Subhashitam – 3
आचार्यात् पादमादत्ते पादं शिष्य स्वमेधया |
पादं सब्रह्मचारिभ्य: पादं काल क्रमेण च ||
ācāryāt pādamādatte pādaṁ śiṣya svamedhayā
pādaṁ sabrahmacāribhyah pādaṁ kāla krameṇa ca
One gains ¼ of the knowledge from the Acharya (the teacher), ¼ from his own self-study and intellect, ¼ from his classmates and the remaining ¼ is gained as a person becomes matured as time passes.
