Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
