Natural Awakenings Tampa Florida

Immortal Hero Comes to Tampa

Japan’s fastest growing spiritual movement reaches western shores with the new inspirational film, Immortal Hero, opening on October 25, in Tampa. This is the story that inspired Ryuho Okawa to lead Happy Science, Japan’s progressive spiritual movement for more than 30 years.

The film is based on the true story of the near-death experience that compelled Makoto Mioya, a highly successful Japanese writer and publisher, to devote his life to spreading the truth he received from the spiritual realms and masters. Immortal Hero is his dramatic, inspiring story of miraculous healing from a fatal heart condition.

As part of the recovery process, Mioya writes about his powerful “rebirth” as an enlightened and transformed teacher. Although he faces challenges at home and abroad, Mioya promises to use the second chance at life with which he has been blessed to make a positive difference for as many people as possible. He commits to “die for the truth,” a powerful covenant that defines the purity and intensity of his message of love, our mutual responsibility for one another and world peace.
