In 'The Emptiness of Patterned Flux' (in The Emergence of Buddhist American Literature, SUNY Press, ed. John Whalen-Bridge and Gary Storhoff) Jonathan Stalling argues, pretty convincingly for me, for a submerged Buddhist influence in Pound via Ernest Fenollosa, whose New Buddhist beliefs, it turns out, were thoroughly Hegelian.  Perhaps this might be a route in for you?  There are at least passing references to Hegel in this article.
