“Inculturation” is a term used by Christians (primarily Catholics) to describe the process by which Church teachings can be slowly introduced into non-Christian cultures. The Catholic Church is notorious for using “inculturation” as an inroad into non-Christian culture. Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s day… these are all ancient pagan holidays which were eventually given Christian meaning through the process of inculturation. Well the process of inculturation has not ended and the Catholics are up to their old tricks, but this time they are targeting the Yezidis and Hindus. Mark Pinkham is a Catholic Templar who is heavily invested in using the Yezidis and their peacock angel Melek Taus as an inculturation agent in India. He has written books relating Christ to Melek Taus and Melek Taus to the Hindu god Murgan. It is his specific aim to meld the three religions together into a form of “Hidzianity” whereby Melek Taus and Murgan become one and the same, but both are eventually revealed as Jesus. In his crusade, he is receiving help from the ISKONite Brannon Parker… this makes sense since ISKON has a similar inculturation agenda of spreading Jesus and Bible veneration.
The Templar Mark Pinkham
& Catholic “Inculturation”
Mark Pinkham is an Esoteric Catholic Templar
The Knights Templar are a well known esoteric arm of the Catholic Church, and Mark Pinkham counts himself among their members. Inculturation is a term used in Christianity, especially in the Roman Catholic Church, referring to the adaptation of the way Church teachings are presented to non-Christian cultures, and to the influence of those cultures on the evolution of these teachings. In keeping with the Vatican’s eternal agenda of inculturation, Mark Pinkham founded an organization called the “International Order of the Gnostic Templars” who’s agenda it is to inculturate goddess worship and and other paths with Catholic teachings. His recent book “Guardians of the Holy Grail: The Knights Templar, John the Baptist and the Water of Life” attempts to place the Garden of Eden and the lineage of the “Holy Grail” prophets such as Jesus and John the Baptist inside the Indian island of Sri Lanka. You will come to see that Mark Pinkham is obsessed with bringing Christ to India, in some way, shape or form, including his “Hidziantity” religion.

Guardians of the Holy Grail: The Knights Templar,
John the Baptist and the Water of Life
Guardians of the Holy Grail: The Knights Templar, John the Baptist, and the Water of Life presents a unique history of the Knights Templar and the legendary Holy Grail that has never before been published. For nearly one thousand years the Knights Templar have rightly been regarded the eternal guardians of the Holy Grail, but what the Holy Grail actually is has never been accurately revealed – until now. Guardians of the Holy Grail proves that the Holy Grail existed many thousands of years before Christ, and that it is as old as the Garden of Eden itself.
During their one hundred years in the Middle East, the Templars received the Holy Grail from a lineage of Holy Grail Guardians that had existed for many thousands of years previously. This ancient Grail lineage, which included John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, and Mary Magdalene and John the Apostle, had originated on Sri Lanka, the island paradise recognized within the Arab world as the true location of the fabled Garden of Eden.
Topics in this book include: The Ancient Lineage of the Holy Grail Masters; The Garden of Eden, origin of the Holy Grail Mysteries; John the Baptist and the Mandeans from Sri Lanka; The Mystery of Baphomet, the Templar “demon”; The Gnostic & Tantric rites of the Knights Templar; Alchemy & the Mystery of the Black Madonna; Rosslyn Chapel and the Sinclairs of Scotland; The Secrets of the Freemasons and Johannites; The Knights Templar Today
Mark Pinkham becomes interested in connecting Yezidis, Hindus and Christ
Being a Catholic Templar and a man adept at “inculturation”, finding novel ways to invade non-Christian cultures with Catholic teachings, Mr. Pinkham eventually became extremely interested in the Yezidi. In his book “THE TRUTH BEHIND THE CHRIST MYTH: THE REDEMPTION OF THE PEACOCK ANGEL“, Mr. Pinkham thoroughly explores the connections between the Yezidi peacock angle Melek Taus and the Christian Jesus Christ. He also uses the peacock form of the Yezidi angle Melek Taus as a bridge to the Hindu god Murgan, who rides a peacock. You will see his Yezidi-Hindu peacock angel hybrid is the pavement used for Mark Pinkham’s inroad of Catholic Christ cultism into India.
