Of all philosophical systems of the world it is the Vedantic philosophy that has given the greatest emphasis on the study of the three states of consciousness: Waking Dream and Deep Sleep that are experienced by every human being in day to day.
The world which teems with so many problems possibilities, expectations of life seems to assume a different perspective the moment one enters into sleep.
The magic wand of mind weaves a different world during dream. it pursues a different set of objects a different form of relationships; it seeks solutions for different problems. It is so amazing that within minutes the most vesing problems of the waking state give way to a totally different world of problems in dream.
And still more mysterious us the sleep state wherein all realities of the world are drowned in a mysterious stillness. One is not even aware of Time and space much less can he be aware of the problems, relationships, and realities of day to day life. A mother who yearned to be constantly with her loving child but within moments of sleep she exists fully satisfied with herself. All communications from this world are stopped during sleep.
It is by delving deep into the mysteries of these three states that the philosophy of Vedanta shows that the innermost self in man is beyond the three stats of consciousness. The worlds of waking state and of dream state are phenomena of relativity caused by the projections of the mind. The fructifying Karma of a person conditions his mind in a particular manner. This conditioned mind reveals one’s life and its realities in the waking state as well as in the dream state of consciousness.
As the inner structure of the mind changes the realities of the day to day world become like dream fantasies. In course of time the conditions that were once considered so real are hardly recalled by one’s mind. Viewing the soul as a sojourner through the world of time and space the waking realities are described as experiences in a “long dream” from which the soul must wake up to realize its essential nature- the self.
Though separated from all realities, relationships and conditions of the world of objects yet a person continues to exits happily during deep sleep. How is it that he loses hold of his innate possibility of being happy without the objects of the world when he wakes up? How is it possible for him to maintain the relaxed state of sleep even during his day to day activities? An insight into these vital question has been presented in the following pages of this book.
