Hindu Snakes and Ladders Game is a Hit

One of the many discoveries about India that we included in our book the History of Hindu India, was that the original snakes and ladders game was made in India. This is a newly done painting of an original version hundreds of years old. Positive and negative character traits take you "up" and "down".

Padmaja Patel sends these photos from Texas where she says the kids are having fun with the game and learning about character at the same time.

    A very big thanks to the great sadhus of Himalayan Academy. I had no idea at all of the Hindu/Indian connection of this game. I studied the all the steps on this carefully and find it phenomenal as it reflects a sadhaka’s pursuit of enlightenment. I greatly admire the great originator who was the designer of this game long long ago and the clear & pure thought he/she put into it.
    Dhayawad!! Om shri Uma Maheshvarah Namo Namah.
