Buddha Tarot

Overview

"This deck is not just about Buddha. It is about us and about things in our culture that we may have forgotten. It is about how much our mystical heritage is like Buddhism. It is about why we can find Buddha in the Tarot, and a demonstration that the Tarot is a sacred tool, a mandala."
-Robert M. Place, creator of The Buddha Tarot


The combination of Buddhism and Tarot might seem strange at first, but the underlying archetypal pattern reveals stunning similarities. The story in the Tarot's major arcana ...

Overview

"This deck is not just about Buddha. It is about us and about things in our culture that we may have forgotten. It is about how much our mystical heritage is like Buddhism. It is about why we can find Buddha in the Tarot, and a demonstration that the Tarot is a sacred tool, a mandala."
-Robert M. Place, creator of The Buddha Tarot


The combination of Buddhism and Tarot might seem strange at first, but the underlying archetypal pattern reveals stunning similarities. The story in the Tarot's major arcana parallels the story of Siddhartha's journey to enlightenment. This sequence of twenty-two cards has been interpreted by many as an allegorical description of the soul's journey to enlightenment, beginning with the naive Fool and culminating in the universal consciousness represented by the World card.

The Buddha Tarot includes a 79-card Tarot deck designed and created by artist Robert M. Place, acclaimed for his distinctive style and artwork with religious and sacred themes. Also included is a booklet exploring the parallels between the Tarot and Buddhism, the life of Buddha, and interpretations for each card.

Perfect for divination, meditation, and unlocking one's inner wisdom, The Buddha Tarot awaits you as a gentle guide on your journey toward enlightenment.

    Masterpiece

    Renowned artist and tarot scholar/writer Robert M. Place has produced a masterpiece in his new tarot deck, the Buddha Tarot. His 384 page companion book, The Buddha Tarot Companion: A Mandala of Cards is truly that - the perfect companion for this deck. Both afford a rich unique perspective of the Tarot through the lens of the Buddhist paradigm. The deck comes in a beautifully illustrated box containing exquisitely designed cards that fit perfectly in my hand, a tiny black gossamer bag plus a bordered little white box with the instructions, 'Embellish this box with protective and/or empowering symbols.' Other suggestions that greet you as you begin your journey with the Buddha cards include: 'Smudge with sage to cleanse and re-energize the cards after a reading.' and 'Store your deck with stones or crystals that absorb negative energy, promote healing, or provide protective energy.' Also included in the box is a mini-book with guidelines on reading these particular cards. Both items are published by Llewellyn, who as always, have taken great care to ensure quality and aesthetics in the way the cards are packaged and presented. Robert has done an amazing job in correlating the life of the Buddha with the Tarot journey through the cards. He describes how the Major Arcana fits perfectly with the life of Siddhartha and his journey of enlightenment. Each of the tarot trumps is a stage on the mystic's journey to enlightenment. In fact, it is Mr. Place's belief that the creators of the Tarot were directly influenced by the life of the Buddha, and incorporated archetypes into the Major Arcana based on his journey. He teaches that the ancient wisdoms were not isolated from one another. Instead, 'the classical world maintained communications with India and the ancient Western philosophers were familar with Indian philosophies.' As well, the Islamic world introduced the Christians to the life of the Buddha during the Middle Ages. 'The European Christians were enamored with the story, and they transformed him into a Christian saint - St. Josaphat.' June Kaminski, BellaOnline¿s Tarot Editor
