Doubts about Dreams
Dreams are usually described as the exasperations of the suppressed memories in the sub conscious mind. Many more reasons are also given for dreams. In a medical journal I have read that even indigestion would cause dreams! But in almost all the religions of the world dreams are linked with some divinity. Whether dreams have divine nature or not, some times they are very strange and puzzling. I want to narrate two strange dreams I had several years back.
In my first dream , I was in front of a building which looked like a mosque. Everybody there was weeping. They were shouting "Bava Bava" A dead body was brought there and it was laid in a decorative coffin. I tried to go near the coffin and look at the body. Suddenly somebody pulled me back and I was awakened. I could not understand the dream. In the morning I completely forgot the dream and I was engaged in my routine work. When I was in my office one of my friend came to me and asked "Do you know? Manjakollai Bava expired last night"
" Manjakollai Bava? Who is he? I never heard about him."
"Hey Don't you know him? He is a Muslim saint lived at Manjakollai village and he has hundreds of followers" My friend explained.
"Is it? I never heard about him even though that village is only 15 Kms away from my native place. But last night I had a dream in which I saw some one called as Bava has been laid to rest! It might be that Bava you told. But how it is? How I have a dream of a person whom I never heard or seen in my life?"
My friend also wondered but he could not explain any thing.
In my next dream, I saw two aircrafts crashed and fell in the backyard of my neighbor's New House. The aircrafts caught fire and a thick smoke spread through out the town. People were very much terrified and were running in panic. My dream abruptly ended with that. I could not understand any thing from this dream but I thought it was all because of the air crash, I read some days back in the news papers. But the next day I was very much shocked to hear the news about the "Twin Tower "tragedy in Newyork. Is there any link between my dream and the tragedy? The New House and Newyork? I don't know.
I wont definitely claim any divine power for these dreams, but can any body scientifically explain whether the dreams are mere coincidence or something else?
Many of you might have different experiences with dreams. Why you should not share them in this platform?
