Consider how this short talk by Alan Watts draws on Hindu and/or Buddhist thought:

1). Do you think Watts is discussing primarily Hindu concepts or primarily Buddhist concepts? Explain what concepts of the tradition(s) you think Watt’s is drawing on.

2). Give some examples that help defend your view of which religion is most represented in this video.

3). Which definition of “you” do you think Watts is relying on, Atman or Anatta? Explain.

4). What is your own understanding of what “you” fundamentally are? How does it differ or align with the ideas of the self found in Hinduism and Buddhism?
