Karuna is a Sanskrit word, which is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the sufferings of the self and of others. It could also be translated as a “Compassionate Action”. Karuna Reiki is a form of Reiki that is effective enough to heal the deep-rooted past-life issues with compassion and awareness. This healing cultivates the compassion in a being, which can be extended towards self and others. Compassion has the power to break all the barriers that an individual creates around him in an illusion of his protection from the external world. These barriers make a person non-receptive; and as a result, energies become incapable of producing the desired results. Karuna Reiki gently removes these barriers and permits a person to receive the compassionate healing energies of the Cosmos.
