 – Ilka, participant in satsang with Giten, February – April, 2019, in Stockholm

“It is fantastic how new people in satsang with Giten easily goes deep in the inner being, in the inner silence and emptiness. One satsang participant descibed this like she experienced the timeless within and another satsang participant described this like it was nobody in the rooom and it was completely silent. Satsang with Giten is a modern mystery school.”

– Deva Emanuel, participant in the 1-day satsang with Giten The Call of Compassion; The Art of Teaching – Working from Emptiness, 23 mars, 2019

 

THE ART OF LIFE & DEATH: Death & Ressurection during Eastern: Saturday 20 April and Sunday 21 April

Satsang with Giten is a celebration of being. This satsang weekend is about death and resurrection, death and rejoicement, which is an essential topic for an sincere seeker of truth.

Someone who goes deep into meditation will come to a point when he or she becomes afraid of disappearing – just as a drop takes the jump into the ocean.

Meditation is the art of dissolving. Meditation is a death. In meditation you will learn to die and to be reborn. Meditation is a Death, but it is also a rejoicement, a resurrection. It will be a totally new fresh and original being, it will be fresh eyes and it will be a totally new heart.

Then you will be a hollow bamboo. The existence will sing songs through you, it will dance dances through you. Existence will express itself, and you will be a hollow bamboo.

Meditation will make you a hollow bamboo, and that empty heart belongs to existence itself.

Swami Dhyan Giten has dedicated his life to teach the art of awareness and meditation. He conducts individual consultations, seminars and courses internationally. His quotes, articles and books have touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.

Since he began to meditate when he was 15 years old, he has dedicated his life to the study and exploration of the inner journey in order to move out of his own way, to be in a flow, and to discover the authentic inner being, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life.

In 1982, when Giten was 23 years old, he was directed by the Divine presence in a trance session with the American trance chancellor Lin David Martin: “You have listened to your intuition, to your true inner voice, more than most. You have been searching for the contact with the Spirit for a long time and now it is beginning to manifest on the outer plane. You have been gifted many times in previous embodiments and now everything will come rather easy for you. I want you to put your energy into the lives of others, because you can.”

A spiritual teacher, who have counselled thousands of people, told Giten in 1984: “You will dissolve into the silence. All the earlier enlightened Masters and all the small Deva’s are just here to help you to get enlightened.”

This satsang weekend is supported by silent satsang with Giten, which is a direct insight and experience of being.

Cost: 1500 SEK – 150 EUR for one weekend and 2500 SEK – 250 EUR for both weekends.

FLOWERING OF GODLINESS: 14 – 16 June

One who lives consciously attains the flowering of godliness. Living consciously is to live in a godly way.

Awareness is the master key of the whole journey of the inner journey. The essence of living consciously is awareness, which is the basis all religiousness. Awareness leads to glimpses of concscious moments when the mind stops and the dream of the mind is broken.

Godliness is a state of being. God

liness is the ultimate flowerig of the sudden that is hidden deep within ourselves.

As you approach closer to this state, you will become more och more godly. To become godly is the ultimate search and the deepest thirst of our heart. To surrender to godliness means to surrender to our highest potential.

Godliness is a desireless consciousness. It is to be in accord with the divine. It is to surrender and flow with the current of existence.

Godliness means to become satisfied with yourself as you are and feel that you don’t need anything more. I am enough in myself.

Godliness means absolute contentment in this moment. It is to be content with what is – a total acceptance of everything, a feeling of total gratitude.

This satsang weekend is supported by silent satsang with Giten, which is a direct insight and experience of being, of the divine.

During this satsang weekend with Giten, we will explore two keys to discover our being, the godliness within: 1. Flowering of Godliness: The drop & the ocean and 2. Meditation – The Art of Dissolving.

  1.  Flowering of Godliness: The drop & the ocean

Godliness, the divine, is fearsome. It is not really the divine that is fearsome, but it is your own fear.

You are afraid of the divine, and it is good to understand the reason for your fear, which this satsang with Giten will help you to understand.

It is like a drop is afraid before it falls into the ocean, because to fall into the ocean means to dissolve, to disappear.

