Description

The modern-day parables in Zen Master Next Door send positive and inspirational messages. The insightful tales explore how all relationships touch our souls. Reflection helps you tap into a yearning to lead an inspiring life. The parables demonstrate how deep-rooted and ancient ideals remain timeless. Simplistic encounters with even a neighbor next door can have profound meaning. In today’s world, we accept hectic lifestyles and balance our family, job, and pleasures. Zen Master reminds us to take time and think about what we value. Live for today, not yesterday or tomorrow. The past becomes a distorted memory, and tomorrow can be a fantasy. By focusing on the here and now, we secure our future.

Each story in this book has meaning for all regardless of faith. Readers can find messages that connect them to their spirit. Zen Master’s parables will allow you to pause, listen, and capture the sacred in the ordinary world. Kardos reminds us of the commonalities in all of humankind and that learning comes from wisdom. Every life experience shapes us, and if we listen to what we learn, we gain a greater understanding. We pass our knowledge onto others through our actions and tales. Storytelling has been an age-old facet of life and helps us find the truth. By listening to ourselves, we find our potential to live a life of inspiration. These gentle but moving stories help you embrace the present and let go of the past. Like our lives, the parables have simplicity and complexity.

    WOW!
    A refreshing look at everyday life! What a great book! I really enjoyed this series of short stories. The characters in this book spoke to me, oftentimes giving me pause to check my own moral compass. Mr. Kardos has provided me with some great outlooks on everyday life while entertaining me with clever, enjoyable tales. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down. A book with a unique set of messages- I highly recommend it!

  5. Benjamin Demeter

    “Zen Master Next Door” achieves something that few books in this genre even attempt.
    It is profoundly uplifting without being excessively preachy. A lot of the credit for this goes to the absolute moral messages communicated in each story.

    Two Words
    Powerful and quiet. What a powerhouse combination! Combined, these two words, describe the content and tone of “The Zen Master Next Door”.
