During the second Satsang with Giten in Stockholm on Thursday, September, 26, Giten lectured about the second step of Vedanta’s 7 steps to enlightenment.
The second step focus on meditation, understanding the mind and on understanding what is important in life, on learning to distinguish between what is essential and non-essential, what is loving and what is not loving, what is true and what is not true, in our lives. This is the basic step for a sincere seeker of love and truth.
“The step of  of Vedanta’s 7 steps to enlightenment is right listening, right remembering, right conduct, right contemplation and right meditation .  The second step is about understanding the mind, and realizing that we are not the mind and the body.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“When the mind is totally silent, then  you can listen. Right listening is to silence the inner monologue, to silence the constant inner chattering. When a constant inner chattering is going on, you can not listen. The first step of right listening is to be silent and empty.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten 
“Right remembering means to throw the rubbish out, and only keep the essential, the true, the real. It is about learning to distinguish between the essential and the non-essential, to learn to distinguish between what is real and what is not real, to distinguish between what is truth and what is not truth and to learn to distinguish between what is loving behaviour and what is not loving behaviour. It is the first step for a sincere seeker of love and truth”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“Right conduct is about learning how to behave rightly. When you behave wrongly, your energy moves in wrong directions. Right behaviour means to be always loving, blissful, in your behaviour – and not unnecessarily hurt other people. Hurting others people just means that you are hurting yourself.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten


The second step of Vedanta also includes right contemplation and right meditation, and Giten also lectured about what meditation is.

“Right meditation happens in the moments when the thoughts stop. It happens when the mind stops. Meditation is no-mind. Right meditation means a moment when the mind ceases, which will become Samadhi, enlightenment.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten 
 
The lecture was followed by 40 minutes of Satsang with Giten in silence and meditation where a deep presence and silence is developing.
 
During the autumn 2013, there will be an opportunity for open Satsang with Giten in Stockholm.
