On one of the best and well written trivia sites on the net, I found a collection of extremely nice Indian parables. This one the story of the two monks and the beutifull woman hit me particularly, and is one of the most worryingly accurate thoughts about sa I can imagine.

indeed, I'd recommend reading all the stories in that section, sinse most are extremely thought provoking.

Wow dark,

Great thoughts there, what is worth carrying and when is it no longer our "load". Thank you.

I also like how the young monk could only see the moment as sexually charged rather than a simple service whereas the old monk was able to overlook any sexual components, provide a service, and move on in his journey.

To be honest I expected the old monk to say something like "the real question is why didn't you carry her?" : P