It is natural for the drop to feel fear to meet the ocean, because it means its death and death creates fear.

But if the drop also realizes that there is another aspect: that dissolving into the ocean also means that the drop will disappear as a drop, and that it will become one with the vast, with the divine, with the eternal, with the deathless.

The drop would realize that its death is also the opening to godliness, to the divine.

The divine can either be the embodiment of fear or love, but it depends on our own viewpoint.

When we begin to seek the truth there comes a moment of disappearing into the silence.

A moment comes when we have to lose oneself, which makes us afraid. We are afraid of death, because it will efface you. Existence will snatch away your ego – that is the great death. Even after ordinary death, you will remain: only your body will die, but not your being, your soul.

The greatest death is to dissolve into godliness, into the divine.

But existence is not feared for those who are ready to lose themselves, who are ready to disappear. The existence is the embodiment of love.

Love means the readiness to disappear, to dissolve. Love means that the ego will dissolve.

For those who are ready to lose themselves, great love will arise in his or her life and bliss will shower on him or her.

One who is courageous at that moment is a true seeker.

You cannot know godliness until you lose yourself.

  1. Meditation – The Art of Dissolving

In music, poetry, dance and love, you disappear for a moment, and then you are back again, but poetry, music, dance and love are poor substitutes for meditation.

Someone who goes deep into meditation will come to a point when he or she becomes afraid of disappearing – just as a drop takes the jump into the ocean.

That is why a spiritual teacher is needed to give you trust. You need someone who has travelled the path and who can show you the way to take the quantum leap into silence. You need someone who can create courage, trust and understanding for you.

Cost: 1500 SEK – 150 EUR for one weekend and 2500 SEK – 250 EUR for both weekends.

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN

Giten experienced his first satori, his first glimpse of spiritual awakening, when he was 9 years old. This created a deep thirst and longing in his heart and being to return to this natural and effortless experience of being one with the Whole.

Swami Dhyan Giten has dedicated his life to teach the art of awareness and meditation. He conducts individual consultations, seminars and courses internationally. His quotes, articles and books have touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.

Since he began to meditate when he was 15 years old, he has dedicated his life to the study and exploration of the inner journey in order to move out of his own way, to be in a flow, and to discover the authentic inner being, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life.

He does not belong to any spiritual group or tradition; he is only interested to explore what it means to live with open eyes.

Giten’s first professional passion when he was 15 years old was to become an actor. After training as an actor, he worked as an actor until he was 23 years old. Working as actor taught him a lot about life and to emphatically understand the situation and life of other people, since acting is really a spiritual occupation. It taught him about spirituality, since working as an actor means to play a role totally, while at the same time as you know deep down that you are not the role you are playing. After working as an actor for a number of years, Giten began to understand that his early passion for theatre was really an unconscious search for a spiritual discipline. When he realized this, he began to feel a thirst to work with people in a more direct way in awareness and meditation.

In 1982, when Giten was 23 years old, he was directed by the Divine presence in a trance session with the American trance chancellor Lin David Martin: “You have listened to your intuition, to your true inner voice, more than most. You have been searching for the contact with the Spirit for a long time and now it is beginning to manifest on the outer plane. You have been gifted many times in previous embodiments and now everything will come rather easy for you. I want you to put your energy into the lives of others, because you can.”

A spiritual teacher, who has counseled thousands of people, told Giten in 1984: “You will dissolve into the silence. All the earlier enlightened Masters and all the small Deva’s are just here to help you to get enlightened.”

He is author of the best-selling book in Swedish “Meditationens Sång – Om meditation, relationer och andlig kreativitet” (Solrosens forlag, 2001, available from Internet book store Adlibris: www.adlibris.com), and “The Silent Whisperings of the Heart – An Introduction to Giten’s Approach to Life” (2008, available as paperback at Internet book store Lulu.com: www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten), Presence – Working from Within.

initiation-giten-zenleende-toshen

The Call of Compassion

The Pedagogics of the Buddhas

The Art of Teaching

– Working from emptiness

 

Saturday 23 March, 2019

10.00 – 18.00 in Stockholm 

 

“Satsang with Giten is heaven.” 

