The teachings of Alan Watts animated by the makers of South Park

Yes, the creators of South Park have given many gifts to the world. Now they’ve turned their attention to Buddhism and Zen philosopher Alan Watts by animating a selection of his teachings, in their usually hilarious and irreverent style. It’s wonderful. Press play and enjoy.

And match Watt’s spoken word with his written thoughts in The Way of Zen and This Is It.

    I LOVE this. Please watch and share! Alan Watts via the creators of “South Park.” Priceless. One gem: “[if you lived just for the end, success or whatever], you missed the entire point. …[Life] was a musical thing. You were supposed to sing or dance while the thing was being played.” https://damiengwalter.com/2014/11/29/the-teachings-of-alan-watts-animated-by-the-makers-of-south-park/
