My name is Attila Kárpáthy, and I’m a tarotolog, mystic, occultist and mixed esoteric artist, writer, poet, painter, photographer, musician and cook from Transylvania. Transylvania with a “T” and not Pennsylvania with a “P” – as often people misunderstood. Still, I do not have werewolf cousins nor vampire aunts, I do not sleep in a casket, and Read more Esoteric Tarot – The Fool (book)

Esoteric Tarot a series of 29 books

Esoteric Tarot Vol 1 and 2

I have this insanely ambitious project to write and publish a series of 29 books about the Esoteric Tarot.

The first volume is called “Initiatory Manual” and consist of theoretical and practical guidelines about the Tarot and its connection with Astrology, Numerology, Kabbalah, Alchemy, and the Fourth Way. It will be your Read more Esoteric Tarot a series of 29 books

The Karpathy system

The Complete Esoteric System

I was oscillating between the titles, the “Kárpáthy system” or the “revisited Kárpáthy system”. Eventually, I have decided to go with the simple “Kárpáthy system”. First of all, my previous method was called the “Unified Esoteric Tarot”, and secondly, I did not use the “Kárpáthy” name previously.

The extra mile

The Complete Esoteric System

The difference between the ordinary and extraordinary is going that legendary extra mile.
Going the extra mile means that one is willing to make a special effort to achieve something.
It also reveals the difference between what is considered “exoteric”, the mundane life of the material world, and what is vaguely called “esoteric” and signifies the intangible “spiritual” world. One can settle for the obvious and tangible or can go the extra mile to discover the hidden. This world, however, is inaccessible for most people.
It took me twenty-five years of research, study and practical experience to have the outlines of my own esoteric system. It was not my intention to create a new system, but I wanted to understand and rectify the existing one. It was a task of backwards-engineering and rediscovering a lost, forgotten and altered system. In that regard, it is not “my system” but the system as it was originally designed. My only merit is walking that extra mile. My instruments were questioning, verifying, comparing, and take nothing for granted. The idea that “everything we know is wrong” haunted me. I always felt that something was not right, but I could not put my finger exactly on what was that. (…)
My first significant breakthrough was discovering what somewhat ironically I called “the God’s formula,” and which is three by four makes twelve. Identifying what the threes are, respectively, the fours throughout all the branches of the esoteric sciences, became my primordial working method. (…)
I published the core of my findings along with my first Tarot deck, the Unified Esoteric Tarot, in 2018.
