Swami Dhyan Giten: The World is Coming to an End: Remain Awake

The world is running fast toward the end. The ecology of the planet is breaking down. This should be absolutely emphasized on your consciousness, so that you stop postponing your own transformation.

Man is asleep, he is almost in a coma, and his actions are arising out of this state of coma. Man’s mind is so stupid that if there is a little possibility to postpone, then he will postpone for tomorrow. You may go on sleeping and the world may come to an end.

You don’t have time to waste for anything else other than your own awakening, but your growth is so slow that there is every possibility that the world will be gone before you become enlightened.

You are not putting your total energy into awareness, into meditation. It is just one of those things that you are doing and it is not even the first priority of your life.

It has to be the first priority. That the world is coming to an end has to be emphasized on your consciousness, so that you stop postponing your own awakening.

Nothing has changed in the world; everything is going exactly in the direction of war and death. It all depends on what your priority is. If being awakened has become your priority, and you are ready to sacrifice everything for it, then there is hope.

To wake up, you have to realize that the end of the world is coming closer. That the end of the world is coming closer means to things: it must be clear that the world is working for its final suicide and that there is still a possibility at least for you to become awakened.

Your awakening is of tremendous importance. To make you aware of the reality, so that you can make some effort to remain awake, to make some effort to be more conscious and not to get lost in trivia – is absolutely necessary.

But people change with difficulty; they find it easier to remain as they are – just like stones.

Change means an effort, a commitment, to awaken to your being – and not waste it in stupid things.

If you put your total energy into moving more consciously, the destruction of the earth will not be your destruction. Then you have found the key to a higher life, to a divine life. 


There has never been in the whole history of humanity such dangerous moments as those that we are passing trough now.

There is no time of consoling yourself that some miracle will happen.

The ecolology of the earth is breaking down, and there are multi-dimensional ways that death is approaching the earth.

But people change with difficulty; they find it easier to remain as they are.

The arrogance and the stupidity that my first words on this current dangerous crisis arose in many people is just a rationalization and a denial, so you don’t have to change and you can continue in your fixed and mechanical patterns of life.

On the so-called spiritual site on Facebook “The Buddha in the gas station”, there was not much Buddha’s but a lot of gas station, where 30 Americans projected their sleep and stupidity towards and called me all the names in the book.

I am not responsible for this situation; I just make the current dangerous situation clear.

The arrogance and denial is just your unconsciousness that does not want to change and disappear.

There is no time to waste in unconscious rationalization and denial.

An absolute transformation is needed, which may help you to wake up. 


The emphasis to save the earth is to discover our love, joy and silence.

Your love, joy and silence can save the earth, but that does not mean to carry the idea that your love, joy and silence can save the earth, because this becomes a strategy of the ego.

If you are full of love, joy and silence, the earth can maybe be saved as a consequence.

If you come from enlightenment and bliss, you are bound to affect the whole destiny of humanity.

The greatest miracle in the world is that you can disappear in the joy; you can love and disappear in the love.

You cannot claim that you are doing it, because you have disappeared.

And only joy, love and silence create miracles around you, but you will not be the one who has done them.

They will happen only when you are not, they will only happen when you have moved out of your own way, and allow them to happen.

About the book:

This book is a compilation of lectures from satsang with spiritual teacher and best-selling author Swami Dhyan Giten on the Upanishads, the ancient wisdom of India, between March 2016 and July 2018 in Stockholm.

“Man is like a river on his way towards the ocean, towards the divine. The drop has a thirst, a longing. The drop knows nothing of the ocean, but the drop longs to become one with the ocean. The drop cannot find fulfillment until it becomes on with the ocean, the divine. This book is a journey to the ocean, to the divine.” – Swami Dhyan Giten

In this book Giten talks about The Upanishadic vision of life, which is a universe in an organic whole. We are all existing in togetherness. The trees, the flowers, the stones, the birds, the mountains and the stars are all interlinked. The part represents the whole. Nothing is lower, nothing is higher – all is one. The smallest blade of grass is connected with the farthest stars.

The Upanishadic vision of life has never become part of human consciousness. It has remained the vision of a few mystics, which is the basic reason for the misery of the world.

The word Upanishadic means to sit in deep communion with truth. It means to sit in satsang in a deep communion of the heart. The Upanishads is a silent communion from heart to heart. That is the meaning of Upanishad. Sitting in silent communion of the heart, and something transpires. This transmission beyond words is the meaning of the word Upanishad. The Upanishadic approach is individual.

Organized religion, tradition, dogma and ideology are bound to be against the individuality.

“Satsang with Giten is heaven. Satsang with Giten about the Upanishads is so exciting. Satsang with Giten is like a scent, a flowering of This is it!

Satsang with Giten has the same taste as satsang in India. Suddenly meditation is not dry and sterile, but an experience of love, silence and prayer, of being one with life.

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 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. I never thought that samadhi was possible, but in satsang with Giten, samadhi is knocking on the door.”

-Padma, participant in satsang with Giten

Excerpt from the book


Your actions bind you, because you think that you are the actions. Actions bind you, because you think that you are the doer. The “I”, the ego, behind the actions goes on binding you to those actions.

Through countless past lives, this feeling of being the doer has become strengthened. You think that you are a great doer, while in reality there is no other doer than existence.

How can you drop this attachments and karma? If someone becomes conscious that he is not the doer of the actions – all actions are the will of the whole and he is only a flute in existence hands. In that moment, he is free of karma.If the bondage of karma is not destroyed, there is no freedom.

A meditator says: Now I am not doing anything, everything is done by existence. If someone receives this insight both the bondage of present karma and the bondage of all past karma will vanish.

Karma can be dissolved only when cut from the root – and the root is the ego, the sense of that “I” am doing. So the doer, the “I”, has to dissolve. It is not necessary to focus on the actions, only the “I”, the ego, has to be dissolved. Whenever there is a feeling that “I am doing this”, remember that, you are only the seer, the witness.

Be a watcher. Whenever the feeling of “I” is there shift it to the watcher.
