The Monk Who Sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma


Robin Sharma is a well known professional guru. In "The Monk Who Sold his Ferrari" Mantle, he tells us the story of Julian Mantle, a highly successful litigation lawyer who has it, fancy house, private island, and a Ferrari! He collapses of a heart attack and barely survives. He then disappears to take a break, until miraculously reappearing in the office of his protégé John three years later, looking younger and healthier. Julian Mantle is born again, and he has a story to tell. That is actually the condition of his nirvana.

As the book progresses, we learn about Julian’s journey. John asks questions and Julian explains how the principles he learned can be applied to John’s life, or in fact, to anyone’s life. Julian traveled far away to India and met many people, often poorer than him. The kindness of strangers gave him a different perspective. As he begins to find himself, he learns of a mythical place called Sivana, high up in the Himalayas. He somehow makes it there and meets Yogi Raman. Yogi Raman promises to help Julian find enlightenment, as long as he promises to spread the word.

You are sitting in the middle of a magnificent, lush, green garden. This garden is filled with the most spectacular flowers you have ever seen. The environment is supremely tranquil and silent. Savor the sensual delights of this garden and feel as if you have all the time in the world to enjoy this natural oasis. As you look around you see that in the center of this magical garden stands a towering, red lighthouse, six stories high. Suddenly, the silence of the garden is disturbed by a loud creaking as the door at the base of the lighthouse opens. Out stumbles a nine-foot-tall, nine-hundred-pound Japanese sumo wrestler who casually wanders into the center of the garden.

As this sumo wrestler starts to move around the garden, he finds a shiny gold stopwatch which someone had left behind many years earlier. He slips it on, and falls to the ground with an enormous thud. The sumo wrestler is rendered unconscious and lies there, silent and still. Just when you think he has taken his last breath, the wrestler awakens, perhaps stirred by the fragrance of some fresh yellow roses blooming nearby. Energized, the wrestler jumps swiftly to his feet and intuitively looks to his left.

He is startled at what he sees. Through the bushes at the very edge of the garden he observes a long winding path covered by millions of sparkling diamonds. Something
seems to instruct the wrestler to take the path, and to his credit, he does. This path leads him down the road of everlasting joy and eternal bliss.

Through the steel of discipline, you will forge a character rich with courage and peace. Through the virtue of Will, you are destined to rise to life's highest ideal and live
within a heavenly mansion filled with all that is good, joyful and vital. Without them, you are lost like a mariner without a compass, one who eventually sinks with his ship.
