Thomas Merton - The Way of Chuang Tzu (New Directions, 1965). 159 pages. New scan. Searchable pdf (clearscan) with contents in bookmarks, accurate pagination and metadata, etc. Cistercian monk Thomas Merton's collection of versions of Taoist texts from Chuang Tzu together with Merton's own 20-page "study of Chuang Tzu." back cover: Working from existing translations, Thomas Merton composed a series of his own versions of the classic sayings of Chuang Tzu, the most spiritual of Chinese philosophers. Chuang Tzu, who wrote in the fourth and third centuries B.C., is the chief authentic historical spokesperson for Taoism and its founder Lao Tzu (a legendary character known largely through Chuang TzuΓÇÖs writings). Indeed it was because of Chuang Tzu and the other Taoist sages that Indian Buddhism was transformed, in China, into the unique vehicle we now call by its Japanese nameΓÇöZen. The Chinese sage abounds in wit and paradox and shattering insights into the true ground of being. Thomas Merton, no stranger to Asian thought, brings a vivid, modern idiom to the timeless wisdom of Tao.
