The tradition of Za-Zen study and the KoanThe integration of Zen into every aspect of lifeThe importance of interest from the West in the preservation of Zen as a living philosophy Narrated by Ralph Blum, this program also features rare recordings of the author, Alan Watts, personally elaborating on key passages from his classic bestseller, "The Way of Zen."
