SATSANG WITH GITEN:

BLESSINGS FROM INDIA

Spiritual ‘Satsangs’ are highly glorified, throughout the spiritual world, and also considered as inevitable, for sincere seekers.

I fervently pray God, for grand success of glorious ‘satsang’, with Rev. Swami Dhyan Giten. The participants, I feel, are really lucky.

Love Yourself &  Watch

From satsang with Giten,

29 August, 2019, in Stockholm

This is one of the most significant teachings of Buddha.

Love yourself and watch are Buddha’s two steps of meditation.

Just as food is nourishment for the body; love is nourishment for the soul. Without nourishment for the soul, the body becomes weak. Without nourishment of love, the soul becomes weak.

To make you spiritually weak, all the religious traditions have taught you to love others, but don’t love yourself.

All the cultures and civilizations has taught you not to love yourself, because if a man cannot love himself he cannot love anybody else either.

And no state, church and vested interests has ever wanted you to love yourself, because love give you a strong soul, so that nobody can exploit, manipulate and control you.

You have been made afraid of being in love with yourself, which is the first step of love.

A man who loves himself respects himself.

And a man who loves and respects himself loves and respects others.

He becomes aware that we are not different: we are one.

In the foundation, we are part of one nature.

A man who loves himself starts overflowing, so that his love starts reaching others.

You love other people, you love animals, flowers and trees.

Love makes you a spiritual force.

Love yourself, says Buddha, this can transform the whole world.

Love begins with yourself, and then it can spread.

Love yourself, says Buddha, and then he adds, and watch.

That is Buddha’s word for meditation.

The first step is to love yourself, and the second step is to watch.

Love is the first step to know yourself.

If you do not love yourself, you will never know yourself.

Love your body, love your mind and love your soul.

Watching is meditation. It is Buddha’s name for meditation. He says: Be aware, be alert and be conscious.

The first step in meditation is to love yourself, to respect and accept yourself as you are.

The second step in meditation is to watch – watch when you take a walk, watch when you eat and watch when you spend time with friends.

– Swami Dhyan Giten

QUOTES FROM GITEN DURING SATSANG WEEKEND 

15-17 NOVEMBER, 2019, IN STOCKHOLM

BE A LIGHT TO YOURSELF

“The last words of Buddha were: Be a light to yourself. You are born with a light within you. You are enough to yourself. You are sufficient to yourself. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you.

Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of your own consciousness. This message of Buddha functions as a reminder to the seeker of truth – on the path to enlightenment.” 

INTUITION, THE INNER GUIDE, THE MASTER WITHIN

Our intuition is the inner teacher,

The old Indian scriptures say that the outer spiritual teacher is helpful to find your own intuition, your own inner teacher. 

BLISS

Happiness is the meaning and goal of life.

LOVE

The divine way is to remain true to love.

Remain true to love and remain true to life.

Love and meditation are one of the most essential messages. Love and meditation should go hand in hand.

Only two meditators can live together in love. 

EGOLESSNESS

“The truth is that egolessness is the door to bliss.

The moment you are egoless, you are nothing, you become a door to the divine.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

Satsang with Giten,

February – April, 2020, in Stockholm

Ten Thursday evenings: 6, 13, 20, 27 februari. 5, 12, 19, 26 mars. 2, 9 april, 2020.
1500:-

“Giten is real. Authentic on his way and self. A loving man, who knows the science of truth, love and life.

– Prem Pathik, India

 

The Free Academy and Devadas, spiritual leader for Ljusbacken (The Hill of Light) – which was Giten’s first ashram in beautiful Halsingland in the north of Sweden when he was 15 years old – congratulates Giten for spreading meditation.


“Satsang with Giten is a taste of the eternal, a taste of the timeless. It can feel like we sat for 3 hours, while we only sat for 40 minutes.


I was so afraid that I would lose the silence that I had found during satsang in India, but I found the silence again in satsang with Giten. Samadhi is like dying. The fear that I experienced in the beginning in satsang when I went into samadhi, when I disappeared into the silence, has now disappeared totally.

Satsang with Giten is like coming home. I went into samadhi three times during a satsang weekend with Giten – and I also got a map and an understanding for how to go into samadhi again.

