Coming Back to Ourselves: Finding Authentic Direction in the Chaos of Being
A Conversation with Scott Teitsworth
Those who aspire to excellence need to find ways to discover their suppressed talents and desires and bring them to life. In this conversation, Scott points out that many of our desires are learned desires—pastimes, amusements and substitutes for what we truly want. “Our real craving is for our authentic being. Once we connect back to ourselves, that’s the cure for everything.”
So where do we begin? How do we come back to our authentic selves and find our direction in the chaos of being? Is it even worth the effort?
Coming Back to Ourselves is Scott Teitworth’s refreshing and inspiring response to these vital questions.

Listen to an excerpt
Scott Teitsworth (AUTHOR & NARRATOR) is a lifelong student of Indian philosophy and modern science in the lineage of Narayana Guru, under the tutelage of Nitya Chaitanya Yati, a disciple of Nataraja Guru. An editor of books written by these gurus, he and his wife host the Portland, Oregon branch of the Narayana Gurukula, where they have taught classes on the Bhagavad Gita and Indian philosophy for over 30 years. His specialty is interpreting the ancient myths in terms of modern psychology and neuroscience.
Scott had a breakthrough LSD trip in at Stanford University in 1970 during the “Cambodia Spring” antiwar uprising, and within a few months had dropped out and found his lifelong teacher, Nitya Chaitanya Yati, who was presenting a class on the Bhagavad Gita in Portland, Oregon. A firefighting career supported his studies in Yoga and Vedanta, as well as his extensive editing work. Upon the death of his guru in 1999, Scott began teaching the Bhagavad Gita and soon after began compiling a detailed commentary on each of the 700 verses.
