Born in India to a prominent Hindu Brahmin family, the Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi was only six years old when he began having visions of a mysterious mountain peak, and of men with shaved heads wearing robes the color of sunset. And so at the age of ten, he ran away from boarding school to find this place-taking a train to the end of the line and then riding a bus to wherever it went.

Strangely enough, he ended up at the Buddhist monastery that was the place in his dreams. His frantic parents and relatives set out to find him and, after two weeks, located him and brought him home. But he continued to have visions and felt a strong pull to a spiritual life.

This book 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.
Running Toward Mystery is the beautiful story of a singular life compelled to contemplation, and a riveting narrative of just how exciting that journey can be.

"Told with honesty and elegance, Tenzin Priyadarshi's story is utterly amazing"Running Toward Mystery is not merely a book, but an experience, a biography, a formula for living, and a manifesto for a new kind of exploration of life. Tenzin writes with the extraordinary conviction and grace that can come only from fulfillment. This book produces a kind of joy-and a nudge toward curiosity-that only few books can provide. It is, at the same time, a pathway and a journey. I could not put it down"Enthralling from beginning to end, Running Toward Mystery encourages us all to connect with our deeper and higher selves. Tenzin's journey, which seamlessly traverses multiple worlds, is awe-inspiring""Tenzin's amazing life story is not simply a stunningly compelling journey of meaning, discovery, and spiritual reawakening. It is a story of life. Everyone should read this book""A necessary and captivating narrative of spiritual courage and truth-seeking far beyond the veil of our contemporary delusions""Tenzin's courageous spirit and honest nature can be a model for anyone seeking peace and purpose in their lives""This is a remarkable story and quest, filled with insights on leading a life of compassion, discipline, and integrity""Tenzin shows that the world does not fall apart in the face of paradox and mystery. His fearless embrace of that ambiguity invites us into full conscious living, awake and loving for the benefit of all"Sometimes anecdotal, sometimes reflective, it is also a meditation on the mystery and purpose of life.In Running Toward Mystery, Priyadarshi shares his thoughts on science and technology, meditation and spiritual disillusionment, and the relationship between Buddhism and the modern world.This exemplary work encompasses his views on spiritual disillusionment, science and technology, meditation and the link between Buddhism and the modern world.
