Animated Alan Watts

Alan Watts was a prolific author of books on comparative religion. He was a genius at contrasting Christianity, Judaism with Zen Buddhism, Hinduism and Taoism. In many ways has what Osho called Zorba the Buddah because he had his feet firmly in the West and the East. After growing up in England he settled in California for most of his life.

His most popular books include The Way of Zen (1957) and Tao: The Watercourse Way (1975). Many of his recorded lectures are highly entertaining and he often described himself as a spiritual entertainer not a guru. The animations below were produced by Trey Parker & Matt Stone, the creators of South Park.
