Scientific Research on Reiki

By // No comments:

"In USA as per a survey in 2008, 60 Hospitals directly encourage their patients to take Reiki. 800 Hospitals are teaching Reiki to 30000 people every year including doctors,nurses,medical staffs and outsiders".

"Both Dr John Zimmerman (1990) in the USA and Seto (1992) in Japan, further investigated the large pulsating biomagnetic field that is emitted from the hands of energy practitioners whilst they work.They discovered that the pulses are in the same frequencies as brain waves, and sweep up and down from 0.3-30Hz, focusing mostly in 7-8 Hz, alpha state. Medical research has shown that this range of frequencies will stimulate healing in the body, with specific frequencies being suitable for different tissues". 

"After witnessing multiple cases of cancer remission associated with a healer who did hands-on energy work, researcher Krinsley D. Bengston apprenticed with him to learn how to reproduce the healing effect. Bengston obtained 5 experimental mice with mammary adenocarcinoma, which had a predicted 100% fatality between 14 and 27 days following injection. A skeptic, Bengston treated these mice for an hour a day for 30 days. The tumors developed a “blackened area,” then ulcerated, imploded and closed, and the mice lived their normal lifespan.In these three studies, 87.9% of the energy-treated mice lived, and 100% of the control group mice died". 

"Over a 5 year period, meditators consistently had fewer than half the number of doctor visits and days in hospital, compared with controls. Hospital admission rates for medical and surgical conditions were 60-70% less in the meditating group, with 87% less with diseases of the heart and blood vessels, 55% for tumors, 73% less for respiratory disorders, 87% less neurological problems and 30% less for infections". 

"After eight days, the treated group’s wounds had shrunk 93.5 percent compared with 67.3 percent for those not treated". 

"Anxiety levels dropped 17 percent after only five minutes treatment by trained practitioners"

And the list goes on....

Swami Visuddhanada Paramhansadev(Gandh Baba)

Bholanath Chattopadhyay(Kashyap Gotra) was born at Bondul,a village in Bardhaman District,West Bengal,India on 13th March,1856.His father was shri Akhilchandra Chattopadhyay and Mother was shrimati Rajrajeswari Devi.In his childhood,Bholanath used to have great faith in god and super natural powers in built.A dog had bitten in his leg and he went to a relative’s house at Hooghly.The pain was very much that he went in to Ganges to suicide.There,he looked at a saint,performing some kriya and when ever the saint exceed his hand to the Ganges,waters came in to his hand itself.That saint stopped bholanath and completely cured him just by touching him and also prescribed a little medicine.Bholanath had that sense that he should demand something more valuable from that yogi.He wanted to be a disciple.that yogi consoled the he was not Bholanath’s Guru but, promised him to take away some other time to his master.Till then,That yogi gave a mantra and kriya to practice. 

Following some other incidents,after years,Bholanath met that yogi again at Dhaka when he was just 14 years old.That yogi took to him through air and reached a secret yogashram of highly qualified spiritual master,gyanganj.Later,Bholanath came to his name as Paramhansa Nimanand,a Bengali yogi aged about 500 years then.He took bholanath to his master,A great yogi Mahatapa about 1300 years old then.He initiated bholanath and named him as Visuddhanand.Gyanganj was like a dream land.Visuddhanandji had a tough training there and went through Brahmacharya(12 years),Dandi(4 years),Sannyasi(4 years),Tirthaswami(8 years) and after 23 years of continuous spiritual practice.He achieved Paramhansa title.

 Swamiji got married to Krishnabhamini Devi as per master’s direction when he was Visuddhananda Tirthaswami.At first,He stayed at Guskara for 30 years,earning money by astrology and homeopathy treatment.Later as per directions received from Gyanganj,Ashrams were estabilished at Bondul,Bardhaman,Puri,Varanasi and Kolkata.King of Jhalda,Raja Uddhab Singha Roy was a disciple of Swamiji,he built  an ashram at Jhalda and dedicated it to Swamiji.He had two sons and a daughter.Durgapada,Vishnupada and Bisweswari.Durgapada got married and had four sons,Manojmohon,Sarojmohon,Abanimohon and Sarosimohon.Visuddhanandji left his mortal body at kolkata ashram in 1937.

Few Incidents that I like most;

1.Once Swamiji was teaching his disciple,Upendranath Roy Chowdhury,a Police officer,

“Look upendra,the whole creation seems true,but its just an illusion of mind”

“Baba,I am watching you,is that an illusion”

“where I am?”..and Swamiji vanished.After some time he entered the room from out side.