– Satyama Padma

“Through satsang with Giten, existence has provided

me with satsang so that I do not have to travel abroad.”

– Deva Emanuel

 

This is a loving invitation to Giten’s friends and sangha, who have participated in satsang with Giten before, to a whole day on the topic The Pedagogics of the Buddhas: The Call of Compassion – The Art of Teaching.

This day will consist of spiritual keys from The Upanishads, the ancient insight and wisdom of India, for how to be a spiritual teacher and to develop the art and skill for how to counsel and guide a person along the path of love and truth.

To be a spiritual teacher you need to develop the skills and the art to convey the truth to others. It is the most difficult art, because something has to be said about something that cannot be said in language, something has to be transmitted which is not transmitable.

To be a spiritual teacher needs a particular training, a particular training to convey, a particular training to help, a particular training to advice and counsel, a particular training to create new devices and methods, because every individual and age need something different. 

This day will be supported by silent satsang with Giten, which is a direct insight and experience of being. This experience can transform our entire being and consciousness.

Darshan is a meeting with Giten, where he can talk informally with individuals and small groups of seekers of truth. In darshan, Giten answers questions from seekers and gives initiation to seekers of truth.

 

During this day we will explore keys from The Upanishads: 

1. Silence: The state of godliness, of egolessness, of emptiness, of meditation. 

2. The teacher and student relationship. 

3. Shraddha: Loving trust. The spiritual journey of the student is a journey from trust and love to emptiness and godliness.

4. The student: The student has to be ready to die, to go beoynd the go, to become nobody, which is to become one with the whole.

4. The Language of Silence – The transmission of Light: Understanding the difference between the language of words and the language of silence.

5. Truth has to be revealed step by step: Understanding that the truth has to be revealed in many steps. It has to be revealed slowly step by step.

I was so afraid to lose the silence that I found in satsang in India, but I found the silence again in satsang with Giten. Earlier I did not think that enlightenment was possible, but now I Think that it is possible.”

– Satyama Padma, participant in satsang with Giten

“Please excuse my mistake. This satsang weekend has been & gone. Next one next year. Please let me know if you can. Cliffyxx Namaste.”

– Clifford Dent, trained in physical – cultural anthropology and developmental psychology at Oxford Brookes University, London, England

This satsang weekend will be supported by silent satsang with Giten, Satsang with Giten is a meeting in love, truth and silence. It is a direct insight and experience into being. It is a new way to be, which can transform your entire life.

The Upanishad’s is India’s unique insight into the mysteries of life and the Katho Upanishad is unique among the books of the Upanishads. The Katho Upanishad is the unique insight and wisdom of India, which is about the reality of death and the dimensions beyond death. A seeker who wants to understand life needs to go through the experience of death.

To learn to understand life is to learn the art of death. Somebody who is afraid of life is afraid of death since death is the deepest mystery of life. Only those that meet death consciously with a welcoming heart can really learn to know life.

During this satsang weekend, Giten will reveal the myths of death. He will share a vision of life and death that is both highly practical and esoteric.

Giten’s comments during this satsang weekend will create light around a theme that concerns us all and it willl help us to understand the secrets of life and immortality.

Giten experienced his first satori, his first glimpse of spiritual awakening, when he was 9 years old. This created a deep thirst and longing in his heart and being to return to this natural and effortless experience of being one with the Whole.

Swami Dhyan Giten has dedicated his life to teach the art of awareness and meditation. He conducts individual consultations, seminars and courses internationally. His quotes, articles and books have touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.

Since he began to meditate when he was 15 years old, he has dedicated his life to the study and exploration of the inner journey in order to move out of his own way, to be in a flow, and to discover the authentic inner being, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life.

He does not belong to any spiritual group or tradition; he is only interested to explore what it means to live with open eyes.

