In a way, we are like the blind man who was asked to touch separate parts of an elephant -- and then attempt the nearly impossible task of describing the totality of the creature he was touching. In this classic work Alan Watts shows us that we are all somewhat blind to the greater reality of the world around us. Our limited perception only allows us to sense isolated pieces of life and keeps us from fully understanding how those pieces go together, and from understanding our relationship to the universe and to our fellow human beings. Most importantly, this perception keeps us from fully understanding ourselves.

The Book sparkles with warmth and wisdom, brilliantly blending and synthesizing Eastern and Western thought. This is the very essence of Alan Watts' philosophy, derived from his years of study and spiritual exploration. The Book is a guide to life, a way to remove impediments to our spiritual vision so that we can experience greater harmony and fulfillment.
