The Sacred Indian Tarot

A beautifully hand- drawn deck of Indian cards combining the traditional elements of the tarot with a rich tapestry of Indian images, traditions and symbols for the first time ever.

The Sacred Indian Tarot deck combines the classic symbolism of the Norse Tarot with the aesthetic richness of Indian mythology. The book contains twenty – two (major arcanas ) unique hand painted cards with images taken from the rich pantheon of Indian mythology. A full deck of Tarot consists of the 22 Major Arcana, or Trump cards, and 56 Minor Arcana divided into 4 suits, from which playing cards are derived The Major Arcana represents cosmic principals and its symbols serve as tools to help the viewer find self-knowledge and a connection with the Divine .

Easy to use , every card in this deck corresponds to its Nordic equivalent retaining its form and structure. However the images used to represent them  are  taken  from  Indian icons, symbols and rituals. .

The cards of the Nordic Tarot , consist of potent archetypes that are rooted in Medieval and Renaissance Europe. Archetypes are ancient, universal patterns of behaviour that are common to all cultures and people across the world. The symbols, forms and figures used in The Sacred Indian Tarot are rooted in the tenets of the Hindu belief system giving the tarots a unique Indian perspective.

The Sacred Indian Tarot deck is truly a collector’s item which can be used to gain a refreshing insight into love and relationships, finances, career planning and much. The book breaks new ground in Tarot divination making it a wonderful tool for self quest
