Outline of story
A Tengu (long-nosed goblin) whose life had been saved by a priest appeared in front of the priest and offered him to fulfill any wish for him as a token of gratitude. The unselfish priest answered he wanted nothing. But the Tengu insisted on returning the favor, so the priest told that he wanted to see Daie, or a preaching given by Buddha at Mt. Ryoju of India in the old days. Tengu imprudently accepted it, but made sure to the priest that he would “never become too pious to directly see and worship the Buddha.” Now, will the Tengu be able to achieve his return of the favor?
