Review by: V.H. Frater P.D.R.
This is an absolute must-read for anyone who sincerely desires to have more than a surface knowledge of the sacred mysteries.
Don't let the title of this book fool you. This anonymous author uses the sacred major arcana of the tarot to express a corpus of teachings, traditions and mysteries that begin in the higher spiritual states of mind and eventually become reality. The Afterwards was written by Cardinal Hans Urns Von Balthasar, one of the most respected Christian theologians in the last century.
This book, which was out of print for some time, is over 600 pages. The author, whom some claim was Valentine Tromberg (the
head of the Martinist Order during the 40's and 50's), takes the reader deep into Qabalah, Hermeticism and Christian mysticism.
This book is selected as strongly recommended study for Second Order Brethren of the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn ®. Expect a lifetime of use and spiritual value from this book. Buy it. Read it.
