Q141. Student: “Where are you when your body is not you?”

A. Master: (Pointing to the tea cup before him) “It’s in the cup.”
Student: (After looking very closely into the cup.) “There is nothing in it, Sir!”
Master: (Looking into the cup) “It’s here.”


Master is showing it clearly.
Why is the student jumping into the cup?
Where is ‘here’?
