(Clearwisdom.net) Editors' note: In both Western and Chinese cultures, 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 acts that are in harmony with this principle, while doing things 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.

Wei Hesheng, Former Politics and Law Committee Secretary of Linxia City, Gansu Province, Diagnosed with Bone Cancer

Wei Hesheng, about 45 years old, Linxia City Mayor of Gansu Province and formerly the Politics and Law Committee secretary, was diagnosed with bone cancer a year ago. He is currently in a hospital in Beijing. When Wei was working as secretary of the Politics and Law Committee, he led the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. He carried out cruel tortures on many practitioners and had them sent to forced labor camps. He also extorted money from the family members of practitioners.

Kindness begets kindness while evil begets evil. This is an eternal law of the universe. We would like to warn those who are still participating in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and urge you to quickly stop your evil deeds. Please, do not follow the CCP to its grave and persecute kindhearted practitioners. Please, renounce your membership in all CCP-affiliated organizations and make up for the losses you have caused practitioners and others. That way you will have a good future.
