PADMA ABOUT SATSANG WITH GITEN:
“I NEVER THOUGHT THAT SAMADHI WAS POSSIBLE, BUT IN SATSANG WITH GITEN, SAMADHI IS KNOCKING ON THE DOOR”

“Satsang with Giten is heaven.

“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.

I never thought that samadhi was possible, but in satsang with Giten, samadhi is knocking on the door.”

Giten is currently editing his new book “When the Drop becomes the Ocean” on the Upanishads, the insight and wisdom of India

Padma in satsang with Giten

 

GITEN IS CURRENTLY EDITING HIS NEW BOOK “WHEN THE DROP BECOMES THE OCEAN” ON THE UPANISHADS, THE INSIGHT AND WISDOM OF INDIA

 

“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 satsang series is a journey to the ocean, to the divine.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

 

Giten is currently compiling the book “when the Drop becomes the Ocean.”, which will be published in August, 2020.   

 The book is a compilation of lectures from satsang with Giten on the Upanishads, the insight and wisdom of India, between March 2016 and July 2018 in Stockholm. 

The book is dedicated to Padma, Gitens beloved friend since many lives, who participated in the satsang on The Upanishads.

 

  Don´t lose the quality  

The foreword to the book by Deva Emanuel

  From Deva Emanuel’s beautiful, insightful, honest and humorous foreword, which is also a tribute to Padma, whome the book is dedicated to.

The Upanishads is where the outer joy caused by outer circumstances gradually cools, loses its grip and disappears. At the point where impulses are born out of an inner depth, a being. From a spontaneous gap from the sensations, the silence flushes over me. The sensations and the identification with “me” no longer exist – and this is joy. The deeper the emptiness, the more joy. Here is home, here is bliss of the divine, amen.

Upanishads & satsang

In order to describe the Upanishads, the focus is instead pointing at satsang as the central tool. In contrast to traditional Western education – where the students from a very early age learns to obey orders and obtain knowledge from outer sources – the student’s focus is here on the inner work and to involve himself totally. Satsang challenge the student so that he gradually deepens his own inner listening.

Satsang with Giten has continuously challenged me and taken me deeper in myself. The core of this process is to become conscious of what is standing between me and being in contact with my inner being. The environment within warms, softens and relaxes inside in this first “witness”-phase. The moment I lose identification with “myself”, I slip into the phase of silence, and here there is no longer any mantra, prayer, ideology or judgments left – this is just being.

Satsang reminds me of experiences I have previously had from spontaneous presence. Some time ago before I had any knowledge of what meditation was, I was finding myself in a series of bomb attacks in London. Exhausted after being forced to walk for hours, I settled into a bookshop to rest. Suddenly the London police were heard in the speakers at the cafe and we were ordered to sit still and wait while the area was searched. Presence increased, fatigue disappeared, everything became very clear and intense – and every moment was precious.

After a few minutes, the London police were again heard in the speakers. The area was secured and all visitors were free to go. I walked out of the store and straightened my way home. The same streets passed, the same houses and English gardens were passed, but still changed. Everything was suddenly so incredibly fragile and beautiful. Although in the outer feelings I was filled with worry and with eyes filled with tears, there was inside me a deep, warm, dark, emptiness. Out of contact with this inner quality that remained for a day, new strange inspirational flows arose. Life felt precious, fragile, beautiful and inspired, and the next day with a guitar in my hand, astonishing three new songs were written, even though I almost never composed before.

In satsang with Giten, I notice how this quality of presence is not a static phenomenon. The meditative quality changes, is refined, goes deeper and has many different flavors. Nor does satsang develop any “sit beautifully in lotus”-ambition or become a “better” high-performing person. The dream that yoga- and meditation images from the health food magazines sell – where breathing exercises and pills should make me more useful for the market – has totally disappeared.

Meditation has instead gradually developed an inner source that embraces and accepts my own joy and myself as I already am. This has given me insights into the process of how love comes from within.

