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.
Zhang Wenquan, a resident of Dawangmiao village, Suizhong County, Huludao City, Liaoning Province, frequently slandered Falun Dafa. To receive a reward, he reported Falun Dafa practitioners to the authorities. Immediately following his evil acts, he had trouble breathing, so he went to the county hospital to be examined. The hospital prescribed a supply of oxygen to help him breathe. He spent more than 1000 Yuan [Chinese currency, the monthly salary for an average Chinese urban worker is about 500 Yuan] on medical expenses, but still died shortly after returning home.
Zhang Xiude, a resident of Suizhong County, frequently slanders Falun Dafa. Because his wife and son practice Falun Dafa, he often beats and curses at them. Zhang is currently suffering from an incurable disease, and has necrosis on both sides of his leg bones-- his retribution for committing evil deeds.
