Description - Thomas Merton and Thich Nhat Hanh by Robert H. King
The author began the practice of Zen meditation a decade ago under the tutelage of a Jesuit priest. This book is the fruit of his spiritual journey. Thomas Merton and Thich Nhat Hanh were and are two of the foremost spiritual writers of their times. They met only once. "Individually," says Robert King, "they are important, but considered together they may be even more significant. For although their lives developed independently of one another and took quite different forms, they shed light on each other in wonderful and unexpected ways. What binds the two is the theme of contemplation and action - a form of religious practice that could serve as a unifying paradigm for the world's religions in an age of globalization".
