SATSANG WITH GITEN:

BLESSINGS FROM INDIA

Spiritual ‘Satsangs’ are highly glorified, throughout the spiritual world, and also considered as inevitable, for sincere seekers.

I fervently pray God, for grand success of glorious ‘satsang’, with Rev. Swami Dhyan Giten. The participants, I feel, are really lucky.

Love Yourself &  Watch

From satsang with Giten,

29 August, 2019, in Stockholm

This is one of the most significant teachings of Buddha.

Love yourself and watch are Buddha’s two steps of meditation.

Just as food is nourishment for the body; love is nourishment for the soul. Without nourishment for the soul, the body becomes weak. Without nourishment of love, the soul becomes weak.

To make you spiritually weak, all the religious traditions have taught you to love others, but don’t love yourself.

All the cultures and civilizations has taught you not to love yourself, because if a man cannot love himself he cannot love anybody else either.

And no state, church and vested interests has ever wanted you to love yourself, because love give you a strong soul, so that nobody can exploit, manipulate and control you.

You have been made afraid of being in love with yourself, which is the first step of love.

A man who loves himself respects himself.

And a man who loves and respects himself loves and respects others.

He becomes aware that we are not different: we are one.

In the foundation, we are part of one nature.

A man who loves himself starts overflowing, so that his love starts reaching others.

You love other people, you love animals, flowers and trees.

Love makes you a spiritual force.

Love yourself, says Buddha, this can transform the whole world.

Love begins with yourself, and then it can spread.

Love yourself, says Buddha, and then he adds, and watch.

That is Buddha’s word for meditation.

The first step is to love yourself, and the second step is to watch.

Love is the first step to know yourself.

If you do not love yourself, you will never know yourself.

Love your body, love your mind and love your soul.

Watching is meditation. It is Buddha’s name for meditation. He says: Be aware, be alert and be conscious.

The first step in meditation is to love yourself, to respect and accept yourself as you are.

The second step in meditation is to watch – watch when you take a walk, watch when you eat and watch when you spend time with friends.

– Swami Dhyan Giten

QUOTES FROM GITEN DURING SATSANG WEEKEND 

15-17 NOVEMBER, 2019, IN STOCKHOLM

BE A LIGHT TO YOURSELF

“The last words of Buddha were: Be a light to yourself. You are born with a light within you. You are enough to yourself. You are sufficient to yourself. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you.

Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of your own consciousness. This message of Buddha functions as a reminder to the seeker of truth – on the path to enlightenment.” 

INTUITION, THE INNER GUIDE, THE MASTER WITHIN

Our intuition is the inner teacher,

The old Indian scriptures say that the outer spiritual teacher is helpful to find your own intuition, your own inner teacher. 

BLISS

Happiness is the meaning and goal of life.

LOVE

The divine way is to remain true to love.

Remain true to love and remain true to life.

Love and meditation are one of the most essential messages. Love and meditation should go hand in hand.

Only two meditators can live together in love. 

EGOLESSNESS

“The truth is that egolessness is the door to bliss.

The moment you are egoless, you are nothing, you become a door to the divine.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

1500:-

“Giten is real. Authentic on his way and self. A loving man, who knows the science of truth, love and life.

– Prem Pathik, India

 

The Free Academy and Devadas, spiritual leader for Ljusbacken (The Hill of Light) – which was Giten’s first ashram in beautiful Halsingland in the north of Sweden when he was 15 years old – congratulates Giten for spreading meditation.


“Satsang with Giten is a taste of the eternal, a taste of the timeless. It can feel like we sat for 3 hours, while we only sat for 40 minutes.


I was so afraid that I would lose the silence that I had found during satsang in India, but I found the silence again in satsang with Giten. Samadhi is like dying. The fear that I experienced in the beginning in satsang when I went into samadhi, when I disappeared into the silence, has now disappeared totally.

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

Before I started to attend satsang, I did not think that enlightenment was possible, but now I feel that it is possible. Satsang with Giten confirms what I have really always known.

– Padma

The Mystery School was born in the autumn, 2019, in Stockholm. Satyama Padma, participant in satsang with Giten said that satsang with Giten is a mystery school, which she felt blessed to participate in.

What is a mystery school? The Mystery school teaches you how to live. The whole work of The Mystery School is to help you to find yourself, to find your authentic inner being. The work of the mystery school is to wake the student up and to allow him to be himself.

