Banyen's Description: 

The Osho Zen Tarot focuses on gaining an understanding of the here and now. It is a popular system based on the wisdom of Zen, a 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 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 (there are 79 colour cards as well) helps to interpret and understanding the images in the simple, straightforward and down to earth language of Zen.

 Colourful cards, depictions of psychological states, conundrums and ecstasies, everyday koans, and life situations . . . This set has become a word-of-mouth bestseller.
