a couple of questions, if i may...?

Postby tara_lynn » Sun Dec 25, 2011 3:47 am

1. what does it mean when you dream of HH dalai lama? i read somewhere that it's not really a "dream"...?

2. what is the naga realm?

I do not know anything about such things, but if I were having such dreams I'd be making notes of them for future reference. You never know...

Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats

It is actually quite uncommon to have a dream of HH Dalai Lama. You should consider it a blessing.

Chalk up another HHDL dream. All I remember is, he was really angry and everyone was trying to calm him down.

Is that weird or what?

I dreamed about HHDL once. I was following him around everywhere, while he walked around in very ordinary circumstances, like a festival or something, completely unattended. Sometimes people walked with him, but no entourage. I kept doing weird and somewhat embarrassing things but then just returned to walking with him. Sounds fairly symbolic when I decribe it but I've always thought of dreams like mental by-products. Some you remember because your sleep is light, some you don't. Is there any reason to think otherwise?
