Unbelievable!!! 👆
The 13th century poet saint Gyandev created a children's game called Moksha Patam. The British later named it Snakes and Ladders & diluted the entire knowledge - instead of the original "Moksha Patam." 👇1
In d original 100 square game board d 12th square was faith, d 51st square was reliability, d 57th square was generosity, d 76th square was knowledge & d 78th square was asceticism.These were d squares where d ladders were found & one could move ahead faster. 👇2
The 41st square was for disobedience d 44th square for arrogance, d 49th square for vulgarity, d 52nd square for theft, d 58th square for lying, d 62nd square for drunkenness, d 69th square for debt, d 84th square for anger, d 92nd square for greed, d 95th square for pride,👇3
the 73rd square for murder & d 99th square for lust. These were d squares where the snake waited with its mouth open. The 100th square represented Nirvana or Moksha.The tops of each ladder depict a God, or one of d various heavens (kailasa, vaikuntha, brahmaloka) and so on.👇4
As the game progressed various actions were supposed to take you up and down the board as in life...
Amazing, isn't it?? Proud of Sanatana .
