He ate all medicines which were said to be effective, but they did not work well at all. So, he was about to give up on life. The sick and old man who could not live much longer left home to find the scenic places to spend his not long time left in the well-known mountains. One day, the senior arrived at this mineral spring and slept in the open to sleep under a cozy tree. In the dream, another old man appeared and asked the sick person, "Why on earth do you sleep in the heart of the mountain?“ The circumgyrating person told his situations. The old man appearing in the dreams offered to him saying that "Then, dig the place where you lie down,” and disappeared suddenly. The sick person dug and the clear water gushed out. So, the sick stayed there for a few days more and drank the water. He ended up getting over his illness and afterwards, he served the spring water site as a mountain spring altar and extended it every courtesy.