Satyama Padma, said that her experience of spiritual organizations is that people tries to impose themselves on others and aggressively tries make each other somebody else, but with Giten she found a freedom to be herself.

The satsang participant Samarpan also commented that Giten’s quality of allowing people to be themselves is a rare quality. The satsang participant Deva Emanuel commented that he would not have stayed in satsang with Giten if it was not for the atmosphere and climate of love. He also says that satsang with Giten is a mystery school.

Giten’s mystery school is a place, where love is taught. It is a place where love is nourished. It is to make your love pure – without ego, power and domination – just a sheer gift of joy a delight in the being of the other person.

The mystery school is the way of the Upanishads, which Giten has been teaching for the last 4 years. The word Upanishad means “to be near, to be close”, which is the heart of satsang. The word Upanishad means to be in the presence of the spiritual teacher and to take in his silence. That is the essence of the work of a mystery school. The mystery school manages to create a certain field of energy and if you are receptive, if you are available, if you are ready to go on the journey of the unknown.

The spiritual teacher simply provides a system to enter slowly into the deep waters and ultimately to enter a stage, where you disappear into the ocean; you become the ocean itself. To become a part of a mystery school is a great benediction. It is very difficult to find a mystery school to find people who are searching and not imposing themselves on each other, but only helping each other if the need is there.

The whole work of the mystery school to let your ego dissolve and to help you into a deep let-go with existence. To be initiated into mystery school simply means that now you are taking the first step towards actualizing your potential for freedom. He is Buddha, he is a Christ; then he lives in freedom.

In this satsang series we will also explore five keys to spiritual maturity:

1. Be a light to yourself: The last words of Gautama the Buddha on the earth were: Be a light unto yourself. Do not follow others, because following creates stupidity. You are born with a light within you. You are enough to yourself. You are sufficient to yourself. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you. Nobody else can guide you, nobody else can become a model for your life because you are unique. Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of our own consciousness. This very message of Buddha functions as a reminder to all the seekers of truth – on the path of enlightenment.

  1. Intuition, the inner guide, the inner master:  Creating a trust in yourself and in your intuition, your inner guide, the inner master.  Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you.  You have to be silent, quiet, so you can listen to the still small voice within you, and then follow it. Wherever it leads, it is good. Go in deep trust, following your own voice.

 Intuition means something that arises from within inner being. Intuition is the voice of being and consciousness. It is your potential, which is why it is called intuition. Unless you have your intuition, unless you have your own wisdom , your own vision, your own clarity, your own eyes to see, you will not be able to understand the mystery of existence.

To give meaning to your life, to your heart, existence has given intuition to your heart. Out of intution arises the possibilities of art, of love, of friendship – intuition will lead you to wisdom, to enlightenment. Then your life is a life of immense light, joy and serenity.

Intuition makes a man wise- call it enlightenment or awakening, those are simply different names from wisdom.
Intuition brings meaning to life, joy, blessings. Intuition gives you the secrets of existence, brings a tremendous silence, which cannot be disturbed and which cannot be taken away from you.

3. Love, freedom and aloneness: One of the most significant teachings of Buddha is to love yourself and watch. Love yourself and watch are Buddha’s two steps of meditation. Just as food is nourishment for the body; love is nourishment for the soul. Without nourishment for the soul, the body becomes weak. Without nourishment of love, the soul becomes weak.

To make you spiritually weak, all the religious traditions have taught you to love others, but don’t love yourself. All the cultures and civilizations has taught you not to love yourself, because if a man cannot love himself he cannot love anybody else either. And no state, church and vested interests has ever wanted you to love yourself, because love give you a strong soul, so that nobody can exploit, manipulate and control you.

You have been made afraid of being in love with yourself, which is the first step of love. A man who loves himself respects himself. And a man who loves and respects himself loves and respects others. He becomes aware that we are not different: we are one. In the foundation, we are part of one nature. A man who loves himself starts overflowing, so that his love starts reaching others. You love other people, you love animals, flowers and trees.

Love makes you a spiritual force. Love yourself, says Buddha, this can transform the whole world.

Love begins with yourself, and then it can spread. Love yourself, says Buddha, and then he adds, and watch. That is Buddha’s word for meditation. The first step is to love yourself, and the second step is to watch. Love is the first step to know yourself.If you do not love yourself, you will never know yourself. Love your body, love your mind and love your soul. Watching is meditation. It is Buddha’s name for meditation. He says: Be aware, be alert and be conscious.

