ZEN BOOK
AN AUTHENTIC
ZEN TEACHING
An authentic Chan (Zen) teaching, through a moving experiential story, which will amaze you and touch your soul deeply. It is about the course towards the heart as it unfolds in the life of modern man. This book is an inspiring guide that could lead you to new spiritual paths and change the way you see life.

You are a raindrop that has already begun its journey to the earth. You are happy, you are sorry, you are in pain, in fear, filled with hope. Your ultimate destination, the one you cannot avoid, is your union with the ocean. You came from the ocean, you became a cloud and then a raindrop, returning to the source.

You are about to start an internal journey with only one destination. The understanding that you are not an independent raindrop. You are a raindrop in the vast, endless ocean of energy and you are an integral part of this ocean.

There is no need for you to get somewhere. You are already there. You just need to open your inner doors and allow the ocean to unite with you...

AUTHOR’S BIOGRAPHY
Author’s Biography
Yiannis Kostopoulos was born in Athens, Greece in 1968. From a very early age, he started his inner journey following many different spiritual paths and teachings. During your inner quest you may take different roads, but the actual Truth, the truth which unfolds and appears to everyone who seeks it with a pure heart, is only ONE.

All raindrops reach the same ocean. The names of the oceans may vary, but the sea is one. When you ‘see’ the true light, when you realize that you and the ocean are one, you will feel the inner need to share this personal experience.
There are millions of raindrops that want to live a life full of happiness, joy, and ecstasy. Eyes full of will, but at the same time entrapped within the needs of everyday life. Eyes that see the ocean and long for knowledge of the truth. Eyes that want to experience the Truth.

This book was written to become your friend in this magical journey of life, who will speak straight to your soul.

"Now that you feel alone, experience this new state in blessing. Always take advantage of each period of your life wisely."

“Alone?” I wondered. The sky is endless, as is the sea.

The journey is long. There are moments of light, moments of darkness. When light and darkness become one, dawn emerges. There is so much beauty all around.

THE INNER DOORS
When you talk about God, you look up in the sky and say, “I want to reach You.” But to reach where?

It’s like a waterdrop saying to the ocean “I want to get to the ocean!” Isn’t it already an essential part of it? How can this goal be defined? What is there to accomplish?

Eventually, he stopped gently and stared to the horizon, where the sun created a trail of mesmerizing colors. He remained for a while with his arms open in salutation, as if he was thanking Existence for all its unique beauty. Then, he turned around to me and shouted.

“Hey kid, wipe the sadness from your eyes, open your heart and do not lose faith, not even for a moment. What is to be given to you, will be given to you, as long as you ask for it. Is it worth missing out on such beauty?”

"Just like the sun generously illuminates the planet, you must shine until your own light spreads around you!

To enhance your inner light, your love needs to become stronger. The sun does not choose where it sheds its light. Imagine if the sun decided where to shine!”

An excellent book, powerful and touching. You lose yourself in its pages and you do not want it to end. Easy to read, the writing is comprehensible and I cannot compare it with other similar books. For me, it goes way beyond. Enlightening & liberating regarding how we see our lives and deal with our issues.

The hero of the book takes you by the hand and gently leads you on a journey of self-discovery. This engaging story uplifts emotionally, challenges mentally and comforts and guides spiritually, while all the while speaking directly to the heart. This book has been truly inspirational.

I would like to comment the part where it is mentioned that “when the mind realizes that you are fighting it, it will resist in every possible way. As the mind is lifted higher, it will find fertile ground to set up its own games and lure you off your path.” So true, it made me think and realize so much! The whole book gave me a lot of ‘homework’. An outstanding book...thank you author!
