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
