Dreams for a Jnani
« on: January 25, 2009, 10:41:25 AM »
Once Bhagavan Ramana has said that even Jnanis would have dreams while sleeping.  Such dreams could be about the gods
or temples.  On another occasion, when S.S. Cohen asked if the
Jnani dreams, Bhagavan Ramana answered:

Yes. He does dream. But he knows it to be dream in the same way
as he knows the waking state to be a dream.  You may call them
dream No. 1 and dream No.2.  The Jnani being established in the fourth state, that is, Turiya, the Supreme Reality -- he detachedly witnesses the three other states, waking, dreaming and dreamless
sleep -- as pictures superimposed on it.
