Happy Science New York

New York Branch

The grand mission of Happy Science is to create utopia on Earth - to save all humankind through the worldwide dissemination of the universal Truth as taught by El Cantare, the Lord of all Gods. The Truth that we teach transcends the barriers of race, culture and religion, and is a major force in uniting a despairingly fragmented world. Members of Happy Science strive for self-refinement through a continuous practice of faith and the education of the soul via the 'exploration of the right mind' and the Fourfold Path of Love, Wisdom, Self-Reflection, and Progress.

Our Temple is open to all who wish to learn more of the beautiful and inspiring teachings of Master Ryuho Okawa. We warmly invite you to visit our Soul Training Center to experience our teachings first hand. We offer a myriad of activities that will invigorate your mind, body and soul. Our events are donation driven and open to the public.

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.
