Welcome to my site. My name is Scott Teitsworth, and
I'm a spouse of and co-seeker with Deborah Buchanan. We're lifelong disciples of Guru Nitya, and this site will let you know
how to access his works. Nitya also means eternal. Here you'll find teachings related to matters of universal interest, not
limited in time and space, most or all written by me.
I should tell
you that this site is doomed, and the format Tripod has offered as an alternative is vastly inferior. When this one collapses,
I might just quit the business, so if you are interested in the material you might send me contact information to use if this
happens. My address is at the bottom of each page. I guess this is being fazed out because you can put an infinite amount
of material on it. I notice new sites charge per page after a certain point. As a non-profit enterprise, I'm not likely to
play that game. My apologies.
At the bottom of the page you'll find a list of articles from
the past year.
The big news for now is my second book, The Path to the Guru,
the Science of Self-Realization According to the Bhagavad Gita, came out in June of 2014. It covers the Gita's Chapters I
and II. The first book was a commentary on the Gita's Chapter XI. Click on the images at right for more information.
I feel my work on the Gita is my primary contribution to the world. All gratitude goes to Nitya and Nataraja
Guru, under the aegis of Narayana Guru, for their inspiration and guidance. If you want to read more about the Gita, all the
chapters are available here on the website.
Gurukula offers weekly classes based on the wisdom of the three gurus, and for the last ten years I have been writing extensive
class notes summarizing these sessions. These are available via email free for the asking, and the old ones are all posted
here. I have just about finished my extensive Bhagavad Gita commentary that began with another series of classes, and for
most of the books I have edited for the above-named rishis I have also written introductions. All these are on the site. Enjoy!
If you're a newcomer, I recommend
you read my introduction to That Alone: The Core Of Wisdom first, as it provides a background sketch of where I'm coming from.
The book introductions make good reading on their own account, and serve as doorways to some of Nitya's and Nataraja Guru's
The most valuable part of the site is the Bhagavad Gita commentary, very different from anything else available but
true as I can make it to the visionary spirit of the original, gleaned from many years as Nitya's student.
Background articles about me are Gee, You Are You,
and Flip Flop, found under Magazine Articles. I'm sorry, but the site won't permit me to put links here for them.
In the words of Narayana Guru, the purpose of this
website is to exchange knowledge, "to know and let know, not to argue and win." Truth is valid regardless of where it is found.
It is not limited to any particular group or belief system. Conflict is never over truth itself, only over opinions about
truth. Happiness is the aim of every being, so we all share a common purpose.
That being the case, feel free to pass along anything you
find here. I would appreciate you mentioning the site and my name when you do so. Disagree all you want, but please don't
alter what I've written. Most of all, have fun out there!

This site is permanently under construction, so bear with
me. You only found it because you're searching for wisdom, not because you care
about minor details. I'm the same way.
Okay, well there are more than
a few glitches, and I will be switching to a better site when I figure out how to do it. In the meantime, if you want to read
something, let me know and I can send you a doc., or you can copy the text off the site and adjust the size yourself. Please
attribute anything you share. The site looks okay on Safari, but not on other browsers. My apologies.
