Relation Between The Guru And The Disciple
�There shall be nothing that thou outhtest not do at my behest.
Thou shalt dedicate thyself to me and regard me as thy chief. Thou shalt be subject to me and conduct thyself for ever for my welfare and pleasure.��
�Thou shalt stay, move about, lay thyself down, be seated, take thy meals and prosecute thy studies wholly at my bidding".
�Thou shalt not go without my permission, nor without honour�ing thy master, nor without finishing your studies".
�Approaching such a teacher with a view to winning his favour, one should wait on him vigilantly as on the sacrificial fire, as on a god, as on the king, as on the father and as on one�s own patron.�
Moreover the teacher addresses the pupil as vatsa etc. and the pupil in turn calls the Guru �Bhagavan�. Thus adjectives used for the teacher and the pupil in the texts are quite significant of the mutual relation of love and respect.
