B.O.T.A. Washington, D.C. Qabalah & Tarot Meetup

  • Jan 13, 2013 · 1:30 PM
  • Birmingham Masonic Lodge

This month we will continue our discussion on Tarot Key 10, The Wheel of Fortune and the assigned pair of opposites "wealth and poverty". Our topic for January's meeting will be on the Hebrew word for "poverty" which is Oveni, spelled Ayin, Vav, Nun, Yod and the related Tarot Keys: Key 15, The Devil; Key 5, The Hierophant; Key 13, Death and Key 9, The Hermit.

We hope you will join us for this interesting discussion!

    One of the quotations discussed at the January meeting was the first beatitude, traditionally translated, "Blessed are the poor in spirit." This is a good example of a mistranslation, based upon Latin and Greek texts, rather than upon the Peshitta, the text in the original language of the New Testament, Aramaic. In Aramaic, there are five meanings for the word "spirit": Spirit, wind, temper, pride, and rheumatism. When I got home from the meetup, I checked the excellent Lamsa translation from the Aramaic, and it is "Blessed are the poor in pride," so those at the meeting who thought that the quote referred to humility were correct, according to Lamsa.
