I have heard story about a few monks who climb to the top of a mountain. after a while they jumped, and achieved better spiritual "rank" - i don't remember exactly - maybe the sotapanna become sakadagmi or something like that.

I've tried hard to find the story, but no sucsess.

Some one have herd about it?????

thank you so much

They didn't jump — they climbed up and throw away the ladder.

was one of them. He didn't achieve stream-winning in that life-time, but became an Arahant in the time of the Buddha Gotama.

was another.

Thank you so much!!!
You helped me a lot - I'm writting a short play which is a kind of cultivating three Buddhist stories into the problematic Israeli's reality.
And if one day you'll visit Palestine/Israel pls contact me and we could meet.
All the best, and may the smile be with you
