1.  Is Master Okawa “the Deity” ?

In the following paragraph, Mr. Muhumuza presupposes Master Okawa is “the deity,” citing a Christian cleric’s criticism as it is.

Some Christian clerics have gone on the offensive, saying the religion should not be allowed to take root in Uganda. They are especially hostile to an essential part of Happy Science: that Okawa, the 55-year-old former market trader who started the religion in 1986, is also the deity.

However, as you find in the following teachings, Master Okawa is not the deity , i.e., monotheistic god. But He is the Supreme Being, whose name is El Cantare, who is God itself and has united and instructed all the other “the gods” such as Moses, Jesus Christ, Prophet Muhammad. This is why converts from Islam in this article says that “there’s a unity here, which was lacking within the Muslim community.”


Read Master Okawa’s lecture regarding this point:

――The following two excerpts are from the Q and A session of the Lecture titled “Love Surpasses Hatred” taught on May 18, 2012 at Headquarters.


“Conflicts occur around the name of God and the tendency for monotheistic beliefs. In Israel, they believe that things started off with Moses. At the time, Moses spent his younger days at an Egyptian palace. Egypt was of the Amun Ra faith, which was a form of monotheism. This had an effect on Moses, who chose the same form of religion for Israel. Moses was a psychic, and he could hear the voice of God. Yet, he misunderstood that God must be or should take the human form of a single being, and that other gods were either evil gods or primitive false idols.

However, Moses’ take was mistaken.

The being known as “God” has many levels of existence. Angels, lead angels, and other higher beings are all forms of God’s existence. They are permitted by God with a capital G to be titled gods. Hence, if we look around the world, we find many different names for God. […]

Happy Science teaches the existence of a Supreme Being called El Cantare. We believe this God has appeared in the Middle East with the name Elohim, and is the Love of God and a Supreme Being. […]

Mohammed was not omniscient or all-powerful, and is presumably still not. He couldn’t see what God looked like. Neither could he hear His true voice, but listened to it instead through Gabriel. The messages were received through Gabriel, and he believed that these were messages from the only God, Allah.

However, this is based on a misunderstanding. There is a section of the Qur’an that can be understood as stating there were 40 different higher spirits that sent messages to Mohammed, which brings about some confusion. Mohammed founded a monotheistic religion without knowing who the God was.

We, at Happy Science, believe that El Cantare, who has been known in the Middle East as Elohim, is the true Supreme Being in this region as well. Hence, I believe that if these two nations (Israel and Iran) could come to understand this, and believe in the same Supreme Being, reconciliation would be possible.

The real cause for confusion and conflict lies in the concepts of God. Only Elohim, which is to say, only El Cantare holds power. It is El Cantare who has the rights to make all of the final decisions about the world of the gods. If they can understand that, they will cease to kill one another. Whether this can be achieved, depends on the work that we do.”


“There are a lot of religions spread throughout the various countries and regions of the world. However, sometimes what is needed is to recognize that there is a more powerful, more enlightened, and more empowered teacher who exists both in this world and in the heavens, and who constantly guides the other teachers. If they can have this concept, the confusion would come to an end.

The characteristic of El Cantare’s love is that it is cosmic. It is a cosmic love that has been interwoven through a cosmic consciousness. As I explained in my book, there are humanoids and human-like beings living in other locations in space and on other planets.

These people are significantly different from humans in appearance, but they also receive the teachings from “the Origin of Love,” which flows directly out of the Spring of Love. The name of this “Spring of Love” is El Cantare. El Cantare is the tree of the universe. El Cantare is the tree of the universe of life, and El Cantare is the heart which is the birthplace of every human-like being.

If you are preoccupied with beliefs related to countries, areas, or the traditional names for God, then I would ask you to set that notion aside for one moment, and think about the universe. There are countless Earth-like stars. On these stars, countless numbers of human-like beings are studying.

They have a principle, which came from El Cantare. El Cantare has taught them that love is the beginning and the end of everything. They are taught that, “Love is the beginning. Love is the ending. Between them, a lot of adversities exist, but you can accumulate wisdom through your experience.” You will finally end with the name of love. That is the main point of El Cantare’s teachings.”
