Manly P. Hall: Zen and Christian Mysticism (previously unreleased audio lecture)

Philosopher and speaker Manly P. Hall makes several observations linking Zen and Christian Mysticism, particularly regarding Dr. D.T. Suzuki and 14th century theologian, Meister Eckhart.

*originally recorded on Manly Hall's 61st birthday in 1962, this is now made available on the 118th anniversary of his birth, March 18, 2019*

In the early 1960's Manly Hall began to speak more about Eastern religions, traditions and symbolism, and made several trips to Japan. Perhaps after the destruction of World War II and the Cold War insanity that followed, his turn toward the gentle, peaceful and harmonious traditions such as Zen and Taoism was a natural extension of his already vast amount of knowledge of ancient wisdom.

As always, Mr. Hall presents this subject on Zen and Christian Mysticism with insight and skill, as well as a personal call to action to improve our own lives and the lives of those around us.
