The Sacred Indian Tarot

Vidhushak/Fool is an interesting archetype that marks the beginning of the life journey culminating in the World card. The Fool is a spirit in search of an experience. Its journey stands for new beginnings, spontaneity, optimism, purity of purpose, and an unconventional thought process. The Fool symbolizes a journey into the self, represented by the 21 additional cards of the Major Arcana, the so-called triumphs (i.e., ‘Trumps’) of the journey.
