Guru Daksina

yascadharmena vai bruyadyascadharmena prcchati |
tayoranyatarah praiti vidvesam cadhigacchati ||

He who bestows instructions but do not receive daksina, and he who receives instructions without giving daksina, in both cases either of them dies and bitter enmity is created between them.

 

– Mahabharata, Adi Parva, Pausya Parva 93
