Skrattande Deva

Giten received a beautiful seleonite crystal from Shanti Deva, which expressed her gratefulness for satsang with Giten. 

 She said: “I am so happy to participate in satsang with Giten, which open a totally new dimension in my life.” 

 The selenite crystal is one of the most healing crystals, which brings down healing and mysterious energy from the highest levels of existence. The crystal stands on a lamp, which now makes it dance in all colours of the rainbow during satsang with Giten.

“Satsang with Giten is like a scent, a flowering of “This is it!” Giten do a fantastic work with satsang. Satsang with Giten is like satsang in India. I was so afraid to lose the silence that I found in satsang in India, but I found the silence again in satsang with Giten. Earlier I did not think that enlightenment was possible, but now I Think that it is possible.”

– Satyama Padma, participant in satsang with Giten

 “Please excuse my mistake. This satsang weekend has been & gone. Next one next year. Please let me know if you can. Cliffyxx Namaste.”

During this satsang weekend Giten will turn a meditator’s eye to the mist of fear and misunderstandingd that surrounds the phenomenon of death He will clarify the myths and share a vision about death that is both practical and deeply mystical.

This satsang weekend will be supported by silent satsang with Giten, Satsang with Giten is a meeting in love, truth and silence. It is a direct insight and experience into being. It is a new way to be, which can transform your entire life.

The Upanishad’s is India’s unique insight into the mysteries of life and the Katho Upanishad is unique among the books of the Upanishads. The Katho Upanishad is the unique insight and wisdom of India, which is about the reality of death and the dimensions beyond death. A seeker who wants to understand life needs to go through the experience of death.

To learn to understand life is to learn the art of death. Somebody who is afraid of life is afraid of death since death is the deepest mystery of life. Only those that meet death consciously with a welcoming heart can really learn to know life.

During this satsang weekend, Giten will reveal the myths of death. He will share a vision of life and death that is both highly practical and esoteric.

Giten’s comments during this satsang weekend will create light around a theme that concerns us all and it willl help us to understand the secrets of life and immortality.



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.”

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, Presence – Working from Within.
