In this example of filial piety, Wang Xiang (Osho) goes out in wintertime to catch fresh fish for his ailing stepmother. Although his stepmother was very cruel to him, he nonetheless remained a dutiful son to her. The land was covered in ice and snow; where could anyone catch fish now? Sitting on the iced-over river in despair, he began to cry and his hot tears began to pool beneath him. Struck with an idea, he removed his coat and shirt and lay down on the ice. Soon, his body heat and tears melted a hole in the ice, and two fish leapt out of the crack. When his stepmother saw the fish, she repented of her former selfishness and completely changed her attitude towards her stepson.
