THOUGHTS ON THE EAST
Description : 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.
