Bhakti & Devotion in Buddhism & Towards Building a New Normal : Reflections from Running Toward Mystery Online Dialogs with Tenzin Priyadarshi

May 26, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Menla Retreat and Dewa Spa

Join us for a three part conversation “Further Reflections Arising from Running Toward Mystery” with Robert A.F. Thurman and Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi presented by Tibet House US | Menla Online beginning May 19th, 26th & June 2nd, 2020 via Zoom.

In these three conversations Professor Thurman and the Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi will 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. At its heart is a story of striving for enlightenment, of the vital importance of mentors in that search, and of the many remarkable teachers he met along the way, among them the Nichiron Lotus Sutra Monks who built the great Stupas in India and throughout the world, the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Father Thomas Keating and, Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