The first step in meditation is to love yourself, to respect and accept yourself as you are. The second step in meditation is to watch – watch when you take a walk, watch when you eat and watch when you spend time with friends.

4. Joy that comes from within: Giten posits that to be joyful is the basic nature of life. Joy is the spiritual dimension of happiness, in which one begins to understand one’s intrinsic value and place inthe universe.

  Accepting joy is a decision to “go with the flow,” to begrateful to be alive and for all the challenges and opportunities in life,rather than setting conditions or demands for happiness.Joy is the essence of our life. That even unhappiness has its roots in joy.

Giten shares a unique perspective of accepting joy by being grateful for our life with its challenges and opportunities rather than placing a demand or setting conditions for it. Giten urges us to reconnect with the natural joy that we were born with, and that is available to us the moment we turn our attention to the silent space within.

  1. Spiritual creativity – Being in harmony with existence. Spiritual creativity is an attitude to life. Spiritual creativity is to be in harmony with existence, spirtual creativity is to act in harmony with existence.  Spiritual creativity has nothing to do with a certain activity that you do. Spiritual creativity has to do with the presence, love, joy and silence that you give to the activity that you do.  Then everything can be creative.

    In this satsang series, Giten will also describe the work of a mystery school. He will talk about what mysticism is, and he will talk about love, trust, intuition, courage, fear, the ego, meditation, creativity, freedom, doing and non-doing, death, the relationship between the spiritual teacher and the student, silence, enlightenment, life and existence.

    The Mystery School is the science of meditation: how to observe the mind and its processes min a relaxed, non-judgmental way and the find the perception and clarity of self-realization. Meditation is a way of settling in oneself, at the innermost core your being. Once you have found the center of your existence, you will have found both your roots and wings. The roots are in your inner being and existence and the wings are in the fragrance that is released in contact with existence.

    The fragrance consists of love, freedom, compassion, authenticity, sincerity, humor and a tremendous feeling of blissfulness. The roots make you an individual, and the wings give the freedom to love, to be creative, to share unconditionally the joy that you have found.

The mystery school is supported by silent satsang with Giten, which is a direct insight and realization of being.

SPIRITUAL CREATIVITY:

TO ACT IN HARMONY WITH EXISTENCE

8-9 February, 2020

Andlig kreativitet är en attityd till livet. Andlig Kreativitet är att vara i harmoni med existensen, andlig kreativitet är att agera i harmoni med existensen.

Andlig kreativitet har inte någonting att göra med en viss aktivitet. Allting kan vara kreativt. Det är du som tillför en kvalitet av närvaro, kärlek och glädje till till aktiviteten. Aktivitet i sig själv är varken kreativ eller inte kreativ.

Kreativitet är den kvalitet som du tillför till aktiviteten som du utför. Det är en attityd, en inre attityd, till hur du ser på saker och hur du ser på livet.

Begränsa inte kreativitet till en viss aktivitet. Det är personen, som är kreativ – och om personen är kreativ. så kan allting som han eller hon gör vara kreativt. Till och med om han eller hon promenerar eller bara sitter, så kan du se att han eller hon är kreativ.

Kreativitet handlar grundläggande inte om att du målar, skriver eller skapar musik. Kreativitet handlar om att du lägger in hela din själ i det som du skapar. Då kommer ditt kreativa resultat att ha någonting av det gudomliga.

Kreativitet har att göra med kvaliteten hos ditt medvetande. Vadän du gör kan bli kreativt. Vadän du gör kan bli kreativt om du vet vad kreativitet innebär.

Kreativitet betyder att hitta en glädje i vilket arbete som helst som en meditation, att göra vilket arbete som helst med en djup kärlek. Om du älskar ett arbete, så blir det kreativt. Om du verkligen älskar någonting, så blir det kreativt.

Vadän du gör kan vara kreativt om du gör det med glädje, om du gör det med kärlek. Om någonting utvecklas inom dig, så är det andligt, det är kreativt, det är gudomligt. Du blir mer andlig, desto mer du blir kreativ. När din kreativitet kommer till ett klimax, så blir hela ditt liv kreativt, du lever i Gud.

Älska vad du gör. Var meditativ medan du gör det – och det blir kreativt.

