Mikao Usui was born in Japan in Taniai-Mura near Tokyo August 15, 1865.
Buddhist sect of the “Pure Land”, disheartened for a moment he was going through a very difficult period, decided to go for a period of meditation on Mount Kurama, a sacred and home to several Buddhist schools. It was during one of these meditations that created the awareness of the Universal Energy and the power of Reiki.
Usui Reiki Ryoho experienced the effectiveness of the method imposition of hands, first on his family, then shared this knowledge with others.
Usui founded in 1922 in Aoyama (Tokyo District) “the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai”, a school for the practice and teaching of Reiki discipline, gaining much popularity for the effectiveness of its system. In a short time he opened other schools in Japan, until, March 9, 1926 Mikao Usui left the body.
After the death of the Usui Gakkai, the school founded by Master, changed sostenzialmente policy, focusing on the maintenance of the system and neglecting the purpose of distribution. It closed on its participants and almost after the general destruction suffered by Japan in World War II, to disappear completely.
Today the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai has a national headquarters and a few dozen members all in old age.
The spread of the discipline in the world was thanks to a student of Usui, Hayashi Chyujiro the naval officer.
The Mestro Hayashi partly modified the discipline, he opened his school Reiki, and formed a number of teachers of which only two were women: his wife and Suzuki Hawayo Takata, the latter spread Reiki to the United States with variations that could be more suited to Americans and Westerners. Mrs Takata goes the merit of having spread Reiki in the West.
The traditional discipline, however, was not forgotten. Several Masters fact, students Hayashi, Japan continued in the work of spreading, although the Western style of Takata (now also widespread in Japan) had definitely increased visibility and expansion.
Among the students there was Mrs. Hayashi Chijoko Yamaguchi. She learned from the Master the first and the second level at the age of only 19 years. Not being able to get the mastery because of young age, Ms. Yamaguchi received, however, the level teacher by his uncle (who was also formed with Mestro Hayashi) who needed an assistant.
Student of the now elderly lady Yamaguchi was the Rev. Inamoto Hyakuten that began richercare verifiable sources to be able to go back to the traditional and original of Master Mikao Usui, hitherto not yet available to everyone.
Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto is the founder of the school Komyo Reiki Kai – Japanese style and Master directed by Monica Giovine
