 ett utdrag från Gitens bok on Jesus Kristus


Hej Giten,

Läste det du nu skrev på FB, om GANGA HOFFMANs förtal. Jag vet att du tidigare skrivit att de förtalar dig, och jag begriper inte varför. Enligt det jag begriper så bottnar det mesta av människans destruktivitet ur rädslor.

 Det enda du gör är att du är en ”andlig lärare”, inte en ”andlig ledare”. Kan det vara så simpelt att Ganga ser Dig Giten som en konkurrent? Någon som drar potentiella kunder från dem själva? Eller tycker de att du har ”fel sanning” som strider eller konkurrerar med deras sanning? Varför skulle Ganga och sannyasorganisationen vara rädda för dig?


 Jag själv känner inombords att andlighet & medialitet inte är något som skall blanda in girighet i. Naturligvis behöver de som gör extraordinära insattser få kompensation, med det är inte girighet. Olika andliga lärare förmedlar oftast samma budskap/sanning med olika förklaringar, olika aspekter. Men kärnan de vill förmedla är dessamma. Det är ju som fingret som pekar på månen, budskapet är månen, inte fingret som pekar på månen. Vi väljer alla intuativt vilket finger som får oss att se på månen. Många fingrar försöker få oss att se på månen, men en majoriteten väljer att enbart se på fingret, och gärna diskutera det. Om nu Ganga är en av fingrarna, varför försöker hon då slå bort andra fingrar?

Jag lyssnar ofta på dina satsanger från youtube. Tack Giten! Tack att du är så generös och gör dessa åtkomlig för så många. Jag känner igen så mycket av det du berättar, det främst från en bok som jag läst flertal gånger, som berört mig mest: ”Den sanna revolutionen : en berättelse om ett uppvaknande” av Nukunu Larsen. Han är idag också en andlig lärare, en av mina närmaste vänner var flitig på hans (svin-)dyra kurser. Inget för mig.

Jag ska någon dag boka tid med dig, vet inte när, men jag kommer återkomma då det fungerar för mig.

Tills dess… ha en så underbar sommar

An excerpt from the book “Jesus Christ: The Way, The Truth and the Life

The book is a compilation of lectures during Satsang with Giten on Jesus Christ

Matthew 13



People were not so offended with Buddha or Lao Tzu as people were offended with Jesus.

With Buddha, he is so far away that you either do not understand him, or people could understand that he was the essence of the Upanishads.

With Jesus, people were offended, because he was just like them. They could not understand him. The said: “We know him! Isn’t he the carpenter’s son!”.

Buddha was also the son of a king, while Jesus was a carpenter’s son.

People could not understand. From where comes his wisdom?

They were offended, their ego was offended.



It has happened so many times that the people who are closest will always misunderstand.

We could expect the contrary, that the people of Jesu’s village would understand him first. The pepople of Jesu’s house, his family, his relatives, would understand him first.

But that does not happen.

A deep insight into the human ego is needed to understand it.

With those that are closest to you, it is very difficult to believe that they had gone beyond and above you.

If somebody else, who is not close to you, goes beyond you. the competetive ego does not arise.

But if your brother goes. and you are left behind, your ego is hurt.

You feel defeated, a failure. Then the easiest way is to deny that he has gone beyond.

Jesus offended his own village, family and relatives.

They knew Jesus’ birth date, they knew his father, his mother, his brothers and sisters.

So Jesus can not be forgive.

Jesus is a quality of love, but to be able to see this quality, you have to drop your ego.

The presence, the quality of Jesus offends, because you will feel that you have failed.

His very being, his presence, offends you.

With Jesus there are tow qualities: either you follow him or you deny him, you become an enemy.

When Jesus was crucified, many felt a relief.

Very rare people could follow Jesus, because they were ready to drop their egos.

And even those that followed Jesus, hesitated and had doubts before they could say yes, before they can trust.

Jesus is a total yes to life, a total trust in life.

Swami Dhyan Giten: Our political leaders are psychopaths

Our political and economical leaders are psychopaths. The corrupt so-called democratic governments – who are puppets in the hands of the rich and wealthy, who think themselves to be above the law – who supported the illegal war on Iraq, which killed 1 million men, woman and children, are now condemning the situation in Russia and Ukraine.
These people are so empty and destructive that their only way to communicate and relate are through conflict and war.
The Swedish conservative foreign minister Carl Bildt, who was a lobbyist for the war in Iraq, is now talking about law and morality in Russia and Ukraine. It is interesting to hear a person who sold his soul long ago for power and money talk about morality.

Swami Dhyan Giten: The Silent Revolution of the Heart – The Challenge for the 21st Century


From Fear to Love, 

from Darkness to Light

and from Separation to Wholeness
An excerpt from Swami Dhyan Giten’s book “Presence – Working from within. The Psychology of Being” (, 2012) 
The challenge for the 21st century is The Silent Revolution of the Heart. It is not a revolution within an organization or a land in the traditional sense with violence, madness and blood shed. It is a revolution in human consciousness.
In society today there exists a deep split between the inner and outer world, between intellect and intuition, between male and female qualities, between rest and activity and between outer knowledge and inner wisdom. There is a rapid technological development in the society, but we seem to forget the most important factor: our self.
Humanity as a whole is in-between power and the heart in its psychological and spiritual development process towards spiritual maturity. The next step for humanity as a whole is to realize that real power is love and compassion.The power chakra is the centre of the ego, the separated sense of “I”. The power chakra is about control, power and dominance over other people. A person who is on the development level of the power chakra wants to change other people, but he does not want to change himself.Ordinary relationships are often power relationships, which is a fight and struggle between the partners needs and mine. Often the partner in a power relationship has the same strength to develop the power chakra.The society is created out of the ego, and the need of the ego to create a hierarchy with power, status, respect, position, norms, roles and conformity. Many people in the West live in the power chakra, and are occupied with competing with others, to prove that they are somebody important, and finding their place in the hierarchy.