Life teaches through both positive experiences and failures. I remember a while ago when I was about to take a new step in life. The situation accentuated an unconscious inner self-doubt in me. I had become stuck in an hesitation unable to give myself to the risks it meant to nurture myself, my joy and my creativity. As a result, my outer most significant relationship with my then girlfriend, who wanted to be flowing in a living relationship, also got tired and totally broke with me. There I stood and had to bitterly taste the non-existent harvest that the lack of love in myself brought up and the pain was a fact.

Padma & The mystery school

In ordinary relationships I often repeat a kind of sluggishness and boredom. It was like a total shock to me to start acquainting myself with Padma. Before that, my meditation worked mostly as a “magic carpet”, where I could fly away to some kind of isolated mountain monastery for a moment’s rest from reality. Here, my worldview was completely shaken and turned upside down. By swinging this meditative hammock with Padma, my meditation has instead integrated into the world in a complete new way that I could never have imagined.

Life here in the West usually educates man in the choice between the two belief systems heaven and capital – with excessive belief in capital before retirement age and the belief in heaven after retirement age. In the relationship with Padma, I rather notice how the focus on practice meditation, instead of theory will be increasingly accentuated. Here I also notice how my own belief systems and theories of reincarnation are challenged – and just fall to the practical living fact in the humor and love from Padma.
Another memory while Padma was still in the body was when she brought me to the sea and we just sat and played didgeridoo. Then it happened to me what happens in satsang with Giten. There were no words and suddenly there was just such a beauty and synchronicity between us, the music, the nature and the sea. I was so happy and this insight taught me more about the importance of also consciously practice the process to come back after meditation. I experience more and more how all the qualities and gifts that come from my meditation melts together in a calm inner smile. A desire is gradually developed to be able to give back some of this beauty to the earth, life and existence. These keys open within me new doors to the unknown.
The Emergence of The mystery school

There is an even more subtle aspect of synchronicity that has been developed during satsang with Giten that is so difficult to define. This cornerstone also relates to the process of exploring and understanding the Upanishads. Padma, who also participated during the satsangs about the Upanishads, burst out lyrically and called the phenomenon for the emergence of a “mystery school”.

With this phenomenon I notice how my meditation has gone so much deeper. It is more quiet and easier to come back to silence. Something new arises out of this synchronicity with hearts and belongingness with nature.

From this contact a wish wells up to give back to nature, the earth, life and existence. Only a moment of this meditative relationship with nature and my whole perspective on life changes into a view I could never have figured ten years ago. Coming back after one of these moments create such healing. Right here, competition, power games and mind games and to continually adapting and improving myself, just becomes so distant. It falls away. From this quality, I am also mysteriously linked to the music again. That’s despite a number of really powerful efforts to stop playing music through my life.
Don´t lose the quality

One of the last sentences that Padma pointed out, before we separated physically for the last time on the subway after satsang with Giten, was just about honoring this cornerstone, “don’t lose the quality”.

Swami Dhyan Giten: Be Authentic and Listen to Yourself

Giten, foto, meditation, gul tröja

Be Authentic and Listen to Yourself

FROM THE SATSANG SERIES AWARENESS & SPIRITUAL MATURITY WITH GITEN, 28 MAY, 2020, IN STOCKHOLM

 

“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.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

Mysteries of Life: Awareness & Spiritual Maturity. Satsang with Giten in Stockholm. May – July, 2020

Giten i Tibet, sittande vid träd i meditation

Mysteries of Life:

Awareness & Spiritual Maturity

 

  Satsang with Giten in Stockholm

 

May – July, 2020, 

Ten Thursday evenings

 

What is awareness? What is spiritual maturity? What does it mean to grow up to spiritual maturity instead of just growing old? And how does awareness help to achieve spiritual maturity? 

Life is an ongoing journey. Your consciousness is as large as the universe.  In this satsang series Giten takes us back to the roots of what it means to grow up spiritually, instead of just growing old. Both in our relationship to ourselves, in our relationships with others, and in the fulfillment of our own individual destinies, in this course Giten will remind us of the joy that only true maturity can bring. 

