Gita’s Autobiographical Sketch
I was born in Amman, Jordan into an Armenian family, the second of five children. Our family life was filled with the ideas, belief systems, and peoples of different religions, cultures, and languages. This included Christians of all denominations, Muslims and Sufis, further enriched by the teachings of Buddhism and Hinduism, as well as the Ageless Wisdom Teachings of Blavatsky, Bailey, and Agni Yoga. We were also told fables and hero stories from various cultures.
We were always motivated to read and study and do our homework by the example of my parents; they always gave us examples of self discipline, integrity, and through their deep knowledge, a love of scholarly pursuits.
We emigrated from Jordon to the United States in 1959 and I grew up in Los Angeles. In 1987 I started TSG Publishing Foundation, and in 1994, I moved to Arizona where our TSG Center is at present.
What are Gita's Qualifications?
Gita’s educational background includes a Master of Arts degree in Law and Diplomacy; a Master of Arts degree in History; and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Cultural Anthropology and Linguistics.

Gita has been imbued with the principles of the Ageless Wisdom teachings from a young age. Her father, Torkom Saraydarian, was a renowned scholar and teacher of comparative religions and philosophy. Her mother is a deeply spiritual person whose life has demonstrated selfless sacrifice to her family and community as she raised and educated her five children.
How Can Gita's Work Help Me?
My passion is to make the Teaching available to any interested person and to help create a culture of understanding, appreciation, and spiritual nobility. This is the path of salvation for humanity. Human beings have made important expansions in the last 50-100 years. We can only judge the human condition and see the unfolding of humanity if we take a long-term view through the prism of the Teaching. The Teaching gives us the tools for comprehensive understanding, and helps us develop the inner patience and strength necessary to journey throughout life despite the many challenges that come our way.
Every person in the world can benefit from some part of the Teaching. Learning about the Wisdom and applying even a small portion of it to our life brings us many benefits. The Wisdom Teaching is the crucial path to living in health, harmony, and appreciation of the complexities of life, both individually and collectively. People are living and working in very complex social settings and in areas of the world that are vastly different from their homelands. We face huge challenges never seen before in the history of humanity. We are truly one world now and we see the immense need to have a foundation in life that helps us understand ourselves in a new way and understand each other. The understanding of the Teaching and the practice of its principles is the path to greater harmony in all parts of life.
Life offers tremendous possibilities and each of us has tremendous opportunities to excel regardless of where life and karma has placed us. We can overcome anything if we see it in its true light. What we reap depends entirely on what we sow.
