An Ancient Folktale about Kindness: Lord of the Cranes

21 minutes

Folktales are an ancient method of entertainment and teaching lessons. They are also a way of promoting and preserving cultural traditions. The Espresso Talk Today team loves this ancient art of storytelling and education to add a special flavor to its show. In this folktale called Lord of the Cranes, the main character tests the kindness and helpfulness of a wealthy businessman.  The story, similar to the parable of the Good Samaritan, introduces the importance of showing kindness. Elder Mellanese returns to read this ancient Chinese folktale. Sit back. Get comfortable. Listen. Think. Enjoy. This is storytelling at its finest!
