Dream and Multiverse and Its Link with Hinduism
The concept of the multiverse is a hot topic among researchers, physicians, and scientists. Modern Day science now starts believing in the concept of the Multiverse. However, the ancient Hindu sculpture reveals this concept a way before. You can find the concept of multiverse in various Hindu books such as Ramayana and Mahabharata. For that, I will make a separate topic. But you can imagine the farsightedness of ancient Hindu saints and yogis. The Hindu literature is quite scientific and modern-day scientists are using the literature for their research. In this topic, I am correlating the multiverse and dreams and their link with Hinduism.
Dream and Multiverse
When we sleep we experience dreams that are beyond imagination. Sometimes we experience things that might not happen in our life. However, the plot and character will be the same but the things happening in dreams are different. Have you ever wondered why this happens?
Sometimes you are too happy in the dream and achieved what you are not achieving in the present life, or sometimes you can be sad and full of fear with the things that you don’t want to happen in this life. However, there are many researches going on dreams but scientists are still in the exploring step. Although some scientists claimed that this can be due to the multiverse.
Multiverse or Parallel Universe is known as a universe which is running at a slow or fast pace compared to our universe. As described in Ramayana and Mahabharata, there are numerous universes in which life is going on. Although the characters are the same but the plot may be different from ours. This is well described in the instant when Lord Krishna invites Brahams from the various Universe.
In our dream our subconscious mind gets active, and it can help you in traveling to various universes. Maybe what you saw in your dream is happening to you in some other Universe. It’s just that your subconscious mind makes you travel to the other one for just a fraction of the time. In ancient times, Rishi Munis in India use to travel through their subconscious mind. So, this fact cannot be denied that in a dream one can travel from one place to another or even one universe to another. This can be also linked with the Mandela effect.
Scientific Chain with Hinduism
In Hinduism, there is one crow that was a devotee of Lord Rama ( Incarnation of Lord Vishnu) named Kakbhushundi. He can go out of space and time described by Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. So, in India when someone saw the dreams of their dead ancestors or at the time of Sharad (a month dedicated to ancestors), so we use to give food to crows. This is the main reason behind it as they believe that Kakbhushundi in the form of a crow can convey the message to the other universe. Thus in Hinduism texts such as Upanishads, YYoga Vasistha, Mahabharata, and Ramayana.
References of the connection between Dreams and Parallel Universes in ancient Indian texts
As per Hinduism, dreams are believed to be a window through which individuals can access different dimensions of reality or communicate with divine entities. Here are some references:
The Upanishads, philosophical texts associated with the Vedas, mention the concept of the dream state as a parallel reality. They describe the dream state as an intermediate level of consciousness, where the mind can transcend the physical limitations of the waking world and access higher knowledge.
The Yoga Vasistha, an ancient spiritual text, contains a dialogue between sage Vasistha and Lord Rama. It delves into the nature of reality and the illusory nature of the universe. The text explores the idea that the dream state is as real as the waking state and that both are part of the cosmic dream of the ultimate reality.
The Mahabharata, one of the two great epics of Hinduism, features various instances where dreams are used to convey messages or warnings. For example, King Duryodhana experienced a series of ominous dreams that foreshadowed the Kurukshetra war.
The Ramayana, another prominent Hindu epic, also has references to dreams. Lord Rama had a dream of Goddess Sita appearing before him, providing solace and guidance during his exile.
While these references do not explicitly mention parallel universes, they indicate the belief in the interconnectedness of different realms and states of consciousness within Hindu cosmology. The concept of dreams as a means to access alternate dimensions and higher knowledge aligns with the idea of parallel universes or realities existing beyond the physical realm in Hindu thought. However, interpretations of these texts may vary, and the understanding of dreams and parallel universes can differ among different schools of Hindu philosophy and belief systems.
Can we Willingly Travel to Another Universe through Dreams?
As of now, scientifically it can be possible but we can’t deny the theory. In ancient India, saints uses the power of the subconscious mind to travel beyond limits. However, if you can control your dream you can also do it for a short period of time. For that, you have to be aware in the dream that you are not physically here and are in a dream. this can help you to travel to another dimension with the power of the mind.
