Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


TRANSLATION

Although while dreaming a person experiences many undesirable things, upon awakening he is no longer confused by the dream experiences.


PURPORT

Even a liberated soul must observe material objects while living in this world. But being awake to Kṛṣṇa consciousness, he understands that sensory pains and pleasures, like dreams, are without substance. Thus the liberated soul is not bewildered by illusion.
