Alan Watts was a famous British philosopher, author and speaker, best known for his interpretation of the Eastern philosophy of Western audiences. Born to Christian parents in England, he became interested in Buddhism while attending King's School, Canterbury. Later, he became a member of the Buddhist Lodge, where he met many scholars and spiritual masters, helping him shape his ideas. He was a progressive writer and began writing at the age of fourteen. Many of his early works were published in the Lodge journal. At the age of twenty-three, he moved to the USA, where he first received training under a Zen master, but left before being ordained. He then studied Christian scriptures and worked as a priest in Chicago for six years before leaving San Francisco to pursue a career in education. At the same time, he began giving speeches on Oriental philosophy and soon appealed to a wider audience both at home and abroad. In addition to writing more than 25 books, he also left a library of almost 400 lectures, which is still in great demand
