Thomas Merton was a prolific author. A peace activist. Helped in the formation of Amnesty Internaitonal. Poet, photographer.

And he did a lot of work making connections between Western and Eastern religious groups. To this day, the Trappists maintain a relationship with the Tibetan Buddhist community
