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.

Wang Guangqiang from Chongqing City Dies Due to Karmic Retribution

Wang Guangqiang, male, 47, resident of Longshui Town, Dazu County, Chongqing City was head of Dazu County between July 1999 and 2003. During that period of time he was a leader in persecuting Falun Gong in the county. He organized some former Falun Gong "practitioners" to criticize Falun Gong, and set up a brainwashing center in order to get special recognition by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Because he acted so viciously, he was promoted to be mayor of Rongchang County. Later, he was promoted to the CCP Chongqing Municipal Party School's general secretary. In late 2008, he died in an unknown hospital.

Tragic End for a Middle-school Principal

One city's middle school principal in Sichuan Province had acknowledged the goodness of Falun Gong. Although he didn't practice, he had witnessed its magical effects.

After the persecution of Falun Gong began, and while the CCP intensified its evil actions against Falun Gong practitioners, his attitude towards Falun Gong gradually changed--from unwillingly going along with the CCP's evil instructions, to helping the CCP to persecute practitioners. Those who understood the truth of Dafa reminded and advised him: "Don't cooperate with the CCP in persecuting Dafa, or you will suffer karmic retribution." What he said early on was, "In my position I have no alternative but to go along." Later he also said, "I'm neither against the persecution nor am I for it." In the end, however, he supported the CCP and aggressively attacked Dafa. On one occasion at a rally he swore at his school's Dafa practitioners and asked his own family to pressure Dafa practitioners. This prompted some parents to divorce and some to burn Dafa books. What was even worse, he secretly supplied the CCP with names of Dafa practitioners, causing them to suffer various types of persecution, as well as bringing much pressure to the families of Dafa practitioners.

In less than a year, this middle school principal suddenly became ill with liver cancer, and died within a month. He was only 40 years old with a good career ahead of him, and had been healthy and strong.

Death Due to Karmic Retribution for CCP Labor Group Manager

In 2003 Zhao Keming, in his fifties, the CCP labor group head for the Civil Engineering and Management Department, died for unknown reasons. Before his death, he had high fever, the cause of which was never found.

When the CCP began persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, he had written an article printed in the newspaper published by city's Civil Engineering and Management Department (CEMD). In this article he falsely reported that Ms. Lin Shulan, an employee at the pumping station under CEMD, was a Falun Gong practitioner who died because she refused medication. Many people knew that she practiced another form of qigong, which had nothing to do with Falun Gong, and it was also known that her medical costs each year were said to be no less than several thousand yuan.
