Author – Ryuho Okawa
RYUHO OKAWA is a renowned author in Japan with a simple goal: to help humankind overcome religious and cultural conflicts and achieve peace. His first book, The Laws of the Sun has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, and is translated into more than 8 languages.
Okawa started receiving spiritual messages from Heaven in 1981. Holy beings appeared before him with impassioned messages urging him to deliver God’s words to Earth. Within the same year, Okawa’s deepest subconscious awakened and revealed his calling to become a spiritual leader, inspiring the world with the power of God’s Truths. Through these conversations with divine beings and profound spiritual contemplation, Okawa developed the philosophy that would become the core of his teachings. His communications with Heaven deepened an understanding of God’s designs and intentions — how God created our souls, all worlds, and the Laws that are the very fabric of the universe.
The universal meaning and integrity of Okawa’s spiritual teachings are delivered in a uniquely simple and pragmatic way that have attracted millions of readers in over one hundred countries. He has published more than 2,900 books (of which more than 600 are Spiritual Interview Series), including The Laws of the Sun, which sold a million copies. He has held numerous seminars and produced 24 films based on his teachings. In 2011, he recorded in the Guinness World Records as “the most books written in one year by an individual,” after publishing 52 books in 2010 alone. His publications continued to increase after that, and he published 161 books in 2014. Furthermore, his books have been translated into 37 languages, beginning with English, German, French, Portuguese, Chinese and Korean, and for readers all over the world. Okawa has given more than 3,350 lectures (of which more than 150 are in English and over 1,100 are spiritual messages and readings) in both Japanese and English and continues to share God’s Truths throughout the world.
Since the founding of Happy Science, Okawa has reportedly published over 2000 books, with many films based on his teachings with titles like: The Laws of the Sun, The Laws of Eternity, and The Golden Laws. These three books contain the core teachings of Happy Science.
