(Clearwisdom.net) 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.

Ding, an official from a village in Yingyang County, Henan Province, cursed and persecuted Dafa practitioners. Soon after this, his daughter was killed when she was hit by a motorcycle on her way to school. Later, his wife underwent an emergency operation for appendicitis. Then Ding was also forced to have the exact same operation. Later, he went into the business of breeding dogs but ended up losing 10,000 Yuan. Finally, last July, someone robbed Ding's home at knifepoint. After experiencing these mishaps, Ding finally realized what was happening. He told a Dafa disciple, "Now I believe in the existence of higher beings." He has never opposed Dafa since that day.
