Yes! Alan Watts! If you're into Buddhism or other Eastern Philosophy Alan Watts is a great place to start. He's a Beat Era writer, one of the first hipsters to bring Eastern Philosophy to the Western perspective! Worth a listen if you want to be all zen and om and stuff.
Alan Watts is probably the single best download I have found on the entire Itunes Store, and it's free! His way of explaining such hard to comprehend things like Zen Buddhism and other Eastern Philosophies are the best I've ever found, and his way of not pushing beliefes and ideals upon you, simply offering his take and understanding is something that I feel really sets him apart. These podcasts are really priceless! I just wish some of his audio books were available on here to purchase! Enjoy!
Thanks so much for bringing this !
There are so much talk about yoga, eastern philosophies and so on these days that it is hard to discern anything from the whole rumble. Especially in the now abundant self help literature. I guess I like Alan Watts' lectures because apart from his awesome ability to explain eastern philosophies he doesn't take himself seriously at all...and you tend to do the same. If you are wary about any of it I suggest you listen to his lecture called Spiritual Authority (part 1). I couldn't stop laughing as he was talking about gurus and why he is talking about any of this. Enjoy!
