as mind or heart nature; moral character. Since the goal of Falun Dafa cultivation practice is very lofty, so are the requirements.

     Here are some encouraging words from Master Li Hongzhi, the founder and teacher of Falun Dafa: “It is not that the path of cultivation is agonizing. It is the karma from lifetime after lifetime obstructing you. Steeling your will, eliminate karma and cultivate xinxing. Obtaining an immortal human body, a Buddha.” He also says: “An ordinary person scarcely knows the hardship of cultivation. He mistakes fighting and competing for happiness. Cultivate yourself until not one attachment is omitted. Then the hardship is over and sweetness arrives, that is true happiness.” –Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa

   Keep this in mind: Your cultivation practice has to be done with all your heart and soul, as if your (eternal) life depended on it, because it does! And be sure not to mix in anything with your chosen cultivation practice. If you are doing Zen, just do Zen; if you are  doing Dafa, just do Dafa.

     May you live long and cultivate well!
