who knows Me thus without doubt as the Supreme Person Puruṣottama, of
the eternal blissful form, such a one is the knower of everything. He
therefore engages himself in rendering devotional service to Me in many
ways, O son of Bharata."
evam asammūḍhaḥ jānāti= Me only without
doubt/delusion can know. Or--only one who is free from delusion and doubt can know who I really am.
evam = Me only (as Puruṣottama) – there is no equal and no superior to Me, I am the greatest blissful transcendental living being of all.
There are 3 stages of knowing
the Divine, [knowing which one attains to the state of brahma nirvana--joyful ecstatic bliss] : SB 1.2.11 - "Learned transcendentalists who know the Absolute Truth call this nondual substance Brahman, Paramātmā or Bhagavān. [brahmeti paramātmeti bhagavān iti śabdyate. (Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam – 1.2.11-Creation).]
The effulgence emanating from the Divine Person (brahmeti, the universal life force--Reiki), the Paramatma personal form of the Divine in ones heart, and the original personal form of the Supreme Divine— Bhagavān. Brahma-nirvāṇa-sukham is the stage when one is in touch with the Absolute Truth in completeness. An outcome of this blissful association is the elimination of all desire for material sense enjoyment. It is a process that comes to fruition by ones spiritual practices.
Serving Kṛṣṇa in spiritual relationships the different mellows, rasas (tastes) or bhava--moods-–shanta, dasya, mitra, vatsala, madhurya rasas. [The bhavas of tranquillity, servitorship, friendship, parenthood, and conjugal/ consorthood.]
BG 7.7 - "There is no Truth superior to Me, O conqueror of wealth. Everything rests upon Me, just like jewels strung on a thread." [Jewels also refers to the precious and valuable --atma and Paramatma.]
BG 13.31 -
yadā bhūta-pṛthag-bhāvam eka-stham anupaśyati tata eva ca vistāraṁ brahma sampadyate tadā
yadā — when; bhūta — of living entities; pṛthak-bhāvam — separated identities; eka-stham — situated in one; anupaśyati — one tries to see through authority; tataḥ eva — thereafter; ca — also; vistāram — the expansion; brahma — the Absolute; sampadyate — he attains; tadā — at that time.
When a sensible man ceases to see different identities due to different material bodies, and he sees (through vedic authority) that they are expansions of the One Supreme and rest in Him, he attains to the absolute Brahman conception.
NB: This understanding is clearly given in the Reiki mantras and symbols, with the healing energy networking through the atomically available Vishnu and Parmatma heart energies. Hence Reiki channels are, at the very minimum, at the very outset, capable of connecting with and having the absolute Brahman conception.

"This most conﬁdential hidden treasure of the Vedic scriptures has now been revealed and described by Me, O sinless one. Whoever takes this understanding to heart becomes wise, and attains perfection in his endeavors, O son of Bharata." --BG 15.20
understanding is the most treasured part of the scriptures because it addresses
the question of how we are trapped in the material world. The weakness comes
from losing our heart connection to the Divine as described in the first 5
slokas of this chapter.
The upside down tree reflecting the spiritual where we
want to lord it over matter, in separation to Kṛṣṇa. As we do that, our
forgetfulness strengthens by getting attached more and more to materialistic
endeavors and efforts.
Here it is made clear that only one who
is free from sin or the tendency to be sinful can understand this and take it
to heart. The heart consciousness revives the remembrance of ones spiritual
nature. Reiki is directly the heart
energy of Kṛṣṇa. It descends form the highest crown chakra and rests in our
heart centers form where we channel it.
ACBSP in his commentary to this sloka has
stated that our problem is of "weakness of heart." Clearly, association with the heart
energy is required to fix this. This can be done through the Reiki heart connection energy and chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahamantra.
Additional Study reference--Whole of BG Chapter 8, specially 8.4-5; 8.14-15: [by remembering Krishna always, the nittya baddha (eternally bound) can attain to Him.]
