Traditionally, tarot cards are used as a method of answering questions about life, a way to satisfy a longing to know about one's past and future. Osho Zen Tarot focuses on gaining an understanding of the here and now, through the ancient wisdom of Zen. It enables us to turn our attention from outside events to discover the clarity of understanding our innermost wishes.
When life seems to be full of doubt and uncertainty we tend to look for a source of inspiration: what will happen in the future? what about my health, the children? what will happen if I make this decision and not that one? This is how the traditional tarot is often used, to satisfy a longing to know about the past and future.
This Osho Zen Tarot focuses instead on gaining an understanding of the here and now. It is a system based on the wisdom that says events in the outer world simply reflect our own thoughts and feelings, even though we ourselves might be unclear about what those thoughts and feelings are. So it helps us to turn our attention away from outside events so we can find a new clarity of understanding about what is happening in our own innermost hearts. The conditions and states of mind portrayed by the contemporary images on the cards are all shown as being essentially transitional and transformative. The text in the accompanying book helps to interpret and understand the images in the simple, straightforward and down to earth language of Zen.
