These are the Laws of the Druids as it was written down in Ancient times by Diogenes Laertius a Greek Author. This is a literal translation from the source.
“The Druids make their pronouncements by means of riddles and dark sayings, teaching that the gods must be worshipped, and no evil is done, and manly behavior maintained.”
Diogenes Laertius, “Vitæ”, intro., 5
Now the last one, there is much debate on what this truly means.
Manly behavior maintained
For me, it just means to maintain Oneself.
While having discussions with others that you don’t agree with one must maintain your attitude and not let your emotions get the better of you. Listen to others’ opinions as it might awaken a thought within yourself. Truly know you are not always right and it takes counsel to get to a better outcome. Also for me, it has nothing to do with Manliness.
The first two are pretty self-explained.
Honor the Gods
One must live in service to the gods. Active worship and celebrations. Daily offerings and acknowledgment.
Do no Evil
Treat others how you would want to be treated. Be of service to others with compassion. Have Justice on your side in times of disturbances. Never seek to gain only for the self.
There we have it, Laws from the Druids – these laws tell us a lot about the Druids.
One that Druids worshiped the Gods promoted peace and compassion with justice and exercised a need for balancing one’s behavior.
So below are the Laws of the Druids in this age we live in. The language is Gaulish what the Druids of old would have spoken. You will find that following these laws you become a better individual with a richer understanding of how to be.
