My Tdn E-Book: "a Treasury Of Druidic Triads"

Recommended Posts

Awens to All:


I originally registered onto this Message Forum while doing research for writing this E-Book on the subject of the Ancient Celtic Triads of Wisdom and Knowledge that Emma "Bobcat" Restall-Orr asked me to back at around last Winter Solstice. I responded by volunteering to write their Lesson on Tarot and Runes, but Bobcat said they already had someone doing that. Bobcat then asked if I could do research on the Ancient Sacred Triads of Wisdom and write a Lesson on that subject.


Being a writer of 3X3 Triads of Wisdom Compositions, I eagerly agreed. I spent the next few weeks downloading and reading every Sacred Triad of Wisdom that is available on the Internet and then upon Imbolc, starting writing the Lesson. It turned into a 666.3 KB 51 Page Book chronicalling all the various Triads of Wisdom, Knowledge and Modern Sayings that there ever has been.


Last Summer Solstice, it was finished being Editted and Published and I thought it was about time that I shared my writing project with all you guys. It is free to view and can been read over by clicking on:




I hope you guys enjoy it!

I have been a vehement composer of Triads of Wisdom and have taken to composing something that I call the “3X3 Triad Of Wisdom” compositions, which I mainly compose for the occasions of the sacred Sabbaths of Samhain, Imbolc, Beltane, and Lughnasad. I got the term 3X3 from a Paganistic Spell of the Bellyrmine Jar in which the I found a line that went “By The Power Of Three Times Three, So Mote It Be!”.

Here are Three of them.

I wrote this one on the plane while flying back from my 2006 Pilgrimage to The Stonehenge that I call “When On a Summer Sosltice Pilgramage” :


When on a Summer Solstice Pilgramage -


- One should Pay Respects to the Spirits of Ones Ancestors

- One should Retrace the Footsteps of One's Past Incarnations.

- And to Free Oneself of Ones Negative Emotional Energies.


Where to Celebrate the Summer Solstice -


- At Three Different Places of Tranquility.

- Where One can Cleanse and Purify Oneself.

- And at a Peaceful Place that can be Enjoyed with Others.


What to Wish for at a Summer Solstice Gathering -


- Peace between your Fellow Gatherers.

- To be able to Share Good Spiritual Energies with Others.

- And to have Gratitude for Help Received from Others.




By Paying Respects to the Spirits of your Ancestors -

- You then give Gratitude for the Mortal Shell of your Present Incarnation which they Provided you with.

- You Acknowledge the Traditions they have Passed Down to You.

- You Learn Wisdom from their Records and Histories.

When Retracing your Past Incarnation's Spiritual Path -

- You Learn Wisdom from their Records and Histories.

- You gain Insight on where your Capabilities are Based On.

- You come to Accept what your Limitations are.


By Cleansing Oneself of Ones Negative Emotional Energies -

- One is then Spiritually Free.

- You gain Peace within Yourself.

- And Ones Past Life’s Evils can then be Overcome.




When Practicing your Ancestor's Traditions -

- You become Spiritually Attuned to the Cycles of Life.

- You then gain Respect for the Good Karmanic Energies of Others.

- You Gain Good Bondings with Friends and Family.


Where are Three Great Places of Tranquility -

- The Glastonbury Tor Tower.

- The Avebury Circle of Stones.

- And at Old Sarum Castle.


How to Overcome the Evils of Ones Past Life --

- Acknowledge the Problem of One's Past Evils.

- Gather into a Circle of People who are Fighting the Past Evil Together.

- Then Gain the Strength to Cast Off the Yoke of that Devil's Power.

This 3X3 Triad Poem is based on something I read in the Book "Buddhism Explained" by the British Buddhist Monk Bhikkhu Khantipalo.

In the Book, he explains the Buddhist Word "Dukkha" which he says has no English Word associated with it and it is a bit hard to explain. So I decided to write a 3X3 Triad Poem for Samhain that explains the various meanings of this Buddhistic Concept.

I had been working on this 3X3 Triad Poem for quite some time but finally got to it and wrote it out on the evening of Robin William's Death. It was on that date that I came up with the Triad about Bad Dukkha happening to those you are Rich and Famous as well as the Poor. It was on the day of Robin Williams Death that gave me the impotis to get this 3X3 Triad Written, so this 3X3 Triad is also dedicated to Robin Williams as well as the Book by Bhikkhu Khantipalo.

