I received my REIKI Mastership in year 2000 in India.
' REIKI ! originated in Tibet thousand of years ago. The Tibetan monks had mastered the science and art of tapping Universal Life Force Energy for man's healing and self-transformation to eventually lead to spiritual enlightenment. It was taught only to a selected and disciplined few.
REIKI was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Christian theological scholar and teacher, who in the mid 1880's, after responding to a challenge from several of Graduate students about how Jesus healed, undertook an extensive study of the healing phenomena of history's greatest spiritual leaders. In the Buddhist writings he found the REIKI healing technique and spent the latter part of his life applying and teaching this knowledge.
REIKI reached the western world in the late 1970's through Mrs. Hawayo Takata.
Since then, tens of thousand of people have received REIKI worldwide.
NAVIN Joshi was born in India in 1957. His native place is in the foot hills of Himalayas.
I come from a family of spiritual preachers and artists. I do not have formal education in art, except that spiritual work required to paint symbols ,figures of deities and decoration of temples and mandalas.
I have received extensive education on use of Computer Software for Drawing, Painting, Coral Draw and Photoshop.
I do not consider writing and painting as my source of earning. These were started as a process of meditation and websites like ZAZZLE.COM and ART.COM allowed me to upload my paintings for online sale. At my ZAZZLE store, the art is also available for print on gifts like Greeting Cards, Fridge Magnet and Key Chains etc.
I am very happy with my life. I have retired from regular job at age 56 and currently take life leisurely. I spend little time to ART and writing and spend most time reading, listening music and meditating on spiritual matters.
