Giten, book release, Giten-Armani




17 June, 2017, in Stockholm

To the background of dancing tunes of jazz music, the book release party for Giten’s new book “Silence is the Way: The Teachings of Buddha” began with a walking table with superb ecological strawberry lemonade with delicious homemade ecological chocolate balls and mazarine cakes. 

Then Giten talked about Buddha’s 10 steps to enlightenment. Giten said that with each of the ten steps to enlightement the meditator achieves deeper realizations of emptiness in meditation. If you understand and practice these ten steps, you will attain to the ultimate. These ten steps are the Bodhisattva path to enlightenment.

Satyama Padma commented: “I have searched for truth my whole life, so what we talked about this evening was really exciting.”

Giten’s new book “Silence is the Way” is about the teachings of Buddha, which includes Giten’s own insights into this exciting journey and meditation of life. The 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.

The evening ended with silent satsang with Giten, which created a deep silence, emptiness and wholeness.

Giten’s new book is available at the international book site Lulu:

“Samadhi is knocking on the door”




 “Samadhi is knocking on the door. I am so happy that Giten conducts satsang. I never thought that samadhi was possible, but in satsang with Giten samadhi is knocking on the door.”

– Satyama Padma, participant in satsang with Giten

Giten finished this satsang weekend with silent satsang and by asking the participants what they really wanted to achieve spiritually in this life, and Satyama Padma immediately answered “to surrender to the divine.”

After the satsang weekend, Giten received beautiful lilac flowers with a fragrance from the divine.

is consciousness.

The trees, the birds, the animals and the mountains are expressions of  divine intelligence.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten,

From 1-day Satsang, April 16, 2017, in Stockholm

Love is a deep desire to bless the whole Existence

Love is the radiance, the fragrance of knowing oneself, of being oneself.

Love is overflowing joy.

Love is when you have seen that you are not separate from Existence.

Love is not a relationship, love is a state of being.

Fear is the opposite of love. In love, one expands. In fear, one shrinks. In fear, one becomes closed. In love, one opens.

In fear, one doubts. In love, one trusts.

Do not be afraid, this Existence is not your enemy. This existence loves you, this existence is ready to support you in any way.

Trust and you will feel a new overflowing energy. That energy is love. That energy wants to bless the whole existence. Because of this energy, one feels blessed.

Love is a deep desire to bless the whole Existence.

– Swami Dhyan Giten

Darshan with Giten: Grace, Love and Truth Go Together – Initiation with Satayama Padma, 2016-10-07







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 scent from heaven. 

The next darshan Giten will be a combined Christmas celebration with satsang in December.


Satsang Weekend with Giten: Divine Healing, December 9-11, 2016

Initiering, Samarpan, Giten, kram
Satsang Weekend 
with Giten:

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: 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.com:www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten)Presence – Working from Within. The Psychology of Being (2011, available as paperback at Internet book store Lulu:www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten), Meditation – A Yes to LifeHealing Is Pure LovePresence – The Inner Source of Love, Truth and Wholeness and The Language of Silence – From Darkness to Light (available in paperback at Lulu.com: www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten). The last four books are also available as free e-books at the award winning book site Obooko.com).

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


The Existential Heartbeat(300dpi), Giten Art


“It is astonishing to realize that growing up actually means to become one with Existence.

It means to find the whole Existence within myself, it means to discover that Existence is alive in my own heart and being. The song of a bird echoes my own inner voice, the beauty of a flower reflects my own inner beauty, a dog becomes an expression of my own unconditional love and friendship, the majestic mountains create an exstatic joy, and I discover all the shining stars of the sky within my own heart.

It is to realize that the whole Existence is alive, and that the underlying thread of consciousness is God.”

– Swami Dhyan Giten

“Thank you for a wonderful day.” 

– Deva Emanuel, musician and participant during Giten’s birthday. 

 Giten’s birthday on May 15, 2016, was celebrated with satsang, initiation and introduction to working with people from love, truth and silence. 

Marie, psychotherapist, who has done satsang and courses with Giten since 25 years, was initiated and was born again as Prem Samarpan, which Giten gave the spiritual meaning: Prem, love, and Samarpan, surrender, to let go. Giten described the spiritual meaning of Samarpans name: “Love is to surrender yourself. Love is to surrender yourself to the other person, love is to surrender to the whole.” 

Iiris, special teacher for autistic children, was also initiated and was born again as Prem Iiris, which Giten gave the spiritual meaning Prem, love, and Iiris, wholeness. Giten described the spiritual meaning of her new name: “Love creates healing and wholeness. Then you are not separated from the world. Then you are not a foreigner in the world. Then existence is your home.”

“It is astonishing to realize that growing up actually means to become one with Existence. It means to find the whole Existence within myself, it means to discover that Existence is alive in my own heart and being.

The song of a bird echoes my own inner voice, the beauty of a flower reflects my own inner beauty, a dog becomes an expression of my own unconditional love and friendship, the majestic mountains create an exstatic joy, and I discover all the shining stars of the sky within my own heart.
It is to realize that the whole Existence is alive, and that the underlying thread of consciousness is God.”

“I could not have wished for a more beautiful initiation.
I felt such a love for everybody after the initiation.” 
– Prem Mukta, who was initiated by Giten on June, 12, 2014
Initiering, Lotta + Giten
Initiation into freedom is basically a way of living life
consciously, in meditation and celebration, a life lived in oneness with Existence, inspired by the vision of spiritual teacher Swami Dhyan Giten.
Initiation into Freedom is an experience of the heart. It is an initiation into the ancient path of truth, an initiation into the invisible path.
Initiation + Kalyani + Giten
Initiation into Freedom is a sincere commitment to yourself and to your own spiritual growth. It is a statement that the most important thing in your life is meditation, to become more aware, more conscious and more awake. Initiation into Freedom is a surrender to the truth of your own being.
Initiation, bara Kalyani
Initiation into Freedom happens inside the being of the individual. It is conscious choice of the sincere seeker of love and truth, who have a deep commitment to truth. Previous experience of meditation is recommended.
Initiation med Lotta, bara Lotta
Giten has initiated people to the path of truth with people who surrendered to him in their hearts through creating an inner initiation in their inner being for 30 years, but he has not formally initiated people before. But now the time seems ripe to begin to initiate sincere seekers of truth.
Initiation into freedom is not a religion or an organization, it is a statement by the individual. Initiation into freedom is based on the Indian sannyasin tradition, but it is not a reunciation from the world. It is a life affirmative confirmation that embraces all aspects of life, meditation, relationships and creativity.
Initiation ceremonies will be performed in connection to Satsang evenings with Giten. Initiation can also be done by mail.
In initiation into freedom, Giten will observe you and find out:
1. What type you are
2. How much work you have done in your past lives
3. Where you are right at this moment in your spiritual growth
4. At what center you are functioning right now
5. Decision about meditative methods that will be helpful for you.
Based on this observation, Giten will give you a new name, your spiritual name, with a meaning that will denote the pathway that you will travel on and an individual quality that will be be a guidance on your spiritual path. You will also receive a necklace symbolizing the oneness of life.
