“Tantra of the lightning Flash”

Kukai (774-835), Hui-Kuo (746-805), Amonghavajra (Pu-Kung) (705-774), Nagarjuna, Vajrabodhi (670-741), Subhakarasimha (637-735) and other predecessors from India were masters of Esoteric Buddhism. All these prominent learned men were familiar with Buddhist Sanskrit Texts, naturally they had knowledge of “Tantra of the Lightning Flash’, and transmitted to their students. Emperors respected these men and had received “Abhiseka” and blessings.

Kukai returned to Japan as adviced by Hui-Kuo in 806.  Kukai’s vision was vast. He not only wanted enlightenment for himself in this life but also showed the way for enlightenment to other, right now in this life. He was magnanimous and truely enlightened person. Kukai had excellent analytical mind and through knowledge of Buddhist Shastras, as such he was able to convince his ideals and goals by powerful arguments in his religious works (Books). For enlightenment, he had extensively refered Mahavairocana sutras and Vajrasekhara sutras and for suffering and physical & mental diseases he had refered to medicine King Buddha. During his last several years he was number one Esoteric Buddhist Acharya and Religious Advisor to the Emperor. He had achieved his all goals and Reiki (Tantra) had manifested during his life time in China and Japan. It appeared from his works that he had through knowledge of “Tantra of the Lightning Flash” and must have taught to his dedicated disciples.

“Tantra of the Lightning Flash” Originated 2600 years ago from the lips of Shakyamuni Buddha and was written down in Sanskrit. It is still not known from Kukai’s works that who and when brought “Tantra” to china from India. It is clear that Kukai took Chinese version from China, as several very good translators were available in those days, to Japan and he must have translated into Japanese as both Usui and Lama Yeshe recovered Japanese version. Somehow Reiki disappeared every where and after 1300 years it again manifested for humanity through Dr. Mikao Usui. Certainly in 20th and 21st century we are very fortunate to have Reiki for physical and emotional problems and we are ever thankful to Dr. Mikao Usui and Lama Yeshe.

Usui had given mandate to his disciples chujiro Hayashi and Kioshi Itami Watanabe to protect and propagate traditional (Palms on) Reiki and Tantra MDR, respectively, at any cost. Hyashi had vision and anticipated that Japan would be destroyed in the war with western countries. In order to save Reiki, he had gradually trained Hawaya Takata, declared her as Reiki Grand Master before his transition. Hwaya Takata went back to Hawai, protected and propagated Reiki for 45 long fruitful years around the world till 1980. Watanabe also had vision and anticipated his death in war as he was a military Medical Doctor. He had packed “Tantra” and Usui’s valuable biography, notes, events, travels, lectures etc. and hand written copy of his last letter to his students in a wooden box. He died in war with the U.S.A. in 1944. “The Box” had ultimately reached to Lama Yeshe in 1994. This is how Reiki had manifested and protected in recent years through Hawaya Takata and Lama Yeshe.

Not only Shakyamuni Buddha gave “Tantra” for the benefit of suffering beings 2600 years ago, but also protected all these years and manifested (revealed) when the need was great. So again after 1300 years we received Reiki through Usui-Hayashi-Hawaya Takata-Paula Horan and Medicine Dharma Reiki through Usui-Watanabe-Lama Yeshe. Reiki is spiritual science and its healing energy has helped and helping millions of human beings all over the world at physical, mental and emotional levels. We heartily thank past and present teachers who brought Reiki to our hearts and hands at use/able level.

Amonghavajra (Pu-Kung) first received transmission from Vajrabodhi in China, then, visited Acharya Nagabodhi in South India and acquired completely Vajrasekhara sutra and went back to China. It is said that Nagabodhi lived eight hundred years. All these information indicated that original Sanskrit Text of “ Tantra” may still exist in South & North India, Nepal, Tibet, China and Japan. Usui also wanted original Sanskrit texts from India and Tibet and he had sent 100 gold british sovereins to his friends and promised more. He had trust in his friends from India and Tibet. He belived that secret texts existed which were not promulgated in the rest of the world.

India Food For Thought

'This must be read by every Indian. Please read this article. Even if u don't do anything about it, try to see the point a man who has grown from nothing, has to make! Mr. APJ Abdul Kalaam's speech in Hyderabad.


I have three visions for India. In 3000 years of our history people from all over the world have come and invaded us, captured our lands, conquered our minds. From Alexander onwards, the Greeks, the Turks, the Moguls the Portuguese, the British, the French, the Dutch, all  of them came and looted us, took over what was ours. Yet we have not done this to any other nation. We have not conquered anyone. We have not grabbed their land, their culture, and their history and tried to enforce our way of life on them. Why? Because we respect the freedom of others, that is why my first vision is that of FREEDOM. I believe that  India got its first vision of this in 1857, when we started the war of independence.

It is this freedom that we must protect and nurture and build on. If we are not free, no one will respect us. ! My second vision for India is DEVELOPMENT. For fifty years we have been a developing nation.

