Love is the Highest Religion

“Love is the highest religion. If you only love, everything will come by itself: meditation, silence, truth, freedom and God.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten 

 

“YES”

– The Swedish funny girl, actor, comedian, artist and writer, Jessica Karlén, responds to Gitens invitation to satsang on enlightenment in the autumn with a short reply. “Yes”

Giten comments: “Yes is the only possible word. Enlightenment is a yes to yourself, to others and to life. Otherwise the usual words in Sweden are “no” and security.”

Jessica Karlén is a Swedish actor, artist and comedian based in Stockholm, who is also a student of philosophy at Södertörn University.

ENLIGHTENMENT IS YOUR NATURE: THE PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT

Satsang with Giten during November, December and January 2021: Ten Thursday evenings in Stockholm

Four satsang weekends with Giten during October, November, December and January 2021

“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.

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

– Padma 

”While I cannot express enough how grateful I am to receive your paintings, please know I sincerely appreciate your kindness and good thought. There are so many people in this world who are in keen need of your energies that, in keeping with The Kindness Chain, I ask you to consider sharing your goodwill with them in the future.”

– Oprah, The Oprah Winfrey Show,USA

2-4 October, 1700:- 

ENLIGHTENMENT IS YOUR NATURE

An invitation to the sincere seeker of truth

Man can live in two ways: the natural way and the unnatural way. The natural person is the enlightened person. To be natural is to be enlightened. Enlightenment is a state of being natural.

People become enlightened only when they have discovered their original source; when they have become natural they are enlightened. Enlightenment is to be ordinary, to be nobody, to be natural. 

Enlightenment is a simple process: it is just becoming your authentic self, your authentic being. And it is so luminous that in its light all darkness and all doubt disappears. Enlightenment is simply a process of discovering yourself. Enlightenment is nothing but the discovery of our original face – the essential reality you brought with you, and the essential reality you will have to take with you when you die. And this original face is luminous, because it is part of eternal life. And a tremendous insight arises that you are not separate from existence.

In this satsang weekend, Giten offers a radically different view of enlightenment, freed from all spiritual and religious beliefs.

In this satsang weekend, Giten takes the participants step by step through the history of how both East and West have approached the mysteries of the human mind and spirituality. 

In this satsang weekend, Giten takes us through this experience of letting go of identification, which allows us to get a direct insight and experience of what a life of enlightenment can be. 

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.  

Topics in the course:

– What is enlightenment?

– The six steps to enlightenment

– Peeling the onion of Personality

– Waking up from the Dream

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.

6-8 November, 1700:-

AWAKENING: The three Steps to Enlightenment

The Language of Silence:

The Art of Meditation

  Awareness is the Key. Waking up or awakening means that the dream is over – the dream of unconsciousness we all spend most of our lives in – often a life of tensions, anguish, feeling unfulfilled and running after illusions which are just substitutes of what we are really looking for. 

In this satsang weekend, Giten takes us through the three steps on the path to awakening, steps to help us to get out of our conditioning, our limitations and frustrations. There are only three steps: freedom of consciousness, simplicity of mind, and emptiness of mind.

For freedom of thought, for liberation of thought, and for the awakening of intelligence, the first thing, the first awareness that is needed is: “No thought is mine. No thought is mine.” 

In this satsang weekend, Giten takes us through this experience of letting go of identification, which allows us to get a glimpse what a life of awakening can be. 

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.  

 

4-6 December, 1700:-

The Psychology of the Buddhas, The Science of the Soul

In this satsang weekend, Giten offers a simple science of consciousness that he calls the psychology of the Buddha’s, the Science of the Soul. It is a science that in very clear terms shows how one can, through awareness and taking full responsibility for one’s life, go beyond all limited belief systems, habits, and superstitions of the mind. That process, he says, brings us back to our nature – and that is enlightenment.   

