Thomas Merton and the Pratyekabuddha pt. 1 of 3 – 2009 re-edit

by Jeremy Holiday through Professor Rev. Dr. James Kenneth Powell II, opensourcebuddhism.org This excellent work by my grad student Jeremy Holiday demonstrates his many talents: intellectual, aural, visual and an empathetic ability to understand other cultures.

He investigates the relationship between Trappist monk Thomas Merton and his Asian adventures, specifically the relevance of his meeting with Chatrul Rinpoche of the Nyingma Tradition. This work also reveals the Buddhist attitude towards those of other faiths who have attained some higher realization.
