Thoughts on the East

An ecumenical anthology, Thoughts on the East gathers Merton's essential definitions of the religions that so much interested him - Taoism, Buddhism (in many forms, but especially Zen), Sufism, and Hinduism. Unified by Merton's belief that East and West share "a unity of outlook and purpose, a common spiritual climate", this eclectic selection also offers a fascinating introduction by the late George Woodcock, author of the acclaimed critical study, Thomas Merton: Monk and Poet.

About the Author

Thomas Merton (1915-1968) entered the Cistercian Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky, following his conversion to Catholicism and was ordained Father M. Louis in 1949. During the 1960s, he was increasingly drawn into a dialogue between Eastern and Western religions and domestic issues of war and racism. In 1968, the Dalai Lama praised Merton for having a more profound knowledge of Buddhism than any other Christian he had known. Thomas Merton is the author of the beloved classic The Seven Storey Mountain.
