Grand Master Choa Kok SuiFounder of Modern Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga
Grand Master Choa Kok Sui is globally renowned as the Founder of Modern Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga. He was born on 15 August 1952 at Cebu, Philippines. Raised in a multi-faith environment, Master Choa Kok Sui found himself inclined to paranormal and spiritual matters from the tender age of 12. His relentless search for spiritual truths beyond the accepted realities has led thousands worldwide and from all works of life to experience the benefits of his teachings.
Master Choa Kok Sui (MCKS) was one of the greatest Masters of Energy of our generation. Through the development of Pranic Healing he conceptualised a fresh and far deeper understanding of energy healing using the readily available source of all life – Prana (also called Chi, Ki, Mana, Pneuma, Ruah or Vital Life Force in different traditions). For those seekers on the spiritual path, Master Choa developed a system of practices called Arhatic Yoga that leads to soul (or self) realization. Arhatic Yoga is non-sectarian, and can become an enhancement to the understanding of any individual willing to accept the existence of a Higher Being or a God.
The word ‘Master’ follows from the Chinese convention denoting ‘Teacher’.
People often wonder how a successful businessman and an adept scientist can also be an enlightened guru. It is the perfect blending of these varied qualities that made Master Choa Kok Sui a unique spiritual teacher for our modern times. He travelled ceaselessly across the globe, teaching students in over 60 countries on 6 continues from all walks of life. His distinctive quality as a teacher was his ability to cause significant shifts in the consciousness of his students. Even by the end of a two-day session, students were able to experience spiritual elevation, mental alertness, emotional balance and higher levels of energy.
The dynamic style of Master Choa Kok Sui’s teaching is equally reflected in the direct, uncluttered style of his writing. He was a prolific author, and before his passing on March 19, 2007, MCKS finished 25 books published in more than 30 languages. Master Choa’s style in presenting paranormal concepts and in unveiling inner (normally hidden) spiritual teachings is simple, straightforward, and practical.
MCKS believed that in addition to “feed the soul”, it is also very important to “feed the body”. Towards the same, MCKS set up many charitable organizations in his lifetime. Even today the he philanthropic arm of the organization, the MCKS Charitable Foundation runs feeding programs in various countries, funds medical assistance for poor patients and contributes to disaster relief the world over.
The influence of Master Choa Kok Sui’s life and teachings continues to grow, reaching out through thousands of Pranic Healing foundations, healing centres and associations in more than 100 countries and cities.
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 encyclopaedic level of knowledge on the subject matter. 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.
During his development as Grand Master he received a degree in engineering and became a successful businessman. He spent more than eighteen years researching and studying esoteric sciences that have resulted in development of the Pranic Healing system. Initially trained as a chemical engineer, his scientific orientation enabled him to carefully systematize the techniques of Pranic Healing. Throughout 1983 to 1987, Master Choa Kok Sui worked on the completion of what was his Spiritual Thesis: he laboured 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. Along with committed participants he spent several years experimenting to determine the effectiveness and the mechanism of the healing techniques commonly known and used by healers and students of esoteric sciences.
Master Choa stressed on the importance of validation and proof in all his spiritual quests, and encouraged students to only accept teachings after validation through experiments. He warned against blind beliefs and always encouraged students to practice intelligent evaluation and discernment. Master Choa regarded spirituality as a science but an inner science that deals with phenomena deeper than and beyond the external physical world. In his recorded lectures MCKS can often be heard saying in answer to a question about a technique or modality “let’s experiment”. The hallmark of Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga system is that in every MCKS workshop there always experiential segments to ensure that students are able to validate the concepts and techniques being discussed.

Founder of Arhatic Yoga
For those seekers on the spiritual path, Master Choa developed a system of practices that leads to soul-realization or self-realization. Known as the synthesis of all seven Yogas, Arhatic Yoga was introduced to MCKS by his teacher Mahaguruji Mei Ling (Maha means Great, Guru means Teacher and Ji means Respected – Mahaguruji means “Respected Great Spiritual Teacher.”). Arhatic Yoga is in fact an advanced spiritual technology composed of series of practices to accelerate the evolutionary process of the soul. Arhatic Yoga is non-sectarian, and can become an enhancement to the understanding of any individual willing to accept the existence of a Higher Being or a God.
Arhatic Yoga comprises of a set of advanced techniques, which together proportionally balances aspects of Divine Love, Divine Intelligence and Divine Will. Practitioners are thereby able to develop higher intuition, advanced mental powers, stable emotions, and clearer qualities of good character, and are able to move more rapidly toward becoming totally integrated beings of Divine Light. This fantastic synthesis of various yogic practices (from many traditions), introduces the spiritual disciple to a set of proven methods devised to safely accelerate spiritual growth.

Master Choa formulated an easy to learn, user friendly system, so brilliantly simple that even new students can learn to heal simple ailments over a short period of time, enabling them to produce immediate positive results that contribute to good health and well-being. Because of this simplicity Pranic Healing can be utilized by students as solely a healing modality or can be a way of life. Many of his students continue into advanced courses as they realize that his techniques are accessible, easily understood and extremely powerful and have affected tremendous positive changes in their lives.
It was his belief that students are nurtured through the structure of the course. Hence he designed teaching manuals for instructors who need to follow it step-by-step to ensure consistency in delivery of the courses. He standardized these courses, which continue to be taught by licensed instructors in many countries. As of today are over 20 workshops on Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga.
Through his pragmatic teaching methodology, students are able to obtain volumes of lessons, relevant for an entire lifetime, in a relatively short period of time.

Master Choa Kok Sui often accepted that he was not born a healer but that he gained true mastery of Energy through his dedicated research and love for humanity. He believed in the Law of Correspondence that states that whatever affects the energy body or aura, affects the physical body and vice versa and that whatever happens to the energy body manifests itself in the physical body.

There are two Basic Laws in Pranic Healing:
1, The Law of Self-Recovery, which states that the body can heal itself.
