My aunt has liposarcoma and her condition is deteriorating. Do you think that giving ki energy through our hands is possible? What are your thoughts about cancer in general? Is it a sort of karmic lesson to learn ? Could you advise any sutra - prayer for her to contemplate?


Zen does not believe in a power outside of ourselves. Cancer comes from many factors: the mind, surroundings, condition of the immune system,...  It has nothing to do with karma. If you are able to do reiki, please give her a treatment, since it can heal the pain and anxiety of the body. Rather than reading sutras, please give her a kind of care that truly reaches her heart.


Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