Spiritual maturity is to awaken to your silence and nothingness. This is the difficulty: maturity will never give you the idea of nothingness. But unless you touch your inner space, which is nothingness as silent and empty as the sky – it is your inner sky. Once you settle down in your inner sky, you have found a home and a great maturity arises in your actions, in your behavior. Then whatever you do has grace in it. Then whatever you do is poetry in itself. You live poetry; your walking becomes dancing, your silence becomes music.

By maturity is meant that you have come home. You are no more a child who has to grow – you have grown up. You have touched the height of your potential. For the first time, in a strange sense you are not, and you are. You are not in your old ideas, imaginations, in your old comprehension of yourself; all that has gone down the drain. 

You have become a stranger to the miserable world. You don’t create misery for yourself or for anybody else. You live your life in total freedom, without any consideration for what others will say.

In this course we will explore two topics to understand how awareness creates spiritual maturity: 

  1. Awareness – the master key to life, love and freedom: A man can live in two ways: he can live from the ego, from the periphery of his consciousness or he can live from his being, his center. When he lives from his periphery, he is further away from himself. When he lives from his center, he is close to himself. In this course, Giten will talk about awareness as the master key to discover our inner being, our innermost core. 

Underlying all meditation techniques is a quality of being awake and present to the moment, a quality that is called awareness. Once we can identify and understand what this quality of awareness is, we have the key to self-mastery in virtually every area of our lives.

According to Buddha most of us move through our lives like sleepwalkers. Never really present in what we are doing, never fully alert to our environment, and not even aware of what motivates us to do and say the things we do.

At the same time, all of us have experienced moments of awareness -or awakening. On the road, in a sudden and unexpected accident, time seems to stop and one is suddenly aware of every movement, every sound, every thought. Or in moments that touch us deeply-welcoming a new baby into the world for the first time, or being with someone at the moment of death.

Awareness is the master key to become centered and free in every aspect of our lives. In this course, Giten teaches how to live life more attentively, mindfully, and meditatively, with love, caring and consciousness.

Awareness is the method to wake up your being, to help you to become mature, to realize that you are immortal, and – ultimately – to make you one with the whole.

  1. Spiritual maturity: Spiritual maturity is to realize that we are part of life. In this course Giten will also outline the ten major growth cycles in human life, the ten challenges of growing up physically, psychologically and spiritually, from the self-centered universe of the preschooler to the flowering of wisdom and compassion in old age. 

This satsang series withb Giten is about the mysteries of life, it is about the deeper meaning and purpose of our lives , which is, ultimately, to flower into our own individual uniqueness and maturity with an attitude of celebration and joy.

Giten will also speak about the art of living, maturity and aging, maturity of spirit, the laws of aging, old age as the door to wisdom, the mature relationship, dependence, needing, loving and giving and that death is not the end.

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

  Now something new can arise in you, absolutely new and virgin, which transforms your whole life into joy.  

   If you become alert and aware of your being, you are blessed.

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN  

Swami Dhyan Giten, spiritual teacher and author, has more than 30 years of experience in individual counselling 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”.

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.

Satsang with Giten 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 satsang.

Silence is the only way to convey truth – from one silent heart to another silent heart. A man of silence moves with a certain field of energy around him, and if you are receptive, his vibe starts touching your heart. Giten has developed a quality of subtle catalytic effect, which can help you to a direct insight and realization of being. It is a silent transmission from one silent heart to another silent heart. Participants in the 1-day Satsang Intensive with Giten commented that there occurred spontaneous moments of deep silence and emptiness. The Satsang participant Prem Mukta said: “Giten’s work is of the beyond, it leads you beyond yourself, which I love.”

