and began Zen training in New York.

At Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, 

he received a master's degree in theology.

Watts joined the faculty of the American Academy of Asian Studies.

Watts gained a large following in the San Francisco Bay Area while working

as a  volunteer programmer at KPFA, a Pacifica Radio station in Berkeley.

-

Watts wrote more than 25 books and articles on subjects important to Eastern

and Western religion, introducing the then-burgeoning youth culture to

The Way of Zen (1957), one of the first bestselling books on Buddhism.

His legacy has been kept alive by his son, Mark Watts, and by many of his

recorded talks and lectures that have found new life on the Internet.

According to the critic Erik Davis, his "writings and recorded talks

still shimmer  with a profound and galvanizing lucidity."
