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, or causing such things to take place by informing on innocent 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 retribution.

(Clearwisdom.net) On June 4, 2001, upon receiving reports from informer Ma Jingyao, police arrested 13 Falun Gong practitioners who were gathering to study the Fa in Ms. Wang Lanxiang's home at Majia Village, Sunji Town, Shouguang City, Shandong Province. Two days later, the police tortured two of the female practitioners, Wang Lanxiang and Li Yinping, to death.

Retribution came to the greedy informer, Ma Jingyao, four months later as his second son died suddenly of liver cancer. Before this son's death, his wife sobbed to her friends, "It was Ma Jingyao who reported [the practitioners] to the police; it was his bad deeds that brought bad fortune to the family. Otherwise my husband wouldn't have got liver cancer so suddenly." Near death, Ma's son cried and said to his friends, "Wang Lanxiang was reported [to the police] by my father, and his bad deeds affected me. I will not regret dying after I tell you the truth. Wang Lanxiang was so kind to me when she was alive." Ma's son died four months after Wang Lanxiang was tortured to death.

To all informers: Have you thought of the retribution that will come to you or members of your family when you report good people and harm their lives?
