Experience it

Happy Science is a universal religion that unites everyone; therefore, we welcome all who wish to improve themselves through the exploration of the Right Mind and daily practice of The Fourfold Path of Love, Wisdom, Self-reflection and Progress. Through self-refinement, members learn to enact positive change in their lives. Imbued with a sense of purpose (rooted in love and altruism), our members gain confidence to pursue roles that positively affect society.

Happiness Planting

There are many expressions of offerings in Happy Science, such as offering time, experience or skills. As a non-profit organization, we rely solely on contributions from members (and friends) to fund activities and support our ministers. It is not the quantity that matters, but the quality and attitude of the offering, so we encourage all who appreciate our teachings to consider a showing of gratitude in the form of regular offerings.

The Laws of Justice
The Laws of Justice shows what global justice is from a perspective of the Supreme God. Becoming aware of this view will let us embrace differences in beliefs, recognize other people's divine nature, and love and forgive one another. It will also become the key to solving the issues we face, whether they're religious, political, societal, economic, or academic, and help the world become a better and safer world for all of us.
