"Then when that didn't work they sat on his face and head. It was very difficult for him," they added.
But Master Yancan clearly didn't mind the pair making a monkey of him, and wrote a poem to them saying:"Perhaps in our former life, we departed in a hurry, but in this life, we don’t have to rush our closeness. Dear friends, please be more gentle."
