Wayism is identified by the following:

  • The Way of Wayism was taught by the Lord Iesous (called Issa in north India, Yesu in Parthia and Jesus in Latin) during the 1st We have to not only embrace The Way, but become The Way.
  • The values and attitudes central to Wayism are Humility, Simplicity and Compassion. It is through living a life of loving-kindness that the mysteries become known, that the devotee acquires the insight and Wisdom to mature the soul.
  • Wayism believes in universal salvation of all sentient beings from samsara, perpetual incarnation. Spiritual beings (whom some refer to as angels, apsara, Bodhisattvas, Buddhas, devata and devi) partner with us on The Way to spiritual maturity.
  • The doctrine of Butterfly Path is central to teaching of theWAY. Earth hosts our School of Divinity for Human Souls. Advanced souls from elsewhere come to Butterfly Path for an opportunity to evolve into another, higher kind of being, a spiritual being. There are junior and senior students in our school; students on all 27 grades. Junior students dominate the playground, and also democratic processes on Earth. They make for interesting life experiences through which we all can extract wisdom toward graduating from Butterfly Path school. Teaching of theWAY or Wayism is attractive to higher grade students. Students dominated by their soul-minds and soul priorities create what we call soul religions, which serve their needs.
  • Wayism makes a distinct difference between the soul and the spirit. Wayism teaches that souls evolve into spiritual beings. The lower four of the primary chakras are soul-minds, the higher three are spiritual-minds that will eventually take over the soul minds when the entity becomes ‘spiritual’. As caterpillars metamorphose into butterflies, so too the individual is reborn when the soul metamorphoses into a spiritual being.
  • Wayists believe that life after Earth, as a spiritual being, is devoted to helping sentient soul beings not only on Earth but also on other planets in the galaxy.
  • Wayism is at the root of several reformation movements in different religions. Christianity is a reformation movement within Judaism, that resulted from Jesus’ Wayism twenty years after the Jews of Judea crucified the Lord. Mahayana is a reformation movement within Buddhism that came to completion in the 1st century, also because of the Wayist teaching of Love, and the Father in heaven. The Bhakti movement is a reformation from within Hinduism that resulted from Wayist teaching of inclusive (gender and caste), and direct mystical access to spiritual beings.
  • International Association of Wayist Organizations is a membership organization that protects bona-fide Wayist teaching.
  • Wayist Publishing is a Canadian/Mexican based publisher of books and other material for the international membership.
  • Wayist Devotional practice is called Wayist Mysticism and is maintained separate from Wayist Philosophy and Lifestyle. Some devotees practice both, some prefer to practice only the Philosophy and Lifestyle.
  • Wayism is also defined in this online Wayist Encyclopedia

Is Atman-Jiva Cikitasa (Pneumatherapy) different from Reiki and ancient Chinese, or Daoist healing?


The Japanese word Rei stands for ‘Spiritual’ and the word Ki denotes ‘Universal Energy’. This speaks to the same concept as the Chinese words Jing Qi Shen, which form the foundation of Chinese Traditional Medicine. Both the Japanese and Chinese traditional healing systems are rooted in the ancient North Indian system, from the Sanskrit tradition. It is also in the Sanskrit Upanishads where humankind learns about the soul body (jiva) and its soul minds (chakras), its energy (kundalini) the nadis and meridians, etc. Plato and Socrates (500BCE) also developed the notions of the immortal soul and reincarnation–which was a standard worldview for almost 1,000 years until the Roman Catholic Government outlawed the philosophy.

Today, almost every system of alternative healing has roots in the ancient Sanskrit wisdom, which has served humankind for millennia. Most cultures that adopted the ancient wisdom, simply translated the Sanskrit into their own language, retaining the same concepts. But not so in the West. Traditionally, westerners do not respect roots and ancient wisdom in the same way as easterners do. Over the past 100 years, westerners “invented” (some say, concocted) alternative sounding systems based on scanty glosses and misunderstood insights into ancient wisdom of soul and spirit therapeutics. No human society has ever had so many different spiritual healing systems as we see today in the West. It is a veritable zoo out there, replete with new age terms and terminology that boggles the mind, which is probably what the inventors are going for, because perhaps it impresses western people—or something like that.

Reiki is a western construct that started in the 1940s. It is rooted in the Japanese folk tradition of spiritual healing and spirituality (mostly via Buddhism), which comes from ancient Sanskrit sources.  Even in the 1950s, it was not possible to get a Reiki Master Level attunement in Japan, because Japanese people did not teach and certify their traditional healing in that way. In fact, anyone in Japan regarded as a rei ki master healer had learned the deep art under the local village’s master for many years, but all people indulged in the healing arts as a lifestyle—not knowing that in the west one can be certified for that. Traditional healers live a lifestyle, a spirituality, and cultivate habits that make them healers and keep them healing. Rei ki healing in the Japanese tradition was certainly not something learned in schools, and especially not over a period of thirty hours—it is, and was a lifestyle of devotion, beauty, mysticism, dedication and personal sacrifice.


Reiki, as we know it today in the West, is an aspect of most spiritual therapies based on ancient wisdom. It is a small aspect, just a little part, but it is good, helpful and beautiful. Western healers and teachers may not be ready for more of the whole thing, and that may be exactly why Reiki is so popular in the West—it is quick and easy, it is the cell phone app version of an entire program.

Reiki, is very much part of Atman Jiva Citikasa healing regime and tradition. Reiki techniques, as it is known and certified in the West, comprises about 15{f843f0b4b680b1571da8b41cb39acbef098c3d183d50ff5e627896cf4298d21d} of the Atman Jiva Citikasa course and healing regime. Original Reiki spirituality, which is generally not practiced in the West, even by ‘healers’, comprises about 40{f843f0b4b680b1571da8b41cb39acbef098c3d183d50ff5e627896cf4298d21d} of Atman Jiva Citikasa spirituality, lifestyle and worldview. Reiki adds two elements that make it different from Atman Jiva Citikasa, and we do teach those two elements in our course, for practitioners who may want to use it. The two elements are: 1) deference and reverence to the person said to have “founded” Reiki in the 1920s, and 2) mystical symbols based on Japanese writing.


Students of Atman Jiva Citikasa are free to use mystical symbols from any of the ancient Sanskrit, Chinese or the recent Japanese Reiki traditions. What is important is not the symbol itself, but the spiritual anchor, the empowerment, and the attunement. In the ancient traditional rite of empowerment, our master teachers take care of that aspect.
