Watts "I have loved this man immensely. I
have loved Buddha for different reasons; I have loved
Solomon for a different reason. They are enlightened, Alan
Watts is not. He is an American... not a born American,
that′s his only hope; he just emigrated there. But he has

tremendous, fantastic. Alan Watts was a drunkard, but still
he was very close." (Osho in
