I thought Buddhism has long but thrown away their beleives and fears of sky divinities and demons, and is more concerned about Samsara, and the adversary or tempter from within.

Although Falun Dafa is from the Buddha Law school of Cultivation, it's not Buddhism the religion. Here are a few excerpts from Zhuan Falun which expound on this point:


There have always been people in Buddhism examining what Buddha Law is. And some people think that the Law taught in Buddhism is the whole Buddha Law. But it’s actually not. The Law that Shakyamuni taught was for those ordinary people 2,500 years ago with a really low degree of civilization, they were people who’d just emerged from a primitive society and whose minds were kind of simple.

He talked about, "the Age of the Law’s End." That’s today. Modern people can’t cultivate with that Law anymore. In the Age of the Law’s End it’s hard for monks in monasteries to save even themselves, let alone save others. The Law Shakyamuni preached back then was specific to that situation, and also, he didn’t teach people everything he knew at his level about Buddha Law. And if you want to keep it from ever changing, that’s just not possible.

Society has been developing and the human mind has gotten more and more complicated, so it’s hard now for a person to cultivate that way. Buddhism’s Law doesn’t cover the entire Buddha Law—it’s just a tiny little part of Buddha Law. There are a lot of Buddhist Great Law practices that have been passed down among common folks, or passed down over the generations in a lineage-type way.

Different levels have different Laws, and different dimensions have different Laws, and all of this is the Buddha Law’s manifestation in different dimensions and at different levels. Shakyamuni also talked about there being 84,000 disciplines for cultivating Buddhahood. But Buddhism has only a dozen or so disciplines, like Zen, Pure Land, Tendai, Huayan, and Tantrism. They don’t cover the entire Buddha Law. And besides, Shakyamuni didn’t preach all of his Law, he just selectively preached the part of his Law that the people back then could grasp.



and:

What we cultivate in our practice is huge, it’s not like all those ones that imitate animal movements. What we cultivate in this practice is just immense. Back in the times of Shakyamuni and Lao-zi, all of the truths taught then were just truths within the scope of our Milky Way. Then what do we cultivate in Falun Dafa? We cultivate by following the laws governing evolution in this universe, we take the highest nature of the universe—to be True, Good, and Endure—as the standard to guide our cultivation. What we cultivate is something so huge, it’s the same as cultivating a universe.

Kali Yuga...

What is it that is cultivated then? And how would this apply to an alien agenda?

In Falun Dafa the goal is to cultivate oneself, this entails spiritual purification in the form of tempering one's will, forbearing and not retaliating when someone hurts or insults you, guarding your virtue ,raising your moral character and letting go of various attachments and desires.

Together with the powerful Qi Gong exercises which strengthen and purify one's body and mind and also strengthen one's supernatural abilities it allows a person to achieve Enlightenment or what the Daoists call attaining the Dao.

There is a chapter in Zhuan Falun that talks about this matter in depth:

Qigong is About Cultivation

Qigong has been around for ages, so just what exactly is it for? I’m going to tell you, what we have here is a Buddhist cultivation Great Law, so of course it’s for cultivating Buddhahood. And Daoists, of course, cultivate the Dao to attain the Dao. I can tell you that the idea of "Buddha" isn’t blind belief. "Buddha" is a term from Sanskrit, which is a language of ancient India. When it was brought to our China it had two words, pronounced "Fo Tuo." Some people also translated it as "Fu Tu."

Then, as it was passed around by people, and as it was handed down over the generations, we Chinese people left out one of the words and just called it "Fo." So what does this term mean in Chinese? It means "Enlightened One"—a person who’s become Enlightened by cultivating. How’s that "blind belief"?

So let’s think about it. Cultivation can bring out a person’s supernatural abilities. Six types of abilities are recognized in the world today, but there are more than just those. I’d say there’s around 10,000 true abilities. Just suppose that while sitting in place, and without moving his hands or feet, somebody could do what other people can’t do even with their hands and feet, and he could see the true laws governing every dimension of the universe, and the reality of the universe—he could see things that ordinary people can’t.

Isn’t that somebody who’s attained the Dao by cultivating? Isn’t he a Great Enlightened Being? Could you say he’s the same as an ordinary person? Isn’t he somebody who’s become Enlightened by cultivating? Isn’t it only right to call him "an Enlightened Being"? When you put it into the language of ancient India, that’s a "Buddha." And that is what it’s really about—that is what qigong is for.

The moment qigong comes up there’s always somebody who says, "Why would you want to practice qigong if you don’t have health problems?" He’s implying that qigong is just for healing, and that’s a really, really shallow understanding of it. But you can’t blame him, because a lot of qigong masters are just healing people and helping them stay fit, that stuff, they just talk about healing and fitness, and nobody is teaching higher things. I’m not trying to say their practices aren’t good. It’s actually their mission to teach things at the level of healing and fitness, and popularize qigong.

