During the third Satsang with Giten in Stockholm on Thursday, October, 3, Giten lectured about the third step of Vedanta’s 7 steps to enlightenment. Emanuel Sjoberg, musician and student to Giten since 5 years, commented on the lecture that words can really be healing.
The third step of Vedanta, of sadhana, of spiritual discipline, is non-attachment and desirelessness as a basic step to enlightenment. Non-attachment is a basic step for a seeker of love and truth.
 The mind has the capacity to become attached to things and to people, for example sex, feelings, family, power, money, fame, love, relationships and spirituality.

A wavering mind can not get non-attached. Only a non-wavering mind can get non-attached. Ordinarily the mind is wavering and moves from one thought to another.
Concentration means that the mind has to be trained to retain one thought, one object, for longer periods of time.
Unawareness is attachment and desire, awareness is non-attachment and desirelessness.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“The two first steps of Vedanta is a preparation to be with somebody who knows, it is a preparation to be with a teacher of meditation. Before you have reached the third step, you will not be ripe to be with a teacher in meditation.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“The third step Non-attachment includes karma. Karma is the actions of the past, which is accumulated in the mind. Karma can both be positive and negative merit. The karma can be of three qualities: 1. Karma that is activated during the day 2. Karma that is activated during one life and 3. The accumulated karma of all previous lives. This accumulated karma governs the circle of birth and death.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
 
The lecture was followed by 30 minutes of Satsang with Giten in silence and meditation where a deep presence and silence is developing. “A strong session”, concluded the participant Emanuel Sjoberg.
“On the third step, you begin to get glimpses of the authentic inner being. You begin to get glimpses of enlightenment, which in Japan is called satori.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
 
During the autumn 2013, there will be an opportunity for open Satsang with Giten in Stockholm.
