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 karmic retribution.

  1. You Guifa at the Flour Factory of Farm 597 notified the police that Falun Gong practitioners were spreading Falun Gong materials. In June his son-in-law, over 40, suddenly died of a cerebral hemorrhage while traveling. His wrong deed affected his family.
  2. Du Xiaolin, the head of Farm 597's Police Station has been actively involved in the illegal persecution against Falun Gong practitioners. Now his wife is seriously ill, requiring major operations which cost a lot of money. His father, Du Wanfa, was the secretary of the Political and Legal Committee. Du Wanfa was directly involved in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners, and he has been dismissed from his position for breaking the law while in office.
  3. In late July, Falun Gong practitioners in Farm 597 were brutally persecuted. The former Falun Gong assistant was secretly sent to Farm 835. Fourteen Falun Gong practitioners were sent to the Hongxinglong Detention Center. At 4:00 p.m. on the day when the assistant was secretly sent away, a rarely occurring tornado developed in the sky above Farm 597. The tornado accompanied by hail, lasted half an hour. All the crops in the path of the tornado were destroyed. Even the vicious police of the detention center said: "Heaven is angry."
