Reiki is the gift from Gautam, the
Buddha. Reiki finds its roots in “Tantra
of the lightning Flash”. The Tantra of the lightning
Flash, a Tantra, was dictated by Shankyamuni Buddha to a
contemporary householder and physician in Varanasi, India. The scripture came to
Japan in the eighth century. Kukai
(774 – 835 C.E), also known as the
“Kobo Daishi”, brought the
manuscript from Mainland
China where he had studied the text and its practices under the
guidance of master Hui-ko
(746 – 805 C.E). Dr. Usui Mikao found this ancient manuscript in a
used bookstore in Kyoto in 1896. It gave a new light to his mind.
He was immediately motivated to study the text to work with the
practices until he had mastered them. With inspiration gained from
“Tantra of the lightning Flash”,
Dr. Usui Mikao developed a
hands on, healing system that was able to tap into the divine
healing energies of Medicine king Buddha and apply these energies to
the patient. He applied his techniques to his patients. He decided
not to limit it to only Buddhists. He created simple practice by
the use of symbols and innovations, which may be applied to everyone
regardless of religion or beliefs. He coined the name Reiki.
