Would you believe me if I told you that you can:
1. Cut 70% of your bad karma (we've all got a lot of that!)
2. Increase your concentration and creativity (I topped my medical
transcription course where they compress 6 years of medical school
into three months and expect you to get more than 80% in every
3. Get protection from accidents (I emerged from a head-on collision
without a scratch. Hubby suggested I wear a helmet to hide my pretty
face. I contemplated the veiled robes of a Muslim woman to hide all of me.)
4. Feel like you've done an hour of meditation in just three minutes
(I've done TM and tried to fly - but that takes ages of practice say
5. Look even more beautiful dead than alive. (You see, the soul exits
from the true gate of the soul -the Third Eye, so at death there is no
rigor mortis and the face is radiant- it happened to someone I once
knew. The puzzled doctors were called in to check if she were really
dead. She was.)
6. And the price? While the enlightened had to climb mountains on
their knees, allow themselves to get buried in the snow, and one even
offered his arm, all you need to offer is a small offering! In India, it is as
little as Rs.1000/- per person.
It may sound incredible to you, but I assure you this is no
hallucination. I don't smoke joints anymore. Sensei told me to smoke
joss sticks instead, and now I have a preference for joss sticks. I was
introduced to the Kyudo Ceremony more than a year ago by my Reiki
Master and it changed my life.
Many supermodels these days claim to enhance their looks through
spiritual means. I believe that as your character changes for the
better, so does your aura. This in turn affects the way you look. You
are more charismatic, more radiant. That first grey hair or wrinkle
matters no more.
Science and spirituality are discovering they share much in common.
Consider the wonders of quantum physics: parallel worlds, invisible
worlds,other dimensions,the power of thought.
Undergoing the Kyudo Ceremony is in no way a conversion of any sort.
You are free to follow your religion and your customs. Indeed, you can
even let off a few crackers on Diwali in this temple. Homage is paid to
all enlightened souls -Jesus,Shiva, Brahma, Gandhiji, the Laughing
Buddha or Maitreya Buddha, and others. On Christmas, we light
candles to Christ.
The fact that the ceremony has been mentioned in the Sutras may be
checked out by anyone who finds all this too difficult to swallow. The
Buddha underwent it and said that it is equal to a 100 years of
penance and meditation. You will not find any books on Sentendaido
(the Way of Heaven). It has been kept secret all these centuries. It
originated in China even before the advent of religion and is seen as
the source of all religion.
Many of the masters or gurus of Sentendaido have been Indians. 28 to
be precise, including Bodhidharma, a South Indian. AND would you
believe it -Lao Tzu and Confucius were masters too.
Confucius say he was imprisoned and starved and still did not give up
the ship. They cut down every tree he sat under. Still he did not give
up the ship.
In ancient times, only enlightened souls like the Buddha, Christ and
Prophet Mohammed enjoyed the privilege of having the third eye
opened through the Kyudo Ceremony. Just 50 years ago, in the midst
of the II World War, did Sentendaido make itself available to people
like us. Why? Because we're lucky enough to be born in the Kaliyuga.
What's more, we don't even need to work too hard at our
enlightenment like did the ancients. 70% of our bad
karma is cut, remember? All we need to do is fill in the 30%. No need
to sit naked in the Himalayas and give up kith and kin -although at
times we all wish to.
If you've ever asked yourself what is the purpose of your life, you
have probably realised -perhaps through long and tortuous reasoning -
that it is to realise your True Self which is Divine. This Self never gets
angry, jealous or greedy. It can see into the Future. It makes peace
with the Past and lives in the Present.
The followers of Sentendaido are not monks. Niwa Sensei - who
wears a diamond necklace adorned with a locket of the Maitreya is a
very rich businessman who says that his business takes care of itself
because he follows Sentendaido. This is a fact experienced by many
who have been initiated. And of course, the Maitreya deserves
And I, certainly don't look like a monk. Though I often feel like one. I
have become a vegetarian and no longer waste precious time at
parties. But I still like red in my hair. In Sentendaido they say this is
the time to cultivate yourself while living amidst the chaos of the
world. That is probably more difficult than leaving it all behind.
More on the importance of being vegetarian and my recent trip to the
head temple in Japan, and karma and all that in the next issue.
Those of you who are reminded of Shiva's Third Eye, remember that he did
not destroy the good when he opened it. Only the Evil.
Ciao! From someone's who's been in and is now out.