He is author of the best-selling book in Swedish Meditationens Sång – Om meditation, relationer och kreativitet (Solrosens forlag, 2001, available from Internet book store Adlibris: www.adlibris.com), and The Silent Whisperings of the Heart – An Introduction to Giten’s Approach to Life (2008, available as paperback at Internet book store Lulu: www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten) and as free e-book at Obooko.com), Presence – Working from Within. The Psychology of Being (2011, available at Internet book store Lulu: www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten), Meditation – A Yes to Life, Healing Is Pure Love, PresenceThe Inner Source of Love, Truth and Wholeness and The Language of Silence – From Darkness to Light (the last four books are available as free e-books at Obooko.com).

Recommendations, quotes and discussions of Giten’s articles and books and its content are also beginning to appear with increasing frequency in magazines and on sites ranging from The Times of India, the largest daily English newspaper in the World, USA Today, the largest daily newspaper in the US, the US news site Newsblaze, Edge Life Magazine, a leading source for psychology, education and world transformation in the US, and Sentient Times Magazine to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to small discussion forums and blogs focused on spirituality, health, art and literature.

 

 “Giten is a really beautiful soul” 

–         Swami Anand Arun, Tapoban Meditation Center, Nepal

 ”While I cannot express enough how grateful I am to receive your paintings, please know I sincerely appreciate your kindness and good thought. There are so many people in this world who are in keen need of your energies that, in keeping with The Kindness Chain, I ask you to consider sharing your good will with them in the future.” 

–         Oprah, The Oprah Winfrey Show, USA  

“Giten is really a Master of love and silence. Authentic on his way and self. A loving man, who knows the science of truth, love and life.”

– Prem Pathik, India 

“The religious words that Giten formulate can make anyone mentally stunned. These words create an inner silence and a deep spiritual wonder for life. Giten has shaken me. I hope the readers also discover his greatness.”

-Brage Norin, professor in theoretical physics, Sweden

“Since I began to study with Giten, a new dimension of consciousness has developed step by step, which has transformed my whole life.”

– Deva Emanuel, musician and student to Giten since 7 years.

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

  Now something new can arise in you, absolutely new and virgin, which transforms your whole life into joy.  

   If you become alert and aware of your being, you are blessed.  

 

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN  

Swami Dhyan Giten, spiritual teacher and author, has more than 30 years of experience in individual counselling 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”.

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.

Satsang with Giten 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 satsang.

Silence is the only way to convey truth – from one silent heart to another silent heart. A man of silence moves with a certain field of energy around him, and if you are receptive, his vibe starts touching your heart. Giten has developed a quality of subtle catalytic effect, which can help you to a direct insight and realization of being. It is a silent transmission from one silent heart to another silent heart. Participants in the 1-day Satsang Intensive with Giten commented that there occurred spontaneous moments of deep silence and emptiness. The Satsang participant Prem Mukta said: “Giten’s work is of the beyond, it leads you beyond yourself, which I love.”

He is author of the best-selling book in Swedish Meditationens Sång – Om meditation, relationer och kreativitet (Solrosens forlag, 2001, available from Internet book store Adlibris: www.adlibris.com), and The Silent Whisperings of the Heart – An Introduction to Giten’s Approach to Life (2008, available as paperback at Internet book store Lulu: www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten) and as free e-book at Obooko.com), Presence – Working from Within. The Psychology of Being (2011, available at Internet book store Lulu: www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten), Meditation – A Yes to Life, Healing Is Pure Love, PresenceThe Inner Source of Love, Truth and Wholeness and The Language of Silence – From Darkness to Light (the last four books are available as free e-books at Obooko.com).

Recommendations, quotes and discussions of Giten’s articles and books and its content are also beginning to appear with increasing frequency in magazines and on sites ranging from The Times of India, the largest daily English newspaper in the World, USA Today, the largest daily newspaper in the US, the US news site Newsblaze, Edge Life Magazine, a leading source for psychology, education and world transformation in the US, and Sentient Times Magazine to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to small discussion forums and blogs focused on spirituality, health, art and literature.

