Author Info
Thomas Merton
Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk, a prolific poet and prose writer, and an influential peace activist. His spiritual biography, "The Seven-Storey Mountain," which tells of his conversion to Catholicism and finding his vocation, is a classic of the genre.
Whether talking about the Tao, bhakti yoga, or the Desert Fathers, the author weaves the wisdom of different traditions into the material he is assessing with natural ease, thus proving himself to be a daring pioneer of interspirituality
From the Publisher
Editors Note Now in paperback, revised and redesigned: This is Thomas Merton's last book, in which he draws on both Eastern and Western traditions to explore the hot topic of contemplation/meditation in depth and to show how we can practice true contemplation in everyday life. Never before published except as a series of articles (one per chapter) in an academic journal, this book on contemplation was revised by Merton shortly before his untimely death. The material bridges Merton's early work on Catholic monasticism, mysticism, and contemplation with his later writing on Eastern, especially Buddhist, traditions of meditation and spirituality. This book thus provides a comprehensive understanding of contemplation that draws on the best of Western and Eastern traditions. Merton was still tinkering with this book when he died; it was the book he struggled with most during his career as a writer. But now the Merton Legacy Trust and experts have determined that the book makes such a valuable contribution as his major comprehensive presentation of contemplation that they have allowed its publication.
