Karuna Reiki® is a Sanskrit word used in Hinduism, Buddhism and Zen.  It translates to mean 'any action taken to diminish the suffering of others' and could also be translated as "compassionate action". 


When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one.  Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna® to everyone without distinction as we are all one.  As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit.  It is understood that Karuna® is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do.  In the same way that you would want to heal your own wounds, you would also want the wounds of others to heal.  It is stated in Buddhist literature that Karuna® must be accompanied by prana, or wisdom, to have the right effect.

Karuna® is the motivating quality of all enlightened beings working to end suffering on Earth.  They continually send unlimited amounts of healing energy and guidance to us, but not all are receptive to it.  As you develop Karuna® in yourself, you are helping others, and you will also become more receptive to the Karuna® being sent by all enlightened beings.  Thus your own healing is quickened as well.

Karuna Reiki® opens you to work more closely with all enlightened beings, including those who are physically present and those who are in spirit.

The Karuna Reiki® energy has a definite feeling to it.  It works on the emotional and spiritual levels and helps one become more grounded.  Combined with Usui Reiki, this enhances the entire healing procedure.