Modern psychology studies the mind as an object, from the outside. The soul is completely denied by modern psychology.  Modern psychology tries to understand the mind, not to go beyond it, because psychologists think there is no beyond the mind. The psychology of the Buddhas is a psychology that is based in meditation, to understand from within, where the whole interest is how to get out of the prison of the mind, how to use the structure of the mind to get beyond it. 

In this satsang weekend, Giten takes us through this experience of letting go of identification, which allows us to get a direct insight and experience of what a life of enlightenment can be.    

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. 

15 – 17 January, 2021, 1700:-

NIRVANA – THE LAST NIGHTMARE

Nirvana and enlightenment has become associated with an altered state of consciousness to be hoped for, but likely unattainable, reinforcing that all too familiar uneasiness associated with never being able to have what we truly desire in life. 

In this satsang weekend, Giten unravels and reveals the meaning of nirvana and enlightenment. By absorbing without judgment and evaluation, making a decision without worrying if it is the right one, or surrendering to each moment, it is possible to come to a point where we simply drop through the manifestations of the ego. In that moment, living an ordinary life becomes an extraordinary delight.  

In this satsang weekend, Giten takes us through this experience of letting go of identification, which allows us to get a direct insight and experience of what a life of enlightenment can be.  

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.  

 

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN, spiritual teacher and best-selling author, has more than 30 years of experience in individual counseling and in teaching awareness and meditation. He is trained in modern psychology at the University of Stockholm, where the head teacher at the psychological institution called Giten “the salt of the earth”, and a classmate said that Giten “did not move an inch from who he is”. He is also trained in classic Eastern methods for awareness and meditation in the USA, Italy, Sweden and India. 

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.

    Giten’s first spiritual ashram when he was 15 years old was Ljusbacken (The Hill of Light) in beautiful Halsingland in the north of Sweden, and he was a student of the living spiritual teacher Osho, but 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.”  

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

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)

 

“Giten’s book “Meditationens Sång” is one of my favorite books. Giten’s fine book has meant a lot to me. I found it when I needed it the most – or maybe it found me…?”

Claudia Parvati Berghaus, counsellor and psychotherapist, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Gothenburg

THE AUTUMN BOOK FOR LIFE! SPIRITUAL TEACHER AND BEST-SELLING AUTHOR SWAMI DHYAN GITEN’S BOOK “PRESENCE .- WORKING FROM WITHIN: THE PSYCHOLOGY OF BEING”

 

Presence, lulu, ebok

AUTUMN BOOK FOR LIFE! SPIRITUAL TEACHER AND BEST-SELLING AUTHOR SWAMI DHYAN GITEN’S BOOK “PRESENCE .- WORKING FROM WITHIN: THE PSYCHOLOGY OF BEING”

“Presence – Working from Within” is more than a book about presence, but a manual in the art of unlocking the Soul’s Presence within the Personality.”
– Eric Rolf, International lecturer, course leader, former consultant to John Lennon and author of Soul Medicine

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

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.

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.

Padma in satsang with Giten

 

GITEN IS CURRENTLY EDITING HIS NEW BOOK “WHEN THE DROP BECOMES THE OCEAN” ON THE UPANISHADS, THE INSIGHT AND WISDOM OF INDIA

 

“Man is like a river on his way towards the ocean, towards the divine. The drop has a thirst, a longing. The drop knows nothing of the ocean, but the drop longs to become one with the ocean. The drop cannot find fulfillment until it becomes on with the ocean, the divine. This satsang series is a journey to the ocean, to the divine.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

 

Giten is currently compiling the book “when the Drop becomes the Ocean.”, which will be published in August, 2020.   

 The book is a compilation of lectures from satsang with Giten on the Upanishads, the insight and wisdom of India, between March 2016 and July 2018 in Stockholm. 

The book is dedicated to Padma, Gitens beloved friend since many lives, who participated in the satsang on The Upanishads.

