Like a Dream

The material world is like a dream (svapna). In dreams we sometimes cry out, laugh or cry, see things and perform many activities that are evidence of “reality.” But what is reality? Vaisanva philosophy holds that everything in this present life is ‘like a dream.” It appears to be real, but like a dream it is temporary and will evaporate. It is less than an instant in the grand sweep of time. Some of you may remember part of a song that was popular in the sixties whose lyrics went like this: “There are places I remember all my life though some have changed — some forever not for better. Some have gone and some remain.” Great saints are always detached from this material body, knowing true, or REAL reality, the ultimate destination, is the spiritual world at the Lotus Feet of their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Krsna.
