Zhuan Falun (Turning The Law Wheel)

Hi all,

I've come across a fascinating book that I think the DojoPsi community would find of great interest.

This book talks about high level spiritual things from a scientific perspective. It's an intriguing read as it talks about many similar things to what people in mystical states mention such as seeing into parallel dimensions and interacting with beings from other worlds etc.

This book is called Zhuan Falun and it is from the Buddha Law School of Cultivation however it is not Buddhism the religion or Daoism the religion, it's something more profound. It seems to me to be more of a spiritual science as many of the terms and concepts in the book are talked about in a scientific down to earth manner instead of flowery mystical prose which I found very refreshing.

Now here is where it gets interesting, this book talks about the following things:

● Other Dimensions - Levels Of Dimensions spanning into the microcosm and also outwards into the macrocosm

● The Soul - It talks about people having a Master soul and a subordinate soul which is hidden from you but is at a more advanced level then you, it states some people have more then one Subordinate soul and some are of not of the same sex as you i.e males having a female subordinate soul etc.

● Microcosmic worlds - This concept was very far out but it talks about there being worlds within you, countless worlds. Similar to our world with life , water, animals etc. An analogy is zooming an an atom within one of your cells and realizing at that level of magnification it is just like our solar system. Then zooming into a single particle in that world and finding out it too is a vast world, apparently the level it can go onwards like this is beyond imagination.

● Supernatural Abilities - In the book they mention that everyone has them it is just that they have atrophied. It goes into depth about this topic. Some abilities that are mentioned are precognition, retrocognition and remote vision.

● The 3rd Eye - Talks about how at the front part of our pineal gland there is a complete structure of an eye there. Modern science calls it a vestigial eye but in the cultivation world they say this eye just naturally exists like that and it can be activated allowing one to pierce through this dimension and see other dimensions. It talks about how there are many levels to this 3rd eye and it goes into great depth about it.

● Thoughts - This part was amazing. It talks about how a human brain is just a processing plant. How the real you is actually your soul, it's like your whole body and brain is just a vehicle and that the true commands are issued by your master soul, but this master soul is very tiny and it can switch positions while inside you and it can also expand and shrink. It can move from your brain to your heart and to other parts of your body and it is 'he' who calls the shots. Your brain is just the factory which your master soul sends his cosmic commands to which then create the forms of expression and communication we use such as speech, gestures, etc.

These are just a few things that are covered but there are many many other things which blew my mind when I read it because of how it resonated with some of the mystical experiences people sometimes have, especially the multidimensional nature of reality and how all of them are hidden in our day to day perceptions of the world.

If this sounds interesting to anyone you can grab a copy of the book here:

You wrote a similar post on a Reddit sub. Sounds like you really liked the book.

There are a lot of books with a lot of cool ideas and far-out claims. Are there any immediate, practical applications for any parts of what you've described to improve the discipline of remote viewing?

Please make it directly relevant for us, vs saying that we might find something interesting somewhere inside.

Hi jrb,

Yes I've also shared the book on reddit as I found the book very profound with many metaphysical and spiritual concepts explained thoroughly and scientifically (where possible).

In regards to practical application of remote viewing, the book is the theory of the practice but complimenting this is a set of 5 powerful Qi Gong exercises which strengthen and rejuvenate one's body and mind and awaken one's innate spiritual abilities. This is all explained thoroughly in the book.

The exercises are all free to download from the Falun Dafa website:

Thank you for responding. The proposed connection between energy manipulation and remote viewing sounds very theoretical and tenuous rather than proven.

Maybe you could learn how to practice remote viewing and then be able to speak from experience.

do you ever dream you're someone else?
I've run into a lot of overlap between metaphysics and viewing, usually by accident, but especially with the chakras. Thanks for the reference Elfrino. We do tend to get a lot of 'wild and wooly' in the RV field of things that aren't much related (except by being "woo" it seems), but when one finds things that are, I agree it's pretty fascinating.

From a Cultivation perspective, remote viewing and other supernatural abilities come out naturally when one diligently works on purification of both mind and body. Remote viewing is just one ability that manifests, the book mentions that many supernatural abilities begin to emerge such as 3rd eye vision and Pre/Retro cognition. These supernatural abilities however should not be sought after, the come out naturally in the due course of ones Spiritual practice. I highly recommend giving that book a read, it explains all these things in great detail.

You're welcome Red. I agree, a lot of the mystical and spiritual literature is not legitimate and it's sometimes hard to sift the wheat from the chaff. It's very exciting when one finds practices that are legitimate.

Speaking of this, there have been some scientific experiments that have been performed on Falun Dafa practitioners already with interesting results:

That same perspective is available from Theravada Buddhism and yogic texts and is not unique to Falun Gong.

Remote viewing, however, is a discipline and innate human ability. It is available to everyone regardless of faith or dogma. Even I could do it, although it wasn't really compatible with my skeptical world view.

I'll grant that I believe certain meditative exercises may make one's consciousness more open to insight, but I dispute that the intentional discipline of remote viewing naturally arises once on a certain path, as "remote viewing" is itself a path for gaining insight.
 
I wouldnt be so quick to dispel the idea that meditation or some energy exercises open up the mind to travel to distant locations. Its the long path perhaps.

Yes, there are many upright Cultivation ways that can strengthen and awaken one's supernatural abilities. I also agree with you that these abilities are innate to every person it's just that they have atrophied as mankind believes in such things less and less.

Master Li Hongzhi (the founder of Falun Dafa) addressed supernatural abilities in one of his Buddha Law lectures:
