(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.

Case 1

Wang Daimin, director of the Comprehensive Administration Office in Xihu Township, Yang'gu County, Shandong Province, has been slandering Falun Dafa, illegally detaining Falun Dafa practitioners, forcefully sending them to brainwashing classes and willfully inflicting verbal and physical abuse on practitioners since July 22, 1999. Wang Daimin died in a car accident in June 2002.

Case 2

Jiao Tieyu, security head of Qianjin Village in Changqing Township, Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province, frequently reported the whereabouts of Falun Dafa practitioners to the police, for which the Township government would give him a reward of 500 Yuan per year [the average monthly income is about 200 Yuan in rural areas of China]. In the end, the construction projects that he had contracted for did not proceed very smoothly and accidents would often happen at his construction site. A few days ago, while he was constructing one of his contracted buildings, the scaffoldings he was on collapsed and he fell to the ground, almost killing him.
