Tragedy of the Six Marys Video Transcript – with additional material.
Interviews with the early Unification Church members who were involved in the 1993 publication of the book: “The Tragedy of the Six Marys – the real Satan is Sun Myung Moon!!” The main author was Pak Chong-hwa.
The Japanese video was well researched and put together. It was broadcast on national TV in 1993 at the time the book was published. This transcript is a new translation of the full Japanese text.
It was not possible to fit all the content of the Japanese speech into English subtitles – and sometimes it was difficult to read all the subtitles before the video moved on. There was not sufficient time to display what the last interviewee said. Here is the complete text in English – with some additional material.
These are some Unification Church women who were tasked with attending the birth of the first human in history to be born without original sin (Ye-jin Moon) in 1961. These women have all inherited Sun Myung Moon’s blood lineage [through pikareum], and indemnified their original sin. Except for Ms. Yun [probably Yoon Jeong-hye], the woman second from the left who is single, the rest [have] husband[s]…..(text incomplete)
Rev Sun Myung Moon, the controversial founder of the Unification Church, has risen from obscure origins in his native Korea to become one of the most prominent (and wealthiest) religious leaders in the world.
Rev Moon has proclaimed himself as the messiah and Lord of the Second Advent. He is perhaps best known for officiating at mass weddings. Together with his wife they are known as the ‘True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind’.
The term ‘Heaven, Earth and Humankind’ comes from 天地人 ‘Cheon-Ji-In’ in Korean.
Many Unification Church banners in Korea and Japan display:
天地人 참父母님 = Cheon-Ji-In True Parents (examples)
Cheon-Ji-In is not the God of Judeo-Christianity. In Korean 天地人 ‘Cheon-Ji-In’ means the god of 天 heaven, 地 earth, and 人 humanity in the traditional beliefs, or shamanism, of Korea. The Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity / UC / FFWPU may display a Christian signboard, in an attempt to legitimize Sun Myung Moon or Hak Ja Han’s claims to be Christian messiahs. However, the rituals described in this video have their basis in Korean shamanism. They have nothing to do with the values and teachings of Jesus.
Sun Myung Moon’s pikareum sex rituals derive from the Korean shaman tradition and are comprehensible in that context. Rev Moon grew up in a Korea were tensions between the very strict Korean Confucian traditions and the more earthy shaman traditions were part of the inheritance of every Korean.
pikareum 피가름, pi = blood, kareum = separation or division.
In Japanese it is called chiwake「血分け」, blood replacement「血代交換」.
In the Unification Church the coded expression 「復帰」 ‘The return’ was used.
복귀를 = boggwileul = ‘the return’ = 피가름 = pikareum = sex ritual to ‘remove original sin.’
This picture was drawn imagining what it looked like when religious leader Moon’s mother was nursing Moon Yong-myung [as he was known before he changed his name to Moon Sun Myung]. Ok Se-hyun and Chi Seung-do, both women, and Kim Won-pil who all traveled with Moon from Pyongyang say the rendering of Moon’s mother is an accurate portrayal.
In this picture the angels are presenting religious leader Moon Yong-myung with a globe. In other words, the picture symbolizes the handing of authority over this world to religious leader Moon.

▲ Moon’s birthday in 1959 at the Chongpadong Church. Seen in the background is the drawing of angels bowing to Moon when he was a baby being nursed by his mother. Bo Hi Pak is standing on the right, and Hyo-won Eu is on the left.
Rev Moon’s teaching, the Divine Principle, explains the fall as based on an illicit sexual relationship between Eve and archangel Lucifer. Eve in turn seduced Adam. This introduced the element of original sin into our first ancestors.
Rev Moon frequently spoke about the ‘change of blood lineage.’ He claimed to have the authority to cleanse the original sin and purify the ‘satanic blood.’ Since 1962 this grace has been effected through the mass marriages which include the holy wine ceremony and the three day ceremony.
At the core of Rev Moon’s teachings is a demand upon his followers to adhere to an absolute standard of sexual purity and fidelity in marriage to restore the divine ideal.
In the early days, however, Rev Moon used an entirely different method called pikareum.

HE POSED AS THE SON OF GOD
There are many women who have been sexually abused.
The behavior of Moon, the leader of the Unification Church, attracts attention.
[ Full transcript and translation: Ewha University 1955 Sex Scandal ]
News article: “Many women and girls used as ‘play things’”
Subtitle: “Is this the behavior of ‘The Son of God’?”
Presenter: “When the number of believers steadily increased, the police went to investigate. There were allegations of ritual sex to cleanse people from original sin in the Unification Church. [Moon] was suspected of having sex with many innocent women [virgins] and was arrested, but was not charged due to insufficient evidence.”
[The parents of the girls were too embarrassed to let them give evidence.]
Film of the “Tragedy of the Six Marys” book being printed.
Presenter: “After 38 years of silence, one of the earliest church leaders speaks out about the real meaning of ‘The Return.’”
Subtitle: 「復帰」 ‘The Return’
[Korean 복귀를 = boggwileul = the return]
Mr. Pak: “There is something called ‘the return’ – it is sex. And you don’t have sexual intercourse not just once, but three times! In reality, the 血代交換 [pikareum = blood cleansing] is done by having ‘the return’ sex ritual.”
Presenter: “Former core members confirm that restoring the dirty sinful blood to the pure blood lineage of God’s original ideal was done through ritual sex. I wonder what those who participated in a mass wedding think?”
