New Jersey Branch

The future of science is based on faith. Happy Science is now the greatest global spiritual movement bringing enlightenment to the world by leading in the fields of religion, politics, and economy. It is our goal to explore the measures, methods, and theories that will make humans truly happy and create a prosperous and united free world.

Happy Science is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that studies, practices, and spreads the universal teachings of Truth from the founder and leader, Master Ryuho Okawa, the World Teacher, Buddha, and Savior, throughout the world to bring true happiness, prosperity, and freedom to all humankind.

Our grand mission is to ultimately create utopia on earth through El Cantare faith, and by Exploring the Right Mind by practicing 'the Principles of Happiness, The Fourfold Path of: Love that gives, Wisdom, Self-Reflection and Progress. In order to realize this mission, our organization nurtures an "education of the soul" through lectures, seminars, meditation classes, prayer services and international missionary work and charitable activities. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend our events anytime. Contact us to participate or volunteer today at our Edgewater, NJ location.

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.
