We love Ryuho!
How his teachings have changed the lives
of people all over the world.
“As I watched Ryuho Okawa speak and read his books, I intuitively understood that everything He was saying is absolutely 100% true.”
“I felt that I had no hope in life, and would live a secluded life of poverty. After graduating high school I began to have a strong feeling that I was going to find the truth if I kept searching for it.
I looked up Ryuho Okawa, and watched some of his lecture clips online. I also purchased The Laws of the Sun book and read it very slowly and carefully. As I watched Ryuho Okawa speak and read his books, I intuitively understood that everything He was saying is absolutely 100% true.
For the first time, I felt connected to many other people who could support me. I have become very confident in my future, removed my anxieties, became a loving person towards others…
My life path has quickly shifted into a staircase to my dreams. I study and practice the teachings every day, and have become close to my new friends who are all studying the Truth together.”
“I have finally found the answer I was looking for in Ryuho Okawa’s books.”
“Since I joined Happy Science and practiced Ryuho Okawa’s teachings, my life changed for the better. The main reason was that I could gain new values to my understanding and way of life. I now experience life as a continuous journey to become a better person and experience greater happiness based on giving love. The main pillars in times of adversity and hardships are the teachings of self-reflection and positive thinking, supported by prayer. The more I practice these teachings, the more love and light I receive.
I have finally found the answer I was looking for in Ryuho Okawa’s books. I felt I could grasp the essence of creation; I was so overwhelmed that I had tears in my eyes while reading. I felt like I came back home.
For these experiences, I am truly thankful from the bottom of my heart.”
“My future dream is to be able to support the Happy Science mission in my home country, Ghana.”
“Happy Science has changed my view of the world. It helped me understand that we are all in the middle of progressing. As a result, I reduced my frustration with the world and my shortcomings. Also, I am able to forgive others more easily than before.
My future dream is to be able to support the Happy Science mission in my home country, Ghana.
It is my wish to help start building an institution based on the teachings of El Cantare in my country. I believe my country needs Ryuho Okawa’s teachings for direction and I want to help the street children get a safe and loving home. I want to use my skill as an architect to design an institution that is going to teach El Cantare’s wisdom.
There is no finer family than the Happy Science family. There is not a better message about who we are, why we are here than the Happy Science message. There is not a better story about human history than Ryuho Okawa’s story about our existence as human beings. It is far reaching than any of the other teachings the world has ever been given.”
“I was stunned by Ryuho Okawa’s easy and clear teachings, which was practical for me to understand.”
“I was stunned by Ryuho Okawa’s easy and clear teachings, which was practical for me to understand. I gradually understood the true meaning of life and realized all the difficulties I have encountered were for my soul training. I used to blame myself when things went wrong and believed I wouldn’t have a happy life because of my bad karma or my family upbringing. Now, I am more positive and confident through learning the basic principles of happiness – love, wisdom, self-reflection and progress. This teaching may seem easy, but is really practical for our training in this world.
I truly believe Happy Science has opened a new chapter in my life. I have gained more confidence, courage and knowledge of the Truth.
I feel really blessed to be born in this era when Ryuho Okawa is here and learn these teachings first-hand. Everyone is capable of becoming a living angel. Let’s aim to become a living angel, develop branches in every city in every country and build an ideal world on earth.”
“I felt really thankful to Ryuho Okawa for providing me this place to come to in America. It really felt like coming home…”
“I felt really thankful to Ryuho Okawa for providing me this place to come to in America. It really felt like coming home and all the people were so nice and supportive. This was what I was looking for all my life.
My heart has always known Truth. After reading The Laws of the Sun I joined this happiness movement in June 2014. It all happened so naturally – I resonated and understood the teaching of Happy Science. The spiritual blessings, feelings of love and peace have allowed me to form an intimate relationship with all of life.”
The goal I have planned for myself is to continue to just study and learn the Truth, so that I can be of use to others.
I feel really excited to know that my time is here to carry out El Cantare’s work. I would like to say to everyone that we need to continue to do self-reflection, so that we can shine brighter and receive more light. We can all become an usher for the new civilization on earth!”
“I’ve become a lifelong student of life who is passionate to learn more and more everyday.”
“I was born in Brazil so I was raised as a catholic, but it was Ryuho Okawa who truly taught me to believe that I’m a child of God, have strength from within and to be happy as I carry out my mission in this life.
The first change for me after I discovered Happy Science was the way I perceive people and the world. I’ve started to learn from my experiences and see my life as a workbook where I can learn many important lessons. I’ve become a lifelong student of life who is passionate to learn more and more everyday.
This book, The Starting Point of Happiness has key points to begin our path to happiness. This is a book I read every year because it has the basic teachings of Happy Science.
I feel that Ryuho Okawa’s teachings are the hope for humankind and I want to even learn Japanese, his mother language, to spread this Light all over the world.”
“I want to help Ryuho Okawa’s dream in America come true, which is to give a lecture at Yankee stadium.”
“Once I started reading the book, The Laws of the Future, tears started gushing from my eyes. Ryuho Okawa taught, ‘The parent of your soul, has never given you defeat. You are always victorious. You will always find a positive meaning in all of your experiences. You are turning all of your experiences into nourishment for the soul.’ ‘Pray that divine nature resides in all people’s hearts. Believe that divine nature resides in all people’s hearts.’
I felt like I really experienced what Ryuho Okawa’s words in the book meant – ‘Your strong, positive thoughts will bore a way through the walls of ill-will created by others and through any obstructions that lie ahead of you in the future.’
I want to help Ryuho Okawa’s dream in America come true, which is to give a lecture at Yankee stadium. I want to convey his teachings all over the world along with my great friends who are studying the Truth!”
“Thanks to Ryuho Okawa whose dedication and perseverance to bring us the teachings has flourished into such a beautiful organization.”
“When I started reading the teachings and watched Ryuho Okawa’s lectures, I felt my life began to change. The teachings gave me guidance for my everyday life and also gave me strength to be my true self.
Ryuho Okawa’s teachings helped me to understand that I was rejecting wealth by feeling guilty about attaining it. He taught me that money is neutral and God wants people with faith to be wealthy and influential in order to create an ideal world.
Thanks to Ryuho Okawa whose dedication and perseverance to bring us the teachings has flourished into such a beautiful organization. I am eternally grateful!”
“…my favorite teaching by Ryuho Okawa is the Principle of Wisdom. Without real wisdom, there is no secure road to love, self-reflection or progress.”

“I really like all Happy Science teachings, but my favorite teaching by Ryuho Okawa is the Principle of Wisdom. Without real wisdom, there is no secure road to love, self-reflection or progress.
