The Meaning of Karuna

Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translated to mean any action that is 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 because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, 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 also stated in the Buddhist literature that Karuna must be accompanied by parjna or wisdom in order to have the right effect.

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

Karuna Reiki opens you to work more closely with all enlightened beings. This includes those enlightened ones who are physically present as well as those in spirit.

The symbols can be used just like other Reiki symbols when giving Reiki treatments. When teaching, you can teach the whole method in one 3 day weekend as discribed above as long as your students are already Reiki Masters. Or Karuna Reiki® can be divided into four levels - two practitioner levels and two Master levels. A requirement for taking any of the Karuna practitioner levels is ART or what is also called Reiki 3a. By having and using the Usui master symbol for treatments, it causes the student to be able to hold more healing energy and thus get greater benefit from the Karuna training. Also, it is important that the student realize that Karuna training is not a substitute for Usui Reiki, but the next step after it.

In level one, teach the first four symbols from Karuna I, give the practitioner attunement for them and time to practice their use. In level two, teach the second four symbols from Karuna II, give the attunement for them and time to practice. If the person is already a Reiki Master, you can go on to level three by giving the Master attunement for Karuna I , show how to do the attunements for Karuna I, and practice doing the attunements. In level four, give the Karuna II Master attunement, show how to do the attunements for Karuna II, and then practice doing the attunements.
