Zen Practice, Zen Art (1 Cassette)

Overview

Zen Buddhism is a way and view of life not easily defined. It has to be suggested by saying what it is not— in the same way that a sculptor reveals an image to us by the act of removing pieces from a block of stone.

Overview

Zen Buddhism is a way and view of life not easily defined. It has to be suggested by saying what it is not— in the same way that a sculptor reveals an image to us by the act of removing pieces from a block of stone. Zen Practice, Zen Art is a refreshingly clear yet remarkably detailed explanation of this most tantalizing aspect of Asian culture.

The tradition of Za-Zen study and the Koan The integration of Zen into every aspect of life The importance of interest from the West in the preservation of Zen as a living philosophy

Narrated by Ralph Blum, this program also features rare recordings of the author, Alan Watts, personally elaborating on key passages from his classic bestseller, The Way of Zen.

An avid Zen practitioner discusses the history of Zen, its influence on the arts, Za-Zen study, and the role Westerners are playing in the preservation of Zen as a living philosophy. A perfect companion to The Way of Zen.

Meet the Author

Alan W. Watts (1915-1973) was instrumental in introducing Eastern thought to Western civilization. He held both a master's degree in theology and a doctorate of divinity, and is best known as an interpreter of Indian and Chinese philosophy in general, and Zen Buddhism in particular. He was the author of hundreds of articles on philosophy and religion, and 33 books which have been translated into eleven languages.

Ralph Blum has narrated a host of titles for Macmillan Audio, including Hero with a Thousand Faces, He, She, Zen Practice, and The Book.  In describing Ralph's reading of Zen in the Art of Archery, also published by Macmillan Audio, AudioFile magazine declared, "Selecting reader Ralph Blum was a great way to resurrect the ideas in this rich and satisfying book. His academic tone inspires respect and makes the ideas even more intriguing."
