Why Philosopher - Statesmen?
"Unless philosophers become kings and kings take to the power and spirit of Philosophy, unless Wisdom and political leadership meet in one man - cities shall never cease from ill nor the human race - Plato, Republic.
Because Philosopher - Statesmen are instruments of the Zeit-Geist, of the Kala Purusha, whose actions are in conformity with Universal Will.
The Lord blessed King Dhruva thus
Thou shalt have
Powers both eternal and temporal
Rajyam chiram samanubhooya
Padam hi nivritti heenam.
