Between C and D, I would choose C ..

"through an ichana (dream) experience" sounds better than "by means of an ichana (dream) experience" ..

I don't know what "it" refers on A and B.

E is wordy.

I picked D.

C said "contact with the latter directly through"

this was different from "direct contact", which is why i elimnated it.

Contact with it is bad. What is it ? things ? material level ? mystical level?
So A and B are out

(C) contact with the latter directly through --> the contact should be what 'direct' modifies, not the medium

(D) direct contact with the latter by means of --> This is the best option

(E) contact directly with the mystical level due to --> Due to is like 'because'. He had direct contact not because of a dream but through a dream
