“Giten is really a spiritual master of love and silence. He is a loving man, who knows the science of truth, love and life. Whenever I read his words of spirituality, I always find myself in deep silence and in the belly of the divine, where anyone can feel himself as a buddha.”

– Swami Prem Pathik, Nepal

This book is about the teachings of Buddha, which includes Giten’s own insights into this exciting journey and meditation of life. This book is a compilation of lectures during satsang with Giten on the teachings of Buddha. Satsang with Giten on Buddha is not about Buddhism, it is about creating a bridge. Buddha is one of the most unique and important spiritual masters that have existed on Earth. Through using Buddha’s wisdom as a jumping board, Giten gives life to words that have the power to change how we see the world. Buddha’s greatest message, his gift to humanity, is the message of no-self, anatta, silence and emptiness, spiritual teacher Swami Dhyan Giten says in this book.

You can keep the book with you during the day and open it for moments of inspiration, truth and wisdom. “Silence is the Way” consists of short sentences and paragraphs to meditate upon to understand that silence is the way to meditation and enlightenment. 

“This book is an artwork, and a pleasure to read. It is both exciting, simple to read and it is filled with love and light. Many words and sentences in Giten’s book “Silence is the Way” go right into the heart.

Delight in the call of the ocean. Capture the silence and allow yourself the fragrance of truth, joy and light.” Padma says in the foreword to the book. 

Satsang with Giten is a meeting in love, truth and silence. Satsang with Giten is a direct insight and realization of being. Satsang with Giten starts a lecture, which is followed by 40 minutes of satsang with Giten in silence and meditation. During the satsangs there arose a deep silence and unity in the group.

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, Zen, Tantra, Veda, The Upanishads, Ayurveda, the chakra system, Tao, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Patanjali and Jesus Christ.

“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, Padma says in the foreword to the book.  

From the foreword by Satyama Padma

This book is an artwork, and a pleasure to read. It is both exciting, simple to read and it is filled with love and light. Many words and sentences in Giten’s book “Silence is the Way” go right into the heart. Giten is a master in transmitting the light and joy, without too many words.

Buddha’s greatest message, his gift to humanity, is the message of no-self, anatta, silence and emptiness, spiritual teacher Swami Dhyan Giten says in this book. Giten continues: “First Buddha says don’t make a home in the world. Then he says don’t be attached and then he says look into yourself: you are not. First he says that the world is illusory: don’t make a home here. Buddha emphasizes very much the idea of homelessness, because the world is illusory. It need not be taken literally, but to build a home around you is like trying to stop the river of life, which is continuously changing. Then he says that attachments of possessing people are just dreams, illusions. Drop all attachments from your mind. And then he comes to the deepest doctrine. The doctrine is: look inside, you are not. You can only exist as an ego with the home, with the possessions, with the relationships.” 

When I read this book, I feel like being in a modern mystery school. Thank you. It is the same feeling of joy, beauty and excitement, which reminds me of when the colibri unexpectedly picked me in the ear, or when the llama suddenly spit me in the face.

During the satsang series with Giten on Buddha, he clarified the steps on Buddha’s way to liberation: the path of awareness and meditation. During this satsang series on Buddha, Giten encouraged us to use awareness, meditation and mindfulness to develop the natural discipline which comes when we listen to ourselves. It is then when we discover that silence is the way, that silence is the answer.

This compilation of lectures during the satsang series with Giten on Buddha is for everybody that wants to find a new dimension of awareness in their lives, which will make you endlessly enriched and blessed.

Delight in the call of the ocean.

Capture the silence and allow yourself the fragrance of truth, joy, light.

An excerpt from the book

FINDING OUR

 OWN WAY

From Dhammapada, Chapter 1

 

WE ARE WHAT WE THINK

ALL THAT WE ARE ARISES WITH OUR THOUGHTS

WITH OUR THOUGHTS WE MAKE THE WORLD

SPEAK OR ACT WITH AN IMPURE MIND

AND TROUBLE WILL FOLLOW YOU

AS THE WHEEL FOLLOWS THE OX

THAT DRAWS THE CART 

WHOEVER IS MASTER OF HIS OWN NATURE

BRIGHT, CLEAR AND TRUE.

HE MAY INDEED WEAR THE YELLOW ROBE 

The Dhammapada, the teaching of Buddha, can only be taught to the bodhisattva’s.

It cannot be taught to the ordinary humanity, because it cannot be understood by them.

A Bodhisattva means a buddha in essence, a buddha asleep, but with the potential to be awake.

In that sense everybody is a bodhisattva, but not everybody can be called a bodhisattva.

Only those who have started to search for the truth and the light can be called a bodhisattva.

We have made investments in lies for so many lives that the idea of truth makes us scared.

But truth already is. Truth has not to be invented, truth has to be discovered.

You have taken the commitment to search for truth, which is why I call you bodhisattva’s. 

These words of Buddha come from eternal silence.

They can reach you only if you receive them in silence.

Unless you become aware, egoless, you will not be able to understand them.

These are very simple words, but to understand simplicity, you need simplicity of heart.

Only the simple heart can understand the simple truth. 

Satsang is an effort to create an energy field, a buddhafield, an energy field for the eternal truths.

It is a communion of heart, a communion in silence.

These sayings of Buddha are called The Dhammapada.

The word “dhamma” means the ultimate law. It is what keeps the universe together.

A second meaning of “dhamma” is God, but Buddha never uses the word God, because the ultimate law is not a person, but a presence, a consciousness, an energy.

The third meaning of “dhamma” is also discipline, because one who wants to know the truth needs discipline.

The word “disciple” comes from the word discipline. A disciple is someone who is available to learn, to drop the past and to go beyond the mind.

The word “dhamma” also means the ultimate truth. When the mind disappears, when the ego disappears, something remains.

This Buddha calls “nothing”.

The last meaning of “dhamma” is truth. Truth is to become aware of your inner being, the inner emptiness. 

The second word is pada. The meaning of pada is path.

You have to become a process, a growth.

You have to become a river, because only rivers will reach the ocean, the whole.

Without dhamma, without relating to the ultimate truth, your life has no meaning. 

WE ARE WHAT WE THINK

Who are you if all your thoughts disappear?

An emptiness, a nothingness.

Mystics have always used the word “self” for the innermost core of your being, but Buddha uses the word “no-self”.

He says that when the mind ceases, there is no self left.

You have become universal.

If you really want to know who you are, you will have to learn to cease as a mind and move into no-mind, to disappear into the silence.

And in the silence, you will know the ultimate truth, the dhamma.

Moving from mind to no-mind is the way of the Dahmmapada.
