# Guru and Shishya: A unique coordinate

### Abstract

Ayurveda holds high the unique Guru and Shishya relationship. The entire treatise is written as the teachings of Guru to his disciple. This relationship is aimed at transforming the Shishya until he becomes alike the Guru. Author of Charaka Samhitha enumerates the qualities of a disciple eligible to learn the science and also who should be chosen as a Guru in Vimana-Sthana. In many other contexts too author has enumerated the qualities of Agnivesha, the best among his disciple along with the Ultimate Guru Punarvasu Atreaya. All read together gives us the understanding of what should be the conduct, discipline, trust and humility of a disciple towards his teacher and also about the unique coordinate between Guru and Shishya.
