It's a hard question because the creator of Falun Gong, Li Hongzhi, provided different answers before and after he came to America:
In China, he said, "Falun Gong is the only truth of the universe, that I discovered."
In America, he said, Falun Gong is part of ancient Chinese culture.
Is it true? Please ask any Chinese people you know if he/she is a Falun Gonger. The answer will be NO.
