Master Ryuho Okawa

In 1986, Master Ryuho Okawa founded Happy Science, a spiritual movement dedicated to bring greater happiness to humankind by overcoming barriers of race, religion, and culture and by working toward the ideal of a world united in peace and harmony. Today Happy Science is the most influential and the fastest growing religion in Japan. Its influence reaches all areas of life and society, such as: politics, medical science, art and culture, education and the media. Supported by followers who live in accordance with Master Okawa’s words of enlightened wisdom, Happy Science has grown rapidly since its beginnings in Japan and now extends throughout the world. Today it has more than twelve million members around the globe, with faith centers in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Tokyo, London, Sydney, Sao Paulo and Seoul, among many other major cities. (see international contacts)

People from all backgrounds, cultures, professions and faiths, whether Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim or Hindu, have been attracted to our open movement and unique teachings – studying together in unity, harmony and deep-found respect.

All Happy Science members have access to a vast collection of books and video lectures to study from. Local and worldwide seminars and events are regularly offered to teach us how to meditate, contemplate, receive inspiration and increase our enlightenment. The teachings of Happy Science have already revolutionized the lives of many, so why not to join us as a member and experience it for yourself? (see membership)

Happy Science is involved in a myriad of charitable activities worldwide. We are especially committed to providing aid to nurture a better future; therefore, our main philanthropic efforts extend to children of developing nations who are in need of educational fulfillment and victims of natural disasters.

All our activities are supported by the generosity of many people, who wish to bring more happiness to the world. Why not to join a cycle by planting a seed of happiness yourself?
