Founder of Modern Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga, Grand Master Choa Kok Sui is credited with the development of an energy healing system using more effectively and efficiently prana or ki, which is the life force that keeps the body alive. Albeit a trained Chemical Engineer and successful businessman, he spent more than 30 years researching and studying literature and books on esoteric sciences, examining and sorting through their various healing techniques, and eventually developing the concepts, principles, techniques, and practical applications of Pranic Healing as it is widely known today.

Master Choa Kok Sui and the Birth of Modern Pranic Healing

Born on August 15, 1952 in Cebu, Philippines and raised in a multi-faith environment, Master Choa Kok Sui found himself inclined to paranormal and spiritual matters from the tender age of 12. As a teenager, he spent a year doing inner purification, laying the foundation for his ventures into the spiritual path. He also lived a simple life, akin to that of a yogi, refusing the comforts that he could otherwise have easily afforded.

As a young man, Master Choa Kok Sui studied a wide range of healing arts (notably at a time when they were not yet validated as sciences), achieving a kind of encyclopedic level of knowledge on the subject matter. He studied under spiritual guides, who themselves were spiritually advanced and extraordinarily powerful healers, and whose guidance were inevitably crucial to the development of Modern Pranic Healing.

(As he treaded further on his spiritual path) In his spiritual journey, Master Choa Kok Sui made close associations with yogis, healers, clairvoyants, practitioners of Chinese chi kung (the art of generating internal power), and persons who were in telepathic contact with their spiritual gurus. He studied yoga, psychic phenomenon, mysticism, Chinese chi kung, Rosicrucian Teachings of the Ancient Mystical Order of Rosae Crucis (AMORC), Theosophy, Astara lessons, Arcane School teachings, and other esoteric sciences.

Throughout 1983 to 1987, Master Choa Kok Sui worked on the completion of what was his Spiritual Thesis: he labored over the monumental tasks of synthesizing, experimenting, validating, conceptualizing, formulating, systematizing and developing the bulk of what would become Modern Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga.

Modern Pranic Healing as a science was finally born in late 1987, with the publication of Master Choa Kok Sui’s book, The Ancient Science and Art of Pranic Healing (later changed to the title (including) Miracles Through Pranic Healing), which has since been translated into more than 30 languages and distributed in over 40 countries, veritably serving as an introduction for thousands to the science and art of Modern Pranic Healing.

Master Choa Kok Sui later founded the Institute for Inner Studies and the World Pranic Healing Foundation, Inc., and went on to author 20 more books on Pranic Healing and spirituality, before his passing in March 19, 2007. The principles of energy healing were known in different cultures since ancient times, previously they existed mostly as an art rather than a science. Master Choa Kok Sui developed Pranic Healing, a scientific system of energy healing principles and techniques. He developed new concepts and techniques for healing of the body and the psyche with the use of life-energy or prana (Sanskrit term for vital life-force or life-energy). This system is organized in a scientific, simple and practical way so that it can be learned by anyone in a short period of time.

Master Choa Kok Sui presents “non-traditional” or “paranormal” concepts of energy healing in a simple and straightforward way, as is reflected in his internationally acclaimed books on healing – Miracles Through Pranic Healing, originally published as The Ancient Science and Art of Pranic Healing (1987), Pranic Psychotherapy (1990), Advanced Pranic Healing (1992), Pranic Crystal Healing (1996), Pranic Psychic Self-Defense for Home and Office (1999). His books are read and techniques practiced in over 72 countries in North America, Asia, Europe, Africa, and South America and in Australia. The applications of Pranic Healing techniques extend beyond the healing of the body and mind. Students all over the world learn to apply the techniques to many aspects of their lives to maintain balance and harmony.

Master Choa Kok Sui developed Arhatic Yoga, a system of practices to help seekers on the spiritual path expand their consciousness and work toward achieving soul-realization. Arhatic Yoga is a scientific synthesis of yogic practices to safely accelerate the spiritual development of practitioners. The practice of Arhatic Yoga is said to balance aspects of Universal Love, Intelligence and Will. Practitioners aim to develop higher intuition, advanced mental faculties, qualities of good character and progress towards realizing their true potential as Beings of Divine Love, Light and Power.

In his books and courses, Master Choa Kok Sui reveals the esoteric meaning behind ancient teachings of the Biblical Lord’s Prayer, Kabbalistic Tree of Life, Indian tradition and the esoteric Buddhist traditions, and presents the common underlying spiritual concepts.
