DREAMS
of a person during waking hours are stored in his subconscious
mind. Since subconscious mind continues to function during
sleep also, it presents the same experiences and desires in the
form of symbols in the dreams. For example, if a person has
According to Atharva Veda high sexual desire, he sees rhythmical activities such as dance,
riding, moving up and down the stairs etc., in his dreams which
are symbols of sexual intercourse. Freud gave more importance
for the sexual content of the dreams. Long slender objects like
sticks, knives, flagpoles, water taps etc. represent male genitals
and hollow objects like vessels, vases, caves, pits represent
female genitals.

Carl Jung connects dreams with different personality types


which he calls ‘archetypes’. These archetypes appear as different
persons or images in the dreams. For example, a man contains
within him some feminine qualities which appear in the dream
in the form of females. The innocent and pure heartedness of
the man appears as a child in his dream. His teacher or father
who helps him will appear as a ‘wise old man’ giving him
guidance in the dream. The negative aspects like weaknesses

demon. The demon forced all to chant Om Hiranyaya Namaha.
Everybody did so. But his own son refused to do so. He chanted
the name of Lord Mahavishnu. Oneday, Hiranyakasibu asked,
“dear son, will your god Mahavishnu come inside this pillar and
save you and kicked a huge pillar at the main hall of his palace.

During sixteenth century many authors have written books on
this subject. Gerolamo Cardano, born in Italy in 1501, wrote
many books on Medicine, Mathematics, Astronomy, Physics,
Astrology, Dream Analysis, and Physiognomy. Cardano believed
that a person’s character and fate are symbolized by the shape,
lines, and markings of his or her forehead. He wrote a total
of 13 books on the subject of forehead reading. In 1586, Porta
published ‘De humana physiognoma’ in which he compares
the likenesses of human beings to certain animals. He says
if some one resembles a particular animal, he will also have
the same tendencies and temperament of that animal. Kaspar
Lavater(1741-1801) was regarded as the founder of the modern
Physiognomy for his tremendous work in this subject. Later on
Cesare Lombroso has made this subject more popular.

it is quite private,” he said. “No one will disturb us; please take

and could not say a word. He broke the uncomfortable silence by
saying, “You are a Pinkerton’s detective, I suppose.” My strange
behavior had made him think that.

“No, not from Pinkerton’s,” I said. Such an answer made him


think that I was a detective from some other agency; so I hastened
to say, “To tell you the honest truth, I am not a detective at all. I
have come to open an account, you see, from now on. I would like

Fortunately, the manager was free at that time and the accountant

serious. It frightened me. I held my fifty-six dollars tightly in my

you the Manager?” I asked him. It was a foolish question because
I knew full well that he was. “Yes,” he answered. “Can I see you?”
I asked, and added once more, “…alone.” The Question seemed
silly without this last word.
