Giten: Rejoicing in Your Own Self

Giten's birtday 2017, Padma i samadhi

 Satyama Padma in samadhi, in bliss, during satsang with Giten

Rejoicing in your own self

From satsang with Giten on The Upanishads, 26 April, 2018, in Stockholm 

This sutra says that the seeker should always give up delighting in others, and start delighting in himself. 

We rejoice, but never in ourselves, only in others. We simply pay no attention to ourselves. 

You are sitting alone and unoccupied and feeling unhappy. You think that if another person arrives then there should be some joy. 

Alone, you begin to feel sad. Alone, you are not happy. 

You cannot give happiness to your own self, so how can you give it to others?

 

This sutra says rejoice in your own self. 

You are sitting alone, be joyous.

Several spiritual traditions emphasizes joy, ecstasy and rejoicing in your self.

The fundamental principle of the Sufis is not to make your happiness dependent on the other. Sufis emphasize to associate happiness with your own self, not with others.

Practice as a meditation to sit under a tree, alone, letting go of others and the world, allowing yourself to love and accept yourself as you are without judging or condemning yourself – and be happy.

We usually become happy for some outer reason.

Happiness without any reason is bliss.

One is simply rejoicing from with ourselves.

Bliss can only be without any reason.

When you seek happiness for a reason – in some person, in power, in money, in a position, in status, in fame, the end result is always unhappiness.

Seeking happiness in some outer cause will always result in sorrow.

Happiness always comes from our own self, from our own inner being.

When we discover the source of happiness within our own self it means that we do not have to go anywhere else searching for it.

The outer world is to fall in love with other people. Spirituality is the search to fall in love with our own self.

It is to allow the happiness to flow from within ourselves, not from the outside.

It is to rejoice in our own being, in our own existence.

Giten Birthday Celebration

Silence is the door to God

Saturday, May 12, 2018

10 AM-18 PM in Stockholm 

 

“Satsang with Giten is heaven.” 

– Satyama Padma 

 

“If in Stockholm … go and bless this boy.”

– Devadas, house father at Giten’s first ashram in Sweden when he was 15 years old

 

This is a loving invitation to Giten’s friends and sangha, who have participated in satsang with Giten before, to celebrate his birthday with darshan, satsang and a whole day on the topic Silence is the door to God. This day will consist of three spiritual keys from The Upanishads, the ancient insight and wisdom of India. 

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.  

Giten´s satsangs on The Upanishads, the ancient insight and wisdom of India, is a ground for sincere seekers of love and truth, who are interested in the mysteries of meditation.  

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. 

 

During this day we will explore three keys from The Upanishads: 

1. God, Brahman, means existence, being, the ocean of consciousness, the divine. Everything belongs to God, to existence. He who understands that everything belongs to existence attains to everything.  

2. The difference between love and possessiveness: There is only one basic problem in our lives. That is the anxiety about how to get love from others. All our fears come basically from this single dilemma. We have to experience true love as long as you need to demand it from others. True love will not diminish however much we give of it. In fact, the more we give of true love, the more we receive. 

3. The Path of Living: Surrender to Existence: He who understands that Everything belongs to God, to existence, and who let go of his ego, which is separated from life, attains to everything. He who empties himself, who surrenders even his “I”, his ego, becomes the master of infinite riches. Our inner being is the door to God, to existence. When we recognize that everything belongs to existence, you will be thrilled with the bliss within you. All the nectar of life will now be ours.

Heartbeat of the Absolute

Satsang weekend with Giten on The Upanishads, the ancient insight and wisdom of India

1-3 June, 2018, in Stockholm

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

– Deva Emanuel

Satsang with Giten is like a scent, a flowering of This is it! Satsang with Giten about the Upanishads, the wisdom of India, is so exciting. Giten do a fantastic work with satsang. Satsang with Giten is like satsang in India. 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

“If in Stockholm … go and bless this boy.”

– Devadas, house father at Giten’s first ashram in Sweden when he was 15 years old

 

Giten´s satsangs on The Upanishads, the ancient insight and wisdom of India, is a ground for sincere seekers of love and truth, who are interested in the mysteries of meditation.

During this satsang weekend, Giten will talk about oneness – existence is consciousness and life is one. The whole universe comes out of God, Brahman, who is the soul of the universe and who is endless, limitless and without beginning and end, the core of meditation: the void, the inner being, the inner silence and emptiness, the state of no-thinking, where we are already one with the divine, the two dimensions of man: mind and being, Understanding the inner being, the depth of our consciousness, the inner silence, from where we receive nourishment from existence, Understanding that our inner being is one with God, with existence,  understanding witnessing – the essence of meditation, learning to love and accept ourselves: be loving to yourself and do not judge or condemn yourself, Understanding the difference between love and possessiveness: There is only one basic problem in our lives. That is the fear and anxiety to get love from others. All our fears come basically from this single dilemma. We have to experience true love, which will not diminish however  much we give of it. In fact, the more we give of our true love, the more we receive, understanding the difference  between acting out of ego or being, acting out of ignorance and awareness: acting out of ego means “I am the doer”, acting out of being means egolessness, which means to surrender everything at the feet of existence, The Path of Living: Surrender to Existence: He who understands that everything belongs to God, to existence, and who let go of his ego, which is separated from life, attains to everything. He who empties himself, who surrenders even his “I”, his ego, becomes the master of infinite riches. Our inner being is the door to God, to existence. When we recognize that everything belongs to existence, you will be thrilled with the bliss within you. All the nectar of life will now be ours.

Instead of merely theorizing about spiritual experience, Giten teaches us how to live it in our daily lives.

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