The ideal counts

People worry that Gandhi was not Gandhian enough, or that Vinoba was not perfect.

The ideas and ideals take superiority over the person who is as human as you or I. Human beings are imperfect, and lifetimes are needed to strive towards the perfection that we get a glimpse of in rare moments of revelation.

When a person raises the bar, we would do well to focus on the bar, and on ourselves.
