“All subjects and objects in the dream can be transformed. In dream yoga you may take a hundred things and transform them into just one, or take one thing and multiply it by a hundred. This is the  practice that Milarepa did during the waking state, when he emanated innumerable forms of a certain object. In one particular account, he emanated himself inside a yak horn, without the yak horn getting bigger or him getting smaller. That is an indication that he was extremely well versed in dream yoga.”—Gyatrul Rinpoche in Natural Liberation