Subtitle: Blood purification, change of blood lineage = ‘The return’ [ = pikareum sex ]
▲ Rev Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church speaking in Korean:
“God created Adam and Eve. Their relationship is positive and negative, and God descends there vertically. The relationship between God and humanity is vertical, and the relationship between Adam and Eve is horizontal. This relationship is the same between the spiritual and physical!”
Presenter: “‘The Return’ ceremony was once a sex ritual. Later it was redesigned in the mass weddings [and presented as the holy wine ceremony and the three day sex ceremony].”
Interview with Tahk Myeong-hwan: “I could believe that the Unification Church was a sex cult because I have studied the teachings. Even though it was in the early days of the church, I was surprised to discover that it actually happened. Religion has to have a basis in reason and ethics. Without them, it is not a true religion.”
Director of the International Religious Studies Institute
Mr Tahk Myeong-hwan was attacked on February 18, after [he had given an] interview, by followers of the Korean new religion “Yeongsaeng-gyo”
He died at the age of 55.
[See “Yeongsaeng-gyo” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victory_Altar ]
Subtitle: East Seoul Police Remand Center
Presenter: “This man left the Unification Church. Now he works as a police pastor, offering music and prayers to prisoners, as his way of repaying for his past in the Unification Church. He performed sex acts in the name of restoration with a lot of women.”
[Additional information: Since he had a pikareum ritual sex with a woman already purified through pikareum sex with Sun Myung Moon, Pastor Kim believed he was doing ‘The Return’ sex to change the blood lineage of these women. He wrote 19 of the Unification Church Holy Songs during his time following Sun Myung Moon.]
Subtitle: Sex = A good job!
Presenter: “The former Unification Church members of Seoul are reluctant to say much. Mr Eu Hyo-min works informally as a counselor, helping people who are exiting the church. However, he did open up.”
[Additional information: He was the former president of the UC owned Yewha Shotgun company. Eu had several gun patents, but Sun Myung Moon asked that they be put in his name.]
Eu Hyo-min: “When I was in the church, we believed we were building the
Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, but in reality it was a dismal failure. Although I have close family who were blessed in the Unification Church… I came to this place, leaving those families behind, but I have never forgotten about them.”
Presenter: “[His sister], Eu Shin-hee, had ‘The Return’ sex ritual directly with Sun Myung Moon.”
Eu Shin-hee: “I wanted to receive ‘The Return’ when I entered Rev Moon’s personal bedroom. I was asked “Are you qualified?”, I said: “Yes I am qualified.”
He said: “You have to receive ‘The Return’ restoration three times, through the stages of formation, growth and completion.”
“After finishing the formation stage, I stood up and bowed. Outside the room there were older members sleeping. In that way I received restoration.”
Subtitle: Formation, Growth and Completion
Presenter: “She then went on to explain this.”
The presenter visited the orphanage and asked: “I heard that children of Unification Church members were put in this orphanage on the southern outskirts of Seoul.”
The orphanage receptionist speaks in Korean:
“After your telephone call I researched and found where there was one, and they left the orphanage in 1968, but we don’t have any earlier records now.”
Presenter: “I heard at the peak there were dozens of children here. What kind of life do they have now, after being abandoned here for their childhood, because of their parent’s belief? I went to see Shin-hee’s son.”
Presenter: “I have records saying that lots of children were put in orphanages during the early days of the Unification Church. Is that true?”
Gap Yoon-gil: “I don’t know if the Unification Church was responsible for sending us to the orphanage or not. My parents separated and we could not even eat, so we children were put in an orphanage. When I went to the orphanage I was six years old and the second son. My youngest sister was three. Well, I do have resentment in my heart towards the Unification Church. But I can’t do anything against that enormous organization. I have no choice but to give up and to live my life.”
Subtitle: The Lord of the Second Advent is Rev Sun Myung Moon
Presenter: “What happened to these people who entrusted their hopes and dreams in the second coming messiah? I wonder what they were really looking for, those who lost their dreams and their families.”
▲ Mr Pak Chong-hwa: “All things, including money, originally belonged to God and Satan’s people are now the ones using the things of the world.
You may steal anything of your husband’s and donate it to God. Although it is against the laws of the world, it is safe to say it is not against the laws of heaven, and so it is ok. I explained this many times.”
Subtitle: Dedicate everything to God!
Presenter: “The people he is visiting today are two sisters who used to be in charge of the cooking during the earliest days of the church. Back then they were cheerful and popular 20 year olds. Now they are in their 60s.”
Conversation in Korean:
Eu: “How long now have you been running this roadside bar?”
Yee: “I am not doing it because I like it.”
Eu: “We used to believe we would go to Heaven if we believed and followed…..”
Yee: “Don’t talk about the story of God…”
Eu: “If you have a difficult time, does anybody help you?”
Yee: “Let’s not talk about this anymore…”
Presenter: “The sisters, who were the two daughters of a farmer, gave everything to the Unification Church, both the house and the fields. Even if [the sisters] want to leave the Unification Church, they no longer have the willpower or the money to do so.”
Japanese interviewee 1: “This is strange. I don’t think I was like this before. I tried to reflect back on my past self, to remember how I was like and felt: ‘This is too different. What is this? Like lying to people a lot…what is going on?’ Then I came to understand that here, I was being manipulated mentally and my personality had been changed.”
These are not simply isolated stories. They are representative of similar experiences that many followers of Rev Moon went through.
