BACK COVER #Zen Buddhism --the earthy and dynamic Asian philosophy which views man as an integral part of the universe, having one purpose in life: to be completely and simply human-- is explained in principle and practice in this enlightening work.
With perception and brilliance, Alan W. Watts examines the background and history of Zen and shows how this ancient spiritual tradition makes it possible to live freely and naturally in the turmoil and tension of the modern world.
BLURBS #No one has given us such a concise, freshly written introduction to the whole history of this Far Eastern development of Buddhist thought as Alan Watts, in the present, highly readable work. -- Joseph Campbell, N.Y. Times Book Review
