General forum on the teachings of all schools of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. Topics specific to one school are best posted in the appropriate sub-forum.
Sources of valid knowing or knowledge vary between Indian schools of thought. Buddhism has just two; reason-based inference and direct perception of the senses. Although I think the latter can be expanded to include yogic direct perception.
Any other notion, dream, insight or vision that we have, needs confirmation by a wise guru to say whether there is any truth in them or not.
Only consider helping others and forget yourself. Master Hsuan Hua
