About the Author

Thomas Merton (1915-1968) entered the Cistercian Abbey of
Gethsemani in Kentucky, following his conversion to Catholicism and was ordained Father M. Louis in 1949. During the 1960s, he was increasingly drawn into a dialogue between Eastern and Western religions and domestic issues of war and racism. In 1968, the Dalai Lama praised Merton for having a more profound knowledge of Buddhism than any other Christian he had known. Thomas Merton is the author of the beloved classic The
Seven Storey Mountain.

David D. Cooper is a professor in the Department of American Thought and Language at Michigan State University.
