Deciphering the dream and the deity…

I have already written about a strange but significant dream which I saw a few days back. I have also written about the number of ways in which that dream had links with Goddess Lalita in my post Kundalini Experiences – part 8. But what’s really amazing is that, ever so often, more and more links between my dream and Goddess Lalita keep popping in my way…

Today I was reading about the meanings of the Sanskrit verses in the sacred text of Goddess Lalita – the Lalita Sahasranama, when I came across this word: ‘Chidagnikundasambhutha’ – referring to the origin of Devi Lalita.

‘Chidagnikundasambhutha’ means – Born from the Pit of the Fire of Consciousness.

What makes this word special for me is that in my dream, I was offering the Red Sari to the Goddess (surprisingly, Goddess Lalita is actually described as wearing a red sari in the scriptures) but I was making the offering in a pit! Yes that’s right – not in a temple, not before a statue, but in a large pit in the ground…

“In my dream, I saw myself descending, from what seemed like a raised platform or cliff, onto a ground, which had many large pits. I then proceeded to offer a red sari (a traditional women’s wear for Hindus) with a golden border and small golden floral prints, into one of those pits in that ground. Even though I was offering the sari into a pit I was actually meaning to offer that sari to the ‘Devi’ (Goddess) or ‘Shakti’.” Kundalini Experiences – part 8

…and all this while, I was wondering whether my act of offering the Red Sari in a pit (when I actually meant to offer it to the Goddess), made any sense at all!

…and boom, just like that I find the missing link ….and it totally makes a lot of sense now!

How cool is that? 🙂

  1. WOW! I love this dream and have just discovered your blog – I look forward to reading more. Offering a red sari is such a powerful image. It is so fascinating to stumble upon your blog now, as just a few days ago I was remembering an incredibly powerful dream I had after my own initial kundalini experiences. In the dream I am falling at the feet of the Goddess and she tells me one simple phrase….”This is your chance for liberation…” The dream still haunts me and mesmerizes me every time I think about it – it is so powerful. So wonderful to connect with you here. Blessings, Amanda

    1. You know, the way things have been happening around me in the past few days,…it has actually made be wonder if anything is just a coincidence. Therefore, from what I gather about your dream, I feel that we might get to learn a lot from each other. Such dreams often tend to have a hidden meaning and often times their mystery unfolds spontaneously over time, as we get help & guidance from unexpected quarters (like when I found that other blog about the Goddess : serioussadhana blogspot very recently).
      …and, of course getting such a great reassurance from the Goddess herself is no ordinary thing.
      I’m so happy for your experience! …and thank you so much for your kind wishes 🙂
      looking forward to reading your experiences…