So it goes-

3X3 Triad "Dukkha Explained":

Buddhistic Dukkha Is:

- Distress,

- Disappointment,

- And Disatisfaction.

Humanity's Dukkha Is Created By:

- Evil Intention,

- Careless Complacency,

- And In Ones Imagination.

*Dukka Is Pains Of:

- Sickness,

- Aging,

- And Death.


Distress Comes From:

- Accidents,

- Abandonment,

- And Petty Admonishments.

Disappointment Is Caused By:

- Not Getting Hired,

- Getting Fired,

- And Not Getting Paid.

Life's Disatisfactions:

- Being Taken For Granted,

- Ignored,

- Or Unappreciated.


Dukkha Happens To:

- The Rich,

- The Famous,

- As Well As The Poor.

Destructive Dukkha Is Hard To:

- Temper,

- Control,

- And To Moderate.

*Occasional Dukkha Brings:

- Wisdom,

- Awakenings,

- And Enlightenment.



The Triads with the '*' before it are once taken from the Book, so I have to give credit for those one with Bhikkhu Khantipalo.

Here is my 2012 Samhain 3X3 Triad of Wisdom and it once again adresses some of the Dark Issues of

Life in this Sabbath that takes place during the Darker Time of the Year. I have decided to post it here

since the Manx Forums Thread about Muslims insisting on getting preferential treatment access to

Crematoriums reminded me of this thread.

This 3X3 Triad is based on the fact that I have had some Personal Problems and Issues recently to

the point that I went to my Favorite Buddhist Temple and asked the Buddhist Priest whether or not

this Life on Earth is actually a Life in an Upper Plain of Hell.

The Buddhist Priest replied that in order to get to a Better Plain of Existance for one's Next Life,

to make sure to work on keeping ones Mind as Peaceful and Tranquil as possible.

But since I have been thinking that this Life on Earth is actually an more Benevolent Upper Plain of

Hell, I have wrote a 3X3 Triad dedicated to pointing out the things that indicate that this Life is

actually an Upper Plain of Hell where we all are made to Suffer so many Pains and Sorrows all the


And for this 3X3 Triad, I was able to think of so many Triads of Wisdom that shows how this Life is

actually an Upper Plane of Hell that I could write another similar one in the Future that I could

call "Whilst In A Life In Hell" or something like that.

For this particular 3X3 Triad, all of the Triads all start with the same line, which is something

I have done in Past 3X3 Triads.

So here is my 2010 Samhain 3X3 Triad which is called 'In This Life In Hell' and it goes:

In This Life In Hell:

- There Is Illnesses,

- Diseases,

- And Chronic Suffering.

In This Life In Hell:

- There Is Genocidal Wars,

- Territorial Wars,

- And Religious Wars.

In This Life In Hell:

- There Is Betrayals,

- Treacheries,

- And Scams.


In This Life In Hell:

- There Are Psychopaths,

- Controloholics,

- And Megalomaniacs.

In This Life In Hell:

- There is Arguements,

- Issues,

- And Disagreements.

In This Life In Hell:

- There Are Weird Accidents,

- Things Going Wrong,

- And Stupid Mistakes.


In This Life In Hell:

- There is Intolerance,

- Inconciderate Acts,

- And Incompetence.

In This Life In Hell:

- There is Child Abuses,

- Parent Abuses,

- And Spousal Abuses.

In This Life In Hell:

- There is Unhealthy Needs,

- Desires,

- and Addictions.

- And You Start Taking Personal Criticisms Too Negatively.

When One Has Greed:

Damage Caused By A Lifeforms Who Believe Themselves Created In A Godlike Image:

Who swallowed a packet of seeds.


In less than an hour,


His dick was a flower


And his arse was a patch of weeds ...

Across grassy hills and banks.

I stood upon a blokes bare arse,

And a woman's voice said "Thanks".

She stood on the bridge at midnight,

Her lip's were all a-quiver,

She gave a cough-

Her leg fell off,

And floated down the river.
