by Thomas Merton
Working from existing translations, Thomas Merton composed a series of his own versions of the classic sayings of third-century-BC Chinese spiritual philosopher Chuang Tzu. It was because of Chuang Tzu and other early Taoist sages that Indian Buddhism was transformed in China into the unique vehicle we now call by its Japanese name-Zen. The Chinese sage comes to life in wit, paradox and shattering insights into the ground of being. Merton brings a vivid, modern idiom to the timeless wisdom of Tao.
