Five Siva and a Goddess

This dream came on the Dashami after Ramanavmi in calendar year 2012.

In a somewhat lighted cave, there were five Siva with grey body and tiger skin. All of them were standing. Of them, the second and the fourth one were making gestures with a generous smile on their faces. Their gestures were not identical, though probably in tandem. Then came Jagadambaa dressed in red drapes and with a small crown on forehead. She was welcomed between the third and the fourth Siva (from the left). Jagambdaa turned around and sat down on a seat. My dream ended there.

Padmaragaprabha Parvati

I saw a life-size statue of Goddess Parvati. She was fair complexioned with all the ornaments. The statue was kept in a grand room, the details of which I do not remember. Goddess Parvati had all the ornaments. Her face was beautiful. Among them, I was paying attention to the hair-parting ornament (maang-teeka) and ear-rings. Both of them had large "padmaraaga" (best quality rubies) studded. The rubies were quite large. The precious gems were making the cheeks and forehead of Goddess Parvati reddish in color.

Hanuman Temple

This dream is about two months old. I saw that I am in the compound (ksetra) of a Hanuman temple and I am waiting for a friend (who is a Hanuman devotee). The temple ksetra was beautiful and clean, and the time was sandhya-vela.

Dream 32: Siva Tandav Stotra

On the next night after the night of Dream 31, I saw this dream about the recitation of Siva Tandav Stotra. Some benevolent teacher (unseen before in life) was training me to sing the stotra in a tune that I was unaware of. The tune was simple but enticing. Some words of the stotra were different from what is commonly published nowadays. I forgot the words and the tune on waking up.

Dream 31: Wandering in villages

This dream is about five days old. In the dream, during a journey towards Āmī (Bihar), I get stuck around a village. I did not see any mode of transport, which probably means I was on foot. I noticed a hand-pump and I decided to wash my hands and feet in its water, before moving ahead. However, I noticed my ancestor's village home on reaching the hand-pump, and therefore I decided to take blessings from my village relatives.

No one replied to my door-knocks, after which I entered through the doors on my own. I noticed a bright and grand room, with lots of photos and small idols of Pārvatī decked up against the wall. I immediately took a bow. The floor was made of white marble. In another room to the left of Pārvatī temple, was a room of Lakṣmī decked up in a similar fashion. I noticed two more rooms before my dream ended. One room had many small idols and photos of Kṛṣṇa, and the last one had a somewhat large wooden idol of Gaṇeśa.

Dream 30: Two temples

This dream is about a month old. During the night or during a dark evening, I saw two adjacent temples, one of Śiva and one of Pārvatī (Devi). The temples were lighted from outside and they looked beautiful.

Dream 29: Ganesh, Siva, Parvati

This dream is from 15th May week in 2009. I saw Gaṇeśa, along with Śiva and Pārvatī, in some unknown location. Gaṇeśa was clad in a shining dark-blue garment. I do not remember the cloth of Śiva and Pārvatī.

A similar image of Gaṇeśa can be found at Ghee Happy.

Dream 28: Rama, Sita, and Gauri

This dream is from 15th May week in 2009. I was around a huge mansion (haveli) in the night, with moonlight shining in the field. I saw some elderly aunts, whom I respect deeply. Inside the mansion, there were stairs leading to the roof. I went up on the stairs, till I finally met a temple.

The temple had a unified idol, consisting of Rāma, Sītā, and Gaurī (with Sītā in the middle). Within the dream, I thought that this temple represents the blessing of Gaurī to Sītā in the puṣpavāṭikā.

Dream 27: The temple of Shiv

This dream is about two to three months old. I was standing at a three-way crossing, which mapped itself to two geographical locations. In the first location within USA, I was waiting for my friend to pick me up. I was standing with some items in hand. In the second location, I was confronted by a temple and a priest in India. I still had those items in hand and the priest refused to let me in with everything. He asked me to come inside without those things. I ended up in a debate, whether I should leave everything outside for theft or not. I finally went inside, and offered Moong Dal (lentil) to the Linga of Shiva. The Linga was in an earthen-lamp lit setting. Otherwise the room was dark.

Dream 26: Healer Baby Gopal

This dream is from January 2008. I am somewhat late in posting it.

I was troubled by a nasty upper-back pain for about two three weeks, starting from the second week of December. I did some exercises, stretching, etc. to no avail. Later, I also took a week off from work and completely relaxed. The pain didn't go away.

During those troubled times, I had a dream of Baby Gopal. It was about early morning. I was sleeping on my bed with my back towards the ceiling. In my dream, I was sleeping in an identical fashion. He was standing next to me. In the dream, Gopal was gliding his palm over my back, from my neck to my waist. The dream itself was not long. I woke up and to my surprise, the pain was gone.
