Week 6 Progress Report

At week 6, I find the concept of religiogenesis to be especially salient. In the case of Falun Gong, the growth and emergence of a religion, movement, and cultivation group can be defined by its action and reaction. To understand Falun Gong’s role and purpose, we can find strong insight in the way it started, because the actions they take when their back is up against the wall and the government is coming for them helps to define their system of morality and the function they see themselves as having in society. In the coming weeks, I will play special attention to the formation of individual religions and cults in order to better understand them from different points of view.
