Q90. Student: “What are you when your body is not you?”

A. Master: “A piece of cake.”
Student: “What is it like?”
Master: “When small, it is smaller than a mustard seed.
When large, larger than the whole universe.”


It is neither large nor small since it has no boundary.
It never moves however hard we try to lift it, but it is not heavy at all.