En individ med en förståelse för andlig kreativitet är kontinuerligt kreativ. Det  är en attityd till livet. Inte för att han eller hon försöker att vara kreativ, utan till och med det sätt som han eller hon sitter kan vara en kreativ akt.

Andlig kreativitet är ett paradoxalt tillstånd av varande och medvetande. Det är att tillåta någonting att ske genom dig. det är att bli en passage, så att helheten kan flöda genom dig. När du inte är, så är Gud – det är kreativitet. Det är andlig kreativitet – att tillåta Gud att hända är kreativitet. Andlig kreativitet är ett andligt tillstånd.

Visdom är att agera i harmoni med existensen. Detta är visdomens essens; att vara i harmoni med existensen, att vara i kontakt med universums rytm. Det är andlig kreativitet.

Under denna kurs kommer Giten att prata om följande teman: Vad är andlig kreativitet?, skillnaden mellan själv-medvetande, vilket består av egot och som skapar en separation och en konflikt med existensen samt medvetande, vilket är att fritt flöda med livet och existensen, skillnaden mellan aktion, att vara i kontakt med livet och att agera utifrån hjärtat i ögonblicket och aktivitet, att agera utifrån egot och det förflutna, de fem hindren för att vara i kontakt med andlig kreativitet samt de fyra nycklarna till kreativitet.

Denna kurs kommer att stödjas av stilla satsang med Giten. Satsang med Giten är ett möte i kärlek, sanning och stillhet. Det är en direkt insikt och erfarenhet av varande. Det är ett nytt sätt att vara, ett nytt sätt att vara kreativ, som kan transformera hela ditt liv.

THE MYSTERY SCHOOL:

BE A LIGHT TO YOURSELF

 – BEING IN HARMONY WITH EXISTENCE

 

  Intuition, the inner guide, the inner master – Joy from within – Loving Yourself: Love, freedom & Aloneness – Spiritual Creativity: Being in Harmony with Existence  

Satsang weekend with Giten, 6-8 March, 2020, in Stockholm

The last words of Gautama the Buddha on the earth were: Be a light unto yourself. Do not follow others, because following creates stupidity. You are born with a light within you. You are enough to yourself. You are sufficient to yourself. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you. Nobody else can guide you, nobody else can become a model for your life because you are unique. Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of our own consciousness, and foolishness as following others.

Buddha says, “BE A LIGHT UNTO YOURSELF!” That is his greatest message. This very message of Buddha functions as a reminder to all the seekers of truth – on the path of enlightenment.

Nobody else in the whole world, in the whole history of humanity, has been so respectful towards others as Gautam the Buddha. “Be a light unto yourself.”

Buddhas only point the way — fingers pointing to the moon. YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW, AND YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW ACCORDING TO YOUR NATURE. You have to be silent, quiet, so you can listen to the still small voice within you, and then follow it. Wherever it leads, it is good.

GO IN DEEP TRUST, FOLLOWING YOUR OWN VOICE. Be spontaneous, natural, ordinary. This is the way of being extraordinary. Be ordinary but aware, and the ordinary becomes the sacred.

A buddha has not to be followed, but understood. A buddha has not to be imitated but listened to — listened to in tremendous silence, love, trust. And the more you understand a buddha, the more you will feel he is speaking not from the outside but from within, from the very core of your being. 

In this satsang weekend series we will also explore five keys to spiritual maturity: 

  1. Be a light to yourself: The last words of Gautama the Buddha on the earth were: Be a light unto yourself. Do not follow others, because following creates stupidity.

“With Giten’s book on Jesus, it is like Jesus is coming back. It is the true Jesus.”

– Prem Mukta, Artist & Music management, participant in satsang with Giten, Stockholm

“No one has been able to deliver the message of Jesus so fantastic beautiful that Giten has managed in the book “The way, the truth and the life.” Finally we have got his message in original. I am shaken and stunned.

The religious words that Giten formulate can make anyone mentally stunned. These words create an inner silence and a deep spiritual wonder for life. Giten has shaken me. I hope the readers also discover his greatness.”

-Brage Norin, professor in theoretical physics

“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 book is a compilation of Swami Dhyan Giten’s lectures on Jesus Christ during satsang between May – July, 2015, in Stockholm.

Giten was a disciple of Jesus in a former life.

In this book Giten talks about the beauty and wisdom of the words of Jesus.

