Locating righteous leaders is a formidable challenge.

If such a search is an academic exercise, or if it is a playful though perhaps childish game of ranking different contenders, perhaps our time is better invested in bona fide spiritual pursuits. But if the goal of the endeavor is to seek and identify teachers, mentors, guides or role models, the quest may be of paramount importance for spiritual growth.
