The taste of pudding is in eating

the taste of pudding

Question: Throughout the ages-and certainly in today’s world-there are always people who claim to be enlightened-who claim to speak the Truth. How does an unenlightened person like myself know when another person is, in fact, enlightened-and is therefore speaking a truth worth following?

Maharishi Mahesh: The answer is: the taste of pudding is in eating. Somebody is eating the pudding, he says “how nice”, and “so beautiful” and all that. How do I know that he’s saying right? I have to eat the pudding!

There is no way anyone without experiencing the reality to judge whether another man is saying right or wrong. The taste of pudding is in eating.