WISDOM OF THE HEART: INTUITION & INTELLIGENCE with Swami Dhyan Giten during the Easter, 11-12 April, 2020 in Stockholm

WISDOM OF THE HEART: INTUITION & INTELLIGENCE

– INTUITION, THE INNER GUIDE, THE MASTER WITHIN

with spiritual teacher and mystic Swami Dhyan Giten

During the Easter, Saturday and Sunday, 11-12 April, 2020 in Stockholm

 

Wisdom comes from the heart. Wisdom comes from the innermost depth of your being, not the intellect.

Our intuition is the inner teacher, the inner guide, the inner master.

The old Indian scriptures say that the outer spiritual teacher is helpful to find your own intuition, your own inner teacher, your truth.

Intuition is to create a trust in yourself and in your intuition, your inner guide, the inner master. Intuition is to learn to listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you.

You have to be silent, quiet, so you can listen to the still small voice within you, and then follow it. Wherever it leads, it is good. Go in deep trust, following your own voice.

The more you come in contact with the inner silence, the inner emptiness, the more you have access to your intuition. Silence is the nourishment for intuition. If something increases your love, joy and silence, it is the criterion that it is the right path for you. If something decreases your love, joy and silence, it is a sign that you are on the wrong path.

Do not compare yourself with others when it comes to take a decision about what you should do, follow the love, joy and silence of your heart and inner being. When you are in contact with your inner silence, you just know what you should do – you do not have to think about it, and you do not need not compare the pros and cons – you just know.You can listen to the advice of others, but always listen to your intuition, to your inner teacher and guide in life, when you take the final decision. The intuition, the language of silence, will always lead your right.

In 1982, Giten 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.”

Intuition means something that arises from within inner being. Intuition is the voice of being and consciousness. It is your potential, which is why it is called intuition. Unless you have your intuition, unless you have your own wisdom, your own vision, your own clarity, your own eyes to see, you will not be able to understand the mystery of existence. To give meaning to your life, to your heart, existence has given intuition to your heart. Out of intuition arises the possibilities of art, of love, of friendship – intuition will lead you to wisdom, to enlightenment. Then your life is a life of immense light, joy and serenity.

Intuition makes a man wise – call it enlightenment or awakening, those are simply different names from wisdom.

Intuition brings meaning to life, joy, blessings. Intuition gives you the secrets of existence, brings a tremendous silence, which cannot be disturbed and which cannot be taken away from you.
During this course Giten will talk about the following topic to help us developing a trust in ourselves and in our intuition: the three levels of the human consciousness: the head, the heart and the being, hinders to developing intuition: knowledge, intellect and politics and strategies to help developing a trust in ourselves and in our intuition: moving from head, to heart to being, happiness as a criteria for intuition and meditation and silence.

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

   Giten in harmony med nature

The last words of Gautama the Buddha on the earth were: Be a light unto yourself. Do not follow others, because following creates stupidity. You are born with a light within you. You are enough to yourself. You are sufficient to yourself. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you. Nobody else can guide you, nobody else can become a model for your life because you are unique. Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of our own consciousness, and foolishness as following others.

Buddha says, “BE A LIGHT UNTO YOURSELF!” That is his greatest message. This very message of Buddha functions as a reminder to all the seekers of truth – on the path of enlightenment.

Nobody else in the whole world, in the whole history of humanity, has been so respectful towards others as Gautam the Buddha. “Be a light unto yourself.”

Buddhas only point the way — fingers pointing to the moon. YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW, AND YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW ACCORDING TO YOUR NATURE. You have to be silent, quiet, so you can listen to the still small voice within you, and then follow it. Wherever it leads, it is good.

GO IN DEEP TRUST, FOLLOWING YOUR OWN VOICE. Be spontaneous, natural, ordinary. This is the way of being extraordinary. Be ordinary but aware, and the ordinary becomes the sacred.

A buddha has not to be followed, but understood. A buddha has not to be imitated but listened to — listened to in tremendous silence, love, trust. And the more you understand a buddha, the more you will feel he is speaking not from the outside but from within, from the very core of your being. 

