About the Author
Ryuho Okawa, founder Happy Science, Kofuku-no-Kagaku in Japanese, has devoted his life to the exploration of the Truth and ways to happiness. He was born in 1956 in Tokushima, Japan. He graduated from the University of Tokyo. In March 1981, he received his higher calling and awakened to the hidden part of his consciousness, El Cantare. After working a major Tokyo-based trading house and studying international finance at the Graduate Center of the University of New York, he established the Institute in 1986. Since then, he has been designing spiritual workshops for people from all walks of life, from teenagers to business executives. He is known for his wisdom, compassion, and commitment to educating people to think and act in spiritual and religious ways. He has published over 300 books, including The Essence of Buddha, which have sold millions of copies worldwide. He has also produced successful feature length films (including animations) based on his works. The members of the Institute follow the path he teaches, ministering to people who need help by sharing his teachings.

1. The practice of giving love without expectations
2. To seeking true knowledge of ourselves and of the meaning of existence
3. Practicing reflection to understand the mistakes we made in life and to release ourselves from attachment that causes suffering
4. To develop ourselves so that we can help guide others and to become useful in the world - to, ultimately, evolve spiritually
We are reaching a stage in our cultures where we are all searching for meaning in our lives. We are beginning to understand that all the wealth and worldly success in life cannot bring us happiness. I believe we are starting to see beyond the superficial conditioning from school and work that the excessive `finanicial profit making' mentality (or in other words, selfish-greed) is not working. This is simply because it is not our true aim or natural state of being. Our natural state of being is to love one another, help one another to grow and become beautiful, good beings who live harmoniously with one another. To cultivate people who are genuinely happy and are passionate in passing on this happiness to as many people as possible so that they too can be happy is, simply, the essence of this book.
If you value `happiness' in life and believe that this is the true aim of people then I highly recommend this book to you. It has certainly enlightened me to understanding what true happiness is and how we can use this to make this world a better place for us now and, more importantly, for our children and grandchildren in the future. We need to begin creating cycles of happiness. This is one book that can help us in initiating these cycles. Please read it and enjoy!
...with love, light and happiness.