Giten’s first professional passion when he was 15 years old was to become an actor. After training as an actor, he worked as an actor until he was 23 years old. Working as actor taught him a lot about life and to emphatically understand the situation and life of other people, since acting is really a spiritual occupation. It taught him about spirituality, since working as an actor means to play a role totally, while at the same time as you know deep down that you are not the role you are playing. After working as an actor for a number of years, Giten began to understand that his early passion for theatre was really an unconscious search for a spiritual discipline. When he realized this, he began to feel a thirst to work with people in a more direct way in awareness and meditation.

In 1982, when Giten was 23 years old, he was directed by the Divine presence in a trance session with the American trance chancellor Lin David Martin: “You have listened to your intuition, to your true inner voice, more than most. You have been searching for the contact with the Spirit for a long time and now it is beginning to manifest on the outer plane. You have been gifted many times in previous embodiments and now everything will come rather easy for you. I want you to put your energy into the lives of others, because you can.”

He is author of the best-selling book in Swedish “Meditationens Sång – Om meditation, relationer och andlig kreativitet” (Solrosens forlag, 2001, available from Internet book store Adlibris: www.adlibris.com), and “The Silent Whisperings of the Heart – An Introduction to Giten’s Approach to Life” (2008, available as paperback at Internet book store Lulu.com:www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten), Presence – Working from Within. The Psychology of Being (2011, available as paperback at Internet book store Lulu:www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten) and “The Language of Silence – From Darkness to Light” (available in paperback at Lulu.com: www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten). His latest book has just been published, “Silence is the Way: The Teachings of Buddha” (available at Lulu: www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten)

THE SILENT REVOLUTION OF THE HEART

– The Challenge for the 21st Century

– From Fear to Love,
from Darkness to Light and
from Separation to Wholeness


The challenge for the 21st century is The Silent Revolution of the Heart. It is not a revolution within an organization or a land in the traditional sense with violence, madness and bloodshed. It is a revolution in human consciousness.

The Silent Revolution of the Heart is an inner revolution from fear to love, from darkness to light and from separation to wholeness.
In society today there exists a deep split between the inner and outer world, between intellect and intuition, between male and female qualities, between rest and activity and between outer knowledge and inner wisdom. There is a rapid technological development in the society, but we seem to forget the most important factor: our self.

Humanity as a whole is in-between power and the heart in its psychological and spiritual development process towards spiritual maturity. The next step for humanity as a whole is to realize that real power is love and compassion.

The power chakra is the centre of the ego, the separated sense of “I”. The power chakra is about control, power and dominance over other people. A person who is on the development level of the power chakra wants to change other people, but he does not want to change himself.

Ordinary relationships are often power relationships, which is a fight and struggle between the partners’s needs and mine. Often the partner in a power relationship has the same strength to develop the power chakra.

The society is created out of the ego, and the need of the ego to create a hierarchy with power, status, respect, position, norms, roles and conformity. Many people in the West live in the power chakra, and are occupied with competing with others, to prove that they are somebody important, and finding their place in the hierarchy.

During the 20th Century has the psychological development level of humanity been on the awareness level of the power chakra. The focus of humanity has been on power, dominance, position, money and control over energy resources. We are technologically developed and this technology governs the development of the society, but this technology is at the same time destroying the earth. Energy resources are also a distinguishing theme in the power balance between countries.

Acting aggressively has its roots in fear, judgments and insecurity. Violence and aggressiveness is about control and dominance over another person. To judge and to be loving is two sides of the same coin. Judgments about another person are really about yourself. When we stop judging others and ourselves, our hearts opens. The heart is a healer that transforms fear to love, judgments to acceptance and separation to wholeness. The heart heals.

The 21st century means an inner awakening. It means a time to grow up. Many people talk about spirituality, meditation and inner development but it does not seem to change their lives. Our spiritual development depends on our commitment to our own development. We can use our free will to take on the challenge of life to grow or we can choose not to grow. This is the freedom that life gives us and it our own responsibility, but it seems that it is few people that accept life’s challenge to grow.

The 21st century represents a choice between the separation of ego and the vision of the heart. The silent revolution of the heart is a shift in human consciousness from the short-sighted perspective of the ego of “me” and “mine” to the focus of the heart on love and the needs of the other. It is a shift in consciousness from the short-sighted separation of the ego to the vision of the heart.

