There have been great woman teachers and leaders, women notable in every walk of life, but no woman has ever before actually founded and established a powerful religious sect, and has so guided and directed its energies that its adherents are now numbered by the hundreds of thousands and its material wealth counted by the millions, and which is recognized by students of religious phenomena as one of the most remarkable manifestations of the kind the world has ever seen.
