Preventive Measures to Keep You Safe and Healthy

“Conscience is the key to a successful life.” ~ Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze, Zhang-men-ren (grandmaster) of Tai Ji Men

Tai Ji Men Qigong Academy in Los Angeles held a joyful "Lunar New Year Gathering" online on February 20, 2022, featuring festive cultural performances, such as Celestial Officials Bestowing Blessings, rhythmic storytelling, and energetic dance to shower people with happy energy. At the beginning of the Year of the Tiger, Tai Ji Men members shared with everyone an abundance of good fortune and five treasures–health, wisdom, wealth, happiness, and joy. For this joyous occasion, Tai Ji Men received many congratulatory messages, including those from heads of state, U.S. Congress members, government officials, elected officials, experts, scholars, representatives from all walks of life, religious leaders, as well as leaders of cultural organizations and media outlets.

Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze, Zhang-men-ren (grandmaster) of Tai Ji Men, stated, “According to a Chinese saying, spring is the key to a successful year ahead. Spring is the first of the four seasons, and it ushers in a new year full of hope as everything comes to life. Planning for ourselves at this time of year and setting goals for the year can help us get off to a good start and give the new year meaning and direction. Conscience is the key to a successful life. All of our actions must be guided by our conscience. We take steps to make our plans and wishes a reality, and we continue to work toward our objectives while reviewing and improving our plans and ourselves. The accumulation of good deeds will eventually allow us to progress in life in leaps and bounds, giving our lives immense and lasting value.”
