Synopsis
Discover how the understanding and practice of Zen can bring peace and enlightenment into your daily life in this classic work, now available on CD

Narrated by Ralph Blum, this audio program presents readings of carefully chosen selections from Alan Watts’s classic bestseller, illuminated by rare recordings of the author personally commenting and elaborating on the key concepts and ideas of his seminal work including:
• The history of Zen
• The principles and practice of Zen
• The tradition of Za-Zen (meditation) and the Koan
• The integration of Zen into every aspect of life

THE WAY OF ZEN presents an understandable, inspirational, and spiritually rewarding exploration of Zen Buddhism—a way of liberation—that may be one of the most precious gifts of Asia to the world.
Amazon.com Review
After D.T. Suzuki, Alan Watts stands as the godfather of Zen in America. Often taken to task for inspiring the flimsy spontaneity of Beat Zen, Watts had an undeniably keen understanding of his subject. Nowhere is this more evident than in his 1957 classic The Way of Zen, which has been reissued. Watts takes the reader back to the philosophical foundations of Zen in the conceptual world of Hinduism, follows Buddhism's course through the development of the early Mahayana school, the birth of Zen from Buddhism's marriage with Chinese Taoism, and on to Zen's unique expression in Japanese art and life. As a Westerner, Watts anticipates the stumbling blocks encountered with such concepts as emptiness and no-mind, then illustrates with flawlessly apt examples. Many popular books have been written on Zen since Watts' time, but few have been able to muster the rare combination of erudition and clarity that have kept The Way of Zen in readers' hands decade after decade. --Brian Bruya
