Jai Satchitanand Friends!
Do you have dreams? Do these dreams scare you or make you happy?
Why do we have dreams? What is the reason behind it? Let's unravel
all these queries.
The science of 'dreams' is deep and mysterious. Many scientists
have been conducting experiments to solve the mystery behind
dreams. However, it is not ascertained yet.
Let's understand what Pujya Dadashri has to say about the
science of dreams.
During dreams the mind, the intellect and the 'chit' are at
work. However, the ego is in a dormant state. If ego was allowed to
be active, the person would also become active. The person would
either get up from his place and start a quarrel with the other
person or just leave the place. Dadashri explains that if a pauper
dreams that he is made King, he experiences exhilaration and on the
other hand if a King dreams that he has turned a pauper, he would
be depressed. He may even start weeping while still dreaming and
maybe even after having woken up the effects may linger on in his
mind throughout the rest of the day.
It is seen that young children get startled and scared in their
dreams. These are called nightmares which have various bodily
effects. All these effects can be scientifically proven. If dreams
are so effective, how can they be considered unreal?

new event occurs in our life but actually it is result of past
lives. What is the cause behind it? Dadashri explains that the
happenings in our lives that we see with our open eyes are the
matured fruits (fully grown) of our past deeds. However, dreams are
the immature fruits (not fully grown) of our past merit and demerit
karmas and have a much lighter effect on us. Both are results
(effects of karmas) but because the ego is inactive, no new karmas
(new causes) are bound in dreams. Once we come out of the dream, we
need to understand that it was a dream and has passed away. But, if
we relate the dream to anyone with reactions, at that time we are
signing and setting the opinion that, "I had this dream and I did
Just handle it as a dream with no reactions then no karmas will
