Alan Watts discusses Zen Buddhism

BROADCAST: Dec. 1, 1960 | DURATION: 00:51:03


Zen Buddhism, explains Watts, offers a change in one's basic consciousness and of one's basic existence. Zen is a way of liberation from the illusion of oneself. It's not just about the inside of one's self but it's about the outside, too. Zen is not something exotic. It needn't be imported from Japan, said Watts.
