THE LINEAGE OF REIKI JIN KEI DO & BUDDHO

“…as we select a teacher, we join a tradition and lineage as well. Lineages are the carriers of ancient wisdom. In every great tradition, the shamans, the healers, the yogis, the wise women of the mystery schools, the great rabbis or desert fathers, live within their lineage. Lineage and tradition are the sacred containers for preserving practices and wisdom that have been discovered and accumulated over generations. Lineages are the form through which the light of awakening is passed from one generation to the next." 

JACK KORNFIELD - A PATH WITH HEART

The concept of lineage is one that is often overlooked or ignored these days, yet it is a concept that goes to the heart of esoteric Buddhism and the modern system of Reiki. 

In the lineage of Reiki Jin Kei Do, which encompasses the practice of Buddho, lineage is considered to be critical to the continuation of the tradition's teachings.
