Three God Triad - Afterlife
The Religion of the Triad or Triadism , is a religion based on the life and teachings of the Great Prophet Rah-Jul and other prophets. The religion is articulated by the Writings, a book considered by its adherents as the true word of the Triad and its prophets. The religious scripture is a collection of Rah-Jul's words, parables, and examples to mankind. An adherent of Triadism is called a Triadian.
Triadians believe in three supreme beings who they call the Triad. They are described as divine and everlasting.
Philosophy and teachings
Rah-Jul (there is no record of his name before he is called Rah-Jul,) was a man born in Mehrgarh in the Indus river valley around 7000 BCE. He had a simple start in life as a farmer, helping his mother, Miil, around there mud brick house and farm. His mother always told him his father had died in an accident when he was a baby, and he always believed her, until around 6965 BCE. Where at the age of 35 he had a vision in which Dovrah, the Surpent God of Time, came to him and said:
"Son! I am Dovrah! the unworshiped God, the Serpent God of Time, and I am your Father! I shall tell you soon of the things of which you shall tell the people of the land!"
He then went and told his mother of what he had seen, and Miil was amazed and displeased. She had never thought that Dovrah would have come back to the earth to tell Rah-Jul that he was their child. For you see Miil had been one of Dovrah's many lovers while he was on the earth from 10,000 BCE till 7000 BCE, but she was the only one to get impregnated by him. As soon as she had given birth to Rah-Jul, Dovrah ascended back into the sky from where he came. Once Rah-Jul had heard of this he was terrified, for he said to his mother,
- "Mother whom hath birthed me, as surely as the son rises in the sky and sets in the earth, once the men of the village hear of this they shall surely wish to kill me!"
and his mother, Miil, spoke to him these words,
- "And pray to your father, Dovrah, that whosoever touches you to let them know death."
And Rah-Jul prayed those words and his fathers voice spoke to his mind saying, "And let it be so." And it was so from that very day that any man who touched Rah-Jul, fell to the ground dead. And that night Rah-Jul had a dream in which Dovrah spoke unto him this,
"Son! You shall no longer be called by your name of earth, but you should now be called Rah-Jul, for you are my son, the God-Man."
And he told his mother of this and she called him Rah-Jul, the God-Man. From then on he was given dreams and visions over the next five years from 6965 BCE till 6960 BCE. Until he was taken up to his father, Dovrah, to serve as the third head in the Triad.
There had only been two beings in the Upper Realm before Rah-Jul ascended into it. Dovrah, the Serpent God of Time, and Mindok, the All-knowing and Eternal One. Mindok is the God of all Knowledge, heavenly and earthly, Mindok knew when the earth began and when it shall end. Worship of is only done so for Mindok to grant a person it's knowledge. Almost nothing other than that is known, besdies Mindok's preferred gender, it is assumed that wherever Mindok came from there is no need for gender.
The Writings are sacred to the Triadians and no one can show them to unbelievers. Triadians are allowed to re-tell the stories that are in the Writings countless times. But Triadians are not allowed to let an unbeliever see them with their eyes. Even after an unbeliever converts to Triadism they don't immediately get to read or see the Writings. It shouldn't surprise to convert if they have to wait months or even a year, (some have even waited a few years) to get to read or see the Writings for themselves.
Discovery of the scripture
In 1855 CE a 35 year old british beggar turned explorer named Arthur, (his last name is lost) in Pakistan came across the ruins of Mehrgarh while traveling in India and Pakistan. When he went into the ruins he felt a holy presence in the place, and as he was going around the ruins he found an open staircase leading to a chest with the Writings contained inside written in an unknown language that Arthur was able to read and translate into English.
After he had discovered the Writings and left the opening in the ground, the ground closed up behind him to hide the chest and the staircase. Then he traveled around Pakistan and India preaching the message of the Writings, and he even got to take a boat to mainland Britain in 1858 CE. There he continued to preach until 1860 CE when he disappeared off of the face of the earth, and for that matter the minds of the unbelievers. But his followers in Britian, India, and Pakistan still had the Writings so they called a council of London in July of 1861 to keep the Writings on a believers eyes only basis, and to keep the religion a secret to all but there descendants.
And it would not be surprising if anyone's never heard of the religion before because of this. In 2011 CE there was a 2nd council of London and they decided that after one hundred-fifty years of being a very secretive religion that Triadians would start trying to convert parts of the world. Conversion is going very slowly but as of January 2014 CE there have been 567 converts in Britain, 124 converts in Pakistan, and 108 converts in India. For a total of 1,977 believers.
Churches and worship
Worship isn't a weekly event like in Christianity, Islam, Judaism, ect. In Triadism it is held whenever the believers are gathered into one place and feel ready to worship. Church service is usually held in someones home, but there have been a few open air services held in parks and other open areas, though they didn't draw to much attention. The service can have as many as 2 or more believers, there is no average number because of the spread of members. During a service, believers pray as peaceful music is played while incense is being burned.
It is believed that when one dies they go to the Upper Realm for eternity to abide with Rah-Jul, Dovrah, and Mindok forevermore to enjoy drink, food, and songs and dances. In this religion there is a "bad" afterlife. But nowhere near like the idea of hell in Christianity and Islam, (some have called it worse.) In this afterlife, known as the Void; a person is forever stuck in a black room filled with nothing but their empty spirit. This room is endless and has no sound or smell. Its believed people in it are able to feel the emptiness as it consumes them forever. Its said one would go insane from such torment.
