“WHAT A JOURNEY!”:
SATSANG WITH GITEN, SPRING 2018, IN STOCKHOLM
 
“What a journey!”
– Deva Emanuel, participant in satsang weekend with Giten, 1-3 December, 2017
 

“Satsang with Giten is like a scent, a flowering of This is it.”

Satyama Padma, Stockholm

 

“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.

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.”

– Satyama Padma, Stockholm, from the foreword to Giten’s latest book on the teachings of Buddha

 
Next satsang weekend with Giten on the Upanishads, the fundamental wisdom for a meditator, will happen 2-4 March, 2018, in Stockholm.

10 STEPS TO ENLIGHTENMENT:

BOOK RELEASE PARTY FOR GITEN’S NEW BOOK

 “SILENCE IS THE WAY: THE TEACHINGS OF BUDDHA”

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:

SPIRITUAL TEACHER AND AUTHOR SWAMI DHYAN GITEN’S LECTURE ON INTUITION – THE INNER SOURCE OF LOVE, TRUTH AND WISDOM – FOR FREE DOWNLOAD ON YOUTUBE

   “Intuition means to follow the whispers of the inner in a basic ‘yes’ to life.”

-Swami Dhyan Giten

Giten’s lectures works on two levels, on two dimensions: the words and the silence beyond the words.

Prem Mukta, a participant in Satsang with Giten in Stockholm, wrote a mail to Giten a couple of days ago, saying that she felt a need to record Giten’s lectures during Satsang to be able to listen to them again.

She writes: “Giten manages to deliver so much wisdom and interesting information in a short while during Satsang that I want to save everything, and put in a little shrine for further contemplation.”

“I listened several times to Giten’s English lecture on Intuition – The Inner Source of Love, Truth and Wisdom. The lecture felt total, direct and provoked my mind. First after a while, I could let go and begin to listen to the words.”

 – Deva Emanuel, musician, composer and student of Giten since 6 years

“Giten’s voice in the head phones becomes the finest company during walks.”

 – Prem Mukta, Stockholm

Satsang with Giten: The Call of the Wild – Sermons from a madman

Giten, galen mästare,Satsang Weeken

THE CALL OF THE WILD:

SERMONS FROM A MADMAN

“The silent Satsang yesterday felt strong. Almost immediately when we sat down in silent Satsang, I was filled with an energy so strong that it felt like I was surrounded by an almost physical energy field.

I almost felt like I was going to levitate, like the energy was so compact that I could not sit still on the floor. It was like the Satsang danced, it was living its own life. It felt ancient, powerful and beyond control. And in the middle of everything, a loud and wild laughter grow, which I had to fight to keep back. It felt like I would never stop laughing if I began.

When Giten sounded the bell that the Satsang was over, I had to concentrate to come back in one piece, remind the body of the frame, and remind the head of the room, of the here and now.

After a while, it worked, and the effect was that I felt happy, calm and full of love after Satsang.

– Prem Mukta, Stockholm

Giten lectures about a variety of topics of concern for the modern man during Satsang weekend, December 11-13, 2015, in Stockholm for example love, joy, relationships, acceptance, understanding, intuition, healing, trust, creativity, friendship, spiritual growth, evolution, society, life, meditation, silence, spirituality, mysticism, truth, wisdom, death, unity with life, God and enlightenment. He also talks about a number of spiritual teachers and traditions such as Vedanta, Yoga, Tantra, the chakra system, Tao, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Patanjali and Jesus Christ. 

The Art of Living: The Three Stages of Enlightenment

The Art of Living: 

The Three Stages of Enlightenment

 From Satsang with Giten, June 25, 2015 

“These are the three stages of enlightenment, the three glimpses of satori.

1. The first stage enlightenment:
A Glimpse of the Whole

The first stage of enlightenment is short glimpse from faraway of the whole. It is a short glimpse of being.


The first stage of enlightenment is when, for the first time, for a single moment the mind is not functioning. The ordinary ego is still present at the first stage of enlightenment, but you experience for a short while that there is something beyond the ego.


There is a gap, a silence and emptiness, where there is not thought between you and existence.


You and existence meet and merge for a moment.


And for the first time the seed, the thirst and longing, for enlightenment, the meeting between you and existence, will grow in your heart. 

2. The second stage of enlightenment:
Silence, Relaxation, Togetherness, Inner Being

The second stage of enlightenment is a new order, a harmony, from within, which comes from the inner being. It is the quality of freedom.
The inner chaos has disappeared and a new silence, relaxation and togetherness has arisen.


Your own wisdom from within has arisen.
A subtle ego is still present in the second stage of enlightenment.


The Hindus has three names for the ego:
1. Ahamkar, which is the ordinary ego.
2. Asmita, which is the quality of Am-ness, of no ego. It is a very silent ego, not aggreessive, but it is still a subtle ego.
3. Atma, the third word is Atma, when the Am-ness is also lost. This is what Buddha callas no-self, pure being.


In the second stage of enlightenment you become capable of being in the inner being, in the gap, in the meditative quality within, in the silence and emptiness.


For hours, for days, you can remain in the gap, in utter aloneness, in God.
Still you need effort to remain in the gap, and if you drop the effort, the gap will disappear.


Love, meditation and prayer becomes the way to increase the effort in the search for God.


Then the second stage becomes a more conscious effort. Now you know the way, you now the direction. 

3. The third stage of enlightenment:
Ocean, Wholeness, No-self, Pure being

At the third stage of enlightenment, at the third step of Satori, our individual river flowing silently, suddenly reaches to the Ocean and becomes one with the Ocean.


At the third Satori, the ego is lost, and there is Atma, pure being. You are, but without any boundaries. The river has become the Ocean, the Whole.
It has become a vast emptiness, just like the pure sky.


The third stage of enlightenment happens when you have become capable of finding the inner being, the meditative quality within, the gap, the inner silence and emptiness, so that it becomes a natural quality.
You can find the gap whenever you want.


This is what tantra callas Mahamudra, the great orgasm, what Buddha calls Nirvana, what Lao Tzu calls Tao and what Jesus calls the kingdom of God.


You have found the door to God.


You have come home.”

The Art of Living: The Art of Being Happy from Satsang with Giten, June 18, 2015, in Stockholm

Inituation, Toshen

The Art of Living:

 

The Art of Being Happy

 

From Satsang with Giten,

June 18, 2015, in Stockholm 

 

The Art of Being Happy is the art of saying say to life. The whole message of Jesus is a total “yes” to life. 

Whatsoever you do, do it happily. 

Whatsoever you do, wherever you are, do not do anything unhappily. 

Whatsoever happens, see out how you can find happiness in it. 

If you know how to be happy, then even small things become great things. 

Make being happy the art of living. 

When you learn the art of being happy, it also begins to spread around you like the waves of the ocean. 

To be happy do not mean to satisfy desires, it means to find the happiness of our being, the happiness of emptiness. 

– Swami Dhyan Giten