Giten talks about Jesus, the Man, Jesus, the Mystic and Jesus, the Rebel. He makes a clear distinction between Jesus Christ and the religion that has been built around him – Christianity.

Through talking about the gospels of Matthew, Luke and John, Giten reintroduces Jesus as the man, the mystic and the compromiseless rebel, who are filled with love and compassion. Jesus becomes alive in a new and dynamic way and not in the way that Jesus has been presented to us by the theologians and the priests.

Giten talks about love, joy, trust, acceptance, healing, truth, the need to serve, the difference between being and ego, wisdom, silence and God.

For the first time, we really feel the laughter, passion, silence and celebration of life in Jesus, which shows us the deeper meaning, the timeless relevance.

This book is a a joy and a delight for those in love with the words of Jesus.

In-between the lectures on Jesus Christ, Giten answer questions on spiritual growth from seekers of truth.

“I was 9 years old when I had my first spiritual awakening, my first glimpse of wholeness with Existence, my first taste of the language of silence, says spiritual teacher and best-selling author Swami Dhyan Giten in this book. 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. 

I have always had the capacity to go within myself and to discover the silence within, the inner meditative quality, the inner source of love and truth, the inner language of silence”, Giten explains in this book. “Now I also notice that this silence is going deeper, and that I go beyond the ego and disappear into the silence. “

This book consists of a collection of quotes from Swami Dhyan Giten on silence. It also explains how silence is the flower and love and wholeness are the fragrance.

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 has touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.

“As I started studying for Giten, a new dimension of awareness has developed step by step, which has transformed my whole life. Thank you so much Giten for your wonderful being and support in life.” 

– From the foreword by Deva Emanuel, musician and student of Giten since 6 years. 

 

“Swami Dhyan Giten’s The Language of Silence — From Darkness to Light reminds me of those moments when we drift back from sleep to wakefulness and the precious insights that quite often occur in those instants of ”awakening.”

It is my own experience that all spiritual paths have a common thread which most simply stated is: unconditional self acceptance. It is this process or journey toward self acceptance that leads to our connection with our individual aloneness and silence about which Giten so beautifully often comments. Here Giten tells us we find our true heart, that love that becomes our healer and a healing presence that projects beyond ourselves and heals and nourishes the lives of all others with who we have contact, be they friends, strangers or even our pets.

Giten’s “The Language of Silence” is a beautifully expressed and highly intimate picture of his own spiritual history. While reading this book which is formatted in short segments and insightful phrases and a true delight to read and sure to later re-visit, I had the sense of listening to his open heart as it gave words to his personal silence. 


 Giten offers us a quite intimate connection with his inner being and thus a glimpse of the beauty within ourselves.”

– Eric Rolf, international lecturer, author of “Soul Medicine” and former consultant to John Lennon

Spiritual therapy works basically because we are all one. In the depth of our heart and being, we are in contact with each other. We are in contact with each other in the ocean of consciousness.

This book is an invitation to open our heart. This book is basically about love. It is designed to help us understand how healing happens. Healing is pure love. Healing and wholene Spiritual therapy works basically because we are all one. In the depth of our heart and being, we are in contact with each other. We are in contact with each other in the ocean of consciousness.

This book is an invitation to open our heart. This book is basically about love. It is designed to help us understand how healing happens. Healing is pure love. Healing and wholeness happens when we meet the love within ourselves.

Working with people from love, truth and wholeness is the psychology of being, the science of inner transformation. The psychology of being begins where Western psychology ends. It goes beyond Skinner, Freud, Jung, Rogers and Humanistic psychology.

The psychology of being is the psychology of consciousness, a psychology for inner transformation. It is basically not a question of psychology; it is a question of being. The psychology of being begins where we are and takes us to that which we can be.

This book is designed to help us develop our presence, so that our presence and intuition becomes a source of love, joy, acceptance, understanding, truth, silence, wisdom and creativity in the contact with another person.

This book presents a new dimension of healing with a base in meditation. Meditation is the way to deepen our capacity to be present and to explore how to bring the meditative presence and quality into the healing and therapeutic process. The underlying theme of the book is meditation – but not meditation as a static technique – but as the capacity to BE with ourselves and with another person in a quality of watchful awareness, acceptance and relaxation.

This book is written both for people who want to discover their own inner being and for those who work with other people and wants to discover a new love, clarity, depth and inspiration in their professional work.

The different topics of the book are combined with practical exercises.

