Communing with a Reiki Master

_MG_3693 So, Kongo was out doing some night photography this evening and came across Rabindra Sakar, a Reiki Master, in Seaport Village in San Diego.  Reiki is an alternative medicine involving spirituality where positive energies are released through the laying on of hands which promotes self-healing and a state of equilibrium.  Hmmm.  Anyway, when he's not helping people heal themselves, Rabindra is a wizard at stacking rocks.  The rock pillars above do not use any glue or mechanical devices to get them to stay on top of each other.  It's just a very, very good sense of balance on the part of Rabindra.


Rabindra carefully places Kongo on a rock pile, being careful not to disturb the fragile balance of the columns

Rabindra is originally from India and teaches classes and performs treatment using Reiki methods.  He told Kongo that it takes him about four hours each day to stack the rocks and he disassembles the whole thing every evening.  He basically uses the riprap lining the quay at Seaport Village for his raw materials.  It should be noted that a host of scientific agencies including the American Cancer Society, Cancer Research UK, and the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine have found that there is no clinical or scientific evidence that Reiki is effective in the treatment of any illness.  In any event, despite untold billions of dollars of research, we still lack a cure for cancer.

Kongo has not opinion on Reiki (what do monkeys know anyway) but he enjoys meeting interesting people and Rabindra is certainly one interesting character.

Below is a video of Rabindra stacking rocks.

Travel safe.  Have fun.

  3. I am always amazed at this display. It is simply mindblowing how he is able to balance the rocks.

    LOVE the fact that you got him to pose with the monkey. I got a real kick out of these shots. The only thing better would have been if you could have gotten Joe McNally to pose with him 🙂