During the 20th Century has the psychological development level of humanity been on the awareness level of the power chakra? The focus of humanity has been on power, dominance, position, money and control over energy resources. We are technologically developed and this technology governs the development of the society, but this technology is at the same time destroying the earth. Energy resources are also a distinguishing theme in the power balance between countries.

Acting aggressively has its roots in fear, judgments and insecurity. Violence and aggressiveness is about control and dominance over another person. To judge and to be loving is two sides of the same coin. Judgments about another person are really about yourself. When we stop judging others and ourselves, our hearts opens. The heart is a healer that transforms fear to love, judgments to acceptance and separation to wholeness. The heart heals.

The 21st century means an inner awakening. It means a time to grow up. Many people talk about spirituality, meditation and inner development but it does not seem to change their lives. Our spiritual development depends on our commitment to our own development. We can use our free will to take on the challenge of life to grow or we can choose not to grow. This is the freedom that life gives us and it our own responsibility, but it seems that it is few people that accept life’s challenge to grow.

The 21st century represents a choice between the separation of ego and the vision of the heart. The silent revolution of the heart is a shift in human consciousness from the short-sighted perspective of the ego of “me” and “mine” to the focus of the heart on love and the needs of the other. It is a shift in consciousness from the short-sighted separation of the ego to the vision of the heart.

When we follow the way of the ego, the path of endless desires, it leads to struggle, conflict, exhaustion and separation from the Whole. The way of the heart is about learning to listen to our heart, to our inner source of love, joy, truth and wisdom. It is to be in a deep harmony with Existence.

When our heart is closed it creates an isolated and lonely feeling together with the attitude: “Nobody loves me”, “nobody cares about me” and “life is a struggle”, which makes us not see the love that is all around us.

A silent revolution of the heart happens when we start to care about another person, and it is a joy to put the needs of the other person before our own needs. It is on the awareness level of the heart that we begin to develop the sensitivity and awareness that makes us care about another person. The heart operates from the premises: I am responsible and only love works.

Love is to eat pizza with our beloved partner even though we hate pizza.

Our heart is the door to unconditional love both for ourselves and others. Our heart is really always open, but our judgments about ourselves and others keep it closed. When we stop judging ourselves and others, our heart begins to open. The way to healing is to learn to love and accept ourselves unconditionally. It means to embrace both our positive and negative sides with love and understanding. It means to learn to love everything that we find within ourselves.

We have been taught to love others, but not to love ourselves. But how can we love others without loving ourselves? The ABC of love is that we first need to learn to love ourselves before we can love anybody else.

Trust is a prerequisite for love. Without trust, love is without depth. It is like a plastic flower, instead of an alive, fresh and fragrant rose. Even if some people will let us down and make us sad and disappointed, it is no reason to let it undermine our basic trust in life. It is better to allow some people to let us down than not allow our basic trust in life to develop. Many people are so sleeping and unconscious that they really do not know what they are doing. They make us disappointed even if they do not really mean to. Even if we feel hurt, disillusioned and disappointed with people, see if you can give them love and understanding. A criterion for spiritual growth is that we begin to give love, rather than needing love.

Exactly as the rhythm of in-breathes and out-breathes of the physical body, the heart has also two poles: to give love and to receive love. Certain people are easier to give love to and other people are easier to be open to receive love. But to allow our love to become whole, we need to learn both to give love and to receive love.

Animals are great teachers in friendship and unconditional love. One of my course participants commented in a course, “I prefer animals before people, because animals cannot hurt me in the same way that people can. I myself still find it difficult to really trust that I am loved as I am. Even if I am aware about this, there is still a small part of myself that wants to contract, and which does not really trust that I am loved as I am and that life takes care of me. I find it easier to be present for others than to allow others to be present for me.”

Love and fear are two sides of the same coin. In the absence of love fear arises. In the light of love fear disappears, like when you turn the light on in a dark room. Fear is a contraction of our life energy together with an attitude of loneliness and isolation. Love creates an expansion of our life energy together with a feeling of love, joy and belongingness.

Love is the strongest power there is. There is no stronger force than love. Love is pure magic. Love transforms people without really doing anything. The sheer presence of love transforms people. There is nothing more holy than love, since love makes people whole.

Love accepts a person as he is. Love creates the freedom, which allows a person to be himself. Love creates the relaxation, which allows a person to relax into his inner being, into his authentic self. Love allows us to appreciate the beautiful being that we already are. Love allows a person to discover his true individuality.

Love is not an exclusive relationship with another person; love is a quality of our inner being. It is to discover the source of love deep within ourselves, which is our true nature.

In the depth of our heart, we already know that we are perfect as we are. In the depth of our inner being, we already know that life is perfect as it is.

It is on the awareness level of the heart that we begin to understand that we are not separate from life. We begin to understand that we are not small separate islands in a large ocean, but that life is one and that we are all small parts of the same whole. It is on the awareness level of the heart that we begin to understand what is important and meaningful in life. We begin to understand that life is about sharing, rather than hoarding, that life is about giving, rather than taking.

It is when we open our heart that we discover a sense of unity in love with other people, with the trees, with nature, with the sea and with the blue sky.

This is the silent revolution of the heart.

The human heart is the solution to the problems of the world.

The human heart contains all the answers.

The human heart has the capacity to expand and embrace the whole earth.
