THE UNIVERSE IS THE DREAM OF GOD

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

THE UNIVERSE IS THE DREAM OF GOD
(another peep into Hindu Philosophy)

The Universe is the dream of Parmatma, the Universal soul. There is only one Soul, but in the dream, the one Soul becomes the many – Jivatma – the individual soul.

Parmatma and Jivatma are identical like the waves which are identical with the one ocean.

As in a dream, the dreamer identifies with the dream and experiences the pleasure and pain of his dream world as if they were real; so the individual soul experiences the joys and sorrows as it identifies with the body, believing that this dream world is the reality.

And just as the dreamer awakens from his dream world to reality, so the individual soul when it awakens and discovers that it is not this body, then its dream world disappears and, as the wave sees itself as the Ocean, he sees himself as the One, the Universal Soul.
