Description:Translation (by Maran Seng Pan) This story is about an old monkey that killed itself because it imitated exactly the same as a man. The story warns us if we don't carefully consider what is good or bad to imitate, it can make us kill ourselves. Once, there was a tall Schima Wallichii tree which grew in a man's farm. An old monkey lived in that tree. Every early morning, the monkey always picked and ate the corns before the man arrived at farm. After eating, it climbed up the tree and stayed there the whole day. Even though the man shot it with crossbow and drove it out many times, it never left the farm. Therefore, the man, owner of the farm, was thinking of an idea to drive it out. One day, he left a very sharp double-edged knife on its way. He also remained a mirror. The next day, the monkey went back to the tree after having corns. On its way, it saw a knife and a mirror and took them. When the man arrived at the farm, he purposely held a mirror and a knife in each hand. Since the monkey saw he was looking at the mirror and combing his hair, it also did the same as the man. When he picked the lice, it imitated him again. After that, he took the knife and slit his throat with the knife's blunt edge. By looking at him, the old monkey also looked at the mirror and slit its throat. Since two edges of the knife it used were very sharp, he cut off his throat and was dead. Therefore, imitating others is very dangerous. If we copy exactly the same as other, it can lead us to death.
