THE MYSTERY SCHOOL: SATSANG WITH GITEN, 27 JUNE, IN STOCKHOLM: ENLIGHTENMENT IS THE REALIZATION THAT ALL IS AS IT SHOULD BE

“Enlightenment is the realization that all is as it should be. Everything is perfect as it is.

Enlightenment is not an effort to achieve. Enlightenment is a state of non-doing, of effortlessness. 

Enlightenment is the feeling that you are at home in existence. You are part of the whole. You don’t exist separately, all separation has disappeared.

Enlightenment is the understanding that all is good and that all is an tremendous harmony”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

The Mystery School: 

Becoming the Ocean

The Mystery School is 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, participant in satsang with Giten, and the last person to leave the funeral of the mystic Osho, 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 explore the five levels of the human consciousness: 1. The body  2. The mind 3. The heart 4. The being and 5. The Universal consciousness. These are the five levels that a sincere seeker develops through.

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.

 

Comments on the mystery school and satsang with Giten

“Yes, my friend, yes. Love u Giten.”

Comment on the mystery school from Prem Pathik, India

SATSANG WITH GITEN: ANCIENT, POWERFUL AND BEYOND CONTROL

“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, 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.

– Deva Mukta, Stockholm

“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.

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.”

When Giten pursued an advanced training in spiritual healing in USA 1984, he was told that he had the capacity to become a seventh chakra healer, a spiritual healer, to act as a catalyst and channel for spiritual energy from the seventh chakra through the heart. The last 30 years has meant to develop and deepen this capacity to an instrument of subtle catalytic effect.

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.”

Harmony with yourself, harmony with other people,
harmony in creativity and harmony and oneness with Life

 

“Moments of silence the process shows me that we are on the right way.”

-Swami Dhyan Giten

 

“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.

– Padma

 

Harmony arises when we are in tune with yourself, with other people, with creativity and with Life itself. A moment of silence and harmony is to be in tune with existence.

This is an unstructured course, where the focus is to learn to act with a quality of awareness in the moment, to act out of silence and emptiness in the moment and to learn to act out the truth of the moment.

A first emphasis in this course is to be in contact and harmony with your inner being, the inner silence and emptiness, our inner source of life.

The second emphasis is to be in harmony with other people.

A third emphasis is to be in harmony with our creativity.

A fourth emphasis is to be in harmony and oneness with life and existence.

These four keys to harmony will overlap in the course.

In the course, Giten will use silence, words and awareness to help us to understand the four keys and the topics of the course.

Giten has developed a subtle quality, which he has refined into a subtle instrument, which can help you to to find your own inner harmony.

Harmony is a deep inner connection between the spiritual teacher and the student and between the individual and existence.

This harmony brings such silence and bliss that all questions disappears. That harmony takes you into a different dimension of existence. It is a change of being, a change of consciousness. And suddenly a beautiful silence arises, which brings absolute contentment and blissfulness.

During the course there will be to opportunity to sit silently with Giten, which is a direct insight into our inner being, into the inner silence and emptiness.

 

Topics in the course depending on the situation in the course:

– Meditation: the state of yes, silence, emptiness

– The five levels of the human consciousness: the body, the mind, the heart, the being and the universal consciousness.

– Understanding the difference between ego and egolessness, understanding the difference between acting out of doing and non-doing.

– Understanding states of ego and mind: desire, attachment, fear and resistance

– The Power of acceptance: Learning to love, accept and respect yourself as you are.

Shraddha: Loving trust – Learning to trust yourself.

– Understanding the difference between acting out of the past and being in the moment.

Understanding the four life areas: meditation, relationships, creativity and life.

The inner man and woman: the Active and creative male side and the silent and watching female side.

The difference between acting out of ego and acting out of silence and emptiness.

Level of satisfaction: Our level of joy and satisfaction in the moment.

The polarity of life: Understanding the flow of life between poles, for example yes and no, light and darkness, the inner and outer world, love and aloneness, male and female qualities, sound and silence and life and death.

Satsang with Giten: Flowering of Godliness, May – July, 2019, in Stockholm

Giten's birthday, 2018, vitsippor+i profil

Flowering of Godliness

Living in a godly way

 

– Bliss, truth & Consciousness

 

Satsang with spiritual teacher and mystic Swami Dhyan Giten

 

Maj – juli, 2019, in Stockholm

ten Thursday evenings

 

“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 for satsang.”
  – Deva Emanuel

“I am so grateful for Giten’s explanation of my spiritual experience twelve years ago, which I did not understand. Nobody has been able to explain it with such a clarity before.”

– Ilka, participant in the satsang series “The Art of Life & Death”, Februari – April, 2019

 

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.

God is not a person. God is the ultimate state of consciousness.

Godliness is a state of being. Godliness is the ultimate flowering 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.

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

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.”

During these satsangs 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.

 

2. 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.

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.

Meditation creates a fear of death. You don’t know after death whether there is going to be a rejoicement, a resurrection or not. 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.

 

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.

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 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.”
