The kings, emperors and affluent sections of society willingly gave donations in the form of land, animals, grains, clothes, utensils, and money to these gurukuls. The students begged alms from society to meet the day to day needs of the gurukuls. The third source of income of the gurukuls was guru dakshina. On the completion of education, students paid guru dakshina according to individual volition which could be land, animals, grains , and clothes.
