translation

i get when sensei introduces himself/herself to new students as e.g. Sensei John

(to english speakers putting sensei at end is like saying I am Thompson Mrs. isn't it?)

But introducing oneself as Sensei is just plain ego IMHO. Haven't run into that yet. It would be like those people who refer to themselves in third person.

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.
