    Yup! Understand the REASONING behind the rule rather than following it blindly…

    I really love this saying. It reminds me of the importance of not holding onto grudges indefinitely. The younger monk’s error was not in refusing to help the woman, it was in fuming and internally raging about the older monk’s action.

    An excellent tale in separating the spirit of the law from the letter of the law.

    I’ve heard a slightly different version before, where the youger monk is angry because the woman showed no gratitude, but it remains a very good story to tell someone who just can’t ‘drop it.’ I like the new twist that weaves in another good lesson, mr_sherman.

    So do whatever you want and anyone who comments on it is wrong?

    I read this little story years ago. It is one I still remember and keep in my toolkit.
