✓ Tao: The Watercourse Way õ Download by ✓ Alan W. Watts Book is great, but was folded and therefore couldn t gift it Brother missed his birthday present.
ok book but no for me sorry.
Drawing On Ancient And Modern Sources, Watts Treats The Chinese Philosophy Of Tao In Much The Same Way As He Did Zen Buddhism In His Classic The Way Of Zen Critics Agree That This Last Work Stands As A Perfect Monument To The Life And Literature Of Alan Watts Excellent book Well written Insightful commentary Alan Watts at his very best.
Alan Watts is obviously an extremely intelligent and well read man who has a wonderful way of writing He is British and sharp as a razor, and his use of analogy is entertaining and clarifying He knows a lot about Chinese caligraphy and about Taoism in general, so his interpretations of many well known and already translated verses adds a fresh new perspective, and I think a valuable one.
One thing Alan does that many writers do not is apply the insights to life He tries to show how your own life can be enjoyable by using these Taoist perspectives, and he does this effectively I m the author of Self Help Stuff That Works, and I am an expert on self help The ways of perceiving the world Alan presents in this book are effec Many years ago I undertook an extensive program of reading in Zen Buddhism, which as many know is simply Buddhism as filtered through the Taoist sensibility I must have read or consulted upwards of a hundred books before finally getting around to Alan Watts Way of Zen Bummer What I found was that pretty well everything I d learned was right there in Watts, plus a few inimitable bits of his own Did someone say he was a genius To read the present book it isn t, of course, necessary to have read The Way of Zen first, although you ll probably want to read it afterwards Nor is it necessary to have read Lao Tzu or Chuang Tzu, although those who haven t will probably want to go on to them too They ll want to go on to get the rest of the story, because the present book was unfortunately unfinished at the time of Watts death.
Desp The Watercourse way is a most wonderful work on Taoism and mysticism spirituality in general I started to read the book with only a vague understanding of Taoism, but when I was done I was in love with the philosophy Alan Watt s characteristic intelligent and compassionate way of writing shines through, and with his help one can really wrap their head around very complex ideas.
Although some parts dealing with chinese translation and calligraphy can be somewhat monotonous, the insight gained from a heightened understanding of Tao, Te and wu wei than make up for any shortcomings of the book This book is definately an important stepping stone on my personal spiritual journey I just wish he had put the fun stuff in.
Brilliant A masterpiece of Non Duality If you get this, grok this, that s all you need.
perfect in all points great book and service
