One of our other correspondents has replied in a similar vein.
While this may be true, I believe Ram in his original post is
asking a more psychological question. If I may rephrase it as
follows: "I know that I should believe in Bhagavan and the
shastras, and Bhagavan's messengers such as the acharyas. But
my mind continues to wander and speculate about all sorts of
things. What am I to do?"

You see, merely stating that the acharya's words are to be
followed begs the question.

How would one answer Ram?
