There are several instances of people receiving instructions, mantras, etc. in a dream. The phala of such things received in the dream is also felt in the waking state. I heard the famous scholar Shri Ranganatha Sharma once remark that even if you commit a sin in a dream, you have to do prAyashcitta (or something to that effect). Also, I have heard some people say, as part of the daily/special pUjA sankalpa, jAgratsvapnasuShupti-avasthAsu..., asking for pApapariha
