Satyama Padma under Christmas Celebration med Giten, 24 december, 2016

 

“Satsang with Giten is like a scent, a flowering of This is it.”

Satyama Padma, Stockholm

 

“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.

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.”

– Satyama Padma, Stockholm, from the foreword to Giten’s latest book on the teachings of Buddha

 

A loving invitation to Giten’s friends and sangha, who have previously participated in satsang with Giten, to a Christmas celerbration with satsang and darshan.

Satsang with Giten is a meeting in love, truth and silence. Satsang with Giten is a direct insight and realization of being.

 

“The Upanishadic vision of life is that the universe is an organic whole. We are all existing in a 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.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten, from satsang, November 2, 2017, in Stockholm

 

During this satsang and darshan, Giten will talk about the Upanishads as the fundament for everyone interested in meditation. The theme for the day is Life, Light and Love: Silence – The Door to the Divine. 

 

Background to The Upanishads: 

This 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.

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.

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.

“When I participated in Satsang with Giten for the first time, I felt that I had come to the right place. I felt that I had come home. I never thought that a 2-hour Satsang could go so deep.

This book is a compilation of Swami Dhyan Giten’s lectures on Jesus Christ during satsang between May – July, 2015, in Stockholm.


Giten was a disciple of Jesus in a former life.


In this book Giten talks about the beauty and wisdom of the words of Jesus.
Giten talks about Jesus, the Man, Jesus, the Mystic and Jesus, the Rebel. He makes a clear distinction between Jesus Christ and the religion that has been built around him – Christianity.


Through talking about the gospels of Matthew, Luke and John, Giten reintroduces Jesus as the man, the mystic and the compromiseless rebel, who are filled with love and compassion. Jesus becomes alive in a new and dynamic way and not in the way that Jesus has been presented to us by the theologians and the priests.
Giten talks about love, joy, trust, acceptance, healing, truth, the need to serve, the difference between being and ego, wisdom, silence and God.
For the first time, we really feel the laughter, passion, silence and celebration of life in Jesus, which shows us the deeper meaning, the timeless relevance.
This book is a a joy and a delight for those in love with the words of Jesus.
In-between the lectures on Jesus Christ, Giten answer questions on spiritual growth from seekers of truth.
Giten has also complemented the lectures on Jesus with The Art of Living, which includes practical meditation exercises.

      The Language of Silence: From Darkness to Light

by Swami Dhyan Giten

* * * * *

Five stars, Goodreads, the world’s largest book site for readers and book recommendations with 45 million users

“I was 9 years old when I had my first spiritual awakening, my first glimpse of wholeness with Existence, my first taste of the language of silence, says spiritual teacher and best-selling author Swami Dhyan Giten in this book. 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.

I have always had the capacity to go within myself and to discover the silence within, the inner meditative quality, the inner source of love and truth, the inner language of silence”, Giten explains in this book. “Now I also notice that this silence is going deeper, and that I go beyond the ego and disappear into the silence. ”
This book consists of a collection of quotes from Swami Dhyan Giten on silence. It also explains how silence is the flower and love and wholeness are the fragrance.
Swami Dhyan Giten has dedicated his life to teach the art of awareness and meditation. He conducts individual consultations, seminars and courses internationally. His quotes, articles and books has touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.

“As I started studying for Giten, a new dimension of awareness has developed step by step, which has transformed my whole life. Thank you so much Giten for your wonderful being and support in life.”
– From the foreword by Deva Emanuel, musician and student of Giten since 7 years.

“Swami Dhyan Giten’s The Language of Silence — From Darkness to Light reminds me of those moments when we drift back from sleep to wakefulness and the precious insights that quite often occur in those instants of ”awakening.”

It is my own experience that all spiritual paths have a common thread which most simply stated is: unconditional self acceptance. It is this process or journey toward self acceptance that leads to our connection with our individual aloneness and silence about which Giten so beautifully often comments. Here Giten tells us we find our true heart, that love that becomes our healer and a healing presence that projects beyond ourselves and heals and nourishes the lives of all others with who we have contact, be they friends, strangers or even our pets.

Giten’s The Language of Silence is a beautifully expressed and highly intimate picture of his own spiritual history. While reading this book which is formatted in short segments and insightful phrases and a true delight to read and sure to later re-visit, I had the sense of listening to his open heart as it gave words to his personal silence. 

 Giten offers us a quite intimate connection with his inner being and thus a glimpse of the beauty within ourselves.” – Eric Rolf, international lecturer, author of Soul Medicine and former consultant to John Lennon

Presence – Working from Within. The Psychology of Being

 by Swami Dhyan Giten

* * * * *

Five stars, Goodreads, the world’s largest book site for readers and book recommendations with 45 million users

Spiritual therapy works basically because we are all one. In the depth of our heart and being, we are in contact with each other. We are in contact with each other in the ocean of consciousness.


