“Divine words of wisdom by Swami Dhyan Giten.”
– Boundless Blessings Blog about Giten’s new book “When the Drop becomes the Ocean”
“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

The book is dedicated to Padma, Giten’s beloved friend from many lives, who also participated in satsang with him.
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.
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 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.”
GITEN PRESENTS HIS NEW BOOK “WHEN THE DROP BECOMES THE OCEAN: TO GRETA, THE SWEDISH ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST WHO IS INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN FOR CHALLENGING WORLD LEADERS TO TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION FOR CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION
Giten writes in the letter to Greta:
My new book When the Drop becomes the Ocean was published two weeks ago and with increasing surprise I have witnessed how this book has suddenly become available all over the world: from Sweden, France, USA, England, Germany, Italy, Canada, Australia, Japan, Russia to India. My feeling is that this happens because life needs the book.
The book describes the Upanishads, which is the world’s first spiritual system, which also relates to the fundamental causes of climate change, a man separated from himself, from others, from nature and from life as a whole.
On the back of the book it is described in this way: 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.”
Some time after this, Greta described the climate change as an “existential crisis” in an address to Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

Happiness is the meaning and goal of life.

Goodreads, the world’s largest book site for book readers with 45 million users worldwide, shares a collection of quotes from Giten’s new book When the Drop becomes the Ocean
“Enlightenment is the realization that all is as it should be. Everything is perfect as it is. Enlightenment is not an effort to achieve. Enlightenment is a state of non-doing, of effortlessness. Enlightenment is the feeling that you are at home in existence. You are part of the whole. You don’t exist separately, all separation has disappeared. Enlightenment is the understanding that all is good and that all is an tremendous harmony.”
― Swami Dhyan Giten, When the Drop becomes the Ocean
“Meditation is a death, a death of the ego. A meditator has to pass through a death. Meditation is the art of learning to die consciously. The spiritual teacher gives you meditation to die and to be reborn.”
― Swami Dhyan Giten, When the Drop becomes the Ocean
“Be truthful to yourself. You do not need to change anybody else. If you can grow yourself that is enough. To be authentic means to be true to your own being.
Always listen to your inner voice, otherwise your whole life will be wasted. Don’t allow anybody else to try to manipulate and control you. To be authentic means to be true to oneself. Truth means the authenticity of being, not imposing anything that you are not. Truth means not to pretend, just be whatsoever you are. It is to be authentic, true and respectful to your own soul. Risk everything for truth, otherwise you will remain discontented. Even a single moment of authenticity is better than a whole life of inauthentic living. Love is only possible with the truth. Love has to be lived, otherwise your life will be futile.
Risk everything for truth. Never risk truth for anything else. Then tremendous happiness will be yours. Once you are true, everything becomes possible.
It is not always easy to be true to oneself, but whenever people do it they achieve such beauty, grace and contentment.
Always listen to the inner voice, and don’t listen to anything else. The world is a supermarket, and everybody is interested in selling things to you. The society wants to make you a hypocrite. Just close your eyes and listen to the inner voice. That is what meditation is all about, to listen to the inner voice.”

To recognize the divine is the ultimate wisdom, the ultimate truth
A quote from Swami Dhyan Giten’s new book “When the Drop becomes the Ocean” on the Body And Soul Nourishment Blog
“When a person experiences the divine, he can no longer condemn anyone. Love becomes natural to him, because he starts seeing godliness in everybody.
The person that has entered the inner temple of the heart of all living beings truly sees.
To experience godliness one has to recognize that which is hidden deep in the inner temple of the heart. The divine is hidden deep within yourself.
Godliness is the original source within everybody. Godliness is the ultimate mystery. Godliness is the universal self. It is the ultimate limit of existence.
Godliness is everywhere. Everything in the world is a reflection of the divine.
To recognize the divine is the ultimate wisdom, the ultimate truth.”
Swami Dhyan Giten, When the Drop becomes the Ocean
He has been speaking and teaching about the inner silence and how to reach it through love, joy, meditation, awareness, relationships and creativity.
Swami Dhyan Giten has dedicated his life to teaching the art of awareness and meditation. He conducts individual consultations, satsang 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.
He is trained in modern psychology at the University of Stockholm, where the head teacher at the psychological institution called Giten “the salt of the earth”, and a classmate said that Giten “did not move an inch from who he is”. He is also trained in classic Eastern methods for awareness and meditation in the 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.
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.”
A spiritual teacher, who has counseled thousands of people, told Giten in 1984: “You will dissolve into the silence. All the earlier enlightened Masters and all the small Deva’s are just here to help you to get enlightened.”
In satsang, Giten has talked about a variety of topics of concern for the modern man during satsang for example love, joy, relationships, acceptance, understanding, intuition, healing, trust, creativity, friendship, spiritual growth, evolution, society, life, meditation, silence, spirituality, mysticism, psychology, truth, wisdom, death, unity with life, God and enlightenment. He has also talked about a number of spiritual teachers and traditions such as Vedanta, Yoga, Tantra, Veda, Upanishads, Ayurveda, the chakra system, Tao, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Patanjali and Jesus Christ.
He is author of the best-selling book in Swedish “Meditationens Sång – Om meditation, relationer och andlig kreativitet” (available from Internet book store Adlibris.com, Akademibokhandeln.se, Bokus.com and Amazon), and “The Silent Whisperings of the Heart – An Introduction to Giten’s Approach to Life” (available on Amazon, Barnes & Nopble and Walmart globally), “The Way, the Truth and the Life: On Jesus Christ, the Man, the Mystic and the Rebel” (available as paperback at Internet book store Lulu.com: www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten), Presence – Working from Within. The Psychology of Being (available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Walmart globally) and “The Language of Silence – From Darkness to Light” (available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Walmart globally).

The books is also available on Akademibokhandeln.se, Bokus.com and Adlibris.com in Sweden, Finland and Norway.
