About a leader

“यद्यदाचरति  श्रेष्टसतत्तदेवेतरो  जनः
स  यत्प्रमाणं  कुरुते  लोकस्तदनुवर्तते |” (भगवद  गीता :३ :२१ )

Whatever a great man does, that other men also do (imitate), whatever he sets up as the standard, that the world (people) follows. (Bhagavad Gita:3:21)

“Man is essentially an imitating animal. This is a psychological truth. The moral rejuvenation of a society in any period of history can take place only because of the example set up by the leaders of that nation. Students can be disciplined only when teachers are well behaved. The minor officials cannot be kind and honest when the rulers of the country are corrupt tyrants. Children’s behavior depends upon the standard of purity and culture of their parents.”(Swami Chinmayananda)
