Gautama Buddha's exemplary and correct vision


The whole character of Buddha is exemplary. If he is a true leader, he should be exemplary. His followers are led by the leader. Lord Buddha, who engaged the first sixty arahath in the work of dharma mission, went to Uruvel Danauva a to spread the dharma, setting an example for the followers.

Some leaders engage their followers in certain activities, but they do not engage in it themselves. There are instances throughout the Buddha's character where the Lord Buddha gave advice to others and he also acted in that advice.

It is also exemplary that the Buddha, who criticized the casteism taught by the Brahmins, appreciated the equality of individuals and gave the opportunity to settle down to the people of all four castes. 

Being born in a Kshatriya caste, despite the ability to eat sweet food, walking on the highway, giving alms only during the day, sometimes wearing earthen robes, almsgiving etc. are examples of exemplary leadership characteristics of Lord Buddha.

Correct vision 

A person's vision is the basis of his activities. Each of us must have a correct vision. Then it will be easy to achieve the goals. Even before attaining enlightenment, the Buddha had a correct vision. That is to free the suffering beings who have become enlightened.

Lord Buddha dedicated his entire life with the intention of freeing the suffering people from it and giving them nirvanabodha. 

As the questions asked by Malunkayaputta Theranuvan were not relevant to get rid of suffering, they were put aside because there was a correct vision. An institution should function according to a vision. Like school, any institution can be effective only if it operates with the right vision.
