In the late 1960’s, drawn to the wisdom of the East, Thomas Merton made a pilgrimage to meet the Dalia Lama. They forged a deep spiritual bond and made plans to bring the worlds of East and West together in compassion. Three weeks later, in Bangkok, Thomas Merton was accidentally electrocuted. The last thing he said was, “I shall disappear now”.
