Please note that this is not an attack on Dvaita, Vishistadvaita and Achintya-Bheda-Abheda. This is information seeking question.

We know the famous analogy of the universe compared with a dream in Advaita. This claim is refused by Dvaita, Vishishtadvaita and Achintya-Bheda-Abheda .

So I was just curious whether these schools consider our dreams to be an illusion or a reality. What is their stance on dream state?

What is the dream experienced by a person after he wakes. What is the dream to him according to dualistic schools. If you can please include some references so that authenticity of the answer is established. You can answer from any one's school's point of view.

  • Add Achintya-Bheda-Abheda also. – Surya Kanta Bose Chowdhury May 9 '19 at 20:35
  • @Surya yes Vishistadvaitha is there no. Isn't it the same thing? Vishistadvaitha is bhedabheda. – VARUN.N RAO May 10 '19 at 6:27
  • Achintya-Bheda-Abheda is slightly different than Vishishtadvaita actually. @Chakrapani N Rao – Surya Kanta Bose Chowdhury May 10 '19 at 6:39

    Well, they consider the experience and knowledge of dream state is real. Visit closely related post Are dreams created by Jivatma or Paramatma? Where Vishisthadvaita and Dvaita agree on dreams are created by supreme self, not by individual self as said by Advaita. – Pandya May 10 '19 at 15:38

    @ChakrapaniNRao I don't know much about it. Refer this section of Sri Bhashya. – Pandya May 10 '19 at 15:52
