Further Reflections Arising from Running Toward Mystery: Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi & Bob Thurman
“Venerable Tenzin’s story is utterly amazing, told with honesty and elegance. It is very inspiring for anyone seeking the truth of life, or even trying to find themselves. Once I started the journey with him, running away from home as a 10-year old to follow his vision, I couldn’t put it down. I wholeheartedly recommend this touching memoir to everyone.”
-Robert A. F. Thurman Jey Tsong Khapa Professor Emeritus, Columbia University
In these conversations Co-hosted by Prajnopaya at MIT & Tibet House US Menla Online Professor Thurman and the Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi expand on issues raised in the book “Running Toward Mystery: The Adventure of an Unconventional Life“, during the recent online book launch dialog, and illustrated by the teachers both encountered during their spiritual journeys, in the context of our pressing world crises.
“Running Toward Mystery” is the Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi’s profound account of his lifelong journey as a seeker.
“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.