"My dear friends, O sons of the demons, you cannot please the Supreme Personality of Godhead by becoming perfect brāhmaṇas, demigods or great saints or by becoming perfectly good in etiquette or vast learning. None of these qualifications can awaken the pleasure of the Lord. Nor by charity, austerity, sacrifice, cleanliness or vows can one satisfy the Lord. The Lord is pleased only if one has unflinching, unalloyed devotion to Him. Without sincere devotional service, everything is simply a show."
See practical application of this for healers as below
Worshipping the expansion of Kṛṣṇa
as the paramatma within the heart--the Reiki network (heart to
heart--the Vishnu connection that comes from Kshirodakshayi Vishnu at
the center of every atom, and also as Paramatma in the heart of all
beings. Reiki 2's have the heart connection mantra and symbol.)
Paramatma in all living beings, in food and other forms (connecting
with those elements and beings, channeling healing to them.)
Connecting with Reiki as Kṛṣṇa's heart Paramatma energy.
Offering all that we do [everything] to Reiki—the paramatma energy, and universal life force energy to Kṛṣṇa.
Knowing Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Source of all things and nothing is above or beyond Him.
Maintaining always an association with Him in thought word and deed.
NB: Key difference between Riki and the technical Brahminical methods:
In the technical brahminical system one is not permitted to offer certain forbidden things to Kṛṣṇa directly. Therefore as there are things that one may do that are not offerable to Kṛṣṇa
and one is liable to experience negative reactions to those acts. For
example these are sinful acitivities on the spiritual path--forbidden
food (non-veg), alcohol and intoxication, lustful acts, gambling,
telling lies, taking another's rightful share and so on. One cannot ask Kṛṣṇa directly to make these consequence-free. Personal practice of regulative principles must be done.
is understood that those who come to the Reiki healing process may be
habituated to sinful and forbidden activities, and unable to properly or
consistently follow the four regulative principle (no gambling,
intoxication, meat-eating, forbidden sex activity).
everything healers do to the Divine through Reiki eliminates this
restriction while applying rectification energies to such sinful acts as
well as rectifying ones thinking gradually. In this way, while such
acts are not "approved", there is a relatively rapid de-toxification of
karma and thinking that takes place, resulting in time of reformation of
sinful activities. The practitioner automatically comes to follow the
natural brahminical path because he develops those qualities. Then he
may follow the regulative principles easily or more naturally without
getting negative consequences.
is to be noted that one may not commit sinful activities and think that
on the strength of healing it is alright to do so. That in itself is a
great offense. Where one is unable to resist indulging in these
activities, the Reiki healing fixes this in time and gives the
individual an opportunity to regulate his behavior. In the brahmincal
system it is recommended that first one must follow the regulative
principles and chant the Mahamantra and once steady in that practice,
one my be considered for receiving Brahmin initiation. This creates
great stress, and many are unable to receive the Brahmin initiation due
to their unfitness and inabilty to follow the rules. However, Reiki
initiation takes care of this in the following way.
as chanting the Mahamantra is restriction-free--anyone can do it at any
time and place and under any circumstances, Reiki is exactly like that.
Both these act very powerfully to cleanse and heal the practitioner. At
the same time, Reiki energies can be focused on specific problem areas
to heal and change conditions in all areas of life, while getting rid of
binding consequence karma, and removing feelings of helplessness or
inability to take proactve action. It also attaches one more firmly to
the service and association of the universal life force, and eventually,
by increased understanding--to Kṛṣṇa.
needs to be studied and understood under the guidance of a qualified
spiritual master. In the absence of this higher knowledge, we observe
that Reiki healers fall away from the path of service to Kṛṣṇa and liberation
from karmic consequences. They fall back into the pool of material
miseries, just as do those who are unable to follow the regulative
principles and therefore are unable to achieve true Brahmin status.
means 'universal life force energy'. Reiki means 'universal life force
energy. Reiki is the heart energy of the Divine, and when one accepts
this compassionate energy, one is gradually freed from the clutches of
material nature as described.
Note for KQ Healers: The KQ 2 level gives the mantra for directly working with the crown chakra and heart flow of KQ energies, which has already been established at KQ 1.