“Upendra,Only focus on your practice,You will realize everything yourself”

Swamiji discussed that the philosophy of  hindu religion is unbeatable and to explain,he demonstrated many things,                                                                                                                           

2.In chandi,it is said that Brhamaji seated on the naval lotus of Bhawan Vishnu and Its true.Disciples asked,”How It can be possible?”

“Get a me some ganga water”

Baba laid down on the floor and with the ganga water,he was pushing to his naval side and the naval lotus came up and Lotus smell filled the atmosphere.

3.Mahamohopadhyay Jaganath Mishra came to visit swamiji at Benaras ashram.

“Baba,it is said that Lord Krishna has shown the whole universe to Ma Josoda in his mouth.Is that really possible? ”

Baba opened his mouth and asked Panditji to come closer,“now look in to my mouth”

Panditji saw mountains, seas forests and many for few minitues and the scene disappeared.

4.One day,Disciples were discussing about the battles as described in Ramayan,Mahabharata.Regarding this,Baba took a bamboo arrow and with some mantra he threw it to a tree near by.Fire suddenly caught there.Baba took another arrow and threw it to the same place and the fire disappeared.

 5.Bhusan babu,an old disciple came in to the ashram and thanked baba for saving his life.Last night,Bhusan babu was sleeping on bed and fallen down on the floor far from the bed and there were lotus aroma was filled in the air that meant baba had come.If Bhusan babu fallen down just beside the bed.The yoga danda would risked his life.

“Baba,How you saved bhusan babu’s life?he was sleeping and not asking for are on your,how it happened?”

“I am bound to save my disciple’s life.So,the guru shakti appeared at once and save Bhusan”

So,there were many incidents.Baba was very kind to his disciples.He often took away diseases from his disciples and suffered himself.His best achievement was to establish Ma Nabamundi Asan at Varanasi,Visuddhananda Kanan.He also did research works on Solar Science,Air Science,Star Science and used to demonstrate these in front of disciples.Baba left his disciples and grand sons to carry on this tradition and here my story begins when I met his grandson,Jethu,my Spiritual Master!!!


Gyanganj SIddhashram

By // No comments:

The Gyanganj Yogashram, with a perimeter of about 16 kilometres, is situated in the western region of Tibet, an upland in the Himalayas to the north of India, an upland in the Himalayas to the north of India. The ancient name of this Yogashram was “Indra Bhawan”.The ancient Ashram was renovated and restored to its prizing glory once again by Swami Gyananand Paramhasns, a disciple of Maharshi Mahatapa.Under his able administration and responsible management it started functioning properly once again under the new name of Gyanganj.All this renovation took place about seven hundred years earlier, i.e. say about 1225 A.D.

Gyanganj is an extra Ordinary spiritual training centre. The Brahmacharis, Brahmacharinis, Yogis and Paramhansas of this centre, after getting estabilished in the state of Aham-Brahmasmi roam about in the universe as, when and where they like.Yogiraj Shri Vishuddhanand had eulogized about the eminence of Gyanganj Yogashram any a time amongst his disciple.He had also described in brief at times about the supernatural experiences and power of the Yogis of this Ashram.It is some dream land beyond one’s imagination.

My Reiki Certificates

By // No comments:

Reiki is a spiritual healing method. Once received attunement from a Reiki Master,"Chakras" are empowered to enabling the participants to transfer Reiki through their palms. Everyone can feel presence of Reiki flow through their palms and can heal themselves or others throughout their lives.

From a learner’s prospective, it’s the easiest thing one can learn, apply in day to day life and have numerous benefits.

But, for a teacher’s prospective, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Like, an M.B.B.S Doctor spends four and half years in studies and one year in internship. Like an MD Doctor also spends three years in studies, treating patients, taking classes, doing research works. Same way, In Traditional Reiki/ Original form of Reiki, A Reiki Master does the same job for years before being awarded as a Reiki Master.

I have worked hard for eight long years, spent approx 3.2 Lakhs of Rupees to be a Traditional Reiki Master, a Traditional Reiki Master Teacher and finally a Reiki Grand Master, setting up my Reiki Academy. Under the supervision of my Reiki Master, I have healed hundreds of patients, taken classes in my home town, Bardhaman and surroundings like Kolkata, Sealdah, Kalyani, Durgapur, Asansol. I purchased books from abroad, studied different online articles. I have followed other Reiki Masters of different styles like, Mr.Prahlad Chandra Pattanayak, Madabusi Subramaniam, Diana Stein, Tina Taylor and also accompanied Reiki Masters in our lineage on occasions to enrich myself, filling my bag of experience and still I am working on. I also completed two years “Bachelor in Alternative Medicine “from Indian Board of Alternative Medicines. I learnt other healing methods Silva Mind Control, Buddhist meditation, Vipassana which further accelerates our natural healing capabilities. And above everything, I have practiced a lot daily for years to uplift my energy level to become a Reiki Master and then a Master Teacher.

