Koichi Tohei Sensei

Koichi Tohei Sensei introduced four unifying principles of coordinating Mind and Body.

"When your mind and your acts become one with nature, then nature will protect you. Fear no enemy; fear only to be separated from the mind of nature"

Koichi Tohei Sensei holding back a line of students who are together pushing on his little finger.

This is an excerpt from the back cover of Ki in Daily Life, Koichi Tohei, ISBN 9784889960716:

"Technology today touches nearly every part of our lives. Through even more impressive development of machines, the process continues. Computers put men out of work; pushing a single button is enough to start a nuclear war.

Gradually, though, the world has begun to remember that it man for whom the machines must work, and not the other way around. We recognise now that science, for all its achievements, has done little to help us understand ourselves and realise our potential.

There is no sense in waiting for science to do it for us. Each of us must now take it upon themselves to understand thier true nature and strength. The Chinese classic 'Saikontan' says that we stand like beggars at the gate, forgetting the infinite power given to us by the universe. Instead of shrinking from this potential, we should be thankful for it. We should strive to manifest it and help others to do the same.

The author regards his Four Basic Principles to Unify  Mind and Body as having been given to him by the universe to spread the way of the universe."
