Q) Is the Bhagavad Gita Deck different to a tarot deck?
The words in the Bhagavad Gita are spoken directly by the Lord. They are uttered by none other than the Supreme Soul. Such words are not a product of the conscious mind. The BG deck has verses directly from the Bhagavad Gita. Unlike other tarot decks, the BG deck raises every question and answers to such questions right from the Original Source. Tarot cards are designed to look at the symptoms i.e. what to do regarding certain problems or what is coming your way etc; the BG cards on the other hand, go right to the root cause showing you the path of truth with amazing clarity. Think of a person suffering from cancer and as a result he/she has a severe headache. The patient or the doctor do not know that the root cause is cancer. They keep giving him/her medicine for headache. But headache is merely the symptom. Similarly, all problems in our lives are not the causes themselves but merely symptoms of a core problem. The BG deck hits right at this point by highlighting the root cause.
Q) How is this reading different than any other Tarot reading?
Tarot is now the most popular form of divination in the western world but the ancient system of wisdom can enhance both your daily life and your spiritual development. People have used the Tarot for centuries as a tool for divination and contemplation. Yet, as the human race became more complex, there was a need for an equally evolved guidance tool. The Tarot is a divination system that uses a set of cards to gain insight and achieve greater control over personal issues involving relationships, opportunities, and life changes. However, the purpose of the BG deck is to stimulate divine intuition and evoke new insights. It can be thought of as a two-way form of prayer where Divine intelligence answers you with symbols.
Q) How can this BG deck help me?
The BG deck can help you identify the root cause of all your problems, phobias, worries, anxieties and obstacles. While the cards can accurately pin point your past, present and future, they are best used to get broader guidance. They can shed light on the path you should be taking and can help you make the right decisions at the right time. Finding the right answers is entirely dependent on asking the right questions. Wrong questions will lead to wrong answers, however right they may be. Tarot cards simply answer questions raised by you; the BG deck helps you ask the right questions at the first place. The questions as well as the answers are not coming from me; I am merely the medium. They are coming directly from the Divine. The verses or the words on the cards are not mine and nor are the interpretations thereof. I am simply, as the flag bearer, continuing an ancient system I have been initiated into.
Whether you should be continuing your present job or looking for a new one? Should you be marrying the person you want to? Is this the life partner for you? What is in the store for you when it comes to your financial future? Should you be making a certain investment? Is it right to enter into a partnership with a certain person? Do you need to worry about your health? Questions like these and many more can be addressed by the BG deck. Like I said earlier, all questions that can come to your mind and all possible answers can be found in the BG deck. The proof is in the pudding; come and experience it for yourself.
Q) If everything is pre-decided (destined), what control do I then have on my karma and the BG readings affect my future karma?
We cannot stop the rain but we can surely carry an umbrella saving us from getting wet. Vedic scriptures state that we are like actors on a stage with preset roles and acts. However, they also state that the Divine grace can make a lot of difference to how we lead our lives. Imagine someone having to go through a medical procedure without anesthesia. The procedure will be much more painful. The same procedure when undertaken under anesthesia becomes completely painless. The BG deck can show you the path so you can make the right decisions and protect yourself from everything undesirable.
The quality of our existence is a function of the quality of our consciousness. The good news is that each one of us has complete control over the quality of our consciousness. The BG deck can guide you in what you need to do to gain that control and retain it.
Q) Why do we find it difficult to make decisions?
Often we find it difficult to make the decisions because we want to eat the cake and have it to. Our conscious mind that has evolved over millions of years has become a little too calculative. It does not want to listen to the intuition or the gut instinct. It simply wants to calculate all the possible permutations and combinations arising out of our decision. It does not want to surrender to the Divine. There is amazing simplicity in Divine’s creation. It all works with amazing precision. But the conscious mind wants an explanation for everything. Things that it cannot fathom, it simply rejects them as myth or fiction. A gifted psychic can provide divine wisdom, to improve your life by making the right plans and decisions at the right time. Each card is symbolic of an energy or spiritual truth; you just have to start with implicit trust in the cards & your reader.
Q) There are so many methods; why should I choose the Bhagavad Gita readings?
There can be more than one true answer to the same question. Other methods may be just as good. The difference is that a BG reading is not a commercial enterprise. It is not a method. It has been passed on using oral tradition only over several centuries. The BG deck can tell you where your life is heading and what results your actions will reap. It can also tell you if you're in the wrong job, partnership, marriage, relationship or making the wrong decisions. It can guide you regarding your future and how to change it for the better. Live a life of abundance and fulfillment. The creation of the Divine is infinite and unlimited. Tap into this pool. Plug into the Supreme Consciousness. And watch miracles unfold in front of your very eyes.
