Satsang with Giten during the Autumn 2014 in Stockholm:
Buddha: The Emptiness of the Heart
“The inner emptiness is the door
– Swami Dhyan Giten
The Satsang series Buddha – The Emptiness of the Heart with Giten is an opportunity to discover the “empty heart,” beyond feelings and sentiment, the door to the inner Buddha, the door to God, that exists within ourselves.
.“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.
First this brought up fear, but now I am enjoying this meditation of disappering into the silence and to be nobody. I have started experimenting with this phenomenon to understand how to consciously go beyond the ego: yesterday when I took a cofee at a restaurant, I consciously turned my attention within and disappeared into the silence, which was like finding an inner source of bliss.
In aloneness, I experiment with being consciously alone as a door to be egoless. In conscious aloneness, the ego can not function. In aloneness, your are not. When I am walking, I consciously experiment with being with Existence without having the mind constantly commenting. I try to just be wordlessly with the people and situations that I meet on my walk.
When I can just be with Existence, it opens the door to be one with the Whole.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten,

SATSANG WITH GITEN: ANCIENT, POWERFUL AND BEYOND CONTROL
“The silent Satsang yesterday felt strong. Almost immediately when we sat down in silent Satsang, I was filled with an energy so strong that it felt like I was surrounded by an almost physical energy field.
I almost felt like I was going to levitate, like the energy was so compact that I could not sit still on the floor. It was like the Satsang danced, it was living its own life. It felt ancient, powerful and beyond control.
And in the middle of everything, a loud and wild laughter grow, which I had to fight to keep back. It felt like I would never stop laughing if I began.
When Giten sounded the bell that the Satsang was over, I had to concentrate to come back in one piece, remind the body of the frame, remind the head of the room, of the here and now.
After a while, it worked, and the effect was that I felt happy, calm and full of love after Satsang.”
– Deva Mukta, participant in Satsang with Giten
“It is beautiful that it is possible to meet in this way. My name means “absolute contentment”, and that is what happens in Satsang with Giten.”
