About the book

Here I present a collection of 209 Meditation Quotes (yes, 9 more than I promised in the title!). These are inspirational thoughts on meditation practice, insights, transcendence, and integrating meditation into your life. Some of these are from meditation masters (both ancient and modern), others are from famous philosophers, scientists, authors or celebrities.

These quotes don’t assume any belief on your part. Yet, they are here to cater for practitioners of all levels of experience and interest. Therefore, while some of them are more lighthearted and inspirational, others are more “old school”, for those that do meditation as a tool for Self-Knowledge and transcendence.

The quotes on this page are grouped by author; other than that, they are not in any particular order, nor are the authors in order.

You can download the free PDF of all these 209 quotes in the bottom of this page.

I have also published an iOS app (iPhone and iPad) with 607 quotes on meditation. It includes all these quotes and hundreds more. Download it here.

Mystery School: The Sacred Yes – 6-Month Transformation Programme with Swami Dhyan Giten, February – July 2015, in Stockholm

Innes, Giten och Mukta

Mystery School

Love – Awareness – Truth



During the Satsangs with Giten during the last 1,5 years in Stockholm, a deep silence and oneness have developed, and it felt like a modern mystery school of love and truth.

So Giten has decided to open Mystery School, which is a very loose organization to offer regular Satsang Intensives and weekends and longer programs for sincere seekers with a commitment for inner awakening and enlightenment. Some Satsang Intensives will only be open for seekers and meditators, who are part of the mystery school.

Deep within ourselves is the inner being, the authentic self, the inner silence and emptiness, where we already are one with Life.

Inituation, Toshen

The Sacred Yes: 6 Month Transformation Programme will be offered by the Mystery School, which will be open for both current participants of the Mystery School and for other seekers, who have a commitment to their spiritual growth and previous experience of meditation.

The Sacred Yes programme is a beautiful and mystical journey into our inner being during 6 months, where Giten uses silence, words and awareness to help us rediscover our authentic inner being, the capacity to surrender to life, where we find a joyful, alive and expanding relationship to Existence.

This program is an invitation to people who have sufficient life experience to discover their own authentic inner being.

In his past lives, Giten has travelled through many spiritual paths. In this programme he uses philosophy and spiritual methods from many traditions – Vedanta and The Upanishads, Patanjali, Tao och yoga, Buddhism, Sufism, Christianity, the seven chakras and seven energy bodies, modern psychology and Classic Eastern methods for meditation and awareness to guide the individual seeker in a way that relates to the seeker’s own spiritual path from path lives. This makes it easier to take new steps on the spiritual journey.

It is an invitation to the sincere seeker of truth.

The Sacred Yes consists of two Satsang series with Giten during February – July on Thursday evenings in Stockholm. The first Satsang series focuses on The Path of Wisdom – The Heart of Tibetan Buddhism and the second Satsang series will focus on Jesus, where Giten will talk about Jesus, the man, Jesus, the revolutionary and Jesus, the mystic. Giten will talk on Christ, not on Christianity. Giten makes a clear distinction between the rebel called Jesus Christ and the religion that followed after him – Christianity. Giten was a disciple of Jesus in a former Life, where he was thrown to the lions in Colosseum in Rome.

“I love when Giten talks about Jesus.”

– Prem Mukta

The Sacred Yes also consists of two 2-Day Satsang Weekends with Giten in 11-12 April on Tibetan Buddhism and in June on Jesus.

The 2-day Satsang Weekend is Giten’s invitation to everyone, who have the inner thirst and longing for a direct recognition that our heart is the door to our being, our inner “yes”-quality, our authentic self, the meditative quality within, the inner source of love and truth, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life.


The 2-day Satsang Weekend with Giten is an opportunity for a direct insight and realization of being. To meet our inner being means to witness and affirm everything that we already are. It is to meet that that which is already perfect within ourselves.

The Sacred Yes also consists of three individual consultations with Giten.

