Format: Hardcover
Dr Paul Foster Case needs little introduction to those whose time with the Tarot has taken them past the introductory texts. Also for those curious to learn more of the Western Mystical, or Magical, tradition, his works are an unparalleled source of knowledge, wisdom and revelation.
Former head of the US Order of the Golden Dawn, and founder of the B.O.T.A, Case was a master both of communicating complex ideas to the uninitiated, and of his various subjects of interest.
What then of this book? It promises that within its covers lie the means to attain 'enlightenment'. (I place speech marls here to communicate a universally comprehensible term) Twenty-Two meditations, each with a brief commentary, are applied to the cards of the Major Arcana. The meditations are in verse and follow a full page depiction of the card being treated thus. It is noteworthy that Case has attributed the Hebrew Letters differently than others, to the cards - Aleph to the Fool, where others use this letter for the Magician/Bateleur. I have read extensively on this, and other related subjects, and arrived at the conclusion that Paul Foster Case makes the clearest, and most accurate argument.
I have studied Hebrew, am aware of the numerical attributes of the letters of the Aleph-Bet, and Dr Case makes one absolutely compelling argument which, for me, swings the matter in his favour. The numerical attribution beyond 'Yod' (Ten) means that the eleventh letter (Caph) has not the value 'eleven' rather it is numbered 'twenty'.

A compendium of reflections on the nature of reality 7 Nov. 2006
By Kato - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Unknown Binding
I found this book truly magnificent in it's depth of understanding and it's ability to convey that to the reader. In my opinion, this is a work of genius not always apparent upon the first casual flick through it's pages.

It's all in the reading really...you don't just read this book as you would a normal book. It's written in the third person, as a series of reflections on God, by God. That may sound strange but that's exactly what it is - God contemplating his own nature and the universe that he has created. And if you read each chapter AS a meditation and take in every word - THINK about every word you read as you read it - it will plant amazing seeds in your mind that will provide food for thought for many years to come.

A masterpiece of metaphysical philosophy.
