Tarot of Swami J

A few years ago a well trained and experienced Tarot practitioner asked if she could do a reading on me (first and only time I've had a complete reading). Here are three cards I pulled which stood out. It's most intriguing which cards came up for these three major questions. I'm just sharing this here for the fun of it.

Where have
you come from?
Where are
you going?
How will
you get there?

It sounds a bit like the Moon being the reflection of pure light, with those reflections being the false identities. The Sun is like the pure consciousness (atman, brahman, purusha, shakti, shiva) to which we awaken as being our true nature. Death is like the passing away of all the attractions, aversions, and fears that falsely define who we think we are.

It is like the Yoga Sutras (1.2-1.3), which defines Yoga: "Yoga is the control (nirodhah, regulation, channeling, mastery, integration, coordination, stilling, quieting, setting aside) of the modifications (gross and subtle thought patterns) of the mind field. Then the Seer abides in Itself, resting in its own True Nature, which is called Self-realization."






This site is devoted to presenting the ancient Self-Realization path of the Tradition of the Himalayan masters in simple, understandable and beneficial ways, while not compromising quality or depth. The goal of our sadhana or practices is the highest Joy that comes from the Realization in direct experience of the center of consciousness, the Self, the Atman or Purusha, which is one and the same with the Absolute Reality. This Self-Realization comes through Yoga meditation of the Yoga Sutras, the contemplative insight of Advaita Vedanta, and the intense devotion of Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra, the three of which complement one another like fingers on a hand. We employ the classical approaches of Raja, Jnana, Karma, and Bhakti Yoga, as well as Hatha, Kriya, Kundalini, Laya, Mantra, Nada, Siddha, and Tantra Yoga. Meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer finally converge into a unified force directed towards the final stage, piercing the pearl of wisdom called bindu, leading to the Absolute.
