Those who lead the way must set a good example for their followers. Just as they are imitated in their virtues and good morals so do their bad and improper actions and attitudes leave indelible marks upon those who follow them.
One who represents any stage of the truth must try to embody it with honesty trustworthiness consciousness of duty a high degree of perception awareness of circumstances far-sightedness and absolute chastity.
