Instead, he faithfully or blindly follows an instructor, the authority figure, and his instructor's imposed pattern.

However, what is nurtured is the dependent mind rather than independent inquiry, which is so essential to genuine understanding. So through daily conditioning a student will probably be skilled according to a pattern, however, he will not come to understand himself.
