Comments from around the world after Giten’s complaint to the Swedish police after the attack on him from the Swedish sannyas movement
“It took 10 years after Osho´s death for the sannyas movement to become a church. The problem now for the sannyas movement is that the intelligent people are leaving, and the idiots remain, which is already the case with the sannyas movement in Stockholm.
– Swami Dhyan Giten
– Devadas, Delsbo, Sweden
“It also proves that Giten is not only right on his way of teaching love, compassion and meditation for individal’s inner growth to make humanity beautiful and responsible. He is a true disciple of Beloved Master OSHO, who teaches and talks only TRUTH.
– Prem Pathik, Nepal
“Sad to hear, but no surprice really, these tendencies are in us all and everywhere. Spiritual ego is maybe the strongest.”

Satsang Weekend

Divine Healing

Healing from Within:
 Ayurvedic healing, Ayurvedic psychology and Ayurvedic spirituality and self-realization

9-11 december, 2016

“Healing basically comes from the silence within.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten 

“The basic cause of physical imbalance and disease is to lose contact with your soul, with your spiritual purpose in life.” 

– Swami Dhyan Giten 

“Meditation is the most important treatment to regain balance and health. Meditation is to come in contact with your soul, with the inner silence, which is the inner source of healing and wholeness.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

“Mental and physical disease are often caused by a lack of love.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“The presence of a healer whose presence and spiritual energy is awakened is healing.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“Touch is the way through which the healing is conveyed between the healer and the client.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten
“The healer´s presence and spiritual energy can awaken the vitality and life force of the client, which creates healing.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten

During this satsang weekend, Giten will give an overview of the Eastern science behind the energy centers in the human body that are called chakras. It is a science that underlies traditional Chinese medicine, Indian Ayurveda, Tibetan medicine and the practice of kundalini yoga, among other disciplines that recognize the deep connection between mind and body. 

We will also explore how these principles apply to understanding the natural healing power of the body, mind and consciousness, how they apply to human psychological growth and maturation and the evolution of consciousness.

This Satsang Weekend will be especially of interest to the large group of people involved with spirtuality, meditation, health and yoga, as Giten will talk about what underlies the Kundalini Yoga approach to the human energy system. During these satsang evenings Giten will deliver the ‘esoteric science’ and understanding in the context of personal growth and transformation.


During this satsang weekend, we will explore the following topics: 

– MEDITATION: How meditation is the most important treatment to regain balance and health. The basic cause of physical imbalance and disease are to lose contact with your soul, with your spiritual purpose in life. Meditation is to come in contact with your soul, with the inner silence, which is the inner source of healing and wholeness. 

– HEALING: Reconecting with our inner silence,  the inner source of healing, which activates the natural healing power of the body, mind and consciouseness.

– CHAKRAS: Understanding the chakra system and discover the interconnections between the chakras, physical organs and emotions. Dissolution of ego is the key to develop chakras, because ego creates the constriction of energy that prevents chakras from functioning. 

– AYURVEDIC HEALING offers the wisdom of this ancient system of mind-body medicine.  Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest and most comprehensive systems of natural medicine. During these satsang evenings Giten will describe the foundations and principles of Ayurveda. Topics covered include diet and digestion, toxic build-up, purification therapies and the effects of the emotions and thinking on health. He will also talk about Ayurvedic treatment for all the main common diseases of the systems of the body from the digestive system to the nervous system and mind.  

– HEALING OF THE HEART: PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL CAUSES OF IMBALANCE AND DISEASE: Imbalance and physical disease are caused both by psychological, emotional and physical causes. If you are struggling with pain from the past that is preventing you from experiencing happiness in the present, now is the time to release this emotional toxicity and set yourself free. Emotional pain takes many forms: the grief of loss, overwhelming stress and anxiety, depression, job burnout, feeling stuck, heart break, regret, the inability to trust, anger, and worry about the future. In the face of difficulty, most of us do our best to cope with the situation, hold it together, and keep going, but we often end up carrying emotional pain that we don’t know how to heal or release.

