It looks very much as though they would like to 'take over' Thailand, if not the whole world, religiously speaking (and who knows, maybe politically too).
Everything that arises, passes away ...
That's particularly true of religious groups which come from nowhere and centre on individual leaders. Look at (for instance) Transcendental Meditation, the Moonies (Unification Church), Hare Krishna and Heaven's Gate - very different from each other but sharing a boom-and-bust trajectory.