This book is an invitation to open our heart. This book is basically about love. It is designed to help us understand how healing happens. Healing is pure love. Healing and wholene Spiritual therapy works basically because we are all one. In the depth of our heart and being, we are in contact with each other. We are in contact with each other in the ocean of consciousness.


This book is an invitation to open our heart. This book is basically about love. It is designed to help us understand how healing happens. Healing is pure love. Healing and wholeness happens when we meet the love within ourselves.


Working with people from love, truth and wholeness is the psychology of being, the science of inner transformation. The psychology of being begins where Western psychology ends. It goes beyond Skinner, Freud, Jung, Rogers and Humanistic psychology.


The psychology of being is the psychology of consciousness, a psychology for inner transformation. It is basically not a question of psychology; it is a question of being. The psychology of being begins where we are and takes us to that which we can be.
This book is designed to help us develop our presence, so that our presence and intuition becomes a source of love, joy, acceptance, understanding, truth, silence, wisdom and creativity in the contact with another person.


This book presents a new dimension of healing with a base in meditation. Meditation is the way to deepen our capacity to be present and to explore how to bring the meditative presence and quality into the healing and therapeutic process. The underlying theme of the book is meditation – but not meditation as a static technique – but as the capacity to BE with ourselves and with another person in a quality of watchful awareness, acceptance and relaxation.


This book is written both for people who want to discover their own inner being and for those who work with other people and wants to discover a new love, clarity, depth and inspiration in their professional work.
The different topics of the book are combined with practical exercises.

Giten, satsang, satsang weekend

Beloved friends,

My beloved friend since many lives has left her body yesterday. My heart is in pain to have lost a beloved and beautiful friend since many lives, but I am immensly grateful that I was able to share the satsang with her.

A couple of months ago, I told her that it was a pain in my heart that she would leave her body because of her epilepsy and cancer, but she replied with a smile: “Then I will be dancing around you.”

Before I knew that she had left her body yesterday, Padma visited me several times in her energy body with a love and joy – and the last time ske asked if she could attend satsang tonight.

Satsang tonight will end with a celebation to Padma with cake, Belgian chocolate, saffron bread and delicious mango juice.

Padma was initiated by Giten to the inner path. Her initiation talk can be read below. In April she also wrote the foreword to Giten’s latest book on the teachings of Buddha, which is also included below. In this foreword Padma wrote:

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.

LOVE, TRUTH AND GRACE GO TOGETHER
– INITIATION WITH GITEN:
SATYAMA PADMA
NOVEMBER, 7, 2016

Darshan with Giten with on November 7 was both a birthday and a new birth when Toshen’s birthday was celebrated and she was also initiated by Giten.

Toshen is initiated and is born again to the spiritual path. Giten gave her a new name and a a personal meaning to her name, which is a spiritual guidance for life.

Giten told Toshen during the initiation: Your new name is Satyama Padma. Satyama is your path, which means truth. Padma is your individual name, which means a lotus flower of God’s grace, love and light. The meaning of your whole name is a lotus flower of God’s grace, truth, love and light.

The lotus flower is an ancient symbol of the ultimate unfolding of consciousness.

The lotus flower is the most beautiful flower in the East, the most fragrant, and it has become the symbol of ultimate awakening, ultimate awareness and ultimate flowering.

The highest peak of your being is thought to be like a lotus flower.

The lotus flower has become the spiritual flower for certain reasons. One is that it grows out of the mud. It is such a revolution to see the mud, and the lotus growing out of it.

Padma commented that the initiation was a gift and Deva Emanuel said that there was an underlying silence during the whole evening.

The birthday and initiation was celebrated with exquisite ecological cake and delicious ecological strawberry lemonade.

As birthday and initiation gifts Padma received a dress from the Italian designer Missoni, whose exquisite design and colours was like a lotus flower.

She also received Giten’s book “The Language of Silence: From Darkness to Light” and two necklaces that emphasized the lotus as the symbol of enlightenment.

Padma commented that this initiation was a new beginning to her life.

Both Giten and Padma also received beautiful pink roses, whose fragrance was like a secnt from heaven.

 

Foreword

This book is a work of art, 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 literary, but to build a home around you is like trying to stop the river of life, which is continuously changing.

The 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 unexpectingly picked me in the ear, or when the llama suddenly spit me in the face. 

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 has the power to change how we see the World. 

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 have arisen 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, Tantra, Veda, 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.

Satsang with Giten confirms what I have really always known. 

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 and light.
