“Satsang with Giten
has put me on the path again
–and so much is opening up.”
– Toshen, Stockholm
The first Satsang evening on the theme “Tantra – The Way of the Heart” on March 20 was a very strong Satsang.
Giten began this Satsang by lecturing on “Tantra – The Way of the Heart: Mahamudra – The Ultimate Experience”.
The lecture was recorded live and will be available in Swedish on YouTube and Grooveshark.
Below you will also find a collection of quotes in English from lecture.
The Satsang ended with 40 minutes of silent Satsang a meeting from heart to heart, a meeting from being to being.
Tantra – The Way of the Heart:
Mahamudra – The Ultimate Experience
A collection of quotes from the Satsang with Swami Dhyan Giten on March, 20, 2014
Mahamudra, the ultimate experience, is not an experience at all, because the experiencer is lost. The “I”, the ego is lost.
The ultimate experience is more like an experiencing. It is a process. It begins, but it never ends. You enter it, but you can never possess it. It is a deep merging and melting with Existence. It is a oneness. It is like a drop dropping into the Ocean.
When something happens to you that is beyond words, life is happening to you. When the Ultimate is happening to you, you are beyond words.
Mahamudra is the ultimate experience, the ultimate mystery. Mahamudra means a total orgasm with the Universe.
In love, you can sometimes feel a melting and merging with the other person, and the two becomes one. The physical bodies are still separate, but something beyond the bodies creates a oneness. It opens a spiritual dimension.
Only when the experiencer is lost, the experience is there.
Only when the seeker is lost, the experience is there.
Seek, and you will miss. Seek not, and you will find. The very seeking becomes a barrier to the ultimate experience.
Nobody ever reaches to God, God comes to you when you are open and receptive, when you are ready.
The way to become ready is trust, to develop a trust in life. The heart is the door to trust.
The deepest realization is that your being is a non-being. It is a nothing, a vast emptiness without boundaries. It is a no-self.
The feeling of self, of “I” is false.
When you come to the ultimate experience, when you come to your deepest core, you are no one. You are a vast emptiness.
You can become afraid in meditation, because the deeper you go in meditation, the more you realize that you are nobody, a nothingness. It is a death of the ego. That is why people become afraid of meditation.
To attain to Mahamudra, the ultimate experience, is to attain to all.
When you are not, you become the whole.
If you love another person, you have to become a no-self, a nothing. When you love, you have to become a nobody. When you are a nobody, love happens. If you remain somebody, love never happens.
One becomes afraid of love, because love opens the inner emptiness.
Love is not an effort. If love is an effort, it is not love.
It is the same case with the ultimate experience, it happens when you do not make an effort. Then you can simply float with the river to the Ocean.
