Abstract: The Ancient Indian education system was mainly residential that was Gurukula system of education. Guru used to teach all the skills and knowledge to his student. He used to except the some unspoken obligations and behavior from his students as of his own son’s/daughter’s behavior. Both the Guru and student used live together and learn together. After the completion of the course students used to pay honorarium Guru Dakshina. Guru used to put his students in many difficult situations and ask him to act and respond.

Guru used to except good behavior, feeling of respect, feeling of importance, attention, love, care and loyal relation with his student throughout the life. On other hand student used to see his hero in his master, he should be skillful, intelligent, knowledgeable, should give love, affection, no partiality and should give blessings or boon to the students Guru was everything to him. The relation was like father and son/daughter and the education was perfect. There was no financial relationship between them. Student used to except Guru should solve their all problems and make them tension free and give the remedial solutions for their problems in life.
