57. The Master said, “It is the mind-dharma of practitioners and the virtue of leaders to make their energies harmonious first, before going on to edify others widely. Leaders, by primarily concealing others’ faults and revealing their good points, should forgive with benevolence when confronted with violence, correct with truthfulness when faced with wile, and respond with justice and friendliness when others try to exert their authority or act out of self-interest. They should be able to edify widely all beings under heaven with their harmony of mind and harmony of energy.”
