The Bud­dha Imag­ines The Unimag­in­able (And Gets It Right!)

yojana, the Bud­dha said, is equiv­a­lent to:

Four krosha, each of which was the length of
One thou­sand arcs, each of which was the length of
Four cubits, each of which was the length of
Two spans, each of which was the length of
Twelve pha­langes of fin­gers, each of which was the length of
Seven grains of bar­ley, each of which was the length of
Seven mus­tard seeds, each of which was the length of
Seven par­ti­cles of dust stirred up by a cow, each of which was the length of
Seven specks of dust dis­turbed by a ram, each of which was the length of
Seven specks of dust stirred up by a hare, each of which was the length of
Seven specks of dust car­ried away by the wind, each of which was the length of
Seven tiny specks of dust, each of which was the length of
Seven minute specks of dust, each of which was the length of
Seven par­ti­cles of the first atoms.
