9780143100232: An Open Window:Dream as Everyman's Guide to the Spirit

Movement on the spiritual path necessarily involves taking light into the dark corners of our psyche, and it is there that dreams provide an open window into the spiritual reality. In the early years of the twentieth century, Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung proposed that, more often than not, dreams represent those thoughts and memories which are unbearably painful and have been relegated ot the realm of the unconscious. Unlocking the meanings in these dreams can help people free their mind and feelings from irrational desires, fears and insecurities. This brief but profound book assails the 'conventional' understanding of dreams and their interpretation, drawing attention to a much neglected aspect of dreams as a source of guidance for the spiritual aspirant. It uses the insights of psychology, but transcends it, to confront the inescapable questions most people should be driven by: What is the purpose of life, and does it all end with death? Laying bare dreams of childhood anxiety, traumas and sexuality - 'cleaning the windows' to uncover the deeply buried material that blocks our efforts on the inner path - it then invites contention from 'materialists' in its discusion of subjects beyond psychology, such as precognitive dreams, reincarnation, out-of-the-body-experiences, death dreams, and numinous or 'big dreams' - 'an open window' through which deeper, non-physical levels of reality can shine. Drawing on examples from real life, Sri Madhava Ashish teaches the 'language of dreams', ensuring a better understanding and awareness of the unconscious self, guiding the reader on the path to mental and spiritual freedom.

About the Author:

Sri Madhava Ashish (1920-1997), who was for many years the head of a remote ashram, Mirtola, in the Kumaon hills of northern India, was a spiritual teacher whose teachings transcend conventional religious categories. Born in Edinburgh, Sri Madhava Ashish was trained as an aircraft engineer in London and came to India during the Second World War. While traveling in India after the war, he met the great sage Ramana Maharshi at Tiruvannamalai and realized the supreme importance of the inner quest. His search led him to the Mirtola ashram and to his guru, Sri Krishna Prem, an English professor who had become a Vaishnava monk. At Sri Krishna Prem's death nearly twenty years later, Sri Madhava Ashish became head of the ashram and with his successor, Dev Ashish, he transformed the ashram farm and forest, making it a model for environmentally sound rural development. He served on several Planning Commision committees for hill development, and was awared the Padma Shri by the Government of India in 1992 for his work on environmental education. In his teachings, Sri Madhava Ashish integrated tradition and modern thought, eastern wisdom and western analysis. He wrote several books and numerous articles for international publications.
