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.

 Our Portland 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 greatest works.

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!
