2023 El Cantare Celebration

Giving thanks to Lord El Cantare, Master Ryuho Okawa

“O, how long ago it was.
I existed before I created the great universe,
One hundred billion years ago.
It was my will that dictated the form, Which this universe took.
Then, I also created the Laws,
Which would be laid out across the universe.
The Laws are the blood vessels, and blood itself That flow through this universe. It is through the Laws,
That the universe appears as one majestic body.”

– The Eternal Buddha by Master Ryuho Okawa

Lord God El Cantare,

Master Ryuho Okawa


At Happy Science, the one created the Laws of the Universe, and is the Laws of the Universe Himself is called Lord God El Cantare. Master Ryuho Okawa is the core consciousness of El Cantare who has taken on human form for a brief period of time.

El Cantare has been known by different names in many faiths. “Lord God” in Christianity, “Elohim” in Judaism, “Allah” in Islam, “Tiandi,” or the emperor in heaven, referred to by Confucius of China, and the Creator God “Ame-no-Mioya-Gami,” whose profile remains unknown in Japanese Shinto, are just a few examples.

“There are a lot of struggles between many religions
and that’s a problem, of course.
That is the reason I was born now, on Earth.

I want to save people.
It means I want to stop the struggles between religions. The way to stop the
struggles is to combine all the religions
or show the real point of God’s teachings.
It’s a very crucial but hard work, I think.”

“Be Positive”
by Master Ryuho Okawa

El Cantare Celebration

Starting with “The Laws of the Sun,” Master Ryuho Okawa has published more than 3,150 books in order to close in on all the very secrets of the universe, to complete the Laws of El Cantare. It reveals that we exist as a result of a Will that created us, raises us to become infinitely good, and gives us chances to be reborn again and again. It reveals that the direction given to us is the pursuit of greater happiness and realization of infinite harmony and infinite progress, while embracing all kinds of individuals and diversity.

These Truths are what keep people’s mind warm and protected from materialistic and live-for-the-moment ideas that claim we only lie once – simply, delusions. This delusion is the darkness that Lord El Cantare, Master Ryuho Okawa, has come to fight, crush, and leave in its stead golden treasure for future generations.

Join us for the annual El Cantare Celebration.
On this day, we will give thanks to Lord El Cantare for revealing the Laws and
renew our pledge to keep spreading the Truth.
