[Editors' Note: In both Western and Chinese culture, the principle of karmic retribution, that is, being held ultimately accountable for one's own actions, is widely accepted. The fundamental teaching of Falun Gong is the characteristic of the universe, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." The universe will reward actions that are in harmony with this principle, while actions such as beating, torturing and murdering people will incur karmic retribution. Stated another way, good deeds will be rewarded with good, while evildoings will meet due retribution. Articles such as this one are meant as a compassionate reminder of this principle to those who would commit wrongdoing. While many of those who persecute Falun Gong are merely "following orders," the universal law requires that they, too, be held responsible for their actions, and that only by reversing their course of wrongdoing may they escape retribution.]

  • Over a dozen so-called "officials" from the Xunyang District "610 Office" (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems), Jiujiang City, Jiangxi Province beat practitioner He Daozhen badly, trying to get the source of truth-clarification materials out of her. As the first official was hitting her, he suddenly doubled over, holding his stomach and yelling that he suddenly had a stomachache. After the second thug hit her hard with a wooden plank, someone unexpectedly called him to run home right away because his son had just been admitted to the hospital critically ill. The remaining thugs looked at each other and decided to "let it go."
  • My sister's neighbor worked in a bank. He had disparaged a Dafa practitioner working in the bank and taught his son to often repeat words slandering Dafa.
