- What is the Game of Life?
Life is an interplay of complex
matrix of several components. There are some
goals to achieve, some aspirations for the sublime,
some emotions in the play, some sentiments and
relationships at work and the components can
be many. Several of these things are at play.
There is joy and happiness where there is synergy
of these but nay there is also disappointment
and frustration when there is non unison in
these components. It is a game being played
by all either unknowingly or consciously. Play
you have to, then why shirk away from it.
- Is it a Game among Humans?
evolutionists dote on the emergence of present
human existence from a unicellular being. How
true it is when we find in ourselves the memories
of our past existences. The tail of the monkey
is a vestige but the mind plays monkeyish several
times. The slothful snake which is always loyal
to Newton's First law now finds it safe abode
in us for we alone were determined to eliminate
them from their homes. Be happy to find that
we were wise enough to retain the eye of the
fish and so its slipperiness too. The jackals
are now few in jungles and many amongst us.
So it is not exactly a game confined to human
life alone but it tries to stretch itself to
all forms of existence.
- So What is the Game upto?
This is a game where we go
through various states during meditation in
particular and life in general. We have been
behaving like cats and dogs, snakes and foxes,
lions and jackals, eagles and sparrows at various
points of time. The game aims at evaluating
ourselves as to what is the true self of man
and what is the true goal. The Divine in its
infinite wisdom has given various forms of expression
to itself, all interaction are between expressions
of the Divine, some have affection, some have
love, some have enmity, some have Jealousy and
some have Sharing. In all forms of life these
things are expressed. The game here gives an
interesting transaction with so many forms that
we thought could be useful in evaluating ourselves
and for this the game has to be played again
- Somebody calls us a Jackal? Is it offending
There is a Divine potential
in us and also the Divinity that has expressed
in lower forms in us. The attempt of any serious
person is to see that the Divine resource is
improved and the Human and Animal resource is
put down. The aim is for spiritual development.
It is meant for people who are serious about
life however those who are not serious may also
play to develop such seriousness. If somebody
calls us a jackal we may feel offended but if
we know that and confront it then we can overcome
that and grow into next level of being. It is
a challenge to know yourself. Various symbols
have been used to express various characteristics
that we have got. It is not that all the characters
will come out to your knowledge at the first
go, the game has to be played again and again
to know more about ourselves so that we come
out of it.
- Do you know that Jackals and Dogs coexist
As you play the game you will
understand that while very many good traits
have developed simultaneously we come across
several negative factors of our life which are
all that not very much perceivable or explicit
in the beginning. The fall is something that
may happen at any time to lower plane but with
the help of some master you will be able to
move to higher plane or maintain stability.
- If positive and negative coexist, how do
we move on in the game of life?
The spiritual path is chalked
out in such a way as to be progressively evolving
to higher planes of consciousness starting with
the Earthly consciousness in which majority
of the human beings live and we go through various
stages and reach the super conscious state of
feeling of Oneness with all.
- Game of life is all about snakes and Ladders.
The concept of snakes and ladders
is an age old one. Snakes have been considered
as a creature which is venomous and makes us
fall unconscious, symbolically in life we have
got various occasions where we are bitten by
snake of Lust, snake of Greed, Snake of Jealousy,
snake of Ambition, snake of Covetousness and
so on. The ladders have always been considered
as aids for moving on to higher plane. You do
get assistance from a Friend, from a Neighbor,
Some unforeseen opportunity and help from various
other sources. We find that we lift ourselves
up and develop certain traits and characters
or behavior which get certain social recognition.
The game naturally involves some snakes and
some ladders. The game has been designed in
such a way that we get enough ladders and enough
snakes as we move on. Remove the ladder life
is a misery and remove the snake life is no
challenge. The game is made very interesting
and lively by the Divine by providing us ladders
and snakes. Very interestingly we find that
when we have fallen a prey to a snake there
is ladder by its side as Guru to help us or
a friend to save us. Miseries never come together
nor does Happiness whenever we lose something
we gain something and when we gain something
we lose some thing. The life is like that, Play
- Spiritually, aspiration is a ladder while
attachment make us slip.
Aspiration on the spiritual
path, which is symbolically represented by fire,
makes us move on the path by burning down the
weeds and bushes on the path. Various positive
traits acquired during the journey act as ladders
to reach higher states. For example , in the
initial stages, through service we get to develop
faith and at later stages through constant remembrance
we becomes a prapanna. Where as the Gurukrpa
which comes to us through Pranahuti, kindles
the aspiration in us, thereby becoming a ladder
for us. Our attachments to various things, which
usually result in developing an attitude of
possessing, make us slip down the path from
a higher stage to a lower stage. Water usually
- The Game of Life is also a game of Dice?
The game of dice is an age
old one. In the game of dice one fails to forget
the great emperor Nala and the famous King Dharmaraja
of the Mahabharata. Both of them have played
the game of dice and lost kingdoms, fortunes,
near and dear ones but by playing their game
well in life by developing proper virtuous conduct
never swerving away from righteous path were
able to win their game of life.
- What does a pair of dice signify?
The game of life is played
with a pair of dice one is our Effort and the
other is the Divine support to our effort. Our
effort can be positive or may be negative for
a particular cause and many times not relevant
so much so that many of our actions in life
bordering on stupidity doesn't help anybody
least of all to the person concerned. The dice
has been designed in such a way as to reflect
our attitudes in life as positive, negative
or indifferent. It is wisdom to accept whatever
comes. As far as the Divine is concerned it either
chooses to support or waits for the opportune
time, but it is never negative.
- What is the logic of the DICE?
discussed earlier, this game is played with
dice is our effort and the other dice is
the Divine Support to our effort.
effort is either -1, 0, 1 or 2 and the Divine
support is 0, 1 or 2
effort gives us either a negative result
(-1) or a Positive result (1,2) or many
times it is no result (0) in spite of the
Support is either affirmative (1, 2) or
there is no response (0) but there is never
a negative support to the humanity. The
definition of the Divine by principle can
never be negative towards Humanity or to
the creation in general. At best there is
no response from it to our efforts and the
reasons for it are inexplicable to our reason.
you to enter into the game you should be
0 and the Divine should be 1. But considering
patience required to get such a result,
the game is designed in such a way that
you are allowed entry into the game after
5 trials by seeking Divine intervention
at the entry stage itself. This is to be
understood as the Divine is ever willing
and ever Kind to give us an opportunity
of life itself, should we seek for a one
to evolve. The first lesson that is learnt
is, Our life in this form is a Divine blessing.
we move on the path, we find several ladders
and also several snakes which give us a
either a jump or a fall correspondingly.
completing the journey in the first 88 cells,
we will encounter negative results on our
dice because the negative traits had by
the traveler or a sadhaka after this stage
are detrimental to his progress, in fact
they make him slide back on the path. Any
slide on the path should be viewed seriously
by the traveler by reviewing all the negative
states he had.
some places, the player has to get 1 compulsory
to get further movement on the path. It
is advisable for the seeker to take note
of that cell in Real life. Can you identify
are two to three big snakes in the last
stages of the game. The fall from these
stages is too steep. If one perseveres with
the game even if one has fallen from these
stages for twice, then the Divine intervention
is available to be sought for one to get
transported across these dangerous snakes.
game has to be played many times by all,
right from childhood so that one is aware
oneself, for not only improving his self
but more importantly to become capable of
helping others on the path.
