    Hare Krsna mataji,

    PAMHO.

    I woudl answer this question like this - suppose you are appearing for an exam, its an algebra question. What is the value of x,y,z in the formula. Typically, we will solve the question and whatever values we get for x,y,z, we will check with our co- examinees and confirm they also got the same answer. But, if we get x=1, y=2, z=3, or some such straight answer, we dont need to check with our neighbour, we instinctively know its the right answer. That same way, when the soul is satisfied, then one knows one is on the right path. 

    Another way to know is - we all know cigarette smoking is injurious to health, still there are enough smokers in the world - they are smoking knowing it is bad for their health, because it is giving them some momentary pleasure/ relief. Same way, as long as we experience happiness in whatever we are doing in KC, we are continuing to do. The only difference is we know it is good for us, physically, mentally and spiritually. 

    The third argument I would give is - the taste of the pudding is in the eating. Why not walk on this path and then decide for yourself whether it works for you or not. 

    Haribol,

    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD
