Two young monks were walking along the shore of a lake, past a small island. Listening on the breeze, they heard a familiar mantra, but it was being intoned improperly. The monks got into a boat, rowed to the island, approached the aesthete and instructed him in the proper intonation of the mantra. The aesthete thanked them generously and the monks departed in the boat. Shortly, they heard a .. pat.. pish.. pat.. Turning around, they saw the aesthete approaching the boat, running on the surface of the water. Stopping a few feet from the boat, standing on the surface of the lake, the old fellow asked, "Can you please instruct me in the 'right' way to perform the mantra? Please? I forgot what you said."
