The Original Principles Formulated by Usui Sensei: Dr. Mikao Usui the founder ofReiki Ryoho, adopted five admonitions to live by from the Meiji Emperor, that if applied with Reiki, would heal the body, bring peace of mind, and hapinness in life. Following are those admonitions, taught as the Reiki Principles, Precepts or Ideals. It is interesting to see the variations from the various Reiki Organizations, even in the translated version.

From Usui Sensei`s memorial: ...when it comes to teaching, first let the student understand well the Meiji Emperor`s admonitory, then in the morning and in the evening let them chant and have in mind the five admonitions which are:
• Don`t get angry today.
• Don`t be grievous.
• Express your thanks.
• Be diligent in your business.
• Be kind to others.
from the original document in Usui Sensei`s handwriting.
