OUR FOUNDERS

The Profound Lives of our Timeless Teachers

Through earnest prayer at age 16, Rev. Sun Myung Moon uncovered the mystery of God’s providence, the reason for human suffering and new insights into history that would eventually make up the core teachings of the Unification Movement. The legacy he left behind is one that continues to grow. As Mother Moon continues his work, his words and works continue to inspire people from all around the world to live a life of gratitude, peace and love.
