Song of the Divine
– The Spiritual Science of Consciousness
Satsang Weekend with Giten
8 – 10 September, 2017
“Giten has it. Giten do a beautiful work with satsang. Enlightened or not, I do not care. Giten has a quality, a certain capacity to act as a transmitter for spiritual energy, which can light your own energy. Before I did not think that it was possible to get enlightened, but now I think that it is possible.”
– Satyama Padma, Stockholm
“Satsang weekend with Giten was like coming home. I went into samadhi three times during the satsang weekend – and I also got a map and an understanding for how to go into samadhi again.”
– Satyama Padma, participant in Satsang weekend with Giten, December 9-11, 2016, in Stockholm
During this satsang weekend, Giten will give a broad compendium of insight and wisdom that reaches into all aspects of life and all domains of human culture. Vedic science – the spiritual science of consciousness is the ancient and universal root of many of the worlds’s religions and mystical traditions. Vedic science and knowledge presents a complete system of spiritual science, including all the practices of Yoga and meditation as part of a rich field of spiritual culture. As such it represents the song of the divine and the cosmic intelligence.
This satsang weekend will cover topics as meditation, disovering your true Self, the inner being, the inner source of love and truth, the different systems of Yoga and meditation, the universal meaning of Vedic science and wisdom, the Vedic view of society, learning to live according to your Dharma, to learn to live in accord with your true Self, the science of karma and rebirth, Ayurveda and Vedic astrology.
This satsang weekend with Giten may be the most accesible and relevant overview of the ancient spiritual wisdom and tradition of India and its clearest presentation to the modern mind.
This satsang weekend will be especially of interest to the large group of people involved with spirituality, meditation, health and yoga, as Giten will also talk about what underlies the Kundalini Yoga approach to the human energy system. During these satsang evenings Giten will deliver the ancient eternal wisdom in the context of personal growth and transformation.
Satsang with Giten is a meeting in love, truth and silence. Satsang with Giten is a direct insight and realization of being.
This satsang weekend 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.

During this satsang weekend we will study the following topics:
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.
THE CHAKRA SYSTEM AND CHAKRA INVESTIGATION
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.
The ancient Vedic science of consciousness is the oldest and most extensive approach to life. The Vedic science is based upon the experience of thousands of years of enlightened masters of India. As such, the Vedic approach is both unique and universal, and presents us with extraordinary and powerful tools to enable us to shape our lives according to the highest Self-awareness. Those that are willing to study and apply the Vedic system with dedication and commmitment, are bound to discover the greater reality and energy of the whole of life accessible to them in their every breath and behind every thought. This greater potential that we have does not merely consist of a new science and technology but of being able to create “a new human being” rooted in a higher consciousness that is one with all.
The Vedic approach to life is as an organic unfoldment of a unitary consciousness is returning through related Vedic disciplines of yoga, Ayurveda, Vedic astrology and Tantra.
Millions have come in contact with one or more of these Vedic teachings, though few may know the complete Vedic system behind them. Yet that background hold greater depth and power than any of its important branches.
The Vedic approach rests upon a special view of the human being, life, nature and consciousness that can be very different from what we find in modern psychology, philosophy, medicine and science. It reflect a profound spiritual philosophy, psychology and cosmology interwoven together at the core of our being. This knowledge is not simply theoretical in nature but reflects a profound ascertainment of how the universe operates both externally and in our own psyche.
The Vedic approach helps us to establish what we could call a Vedic Life, which is a life in harmony with the universal Dharma. The Vedic approach is based upon the Vedic laws of right living, which are also the laws of the Dharma – how to live in harmony with the greater conscious universe and with respect for the sacred nature of all life. A Vedic life links us to the universal life and asks us to honor all living beings.
Vedic science is a qualitative science, that reveals and unfolds the sacred and immeasurable – the essence of life. Vedic science encompass all the ordinary sciences including physics, astronomy, biology, medicine and psychology. Vedic science do not exclude the knowledge and discoveries made by modern science, but seek to integrate these into a higher science of consciousness. The Vedic view is that whatever knowledge we have externally of name, form or number is incomplete if we do not know our own inner essence, being and consciousness that are beyond all quantification. Vedic science teaches us how to access and live in our higher Self and being. As such, Vedic knowledge leads us to a quantum leap in awareness, a revolution in higher consciousness and a greater integration with the universe. Vedic knowledge adresses the total human being as a reflection of the greater universe of matter, life, mind and consciousness.

Giten will talk about Vedanta, which is the world’s oldest meditation path. Vedanta is the philosophy of self-realization and samadhi. Vedanta is a philosophy of Self-realization and samadhi, and its practice is Self-realization through yoga, awareness and meditation. Vedanta revolves around one premise: re-establish the silence at the core of our being. In Vedanta, silence is understood as our own human consciousness – which resides in our hearts and pervades everything in the universe. Vedanta sees pure unity or oneness as the supreme principle in existence. Vedanta meditation aims at returning to this original state of unity and oneness with life, in which all beings abide in the Self within the heart. It takes us direct to the divine presence in the heart.
Vedanta says that the individual soul is one with God. Vedanta says that our true Self, Atman, the inner being, the soul, is our divine nature. The same consciousness that resides at the core of our being pervades the entire universe. It pervade in the flowers, the animals, the stones, the mountains and the stars. To know ourselves is to know God and to become one with God.
Vedanta is generally private, emphasizing individual practice more than group practice. However meditation sessions do occur as part of the satsangs or gatherings that are common in the tradition.
Giten unveils the secrets of Vedanta meditation from which all other meditation systems have emerged. Vedanta is the famous “direct path to enlightenment” of Vedic science, the world’s oldest science of consciousness. Vedic science offers the wisdom of the ancient enlightened masters of India. Vedanta, the path of self-realization, is the spiritual support and goal of the related Vedic disciplines like Ayurveda, yoga and Vedic astrology. Vedanta is the essence and the end of the ancient wisdom of Vedic science of consciousness. Giten will reveal the deepest secrets of the ancient wisdom of Vedanta, which reveals the steps to meditation, spirituality and Samadhi. Giten will also talk about the Vedantic perspective on the important prime issues of the spiritual path, the challenges of awareness, the practice of meditation and the Vedantic view of consciousness and cosmic evolution.
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”.
Giten’s student and beloved friend, Satyama Padma, went to see a medium for a consultation. Somehow, they began to talk about Giten and the medium, who had never met Giten, said: “Giten is an old soul.”
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.
