I have a custom block in my layout file like this:

<block type="xxx/xxx" name="xxx" template = "bar.phtml">

How do I get the value of label from bar.phtml ?

Please note I do not want to use setData function to set my variable and pass it. I want to extract the value inside tags from the phtml (or anywhere else). I hope its clear.
