Within Happy Science, people aim to cultivate their souls and deepen their love and wisdom through learning and practicing the teachings of Ryuho Okawa. Happy Science spreads the light of Truth, with the aim of creating an ideal world on Earth.
The teachings of Happy Science are based on the spirit of Buddhism and also embody a grand base for integration of the major religions of the world, including Christianity. The two main pillars are the attainment of spiritual wisdom and the practice of “love that gives.”
Happy Science also presents perspectives on the future. As humanity embarks on a new millennium, we are faced with the need to change the value systems that have brought about success in the past. Through the study and practice of Buddha’s Truth, we can take part in the true prosperity that will flourish from the 21st century onwards. This prosperity, based on spiritual values, will enable the happiness of individuals to be in harmony with that of society. Only when people awaken to this Truth can they find a way toward this bright future and a utopia on Earth.