 

  Don´t lose the quality  

The foreword to the book by Deva Emanuel

  From Deva Emanuel’s beautiful, insightful, honest and humorous foreword, which is also a tribute to Padma, whome the book is dedicated to.

The Upanishads is where the outer joy caused by outer circumstances gradually cools, loses its grip and disappears. At the point where impulses are born out of an inner depth, a being. From a spontaneous gap from the sensations, the silence flushes over me. The sensations and the identification with “me” no longer exist – and this is joy. The deeper the emptiness, the more joy. Here is home, here is bliss of the divine, amen.

Upanishads & satsang

In order to describe the Upanishads, the focus is instead pointing at satsang as the central tool. In contrast to traditional Western education – where the students from a very early age learns to obey orders and obtain knowledge from outer sources – the student’s focus is here on the inner work and to involve himself totally. Satsang challenge the student so that he gradually deepens his own inner listening.

Satsang with Giten has continuously challenged me and taken me deeper in myself. The core of this process is to become conscious of what is standing between me and being in contact with my inner being. The environment within warms, softens and relaxes inside in this first “witness”-phase. The moment I lose identification with “myself”, I slip into the phase of silence, and here there is no longer any mantra, prayer, ideology or judgments left – this is just being.

Satsang reminds me of experiences I have previously had from spontaneous presence. Some time ago before I had any knowledge of what meditation was, I was finding myself in a series of bomb attacks in London. Exhausted after being forced to walk for hours, I settled into a bookshop to rest. Suddenly the London police were heard in the speakers at the cafe and we were ordered to sit still and wait while the area was searched. Presence increased, fatigue disappeared, everything became very clear and intense – and every moment was precious.

After a few minutes, the London police were again heard in the speakers. The area was secured and all visitors were free to go. I walked out of the store and straightened my way home. The same streets passed, the same houses and English gardens were passed, but still changed. Everything was suddenly so incredibly fragile and beautiful. Although in the outer feelings I was filled with worry and with eyes filled with tears, there was inside me a deep, warm, dark, emptiness. Out of contact with this inner quality that remained for a day, new strange inspirational flows arose. Life felt precious, fragile, beautiful and inspired, and the next day with a guitar in my hand, astonishing three new songs were written, even though I almost never composed before.

In satsang with Giten, I notice how this quality of presence is not a static phenomenon. The meditative quality changes, is refined, goes deeper and has many different flavors. Nor does satsang develop any “sit beautifully in lotus”-ambition or become a “better” high-performing person. The dream that yoga- and meditation images from the health food magazines sell – where breathing exercises and pills should make me more useful for the market – has totally disappeared.

Meditation has instead gradually developed an inner source that embraces and accepts my own joy and myself as I already am. This has given me insights into the process of how love comes from within.

Life teaches through both positive experiences and failures. I remember a while ago when I was about to take a new step in life. The situation accentuated an unconscious inner self-doubt in me. I had become stuck in an hesitation unable to give myself to the risks it meant to nurture myself, my joy and my creativity. As a result, my outer most significant relationship with my then girlfriend, who wanted to be flowing in a living relationship, also got tired and totally broke with me. There I stood and had to bitterly taste the non-existent harvest that the lack of love in myself brought up and the pain was a fact.

Padma & The mystery school

In ordinary relationships I often repeat a kind of sluggishness and boredom. It was like a total shock to me to start acquainting myself with Padma. Before that, my meditation worked mostly as a “magic carpet”, where I could fly away to some kind of isolated mountain monastery for a moment’s rest from reality. Here, my worldview was completely shaken and turned upside down. By swinging this meditative hammock with Padma, my meditation has instead integrated into the world in a complete new way that I could never have imagined.

