about being friend to a flower or a tree

Photography Beyond Imagination



Try as a meditation, to be with a stone, a flower or a tree, and you will find that they have consciousness.

If you become friend with a tree, you will find that the tree will welcome you as a friend. The tree will be happy to see you.
-Swami Dhyan Giten

TopFamousQuotes quotes Giten on the Seeker
 “Only when the seeker is lost, the truth is there. Seek, and you will miss. Seek not, and you will find.
The very seeking becomes a barrier to truth, to the ultimate experience.”
Author: Swami Dhyan Giten
 “When I did a therapist education in USA 1984, one of the course leaders – who had given personal and spiritual guidance to thousands of seekers of truth from all over the world, and who I consider to be one of the best spiritual therapists in the world – said that I was going to get enlightened, that I would “disappear into the silence”. I did not really understand what he meant then, and it was totally absurd for me when other course participants congratulated me afterwards. The thought that I was going to be enlightened was totally absurd for me. For me enlightenment was something that happened to special and chosen persons like Osho, Buddha, Jesus, Lao-Tzu and Krishnamurti. I did not feel either special or chosen. I did not feel worthy of being enlightened.”

 on Love

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.
– Swami Dhyan Giten

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.
– Swami Dhyan Giten

A Book for Life: Swami Dhyan Giten’s book “Presence – Working from Within. The Psychology of Being

Presence, lulu, ebok





Spiritual therapy works basically because we are all one. This book presents a new dimension of psychotherapy and spiritual healing with a base in meditation.

Working with people from love, truth and wholeness is the psychology of being, the science of inner transformation. The psychology of being begins where Western psychology end. It is basically not a question of psychology; it is a question of being.

The psychology of being begins where we are and takes us to that which we can be.

This book is written both for people who want to discover their own inner being and for those who work with other people and wants to discover a new love, clarity, depth and inspiration in their professional work.

 The different topics of the book are combined with practical exercises

“Presence – Working from Within” is more than a book about presence, but a manual in the art of unlocking the Soul’s Presence within the Personality.”

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN, spiritual teacher and author, has more than 30 years of experience in individual counseling and in teaching awareness and meditation. He is trained in both modern psychology and in classic Eastern methods for awareness and meditation in USA, Italy, Sweden and India.

Giten experienced his first satori, his first glimpse of spiritual awakening, when he was 9 years old. This created a deep thirst and longing in his heart and being to return to this natural and effortless experience of being one with the Whole.

Swami Dhyan Giten has dedicated his life to teach the art of awareness and meditation. He conducts individual consultations, seminars and courses internationally. His quotes, articles and books have touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.

Since he began to meditate when he was 15 years old, he has dedicated his life to the study and exploration of the inner journey in order to move out of his own way, to be in a flow, and to discover the authentic inner being, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life. He does not belong to any spiritual group or tradition; he is only interested to explore what it means to live with open eyes.

In 1982, when Giten was 23 years old, he was directed by the Divine presence in a trance session with the American trance chancellor Lin David Martin: “You have listened to your intuition, to your true inner voice, more than most. You have been searching for the contact with the Spirit for a long time and now it is beginning to manifest on the outer plane. You have been gifted many times in previous embodiments and now everything will come rather easy for you. I want you to put your energy into the lives of others, because you can”.

He is author of the best-selling book in Swedish “Meditationens Sång – Om meditation, relationer och kreativitet” (Solrosens forlag, 2001, available from Internet book store Adlibris:, and “The Silent Whisperings of the Heart – An Introduction to Giten’s Approach to Life” (2008, available in paperback at Internet book store Lulu: and as free e-book at, “Presence – Working from Within.

Initiation with Giten
“It is astonishing to realize that growing up actually means to become one with Existence. It means to find the whole Existence within myself, it means to discover that Existence is alive in my own heart and being.

The song of a bird echoes my own inner voice, the beauty of a flower reflects my own inner beauty, a dog becomes an expression of my own unconditional love and friendship, the majestic mountains create an exstatic joy, and I discover all the shining stars of the sky within my own heart.
It is to realize that the whole Existence is alive, and that the underlying thread of consciousness is God.”
― Swami Dhyan Giten
Inituation, Toshen
 “I could not have wished for a more beautiful initiation.
I felt such a love for everybody after the initiation.”
– Prem Mukta, who was initiated by Giten on June, 12, 2014
Initiering, Lotta + Giten
Initiation into freedom is basically a way of living life consciously, in meditation and celebration, a life lived in oneness with Existence, inspired by the vision of spiritual teacher Swami Dhyan Giten.
Initiation into Freedom is an experience of the heart. It is an initiation into the ancient path of truth, an initiation into the invisible path.
Initiation + Kalyani + Giten
Initiation into Freedom is a sincere commitment to yourself and to your own spiritual growth. It is a statement that the most important thing in your life is meditation, to become more aware, more conscious and more awake. Initiation into Freedom is a surrender to the truth of your own being.

Initiation, bara Kalyani
Initiation into Freedom happens inside the being of the individual. It is conscious choice of the sincere seeker of love and truth, who have a deep commitment to truth. Previous experience of meditation is recommended.
Initiation med Lotta, bara Lotta
Giten has initiated people to the path of truth with people who surrendered to him in their hearts through creating an inner initiation in their inner being for 30 years, but he has not formally initiated people before. But now the time seems ripe to begin to initiate sincere seekers of truth.
Initiation into freedom is not a religion or an organization, it is a statement by the individual. Initiation into freedom is based on the Indian sannyasin tradition, but it is not a reunciation from the world. It is a life affirmative confirmation that embraces all aspects of life, meditation, relationships and creativity.
Initiation ceremonies will be performed in connection to Satsang evenings with Giten. Initiation can also be done by mail.
In initiation into freedom, Giten will observe you and find out:
1. What type you are
2. How much work you have done in your past lives
3. Where you are right at this moment in your spiritual growth
4. At what center you are functioning right now
5. Decision about meditative methods that will be helpful for you
Based on this observation, Giten will give you a new name, your spiritual name, with a meaning that will denote the pathway that you will travel on and an individual quality that will be be a guidance on your spiritual path. You will also receive a necklace symbolizing the oneness of life.
“I do not go to Giten because he belongs to a certain spiritual group or tradition, I go to Giten because he is a spiritual teacher like Sai Baba or Eckhart Tolle.”
– Toshen, Stockholm
“Satsang with Giten has put me on the path againand so much is opening up.”
– Toshen, Stockholm