The Satsang Baby: Yoga Innes

Innes, Giten och MuktaInnes ock skrattande Mukta

 Innes och Mukta
The Satsang Baby:Yoga Innes
Giten ended a beautiful 2-day Satsang weekend in Stockholm on February 7-8, where a new born baby attended a few hours per day with her mother, Prem Mukta. This child has attended Satsang with Giten for almost 9 months, while she was still in her mothers belly, to get a taste of meditation before she was born 4 weeks ago.

During the 2-day Satsang weekend, Giten gave her an informal energy darshan, which was an initiation and a welcoming back to the spiritual path. He also talked about her name and her spiritual path in life by saying that yoga is her path in life, and that Innes – the personal name given by her mother, which means “an island” – could be summarized in the following meaning of her spiritual name Yoga Innes: being an island of silence through yoga and union.
The word “yoga” means union and Giten said that yoga can described as basic physical yoga, but that her path yoga also includes the last step of Yoga: samadhi, disappearing into the silence and being in union with life. He recommended her mother Prem Mukta to allow and encourage her to just be, to disappear into the silence, and he also recommended a meditation for her and the child to just be together in silence and meditation. Prem Mukta also commented that meditation is the most beautiful gift you can give.
During the three hours that Yoga Innes attended the first Satsang day, she was totally content and silent. Her mother Prem Mukta also commented that after the first Satsang day, she got the first smile of utter contentment from Yoga Innes.
Prem Mukta also said about Innes: Innes showed to be the person that I had imagined. Secure, strong, wise and extremely communicative.
Giten also said that Yoga Innes is already a developed soul and an advanced seeker and meditator, and that she has already been a seeker and meditator for many lives, so he said that he was not surprised that she has already participated in Satsang while she was still in her mothers belly to receive a first taste of meditation and come back to the spiritual path.
Giten also said that Muktas own participation in Satsang and her own commitment to her spiritual growth had created the spiritual maturity to be able to attract a conscious soul like Innes. He also said that Innes had chosen Mukta as her mother, and that Mukta had also chosen Innes through her own spiritual growth.
Giten said that Innes is now a pure being, a pure sky, but at a certain point she has to develop the mind, which will create a split between the being and the mind. But he said that the influence of her mothers spiritual understanding together with Innes own previous experience on the spiritual path, will allow her to stay in contact with her inner being, the meditative quality within, and make this transition a conscious experience.
Giten also said that it is quite astonishing that she attends Satsang for almost 9 months in her mothers belly – and it takes her four weeks after being born to be back in Satsang.
Below you will find a collection of Giten quotes on children and spiritual parenting.
“A child comes from God, a child is a gift from God, but a child is not our possession.

Give the child unconditional love and freedom. Respect the child,

the child has its own soul. The
child has its own way.
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“Give the child a taste of

meditation by creating a climate and atmosphere of love acceptance and silence.”

“The most precious gift that you can give to the child is 

unconditional love and

acceptance, which

allows the child to discover his

own inner being, his authentic

self, his own freedom

to be himself.”

“A small child is like

an open sky. The name of the

child can either be expansive or limiting. It can either create an

expansion or contraction of


-Swami Dhyan Giten

“The mother is the child’s first

relationship, his whole world,

his existence.

If there is love in the

relationship between the Child

and the mother, the child learns

to trust himself, to trust others

and to trust life.

If there is no love in the

relationship between

the mother and the child, the

child learns to distrust himself,

to distrust others and to distrust


– Swami Dhyan Giten

“Love is the radiance, the fragrance of knowing oneself, of being oneself.

Love is overflowing joy.

Love is when you have seen that you are not separate from Existence.

Love is not a relationship, love is a state of being.

Fear is the opposite of love. In love, one expands. In fear, one shrinks. In fear, one becomes closed. In love, one opens.

In fear, one doubts. In love, one trusts.

Do not be afraid, this Existence is not your enemy. This existence loves you, this existence is ready to support you in any way.

Trust and you will feel a new overflowing energy. That energy is love. That energy wants to bless the whole existence. Because of this energy, one feels blessed.

Love is a deep desire to bless the whole Existence.”
~ Swami Dhyan Giten
