Definition of a Triskelion

A Triskelion is the conglomeration of the Three Dynamic Forces of the Universe; namely:

Fortis, Voluntas, Fraternitas

Fortis is the inner and outer strenght. The inner strenght or Inner Fortis is composed of the Tau Gamma Principles which is the source of power of every Triskelion. The outer strenght or the outer Fortis is the physical strenght as everyone commonly knows.

Voluntas is Free Will.

Fraternitas is Brotherhood.

The Tau Gamma Principles / The Tau Gamma Way of Life/ The Inner Fortis according to r. zamora

We, as members of the Triskelion’s Grand Fraternity otherwise known as the Tau Gamma Phi, in our pursuit of tranquility, fulfillment of our hopes and aspirations, and profession of our unity should--- in addition to our Tenets and Codes of Conduct----- live by these principles:

Principle I: Self sacrifice. A Triskelion shall put the well being of other Triskelions before his.

Explanation: Explains itself. But in addition, if you join Tau Gamma, be prepared to give time, effort and money for free. Expect nothing in return.

Principle II: A Triskelion means love of God and Country.

Explanation: When you excel, you become a reflection of the Supreme Being. When you excel, it is for the betterment of the Philippines, it’s people, the Filipino people. Kapatirang Makabayan.

Principle III : Education. A Triskelion sees education as the currency to success. Knowledge is power.

Explanation: Means go to school, get an education. Education includes trade, vocational, college. The more educated you become the more oppurtunities you have, the more influential you become.

Principle IV: Triskelion despises a drug dealer, the ultimate criminal of society.

Explanation: Drugs is the poison of society. It destroys the future of the Philippines. A Triskelion is drug free.

Principle V: The Focused Mind: A Triskelion knows what he wants and gets what he wants.

Explanation: Means a Triskelion is goal oriented. He sets his mind on his goal and puts a 100% effort to achieve that goal. Finish what you started. Multi-tasking. Attention to detail.

Principle VI: Finances. A Triskelion is shrewd in money but is honest. He is calculating in business, property, occupation, money with respect to other people. He is the excellent money manager.

Explanation: Means a Triskelion is a wise investor and a good businessman. He’s a hustler with regards to money. He maintains good accounting records so he knows where he stands financially. With his principles, he is the person holding the money. In addition to this, a Triskelion--- being a hardwork and with his burning desire for excellence--- he ends up being the manager, the supervisor, the business owner, the landlord, the topnochter, the scholar, the professional, the decision maker. And if you want something done, go to him.

Principle VII: A Triskelion shall voluntarily remit what he/she can afford to his Tau Gamma Phi Chapter Treasury.

Explanation: The Tau Gamma Chapter after the individual Triskelion is the basic unit of the fraternity. All organizations need money to maintain it’s administrative functions, finance it’s projects, give support to other Triskelions.

Principle VIII : Pain. A Triskelion can endure excessive physical pain. It’s his mind over his physical body.
Explanation: Literally means what it says. He applies this principle to his work, study, profession. It's the extra mile that he can put in despite the pain.

Principle IX: A Triskelion is a family man. He takes care of his family.

Explanation: Means a Triskelion provides food, housing and education to his family. It also means providing love to his family like dating his partner in life, taking her out to movies, taking kids to basketball, etc.These things doesn't necessarily mean fancy meals or extravagant outings. It is spending quality time to your family. It's what you put rather than what you receive from your family that is important. Tau Gamma Phi is an advocate in strenghtening the filipino family.

For a young Triskelion, that means respecting your parents like being polite to them, helping in the house, do your homework. Go get a job if you are a stand-by.

Principle X: Physical Fitness: A Triskelion takes care of his physical body and his looks.

Explanation: Means we must not be fat so we can avoid diabetes, high blood, heart attacks. A Triskelion ideal body is that like of Arnold Swazenhager. As for Looks dapat laging nag-papa-pogi(make one’s self handsome). Follow the TGP Dress Codes. It will make you look sharp and feel good about yourself.
This is the reason why there are no ugly Triskelions. Walang pangit na Triskelion.

Principle XI: A Triskelion is a hard-working tenacious competitor.

Explanation: This is a literal meaning. A Triskelion never easily gives up but has the judgement to know when to cut his loses. He knows how to re-group and look into himself and come up with better ways to approach problems. He is also a risk taker but avoids un-necessary risk. Kick the procrastination habit.

Principle XII: Remembrance. February 13 is Tau Gamma Phi Remembrance Day.. Remember the fallen and those who gently passed away.
Explanation: Self explanatory.

Principle XIII: The Tau Gamma Phi Multiplication Principle means Triskelions multiply. Everyday is recruitment day.

Explanation: Triskelions multiply.Our population should always go up. Recruitment is a never ending thing in Tau Gamma. Tau Gamma promises a successful career, lifelong frienships, and a good life.We share its benefits to the World and it is free.

Principle XIV: The Tau Gamma Phi demands the best of every Triskelion in his field of interest and endeavor and accepts nothing less.
Explanation: Means what it says plus if you do a half-hearted work, you are just fooling yourself. If you do bad work, people would untimately know and that is the end of your career. Bad work is triskelion unbecomming. If you are a Triskelion, you are expected to do excellent work.

