“Despite 2000 years of evolution
 in modern times, we have still not
 managed to develop the
 intelligence to create a society
 that knows what love is. Our
 society is still not a civilization, it
 is still primitive and barbaric.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“The most important thing that
 is happening in the world right
 now  is the emerging of the new
With the new man, a great
 revolution will bring the soul
in. Man will not just be a mind, a
 psychological being, he will be a
 spiritual being.
This new consciousness, this new
 being, is the most important
 thing, which is happening in the
 world today. But the old man will
be against the emerging of the
 new man, the old man will be
 against this new consciousness.
The new man is a matter of Life
 and death, it is a question of the
 survival of the whole earth. It is
 matter of survival of
 consciousness, of survival of life
The old man has become utterly
 destructive. The old man is
 preparing for a global suicide
 right now. Rather than allowing
 the new man, the old man would
 rather destroy the whole earth,
 destroying life itself.
The old destructive man is
 preparing right now for a third
 world war. The global economical
 and political elite and the war
 industrial complex in the U.S.,
 which runs the foreign policy of
 the U.S, is right now promoting
 for a third world war.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“Wars are an outdated way to try
 to solve conflicts, which are
 unacceptable in the 21st century.
 Instead of trying to conquer
 yourself, wars are an unconscious
 way to try to conquer life. Wars 
are an unconscious way to try to
 conquer death, which is the basic
 fear in the West.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“Sweden is not one of the
 countries that will walk in the
 front line in developing the new
 man, the new consciousness for
the 21st century.
Sweden consists of separate
 minds that do not allow each
 other to grow, and whose focus
 are to mantain status quo, which
 creates a country without joy.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten

“There is a very simple

 relationship between increased

 socioeconomic rifts in the society

 and increased violence,

criminality, war, increased lack of

 trust between people, health

 problems and social exclusion

 – but it seems to be very difficult

 for people to understand this

 simple relationship.”

— Swami Dhyan Giten

“The climate change is the
 greatest challenge for humanity.
The current climate change is an
 outer mirror of our inner
It is an outer mirror of our
 attitude to try to conquer nature,
 instead of being in harmony with
 nature, but in the end the part
 can never conquer the whole.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten

“It is not many things that modern psychology agrees upon, but all the different approaches of psychology agrees on one thing: that people in groups become more stupid. Individually people are more intelligent, because they have to take their own responsibility, but in a group they do not have to take the same responsibility.
The two basic power strategies to try to manipulate and gain control over another person are: silencing and attacking. Silencing means to not listen to, to exclude or ignore and not respect a person. Attack can both mean to attack a person directly or to try to discredit a person through lies, to ridicule a person or by spreading malicious rumours.
All organizations are more or less dysfunctional. In a dysfunctional group, the members of the group play three different roles: agressor, denier and victim. The agressor is the role that attack and ridicule people, the denier never knows what is going on, there is “nobody at home”, and the victim is the resultat of these two roles.
It is always easier to follow a group without awareness, than to follow your own heart, to trust your own intelligence, love, truth, silence and creativity.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
