(Minghui.org) 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 retribution.

Falun Dafa is a righteous spiritual practice which teaches people to improve themselves and return to their original, true nature by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. During the past ten years of persecution, Falun Gong practitioners have been deprived of their freedom of belief and speech. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda attacking and slandering Falun Gong has been broadcast throughout China. In order to expose the CCP's lies and persecution, practitioners have produced various truth clarification media with their own money, providing China's citizens with opportunities to learn the facts about Falun Dafa.

However, many people - especially those deeply influenced by the CCP culture, have been poisoned by the long-term propaganda. Some people destroyed the truth clarification materials, preventing others from learning the truth. A heavenly principle states that good or evil will be repaid. Those who destroyed Dafa materials have suffered various forms of karmic retribution, including broken bones, nervous disorders and other injuries. These incidents are reminders for those still committing wrongdoings to stop.

Suffering Retribution: Broken Arm After Destroying Dafa Truth Clarification Materials

I am a practitioner in Xinbin County, Fushun, in Liaoning Province. I have a neighbor who lives on the east side of our village, whom I call “Second Sister”. Her front door faces a main road and is close to a post. Practitioners often posted truth clarification materials on it, so that people could see them easily. However, the materials I posted were torn down very soon after I finished putting them up. I thought, “Who would do this? Could it be her? I explained the facts about Falun Dafa to her often, and she appeared to be very rational (but in fact, she was not in her heart). I need to find out who has done this, so that I can clarify truth to him or her. Otherwise, that person will bring harm to himself and to other people.”

Teacher’s words suddenly appeared in my mind. I then sent righteous thoughts - the person who destroyed the truth clarification materials would suffer immediate retribution, in order to awaken to the truth and stop any further wrongdoing.

About five or six days later, I went to another neighbor’s house. The “Second Sister” was also there. She had a cast on her right arm, hung in a sling made from cloth bandaging. As soon as she saw me, she said, “I went to your home and was told that you were here - I was looking for you.” I asked, “What’s the matter? What happened to your arm?” She said, “I will never do it again. I will never do it again.” She repeated the same sentence several times.

I asked, “What did you do?” She told me the story. Her daughter-in-law had given birth recently, and she asked her son to buy some sponges for the baby. For some reason, he bought three rolls of bandaging instead. Right after that, she broke her arm, and ended up needing the bandaging for a sling. She realized that this was no coincidence and took it as a hint that she should no longer destroy the truth-clarification materials.

Suffering Retribution: Developing an Unusual Disease after Destroying Dafa Materials; Cured after Reciting “Falun Dafa is Good”

Gao Jianmin is director of the Jigezhuang Village Committee in Yangchun town, Qixia, Shandong Province. Influenced by the CCP’s propaganda, he actively followed their orders. Officials from the town government and the police station often incited him to destroy any banners with “Falun Dafa is Good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Good” on them. He followed the orders and took his wife with him to tear down Dafa materials.

In 2011, his wife developed an unusual disease – her hands had continuous tremors. After seeking all kinds of medical treatment, her condition didn’t improve. During the Spring Festival in 2012, police officers asked them to tear down truth clarification materials again. His wife was alert to this issue and said, “Ask the committee secretary to do it. You can’t just ask us!”

The local practitioners learned about her situation. They clarified the truth to her and told her, “You need to sincerely apologize to Teacher Li Hongzhi. From now on, if you treat Falun Gong kindly and recite sincerely 'Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good', you will be okay.”

She followed the practitioners' advice and sincerely recited, “Falun Dafa is good!” She also earnestly said to Teacher, “Please forgive me. I will never do that again!” Then, miraculously, her hands stopped shaking. The disease that she'd suffered from for over half a year was cured.

Deep Cut to Finger After Destroying Dafa Materials

Another occurrence of retribution was experienced by the husband of a practitioner from Xinbin County, Fushun, in Liaoning Province. He is an instructor in a middle school and also a CCP member. Due to the CCP's long-term poisonous policies of atheism and propaganda, he developed hatred towards Falun Gong.

Around 2003, this practitioner wanted to explain the facts about Falun Gong to her husband. She placed a Falun Gong flyer on their bed so that he would read it. However, after reading it, her husband tore it into pieces and told the practitioner angrily, “You'd better not do this anymore.” One day later, they went to the rural country to visit their families. While he was cleaning the house, he opened a drawer and saw a rusted knife. He wanted to sharpen it, but the knife cut deeply into his right thumb and the bleeding wouldn't stop. Fortunately, the neighbor was a doctor and helped him to treat the wound, but it still took a long time to stop the bleeding.

His hand was in pain the whole night after he returned home. The next day, he went to the hospital to receive an intravenous injection. Meanwhile, he developed diarrhea, and it turned out that he was also allergic to the medication. His legs were so swollen that he couldn't move. His finger hurt the whole week. He was bedridden and needed his wife to take care of him that week; it took a long time for him to recover.

When he was better, this practitioner told him, “Look, after you tore up the Falun Gong flyer, how much you have suffered? Falun Gong is the Buddha Fa! The content in the flyer is all true, and is meant to save people. You can never do that again!”
