What is Satori?

satori momentSatori is a "temporary insight into a higher order"

That´s how Reiki teacher and author FRANK ARJAVA PETTER, living in Japan, translates the Japanese word. Wikipedia explains Satori  as  "enlightenment in Zen Buddhism".


Enlightenment has certainly nothing to do with a particular religion. Many people who have experienced a Satori moment (including me) describe this experience as a state of light with a glimpse of a reality that is hidden from the normal consciousness. Whether the personality is sustainably changed by a Satori moment varies from case to case. In any case, this experience is so incredibly beautiful that you want to experience it again.
