A leader is one who supports and glues everyone together, so that everyone can encourage and support one another.  The role of a leader is to connect undisciplined people with disciplined ones so that they can learn how to correctly conduct and discipline themselves.  It is to connect those people that have been injured with those that can help administer the correct medicine of the “Lotus Sutra”.  This medicine is to help those without direction gain direction through the teachings of the Lotus Sutra and walk with correct friends on the path.  A leader should be a person who is dedicated to his own direction and is able to exemplify a peaceful environment helping practitioners to continue to walk on the path of the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren Shu Buddhism.
