Two monks,on their way to their monastery, found an exceedingly beautiful woman at the river bank. Like them, she wished to cross the river but the water was too high. So, one of the monks lifted her onto his back and carried her across. His fellow monk was thoroughly scandalized. for two full hours he berated him on his negligence in keeping his holy rule, which said he should not touch a woman. And he actually carried her across the river! What would people say? He had brought his vacation into disrepute.
The offending monk patiently listened to the never-ending sermon. Finally, he broke in with, “Brother, I dropped that woman at the river bank. And you are still carrying her.”