Before I started to attend satsang, I did not think that enlightenment was possible, but now I feel that it is possible. Satsang with Giten confirms what I have really always known.

– Padma

The Mystery School was born in the autumn, 2019, in Stockholm. Satyama Padma, participant in satsang with Giten said that satsang with Giten is a mystery school, which she felt blessed to participate in.

What is a mystery school? The Mystery school teaches you how to live. The whole work of The Mystery School is to help you to find yourself, to find your authentic inner being. The work of the mystery school is to wake the student up and to allow him to be himself.

Satyama Padma, said that her experience of spiritual organizations is that people tries to impose themselves on others and aggressively tries make each other somebody else, but with Giten she found a freedom to be herself.

The satsang participant Samarpan also commented that Giten’s quality of allowing people to be themselves is a rare quality. The satsang participant Deva Emanuel commented that he would not have stayed in satsang with Giten if it was not for the atmosphere and climate of love. He also says that satsang with Giten is a mystery school.

Giten’s mystery school is a place, where love is taught. It is a place where love is nourished. It is to make your love pure – without ego, power and domination – just a sheer gift of joy a delight in the being of the other person.

The mystery school is the way of the Upanishads, which Giten has been teaching for the last 4 years. The word Upanishad means “to be near, to be close”, which is the heart of satsang. The word Upanishad means to be in the presence of the spiritual teacher and to take in his silence. That is the essence of the work of a mystery school. The mystery school manages to create a certain field of energy and if you are receptive, if you are available, if you are ready to go on the journey of the unknown.

The spiritual teacher simply provides a system to enter slowly into the deep waters and ultimately to enter a stage, where you disappear into the ocean; you become the ocean itself. To become a part of a mystery school is a great benediction. It is very difficult to find a mystery school to find people who are searching and not imposing themselves on each other, but only helping each other if the need is there.

The whole work of the mystery school to let your ego dissolve and to help you into a deep let-go with existence. To be initiated into mystery school simply means that now you are taking the first step towards actualizing your potential for freedom. He is Buddha, he is a Christ; then he lives in freedom.

In this satsang series we will also explore five keys to spiritual maturity:

1. Be a light to yourself: The last words of Gautama the Buddha on the earth were: Be a light unto yourself. Do not follow others, because following creates stupidity. You are born with a light within you. You are enough to yourself. You are sufficient to yourself. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you. Nobody else can guide you, nobody else can become a model for your life because you are unique. Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of our own consciousness. This very message of Buddha functions as a reminder to all the seekers of truth – on the path of enlightenment.

  1. Intuition, the inner guide, the inner master:  Creating a trust in yourself and in your intuition, your inner guide, the inner master.  Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you.  You have to be silent, quiet, so you can listen to the still small voice within you, and then follow it. Wherever it leads, it is good. Go in deep trust, following your own voice.

 Intuition means something that arises from within inner being. Intuition is the voice of being and consciousness. It is your potential, which is why it is called intuition. Unless you have your intuition, unless you have your own wisdom , your own vision, your own clarity, your own eyes to see, you will not be able to understand the mystery of existence.

To give meaning to your life, to your heart, existence has given intuition to your heart. Out of intution arises the possibilities of art, of love, of friendship – intuition will lead you to wisdom, to enlightenment. Then your life is a life of immense light, joy and serenity.

Intuition makes a man wise- call it enlightenment or awakening, those are simply different names from wisdom.
Intuition brings meaning to life, joy, blessings. Intuition gives you the secrets of existence, brings a tremendous silence, which cannot be disturbed and which cannot be taken away from you.

3. Love, freedom and aloneness: One of the most significant teachings of Buddha is to love yourself and watch. Love yourself and watch are Buddha’s two steps of meditation. Just as food is nourishment for the body; love is nourishment for the soul. Without nourishment for the soul, the body becomes weak. Without nourishment of love, the soul becomes weak.

To make you spiritually weak, all the religious traditions have taught you to love others, but don’t love yourself. All the cultures and civilizations has taught you not to love yourself, because if a man cannot love himself he cannot love anybody else either. And no state, church and vested interests has ever wanted you to love yourself, because love give you a strong soul, so that nobody can exploit, manipulate and control you.

