“The future shall be built upon my words.”

As this saying goes, Master Ryuho Okawa has been creating the era and changing the world through His words.

What made Him preach 3,000 lectures was infinite love

for the happiness of all humanity and for the creation of a new civilization on earth.

Exceeding 3,000 lectures, The God of Earth El Cantare, Master Ryuho Okawa

will continue changing the world, and create the future through His words.

On September 29th, 2019, “The Spiritual Message from Sayyid Khomeini 2,” marked the 3000th lecture. (This spiritual message can be seen in branches and temples around the world from October 2nd.)

It all started from November 23rd, 1986 at Nippori Shuhan-kaikan in Tokyo. The first lecture given was “On Establishing Happy Science,” for the gathering of Happy Science members.

33 years have passed since that day. Master Okawa has continuously preaching the law once every four days. At a remarkable speed with a variety of preaching styles: lecture style, spiritual message style, and also public lectures not only in Japan but on all five continents.

The laws that He preach are beyond gender, age, skin color, language and the teachings of the mind, spiritual truth, politics, economics, management, education, beauty, entertainment, Universe and in many other themes. Now, over 140 lectures have been given in English, and over 2,500 books are published, and also translated into 31 languages. He is stepping into the field of the extraordinary. (as of 2019)

And, each of these lectures comes His, ‘Die for the truth’ and ‘Live each day as if it were the last’ spirit that comes from every day, continuous hard effort of discipline. These lectures have a spiritual vibration and are a ‘revelation.’

Therefore, Master’s lectures have actually changed the lives of those who have gathered to the lectures, or heard them afterwards through tapes or videos, or read them through books and been changing the destiny of humanity and the world, the age being built upon His words.

Looking Back at the Footsteps of Reaching 3,000 Lectures.

The Beginning of Missionary Work

The year after the first commemorative lecture, on March, 1987, “The Principle of Happiness” was preached. As a specific way of ‘exploring the right mind,’ ‘Fourfold Path (Love, Wisdom, Self-Reflection, and Progress) was revealed. With this lecture as the beginning, Master Okawa started preaching the core parts of the law and building the system of Buddha’s Truth from the start. In the same year in May, “The Principle of Love,” in December, “The Principle of Progress,” and continuing on to March 1988, “The Principle of Wisdom,” in October, “The Principle of Self-Reflection.” And the next year, 1989, March, “The Constant Change of Civilizations of Truth” and “What is Happy Science” was preached. Master Okawa made the catch phrase, “The Life School for Gratuates” before receiving religious organization status and conducted many seminars. Many materials and opportunities to study and explore the Truth were given, and core leader members of Happy Science were nurtured.

Show the Wish of God and Buddha in the Field of Politics in Japan and the World.

Since Happy Science was founded, we have been aiming to build Buddha-land Utopia on Earth through love, wisdom, self-reflection and progress (The Fourfold Path) and as one of the activities for creating utopia, holding ideals for the nation and its politics, we have been stating numerous opinions to realize those ideals. And in April 2009, The Happiness Realization Party was established under the lecture, “The Manifesto of Happiness Realization Party.” Master rapidly gave lectures, including public lectures and speeches on the streets throughout the nation, based on The Happiness Realization Party’s core political ideology and manifestos. After that, He continuously showed the way that the Japanese and world politics under uncertainty should go and gave lectures and spiritual messages, and conducted missionary tours. In 2019, The Happiness Realization Party marked its 10th anniversary and Master gave the lecture, “Freedom, Democracy, and Faith” in Makuhari Messe in Chiba.

From Public Spiritual Messages to UFO Readings

From 2010, public spiritual messages started at full scale. A spiritual message is given through Master’s voice, to clearly confess the feelings of the existing spirits in the spiritual world, or invite a living person’s guardian spirit to reveal their true intentions or their subconscious and find out what is in their mind. Moreover, there is “remote reading,” which is a superpower to see places far beyond, and “space people reading”, which is to read the space people’s memory of their reincarnations on Earth, or “UFO reading,” which is to have contact with a being in the UFO in the sky. And so, many unknown aspects of the universe and the possibility of humanity have been explored. Now more than 500 books are released in the public spiritual message series.

The teachings of “beauty” were officially taught from 2011. Three years later, the spiritual messages from celebrities started. They talked about their secrets in succeeding in the world of entertainment. This became a new set of teachings.

To Create Education for the Future.

Witnessing crucial bullying problems among schools and the concealment tendency of schools, Master Okawa preached lectures based on education in December 2006, and proposed “Bullying Punishment Act” (draft). Six years after that, the National Diet enacted “Act for Promotion of Preventive Measures against Bullying.” Furthermore, seeking for ideal education which nurtures richness of the mind and faith as its basis, Master Okawa founded Happy Science Academy Nasu Campus and Kansai Campus, and once in a while visits them and gives lectures to the students. Also, establishing the studies for the new age, He successively published Happy Science University series books. In April 2005, the Higher Religious Educational Institution Happy Science University was opened and is now educating many students with the teachings to play an active role for the future world.
