Once upon a time, two monks came to a river bank. They saw a lovely girl who was unable to cross the river.

One of the monks shouted to her, "Come on, little girl." Then he lifted her in his arms and carried her to the other side of the river.

The other monk said nothing, but was puzzled and unhappy.

In the evening, he no longer could restraint himself. He asked his companion, "We monks should not go near female. Why did you do so?"

His companion laughed and said, "I have left the girl there. Are you still carrying her?"
