Tibetan Buddhism is a harmonious blend of the rational and the mystical, incorporating a belief in natural forces as divine powers into the Buddhist emphasis on compassion. This beautifully designed deck of 52 meditation cards offers practical wisdom and inspiring guidance. Attractively illustrated with evocative Tibetan art, the cards are divided into four suits -- Ritual, Meditation, Tantra, and Compassionate Wisdom -- and feature visualizations, exercises, and inspiring quotations on one side and, on the other, magnificent images of Tibetan Buddhist deities. The box of the deck itself forms a folding easel, enabling you to focus fully on each one as you meditate!
