Blurb: Once Buddha, picking up a some sand, asked Which is greater, this fistful of sand or the sand in all the rivers? The monks answered that the sand in his fist was a small amount. Buddha responded, The things I’ve taught are like this fistful of sand. Buddha would teach only that which was useful.
