A Single Handful
by Buddhadasa Bhikkhu

,)) 5,

To call something a fundamental principle of Buddhism is

'  

correct only if, first, it is a principle that aims at the quenching of


f (suffering) and, second, it has a logic that one can see for oneself without having to believe others.
The Buddha refused to deal with those things that dont lead to

/,  ('  % 


0! 1 %)

' &3/ *('

the extinction of dukkha. He didnt discuss them. Take the question of whether or not there is rebirth after death. What is reborn?
How is it reborn? What is its karmic inheritance? These questions
dont aim at the extinction of dukkha. That being so, they are not
the Buddhas teaching nor are they connected with it. They dont
lie within the range of Buddhism. Also, the one who asks about
such matters has no choice but to believe indiscriminately any answer thats given, because the one who answers wont be able to

/,  ('

' 

produce any proofs and will just be speaking according to his own
memory and feeling. The listener cant see for himself and consequently must blindly believe the others words. Little by little the
subject strays from dharma until it becomes something else altogether, unconnected with the extinction of dukkha.
Now, if we dont raise those sorts of issues, we can ask instead, Is there dukkha? and How can dukkha be extinguished?
The Buddha agreed to answer these questions. The listener can
recognize the truth of every word of the answers without having to
believe them blindly and can see the truth more and more clearly
until he understands for himself.
There arent that many fundamental, or root, principles of dharma. The Buddha said that his teaching is a single handful. A passage in the Samyutta-nikaya makes that clear. While walking
through the forest, the Buddha picked up a handful of fallen leaves

Atammayatasara

and asked the monks who were present to decide which was the
greater amount, the leaves in his hand or all the leaves in the forest. Of course, they all said that there were more leaves in the
forest, that the difference was beyond comparison. Try to imagine
the truth of this scene; clearly see how huge the difference is. The
Buddha then said that, similarly, those things that he had realized
were a great amount, equal to all the leaves in the forest. However, that which was necessary to know, those things that should be
taught and practiced, were equal to the number of leaves in his
hand.
From this it can be seen that, compared to all the myriad
things in the world, the root principles to be practiced for the
complete extinction of dukkha amount to a single handful. We
must appreciate that this single handful is not a huge amount; its
not something beyond our capabilities to reach and understand.
This is the first important point that we must grasp if we want to
lay the foundation for a correct understanding of the Buddhas
teachings.
The saying of the Buddha that deals with the practice regardingsunnata(voidness) is the saying that is the heart of Buddhism.
It requires our careful attention. Nothing whatsoever should be
clung to as I or mine.
("Sabbe dhamma nalam abhinivesaya.)
The Buddha himself declared that this is the summation of
all the Tathagatas [Buddhas] teaching. He said that to have
heard the phrase Sabbe dhamma nalam abhinivesaya is to have
heard everything; to have put it into practice is to have practiced
everything; and to have reaped its fruits is to have reaped every
fruit. So we need not be afraid that there is too much to understand. When the Buddha compared the things that he had realized,
which were as many as all the leaves in the forest, with those that
he taught his followers to practice, which were a single handful,
the single handful he referred to was just this principle of not
grasping at or clinging to anything as being self or as belonging to

self.
To hear this phrase is to hear everything, because all
subjects are contained within it. Of all the things the Buddha
taught, there wasnt one that didnt deal with dukkha and the
elimination of dukkha. Grasping and clinging is the cause of dukkha. When there is grasping and clinging, that is dukkha. When
there is no grasping and clinging - that is, being void of grasping
and clinging - there is no dukkha. The practice is to make the nonarising of grasping and clinging absolute, final, and eternally void,
so that no grasping and clinging can ever return. Just that is
enough. There is nothing else to do.
This practice is every practice. Can you think of anything
that remains to be practiced? In a given moment, if a person whether Mr. Smith, Mrs. Jones, or anyone at all - has a mind free
of grasping and clinging, at that moment, what does the person
have? Please think it over. We can see that the person has attained
all the traditional practices: the Triple Refuge ("tisarana"), giving
("dana"), virtuous conduct ("sila"), meditation ("samadhi"), the discernment of truth ("panna"), and even the path-realizations, their
fruits, and nibbana.
At that moment of non-grasping, one has certainly attained
the first practice, that of the Triple Refuge. One has reached the
Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha, for to have a heart free of
the mental defilements and dukkha is to be one with the heart of
the Triple Gem. One has reached them without having to chant
Buddham saranam gacchami [I take refuge in the Buddha].
Crying out Buddham saranam gacchami and so on is just a ritual,
a ceremony of entrance, an external matter. It doesnt penetrate
to the Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha in the heart. If at any moment a person has a mind void of grasping at and clinging to I
and mine, even if only for an instant, the mind has realized
voidness. It is one and the same as the heart of the Buddha, the
Dhamma, and the Sangha.
The next practice is giving ("dana"). The meaning of giving is to let

10

Atammayatasara

go, to end all grasping at and clinging to things as being I or


mine. At the moment that one has a mind void of egoconsciousness, then one has made the supreme offering, for when
even the self has been given up, what can there be left to give?
Thus, at any moment that a person has a mind truly void of self,
when even the self has been completely relinquished, he or she has
developed giving to its perfection.
To move on to virtuous conduct ("sila"), one whose mind is
void and free of grasping at and clinging to a self or possession of
self, is one whose bodily and verbal actions are truly and perfectly
virtuous. Any other sort of morality is just an up-and-down affair.
We may make resolutions to refrain from this and abstain from
that, but we cant keep them. Whenever the mind is void, even if
its only for a moment, or a day, or a night, one has truesilafor
all of that time.
As for concentration ("samadhi"), the void mind has supreme
samadhi, the superbly focused firmness of mind. A strained and uneven sort of concentration isnt the real thing. Only the mind that
is void of grasping at and clinging to I and mine can have the
true and perfect stability of correct concentration. One who has a
void mind always has correct samadhi.
The next practice ispanna(intuitive wisdom). Here we can
see most clearly that knowing sunnata, realizing voidness - or being
voidness itself - is the essence of wisdom. At the moment that the
mind is void, it is supremely keen and discerning. When a mind is
void of foolishness, void of I and mine, there is perfect knowing, or panna. So the wise say that sunnata and panna (mindfulness
and wisdom) are one. Once the mind is rid of delusion, it discovers
its primal state, the true original mind.
We can go on to the path-realizations, their fruits, and nibbana. Here the progressively higher levels of voidness reach their

("parama-sunnata").
Now, you may see that from taking refuge and progressing through
giving, virtuous conduct, concentration, and wisdom, there is
nothing other than sunnata, or non-clinging to self. Even in the
path-realizations, their fruits, and nibbana, theres nothing more
than voidness. In fact, they are its highest, most supreme level.
Consequently, the Buddha declared that to have heard this
teaching is to have heard all teachings, to have put it into practice
is to have done all practices, and to have reaped the fruits of that
practice is to have reaped all fruits: Nothing whatsoever should be
clung to as I or mine. ("Sabbe dhamma nalam abhinivesaya.")
You must strive to grasp the essence of what this word voidness
really means.
