1. How to know if we are pleasing Krishna

    Actually, the purpose of our life is to please Krsna. That is the business of the older children, to serve the father. So there is a test for knowing if I am pleasing Krsna: If He reveals Himself to me, if I see Krsna, then I know I am pleasing Krsna. And another test is if my spiritual master is pleased by my service then I know that I am pleasing Krsna. It is very simple, because if I am following the prescribed regulative principles of my spiritual master, then without doubt I am pleasing Him.
