Child of fortune by Norman Spinrad( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This narrative in the heroic tradition tells the tale of a young wanderer, Wendi Shasta Leonardo, who sought her destiny on an odyssey of self-discovery amid the many worlds of man. The spoiled, sheltered, carefree girl from the small planet of Glade sets out on her trip to the decadent world of Edoku. Penniless on the streets of the strange new world, she encounters Pater Pan, the legendary leader of an itinerant band of artisans called Gypsy Jokers. He becomes her lover and teacher, and gives her the name Sunshine, as she masters the art of ruespieler (yarnspinner). She then undertakes a reckless journey with the dashing Merchant Prince Guy Vlad Boca through the forest of Bloomenveldt, and finds the end of her odyssey. Spinrad calls the youthful wanderers who set out on the road from innocence to experience in the exotic, intersteller civilization of the Second Starfaring Age, the children of fortune.

Zen and the beat way by Alan Watts( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Jack Karouac wrote about Zen in Dharma Bums he was echoing the sentiments of the Beat generation, who found in Zen credence for a way of life unencumbered by the limits of "square" society. And it was Alan Watts who first wrote and spoke about Zen and Eastern culture in terms accessible to mainstream Western audiences. Through his popular radio series Way Beyond the West Alan Watts brought listeners a delightful and practical side of Zen, which he prescribed as "a cure for education and culture." By the early sixties his radio programs were renowned for their synthesis of Eastern wisdom and everyday life. Several of these radio talks have been selected and edited by Mark Watts, Alan's oldest son, to introduce a new generation to Zen and the Beat Way. Through this collection we see influences of D.T. Suzuki, C.G. Jung, Gary Snyder and others. Specific chapters discuss Zen influences on traditional Japanese and Chinese arts and explore the celebrated concept of the "controlled accident" within the rich tradition of Zen aesthetics. Also included is "Return to the Forest," an essay that explores the works of Joseph Campbell on the earliest Beat tradition

Become what you are by Alan Watts( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Life exists only at this very moment, and in this moment it is infinite and eternal. For the present moment is infinitely small; before we can measure it, it has gone, and yet it exists forever. ... You may believe yourself out of harmony with life and its eternal Now; but you cannot be, for you are life and exist Now." In this collection of writings, including nine new chapters never before available in book form, Watts displays the intelligence, playfulness of thought, and simplicity of language that has made him so perennially popular as an interpreter of Eastern thought for Westerners. He draws on a variety of religious traditions, and covers topics such as the challenge of seeing one's life "just as it is, " the Taoist approach to harmonious living, the limits of language in the face of ineffable spiritual truth, and the psychological symbolism of Christian thought.--Publisher description
