James Naismith: The Founder of Basketball
Naismith was a trainer in 1890 in Springfield, YMCA International Training College. During this time he was given the task of preparing an indoor game. After this Naismith started playing basketball with a football and with some rules.
James Naismith was a popular coach, professor and a doctor by profession. In 1891, January, he invented the basketball.

Humans Are Actually the Puppets in the Hands of Kaal Brahm
The entire world is just like a stage where everyone is given a role to play according to his previous Karmas. This is just a trap made by Kaal for us where the surroundings are made beautiful along with the amenities to lure us towards these worldly possessions. The only way to save ourselves from this trap is attaining true devotion.
Real Game of Life
Although, we are born with distinct traits, different personalities and in different regions but the main aim of human life is to attain Salvation (Moksha). For this, True Bhakti is required. But people rarely know about this or we can say they don’t want to know as they are so involved in their so-called traditional beliefs that it is nearly impossible for them to believe that there is only one God, The Supreme Power who is above all the Deities. It is even mentioned in Gita ji that who does the fake practices which are not mentioned in our scriptures can never be happy.
Gita Adhyay no. 16 Shlok no. 23
YaH, shastrvidhim’, utsrjya, vartte, kamkaratH, na, saH, Siddhim’, avapnoti, na, sukham’, na, paraam’, gatim’ ||23||
This means that who, abandons the injunctions of the scriptures, acts according to his whimsical desires, neither attains siddhi, nor supreme state, nor happiness.
Who Is the Supreme God?
That Omnipotent Supreme Power is Kabir Sahib Ji not the Deities. Bandichhor Garibdas Ji and Kabir Sahib Ji mentioned about the false practices in His verses that by doing these one cannot attain salvation.
Garib, Bhoot ramae so bhoot hai, Dev ramae so dev |
Ram ramae so Ram Ahi, Suno sakal sur bhev ||
Therefore, one should do the worship of that Supreme God, from whom you will attain complete salvation. That God is Purna Brahm / SatPurush Sat Kabir (Eternal Kabir). Its evidence is also in Gita Ji Adhyay no 18 Shlok no. 46.
Gita Adhyay 18 Shlok 46
YatH, prvrttibhootanaM yen sarvmidM tatam’ | Swakarmna tambhyachrya siddhiM vindati manavH ||46||
This means that the God from whom all the living beings have originated and from whom this whole world has pervaded, by worshipping that God through the performance of one’s natural activities, a man attains supreme spiritual success.
Thus, one should leave the false beliefs and follow the right path by taking Naam Diksha (Initiation) from a True Saint. And, He is none other than Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj at present. He imparts the Absolute devotional path that is mentioned in our Scriptures. This path only will lead to Salvation and is the actual game that we are born for to win.
