Winning the Game of Life – Jai maha Dev


Winning the Game of Life
This life is an even playing field. It is not ‘rigged’ and no one has an intrinsic advantage or handicap. The field of Prakriti (Nature) is intrinsically balanced. Appearances arise (temporary reality appears) when that balance is altered.

Though each of us is in Reality the all-knowing ATMAN (Soul), we have put on the covering of Ignorance by virtue of our own Yogic power in the form of Yog Maya. This spell of Ignorance is really an illusion; it is a proposition of superimposition that we have willingly accepted in order to play the Game.

The Supreme Self (ParamAtman, Supreme Soul, or Over-Soul) is the Referee, the Score-Keeper, the Time-Keeper, Maker of the Rules, and the Master of the Game (the Supreme Generator, Operator, and Destroyer–GOD–the Creator, Preserver, and Transformer). That Supreme Self is always with us at every step of the way. That Supreme Self is our Ultimate Friend and Eternal Companion, and the One we can always trust.

We are embodied in the human form, and cannot escape our own humanity. Each of us is intrinsically HUMAN, which means we are a ’study in contrasts.’ The dichotomy of good and evil, right and wrong, strong and weak, unselfish and selfish, and so on and so forth is built into our mind in the form of innumerable impressions from our innumerable lives in innumerable different circumstances.

We have lived in many different life forms, but the power of Life is One and indivisible. We have changed our mind many times, but the Mind is One and Universal, and appears individualized only due to the presence of ego and ignorance. Ego and Ignorance are created by the illusory power of the Self. There is no real reality to unreality; and there can be no separation of the Self from the Supreme Self. The Self is indivisible and immaculate. The dichotomy and delusion are self-induced as the introduction of this Drama or Game of Life.

In every game there is the element of Chance. The next moment in this Drama of Life is NOT predetermined; it is all a matter of our choice.

“We are the sum total of the choices we make.”

Dr. T. R. Khanna

As in every game, there are boundaries and limitations. In this game of Life we are equipped with free-will and beset with limited intelligence. This combination is bound to break boundaries from time to time, intentionally or unintentionally. But the rules of the Game will always apply. Nature is very unforgiving, even though the Supreme Being is all-merciful and full of compassion. If we break the rules or run afoul, we will have to pay the penalty.

The more skillful we become, the fewer mistakes we make. When we finally attain our Goal of Liberation (Moksha) it will NOT be by chance or good luck; it will be by virtue of our good practices. Our good practices will get the attention of our Divine Friend, the Supreme Self, and with His help and guidance we will become totally free of ego and ignorance and once again become established in our original State of Being.

    Ref : “Fountain of Inner Joy”

    We are presently offering for sale a wonderful book by Dr. T. R. Khanna. The author is a renowned Vedic scholar who is a living example of the principles and precepts of which he writes. In the Fountain of Inner Joy, Dr. Khanna explores the essence of true happiness, which he tells us can only be found through the practice of wisdom. Dr. Khanna shows us that wisdom is not just an esoteric subject about which one merely philosophizes, but rather a practical code that must be implemented through our living habits, character, and lifestyle. Through the various articles presented in this inspiring book, we are presented with a clear and unambiguous road map for reaching our true potential and discovering the Fountain of Inner Joy.

    Quotes from inside the Fountain of Inner Joy

    “Never be afraid to keep speaking the truth with love.”

    “True love is commitment, loyalty, and sincerity in the good or bad times.”

    “If we are always in a giving mode, we are content and happy. If we are always in an expecting mode, we are dissatisfied and unhappy.”

    “Don’t put limits on your positivity.”

    “It is useless to dwell on past mistakes or to live in wishful thinking about future change. We should become grateful for the goodness we already have, and actively seek ways to improve our lives in every aspect.”

    “When speaking the truth, we should never speak out of annoyance.”

    “Humility is very simple. It is not an act. It is a state of being that comes from the heart.”

    “We must take some time off for purification of our soul. Otherwise our whole life will go in counting our pains, worries and excuses.”

    “Become the fountain of joy and compassion, showering love, understanding, and care.”