In this satsang weekend series we will also explore five keys to spiritual maturity:

1. Be a light to yourself: The last words of Gautama the Buddha on the earth were: Be a light unto yourself. Do not follow others, because following creates stupidity. You are born with a light within you. You are enough to yourself. You are sufficient to yourself. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you. .Buddha defines wisdom as living in the light of our own consciousness. This very message of Buddha functions as a reminder to all the seekers of truth – on the path of enlightenment.

2. Intuition, the inner guide, the inner master: Creating a trust in yourself and in your intuition, your inner guide, the inner master. Listen to the still, small voice within, and that will guide you. You have to be silent, quiet, so you can listen to the still small voice within you, and then follow it. Wherever it leads, it is good. Go in deep trust, following your own voice.

Intuition means something that arises from within inner being. Intuition is the voice of being and consciousness. It is your potential, which is why it is called intuition. Unless you have your intuition, unless you have your own wisdom , your own vision, your own clarity, your own eyes to see, you will not be able to understand the mystery of existence.

To give meaning to your life, to your heart, existence has given intuition to your heart. Out of intution arises the possibilities of art, of love, of friendship – intuition will lead you to wisdom, to enlightenment. Then your life is a life of immense light, joy and serenity.

Intuition makes a man wise- call it enlightenment or awakening, those are simply different names from wisdom.
Intuition brings meaning to life, joy, blessings. Intuition gives you the secrets of existence, brings a tremendous silence, which cannot be disturbed and which cannot be taken away from you.
 

3. Love, freedom and aloneness: One of the most significant teachings of Buddha is to love yourself and watch. Love yourself and watch are Buddha’s two steps of meditation. Just as food is nourishment for the body; love is nourishment for the soul. Without nourishment for the soul, the body becomes weak. Without nourishment of love, the soul becomes weak.

You have been made afraid of being in love with yourself, which is the first step of love. A man who loves himself respects himself. And a man who loves and respects himself loves and respects others. He becomes aware that we are not different: we are one. In the foundation, we are part of one nature. A man who loves himself starts overflowing, so that his love starts reaching others. You love other people, you love animals, flowers and trees.

Love makes you a spiritual force. Love yourself, says Buddha, this can transform the whole world.

Love begins with yourself, and then it can spread. Love yourself, says Buddha, and then he adds, and watch. That is Buddha’s word for meditation. The first step is to love yourself, and the second step is to watch. Love is the first step to know yourself.If you do not love yourself, you will never know yourself. Love your body, love your mind and love your soul. Watching is meditation. It is Buddha’s name for meditation. He says: Be aware, be alert and be conscious.

The first step in meditation is to love yourself, to respect and accept yourself as you are. The second step in meditation is to watch – watch when you take a walk, watch when you eat and watch when you spend time with friends. 

4. Joy that comes from within: Giten posits that to be joyful is the basic nature of life. Joy is the spiritual dimension of happiness, in which one begins to understand one’s intrinsic value and place inthe universe.

Accepting joy is a decision to “go with the flow,” to begrateful to be alive and for all the challenges and opportunities in life,rather than setting conditions or demands for happiness.Joy is the essence of our life. That even unhappiness has its roots in joy.

Giten shares a unique perspective of accepting joy by being grateful for our life with its challenges and opportunities rather than placing a demand or setting conditions for it. Giten urges us to reconnect with the natural joy that we were born with, and that is available to us the moment we turn our attention to the silent space within. 

5. Spiritual creativity – Being in harmony with existence. Spiritual creativity is an attitude to life. Spiritual creativity is to be in harmony with existence, spirtual creativity is to act in harmony with existence. Spiritual creativity has nothing to do with a certain activity that you do. Spiritual creativity has to do with the presence, love, joy and silence that you give to the activity that you do. Then everything can be creative.

This satsang weekend is supported by silent satsang with Giten, which is a direct insight and realization of being. It is a direct realization to be a light to yourself.