Mark Pinkham creates “Hidzianity”
On September 24th, 2014, Mark Pinkham was interviewed by the popular online tabloid, Covert Wires. After doing the research for his book “THE TRUTH BEHIND THE CHRIST MYTH: THE REDEMPTION OF THE PEACOCK ANGEL“, Mark Pinkham had the intellectual ammunition he needed to meld the Yezidi religion, Hinduism and Christianity all together into one new mess of “Hidzianity”. According to Mark Pinkham’s new theology, The Yezidi’s Melek Taus, the Hindu Murgan, and the Christian Satan/Christ are all one and the same! And so the Catholic agenda of inculturation is revealed.
CW: Final question for today. Some people, in particular the Muslims and Christians are trying to show the Yezidis as Abrahamic and that Tawsi Malik is not Sanat Kumara but the Biblical “Lucifer” the Satan. What’s your opinion regarding this?
Mr. Pinkham: Lucifer is a fabrication of the Christians. However, his legend is similar to the legend of Tawsi Melek. The both fell from pride. But they also both brought the teachings of enlightenment to Earth. The Christians and Moslems claim that Lucifer is the same as Satan. He is not. Satan is God’s power of Destruction and Christ is God’s power of Creation. They sit on either side of Sanat Kumara, who is YHVH, the Ancient of Days. Lucifer-Tawsi Melek- Murugan – they are the first form of the invisible God. They are Satan and Christ united together – just as all humans are. In fact, when they came to Earth they became the Planetary Logos (mind and will) and the Collective Consciousness of Humanity. All humans are living out the evolutionary program that they brought to Earth. Many believe that Murugan or Kartikeya – “Son of the Pleiades,” brought this program from the Pleiades. This is the “Luciferian” program of a fall into matter, development of “Satanic” ego and individuality,and then finally union with the inner Christ. The world has to understand that the peacock angel is the manifestation of “Sanat” and not at all “Satan”.
Mark Pinkham begins aggressively preaching “Hidzianity”
Mark Pinkham accused of being a religious fraudster
Readers may want to note that Mark Pinkham and his Sedona compound have been reported to “RipOff Report” for propagating a “Knights Templar Cult” which promotes wild conspiracy theories and may even engage in extremely “deviant” conduct as part of cult ritual. Mark Pinkham does deny these allegations however.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company Complete Nonsense
AUTHOR: Mark -() SUBMITTED: Monday, March 25, 2013
This report about Mark Amaru Pinkham was filed by a disgruntled woman who was not able to recoup the money she spent to register for a seminar in Sedona on 12.21.2012 that was organized by Mark because she cancelled her participation during the period when refunds were not allowed. The refund policy of the seminar was no different than those adopted by most seminars. The allegations this woman makes are complete nonsense. She does not know Mark Amaru Pinkham personally, nor does she know anything about the rites and the lineage of the Knight Templar organization he is currently the head of in Sedona, Arizona. Apparently the so-called sex practices she refers to are ones that the Knight Templar were alleged to have indulged in 700 years ago, although that was never proven. The International Order of Gnostic Templars led by Mark Amaru Pinkham is a well respected organization that observes practices that were inherited by the early Templars in the Holy Land and passed down to them directly from John the Baptist and John the Apostle. There are no sexual practices or rites observed whatsoever in the organization.
Mark Pinkham wants his Arizona base to become a “Universal Sanctuary”

Mark Pinkham’s ISKONite Lackey
Vrndavan Brannon Parker
Brannon Parker, well known ISKONite in USA
Brannon Parker’s affiliation with ISKON is well known in the United State, he was once associated with many Hindus here, however, his constant begging for air and hotel fairs to travel to Hindu conferences gave him a negative image as a beggar. He disappeared from the American Hindu scene and eventually reappeared in India. It is not surprising to his former beneficiaries that Brannon Parker has ended up pushing “Hidzianity” in tandem with Mark Pinkham.
