That document is THE LOST BOOK OF KUSHANKU and reveals the identity of the illusive master Kushanku.



Happy New Year 2016

The Okuden Circle wishes Happy New Year to the whole OC Family and to all other friends and Supporters around the world. Today is the 31st of December and we look back to an exciting and awesome Year.

Weihnachtszeit, Besinnlichkeit...

Das Jahr 2015 neigt sich dem Ende zu und es beginnt die schönste Zeit des Jahres. Die Familien kommen zusammen, es wird gut gegessen und man besinnt sich auf das was war und das was sein wird.

Traditionell wird mit dem Weihnachtsfest die Geburt Jesus Christus gefeiert mit dem eine frohe Botschaft der Liebe, Einheit, Brüderlichkeit und Menschlichkeit einher geht.

Benjamin Cem Gencoglu und das gesamte Team des Okuden Circle wünschen Dir eine wundervolle Zeit im Geiste der Weihnacht und einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr. Möge das neue Jahr auch für Dich viele frohe Botschaften bereithalten.


Merry Christmas...
