From Margaret Thatcher seances to promising to eliminate North Korea, Happy Science is a controversial new religious movement with over 12 million members in 90 countries.
Led by its charismatic leader, Ryuho Okawa, the group’s followers believe he is a divine being, but others have accused him of leading a cult.
We hear from journalists who have been investigating the group to try and get to the bottom of it.

Japan is a hotbed of cults because religions are tax exempt. (It's a serious problem.)

Ryuho Ohkawa initially said the reincarnation of the Buddha (Gautama Siddhartha) was living somewhere in Japan today. Then he claimed that HE was that reincarnation. (His followers called him "Buddha-sama".) Then he came up with this "El Cantare" crap. (My jaws dropped.)

The literal, word-for-word translation of the Japanese name of this cult is "The Science of Happiness", but that name was already taken in English, so they came up with "Happy Science" which sounds like a goofy "Janglish" name to me. (LOL)

Jesus love you, he died on the cross for you, accept him as your lord and savior he can change everything. For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life" (Jn 3:16" But you must repent too. From that time Jesus went about preaching and saying, Let your hearts be turned from sin, for the kingdom of heaven is near. (Matthew 4:17).

I see no difference between happy science and christianity, or any other existing religion on this planet, all are absurd and deserve to laugh at, the only difference between a "cult" and a "normal religion" is the number of followers.

I have been a Happy Science member for 10 years. Never have I been required to give money. It's sad that such a low brow media syndication like vice actually is brainwashing people and feeding false information to the masses. Most people don't even understand simple concepts of of having a soul, eternal life and reincarnation. On August 29th 2017 North Korea fired ballistic missiles over Japan VICE seemed not to mention that.. Japan should be a sovereign nation that can defend themselves. HS love Chinese people and North Korean people but their governments. Communist China oppresses Uyghurs, Tibetans and Mongolians not to mention the Folun Gong members. Japan being able to defend itself from these evil Government is Justice not aggression. We at HS by no means want to attack any country we only want people to have freedom and democracy. Shaolilin Monks practice Kung Fu not to overtake others but protect their temple and religion. Albeit some of information about Venus may seem fantastical, but Venus is and was in the habitable zone of our solar system and long time ago sustained life... Not everyone can believe in channeling spirits... okay that is fair but if you are part of a spiritual group or community these things are common knowledge. Most atheist or non religious minded people would find it strange. People put Jesus on the cross because they thought heretical... it's very sad. Right now earth you have Lord El Cantare a Savior whom through Ryuho Okawa want to move this world towards the Golden age of humanity through his teachings, words of light. If you felt the great river of love and light flowing from his heart into your own, there will be no doubt in who he is... so I hope you keep an open mind and heart. Pick up a book of his and read it before you make judgment. I doubt anyone whom was interviewed read one book of his. Materialism rules the main conscience of humanity. So you may not believe in channeling spirits, or angels or your own divine nature. In Happy Science we believe that are true home is heaven. VICE is libel here because information is false in many parts and sensationalized. The main precepts of Happiness is exploration of the right mind. This also called the four fold path. 1 Give love to others, without thinking of your self. Love that truly wants Happiness of others, love that wants to help people make there community and society better. Love that forgive others and guide others. 2 Wisdom the development of your true self and the study of great people before us like Shakyamuni Buddha, Jesus Christ, Confucius and Socrates, but also people like Helen Keller, Ghandi, MLK, Marcus Aurelius, James Allen, Napoleon Hill,... and the list can on... so studying Ryuho Okawa's teachings along with great people who built the foundation of our socity and integrating knowledge into your own experience is Wisdom, 3 the third is self reflection, Reflecting on your past thoughts and deeds and correcting your mistakes other words purifying your heart, forgiveness of self and others. 4 the last is progress which creating an ideal world. A prosperous society for all nations, all people, all cultures in the world yes utopia! This is just a small part of our teachings on path of enlightenment. If you want to awaken or seek enlightenment it starts from the development of your character. If you want to follow media like VICE it may lead to a dark road where you do not even know yourself or others divine nature. In other words you have lost your humanity.

Why do most religions rely on some savior like Jesus to come back and save the world as the chosen one yet everytime someone says they are the one they are not believed? How do they know? I guess that person has to turn wine into blood and bread to body. So sad people believe this crap. It’s all crap crap crap. The Bible’s are a beautiful collection of novels and that is ALL.

I agree the North Korean and Chinese regimes need to be overhauled and changed, countless Japanese lives and those of the opposing sides soldiers will be lost. Many of whom on the side of China and Korea dont realize how corrupt the people they're fighting for are and those who do know that dont have a choice in most cases.