AYURVEDIC PSYCHOLOGY: Exploring the psychological aspect of Ayurveda. Exploring how to heal the mind, body and consciousness on all levels from the conscious, the subconscious to the superconscious through diet, and many spiritual methods to create wholeness.
AYURVEDIC SPIRITUALITY, SELF-REALIZATION AND ENLIGHTENMENT: Ayurveda includes not only physical health, but also spirituality, self-realization and enlightenment. Ayurvedic spirituality and self-realization addresses our entire nature, our greater life as a spiritual being. It looks at the the entire field of yoga and meditation and our preparation for spiritual life. This is for people who want to explore issues on a deeper level of knowledge than what is usually described in introductory books on these subjects.

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

Satsang begins with a lecture, interactive dialogue with questions and answers and ends with silent satsang. In satsangs during the autumn a deep silence and untiy has arises in the satsang group.

This Satsang Intensive also works as a prolonged shaktipat (transmission of spiritual energy), which both creates immediate result – together with effect that becomes obvious during the coming weeks and months after the intensive. When Giten pursued an advanced training in spiritual healing in USA 1984, he was told that he had the capacity to become a seventh chakra healer, a spiritual healer, to act as a catalyst and channel for spiritual energy from the seventh chakra through the heart. The last 30 years has meant to develop and deepen this capacity to an instrument of subtle catalytic effect, which Giten uses in this Satsang series.

Satsang with Giten gathers people from all walks of life. During the last two satsangs seekers and meditators, psychotherapists, medical doctors, nurses, ayurvedic healers and doctors, film makers from the Swedish television and musicians and music teachers have gathered.

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN, spiritual teacher and best-selling author, has more than 30 years of experience in individual counseling and in teaching awareness and meditation. He is trained in both modern psychology and in classic Eastern methods for awareness and meditation in 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.

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 have touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.

Since he began to meditate when he was 15 years old, he has dedicated his life to the study and exploration of the inner journey in order to move out of his own way, to be in a flow, and to discover the authentic inner being, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life. He does not belong to any spiritual group or tradition; he is only interested to explore what it means to live with open eyes.

Giten’s first professional passion when he was 15 years old was to become an actor. After training as an actor, he worked as an actor until he was 23 years old. Working as actor taught him a lot about life and to emphatically understand the situation and life of other people, since acting is really a spiritual occupation. It taught him about spirituality, since working as an actor means to play a role totally, while at the same time as you know deep down that you are not the role you are playing. After working as an actor for a number of years, Giten began to understand that his early passion for theatre was really an unconscious search for a spiritual discipline. When he realized this, he began to feel a thirst to work with people in a more direct way in awareness and meditation.

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”.

His three creative areas to express the mysteries of meditation in outer form are teaching, writing and painting. His meditative art is internationally recognized and have been nominated for the international art exhibition The Florence Biennale in Italy, which is arranged in cooperation with The United Nations.

He is author of the best-selling book in Swedish Meditationens Sång – Om meditation, relationer och andlig kreativitet (Solrosens forlag, 2001, available from Internet book store Adlibris:, and The Silent Whisperings of the Heart – An Introduction to Giten’s Approach to Life (2008, available as paperback at Internet book store – Working from Within.

Swami Dhyan Giten: A Glimpse of Wholeness

Giten, högt gräs, namaste
“I was 9 years old when I had my first glimpse of wholeness. It was early Christmas morning and I was standing in my pajamas in the living room and looked out of the large windows.
Outside the white snow flakes silently singled down towards a snowclad landscape. Suddenly I was filled with a feeling of being one with the slowly dancing snowflakes, one with the silent landscape.
I did not understand then that this was my first taste of meditation, but it created a deep thirst and a longing in my heart to return to this natural and effortless experience of being one with the Whole.”
– Swami Dhyan Giten

Satsang with Giten: Hassidism, Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism, August 11, 2016

Initiering, Samarpan, Giten, kram






Satsang with Giten, August 11, 2016
I was totally shaken when I came home after satsang with Giten.”
– Toshen, participant in satsang, August 18, 2016 


We will be talking about Hassidism, but first a few basic remarks as an introduction. 

One has to come in immediate contact with truth, heart to heart. Nothing should be allowed between the two: your heart and reality. 

Once you understand who you are, once you go deep into your emptiness, and you are not scared, once you accept the inner death, you have arrived at what Buddha calls “nirvana”. 

When you enter within yourself, you will feel like you are entering into a space where you are going to be lost – just as a drop of water entering the ocean is lost. 

You will be lost; that is the fear. 

That is why you become afraid of death. 

Entry into your being is always like death. 

