In our dream we keep hearing sounds which are coming from outside environment , those sounds seamlessly blend into dream.

Ex: if the alarm goes off, in dreams it blends and we dog barking continuously. Some kind of dangers also peek in and warn us - like getting hit by car, drowning etc

  • How is possible?
  • Do dreams travel in waves?
  • Are warnings based on Karma?
    • Some of our fore fathers are warning?
  • Sir, I want know what Vedas say. I want to stress on Karma part. – user76466 Oct 9 '14 at 15:17
  • OK, then edit your question to focus on the Karma part, and make it clear that you want to know what the Vedas say on the matter. – Keshav Srinivasan Oct 9 '14 at 15:20
  • What do you mean by "outside" while you are dreaming? – Hindu Oct 10 '14 at 8:46
  • Outside means our surroundings, like alarm sound, someone knocking door. These get translated into dreams. I experienced many times. – user76466 Oct 10 '14 at 12:33
  • @user76466 As I said, if you want your question reopened then you should focus it one thing, rather ham just asking a generic dream question which would just be a duplicate of a previous question. Like if you're specifically interested on whether the Vedas talk about dreams being related to Karma, as you said before, then edit your question to focus on that. – Keshav Srinivasan Oct 10 '14 at 17:05

According to the Upanishads, there are 4 states of consciousness. The waking, dream, dreamless, and the Turiya.The first 3 states are what are experienced by us as living beings, the 4th state (Turiya) is the consciousness of Brahman (Mandukyopanishad 1-7).

Mandukya Upanishad (II.1) - "The wise declare the falsity of all objects in a dream because of the location of the objects inside (the body) and because of (their) contraction."