When we follow the way of the ego, the path of endless desires, it leads to struggle, conflict, exhaustion and separation from the Whole. The way of the heart is about learning to listen to our heart, to our inner source of love, joy, truth and wisdom. It is to be in a deep harmony with Existence.

When our heart is closed it creates an isolated and lonely feeling together with the attitude: “Nobody loves me”, “nobody cares about me” and “life is a struggle”, which makes us not see the love that is all around us.

A silent revolution of the heart happens when we start to care about another person, and it is a joy to put the needs of the other person before our own needs. It is on the awareness level of the heart that we begin to develop the sensitivity and awareness that makes us care about another person. The heart operates from the premises: I am responsible and only love works.

Love is to eat pizza with our beloved partner even though we hate pizza.

Our heart is the door to unconditional love both for ourselves and others. Our heart is really always open, but our judgments about ourselves and others keep it closed. When we stop judging ourselves and others, our heart begins to open. The way to healing is to learn to love and accept ourselves unconditionally. It means to embrace both our positive and negative sides with love and understanding. It means to learn to love everything that we find within ourselves.

We have been taught to love others, but not to love ourselves. But how can we love others without loving ourselves? The ABC of love is that we first need to learn to love ourselves before we can love anybody else.

Trust is a prerequisite for love. Without trust, love is without depth. It is like a plastic flower, instead of an alive, fresh and fragrant rose. Even if some people will let us down and make us sad and disappointed, it is no reason to let it undermine our basic trust in life. It is better to allow some people to let us down than not allow our basic trust in life to develop. Many people are so sleeping and unconscious that they really do not know what they are doing. They make us disappointed even if they do not really mean to. Even if we feel hurt, disillusioned and disappointed with people, see if you can give them love and understanding. A criterion for spiritual growth is that we begin to give love, rather than needing love.

Exactly as the rhythm of in-breathes and out-breathes of the physical body, the heart has also two poles: to give love and to receive love. Certain people are easier to give love to and other people are easier to be open to receive love. But to allow our love to become whole, we need to learn both to give love and to receive love.

Animals are great teachers in friendship and unconditional love. One of my course participants commented in a course, “I prefer animals before people, because animals cannot hurt me in the same way that people can. I myself still find it difficult to really trust that I am loved as I am. Even if I am aware about this, there is still a small part of myself that wants to contract, and which does not really trust that I am loved as I am and that life takes care of me. I find it easier to be present for others than to allow others to be present for me.”

Love and fear are two sides of the same coin. In the absence of love fear arises. In the light of love fear disappears, like when you turn the light on in a dark room. Fear is a contraction of our life energy together with an attitude of loneliness and isolation. Love creates an expansion of our life energy together with a feeling of love, joy and belongingness.

Love is the strongest power there is. There is no stronger force than love. Love is pure magic. Love transforms people without really doing anything. The sheer presence of love transforms people. There is nothing more holy than love, since love makes people whole.

Love accepts a person as he is. Love creates the freedom, which allows a person to be himself. Love creates the relaxation, which allows a person to relax into his inner being, into his authentic self. Love allows us to appreciate the beautiful being that we already are. Love allows a person to discover his true individuality.

Love is not an exclusive relationship with another person; love is a quality of our inner being. It is to discover the source of love deep within ourselves, which is our true nature.

In the depth of our heart, we already know that we are perfect as we are. In the depth of our inner being, we already know that life is perfect as it is.

It is on the awareness level of the heart that we begin to understand that we are not separate from life. We begin to understand that we are not small separate islands in a large ocean, but that life is one and that we are all small parts of the same whole. It is on the awareness level of the heart that we begin to understand what is important and meaningful in life. We begin to understand that life is about sharing, rather than hoarding, that life is about giving, rather than taking.

It is when we open our heart that we discover a sense of unity in love with other people, with the trees, with nature, with the sea and with the blue sky.

This is the silent revolution of the heart.

The human heart is the solution to the problems of the world.

The human heart contains all the answers.

The human heart has the capacity to expand and embrace the whole earth.
