Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha skillfully dissects the parallel worlds of dream and wakefulness to get to the Source of it all. Swamiji explains why the two are used by our scriptures to present the Truth, and gives a glimpse of the elevated state of being that follows proper comprehension.
Wakefulness and dream are twin experiences of every individual. From our standard perception we understand wakefulness to have a constancy about it, with a common validity and the link of causality. Dream on the other hand is strikingly inconsistent, is very much a personal affair and simply appears. We all know dream world to be unreal, but believe the wakeful world to be real. Herein lies the supremacy of the scriptures in highlighting our foolishness. The bottom line is both are written in Consciousness, our true identity which is the only reality. When, with the compassionate guidance of our Spiritual Masters, we understand this Truth, we will reach the abode of fearlessness and be forever free of grief.

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
