The test subjects of the experiment were 25 American and 27 Chinese students. Each of them was shown 36 photos, and they were allowed to see each photo for 3 seconds. Each photo depicted a single subject against a realistic and complex background. For example, one photo showed a tiger the single subject in a forest the complex background.
The Falun, which they call a "law wheel", or "a miniature galaxy of spiraling energy from God", corresponds directly to the western idea of a living holy spirit presence within you. The Falun is given by a qualified spiritual teacher to a qualified student just as Christ gave "the spirit" it his disciples on Pentecost.
The Falun provides power for disciples just like the Holy Spirit does for Christians The Falun provides healing for practitioners just like the Western concept of the Holy Spirit does The Falun provides supernormal abilities just like the Holy Spirit provides "Gifts of the Spirit" to Christians.
The Falun especially provides something known as Buddha fruit, which is identical to the Fruits of the Spirit that Christians treasure: There is nothing that the Falun does not provide that the Holy Spirit does, and there is nothing that the Falun does provide that the Holy Spirit does not.
They are identical except for some minor cultural difference and ,of course, their very different names.
Assuming the Bible verse is correct that states: This is very unexpected! How could Taoism -a naturalist religion, and Buddhism - an enlightenment philosophy, possibly combine in the 21st century to produce a moving meditation so naturally aligned with 1st century Christianity?
Well, if the Bible is correct in asserting that: The Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth. Asian mystics have studied nature, spirituality, mysticism, surrendered and prayed to God for truth, etc.
Then it does seem possible that they could produce a valid enlightenment system based on the Holy Spirit that is actually helping millions to get closer to God and live a holy life, leading to real enlightenment.
I am quite frankly amazed at the depth and profundity of the teaching. We have too much theology and ritual in Christendom and not enough enlightenment and supernatural power.
