Falun Gong (Simplified: 法轮功; Traditional: 法輪功; Hanyu pinyin: Fălúngōng) is a modern Chinese "system of mind and body cultivation", founded in 1992 by Li Hongzhi. The teachings of Li stress high moral standards, respect for human life, and spiritual development specifically focusing on Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance (真，善，忍）.
Since 1999, the communist government of the People's Republic of China has taken a harsh stance towards followers of Li, imprisoning many. Allegations of torture have been made by former prisoners.
