Celtic Illumination, part 14, Dali Lama and cross dressing

To those of you who have made it this far along the route to becoming a prospective apprentice master candle maker I salute you.  But I must also warn you, from here on in the tasks become even more difficult and the commitment much more demanding.  I would ask you to understand that at this stage we are only about to being making a model for our first candle.  Please realise that making a Celtic Knot Love heart candle is a simple task when compared to creating a Tartan Candle not to mention the ever growing range of Craic Pots, all of which can be safely viewed on the website or through the Facebook page.

If you feel that you have the moral fibre to follow this path then please remember that Caine told us,  ” I seek not to know the answers, but to understand the questions.”

I find it interesting that many of you have asked me if you should try to have you male offspring entered into Violent Hell, where they could be educated and prepared for the position that is Master Candle Maker.  What you must understand is that the vocation of Master Candle Maker chooses you, not the other way about.  I had been singled out as a possible candidate for Master Candle Maker from birth.  In fact the science of choosing and training a Master Candle Maker is so successful and precise that it has been copied by various religions and sects all over the world.  The best known of these being how the Tibetans choose a new Dali Lama.

Another factor is that Violent Hell has an entrance exam, which many fail, however I think you should know that it is compulsory to take this entrance exam while wearing short trousers.  This of course is so that the priests can select only those boys with good looking legs, which of course is a requirement of the Master Candle Maker when he reaches the cross dressing stage of his vocation.

About celticillumination

Celtic Illumination produces unique Celtic themed candles/craic pots and Tartan Candles. It is (as far as we can tell) the only company in the world to produce 'real' Tartan candles. Most tartan candles are plain candles with a tartan sticker applied. These Tartan Candles have a Tartan pattern run all the way through the candle. Rather than the old adage of "pile it high and sell it cheap" Celtic Illumination does not import in bulk from Asia, or anywhere else for that matter. instead of filling a whiskey glass or tea cup, with wax and adding a wick, we have created something Celtic. Hand made, hand finished, from scratch in our workshop. Even the Celtic Knot range of candles are made from scratch in our workshop, Each candle has a 10mm deep Celtic knot that runs all the way around the candle, other companies stick their Celtic knots on with glue or something similar. Celtic Illumination claim to be the best candle company in the world and they probably are.
