The Holy Man Zen Motivational Story

Very long ago there lived an old man in a village close to the hills. He helped the villagers with wise words whenever they were in trouble. His fame spread far and wide.

A farmer from a neighbouring village came to visit him one day.

Reaching the house of the holy man, he saw an old servant at the gate.

“I want to see the holy man,” said the farmer.

The old servant took him in and then led him out in two minutes.

Shocked by his behaviour, the farmer protested, “But said I want to see the holy man.”

“You have already seen him. See every man you meet as a holy man; and you’ll never need to travel so far to see another holy man again,” said the holy man.
