Product Details


“Told with honesty and elegance, Tenzin Priyadarshi’s story is utterly amazing.”—Robert A. F. Thurman, Jey Tsong Khapa Professor Emeritus of Indo-Tibetan Bhuddist Studies, Columbia University
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 Priyadarshi writes with the extraordinary conviction and grace that can only come from fulfillment. This book produces a kind of joy—and a nudge towards curiosity—that only few books can provide. It is, at the same time, a pathway and a journey. I could not put it down.”—Siddhartha Mukherjee, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies
“Enthralling from beginning to end, Running Toward Mystery encourages us all to connect with our deeper and higher self. Tenzin’s journey, which seamlessly traverses multiple worlds, is awe-inspiring.”—Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO, Thrive Global
“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.”—Reid Hoffman, co-founder, LinkedIn
“Tenzin’s courageous spirit and honest nature can be a model for anyone seeking peace and purpose in their lives.”—Mellody Hobson, co-CEO, Ariel Investments
“This is a remarkable story and quest, filled with insights on leading a life of compassion, discipline, and integrity.”—Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals
“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.”—James Orbinski, former president, Médecins Sans Frontières
