About our Happy Science membership
Happy Science is an organization of people who aim to cultivate their souls and deepen their love and wisdom through learning and practicing the teachings (the Truth) taught by Master Ryuho Okawa. Members study the teachings through books, lectures, and seminars that impart spiritual knowledge about life and the world.
