the beggars and help them lead a better life. He worked
for seven years in an asylum treating many illnesses.

that he had forgotten something of great importance in
his healing work, namely to teach the beggars GRATITUDE.

life written on his gravestone. It is said that his
grave was honored by the Emperor of Japan. One of Usui's
closest collaborators, Dr. Chijiro Hayashi, took his
place, becoming the second Reiki Grand Master in a line
of tradition. He ran a private Reiki clinic in Tokyo
until 1940, where unusually severe illness and disease
could be treated with Reiki. This clinic was where
Hawayo Takata of Hawaii first received Reiki treatments
that would later lead her to study with Dr. Hayashi.
Takata returned to Hawaii after her studies and was made
a Reiki Master by Hayashi when he visited the Island in
1938. Upon his death in 1941, Takata succeeded Hayashi
as Grand Master herself when she was about seventy-four
years of age, initiating 21 Reiki Masters to carry on
the great work. On December 11, 1980, Hawayo Takata
passed to the higher side of life, leaving 22 Masters in
the United Stares and Canada.
