Buddhism: The Religion of No-Religion

by Alan Watts

ISBN: 9780804856089

"To really do nothing, with perfection, is as difficult as doing everything." --Alan Watts

Buddhism: The Religion of No-Religion presents 12 powerful essays by Alan Watts, the guru for an entire generation of 20th century thinkers, who continue to be relevant and impactful today. Watts was an engaging speaker and an icon of America's Beat and Counterculture movements whose friends included Aldous Huxley, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, John Cage and Joseph Campbell.

This book is a valuable reminder of the peace that can be had by looking inward. Watts explores all aspects of Buddhism--from its roots in ancient India to the explosion of interest in Zen and Tibetan Buddhism taught in the West today. The fascinating topics covered in this book include:

Finding a Middle Way: How a spiritual path to awakening is formed not just by avoiding extreme indulgence but also extreme denial
The Religion of No-Religion: How Buddhism eschews any particular dogma but instead acts as a guide to understanding oneself
Buddhism as Dialogue: How Zen teaches us that we are one with the world and so as we learn to navigate it, we must also learn about ourselves

Watts also outlines the differences between Buddhism and other religions, and reviews the Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Path. A new foreword by Mark Watts explains his father's life's work and teachings.
