Jnanis say that both dream and waking are the creations of the deluded mind. Because, in both of them,thoughts and names-and-forms exist in the same manner.

If it is asked, ‘[When the dream-body and the waking- body are thus different,] how does the semen in the waking-body drip out when one sees in dream that the dream-body has contacted a woman?’, the answer will be that it is due to the speed of attachment with which one springs from the dream-body to the waking-body.

Guru Vachaka Kovai is the biggest collection of Bhagavan’s spoken teachings that was thoroughly checked and revised by him during his lifetime. As such it has a unique place in the Ramana literature.

Dear prasanth,

Yes.  Bhagavan Ramana used to say often:  The mind is the condensed body.  That is why, when we get a nighmarish dream,
that we are being chased by a tiger, we wake up and we find that
our body has sweated.  The emotions speedily attach to the
body and bring out changes in body conditions.  So is the case
with a virulent dream about sexual union and the body shows up.

Arunachala Siva.
