This is completely hypothetical except in the case of coma patients. To even get into dreams of clarity regularly you need some practice in your waking life.

ChNN is not in a coma, and practices dream yoga all the time.

I'm just not sure if dream yoga can be used to eliminate all delusion regarding the basis.

I would presume that delusion has do to with the psychosomatic function in the brain.

No it comes from neutral awareness (sh shes pa lung ma bstan) not recognizing itself.

Oh, then I must be referring to something else. Cognition or Cognitive function?..not sure but "delusion" does and can happen.

Definitely can.

However, there is always a question of what do you mean by the elimination of all delusions?

Do you mean that when someone hits you, your anger will no longer appear?
I am not here nor there.
I am not right nor wrong.
I do not exist neither non-exist.
I am not I nor non-I.
I am not in samsara nor nirvana.
To All Buddhas, I bow down for the teaching of emptiness. Thank You!

Probably, but it would only work if one has already has stable recognition during the waking state.
It is simply impractical to practice Dream Yoga exclusively without already establishing significant experience while awake.

I think the opportunity always exits for liberation, regardless if we are in the dream state, waking state or in the bardo. Isn't this what makes Dzogchen so direct? But, no I don't really understand Dzogchen, so...

For discussion's sake, lets assume integrated trekcho while awake.

You changed the title of this thread when I was typing my reply. You were asking if it were possible to complete the whole path through dream yoga alone.

I'm actually still asking the same exact thing.

I guess I have to stop using Dzogchen language on this forum.

That doesnt really "dumb things down", it actually complicates the question.

Since one can implement the methods that lead to rainbow body during dream yoga I dont see why it would be impossible.

Well actually its the same freaking question.

Eliminating all delusion regarding the basis = "rainbow body".

I wouldnt say that.
One can eliminate delusions and one can fully integrate.
One is dependent upon the mind while the other is not.

What?

Delusion is a based on mind.
True realization like rainbow body is not.
You can eliminate delusions about the nature of the base and oneself, which is based on mental concepts.
You can fully integrate into that nature, which is not based on mental concepts.
