Gurukul, a Sanskrit word conjoined by two other words - “guru” meaning “teacher” or “master”,
and “kul” meaning “domain” - is in India, a type
of school, residential in nature, with “shishyas” or “students” living
in proximity to the guru. The shishya who enters Gurukul is imparted knowledge
in all aspects. A shishya’s life undergoes a transformational change
by the time he walks out of a Gurukul.
The concept of Guru is unique to Indian Vedic culture and this is one
of the priceless gifts to this world along with Vedic teaching.
