Only Truth Remains

I have always had the capacity to go within myself and to discover the silence within, the inner meditative quality, the inner source of love and truth – the inner language of silence. Now I also notice that this silence is going deeper, and that I go beyond the ego and disappear into the silence. 

– Swami Dhyan Giten

During the fifth Satsang with Giten in Stockholm on Thursday, October, 17, Giten lectured about the fifth step of Vedanta’s 7 steps to enlightenment. 
The fifth step of Vedanta, of sadhana, of spiritual discipline, is Ego disappears, all desires disappears, the outer world disappears – only truth remains. 
 
“On the fifth step, the mind and the worldly desires of the seeker disappears – and only truth remains. A seeker on the fifth step appears introverted, tired and sleepy. On the fifth step, the seeker appears like a zombie, the seeker appears to be tired and drowsy even if he performs his daily activities. It can be difficult to function in the world. This step is a birth of a new consciousness, a new being. It is to fall into your original nature, your original being. The fifth step can be described as eyes without bottom, eyes as deep as existence itself.” 
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“The fifth step belongs to the dreaming consciousness. There are 4 levels of consciousness:
1. Waking consciousness, mind, the surface of the personality
2. Dreaming consciousness, mind
3. Sleeping consciousness, unconscious being
4. Turiya, the fourth state, conscious being, samadhi, enlightenment.” 
– Swami Dhyan Giten
The lecture was followed by 40 minutes of Satsang with Giten in silence and meditation. 
“On the fifth step, only truth remains. Truth can be described as that which never changes, as opposed to Maya, illusion, dream, separation from life, which is that which always changes, for example the mind, the body and worldly desires.”
 
– Swami Dhyan Giten
