It is our goal to explorethe measures, methods, and theories that will make humans truly happy and create a prosperous and united free world.

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.
