Re: Searching For The Term...

Otomo is not really correct unless the question is about the person who accompanies a teacher on a trip. O is an honorific. It does not mean great. Tomo is attendant. Friend is a different word.

Deshi or uchi deshi could be possible as in Matthew's post.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
