There is an ancient Indian tradition which relates to knowledge. It goes by guru-shishya parampara.
Guru-shishya, in Sanskrit are two separate words that translates into teacher-student. Paramapara is tradition.
This learning method needs a good teacher and an attentive student. You didn’t need bark, papyrus, paper, copper plates or stone tablets to get educated in Vedic India. The guru recites the mantras from his memory, the student hears it carefully and after sufficient practice repeats back.
