ReiKi Code - the international bestseller from renowned
Japanese Cultural Historian and acclaimed Reiki Researcher, Jan
skillfully written account of conspiracy, mis-information, intrigue,
menace, cover-up, and Taisho-era politics. Exhaustively researched.
Masterly and insightful. A must-read for everyone connected with
the Art of Reiki.
Within pages of The ReiKi Code you will discover:
from the outset, the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai - hailed as the 'Keepers
of the Flame' of Usui-sensei's Gift - actually preserved an intentionally
corrupted version of his teachings.
the author believes that the modern-day Gakkai might actually
be a recently 'restablished' society - in much the same way that,
in the West, long-defunct esoteric orders have been re-established
by those with no direct connection to the originals. Or alternatively,
how the modern-day Gakkai's supposed existance may be nothing
more than a convenient 'mechanism' invented to 'lend weight' to
certain individuals personal views concerning the nature and practice
will learn that, contrary to what has been suggested, Usui sensei
was not a Tendai Buddhist - in fact not even a Buddhist
supposedly 'original' versions of Usui-sensei's early teachings,
apparently being taught by two exceedingly long-lived Tendai Buddhist
nuns, are - like these very nuns themselves - merely figments
of an overactive Reiki-imagination.
the term 'Reiki' has nothing to do with 'universal energy' but
rather, speaks to the healing power of the individual's Spirit/Soul
Essence - their Choku Rei ('Spirit Direct from Kami').
the real reason it was initially claimed that the symbols
were no longer used in native Japanese Reiki.
how - in an attempt by one Japanese Reiki Master to 'save face'
- the name of a popular brand of Japanese aloeswood incense accidentally
came to be presented as the allegedly 'proper' name of the Reiki
power symbol. And how a 'secret' trigger-word, claimed by some
to be the means of activating the mental-emotional symbol, was
actually borrowed from a well-known brand of Sake!
how the 1925 Chian Iji Ho (Peace Preservation Law/ Public
Security Act), was also implemented to control the growth and
activities of religious and spiritual groups considered to be
promoting 'dangerous thoughts' - i.e. ideas in any way conflicting
with, or critical of, the official views and doctrines of the
how elements of Usui-sensei's teachings may have been seen to
fall within this category.
why Usui-sensei's Spiritual Healing Group was deemed a shûkyô
ruiji dantai ('quasi-religious organization') - and as
such, fell under the control of the Japanese Home Ministry. How
it was, to all intents and purposes, taken over by officers of
the Imperial Navy, who had been assigned the task of 'realigning'
its activities, aims and objectives.
Learn the real reason for the introduction of the practice
of chanting Meiji Poetry at 'Reiki Meetings'.
Discover the secret subtext in the documents such as the Reiki
how Usui-sensei may not actually have died in 1926, as is commonly
believed. How dates and age references given in the text of the
Usui Memorial, hint at this.
Discover the correct ordering of the Reiki symbols and
learn about the true significance and function of each
individual symbol - newly disclosed insights that show the symbols
in their true light - not merely as 'energetic tools', but as
vital keys to the very Spiritual Core of Usui-sensei's Gift.
how, conscious that essential elements of his teachings were being
'reworked' so as to support beliefs and practices more in keeping
with the State ethos - and that under threat of imprisonment as
a 'thought criminal' he was powerless to protest - Usui-sensei
decided to pass on the core teachings concerning the Reiki 'Phenomenon'
solely to his wife and children.
while his original philanthropic intentions had been to share
his 'Spiritual Method' (of Healing) with the world, he eventually
came to the conclusion that the only way to preserve the True
Spirit of Reiki was to keep the Spiritual Lineage of the
'Gift' within his own Blood Line...
And all this is just a taster of what awaits the reader
within the pages of the astounding piece of scholarly research
that is 'The ReiKi Code...
what the critics have to say*
to put down...
even an A-list thriller-writer could make up something like this...
absorbing; possibly the most controversial piece of Reiki-investigation
intriguing volume is cram-packed with amazing historical detail...
engrossing read - it provides rich food for thought...
You will never look at Reiki in the same way again...
enthralling read that at once informs, educates and entertains...
