We accept the path established by our mahajanas as our examples to follow. By remembering them, whatever difficulties we have to undergo become easier. In comparison to them, our austerities are small. We make ourselves think that they are just so big, so difficult, impossible to overcome. "How can I ever do it? This is too much." But by remembering those who made good decisions and who showed by their example how they crossed the ocean of material existence and went back home, back to Godhead, we get strength, courage, determination and enthusiasm. It makes it easier. That's how it becomes the easy path.