It is a crucifixion, it is a cross. 

Only very rare and courageous souls, who can take the risk of being lost, arrive. 

You have to lose yourself to gain. 

Once you are ready to enter into the emptiness, suddenly the fear disappears. 

The same energy becomes joy and celebration. 

You can dance because that which appeared as emptiness was just an interpretation of the mind. 

It was not empty. 

Once you enter into your inner being, the mind cannot understand. 

If you move withinwards and you come across the inner emptiness,you will die. 

That is the meaning of Jesus crucifixion and resurrection. 

He is resurrected to a new life.

About Hassidism: The word “hasid” comes from the Hebrew word, which means “pure” or grace.

The whole standpoint of Hassidism is based on grace. It is not that “you” do someting – life is already happening, you just be silent, passive, alert, receiving.

God comes through his grace, not through your effort.

Hassidism believes in life, in joy.

Hassidism is one of the religions in the world, which is life-affirmative.

It has no reunciation in it.

Rather, you have to celebrate life.

The founder of Hassidism, Baal-Shem, is reported to have said: “I have come to teach a new way. It is not fasting and penenace, but a joy in God.”

Hassidism is the heart of Judaism. Hassidism is the mystical tradition of Judaism.

The Hasids loves life, tries to experience life.

That very experience start giving you a balance. And in that balance, some day, when you are really balanced, neither leaning on this side nor leaning on that side, when you are exactly in the middle, you transcend.

The middle is the beyond. If you really want to know what existence is, it is neither in life nor in death. Life is one extreme, death is another extreme. It is just exactly in the middle, where neither life is nor death is, where one is simply unborn, deathless.

In that moment of balance, grace descends.

Hassidism is to find the true joy of life. Hassidism is not a path of meditation, it is a path of love, joy and prayer.

The whole approach of Hassidism is not to choose any extreme, just to remain in the middle, not getting identified with either – just remaining free and joyously enjoying both.

If life comes, enjoy life, if death comes, enjoy death.

Hassidism teaches life in community.

It says that man is not an island, man is not an ego.

Man should live in a community.

Life is in love, life is in flow, in giving, taking and sharing you grow.

To live in a community is to live in love, to live in a community is to live in love, to live in a community is to live in a committment, caring for others.

Love more and you will be more.

There are many religions which are very self-centered, they only think of the self. They only think about how I should become liberated.

Hassdism says that the best way to drop the ego is to live in a community.

It is live with people, to be concerned with people, with their joy, with their sadness, with their happiness, with their life, and with their death.

Create a concern for others, be involved.

Hassidism uses community life as a device.

Hassidism celebrates the small things of life – eating, drinking – and then everything takes the quality of prayer.

The ordinaries of life is no longer ordinary. It is suffused with divine grace.

– Swami Dhyan Giten

A CEO for a consulting- and education company in Sweden came for an individual consultation with Giten. He said that he did not remember how he heard about Giten, but he said that he just knew that he should book an individual consultation with Giten. During the consultation he also decided to attend satsang with Giten without really knowing what satsang is.

Today John sent an email to Giten saying that he heard about Giten a few months ago on Facebook and instantly knew that he wanted to meet him. He also said that he bought Giten’s book in Swedish, “Meditationens Sång” and Giten’s book about Jesus Christ. He also said that he wanted to attend satsang with Giten.

Many of the participants in individual consultations, satsang and in satsang weekends with Giten says that same thing: that they just knew that they should attend satsang or participate in a satsang weekend with Giten without really knowing why.

The social scientist and behaviourist Anne-li Fellman said: “Satsang weekend with Giten was a super course. When I read about Satsang weekend with Giten, I just knew that I should do this course. I have missed people who really wants go as deep into the inner being that is possible, and in satsang with Giten I found this. So enjoyable to be in this presence. I just wanted to sit, see and be.”

Giten says that he appreciates that people trust themselves and trust their own intuition, the inner source of love, truth and wisdom, in guiding them to individual consultations or satsang.

LOVE, SILENCE & GOD: Eight quotes from Goodreads large collection of 164 Giten quotes

Eight quotes from Goodreads large Collection of 164 Giten quotes

“When we stop judging others and ourselves, our heart begins to open.”