Giten quotes from Be a Light to Yourself,

Satsang weekend with Giten,

15 – 17 November, 2019, in Stockholm

“The satsang weekend with Giten went into a new depth.”

– Deva Emanuel

The satsang during the satsang weekend with Giten went into deep meditation, silence and egolessness.

 Giten on Being a light to yourself,

Intuition, the inner guide and the master within,

Bliss, Love and Egolessness

BE A LIGHT TO YOURSELF

“The last words of Buddha were: Be a light to yourself. You are born with a light within you. You are enough to yourself. You are sufficient to yourself. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you.

Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of your own consciousness. This message of Buddha functions as a reminder to the seeker of truth – on the path to enlightenment.”

 

INTUITION, THE INNER GUIDE, THE MASTER WITHIN

Our intuition is the inner teacher,

The old Indian scriptures say that the outer spiritual teacher is helpful to find your own intuition, your own inner teacher.

 

BLISS

Happiness is the meaning and goal of life.

 

LOVE

The divine way is to remain true to love.

Remain true to love and remain true to life.

Love and meditation are one of the most essential messages. Love and meditation should go hand in hand.

Only two meditators can live together in love.

 

EGOLESSNESS

“The truth is that egolessness is the door to bliss.


The moment you are egoless, you are nothing, you become a door to the divine.”

 

– Swami Dhyan Giten

 

The satsang weekend ended with a celebration of laughter, silence and questions about spiritual growth. It was also celebrated with Glogg – the red wine with the rich warmth of cinnamon, clover and cardamom spice, which is part of the Swedish Christmas celebration – mango juice and cake.

Bliss of Being: Joy that comes from Within with Giten, 14-15 December, 2019, in Stockholm

Giten leende, Gitens födelsedag, 2019

Bliss of Being

Joy that comes from Within

 

14-15 December, 2019, in Stockholm

“Satsang with Giten is heaven.”

Satyama Padma

“Satsang with Giten is magical. Thanks for this gift.”

– Deva Emanuel

 

Joy and happiness is a state of consciousness, a state of our being, which is not dependent on other people and outer circumstances.

 To be joyful is the basic nature of life. Joy is the spiritual dimension of happiness, in which one begins to understand one’s intrinsic value and place in the universe.

Accepting joy is a decision to “go with the flow,” to be grateful to be alive and for all the challenges and opportunities in life, rather than setting conditions or demands for happiness.

Joy is the essence of our life. Giten shares a unique perspective of accepting joy by being grateful for our life with its challenges and opportunities rather than placing a demand or setting conditions for it.

Giten urges us to reconnect with the natural joy that we were born with, and that is available to us the moment we turn our attention to the silent space within.

Joy and bliss means you have reached to the depth of your inner being. The being belongs to the depth of your being where even the ego is no more, where only silence prevails; you have disappeared. In joy you exist a little bit, but in bliss you are not. The ego has dissolved; it is a state of nonbeing.

In this course with Giten we will examine the nature of joy from a radically different perspective. We will examine joy as the essence of life. We will examine how to accept joy by being grateful to be alive and for the challenges and opportunities in life.

In this course we will examine joy and happiness as a state of consciousness, a state of being, which is not dependent on other people and circumstances, understanding the roots of unhappiness and misery, how joy is to enter into one’s own self, which is to move from unhappiness to joy and happiness and how misery is an identification with our ego and how bliss is connected with egolessness.

This course is supported by satsang with Giten, which is a direct insight and realization of our being, our inner source of joy and bliss.

Love, Freedom and Aloneness

Giten shared his presence, love, joy, truth and silence in a satsang weekend on love, freedom and aloneness, 12-13 October, 2019 in Stockholm

 

“The satsang weekend with Giten on love, freedom and aloneness was a deep source of joy and love”

– Deva Emanuel, participant in satsang weekend on love, freedom and aloneness with Giten, 12-13 October, 2019 in Stockholm

 

“There is a large difference between real love and ordinary love. Real love is nourishment of the soul, ordinary love is strengthening of the ego.”

 

“Love is the first step on the spiritual path to love yourself, to respect yourself and to accept yourself as you are.”

 

“Only when you love, respect and accept yourself, you can love and respect another person.”

 

“A man who loves himself respects himself.”

 

“Love your body, love your mind and love your soul.”

 

“Food is nourishment for the body, love is nourishment for the soul.”