Brannon Parker found “Yezidi Sanatan Dharma Society”
Brannon Parker is the founder the the Yezidi Sanatan Dharma Society, an organization with the mission to acculturate both the Yezidi and the Hindus, negating their unique identities and grouping them together. The Yezidi Sanatan Dhamra Society references’s Mark Pinkham’s “Yezidi Truth” website on their facebook page and they are just as driven to equate the Yezidi Melek Taus with Hindu Murgan. Yes, the two organizations work together. While Mark Pinkham fuses Melek Taus and Murgan from the Christian side, Brannon Parker fuses Malek Taus and Murgan from the Hindu side. But the agenda is the same, link all three religions into “Hidzianity” which can be used as in inculturation agent by Catholics.
Brannon Parker/Yezidis Sanatan Dharma Society aggressively push the Melek Taus-Murgan hybrid
by Nallein Satana Al-Jilwah Sowilo and Vrndavan Brannon Parker
There is a prophecy, which the Yezidis believe, that says all Aryan tribes will be united in spiritual harmony as one people. No other time in history, but in the past 1,500 years have we seen this happen. The ongoing genocide of the Yezidis and the support of the Hindu Indians for the Yezidis, bring one of the last of the Aryans from Iraq, spiritually and culturally into the Hindu fold. These are our cultural allies. Here in a region plagued by religious exclusivity and religious homogeneity has survived an ancient people steeped in in the worship of Tawusê Melek, the Peacock King. These are a people who feel closer bonds to India than with the majority cultures surrounding them in the Middle East…
Nallein and Mr. Parker founded the Yezidi Sanatana Dharma Society (YSDS) to unite two related and ancient civilizations, the Indians and the Yezidis. Nallein Satana Al-Jilwah Sowil can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and Vrndavan Brannon Parker email@example.com.
ISKON also promotes Jesus
It should be no surprise that it is an ISKONite who is helping Mark Pinkham to achieve his Murgan = Melek Taus / “Hidzianity” goal. ISKON’s dogmatic attachment to Krishna and the Gita, and their condemnation of all other paths in Hinduism is well known. While such a sectarian position is not unique in Hinduism, and does not necessarily remove one from the Hindu fold, ISKON is unique in that, while they do condemn all other Hindu paths (they usually state they are not Hindus), they very heavily promote Jesus Christ and the Bible as an acceptable means to reach god. How is it that following a Hindu path not aligned with ISKON is considered immoral, yet being an adherent of Jesus and the Bible is encouraged? Even the founder of ISKON, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, admitted to being a follower of Jesus and promoted Bible reading, yet he condemned all other branches of Hinduism. ISKON is nothing but another pro-Christ invasion into Hinduism.
ISKON FOUNDER CALLED HINDUISM “USELESS, DRIED-UP”
Often Srila Prabhupada would simply deny the existence of a religion called “Hinduism.” He attributed the improper designation to “foreign invaders.” At other times he acknowledged the existence of the faith, but considered it a hopelessly degraded form of the original Sanatana Dharma of the Vedas. In his April, 1967, New York lectures he remarked, “Although posing as great scholars, ascetics, householders and swamis, the so-called followers of the Hindu religion are all useless, dried-up branches of the Vedic religion.” ISKCON, he believed, was the only true exponent of the Vedic faith today. In an interview given for Bhavan’s Journal on June 28, 1976, he said, “India, they have given up the real religious system, Sanatana Dharma. Fictitiously, they have accepted a hodgepodge thing which is called Hinduism. Therefore there is trouble.” – Can it Be That the Hare Krishnas Are Not Hindu?, Hinduism Today
Jesus praised by ISKON founder
ISKON founder: Jesus was an empowered incarnation of Krishna
Yes, Lord Jesus was jiva-tattva. He is not Visnu tattva. When a jiva-tattva becomes specifically empowered by the Lord, he is called saktyavesa avatara. Lord Buddha and Lord Jesus Christ were in this group of saktyavesa avatara.. But they were not in conditioned state when they appeared; they came to teach here. – http://krishna.org/you-are-not-eternally-conditioned-you-are-eternally-liberated/
ISKON founder: Jesus is a spiritual master, the bible is the book of a spiritual master, one can find perfection through Jesus
His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder Acarya of ISKCON and living Guru:
Girl devotee: Is Jesus in the parampara?
