Master Ryuho Okawa’s Lecture “The Power to Believe”
The Power to Believe That Will Overcome World Conflicts
Master Ryuho Okawa, founder of Happy Science, gave a public lecture on the 11 of February, entitled “The Power to Believe”. 5000 people gathered at Beacon Plaza in Oita Prefecture, Japan. And the lecture was also broadcast live all over Japan.
Looking back to the 1980s when Master Okawa quit his job to start Happy Science, he reflected over how the people around him opposed the idea. And he reflected that over a long period of time, Happy Science has started to gain recognition.
Happy Science’s opinions are gathering great attention in the political and business circles. Master Okawa also spoke on the Trump administration, which is now being criticized for the Mexico “wall” idea and for prohibiting the entry of people from 7 Muslim countries:
“America will once again become like America, a teacher and protector to the world.”
Master Okawa also predicted that given the current U.S.-China relations, a small war will break out some time in the next 4 or 5 years.
Master Okawa emphasized that ‘ways of thinking’ and ‘ideals’ are essential in overcoming conflicts.
“Only when you recognize a greater power can two conflicting parties actually forgive each other and come to an understanding.”
The reason why Happy Science is publishing so many of Master Okawa’s books and spiritual messages, is to spread the teachings of a greater power: the godly spirits. Our eyes cannot see God; that is why we believe. And when believers gather, it becomes an unbelievably powerful force.
Master Okawa closed the lecture with these words:
