Becoming a sensei

Shokai has a rare look at the inside of somebody at the initiation ceremony.

Good thing it didn't go like this:

Roshi: Sensei, why did you join my beloved lineage?
Sensei: Sir, to save all sentient beings, sir!
Roshi: So you're a bodhisattva!
Sensei: Sir, yes sir!
Roshi: Then let me see your bodhisattva face!
Sensei: [nervously] Sir?
Roshi: You got a bodhisattva face! ARRRRRRRRRGH! That's a bodhisattva face, let me see your bodhisattva face!
Sensei: Ahhhh!
Roshi: Bullshit, you didn't convince me, let me see your REAL bodhisattva face!
Sensei: Ahhhhhh!
Roshi: You still don't scare me! Work on it!
Sensei: Sir, yes sir!
