According to a Japanese Zen story, Zen masters Ekido and Tanzan were on a journey to Kyoto. When they approached the river side, they heard a girl’s voice calling for help. When they arrived they saw a young pretty girl, stranded in the river. Ekido immediately jumped down the river and carried the girl safely to the other side where, together with Tanzan, he continued his journey.
As the sun began to set, and they made arrangements to settle down for the night, Tanzan could no longer contain himself and blurted out: “How could you pick up that girl? Do you remember that we are not allowed to touch women?”
Ekido replied immediately: “I only carried the girl to the river bank, but you are still carrying her.”
