Although the lack of text means you do need the companion material, or to find another source for the Lojong slogans, the images are also very expressive. In that way, you can use them to reflect on nature and life, even if you don't incorporate the slogan meanings. For example, the images evoke ideas about the cycles of life, about beauty, impermanence, nourishment of body and spirit, and of growth and change.
If you are also interested in Buddhist thought, Beverly gives wonderful, brief explanations of the slogans, bringing them into a simple, modern context. This is a great way to explore these ideas from a non-dogmatic source. I've had some negative experiences with 'fundamentalist' Buddhist thinkers, rigid or male-centric. However, the messages here are accessible, down-to-earth and heart-filled.

All the cards have a beautiful simplicity to them. The colours are sometimes dull, sometimes bright, but always natural. And that, I think, is one of their greatest charms: the zen-like way they connect us to the natural world, the cycles of life, and the beauty of existence.
