Guru refers to the 'teacher' or the 'master'.

Kul refers to his 'domain'.

Gurukul is an ancient Indian concept of education wherein the participant imbibed knowledge by residing with his teacher/guru as a part of his 'family'.

India has been known as the Land of Gurus and Gurukuls.
The Gurukul was where the students resided together as equals, irrespective of their social standing. The Guru was more than merely a teacher. He was a father, a guide and a role model for all the students.

The students of the Gurukul lived a life of tutelage and obedience. They would leave their homes and their loved ones and come and live at the Gurukul for years to learn the lessons of life from their guru.
