Chosen

Disciple, of course, can, will, must choose his teacher. Teacher, when he's chosen should accept him as a disciple. Sometimes teacher may recommended some other teacher for disciple. Or else, you know, human relationship will not be perfect. So if a teacher think, think his friend is maybe more perfect teacher for him, he may recommend him as a teacher.
