A Guru had an Ashram in a forest usually far away from the materialistic life of a city. People sent their wards for study and they would sit facing the Guru and listen to his teachings. Guru always sat on an elevated seat befitting his higher status in learning. Knowledge like water must flow from higher to lower levels.
The following is the first Shlok from Upanishad and beautifully explains the origin of the universe.
Shanti Paath – the opening Shlok
Om Poorna mada Poorna Midam Poornaat Poorn Mudach yate
Poornasya Poorn maa daye poorn meva vashishyate
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.
He (unmanifested Param Bramha energy) is full and complete and this creation (his manifestation) is also full and complete. Fullness emanates from fullness, and after having removed fullness from fullness what remains is also fullness. May there be peace in mind, body and spirit.
It can also be translated slightly differently,
(unmanifested Param Bramha energy) is full and complete and this creation (its manifestation) is also full and complete. At the time of the dissolution of this creation into parent energy only Param Bramha remains. May there be peace in mind, body and spirit.
