How can you put out such a great fire with just drops of water from your wings? Parrot replied: I do it with compassion, thinking about virtues, so nothing is impossible. Either way, I still do it.
In a bamboo bush at the foot of the Himalayas lived a parrot with many species of birds and mammals. One day, a big wind suddenly hit. The wind blows causing the bamboos to rub against each other, creating a fire. The fire was spread by the wind and quickly became a very large fire. The parrot cried out piteously, for the shelter of birds and animals was being consumed by the fire.
Because of the desire to repay the bamboo bush that had carried him for a long time, and at the same time to save many poor birds and animals trapped in the fire, the parrot plunged into the pond and dipped his wings into the water. , then soared into the sky, dripping water on that fire.

– Your mind is very strong, but how can you put out such a big fire with just drops of water from your wings?
– I do it with compassion, thinking about the virtues, so nothing is impossible. Either way, I still do it. Even in my next life, I will still do the same.
That great will of the parrot moved Pham Thien, and Pham Thien joined forces to help put out the fire.
