A villager from Xinbin County, Fushun City, Liaoning Province died of sudden cancer after slandering Dafa.
Two villagers, Jiang Zeng and Cong Baoan, from Hongmiaozi Township Yingying Village, hated Dafa and often slandered Dafa in the streets. Not long ago they both suffered from sudden cancer and Jaing Zeng died. Cong Baoan underwent surgery but without success. His life is still in danger.
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.
