This scholarly work creates a new epoch in traditional occult philosophy. It is the first contemporary encyclopedic exposition of the great Western Tradition since the basic books by Eliphas LÚvi and Papus, and it also has full practical utility. The Philosophical Tarot has always been recognized as a universal key to all wisdom attainable by human beings. This text will be of particular interest, because of its kindred approach, to the many readers of the extraordinary contemporary masterpiece Meditations on the Tarot, by an anonymous writer much valued in esoteric circles throughout the world. The present work is by no means just a theoretical treatise accessible only to specialists, for anyone can understand the initiatory concepts of Mouni Sadhu's Tarot, perceiving completely new horizons of thought, activity, psychology, cosmology, and practical esotericism. In this text a great number of questions which occur to the earnest seeker are answered in a new and fascinating way, and the solution of the philosophical equations arising from the Arcana opens new vistas in every field of life. The book is suitably subdivided into 100 separate lessons, allowing for systematic study.

Mouni Sadhu is the mystical name taken by Dymitr Sudoski, a noted Occultist and Mystic of the first half of the Twentieth Century. The word “mouni” means silent and “sadhu” refers to a wandering holy man. The author has tried many paths on the route to self-realization, and is uniquely qualified to relate the truths in this book. Steeped in the Hermetic schools which abounded at the turn of the 19th century, then embracing the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi and Vichara—yet never forgetting his Catholic faith—Mouni Sadhu successfully advances our mental synthesis and leads us to the door of True Self. Mouni’s writing was based not only on rigorous study of the texts of his day, but on personal experience and diligent practice.
