About this title

Synopsis:

A tarot based on the mystical teachings of the Tantric tradition

· Contains 22 Major Arcana, 40 Minor Arcana representing the four elements, and three additional cards invoking Past, Present, and Future

· Cards are full-color collages by Penny Slinger

The Tantric Dakini Oracle is a system of divination based on the authors’ work in the Ranipur Jharial Temple of Orissa, India. The temple contains stone carvings of 64 Dakinis, ancient symbolic representations of the female principles of intuitive wisdom. The Dakinis are the guardians of the deeper mysteries of the self, and it is through them that the secrets of inner transformation are opened.

Nik Douglas, a scholar of both Sanskrit and Tibetan, has drawn upon his extensive knowledge of Tantric mystical teachings to create a modern synthesis of their system of divination. The 65 cards in the deck are a collage of surrealistic images representing symbols and archetypes that are designed to affect both conscious and subconscious levels of perception. Created by artist Penny Slinger, the cards are a mirroring device that evokes subtle memories, sentiments, desires, or fears. Mediation on the images of The Tantric Dakini Oracle puts the reader in contact with the energies of the Dakinis, opening a path to one’s inner world and enhancing the user’s faculties of clairvoyance and visualization.

The oracle also uses two layouts to release individual psychic power--the Tree of Life and The Great Universe Map. The Tree of Life depicts the chakra centers of the yoga body to engage the kundalini energies of the individual diviner. The Great Universe Map explores the astrological influences upon individuals and situations.

DIVINATION / TANTRA

The Tantric Dakini Oracle is a system of divination based on the authors’ work in the Ranipur Jharial Temple in Orissa, India. The temple contains stone carvings of sixty-four dakinis, ancient symbolic representations of the female principles of intuitive wisdom. The dakinis are the guardians of the deeper mysteries of the self, and it is through them that the secrets of inner transformation are opened.

Nik Douglas, a scholar of both Sanskrit and Tibetan, has drawn upon his extensive knowledge of tantric mystical teachings to create a modern synthesis of their system of divination. The sixty-five cards in the deck are a collage of surrealistic images representing symbols and archetypes that are designed to affect both conscious and subconscious levels of perception. Created by artist Penny Slinger, the cards evoke subtle memories, sentiments, desires, or fears. Meditation on the images of The Tantric Dakini Oracle puts the reader in contact with the energies of the dakinis, opening a path to the user’s inner world, enhancing visualization, and even leading to clairvoyance. Additional methods for consulting the oracle include the Tree of Life chart and Great Universe map, which link the cards to the yoga body, the chakras, kundalini energy, and astrological influences.

NIK DOUGLAS and PENNY SLINGER are also the authors of Sexual Secrets and The Erotic Sentiment in the Paintings of India and Nepal.
