Karma & Virtue

In both Western and Chinese culture, the principle of karmic retribution—that is, ultimately being held 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 behavior that is in harmony with this principle, while acts that go against this principle will incur karmic retribution. Stated another way, good deeds are rewarded while evildoings will incur due retribution.
