Karma in Falun Dafa

Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) is a specific subset of Buddhism, originally founded by Li Hongzhi. Its primary symbol is the Falun, which roughly translates to "Wheel of Law," according to FalunDafa.org. Within the wheel are two major symbols - the ying yang and the srivasta. Although a sect of Buddhism, Falun Dafa's views on karma vary from its typical perception.

In Falun Gong, karma is a "black substance" and is regarded as the opposite of virtue. Whereas other teachings see karma in terms of good and bad, in this religion it is what humans produce when performing unsavory acts. When you throw a punch, you are producing karma. It's eliminated through sickness and other hardships you may encounter in life.

You can also remove karma through your master, who can help. However, according to the source, demonic interference makes it all but impossible for one to be completely free of karma. You cannot live a life entirely without wrongdoing, and demons will occasionally turn up to collect on this karmic debt.
