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 compassionateáreminder 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 karmic retribution.

The first two of the three following examples of karmic retribution occurred in Wendeng City, Shangdong Province. The security chief of a village slandered Dafa frequently. One day after he got up in the morning, he found that one of his toes was broken - he couldn't straighten it. He spent a lot of money trying to fix the problem. He later realized that Falun Dafa is good and he should not be involved in the persecution of Dafa anymore. Soon after, his toe recovered.

A senior citizen in Zhangjiachan Township believed the deceitful propaganda about Falun Gong broadcast by Chinese media. This led him to tear down and rip up Dafa posters. He later became ill, and the doctor couldn't figure out what was wrong. Tragically, he soon passed away.

A security chief in a fishing village in Northern China was involved in persecuting Dafa disciples. His son broke his leg in a motorcycle accident. On June 1 of this year, lightning struck his house and left two holes on the wall and a huge hole in his bed. Hopefully, he will enlighten to the principle of karmic retribution in the near future.