 

“Love is painful because it creates way for joy. Love gives you the first experience of God.”

 

“The whole spiritual journey consists of two steps: meditation and love.”

 

“Love is the highest value in life. Without love, life is meaningless and with love life

becomes meaningful.”

 

“Love makes you a spiritual force.”

 

– Swami Dhyan Giten

THE MYSTERY SCHOOL:

BE A LIGHT TO YOURSELF – THE MASTER WITHIN

LIVING IN THE LIGHT OF OUR OWN CONSCIOUSNESS

Satsang with Giten, November – January 2020, in Stockholm

Ten Thursday evenings: 7, 14, 21, 28 November. 5, 12, 19 December. 9, 16, 23 January 2020. 1500:-

“Giten is real. Authentic on his way and self. A loving man, who knows the science of truth, love and life.

– Prem Pathik, India

“Satsang with Giten is a taste of the eternal, a taste of the timeless. It can feel like we sat for 3 hours, while we only sat for 40 minutes.

I was so afraid that I would lose the silence that I had found during satsang in India, but I found the silence again in satsang with Giten. Samadhi is like dying. The fear that I experienced in the beginning in satsang when I went into samadhi, when I disappeared into the silence, has now disappeared totally.

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

Before I started to attend satsang, I did not think that enlightenment was possible, but now I feel that it is possible. Satsang with Giten confirms what I have really always known.

– Padma

The Mystery School was born in the autumn, 2019, in Stockholm. Satyama Padma, participant in satsang with Giten said that satsang with Giten is a mystery school, which she felt blessed to participate in.

What is a mystery school? The Mystery school teaches you how to live. The whole work of The Mystery School is to help you to find yourself, to find your authentic inner being. The work of the mystery school is to wake the student up and to allow him to be himself.

Satyama Padma, said that her experience of spiritual organizations is that people tries to impose themselves on others and aggressively tries make each other somebody else, but with Giten she found a freedom to be herself.

The satsang participant Samarpan also commented that Giten’s quality of allowing people to be themselves is a rare quality. The satsang participant Deva Emanuel commented that he would not have stayed in satsang with Giten if it was not for the atmosphere and climate of love. He also says that satsang with Giten is a mystery school.

Giten’s mystery school is a place, where love is taught. It is a place where love is nourished. It is to make your love pure – without ego, power and domination – just a sheer gift of joy a delight in the being of the other person.

The healer in Gothenburg, Lena Nikunen, described Giten as ‘a loving transmitter of much wisdom’ and a teacher, who participated in a course with Giten said: ‘I am impressed by Giten’s intuition and by his way of conducting therapeutic work – or if I should rather call it: giving insight into love.’

The mystery school is the way of the Upanishads, which Giten has been teaching for the last 4 years. The word Upanishad means “to be near, to be close”, which is the heart of satsang. The word Upanishad means to be in the presence of the spiritual teacher and to take in his silence. That is the essence of the work of a mystery school. The mystery school manages to create a certain field of energy and if you are receptive, if you are available, if you are ready to go on the journey of the unknown.

The spiritual teacher simply provides a system to enter slowly into the deep waters and ultimately to enter a stage, where you disappear into the ocean; you become the ocean itself. To become a part of a mystery school is a great benediction. It is very difficult to find a mystery school to find people who are searching and not imposing themselves on each other, but only helping each other if the need is there.

The whole work of the mystery school to let your ego dissolve and to help you into a deep let-go with existence. To be initiated into mystery school simply means that now you are taking the first step towards actualizing your potential for freedom. He is Buddha, he is a Christ; then he lives in freedom.

In this satsang series we will also explore three keys to spiritual maturity:

1. Be a light to yourself: The last words of Gautama the Buddha on the earth were: Be a light unto yourself. Do not follow others, because following creates stupidity. You are born with a light within you. You are enough to yourself. You are sufficient to yourself. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you. Nobody else can guide you, nobody else can become a model for your life because you are unique. Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of our own consciousness. This very message of Buddha functions as a reminder to all the seekers of truth – on the path of enlightenment.

2. Love, freedom and aloneness: One of the most significant teachings of Buddha is to love yourself and watch. Love yourself and watch are Buddha’s two steps of meditation. Just as food is nourishment for the body; love is nourishment for the soul. Without nourishment for the soul, the body becomes weak. Without nourishment of love, the soul becomes weak.

