Dream Meanings According to Hinduism


Dreams have always been a mystery to people. Why we dream and what our dreams symbolize are questions which people have been asking since ancient times. Today, science is advanced enough to be able to explain certain aspects of this unique parallel world but there are still many seeking an explanation.

According to Hinduism, our dreams are something more than plain visual pictures that our subconsciousness "draws"; they are an indication of our past, present and future. It is believed that the majority of our dreams have the goal of focusing our attention on a particular message that is important to us.

But of course, to correctly "read" the message, we must accurately interpret the symbols. This may aid us in protecting ourselves from an eventual danger or help us put in more efforts in achieving a certain goal. Here are some of these symbols along with their meanings:


Eclipse: Your hopes will remain vain. Do not trust your friends because they are not honest with you. Watch out for fatal diseases.

Earthquake: Be cautious, this is the symbol of loss and ruin. This can apply to any area of your life - family, business, love, friendship.

Elephant: This is the symbol of good health, success, strength, prosperity, intelligence. Happy days await you.

Embroidery and decorations: Do not be overly trusting of the people close to you, it is quite possible for you to end up being fooled and disappointed by them.


Hunger: This symbol is interpreted exactly opposite to its real meaning. If you dream that you are hungry, many material successes and a benevolent flow of events await you.

Fire: Good health and great happiness await you, you will gain new true friends and supporters.

Flood: If you deal with commerce, good days are coming for you. Business is booming. For everyone else however, a flood is a symbol of poor health and an unpleasant flow of events.

Flowers: If you dream that you are picking beautiful flowers, this is an indication of current and future prosperity. You will be very happy in every aspect of your life.

Frogs: These animals might not be particularly pleasant for you but if you dream of them, you are a lucky person. Expect great success in the very near future.


Ghost: This is a very bad omen. Be ready to overcome serious challenges.

Girl: All hopes will come true. A girl is a symbol of success and well-being.

God: This is very rare but if you see God in your dream, it is a symbol of exceptional success and ascension.

Your childhood home: Good days are to come, this is the symbol of complete prosperity.

Husband: If you dream of your own husband, this is a sign that your wishes will come true.

Traveling: This indicates a great change in your living conditions to come.
