 do not worry

 Honour your parents, teachers and elders
Be honest in all your dealings
Show gratitude to every living thing 


 The founder of Reiki  

 Mikao Usui  (1865-1926)


Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of Reiki, developed the five precepts shortly after he decided to leave the Beggars Quarter of Kyoto. He went there to start sharing Reiki, because he felt they needed it more than others in the world. It was at this time that he became aware of some important aspects of human nature....


The five precepts that Usui taught emanate naturally from a person in his or her proper flow. At the same time, trying to live the precepts also helps put a person in that flow, because, what you think is truly what you are.
