Mentor & Disciple

Disciples understand the greatness of the mentor only to the extent that they themselves grow.

I think that young people should have good seniors and conscientious teachers in whatever endeavor they pursue. This invisible human-to-human bond can be defined as the mentor-disciple or teacher-student relationship.

One who refuses to seek the advice of others will eventually go astray. A mentor helps you to perceive your own weaknesses and confront them with courage. The bond between mentor and protege enables us to stay true to our chosen path until the very end.

The relationship between mentor and disciple can be likened to that between needle and thread. The mentor is the needle and the disciple is the thread. When sewing, the needle leads the way through the cloth, but in the end it is unnecessary and it is the thread which remains that has value.
