About GMCKS

Founder of Modern Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga, Grand Master Choa Kok Sui(GMCKS) is credited with the development of an energy healing system using 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.

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. He has been teaching the world,the secret of blending spirituality,good health & prosperity. GMCKS is also called the “scientist of the Soul”. His relentless search for truths beyond the accepted realities,has led to thousands benefiting from Pranic Healing,Arhatic Yoga, Clairvoyance, Kriyashakthi and other esoteric teachings and practices.

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 Mahasamadhi on March 19, 2007.

Purpose of Pranic Healing  

The main Purpose of Pranic Healing is “to alleviate the suffering of the people by complementing allopathic medicine with Pranic Energy healing.”

The Purpose of Arhatic Yoga is “to accelerate the evolutionary development of the Soul so that the person can be of greater service to Mankind and the planet Earth” and to produce intelligent, compassionate, good hearted, powerful disciples who will become great Divine servants.”

The Great Vision  

The target is to produce one Pranic Healer for every family. One Arhatic yogi for every one thousand people out of the present population of about seven billion people. The target is to produce seven million Arhatic yogis. Out of every ten Arhatic yogis one senior Arhatic yogi will be produced. A total of seven hundred thousand senior Arhatic yogis will be produced. Out of every one hundred senior Arhatic yogis the target is to produce one baby Arhat or seven thousand baby Arhats. Out of every hundred baby Arhats the target is to produce one fully matured Arhat or a great Arhat. A total of seventy fully mature Arhats or great Arhats.

Out of the seventy great Arhats hopefully three Holy Masters or three Great Ones will be produced. If this can be done within one hundred and fifty years time the world will change, be transformed and progress beyond recognition. If this objective can be accomplished, we can have heaven on earth.