Srila Prabhupada:He says, “there is God. I am son of God”. That is parampara.
(Bhagavad gita Lectures 1975)
Tamal Krishna: Can a Christian in this age, without a Spiritual Master, but by reading the Bible, and following Jesus’s words, reach the…
Srila Prabhupada: When you read the Bible, you follow the Spiritual Master. How can you say without? As soon as you read the Bible, that means you are following the instruction of Lord Jesus Christ. That means that you are following the Spiritual Master.
Tamal Krishna: I was referring to a living Spiritual Master.
Srila Prabhupada: Spiritual Master is not question of…Spiritual Master is eternal…[…] As you say that “by reading bible”, when you read Bible that means you are following the Spiritual Master represented by some priest or some clergyman in the line of Lord Jesus Christ.
(Morning Walk, Seattle, 2.10.68.)
Srila Prabhupada: Actually, one who is guided by Jesus will certainly get liberation.
(Perfect Questions, Perfect Answers, chapter 9)
Srila Prabhupada: “This is called Guru parampara, disciplic succession..This is our process. We are getting knowledge from Krsna, the most perfect. Or you get knowledge from Jesus Christ, that is also perfect, because source is perfect.”
(Conversation, Germany 19.6.74)
“You must follow one acarya, like Christians, they follow Christ, acarya. […] You must follow some acarya … Evam parampara praptam.”
(Room Conversation, Melbourne, May 20th, 1975)
ISKON founders admits to being a follower of Christ
“Following Jesus Christ”
Tamala Krsna: Well, he quotes, “And then shall appear the sign of the son of man in heaven, and then shall all the tribes of earth mourn and they shall see the son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” In other words… “And shall he send…” There is so many statements in the Bible to allude that Christ will come again.
Prabhupada: What is the harm if he comes again?
Tamala Krsna: Practically that is the whole basis of the Christians’ faith is they are awaiting the day when Christ will come.
Prabhupada: For the time being, you follow what he has said. Rather, what is the use of waiting for him?
Belief in Vaishnavism and Christianity not contradictory
Jesus, the Vaishnavas, and the Spirit of Understanding
You know, I have never returned my Sunday School membership card or renounced Christianity. I still have my baptism certificate which, I understand, is still valid until you hand it back to the vicar asking to be ‘unbaptised.’ So that must mean I am still a Christian musn’t it? Just one with a slightly peculiar understanding of Jesus.
Jesus Christ is very important for me, and I would like to think that I understand him slightly better now – and appreciate his sacrifice more – than I ever did before.
You see, you don’t have to not believe in Jesus in order to be a Vaishnava; and you don’t have to wish ill towards Christians or anyone else.
Inculturation has been a tactic used by Catholics and Christians for centuries, it uses subtle cultural techniques to introduce Christ slowly into the host culture using its own legends and iconography. Mark Pinkham and his “International Order of Gnostic Templars” are nothing but a neo-inculturation Catholic agenda. They not only want to move the “Garden of Eden” and the line of Christ to Sri Lanka, they also want to connect Murgan, Melek Taus and Christ into one super inculturation cult of “Hidzianity”… but the object is always the same, make an inroad for Christianity. In his endeavor, Mark Pinkham and his Templar friends are being aided by the ISKONite Brannon Parker, this match is obviously “made in heaven” since ISKON has a similar motive of pushing pro-Jesus and pro-Bible attitudes unto Hindus in the guise of “Krishna Bhakit”. This conspiracy of course goes deeper than what has been presented here, Hindus must be vigilant against such inculturation scams.
