The Upanishads are the essence of all religion. Really, they are not for the beginners, they are for those who have left the beginning far behind. They are for those who have been struggling for a long time – meditating, searching, inquiring. Only then can the Upanishads become helpful.
The Upanishads, the sacred writings of Vedic wisdom, predate recorded history. It is the first spiritual books written on this Earth. Since they were revealed to the Rishis, the enlightened masters, of the Vedic civilization some 5,000 to 10,000 years ago, many have come to regard them as perhaps the greatest of all the books in the history of world religions: the work that contains the kernel of the mystical and philosophical truths that form the basis of all religious thinking today.
The Upanishads are the most beautiful books ever written. The Upanishads includes both the path of meditation and the path of meditation which are the two paths to samadhi and enlightenment. Giten will discuss The Upanishads in such a way that the reader can feel a sense of oneness beyond the apparent contradictions.
This satsang weekend with Giten is an introduction to the essentials of Vedic wisdom for blissful living and the eternal wisdom of the Vedic enlightened rishis. Giten will endeavor to explain not just the grand design of the universe, but also how the the teachings of the Upanishads can be used to lead a blissful life amid the present day chaos, stress and confusion.
The basis of this satsang weekend with Giten is a direct encounter with spirituality. There are no doctrines in it. Instead this satsang series is full of practical wisdom for those ready to embark on what has been called the journey to the source, to the source of their own being.
In this satsang weekend Giten takes the Upanishads and responds to it in a way that helps present-day seekers penetrate their unconscious and find the truth within themselves. This uncovering of the self is the ultimate alchemy.
In this satsang weekend Giten describes, step by step, the search within, the search for the essence, for what is divine within man. This essence is variously known as the self, the atman, the soul, in the ancient teachings of earlier Masters.
Giten says that he warn you in advance that to involve oneself in the teachings of the Upanishads is like playing with fire. An Upanishad cannot be understood without you also becoming transformed.
In understanding the Upanishads, doors will open to the most profound understanding known to the genius of man. The Upanishads is the secret of secrets, the mystery within all mysteries, the essence of essences.
Contained in this satsang weekend are many alchemical secrets—secrets of “the ultimate alchemy,” the alchemy of purifying man’s gross nature into the pure gold of cosmic consciousness. Many meditation techniques are shown along the way, many efforts to make us aware of our unconscious condition, the source of all our dis-ease.
Giten will also talk about Vedanta, which is the world’s oldest meditation path. Vedanta is the philosophy of self-realization and samadhi. Vedanta is a philosophy of Self-realization and samadhi, and its practice is Self-realization through yoga, awareness and meditation. Vedanta revolves around one premise: re-establish the silence at the core of our being. In Vedanta, silence is understood as our own human consciousness – which resides in our hearts and pervades everything in the universe. Vedanta sees pure unity or oneness as the supreme principle in existence. Vedanta meditation aims at returning to this original state of unity and oneness with life, in which all beings abide in the Self within the heart. It takes us direct to the divine presence in the heart.
Vedanta says that the individual soul is one with God. Vedanta says that our true Self, Atman, the inner being, the soul, is our divine nature. The same consciousness that resides at the core of our being pervades the entire universe. It pervade in the flowers, the animals, the stones, the mountains and the stars. To know ourselves is to know God and to become one with God.
Vedanta is generally private, emphasizing individual practice more than group practice. However meditation sessions do occur as part of the satsangs or gatherings that are common in the tradition.
Giten unveils the secrets of Vedanta meditation from which all other meditation systems have emerged. Vedanta is the famous “direct path to enlightenment” of Vedic science, the world’s oldest science of consciousness. Vedic science offers the wisdom of the ancient enlightened masters of India. Vedanta, the path of self-realization, is the spiritual support and goal of the related Vedic disciplines like Ayurveda, yoga and Vedic astrology. Vedanta is the essence and the end of the ancient wisdom of Vedic science of consciousness. Giten will reveal the deepest secrets of the ancient wisdom of Vedanta, which reveals the steps to meditation, spirituality and Samadhi. Giten will also talk about the Vedantic perspective on the important prime issues of the spiritual path, the challenges of awareness, the practice of meditation and the Vedantic view of consciousness and cosmic evolution.
Satsang with Giten is a meeting in love, truth and silence. Satsang with Giten is a direct insight and realization of being.
These satsang weekend also works as a prolonged shaktipat (transmission of spiritual energy), which both creates immediate result – together with effect that becomes obvious during the coming weeks and months after the intensive. When Giten pursued an advanced training in spiritual healing in USA 1984, he was told that he had the capacity to become a seventh chakra healer, a spiritual healer, to act as a catalyst and channel for spiritual energy from the seventh chakra through the heart. The last 30 years has meant to develop and deepen this capacity to an instrument of subtle catalytic effect, which Giten uses in this Satsang series.
Satsang with Giten gathers people from all walks of life. During the last two satsangs seekers and meditators, psychotherapists, medical doctors, nurses, Ayurvedic healers and doctors, film makers from the Swedish television and musicians and music teachers have gathered.
