Four Great References for analyzing a teaching:

1. Without approval and without scorn, carefully study and examine it

2. Check to see if it is in the discourses

3. If it is in the discourses, check to see if verifiable by the Discipline

4. If it meets these references, you can conclude that it is a teaching of the Dhamma

(from Digha Nikaya 16)
