Teacher, writer, student, philospher, meditator and child of humanity who attempted to find meaningful answers to questions that children asked. Watts was a teacher amongst teachers who had a natural talent to explain complex things with great clarity.
He was a bridge between the East and the West who, like Nagarjuna, used language and thought to help unravel the tightly coiled mystery of itself. He did it with wit, humor, clarity and made seemingly inaccessible ideas clear. He used words in their highest purpose, to point us in the direction of the direct experience of awakening to our true nature.
