The Reiki Jin Kei Do lineage was passed from Mikao Usui, Dr Chujiro Hayashi to a Japanese Zen monk, the Venerable Takeuchi. He in turn trained and initiated another Zen monk Venerable Seji Takemori, who later trained and passed on this ancient method of healing to Dr Ranga Premaratna, the present lineage bearer.
Reiki Jin Kei Do is a way of being in balance and harmony with the universal energy in one’s own life.
Jin means compassion, Kei means wisdom and Do is a way or path. The Jin Kei Do lineage is a practice of Reiki with compassion and wisdom in a balanced way, integrating all three and applying them in one’s life.
Studying these three aspects highlights how the qualities presented in the teachings of Reiki in this lineage apply to its practice.
Therefore as well as learning how to apply Reiki to one’s life, intrinsic to the practice of Reiki Jin Kei Do, is an emphasis on meditation and the development of compassion. These aspects in this lineage also enhance energy awareness.
As well as simple meditation methods Reiki Jin Kei Do students learn and practice purifying breaths. Reiki becomes a way of life rather than another healing method.
The only prerequisites for initiation and training in Reiki Jin Kei Do are: openness, desire to learn and commitment to life.
