Editor's note: The answers given by Master Nirula are presented as a series of Q & A's as they were replied to, in the same order as in the the original correspondence. Some typographical errors have been corrected, with the minimum of formatting and editorial comments needed for better readability for those who may be unfamiliar with some of the referenced aspects of this subject, given the level of knowledge the student already has. The entire correspondence is replicated essentially as is.
Student: "Who is divine? Krishna or Shiv-ji? Harer namaiv kevalam...Is what we practice as healers a step before one starts chanting harinaam or after? Where do we stand as healers? What is the difference between Krishna Aaradhana and our healing practice? "
Nalin K. Nirula: In reference to your key questions regarding Krishna araadhna and our practices of healing--
The partial quotation you mention is from the Brhan-naradiya Puraṇa [38.126], and the complete shloka is:
Harer nama harer nama harer namaiva kevalam
kalau nasti-eva nasti-eva nasti-eva gatir anyatha
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu quoted this while instructing his devotee Prakashananda. (As described in Krishna das Kaviraj's Chaitanya Charitamrita, Adi Lila, 17.21).
It means that, “chanting the Divine holy name of He who liberates from all karmic bindings is the only way in kali-yuga (this age and time) to progress on the path of redemption, of liberation from the binding consequences of karma.”
The 3 time repeated emphasis is on chanting the “name of Hari, ‘He who defeats all obstacles, and liberates from all sorrows and binding consequences of actions’ (karma).”
There is also a triple emphasis on “there is no other way to progress, to move”. There being no ‘gati’ or pace or movement means being tied down by ‘binding consequences of karma’ that force us to remain in the material zone of existence.
As the Divine is infinite and infinitely unlimited, so are His names and powers. He can appear in any form He chooses, and He chooses as well to appear as Reiki—the universal life-force energy, and the Karma Quotient or KQ Force—the energy that liberates one from all balances of binding consequence of karma. It is of the highest importance to know this, remember this and act in this consciousness.
The symbols of these healing modalities are the Liberating light, energy and sound forms of spiritual (divine) connecting links that join us to special specific purpose oriented karma liberating energies of Krishna, Hari, and His hidden heart energies—of ‘Aradhite’—‘The one who serves and pleases Krishna the best of all’ --or, Radharani.
We do not promote this as a Krishna Aaradhana system, as in the general public mind and understanding He is restricted or limited to so-called Hinduism and followers of Hinduism.
It is higher knowledge to understand that these energies come from
Krishna Himself but knowledge of this is not necessary to actually activate the liberating aspect of Divine energies.
Even the sound energy of the mahamantra is an ‘energy’ of similar nature.
Hence we refer to the specific karma healing energies we use as healing energies of Reiki and the Karma Quotient Force, as these were the nomenclatures given to this method of accessing Hari-naam energies by the re-discoverers of these energies— Master Usui for Reiki and the Masters Nirula (us—Nalin Nirula & Renoo Nirula) for the KQ Force, respectively.

A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada often said that writings about transcendental topics was the 'Big Mridangam' compared to the mridangam played at kirtans and harinaam chantings and in the service of Krishna.
This is because the writings, the books and articles stay even after the author has long gone, creating the sound vibrations that open the heart and mind to the truth and ones highest purpose of life.
We trust these writing will be as a 'Big Mridangam' for all our healers, and those seeking freedom from pain, whether bodily or financial.
The curious and the gyanis are welcome any time as well!
