Those of his followers who expect him to behave with impeccable propriety and are ready to leave and follow someone else if he does not, will either be victims of, or gainers by, their own judgement. If the teacher is really unified with his Overself, any judging of him done by external standards will be only partly applicable. There is a point where neither his character nor his motives can be correctly measured by such standards, and beyond which they may be quite misleading.