Life here in the West usually educates man in the choice between the two belief systems heaven and capital – with excessive belief in capital before retirement age and the belief in heaven after retirement age. In the relationship with Padma, I rather notice how the focus on practice meditation, instead of theory will be increasingly accentuated. Here I also notice how my own belief systems and theories of reincarnation are challenged – and just fall to the practical living fact in the humor and love from Padma.
Another memory while Padma was still in the body was when she brought me to the sea and we just sat and played didgeridoo. Then it happened to me what happens in satsang with Giten. There were no words and suddenly there was just such a beauty and synchronicity between us, the music, the nature and the sea. I was so happy and this insight taught me more about the importance of also consciously practice the process to come back after meditation. I experience more and more how all the qualities and gifts that come from my meditation melts together in a calm inner smile. A desire is gradually developed to be able to give back some of this beauty to the earth, life and existence. These keys open within me new doors to the unknown.
The Emergence of The mystery school

There is an even more subtle aspect of synchronicity that has been developed during satsang with Giten that is so difficult to define. This cornerstone also relates to the process of exploring and understanding the Upanishads. Padma, who also participated during the satsangs about the Upanishads, burst out lyrically and called the phenomenon for the emergence of a “mystery school”.

With this phenomenon I notice how my meditation has gone so much deeper. It is more quiet and easier to come back to silence. Something new arises out of this synchronicity with hearts and belongingness with nature.

From this contact a wish wells up to give back to nature, the earth, life and existence. Only a moment of this meditative relationship with nature and my whole perspective on life changes into a view I could never have figured ten years ago. Coming back after one of these moments create such healing. Right here, competition, power games and mind games and to continually adapting and improving myself, just becomes so distant. It falls away. From this quality, I am also mysteriously linked to the music again. That’s despite a number of really powerful efforts to stop playing music through my life.
Don´t lose the quality

One of the last sentences that Padma pointed out, before we separated physically for the last time on the subway after satsang with Giten, was just about honoring this cornerstone, “don’t lose the quality”.

Swami Dhyan Giten: Be Authentic and Listen to Yourself

Giten, foto, meditation, gul tröja

Be Authentic and Listen to Yourself

FROM THE SATSANG SERIES AWARENESS & SPIRITUAL MATURITY WITH GITEN, 28 MAY, 2020, IN STOCKHOLM

 

“Be truthful to yourself.

You do not need to change anybody else. If you can grow yourself that is enough.

To be authentic means to be true to your own being.

Always listen to your inner voice; otherwise your whole life will be wasted.

Don’t allow anybody else to try to manipulate and control you.

 

To be authentic means to be true to oneself.

Truth means the authenticity of being, not imposing anything that you are not.

Truth means not to pretend, just be whatsoever you are.

It is to be authentic, true and respectful to your own soul.

Risk everything for truth, otherwise you will remain discontented.

 

Even a single moment of authenticity is better than a whole life of inauthentic living.

Love is only possible with the truth. Love has to be lived; otherwise your life will be futile.

Risk everything for truth. Never risk truth for anything else.

Then tremendous happiness will be yours.

Once you are true, everything becomes possible.

It is not always easy to be true to oneself, but whenever people do it they achieve such beauty, grace and contentment.

Always listen to the inner voice, and don’t listen to anything else.

 

The world is a supermarket, and everybody is interested in selling things to you. The society wants to make you a hypocrite.

Just close your eyes and listen to the inner voice.

That is what meditation is all about, to listen to the inner voice.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

SILENCE & COMPASSION: THE ULTIMATE FLOWERING OF LOVE

Satsang weekend with Giten
19 – 21 Juni, 2020 in Stockholm

In this satsang weekend with Giten we will explore how to develop empathy with others and ourselves and how silence and compassion becomes a healing force.

Giten will show us how authentic compassion arises from within ourselves and how it begins with a deep love and acceptance of ourselves. It is only then that compassion blossoms to a healing force, which has its roots in unconditional love and acceptance for the other person as he or she is.

This satsang weekend is supported by satsang with Giten, which is direct insight and experience of being, which can transform your entire life.

“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.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten
