(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 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.

Sudden illness caused the associate director of "610" office in Xingtai City, Hebei Province to become comatose at the prime of his life.

* Associate director Li Yaoguo of the "610" office in Xingtai City, Hebei Province was extremely aggressive in his persecution of Dafa. He persecuted Dafa practitioners with all the power under his authority. In 2001, Li Yaoguo deliberately and illegally extended detention terms of Dafa practitioners by one month. Retribution came soon after this and other acts of persecution. In May 2002, Li Yaoguo suffered a massive stroke at the age of only 36. Doctors could not save him even after he spent more than 10,000 Yuan for treatment. He was totally paralyzed.

Several cases of karmic retribution for ruffians in Yushu City, Jilin Province:

He finally realized his mistake, but it was too late.
