Dreams have always been the focus of curiosity, interest, and quest of the human
mind. These have led to varieties of false convictions and mystic notions on the one
hand, and have accelerated research in Psychology, Neurology and Parapsychology
on the other. The reality, origin, reflections and implications of dreams are discussed
in great detail in this book, which is compiled from the translation of the Chapters 4
and 5 of the volume 18 of “Pt. Shriram Sharma Acharya Vangmaya” series.

The multiple effects of subconscious instability, mental excitations, and emotional
complexities, together with the infinite domain of connectivity of the unconscious mind
make the Science of Dreams rather esoteric. Nevertheless, some dreams are so clear and
consistent in their ‘rhetoric depictions’ that the study of such dreams offers convincing
implications, interpretations, or logical inferences that can be verified.

As discussed earlier, the research work of Dr. Kasatkin Nikolaevich on dreams
associated with the hidden – not yet manifested or in the early stage of a disease –
ailments and disorders in the body, has brought out many important implications. These
are useful in predictions, early detection, and cure of several diseases – including the
ones, which are manifested only in the advanced stage.

Largely accepted and verified experiences of the above kinds include the following. If
one dreams that a particular portion of the body is being pressed, pinched, or being
examined by someone, and if there is no problem with that organ in reality, there is a
likelihood of some disease, internal damage or deficiency in the corresponding part or
function of the body. Sometimes the possible attack of a disease is indicated in the
dream as –– someone (in acquaintance or even a stranger) is asking the dreamer about
his health, or, is suggesting some medicines for a disease, or the dreamer is meeting a
patient of that diseaseetc.

While interpreting the above kinds of dreams, care should be taken that the dream is not
an exaggerated subconscious expression of the present condition of the body or an
offshoot of the dreamer’s false doubt. For example, the heaviness of stomach caused by
indigestion may also give rise to the experiences in dreams that might be interpreted as
indications of cancer in stomach or so.
The same could also be advised in the context of the precognitive dreams.

Sleep, Dream and Spiritual Reflections

Very often one’s daydreaming, wishful thinking, hidden fear, or suspicion is also
reflected in the dreams. But, these are reflections of the conscious or the subconscious
mind only. This is why the dreams of gamblers that depict winning a lottery or race are
hardly found to be true. Lazy students, who don’t study through out the year, usually
dream of failing in the exam. This also is predominantly a consequence of their inherent
apprehension rather than being a precognition.

If it were so easy to guess about winning a lottery or to infer the level of examination
paper via dreams, most of the gamblers would have become billionaires and controllers
of world’s wealth without industriousness, or, students would have been exhaling in
their schools without any effort in their studies.

Then what distinguishes a precognitive or ‘visionary’ dream from the subconscious
manifestations of bodily functions, mental, or emotional reflections? This still remains a
debatable issue and subject matter of deeper investigation for the researchers today.

As general tips, the clarity of dream, its occurrence in a state of deep sleep without any
visible or currently existing cause that might trigger similar reflections, recurrence of the
same dream, thorough analysis vis-à-vis expert guidance, etc, may be regarded as the
prerequisites for proper interpretations of the dreams with respect to the popular
implications – extracted from the experiences of the dream-seers of India – of the kind
cited below.
