Mystics & Zen masters by Thomas Merton, , Farrar, Strauss and Giroux edition, in EnglishCited by: The book comprises three essays more or less on Buddhism, followed by ten which have little to do either with mystics or Zen masters (e.g., a short history of the Jesuits in China which is, even though we are not told that, a review of Dunne's Generation of Giants; and a series of observations on the patristic view of virginity vis-a-vis. He was also unique among religious leaders in his embrace of Eastern mysticism, positing it as complementary to the Western sacred tradition. Merton is the author of over forty books of poetry, essays, and religious writing, including Mystics and Zen Masters, and The Seven Story Mountain, for which he is best known.   Mystics and Zen masters by Merton, Thomas, Publication date Borrow this book to access EPUB and PDF files.