Principle XV: Every Triskelion deserves the respect of other Triskelions. It is a right.

Explanation: Acceptance into the Order of Triskelions is an accomplishment. Give respect to all fellow Triskelions even if there is a difference of opinion. Live and Let Live.

Principle XVI: A Triskelion shall use other people’s money to further his agenda;. but he pays back what he borrows.

Explanation: Borrowing other people’s money and investing it wisely is a multiplier of your financial capacity. Pay back what you owe so the money will be there the next time you need it.

Principle XVII: Delegation. A Triskelion shall inspire other people to further his agenda. This is includes hiring, influencing, delegating other people to attain your goal.

Explanation: Get other people to supplement the skills you do not have. Surround yourself with specialists. A Triskelion is the brain, the one who determines what is to be done and tells it to his subordinates. A Triskelion is the employer, not the employee. He is the landlord, not the renter. He is the Congressman, not the assistant of some lousy congressman.

Principle XVIII : A Triskelion shall communicate, coordinate, join forces with other Triskelions and Triskelion entities.

Explanation: Before school, in school, after school , or out of school, report to TGP groups,chapters, Councils, or TGP internet groups. Tau Gamma Phi is a Triskelions’ resource.

Principle XIX: Differences. At the end of the day, all Triskelions all over the world stand united. Triskelions do not fight other Triskelions.

Explanation: Means what it says. Ideas and proposals shall be debated, challenged for the good of the Frat. And what is good for the Frat shall always prevail. After the fire, comes the gold and we forget the arguments and be brothers united.

Principle XX: A Triskelion helps another Triskelion in need and expects nothing back.

Explanation: A Triskelion helps a brod in need and when that brod in need overcomes his dire situation, he will help other brods in the same situation he was originally in and so forth and so on. And this should be in the spirit of the Frat as we are Brothers.

Principle XXI: A Triskelion learns from his mistakes and he never commit it twice.

Explanation: A mistake is a learning experience for a Triskelion. When he is down, he never panics, whine, complaint, or blames other people. But rather, he picks himself up,
Thinks, and gets back to work as if nothing happened.

Principle XXII: A Triskelion is like chess player, he’s three steps ahead.

Explanation: Planning is the first step in achieving your goal. A Triskelion writes what we wants to accomplish and develops long term and short term strategies to reach that goal.. A Triskelion is both a thinker and a doer, a strategist and an excellent tactician. He can adapt to situations and change the situations to his advantage.

Principle XXIII A Triskelion prays at least once a day.

Explanation: Pray to whoever god you want to pray. Tau Gamma Phi believes in the existence of a Supreme Being but is not a religion. To whom you pray is none of the fraternities' business.

Principle XXIV : A Triskelion should amass Wealth. It’s a virtue.

Explanation: Self-explanatory. No Triskelion is poor. He’s not lazy. He’s not a helpless cry baby nor a hopeless pessimist but rather an optimist, a problem solver and makes the best use of what he has.

Principle XXV: A Triskelion picks his battles to win his war. He takes the initiative if there is a gain. He is cunning, calculating but never arrogant and never rush to judgement. He uses his intellect ratther than force.

Explanation: A Triskelion is wise and calculating. The Mind of a Triskelion is stronger than his physical strenght, the outer Fortis. A Triskelion has a Silent Moment. That is the time he thinks deeply.

Principle XXVI Common sense.

Explanation: Use your head.

With the help of the Almighty God, we live by these Tau Gamma Principles, Tenets and Codes of Conduct, the sources of our strength and power.

Tau Gamma Phi Oath of Allegiance

adopted from the People of the Philippines; Panatang Makabayan-Old version

Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas.
Ito ang aking lupang sinilangan.
Ito ang tahanan ng aking lahi.
Ako’y kanyang kinukupkop at tinutulungan,
Upang maging malakas, maligaya at kapakipakinabang.

Bilang ganti ay diringgin ko ang payo ng aking mga magulang.
Susundin ko ang mga tuntunin ng aking paaralan.
Tutuparin ko ang tungkulin ng isang mamamayang makabayan at masunurin sa batas.

Paglilingkuran ko ang aking bayan nang walang pag-iimbot at nang buong katapatan.
Sisikapin kong maging isang tunay na Pilipino,
sa isip, sa salita at sa gawa.

Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!!! Mabuhay ang Tau Gamma Phi!!!

1) Moderation in action, thought or feelings. We are reminded of the letter L in the Code of Conduct.

3) Honesty, morality and uprightness. We must be true to ourselves and to the ideals that we stand for and must
be genuine to others that we serve.

4) Renunciation of self for the sake of others. With self-denial, we are encouraged to give something without
expecting anything in return, not only for the sake of our brothers and
sisters but also for the sake of others.

5) Wisdom and understanding. We are constantly reminded to seek wisdom because it is only through knowledge
that we can understand the people and the world around us.

8) A Triskelion is Pure, sacred and whole. Our intentions must be transparent to all and clear to everyone, and above all
personal motives and self-serving ambitions.
