    Whenever I'm feeling a little off I can just listen to a little of this recording and feel so much more right.

    "The Realist"

    The most cut and dry education of sense of the self I have heard so far. Alan has a pragmatism about his speech that makes black and white seem beautiful. Good stuff!

    "Eye opener "

    Definitely an interesting series of lectures. Interesting material on the history of eastern religions and philosophies. Alan watts manages to present these in an accessible way with a lot of humor, making it understandable for everyone. Although you might not agree to all his interpretations, the lectures guarantee an interesting points of view to think about.

    "Wonderful companion to life"
    Any additional comments?

    Alan Watts collection of lectures should be mandatory listening for anyone who has struggled with the backwords view in which we see the world today. As separate when we are intrinsically linked to our environment. Great translation of Buddhist and Hindu concepts to be digested by the western world of today. Can listen to these several times, learning new concepts each listen.
