Title

Agehananda Bharati. The Tantric Tradition (London, Rider 1965 [i.e. 1966]). Thomas Merton's Marginalia Collection.

Description

Book inscribed with the name Linda Parsons. She likely sent or gave in person Thomas Merton the copy. Parsons visited Merton at Gethsemani June 29-30, 1966. Linda Parsons, born Miroslav Prozak (also spelled Miroslava Projak), was a Catholic convert in her thirties who underwent powerful ecstasies of religious experience. Parsons and Martha Crampton of McGill University in Montreal, Canada, organized the R. M. Bucke Memorial Society for the study of religious experience. She began a correspondence with Merton, and, after his death, founded a Thomas Merton Retreat Center at Lake Magog, near the Benedictine monastery of St. Benoît du Lac. Later, she married Peter Sabbath who became the retreat center's director, which later moved to Montreal. (Source: The Hidden Ground of Love, p. 516.)