My Reiki Master Lineage: Dr Mikao Usui, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, Mrs Hawayo Takata, Barbara Weber Ray, Maureen O Toole, Kate Nani, Paula Horan, Karl Everding, Barbara Szepan, P D Patel, P Dutta, A Kumar and myself.

My Reiki Master Teacher Lineage: Dr Mikao Usui, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, Mrs Hawayo Takata, Bethel Phaigh, Jonathon Young, Linda Anderson Brown, Tina Taylor and myself.

My Advanced Reiki Master Teacher Lineage: Mikao Usui, Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, Phyllis Furomoto, Claudia Hoffman, Joe Example, Mary Sample, Melissa Crowhurst and myself.

Above all these certificates, I think that Blessings of Baba Vishuddhananda, Gyanganj Siddhashram is unmatched to any certificate, beyond any recognition which I have as the most powerful backborne of my institute and my loving students will also going to embrace this divine grace in thier lives.

Well, That’s all for now. I believe in transparency. I hope, you would love to look at my certificates.. See you in class...

Reiki: Q & A

By // No comments:

1. What is Reiki?
Rei means “Universe”, KI stands for “Life Force Energy”.
2. Where it comes from?
Mikao Usui  of Japan received divine empowerment to heal others. He named this as “Reiki”. It flows from master to disciple through lineage.
3. What it can do?
It brings our body’s energy system in balance from imbalance, thus promotes healing for any physical or mental disease.
4. For which diseases it is effective?
It can be used for any issue. It doesn’t work on the disease, rather on the cause of disease.
5. How long it takes to cure?
Generally, offered 5 to 10 sessions. But, it may take longer or even healed in one session within few minutes where medical science has no answer.
6. How diagnosis is done in Reiki?
Reiki has self intellect what to do, where to do, how much to do. Body absorbs Reiki as much as required through a Reiki Chanel from the cosmos.
7.Is it recognized by Medical Council of India?
8.How it has come to medical practice?
Reiki has been practiced worldwide. In developed countries,  Reiki has been adopted as a good support in modern medical treatment.
Like in America_
Hartford Hospital, Brigham And Women’s Hospital, Nashua Hospital, Emerson Hospital, North Shore Medical Center Hospital, USA
In Europe-
Southampton University Hospitals NHS, Aintree University Hospitals NHS, Liverpool, Wallace Cancer Care (works with Addenbrooke’s Hospital-Cambridge University Hospitals NHS), South Tees Hospitals NHS, Middlesbrough, Newham University Hospital NHS, London, Intergrative Medicine and Digestive Center, MaryLand, Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, St Teresa’s Hospice and many more.
In India though it is not legally framed, patient party often approach Reiki healers to treat their patients at hospitals during visiting hours or in distance mode and discover faster recovery, better results.
9. What if happens, I take one session, can't continue it?
Reiki is a spiritual healing, even 5 minutes of Reiki given, it's never left the patient empty handed. It's something beyond human's understanding.

All time Bhajan Kirtan during bus journey or visiting temples rest time, Sharing different food items with each other, In other side, We are senior citizens, provided only two times north Indian meal a day, 300 kms more or less all day long bus journey, Bathing ghats were dirty in some places, hot during day time, cold at night, even night halt arrangements were not good, still we managed day after day as Narmada Parikrama is not a pleasure trip. It is a  Tapassya_Tap Saha_like to take the pain for something good.And that good would be for our ancestors,our family members and our grand children and so on. We thanked to divine for giving us the opportunity to be with it.Narmade Har!!!

 Narmada Parikrama Is Just A Matter Of Faith Or Real Boon

Mountains, Forests and Rivers are the best place for sadhus to meditate and perform their spiritual practice. Since thousand years, The banks of Ma Narmada are enriched with lots of spiritual seekers. So, the whole atmosphere is highly charged that helps the new comers to get in to deep at ease. There are many ashrams or institutions where one can learn many new things, clear their doubts for their spiritual progress. When a devotee watch other devotees doing hard practice, It motivates to perform better.
For a new comer, it is good to visit spiritual places. But, for a mature mind who has already received a direction from an enlightened Guru. It need not to go anywhere or meet any other spiritual face. Rather  It may distract from its regular practice and achieving its goal. In exceptional cases, Guru may direct its disciple to stay at some place for a period of time at some certain phase of spiritual practice.
Narmade Har!!!
