The tarot is seen not just as a fascinating literary subject but also as a gallery of wisdom and power which can be described as the "algebra of occultism". For centuries, these cards have been regarded as a key to all the wisdom attainable to mankind. In this study, accessible to the layman and specialist, the tarot is taken beyond its popular divinatory function. New horizons of thought, activity and cosmology are preceived in the traditional hermetic form of philosophy and the emphasis is on using the book as a practical manual for the occult. Throughout, Mouni Sadhu regards the tarot as a guide to creative thinking and the development of concentrated, deliberate thought as well as an approach to the ultimate mystery of the Kabbalah-Tarot-Magic unity, the unknowable.