You have been made afraid of being in love with yourself, which is the first step of love. A man who loves himself respects himself. And a man who loves and respects himself loves and respects others. He becomes aware that we are not different: we are one. In the foundation, we are part of one nature. A man who loves himself starts overflowing, so that his love starts reaching others. You love other people, you love animals, flowers and trees.

Love makes you a spiritual force. Love yourself, says Buddha, this can transform the whole world.

Love begins with yourself, and then it can spread. Love yourself, says Buddha, and then he adds, and watch. That is Buddha’s word for meditation. The first step is to love yourself, and the second step is to watch. Love is the first step to know yourself.If you do not love yourself, you will never know yourself. Love your body, love your mind and love your soul. Watching is meditation. It is Buddha’s name for meditation. He says: Be aware, be alert and be conscious.

The first step in meditation is to love yourself, to respect and accept yourself as you are. The second step in meditation is to watch – watch when you take a walk, watch when you eat and watch when you spend time with friends.

4. Joy that comes from within: Giten posits that to be joyful is the basic nature of life. Joy is the spiritual dimension of happiness, in which one begins to understand one’s intrinsic value and place inthe universe.

  Accepting joy is a decision to “go with the flow,” to begrateful to be alive and for all the challenges and opportunities in life,rather than setting conditions or demands for happiness.Joy is the essence of our life. That even unhappiness has its roots in joy.

Giten shares a unique perspective of accepting joy by being grateful for our life with its challenges and opportunities rather than placing a demand or setting conditions for it. Giten urges us to reconnect with the natural joy that we were born with, and that is available to us the moment we turn our attention to the silent space within.

  1. Spiritual creativity – Being in harmony with existence. Spiritual creativity is an attitude to life. Spiritual creativity is to be in harmony with existence, spirtual creativity is to act in harmony with existence.  Spiritual creativity has nothing to do with a certain activity that you do. Spiritual creativity has to do with the presence, love, joy and silence that you give to the activity that you do.  Then everything can be creative.

    In this satsang series, Giten will also describe the work of a mystery school. He will talk about what mysticism is, and he will talk about love, trust, intuition, courage, fear, the ego, meditation, creativity, freedom, doing and non-doing, death, the relationship between the spiritual teacher and the student, silence, enlightenment, life and existence.

    The Mystery School is the science of meditation: how to observe the mind and its processes min a relaxed, non-judgmental way and the find the perception and clarity of self-realization. Meditation is a way of settling in oneself, at the innermost core your being. Once you have found the center of your existence, you will have found both your roots and wings. The roots are in your inner being and existence and the wings are in the fragrance that is released in contact with existence.

    The fragrance consists of love, freedom, compassion, authenticity, sincerity, humor and a tremendous feeling of blissfulness. The roots make you an individual, and the wings give the freedom to love, to be creative, to share unconditionally the joy that you have found.

The mystery school is supported by silent satsang with Giten, which is a direct insight and realization of being.

SPIRITUAL CREATIVITY:

TO ACT IN HARMONY WITH EXISTENCE

8-9 February, 2020

Andlig kreativitet är en attityd till livet. Andlig Kreativitet är att vara i harmoni med existensen, andlig kreativitet är att agera i harmoni med existensen.

Andlig kreativitet har inte någonting att göra med en viss aktivitet. Allting kan vara kreativt. Det är du som tillför en kvalitet av närvaro, kärlek och glädje till till aktiviteten. Aktivitet i sig själv är varken kreativ eller inte kreativ.

Kreativitet är den kvalitet som du tillför till aktiviteten som du utför. Det är en attityd, en inre attityd, till hur du ser på saker och hur du ser på livet.

Begränsa inte kreativitet till en viss aktivitet. Det är personen, som är kreativ – och om personen är kreativ. så kan allting som han eller hon gör vara kreativt. Till och med om han eller hon promenerar eller bara sitter, så kan du se att han eller hon är kreativ.

Kreativitet handlar grundläggande inte om att du målar, skriver eller skapar musik. Kreativitet handlar om att du lägger in hela din själ i det som du skapar. Då kommer ditt kreativa resultat att ha någonting av det gudomliga.

Kreativitet har att göra med kvaliteten hos ditt medvetande. Vadän du gör kan bli kreativt. Vadän du gör kan bli kreativt om du vet vad kreativitet innebär.

