Dreams of two Buddhas

Dreams of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, Buddhas, saints, Taoist deities, religious figures such as the Pope and the Dalai Lama are auspicious dreams. They are blessings. I dreamt of meeting the Dalai Lama and he praised my work. To me, that was a spiritual approval of what I was doing at the time. In Chinese dream interpretations, the deities and saints and religious figures come to the dreamer and they usually come as a blessing. They also come to provide spiritual encouragement.

In traditional Chinese dream folklore, seeing the statue of the Buddha or the Goddess of Mercy on an altar inside a temple is auspicious. If the statues came alive or moved or spoke in the dream, this is even more auspicious. It indicates that the deity is actively blessing the dreamer. A trip in real life to the temple to offer incense in gratitude for the dream is an obligation for many Asian dreamers.
