SILENCE IS THE WAY

The Teachings of Buddha

Silence is the invisible door to God.”  

Swami Dhyan Giten

3. Only love can dispel hate 

From Satsang with Giten on Buddha,November 12, 2015, in Stockholm

 

“Satsang weekend with Giten was like coming home. I went into samadhi three times during the satsang weekend – and I also got a map and an understanding for how to go into samadhi again.”

– Satyama Padma, participant in Satsang weekend with Giten, December 9-11, 2016, in Stockholm 

 

Buddha says: 

SPEAK OR ACT WITH AN IMPURE MIND

AND TROUBLE WILL FOLLOW YOU

AS THE WHEEL FOLLOWS THE OX THAT DRIVES THE CART 

 

When Buddha uses the concept “impure mind”, he means mind. 

Mind is impure, and no-mind is pure. 

SPEAK OR ACT WITH AN IMPURE MIND means to speak or act from the mind. 

AND TROUBLE WILL FOLLOW YOU means that misery and suffering is the result of the mind, because the mind means unawareness.

 Mind will bring trouble and suffering as certain AS THE WHEEL FOLLOWS THE OX THAT DRIVES THE CART.

 

WE ARE WHAT WE THINK

ALL THAT WE ARE ARISES WITH OUR THOUGHTS

SPEAK OR ACT WITH A PURE MIND

AND HAPPINESS WILL FOLLOW YOU

AS YOUR SHADOW, UNSHAKABLE

 

When Buddha says “pure mind”, he means no-mind, awareness.

Happiness will follow you if you have a pure mind or no-mind. 

Suffering is a result of mind, of unawareness, happiness is a result of no-mind, of awareness. 

Happiness cannot be searched for directly, happiness can only be found if you do not search it directly.  

On the contrary, you have to search for awareness.  

When awareness comes, happiness comes of its own accord.

 

“LOOK HOW HE ABUSED ME AND BEAT ME,

HOW HE THREW ME DOWN AND ROBBED ME”

LIVE WITH SUCH THOUGHTS AND YOU LIVE IN HATE

 

“LOOK HOW HE ABUSED ME AND BEAT ME

HOW HE THREW ME DOWN AND ROBBED ME”

ABANDON SUCH THOUGHTS AND LIVE IN LOVE

 

Fear and hate exists in the past and the future, love exists in the moment, in the here and now. 

Love exists in the present moment. 

Fear and hate has a reference in the past. 

Somebody has abused you in the past, and you are carrying it like a wound. 

Fear and hate is a limitation. If you hate somebody, you also create a hate in the heart of that person towards you. 

The world lives in fear, hate, destructiveness and violence. 

Hate creates hell on earth, love creates a paradise on earth. 

True love comes from your inner being. 

It is spontaneously welling up of joy, which has nothing to do with the past or the future. 

True love is in the moment.

 

IN THIS WORLD

HATE NEVER YET DISPELLED HATE

ONLY LOVE DISPELS HATE

THIS IS THE LAW

ANCIENT AND INEXHAUSTIBLE 

 

Hate never dispels hate, darkness cannot dispel darkness. 

Only love can dispel hate. 

The eternal law is that only love dispels hate, only light dispels darkness. 

Bring light into a room and the darkness disappears by itself. 

How can you bring light into your own being?  

Through becoming silent, aware, awake and conscious. 

 That is how to bring the light in. 

The moment you are aware and awake, hate will not be found. 

It is not possible to hate somebody with awareness. 

You can only hate somebody in unawareness. 

When you are conscious, hate disappears, when you are not conscious, then hate is there.  

Love and hate, light and darkness, cannot exist together, because hate is the absence of love, darkness is the absence of light. 

 

YOU TOO SHALL PASS AWAY

KNOWING THIS, HOW CAN YOU QUARREL 

 

We waste our life in quarreling, in conflict, when life is so short. 

Use your whole energy for awareness and meditation. 

Then you can become a light. 

Meditation will make you awake, because you will discover your inner being. 

Meditation brings an awakening. 

For the first time you will feel the truth of your own being.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

COMMENT FROM SATSANG WITH GITEN, JANUARY 19, 2017, IN STOCKHOLM

Inituation, Toshen

COMMENT FROM SATSANG WITH GITEN, JANUARY 19, 2017, IN STOCKHOLM

“Giten’s work is beautiful.”

