Osho Zen Tarot

[Existence] [Success] The Osho Zen Tarot is inspired by the work of Osho, a teacher from India (1931-1990). The artist Ma Deva Padma is a meditative artist and disciple of Osho. The goal of this deck is awareness. It is presented as "a transcendental game of Zen ... a wake-up call to tune in to sensitivity, intuition, compassion, receptivity, courage and individuality." The Osho Zen Tarot is divided into the standard major and minor arcanas, but the usual identifiers on each card are absent. The cards are distinguished through the color and numbering/symbol in a small diamond at the bottom of each card. There is also a keyword meaning associated with each card. The court cards are not always pictured as people. They are identified by a direction arrow in the diamond. This deck comes as a boxed set with The Osho-Zen Tarot (176 pages). Ma Deva Padme is also the artist for the Tao Oracle based on the I Ching. There is also an Osho Transformation Tarot.
