9780060654870: The Other Side of the Mountain: The End of the Journey, The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume Seven: 1967-1968: 1967-68 - The Other Side of the Mountain: The End of the Journey v. 7

This seventh and final volume of his celebrated journals completes the story of a remarkable man and his lifelong search for spiritual fulfilment.

With the election of a new Abbot at the Abbey of Gethsemani, Merton enters a period of unprecedented freedom, culminating in the opportunity to travel to California, Alaska, and finally the Far East – journeys that offer him new possibilities and causes for contemplation. In his last days at the Abbey of Gethsemani, Merton continues to follow the tumultuous events of the sixties, including the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy. In Southeast Asia, he meets the Dalai Lama and other Buddhist and Catholic monks and discovers a rare and rewarding kinship with each. The final year is full of excitement and great potential for Merton, making his accidental death in Bangkok, at the age of fifth-three, all the more tragic.

About the Author:

Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was a Trappist monk, writer, and peace activist. His spiritual classics include the bestselling The Seven Storey Mountain, which has sold millions of copies, New Seeds of Contemplation, and The Sign of Jonas.

Brother Patrick Hart, O.C.S.O., general editor of the journals, was Merton’s last secretary and edited several of Merton’s other writings.
