World Religions: Volume 4 Zen Meditations With Alan Watts
Alan Watts (1915-1973), the foremost Western teacher of Zen Buddhism, collaborated with award-winning filmmaker Elda Hartley to create this elegant anthology of lyrical guided meditations into inner realities. Watts on the practice of Zen: “If you think the world is going somewhere, that there are certain things that are supposed to happen, and there are certain things that are supposed not to happen, you never see the way that it is like music. Music has no destination. We don’t play it in order to get somewhere. Music is a pattern that we enjoy as it unfolds.” And so it is with these meditative films.
