Grand Master Choa Kok Sui - Founder of Modern Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga


Grand Master Choa Kok Sui is credited with the development of an energy healing system using more effectively and efficiently prana or ki, which is the life force that keeps the body alive. An engineer by degree and businessman by profession, Master Choa's analytical skills and natural proclivity for experimentation resulted in innovations to the arts of healing and meditation, making them practical and easy to learn.

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 as it is widely known today. 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 Miracles Through Pranic Healing), which has since been translated into more than 30 languages and distributed in over 40 countries. Master Choa Kok Sui later founded the Institute for Inner Studies and the World Pranic Healing Foundation, Inc., and authored 20 more books on Pranic Healing and spirituality.

Master Choa was born in a wealthy family, yet his heart was filled with compassion and generosity for those who suffer from pain, poverty and lack of education. Through global mission of Pranic Healing, Master Choa established several humanitarian projects which feed the hungry, provide help to the sick intelligence, he ensured that all the funds actually go to help those in need instead of covering operational costs. This ingenious approach has given the opportunity for thousands of Pranic Healers around the world to partake in healing the communities they live in, thereby making the world a better place and experiencing the bliss that comes from serving others in need.

Note: Grand Master is a title given in Asian countries as a sign of respect to senior teacher.