― Swami Dhyan Giten, The Silent Whisperings of the Heart – An Introduction to Giten’s Approach to Life 

Giten on the Celestial Music

“During the summer I meditated outside in nature. Listening to the wind with the ears are like listening to mere noise, but listening to the wind blowing through the trees from the inner silence and being one with the wind is like listening to the celestial music.”



“I was tired in the evening yesterday. I felt drained by the last days outer conflicts. I felt separated from life. Suddenly I heard the wind blowing through the trees outside my open window, whispering a silent and playful invitation: “Do you want to play? Do you want to join the dance?” This playful invitation again joined my heart and being with the Existential dance. I was again in a silent prayer and oneness with life.”



“When we become silent, we become whole. And when we become whole, we become holy.”



A friend of mine commented yesterday that she has experienced similar insights that I talked about that all enlightened Masters and founders of religion are actually talking about the same ocean, the same invisible life source, the same God.

She also said that she worked in a Christan environment at the time that she received these insights, and when she tried to share these insights with the Christians she was accused of being “impure” and of being associated with the “Devil”.

Christians hold on to the idea that Jesus was the only son of God, without realizing that we are all son’s and daughter’s of God. By holding on to the idea that Jesus is the only son of God, they do not either to realize that all enlightened Masters are talking about the same God.

Jesus did not talk about faith, he talked about trust. He talked about discovering a trust in yourself and in relationship to God.  Jesus said that the kingdom of God is within you.  In Christianity, the church has become the intermediate between man and God, and people who claim that they have found a direct relationship to God are accused of blasphemy. The Christan church has become a barrier between man and God, and anyone who has declared that he has found a direct relationship to God are immediately banned by the church, for example Master Eckhart and Franciskus of Assisi. 

I have always had a deep love for Jesus, but it is not the picture of Jesus that the Christian church presents. I was a disciple of Jesus in a former life, and was thrown to the lions in Colosseum in Rome as one of the early Christians. Jesus had many more disciples than the twelve disciples mentioned in The Bible.

In this life, I resigned my automatic membership in the church as soon as I could think for myself when I was 15 years old. I was also disgusted with an organization that said that they preached love and which has murdered more people than Hitler.

My experience with these rare and precious insights are that they expand our consciousness of reality. They are gradual initiations into reality. They may fade away, but we will never be the same again after receiving them. They will also come more and more, the more committment we have to our spiritual growth.”



“What I basically listen to when I work with a group of people is when the moment becomes silent. Then I know that we are entering the dimension of love, truth and wholeness.”



“Meditation is the way to be with ourselves and to learn to accept our own aloneness. In aloneness, I experiment with being consciously alone as a door to be egoless. In conscious aloneness, the ego can not function. In aloneness, you are not. 

I have always been comfortable with my own aloneness as an inner source of love, joy, truth, silence and wholeness.   

When we depend on other people, it becomes a bondage – instead of a freedom. I took this sunday as a meditation to be consciously alone, and to accept all feelings of pain, of not being loved and the fear of being nobody that would come up during the meditation. This meditation goes up and down during the day: at certain moments, I can totally accept my aloneness. It feels fine to accept that I am alone and that I am nobody. At other moments, I feel the pain of not being loved, when the meditation brings up how dependence on other people is a barrier to totally accept my aloneness.

I take a coffee at a restaurant. I am the only person that sits alone in the restaurant, while the other guests are couples and families eating sunday dinner. It brings up painful feelings of not being loved and wanting to be needed by other people, when I see how much people cling to each other in the couples and the families.

Escaping your aloneness through relationships and needing other people’s attention through being a teacher, a politician or by being rich or famous, are ways of escaping the pain of aloneness. But then the relationships are not really love. Only when you are capable of being alone, you can really love.

When we can be alone, we discover the inner source of love, which is our true nature. When we can be alone, it open the door to be one with the Whole.”



“Meditation expands our inner being. The inner being is like a small, individual river flowering towards the Ocean. 

In meditation, I feel how my inner being expands into an inner ocean, which is part of everything, which is one with Existence.

Through the inner being, we come in contact with the inner ocean, the undefined and boundless within ourselves, where we are one with life. We realize that God is part of life. We realize that God is not a person, but the consciousness that is part of everything. We find God in a flower, in a tree, in the eyes of a child or in a playful dog. 

Through discovering our inner being, we discover that we are also part of the flower, the child or the dog. We realize that God is everywhere.”
