The lavishly illustrated tarot deck aids in achieving enlightenment through meditation. Osho Zen Tarot departs from traditional tarot in that it is not intended to be used for making predictions. Instead, it focuses on awareness of the present moment. It is a system based on the wisdom of Zen, which helps us examine outer events in order to gain greater clarity on what is happening inside of us. Its vibrant images help you tune into your sensitivity, intuition, compassion, creativity, receptivity, and individuality. The 79-card deck includes a Master card, which symbolizes the ultimate transcendence of the separate, individual ego in enlightenment. The set includes an illustrated 176-page guidebook. For each card Osho provides a commentary on the imagery as well as insight into its meaning. The book also offers several card spreads and a Glossary of Symbols.
Osho’s teachings cover everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. Osho is also know for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life. His books are not written but are transcribed from his worldwide presentations.
