During the seventh Satsang with Giten in Stockholm on Thursday, October, 31, Giten lectured about the seventh step of Vedanta’s 7 steps to enlightenment.
The sixth step of Vedanta, of sadhana, of spiritual discipline, is The Grace of God, Samadhi, Enlightenment, The Ocean.
Giten opened this satsang with the questions to the participants about what enlightenment means to them, what commitment they have to achieve enlightenment and what desires and attachments that stand in their way of achieving enlightenment.
One participant commented that the challenge for him with enlightenment was to say “yes” to the truth of the moment, another participant commented that the basic fear of enlightenment for her was to be alone, a third participant commented that the challenge for her with enlightenment was to be in the flow of love and not getting caught up by fear, and a fourth participant commented that enlightenment for him was to trust the flow of life.
The lecture was followed by 40 minutes of Satsang with Giten in silence and meditation, where a deep silence and oneness emerged in the group. It felt like a modern mystery school of love and truth was emerging, which made Giten’s heart dance with joy.
A participant also commented that her headache just disappeared during the Satsang.
“The seventh step is the Upanishadic mystery. A mystery that can only be lived, not explained.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
