A NOTE ON THE REIKI KANJI



Most of us are aware of the word 'Reiki' as it is generally written in Japanese kanji:

Rei
Ki


However, many people do not realise that Usui Sensei would never have actually written the word 'Reiki' using
this particular 'kanji-pair'.

Why not?

Simply because these two kanji did not actually exist in this form during Usui Sensei's lifetime.

They only came into being in the 1940's - when the Japanese government, in an attempt to modernise the kanji writing system, simplified the shapes of a great many kanji - thus making them easier to learn and quicker to write.

In Usui Sensei's lifetime, the word 'Reiki', in kanji form, was written thus:


Rei
Ki
