Swami Ram Swarup: According to Vedas, dreams are false.
About dreams, Atharvaveda kand 16 sukta 5 throws light. Conclusion of the mantras is that one who weeps for those who have gone to heavenly abode, his age is also reduced.
Atharvaveda mantras 16/5/1,2,3 states that the dreams is the reason to create early death. Dreams is sorrowful like death. Next mantra 4 also states that dreams creates early death. Next mantra 5 states that dreams minimizes the wealth. Again, mantra states that dreams causes loss. Dreams is the reason for defeat. Atharvaveda mantra 7/100/1 states that impious dreams create sins in mind. Atharvaveda mantra 7/101/1 states that dreams are not true yet create above quoted problems. So, in several ved mantras, dreams are stated to be harmful.
The dreams are mostly false. Dreams are based on the scenes, stories listened in previous life as well as in present life. Samveda is upasana kand and tells worship for one immortal formless God, Who is Almighty, Omnipresent, Omniscient. He creates, nurses and destroys the universe and again creates, Vedas say that no one was equal to God and neither no God took birth in the past at present and will never take birth in the future too. There was one God, is one and will ever remain one. He is only everlasting eternal and unchageable king/lord of the universe. So we all must worship him only. In this connection guidance from a learned acharya of Vedas is necessary.
It is true that dreams come on the basis of the scene which we have seen in present as well as previous lives’. For example- if a person has never seen a fountain and he sees fountain in dream, it means he had seen the fountain in his previous life, the effect of which was imprinted on his chitta (mind).
Secondly, dreams are false. Dreams may give some pleasure but become painful sometimes. If a business man observes that he was a king in the dream but when he will wake up, he remains business man only and not the king. Vedas state that one should try to do worship of God to remove the occurrence of dreams in sleep.
Future is always based on past birth’ deeds or is based on present pious deeds. future is therefore in own hand, he who discharges his moral duties faithfully does hard deeds, pious deeds with full concentration, devotion and dedication, his future is always bright. One should attend satsang making time available to learn truth and know pious deeds to make future bright.
