The administrator and the recipient may be seated in chairs.
Literally, Johrei means "purifying the spirit," and specifically it refers to the transmission of divine light through the palm of the administrator to the body of another person. It relieves physical, emotional or mental suffering. According to Mokichi Okada, Johrei aids the process of disease, or purification, which is the dissolution and elimination of impurities (toxins/clouds) in both body and spirit. The sources of impurities include sins---past and present---and any substances not meant for human ingestion, such as chemicals and medicines.
Johrei is a gift from God that can not only restore us to whole health but also awaken us spiritually, thus deepening our faith. It helps us to lead better lives and carry out our missions in this world.
