Leela is nothing less than the game of life, providing insight into our own consciousness and a key to divine knowledge. Four things are necessary for one or more to play: the book and game board, a die, and a significant object that belongs to the player, such as a ring, to serve as the player's symbol during the game. Each of the seventy-two squares on the board represents a virtue or vice, an aspect of consciousness or a plane of reality; the players' progress is dictated by the fall of a die corresponding to the forces of karma.
Designed by Hindu sages over two thousand years ago, this is the precursor to the popular game "chutes and ladders."
Simultaneously a game and a serious method of enlightenment, Leela parallels the spiritual journey toward liberation, advancing the player along that path by means of the self-exploration that the game demands.
Repeated playing of Leela will reveal past karmas, current concerns, and the cosmic patterns governing your life.

Tantric scholar, composer, and artist, Harish Johari (1934-1999) authored numerous books for Westerners on the spiritual practices of India, including Ayurvedic Massage, Tools for Tantra, Ayurvedic Healing Cuisine, Numerology, Numerologia, Chakras, The Healing Power of Gemstones, and Breath, Mind, and Consciousness. He has also produced several audiocassettes, including Sounds of the Chakras, Sounds of Tantra, Attunements for Day and Night, and Attunements for Dawn and Dusk.Review:
"Leela is both a boardgame and practice on the spiritual path. The game is an analog to the spiritual journey. Following the roll of the die (which represents karma), the player advances along the path toward liberation of the soul."