To make you spiritually weak, all the religious traditions have taught you to love others, but don’t love yourself. All the cultures and civilizations has taught you not to love yourself, because if a man cannot love himself he cannot love anybody else either. And no state, church and vested interests has ever wanted you to love yourself, because love give you a strong soul, so that nobody can exploit, manipulate and control you.

You have been made afraid of being in love with yourself, which is the first step of love. A man who loves himself respects himself.And a man who loves and respects himself loves and respects others. He becomes aware that we are not different: we are one. In the foundation, we are part of one nature. A man who loves himself starts overflowing, so that his love starts reaching others. You love other people, you love animals, flowers and trees.

Love makes you a spiritual force. Love yourself, says Buddha, this can transform the whole world.

Love begins with yourself, and then it can spread. Love yourself, says Buddha, and then he adds, and watch. That is Buddha’s word for meditation. The first step is to love yourself, and the second step is to watch. Love is the first step to know yourself.If you do not love yourself, you will never know yourself. Love your body, love your mind and love your soul. Watching is meditation. It is Buddha’s name for meditation. He says: Be aware, be alert and be conscious.

The first step in meditation is to love yourself, to respect and accept yourself as you are. The second step in meditation is to watch – watch when you take a walk, watch when you eat and watch when you spend time with friends.

3. Joy that comes from within: Giten posits that to be joyful is the basic nature of life. Joy is the spiritual dimension of happiness, in which one begins to understand one’s intrinsic value and place inthe universe.

Accepting joy is a decision to “go with the flow,” to begrateful to be alive and for all the challenges and opportunities in life,rather than setting conditions or demands for happiness.Joy is the essence of our life. That even unhappiness has its roots in joy.

Giten shares a unique perspective of accepting joy by being grateful for our life with its challenges and opportunities rather than placing a demand or setting conditions for it. Giten urges us to reconnect with the natural joy that we were born with, and that is available to us the moment we turn our attention to the silent space within.

In this satsang series, Giten will also describe the work of a mystery school. He will talk about what mysticism is, and he will talk about love, trust, intuition, courage, fear, the ego, meditation, creativity, freedom, doing and non-doing, death, the relationship between the spiritual teacher and the student, silence, enlightenment, life and existence.

The Mystery School is the science of meditation: how to observe the mind and its processes min a relaxed, non-judgmental way and the find the perception and clarity of self-realization. Meditation is a way of settling in oneself, at the innermost core your being. Once you have found the center of your existence, you will have found both your roots and wings. The roots are in your inner being and existence and the wings are in the fragrance that is released in contact with existence.

The fragrance consists of love, freedom, compassion, authenticity, sincerity, humor and a tremendous feeling of blissfulness. The roots make you an individual, and the wings give the freedom to love, to be creative, to share unconditionally the joy that you have found.
The mystery school is supported by silent satsang with Giten, which is a direct insight and realization of being.

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.

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. 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).

I never thought that samadhi was possible, but in satsang with Giten samadhi is knocking on the door.”

– Padma
The last words of Gautama the Buddha on the earth were: Be a light unto yourself. Do not follow others, because following creates stupidity. You are born with a light within you. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you. Nobody else can guide you, nobody else can become a model for your life because you are unique. Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of our own consciousness, and foolishness as following others.
Buddha says, “BE A LIGHT UNTO YOURSELF!” That is his greatest message. This very message of Buddha functions as a reminder to all the seekers of truth – on the path of enlightenment.
Nobody else in the whole world, in the whole history of humanity, has been so respectful towards others as Gautam the Buddha. “Be a light unto yourself.” Buddhas only point the way — fingers pointing to the moon. YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW, AND YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW ACCORDING TO YOUR NATURE. You have to be silent, quiet, so you can listen to the still small voice within you, and then follow it. Wherever it leads, it is good. GO IN DEEP TRUST, FOLLOWING YOUR OWN VOICE. Be spontaneous, natural, ordinary. This is the way of being extraordinary. Be ordinary but aware, and the ordinary becomes the sacred.
A buddha has not to be followed, but understood. A buddha has not to be imitated but listened to — listened to in tremendous silence, love, trust. And the more you understand a buddha, the more you will feel he is speaking not from the outside but from within, from the very core of your being.
This satsang weekend is supported by silent satsang with Giten, which is a direct insight and realization of being. It is a direct realization to be a light to yourself.
