Usui Memorial in Japan

Mt. Kurama, the birthplace of Reiki

Last week I wrote about my Reiki practice. This week, I wanted to highlight the Usui Memorial in Japan, which honors the founder of Reiki. Here is an excerpt from the inscription on the memorial, as translated by Tetsuyuki Ono:

One day, Usui-Sensei climbed Mt. Kurama, where he began to do penance while fasting. Suddenly on the twenty first day from the start, he felt a great REIKI over his head, and at the same time as he was spiritually awakened he acquired the REIKI cure. When he tried it on his own body and members’ of his family also, it brought an immediate result on them.
