It is said that a Zen nun was carrying water back from the well when her pole broke and the pots crashed down.
It was a fullmoon night, and the moon was reflected in the water post. Shouldering the pole with the pots suspended from it, she was returning to the ashram and watching the reflection of the moon in the pots. The pots fell. She stood there in shock. The pots fell, water flowed out the moon too flowed out. It is said enlightenment occurred then and there; Samadhi happened. She returned dancing. She had seen that this world is nothing more than a reflection.
