The Sacred Indian Tarot





Kiren Rai


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 unique hand painted cards with images taken from the rich pantheon of Indian mythology. The structure of the major arcanas and the suit cards remains the same , however the images used to represent them are taken from Indian icons, symbols and rituals. Each card in the Indian deck corresponds to its Nordic equivalent retaining its form and structure.

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
