Overview

A unique and valuable resource for all students and practitioners of the Tarot

Includes 22 major arcana pop-out cards from the Osho Zen Tarot

A must have for owners of the phenomenally popular Osho Zen Tarot, this in-depth study of the meanings of the cards in the Osho Zen Tarot deck will also appeal to those who use the Rider, Crowley, and other, more traditional cards. The "here and now" approach of Zen offers the insight that the future evolves out of present events, ideas, and attitudes. Playful and accessible even to the novice, this remarkable handbook includes a table of correspondences for the Rider-Waite and Crowley cards, and special sections on the meanings of the four major elements, or "suits" in the Tarot system.

Tarot in the Spirit of Zen introduces readers to a deeper understanding of the Zen approach to becoming aware of and responding to life's challenges. Just like the Osho Zen Tarot deck, with its fresh and contemporary approach, the contents of Tarot in the Spirit of Zen are of interest to anyone who is interested in self-exploration and personal transformation.

Tarot in the Spirit of Zen

THE MAJOR ARCANA

EPIGRAPH

Life is the game of games, the ultimate game. It has tremendous meaning if you take it as a game and you don't become serious about it. If you remain simple and innocent, the game is going to impart many things to you.

All these games are like classes at a university. You pass through each class; you learn something. Then you move into another class. So this game of life has to be played very skillfully. If you are not skillful, you will miss much that is valuable. To be skillful means to be aware. Bring more awareness into each act of your life, into each step of your being.

—Osho
