A Story

To illustrate our earlier post let me tell a story:

Two Buddhist monks were traveling down a road and came to a river. At the river, which had been swollen by several days of rain, waiting to cross was a beautiful woman. While the younger monk turned away from the woman, the older monk picked up the woman and carried her across the river. Afterwards, as the monks continued on their journey, the younger monk was clearly agitated by the actions of the older monk. The older monk responded by telling the younger monk: "I left her (the woman) back at the river; why do you still continue to carry her?"
