Swami Dhyan Giten's New Free Ebook: The Language Of Silence
"I was 9 years old when I had my first spiritual awakening, my first glimpse of wholeness with Existence", says spiritual teacher and best-selling author Swami Dhyan Giten in his new book "The Language of Silence - From Darkness to Light".
Online, March 20, 2013 (Newswire.com) - 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.
"I have always had the capacity to go within myself and to discover the silence within, the inner meditative quality, the inner source of love and truth, the inner language of silence", Giten explains in this book. "Now I also notice that this silence is going deeper, and that I go beyond the ego and disappear into the silence."
This book consists of a collection of quotes from Swami Dhyan Giten on silence. It also explains how silence is the flower and love and wholeness are the fragrance.
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 has touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.
The book is illustrated with Swami Dhyan Giten's internationally recognized meditative art.
"Swami Dhyan Giten's The Language of Silence - From Darkness to Light reminds me of those moments when we drift back from sleep to wakefulness and the precious insights that quite often occur in those instants of "awakening."
It is my own experience that all spiritual paths have a common thread which most simply stated is: unconditional self-acceptance. It is this process or journey toward self acceptance that leads to our connection with our individual aloneness and silence about which Giten so beautifully often comments. Here Giten tells us we find our true heart, that love that becomes our healer and a healing presence that projects beyond ourselves and heals and nourishes the lives of all others with who we have contact, be they friends, strangers or even our pets.
Giten's The Language of Silence is a beautifully expressed and highly intimate picture of his own spiritual history. While reading this book which is formatted in short segments and insightful phrases and a true delight to read and sure to later re-visit,I had the sense of listening to his open heart as it gave words to his personal silence.
Giten offers us a quite intimate connection with his inner being and thus a glimpse of the beauty within ourselves."

"A book for meditation. I like the format of the book very much. The language of the book is easy to read, but the book is not easy, it is deep.
I wonder if "ordinary" people will understand, but each person will get what they need, and maybe it creates a thirst.
The book is very inspiring, both privately, and as a reading tips for clients."
- Marie Soederberg, psychotherapist, Stockholm
"Swami Dhyan Giten made a remarkable observation that is very revealing in the quest for a higher consciousness or for anyone aspiring to live a more spiritual life.
He said it is astonishing to realize what growing up actually means, it is to be one with life. Life means to find Existence within oneself; it means to discover that Existence is alive in your heart and being.
The song of a bird echoes one´s own inner voice, the beauty of an animal becomes an expression of unconditional love and friendship, the majestic mountains create an ecstatic joy, and one discovers all the shining stars of the sky within the heart.
It is to realize that the Existence is alive and that the underlying thread of consciousness is God."

An excerpt from The Language of Silence
Life is like playing "hide the key" with God. God has hidden the key and now it is up to us to find the key again.
It also takes us a while to realize that the key is hidden in our own heart. Our heart is the door to allow life to guide us. Our heart is the door to say "yes" to life. Our heart is the door to surrender to life.
Love is the strongest force there is. There is no stronger healing power than love. Love is pure magic.
Love transforms people without really doing anything. The mere presence of love transforms people. There is nothing more holy than love since love makes people whole.
Intuition - The Language of Silence
Intuition is the language of silence, the Existential language. The word "in-tuition" means to listen within yourself. Intuition is the silent voice within, which is already in contact with the Existence. Intuition is the voice of God.
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.
Life is One
It is on the consciousness level of the heart that we begin to understand that we are not separated from life. We begin to understand that we are not small separate islands in a great ocean, but that life is one and that we all are small parts of the Whole.
I have always had the capacity to go within myself and to discover the silence within, the inner meditative quality, the inner source of love and truth - the inner language of silence.Now I also notice that this silence is going deeper and that I go beyond the ego and disappear into the silence.
First this brought up fear, but now I am enjoying this meditation of disappearing into the silence and to be nobody. I have started experimenting with this phenomenon to understand how to consciously go beyond the ego: yesterday when I took a coffee at a restaurant, I consciously turned my attention within and disappeared into the silence, which was like finding an inner source of bliss.
In aloneness, I experiment with being consciously alone as a door to be egoless. In conscious aloneness, the ego cannot function. In aloneness, you are not.
When I am walking, I consciously experiment with being with Existence without having the mind constantly commenting. I try to just be wordlessly with the people and situations that I meet on my walk.
When I can just be with Existence, it opens the door to be one with the Whole.
The Celestial Music
During the summer I meditated outside in nature.
Listening to the wind with the ears are like listening to mere noise, but listening to the wind blowing through the trees from the inner silence and being one with the wind is like listening to the celestial music.
