The forerunner of our present game of chess, considered by Professor Székely to be something much more serious than just a simple "game", was of course, always called by him "the Art of Asha", the ART of Asha. The Art of Asha finds its origin way back in time, and was also used by Zarathustra for his teaching; as proof of this, millennia-old legends have come down to us, such as the Legend of Firdausi. All the forces that are at work in Nature and Cosmos, are depicted by theirb own, special symbol  (see the illustration of the chessboard above), the very same symbolism as also used by the Essenes for their "Angels" or forces (the Aramese word for this, "Malak", had those two meanings) for all of which their Tree of Life was the symbol. The Art of Asha is described in "The Essene Book of Asha", obtainable from I.B.S. in English. To get some idea, parts of "The Essene Book of Asha" are shown below:
