I don’t like the word ‘follower’ or ‘disciple’. Guru simply means teacher, so if you have the need for a teacher, a guru, why don’t you call yourself student? Rather than being a follower who follows blindly like a sheep, you should be a student, eager to learn more, enthusiastic for getting more knowledge and experience.
