The Legend of the Monk and the Merchant tells the story of a grandfather who chooses to pass on the wisdom that he has learned through trials and experience to his grandson. He sat his grandson down and started to tell him the story of his life. The grandfather developed a set of 12 principles that were shaped around the story of his life and what it taught him. Each of these principles the grandfather passed on as keys to successful living. I loved reading this and seeing the true discipleship and passing of the wisdom as the grandson was starting out on his own.
This is an incredible story of a family’s wisdom being passed down from one generation to the next. The grandfather journaled his entire life in a leather journal. He passed this down to his grandson as he knew it was time to pass on the family legacy. This story not only teaches great principles for a successful life, but it gives phenomenal ideas of passing on family legacies and practices to the next generation. The principles are practical and applicable to every walk of life.
