Revelation is testimony from a trustworthy source. In the scriptures, it is called sabda, lit. ‘that which is heard’. There are two types of sabda:

  • pauruseya: testimony from human beings
    • This is subject to the four defects mentioned above
  • apauruseya: testimony from a non-human, that is, divine source
    • This is not subject to the four defects.
