Happy Science Florida

Florida Branch

Happy Science is a growing worldwide movement for the happiness of humanity. The organization was founded in 1986 by Master Ryuho Okawa in Japan. Our mission is to improve people's lives through seminars and activities that promote a universal Truth.

Members and participants of Happy Science make efforts in spiritual discipline for self-refinement and higher awareness through the diligent practice of faith and by exploration of the right mind as The Four Principles of Happiness: Love, Wisdom, Self-Reflection, and Progress. The teachings of Happy Science are universal and compatible with other philosophies, teachings, ideas and beliefs. Our core principles include the essence of truth found not only in religion and spirituality, but also in the academinc fields of politics, economics, business, and education. The organization is open to new knowledge and information so that we can evolve in an ever-changing world.

We hope you can join us on this incredible journey to create a better world during this extraordinary age of miracles, to give love to all humankind.

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.

Offerings can be made using the "Happiness Planting" donations envelope at your local temple or through our online donations portal.
