The Bizarre Life of Alan Watts


Alan Watts, born in England and living most of his life in the United States,
was a writer, speaker & philosopher.
Watts was best known for making Japanese, Chinese, & Indian spiritual
traditions in the form of Buddhism, Taoism, and Hinduism entertainingly
accessible to a wide and popular audience throughout the world.
Alan Watts also played a pivotal & central role in the spiritual revolution that
shook the religious status quo of the United States during the 1960s.
This change in the religious consciousness of the US brought to the
American public ancient teachings from Hinduism, Buddhism, Sufism,
Esoteric Christianity and other mystical religious traditions.
This spiritual revolution changed the United States in ways that are still felt
Yoga, meditation, vegetarian diets, chanting, nonviolent protests, therapies
of all kinds, feminism, equal rights, herbal & alternative medicines &

the 1960s and were products of the spiritual revolution.
For many spiritual seekers in the United States & other parts of the Western
World, Alan Watts was their trusted guide through this incredible spiritual
Watts introduced people to spiritual and religious practices which would
help to improve and intensify the lives of hundreds of thousands, if not
millions, of people.
And, Watts treated these unfamiliar and sometimes extremely unfamiliar
religious traditions, paths, & practices in a very readable and accessible
writing style.
