Thousands of years ago, the angel Metatron gave to humanity the Tarot and the Hebrew letters, a precious set of knowledge containing the keys to liberation from suffering. Unfortunately, some cunning people stole and modified a portion of the protected teachings, and over the centuries that stolen knowledge passed through Egypt, Arabia, and finally into Europe, eventually becoming what we popularly refer to as the Tarot. Over the centuries, it degenerated. It was re-arranged, misinterpreted, misused... Being so far removed from their source, very few contemporary Tarot decks accurately reflect the teachings of Metatron. During the twentieth century, Samael Aun Weor wrote volumes of books correcting the Tarot and showing how it is a form of Kabbalah. For decades, millions of readers have awaited an authoritative Tarot deck based Kabbalah, Hebrew, and the knowledge Samael Aun Weor provided. “The Eternal Tarot” is a 78 card Tarot deck and book set that restores the Tarot to its original structure and importance as an integral part of meditation and Kabbalah.
"An imprisoned person with no other book than the Tarot, if he knew how to use it, could in a few years acquire universal knowledge, and would be able to speak on all subjects with unequaled learning and inexhaustible eloquence." – Eliphas Levi
The Tarot represents the fundamental laws of nature, thus the Tarot can be used to understand anything: science, religion, nature... but the most important use is to understand ourselves.
Anyone can use the Tarot to understand the forces at work in their lives, and get guidance regarding what they must do.
"...every erudite occultist, all esotericists, must always call on the “standard of measures,” the Tarot, if they do not want to fall into the absurd." - Samael Aun Weor, The Mystery of the Golden Flower
The included book gives a short overview of the Tarot and how to use it, followed by brief explanations of all 78 Tarot cards. A full, detailed explanation of the Tarot is found in the comprehensive book Tarot and Kabbalah by Samael Aun Weor.
I cannot escape the feeling that this "book of cards" is only partially described in a sketched manner through the book "Tarot and Kaballah" by the venerable Samael Aun Weor and the work of the anonymous people who brought it to light. He is definitely not one to cater to the intellect but rather the person of action who comprehends and understands Truth by engaging with life and not the person who thinks too much.
For the full reveal, learning the major meaning of a card as it pertains to you via contemplation of the symbols through deep meditation and inquiring on them via dreams can dramatically yield precious food and guidance for the devout and dedicated soul from their seemingly impenetrable imagery.
Not a "Tarot" deck that might be used for divination in a popular, sham sort of way.
I’m haven’t had a lot of time to get into everything I’vee ordered but thus far everything has really soothed the soul and my spirit has guidance now into the esoteric aspects of divinity. The Shukpa incense was very powerful for this time of year and influence of the kidneys. Ive come to understand a lot but still know very little. Non the less I am very grateful for you guys and all you’ve done for me and my life both physically and spiritually! Thank you very much!
Really enjoyed the purifying smell of the air in my home when I lit the incense acquires from the Gnostic store.
This deck continues to reveal itself intuitively and conceptually with the informative booklet that comes with it. The design is beautifully succinct, and the price is right. I recommend purchasing the book TAROT and KABBALAH by for an even more immersive experience.
