Dear Sri Venkatesh
Some dreams leave lasting impressions.We are able to vividly picturise the dream and are able to even diagrammatically express them.We have so many such instances.So even after the dream has ended Kailas /vaikunta are visualised.In this way can't we say that they are eternal.The jeeva is able to retain the dream impression in his memory.
So even after the dream they are there embedded in the memory,thus eternal for the eka jeeva.
