Description

Alan Watts has become known as the West's foremost interpreter of Eastern thought, and one of the most original philosophers of this century. Fortunately for us, he is also witty, articulate, insightful, very entertaining, and a pleasure to listen to.

In this audio collection, Alan Watts is all of those things and more, as he explains meditation in its historical context and shares his personal understanding of the richness it can bring to your life.

Alan Watts is also featured demonstrating the relationship of music and sound to meditation with gongs, instruments, and the recitation of a mantra. The demonstration is designed to give the listener the opportunity to experience a mantra meditation with Alan Watts and a group of friends who were brought together especially for this recording.

Alan Watts is probably the best interpreter of Eastern thought for Western minds. And when he lectures, he is especially engaging. In this short compilation of some of his teaching on meditation, Alan Watts isnít afraid to make a fool of himself in order to get his point across. He bangs on a gong, chants loudly, and repeats elongated ďaumsĒ maybe a few too many times, but his presentation is entertaining and enlightening nonetheless. He teaches how to remain in the eternal now and takes us through a few meditations. Since the recording is old, the sound effects of ocean waves and rain laid over the recording arenít so much soothing as they are static noise. But itís always great to hear Alan Watts.
