Menla Online Event: Running Toward Mystery

April 15 - April 15, 2020

Tenzin Priyadarshi

Robert A.F. Thurman

Join us for an online conversation with Professor Robert Thurman and the Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi on his new book Running Toward Mystery this April 15th at 1 PM EDT!Running Toward Mystery is the Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi’s profound account of his lifelong journey as a seeker. At its heart is a story of striving for enlightenment, the vital importance of mentors in that search, and of the many remarkable teachers he met along the way, among them the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Mother Teresa.“Teachers come and go on their own schedule,” Priyadarshi writes. “I clearly wasn’t in charge of the timetable, and it wasn’t my place to specify how a teacher should teach.” And arrive they did, at the right time, in the right way, to impart the lessons that shaped a life of seeking, devotion, and deep human connection across all barriers. Running Toward Mystery is the bracing and beautiful story of a singular life compelled to contemplation and a riveting narrative of just how exciting that journey can be.
