The Way of Chuang Tzu (Second Edition)

The Way of Chuang Tzu (Second Edition)

Thomas Merton


Classic writings from the nice Zen grasp in beautiful models by means of Thomas Merton, in a brand new variation with a preface by way of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

operating from present translations, Thomas Merton composed a sequence of his personal models of the vintage sayings of Chuang Tzu, the main religious of chinese language philosophers. Chuang Tzu, who wrote within the fourth and 3rd centuries B.C., is the manager actual historic spokesperson for Taoism and its founder Lao Tzu (a mythical personality identified principally via Chuang Tzu’s writings). certainly it was once as a result of Chuang Tzu and the opposite Taoist sages that Indian Buddhism used to be reworked, in China, into the original motor vehicle we now name through its eastern name―Zen.

The chinese language sage abounds in wit and paradox and shattering insights into the real flooring of being. Thomas Merton, no stranger to Asian concept, brings a bright, smooth idiom to the undying knowledge of Tao.
