ISKCON 50 Meditations: March 10, 2016

Prabhupada and Dreams

The appearance of Srila Prabhupada in dreams is a shaky kind of evidence that cannot always be held as absolutely true, free of all symbolism or mental concoction.  We often don’t like to hear other people’s dreams about Prabhupada, especially when they claim they are literally true.  If Prabhupada appears in a dream and says, “There’s going to be a world war.  You should immediately go to south Italy.” – It may mean many things.  It may not be a literal order from Prabhupada himself.

Still, dreams are worth pursuing.  Much of our conscious life is spent trying to capture Prabhupada’s presence, but so much time is spent in sleep.  If one can dream of Prabhupada and Krishna, then that time will not be wasted.  And in fact, dreaming of Prabhupada or Krishna may be a good sign that Krishna consciousness is finally infiltrating one’s heart.

One who craves to be with him will accept whatever he can get, even infrequent, inconclusive dreams.
