    Voices of Faith: Buddha’s ‘Ten Royal Qualities’ are relevant for today’s leaders

    More than 2,000 years ago, the Buddha established a set of guidelines for kings. They are known as the “Ten Royal Qualities.” Although these rules were designed for kings and political leaders, they are just as relevant for any type of leader today. The 10 qualities are:

    ▪ Charity — Willingness to sacrifice one’s interest for the good of the people.

    ▪ Morality — Maintaining a high moral order in one’s personal conduct.

    ▪ Altruism — Generosity toward people, avoiding selfishness.

    ▪ Honesty — Fulfilling one’s duties with loyalty and integrity.

    ▪ Gentleness — Being kind and gentle, never arrogant.

    ▪ Self-control — Performing one’s duties with dispassion.

    ▪ Non-anger — Remaining calm in the midst of confusion.

    ▪ Nonviolence — Being nonviolent, not persecuting the people.

    ▪ Forbearance — Practicing patience in one’s duties.

    ▪ Uprightness — Respecting public opinion, promoting harmony.
