One monk used to live there. He had to walk a long way to fetch water, but he did it everyday. One day, another monk appeared in the temple. Now who’s to fetch water became a regular argument between them. Luckily they found a solution : they carried water together. Then the 3rd monk became a member of the temple, which brought complexity, because they all thought the others should go and get water.
