It is easy to set rules of action and conduct for others to follow. There are many who can do this. But such prescriptions have little weight. They are nothing but only words. Nobody takes them seriously unless the teacher himself practices them in his own life. If his own conduct differs from his rules, he mocks at his precepts himself. People can see through such hypocrisy sooner or later.
Precepts fall on deaf ears where as examples compel attention. So a little example is worth a lot. Its worth, import and validity cannot be denied. It cannot be argued away or wiped out of existence. It is a living model for everyone to pattern his own conduct on. It speaks for itself and needs no help from words. So the person who sets noble examples is sure to be followed.
Title : Teach and Preach What you follow Self
Precis : Hypocrisy sooner or later comes to light. So one should only teach and preach what you follow relf. Otherwise neither you will set examples nor will you have followers.
