Books, Words for Life


Words for Life, Ryuho Okawa

“I hope you'll browse the book

in trains, buses, or before going to sleep,

meditate on the phrases and reflect on yourself.”

—From Afterword

Ryuho Okawa, the internationally renowned author, has written over 3,100 books on various topics, including life, religion, world affairs, business management, happiness, and so on.

To help readers find the teachings that are beneficial for them out of the extensive teachings, the author has written 100 phrases and put them together in this book.

We recommend that you keep this book by your side or by your pillow. Casually flip to a page, ponder on the words of wisdom that catch your

eyes, and contemplate on yourself.

A simple routine like this will surely help you improve your mindset, change you into a more capable and insightful person, and lead you to live a meaningful and happy life.

Inside you will find words of wisdom that will help you in these situations:

  • When you are scolded or criticized
  • When you envy someone
  • When you are suffering from romantic relationships
  • When you are self-conscious of your appearance
  • When you want to open new doors to the future, etc

Afterword, Commentary

It seems difficult for young people, or those who have been exposed to the truth only recently, to extract from my large collection of books the teachings that they need now. So, I wrote out a hundred short sentences in one day, titled "Words for Life. 

I hope that you will flip through it on the train, on the bus, or before going to bed at night for reflective meditation. 

Note that while writing this manuscript, I repeatedly listened to the song "Tokimeki no Toki (Awakening)" written and composed by Ryuho Okawa for inspiration. This book may also serve as a commentary on this song.