But there are a lot of folks who want to cultivate to high levels. They think about this, and they have the heart for it, but they don’t know how to cultivate themselves, and this has brought them a lot of hardship, and they’ve run into a lot of problems. Now of course, really transmitting a practice at high levels is going to involve higher things. So we’ve made a point of being responsible to society, and to all people, and the overall results of transmitting this practice have been good. Some of the things are high-level, and maybe it sounds like we’re talking about blind beliefs, but we’ll try our best to use modern science when we explain them.

When we mention certain things some people blurt right out, "blind belief." Why do they do that? Their criteria for something being "blind belief" or "quackery" is that it’s whatever science hasn’t grasped, or whatever they haven’t experienced first-hand, or whatever they think can’t possibly exist. That’s their way of thinking. So is that way of thinking correct? Can you just dismiss something as blind belief or quackery just because science hasn’t grasped it yet, or just because science isn’t far enough along to explain it yet? Aren’t these people themselves full of blind belief? And aren’t they caught up in quackery? If everybody thought that way, could science develop? Could it move forward? Society wouldn’t be able to make progress.

The things that our scientific and technological community has invented are all things that people didn’t have at one time. If those things were all thought of as blind belief, then there’d be no point in talking about progress, right? Qigong isn’t quackery. But there are always a lot of people who think it is, since they don’t understand it. But with the use of scientific instruments people have now detected on the bodies of qigong masters things like infrasonic waves, ultrasonic waves, electromagnetic waves, infrared, ultraviolet, gamma rays, neutrons, atoms, and trace metal elements. Aren’t those all concrete things? They’re matter. Aren’t all things made of matter? Aren’t other space-times made of matter? Could you call them blind belief? Qigong is for cultivating Buddhahood, so of course there are going to be a lot of profound things involved. And we’re going to explain all of them.

So if that’s what qigong is for, why do people call it qigong? It’s not really called qigong. What’s it called? It’s called cultivation—it is cultivation. Of course, it has other specific names, but as a whole it’s called cultivation. So why do people call it qigong, then? You know, qigong has been popular for over 20 years. It started as early as the middle of the Cultural Revolution, and at the end of the Cultural Revolution it began to peak. Now think about it. Back then the ultra-leftist, Maoist thought was going strong. Let’s not get into what names qigong had in prehistoric cultures.

But as this civilization of ours was developing, it went through a feudal period, so it had names that sounded pretty medieval. And the ones related to religions often had names that sounded pretty religious, like, "Dafa of Cultivating Dao," "Vajra Meditation," "Way of Arhat," "Dafa of Cultivating Buddha," "Nine-Fold Immortality Elixir Method." They were names like those. If you used those names during the Cultural Revolution, wouldn’t you have been publicly denounced? That wish that qigong masters had to popularize qigong was good, and they did it to heal the masses and keep them fit, it was to improve people’s physical conditions—that was great, wasn’t it?—but it still wouldn’t have gone over well, so they didn’t dare use those names.

So to popularize qigong, a lot of qigong masters plucked two words from The Book of Elixir and the Daoist Canon and then called it "qi gong." Some people even dig into the term qigong and research it, but there’s nothing there to study. It just used to be called cultivation. Qigong is just a new term that came along in order to suit modern people’s thinking. That’s all.

For those who wish to gain an understanding of Qigong, read on. For those who wish to practice Qigong, the following is not necessary for you to read:

Qigong is studying beyond it's ability.

What is understood loosely by current masters, will be analysed and dismantled by tomorrow's scientists.

It is not an alienation of the material. It is a necessary justice of balance. This equilibrium will maintain indefinitely. As tomorrow's masters will be extending beyond what becomes understood. As has been, will be. As qigong's mysteries become known fact, more advanced mysteries will become the study of Qigong.

I am not a master, but I have been given the opportunity to understand, as all are.

I chose to endorse the opportunity.

Knowing the path, can be done by those who do not walk it. Unfortunately, to walk the path, begets a limited view of the path. That limited view begets an acute understanding that goes beyond knowing. You negate the necessity of knowing, with that which is beyond knowledge, in feeling. Qigong masters need not "know" . They feel their "knowledge" . It is an intuition and acclimation that extends beyond normal action.

Foregoing the "knowing" you are able to interact beyond the ability of those who have to know. You are using an equal amount of resources of mind and body. To know, removes resources of ability. To extend into those realms of ability, fully, requires that you forego the resources that would be wasted on knowing.

So, true Qigong masters can perform actions beyond what anyone wishing to know can obtain.

They do not need to "know" . They feel the actions, but their "feeling" is essentially a step beyond "thought" .

If you attempt to understand, you lose the capability to "feel" and thus lose the ability to perform actions that supercede understanding.
