Cards Review : The Sacred Indian Tarot
About a month back (Dec 2013) I found “The Sacred Indian Tarot” authored by “Kiran Rai” in Landmark Book Store and I knew I had to buy it immediately. I have always wanted to create an Indian version of Tarot Cards depicting Indian God and Goddesses and Vedic mantra’s for some time now. I know what I want to have for each Major Arcana card but have not found a painter to paint them for me yet.
All the cards have 4 “Tree of Life ” pictures as background. This “Tree of Life” is none other than Banyan Tree or Peepal Tree. The Buddha got his illumination meditating under Bodhi Tree. The tree is visually a diagram of ten interconnected spheres, connected by 22 lines which represents the 22 levels of Human Soul’s Evolution. These tree are commonly found in every temple in India and considered sacred.
It has 22 Major Arcana Cards only and for each card it has an Indian Name , the Indian symbolic image , meaning and significance of the symbols in India traditions.
One of my favourite card is ” Lovers ” card, It depicts “Radha and Krishna” who are symbols of eternal love in Hindu Mythology. I am sure every young love bird in India has prayed Lord Krishna for meeting their beloved soul.
Another favourite of mine is “Strength” usually depicted in “Rider Waite” cards as taming loin but in India I guess we relate to “Elephant” for pure strength. Strength which protects yourself and your family against harm , not revengeful at all.
Also it has stories from famous Hindu mythology like “Mahabharata” and “Ramayana.”
I would have picked different symbols for some cards. Like for Magician I would have picked up “Maya” Judgement” I would have picked ” Shani” and so forth.
It’s a good deck for doing “Chakra Readings” . Author has introduced a new spread for “Karmic Reading”. I must thank Kiran for creating and sharing it with world. I could relate to these two spreads more after practising “Reiki Healing” and “Past Life Regression Therapy“ respectively.
I would be sharing about these two spreads and my interpretations of it in my next post . I used them recently for readings for one of my client and I could find her core issue very well.