It is time we see ourselves as a developed nation. We are among top 5 nations of the world in terms of GDP. We have 10 percent growth rate in most areas. Our poverty levels are falling! Our achievements are being globally recognized today. Yet we lack the self-confidence to see ourselves as a developed nation, self-reliant and self-assured. Isn't this incorrect? I have a THIRD vision; India must stand up to the world. Because I believe that unless India stands up to the world, no one will respect us. Only strength respects strength. We must be strong not only as a military power but also as an economic power. Both must go hand-in-hand. My good fortune was to have worked with three great minds. Dr. Vikram Sarabhai of the Department of space, Professor Satish Dhawan, who succeeded him and Dr. Brahm Prakash father of nuclear material.

I was lucky to have worked with all three of them closely and consider this the great opportunity of my life. Why is the media here so negative? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? We are such  a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why? We are the first in milk production. We are number one in Remote sensing satellites. We are the second largest producer of wheat. We are the second largest producer of rice.

Look at Dr. Sudarshan; he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit. There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters. I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was this day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert and into an orchid and a granary. It was the inspiring picture that everyone woke up to.

The gory details of killings, bombardments, deaths, were inside in the newspaper, buried among other news. In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime. Why are we so NEGATIVE? I was in Hyderabad giving this lecture, when a 14-year-old girl asked me for my autograph. I asked her what her goal in life is: she replied: I want to live in a developed India. For her, you and I will have to build this developed India. You must proclaim. India is not an under-developed nation; it is a highly developed nation. Allow me to come back with vengeance. Got 10 minutes for your country? YOU say that out Government is inefficient.

YOU say that our laws are too old. YOU say that the municipality does  not pick up the garbage. YOU say that the phones don't work, the railways are a joke, the airline is the worst in the world, and mails never reach their destination. YOU say that our country has been fed to the dogs and is the absolute pits. YOU say, say and say.
What do YOU do about it? Take a person on his way to Singapore. Give Him a name - YOURS. Give him a face - YOURS. YOU walk out of the airport and you are at your international best. In Singapore you don't throw cigarette butts on the roads or eat in the stores. YOU are as proud of their Underground Links as they are. You pay $5 (approx.Rs.225/-) to drive through Orchard Road (equivalent of Mahim Causeway or Pedder Road) between 5 PM and 8 PM. YOU comeback to the parking lot to punch your parking ticket if you have over stayed in a restaurant or a shopping mall irrespective of your status identity. In Singapore you don't say anything, DO YOU?
YOU wouldn't dare to eat in public during Ramadan, in Dubai. YOU would not dare to go out without your head covered in Jeddah. YOU would not dare to buy an employee of the telephone exchange in London at 10 pounds (Rs.900/-) a month to, "see to it that my STD and ISD calls are billed to someone else."YOU would not dare to speed beyond 55 mph (88 kmph) in Washington and then tell the traffic cop, "Jaanta Hai sala main kaun hoon (do you know who I am?). I am so and so's son. Take your two bucksand get lost. "YOU wouldn't chuck an empty coconut shell anywhere other than the garbage pail on the beaches in Australia and New Zealand.! Why don't YOU spit Paan on the streets of Tokyo? Why don't YOU use examination jockeys or buy fake certificates in Boston? We are still talking of the same YOU. YOU who can respect and conform to a foreign system in other countries but cannot in your own. You who will throw papers and cigarettes on the road the moment you touch Indian ground. If you can be an involved and appreciative citizen in an alien country why cannot you be the same here in India? Once in an interview, the famous Ex-municipal commissioner of Bombay Mr. Tinaikar had a point to make. "Rich people's dogs are walked on the streets to leave their affluent droppings all over the place," he said. "And then the same people turn around to criticize and blame the authorities for inefficiency and dirty pavements. What do they expect the officers to do? Go down with a broom every time their dog feels the pressure in his bowels?

In America every dog owner has to clean up after his pet has done the job. Same in Japan. Will the Indian citizen do that here?" He's right. We go to the polls to choose a government and after that forfeit all responsibility. We sit back wanting to be pampered and expect the government to do everything for us whilst our contribution is totally negative. We expect the government to clean up but we are not going to stop chucking garbage all over the place nor are we going to! stop to pick up a stray piece of paper and throw it in the bin. We expect the railways to provide clean bathrooms but we are not going to learn the proper use of bathrooms. We want Indian Airlines and Air India to provide the best of food and toiletries but we are not going to stop pilfering at the least opportunity. This applies even to the staff who is known not to pass on the service to the public. When it comes to burning social  issues like those related to women, dowry, girl child and others, we make loud drawing room protestations and continue to do the reverse at home. Our excuse?" It's the whole system, which has to change, how will it matter if I alone forego my son's rights to a dowry. "So who's going to change the system? What does a system consist of?

Very conveniently for us it consists of our neighbours, other households, other cities, other  communities and the government. But definitely not me and YOU. When it comes to us actually making a positive contribution to The system we lock ourselves along with our families into a safe cocoon and look into the distance at countries far away and wait for a Mr. Clean to come along & work miracles for us with a majestic sweep of his hand. Or we leave the country and run away. Like lazy cowards hounded by our fears we run to America to bask in their glory and praise their system. When New York becomes insecure we run to England. When England experience unemployment, we take the next flight out to the Gulf. When the Gulf is war struck, we demand to be rescued and brought home by the Indian government. Everybody is out to abuse and rape the country.

Nobody thinks of feeding the system. Our conscience is mortgaged to money. Dear Indians, The article is highly thought inductive, calls for a Great deal of introspection and pricks one's conscience too. Unquote: Let's do what India needs from us.

All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no heed to criticism.
