The Monk & the Lady

Hi,

Suddenly, I think of an old Zen Story.

It is about 2 monks and a lady.

2 monks and a lady come across a river. The lady does not know how to cross the river. One of the monk carries the lady at his back.

After a looooooong while, the other monk asks the first monk why he carried the lady. It did not fitted the moral code of being a monk.

The first monk calmly replies, the lady had already left, why she is still on your back?

Why is she still on your back???