Kreativitet betyder att hitta en glädje i vilket arbete som helst som en meditation, att göra vilket arbete som helst med en djup kärlek. Om du älskar ett arbete, så blir det kreativt. Om du verkligen älskar någonting, så blir det kreativt.

Vadän du gör kan vara kreativt om du gör det med glädje, om du gör det med kärlek. Om någonting utvecklas inom dig, så är det andligt, det är kreativt, det är gudomligt. Du blir mer andlig, desto mer du blir kreativ. När din kreativitet kommer till ett klimax, så blir hela ditt liv kreativt, du lever i Gud.

Älska vad du gör. Var meditativ medan du gör det – och det blir kreativt.

En individ med en förståelse för andlig kreativitet är kontinuerligt kreativ. Det  är en attityd till livet. Inte för att han eller hon försöker att vara kreativ, utan till och med det sätt som han eller hon sitter kan vara en kreativ akt.

Andlig kreativitet är ett paradoxalt tillstånd av varande och medvetande. Det är att tillåta någonting att ske genom dig. det är att bli en passage, så att helheten kan flöda genom dig. När du inte är, så är Gud – det är kreativitet. Det är andlig kreativitet – att tillåta Gud att hända är kreativitet. Andlig kreativitet är ett andligt tillstånd.

Visdom är att agera i harmoni med existensen. Detta är visdomens essens; att vara i harmoni med existensen, att vara i kontakt med universums rytm. Det är andlig kreativitet.

Under denna kurs kommer Giten att prata om följande teman: Vad är andlig kreativitet?, skillnaden mellan själv-medvetande, vilket består av egot och som skapar en separation och en konflikt med existensen samt medvetande, vilket är att fritt flöda med livet och existensen, skillnaden mellan aktion, att vara i kontakt med livet och att agera utifrån hjärtat i ögonblicket och aktivitet, att agera utifrån egot och det förflutna, de fem hindren för att vara i kontakt med andlig kreativitet samt de fyra nycklarna till kreativitet.

Denna kurs kommer att stödjas av stilla satsang med Giten. Satsang med Giten är ett möte i kärlek, sanning och stillhet. Det är en direkt insikt och erfarenhet av varande. Det är ett nytt sätt att vara, ett nytt sätt att vara kreativ, som kan transformera hela ditt liv.

THE MYSTERY SCHOOL:

BE A LIGHT TO YOURSELF

 – BEING IN HARMONY WITH EXISTENCE

 

  Intuition, the inner guide, the inner master – Joy from within – Loving Yourself: Love, freedom & Aloneness – Spiritual Creativity: Being in Harmony with Existence  

Satsang weekend with Giten, 6-8 March, 2020, in Stockholm

The last words of Gautama the Buddha on the earth were: Be a light unto yourself. Do not follow others, because following creates stupidity. You are born with a light within you. You are enough to yourself. You are sufficient to yourself. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you. Nobody else can guide you, nobody else can become a model for your life because you are unique. Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of our own consciousness, and foolishness as following others.

Buddha says, “BE A LIGHT UNTO YOURSELF!” That is his greatest message. This very message of Buddha functions as a reminder to all the seekers of truth – on the path of enlightenment.

Nobody else in the whole world, in the whole history of humanity, has been so respectful towards others as Gautam the Buddha. “Be a light unto yourself.”

Buddhas only point the way — fingers pointing to the moon. YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW, AND YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW ACCORDING TO YOUR NATURE. You have to be silent, quiet, so you can listen to the still small voice within you, and then follow it. Wherever it leads, it is good.

GO IN DEEP TRUST, FOLLOWING YOUR OWN VOICE. Be spontaneous, natural, ordinary. This is the way of being extraordinary. Be ordinary but aware, and the ordinary becomes the sacred.

A buddha has not to be followed, but understood. A buddha has not to be imitated but listened to — listened to in tremendous silence, love, trust. And the more you understand a buddha, the more you will feel he is speaking not from the outside but from within, from the very core of your being. 

In this satsang weekend series we will also explore five keys to spiritual maturity: 

  1. Be a light to yourself: The last words of Gautama the Buddha on the earth were: Be a light unto yourself. Do not follow others, because following creates stupidity.