 Samadhi is like dying. The fear that I experienced in the beginning in satsang with Giten when I went into samadhi, when I disappeared into the silence, has now disappeared totally. 

Before I started to attend satsang with Giten, I did not think that enlightenment was possible, but now I feel that it is possible.”

– Satyama Padma, participant in satsang with Giten

CALL OF THE OCEAN
1-Day Satsang Day with Giten
Saturday, April 15, 2017
“The first time that I meet Giten, it felt mystic and exciting.”

 – Deva Emanuel, musician, student to Giten since 7 years

“Satsang weekend with Giten was like coming home. I went into samadhi three times during the satsang weekend – and I also got a map and an understanding for how to go into samadhi again.”

– Satyama Padma, participant in Satsang weekend with Giten, December 9-11, 2016, in Stockholm
 
 
“Hallelujah! The 1-day Satsang with Giten was
fantastic. Magic. I left the Satsang, so in love with life.
Happiness. I only feel love.
 
Satsang with Giten is a rich and warm emptiness. I want to give Giten all love and my warmest thank you. Giten and the Satsang has given me so much. I have never been so close to happiness before. In many moment, life has become complete. I am very happy that the Satsang in continuing in April.”
 
-Prem Mukta, participant in Giten’s Satsang Intensive, February 15, in Stockholm

 

“The silent Satsang yesterday felt strong. Almost immediately when we sat down in silent Satsang, I was filled with an energy so strong that it felt like I was surrounded by an almost physical energy field. 

I almost felt like I was going to levitate, like the energy was so compact that I could not sit still on the floor. It was like the Satsang danced, it was living its own life. It felt ancient, powerful and beyond control.And in the middle of everything, a loud and wild laughter grow, which I had to fight to keep back. It felt like I would never stop laughing if I began. 

When Giten sounded the bell that the Satsang was over, I had to concentrate to come back in one piece, remind the body of the frame, and remind the head of the room, of the here and now. 

After a while, it worked, and the effect was that I felt happy, calm and full of love after Satsang. 

– Prem Mukta, Stockholm

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN, spiritual teacher and author, has more than 30 years of experience in individual counseling and in teaching awareness and meditation. He is trained in both modern psychology and in classic Eastern methods for 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 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.” 

Participants in satsang with Giten have commented:

 “I have never felt such a strong process. I could never have imagined that the combination of ayurveda and satsang with Giten could start such a strong physical and spiritual process.” 

– Padma, participant in satsang with Giten 

“It was fantastic wonderful to be in Giten’s presence.”

– Charlotte Westh Kujawa, Los Angeles and Malmoe, participant in satsang with Giten, November 12, 2015, in Stockholm.  

“When I participated in satsang with Giten for the first time, I felt that I had come to the right place. I felt that I had come home. I never thought that a 2-hour satsang could go so deep. The love that I found within myself during satsang with Giten just continued to flow a week after the satsang.”
 –Iiris, special education teacher for autistic children and participant in satsang with Moji and Eckhart Tolle 

This satsang day is Giten’s invitation to sincere seekers after love, truth and freedom, who wants to discover their own authentic inner being, the inner silence and emptiness, the inner source of love and truth, the capacity to surrender to life, the call of the ocean. 

Satsang with Giten is a supportive and loving space, where Giten answers and guides sincere seekers of  love, truth and freedom into the direct experience and realization of being.  

Giten will also talk about the steps to enlightenment and  Ayurvedic and yogic spirituality and self-realization to bring light to our spiritual path. Ayurveda and yoga are the two ancient spiritual systems, who offer the wisdom of enlightened masters of India. 

This satsang day offers the opportunity for sincere seekers of love and truth to be immersed in the energy field of Satsang – of love, meditation and prayer, and without the usual demands, pressures and distractions of daily life and social interaction. Whilst silence means to keep quiet externally and refrain from contact with those around us, it also means to introvert our attention and rest it in being, in the heart.

Although this may initially bring some resistance, when one persists beyond this, the mind is absorbed into presence. 

This satsang day has the power to change your life.
