    A geisha girl was going for a very important programme, decked up in
    her best attire. On the road to her venue, there was a big puddle, and
    she was afraid that her dress would get soiled. Suddenly, she saw two
    monks coming that way, but since the Buddhist vows do not permit them
    to even look towards women, she did not expect anyhelp from those
    ascetics. To her great surprise, the elder of the two celibate men came
    over to her. Without talking a single word, he picked her up and carried
    her across that water obstacle. His younger colleague was shocked
    beyond words, but since they had taken a vow of silence for ten days,
    he said nothing.

    In due course, when their 'silence period' ended, the younger disciple
    went to his senior, and gave vent to his anguish and dismay at the
    incident which seemed to bother him night and day. What the older monk
    said in reply is of great importance: "Yes, I did touch her, but I dropped
    her as soon as possible. You seem to be still carrying her!"

    Ensconced in this parable is a great deal of wisdom.
    The older monk had taught two lessons to his younger friend:
    (1) 'If a rule prevents you from doing a good turn, its violation is not a sin' and

    (2) 'It is good to deliberately forget whatever is not worthy of remembering'
