The Eternity Game by Medhananda (also called: The Golden Ball Game) contains 64 cards and a booklet with guidance for the various play-possibilities and the detailed interpretations of each card and its four aspects. We ask a question - and by concentrating on our question choose a card (or several) - and get an answer.
The intention of the game is to make us more aware of our many soul forces - to help us to evoke or exercise, invoke or integrate them by growing more conscious, more transparent of ourselves and the reality around us - and to become master of our inner kingdom.

Medhananda about the Eternity Game:
"The Eternity Game is an ontological and cosmological, a mythological and psychological game in which the mysteries and archetypes, the powers and forces, the kingdoms and dominions, chakras and avatars, the thrones and meditations, the samadhis and the illuminations are all brought to us through their symbols, so that we may become acquainted with them, know them, play with them without disrespect, but also without superstitious misgivings. Slowly we are led to recognize them eventually as part of ourselves in that oneness of consciousness and life and bliss which we all are.

The Game invites us
: Come and play with the whole, the whole of the cosmos and of yourself. There is nothing in space or in the infinity of time whose play-companion you cannot become, and there is nothing within yourself which you need fear. This is the first of the space-age games which knows no rules but the truth, no limits but the infinite, and no walls but those which we have built around ourselves. In this game all the things we have separated - like knowledge and love, being and be-coming, God and man - are whole again and one, and therefore you will find no negative cards, nothing to be afraid of, because in eternity even that which seems for a moment negative can be recognized as positive." Medhananda 1973

With a profound sense of obligation and reverence the author dedicates this game to his teachers Sri Aurobindo and The Mother….the philosophy and psychology of the game are inspired by their luminous teachings.
