How Falun Gong views the disabled

2009-04-08 Author:China Association for Cultic Studies

Li Hongzhi not only shows a callous indifference to but also insults the disabled, and even prohibits his disciples from helping and taking care of the disabled.


Li Hongzhi says that the disabled people look ugly: "With a little hype from radio and television, blind or handicapped singers with hoarse voices and those with repulsive looks become stars." (Zhuan Falun Vol. Ⅱ)


Li Hongzhi thinks that one is disabled because of the bad things he had done in his previous life for which he hasn't paid off the Karma completely. He stops his followers to care the disabled and take part in the well-being of the disabled.


"Why do people suffer? While living in this world people create karma. Some people's karma is great, some people's is small. Some people will be in pain before they die. With suffering they can pay off much of the karma created in one lifetime, and in the next life they will lead a good life." If "they don't want to be in pain, they don't want to pay it off. Thus when they are born into their next lives they may come with sick bodies, or even be handicapped or have a short life." (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Houston)


"Disabled people have it too easy, then they can't repay karma. In the next life they might be disabled again." (The Law of Zhuan Falun Explained)


"The most important thing that you need to do today is to clarify the facts and save sentient beings…The government does provide care for handicapped people, after all, so you shouldn't think about it too much. If you're too attached to these things, then I can tell you, you can forget about cultivation." (Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference)
