Reference 09: There are many dreams that are good dreams. For example, dreams that involve mountains, palaces or snakes. Or the dreamer might dream that he is riding on a horse or a bull. It is also good to dream of white flowers in the sky or to see trees in a dream. Especially good dreams are those of the dreamer's possessing many arms or many heads or of grass and bushes sprouting form his navel. What if you dream of wearing white garlands or clothes? That too is good. If you dream of Eclipses of the Sun, the Moon or the Stars, by all means rejoice. And if in a dream you see that you have caught hold of the enemy's flag, that surely means that you will triumph over the enemy. And if you actually dream of defeating the enemy, the interpretation is clear enough.
Reference 10: "O virtuous one! Those who develop gardens and parks also receive same virtues. Those who preserve them, receive more virtues than the developers. One who plants a basil sapling saves his crores of ancestors. Similarly, those who bath the Lord Vishnu's idol with milk on Dwadashi and Poornamasi save millions of their ancestors. Those who bath Lord's idol with Panchamrit on Ekadashi, receive everlasting joy and salvation. Similarly, those who bath Lord's idol with coconut milk, sugarcane juice, and water containing flowers or filtered water, get free from all their sins. Similarly, those who bath Lord Vishnu's idol during Eclipses or on auspicious dates and conjugations, receive the virtue of all the Yagyas. Those who bath Lord Vishnu's and Shiva's idols with coconut milk, ghee, honey and sesame oil on auspicious dates, assume respective appearances of these Gods."
Reference 11: Lord Shiva had told Kartikeya: Donating gold either at Kurukshetra or Ramteerth, on a Solar Eclipse day, helps a man in attaining salvation.
