[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.]

Two Cases of Karmic Retribution in Jiujiang City, Jiangxi Province

Retired official Liu Anguo from the Bureau of Statistics of Jiujiang County, Jiujiang City, Jiangxi Province, had been hostile to Falun Gong and practitioners for a long time. He even reported his daughter, Liu Lirong, and other practitioners, and caused them to suffer from severe persecution. When Liu Lirong was persecuted into a fatal condition and her legs were paralyzed, the authorities of the Jiujiang City Detention Center were afraid of taking responsibility for her health, fearing she would die, and sent her back home. Liu Lirong was driven out of her home by her father right after a small improvement in her health. She was taken care of by fellow practitioners, but after learning of this, Liu Anguo reported on his daughter and the practitioners, so Liu Lirong was sentenced to prison. Since that time, Liu Anguo broke his hip in 2002, suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and severe after-effects in May 2003. He suffered broken bones near his bed just after returning home from the hospital, and fell in his own bathroom this September, sending him back to the hospital. He could no longer take care of himself.
