• We strive to improve the mind and body, and maintain optimal health by means of Reiki
• We strive to live a healthy and peaceful daily life.
• We continue on persistently, through Reiki practice, to cultivate and uplift spirituality and the whole being so as to attain the ultimate objective of Reiki Ryoho, i.e., “the absolute INNER PEACE” or “Satori” (“Anshin Ritsumei” in the terms of Usui Sensei).
“GO PLACIDLY IN THE MIDST OF PRAISE AND BLAME!“
誉められても、(Homerare temo) Although praised
貶されても、 (Kenasare temo) Although blamed
平然と歩め、(Heizen to ayume) Placidly go
歩め！(ayume!) and go!
The words “Praise or blame” represent the world of duality, or of temporal pairs of opposites, that is our objective reality. That is to say, the world of good/evil, gain/loss, success/failure, victory/defeat, strong/weak, rich/poor, young/old, man/woman, up/down, right/left, birth/death, and all that.
“Go placidly in the midst of ” means that we transcend or rise above the world of duality, not escaping from it, not getting attached to it, not rushing hither and thither, so that we can walk on calmly and peacefully.
A question arises: How can we transcend the world of the pairs of opposites?
The answer is mentally speaking — to let go of the duality or not to get attached to it.
And physically speaking — to enjoy a cup of tea.
When it comes to a taste of tea, there is duality, good or bad. However, in an act of having a cup of tea there is no good/no bad, no gain/no loss, no success/no failure, nothing but the world of oneness, or non-separation. While we enjoy a cup of tea we are in time and space of calm and peacefulness beyond the duality, and that is a state of Satori or enlightenment.
“Even as a solid rock is unshaken by the wind, so are the wise unshaken by praise or blame.”
Buddha, Dhammapada 6/81

“Traditionally Reiju 靈授 (initiation) is given in person; face to face.
“Touch” (the laying-on of hands) plays a pivotal role in Reiju process; a series of things we do in order to achieve a particular result. Touch in the form of the laying-on of hands is to impart the healing energy and information to Reiki Ryoho students. There is an unbroken succession of Teachers and Shihans, linked by the sacred touch of Reiju ritual, right back to the founder, Usui Sensei.
Reiju with “touch” — a visual symbol of an unseen transmission of not just of the healing energy but also of the information. Touch is a means of communication, an expression of unity, a bonding of people. It is a key to giving and receiving information and to help us bond.
Is “distant (online) Reiju “possible?
Theoretically it seems possible, for there exists a distant healing in Reiki Ryoho systems. And yet we need to understand that sending Reiki energy from a distance to someone and passing (imparting) Reiki energy and the information on to another is a different story, and that the distant Reiju does lack an important and pivotal factor, that is, “TOUCH.” The pivotal factor of a good old tradition: “in person Reiju” and “touch” must be maintained.”
Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei’s statement from July, 2020.

During Reiki Ryoho (Japanese Healing Art) sessions, some practitioners can be more sensitive than others, some may even feel byosen before a treatment starts. Some have psychic abilities and are able to hear, see or sense things that most people do not. If we experience all that, naturally we are tempted to think that we are doing the healing. We start to analyse what we feel, hear and see. We try to work out where the energy should go and what would be the best way to cure a disease or malfunction of the recipient – all because we sincerely want to help.
Often the question arises: What should we do when we became so sensitive, when we see and hear things, or feel pain in our body or strong hibiki in our hands?
Inamoto Sensei says: “It is all very personal, some people are more gifted than others, more sensitive or skilful. Not everyone has to have such gifts or abilities. It can be very helpful to sense imbalances or health disorders in recipients, but basically, we don’t need anything like that. We are here just to place our hands.”
Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei reminds us that: “Japanese Healing Art of Reiki Ryoho is not about doing or thinking. It is about SURRENDER 100% to the Universe. As Reiki Ryoho practitioners, we DO NOTHING and THINK NOTHING in the way of healing. Reiki knows where to go and how to heal for the highest good of the person. We need to be the purer (cleaner) Reiki channel (conduit) possible. Less ego, more room for love — the healing energy of the Universe.”
Inamoto Sensei’s advice to us is: “Do not get attached to your sensations. Your ego and self-clinging are an obstruction in the channel for Reiki healing energy to travel through. Keep your practice simple: Place your hands, surrender and smile. Reiki Ryoho is the art of surrendering.”

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, people all over the world have been struggling with all kinds of health issues and mental, emotional and spiritual disorders. Naturally, as Reiki Ryoho (Japanese Healing Art) practitioners, we want to do all we can to serve and support others. We may now be offering distant Reiki healing more often, individually or as part of a group.
Questions often arise around permission and distant healing. Are we allowed to do distant healing without permission? Should we inform recipients? Is it appropriate to send Reiki to someone without asking them? Could it cause bad karma?
Actually, the answer might be quite simple. Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei always says: “Reiki is the energy of the Universe. It is Reiki that does the fine job of healing. Reiki always works for the highest good of recipient”.
Inamoto Sensei reminds us that we do nothing in the way of healing. As Reiki Ryoho practitioners, we put our ego aside and just surrender to Reiki.
When asked about his own practice, approach, Inamoto Sensei usually answers: “I do distant Reiki healing with permission and without permission. Sometimes we cannot get it, especially when the person is in a coma or emergency room or just simply uncontactable”.
His advice to us is: “Follow your heart — your kokoro. If you feel more comfortable with permission, please ask for permission. But if it’s not possible to get a permission, remember that Reiki always works for the highest good with permission or without permission. Trust Reiki”.
