The Book

On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

In The Book, Alan Watts provides us with a much-needed answer to the problem of personal identity, distilling and adapting the Hindu philosophy of Vedanta.

At the root of human conflict is our fundamental misunderstanding of who we are. The illusion that we are isolated beings, unconnected to the rest of the universe, has led us to view the “outside” world with hostility, and has fueled our misuse of technology and our violent and hostile subjugation of the natural world. To help us understand that the self is in fact the root and ground of the universe, Watts has crafted a revelatory primer on what it means to be human—and a mind-opening manual of initiation into the central mystery of existence.

Just read it :)

It helped put things together that i failed to notice before. I feel less confused and more relaxed and for others it will completely change their lives all at once, it was not to much of a turn of events for myself because I had already heard a lot of his teachings, and even if you have heard him you still should to read this!
