which touched on Sufism, my feeling increased that Merton's knowledge of Sufism had reached a point where a non-Muslim could go no further than he had gone. The key to understanding Merton's reflections on Sufism is a very simple, straightforward statement which he made in his first lecture to the novices at Gethsemani: "The Sufis are seeking to know God and have ways of seeking to know God ...

Merton's writings on the East show a boundless concern for nearly anything Asian. Many of his later writings and talks to his novices centered around Zen Buddhism, philosophical Taoism, and Sufism. I will examine an interest of Merton's which up to now few Mertonian scholars have dealt with, notably, Ju Chia, or Confucianism.
