For example. One of my favorite mantras to recite is that of Saraswati - "Om Aim Saraswatyai Namaha" (Aim is the bija sound) Anyone, even a beginner can recite that basic 4 word mantra 108 times for their meditation practice. But the one they've chosen to put in the back of the card instead is this one
"ya kundendu-tusara hara-dhavala ya subhra-vastravrta ya vina-vara danda mandita kara/ ya sveta-padmasana ya brahmacyuta-sankara-prabhrtibhir/ devaih sada vandita sa mam patu sarasvati bhagavati nihses jadyapaha."
um...Why? A mantra like this is one I would expect to find in a book about mantras, not in the back of a card. Maybe some people will memorize and chant this 108 times, but they are not likely to be in the audience of those who purchase a reference deck.
Ganesha's basic mantra "Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha" (Gum is the bija sound) But the mantra they chose to put down for Ganesha's card is so much longer and more complex.
The artwork is beautiful and the cards feel good quality, but I think they would've been more useful if less space was taken up for these long mantras that few people will recite and more space used describing the attributes and story of the deity- which I think are lacking by comparison.
Not, necessarily an oracle deck, but a great deck to choose a 'theme' from, one that casts a light over an entire reading session.
